Heine Bros Radio

There have been 3 different times this year at Heine Bros where they have played one of my favorite songs over the speakers in the shop.

The first was The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson. The second was Lava Lamp by Thundercat. The third is the one currently playing which is Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix.

It just makes me happy when I can sit down and not have to pop in headphone to set the tone right. These new baristas got good taste in music. If I worked in here it would be lit as fuck. Depending on what shift I would be on would depict what album or station I would be on. The day of the week also is a benefactor as well.

A day like today would be good for some Lo-Fi tunes. Tomorrow (Wed.) is totally Thundercat, although I would play him in the evenings. Thursday is like a mixture of whatever and Friday I would have to settle with some Big K.R.I.T. My weekends would consist of a lot of Ab-Soul and Black Hippy shit with SiR’s November Album jumping in here and there.

I do have to keep in mind that whatever I play has to be edited… Unless I’m closing up haha. But that’s just an idea for a job that I don’t have. If I were to become a Barista at Heine Bros I would like to be the manager of the Aux Cord. 😁

Ps. I’m pretty sure their listening to Pandora. Haha

Think About It, We Make The World Work

You have a job right?

Have you ever sat down to think about how your job benefits someone else and how this chain continues no matter what you do? Our everyday lives consist of the work of other people. Whether you are at Starbucks purchasing coffee or shipping packages to eager customers, everything we do requires people. Here’s the breakdown.

I broke down different ways of receiving income into two different categories. Your first one is the “Need” and the second one is the “Like.” Those two categories may sound very simple but we’re about to dive a little deeper.

We’ll start with the “Need.”

When you are need of money you have to go out and find a job. Most of us get caught up in a job we highly dislike but we are only there becasue of the money. This job of course serves other people, the cliche cause and effect situation. No matter what job you choose, that job provides some sort of service to people. Humans are needed for businesses to survive. Without people needed some sort of service than what’s the purpose right?

Okay, so the Need was simple enough, let’s move on to the “Like.”

The Like is an activity you enjoy doing in life. This can range from drawing, skateboarding, reading, writing, or whatever the hell it is you like to do. People who excel in their “Like,” have an opportunity to turn it into a career. In order for this Like to become a career, it requires the satisfaction of other people like you and me. We are the people who made Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, and N.W.A famous. They needed us to like their music for them to become successful. Do you see what happened? People were needed yet again.

If you have made it this far down the article and have said to yourself, “Well duh!” Than you’re a step closer to what I’m going to hit you with. If we need one another to survive, then why are we killing ourselves? I guess we can look at the battles we have fought throughout history as a way of survival, but even then, countless lives have been taken away from this earth.

With me being a firm believer in reincarnation, what if that 9 year old little boy who was assassinated in Chicago was going to be out future president that was going to make a huge impact? Now he has to go right back through the reincarnation cycle to return. Not to mention that since he was murdered he will probably carry some type of defect with him in the next life. In some sense, we’re holding ourselves back from what we truly can be by removing future possibilities. Those possibilities now have to wait for the next life to carry out those duties.

We should stop trying to hold back mankind and focus on the Needs and Likes that help make the world go around.
