I should tell the kids to drop a comically large weight on my head once i start to aggressively defend my stance on „everything was better when tv was black & white“.
Interesting to witness how some marketing/monetization gags still work. In this case a certain edition of an album by a YouTube personality contained a phone number he deemed to be his personal one. In the end it is just the means to connect to a WhatsApp-bot that sends you infos a few seconds before it does on other social media plattforms, but for my Niece the illusion still stands.
I’ve never called the hotlines of yhe equivalent of YouTube personalities back in my day, but would spend hours with calling book- and toystores, so i would not make the trip there for nothing. It took me two days to track down a book about cats until i found a used copy that helped soothe my musical craze when i was nine.
Explaining Karma to a kid wasn’t an easy task.
The best i came up with was, that it can be seen as a boomerang that might bring back the intent with which you threw it.
It is frustrating when people just put a smartphone in their kids hands without proper education about what is an Apple ID/Google Account, and what responsibilities come with them.
I wasn’t able to try and clear that up with a headache that releyed my heartbeat to my teeth.
The Wife guided a tour through the egypt section of the museum of cultural history for the kids in her care. The little ones were amazed and built a pyramid out of cardboard. Interiours are on tomorrow’s schedule.
I wonder if they’ll try and mummify crocodiles too.
It is a struggle for me to find my own voice; in this case in photography. Sometimes, it seems that to achieve what i have in mind, i have to modulate another voice i like on top of mine, and then gradually come back into what i think is my own to add the qualities it lacked.
I often think about if this approach is an insult to genuine creativity and exploration. Emulating something works most of the time, but exploring and perhaps failing is also an experience that enrichens ones process.
Or i’ll just sign my work with „genuine hack“ from now on.
Also, i’m delighted and frightened by how enthusiastic my Nieces are about returning to school after their mid-term holidays.
There is a local saying that can loosely be translated to „Kids and drunk people usually say the truth.“
I was called „a nice Krampus“ by the kid of the Wife’s co-worker.
I’m sorry to go off topic, but the Iron Fist trailer had me stand up and shout „YES!“. This might be a mess, but it will be a glorious, glowing wreckage.
