Imagine faces on the inside... You can do it!

When I magine what social media would look like, it’s like this:

Imagine a big sphere of faces all looking inwards at each other.

When someone posts something, they float awkwardly towards the Continue reading

What Does Your Whiteboard Say?

^ Note the whiteboard ^

When I used to work in Newtown & catch the train out from Parramatta to work each day, on the way through the back streets of Newtown, I noticed out the front of one particularly dirty looking town-house a ratty looking whiteboard with an interesting quotation on it. “Cool quote” I thought. The next day a different quote was on it & I was hooked. Each day I would go out of my way to pass by that house. I never met or saw it’s inhabitants but it was so refreshing to absorb a piece of wisdom/humour each day.

The point I am trying to get across to you guys is about the profound & far reaching effects our words, actions, thoughts & (initially) feelings have on the world around us. You may just be one person but no matter how little difference you feel you do or can make, EVERYTHING you do, say, think & feel DOES MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

Pay someone at work a quick compliment about how they look, *BOOM*, you may very well have boosted their mood exponentially. OR, Bitch at them about something minor because you are frustrated about something else & you just might irritate them enough that they end up bitching at someone else… & so on.

Laugh at that nerdy ‘loser’ kid at school when everyone else is & it just might be the last straw. He goes home & puts his head in the oven. OR, Tell him something that you genuinely admire about him (like his work ethic) & he just might pull through that tough day.

I’m sure you can think of a time when someone has made some minor act of kindness which has turned your day around completely… You can do it too.

I’ll try to be succinct here: As I have been planning to do for awhile now, I have a white-board that I take with me whenever I busk. Continue reading

The XYZ’s Of Me

OK, so my first post ‘The ABC’s Of Me’ didn’t actually include anything about me… So I created this page to tell you a bit about what I’m about!

That is all, see you soon :)

The ABC’s Of Me

Posted in Random with tags , , , , , , , on March 17, 2010 by stanmorephoenix

Hello Blog-readers,

Like the title? It’s the name of the song I wrote last night & it seemed an appropriate title for my maiden blog. The term ‘the abc’s of me’ I heard Kevin Smith use a few times in his podcast called smodcast which just so happens to be the best god-damn podcast around. Basically, it means “The basic info you need to know about me.” He seemed to like to use it in the context of telling a possible suitress that “These are the abc’s of me & if you don’t like it, fuck off.” Seemed like an interesting premise for a song (which ended up straying from the point just about as much as this blog is). At any rate, do yourself a favour and check Kevins podcast out. For those of you un-familiar with Kevin Smith, he is ‘Silent-Bob’ from ‘Mall-Rats’ & ‘Silent-Bob & Jay Strike Back’ among others. Besides that fact, he has written & directed many great films such as the two I just mentioned,  ‘Clerks’, ‘Dogma’ & Continue reading
