whats goin on in the world today!?!?!?

Don't answer, it's really no use...
I was on my way home tonight after switching to my new (old) shift, traded one of my weekdays off for Saturday (to help with the business). Had several problematic customers which was like a continuous rollover from my day before (Friday) where I left work a little early to attend a local venue where one of my favs was performing ) "Atmosphere" , we had purchased tickets in advance and ended up selling them (at cost) , just before the show began , I wasn't too happy about that and I won't say why we sold them , mostly cause' I'm not sure...
Anyways, had dinner at my friends new restaurant "The Matchstick" and got into it with my girl on the way home as well as a few
BAD DRIVERS....which leads me to why I began to rant in the first place...
Anybody seen the movie Idiocracy?
I won't go out on a line and try to tell you that it's some kinda of good film , tho pretty funny at times.
In actuality , it's sad really. the things that I see people do where I work (I manage a laundromat in a lower income community) would leave any normal thinking human in disbelief, and leads me to see the sad truth of that film...
I've been at a loss lately people, that may have a little to do with my lack of blogging or blog surfing... the scams, the viruses, the haters, cats who ask and say dumb shit...THE MAN...
where do you start, where does it end???
They're adding more chemicals in the smokes...No time for my art , I haven't recorded in almost 5 years, living check to check slaving my ass off for someone else , just to give it all away before I see a dime.
You know what I consider shopping?, now is getting the gas just to get back and forth to work and deal with all the non-driving arseholes on the road who forgot why they even left the damn house to begin with , all out shopping and shit and getting in my way... A/C don't wanna act right so I'm sweating like a stuck pig, realizing all I've got left to do today is my own damn laundry, oh smack I done went gone off the deep end.... meanwhile everyone of my homies have been getting kicked out of their homes by their girlfriends , and these fools just worried bout "kickin it" WTF?
I think This "Red_Stripe" is working...yaknowimean?
sorry to carry on I just had to spew some B.S. out....
to those of you who have stayed true you know I know who u r!
thx for stickin by,,,,all the other blog bros keepin it real even through the tough times I got mad love and respect for...
I must admit I haven't touched any records 'cept for that R.P. jernt which y'all gota know isa classic , and I was kinda surprised to not have seen more comments on it (it was d/l'd almost 300 times by the second day it was up),but that ain't why I do this shit.
those of y'all who may know a lil bit about me already know that I do this cos I just love to share music and where I'm from folks just don't seem to have any appreciation for good stuff...
But I'll be honest I can't keep up with the other blogs out there, of course I could bomb thousands of albums on y'all on a regular basis tons that I've already shared and tons I've never even touched but I think it's time to retire.
I don't want y'all to keep checkin in, only to see I haven't done anything in weeks...
shits in chaos right now, and this is something that just has to be put on a far back-burner...
I hope that I haven't let anyone down in the time that I've been doin this and y'all continue to enjoy good music no matter where you are ....
Keep On Keepin On!
Sincerely ....
Doctor Okehdius Deft.
I'mma try n roll out with some grooves....
Red_Cross_Store_--_Mississippi Fred McDowell
Coffee_Cold_--__Galt MacDermot
It's_No_Mistake_--_Darrow_Fletcher IMO one of the coldest cuts EVER!
I_Still_Love_You_--_Unknown anutha super bad ass burner , don't sleep!
(I'll just be adding to this list till I get too drunk to stay up)
PEAS.........(currently down to 2 smokes and a stripe & a half)

I dunno you personally, I drop by once in a while to check out a selection here and there...I read your rant just now and all I can tell you is that you need a little Jesus in your life.
what you're experiencing right now is end times and It ain't getting any better bro.
You can call me names dismiss me as a crackpot...whatever..all I'm going to tell you is we are on fastrack to ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT and basically in all good countries the standards of living are gonna keep droppin until they get us to 3rd world level.
But you're smart I know you see the shit hittin' the fan.
Anyway wait till the powers that be put all the eggs into the basket of the one world leader to come...you heard of him, his last name is antichrist!
I can't say it enough...get with Jesus bro, God Bless !!!!

It's been a long ride Dr. and anybody that has been rididing would appreciate all you've done and continue to do!! I have hit a bunchs of hardship myself and posted stuff I just knew some cats would be chirping about, yet clicks and no comments is the ongoing theme, and yet I actually understand that, just don't like it one damn bit!!!It grows on you until you contemplate quiting then you get a comment that motivates you again then the same thing once again!! Tell the truth Dr. I have been thinking about shutting down myself however I always remember why I do what I do and a lot of it is cause of cats like you, who did what you did for me, hope I'm making sense since I'm typing faster than I am thinking!!

Whatever you do I just want to say Thank YOu especially if this becomes the last opportunity to do so!! The other thing is I guess you're wasted by now so you may have different thoughts at another time!! Take care homie!!!

Vincent the Soul Chef said...

Ain't nothin' I can say... I'm feelin some of that chaos myself. It's all gonna work out fine in the end. We gotta keep on keepin' on no matter what. It was a great run and you sure blessed us all. I wish nothing but the best. Stay strong!

Peace and blessings.

i've been trying to figure some shit out myself...that's why when i come around it's never on schedule. one day i woke up outside the matrix (as defined by morpheus), now every day is question after question without answers. i watch people on their shit all the time, and they never let me down. either they don't know no better or don't care to know. whatever goes down and no matter how hard it gets, keep yo' PMA (positive mental attitude) intact. can't thank you enough for all the work you put in and the knowledge i gained. if i could return the favor, there'd be no hesitation. well, yo, i hope you do check in from time to time. stay elevated!

Chin up geeza,

years been hard for me too. Almost slept on the streets/lost my house. but I just got another job in time.

Im also doing some volunteering for a homeless charity. If you ever want something to put life into perspective try some volunteer work and not just the work you do for us (which I appreciate to the max). Where would I be without the few blogs like this that are just 'real' for wanting to find a better word.

Maximum Peace
