#5 Family Guy

This animated comedy show is on my “ Top 5 TV shows till now ” list because it has 10 seasons and 11th one coming out and it hasn’t disappointed even with 1 episode. That is the thing which separates it from other animated shows. The other thing is the creative and brave jokes that it generates. Ok, but why is it on this list along with non-animated TV shows? Here is the thing, it is far more than just a comedy. It is a complex character mix and it plays with complex topics that we, the polite people, are too good to put them out there and try to understand them. It shows life and the reality through jokes and twisted shit that somehow is easier to get than to read a whole book on ethics. You will laugh, you will learn and you will escape the monotony of everyday life through this show. It is like a little vacation to Happyland. A land where you can laugh to anything without being judged by people who try to convince themselves that they are good.

#4 Californication

Hank Moody, the famous writer – playa who dances with a joint in his mouth through life’s twists and turns. The guy who doesn’t give a fuck. That is the outside of the character but the inside, which is the main reason this show is on this list. The inside of Hank Moody, his pure love and righteousness, his courage. He is a character that is deeper than most of the characters ever made. This show makes the clearest difference between sex and love. It shows the depth in our life through very simple and real situations. He loves Karen and his daughter even if they don’t love him, he doesn’t mind because pure love is something you have for someone despite what he feels about you. This show teaches how to truly love and that is one of the most important lessons we need to learn.

#3 Dexter

The world’s most loveable serial killer. First of all, this show has unbelievably good deployed story through seasons. There are no meaningless episodes like in some shows only to give a number of episodes to the season. Every episode has a name that is just the right description of the story and the message. In each season there is something more we discover in the characters, something that is taking us deeper in their mind and soul. This show plays with psychology like no other. The acting is like in no other TV show. The main thing this show is numero 3 is the description of our dark side, “ The dark passenger ”. We all have that darkness inside of us, I don’t know why but I know that there is someone reaching for the wheel once in a while, someone brave enough to say that life is not all rainbows and sunshine like a very wise “ Rocky ” said. This show is also brave enough to show us that dark side, to show us that only good or only bad cannot survive, that we must combine both of them and choose what is right, even if by that we mean to throw a person in a garbage bags in the middle of the ocean.

#2 Lost

There was a dilemma about the 2nd and the 1st place. I wasn’t sure about this show to be 2nd because it is by far, the best mystery, philosophy, character development, awesome sights, drama series that has ever been made.  There were moments in lost that can make you laugh like a crazy psychopath and moments where you will cry like a teenage pussy. The answer that the show is telling us is bigger than all of the questions in the series. The question is what is the meaning of life? What is it? The mother of all questions. The show tells us that the meaning of life is that there is no meaning. That we can choose what it will mean for us. Just like the island. The most important thing in life are not the answers that we search, but the people that we search with. Which is why this show is not nomero uno.

#1 Friends

That is the most important thing in life, friends. The show that is better than any other show, ever! Why? Because through the 10 seasons you will fall in love with the characters so much that the second time you watch the show only 1 thing will flow through you mind. How can I have a life like this with a people like this? In the end of the day life is not about the money you make, or what is the meaning of our existence, or the secret conspiracy theories. At the end of the day, life is about that people who are there on your dinner table and laugh on how you fell off the stairs trying to get home, about the friends that despite all of that bullshit will give their best to keep your friendship alive. Joey, Chandler, Monica, Rachel, Ross and Phoebe are the definition of friends. They show the perfection in life, the simplicity that is the answer to the complicated. Only by watching Friends the world starts to be a better place. My opinion is that if everyone in this world watches friends, there will be no wars. Ever!

A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.

The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions, cease to be mind.

Are you the same person that started reading this?

Are you the same person that started reading this?

 

Everything changes. That’s a fact, but how long do we stay the same? How do we measure when a change starts happening and ends? When is now? Who am I? Who is this dead person laying on the floor? Aaaaaaaa!!!!!

These questions bring us to the very beginning of time. To what is the limit for smallest and biggest? The hardest thing in answering these questions is that we are the tool that measures time, not clocks and calendars. Each of us live in a different time set. Sometimes for us time passes quick while for other passes slow, but the time is all the same. It is the effect of time that makes that illusion. So let’s say that a time itself is a change, that means that we perceive change differently therefore it is the effect of change that tells us how much we are changed. That means that we change only when we realize that we change and if we never realize that we change that means that we will never change. Whoa that’s some quantum physics right there!

It’s not quite like that. There is another variable that complicates this process. Other people. They can tell that you are changed even if you don’t realize that at all. Why this happens? It is because other people have a certain image about us in their heads. That image is the way you presented yourself to them in a certain moment or a collection of moments. They build that image by them. When you don’t see each other for a long time they have a gap from their image to the person you are now. They unknowingly realize that gap and compare the changes from their image to you. That is why you are different for them. Changed. What they don’t know is what you have been through that period of time. Maybe you have started a new hobby, maybe something bad or good happened to you that resulted to a chain of events that changed you step by step. You don’t even have to realize that you are changed for someone else to notice. So this means that we change even when we didn’t realize.

What matters is how we see ourselves. Are we changed or not? Do we want to be like we are now or we like to change? Can we actually stay the same for a while? I guess that we are never the same. Our hair grows, our fingernails, our arms, legs, our cells are replaced with new ones, we learn new things, forget old ones… We always change, but it’s the change that we give meaning to that matters. The change that we want to happen, don’t, or that already happened. The image that we have for ourselves is the measurement for the change. We can have an image of what we want to be, of what we are now, of what we don’t want to be. The difference from that image and us is how much we have changed.

So let’s get back to the question “ are we still the same person that started reading this? ”. No. You are not. You now more now. Your hair is a little longer, your nails, some of your cells died, some new ones were born. This is if we see from logical perspective, but if we want an answer that is less logical and more psychological than only by asking ourselves this question we can get the right answer. Only you can answer if you are changed or not. Only you can measure that. I am African now. Fo real man!

Be more creative

“ Creativity is a state of mind ”

 

First we need to do something else. We need to pay 100$ to my bank account. Just kidding. We need to understand creativity. We can never learn how to be more creative if we don’t understand what creativity is. Creativity is crucial in our everyday lives, it can help us solve problems, think of inventions, make money etc. What is that? Creativity. We all know that it exists but none of us have seen it. It is god! Just kidding again. What that means is that we can only feel creativity or see it implemented in our creations. By this we get to realization that creativity is something like feeling, like happiness and that means that some kind of chemical reaction happens in our body when we get creative. The serotonin that our brain produces makes us feel happy but something needs to happen to trigger our brain to produce serotonin. So we ask ourselves do we feel happy because our body produces serotonin or our body produces serotonin because we feel happy. The both of those statements are true. It is the third player that moves all the others. That realization that a warm blanket is waiting for you at home, on a cold winter night. That ” I love you too ” from the person you love. That sound of your bat breaking of someone who you hate. Let’s not get away from the subject. My point is that something needs to happen to make you realize that you are happy. With creativity it’s all the same. Something needs to scratch that magic lamb so the creativity can be awakened. Something needs to put you in that creative state of mind because creativity is a state of mind. We will talk how to trigger and boost that state of mind. How to be more creative? Like happiness, for every person is different but there are always some ways that work for everyone.

  • Change your perspective. Everything you see can be seen differently. Like an image of cube. You can see the cube pointing towards you or pointing away from you. See the objects you see from different angle.

  • Awake the kid in you. There is a kid in all of us. A kid who doesn’t care about what others tell him that he can or can’t do. Wake up the kid that sleeps in you and forget about rules once in a while. Think outside the box.
  • Find what inspires you. What makes you so concentrated that you forget the world around you? What is your muse? What is your passion? You should answer these questions and do all the things that are your answers.
  • Take long walks. When you are walking there is nothing else you can do but think. Think on various of subjects that your mind is obsessed with. With long walks your mind opens and thinks on ideas and solutions that would have never entered your head.

  • Doodle what you are thinking. By doodling the thoughts you have you make them material. Sometimes by looking your doodles you can realize a thought you had that was not that clearly visible in your head. Doodling also opens your thought flow.
  • Eat a bar of chocolate. Chocolate is a happiness booster, of course if you are not a diabetic. It will make you happy and calm and you need to be calm so the quality thoughts can create in your head.

  • Listen to music you enjoy. It will set your mind on thinking in a frequency that is produced by something you enjoy. When you have a mindset like that you will think on things that make you enjoy too and you will drink the water from your creativity well.

  • Take deep breaths for 1 minute. You will get calmer than a monk. Well maybe not that calm but it will surely help your thought flow increase. You will have quality thoughts not that idea blocking, negative thoughts.
  • Exercise outside. Only exercising, even inside can boost your creativity noticeably. Your blood flow to your brain is better and with that your brain functions better. That means more open mind, more ideas, more solutions.
  • Brainstorm. Choose a subject and write everything that passes through your mind for 10 minutes based on that subject. We forget most of our ideas and thoughts and sometimes the ones that matter. With writing them down you don’t have to worry.

  • Eat magic mushrooms. Just kidding, but who knows…

Creativity boosting can be made in a lot of ways, it is different for everyone. For someone long walks could be the key to opening that treasure of creativity. For someone the best results are achieved by doodling. You need to try and see what works the best for you. When you learn how to put yourself in that creative state of mind, your life will start being more magical. Creativity is something much more than just a great idea or something innovative. It can help you get rich, always have fun, solve problems, get the person that you love, find yourself, create art, etc. At least it can help you get the best presents for birthdays. Remember, creativity is like a muscle, you need to work it out to build it. It is a feeling you can train yourself how to feel. It is a state of mind you can put yourself into. Now my good people, go and dive into the well of creativity while I eat some mushrooms.
