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.
Bob Belcher lives the ideal life. He’s got his own business with a home above in a coastal city, an adoring wife and three amazing kids. But he still manages to run into several hijinks chronicled through Bob’s Burgers, my new favorite cartoon. It’s a well-written sitcom-style animated series, like Family Guy, only more clever and heartwarming and less crass. I blasted through five seasons in just a few weeks. Like the burgers Bob cooks for a living, Bob’s Burgers is comforting to those who want to enjoy its home-cooked flavor.
