First of all if you have a creative bone in your body that’s a good thing. Rankings are harsh but a reality in the blogging world. A bark is heard more than a whimper, and any argument with good sound bites and phrases win. Research is not needed, just an all or nothing combative stance.
Without further words here are mallisonwhat’s ranking of creative types!
Artists go back for a long a time, and there are museums to preserve the history. People take years of practice and dedication to create captivating images. Technology has changed everything and has impacted art. With media, movies, and live feed I’m not sure that a single image has the impact it once had.
Also what I don’t like about modern art is that it depends so much on the whims of the rich with sales of single or limited pieces for large amounts. Artists seem to rely on the one-percenters more than other creative forms. That might be an ignorant stance on my part, and if anyone has a good art history book for me to read, I will.
Writing has been around a long time too. But modern writing, or the novel form only goes back to the 1800’s, before that it was mostly poetry form. Writing is my creative outlet, and it has positive benefits. Reading is important, but becoming less so. Working in a bookstore and then libraries I’m always amazed that when bestselling books become movies so many more people watch the movie.
Reading, and writing is better than doing nothing, but it does not have the societal impact it once had. There are many brilliant adults with high paying careers that don’t read any novels at all. Probably the best writers work in the television or movie industry where their stories impact more people.
2. Television and Movie Makers
In the last decade the television series industry has gone off the hook. In a library system it’s hard to keep up with purchasing all the television series on DVD. And movies, even with overpriced popcorn, are as popular as ever. Movies take novel plot structures, acting, music, and visuals to create an experience. It is a difficult industry to break into but hundreds of people work on each high level production. The only two senses missing from movies are touch and smell.
Film production has only been around since the early 1900’s and is the future. Instead of reading books one is socially better off being knowledgeable on movies and television. That trend will only become more so.
1. The Music Makers
They are called rock stars for a reason, because they put a soundtrack to life. Before recording technology there may have been more musicians, and a show would be an event at a town hall or tribal village. Recording quickly made one hit wonders, and a mass appeal. In the 1960’s there was advancement in technology and that changed the sound of music. Online downloading has made it difficult to be a musician. They don’t get paid much unless they make it big. But on youtube there are music videos with over a billion views, and getting over a million views is common for music videos. So many views points that musicians have the biggest impact on society today.
What creative ambitions did I forget? What do you disagree with? From now on I’m going to be more opinionated, and write these quicker! It’s the only way.
