Keira Knightley Poses Topless

So a few days ago a magazine came out with a real, unedited photo of Keira Knightley showing her breasts. Yes, all you crazy perverted men out there, it actually really happened.

What she did was a statement. A statement about how much photos are edited to make people look different to real life. She said that she would pose topless, if the photo was in no way edited, or manipulated, or had an effects added onto it at all. It was to stand up against all of the false imagery in the world.

I must say however, looking at the photograph, the photo isn’t perfect, no, but it also is edited slightly. The image is black and white, which immediately takes out some of her ‘imperfections’ . You will not be able to see if, for example, she had a rash, has marks on her skin. You can’t really see anything like that.

I think the main thing she was aiming for was to tell people ‘No I don’t have big boobs. I am me, I was born this way, I don’t care.’. It is very bold for her to stand up and say this, and it makes me rank her alongside Emma Watson in this years list of people who have stood up for themselves, and women. They have also helped try and make people realize how corrupt, and terrible our society is.

In this world, we encourage women to become super skinny. We make people anorexic. We make people not feel comfortable with themselves because of there weight, breast or penis size, hair, tattoos, face, legs, waist, hips, literally everything is criticized in this world. There is no perfect person. Everyone is unique, and individual. People need to realise this, and stop acting pathetic.

We are who we are. Be proud of yourself.

A Talk about the Scottish Independence Vote (Before Finding Out The Results)

So for those of you in America, or wherever around the world you are, if you don’t know Scotland had the election yesterday. It was for whether or not they should be classified as there own country separate from the United Kingdom. This has caused a HUGE uproar and loads of controversy from both sides. I for one, feel that the United Kingdom is a family. Yes, at one time, several hundreds of years ago, we fought for control of Scotland, and we took them over. However times have changed, and now we are like a family. As the years have gone on, everyone has become accustomed the way things are, and Scottish citizens have merged with our society, and, as I said, we are all like a big family now.

I understand why Scotland wants its independence. They will finally be free from our grasps, and no longer will they be controlled by our government. Ireland has its own one, and Scotland, unfortunately for them, is ruled by ours, so it IS understandable why they want to be free from all of this. HOWEVER, this will cause them more harm then good, as they will inherit some of our countries debt, because for those who don’t know, England is in a fuck-ton of debt, way more then it should be considering it is one of the most advanced countries in the world.

Another reason why this is a bad thing for Scotland is that they want get there own army, so if, for some reason, a war started, they would have nothing to fight with, which is a terrible thing, because (whilst it is unlikely) any country could actually go and take them over. This could cause more wars, however this is VERY unlikely.

I am very eager to see the outcome of the vote, which will be revealed in 5 hours from now I think, so I am nervous. This could be a huge change, and will go down in history if it gets through. The UK flag will be changed, and it will effect the world that my children and grandchildren will grow up. It IS a HUGE deal.

Anyway, I will write another blog after I find out the results!

Positives and Negatives of Technology, and Views on Modern Society

So I DID miss a day of blogging, and for that I am sorry, but I have been ridiculously busy with my real life. I am studying a sound engineer course at Access to Music and MY GOD does it take the energy out of me. However, it is only 3 days a week so I will be able to get some more blogging in now. Today I am going to discuss the positives and negatives of modern technology.

In the 1970’s life was very different. The world would be almost unrecognizable to the modern society. There were no phones, no high tech 4K televisions in 3D. Nothing like that. Music was completely different. There were no songs about partying, fighting and fucking. So yeah, all of the chav’s wouldn’t recognize this world. One where to listen to an album you had to go out and get a record, and you would listen to it over and over again. You wouldn’t just go on iTunes and download the songs you want to hear and after a few months, when the next popular song is out forget about the previous one.

To some people, the golden age of technology is the best thing since sliced bread. The ease of searching for what you want, ordering things just by moving your finger, and talking to people again, by moving your finger, all of this is amazing to some people, and yeah, it is useful. So in some aspects this is good. However the same people think that spending your life on a chair playing Call of Duty is good… and watching Eastenders… and chatting to people on the phone… and watching YouTube videos… and then going out to a 9 til 5 job on the minimum pay (that is if they are not on benefits). The life I just described is what so many people actually ASPIRE to nowadays. If this is what the majority of people who have been brought up in this world ruled by technology want, then is technology REALLY a good thing?

Oh, and to those of you thinking I am pointing my finger to something that doesn’t deserve the blame, YES this IS all because of technology. You can live an entire life on a computer if you want to. This is something that I myself have thought about for a long time. You could literally wake up in the morning, go to the toilet, eat breakfast, then go back into your bed, open your laptop, and let the day begin! You can listen to music on YouTube, watching some more viral videos for a few hours, then have lunch, then process to watch The Big Bang Theory, followed by some Friends re-runs. Then watch Scrubs, of Glee, or Eastenders or whatever is popular now. After this, make dinner (which is probably a microwaveable dinner bought from Tescos). Then go back to the internet. Maybe watch some more YouTube videos whilst chatting to people on Facebook. The most moving you could ever have to do is if the government find out you aren’t a job seeker and take away your benefits, FORCING you to get a job stacking shelves. The thing that shocks the most however, is that people want to live this way. They don’t seem tor really have dreams. The biggest aspiration I have seen someone who views life in this way have is to become a DJ at a nightclub.

Now, I have gone off my original topic a little bit. Technology causes so much harm, that I still think more harm is caused then good. I would be content not using technology for anything other then to message my friends occasionally, but even then, if I went back 10 or 15 years I would still be content with the technology then. I could just call my girlfriend, or my friend and tell them when and where I will meet them, or just have a 10 minute chat, rather then saying things over Facebook Messenger. In about 20 more years we may never actually see another human face. I really wouldn’t be surprised. Maybe everyone will be uploaded to the internet and we will all live our lives in cyberspace. Forever being subjected to talk to other people via Facebook. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Facebook was uploaded to everyone’s brains, and every new child born had to have a chip put into there brains to install Facebook into them.

Technology can sometimes be a wonderful thing, and indeed it has helped us in countless ways, and I would suffer a lot without technology in my life, but only because of work and mainly because I have become accustomed to watching films and TV programs every night, and talking to people on Facebook. I would feel weird, almost incomplete without all of this in my life, but NONE of it is really necessary. What would I do without all of this? Well I would do exactly what I did before I had all of this technology. I might actually pick up a deck of cards, or play a board game. This age of computers and Ultra HD TV’s is not the ideal world. Soon, actually talking to your friend face-to-face will be a novelty, and you will be called weird if you have an MP3 player, or if you don’t have the latest Google update installed into your brain. This isn’t what I want. This isn’t what should happen. The world is better then this. We were born to socialize, not touch a piece of metal to say to someone we love them, or to tell a loved one that a family member died. So yes, technology causes much more harm then good.
