Top 20 Songs of 2018

Yeah, I’m a little late. I know it’s almost February 2019 but I was looking through my music and couldn’t help but notice how many songs I absolutely loved in 2018. This will be a short little blog post, but I wanted to share this wonderful music with you all, it would be a shame if it were wasted and forgotten.

This list has some hip-hop, some indie, some rock, some jazz and even a little latin music. Take that leftists who say conservatives only listen to country! There’s not even a country song on here! I hope you enjoy this list, and feel free to tell me what songs you liked, which ones you didn’t, and which ones you would have included.

Cultural Appropriation: A Leftist Myth

Imagine this: You walk into the costume party wearing your sexy Pocahontas outfit hoping for a fun night with your friends when a 5’5 white male dressed as a gender-neutral Spider-person approaches you to tell you how “offensive” and “racist” your costume is. He tells you “you don’t understand the significance of what you’re wearing” and that you “should be ashamed for wearing that. Native Americans were slaughtered by white people like you!” You stand there awkwardly waiting for him to stop when suddenly, he pulls out his phone, takes a picture of you and tweets it to the rest of his “woke” followers. “I can’t believe it’s 2018 and people still think it’s okay to dress like this” the tweet reads. Suddenly, a mob of privileged college students are berating you for your costume, and you’ve been embarrassed to the point where you end up just leaving the party. As the group of NPC’s yells you out the door, you take one last look around at all the screaming people. Funny… not one Native American in sight.

We live in a culture and a society where outrage has become a recreational pastime.” said a Navajo Indian I interviewed on my trip to the reservation in Window Rock, Arizona. After being chased off of the California State University Northridge campus for dressing up as a Native American for Thanksgiving, (watch that video here: https://bit.ly/2CnwxcK), I decided to see if real Native Americans were as offended as the college students who I encountered on campus.

These alleged indigenous students were screaming death threats and ripping my costume off of me. One would have thought the world was going to instantaneously explode if I didn’t take off my Party City Indian headdress.

Having experienced this, I drove 900 miles with my cameraman to the Navajo Reservation to see what people there thought, and the results were exactly as I expected. Of the Navajos we talked to, not one was offended by “cultural appropriation”. Not one of them thought the name Washington Redskins was offensive, and not one of them wanted others to be offended (or to feign offense) on their behalf. The Navajos I talked to actually loved the idea of people sharing their culture and keeping their history alive. “I think that’s a cool thing that we get to be represented.” said Ryan, one of the Navajos we talked to. After my experience on the reservation, Ryan and I have kept in touch, and I even sent him the final video. Here’s what he had to say after I sent it to him:

“Thank you!!! The way the whole video was put together was our voice. Amazing, good work brother!” That hit me harder than any hateful leftist ever could.

(Video from the Navajo Reservation: https://bit.ly/2D8XNNB)

It seems to me that the only people getting offended over “cultural appropriation” are those who are least affected by it. What do I mean by this? I mean that educated white leftists are getting offended on behalf of minorities that aren’t even upset in the first place.

In another video, I went to UCLA and asked college students if they were offended by me dressing up as a Mexican. As you can probably guess, they were all horribly traumatized by the experience, but when I went to Olvera Street, a very hispanic area in Los Angeles, and asked the same question to Mexicans on the street, they loved my outfit and were enthralled that a white guy was celebrating their culture with them. (Watch Mexicans vs. Students: Cultural Appropriation here: https://bit.ly/2SUjbeM) Yet again, the people who the popular narrative insists are supposed to be offended reveling in the fact that someone is supposedly appropriating their culture.


Nowadays, people are going to college and coming out stupider than when they went in. To be offended by “cultural appropriation,” it would seem one needs to be college educated. People are not born offended, it’s something that has to be taught, and the university campus is exactly where it happens. Leftist professors teach their students how horrible America is, how terrible white people are, and above all else, that “MY CULTURE IS NOT YOUR DAMN PROM DRESS!” which is made even more laughable when you realize over 80% of all college professors are indeed white. (Source: https://bit.ly/RArcp6) Virtue signaling academics are teaching impressionable college students what to think instead of how to think, in turn creating an entire generation of young people who believe getting “triggered” is the norm, and who shame those who wish to celebrate another culture’s identity.

A great example is the Irish. I’m part Irish myself, and if you know your American history, you’ll know that the Irish have actually suffered as much discrimination and persecution as perhaps any other group – I’m not begging for your tears, it’s just a fact!

Yet, when I hear that someone is wearing a shamrock on my campus or celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day without being Irish themselves I don’t turn into a keyboard warrior, blasting their face on social media with the hashtag #culturevulture. Instead, I do what any rational person would do, I get over it. The leprechaun throughout history has been considered a derogatory term for the Irish, but do we care now when people use it for celebration? Of course not! We throw on our green and hit the pub with everyone else. It’s cultural appreciation, not appropriation.

Now I’m not saying there are no minorities who will get offended by your “culturally appropriating” costumes, but I can assure you that the vast majority of them could care less what you dress up as. They’re hard working people who just want a good job, a wonderful family and a happy life. They don’t need you getting angry on their behalf, and there’s bigger things to worry about than getting mad over a silly costume. Getting offended does no good for you and no good for anyone else. So for God’s sake, get off your high horse, put on a sombrero and enjoy the costume party. Or the costume fiesta, if you will.

 

My 50 Favorite Albums Of All Time

So I made my list of my Top 100 Favorite Songs Of All Time, it only felt right I did albums next. Albums are a lot different than songs because they need to be cohesive projects with a theme. One song doesn’t make an album great, and the whole thing has to come together to make an enjoyable experience for the listener.

The albums I’ve chosen are more than just a group of good songs to me. Each album I’ve chosen has transcended music for me, and has created a work of art that is fresh, insightful, colorful, impactful and beautiful to listen to.

I chose each album based on a few different factors. Album artwork, enjoyability of the songs, production style, theme and mood, song writing, cultural relevance, artist or bands honesty in their music, tying together of the album, storytelling, evolution of concepts and just overall my own personal preference.

So reader, enjoy this list and hopefully you can find some new favorite albums to listen to! I’m sure you’re going to disagree with a lot of my picks, so let me know in the comments what are your favorites! There is a Spotify link at the bottom of this list with all 50 albums in it for you to listen to as well. Enjoy!

New Years Resolutions You Can Actually Stick To

I guess it’s that time of year again! The time of year where we all promise to eat healthier, workout and drink less. Most of the time, these resolutions are practiced for the first few weeks of January before being dropped and forgotten about until next years New Year’s eve. But what about resolutions that aren’t forgotten? What sorts of things can we promise to ourselves that we can actually carry out? Here is a list of a few resolutions I think everyone can practice that will make your life better, and make you a happier person.

  1. Relationships with family and loved ones: Nobody is perfect, and I think we can all agree that we don’t always get along with the ones that we love. This resolution is to find out the things that will make your loved ones happier and try and be better for them. Asking your loved ones what they want is incredibly important, and most people don’t do it nearly enough. This year, ask these people in your life what they want and try and be better for them. If your significant other wants you to show more affirmations of love for them, try and tell them how much you care more than you do now. If your family wants you to do more around the house, clean your room and try and make their lives easier. And if your mom wants you to call her more while you’re away living in Hollywood, get on the phone once a week and tell her how you’re doing instead of just calling her when you need money! Haha that last one may be a little too close to home for me, but you won’t know what your loved ones want until you ask. We are in control of the relationships we have with people, and following up with loved ones to see what you can do better to make them happier is a huge step towards a more joyous and healthier life.
  2. Practice gratitude: Dennis Prager talks about this all the time, and this one may be the easiest one on the list. Being grateful will turn your life upside down if you’ve been feeling entitled up to this point. Take it as a mission in your life to say thank you more and be grateful to the people who have done things for you. Gestures of gratitude will not just let people around you know that they are appreciated, but will make you a happier person when you see how far a small “thank you” will go. People are more likely to do things for you when they feel appreciated, and you will see all of the relationships in your life improve. So this year, instead of expecting things from other people for nothing in return, take the time to be appreciative and  see your life improve.
  3. Fix the things you know to be wrong in your life: The thing I love about new years resolutions is that it totally goes against the left’s victim mentality. The left wants to tell people there are all these “barriers” preventing them from having a “fair” life. The left claims your intersectionality stops you from succeeding in life because you were born with all these disadvantages. As conservatives, we know this to be untrue. New years resolutions are a time for you to look at your life and say, “am I doing poorly in life because of the world around me, or can I do something myself to actually make my life better?” Think about the things in your life that you want to fix, and actually do something about it. As Jordan Peterson would say, “clean your room.” Stop blaming other people for your problems, and work on making your life better. Once you realize that you are in control of your own life and you start fixing your own problems, you will become a happier, less stressed and overall harder working person.

Those are just a few resolutions that I believe will significantly make your life better that you can actually follow and stay true to. There’s no guarantee that adhering to these resolutions will change your life overnight or make your life perfect, but without a doubt these three tips will make you a stronger, more tenacious and loving person. Good luck with 2019 everyone! I’d write more or stay and chat but I have to go cancel my membership to the gym I never go to. Happy New Years!
