I noticed that my stuff has gone dark lately and i am only looking at depressing things…
Strangely the most badly oppressed people in the world have the most uplifting stories and ideals. I took the following quote fom a completely different by-way but see how they met:
The music for District 9 was scored by Canadian composer Clinton Shorter, who spent three weeks preparing for the film. Director Neill Blomkamp wanted a "raw and dark" score, but one that maintained its South African roots. This was a challenge for Shorter, who found much of the South African music he worked with to be optimistic and joyful. Unable to get the African drums to sound dark and heavy….
As I said:
Badly oppressed people in the world have the most uplifting stories and ideals.
Maybe it is all about escapism. Is it better to be a Lotus Eater than a Haar Bringer?
