If you remember a while back, we did a segment here on SDMcKinley.com called Friday Fun Links and now it has evolved into Friday Fun Trifecta, where I will feature one thing of each – music, book and visual arts. Welcome to Friday Fun Trifecta #3, where I share some appreciation for artwork.
Spawn, Todd McFarlane and I go way back, all the way to the release of Spawn #1. McFarlane really has done some great things for the comic and toy industry; what he did was groundbreaking, in turn breaking the mold of what these mediums can and should do. He was often rejected because of his ideas, but he held strong to them and I love that. Hold strong to your beliefs, guys and gals:
I can’t remember where I found mention of this book as essential reading, but what an important topic to explore!
“But let there be no misunderstanding: it is not that a real man, the object of knowledge, philosophical reflection or technological intervention, has been substituted for the soul, the illusion of theologians. The man described for us, whom we are invited to free, is already in himself the effect of a subjection more profound than himself. A ‘soul’ inhabits him and brings him to existence, which is itself a factor in the mastery that power exercises over the body. The soul is the effect and instrument of a political anatomy; the soul is the prison of the body.” ― Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison[ Quote Source: Good Reads ]
Sometimes music without words is what my soul desires with no specific message, for peace and tranquility or in aid to great concentration and / or sleeping music. If this type of music fancies you, be sure to explore the description of this video with links to all the wonderful artists in this compilation @ SoundCloud.com.
Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley
