This girl knows how to rock!
Creativity is an almost undefinable term. Anyone with a camera, a computer or a pack of crayons can call themselves an artist and disseminate their work around the world. But with some much creativity flying around how do we find truly original ideas? This act on America’s Got Talent oozes genius. I’m very skeptical about open call talent shows such as this one. They often give too much credit to gimmicky spectacles and overlook genuine talent. Your average Joe can put on a goofy costume, flop around a stage and get a few chuckles and often a pass to the next round of competition, but it takes real talent and dedication to do what the Silhouette Dance troop did. These are the types of artists that deserve America’s attention.
I knew the first post on this thing was going to be a bit daunting. I want this blog to become something special, and represent the things I enjoy most in life: writing, photography, poetry, good company, a well-mixed drink and most importantly food. I thought I would start with one of my favorite recipes or post one of my best photos, until I found this video. It is a mash up of three songs from Adele’s most recent Album 21. If you have not listened to the album in its entirety while sitting in a cafe, sipping a cup of coffee and reminiscing about the last person who broke your heart, do it now. If there is one thing I like more than the soulful power of Adele’s voice, it is other artists using her genius to make something (dare I say it?) better. I also have a soft spot for dorky guys rockin’ out.
