Focused on me

Nights I’ve spent pondering this have finally come to an abrupt end. Seems all the more as we continue to destroy ourselves we have those that just wish it’d all end & we’d come together in some form of unity. Change for this world would require a complete mental change at how we look at everything. A place where if I believe something & you believe differently we are still able to co-exist? Those that dream of this know its just that , a dream,. Selfishly we lock up our money & pass by homeless folk daily all because we’re above them with our job & money. What we fail to realize is that they just like us are human like us & no one is above or below anyone, doesn’t matter what the government says about money wise. No one is above or below anyone. Yet we stick our noses up at such what we label filthy & lowly folk because they’re not like us? We began truly falling apart as human race when we started thinking so highly of ourselves. You know that favorite actor you like? You are like them but fame tells you otherwise. Favorite musician, you like them are the same but simply because of fame they’re perceived as gods to us, idols to put it correctly. It breaks me down to see people flip out & treat folk so poorly or so highly as if everywhere they go is a red carpet. All of us were created by God & we are all, regardless of your stand or opinion, His creation. Arguments made that we came from anywhere else are truly invalid but as a human race we started examining & researching some non-sense. With research comes good studies & just plain foolish studies. Money has become our centerfold it is our god & the only God has been replaced by numerous idols & falsehoods. But as a human race we beg for hope & change apart from Jesus. We keep getting wake up calls that we are coming to our own destruction. With each debate from candidates the choices get worse & worse. We just want honesty & we want someone who will take a stand but we’re asking for too much of man. We’re relying too much on man & self. Good is not truly good apart from God. Yet we praise the rich & famous. Mock God & Jesus, all while wanting hope & change. In the midst of tragedy we suddenly wanna unify & any other day we want nothing to do with the person to our left or right. We live in a block, ignore, & mute world. I believe this, you believe that well I have to block you because we can’t agree to disagree you’re just too toxic. We push away every person who disagrees & bother not to see why or talk further. Selfishly, we’ve clung to money & famous people as our gods &we fail to see why as a human race we’re destroying ourselves. As technology advances we get lazier & dumber. Books are becoming a thing of the past, going out is becoming a thing of the past, everything is online & each step we get more advanced & get lazier & dumber. When will we open our eyes? We are all people & no fame, money, nor name should put us above or below anyone. We can’t continue to this ‘me, me, me’ mentality because its getting us nowhere & we’re destroying ourselves. On this path we’re going things are just gonna get worse before they get better. Change involves actually making a point to change & not just saying it to grab attention, follows, fame, or friends. We’ve replaced God with these garbage idols & greed has taken over our mind sets. We can’t continue like this.. Eventually the wake up calls will cease..eventually what God promised will happen & then it’ll be too late to change. We must wake up from this blindness, corruption, greed, & selfishness we keep living in.

Addressing the issue in the castle fandom by Lucas Oliver

Normally I’m not one to wanna do this because though I’m just one of the few that I’m sure are growing tired of this, I figured enough tweets & FB posts on it. Lets open up this can of what could turn into a huge argument. Since season 8 started fans have been utterly whiny and rude to the cast, crew, and new additions to castle (hayley played by toks). Since episode one some have said ‘you ruined the show by splitting them up’, others have said ‘I see what you’re doing reminds me of old castle’. Each Monday has been a rant of nothing but people complaining that the new show runners haven’t put caskett back together. Each Monday they watch just enough to see if caskett is gonna make amends & when they don’t they go watch something else and pick up there device and lay into whomever they want about how trash the show is now. First & foremost I wanna address that caskett aren’t split up nor separated, divorcing even though that’s what most what most will utter every time. Secondly, the writers have written some brilliant episodes this season & foolishly more than half the fandom has given into everything has to be about caskett. Forget lanie, espo, Ryan, & Alexis or Martha. They just want caskett & if they don’t have it they cut the tv off. One thing that gets to me more than anything is more than ever the castle fandom has lost any & all respect mainly due to the fact that they’ve been relentlessly laying into the new cast members, show runners & crew as well. Why you might wonder? Because they’re duo aren’t living under the same roof. If you don’t remember at all how passionate Beckett was about finding her mothers killer & she would’ve done anything to get bracken & Richard helped her find that man. But the further down the rabbit hole she goes its not just one man. Which is where we are right now! First episode contained so much explanation as to what could happen if Beckett chased this. But apparently few of us care about story lines & the beauty of this show. Alexi & Terrence have done such a great job but most will never know because they’re too caught up in two characters being together to even care about story lines or backstory. I’ve had some opportunities to chat with some folks who disagree with this season & not a one I’ve talked to has even bothered to see past seasons. They just started watching cause of caskett & got hooked on that. This Mondays episode was a huge example of how rude this fandom has become towards the show itself. People not watching because of Stana & some not watching because of Adam Baldwin, (those that didn’t watch firefly don’t know how awesome it was to have Adam back on castle). They’ve grown reliant on one character, I love Stana & she’s a tremendous actress but at the end of the day getting absolutely obsessed with both her & Nathan is a bit too much. By that I’m referring to telling the writers & show runners the show is trash. As far as ratings go, they’re low because so called fans gave up on the writers when they’ve explained even explained in the episode why they did what they did. But still yet these so called fans have already thrown them under the bus. Yet no matter what’s said to these so called fans they won’t listen because they’re too focused on thinking that caskett is separated or divorced & they’re not. Every time I did scroll through the castle hashtag on twitter there was very little support just a bunch of folks complaining & whining Stana wants there acting as if Nathan wanted to do this episode without her or the show runners asked her not to be there & it wasn’t at all that, she had plans to do something else important but no one listens just wanna complain more about things. During the airing of the first episode of season 8 I knew the moment it ended people would lose it because this fandom is known for being too attached & putting something like that in episode they’d ignore the explanation as to why. Those of us that still support the writers & show runners see what they’re doing since day one. Season 7 if you ask me was filled with a lot of dry moments, don’t get me twisted I still enjoyed but last season we watched perfect caskett & it was dull & bland. That’s not what caskett is to us who have watched since season 1. Caskett has been through many bumps, forks, close calls, & intense moments, it’s like the fandom has forgotten that. When you go back & see old seasons you’ll see the spark that Alexi & Terrence are trying to re-ignite in us. Yet if you want perfection or just caskett go ahead & don’t watch it’s your loss. I said this twice & I’ll say this again. When caskett is back in the loft & things amended. Those that attacked the writers, show runners, & cast or crew will be saying ‘I knew the writers wouldn’t let us down, trusted them this whole time’. You’ve no right to say so if you at any point degraded, attacked or even said this show should get cancelled. Lastly, I wanna address something if this fandom would realize these things & have some respect for the new cast & show runners. Then when it does get cancelled it’ll be because trolls & disrespectful people didn’t know how to treat the cast & crew and they didn’t wanna do the show anymore cause of it. Personally if I had any part in the show I wouldn’t have social media because of exactly what’s been happening to Toks & the other crew & cast. After all these seasons if I was in the shoes of Stana or Nathan does this fandom deserve a season 9? I don’t think so after how rude & disrespectful it has treated everyone including other fans that love the show. Even the fanfic writers have been attacked. Lastly, it’s a tv show & at the end of the day people should not say they’ll support something then jump ship when the writers have to do something so they can continue a storyline that is unless you just want them to end it in may & be done (I don’t). If you ask me the low ratings are due to these so called fans who are whining & complaining by refusing to watch because caskett aren’t together. If people only paid attention to the story line of these two characters maybe they’d stop obsessing over them & see that story line & stop being googly eyed over caskett 24/7 plus wanting that every episode. I support Alexi & Terrence, they’ve made amazing episodes & re-ignited that spark for me. I love the new additions to the cast hayley is amazing & I love her accent too! To those supporting this til the wheels fall off, stay strong cause we know in the end things will be beautiful always.
