The Complete Failure of a Civilization. Unfortunately, this won't every stop wars from happening until mankind eventually destroys itself.
No matter how "necessary" war is for certain countries, it doesn't change the fact that war is STILL the complete failure
of a civilzation

RIP All those who suffer in War.

Arguably the father of Independent Filmmaking, John Cassavetes is one of the best directors ever. Known for his uncompromising, deep character studies, long winded and revealing dialogue, a hand held documentary style, and gritty realism, Cassavetes is still one of the most relevant and thoughtful Directors to ever live.

Also acted in many more mainstream films, such as Rosemary's Baby and The Dirty Dozen. His great acting roles sometimes overshadow his amazing job as a Director, and his movies are something that need to be explored even more.

His movies do not necessarily leave you breathless like a great Spielberg film, but they explore man's insecurities, there delusions, there behavior, and above all, their weaknesses and how you, as the viewer, can learn from them and truly make your life better. Cassavetes work takes multiple viewing to understand, but once you do, you're life will change for the better.

Whether or not he's an actor or a Director, he was a truly thoughtful and insightful artist, who's work has been foreshadowed for far too long. Forget Psychoanalysis. Want to examine your own life and enlighten yourself a better way? Cassavetes is your answer.
"As an artist, I feel that we must try many things - but above all we must dare to fail."
-John Cassavetes

Cassavetes films include Shadows (1959), Faces (1968),

A great grunge band, who, like it's name, is musical nirvana when listened to right. Featuring Kurt Cobain's raw emotional vocals, simple yet intricate guitar playing, Krist Noveselick's rumbling bass, and Dave Grohl's skin pounding drums, they created a template that was often imitated, but never duplicated.

However, Nirvana's music is often used very wrong. Long established as an essential and easy band for angsty whiny teenagers, Nirvana's music, however, can be bliss. Kurt Cobain didn't want his audience to wallow in their own sorrow. He wanted to use his music as a catharic experience, the type of experience that let's you defeat your own problems through music. Unlike angsty bands like LInkin Park and Slipknot, Cobain wanted to use his music the right way: an experience that makes you come out strong and wanting to confront life.

Do yourself a favor, use Cobain's music right and, just maybe, you will find your day looking much brighter and better.
Listen to Nirvana to reach Nirvana. Full fill Cobain's wish.
