So with the Happy Turkey Day just right around the corner the person or persons we take our hat off to are the people who created the chair. So according to Wikipedia the chair got its origins in Egypt. The chair wasn’t sat in and commonly available for regular people until the 16th century. The chair was a sign of royalty. Only royal people and the exclusive or rich were allowed to sit in chairs. Really? Yes. Really. So I provided a link in this article that will give you more information about the history of chairs. But when you’re stuffing your face with turkey going gobble gobble (and not from the turkey) as your bottom sits and rests….thank all the men and women before you who contributed to that comfort that you enjoy today and probably take for granted. I just got a thought that would be so hilarious if we didn’t have the idea for a chair but we all had to stand at gatherings dinners and restaurants as we ate. That would be so hilarious. Well enjoy your day night or evening once again. Click the link to read more about the people who have contributed to society by building chairs.
Sometimes on our destination it can get scary. Things can get bumpy and seem out of place. There’s nothing like listening to motivational speakers who keep you focused on your objective. Thanks all folks. Les Brown is very inspiring and motivating speaker. Thanks for watching. Goodnight.
So the question is if you could be on the set of one of the legends. Which would you choose? Me personally, I probably would choose to work with Hitchcock. Then sneak the other half of the day to work with Stone. I really like Hitchcock creative way of looking a familiar concepts and things. But I like the storytelling narration of Stone. I really enjoyed his series that was recently on HBO or Showtime regarding the untold history of the United States. The history that wasn’t told by the main media outlets for whatever reasons. The series was very informative and even talked about the politicians that we have in office now and how they got there. So whoever choose everyway both are great men who inspire others to create, film, and connect with their audiences.
So what do political voting signs have to do with anything creative. Alot in fact. Take for instance the name. Well first let me get my thoughts together. Okay got it. Now the name. Well let me put a picture in here as reference. Something thrown together using Illustrator.
So the sign like all political signs say the person’s name in small to basic print. Then it has the last name in SUPERBOLD Extra LARGE PRINT,now I get it. Most people aren’t going to take the time to read through the issues and see where each person stands. But the question I ask is what do the large letters stand for really. Well of course the obvious answer is so when people get to the polls they can remember the last name when they see it on the voting form. Well yes that’s one way of looking at it. But I think the real reason whether obvious or not is people identify with last names. People draw pictures with last names. If I say Kedrick Johnson for school superintendent. You automatically drawed a picture of what Kedrick Johnson looks like for Superintendent. When I say Ricardo Fuentes for Mayor. You draw a picture of the person whos running for that spot. Now what most people fail to admit but do because I was guilty of it in the past. We say do I want this guy in charge of doing this or that in my community. Then all your prejuides and biases, perceived or real experiences go to work and assist you with your decision making. So if my name is Thomas Reynord and I want to be Chairman of Arts. I might not get that many votes since people picture a Chairman of Arts differently. That doesn’t mean that Thomas can’t be Chairman of Arts, it just might be a harder sell.
So what does creativity have to do with politics? Everything. The conception of the idea. The way to reach the people. The way to sway public opinion. Polls. Mentality. Call to actions. Yes the same mechanisms of selling and marketing are in politics. Who’d a thoguht. LOL. Well enough of mi (yes mi) (in a pirate voice) ranting. Until next time Electramorhipism. Out.
