信息量并非知识

越来越多人讲究信息量, 你炒股需要信息量, 做生意需要信息量, 搞活动要信息量. 但这里所指信息量大部分只和钱挂钩. 你需要的只是暂时的一个月或者一个星期之内有效的信息, 过了这个时间这些都变成垃圾.

所以你的信息量并没法构成你的人生, 或者让你思考得出结论, 它只驱使你去做一些事情. 这些事情的意义则另外讨论(大部分不见得有意义). 你把一生放在追求信息量和钱上, 最后也就是社会机器的一个小零件, 或者你已经适应了做一个小零件. 现在网上有最大最重复时效最短最垃圾的信息, 每个人都可以泡在上面猎奇. 你每一秒都是新鲜的, 每一秒都在死掉.死之前你回忆人生大概满脑子都是过期信息, (哦我忘了还有亲情友情唱k打麻将这种人性的东西).

但很多信息也是可以转化成知识和其他有意义, 谁也不能不接受信息, 只是不应该把追求信息数量作为生活. 要对信息有选择. 当然选择的话钱会变少. 终归让你放弃信息量就好像放弃钱一样, 说到头还是老样子.

Information is not knowledge. People think that the one who get lots of information will be success, but success don’t have a standard definition. What they talk about is just cash, pussy and power.

In my opinion, success is to make a persistent impact, even after you die. So I might not interest in information, but mind instead. I can make it slowly and finally there will be a huge idea comes out, for which will not be done by most of the modern people.

Talking Heads – Once in a Lifetime

Once in a Lifetime” is a song by Talking Heads, from their album Remain in Light. Written by David Byrne and Brian Eno, it was named one of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century by National Public Radio.

Lyrics

The verses of the song consist of David Byrne speaking rather than singing. With the lyrics “Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down,” the song has an existential vibe to it, although it is usually interpreted to be a song dealing with the midlife crisis and the inevitable sacrifice of youthful ideals and dreams for conventional success:

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!

The main portion of the lyric is said to be based on a preacher heard on the radio by Byrne and Eno while they were driving through New York.

Music video

The music video features a bespectacled David Byrne dancing much like a marionette. The choreography was done by Toni Basil, famous for her hit song “Mickey“. Byrne is shown making sudden flings of his arm, tapping his head, and getting on his hands and knees to pat the floor, much like simple tricks which can be done with actual marionettes. In the background, Byrne dances in perfect synchronisation; in the foreground, a larger Byrne is getting further and further out of synch. Some of Byrne’s mannerisms (such as physical spasms, unfocussed eye movements, and sharp intakes of breath) were inspired by choreographer Basil showing him footage of epilepsy sufferers. The video is noted for being exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art.

Pet Shop Boys – Being Boring

Music Video

The video, the first by fashion-photographer Bruce Weber, totally in black and white, shows a house party and begins with a nude swimmer and a message: “I came from Newcastle in the North of England. We used to have lots of parties where everyone got dressed up and on one party invitation was the quote ‘she was never bored because she was never boring’. The song is about growing up – the ideals that you have when you’re young and how they turn out”.

Live

In spite of the track’s moderate commercial success, “Being Boring” has been a regularly-played song at concerts and is widely considered amongst the greatest, most beautiful Pet Shop Boys songs by fans. Ironically, due to various factors (including it being hard to sing), initially it wasn’t performed on 1991’s Performance Tour; this led to many fans, including Axl Rose of hard rock group Guns N’ Roses, complaining of its omission. It was however added as an encore late in the tour with the band commenting that it “invariably got the best reception of the night”
