Time Magazine, just be yourself

Time Magazines Top 100 Albums of all time.
Dear Time Magazine,
WTF. Time magazine please leave the reviewing of music to those that know a little something about it. Your top 100 albums of all time is a travesty to the world of Journalism.

"We researched and listened and agonized until we had a list of the greatest and most influential records ever - and then everyone complained because there was no Pink Floyd on it. And that's exactly how it should be."

First, how the fuck can you leave Pink Floyd off the list? Kanye West yes, Pink Floyd no? And I like Kanye, but he's not better than Floyd. What the hell are you thinking. Can you honestly tell me that Kanye fucking West has made a greater impact on this world with "College Drop Out" than Floyd with "Dark Side of the Moon." It's a joke.

Secondly, a greatest albums of all time list does NOT CONSIST OF GREATEST HITS CD's. Sweet fucking Christ!! Come on Time get it together, the idea of an album is that you listen to it from start to finish as assembled by the original artist not some two bit record execs, hacking some songs together to squeeze another nickel out of Elvis' estate.

22 Visual Communicators Can't Be Wrong

Came across this link

This link speaks on something that I think about daily. It all goes back to the never-ending question -- "What is my purpose in this world?" But this speaks to that on a smaller scale. As an artist - a designer, what am I doing to help this world? What message am I trying to send? Well right now I am not sending any message, seeing as that I havn't designed or drawn for personal reasons in longer than I like to think about. How do I get out of this rut? Not really sure, but hopefully it will end soon because I can't take much more of this.

We are all together.

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
- The Beatles

I really really like this line. It was on the Buddhist quote of the day. I feel bad regurgitating all of these quotes and references without any words of my own. Haven't really had time lately to sit down and reflect on things. I need to work that into this weekend.

Idea

An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea. - Buddha

Exercise your SOUL

Liberation from the bondage of rebirth. According to the Vedantists the self, which they call the atman and we call the soul, is distinct from the body and its senses, distinct from the mind and its intelligence; it is not part of the Absolute, for the Absolute, being infinite, can have no parts, but the Absolute itself. It is uncreated; it has existed from eternity and when at last it has cast off the seven veils of ignorance will return to the infinitude from which it came.
-W. Somerset magma
