1) Statement seems to imply that because there are multiple people behind the work, the work is more likely to be forgotten or to be transient.

There are plenty of examples this idea takes for granted, not to mention the possibility that some of the Greats were only remembered with the help of societal circumstances.

2) Sort of the same idea as 1.) ...The Brothers Grimm and Shakespeare come to mind. Maybe there are better examples...

If my memory serves me correctly, Eyes Wide Shut was indeed pretty nihilistic. There is not one mode of thought pertaining to sex and mating that is shown to be the "right" one. Instead it's more like a showcase of sexual shit that happens for the sake of happening in all its wonder. The ending affirms this: You snap out of the trance when the film is summarized in one phrase. Kidman says something to the effect of "we should just fuck."

Working your way up to change society is admirable. We are just sceptical because we have become used to talkers.

And though her choice of words may have been less than perfect, the message was still poignant.

Here are some related videos:

Changing Education Paradigms

School without teachers or timetable

Interesting stuff, however, it would probably be impossible to change anything without changing society as a whole.

You have your whole life to create your first album but only a year or two for the following.

While books are sequential, argumentative and, abstract, Television is instantaneous, fragmentary and already digested for watchers. We, humanity, found a way to make written text as dull as TV: the Internet.

Well said.

As for the generation being more family oriented, my guess is that it is because there are more peasant-type people and less leaders. Kind of like Italian or jewish populations.

I agree largely with this, but I must inquire, why ignore your parents' advice? Surely, while I do not get along with my parents all the time I still respect them highly and think of them as people I could potentially learn from. (Granted I don't follow ALL of their advice either but my father is very worldly and hands on while my mother is very book smart)

Not every parent is accomplished or wise, and it doesn't take a genius (youth)  to see this.

Metal / Re: Industrial black metal fails

I believe Programmed Cell Death, a part of HI.ARC.TOW, deserves honorable mention. I've been listening to them since their initial release. I've found that industrial metal offers little else beyond Godflesh and PCD, too.

I agree. Programmed Cell Death shows promise. While their releases aren't mindbendingly good, they do leave me wanting more.

A lot of people, when they mention they gave up TV, fail to mention how often they use the internet and to what end. The internet has the potential to be as destructive if not more destructive than television.

Interzone / Re: Where are all the intellectuals?
« on: December 30, 2009, 06:16:46 PM »
I would submit that technology is taking up the time and creativity of a big part of the intellectuals who would have otherwise been involved in literature. The availability and sheer variety of new technical discoveries means that a lot of the mind power that would be expressed in a written form is being put to practical/material use.

Here is a Google Video link to a captivating documentary about the Monsanto company and how their production of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are affecting or could potentially affect the world. It has been an introduction to some of the challenges we actually face with genetic engineering and related topics.

Ironically, metalheads are definitely not a particularly macho or assertive bunch. Paradox? Not really. I think metalheads as a class have low self-esteem but unlike most youth subcultures they have an idea of what they'd like to be. Part of that vision involves not being a metalhead.

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like you are referring to the internet era "metalhead" and not to the original self-starters they base their image on.
