Today, marks the first day in my life, where I will actually be dressing up for Halloween. Growing up, it was forbidden in my household because we were devout Christians and this day wasn’t one that we really acknowledge.
Tonight, I’ll be dressing as one of my favorite legends, Rick James. I’ve decided to don his attire as a symbol of recognition for his unwavering contributions to music, daring fashion style, and that fact that Rick James was unfuckwitable. He had a touch of confidence that would not relent, even under the scrupulous headlines and lack of true recognition that he deserved for his artistic contributions.
I’ve always gravitated toward the counter culturists, because deep down, I’m one. We don’t defy the standards set by society just for the sake of doing so, but from my perspective, we do it because we don’t feel liberated by following the crowd. The beat of our drum, just sounds too good to ignore.
Cheers to new memories, good friendships, and new experiences.
Be safe and enjoy your Halloween.
