The essential question that I hope to answer through this blog is to think about the value of the arts and compare consumption of pop culture to just sitting and looking or meditating on the world itself.  This sounds a little like I'm taking things a little too seriously--but I do wonder if one would more from just staring at the world itself rather than watching the best episode of The Wire. 

My goal would be to take the same amount of time watching the best of television or cinema or even music and then take the same amount of time looking at the world.  What would I learn if watched an episode of Breaking Bad and then spend 44 minutes watching a shadow move almost imperceptibly across my living room table?
