KUROSAWA is my jam. It rains as I write. Few click on youtube links, but these quick (8 min) film essays are famous. Be inspired into whatever medium you work in. Ask, how does movement work in writing/music/photography? I'm asking you! I went to film school. My creative expression is informed by it in the general. To get a sense of why, watch -- this is worth (8 min.) And I believe firmly in indirect learning, literacy in everything. A thread weaves through all art. Kurosawa is my JAM.

Move, my fellow creatives! Watch the mud splash.

(I get hankerings to watch Seven Samurai.)

14-year-old guitar virtuouso shreds Paganini

Tina S is is blowing away everyone on YouTube.  She started playing classical guitar at the age of 6 - but now she enjoys intense electric guitar solos!

I really love to see a young girl playing a traditionally macho instrument better than most men will ever do - and looking calm, almost bored, while doing it.  

Some rock guitarists twist about and contort their faces while playing a simple melody really loud.  Others, like Robert Fripp, channel all their emotion into the music and look calm and businesslike while ripping the world to pieces with complex patterns.  Tina S is in the latter school.

I'm amused at how this upsets some people.  Some comments on her videos tell her to play with more 'feeling'.   You even see this on her latest treat, a great version of the solo from Pink Floyd's song 'Comfortably Numb':

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_P-t0idgqI

They're probably watching her face instead of listening to the music. 

I like that solo better than this one here - but I posted this one because she did it a year ago when she was only 14, it demonstrates her speed better... and she looks more bored.

She has a nice matter-of-fact attitude.  From an interview:

Q : What has so far been the most memorable of your early career stages?

Tina: It is a mistake to talk about career for me.  Of course, the buzz on the Internet with the Van Halen solo and the follow-up of the buzz with my second video is very impressive. But for me, I have not yet started my career as a guitarist.

In case you don't know what shred means, try guitarist Steve Vai's definition:

The terminology used for someone who can play an instrument, and has such a tremendous amount of technique that what they do just seems completely effortless and absurd.

I guess this version of Paganini's 5th Caprice, called 'Crossroads', was written by Steve Vai.

There is one simple test without even considering scientific evidence. The average age of climate change deniers.

When the new revolution strikes!
 
Computers and robots are already replacing many workers. What can young people learn now that won’t be superseded within their lifetimes by these devices and that will secure them good jobs and solid income over the next 20, 30 or 50 years? In the universities, we are struggling to answer that question.

Most people complete the majority of their formal education by their early 20s and expect to draw on it for the better part of a century. But a computer can learn in seconds most of the factual information that people get in high school and college, and there will be a great many generations of new computers and robots, improving at an exponential rate, before one long human lifetime has passed.
Universities are struggling to figure out how to impart information to students that won’t be overridden in the near future by computers and robots.

Scientists from Stanford have developed a series of super-small, super strong robots--including this one, that can haul up to 52 pounds, despite weighing less than half an ounce. That’s like you pulling a blue whale.

Sí tiene que ser una analogia, el satélite que ha llegado mas lejos es la sonda Voyager 1, y ya esta más allá de puton, pero igual su reccorrido es una fracción insignificante de lo que vendría a ser el circulo amarillo de la imagen.
