song of the year
« on: February 01, 2014, 02:32:37 PM »
Anyone else picked up on the song of the year award - I do recall reading about it by fellow 11'ers earlier on in one of the threads here ... anyways here's the link:

Chances are it was actually written in 11 minutes.

Ha ha - and don't underestimate the power of your 11's

Todays music is conditioning the masses for what is coming.  You don't get fame through hollywood or the music industry without completely selling out.  Lorde is just another example of it.  You doubt me watch her video for Team.  You see quite clearly it is a song about a post apocalyptic world.  The kids living in old run down buildings, living like a street gang, and the newcomer having to have a duel to join the gang.  Or check the opening lyrics " We have not yet lost all our graces, The hounds will stay in chains"   This is a very biblical reference as when we lose our graces of the lord the hounds of hell will be unleashed on the world.  Do not look to top 40's music for answers.  Because they are subliminally messing with peoples heads.

Why is hollywood called hollywood, the Holly branch was used by old druids it was their magic wand so to speak.  So hollywood casts its magic across America.  Jordan Maxwell if you think he's crazy or not teaches people this.  I also have a wiccan friend who has confirmed this for me.  Yes the holly tree is known to wiccans to for it's magical properties.

   Lorde's Royals.  She seems to profess one thing then behave in the exact opposite way, but since she is so intelligent she, I think, is playing " the Hollywood mentality", playing "the music industry" and is reaching out to the masses to get her message across, and performing on the Grammy's would be a great way to reach out. I think that there is an ever growing group of people who abhor the "Celebrity lifestyle", and don't get all excited about that carrot on a stick. Which is why I think she craves a different kind of buzz.
(Just saw 7:11 on my computer clock)
   You couldn't get me to be a "Hollywood" celebrity for anything in the world. Don't want to live in Beverly Hills, Aspen or anywhere like that. I crave a different kind of buzz too. Something more realistic.
   If you listen to her songs like Tennis Court, Buzzcut Season, Glory and Gore and White Teeth Teens, there is some real wisdom in her music. I understand Tennis Court, Royals and White Teeth Teens because I can deeply identify with those songs, but you have to kind of read between the lines to understand what she is trying to say.
    In the video Dred mentioned, someone here at 11phenom. pointed out the same video that there is a television set with a snowy background with the number 11 on it. Makes me wonder if Ella is an 11er too. That can't be just a random number because there are no coincidences.
   In her case I think she is very pure, and it is my feeling that she is as her album title reflects. I think she is a pure heroine. I have done what homework there is to do and she seems to be unusually gifted, not unlike Jimi Hendrix, both very young, musical geniuses'. She has written all of the songs on her album, Pure Heroine and I think she is too smart to fall for the "Hollywood" trap.
   I'm 58 years old and I may have more life experiences that others here who are younger. On occasion I respectfully disagree with others. Dred says that you don't get fame through Hollywood or the music industry without completely selling out.
   One thing I know for sure is that nothing is 100%. People get famous in Hollywood and through the music industry for all kinds of reasons. Some go for it because they are fame junkies, some are successful because they have natural acting or musical talents, and some just get lucky (or unlucky).
 It's quite possible that Ella and the band are using "Hollywood" and the "music industry" to turn them on their ear.
   Wouldn't that make sense? How clever would that be? Isn't that something that someone who are very intelligent would do? Outsmarting the one's who think they're so damn smart by being truly intelligent?
   Let me finish by saying that sometimes we read too much into things and people have different interpretations of things like lyrics in songs. In my 58 years I've seen a lot of that too. And one last thing, fighting never gets us anywhere. Love you all.

You don't get played on top 40 without the Industry approving your music.  Simple as that, if you don't do as they want then you don't get play, you don't get advertised, no one will hear you.  You have to play their politics as well, this is the conditioning.  It's Hip or Cool to endorse complete amorality now a days.  You want examples for that watch the grammys.  Just because 11's are used in a video does not make it good.  As well as lorde is just the mouthpiece she doesn't direct the videos that do have underlying meanings.

Also the song I was talking about is not the video with 11.  The song I mentioned was "Team" there is no tv in that song you were mixing it up with her other popular song "Royals".  Which if I was to interpret the meaning behind that, it's that we aren't royals we are the underclass.  Do you not see Widening gap between Rich and poor in everyday life now a days? 

You want an example how no one hears you if you don't do as the industry wants?   Look to Dave Chappelles stand up comedy shows that he did last year.  He spoke out against hollywood and the industry, now no one goes to his show.  Yet for a time this guy was one of the most popular comedians and had one of the most successful shows.

I'll edit this in as well.  I am not saying her music is bad, it is damn good as a matter of fact that is how this works.  You get hooked cause it is good.  It is what is behind it that is bad, and how the celebs affect everyday human choices.
