People of the world...UNITE!!
Last night I was talking with Madeline about how we should utilize all of our extremely creative friends to make great things happen. This idea was inspired by my amazing friend Mickey, the genius behind The Olsen Twinns (check out the band's web site here & facebook here). Mickey creates mind blowing/life altering shows which combine graphic art, fusion dance, avant-garde electronic music, computer technology, and crazy light and visual art shows. The process which Mickey goes through to acheive this effect is simple; he uses the talents of the resources that are closest to him - his friends.
We all have friends or people we know who are talented, whether it be through the internet or through real life interactions. We can create awesome projects if we combine our skills. The best thing about being young is that we have not exhausted our creativity. (yet). So, while we are still super enthusiastic about art, politics, rights, the environment, and what-have-you, we should find like minded people and offer a new perspective, or help change the norm with unifying our talents.
Other people have used this idea, it is not a new one - just a really good one. WORKING TOGETHER HELPS THE WOLRD BECOME A BETTER PLACE. Think of your talents and think outside of the box, find new ways that you can utilize those skills and create art, or help raise awareness on an important issue.
Go forth and do this.
