“The truth is just a bottle we never opened”

By Lartinos, published on Oct 8, 2012

Gotta go against the grain when others think you’re insane, all in the name of not being plain.

Gotta stand out to be seen,

Gotta say what you mean,

Gotta stay honest and clean.

It’s not about thinking outside the box, it’s about creating a new box with a different shape that others couldn’t contemplate.

Taking that feeling of stress that others repress and turning it into success.

Stare into that mirror with your eyes wide open and embrace

Your faults and realize they are your fault. If not look closer and closer until those thoughts divide... (more)

Commercialization and the music industry.

By Lartinos, published on Sep 28, 2012

By commercialized society I mean our community here in the United States is based on the promotion and advancement of commercial interests (making money). In our formative years we are in a phase of our life where we are trying to realize who we are and what we like.

Personal connections originate from being a genuine individual the individuals that I create space between. Without that space they only bring you down for their selfish reasons. Once you understand that, it makes walking away that much easier.

Politician - the literal meaning

By Lartinos, published on Nov 10, 2011

It all comes back to their selfishness. Having a mentality of only caring about yourself and not the masses. Many of you agree with what I am saying I am sure. So why do we have people who we all think of as morally bankrupt individuals as the leaders of this country? One reason is the follower mentality that too many of us take. Instead of thinking for ourselves we turn to others or the media to make decisions for us. Why? Because it is easier and we are also trusting by nature. Also because of the lack of education we have growing up about who politcians are and what they actually do. Everything... (more)

People who receive welfare should be drug tested

By Lartinos, published on Nov 8, 2011

If you haven't already gotten into a debate with family or friends about this topic of drug testing for welfare benefits, you probably will soon and it will bring up many questions in your mind. But, lets first talk about what the point of this assistance is for people.

Financial assistance is something that is meant to help people back on their feet, but many people assume it is for lazy people who really don't try. The current system has helped lead many of us in this direction for good reason. At one point my mother was on welfare and that government assistance for my brothers and... (more)
