In this rampant atheism that possesses me. It takes some voices and minds to seek solace, light.
Three oracles that have me talking about what they have said for some time now are Neil Gaiman, Seth Godin and Jason Silva.
Neil Gaiman, storyteller. Fantastic. Narrator of the fantastic. From their books, even their interviews are loaded with everything that can break reality. How to see the everyday with magic.
Seth Godin will say too, author, inspirational. Marketero empernido del marketing of emotions. Inexhaustible advisor. Half of what it says is a checklist for the survival of communication in the 21st century.
Slavoj Žižek. Philosopher, cultural critic, acid and contemporary analyst. Recognized for his didactic examples with films; But it is much more than a consumer of junk culture. Žižek uses tools of Lacan's psychoanalysis to seek answers to social behavior, capitalism and expressions of power.
There TEDtalks That leave the head spinning. To which one often returns to hear with attention.
TEDtalks are the contemporary informational pill format. Some are viral y false. Others touch deep fibers. There are three authors who manage to touch these fibers with premises that seem obvious, but which we ignore with ease.
1. Jon Ronson. Writer, English, journalist, interested in Chronicles of limit and absurd places; Talks about how we judge others by their most perverse edges.
2. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. writer, Nigerian, who remembers how we all have a story more complex than that abstracted and diluted abstraction that we believe are stereotypes.
3. Taiye Selasi. writer, Afropolita, daughter of a Nigerian father and Ghanaian mother, born in London, raised in Boston, who lives between New York and Delhi. It comes to question where our identity comes from.
Multiple layers. Nothing is as simple as it seems.
Sheila Daviswrote“The craft of lyric writting"After evaluating thousands of songs of other composers; Doing a kind of institutional tutoring. There is no other place where the structures of Pop are defined more clearly and the function of each part of the song as in his book.
(I did not find anywhere a picture of Sheila Davis ... if they have one, they always welcome it)
