From The Desk Of Dr. Shapiro: "All Access"
Every show I attend I get handed an "all access" pass. It is a way for the club or venue to identify who is who. I know people who live for these passes. It is a way of validating their "status" in their mind. Take away that "all access" pass however, they are just another face in the crowd. I just watched an interview with my boy @trinidadjamesgg where you saw one of the most honest interviews I have ever seen. Here is a dude who couldn't give a shit about an "all access" pass because he has embraced his individuality. He doesn't look for people's validation, and at the end of the day, he did "him" on his own and as a result he isn't just another face in the crowd. Life is NOT a concert, NOR is it a popularity contest. If you are waiting for someone to tell you that you are "all access" you are sadly waiting for the wrong thing. Life isn't about being accepted by the masses, it is about accepting yourself. The greatest form of validation is happiness and inner peace. There is nothing some laminate paper could provide you that would even compare to the above. It's #friday and we are releasing another fucking type of #morninginspiration in the form of a video. Who knows if the world will like it, and frankly, who cares! The people involved are comfortable enough to be doing "them" and as a result, we have put out what we consider our art. The only person any of us seek to please is ourselves. The purity of our intentions and individuality will do all the rest. If you are waiting for a "laminate" to feel you have accomplished something in life, head IMMEDIATELY back to the drawing board! Hell, to be honest, you can have mine. Life isnt about being validated, its about individuality! You are holding up us all, and are missing the point. #morninginspiration #vintageframes
