Now I don't know if you know this or not, but the United States Marine Corps has an actual division dedicated to subverting content seen on the internet. Yeah. No word of a lie. My good mate Rob Black told me this useful piece of information only the other day, whilst penetrating a cabbage with a ten foot hippo. Allegedly.
I became obsessed with a sport played by people who all possessed "Super-speed," and realized the DC Comics Character -- 'The Flash' -- was the only character that could service the role, and rebooted the origin story and wrote a spec script.
Hunter S. Thompson who, coined the phrase with his works, 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas', "Gonzo" meaning exaggerated view and self insertion in your own stories.
I noticed a few things. For starters, each of the first four tracks have a marching tempo. Seriously, try it. Unlike hip hop of today, of lets say Lil Wayne (I'm a big fan of his) NWA allowed me to formulate this twisted world; by closing my eyes and seeing Marines marching to the rhythm of songs that were, in fact, desperate pleas of four young black men to the American public.
"When something happens in South Central Los Angles, nothing happens. It's just another nigger dead"
That's a quote from Ice Cube off the extended version of the title track. When I was a kid I saw Eazy with a pistol on the album cover and thought 'That's pretentious'. But when I came back from the war I saw a Paramilitary Operations Team. Dre, Ren, Yella, Ice Cube and Eazy were 5 young black men, thrust into a war they didn't sign up for.
Lastly, Eazy would say...
'I don't smoke crack or run with gangs. I just sleep with ladies and be Eazy'
When I did my research I learned that he died from AIDS. A sexually transmitted disease. I cried. I cried every time he says in the song 'Gangsta Gansta': "I'm talking to you [women]/ We want to fuck you eazy! [Eazy] I want to fuck you too!". He died from having to much free love. He's been with me ever since; my mental cellmate in my own mind.
6) Taking into consideration your previous answer, what would you say you've learnt the most from being a writer? People are morons. They don't know with good entertainment a little effort goes a long way. Instead, they scan anything with more than three words and no 'lolcats' looking for continuity errors or grammatical mistakes. However, it's worth it when you find just one person who gets it.
7) If your had a motto, what do you think it would be? 'Never Taken Alive', is a terrible motto in the context of an actual armed conflict. However, it's catchy and I'm sticking to it. Never Taken Alive dot com!
