Before The Flood is a must watch starring Leonardo DiCaprio on his quest to sensitise the world on the effects of climate change and bring light to the monumental part we are playing especially the industrial world. Continue reading
We talk about “change” like we can speak it into fruition. But we sit back and say “I don’t have to make that sacrifice, someone else can”. If we all sit back and expect others to do what’s necessary our future will continue to look bleaker. It’s time to RISE UP!
RISE UP against Climate Change, Poverty, Racism, Gender Inequality, Sexual Violence, Unemployment, Health Care
An oldie but ever so relevant! The most powerful lyrics throughout the song:
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want
It’s time we wake up and be proactive in paving our own way. We can’t depend on a system that expects us to live on $1 when cost of living is $5. Self sustainability is key!
The message is in the music, take a listen.
A dose of history and science; I found this documentary captivating as well as informative. A good volcano film always seems to fulfill the inner Volcanologist in me.
What an amazing documentary portraying ocean life, it’s beautiful but scary – from the mother-child bond to the predator-prey dynamic. It’s imperative that we show consideration to all the organisms that call the ocean home and keep it pollution free. I hope you are enlightened and intrigued as much as I was.
A song whose lyrics is relevant AND is accompanied by an appropriate video is very rare!
“And when a gunman makes choice
I wonder what goes through a gunman’s mind
And does a gunman think twice?
Before him takes another someone’s life?
I wonder what it is a gunman say
To the Father when a gunman pray
Does he kiss his kids to bed at night?
Making sure the blanket tucked just right?”

“Distant Relatives” is undoubtedly the best musical collaboration of its time created by two of the music industry’s lyrical geniuses. Each song has a message and collectively takes you on a spiritual journey; makes you see aspects of life from a different perspective and leaves you questioning. It entails topics such as Political corruption, poverty, violence, survival, the importance of seeking knowledge, Rastafari and Africa (The Motherland).
Jr. Gong is a great talent and is indeed the “Youngest Veteran”. His unique sound and flow gets you on a high. As for Nas, he has remained true to his craft and is one of the most underrated artiste. I admire the fact that his music is raw and a true representation of his life.
This album has gotten me through some tough days!
Now listen to 1 hour, 2 minutes and 25 seconds of good music and hold a Firm Meditation.
The best instrumental of this song and my favourite.
It’s truly amazing to see the variety of species so deep beneath the ocean’s surface; although the conditions are very harsh, life can still thrive. the same structures(volcanoes, faults, trenches) that can bring great harm to us is a home for them. The ocean is a world of itself.
On a less enthusiastic note, I don’t think we (Grenadians) are aware of the magnitude of the catastrophe Kick ’em Jenny WILL cause When, not IF it erupts. The mere fact that Dr. Ballard and his team are concerned about the impact it will have on North America, thousands of miles away should give us a vivid idea. Although there’s not much we can do since volcanoes are highly unpredictable we still have to be prepared.
