Learn anything in 5 minutes! How bout NO!

If yer a PONY that only wants to learn how to do TRICKS... yes 5 minutes is GREAT... BUT if you actually want to really LEARN how to do something and NOT just COPY someone else to get the EXACT SAME result they got... well then... NO.

Pony as in "one trick pony" of course but nowadays we have lots of 20 trick ponies running around...

I'm referring to 3d animation/filmmaking/visual fx... and the plethora of COPY THIS "tutorials" out there...

Of course this has to do with instant gratification vs. delayed gratification... humans are conditioned to want RESULTS NOW... they demand instant gratification in EVERYTHING (see premature ejaculation haha)... but the results always leaves the trickster feeling empty after the instant gratification wears off... (and you won't be the most sought after sexual partner either haha)

You learn a trick from someone else... you do it... instant gratification.... then you run around looking for more tricks... more buttons to press to make shiny things appear... why not spend the time to learn what happens when you press the button so you can develop your own tricks? OH YEH the instant gratification thing...

So lots of people make lots of money creating and selling buttons for the lil ponies to press... now if you don't want to be a TOY...

TOYAn inexperienced or incompetent writer. Someone whose writing is either wack, who uses sucker tips, or whose style is just plain cheesy. One old definition of "TOYS" is that it stands for "trouble on your system".

If you DON'T want to be a toy... then slow down...take a deep breath and use your mind... you are NOT a COPY machine... you are NOT a robot... you are a creative individual so ACT LIKE ONE... or else keep pressin them buttons making other people rich and creating nothing original yourself.

Remember if all you do is copy... you'll be like the millions of other people who copy the same stuff... expendable... forgettable... obsolete... dead....and if you think you can copy BUT make it HAWTER! SHINIER! FASTER! NEWER! or whatever ....you're playing the same lame ass game Hollywood plays with its remakes and re-imaginings... you're all destined to die in the new world.
