VULNERABILITY POST: Hey y'all, it's ya bibbidy boi, boinana in the mix 🍌 For all the people who ask, "How are you?" without expecting a genuine response, well, ask and ye shall receive:

I've been going through it. And that's fine. I know feeling fine and being fine are two different things. However, I've decided to honour the things that help me feel fine πŸ•Š One of those things is refraining from social media. Many of us have been blessed w becoming artists* (everyone is an artist, we just gotta practice πŸ–Œ). We've also been blessed w the struggles of developing as artists while maintaining a social "presence" πŸ“ˆ Competing to be relevant WHILE simultaneously growing as an artist can be draining 😩 I've heard to become a successful artist takes 20% skill and 80% marketing. I don't know what that says about successful art but I do know what my heART says #ayy Reflecting on my trip to Colombia, where I had my phone on airplane mode for 10 days straight, I've decided to listen to my heart and sign off social media for a bit πŸ’“ I know I could be jeopardizing my career but it is my belief that "lo que es para ti, nadie puede quitarte!!" πŸ™Œ

PS At first, I thought it was a tad melodramatic to make this post when I could just sign off LOL However, I figured, in making this post I would be commiting and hopefully relating to some of y'all. After all, we on the same team out here!! PSS Y'all can still call me or email me. Actually, I DARE YOU 😜

g2g ttyl!!! :) *mystercraig has logged off*

Peep this secci interview from @pagoda_media πŸ’‹πŸ― We talk death metal reggaeton, underage fans, and what Pagoda is all about bby!! πŸ“½πŸ’₯ Shout out to @thedreamlab.creative for putting together the event and @wynwoodyard for hosting it!!

Hey y'all!! I've been on and off social media, our relationship is complicated (we workin on it 😌) But I do feel compelled to share!! The trip to Colombia I recently went on was bonkers. Insane. Brilliant. Cold and wet and sweaty and smelly πŸ‘ƒ At times, I felt like I was on a walking (hiking/swimming) meditation, an observer to the world. At other times, an active participant, free of indecision and filled with intuitive direction. Again, some (many) times I was physically less than comfortable. (Dry clothes is a blessing!!) But what is discomfort but a flavour of experience?? A bitter bite of ginger in the plant based sushi roll of life?? πŸ₯ I was IN IT y'all. Which brings me to the core tenant of this post; I KNOW Y'ALL CAN BE IN IT TOO. I know we all out here, persevering through our daily challenges. Some times the work-out of reality leaves our spirit muscles sore. But think about the gains!!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’― I know it may seem costly and I am all for finacial priority. But traveling ain't gotta be expensive!!! TRANSPARENCY REPORT: For 10 days abroad, transportation between three cities, six days at hostels, food, and a four day guided trek up through the jungle, I spent less than $1000. And lemme tell you, I was ballin' in Colombia β›Ή I know it ain't free B, but how many sillier things do we spend our money on?? I just spent $8 at Starbucks for one drink!! JUDGE ME. The point is that we can save money and before we know it, we can exchange those funny papers into experiences!! I had a friend whose birthday recently passed. Whenever I'd tell her one of my fantastical one-day tales she would respond, "If not now, then when?". She has since passed on from this plane but her message remains!! Time is our ONLY bank, and the currency is NOW πŸ’± If you got any questions about the trek, hostels I stayed at, my vegan journey in the jungle, etc holla at ur boi!! πŸ—£πŸ™Œ Stay blessed, and stay motivated y'all!! And if you got other destinations than to travel, let the message transcend, get at them!!

Is Social Media Evil? 😱

Howdy y'all. Ya boi has been resistant, to say the least, about posting this post. For the past week or so I have been on a social media fast. Instagram, in particular, can be v emotionally taxingπŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’² Sometimes, we may find ourselves mindlessly scrolling through the explore page for a quick distraction or incessantly browsing our friend's stories to avoid fomo. At worst, we can feel isolated and less than worthy simply by comparing our behind the scenes life to everybody else's highlight reels πŸ“½πŸ˜“ Fasting has been swell. Actually, it's been better than swell. It's been luxurious πŸ’… Without addictive phone checking, I cultivated the discipline to invest in the moment. I have had more time to focus on my endeavors, on my purpose, on things "that matter" πŸ€”

However, part of my purpose as an artist* (we ALL artist out here so listen up πŸ”Š) is to com-mu-ni-cate. Be it verbally, emotionally, musically or visually, our duty is to radically express ourselves. An expression is only communicated when it is shared πŸ—£ A large part of that sharing is managing our relationship with social media. The power of technology is insane, y'all know that. But, w great power comes sicc web powers πŸ’₯ Something like that. It's like finally having the power to prepare food for ourselves. We, too, must cultivate the power to watch what, and how much, we eat. Yeah, conscious eating can be a drag, but is that a reason to stop eating? 🍝

So, is social media evil?? 😈 We may have our opinions but it is most certainly a tool, possibly one of the most powerful tools at our disposal. The solution, and danger, beget the same question, "What is our relationship with Social Media"? Is it constructive, nourishing, and empowering? Or is it destructive, addictive, and paralyzing? At what point does the medicine become the poison?? πŸ’‰ Share your thoughts w me!! πŸ’­

As I, and everyone of us, continue to explore our relationships w social media, may we do so w honesty, respect, and compassion. Stay up, stay blessed y'all!! πŸ•ŠβœŒ PS - ya boi has a show tomorrow at @brooklynvintageandvinyl w @diivories, @salasband, n @moongazur. Music starts at 8pm, come philosophize w us!!πŸ‘³
