XO: Nouveau Parfum


This has nothing to do with new perfume.

However, if you haven’t done so already, you must take a look at this music video [it’s an actual music video]:

Now, first the song is absolutely beautiful. I don’t understand the language at all, but I am simply captivated by the song…it’s hard to put on a finger on exactly what it is. I’m going to say that it’s the crescendo of passion and volume, mixed with the piano in the background. It’s soothing, yet motivating.

Secondly and probably the most evident part would be the video itself. Now, this video actually took eight hours to shoot and five different wardrobe changes by Boggie [the singer]. The implication that software can perfect anything is evidently and most notably the conversation topic at hand. I know that I’m not popular with the topic, but after watching the video too many times I’ve come to the conclusion that my stance, while not opposed, does not necessarily go along the same line.

Transformation.

See, this is something that people who were of the ‘normal crowd’ of life have failed to understand for over twenty years now. The whole secret of technology isn’t about power, weapons, beauty, and every other vain topic within the world…for many, it’s the escape.

Side Note: I’ve got this video stuck on repeat for some reason…

Maybe it’s the idea of being able to escape, to turn off, turn around, and leave. Perhaps that’s why I’m obsessed not with sleeping, but with dreaming, because even though chaos ensues it can still be a drastic transformation from the world that I currently dwell in. My mind already manipulates the world around me, dreaming merely makes it that much closer to a reality.

Perhaps it’s an addiction? You know, everyone needs that smoke, or that last drink, maybe for me I just need that screen, the glow of the keyboard, the strumming of the keys, and the recognition that out here I can be whoever I want to be. I’ve even noticed that it’s created this subculture fear in me of meeting people one-on-one in real life; I’d rather be on a stage, or on the computer. If you’ve called me before you know that I’ll rarely answer…if I answer. I am the most social anti-social person you meet.

But when my fingers touch the plastic keys…life changes. Suddenly processors and brain computing run hand in hand, I play the game of how fast can the computer run, and can my fingers keep up with my brain. Many times, they cannot [I’ve learned via this site actually]. This is why it’s alright for me to have never been a stellar athlete, because technology, social media, the digital world…it’s all the great equalizer. It levels everything out, and shows anyone and everyone that those who know how to use their minds can run the advantage.

Does that make sense?

Think of it this way, in the past month my newest projects that I’ve thought up:
-A computer mouse that is integrated with your hand
-New mobile applications for soccer
-Digital video outsourcing from the computer to the live net

Why? Because I have a job that encourages that opportunity. I spend my day bouncing between screens, thinking that one day I’ll come up with the next Google Glass, the next iPod, the next…who knows? I’m not a technology genius, but it is a complete addiction to be able to blend innovation, imagination, and technology together.

That is a realm where chaos dwells.
I live in this mental complex, and frankly, I’m loving every moment of it.

Digitally, I love being transformed.
