Currently reading Neal Stephenson - Anathem   very deep speculative fiction, the 1st 100pages were very hard going cos you have to basically learn an alien culture before you can actually get into the story, but its f***ing zinging along right now (page 300)

I can strongly recommend Jared Diamond - Guns, Germs and Steel    f***ING dense, i kept on having to reread the 20 - 35 pages prior to my stopping point to refresh my shit before continuing, even if I stopped earlier that day, and I couldnt read more than 100pages at a time without a long break, but it blew my mind, but maybe thats just because i was an impressionable student who spent of his time f***ed up, at the time.

speaking from my own experience i cant say that any 1 period (childhood/young adulthood/middle age/ etc) HAS to be anything, or follow any particular structure.

Your life goes that way cos your folks think it should at 1st, but f*** it they making it up as they go along most of the time anyway, so nothing stops you from saying "f*** this my way over here is where its at!!" but YOU.

Many of us allow the world around us to prescribe what our lives should be and going along can work for you, at least in part cos society is easier on those who are active parts of it.
If you wanna break the mold you have to work harder , or not... you can be a slacker/unrealised potential stereotype (the majority) or the seldom seen self made success story.
But thats always in other peoples eyes, some people are sure they're the self made success, but to other people they look like the slacker/unrealised potential stereotype.

Since everybody else is gonna have their own opinion given to them anyway, why should you give a f***?
And if you not happy with the state of your own life then what sort of pussy are you that you cant change shit?

I'm lucky enough to know and work and play with people who i view as very successful, and a number of them dont agree with my view completely, cos they want more. Cool for them, they must make themselves happy, same goes for me.

Your life is exactly what you want it to be, your issues have as much power over you as you give them, theres always another way it just depends if that way is acceptable to you.

Dont have enough money? Start a business or rob a bank, your choice... as long as you can make peace with yourself on it, why does my opinion matter?
if you try to rob me accept that i will do my best to kill you, but if you didnt accept that then tough shit son, its not my job to make you self aware.

just quickly back to those successful folks i know, a number of them have been singularly focussed since childhood. All they did was who they are, be it as musicians, artists and entrepenuers and most of them have been successful from the jump. They only cared about their music and so money just came and still doesnt mean shit.

Others like me werent as self aware immediately and were only vaguely aware of our life focus, so we tried everything and didnt find a fit till frustration drove us to suck up the tears and stop being a whiny c*** and MAKE something work.

Thats self awareness, and it comes whenever you make it come for most of us.

Making money is easy, getting pussy is easy, getting power is easy. There are an infinite number of ways to do all these things you just have to find the one that you can make work. For some of us its rapping or running a business or being an employee, for others its moving weight, robbing and raping.   

I got my a** kicked alot at first, but not in ages, but i havent been in a fight in a long time, and i stopped fighting cos winning got boring. I've broken some laws, I've hurt women emotionally, i've built a fantastic tool (my body) and have spent more than a decade destroying it. I've been damaged and felt and seen shit that still gives me the occasional nightmare. I've made huge mistakes and faced ugly consequences and i've taken only slightly more steps forward than backward, but they all resulted in who i am and i'm happy with that.

If you aren't, WHAT THE f*** HAVE YOU BEEN DOING ALL THIS TIME?

There might be a niche opportunity but as an entrepeneur myself, I don't see a niche sneaker brand surviving long ehough to thrive in SA at least, being no expert on business conditions in the rest of Africa, without considerable seed capital, like seriously considerable. Cos niche means small numbers, means high cost of production and therefore extremely high retail price to make a profit. So now you got a Jordan or Adidas et al at like a grand for a sick kick, and you got this niche local sneak, where for the same quality of construction, depth of design and technology its at least double or 2.5x the price. Thats a tough sell, you'd need to be able to swallow like 3 years at least of a hard loss and just write it off as brand building, before you could even look at break-even point.
In my view best option would be like doing niche local customs of the big brands and hopefully build enough of a following so you can go to one of the majors and try to push for a special custom range with your design. Even then its a long shot, unless you can GUARANTEE brand growth, and i mean business guarantee where you sign a contract and there are serious penalties if that guarantee isnt met. I haven't got anywhere near the capital to fund that effectively so good luck to whoever has the nuts big enough to try.

well the answer to that is simple but the emotions involved are complex. Fact is there is no local manufacturer of footware that can compare price and quality wise in SA, you gotta go china, thailand or easter bloc like bulgaria. Sure you might be able to get good quality here but at volume and a good price 4get it. Our labour laws, hugely complex and contradictory in many respects as they are, are very good about dealing with large scale exploitation of workers so that earning $2/day shit dont cut it here.
Hell in china Foxconn, who make EVERYTHING (including all yo Apple iShit) just raised there minimum wages to like $7 - $12/day, the top end being lower management. We cant compete, and any serious brand that wants to make sustainable business needs to order volumes big enough to have comparative cost price to Nike et all (tween $15 - $22/pair) but you also need a market big enough to actually buy all those pairs and unfortunately South Africans as a whole got no time for local brands. That and local retailers generally dont wanna f***in know about local brands, they feel the risk is too high. So its all of our fault.

1 - If she's ugly, why do you care what you come across as? Just go take a piss and don't come back. In fact have her meet you at whatever venue, you dont wanna be responsible for her ride.
2 - always check for an adam's apple.
3 - if you gonna hit it, dont let her choose the place, it might be a scam to roll you, watch out for accomplices.

All men live with this vague understanding that all you women are "out there & a bit weird", but its when we're presented with the coal-face of f***ing nuts that is BGOL that we all need to take a step back and say:
GATDAYUM THESE BITCHES IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

I can relate to both brick and Anna, worst is though, when you see this ex whose buck wilin' with random nukkahs for weeks and you feel inspired to take her one side and get all:
"Yo sis, like we cool and all and our time is over but as some1 who respects you i think you might wanna reevaluate your choices vis a vis these triflin mofo's that are bandying your name about town, you better than that..."
And she mistakenly hears this as:
 "I still love you, please stop banging all these guys and stalk me, thank you..."

Which is some uncomfortable shit to have to explain to your new girl, as to why the strange woman is throwing stink eyes at her, from the car parked by the 7-11 across the road.

I need some advice. Where's Raiko or anyone who knows about Djing.

What would I need to use this? Can I just plug it into my laptop anduse the provided software to play my music and mix etc? I also wanna learn to scratch, so will this suffice for a complete starter in the world of itchy music?
http://www.djmixclub.co.za/Main.asp?D={087B2A85-28D5-477A-B38A-779251F9FB72}&PageType=Product&SKU=NUMMXTRK&CategoryID=38

In general I and many of the other DJ's i know would steer away from one piece units as if one part breaks (and trust if you starting out and gonna be manhandling those platters and cross faders, shit will break and need servicing/replacement) the whole thing must go in and they will charge a disa**embly cost cos there is a shitload of wiring and boards there they not supposed to f*** with.
Also the cheaper it is the quicker it breaks, in general, of the cdjs pioneer ones are still hardy as f***, just buy used on gumtree.
or spring for mid range gemini's but rather just buy proper Technics or Vestax turntables and get Serato or Final Scratch.
I've had turntables for more than a decade, (1210s) and have them serviced like every 4-6 years and they work exactly as when i bought them, used and 5yrs old. and those 1st 5yrs they were the main gear at a rowdy coloured club in the hood.

I'm basically seeing this as another stepping stone to my ultimate goal of world domination.

Not if I get there first.

I'll only stay as long as I feel comfortable or till I get a better offer. If that university job comes through, I'll be breaching my contract and going there.

Best advice I ever gave.
