The Grass Was Greener

Are we programmed by our fears? Ask the great David Gilmour.

 

 

Behind the Wall

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

Great article from Total Production International on some tech details  from Roger Waters’  The Wall tour. For both the curious and the obsessive.

…’“Setting up the wall, knocking it down. I lost track of how many times we did it,” commented Kansy. “It also took a lot of cardboard bricks. They’re semi-resilient — some of them last three shows, some only one. Each measures 5’ wide x 2.5’ high; they come flat-packed and it takes nearly 400 to do each show, so we slowly replace the ones that are looking worn. They’re sprayed with a flame-resistant substance. They’ll smoulder but they won’t burst into flames. Some of those bricks are flats that are there from the start, but it’s hard to tell out front.” For Europe, the flat-packed bricks are made in the UK by Smurfit Kappa of Peterborough…”

Here’s a link to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, the Weyland Connection.

 

 

Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Modern history’s greatest fantasy writer, Ray Bradbury, is no caterpillar.

He sees capitulation to government: not as brutal as Orwell’s 1984 but similar. Fahrenheit 451 is closer to Huxley’s Brave New World, but the ultimate results are the same.

The Tenant

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Am I the only one who thinks Roman Polanski might be “innocent”? A dangerous word, meaning without guilt. Roman admitted to the technicalities, but fearing incarceration, fled.

Sweet 16 – we hear that on almost every “nostalgic” 50′s tune; yet if the boy/man is 17, he’s ok; but if he’s 18, he’s suddenly a criminal.

Roman should not be tortured for statutory rape.  That is a very specific and deliberate crime – did she present herself as a ‘woman of consent’-? Did Polanski know she was underage? Quite different from involuntary rape - a truly criminal offense.

At the end of National Lampoon’s Animal House, a guy beds his girl on a football field – then she laughs, “surprise! I’m only 13!”

Machete – harbinger of a new race war?

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Alex Jones’ take on the upcoming exploitation film Machete.

Race-exploitation movies are hardly new; simply check out Black Ceasar or Sweet Sweetback for example.

But this time, things could be different; we shall see.

George Nails it Again

Monday, May 10th, 2010

He is the ghost of Eisenhower. George knows.

People are boring. Plus the original seven words. Cock is in the Bible.

Nowhere Men

Lost souls with dangerous weapons.

Alex may be right (and I don’t buy that “anti-Semitic” label).

Guam will capsize unless we raise your taxes!

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

That’s right – this congressional pinhead claims the island of Guam will literally tip over and capsize – plus he votes to raise your taxes AGAIN!

It’s a miracle, Comrades!

Fidel Castro praises the new Obama Health Control bill. And praise be!

Upward of 16,000 new IRS agents will be deployed to ensure that we have our government-mandated “protection.”

Everyone’s covered, including taxpayer-funded health care for child molesters!

Taxes, fines, mandates, jail terms – our Socialist Utopia has finally arrived.
