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.

People like that don’t die!

As the whole world knows, this past summer has been the summer of the death a tonnes of big celebrities (may they all rest in peace).  And, as the numbers get higher, the more likely it is that these people who died I have known about for a while.  And while it’s been sad and what not, nothing has shocked me more than when Avenged Sevenfold’s drummer The Rev (Jimmy Sullivan) died.

I haven’t listened to them in a long while as they sort of fell short of what I liked, expected, and grew into.  But I spent my preteen angsty years listening to them. Just like I spend my childhood (6-9ish) listening to the Backstreet Boys.  When I outgrew these bands they simply fell to the wayside in my mind and forever that was how they would be.

This destroyed my reality.  Past celebrities do not die. This is exactly how I felt when Billy Mays died.  Who makes a big deal about the death of OxyClean spokeman?! Our generation.

This also dates me, people I grew up listening too from my generation have died.  I am old enough to witness my generations celebrites die.

In short: this is like a Backstreet Boy dying, no one cares anymore about them, but there are childhood fondness that will bubble up if one croaks.

As for Brittany Murphy, may she RIP. Drop Dead Gorgeous and Clueless would have been nothing without you.

On a side note: when I spawn children they are not getting raised by the TV so that they get attached to such things.
