Non-Popular Culture

Knowing the difference between the popular, the unpopular and the non-popular is usually a sign of enlightenment.  How enlightened are you, dear audience member?  What are your reasons for being here?  What are your expectations within this digital auditorium?  Are you expecting to audition?

If you are an ordinary mortal, what are you doing here?  Ordinary mortals have a tendency to be uncritical of their own talents, tastes and expectations.

If you consider yourself to be a good critic, why is that?  Good critics are usually highly critical of themselves, in a highly enlightened way. 

What is your usual approach to self-improvement?  Is it somewhat egocentric?  Is it eccentric?  Is it reasonably measurable?

Most people can be improved by acquainting themselves with non-popular culture.  Perhaps that is why you are here.  What is your usually understanding of enlightenment?

As any truly enlightened being is aware, enlightenment is non-popular and sometimes even unpopular.  Attempting to make enlightenment more popular through this ethereal theatre is an impossible task.  Is it possible anywhere else?

All truly enlightened beings have sprezzatura.  You have not yet provided evidence that you possess it.  Why is that?

Please contact the management if you wish to remain here for the remainder of this presentation.  Are you a paid-up member of the Mozarty Party?  Most party members are highly accomplished proponents of non-popular culture.  What are your accomplishments?

Perhaps you took a wrong turning at the stage door.  You may be expected upstairs instead.  Are you aware that world peace appears to be confined to non-popular culture?

The followers and practitioners of popular culture appear to mistake their pursuits with inclusive access to something worthwhile.  That is a great pity.  Popular culture includes many mistakes.

The practitioners of unpopular culture, most of whom have few if any followers, tend to be hostile towards both popular culture and non-popular culture.  They also tend to be hostile towards various expressions of unpopular culture not of their own making. 

Are you unpopular at all?  Do you consider yourself to have artistic integrity?  Do you consider yourself to have moral integrity?

Popularity is often associated with the mass media.  It is the same with unpopularity.  What is popular with some people tends to be unpopular with others.

The non-popular, on the other hand, tends to involve both inclusive and exclusive experiences.  Do you consider this digital location to be quite exclusive or relatively inclusive?

What do you consider to be popular, unpopular and non-popular about the Twaklinesque?

The doors of this usually private* ethereal theatre opened for the first time to ordinary mortals (at least if those persons were philanthropically provided with free tickets) on Mr Mozart's birthday last year.  The celebrations are still continuing here in Villa Twaklinilkawt*.

*Links marked with an asterisk are for patrons only.

You may have had the chance to attend a post-performance party in the music room here.  You may even have been invited to enjoy a tour of Villa Twaklinilkawt*.

If you have ever participated in non-popular culture elsewhere, how have you been matching Mozart?

What have been your non-popular contributions to The Social Media Show?

Who and what do you follow, and why?

Who and what is popular with you at present? 

Who and what was popular with you in the past but not in the present?

What have been your recent contributions to the Mozarty Party World Peace and Global Prosperity Tour?

What have been your recent contributions to various dialogues of enlightenment?

What is your acquaintance with the most enlightened Adelaideans?

Have you ever participated in an enlightened dialogue in South Australia?

The highly enlightened, Twaklinesque Adelaideans, and their Nilkawtian counterparts, are devotees of the highest forms of non-popular culture.  You may have already met a few of those persons around Villa Twaklinilkawt.  In between assisting visitors, they are usually to be found quietly reading a Twaklin anthology.

What do you usually read when not providing assistance directly to other people?  Do you tend to read works of popular culture, unpopular culture or non-popular culture?  If you are unenlightened, you are unlikely to read much at all.

Do you believe yourself to be sufficiently familiar with Twaklinian poetry, songs, variations and recitals?  If not, you may wish to contact the box office for information on future Twaklinian performances here. 

Please note that there are no upcoming public occasions, at least not officially.  Public occasions are frequently overly popular with uncritical audiences, especially when promoted heavily through the mass media. 

Upcoming private occasions here never require advertising.  In fact, public occasions in this theatre have never been advertised either.

If you have ever had the privilege of visiting the green room associated with this ethereal theatre, you may be aware of the benefits of that location to non-popular performers.  Do you know how to overcome stage fright on the world stage?

An expressions of non-popular culture is often regarded as a heritage performance.  That is probably why that culture it is open to so many different interpretations. 

Popular expressions of heritage are rarely accurate.  Unpopular expressions of heritage tend to be dangerous.  The main intention and attraction of non-popular expressions of cultural heritage relate to their ongoing relevance.

What is your ongoing relevance?  Are you ever involved in undercover work?  Have you ever participated in a non-popular evening of auditions?

Non-popular culture may occasionally include a few dramas from the parlour, or from another equally enlightening location.  Attempts at being popular with all age groups and demographics may occasionally be successful at a non-popular special Christmas matinĂ©e for all the family, regardless of the religious views of those in attendance.  The non-popular often has an ability to transcend cultural and psychological differences.

Enlightened persons always respect the heritage aspects of non-popular presentations as well as the universal aspects involved.  This particularly applies when preparing for the Digital Twaklinesque Festival of Peace.  In fact, preparations are currently underway for the next such festival, particularly in Mozart's dressing room and Nannerl's suite, and upstairs, of course, in the salon for world peace.

Preparations are already underway, too, for Mr Mozart's next birthday celebrations.  What were you doing the last time anyone said "Happy Birthday most arty Sir Mozarty Mozart"?

Mozart transcends both popular culture and non-popular culture.  He has never been part of unpopular culture, except in the minds of arrogant archbishops and jealous musicians.  In three days from now, everyone in the Mozarty Party will be celebrating Nannerl's birthday.  They will then begin preparing for the next World Enlightenment Forum.

How do you compare popular, unpopular and non-popular careers, all things being otherwise equal?

How do you compare popular, unpopular and non-popular comedy, especially whilst attending the Planet Earth Comedy Show or a similar sort of Adelaidean show?

Do you consider Adelaide to be a city of dreams or nightmares or popular culture or unpopular culture or as a world centre of non-popular culture?

There are obviously many questions for you to answer if you are to gain exclusive access to any part of Villa Twaklinilkawt in the future.  Were you one of the winning attendees at the most recent Ethereal World Peace Award ceremony?

When was the last time you had a peaceful day?

Do you believe peaceful days are part of non-popular culture?

How do you intend to prepare yourself for the next World Enlightenment Forum?
