I recently viewd the movie, "Birdman," (2014).  It is a very good movie, which I gave a B-, if I remember correctly.  Too bad I don't do many movie reviews anymore.  Well, the full title of this movie is, "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)."

Today, I was paging through my Morrissey / Smiths tag, (recommended!), and I found a 2011 entry, entitled, "on the necessity of ignoring reality." It's an entry worth reading again.

I just thought the similarity was interesting.  Both titles are basically saying and meaning the same thing.  You need ignorance to get you through reality.  It is a relatively unique idea.  I put it into the Noosphere in 2011, and it came back in a 2014 film.  More or less. I've seen that sort of thing happen several times. Whether some idea was stolen, inspired directly, inspired obscurely, or shared psychically - this is something we often can never really figure out. I have seen people say or do things, thinking themselves completely original, when I could actually see the external stimuli which were triggering their reactions or trains of thought. Yet even Pavlov's dogs were acting willfully. It's all the same thing, really. Life, by hook or by crook.

A local music radio-show almost always features terrible lead singers, sometimes fronting pretty good bands. I am now listening to a not-so-great band being lead by a guy with excellent pitch and falsetto - a low country sort of voice. Band: "The Bare Handbones," or something. Show is via WNIJ - NOT YET POSTED - https://www.northernpublicradio.org/topic/sessions-studio.
