Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X.
There are no precise dates when the generation starts and ends. Economic prospects
for the Millennials have declined, largely due to the late-2000s Great Recession.

Lou Reed’s DRONES is a three-hour-long visceral, emotional and spiritual installation
during which audience members may come and go as they please.

Unlike white magic, in which Robert M. Place sees parallels with primitive shamanistic efforts

The first work of the director is to set a mood so that the actor's work
can take place, so that the actor can create. And in order to do that,
you have to communicate, communicate with the actors. And direction
is about communication on all levels. ---William Friedkin
