School is for BLANK

You probably didn't know that I dropped out of school in the 3rd grade... I would start every year after that but if the teachers and curriculum didn't interest me I would stop going... If you want to know more about that read this book I'm in chapter 3... check that out if you want to know what a young M dot Strange did with police and vaseline...and its not what you think haha

But anyway I stumbled upon this great lecture about what is wrong with the education system in regard to creativity...



I didn't know it when I was a child... but when I was in school something told me that if I stayed there something would break inside of me... now I can be called a lot of horrible and crazY things but you cannot say that I am NOT creative and I KNOW that my creativity survived to adulthood only because I wasn't subjected to the school system.

So if your in a situation where "they" or "it" is trying to break you... you MUST do whatever you can to protect that special thing inside of you because that thing is the only thing that will save you from the despair of this system...it is the only thing that will allow you to connect with others and fight back... ^ ^

Now are you seeing the end of WATS differently... the childish doll Emmm keeps his heart intact... and with the help of technology he throws it into the darkness which allows his previously oppressed ally Blue from striking the authority where it hurts..thereby stopping "the game"

I'm going to throw my heart into the darkness and its up to YOU to hit the system... but even if you don't I'll piece my machine back together and do what needs to be done.

But what am I saying? I'm just some grown man that plays with dolls and freestyles alone in the dark for hours about being gay in a 1950's way...

  1. Thanks for the video Mike! It really resonated with me (as you know, I had no tollerance for school either).

    You should check out this d00d;

    He expands on a lot of the stuff that Ken Robinson was talking about. Check out the links - there's quite a few mp3s of his talks etc.
