what is the value in transparency when you’re speaking to an audience that doesn’t uniformly abide by that same standard?
I see your point. I’m not necessarily advocating throwing discretion to the wind and spilling your heart out every chance you get…
but for example, if you fall thru Nah on the right day, during the right (morning) hour, with the right collection of commenters present…transparency tales can be constructive, for all parties.
true, it’s the world wide web where weirdos run rampant and nothing is sacred, but in lieu of all that, there is a certain standard on these boards…common threads among all (most) commenters that allow them to build with one another. getting feedback from others with differing perspectives can prove to be enlightening as well.
one common fact that is universal and indisputable amongst all commenters who’ve graced these boards, is that that we’ve all taken our fair share of L’s. and ain’t no shame in that. all said L’s mean is that you’ve got a story to tell, you’ve mastered (or are en route to mastering) that chamber, and you can re-hash past events with a healthy attitude of progression.
quiet as kept it’s actually more pathetic to give the appearance of faultlessness to a room full of anonymous screen names…wreaks of overcompensation.
in short, all I’m saying is there’s a place for transparency. it has it’s place.
The Pusha-T video should have been darker, actually the song itself should have had a more ominous voice. Lyrics and imagery on the song are nice. Voice doesn’t make me comfortable…have a hard time listening to dude who sounds like this. Not much Push can do about that..but.
