There’s one thing that makes for a happy life… And that’s LIFE itself (and all its fucked up lows, ecstatic highs, anxieties, worries, fears as well as its joys, self-fulfillments and celebrations.) + The philosophy of: Gang of Youths’ Say Yes to Life.

Say you’ve been a bad boy or girl and you’ve been sentenced to death. On the day, your time is approaching and you know your life will soon be over. There will be nothing left for you to do, or hope for, or experience or hope to experience one day. You …

Um, did the lead singer of The Similou even know he was being filmed here? This isn’t ‘Dance like no one’s watching’, this is ‘Dance like you don’t even know you’re actually filming a music video right now.’ (& Another reason why this is the greatest Love/Breakup song in the history of all the musics ever)

This is how to NAIL life… Just be in your own zone, happy to do whatever you do, regardless of what people think of it (as long as you know, you’re not hurting them in some way). That is the lead singer of The Similou doing exactly that. Just doing …

This is the greatest Love/Break Up song in all the history of all the musics ever – The philosophy of: All This Love (and Rainbow Stylin’)

There’s nothing more absurd, while being amazing at the same time, as love. But the closest thing is art. And there aren’t any other things we dive into, embark upon blindly or get completely swept away by. But nothing connects us to each other than those two things. And love (and break up) songs …

These are the two greatest love songs in the history of all the musics ever… The (ridiculous, desperate, but beautiful) absurdity of: Love Songs [pt.1] – ‘Baby I Love Your Way’ & ‘Happy Birthday Helen’

How can there be 68,000,000,000,021 love songs (and even ones where the guy says he’ll ‘jump in front of a train for ya‘) in a world where people still find making love work at best a mystery, and at worst, a labour? Because there’s only 2 ways we can truly …

‘Got dirt, got air, got water and I know you can carry on…’ – The Philosophy of: Modest Mouse – The Good Times are Killing Me

If you’ve got water, oxygen to breathe, some shelter to maintain your body temperature, and some sort of food to get nutrients from (or dirt.) you’re good.  If you’ve got existence, you’ve got what you need (everything else in life is a bonus). Think of all the people who don’t …

‘It is your life. Invent yourself and then reinvent yourself; don’t swim in the same slough.’ – The philosophy of: Charles Bukowski (Is a life stripped of goals and dreams a meaningless one?) + The philosophy of: Modest Mouse

Is an ambition-free life, one ‘free’ of dreams a meaningless one? Is existence completely in the present a purposeless one?  In Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot, a man is sentenced to death by firing squad but minutes before he’s shot, he is pardoned. In those minutes expecting his death though, he realises …

The Philosophy of: California. Go on, try name one place on the planet that’s had more songs written about it than that one.

Why the hell are there about exactly million songs written about some state (just 1 of 50) that stretches for about 850 miles along the Pacific Ocean, in the south west corner of a huge ass country that’s as big as Europe (minus Russia and all that)? It’s because California …

Everything is actually going to be alright (and is) – The philosophy of: No Woman No Cry

If you’re having a day where you’re worried, anxious or uncertain (is that a bad thing?), listen to this – it’s impossible to keep feeling the same way. You can always go to your Kokomo, anytime, and anywhere you are. And the same goes for this: Because if you’re alive, you are …
