A Bite Outta Apple’s Monopoly… By Myron Christian

Has everyone in the US forgotten about antitrust laws? Was the life work, the professional haterism by Roosevelt and Taft all in vain? The very essence of the antitrust platform from which it was formulated, and the government agency set to regulate it, has been somehow overlooked by the boys at Apple. What happened to unreasonable exclusionary practices that serve to entrench or create monopoly power being deemed unlawful?

The haters that once went after so many other companies by suing them have gone soft. Are the good old boys just plain tired of “fighting the good fight?” It was the grand hater Senator John Sherman that said,”If we will not endure a king a political power we should not endure a king over the production, transportation, and sale of any of the necessaries of life.” To a certain extent, I have a little hater in me too. Therefore, I am inclined to agree in parts. I hate the fact that I received 30 emails from friends I havent heard from in years over a phone. Namely the omnipotent Iphone– Woo-py!!! They have given us what? A phone that I saw in Japan 2 years ago?

Americans compose the greater whole of the lot of suckers. We were once steamrolled with the McDonaldization of America and it took us only 20 years to realize it. Most silly Americans actually believe that Andy —Wharholed the world – lol. yeah right! So, here we are again with the Ipod. Being pushed into our vulnerable lives like dare commercials in the 90’s with that teenage dealer scouting at the playground. You know the one- he is like “hey kid, you like to flyyy.” lol Does anyone care that the iphone will be released exclusively to Cingular? That Steve Jobs probably “became” the majority shareholder? Pimps refer to this maneuver as a DU-LO (save to say, your getting fucked) Countrymen, I present to you technology that will bring down the iphone and other mediocre apple peripherals. It is called Perceptive Pixel technology and this is absolutely amazing…

“Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” by Myron Christian


I wanted to share this with you all… this is some of my new work done
in Kenya last month. The story is called Midnight in the Garden of Good
and Evil.



It basically is the age-old story of man’s wanton desire to be KING
at any cost. Living in New York City, it becomes really easy to fall
into that “money is the root of happiness/ money motivated” trap.

If you ever wonder why I have the look of melancholy on the 27th, its because I am reminded that rent is due on the 1st.


We often forget that the hours we put into these corporations to help
fuel our nation’s thriving economy, are also the hours that we take
from our friends and families. And ourselves. In other countries people work
to live
, while we in the Big Apple live to work.



I am not saying that it is bad to be passionate about something. But growing up in places like Sierra Leone and Washington D.C. has shown me that the pursuit of money, for each individual, has its own cost.



As Rich’s daughter, 2 year old Nyatche, would sing from James Brown, “paid the cost, to be the boss.” Thank you for taking the time to view my work.


Be Blessed,

House of Wonders – by Myron Christian

Born Leon Davidovich Trotsky born Lev Davidovich Bronstein, was a Bolshevik revolutionary and Marxist theorist. He was an influential politician in the early days of the Soviet Union, first as People’s Commissar for Foreign Affairs and later as the founder and commander of the Red Army and People’s Commissar of War. He was also a founding member of the Politburo.

Following a power struggle with Joseph Stalin in the 1920s, Trotsky was expelled from the Communist Party and deported from the Soviet Union. He was eventually assassinated in Mexico by Ramón Mercader, a Soviet agent, with an ice axe.[1] Trotsky’s ideas form the basis of Trotskyism, his variation of Communist theory, and Trotskyism remains a major school of Marxist thought that is opposed to the theories of Stalinism and Maoism.

How supremely interesting that we would find this book in the Zanzibari, Tanzanian building, the House of Wonders. The House of Wonders is a very large square-shaped building, with several stories, surrounded by tiers of pillars and balconies, and topped by a large clock tower. It was built in 1883 as a ceremonial palace for Sultan Barghash and was the first in Zanzibar to have electric light and an electric lift. Not surprisingly, when it was built, the local people called it Beit el Ajaib, meaning the House of Wonders.

Today, it is still one of the largest buildings in Zanzibar, and there are plans to open it as the National Museum.Very odd to findTrotsky’s book, Permanent Revolution, hidden away amongst others of its kind in this building… in this country of Moslem fundamentalists. For my brethren who take freedom of speech for granted, this buds for you!This is a portrait of Salim Juma, the first rasta Moslem I had ever met. But as luck would have it, he would not be the last. I was able to tag along with his gang of ruffians for a couple days and take some cool shots of the group members.

And no we didnt break in there!!! We just gave it a D.C. push.

“East Africa” by Myron Christian

All men are corrupted by ambition. The most basic form of this is control. Control over your environment or over another individual. As necessity is the mother of all invention, then it follows that ideas are what fuel this innovation.

Ideas are fascinating because at their inner most core, be you a naturalist or not, they are valuable. They promote progression and evolution is Mother Love’s sole purpose for us. But at their most primitive level they are useless. They only take effect and have power when they are distributed through an organism onto its superorganism. In our case that would be society. Meaning until others believe it then you cannot proselytize.

Many ideas are frequently Christmas wrapped in nice packaging as selfless idealism or
ascetic dedication to a cause. Being in East Africa, it is hard not to imagine how many greedy men have pillaged and plundered this land for its natural resources in the sake of being dedicated “idealist to their cause.” With everyday advancements in modern life some say we grow closer to the Light. Others argue that we are further from the Truth. An inescapable truth that Africa leaves you with is that we are as expendable as the wildebeest or the small ant.We are born to die.

It is the individuals that can proliferate, upload, and expand their ideas the most efficiently that will be exalted, whilst those that oppose them will be eliminated. Bob said it best with “many more will have to suffer, many more will have to die.” The land has a soul of its own. A tremendous entity with its own aura leaving you with a bittersweet
taste in your mouth. Not to cannibalize technology, but it has its pros and cons like anything else.
