As this video clearly illustrates, Heg Robinson is a tele-kenetic master.
I am genuinely interested in understanding what is happening in this video. If anyone reading this has any insight into this, please post a comment.
I came across this video while attempting to do research for a writing project I've been working on. I blogged about this the other day: When a Ghost Becomes a Vampire. This video was not the slightest bit helpful in that regard, but I'm not disappointed I happened upon it.
I've always been quite curious about the roots of peoples' actions that the majority of society immediately perceive as crazy. In fact, some of the more bizarre things I've witnessed have inspired me to write. But I feel like I have often been too quick to judge and make fun of these things. I'm trying hard not to act this way anymore. I'm trying to be more constructive and less cynical.
As a writer, I've found myself constantly questioning the value of the words and images I choose to share. I've come to appreciate the courage (or ignorance, or vanity) it takes to put one's own "art" out there for anyone to judge.
I have also, more recently, started to realize and appreciate the difficulty involved in writing a fair review of other people's work. Paradise Squandered, my debut novel, has been out for a while now and has received a fair number or reviews, most of them overwhelmingly positive. But there have been critical reviews of my book as well. The most thoughtful critical review of my book thus far was written by Paul Cosca: REVIEW: Paradise Squandered.
When I began reading this review for the first time, I started to cringe. I worried that Paul's characterization of my protagonist as a "hipster" that he hated and couldn't sympathize with meant that he hated my book as well. As I continued reading, I was relieved to realize that this wasn't the case, and that he actually really liked my book.
I was impressed by Paul's ability to separate his negative feelings toward my protagonist from his assessment of other aspects of my book.
I recently began writing reviews of other peoples' work. I feel like it is only fair for me to reciprocate in this way. But taking the time to formulate a coherent, honest review is a lot tougher than I expected it to be. So, to everyone who has taken the time to review my work, thank you.
