Holy Grail...!?!

Well If you don’t know what the title means then you should just stop reading here… No this is not about Jay-z’s Track titled Holy Grail…

No this is not about The Patta x Parra Burgundy AM1’s which I class as my Holy Grails…
(This is a sneakerhead reference if you aren’t sure please google or feel free to contact me to be schooled)

I titled it Holy Grail because i’m going to educate you peasants about The Knights of The Round, and King Arthur… Haha not really you don’t need a religious history lesson based on something which is a myth… What I wanted to talk about is the Oath the knights swore.

The Code of Chivalry.

The Knight's Code of Chivalry was a moral system that stated all knights should protect others who can not protect themselves, such as widows, children, and elders. All knights needed to have the strength and skills to fight wars in the Middle Ages; they not only had to be strong but they were also extremely disciplined and were expected to use their power to protect the weak and defenseless.

Well, the code of Chivalry was actually what defined Knights and allowed them to maintain their knighthood.

Let me give you an interpretation by Sir Thomas Malory who wrote a book based on King Arthur:

  • To never do outrage nor murder (not to fight or murder anybody)
  • Always to flee treason (not to commit treason, a crime where you go against your country or king)
  • To by no means be cruel but to give mercy unto him who asks for mercy (To be fair to people, and not be cruel)
  • To always do ladies, gentlewomen and widows succor ('succor' is an old word for help; this means that the knight must promise to help women if they need it)
  • To never force ladies, gentlewomen or widows (to never do any harm to women)
  • Not to take up battles in wrongful quarrels for love or worldly goods (not to start a pointless fight)
(Typing this up made me think of the dog in Game of Thrones… Took a BIG BREAK to re-watch it haha)

I see this as the basic form of Chivalry…and it’s been adapted in the 21st Century as the Gentleman’s Code.

I mean it’s a very very simple way of life… I myself follow these rules or code of conduct because I believe it should be followed without any thought. It’s how a man should act at all times. To me it’s very basic skills of living within a community. Simple shit like holding a door open for a lady or even a man. Come on WHAT DOES IT ACTUALLY COST YOU… Thats how most people think now a days… Everyone thinks about themselves and thats it…

I can list many things a man should do for a woman, or how a man should act but I don’t think I need to school any of you… If you need to be reminded of these simple life skills then please have a go at your parents/guardians you was not raised properly…. If you don’t want to pass the blame to them then, blame society because living by such a Gentlemans Code is now seen as ‘Thirsty’... No I don’t want to get into your pants… No I’m not trying to make a pass on you because every guy that approaches you has only their interests in mind… (Do you know what this last line might be true and hell the previous line must be true… but please do not generalise for the whole male race. Some of us have mothers, daughters and sisters. We expect many people to be able to have a general understanding of how women should be treated)

I do this shit not for the satisfaction… Or for any recognition… I do it because I believe it’s morally correct… It’s the same as waking up and brushing your teeth, saying please and thank you. Just think about how a house is built, how a plant grows. Without the foundations in proper order what use is the rest of the house, or how can a plant grow without it’s roots. Next time you’ve got the opportunity to open a door for someone, (make sure the person you're opening a door for doesn’t have to take more than 5 Steps..)[I think this is widely accepted if you don’t hold it open if she has to do a slight sprint, specially in heels]

I’m sorry about this blog… I’m not here to boost my Ego and say I’m perfect and I abide by these rules at all time… But I just want people to recognise there are still people out there who believe in Chivalry and not all of them are out to get you haha…

Well I’ll have to drop another Jay-z reference here…

Onto the next one…..

(This blog actually ties well with the next one)

Ain’t Nobody Fucking With My Clique.... ?!
Slightly Late... I KNOW...!!
Haha Nah this blog is inspired by this...

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you would have seen this image ages ago... if you’re a hypebeast you would have seen it ages ago... If you’re a South Park fan you would have seen this image..

That’s a brief history lesson for you hypebeasts/Non-hypebeasts/People who don’t give a shit about fashion or Kanye west...
This can be all narrowed down to this quote...
“Birds of A feather Flock Together!”

Well if you don’t know what that means please stop reading...

Have you ever noticed how a single person can influence a/your social circle. I’ve given Kanye West as an example, it’s an extreme example because he influences all the hypebeast/hipsters... (I dare you to categorize me in that..)
Anyways take a look at your own social circle, your group of friends... 99.9999% chance the power of fashion has influence amongst you guys/gals..

Don’t wear the same shit like it’s a fucking Uniform... That shit is just ridiculous... I understand the influence fashion has on kids now a days. Don’t let the media suck you in..
I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.!”

I’m not going to reference where that is from... as you need to gather knowledge on your own.
Anyways I believe this limited edition business has got out of hand!  Everyone wants to have the rarest hardest to get clothing and kicks,  but then within your 'clique' they will have the same shoe or item.  Was it really that hard to get hold of?!  Clothing brands releasing friends and family only shit,  that people will wear like a uniform.  It's a shame we've all lost our individuality, and when people start something different it's criticised.
I mean fashion will always be around since we need to be clothed, but don't let it control you. My argument might be to not dress like your friends or social Circles but that's what puts you within them groups,  and that's how trends are started a group starts it off and other people see it and adapt to it.  
Well do you dress the way you do to fit into your social circle, or isit because of the way you dress that you’re in that social circle... This argument only you will know..!!

Time. A Man Made Concept ?!?!.......

Ask yourself this What is time?! It’s something on your phone, on your watch or on your wall. It’s a man made concept... If you break it down... Growing & Aging is what the powers above have given us, time is what man has created to measure this process...

Time was created to allow you to grasp the past in memory, the present by attention, and the future by expectation. Imagine there was no concept of time, by having time you’ve been limited in what you as a human must do. You have certain time slots for certain things...

This Timepiece basically shows how we are humans have been caged by this concept that someone unintentionally created to ease the simple Mind us humans have. They say we use about 10% of our brain.. (I know you kids now a days will actually think about Limitless when you read that)... The older more mature audience will think about Illuminati if you’ve gather enough knowledge on the brotherhood of freemasonry. Thats another blog post...

This is a picture of the current watch I own.. I’m not bound by space and time... I’ve freed myself from this concept and so should you. I’m only limited to what I need as a human being to survive.. time was created for me to give you this in measurements so your simple mind can comprehend it.
Think about this, the appearance of time is a trick of the memory. If asked to think about the past, and the future it’s nothing but memory, or expectations or predictions. What you would call it’s all in your head.

I didn’t realise talking about Time would bring in so many other points of views and discussions... As you can see i’m not really bothered to jump into all these... I could give you an e book on my opinions, but i’m going to leave it at this because i’ve not got the ‘Time’ for this.... Haha...

I’m going to leave you with a final note....

“A reminder that you can never spend too much time on the things you're passionate about & that's something that applies to everyone.”

Levi Maestro

Before wrapping this up I read a little piece and it had to be shared, i’m going to share it exactly the way it was printed because it was printed like that for a reason...

1.If the present and the future
Depend on the past,
Then the present and the future
Would have existed in the past.

2. If the present and the future
Did not exist there,
How could the present and the future
Be dependent upon it?

3. If they are not dependent upon the past,
Neither of the two would be established.
Therefore neither the present
Nor the future would exist.

4. By the same method,
The other two divisions-past and future,
Upper, lower, middle, etc.,
Unity, etc., should be understood.

5. A nonstatic time is not grasped.
Nothing one could grasp as
Stationary time exists.
If time is not grasped, how is it known?

6. If time depends on an entity,
Then without an entity how could time exist?
There is no existent entity,

So how can time exist?

It's All In The Detail...!?!

I would like to take this time and opportunity to thank all my close friends and family who were there to celebrate my Birthday this year... I cut too many cakes and was surprised way too many times.... If you know me you know I hate surprises... and that leads me to this blog post... It’s all in the detail...

Usually I can work these things out because I like to process everything. Everything I see and hear I will take it on board... and ask myself WHY?!?

Just Remember.. EVERYTHING has a meaning... Someone that twitches their nose, the way someone looks at an Item... Every Action Has A Motive... Or a meaning.  It depends on how you look at these things!  Isit a positive way or negative way?  

Enough about this bullshit haha you don't need to learn to read into all this because at the end of the day it will just cause problems for yourself,  you will look into it much deeper than you need to.  

Paying attention to detail is a trait that not a lot of people have!  This can be in everything around you,  from a stain on someone's top to the pattern of the pocket square tucked in that blazer pocket.  The smaller details imo have the bigger impacts!  These are the things people put thought and effort into achieving it could be a simple smile to just an extra stitching on your shoe.  It was put there for a reason, sometimes it has a meaning and a function. Sometimes it’s there because it’s aesthetically pleasing.

The point of this blog was just to share the fact people are always too concerned with the bigger picture and never sit down and enjoy the finer things in life. Notice the smaller things the powers above have put infront of you.

I’m just going to leave it at that and recommend you pick up a book Called The Alchemist. By Paulo Coelho...

I’ve set you home work... Because learning never stops..

If you got the title then you would know what this blog post is about... E3 hasn’t even been wrapped up yet and you all know i’m a Nintendo Fan... Always have been always will be and there is a reason for that..!!

The Title I know is from Metal Gear Solid... Yes you new age players will be like thats not a Nintendo game etc etc etc... Do your research... MGS has come out on nearly all consoles... But what I really want to mention is Super Smash Bro’s Universe.. DO you know what you don’t come onto my blog to read about shit you can find elsewhere. Facts and figures, videos and reviews what ever you want to know you can just google that shit....
As for my opinion I will only mention the best games and that may not even be the ones ur interested in... Anyways lets kill of this paragraph...

So why did I pick that title... usually they will basically sum up the whole blog post... this one is about my Snakey ‘Brother’... You may or may not know who this person is but I treated him like a brother..
I’ve know him for a very long time and we’ve been through alot together and individually.. We’ve grown up watching [back stabbing in his case] each others backs... For those of you who do not know me personally... Yes i’m an absolute dick, someone you want to punch in the face.. but let me be honest with you here i’m actually that go to guy...

Of course people have different opinions about each other, sometimes it’s cruel and it’s something they are born with... Sometimes it’s just the way they have treated you... And other times it’s the way that person acts in general...

Yes, I am that guy who likes to and tries to please everyone and every third party involved indirectly... 1 because I believe I have a reputation to keep and I would like to keep my reputation intact... I grew up with the worst of Reps... so once i moved away from that academic and school environment I built a solid foundation. Where I’ve tried to layer into a mansion of knowledge and information.... 2 because helping others and being ‘nice’ is just manners... In this day and age what has the true gentleman become ?!?!

The other day I offered to help a lady, and she just told me to fuck off because she wasn’t interested ?! Excuse me..!?! I’m not trying to move you stupid bitch... I just wanted to do a duty as a gentleman and help you out... I’m sorry just because I speak to you doesn’t mean I want something... Thats what society has taught us every move needs to have a motive and usually that motive is negative... Stop being so selfish... I offered a helping hand because it wouldn’t have made any difference in my life... but i might have shaved off a few minutes of your life...

Anyways talking about making moves with motives... Please think about how you treat your friends... Don’t suddenly out of the blue call me because you want a problem solved... 90% of the time I will probably say Yes, because i’m that YES man... but at least give a shit about the rest of my life before you drag me into ur life... Some people just need to stop and think, It’s not always about you..
