Music & TV Way Back Challenges (Day 5 for TWB)

For TWB?

Yes TWB. @thewritersblock. This is day 5 of a seven day challenge to help @gmuxx pay back his loan to get over here from Europe. I am sending all the liquid SBD proceeds from all 7 posts of this challenge to The Writer's Block. I want to meet you too man, and I will, so this is my way of saying thanks for making the sacrifice to come out. I know it can't be easy, I've done my fair share of traveling abroad and expect it will be commonplace again soon enough. See you soon!

Wayyyy Back

This is day two of both my #tvshowwaybackchallenge (initiated by @saffisara) and the #musicwaybackchallenge (started by @greek-trail). Since Sara tagged me for both of these (thanks hun), and I promised I would do them, I am making them both in the same post(s). So, here we go!

The Music

Ah, number 5. This is probably the most powerful of all my building blocks. This is where I said, alright, I'm not taking anyone's shit anymore. I didn't care how big or small. This was when I started learning things outside of school. When I started to 'become a man', as it were. Huge turning point in my life, when my teen years turned into my adult years and I started making my own life's decisions and climbing the social ladder outside of the school hallways. When I learned and taught others about - respect. Here is "WALK" by Pantera.

The Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence
One step from lashing out at you
You want in, to get under my skin and call yourself a friend
I've got more friends like you, what do I do

[Pre-Chorus]
Is there no standard anymore
What it takes, who I am, where I've been belong
You can't be something you're not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

[Chorus]
Respect, walk, what did you say?
Respect, walk, are you talking to me?
Are you talking to me?

[Verse 2]
Run your mouth when I'm not around, it's easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize
Can you hear the violins playing your song?
Those same friends tell me your every word

[Pre-Chorus]
Is there no standard anymore
What it takes, who I am, where I've been belong
You can't be something you're not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

[Chorus]
Respect, walk, what did you say
Respect, walk, are you talking to me?

Respect, walk, what did you say
Respect, walk, are you talking to me?
Are you talking to me?
No way, punk

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
Respect, walk, what did you say
Respect, walk, are you talking to me?

Respect, walk, what did you say
Respect, walk, are you talking to me?
Are you talking to me?

Walk on home, boy

The Boob Tube

Growing up on a Native Reservation with light skin was brutal. I had to earn my spot at every table, and there was a movie I really identified with called 'Last of the Mohicans'. It was about the French and Indian War but mostly about a white guy that was adopted by the 'redskins'. I actually had a few families that 'adopted' me. It was then I started 'dancing with wolves', wrestling with bears and flying with the eagles.

You can join either of these challenges too by following the rules/guidelines:

  1. ➿ Choose one song or television show from any point in your youth.

  2. ➿ Write a few words about when & where you heard the song or watched the show for the first time, what it means to you, and/or why it holds a spot in your memories.

  3. ➿ Try to write your text while listening to the song or watching an episode. As soon as it ends, wrap up what you where writing and submit it.

  4. ➿ Do this for 7 days in a row if you get nominated.

  5. ➿ Mention one person who should do this on each day.

  6. ➿ Tag it with #musicwaybackchallenge or #tvshowwaybackchallenge and include these rules at the bottom of your post.

You're Tagged!

Since this is two challenges, I'm tagging two people. You can do both or pick one, but I hope you participate. Let's see, let's see, let's see... Fellow Native @eaglespirit, you up for it? And how about @redheadpei?

One day I want to hear all about your growing up years. As a storyteller, I am fascinated by such things. :-)

Oh I got a good one, when I see you in Gatlinburg, ask me about my standing rock story :P

Thanks @enginewitty for sharing this. I always liked that show ‘Last Of The Mohicans.’ @saffisara also tagged me just before I went over to Nova Scotia to my sister’s for nephew’s convocation. I’ve been there a few days and just returned. Will get caught up soon.

Look forward to it hun!
