How to be a Human Being

David Boles is pretty swell when it comes to discussing what makes us work as people. Memes are for sharing information, and he certainly helps us through understanding why we need to keep teaching and talking to each other as humans. "Be a Human Meme!" is his outcry, and I join him in that shout from the mountaintop!

Rank #2: The Bookstore

Podcast cover

Rank #3: You Are Not Gifted

Podcast cover
Read more
We are not our futures; we are only our past. How, then, do we test time, and efficiency, and the promise of productivity from the bliss of the abyss? Malcolm Gladwell does not accept the idea of using timed tests to determine success; but so many programs for the Gifted in public schools require an exam that values time management over the purely creative thought. Here's a True Crime story that nixes a future for the want of a single point -- to make the point.

Rank #4: The Fonda Effect

Podcast cover
Read more
Henry Fonda never stopped being where he was from. He was always an up-from-the-dirt Nebraskan, and the consequence of that fatality was an effect on his performances that was always influenced, and echoed in the dirt, sand, and gravel of the braided prairie. Nebraskans are famous for being friendly, but befriending a Nebraskan is altogether another matter!

Rank #5: Harold Bloom and the American Aesthetic

Podcast cover
Read more
We want our aesthetic to be universal; but it is framed by us where we stand. SuperGenius literary critic Harold Bloom urged us, before he died this week, to ask beyond "What is it for?" -- and to move our thoughtful analysis into a wider notion of wondering with understanding that breaks the context of nationalism, and severs the ties of human boundaries.

Rank #7: The Blue Pencil

Podcast cover

The mark of the editor is blue. Everything created faces some sort of editorial change in production. Do you honor the object? Or do you celebrate the creator? You cannot admire both without the other suffering. Every Blue Pencil is a lesson in hubris and humility; but can we accept the stings of changes?

Rank #8: Loss of the Private Conversation

Podcast cover
Read more
We have lost the sharing of the intimate moment. Examine the loss of the sacred warmth shared between two people in exchange for public hostility. We now live open lives of rubrics, and discourse, and mockery -- everything is now fodder for a Facebook Live broadcast, or an Instagram Snapchat iMessage confabulation.

Rank #9: Progressive Recession

Podcast cover
Read more
We look forward, only to fall back. For all our future progression, we keep failing backward into the pit of what was, and the dusk of what never shall be. We are kept down by our incapacity to hold on to what was once won; stuck between the bee and the sealing wax.

Rank #10: Understanding Without Knowing

Even our SuperGeniuses can sometimes be wrong. Let there be no doubt Bob Lefsetz is an intellectual giant among us. Several times a week, he implores us to be better people in his ubiquitous "Lefsetz Letter" but, alas, last week Bob released a missive entitled, "The Deaf Installer" that missed the mark, and wounded more than it healed.

Rank #15: 99% of Writing is Looking Out the Window

Podcast cover

We write to see what we do not know. 99% of writing is thinking, staring, meandering, and daydreaming. Only 1% of writing is actually inking words to pixels and paper, and only other real writers know that; the rest of the world is wondering why we aren't "writing" as they write a grocery list or a traffic ticket in real time.

Memory is all about perspective. We uncover the trick of memory and storytelling. Who remembers, and what, defines the discovery of what really happened? Characters have a truth of their own that cannot be redefined later, by a deft and talented, outside hand. This is a story of the conflict of dramatic storytelling between mentor Marshall Jamison, and his protégé.

Rank #20: Pete and Repeat

Podcast cover

We prefer to wallow in the together known, than wander into the wilderness alone. We examine our need to not only travel back in time, but to actually relive what we experienced there, while forever escaping the future. If we find comfort in the repetition of aesthetic, then we must also accept the reality that we are no longer our experiences.
