It's been quite a while since I made a post! What happened during this long gap? Nothing much really. Except I watched Frozen. So I guess everything. But you know the best part about a great movie? What comes from the fans afterwards.
For something "new" to come along, the idea had to be taken from somewhere else. Whether it be a song, movie, innovational advancements, or whatever, the idea came from another source.
"Original" songs take melodies or something else from songs that are already made, remix them, and claim them as their own. This type of thing also happends in movies. The same type of movies will usually have the same plot line. Take, for example, Disney princess movies. A girl does something to rebel her normal life, meets a boy, falls in love, a complication arrises that separates them, they meet again, and they all live happily ever after. Sound familiar? That's because that plot has been used in most, if not all, of the disney princess movies, or even just fairytales in general.
For something to actually be original is nearly impossible since so many little things and tampered with to create that "original" idea. This is not a bad thing, though. It causes for people to be able to move forward in technologies and innovations. The idea of remixing is what pushes mankind forward in life.

There are so many ideas that we hold inside of our minds that we never let out or even think possible. The very idea that we could make something so vast actually happen seems to be impossible.
Why is it that we do this to ourselves? Why is it so hard for us to believe that maybe it can happen? Maybe we should all take a look at the television show Phineas and Ferb. These two kids create something new every day throughout their summer. Just one of the things that they did was build a rollercoaster in their backyard that went all around the city. Yes. That actually happened. They built a ROLLERCOASTER in their backyard.
Now, I know what you're all thinking. "Well, that's just a show; we can't actually do anything like that." True, there's probably no way you can build a rollercoaster in your backyard, but you can do something smaller. Take all of your ideas that are at least somewhat logical, that also does not cause anyone harm, and try to carry them out. You might be surprised of what you create.

I think something needs to be said about the show, The Legend of Korra, which if you don't know, is the sequel series to the amazing Avatar The Last Airbender (not the one with the blue people). If I had to choose one animated kids show as proof that children's television hasn't gone down the wastebasket, I would without a doubt choose The Legend of Korra; its amazing art style and applicable themes make it a must watch for the whole family.
