John Farrier's Comments

Thank you for your feedback.

I often post offbeat works of art, frequently with great success. This piece, for example, did pretty well. Can you offer any specific criteria for distinguishing between the artistic and the banal?

I can imagine that happening, too. When I decided to propose to my wife, I planned a grand, complex and romantic scene at a particular spot in a particular garden that was special to her. But I couldn't get our schedules to mesh and actually annoyed her in my efforts to do so.

Finally I said to myself, "Enough! I'm going to do this today!" So I drove to her workplace as she was closing up. We sat by the alligator pond nearby and ate cheesecake that I had purchased from Starbucks. Then I popped the question. It wasn't a movie-worthy gesture, but it was successful.

Yes and that's one reason why this video is so good. The MLP=Plato essay is, of course, nonsense. But this interpretation of MLP is completely reasonable. If he were alive, I'm pretty sure that Joseph Campbell would agree with the video maker's premise.

You can see the hero's journey almost everywhere. Most recently, I read it in Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom, a picture book for young children.

I've heard of these parties. There's a company in my area that offers them. I suppose that if a mother is getting an ultrasound scan for recreational rather than diagnostic purposes, it's not a bad idea. But a party would be the wrong place to learn about a gestational problem.
