I’ve seen it time and time again. People get frustrated and bored with the same ten or twelve ideas that spring up. Whether it’s in a TV show, on an album, in a book, or in a film, we all tend to consume what Big Money America wants us to consume — without thought, without hesitation. It reminds me a lot of the Gold Rush of 1849. One particular spot gets lucky and everyone within fifty miles jumps on the bandwagon.
Ask yourself: “Are these the only ideas out there worth my time and money? Is there more to it than what I’m having forced onto me?” It’s way too easy to fall into the mindless lethargy that has become our entertainment industry. For every clone of a hot topic out there now, there are a dozen fresh and talented creators of innovative ideas being brushed aside by the giants in the business.
Here’s where the rubber meets the road. It will take some effort and time to explore the possibilities and see what they don’t want you to see. In the end, you’ll be glad that you did, though. It’s time for all of us to wake up from the crap coma that corporate America has lulled us into and make decisions for ourselves.
