Red Versus Blue - Polarizing Society

Please don't take the use of colours in this post as being anything related to the symbolism of political party colours, because that's not what it relates to. Colours are symbols. Ambiguous and can literally mean and be interpreted as anything.  Problems always arise when you worship the symbol more so than what it stands for. In these times, polarization refers to being bounced around between diametrically opposed symbols, via colours. So these colours are not a reference to party politics. Here's something quite interesting, and its certainly indicative of a much larger and more complex challenge in society. On the morning of the Uvalde school attack in the United States, in my own community in Regent Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and about two to three hours before the actual time of the attack, several people in my community, many of whom I refer to simply as a cult, began harassing me excessively. This started in the wee hours of the morning of 24th of May of this

Drawing And Just An Illusion: Some Recent Content From My YouTube Channel...

Here are a couple of videos I recently posted, one where I actually (attempt) to draw something. This is actually quite a feat for me considering I haven't really drawn anything away from the computer and on paper for decades (perhaps two or three decades in all). I did do some initial design work for the characters on paper, but it was very quick and sketchy (though my initial pencil drawing design for Weltherwithsp was quite good).


So this was just an exercise to focus on an interest I had long ago. Hopefully, I haven't forgotten how.




This next will be of interest to lovers of music and musicians alike. In this video, I explain and demonstrate live a song I recorded years ago (one of the first on my YouTube channel) called Just An Illusion. If you watch it (it's fairly short), you'll see one of the reasons I called it Just An Illusion.



Hopefully I'll be back underway by Monday with writing after the social harassment beating I took recently. But the best thing you can do any time you're knocked down by life's challenges, or mean people is to  get up, brush yourself off and get back at it.


Thank you for reading and watching,
