Sequels Of Many Sorts

 

 

Sequels Of Many Sorts I have been thinking. Recently I saw a marquee on a movie theater announcing the showing of the classic 1949 film Adam's Rib starring Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.  I had other plans so seeing it again wasn't an option but that moment provided the inspiration for this post. 

 

Sequels of all sorts are common.  In movies(reel life in some form) and elsewhere(actual real life).   Every day.  And everywhere.  We see things remade, re-imagined and reinvented.  You can add reinterpretations to this mix as well as things are adapted to fit all sorts of examples.  

 

As you might imagine, this isn't an analogy that works just or film.  It can be seen in many forms.  It's evident in daily conversation.  Maybe it's that person who speaks in an almost sermon-like manner(no disrespect to the clergy) over and over and then over again.   Perhaps, it is to hear him or herself speak for no other reason than the melodic tone of hearing one's own voice?  Maybe there's a message there that needs to be expressed. 

 

School is in session in full force and we may recall a former teacher or professor who stood at the lectern attempting to effectively instruct.  Rote learning.   Maybe. 

 

Often we see a theme here on ActiveRain. There may be subjects that need to be addressed.  Repeated in  a different way.  Retold.  Another  view.  A different perspective.  A new voice.  And now onto a different ponder.

It seems sometimes that a person will understand something when someone else explains it after you have tried several times.  I guess it is all about perspective.  Great blog...thanks for sharing!

Michael, I remember watching the movie Back to the Future, and then the 2 sequels that followed. The original was always my favorite!

Norma J. Elkins - I understand that feeling.  Each of us can hear that "same message" but its interepretation can be different.  Maybe it's the deliverer.  Or the timing.  Any number of factors.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - and then the "future" suddenly appears before us.

Hi Michael... I believe sequels in our "real" lives are good and keep us growing. And how wonderful to be able to re-invent ourselves to some degree throughout our lives.

AMEN to Roy Kelley's comment!

And, I JUST described to a friend that I thought someone else talked just to hear their teeth chatter! 🤣

Roy Kelley  &  Debe Maxwell, CRS  I responded to a couple  Q & A's  because I thought someone needed help... well I was wrong... they did not need help... must be working to get those extra points:))Endre

That happens, Endre Barath, Jr. and then we have the idiot professor who has his students ask questions in Q&A to get their answers for homework credit. #LazyProfessor

Debe Maxwell, CRS and Endre Barath, Jr. - I think the original intent to the Q&A section was a good one but it appears at times to have been derailed.  Unintended consequences? I think this is yet another example.  Not just for ActiveRain but in life.  

Endre - some stories can be retold repeatedly and for good reason.

Hahaha, what Roy Kelley observes. So true. I have seen a few sequels that were decent, but for the most part, it makes more sense to re-imagine something new.   And yes, talking just to hear their voice - no thank you.  D

It may be a good time to retire the current Q&A section and poder about the future needs.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - some good, some not-so-good...I don't think we can say the death of the sequel is one we'll soon see.  

Roy Kelley - it seems there has been some talk of that in that section and elsewhere.  My opinion:  talk is cheap.

Not exactly what you are talking about...but a sequel of sorts:

I just watched the first episode of the new HGTV series about the Brady Bunch house that just sold for millions of dollars. They are basically gutting the inside and adding 2000 sf to turn it into the interior that we all saw on tv. Turns out the real life inside is nothing like the fictional Brady's home (sound stage).

I really enjoyed it and I look forward to seeing the rest of the transformation.

Sharon Tara - I know of the HGTV show(s) and the various interpretations of that change.  It should be interesting to see how the shows involving the Brady Bunch is received by the public and any influences beyond that.

Good evening Michael Jacobs ,

As always your posts give us plenty to ponder over..never a sequel..always something new and imaginative and a topic we should ponder but have never made the time even contemplate the subject!

Michael Jacobs - Too bad you weren't at the Author's Conference in Kalispell in Montana this past weekend! One of the authors who wrote and published more than 70 books said everything that is talked about today is not new. Somebody else thought about it, wrote about, lived it. worried about it, etc. For some, learning something new is really an epiphany for them! For others, it may not be new. It's best not to judge and definitely not plagiarize. 

I liked your post. Some of the comments were comical. Most were very good.

Michael, our business is a sequel of sorts, and hope they ALL end the same way - in a closing!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - if we believe it, it's likely going to be repeated in different ways.  By ourselves and by others.  Perspective comes into play along with many other aspects of experience.

Joan Cox - real estate closings can result in some happily ever after moments.
