We have decided that we are going to refer to Craig as Craig2000.  Actually, you know what, it’s going to be Craigator2000!  This is an official proclaimation from the King James Cameron, for he has been the only one to obtain unobtainium… the hardtogetium… the elusivinium… the boardwalkium… the charizardpokemoncardium. Well, you know it.

Lets us explain to you why the King James Cameron has decided to proclaim Craig to be Craigator2000.

It was a calm Sunday afternoon.  The sun was bright but there were some folks inside an apartment looking at computers.

“Join our blog,” said Joe to Craig.

“Sure,” said Craig back to Joe.

So it was settled that Craig would become apart of the team.

The next day Joe set up Craig an account on WordPress.  It was a time of celebration.

Shortly, three or four days later, Craig finally registered his account.  It was another time of celebration.  For you see, our wolf pack had grown by one.

Deep into the night Craig toiled and feverishly crafted his first blog posts.  Little did he know he did not tag nor categorize his post.

“Bah!” he said to such things and with a click of his finger he posted.

Now the story turns down a bleak path.

“You know Craig, we didn’t discuss this earlier, but you need a transformer name to really be a part of the blog.  This will be your final step to obtain the elightenment,” said Joe to Craig.

“Oh,” said Craig.

“Yes. Elekon and I were thinking that you should be Craig2000, you know because you like 2000 so much,” said Joe.

“Oh,” said Craig.

“Yeah, it sounds cool,” said Joe.

“Well you see, I was thinking for along the lines of Craig-tron,” said Craig.

This was the end of that conversation.

The next day Joe attended a Royal Feast with King James Cameron.  They dined on ale and swine.

King James Cameron has a mightly god voice this causes him to whisper into Joe’s ear.

“Yes sire!” exclaimed Joe.

And the meal ended.

And that is how Craig got the name Craigator2000.

Why people are not amazing anymore.

You know back in like the 1600’s and whatnot when there were those very, very famous people in the arts, like Bach, Mozart, Van Gogh, who have standed the test of time and are widely known all around the world.  Their music and art will never die and never stopped being loved.  But in this day and age is it very difficult to find people who are known all around the world in a big way.  There aren’t greats anymore.

I was watching a Where the Wild Things Are directed by Spike Jonze and I noticed that the score and background music was very intricate and enjoyable to listen to.  It sounded complicated but clean.  But whom ever composed it will not live through out the years.

So this is it, I think that the reason we don’t have Greats anymore in society is because too many people have been granted opportunity and have tainted the professions with so much garbage and reproduction and lack of originality that has saturated the arts that it is hard to pinpoint someone who can stand the test of time and is totally original.  Everyone has access to a guitar and mike and everyone can lay down a track. Myspace and youtube have made everyone stars.

Example: Go youtube “I kissed a lobster”.  She’s mildly famous.  And she’s quite wretched.

Back in the day the greats had to strive and work hard.  They set themselves apart by mastering and creating something completely knew.  They got themselves a piano and worked at it and saw a new light.  They looked at a canvas and saw something else.

No one can have great lasting fame anymore, but rather everyone can have their 15 minutes.

So I had a thought the other day whilst driving…

We, as people, are able to create complicated objects that help up greatly in our daily live.  We make these objects that have small minute parts that are connected just right so that they move just right at the right times to move.

If you look at a car engine it really is an amazing invention.  It moves this large hull that we sit in and can control where it points and thusly where it is going to travel. To make it work we have harnessed the power of fire.  This teeny-tiny little spark makes our complicated machine react in a very specific way.  Well how.

And not only does it make us go forward efficiently, it also does not break easily.  How many times have you grinded gears or shifted into the wrong gear? Luckily your car does not explode.  We have made an adapting system.  It feels.

Bionic eyes are made too now!

I’m holding out for my jetpack still.

I was walking to school one lovely fall morning and I started to think: when we walk, all we are doing is propelling our bodies forward in a very complicated manor. It was mind blowing to think such a thing.  Walking, a simple day to day activity being complicated? Except that is is.  We push ourselves (propel) forward with the ball of our foot as we balance our bodies upright.  We move ridiculously.

Also, cars are magnificent creations.

🙂 ❤

For fun:

p.s. Joe, here you go.  I posted now you can’t complain at me anymore.
