There’s a belief out there. Someone believes, “The average internet user has the attention span of a Goldfish.” — Think about this for a second. Some person, not only with the understanding that not all mankind is created or grows equally but, with the understanding that they are likely similar if they can ‘judge’ such a metric against their own existence; this person believes that other people, in general, have no dexterity beyond flopping around needlessly, endlessly, and devotedly upon the world-wide-web with no other interpretation other than to eventually “die”, sans oxygen, per the form of a device/vice called, “The Internet.”
Eh, you’re right…”we’re” over-reacting…..
But, let’s think about something for one quick second?!
Let’s think about the things most utilized on this “Internet” for a moment. What do we have? We have:
…and what else??
Those are the basics, a.k.a., most widely known networks in the “mainstream” conscious.
Here’s a thought:
Nearly everything that goes big like Facebook is a product of mass-marketing, and if something is built to be mass-marketed then you can make both educated and uneducated guesses that for the most part, anything built to thrive upon a mass-market is likely (and typically), an “average” product or byproduct.
There isn’t a large middle-ground for debate usually, and it’s primarily because, the items that are created, built, or deployed for mass-appeal are safe and often indistinguishable.
So, if “we” say, “Well, the internet is actually just an average product for average people and doesn’t really go beyond the paradigm of average,”–well–“you” can pretty much summarize that our statement is, “average”, at best…?
While we have “our own” problems with the Internet (mostly encased in issues of fair reporting and fair monetizing abroad), we tend to think that the Internet is more like a game of Billiards. — Many people step-up to the table but some people just DOMINATE the game.
If we call what we do a “job” then “our job” ultimately is to “make art”, period; no more, no less.
For us, YES, we consider a ton of items average and merely to be more points-of-distribution for our creations (and sometimes borrowed materials) but no matter what, no matter where you look or how you attempt to discover more and more things to be interested in or learn about, somewhere, a ton of times and usually where unexpected, you’ll find amazing and average, intertwined, ad nauseam…
Yes…Feel Their Suffering Young Jedi…..
An Average Song With A Slightly, Above-Average Rendition…?
Really Just A Classic But Also A Much Needed Reminder For Times Like Now.
(And of course, some of our stuff)…
