Video

I giggled the entire way through this.

I love that this relies on our collective understanding of ballet as an unforgiving pursuit of synchronization, cleanliness and unison. I had a friend in college, a percussionist, who said that someone was only ever really talented at their craft once they could tell jokes not about it, but with it. And he could, reliably, tell very funny “jokes” using only his drum set–no words, no funny faces–because he knew what about Drums™ people understood and took for granted and expected. He could hint at those expectations and then very suddenly and expertly deny them, producing the kind of cognitive shift that causes people to laugh. This ballet video very much reminds me of him, and his idea: that there is a level of craft beyond just being good at doing the thing. You also have to understand what the general public understands as the mark of goodness within the thing. Only then are you capable of subverting it, whether that be for humor, commentary, innovation, whatever.

as-howarth said: Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?

I guess I am both happy and sad.

I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.

But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.

Sam Pepper

edwardspoonhands:

So I didn’t make any official statement about Sam Pepper until today because I had a feeling that he was up to what I refer to as “shenanigans.” I figured that if I posted something and then he threw a curve ball, it would make whatever I said feel empty because it would have been condemning him…
