Books And Arts About Human

If an extraterrestrial comes to me and ask me for introduction about human, I’ll be surprised. He (OK, I don’t know how to call that intelligent being) literally run into me and speak to me as if it is totally fine in terms of so many conspiracy theories on earth like Mars attacks Earth that cover bad reputations over them. That being said, I should pretend I am cool and recommend some great books and arts that human tell about their own stories.

The first book comes into my mind is The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. When I started to read that book recommended by some smart people, I was totally astonished by the very new thoughts which describe our inherent genes being self-centred and take what they take. If you wanna start learning about human, start from the inside nature. Here I should stress a point that don’t be misled by the name of the book, it is a way of metaphor, the genes act like a selfish man but in fact they are unintentional.

Then you wanna learn the history of human from thousands of years ago to current time. There is an old saying from Chinese:”Take history as a mirror “, history is important, not only for our human being, but also gives views to aliens. Learn the birth and doom of civilizations, study the life of ancient people in different periods, research how the history was going on and predict the future, those would make something clear.

I am not sure there would be just one movie that conclude all human society and behaviors, it’s better to watch several great movies. What I recommend include Wall E, Forrest Gump, Mary and Max and so on. Those movies cover several themes of human, such as love, future, striving, history, confusion, degeneration, different, imperfection, intelligent and more. There is no one word that would declare what is human about.

As for songs, all pop song lists don’t count. Instead listen to light music, especially New Age music will give you some clews about what is the real art of human.

Well, I think that’s it, that alien life would at least not get himself lost in this new world to him according my recommendations. But what I really want to say is, taking me away with you, please, I’d like to see the wonderful stars and galaxies in universe.

“Yesterday Once More” Once More

When finished the newest prompt topic by heart, the first lyric of song came to my mind is from Yesterday Once More by co-authors Richard Carpenter and John Bettis,

Lookin’ back on how it was
In years gone by
And the good times that I had
Makes today seem rather sad
So much has changed.

This piece really make me a little welling up every time I heart the song, because it really tells the story of mine.

You must listen this if you never done this before!

This song was first heart by me in my high school time, back that time, almost every day every classroom played this hit song through radios. And I just thought, “wow, what a great song!”, I really liked the melody and the singer’s voice, but for the lyric part, I was totally naive in today’s view.

Now I have finished my grown-up job, almost hit thirty years old, I have new feelings about the lyric. The words are simple, but sometimes all the beautiful emotions and thoughts can be expressed into a few sentences and make its speaking. It just simply touch the deep soul of mine, cause the eyes filled with tears.

Thank goodness there are so many good songs out there, I just can’t imagine a world without melodies and rhymes.

Friends Theme Song

So no one told you life was gonna be this way

I’ll be there for you –  Friends theme song – see lyric

So no one told you life was gonna be this way, and the most saddest part is I have no idea too. This song really tells the truth about how our life suck, and yet we have to live and live better. And luckily, we get our own best friends, and we will have nice stories between us, and we’ll share and tell those nice moments to our offspring.

Life is surely difficult, but we gonna play the game, or we’ll lose. Friends are the best product on this world, with them, we can be better men, we can face together the life. We get courage to live on, we share everything. when we at our worst, friends would cheer we up, no matter you’ve lost, you never lose your friends.

Life continues its way, no one can intervene absolutely. However, our friends are the gravy boats, they add so many different taste on our daily diet. You should listen the song, it rocks.

After all, this is another daily prompt due to opening lines.
