Parul Sehgal: An ode to envy | TED Talk | TED.com

31 Dec

Feelings, breeding art – and art, feeding feelings…

…#Fehgal on #Proust – and a chunk of them libraries!

(And yeah, volumes of relative, subjective introspection, to boot…)

“…

And what does jealousy like? Jealousy likes information. Jealousy likes details. Jealousy likes the vast quantities of shiny hair, the cute little pencil case. Jealousy likes photos. That’s why #Instagram is such a hit.

…” – #TED.Com

(As yeah, some of us found our way back to them illustrated ones – Encyclopedias!)

“…And home, in the end, is of course not just the place where you sleep. It’s the place where you stand” [… where you become yourself… – Proust]

A Dare from Bill – and a Table Topic! #CareToShare

Watch “Pink Floyd – The Thin Ice – Live, 1980” on YouTube

19 Feb

Why watch?

That awkward moment, laden with epiphanies, about lyrics often sung – yet not fully understood…

“When you go skating
on the thin ice
of my life
draggin’ behind you
the silent reproach
of a million sleepless nights

Don’t be surprised
when a crack in the ice
appears under your feet

you slip out… with your fears… flowing out behind you… as you call out for

t-h-i-n.  i-c-e!

(with apologies to the purists in the audience)

I mean, what with #Rex and #Pax and about four other layers now disabling me from safely leaving the house???

“Mother, do you think they’ll run the plow…. mother do you think I’ll break my balls… bones!”

😀

“… Mother? should I build a wall???”

16 Jul

Yup – Historic, this “Late Spring/Early Summer” patterns – pray the crops don’t mind it, puddles all over yesterday, and so much deadly, freakish #weather all over the screen yesterday… (guess #WinterQuinto wasn’t done yet, what with mentions of #PolarVortex abounding?) – #Screenblogging courtesy of @Wunderground Android App – my data/p.o.v, their app)

Inceptions

28 May

And then it hits you – intersecting #SystemsSociology with #BusinessEngineering (Studies – one already out there as an #MBE)… howzabout kicking things up a few notches with a few splashes of Advanced #Simultaneity Research? (And making it the core of both the dissertation as well as the book?…)

#FeatureSchlock – thereby ye formed!
