More Soul & Emotional Content than ... (the news)

About: fun.: some nights [official video] - youtube


I heard this song on the radio yesterday & my spirits picked up. It reminded me of  the word salad & dry intellectualism content of the news & this item.

One might also ponder since words don't mean much any longer that what is communicated is the opportunity to make emotional content from the music, art & the videos. The words of the song were not even the most important emotional motivation of the song. Some were just anchors.

well i will give it A+ for emotional content.

it failed for me on matching the word salad of the lyrics with that emotional content.   for me the meaning of the words were just some random association of an emotion only known by the artists ... and as far as i can tell nothing to do with the story in [item 18453]

... but shit yeah lots of raw emotion there pitch perfectly expressing [?].

... the same kind of shit that play nexus & LOA generate - feelings.

are you tripping on feelings with no coherent story behind them?

Rather than go down the rat-holes of abstract, conceptual, dry intellectualistic meanderings these days which motivate nothing in me I prefer listening to something that feeds my soul & appreciating worlds of that kind which have artistic portals. I can do either & any. I appreciate your endeavors in farming & toothless cooking.  BTW, today I get to have my remaining nubs ot my last two teeth removed. Will probably try some dentures afterwards since I can get a better variety of nutrition that way or, at least without as much trouble.

It is interesting that the group singing this song is named FUN which aligns with Nate's motivation in play nexus.

incidentally re your teeth.  i strongly recommend letting your gums stabalize before getting dentures.  the dentists will recommend that same thing.  forcing the dentures in soon after the gums have lost their teeth, from my experience, is just not worth it. 
THanks.    Most of the jaw has been vacant for a year or more.  Two were removed a couple of weeks ago & are reasonably stable. These are the last.  The time it takes to get appointments will probably take care of the rest.

actually my question was in no way however you characterized it.   i actually could feel the emotion of Fun's soung too.   But for me it was disconnected in any meaningful way from that other aspect of myself which thinks.  i suppose if i studied the words and the images a long time in the context of how the group is thinking, i could pick up on their meaning ... but none of that came out.  So for me it was like a drug.  I pop the pill and i get this feeling salad of anger and strength and pathos.  that is just not my thing.  i am all about the coordination of though, feeling, and action with the deeds of others.  feeling a surge of emotion just apart from that in and of itself is for me no better than snorting some coke. 

... and yes, in so far as LOA is just about creating an emotion of fun and joy, why not just cop a good pharmaceutical. 
Because it is fake! Just like most of the news & especially politics. Drink the juice & the kool-aid as you will - I'm jumping off the bandwagon.

Further distortion provided by the M$M & Google see:

Certainly there is a  "filter bubble" by  Google and Facebook etc ... and even the M$M has theirs too  ... fox a different one than nbc.  I see this as merely an extension of our own individual personal filter bubbles inside our skulls.  I see it as just the way this mind network necessarily grows ... like you said, neither good or bad, just what is happening.  But knowing this filter focus is there, i think, can help indicate how to transcend distortions that get perpetrated.   For example according to Google,  if you zoom in far enough on pixels you get dogs .  
I got closer to dogs by feeding my dog this morning! No pixels.

well i hail you jumping off the bandwagon ... even though i have no idea which one it is.

Me, i seek more engagement.  When i do something real (not fake), i can feel the ripples spreading to others ... when i just fall into my internal feelings, i cannot.  There are some great  engagements happening  in the LOA crowd ... and fake ones as well ... same as the political game ... same as any other game.  things are what we make them to be ... fake it or make it .... your choice.  I will make up how to swim in my own way ... notwithstanding that everybody is always telling me the secret of how. 

Strange how the message i originally got from Tony was, start out by imagining it and then fake it, assume reality will follow.  I haven't been able to get the knack of doing it that way.  Your method appears to involve pissing everything in the world away ... how is that working for you?

I'm going for less FAKE & LIES & more of what's so as my senses & experience reveal; more Zen - less selfie!

people realize the difference between games and actual reality.  this TED talk  indicates how the one can be leveraged for the sake of the other. 
Some do & some don't!Some don't even know the difference between TV & reality.
