i think its a good message to parent who thinks academics is the only existing thing in the world and everyone who cant cope up with academics are waste to society. As in jack blacks terms ROCKING is also serving the society!! i think it says we all have to losen up and should not become the MAN!!!

I think that both academics and life skills are equally important. The problem (especially in asian countries) is that more emphasis is places on certain academics, the maths and sciences, and the arts and humanities, music, dance, takes a backseat but really someone who is passionate and hardworking in any area they love should be given a chance to make a career out of it! Usually the parents with traditional mindsets aren't aware of alternative career paths, which is sad, but in certain cases, they can't be blamed as they are from a time when these areas were probably not considered viable options.

I agree with this subject of discussion. In addition to learning, loosening up is essential because one should not be subject to repetition. I love academics and all that but sometimes I have to loosen up and rock out to rewire my brain.
