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.
V/H/S is a movie about a group of troublemakers sent to a home to find a tape. Instead, they find dozens, and they watch a few of them. Those mini-films are what make up the bulk V/H/S. The short, found footage films are hit or miss, but the concept is sound. I suppose that’s why the movie spawned two sequels. Definitely give this one a watch if you’re looking for something different and scary this Halloween.
For every great song Gungor has, they have a terrible one. But the good ones are so good that they’re worth listening to. They duo is Christian pop/rock music, but they don’t oversell their faith. A lot of their songs deal more with the mystery of God and creation and whatnot rather than outright worship. Check out I Am Mountain, Whale, and Let It Go.
