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.
Based on The xx’s Intro, which everyone has heard, I thought I’d love this synthy dream pop band. I was wrong. None of their music (besides Intro) really sticks out to me. I might give the band another shot down the road, but for now, I wouldn’t consider myself a true fan. Still, I enjoyed some of their tracks, like Islands, Try, and Reunion.
