MY RECOMMENDATIONS ON TEDx TALKS
* Attention: I will constantly update this post so make sure to check it once a month!
- Beatbox Brilliance: https://youtu.be/GNZBSZD16cY
- By Tom Thum in TEDxSydney (2013)
- My thoughts on this speech (oh this is more like a performance): Amazing. This man is an extremely creative artist and he has the confidence to show the world his talent. Usually beatbox consists of just drum sounds, but it feels like he has “swallowed an entire orchestra and several backing singers”! He could create everything with his mouth, from Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” to “No Diggity” by Blackstreet.
- Forget What You Know: https://youtu.be/Uq-FOOQ1TpE
- By Jacob Barnett in TEDxTeen (2012)
- My thoughts on this speech: This is my favourite one so far. Jacob Barnett is 2 years older than me, and even though he has got autism and been to “Special Ed” class before, he is still a genius. He has solved some really important math/astro physics problems and a university degree isn’t even his focus! In this speech, he talks in a really funny way (I feel like so even though some people complain that his voice is annoying af), and he does present an accurate point in exploring things: “Don’t learn the field, BE that field” with lots of precise examples.
