The Many Works of Pat Hatt
In the hum drum world where the 9-5 rules and doing things not in the play by play of some guideline set out by those with a stick placed firmly up a certain place, doesn’t it seem like imagination is gone by the wayside? People are way too caught up with the little things that they no longer know any other way. Sure, we need those with a stick to keep things organized, but that doesn’t mean the stick needs to be so far buried up there that imagination becomes abolished.
Maybe that is what is wrong with so called “society” now a days. It has become all about the all mighty dollar. Not that it has ever not been about the all mighty dollar mind you. Well maybe when cavemen were around and just pelting rocks at each other for fun. But other than that, it sure has been throughout history. The more time drags on the more obsessed people have become with the all mighty dollar and imagination dies the more obsessed they get.
Just look at Hollywood now a days. There is about as much imagination there as I find in the litterbox every morning. Remake after remake after remake. And they usually aren’t remakes to movies that were awful and need a remake. Nope, they remake the stuff with a name to it that was good the first time around. They remake it so horrible that you’d be better off staring at the wall for two hours.
Then you know you have doctors who are unable to see past their little text book. If it wasn’t written out all nice and neat for them, then they don’t know what to do. They just get that deer in the headlights look and tell you everything is normal. Any part of their brain with imagination has long since died off. This leaves them getting paid per patient and it leaves the patient still left in misery. They get the money they set out to get and leave a big screw you to everyone else.
There is always an exception to the rule of course and I could go on forever in a day, but I’ll save you the eye ache of reading a 10,000 word post. Hey, now you can use your imagination to think up what else I would have posted.
That brings me to the image above, Max Blizzard and The Gem of Camelot. My newly released novel where the very idea of no imagination was the basis for the book. What would happen if there was no imagination at all in the world? It would be a pretty dreary place. So I set out to explore that a bit and use Camelot, King Arthur, Merlin and many other myths and legends within the story.
Do you think imagination is dying? Do you think greed wins out? Are you a fan of crummy remakes? Take a look at Max Blizzard and The Gem of Camelot yet?
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
