I'm Your Ch-Ch-Cherry Bomb


I feel like our society needs to a wake up call. A revolution in fashion, art, music, and attitude. I feel stuck. Stuck where I am and with my age. I'm bursting with all these ideas and creativity and passion yet I feel limited and lost when it comes to channeling those feelings. I want to shock the world, be profound. I want people to be appaled with my work and my lifestyle. And my clothes and my language and my actions. I want to be surrounded by wonderful, free spirits who live and breath art. I want to not care about money but to live. To actually live and feel. I wish to feel every aspect of my passions and I want them to explode onto my work and my life.



I want something greater than this life. I want to be a part of something big. Something life-changing. Sometime that will impact our society and our future. I look upon people like Twiggy, The Beatles, Edie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol, and Joan Jett and the Runaways and cannot help but admire their bravery and the impact they've made on pop culture and art. I crave for that kind of lifestyle. Art isn't what I live for. It's what I am. What my body and mind is composed of. Taking art from me would be the same as taking life from me.


I want a fucking revolution.
The current popular pop culture is boring and bland. It's repetitive and composed of recycled ideas. I want something new and fresh. Better yet, I want to be a part of it. I don't care about fame or money. If I'm ever to be famous, I want it to be for something I did. But where to start? I'm not going to think, I'm going to do.

Who's with me?

i completely agree. there are people with too many ideas for their own good stuck in the past, because the past is simply better than the present. i loathe our generation and i'm right there with you my dear.

kylie said...

this is amazing cassidy. it seems like you have so many things to say, yet i've never heard you speak. that should change. if you shared your opinions more openly, you could spark a change in the people around you.

Julia said...

Amazing inspiration, and a very noble aim. I feel like I'm old and jaded at 23, I once believed in a revolution but I'm not even sure I do anymore. Revolution just for the sake of it is pointless, and I lack the belief that I can change the world in any meaningful way.

Instead I try to live my life as a personal, grassroots revolution. If we could all make a tiny part of the world a better, more intersting, more beautiful place then maybe there could be a revolution to change the world.

Thank you for this thought provoking post.

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

I actually did a whole project on the Beatles and how they innovated a world, so it's great to see that you're so inspired by them. If you want to start a revolution, start with a small step and move forward from there. :)

Alecto said...

i could not agree with you more. the whole world feels stagnant at the moment, yeah? i think your position/view point on the subject is an excellent start.
