Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff
We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy
The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan
Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden
We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre
But we have chosen coin
and coin does not sing
Honestly, I hate that life is so grueling. I really want it to be beautiful and peaceful and fun. Instead of a death march, maybe it could be more like a death…walk.
Happy New Year! January 1st is Public Domain day in the United States. All film, books, poetry, photos, and scores originally published in 1926 are now in the Public Domain in the US. Additionally, and significantly, this year marks the first time that any Audio Recordings have entered the public domain. You, and all Americans, now own more than 400,000 of these historic recordings. What does it all mean? And which works are in the public domain now?
