“Don’t look to other people for validation. Your birth was your validation.”
The photographer has taken photos of over 5000 randoms (mostly in NYC) and has a tiny interview with each one.
What was that one webcomic??
Once a few years ago I read a webcomic short story about two people walking through a city in the future, a guy and a girl. Their path through the streets is guided by technology and they walk through these bright blue arches. One of them is anti-technology but the other is ok with it.
At one point the anti-tech character says “don’t go that way, it’s a sponsored detour” or something to that effect. Advertisements abound.
Anyone know what I’m talking about? I’d love to read it again!
“Your parents do not owe you fun.”
While I agree with the fundamental sentiment here, I think the delivery could be improved. Stop chasing “fun” that is like eating sugar and realize the amazing awesome happiness from “fun” that is closer to a nice piece of fruit.
I mean, like, doing volunteer work etc. CLEARLY makes the volunteers really happy, for way longer than buying some item at a mall etc. I dunno hahaha figuring out long-term-happy things is really a life-long challenge but what a great one! :) <3
Friends of mine started a business teaching pop-music people how to enjoy classical music.
They are professional classical musicians who also play Radiohead covers and more … experimental works with their strings.
They give seminars about classical music in a way that’s actually, really entertaining and instructive for “bored teenagers”.
They give music lessons in small groups so it’s actually affordable for non-wealthy families.
…They’re working to get financially independent right now. (With IndieGoGo they don’t need to meet the donation goal to get the money.) I love this group not just because they are my friends but also because they’re trying to get people interested in music and what makes music interesting, how to understand and explain that to everyday people, so they can understand the brilliance of modern music too, so they “get” Bach and so they “get” Pearl Jam.
