Kanye West Prior Apology to Taylor Swift on Twitter

buy Viagra 25 mg in Sacramento California Kanye may need a reminder of what it means to have humility, even if it’s from himself. Here is the actual transcript taken directly from recherche emploi femme de mГ©nage lille Twitter in 2010. The first tweet shown (10:37 AM, Saturday, September 4, 2010) is the last tweet in this stream below. The tweets that follow are in sequence going backward, starting from the bottom and reading up. The entire stream of feeble tweets was about two hours long:

check out this site “I’m sorry Taylor. 

It starts with this…

I want to win there hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.

I want to help starting with the music and ending with the smile.

I wish they could accept that I’ve grown and only want to do good for the world. I want to help as many people as I can.

I wish they all knew how much I really cared about music and pop culture and art and peoples feelings.

I wish I could talk to every hater face to face and change there a opinion of me one conversation at a time.

I’ve hurt, I’ve bled, I’ve learned. I only want to do good. I am passionate I am human I am real. I wish I could meet every hater

When I right songs like Heartless I always say “is this melody good enough to be a country song or a broadway song?”

TAYLOR LOVES RAP MUSIC… I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC

Why was it made into such a race issue. Taylor loves rap music… I love country music.

There’s a layer of… Entertainment… we are entertainers and this is only TV… not the War

There’s a layer of… hey Kanye said what I was thinking .   A year later where do we stand?

WHO BENEFITED FOR REAL PEOPLE???!!!!!!!!

Walk with me people… let’s break this down for real now. I might get in trouble again lol?

MTV? JAY LENO? BEYONCE? ALL FORMS OF MEDIA? TAYLOR? KANYE WEST? Who gained? Who lost?

You’ve got the Media play… Who benefitted off of the moment?

You’ve got a layer of… What is reality? You really want this guy to die over an award show???!! wooooooow …..

You’ve got a layer of order… this is how things are spose to go this is how it’s always been etc.

You’ve got a layer of order… this is how things are spose to go this is how it’s always been etc.

If I speak in 3rd person it’s because I’m quoting people sometimes I forget to put the quotations you know my grammar.. #ITSAPROCESS

You’ve got the top layer… Kanye’s rude!

Why are there so many tweets? Well this isn’t a simple subject. There are layers to this beyond me running on stage.

Humanity and Empathy are 2 of the 4 principles at facebook. Those were the 2 principles I was missing on that evening

These tweets have no manager, no publicist , no grammar checking… this is raw

It feels like the movie Heat when you wanted Deniro to make it… You want the bad guy to make it.

These aren’t regular tweets… this is stream of consciousness … I want you guys to know and feel where my head is at…

Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.

I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help.

When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE … I take the responsibility for my actions

Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.

It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What’s the point of dressing tastefully if I’m going to act the complete opposite?

With new found humility … who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down.

The Wicked witch of the west basically is so convicted to tell her’ truth when she does it she is outcasted by society and turned WICKED

Who’s seen the play Wicked? I’ve seen it 4 times! Other than loving the music acting and costumes… it’s my story!!!

I have given my awards to other groups multiple times on national TV… They never showed that this past year during the massacre of Kanye

It’s not about race America. No one in our position ever stands up and says anything anymore.

I would have ran on stage for Justin that night because Sexy Back (in my mind) was that important… that impactful to our culture

I watched Justin Timberlake at the Grammies loose every televised award including album of the year which the Dixie Chicks won

I am responsible for those who love and represent me and what they have to deal with on a day to day defending “The American Psycho”

There are people who have named there kids after me… can you imagine that next day in school. Even though I don’t have kids…

I know there are family members friends and fans that have literally fought for me.

I’m ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone… it’s like hoodies

We’re both artist and the media and managers are trying to get between us. Everyone wants to capitalize off this is some way

She deserves the apology more than anyone. Thank you Biz Stone and Evan Williams for creating a platform where we can communicate directly

She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She’s justa lil girl with dreams like the rest of us.

I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that’s so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won’t take it then I’ll perform it for her
Reply Retweet .   I wear my scars… It’s almost like I have to where a suit to juxtapose my image and I won’t lie… IT WORKS!

People tweeted that they wish I was dead… No listen. They wanted me to die people. I carry that. I smile and take pictures through that

I’m the guy who at one point could perform the Justin Timberlake on stage and everyone would be sooo happy that I was there

…taking a 15 second blip the mdeia have successfully painted the image of the “ANGRY BLACK MAN’ The King Kong theory.

The media has successfully diminished the “receptive” audience of (3rd person)… KANYE WEST

I have a mission in life to bring truth and beauty through my music and the visuals that anchor around it

Some people say… Why worry about “the haters?” This is bigger that just the concept of haters.

If you google Asshole my face may very well pop up 2 pages into the search.

That’s when you realize perception is reality. I’ve been straying from this subject on twitter but I have to give it to you guys raw now.

I was chilling with this white girl having a conversation and she cut me off and said… Hold up… I thought you didn’t like us?!

There are people who don’t dislike me… they absolutely hate me!

Remember in Anchor Man when Ron Burgandy cursed on air and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn’t a joke. This was & is my real life

People booed when I would go to concerts and the performer mentioned my name.

Had to let employees go… for the first time I felt the impact of my brash actions … I felt the recession from an ownership side

How deep is the scar… I bled hard.. cancelled tour with the number one pop star in the world … closed the doors of my clothing office

With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing … I became George Bush over night

Even though the NBC telethon was widely praised yall didn’t think they was just gone let me get away with that did yall???!!!

Some people’s truth is Kanye is racist… It’s not my truth but I do believe it’s my Karma…. walk with me…

When I say perception is reality I mean whatever you think is the truth… is your truth

I accept the idea (ideal) that perception is reality

Happy B day to sister B … I gotta dope ass gift for you.

Even now a lot of articles start there first 2 paragraphs about how much of an asshole I am

I feel like they were waiting for the opportunity to go in all the way on me and when it came they beat me to a pulp

They wanted yall to believe I was a monster in real life so you guys wouldn’t listen or buy my music anymore

Man I love Twitter… I’ve always been at the mercy of the press but no more… The media tried to demonize me…”

Some things never change. A leopard doesn’t change its spots. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. So much for apologies.

Robert Reoch Writes “Mind Pastry”

Robert Reoch is Mind Pastry

Robert Reoch Bakes

Robert Reoch measures, beats, and sometimes whips ideas to death. Welcome to “Mind Pastry,” a bakery of thoughts from my mind to yours. 

Robert Reoch is the Name

My last name, Reoch, is pronounced, Rē’ŏck (rhymes with Reebok). That  image of a piece of cake floating among the palm trees in my page banner is a slice from a red velvet cake that I actually baked! Robert Reoch's Mind Pastry CakeThere’s more to Mind Pastry than just the analogy, though. I actually love pastry—and I bake it too!—but that’s another post.

Mind Pastry is Layered

I offer a dose of conscience to the Internet through many of my posts. I believe we have too many “reality TV” shows and deceptive news outlets in the media. Too often, issues are discussed from just one point of view in the news. Many pop “journalists” aren’t doing their homework. They aren’t getting out to the field to research their stories. Much of current reporting relies solely on popular social memes—mass hysteria, as I see it—rather than on verified facts and nuanced examination of the gray areas. Please, people, stop thinking only in black and white. Look for what’s in-between. Ask what is the back story you’re not getting from the media. I try to present layers and perspectives that encourage people to discover full truths. I live by three principles: Love, Truth, and Knowledge. I resent journalism that ignores these values in favor of ratings and profit. I hope you find something new and thought-provoking in Mind Pastry.

Robert Reoch Writes

I’ve written a couple of books of short stories under pen name, Robert George Reoch. I wrote my Travelers’ Shorts books with the traveler in mind, even though my stories not about travel. The idea was to provide short stories for the traveler who didn’t want to start a heavy novel. Short stories provide entertainment in manageable chunks for the person on the go. My short stories are written with taste and richness (just like pastry). These epic tales offer drama, adventure, and laugh-out-loud humor. You can order them here:

Michael Dunn a Victim of Audio Terrorism?

Michael Dunn a Victim of Audio Terrorism?

Did “Audio Terrorism” Cause Michael Dunn to Snap?

Yes,audio terrorism is a thing. In Tampa, Florida and in other communities, they want to make it illegal. Audio terrorism describes the impact on the public when excessively loud music emanates from a passenger vehicle using a highly amplified sound system. Some of the immediate effects on the surrounds are the obvious noise, as well as rattling of windows and mirrors in other drivers’ vehicles. Coupled with safety concerns are health risks. In addition to having their windows and mirrors rattled, those exposed to extraordinarily high decibels experience raised blood pressure and a temporary rush of adrenaline. Hearing is also impaired. These symptoms were claimed to have been experienced by Michael Dunn when he was confronted with a vehicle occupied by four teenagers whose blasting music had Dunn feeling a sense of being under attack. This is how it gets to be known as audio terrorism.

Unfortunately, Dunn’s request to the teenagers to turn down the music, and the response that followed, resulted in a confrontation and the death of Jordan Davis, who was one of the occupants of the vehicle emitting loud music. Some would say that Dunn should simply have moved his vehicle away from the noise. Others believe the public has a right to airwaves free of excessively loud music that causes physical and mental harm to those nearby. Few have been willing to discuss the actual physical and mental impact that occurs in the presence of sudden exposure to extreme sound decibel levels from a nearby vehicle. Instead, most people focus on the resulting confrontation and tragic death of Jordan Davis. It takes a more analytical mind to dissect the full of the situation. In a civilized society, we still need to define what civil behavior is. As technology and access to it create new areas where sensitivity is needed, we must continually redefine what is acceptable public behavior. This ongoing process is often neglected.

In the case of Jordan Davis’ having been shot, CNN television personalities Don Lemon and Sunny Hostin have cried for weeks that Michael Dunn pulled out his gun entirely out of dislike of loud music, and because of race (the teens were black). It seems it’s always about race with Sunny Hostin unless the perpetrator is black, in which case she has nothing to say. Don Lemon endlessly oversimplifies this case, on national television, to the insult of millions with an ounce of intelligence. CNN had hung Michael Dunn out to dry long before there was a trial. They had invested a lot in his guilt. This narrow focus is exactly what perpetuates animosity and bigotry in this country. It’s certainly not fair and balanced.

Another crucial reason for cracking down on “audio terrorism” in Florida is the threat it poses to public safety. If a vehicle’s driver blasts music at 125 decibels while an emergency vehicle is attempting to pass, neither that driver nor other drivers in the vicinity can hear clearly the siren of the emergency vehicle. The drowning sounds from an amplified audio system present a serious safety hazard for all concerned. Keep in mind; these factors impact the driver and passengers in his vehicle with far greater impact and impairment as well.

The Michael Dunn case is more complex than just loud music. Allegations exist of threats beyond the music, which led to gunfire. These factors are still being worked out in the courts. Michael Dunn was recently convicted of attempted manslaughter for shooting at the vehicle occupied by the teenagers. The goal of the anti audio terrorist measures is to expand existing laws pertaining to excessive noise and disturbing the peace. As a society, it seems we’ve reached an unfortunate point of actually needing to enforce being civil to one another, even when it comes to how loudly we play our music while in proximity to others. To me, it’s just common sense. I was taught to respect the space of others while out in public. Playgrounds are for children to scream and holler to their hearts’ content. The public streets should not be an adult battleground for the right to hear oneself think.

In Florida, they aim to quash audio terrorism. Any stereo that can be heard 50 feet, or more, from a vehicle has now been outlawed in Pinellas County and in Sarasota where fines can be imposed. A new Tampa ordinance was preliminarily passed in March 2013. Under the draft, first-time violators would get a $250 ticket, $400 for a second offense. The third offense could mean a $500 fine and/or 60 days in jail. The city council voted 6-1 in favor. The ordinance is  welcomed by fed-up citizens who say it’s been long overdue.

Yes, audio terrorism is a thing. It’s deadly serious too.

CNN Ignores Full Facts Including Audio Terrorism in Favor of Playing Race Card

Of course, a few pawns at CNN inject robust decibel levels of racism as being the main issue in the Michael Dunn case, while ignoring the full picture. Sunny Hostin and Don Lemon are always on the same sad note about “white privilege” versus black profiling rather than using complex reasoning. Jeffrey Toobin (another CNN sounding board) echoes Hostin and Lemon, backing their bigotry with ardent sincerity to boost ratings. On a recent panel show on CNN, in speaking of the Michael Dunn case, Jeffrey Toobin said, “This was a case about a kid killed because he was black.” This was quickly followed by Sunny Hostin chiming in, “Well said!” Those are direct quotes. How do you simplify it down to race so readily? Ratings.

So, that’s all CNN gets from this? I’ve never seen so-called journalists project such narrow views. They seem incapable of examining complex layers. Don Lemon is practically giddy with sophomoric angst about the plight of the victimized black man. Wake up and smell the coffee, Don. The Civil Rights Movement was actually a thing too. Affirmative Action has come and gone with decades spent deferring white persons’ “privileges” in preference of conferring favor to minorities, regardless of abilities. There’s still more work to do in the scheme of things. What did we get for all of those sacrifices? We’ve lost a lot of traction in education and productivity in this nation, but we have the first black president in history. Now, please recognize that this wailing and flailing arms about race does nothing but perpetuate a climate of racism. It has to stop. Younger folks won’t recall this, but during the 70s and 80s there actually was a period when racial harmony was coming together and this nation was less divided than it is right now.

How about a little balance, CNN? A good audio technician knows how to adjust the balance and tweak the equalizer. A true audiophile knows that playing music too loudly only distorts and ruins it. Shouting racism at every turn results in the same undesirable distortion and loss of harmony. It’s time to grow up and help fix the problems within our communities, not continuously cry racism while missing the rest of the notes. Try changing your tune and being part of the solution.

Television Journalists Need to Set an Excellent Example

We need a better example from the journalists at CNN. This recent shooting case was not just about loud music. Firing a gun while in an agitated state is just one layer of the Michael Dunn, Jordan Davis story. (Is this another strong argument for gun control?) Did you talk about that between rants of racism? The affects of music so loud that everyone’s blood pressure goes up is another aspect. Did you look at it from that perspective? Applying the law objectively is another facet. It’s not just about race. It’s about a jury and a fair trial. Try using more complex reasoning for a change, Sunny Hostin and Jeffrey Toobin. Don’t just dismiss this as being a case solely about race. That’s just irresponsible, at best. Stop acting so naive, Don Lemon. Consider the effects on everyone involved when it comes to excessively loud music (the phenomenon also known as audio terrorism). Who cares if it was rap? Nobody fires a gun just because they don’t like the choice of music. Just because Michael Dunn mentioned rap and thugs, do you make that the entire case? What was the behavior of all of those involved? I found it interesting that the problem of audio terrorism has been an ongoing problem in Florida for a while. It’s real. I’m not saying it was the root of this case, but I’m not dismissing anything, unlike CNN.

Echoes of George Zimmerman Case

Finally, if and when Michael Dunn is tried a second time for the murder of Jordan Davis, I would suggest that the jury be given the benefit of a full re-enactment of the crime with as much realism as is possible based on the evidence and descriptions from actual witnesses. I would like to see a re-creation using the same decibel levels of sound, and the same music that was playing at the time of the incident. I suggest the jurors experience the sound levels both from the inside the teens’ vehicle, as well as the sound levels and vibrations felt from inside Michael Dunn’s vehicle. If this demonstration is permitted (considering some jurors may not want to subject their ears to possible damage), the jurors who participate will get a clearer sense of how the entire situation evolved and the true impact of the “loud music” and the role it played in the confrontation. If anything, this could be a valuable lesson going forward. I predict, however, that the State of Florida may have not learned how to choose their battles. This could well go the way of the George Zimmerman case.

Davy Jones Goodbye

Thank you Davy Jones

Davy Jones Dies

Davy Jones passed away at his home in Florida on February 29, 2012 (reportedly from a heart attack).

When I was growing up, the Monkees were huge and Davy Jones was a standout. His British accented voice was distinctly his own whether in speaking, or singing. Jones also possessed a rare wholesomeness that never wavered throughout his career.

Many people share worshiping rights to Davy Jones. He belonged to the millions who were made joyful by his personality and singing. When Davy Jones sang with The Monkees, everyone sang along. Nobody could resist singing while knowing all the words to, “Daydream Believer.” Davy had a knack for comedy too, which contributed greatly to the success of The Monkees TV series.

I recall attending a Monkees in concert (reunion tour) at the San Diego County Fair in the mid ’80s. Oingo Boingo was playing there too. I was into Oingo Boingo at the time, but was still surprisingly thrilled to see The Monkees. It was surreal to be near them, live, for the first time, even so many years after their 1960s popularity.

If you click on the Daydream Believer link above, you’ll hear Davy sing his most popular song. It all comes back if you’re from that era—guaranteed to make you nostalgic and a little sad.

My condolences to friends and family of Davy.

Goodbye Davy Jones. You will long be remembered with great affection. Thanks again.
