Happy New Year Indeed...

Another year comes to an inevitable end. This year brought out the best and worst from us all, be it world problems, music, art or ourselves. I would like to thank each and every single person that takes their time to pass thru these Giant post halls filled with talent and thought because without you... there is no WGM. Cheesy? Yeah a little but it's true because the very basic idea of WGM is people collaborating and come together to fulfill their dreams and visions in life and art. Everyone that has asked for help, started projects, found their new favorite artists or worked with them, this is for you. You all have shown me what is possible if you set your mind to it and bring it out or share with others, a constant daily lesson is learned from my readers and the artists that I have come to know personally or post about. To those that have shown love to WGM, it's been a fantastic experience and seeing where it has taken me has been fun so thank you for that. Artists that have asked for my ears or eyes, it's an honor to be able to help with your ideas, albums and designs. When Giants Meet isn't about just one person, it's about many whom share the same mindset of expansion and betterment of all art-forms especially life, it's amazing to see folks use this blog and idea to make a change or incorporate it in their lives somehow.

True Giants stand tall and preserve the good, thank you for believing in me and my message. Much love to all and hope everyone has a fantastic night and new year. Live, Love, Laugh.

Peace

One Day Later MLK Thoughts

I'm not going to spin and weave impossible ideas and dreams for what the world should be, but yes this is my Martin Luther King Jr. dream posting so there will be some hopes said while keeping the real world at mind. We have come a long way as people with our differences but unfortunately some hate towards each other still lives in one way or another. Yes I hope to have my son live in a future where cultural and racial difference is a good thing and not divided solely because of it. Embrace all the good in differences and we shall all grow to be better, let's start to lead by example for our kids if not for us. There have been many families hurt because of the unknown knowledge or ignorance towards other people and cultures, instead of spreading that same negative energy even more let's all come together as people and find out the why's or what of each other.

We can learn a lot by watching our young and how they interact with each other because of our influence, labels, or hateful words. It can spawn a bigger and uglier monster that we might not be able to control in the future. I'm not saying for the world to be lollipops and gumdrops because it will never be that, but lets all try to make it a little better here by at least being nicer to each other. Being harmful or causing problems to others doesn't invite anything good and never will, it will just come back (Karma) to you in one way or another when you least expect it. People tend to forget that they wouldn't want the same hateful and evil treatment they are dishing out, only thinking about how funny or hilarious a personal attack can be.

Let other be... differences and all they aren't harming anyone just because they aren't exactly like you. I am a firm believer in embracing our differences and learning from our mistakes, doing harm to a person should be something of the past by now because life is too short for all that nonsense. Peace, love, and understanding are fighting to be recognized every single day and it doesn't help that we won't open that door to let them in. What's wrong with being peaceful, or caring for others... is it not cool? I for one will keep trying my best to uphold the message of peace and understanding, I hope others join in and realize what a wonderful place it would be if we all accept each other and stop trying to ruin the lives of our fellow neighbor.

Lennon the Walrus

[youtube width="600" height="360"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmR0V6s3NKk[/youtube]A great interview by rogue 14yr old Jerry Levitan in 1969 put together with an amazing visual look by James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina. Jerry snuck into Lennon's hotel room and convinced him to do an interview. The message was always the same with John Lennon... peace. Find your own way to believe and fight for peace.
