Marketing hype really distorts this sort of thing, I think it's a great idea to show people range and variation about who a person is. I find people to be extremely inflexible in their thinking about who people are. Range is a function of humanity and I feel that "they're only x y z" mentality is an injustice against a person's fundamental humanity. Yes we all have our strengths but everyone should try to expand and do different things. Marketing is a wonderful tool for inspiring interest but like any tool it requires a honing and finesse and generally that's not applied enough People really need to learn to put hype aside and focus on the more substantive stuff

The world has lost a lot of perspective when it comes to the magnitude and scope of what we are capable of, and our obsession with sometimes meaningless detail represents a stumbling block to our advancement. We have a great planet, and are a fascinating species, but we constantly stumble when it comes to moving forward, distracted by ourselves, distracted by minor issues, distracted by things that just aren't important - to the point where we neglect relationships, neglect family, neglect our responsibility to our very planet, and to our species. We've spent far too long divided from where we need to be headed with our future - and blinded by those things that aren't as important, while crucial things that SHOULD be thought about get lost along the way I find the situation tragic and disappointing, and freely admit I am as guilty of it as anyone else, I just hope the rest of the world can acknowledge the difference we can make together and our responsibilities to each other, and our shared future.. but we face many distractions, many temptations, and unfortunately even our most noble souls can occassionally fall victim to their own mistakes, sometimes even tragically.. Humanity will always struggle with these issues, but perspective on what is most vitally important is what is essential for our future Thank you for making this statement, I remember that moment all too well myself - especially as it came in the midst of some of the darkest years of my life.. I really hope we can someday achieve the vision of peace embraced by inspirational personages like Roddenberry, and hopefully move past our limitations and mistakes together as a species to embrace our responsibilites properly. Because honestly, I don't want us to stay here, fighting with each other in the dirt, the risk of something bad happening wiping us all out is just too great, we have to move forward into space. Too risky keeping all our eggs in one basket.

Great pic but the hoops to get anything done, aigh! It feels like modern tech is held together with bubblegum and bailing wire sometimes...

Yes Yes! Absoloutely accurate, though there is the issue of "blocks" to contend with, but an absoloute commitment to creation produces some of the most amazing work A soul without passion for what it does is nothing more than an automaton, that will grind it's gears until it stalls as the gears grind to a halt. This is why settling on a job is a poor subsitute for settling on a career. To any that may stumble on this, please listen to what he says - for it's a deep truth about the human soul, that goes past just acting, the arts, or even simply jobs. It speaks to finding joy and satisfaction in life itself. Take the time to delight in one's profession, to enjoy it, to remember Why it's important to you. Truth be told, Without enjoying one's profession, or life.. well, that is a special kind of hell, that gnaws at a mortal soul, eating it away...

Thats an interesting concept, first I'd heard of it but it kinda makes sense. Great approach to trying to take advantage of it - I'll have to borrow that trick sometime, myself!
