The thing about Russell Brand

Don’t get me wrong I love a great mind, I love a bipolar, and I know one when I see one. The man can surely talk as if he was vaccinated with a gramophone needle for sure and his 78 RPM could certainly be tuned down to 33.

Anyway he talks about an awful lot and no one could really put up with his manic state for too long but this editing video about transcendental meditation and yoga is dizzying to say the least, not to mention the annoying new age music in the background.

Why O Why can’t we just listen to words? 
Why do we have to add editing music like if life was a movie and we all needed a soundtrack behind every move and word?

Anyway this “new” oriental thing is not new at all and like always people rally behind celebrities’ fad. Remember the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and what a fraud it all was?

Nothing new under the sun and like Paul Simon says we hear what we want to hear and disregard the rest.  Yoga and meditation fans will USE Russell Brand to support their twist too.  

Some of us want to use some of us want to be abused blah blah blah.

Russell could never convince anyone for long anyway as manic is too high to follow for most and too convoluted to keep up with. I should know.

The thing about oriental also is that they rarely present us with the full context of old strange beliefs in elephant gods and blue Krishna lying and the million strange legends we are unfamiliar with which are just as senseless and irrational as our western legends of water into wine and resurrections and what not.

Try to study the Upanishads for a while and let me know.

 I have mentioned this many a times but that is basically it. 

Russell is cute and all and different and let us all  be different  but then again let us all be aware too, aware that we cannot know and that we are apes, a form of life like any others that knows nothing at all about life except that we are alive for a very short time.

End of a short story before I turn into Russell Brand myself! J
