THANK YOU ALL!!!
How does T$F live their lives?
Just to breathe is enough for us to always be happy.
Just to be alive is enough.
We don’t need knowledge or great philosophical concepts.
We don’t need the acceptance of others.
We express our own divinity by being alive and with our love.
Love is not about concepts, love is about action.
Love in action can only produce happiness.
We become one with what we are doing, and it’s a supreme pleasure.
Just expressing ourselves leads the Status Faction to ecstasy because we are creating.
This is our art, the art of living.
We don’t need to know or prove anything.
Just to be, to take a risk and enjoy life, is all that matters.
This is life as an art.
Cocaine is the second most popular illegal recreational drug in the U.S.A. (behind marijuana),
and the U.S.A. is the world’s largest consumer of it.
Speaking very simply, Rick James famously said “Cocaine is a hell of a drug.”
It’s actually a FUCK of a drug. The $tatus Faction does not endorse the use of blow,
in fact— there is little we ever DO endorse. We are far from role models.
We hold our individual addictions and various collective ones,
but we are addicted to life and our artwork beyond any substance.
Everyone has fuckin problems. Whomever is reading this must have a SHIT LOAD!!! Ha!
If you’ve read our blog post that appeared right before this one, you already know T$F couldn’t care less what your opinion is. If you’re lucky enough to ever meet Mr. Phylo, he may even suggest you pucker up and kiss his ass!!!
We are strong believers that everything happens for a reason.
YOU WILL PAY FOR EVERYTHING IN LIFE. You either pay NOW or you pay LATER.
There is no escape from that, especially in the great and sprawling city of Los Angeles.
Many people in L.A. get super hooked on Cocaine aka “Nose Whiskey” aka “Devil’s Dandruff” aka “Booger Sugar” aka “Barry White.” That’s not at all weird. The weird part is; after their lives self-destruct, and they move back home to their respective state, they blame Los Angeles for their problems. “Oh L.A. is fucked up, the place sucks and everyone is fake!”
Wake up fool– YOU ARE FAKE AND NOW ALSO POOR!
You love to make excuses, and then play the victim role, dontcha?
Control yourself asshole! MIND OVER MATTER!!!
If you’ve never tried cocaine, GOOD, but who the fuck are you? The Mayor? The President?
If you want to act judgemental, “Get over yourself.”
If you have ever read our BIO (click it), the first sentence reads:
“Standing in the midst of it all, neither higher nor lower, with all those who are working and struggling is The $tatus Faction (T$F). Change itself is the very basis for our continuity as people.”
Calm down! Stop talking so damn much! Stop trying so hard! Try and just be yourself for once.
If you’re just a regular-ass person, standing in the middle of everybody, we’ll be great friends.
