Every morning I wake up looking for some awesome stuff online, whether articles, videos on Youtube or just fascinating stuff people have shared. Today, these videos made my morning. Youtube is being so amaze today, it’s just awesome!
First up is a brilliant piece of editing, where someone has mashed up the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey with Tame Impala’s song “Eventually”. I have to say, this is just spectacular, wow! This guy has seamlessly made the cosmic, psychedelic sounds of Tame Impala go amazingly well with cuts from the movie. Especially the middle sequence where the space ship is travelling through a worm hole/black hole or whatever, bending space and time, with colours flying around everywhere and the best part is that is goes in sync with each guitar flick ! This is quite mind blowing. So have a watch.
And of course the kings of the alternative rock universe are back with a little video thingy which is quite breathtaking. I love the song on the album. But this video with the two geniuses Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood playing, just make it even more appealing to watch. Here is my favourite band – Radiohead with Present Tense. Wow! Somebody please explain to me how they’re so good? And Thom’s little mini dance for a few seconds just sets the mood for the lyrics of this song. It’s such an intimate video and so perfectly shot. Prepare to play this on repeat multiple times.
Also to end this post I came across a little quote by Galileo. He said, “Eppur Si Muove” which means “And yet it moves”. These 3 words have so much meaning if you really think about it. It is a statement describing Galileo’s life’s work. In proving that the Earth does in fact revolve around the sun, Galilieo proved the Church and other scholars wrong and for this he was perhaps imprisoned. This quote is historically extremely significant and Galileo was one of the few men who was very ahead of his time in his thinking and his work Also it is such a philosophical statement because in the end the Earth keeps moving and life keeps going on. We don’t even thing about it but no matter what happens to us on this planet, all our joy and suffering, all of the wars and destruction, all of the crimes and mishaps, everything that occurs is so inconsequential in the grander scheme of things. Compared to the Cosmos we are nothing, not even a speck in the universe. And yet we hold on to everything worldly so dearly and get sucked into everything occurring on this planet. Why should we have egos and think of ourselves as all conquering and powerful? There is no need for this. All of your suffering comes from attaching yourself to this world and it’s people, of course that is what makes us human but there is no need to attach ourselves to our world so much when there is a universe out there and our planet is just a tiny little fraction of it.
As Carl Sagan said, “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
No matter what happens, life goes on, time goes forward. Things get better. No matter what you are going through always remember, “Eppur si muove”…… “And yet it moves”
Cosmic stuff right here. Hope you enjoyed it.
Have a great weekend 😀
