2017 Resolutions


I say every year that resolutions are bullshit for many reasons, most important one being that most people don't keep up with them. Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is "doing something over and over again and expecting the same result." Yet, every year is the same shit. You'd think people would learn or move on to a new strategy, but it's like a kid putting a fork in the electrical socket over and over and never learning from their mistakes.

It's better to have a plan to reach your goal then have baby steps to get to it, then it seems easier and more achievable. If you're the kind of cat that likes to jump in with both feet, then know where your going and have a plan and a backup plan.

What's the biggest resolution every year? Wanting to lose weight and get in shape. That's great if that's truly what YOU want, but don't fall victim to what society, culture, friends and family tell what you need to do cause they can't except who you are, and most importantly you should truly except who YOU are. Reminds me of that quote from Hellboy, "My uncle, he used to say we like people for their qualities... ...but love them for their defects." Love yourself too and other people!

Trying to get back into the grove of things and looking back at my old work that I don't even remember making, but most times is still relevant. So here's one from two years ago about resolutions! Peace!

Sup 'rillas?!

Ya boy Joe here! People been wondering where I been and what I've been doing since I hung up my Vlog/Podcast hat. Been chillin mostly, readin, relaxin, watching movies, and a shit ton of Netflix. Life at the zoo is a lot more tame now and I am more at peace and not that angry cat people knew me to be when I first started doing videos.

 So, why did I give it all up?

 It has all been said before and I was just saying it all over and over and I felt that it was mainly falling on deaf ears. I am incredibly grateful for those that did listen and get what I was trying to do, and I hope that i influenced you and your lives to some degree. We live on a beautiful planet that could be even more beautiful if we all tried, but we are living in ugly times and my ray of hope seems to be getting dimmer as I see it get dimmer for others as well. A lot of people will say, "Fuck hope," but then what do you hold on to? What pushes you to strive, succeed, and keep going every day? Is that not hope or some fashion of it?

 Even in what seems like dark times now with the new prez coming around and the positive changes that did happen now seem to be threatened, more and more people seem to be coming together with a common goal and enemy. You humans seems to ignore your differences when you have someone or something that you can all get behind and hate together. It's fucked up, but it kind of works, even though no one should hate anything as it's a waste of time and energy. We could all use a system LIKE that where we can gather and unite over the things we love too! How many cats like ice cream, sex, pizza? Then yall my rillas! Let's stop looking at each other's differences as something to look down upon and instead rejoice in each others differences and learn from each other.

 Anyways, will be trying to get my old web domain and email back up so people can send emails to me again, and maybe do some more Q&A type stuff like I did with my web series on YouTube, but answer here on the blog instead. And remember, I'm not gone, just chillin, but always here for you mofos!
