MY HERO, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS by Adam Cerny

MY HERO, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS by Adam Cerny

Who is your hero? Why?

My nickname has always been Peter Pan because of my youthful aura. Appearance. It should be Edward Scissorhands. That nickname is accurate for so many people in this world. I’d like to say the majority, but, it’s the minority. I don’t think I’m alone at all in feeling like Edward Scissorhands at times. Most times. All the time. Why Edward, though? He isn’t a hero, after all.

All I want to do is touch people because I love them or care for them. Yet, when I touch them, all I can do is slice them up. Like Edward, yes? Damage is visible. I did it. It’s amazingly sad for me to watch Edward endure this pain. In the end, we bruise + feel pain as well. Imagine. Craving to love other people, and knowing that with every loving touch, you are cutting them.

Edward wasn’t designed properly. It wasn’t his doing. He didn’t realize or comprehend the events that transpired with his Creator. It was all out of young, innocent earnest. Edward wasn’t given the opportunity to have the design of excellence. Not excellence as some of us, on the collective, might define it. Certainly not the definition of excellence the townspeople in this story subscribed to.

I know that life is not fair. I know that no one owes anyone anything. Tangible or intangible. I understand these basic principles. I know many more, their etymology, etc. I’m not ignorant to this. People tout me with these overused + regurgitated ways of justifying evil behavior. I have a visceral reaction. I want to scream + smash my head into a million pieces. When I’ve found that I can’t put myself back together, I’d like to say, “Thank you. Because, I hadn’t thought of that, already. Morons.”

Try telling Edward Scissorhands that no one owed him their headspace. Attempt to tell Edward the people of the town didn't understand empathy + tolerance. Try telling Edward that people enjoyed the feeling of hating him. The mere feeling of hatred! They relished it. Some of them achieved orgasm through the feeling of hatred. This was a sport among the town; to scrutinize Edward like a pariah.

Let’s set Edward up. Let’s put him in a weak position where we know he will lose. We can all enjoy hating him for making a mistake he didn’t even know he was making. Let’s fuck, to the rhythm of his pain. Let us revel, in hating him for wanting to love people. Let’s all throw an infant in a pool. We can laugh. The infant cannot swim and it will drown. This isn’t too far from the human behavior I witness every day. A la, gas lighting.

After all, love doesn’t exist. Right? That school of thought also fits into the myriad of basic principles. Edward doesn’t know that. Since we had to learn it the hard way, why would we want someone else to avoid that pain? No. Let’s re-inflict. Let’s repurpose that pain into hatred and lay it upon Edward. Let’s continue the evil chain + cycle that we call “normal”. Let us then be hard-pressed to find people who question the presence of evil in this world.

All Edward wanted was to love + make others happy. He was youthful + hopeful in that sense, despite his obvious handicap. Yes, Edward was discernibly handicapped. He was socially awkward, mute + invisible. There was a charm to him, though. He inhabited this youthful folly that is frustrating to watch. I want him to be fit for the real world he’s entered. I want him to have all the tools in his box that he’ll need to fend off the people who will inevitably destroy him.

You see, Edward came from a different world altogether. He was excited to acclimate to this new way of living + follow a new set of rules. It was brave of him. Approaching this new world. Had I been able to warn him to never leave his world, I would have. And that, right there; the mere struggle of knowing + not being able to change it. That is where the pain lives. For me, too.

Things did not end well for Edward. One person understood him. One. But, to be direct, I’m surprised he even gained one person in that town who knew how to empathize. How to feel what he was feeling. Not to fake it, but to adopt it. Not to pull from their own experiences, but to adapt to his experience, free of prejudice. This one person; she was the only person in the town who embodied true empathy.

I imagine what that isolation must’ve felt like for her. How lonely it must’ve been for her as well in life. To live among such rudimentary people. To be spoken at all day, rather than, spoken to. Knowing deep down how everyone felt. Without this girl in the story, Edward’s inevitable demise would’ve commenced much sooner.

You see, she herself possessed this same youthful innocence. Hers hid beneath layers + years + stacks of societal conditioning. Her access to it allowed a similar perception of vision as Edward Scissorhands. To see the world with possibility. Neither good nor bad, mind you. Simply, open. Like a child. To dream. Most of the people who I observe have forgotten that they even had dreams to begin with! It’s that tragic, in real life.

The consummation of this story is not one of happiness. Not happiness, as we define it. The hero doesn’t win in real life. Remember? Edward, after all, was no hero. He was emotional + tormented by his paradoxical ways of expressing love. He was not a hero of any sorts. There are villains in this story, yet. Villains: everyone but Edward Scissorhands + his female confidante. This new world Edward entered into was a world of villains + rogues. That is the real plot twist of this whole story. It went over the heads of most everyone.

What should we say of regret? Should Edward regret the abandon of his safe palace in search of a community? In search of love? I do not know the answer, and that is why I asked. What is to say of regret in this story? This mind-fuck is woven into the fibers of the storyline from beginning to end.

The story of Edward Scissorhands is a fable. It’s a self-reflection. A mirror. So, I ask you, what would your life be like if you had scissors for hands? How much is your love worth? Hmm? How much is each of your fingers worth? You can’t attach a number to these things, but you can attach pain imagined from their absence. Take that pain, multiply it by 100. Only then will one be in the neighborhood of understanding. Understanding what Edward accepted as commonplace, every day. With a smile. With hope. Retaining his youthful view of the world.

Can we say the same for ourselves? Can we love the beautiful + ugly parts of us? The deepest, darkest, sickest parts? There’s a propensity and an inevitability, for people to lack the tools needed to practice empathy. In turn, it’s okay to hurt people when we say it’s okay. It’s open season, all us going in at it any way we see fit.

Should we have our bluff called out or made to face up to our faults, we’ve invented the “block button”. We are a society of ghosters; ghosts. Running away from owning up to our mistakes has never been easier. Being a coward has never been simpler. We are more robot than human, and Edward was more human than us.

While Edward is no hero, he is braver than any of us. He has more courage than we’ll ever know, or ever care to know. Because, as the people of the town who destroyed him did, most of us will bury our heads in the sand. It’s those who withstand the storm who have the real glory. To stand life in the face of what it is. To be a magician of our ability to create space for tolerance + love in a world void of producing it, naturally... that’s a hero.

Who is your hero? Why?

ADAM'S TRANSFORMATION: PART TWO by Adam Cerny

ADAM'S TRANSFORMATION: PART TWO by Adam Cerny


trans·for·ma·tion
*Based on a true story. Or, is it?*

**PART ONE can be viewed HERE http://bit.ly/2x6KJqp**

This is the SEQUEL to the character of Adam's transformation story. When we left Adam, there had been a glitch in his transformation process. The plan was not executed according to the design. This error left Adam to fend for himself. Ultimately, this forced Adam to transform on his own accord.

I touched on a topic in PART ONE surrounding the collective's need to fix other people. My theory is that one cannot transform anything but themselves first. The self is paramount. The vogue psychology "self-love" movement has set people in several directions searching for this love. No one can precisely define what "self-love" really is. We have an idea, yes. If I were to ask you, "What can I actionably do right now to implement self-love into my life so I believe it 100%?", you might just stand there and not say a word. Uh-oh. Oops. Follow me with this. I'm finding that we are preaching our truths without anything substantial to show for it.

Be sure to TASTE your words BEFORE you spit them out. When one works hard in silence, it's the noise that can be its success. I am going to be amazingly honest with you, and you might not want to hear this. When one door closes, another door does not necessarily open. Sometimes if it doesn't open, it's not your door. Period. End of story. Where does that leave you?

With yourself. Only yourself. I can promise you that everyone in your life will leave you or die one day. This is a painstakingly inevitable truth. In tandem, this fact opens the doors to yourself. Get to know yourself. Investigate every inch of your soul and interrogate your body. You have yourself for a very long time; no one else.

These lofty goals that society comes up with to better our world are incredibly self-serving. They are more an act of show than of integrity. Hence the reason why we haven't reached the finish line on these goals. How can anyone expect to get to B from A when the ship (themselves) they're sailing in has never been inspected? Inspect yourselves, please. We should be trying to better ourselves. The rest will follow. Period.

The character of Adam has undergone his transformation, left to his own defenses. He found that he likes himself quite a bit. He recognizes his challenges, strengths, truths, and lies. He celebrates his life, even at a young age. By continually aiming to transform himself, this causes a ripple effect in everything he touches. This is the progress I speak of when society dreams up lofty goals.

I challenge all of you to make a list of five things you like about yourself. That simple. Just write down five things and leave the paper somewhere. Come back to it. Answer it when it calls. Add to it. I did this for myself.

Let's break this down in relation to myself...not the character of Adam. I'm an actor. THREAT ONE. I'm a singer. THREAT TWO. I'm a dancer. THREAT THREE. I'm an instrumentalist. THREAT FOUR. I choreograph + curate. THREAT FIVE. Therefore, I am a quintuple threat. A Penta-tastic combination of talent. That makes ME happy. Why? Because I said so. PERIOD.

ADAM'S TRANSFORMATION: PART ONE by ADAM CERNY

ADAM'S TRANSFORMATION: PART ONE by Adam Cerny


trans·for·ma·tion
*Based on a true story. Or, is it?*

As German-American poet, Charles Bukowski, stated, "We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing."

Part one of a two-part series, part one explores the transformation process. The character of Adam is someone I relate to. I used to believe that I could change the world and make it a better place. Art, taking a stance, fighting for a cause, raising awareness. Giving myself over to other people. My belief had such fervor that I'd often lose myself in this conquest. We are a blip on the radar of the Universe. The Moon has more influence over the world than any one person or group of individuals. I came to realize that this collective goal we share is an utter waste of our time. We see this same scenario play out in our society. "Let's help everyone but ourselves."

We allow trivialities to shrink us. We grant permission to ourselves to run from nothing. We become spectral. Lost to ourselves. We create ghosts that roam around in our minds, and yes, it is haunting. Like Adam, I now believe that one cannot change the world. While it's a provocative and elitist goal, I can't find it workable. So, I want to mirror a new goal that plays out through the character of Adam. "I want to change myself." Now, that statement holds more weight. It's workable. It's a start.

I will always believe that humanity, as a collective, has the potential to shift the grid. Due to societal conditioning, I can't see this ever coming to fruition, though. Only if we all go back to home base and redesign our blueprint. If all were to do this, we could then branch out together. This is why I've separated my work into Part One and Part Two. Day and Night. Light and Dark. Anima and Animus. Yin and Yang. If we don't have a point of contrast to recognize, then how will we ever know how to transform?

This film only scratches the surface of what's available to us. Sometimes, we are the enemy. Our own enemy. Yet, rarely, are we ever our own best friend or lover. We nurture our enemies more than our comrades. The goal is not to learn, but to unlearn. Strip ourselves bare for ourselves to look at and examine. Only then can real change begin.

ADAM'S VISUAL PSYCHEDELIC TRIP: DIRECTOR'S CUT by Adam Cerny

ADAM'S VISUAL PSYCHEDELIC TRIP: Director's Cut

By Adam Cerny

**DISCLAIMER** I do NOT advocate the use of harmful substances. At all. Ever. But, if you wanted to be in an altered state of consciousness when viewing this video, I'd recommend it. An herb that is grown from Mother Earth, particularly.

Director's Cut!? Yes. This was ALMOST never released. True story: this film was ALMOST completely scrapped so it would never see the light of day. Why? The film wasn't landing the way I had envisioned it. I never want to make a piece of art without attempting to show a facet of who I am. After "version 4" of this film, I finally found where it resonated in my soul.

I didn't want to make a film where I was dancing around, half naked, to pop music, without any real substance to support it. I did, yet, want to tell a story. Here's a nutshell version of that story: I'm a dancer. A singer. An actor. A writer. A poet. A photographer. So much ethereal energy; where do I channel it? My imagination. Your imagination. There is a collective consciousness that I'd like to see elevated. After all, dreams are a form of hallucination.

This film is an audio + visual experience. Instructions: put in your ear buds, go to a quiet, dark place and zone out. I've put all the necessary auditory and visual catalysts where they need to be. Don't focus on my body. I only wear little clothing because I want the world to see that the person doing the dancing on film...that person is ME. ONLY ME. That is MY BODY communicating emotion, strength, tone, inflection, and story.

ADAM'S DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS by ADAM CERNY

ADAM'S DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS by Adam Cerny

What better way to take you "behind-the-scenes" of my life than to tell you EVERYTHING? I'm going to spill all my DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS. Check out my rapid-fire "q+a", and learn about the real me. Not the Adam you see on social media. Not even the Adam you see on stage or after the show. This is the real Adam. Me.

I have an excellent relationship with the real world, but I live in fantasy. Here's where things can get tricky for me. I'm often caught in a conflict of my authenticity, my need to express imagination, and searching for some inner meaning in it all to validate my efforts. I have a terribly sardonic sense of humor, and that offends some people. Please know that it is never my intention to step on anyone's moral compass or belief system.

I'll always draw to the dark. Yet, unlike the majority of people in my circle, I like to shine a light on the darkness. Expose it. That's where the real fun begins. So - this is me. For you.
