Breaking Stuff

Dear World

Please Kill Me,

Greetings and happy Monday my tyrannical triad of typers, (rule of threes for ambiguous statements #Tres?). How in the good golly hell are ya’? Should the magical rose have lost its’ final petal – then the spell wasn’t broken, and you’re all damned to remain in your current beastly form, (#BearInTinyChair).

Failing that, I hope you remain monsters at heart, (prepared to take down the literary world – one claw-filled keystroke at a time).

In any case, I’ve missed you in my week off, (which I’ll explain further down), but, first thing’s first-

Breaking Stuff, (otherwise known as -the working title for every Fast and Furious movie).

So, I took a mini-hiatus last week to work on a pet-project of mine, (#AndroidPuppy #Don’tBeJealous). Obviously, with the plethora of other responsibilities and projects, (that I’ve been dragged kicking and screaming to participate in), this was highly advised against. Because of the continued insistence to do otherwise, I did what we scribbling-rebels do – and did it anyway.

Though I rarely tute my own horn, (when people are watching), the resulting conclusion of that project -in my humble opinion- was tremendous, and is currently in the process of being synthesized for use in your water supply, (#Don’tFightIt).

But, in all seriousness, I do truly believe that it is one of my better works, and I am working hard to get it to all of you (circumstantially), wonderful readers.

“What does this have to do with breaking stuff?”- You ask, (you didn’t) – well I’ll tell you.

As I gave the project a final read through, (and what for), I began to think about urgency. Why was it so important that this is released ASAP? What was the relevance if not only to rebel? (Will people think I’m weird for getting my coffee cup a wedding ring?) – and serious adult questions of the like.

The answer was simple. It was to Break Stuff.

As creatives, (in whatever medium of your sensual pleasure), we have a hidden duty to make statements that -in reality- have no proper place in polite society.

Sure, sometimes we make these statements with werewolves or other anthropomorphic beings – but they are important statements none the less. Some are universal and perpetual – so, it’s easy to time and plan for when these things must be said. Others are momentary, and if not said at the right time, will be overlooked completely. Thus, where the urgency comes in.

It was here that I realized that my recent stint of writer’s block came from a reluctance to write this thought. The truth of the matter is not only that I wanted to, but I HAD TO.

So, I did. And the only thing I’m more impressed with -is my body’s ability to non-lethally process the toxic amounts of caffeine that I drink-

*coughs up K-cup*

*puts it in Keurig*

“Mmm, Hazelnut.”


*We do this to break stuff. We do this to mold stuff. To build, to mend, to fix, and destroy. Don’t take the duty lightly.*

I’d like to think I’ve done and will continue to do my part in that, pretentious or otherwise, (and let’s face it, I’m a sociopath. Pretention fits me like a f**kin’ glove).

*Get out of your own way, and say what must be said before it’s never heard.*

And that ladies and gents, is why we do what we do.

That’s about it for me today lovely people. I hope my absence didn’t wound you too much. In any case, I’ll be back tomorrow for more Spring ramblings.

Beat Your Monday to a Pulp,

-Antwan Crump.
