Every Dan and Phil video in the London Apartment in order

I made a list of every single Dan and Phil video that they have uploaded since they first moved into their, (now old), London apartment. I have left out any YouTube Red videos but have included videos from all 6 channels, (danisnotonfire, AmazingPhil, danisnotinteresting, LessAmazingPhil, DanandPhilGAMES and DanandPhilCRAFTS).

If you think the order is wrong or any of the links are incorrect please let me know and I will try to correct it.

(I spent WAY too much time on this but oh well)

だって日本の画人たちは自分たちのテクニックを体系化して形式化して
くれなかったんだもん。
結局、最終的に技法を全部整理して「色彩学」あるいは「絵画学」として集成して誰にでも学べる形式知にしてくれたのは西洋人だから、日本画に無知でもしょうがないじゃん。
日本のアーティストどもは、最後まで「学(-ology)」という形にしてくれなかった。
だから、最終的には西洋から学ぶしかなかった。

和算だって、似たようなところあるよね。
関孝和っていう超天才が居たけど、結局、誰も数学を作らなかった。
算術、超凄い個人技としての天才の発想はあったけど、それをまとめてシステムとして全体化しなかった。
おかげで、関孝和以降の算術はむしろ関よりレベルが下がった。なぜかっつーと関くんも、自分は超天才で頭良かったけど、教科書をかかなかったからね。
弟子も書かなかった。
だーれも、知識をシステム化、体系化して客観性のある形にしなかった。

日本の最高に悪い癖の一つが、どんな凄い職人芸や超人でも、「そいつだけの超凄い個人技」で終わるトコ。
誰にも共有できない天才の境地だから、そいつが死ぬと終わり。
この点、絵画にせよ数学にせよ、天才のやったことを技法として残して学問という形にした西洋が、最終的には俺らの知識体系になって和算や日本美術が俺らの知識体系に残らないのは当然じゃなかろか。

西洋の絵画は、システマティックな技法、誰にでも学べる体系としての学問を残した。
日本の絵画は、凄かったけど、誰も、それを整理して学校でカリキュラムとして教えられる形にはまとめなかった。
実際、西洋には美術の「手引書」があるけど、日本にはないよね。デッサンの仕方、写実画のかきかた、投影点の作り方、それをすべて、西洋は「システム」にして、誰にでも学べる「知識」として整理した。
そりゃ圧勝するだろ。

体系化といえば空海だな
日本は「学」ではなく「道」とするのが好きなとこがあって、
それはそれでいい部分もあるんだけど、
伝統とか保護の話になると弊害が多い

brendanhykes  asked:

What about a book written about a song? Are there copyright issues there?

I just googled for a review of a book about a song, and discovered myself in the final paragraph, which was most odd. But here’s the review: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/10/books/the-holy-or-the-broken-by-alan-light.html

And no, there aren’t… BUT there are copyright issues if you quote lyrics of a song without permission. 

When I wrote American Gods I had to get a lot of permissions to quote from things; you can read the saga at http://journal.neilgaiman.com/search/label/quotes if you start at the bottom. At the time it cost me $890 and a really nice sushi dinner for Greg Brown. (When we went into ebook editions I had to pay everyone again, and need to find Greg Brown once more and feed him more sushi.)

8月20日本欄「子の命名に見る“くらし”の喪失」を読んで、

今の時代の親心を伝えたくなりました。

私の2人の子の名前も 「龍空(りく)」 「未光(みかる)」 で、

ほとんどの人は読めません。

けれども、そのお陰で子供たちは先生方から「何て読むの?」と聞かれ、

その度に自分の名を張り切って答えているそうです。

「パパとママがつけてくれたの!」と誇らしげに言って。

世界でたった一つの宝物(子供)に世界でたった一つの名前を付けたくて、

懸命に本を何冊も読んで考えました。「皆と同じ、皆がするのが正しい」

ではなく、「自分の気持ちを大切にしていくことが大事」、そんな気持ちが

子供たちの名に託されているんだと思います。

祈りも希望もたくさん込められています。

人生の先輩、先生方、子供たちに「何て読むの?」と聞いてください。

誇らしげな顔が返ってくると思います。

これを貼れと言われた気がした。

お寺の名前や、その他の様々な物に名前を付けるとき、昔の人は、何も考えずに、
ただありのままに、わかりやすく付けたものだ。最近になって、よく考えたのか
どうか知らないが、小細工したことを見せつけるように付けた名前は嫌らしい。
人の名前にしても、見たことのない珍しい漢字を使っても、まったく意味がない。

どんなことも、珍しさを追求して、一般的ではないものをありがたがるのは、
薄っぺらな教養しかない人が必ずやりそうなことである。

TOP 10 UNPLEASANT FACTS ABOUT JOHN LENNON

When you’ve essentially been canonized as a modern secular saint, there’s no way to not be overrated to one degree or another, but in the case of the legendary John Lennon, the gap between the idol people worship and the real person is so enormous, and the accolades that come his way so over the top, that it’s impossible not to try and mitigate the damage to some degree. The truth is, many people – young and old – all over the world model their lives and beliefs after the Lennon icon, and they really, really shouldn’t. Here’s why:

10. Wife Beater

There’s simply no way of disputing this: the revered icon of peace and love had a serious problem with violence against women. This has been documented all the way back to his Liverpool days, and he eventually admitted it himself later in life. His first wife Cynthia and his second, Yoko Ono, were both victims of Lennon’s brutality at one point or another, and given that most men who beat their spouses or girlfriends regularly are not particularly discriminating about the object of their violence, it’s frankly impossible that they were the only ones. It seems clear in hindsight that the gentle icon the hippies worship was actually a man with very serious psychological problems who often flew into uncontrollable fits of rage which he took out on the women in his life.

9. Emotionally abused his son

Without question, the greatest victim of Lennon’s character failings was his oldest son, Julian. Lennon clearly resented the young boy whose conception had forced him into a marriage he didn’t want and trapped him in a domestic routine he was too immature and narcissistic to sustain. Both Julian and his mother Cynthia have publicly stated that Lennon was alternately absent, indifferent, drug-addled, and generally unpleasant to be around during Julian’s early childhood. After he divorced Cynthia, Lennon took off with Yoko Ono and dropped out of his son’s life for years. After they reconnected, Lennon severely emotionally abused his son on several occasions, berating and screaming at him until the boy was reduced to tears. Once, Julian giggled and Lennon shouted back, “I hate the way you fucking laugh!” Julian was not yet a teenager at the time. In perhaps the saddest statement ever made about Lennon, Julian later stated that Paul McCartney was more of a father to him than his real father was.

8. Pathological liar

Put simply, John Lennon made up his own life – exaggerating, embellishing, and outright lying when it suited him to do so. Usually, he did so out of pure egomania – a desire to make himself appear better than he actually was. Everyone does this to some extent, but in Lennon’s case, he rewrote almost every major event in his life to suit his tastes. He claimed he had been a working class lad from Liverpool before the Beatles; he was actually raised in a comfortable middle-class home. He denied being married during his early years of stardom. He claimed to have met Yoko Ono at an art show and their love blossomed spontaneously; in fact, Ono had stalked him for months before he gave in to her advances. He claimed to have lost interest in the Beatles due to Paul McCartney’s tendencies toward pop music and dominant role in the group, as well as his desire to do his more avant-garde work outside the band; in fact, he had all but left the band in its last two years as the result of a serious addiction to heroin. When he emerged back into the public eye shortly before his death, he claimed that he had been spending time baking bread and being a stay-at-home dad; in fact, he had been living in a drug-induced haze most of the time. The truth in all of these cases was embarrassing, but no more than the kind of behavior many rock stars acknowledged engaging in during the ‘60s and ‘70s; Lennon compulsively lied about it anyway.

7. Broke up The Beatles

Contrary to later tales of a spontaneous break and/or the decision by Paul McCartney to leave the band, it was John Lennon who destroyed the Beatles. Certainly, all was not well with the band during the final years of the ‘60s, but it was Lennon and Lennon alone who brought down the axe, announcing at an otherwise routine meeting that he was leaving the group. It was kept under wraps for some time, but no one was under any illusions about the ability of the group to go on without him. Essentially, Lennon’s departure made the death of the Beatles inevitable; it just took a year or so for the obituary to be written.

6. Politically clueless

People tend to see Lennon as some sort of divine guru of peace and love because of his political activities in the early 1970s. The truth is that most of Lennon’s reputation as a political activist is based on photos of him with various ‘60s radicals and his own press statements. He never actually did anything whatsoever of note in the political realm, and most of the radicals he cultivated thought he was an ignorant poseur.

5. Talentless

This is probably the most controversial item on this list, and it must be admitted that it is an inherently subjective issue to some extent, but a very good case can be made that even as a musician and a songwriter, Lennon was remarkably under-talented. First, he was at best an average guitar player, mostly confined to basic rhythm parts, and his piano playing wasn’t much better. As for his songwriting, yes he did write a handful of truly inspired songs, but as time passes and the nostalgic hype surrounding the Beatles begins to fade, a lot of his works comes off as silly and dated. Try reading the lyrics to “Strawberry Fields Forever” or “Come Together” sometime. They’re pure hippie psychedelic babbling, the kind of thing that passed for profundity in the drug-induced haze of the late 1960s. The only thing that makes them work is the terrific production, for which credit easily goes to producer George Martin and the other Beatles as much as to Lennon himself.

In fact, looking back on the Beatles legacy, one can make a pretty good case that both Paul McCartney and George Harrison (on the later albums, at least) were superior talents to Lennon in the songwriting department. The truth is, after about 1965, Lennon more or less drops out of the Beatles. He had almost nothing to do with the Sgt. Pepper album, and most of what came after was – by everyone’s admission – largely at the behest of Paul McCartney. By the end, as you can see in the film Let It Be, McCartney was desperately trying to motivate a Lennon who simply didn’t want to be there. As for Lennon’s solo career, there are five or six memorable songs and the rest… Well, can you name a single track from “Sometime in New York City”?

4. Follower not a leader

This is true of pretty much all the Beatles, but with Lennon it’s particularly obvious. In the beginning he was following the American rhythm and blues tradition with a smattering of Roy Orbison-style pop ballads. Later he’s obviously trying to channel Bob Dylan. Then he’s aping the psychedelic stylings of the California drug bands. After that, he gloms on to avant-garde, John Cage-influenced (above) modern art music. Truth be told, there wasn’t much Lennon did that hadn’t been done before by more original and talented artists.

3. Mindless conformist

Despite his reputation as a freethinker following his own path, Lennon was an obvious case of someone desperate to fit in. Yes, he was trying to fit in with groups that were considered non-conformist, but conformism is conformism. Right from the beginning, Lennon was posing. Back in the day, the teddy-boy look was the in thing, so he shows up in leather jackets and a pompadour. Then its the cute pop look. Then the psychedelic hippie thing. Then the angry avant-garde hipster. It never ends. Everything about Lennon, from his music and politics to the way he dressed, was an attempt to fit in with sub- or counter-cultures that already existed.

2. Desperate for money and fame

As much he liked to pretend to be a misunderstood artist following his own uncompromising vision, the truth is that Lennon pursued fame and fortune from the beginning. Even in the early days when the Beatles were a struggling bar band, he used to extol them by saying they would go “to the topper most of the popper most.” He happily went along with the Beatles’ haircuts, suits, and calculated image; as well as the band’s innumerable media appearances; only denouncing it all as shallow and empty later in life, when he was cultivating an avant-garde reputation. His relentless antics with Yoko Ono in the early ‘70s now seem to be such a blatant plea for attention that one wonders how anyone took them seriously back then. And of course, he never turned down any of the fat paychecks that came his way as a result of his fame and success.

1. Hypocrite

This is the toughest one and the hardest to say in public, mainly because Lennon’s murderer (above) cited it as his primary motive, but that doesn’t make it any less true: Lennon was a perfect example of someone who lived by the hypocritical dictum of “do as I say, not as I do.” As his critics sometimes point out, all you have to do is go straight to his songs. The man who sang “imagine no possessions” lived a millionaire’s life in a posh New York hotel. The man who sang “imagine no religion” was obsessed with every spiritual and New Age fad that came his way, including Hindu meditation, the I-Ching, and astrology of all kinds. The man who sang “all you need is love” was a bitter, violent, and angry man who abused his family and friends. The man who praised having “nothing to kill or die for” helped finance and publicize radical groups who extolled the use of violence. Quite literally everything his fans see personified in the icon of John Lennon are ideals the man himself either couldn’t or wouldn’t live up to.

anonymous asked:

prove it. The john Lennon thing

Okay!

“He physically abused both his wives, emotionally abused his son, was controlling and misogynist,”

“he literally made yoko ono write a list of all the men she’d been with and shamed her for it”

  • When they first began dating, Lennon forced Yoko to write down a list of men she’d slept with so he could pore over the names, treating each like a “mortal enemy.”

“wrote a song called “woman is the n-word of the world” (except actually used the slur)”

^here’s a link to the video “Woman are the N-words of the world”

“homophobic and antisemetic, was openly racist,”

“stated that the idea of disabled people touching him made him sick, used to pretend to be intellectually disabled on stage as a joke,”
