Today’s guest couldn’t wait to get started, which is good!!!
The show always flows better when the guests are very talkative, obviously, and today was a pleasure.
The show started with Ed addressing a back and forth he had with Logan Sama. The basic premise was that he didn’t enjoy Ed’s opinions on a particular episode of the boiler room series. Artists and creatives alike need to understand that not everyone will or even has to like your music or whatever it is you have created.
Someone will always have something to say about it.
To conclude, Ed would like to say he didn’t mean to come across as a “pagan” (his words not ours) as he is a fan of the grime scene and his opinion was mainly because he wants to see nothing but good things happen for the culture.
Todays guest is Shakira and Sarah, who sound weirdly alike… No, seriously, they sound almost exactly the same but that’s because they are two bubbly characters. Shakira writes a blog where she shares life experiences in the hope of empowering women and helping them with issues they may face on a day to day basis. We have seen first hand the reactions of some women after reading Shakira’s blog and it seems to have set the readers free. It’s made them comfortable to share their own problems and possibly get over any lingering feelings that come along with their life troubles.
We understand even as men that it is hard to share certain problems and we also appreciate how easy it is to feel like life is suffocating you.
We spoke about the negative feedback that was recieved also because some people believe that Shakira was exploiting her readers. This isn’t true as Shakira was just trying to inspire women to overcome their problems by sharing some of her own. But again at the end of the day not everyone has to like what you’re doing and not everyone will enjoy what you have created. If you feel like what you’re doing has meaning, or you and a few people are benefiting from the content you create… don’t stop!!!
No matter where you go, there will be at least one person that doesn’t like your work for whatever the reason.
It’s fine. Not everyone is the same.
We spoke about social media giving everyone a voice and how maybe not everyone should have that voice because many choose not to use it properly. We believe social media is a platform to make things happen, connect with people and also share your opinions but we can admit we are biased because this is how The OP Show is allowed to bring these people together. We try and use social networks to our advantage.
