Video: Put this in perspective

12/19/2008:

Ever since the advent of the internet – the amount of “print” reading I’ve done has practically been non-existent!

Alan Watts is a great read

However, if you look on the modest bookshelf I do have in my home, you’ll notice quite a few books from author Alan Watts (Amazon.com).

Alan Watts’ work was brilliant and timeless in my opinion. Books published over 50 years ago still have incredible relevance (you almost can’t tell the era they were written it!)

Life and Music

Below is a video (Watts audio clip + animation by the South Park guys) – that should help you put things into perspective – especially if you’re the type of person that is so overwhelmed with the “corporate” (and life) ladder.

Enjoy!

Great clip. I’m not familiar with Watts.

As Mooshu said, George Carlin, especially over last couple years, was making this point (louder and louder) with each concert.

That was great.

There are a lot of people who just won’t get it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this. It’s a shame that Parker and Stone had to illustrate it for some. But, hey, the animation was still pretty damn funny!

P.S. I will check out Watts. But you’ve just reminded me of the many, many reasons why I’ve loved, love and will always love George Carlin, among the biggest “rebels” of all! 😆
