Andre Romelle Young, better known as Dr. Dre, has dropped his new album “Compton”. The release came like a thief in the night, with minimal promotion and fanfare, just before the movie “Straight Outta Compton” hits theaters.
At one point amidst our daily usage of cell phones and modern technology, it seemed to me that some folks were just getting out of hand. It inspired me to do this cheesy short film, I hope you like it.
There’s a gross misinterpretation continually growing that texting is talking… IT’S NOT!!! What it is, is a method for millions of people not to talk, often because they don’t want a human exchange. It’s a means of expression that can’t be immediately challenged, disputed or debated. It’s a way of communication that many use because they think they’re slick, when in reality THOSE people are socially inept or illiterate. You ain’t foolin’ nobody.
The FUNKIEST moment is being there, in the moment, not recording it. I watched Oprah Winfrey’s address to Harvard University online last night. One being able to have the opportunity to hear a person of her caliber, success and expertise in a private setting speak, is rare. When moments like this occur, you should really be in tune and focused, not recording it.
