Learning Cello on my own in mid 30
And, yes, one is able to pick up on any skill from playing the cello, learning to draw well, video editor, golf, mathematics, so on and so forth.
Plan and Strategize.
Execute with Discipline.
Positive Results Will Come.
The message inside of the entertainment is crucial, as is the way athletic events are played/held as well as what they are intended to stand for. As of current, the overwhelming majority of entertainment and sports are a poisonous drug, though occasionally some great, positive stuff gets through.
Change the entertainment==change the ideal==change the culture
Defeatism is a very dangerous mind-set to get into.
Also, I think it is unnecessary. If one wants to reach the people, they have to identify where the power is at, and meet them there while wielding it. A tremendous amount of power in our society is in entertainment and sports, therefore they can function as conduits for being heard and taken seriously. Therefore, training in such as as music, art (i.e. video making, comic books, etc.) and extreme, impressive athletic feats that captures the public's attention is a potential route to being heard, if so desired.
Building readily available alternatives to the mainstream, often and overwhelmingly degenerate mind-poison, is a very challenging and likely highly rewarding endeavor.
The Tell-Tale Heart is a relevant allegory to those who commit a wrong, that escapes the direct attention of others, though not themselves. Which, in time, brings about one's own self-destruction. I am pointing out to you, through making use of this story, that your snarkiness, manipulation, and deception is taking a higher toll on you than you may be consciously aware of.
Have you considered the possibility that this type of bizarrely irrelevant anecdote is precisely what prompted SlaveDevice to reprimand you for rambling in the first place?
It is entirely relevant to the point.
However, I have considered that I skip too many steps and should better show all my work as you, Slave, and others may have trouble keeping up with the pace--very much how solving a math problems breaks down actually. I will take that into further consideration in the future and attempt to adjust accordingly.
Then, you find nothing devious, underhanded, subversive, or generally passive-aggressive about your comment?
I find that doubtful. That is, I think you are well aware of intentionally, strategically implementing the snide remark and are now playing the innocent as a means of washing the blood cleaning after being seen with blood on the palms.
Remember, one never truly gets away with anything--the conscious will not allow it, as is beautifully illustrated in Edgar Allen Poe's tale of the "Tell-Tale Heart". You are hurting yourself with the collection of moral debt. The only who escape the weight of immoral baggage are 100% psychopaths, who are condemned to lead a cursed life.
I do believe that you sometimes complicate the things you write for the reasons stipulated.
There is truth in that only in-so-far as I am trying something new or playing around, to various extent. Consider, in basketball, for instance, one can stick to basics such as crossover, jump-shot, spin move, bounce pass, etc. as well as the relevant attributes leading to a stronger successful completion of these fundamentals, such as speed, strength, awareness, etc. Now, in sport, as in thought, I, in truth, very much stick to fundamentals as staples, and then creatively play around with new combinations as a means of expanding the tree trunk with few branches to new, varied branches and twigs that are sound in structure. That is what you may see from me, nothing more or less.
In truth, I detest the "And1" excessive flashiness in both physical domain as well as with thought. It misses the point, excessively postures, is a violation of the rules, and is generally inferior.
The suggestion being that your job as a writer is to accurately communicate your ideas to others, not to purposefully complicate the things you write to sell the idea that you are intelligent.
Although I agree with the spirit of your comment, there was nothing complicated about my OP. In fact, it was rather straight-forward. Mint clearly comprehended the meaning I am quite sure you understood the meaning, and, further, it appears SlaveDevice, who is the thread-creator, grasped the meaning as well. Then, who is this invisible, intangible audience that I allegedly have wronged?
