I AM COOL

Posted in Ferrari L, Food for thought on May 1, 2009 by nikekid23

…but I wonder if those who proclaim to be truly understand its meaning.  In contrast to the definition that can be found in most dictionaries, it is not the attribute of composed detachment.  It is cool to be one’s self…that’s my definition, and life told me so…not a book. I came to this conclusion while waiting in line for the Air Yeezy’s that I’ve been baffling about all week.  I woke up Monday morning with $23 dollars in my pocket and hustled my way to $1110 by Wednesday.  While sitting in line I was blogging, I came across a picture of Jay-Z wearing the Air Yeezy’s. It then dawn upon me that he did not have to wait in line for his shoes—this is simply because he is such a significant individual and THAT’S cool.  The fact that he worked so hard to manifest his dreams and aspirations allows him the ability to walk into a store and say “give me those and I’m not waiting in line for them.”  See, this has nothing to do with shoes anymore. This is fucking life.  I refuse to wait in line for X amount of hours to spend $300 dollars to purchase the dream of another man.  Myself refuses to let myself proceed upon such a heinous act of inconsistency in search of being cool.  See, there is a difference between looking “cool” and actually being an inhabitant of it.  Kanye, before the fame and after, would never be caught dead waiting in line to purchase the dream of another.  He was too busy crafting dreams of his own for the entertainment and acquisition of others.  It is lame to wait in line and I mean that in the most figurative sense possible.  If you ask anyone who proclaims to be cool, why are you cool, you will receive one answer.  “Because I’m different.”  But what’s the difference between not wearing what everyone else is wearing or standing in line with the “cool kids” to look the same as them.  Actually, nothing.  Cool is not an appearance, it’s a state of being—and from this state of being is exuded the aura of “cool.”  Dig this, there are two types of people in this world.  There are innovators who create an ideology or consensus of cool and the idiots who wear and advertize the “cool.”  I create the “cool” that defines popular culture. 

Which are you?

Ha. I was told to wait in line for about 40 hours and then pay $85 dollars more that what my store actually purchased the shoe for.  Ha!  That shit offended me.  They got me beyond the restriction of fucked up.  I’m cool because I set the trends.  I am Kanye.  And not in a literal sense—I am what he radiates.  Confidence…substance…swagger…cool…

Just food for thought. And I didn’t learn that shit in college.
