Brain Sprinkles 98

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.

Animal Collective

Music
Animal Collective

How have I not written about Animal Collective yet? They have, like, 10 albums, and I’ve been listening to them for years. Their new album just came out, and it’s definitely better than 2012’s Centipede Hz, but nothing top’s Animal Collective’s magnum opus, Merriweather Post Pavilion. The band is almost impossible to describe. To newcomers, they’re just noise—annoying noise. But give them a chance and you might find their over-the-top zaniness endearing.
