What better way to start off our first post than with what we stand for, our ideals. We found what defined us with the help of a song. Paolo Nutini, a scottish singer-songwriter exudes soul in his tone. His single Iron Sky simply struck a chord with us. Everyone has their story. Paolo was trying to convey his message to politicians in general. Whereby questions that need answers are answered with a certain arrogance, with a laugh and a smile, and it’s sad.
// Are you living your life?
Exactly what we’re trying to convey. No, not that the politicians here are that way. But that’s a whole other controversial topic on its own. We’re trying to encourage the population to actually stop and think. To think about what you actually want in life. It’s not simply, money. Though if you fall under that category, we’re happy for you and we wished we could actually be like you. Chasing money is simple. You will have the means to live and maybe even luxuriously. Good for you! But for people like us at Fussy, we want so much more than monetary stability. We want meaning. We want purpose.
And in this song, we found a voice similar to ours. In it, there was a speech. What we wanna point out is the following,
“Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.”
Unnatural men and machines being the general population and ideals. You are yourself. Don’t do something which someone else is doing just cause it’s easy to follow a path that’s been tried and tested. Do what you want. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. Truth is, you will do best in something you’re passionate about. And this speech, strangely enough is by Charlie Chaplin, in The Great Dictator. It’s a film which was written, produced, scored, directed and starred by him. Yes, all of those roles. And if you thought he was just a comedian, you’re right he was quite the comedian and he had lived a life of meaning.
// So are you satisfied with yours?
