"[Improv] makes you work with people better, just in general. And I don’t mean like work like at a job—just interact with people better. I keep going back to the same word “listening,” but it really is just that."

With the virality of the new Cosmos series and internet culture and the slow ebbing of Christianity’s stranglehold of American culture, I think we’re going to see a strong shift in Christianity’s perspective on creation. Many kind atheists and agnostics (and Christians) have pointed out that an intelligently designed universe would probably feature a mechanism for creating new species, rather than creating each animal individually, and that mechanism is evolution by way of natural selection. In this way, intelligent design and evolution are not necessarily mutually exclusive beliefs. Still, Christians generally denied evolution and supported a literal creationist view, but this opinion will become much less popular very soon. I bet it already has. I can’t imagine a Christian millennial growing up and espousing a literal interpretation of the creation story.

"TALKING HEADS" (GADAJACE GLOWY): a short documentary, directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski in 1980, turns a simple idea into a masterpiece: ordinary people of different age and background in Poland were asked 3 simple questions. Their spontaneous responses reveal the way they see life…

Part 1: “WHO ARE YOU?”: A difficult question with a simple answer…

wondering if I don’t know who I am all of a sudden.

Ok got to find this doc.

Also this doc should be remade.

Grow/ Let Go.

Grow: explore, learn, evolve, practice, be curious.

Let go: don’t worry so much, heal, take a nap, enjoy the ride.

Everything about this is perfect. The melody, the lyrics, George Harrison’s performance, and the music video, OH MY GOD, especially the music video. Pure genius.

Kanye West hears music differently than we do. It goes through the Kanye filter in his brain and he hears all the best parts and highlights them and rearranges them and puts them back together to make Super Music. Blood on the Leaves is Super Music. Jesus Walks. Heard ‘Em Say. Runaway. No Church in the Wild. 
SUPER MUSIC.

What advice do you have for someone facing homelessness and struggling to have a job, water, food, and other bare essentials to survive?

- Tim

Dear Tim,

First of all, don’t give up. Second, work your ass off. Third, stay strong and do everything you can to hold your feeling of life together. There are moments when many of us get close to the edge in different ways, and there can be almost a magnetic pull to go off the edge—kind of like riding your bike near a cliff and for some reason your whole body seems to pull towards where you don’t want to go.

This is the time to surround yourself with your own power. Even if there aren’t others around you to comfort you and cheer you on, there’s still you. And you can always care for yourself. That’s the most important person right now: You. Always be able to count on yourself and find strength in your own presence.

While you’re with yourself, you might as well take an extremely honest look at your life and what caused you to wind up here. Be brutal with yourself. Even if it’s painful, try to take as much responsibility for your situation as you can. Even if others deserve blame, don’t blame them—and don’t blame bad luck or anything outside of your immediate self. 

Why? Because you want to give yourself and only yourself the power to make or break your own life. The same power that got your here, also can get you out. And as you go through this experience, try to learn from the entire adventure. What’s so great about “regular life” anyway? A lot of people are miserable and they’ve got all the bare essentials covered and lots more. Comfort, security, and happiness come from inside you.

You have found yourself here and you must embrace it. Fight for what you want and what you love, not against what you hate and don’t want. You will make it through this. And please write back with a mailing address so I can send you some cash. Stay positive.

Your friend,
Andrew W.K.
