(Quick PSA To Address A Seriously Growing Problem)
Yes, in fact I see it everyday, from kids to adults. Perhaps adults who've been bullied since kids, and although physical damage can be severe in some cases the mental and physcological damage done is far more traumatizing. Too many times the victim ends up living a life or leading a lifestyle they never wanted to, but rather forced to do so in order to please others. In worse cases its lead to suicide, and murders. I constantly tell people to Stand Up, Fight Back, or even Intervene myself (because) most bullies aren't as tough as they seem, they just have some type of power(strength,finances,social) that causes the victim to submit to their will. I for one refuse to stand for it, or stand aside and watch others be victimized, in fact I offer my help, in the form of journalism.
This movie "Beware the Gonzo" is not only an excellent movie, but gives you perfect examples of bullying, its effects, and how to Fight Back! If you haven't seen it I highly recommend that you do. OTN from here on out I vow to share at least one story/blog a week Dedicated to someone being bullied, in attempts of helping them out of their situation. I'll also be celebrating those that have better'd their situation. I ask that any/everyone that reads this be on the lookout for bullying, and if you can't help then tell someone who can, or contact me and maybe we could get them the help they need. Believe me "Bullying" is no longer a simple "kiddy" matter, people are seriously being hurt, all the time, lets End It, Or At least Try,
Jon-Oh, what we have here is your typical Clark Kent; Regular Joe Schmoe to the public, but actually supernatural in disguise. He never let go of the idea "you can do anything you put your mind to", and this idea fostered into a religious belief. He channeled all of this energy into music as this outlet was introduced to him as a child at the age of nine, or ten. Watching his older relatives(brother, cousins) go through the music recording process fascinated him, and made him want nothing more than to be a part of it. Jon-Oh started writing songs, with big dreams that he never woke up from.
Drawing inspirations from his everyday life, Jon-Oh created songs that he felt were good, and he could truly relate too, and it wasn't long before others felt him too. Throughout school Jon-Oh built a buzz/name amongst his peers, as a talented rapper. They would always encourage him, and all of this positive energy propelled him to join forces with a close cousin of his(Nano, he'll be explained further later), and start development on a recording studio. By the time he was twenty he'd have a pretty impressive recording studio. Here he would spend hundreds of hours perfecting, and honing his skill. Creating song, after song, listening for imperfections, and critiquing himself.
When he felt comfortable enough Jon-Oh released eps, and collaborations which he passed out around town to acquire a larger "buzz." Things were going good when Jon-Oh hit his first of several potholes on his road to success. Although his music was good, it wasn't bringing in any money, or the kind he felt was necessary to run his "operation", so he found other ways. Through several run-ins with the law, and some pure misfortune, Jon-Oh lost a year's worth of time, and music, but that wasn't enough to stop him.
Realizing the error of his ways, Jon-Oh first found himself some legitimate ways to gain income, and got right back in the studio, with a harder work ethic, and a Lamborghini drive. Instead of trying to remake, and recover lost material, Jon-Oh started off fresh with fresh new energy, and inspirations. With a style that only could be described as "raw" Jon-Oh's peers heard the new material and exclaimed that he should title the album "No Condom". He took the idea and ran with it.
