Millennials have every right to be disinterested

Are millennials cut out for this job market? - CNN.com

It's a good sign not to be interested in this job market
Work itself as a commuter nine to five reality is an absurd way to achieve aims that are not in themselves a form of make work
Supercomputers could do what a thousand folk in cubicles do if they were properly mandated
We have tried to fit cyberspace to reality when we should be doing the reverse
The wave of the future should be living and integrating what people do with the way they want to live
People should be able to contribute to a job what they will to contribute
The rules of jobs should be made more specific and more a matter of individual agreement about hours and such
The notion that one size of anything fits more than one ignores the will to personalization that is at the center of consciousness
I would not want to work to sustain a world of sprawl big oil and overpriced education and construction
I would not want to do infrastructure unless it tended toward the car free
We are at the beginning of a time when all our attention to the micro will inevitably start to affect the macro
When that happens nothing will remain the same and jobs might just be fun
Not to mention productive and helpful to others

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
