2018, chapter 24: ‘Heathens’ by Twenty One Pilots (nr. 136)

It took a little convincing, but a movement began. A movement that wanted nothing to do with society and its priorities. No attachment, financial or romantic, allowed. That’s how you get swallowed and happily follow whatever rules society sets up.

That sort of movement attracts weird types. People who don’t just want to be left alone by society, but to hurt it like it abused them. And over time these people would gain enough foothold to change the movement to an actual destructive force. They call themselves heathens.

A new recruit has shown interest. The person introducing them to the movement isn’t convinced that they fit in. The recruit is too timid and has trouble trusting these strange types. So the introducer warns them to take it slow, don’t make any sudden moves and wait for people to ask them, who told them about this place.

And people here are scary. Murderers and psychopaths work side by side. And sometimes love happens, but it gets docked away in a room in the mind. Whatever needs you have, you have people around to take care of.

Newcomers are less welcome now. It’s said that they have a different smell. Some even claim that they can smell if their intentions are good or bad.

The introducer has some doubts that the new recruit can handle it. But when the new recruit joins on a mission, against their recommendation, and is able to stay calm even when it goes sideways, and the authorities are outside, ready to bust them, the introducer has to admit, that it looks like the recruit is one of them.

2018, chapter 23: ‘Wild Things’ by Alessia Cara (nr. 135)

Two girls have stopped following the rules of society They call themselves by the nicknames Chainsmoker and Little Mix.

Their ideals are these:

1: They don’t want to answer to anyone. Concretely, they will not work, because then their lives would revolve around promotions and making money. Making money should never be a goal in and of itself. They’re not opposed to having money, just obtaining it in any way that supports the system.

2: No romantic attachments. The whole system hinges on people becoming families, trapping them, so now they have to grow up, get a job and make money, so their children can also grow up and do the same thing, essentially making the point of existence to create more existence. And in service of this, people seek out attachment and get hurt when that attachment ends, lick their wounds and try again, simply because they’re supposed to. Loose sex, again, is fine, just don’t let them become important to you.

The two girls put varying importance on the different ideals. Thus Chainsmoker finds less issue with her budding relationship. Instead, she sees a possibility to spread their ideals. She has found that her lover listens with interest when Chainsmoker talks about how she lives. She and Little Mix has a potential movement here. They could convince more people and be pioneers.

But first, she has to sit down with Little Mix and convince her.

This turns out to be a tough sell. Little Mix is worried. This is risky. Chainsmoker tries to calm her down by saying that it’s not like they’ll attempt to convince everyone, just the ones that seem interested. They’ll be alright. They can be wild rather than walk on eggshells.

102: ‘Thrift Shop’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz

Will and Fergie both have more money than they need and spend it on going out to bars and clubsThey both have expensive lifestyles.

They come regularly to the same club. A guy named Macklemore also comes there regularly. And he is not impressed by their money. He buys everything from a thrift shop, in varying degrees of quality. But he still walks into the club confidently, wearing all pink, except for his gator shoes and a slightly smelly leopard mink, and walks up next to Fergie. He’s proud of his frugality. He dresses granddad style and looks incredible doing it.

Fergie laughs at and mocks him.

95: ‘That’s What I Like’ by Bruno Mars

Will has come into money. Lots of money. And now he wants to spend it on Taylor, his girlfriend. Anything she wants. And if she doesn’t know what to ask for, he has suggestions:

Coming to his recently acquired condo in Manhattan
Or renting a beach house in Miami
lobster tail for dinner
Or his new assistant, Julio, can get her scampi
money
a ride in his new Cadillac
Gold jewelry
strawberry champagne
Silk sheets
white diamonds
trips to Puerto Rico
shopping sprees in Paris

Whatever she wants, it’s hers. And he’ll enjoy giving it to her. He likes to see her smile and promises she will never have a reason not to anymore.

72: ‘Irreplaceable’Beyonce

Relationships are difficult, and money cannot stop trouble from occurring.

In the relationship of Nicki and Chainz, it came in the form of cheating. Nicky sees Chainz drive around with another woman and kicks him out, making sure to take everything that legally belongs to her, including his car.  Chainz becomes angry and shouts at her that she’ll never find someone like him. Nicki laughs this off and says, she already has.

71: ‘Beez in the Trap’ by Nicki Minaj Ft. 2 Chainz

Some find value in religion. Others in meaningless.

Nicki and Chainz find value in money. They are in a relationship.

They are ruthless in getting it, doing whatever it takes, wherever they need to be to get it. At the moment, this is selling drugs and acting as pimps. Chainz also raps.

They are careless spending it because they have so much of it. They smoke and drink a lot.

This way of living does not give them many fans. Quite the opposite really. But people aren’t vocal about this because this tends to end badly for them. Nicki is quite violent and likes to beat people up herself.
