    An insightful answer! I love your analysis. There IS so much to learn nowdays, especially since the Internet brings everything to our fingertips. I do think that we get new "art forms" for all the dying ones: humans are creative by nature, I think.

    Great examples, ChristinS! Thanks for sharing! (I agree--cooking "from scratch" is a dying art form. I know I can't cook at ALL. :-( ). Thanks for commenting!

    Haha Thanks for commenting, ESPeck1919! I'd only been vaguely familiar with this art form. Now I'll go and research it--sounds fascinating. I agree with your assessment, though: not sure how I feel about it on a personal level. :-)

    Oh, great examples, The Examiner-1! I LOVE Tchaikovsky. I would add a thousand (give or take LOL) composer-players to that list of musicians, and Da Vinci, though one-of-a-kind, has good competition: Hero, to name one ancient master of invention.
