The perfect mediocrity

The Killing:

You have not yet learned that in life you have to be like everyone else. The perfect mediocrity; no better, no worse. Individuality is a monster and it must be strangled in its cradle to make our friends feel confident. You know, I have often thought that gangsters and artists are the same in the eyes of the masses. They are admired and hero-worshipped, but there is always present an underlying wish to see them destroyed at the peak of their glory.

    Great video and track…I’m sure I’ve jumped into that cloud (iCloud) in World of Warcraft!
    Very cool.

    I’ve never been a fun of Kubrick’s films but he does have thought-provoking themes. Interesting quote from “The Killing” – losing your individuality to please others and in the process, hating them because of it. It happens all the time but the challenge is for us to go above this “herd mentality”.
