Have you herd?

Moo Cow Have you herd the word? The word is “moo”. It is not a moot point. The herd likes popular moosic. The herd likes popular moovies. The herd likes moore of the same. If you don’t like like the herd, better moove out of the way because the herd likes to trample bovindividuals.

The Evolution of Music

I usually like to start the day listening to classical masterpieces. For example, Rostropovich performing Bach Cello Sonatas:

Absolute virtuoso! This stirs my spirit and stimulates my mind in ways that cannot really be expressed by words. I started thinking, “What happened to music? Why is there so much of it being churned out these days, and why is so much of it so uninspiring?”

For example, Bruno Mars performing The Lazy Song:

Sure, there is some excellent modern music out there, not always easy to find. What do you think? Is music evolving? Is society evolving?

P.S. Did you notice the hand gesture that starts off the Lazy Song and then the shape the performers are arranged in? Just an interesting, perhaps meaningless detail for those who pay attention to things like that to take note of.

Skvalthr at Gullfoss

Something wild, majestic, mystical and awe-inspiring:

I would rather watch that 1000, make that 10000, times in a row rather than any of the crap spewing out of the thousands of channels of television network broadcasting. Compare to, for example:

Are you kidding me? MSNBC interrupts a discussion regarding ending the NSA for breaking news about a Justin Bieber DUI arrest? “Lean forward” my ass! TV has become almost 24/7 crap, shoved down the throat with some commercial intermissions to break up the raucous monotonous menagerie with more heinous loudly subliminal programming. May it all drown in Gullfoss.

Want vs Need

Begin decreasing the conceptual emphasis on what you “need” to do and start increasing the actual doing of what you want to do. When you focus more on what you truly want and move away from the false obligations you have been persuaded to believe are necessary, you fulfil your life purpose and by extension make the world a better place. Find the balance of wants and needs. Respect the systems that are currently in place and find ways to transcend the constraints that are not beneficial.

Be in tune with true inspiration and what is really wanted, instead of acting on what you have been manipulated to pursue by outside influences that do not hold your best interest. Your deeper feelings provide guidance and silent time in contemplation can help with the tuning process.
