How To Change Your Life

The Four Agreements are: 
1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

It's My Beat


I love my children sincerely. I just know they can get on my nerves sometimes. I'm not ashamed to say, but I am learning more about who they are over what I want them to be. I pray they become who they wanna be and that I and their mom is able to provide all they need to reach their purpose in life. Also that we can tolerate their sometimes annoying process on their way to purpose. Its not easy, but I believe if I gotta beat it into you then its something you're not in to.
The bible talks about spare the rod; spoil the child. However, another of my beliefs is that the rod isn't corporal punishment but firm guidance like a shepherd guiding lambs out the street or away from wolves. If I beat them for doing wrong all the time, I'm establishing that they should be afraid of me when they make mistakes and they will be prone to become liars. Something I definitely don't want them to be but it would be something I created in them.
I was afraid of my dad. It cost me a possible successful art and music career. I was afraid to ask for the fare to go to the entrance exam at Art and Design High School. I coulda been in there the same time as Mobb Deep and Pharoahe
Pharoahe Monch and Me NY 1993
but I was afraid to ask for a simple thing because my dad established himself more as a person to fear than respect. I don't really blame him. His dad was a strict disciplinarian and so am I. The difference is I'm a big believer in THE WORD. That's what I beat them with because you can't beat that!!
I never thought I would beat my kids after 5 years of age because from my experience at 5 they are able to communicate quite well. Though we put them in kindergarten, never give up the opportunity to parent your children or guide your little nephews and cousins in the way they should go not the way YOU think they should go.

So all parents new and seasoned build up the courage to deal with your crazy kids so that their level of ignorance and awkwardness is not reason for you to hook off or body slam them but don't ease up. Anyone who obeys because they afraid to get their head flown or they get a reward for obedience is a pet, a slave who will never respect their masters. (Look like I got a lot to say today.) Think about who you respect either IRL or a sports figure or celebrity. I'm sure those persons have never inflicted violence on you or paid you for your homage. Right? We respond to their consistent goodness just like the God we serve. I'm a'end this by asking you to remember how good God has been to you, how bad your parents were to you, how better you could have liked to have been respected as a child, and how you want the best for your children and the next generation no matter how ratchet you are. Love is love. Ahight yaw stay chune. Book soon

WTF

Well this is just a free writing session. What I wanna say is somewhere in the recesses of my brain. I thought about that word 'recess' and never knew why that word meant break from school. In the dictionary the word means a small space created by building part of a wall further back from the rest : a table set into a recess.
a hollow space inside something : the concrete block has a recess in its base.
(usu. recesses) a remote, secluded, or secret place : the recesses of the silent pine forest | figurative the dark recesses of his soul.
2 a period of time when the proceedings of a parliament, committee, court of law, or other official body are temporarily suspended : talks resumed after a month's recess | the Senate was in recess.
a break between school classes : the mid-morning recess.
verb
1 [ trans. ] [often as adj. ] ( recessed) attach (a fitment) by setting it back into the wall or surface to which it is fixed : recessed ceiling lights.
2 [ intrans. ] (of formal proceedings) be temporarily suspended : the talks recessed at 2:15.
[ trans. ] suspend (such proceedings) temporarily.
(of an official body) suspend its proceedings for a period of time.

Whatever! I'm outta my mind and I like it. Waking up at odd hours to write or to watch NetFlix has been my norm for I don't know how long. One of these nights/early mornings, I'm gonna come up with the okey doke that will change the world. My family depends on it. Our future depends on it. The moves I make are not for me anymore. Everything is for them. When they grow and have pickney they may very well continue the legacy ill innovation.
My oldest Genesis is an ill dancer and a brave communicator. My youngest daughter Zuri Elle aka @BKLYNZU has mad talent. A freestyle beast. Nazzy, my son, is bonkers. Super intelligent, crazy funny and has a photographic memory.
The LORD has been real good to my family. If we never get filthy rich (which I can't see why wouldn't we) I'm content with where we are now. Its a happy moment. Namaste

Worst Show Ever

So yes I'm back! But for what? Same problems and worst than what I was going through before. The lid on my macbook is done so I have to prop it on the fruit bowl on the dining table for it to stay up. That's really not big of a deal. however because the camera is in the lid, there have been times the lid would drop BRROOP and close hard and there must be some connection damage in the hinge, there are times the iSight camera feels like it don't have to come on today and it don't care if I got a show to do or not. All them things can fix so I continue cut and go through.

There's a new Ustream broadcast web app which is great but it further reveals how lame my situation is. I get a message telling me either my computer or my web connection sucks because the quality that I desire to do my show with is not gonna happen according to them.

Then the video looks like old school MSN Messenger webcam interaction with the stop and go shit. Ain't nobody got time fi that. Still. Regardless of the challenges, I press on because I've had experiences on other cats sights and radio stations where the components appeared labored but I still enjoyed the music and the on air personality AND THAT AINT BROKE OVER HERE.

Please keep rocking with me and I know that day will come when Decent Something will be sounding like Hot 97 or something.

Just wanna big up Miss Lily everytime. I was listening at work and they had The Beatminerz Mr. Walt and Evil Dee on there rockin'! They broadcast from NYC and there is no extra antics. You don't see video, you hear music and the personalities. Me nuh thinkn me ago mek video kill da radio star yah!
This post is a bit of catharsis because InI just realize me nah go show off my face no longer. Just music me a go penetrate. See my live in LA Feb 26th for UMOJA at DUB CLUB if you love watch mon perform. In the meantime, keep on riggling and jiggling to the sounds of our age. BOOM

FastBook - Give It Up To Me


I been on Facebook from when and I've given it some of my best writing, ideas, jokes, memories, grievances, prayers, proverbs, pictures, reviews, etc. I've spent more time on facebook than with my god, my family and my friends. So today I'm deactivating my account. No worries. I appreciate facebook. I just need to spend more quality time with the people and things I have neglected for some time.

I'll still have my CoknIODire facebook.com/cokniodireone page but my personal O Williams aka King CoknI situation will be done done. If you don't hear from me that would be unfortunate because that means our only connect is just facebook.
Reach out when and if you can as will I (am) (stupid) LOL.

We'll see how it go this week. I'll know if I'm an addict in about an hour. Whenever I get the urge, I'm gonna draw for the basic instructions before leaving earth. After that I will spend a likkle time with my family. If they are not around I will call. If they can not be reached by phone I will write them a letter. True me have stamp. Then I'm a check for me real friends dem. Many of them are DJs and I want to be able to help them out as they have helped me out immensely.

Just had a thought. My sound system UMOJA has events to promote and has decided not to rely on social media solely. To do that is not the move. We know better to reach out on the real side. Invite through mail and phone. So me a'go do the same something. I'm mad excited about the outcome.
Pray for your boy king!


Peace.

PRO DUCTION

Thee frustration is that my current mac is mad slow. I have been pining to get more RAM for it and eventually get a new machine. In the interim I guess its best not too complain. I know people who don't even have electricity and me deh riff about latency. Still, I just wanted to know what you thought about the new edition to the site? As you can see you have the option of looking at past shows, see what them a say in the Social Network and chat with me and other viewers live all without interrupting what's being presented above. A friend at work had a problem when visiting the site for the first time and wasn't sure if they should click the 'Chatty Chatty" link to go tot the chatroom or what. By clicking it you were taken to another page and the show would reload. Not the best online experience in my opinion.


One thing that I work hard at, sometimes to a fault, is doing whatever i can to make the user experience high quality. Which leads me to why I'm even blogging right now. I've been listening to past performances of Decent Something and the OTO Morning Show and while the shows are dope, they need quite a bit of improvement. I'm doing a lot on the fly and many times I commit trainwreckage. Right now s I type, I am laying out the whole scheme of my show just like a professional director would do and have all the elements pre selected because when I'm live and I think of things on the fly, the searching over burdens the processor and causes the infamous beachball leaving me in cyber limbo. Then I got to fill up space with mindless banter about naught. Not doing that no more.


Thee other thing I've noticed that my energy as well as my viewership has plummeted so definitely I need to get on it on it alright alright. My health is stable and I fixed the headphone jack on my mixer. You will hear better blends, iller freestyles, appropriate effects and graphics and of course the best in decent music.


Please holler at me and let me know you read this and if you have any ideas as to make the shows any better I am open to hear at this stage of production. JAH BLESS
