Barbie Instagram Account Shows Us How Fake We Can All Be On Social Media

Published

on

We live in a world dominated by social media. Many of us, myself included at times, cannot go more than a couple of hours without logging in to at least one of the major social media platforms. Whether it be perusing Facebook’s newsfeed, seeing what’s trending on Twitter, or liking the latest photos posted by those that we follow on Instagram, we’re hooked.

We’re hooked to the point that a good portion of what we tend to post has become so cliché and expected that not much variety still exists. From selfies to party shots to pictures with our grandparents, we all seem to be posting relatively the same thing, day in and day out.

In an attempt to poke fun at the online similarities that so many of us share, an anonymous wedding photographer from Portland, Oregon started an Instagram account unlike any other. Operating under the name Socality Barbie the account features all of the cliché pictures we love to post, but with a Barbie doll in our place.

Check out some of the pictures below, or the full gallery on Socality Barbie’s Instagram:

The apparent message behind this Instagram account reminds me of the infamous quote, “You were born original. Don’t die a copy.” We certainly are all unique from one another, yet when it comes to social media we love to make ourselves seem as interesting as possible. In doing so,  however, we end up becoming more like everyone else.

Because we can, many of us strive to use the online world to create a perfected version of ourself. We formulate witty statuses, stage pictures, and add whatever filters necessary to make that snapshot of our life seem perfect. When the truth is, it’s what goes on in between those posed pictures and statuses that truly shows who we are, and who that is, is both unique and worthy of being celebrated.

As an occasionally cliché social media user myself, I was happy to stumble upon this Instagram account and am grateful for the message it delivers. What are your thoughts on the pictures? Are they making you re-think how you use social media? Or do they simply just make you laugh? Let us know via the comment section below.

Our Discussion About Dr. Fauci Telling People To Wear Goggles To Protect Against COVID-19

Published

on

Joe, Ruby and I recently sat down for our weekly show, “The Takeaway” to discuss Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recent recommendation that all people should be wearing goggles as well as a mask in order to protect themselves against COVID-19. As most of you reading this will know, mask mandates in public settings have caused quite a controversy, especially in Canada and in the United States. Well known and reputable doctors and scientists seem to be the catalyst, having brought a lot of attention to themselves by sharing their expert opinions and research. Today, however, we are living in a very different environment as information that contradicts what’s told to us by our federal health regulatory agencies is now deleted, blocked, and censored from social media platforms and Google searchers.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, based on what I have been seeing and from our own experience here at Collective Evolution, we are living in a time where a digital authoritarian Orwellian fact-checker is patrolling the internet and censoring information, deeming it as “false” when in many cases, the information doesn’t appear to be false at all. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of “fake news” out there, but should people not have the right to examine information and determine for themselves what is, and what isn’t instead of having someone else do it for them?

In the episode below we share our opinions and talk about where we see things going within the next few months. It’s a two part episode, in the second part we talk about an interesting document within the CIA’s electronic reading dealing with the affect human intention can have on physical material systems. If you’re interested in that, you can access it on CETV, here.  CETV is a platform we created to combat the censorship we are currently experiencing, as many  of you probably already know of by now.

Woody Harrelson Shares A Powerful Video: ‘Thoughts From Within’ He Calls It

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Woody Harrelson shares some spoken word with a deep message.

  • Reflect On:

    How do you view our current world? Does it truly resonate with you? Is it something you want to support? If you could put your energy into a world of thriving abundance, would you? Then why so much energy into the way things are?

I sit here today having been reminded of a Woody Harrelson video after watching a movie he acted in. I recalled the first time I saw this video. It was one of the first realizations I had, about 9 years ago, that many celebrities also go through life with trials and tribulations of the average person. Perhaps not in all ways, but certainly in many. This is an obvious thought of course, but sometimes not all that common.

When I saw this video, I remember thinking, wow, I love what he is sharing, and coming from his place of influence this truly has a powerful message. This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within.

In the video Woddy lays out a spoken word masterpiece that touches on all of the main aspects of our current society. If you truly take the time to listen, there is much to reflect on. And of course, there is an inspiring side of it all too.

This one is a bit of a throw back, but it’s a good one. Enjoy it!

Josh Radnor From How I Met Your Mother Just Started A Conscious Band with Ben Lee

Published

on

You might be here because you are a fan of the hit TV show, How I Met Your Mother, or maybe you have fond memories of blasting “Catch My Disease” in your car on a hot summer day. Whatever the reason may be, you are about to discover a lesser-known side to actor-writer-director Josh Radnor and Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee—who now form the musical duo Radnor & Lee.

In this very first episode of Uplifted Life’s new Redefining Success Podcast, Kosta Stoyanoff and I had the privilege of having a conversation with both of them over Skype only a few days before they left for their Brazil tour. We talked about their new musical venture, the effects of having achieved success and fame at a young age, what true success ought to be, spirituality, meditation, self-development and more! Playing the hosts was definitely out of our comfort zones, but we are glad we did it and were able to extract some valuable insights from these two amazing human beings.

There is a rumor circulating that they are a religious born again band because they don’t shy away from using words like word God in their lyrics. The truth is that they do not subscribe to any particular label and are simply fascinated by life’s bigger questions. In our 30-minute conversation with them, we found them to be incredibly grounded, intelligent and wise individuals who simply strive to get back to the basics of what really matters in life and care about becoming the best and most compassionate version of themselves. It was awesome to chat with two public figures who choose to use their influence to spread a positive and conscious message through their art!

Our intention with the Redefining Success Podcast is to collect gems of wisdom from individuals who see beyond our culture’s materialistic idea of success and have discovered a more fulfilling, whole and healthy view of what it means to lead a truly successful life. We believe that doing our part in helping rewrite the cultural story surrounding success can inspire a positive change in how we lead our lives—from our relationships to the way we do business.

Hope you enjoy the conversation and make sure to share it to inspire others!
