Well.. actually it does motivate kids to pick up an actual guitar.
And the drums in Rockband DO teach you how to play actual drums.
So don't go slighting those Faux Guitars MC Lars.
We've become a society obsessed with the moment or the now.
God I wish that were true...
If it were, we'd all be much happier.
Forget about putting some effort into learning an instrument or putting some brain power into a stimulating cartoon.. NOOO.. We want it now.
Did you actually say "putting some brain power into a stimulating cartoon"?
Ok, so I think you may be mistaking the desire to live in the moment, right now... with instant gratification.
Those two things are COMPLETELY different.
We worship the particle and ride the wave that comes along with it. What will that wave be? A generation of boring identical kids with the same
haircut and the same crappy taste in music.
Yeah... kinda like the last 8 generations.
Not to mention how easy it will be to mold those minds to whatever nefarious agenda TPB may be hiding up there sleeves. A mind that only lives in the
now is a mind that can only react in the now. Through fear.
Whoa... you have obviously never studied mindfulness or zen. These two concepts, when applied, have the only goal of living in the now. And guess
what... when you really live in the now... you stop REACTING to things. You also lose all fear.
Methinks you should do some research on your ideas to help you perfect them... speaking of brain power.
"Worship the wave, ride the particle"
Don't woship anything except for the experience of right now. Because that is all there is.
