A few words from the man himself . . .

"I don't always write serious stuff, sometimes things I write are trivial and silly but there are times when I'll be watching the , do some research and am genuinely upset at the state of the world today. I feel powerless, but I have a voice and I want to use it, especially when we learn about injustice, we should at the very least use it. Sometimes it helps remind me of the a different perspective of life as well. In the society I live in, its all too easy to be dragged under and diagnosed with depression and other maladies of our times today, but in actual fact, very few people really have that much cause for concern considering we can afford to clothe and feed ourselves and have social services and benefits etc... things that many communities can only dream of. This is one of many of things that make me restless. As a result of these things every so often I guess I need to rant and this is my way of expressing that. Enjoy... " ~ Akillez (Dec 2011)
