Anderson's Viewers Got Talent.
Despite what the wise old King Solomon claimed in the Bible's book of Ecclesiastes about there being "nothing new under the sun," my thinking is that he was more than a little shortsighted. Perhaps that was the case some three-thousand years ago during Old Testament times, but it's doubtful, were he living today, that Solomon would find little that is not new (under the sun or otherwise). Even if he was speaking figuratively, rather than literally, there's little doubt King Solomon would find any number of items having to do with human nature that could be considered "new." The world today thrives on newness while at the same time also viewing it with some trepidation, or at least, many people do. Nowhere is newness embraced more wholeheartedly than in the world of art. The very definition of art has to do with creativity (originality) and thus, newness. In fact, we refer to art that isn't new with one of the worst epithets an artist might face--trite.
