In this fast-paced world that we live in today, we’re reeling ahead of ourselves in terms of knowledge, material gains, stress-overload, expectation of oneself, goal-reaching….and knowledge. You see, these days, you can find information about anything under the sun with the internet. I remember one time, I was so stressed out that I ran up Google and ran a search for throat ache and neck pain. I thought I had neck cancer. I thought I had thyroid problem (did a test, came out normal). Then I had these little dots on my leg and I thought I had skin cancer! Walamak…. I am not saying that we should all be blur-blur like me and know nothing but you know what? It’s crazy that a lot of people are struggling to stuff up their grey matter with as much information as possible. I think it’s fine if you want to google up why your poo is purple in color or want to learn to fix your fence but some people just go way beyond that….and it is disturbing. Indifference, my friends, is sometimes bliss. In my personal opinion, it’s OK to find out information through the Internet about things that you’re interested in…like how to draw or paint better. Or how to knit a scarf or how to prevent your plant from dying. But there are people who want to know why galactic formations are the way they are and when the world is going to end? Some people want to find out how to kill insects without ‘killing’ them, how to be a good person without hurting other people, why criminals get away with the things that they do, what is karma and does it really work, why coffee is coffee, why bread is bread, why pen is pen….etc. Too much knowledge can’t be a good thing, can it? Sometimes, I prefer to NOT KNOW about something that I couldn’t give two hoots about. I know of this person who is, like, a walking encyclopedia. He/she has probably read every single book about any topic the human mind can come up with. If you don’t know why it’s NOT raising during the raining season, you can give fler a call…he/she will know. If your kid is having diaper rash, his/her knowledge will help as well….right down to butt-massaging techniques that can help prevent future itchy episodes. I may be a little blur about some things but I am not blue about it. Personally, I’d rather be blur and blissful than knowledgeable yet insane.
Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?' ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'. Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling. So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto
