My view exactly, but do not forget that if something good becomes popular, then it somehow becomes less good.


Wonder if thats why there such a negative view amongst some that nothing is good anymore?

I wonder if we can divide this subject up a little to throw some more light on the matter.

We have taste about something or some action taken which we might simplify down to be discussed as the subject.

The subject can be created by a person/s or as the result of human actions OR
it can be created by nature, God call the process what you will.

I can't fathom the intentions of nature or God however I do think the intentions of the creator of a 'subject' is part of the taste equation.

I suspect but can't prove that the motivation of people who create 'subject' matter which others approve or disapprove of has changed, or at least the % of 'subject' matter that is created, to say "look at what I have done, pay me some attention" has increased - sometimes it is just about money but I think the social media process demonstrates the cry for personal attention that occurs where money is not involved.

Is this just a modern channel for something that has always existed?
Maybe or maybe we have become more desirous of individual attention and less happy to be just part of the tribe/village etc.

This post may be just written to prove the point.

Why do we need taste as long as we can sell it?

Thanks - its appreciated, though I have to admit the little planet is just a "me too" thing I tried once.

I think uniqueness is mostly delusion - few people achieve it - most just think they have.
I aim for relevant and leave the phantasy to others.

I for one liked your "me too" image - well done, I say.

I sort of am oriented more towards identity than uniqueness.
I try to do my thing and not force myself to be original.
I personally believe this pays back on the long run.
And yes ... trying to have fun doing that!

Or if it becomes popular it wasn't that good to begin with.

Just because something may not appeal to you, does not make it bad.
