Sad news today in the music world, singer Chester Bennington of Linkin Park committed suicide this morning and I was talking to my mom about him committing suicide and now I’m not much of a Linkin Park fan, I’ve really only liked one of their songs from years ago. But I still know what they’ve brought to music over the years, so I know what loss this is to many people that have always loved Linkin Park. But as I said I was talking to my mom about him committing suicide and I was telling her that he said that he had been molested as a child and my mom was like well him killing himself because of that was stupid and that he was stupid for killing himself over something that happened so many years ago in his life. And I was trying to tell her that being molested is something that a person will have to deal with for the rest of their lives and she has no clue what that kind of pain feels like because she’s never been molested. But she just kept saying that he’s dumb ass hell for killing himself over something that happened so many years ago and that plenty of people have been molested and they don’t kill themselves.
And yes my mom does have a point when she says that plenty of people have been molested as children and they haven’t killed themselves but everybody doesn’t deal with things the same way or handle things the same way. And things affects everybody differently and clearly for Chester Bennington he just couldn’t handle living what happened to him on this earth, clearly he couldn’t handle the pressures of whatever happened in his life and he felt like the only way out was to take his own life. Now I personally will never agree with somebody taking their own life, to me that’s a cowardly and selfish ass thing to do and killing yourself doesn’t just affect your life, it also affects the people that love you and in this case he had six children that need and depend on him. And he was selfish as hell to take himself away from his children more then anything, along with all the people that love and care about him.
And there are so many ways the handle that kind of depression, it’s 2017, there’s so reason why about should feel like suicide is the way to go, when there’s so much help out there now for that type of depression. And to me to kill yourself is the cowardly way out, you’re choosing to end it all instead of living and dealing with your issues head on. But I guess that he did what he felt like he had to do but I personally think that anybody that’s selfish enough to kill themselves are cowards and I do believe that they will burn in hell for all eternity like the bible says but I also can’t imagine what that kind of pain and depression feels like but I also could never be that kind of selfish or that much of a coward! But I pray that his family and his kids more then anything can find some kind of peace and can find a way to live with his passing!
So the other day I was watching N’Sync called it’s gonna be me and for some reason I found the video to be so hilarious and I was noticing how amazing of a video it was choreography wise and the music video treatment also. And it was so crazy to me because it wasn’t the first time that I’ve seen this video but it was the first time that I’ve this video in probably about 15 years or so. So seeing this video now as a 32 year old adult made me it in different eyes and actually have an opinion of the video.
Seeing this video as an adult made me see all the hard work that went into this video, the treatment of this particular video was such an amazing and ahead of its time video. Whoever wrote this video was a smart writer and the choreography was amazingly done and every move had to be on point. It just amazed me that as an adult I actually have an opinion of a video that I’ve probably seen hundreds of times as a teenager and back then I didn’t think anything of it. But now as an adult I find this video hilarious and I see all the hard work that was behind this particular video.
It just blew my mind how different age and time can change ones outlook on something that they’ve seen or experienced before but at a different/younger time in their life. I actually like this video a lot more now seeing it through adult eyes and seeing this video for what it really is. And not to mention that no video has ever made me laugh the way that this video did, it’s down right hilarious to me. I love it so much, as I always have, just more now. Amazing/great/ahead of it’s time video!
I watched an episode of this show called unsung about music artist/groups that at one time in their career had amazing success and now they aren’t as successful/famous anymore or they may be dead or had members of their group die over the years. Long story short is they did a episode about this now iconic group called Lisa Lisa and the cult and I was looking at her hairstyle from back in the 1980’s and I was like wow this is crazy to see a hair style from over 30’s ago now be the same kind of hairstyles that we now wear today.
Looking at Lisa Lisa hair, I’m like wow we are now getting our haircut just like how she wore her hair all those years ago, its just another reminder of how life changes but stays the same also. And I actually love how Lisa Lisa wore her haircut back then and she said on this episode of unsung that she actually cut her hair like this on accident because she had been cutting her own hair and she cut to much off on one side. So I would have to say that she probably should get the credit for starting a hairstyle that has carried on for over 30 plus years.
