De-Brainwashing: an introduction

October 3, 2008

This is a spin-off of my personal blog. I’ve decided this topic necessitates it’s own blog. Here’s the basic idea:

We are exposed to over 5,000 a day – what’s even more frightening is that it’s working. No matter how little money we have in our lives, we STILL give money to the super rich every day. Sometimes it’s paying for an overpriced movie ticket. Other times it’s going to an athletic event or concert for a mega-artist. Meanwhile the things that truly matter in life are falling to the wayside. Consider this.

If you like football – play football with your family as opposed to giving more money to the ultra rich athletes.

If you like music – go to the local coffee shop or a concert for an artist who is not already rich.

If you like movies – support the local community theatre, local film festival, or independent theatre.

There is a misconception out there that the best entertainment comes from the big companies. Take a look at my previous post.  It lists studio films and independent films – I’m sure after reading it you’ll give independent films much more credit.  Don’t let the studios brainwash you.  The same applies to the music industry as well – overall, the mega-artists ARE NOT THE MOST TALENTED MUSICIANS – they are simply hotter.

This blog is designed to remind you that YOU are valuable.  YOU are an important contribution to this world and you have an obligation to see that in your neighbors as well.  It’s vital to our sanity, and to our souls that we stop idolizing studio-backed talent.
