Just Keep Livin’

Before I was watching Dazed and Confused, you know, the 90’s Cult stoner film? If you know it then Alright alright alright. Onwards with the post. In the film there is a scene near the end that shows a group of friends in the middle of a football field. They are talking about their lives and what their futures entail. Within this scene is a few memorable quotes. One being this   Where I live is quite a deprived area. I am certainly not saying that I live a deprived life as that is not the case, in fact I believe it is quite the opposite. In a world full of pretentious biggots and me disliking the ideology behind being “wealthy” I would say I live a very fortunate life. Despise all this there always seems to be somthing missing. The urge to do somthing for me. I believe this is down to the concrete jungle on top of a great big hill that I live in. I do not feel like I belong here. I know various different people who have moved to many different places and are loving life. Whether they return back to their origins is another matter. I am talking about right now and the not so distant future. Back to the film. Do I want to be “stuck in this place” no. I certainly do not want to say “I did the best I could” because in this modern era the world is minuscule. Everywhere is accessible for everyone and I believe the “best I could” where I live is a mere  knife in the ocean.

I do not know where I want to go or where I will end up, all I know is that I will go where I feel I belong in life.
But for now, I will reiterate another quote from that scene. 

“You just gotta keep livin’ man. L-i-v-i-n”

Dr Martens appreciation 

Today was the delivery of my Dr Martens 1461’s. As someone who bought a new pair and went through the process of breaking them in… Actually lets reword that. As someone who bought a new pair and is still going through the process of breaking them in. I decided, smartly, to buy a pair of used ones. The best decision ever! Let some other person go through that initial pain for you (insert evil villain laugh here). Anyways I love them! Another pair to the on growing collection. 

 

Jackson Pollock at the Tate Liverpool

I am going to start this post by apologising for breaking the rule of no photographs. Due to my background it is now an inate response to try and take a photograph whenever the opportunity arises, therefore I took one photograph from my iPhone. Hey ho.

This exhibition was stunning. I actually did not know what to expect from it, as my brief encounter with Jackson Pollock through some reasearch online did not reveal any kind of amazement. My first impression could not be more incorrect, I loved this exhibition. Each piece of artwork has its own story and me and my very close friend stood in awe of almost each piece. It is amazing how much of Pollocks life experiences are potrayed within his work. 

  

I am very grateful that my friend invited me on a day trip to go and see the exhibition and I would highly reccomend you to go and see it aswell. Although you only have 8 days left as it is only on show till the 18th of October.
