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.
That ’70s Show
Like everyone else, I’d seen episodes of That ’70s Show here and there, but I finally decided to sit down and watch it start to finish (not all in one sitting, of course). As funny as the show can be, it’s equally as cringey. Seriously, some of the acting is super bad. And every set and prop in the show feels so fake that I’m constantly reminded the show isn’t not real. I mean, I know it isn’t, but the show if full of reminders. I feel like I’m watching a play at time. That said, it’s still a good background distraction while I’m browsing the web or whatever.
