Maestro Knows – Special Edition (Tim “LIVEWIRE” Shieff)

May 10, 2011   Posted by Levi Maestro

This episode right here has been in the works for a LONG time. Last week, completely unplanned I got to shoot Tim and his friend Jan while in London. Usually when I compile my episodes I’ll start cutting sequences together to a song and that’ll be that, done deal. Well, with this piece it went a little different. I cut selects and laid a song just for reference and it was so perfect that I didn’t imagine I would replace it until I played this Public Enemy over it. I take pride a lot of times in combining things that rarely would come together in another medium. When I watch this and listen to the lyrics it actually makes perfect sense and surprisingly brought tears to my eyes a few times. This lifestyle, these videos, the stories that I tell….sometimes the thought of it becomes mundane but the fight never does. Through being hassled, sterotyped, misunderstood, or whatever the struggle may be, the message remains loud, we are continuing to love the way we live and to live the way we love. There’s a lot of time, energy, and heart put into something that becomes great.

    Indeed, I love his explaination of it, as soon as he made those connections for me I started looking at like skateboard tricks, “bangers” and hammers (not bangers and mash, not this time at least, this is panneenees and hammers!) and it was much more enjoyable for me to get into once I addapted it through a conduit that I once created, thanks so much man, look how I grow and grow and grow in the presence of Ma Ma Ma Ma Levi Maaaaaaaaaaeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssstrrrrrrrooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Still cant believe you were in bermondsey, just 5 minutes down the road from my area! Always looked through the monitor thinking the life we see in your videos is something that happens far away, its just a reminder that its closer to home than we all think, we can live our dreams too, no matter where we are.
