What Can Straight Outta Compton Teach You About Perspective?

Plenty, even if you’re not a musician.


If You’re Against it, You’re For It


At one point of the movie, a group of protesters are seen stomping and steamrolling N.W.A. CDs in the streets. The group sees this while riding in their tour bus. Eazy-E comments: “See, the truth is, they can do whatever they want with them. They bought them.” Then they all laugh.

Isn’t funny how people can hate something so much that they’ll buy it and give it free advertising? People complain about what’s on the radio, what’s on TV, who’s in the White House. I once heard someone say they watched 5 minutes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, then turned it off. She then proceeded to tell us all about what happened on last week’s episode and the one before that. Meanwhile, I’m just laughing at the longest 5 minutes I’ve ever heard. People have entire blogs and YouTube channels dedicated to ranting. Is it me, or do the complainers talk more about this stuff than the fans do?

Meanwhile, they’re either ignoring or slapping the faces of those who are giving them what they want. They won’t even look at the underground positive music or independent films. They refuse to vote. They’ll leave bad reviews, but won’t even “like” a company that provided good business. Breakthrough with Tony Robbins got cancelled after six episodes due to low ratings, meanwhile these shows that seemingly everyone hates are renewed season after season.

The result? They stuff they hate gets all the attention, while the stuff they like goes unnoticed. It’s the basic definition of Law of Attraction: what you focus on, expands.

They complain about that, too.
