Pink Floyd – Another Brick in the Wall

Lyrics ~

We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey, teachers, leave them kids alone
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave those kids alone
Hey teachers, leave those kids alone
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
“Wrong, do it again! Wrong, do it again!”
“If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding
How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”
“You, yes, you behind the bike sheds, stand still, laddy”

My two cents ~

Ok. I promised to give you a story last week. I had my first child at fourteen. I was six weeks late starting high school as he was born on September the first. Talk about hell. Starting a new school late and for such a scandalous reason. I was so nervous. I was terrified.

One of my step brothers was dating this amazing girl. She was held back a couple of years, and was so beyond caring about the “social norms”. Our school had the main entrance into the cafeteria. She knew the day I was starting. She knew how scared I was. So I got off of the bus, and saw her sitting there at the doors with a boombox (it was 1989.) Seeing me, she hit the button. Out of the speakers, at a volume that shook the glass in the doors of the cafeteria, she blasts that song. It started my high school career off on a better note. I was laughing. I was suddenly feeling like I was accepted. This song has been that feeling for me ever since.

Creative commonality

Fae Corps Inc

When prowling through the interwebs and the dark reaches of social media, I have noticed something. Artists, authors, and other creatives all have certain traits.

1.) Self Doubt – Finding true confidence in any creative seems to be rare. Now I am not talking about the bravado that many of us put forth. That image of confidence that we want the world to see. Nope, I am talking about true confidence. That feeling that we are worthy, that we are enough.

2.) High Intelligence and Empathy – though there is a variance… I have seen those who are naturally creative as often being likely to be both highly intelligent and highly empathetic.

3.) Needs validity – Imposter syndrome is so common. That fear of failure. The fear of not being as good as others. So we seek the praise of those viewing the work we do.

4.) Searching – creative…

Author Spotlight – Paul Lubaczewski

Fae Corps Inc

Today’s author spotlight is Paul Lubaczewski. He dabbles in Horror, Horror-Comedy,   Sci-Fi, Fantasy and writes mostly short stories and novels.

When we asked him how long he’s been writing, he had this to say: “Fiction about 4 years now. I was a reviewer before that, and wrote poetry and lyrics before that.” We also asked him why he started and he said because of his daughter Nik’s wedding. He wanted her to have something she could show people.

He is published and he chose to become an indie author because he didn’t know if it was a decision as much as something that just happened. Agents are harder to deal with and get answers from than publishers a lot of the time, so he just started querying indie presses instead.

He resides in Appalachia and has three cats: the Brothers Meow Charlie Sheen and Abaddon and there is also Elsa…
