Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
I did it. I finally did it. I finished the abomination that is the Star Wars prequels. Honestly, I was barely paying attention this time around. I had completely lost interest in the prequels’ plot and characters. The horrible acting and directing helped nothing. So yeah, Anakin turned fully evil, killed some Jedi, and then burned alive in one of the most brutal scenes in PG-13-rated movie scenes of all time. I don’t think I’ll be watching the prequels until I have kids of my own to show it to. Good riddance to this whole train wreck.
