Be Different

A great post from Jacob about having true passion in your life and not getting sucked into crazes. This really makes you think about the psychology of things like the Harlem Shake…something I never thought I’d be doing!

Have you ever wondered where all of the crazes come from? The crazes which I’m referring to are the one hit wonders, the mass movements which society feels like they’re obligated to participate in. Remember the Harlem Shake? Where people would go nuts in a small room, wearing animal masks and behaving as if they were on some sort of drug.  (Some people actually got married to the Harlem Shake I believe?)

Then after the Harlem Shake there was that annoying “Selfie” song which was about teenage girls deciding on what filter to use for their next photo. You see these mass movements are what the zombies (the people with no ambitions in life) are craving. They wake up with the hope of finding something which will make them cool for ten seconds and then it’s back to their same old lifestyle of trying to find the next cool thing.
