Remember that really popular show about nothing in the 90’s? Many of you will already have thought ‘Seinfeld!’ Yes that’s the one. Whether Seinfeld was, in fact, a show about nothing has been hotly debated but the concept allows for an incredible amount of scope!
If the show was about nothing … then EVERYTHING could be included. It could go anywhere. No two episodes needed to follow on from each other necessarily for example. The characters have been described as “thirty-something singles with vague identities, no roots, and conscious indifference to morals.“
I admire and follow websites / blogs such as theminimalists that have a very definite theme, purpose and concept. Passionate, sharing type individuals who are telling their story about ’how-to-live’.
koneko.life is more Seinfeld than theminimalists. It is about LIFE not about how-to-live. It is about nothing and everything. It is East & West. It is funny & sad. It is about black & white and maybe even 50 Shades of Grey! It is more questions than answers. It is exploratory rather than proscriptive.
Jean-Paul Sartre, famous 20th century existential philosopher, is quoted as saying, “Everything has been figured out … except how to live.” If you do not follow the word of God, then what DO you do? No real wonder that there are so many organizations, websites and artifacts aimed at how-to-live.
koneko.life is about EXPERIENCING life, SAVOURING living and not being constrained by man-made laws, rules, strictures and regulations, OR dictated to by culture, bosses, media moguls, banks, governments and do-gooders!
Let’s confront it … life is glorious AND Shit. In here we will acknowledge and celebrate that equally.
