All about Texas

texas road

If you have never been to Texas. It"s not like any other state.Living in Texas and not being able to relate at all to deep culture. It is very interesting and you have to respect how Texas was formed. When People hear I"m from Texas – I get stereo typed into a ‘cowboy" or a ‘good ol" boy". I"m far from that.

There are so many icons or things that remind you of only Texas: Long horn cow, cowboy boots, cowboys, the Alamo, Cow hide, Ronald Reagan.

Texas has mystique and a vibe all on its own.  Here is a great video to sum up Texas. We are not all cowboys. If you want to know more about Texas History my suggestion is to visit a my favorite museum is Texas Memorial Museum.
This video is great – it really goes into the history of Texas. Which has alot to do with Texas current culture and how Texas is what it is today. Texas is proud and you can tell by the people that have lived here for generations.

I did not shoot this video. This is my type of style of shooting. Imagine all the long days out on the range hauling equiptment and setting up camera and sound.

 

 

Great song to wake up to

 

 

“Sleep Through The Static"

by Jack Johnson

Trouble travels fast
When you"re specially designed for crash testing
Or wearing wool sunglasses in the afternoon
Come on and tell us what you"re trying to prove
Because it"s a battle when you dabble in war
You store it up, unleash it, then you piece it together
Whether the storm drain running rampant just stamp it
And send it to somebody who"s pretending to careJust cash in your blanks for little toy tanks
Learn how to use them, then abuse them and choose them
Over conversations relationships are overrated
“I hated everyone" said the sunAnd so I will cook all your books
You"re too good looking and mistooken
You could watch it instead
From the comfort of your burning beds
…Or you can sleep through the static

Who needs sleep when we"ve got love?
Who needs keys when we"ve got clubs?
Who needs please when we"ve got guns?
Who needs peace when we"ve gone above
But beyond where we should have gone?
We went beyond where we should have gone

Stuck between channels my thoughts all quit
I thought about them too much, allowed them to touch
The feelings that rained down on the plains all dried and cracked
Waiting for things that never came

Shock and awful thing to make somebody think
That they have to choose pushing for peace supporting the troops
And either you"re weak or you"ll use brut force-feed the truth
The truth is we say not as we do

We say anytime, anywhere, just show your teeth and strike the fear
Of god wears camouflage, cries at night and drives a dodge
Pick up the beat and stop hogging the feast
That"s no way to treat an enemy

Well mighty mighty appetite
We just eat "em up and keep on driving
Freedom can be freezing take a picture from the pretty side
Mind your manners wave your banners
What a wonderful world that this angle can see

But who needs to see what we"ve done?
Who needs please when we"ve got guns?
Who needs keys when we"ve got clubs?
Who needs peace when we"ve gone above
But beyond where we should have gone?
Beyond where we should have gone
We went beyond where we should have gone
Beyond where we should have gone
