We will look back on this time in history, and we will laugh at how frivolously we handled social media. We utilized it to basically worship celebrity even more than we already have in our society, which is to say, quite a bit. We used it to share kitten videos, and to write about the wrongs we don’t think are right, yet are not proactive enough to try to change, just openly bitch about. We will remember how, week after week, people “adopted” some cause to make them feel better about themselves (so tell me, how many child soldiers DID you save by posting one pic of Kony one day, a year ago?) yet no one will be smart enough to step up and realize that, right now, this EXACT moment in time, we can render the dollar useless (well, more so than it already is) and literally change the way that all Americans live. How do we do that? Easy. We alter how we pay for goods, using word of mouth and each other, and start existing solely on barter. You know, trading wares and skills for other wares and skills? I know FOR A FACT I can provide a service you need. And I know FOR A FACT that you can provide me a service I need. So why the fuck are we still using paper currency that has no value, and credit which has no backing and only digs us into holes, when we can exist solely on what we already have and the skills we’ve acquired over the years?
Seriously, people, it really is THIS simple.
Alright, listen, just because I hate the ideals this country was formed on, doesn’t mean I hate this Country. Quite the opposite, actually. Any Country that allows me to write about hot woman in horror movies, or how getting shot is heavy metal, is a f*cking great Country. Like I said, no issues with the Country itself, but I do have some issues with how we came to be. And no single holiday sums up America quite like Thanksgiving. We pretend the basis for this epic-meal themed-holiday was the discovery of America, and the peaceful cohabitation between different cultures over a mutual understanding. But come on, can’t we stop pretending for a bit? Columbus was a deceitful, shady scumbag, and rape, murder, and thievery where the basis of him
stealing discovering this great Country of ours. So eat away the guilt, people. But atleast be honest with yourself when you do. The whole idea of this holiday is something that always escapes me, every Thanksgiving. Hey, we stole your land and raped your culture, let’s eat pie. For some odd reason, I can’t wrap my head around that, but the general population seems to have no problem with it, which makes it even weirder to me. I know I am not the first to say it, but hear me out for a second.
Hey kids, do you take drugs? Well, you SHOULD! They will instill fake confidence in you that will allow to do things WAY outside of your means. Granted, they may ruin your life if you’re weak-willed and easily broken. And they could totally kill you, too, depending on which ones you do. But if you keep it to the simple drugs, like pot, you should be alright. As a matter of fact, drugs make this post you are about to watch WAY better. Hey, if nothing else, I keep it real.
The confessional scene is the first indication that this place is mighty f*cked up.
Do you think gaming can be scary? I have asked this question before, and I do believe you know my answer. Due to the interactivity of it all, I honestly believe a well-made horror game can be SCARIER than a horror film. Because you are not so much a witness when you play it as you are a part of the story. For great examples of this, look at games like Dead Space and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. For some, those games are too scary to play. I spent a good number of weeks trying to find a game that was unsettling and creepy that I could share with you guys and gals, and I found a gem with the Exmortis series. I know I am starting you off on part 2, but only because you get the gist of the story pretty quick, with all the bugs and kinks worked out of part 1. And there is still a part 3 for your to explore if you beat this one. Game on, my brave friends.
You know those scenes in movies where something extremely messed up happens and people just kind of wince? When something really extreme happens, and the people reacting to it are reacting like they are on xanax, or seeing something different then what the audience is seeing? Yeah, I don’t get that. People scream, panic, and cry over things far less serious in real life, so why does cinema constantly have actors downplay huge moments? And not always downplay it, as play it wrong altogether. How do these directors not realize that these reactions do not reflect how people would react to similar situation the real world. Or is it that these are all terrible actors who cannot convey what emotion would fit best for the scene? Read the list and you tell me. I truly find it puzzling.
More so than any other movie I have ever ran on this site, I NEED you guys to watch this film, Triangle. Why? Because it is an amazing mindf*ck of a movie, and I need some people to talk about theories on the film with me. You see, this movie is like a horror version of Donnie Darko. It is a might bit confusing once you first see it and try figure out what is going on, and it may switch up on you a few times, too. But overall, the movie is far more awesome than anyone gives it credit for. Trust me, watch it and comment. Let’s share some TRIANGLE theories.
For a free flash game, this is about as deep as they get.
And dare I say,sad?
Though the controls may seem deceptively simple at first, do not become too at ease, because once the difficulty curve kicks in, it gets steep quick.
The main hook in The Company of Myself is you can play with “shadows” of your former play throughs.
Rather than have me ruin it by explaining it, I will just let you see for yourself.
Be forewarned, though: It is incredibly addictive.
Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of the brilliant Anthony Burgess novel, A Clockwork Orange, is the first film that stopped me dead in my tracks.
Sometimes, late at night, I will wander around the internet in a haze.
Eventually, I will trip over something cool enough to take note of.
Tonight, thanks to this site right here, I found this:
And it blew my mind.
This commercial begs so many questions:
1) Why is this the worst, yet still somehow the catchiest song ever written?
You may argue that last sentence, but if you watch the video, you will be cursed with singing
“DRUGS, DRUGS, DRUGS. Which are good and which are bad” for the next week, mark my words.
2)Is this is anti-drug song? Because honestly, it feels more like a pro-drug chant that hippies would sing at a rally
3) I grew up in the 80′s, so how did I not see this? What kind of tiny box must my parents have stuck me inside, that my youth was denied this gem?
4) This might be the best thing I ever saw.
Oh sorry, that last one wasn’t a question.
I have this damn drugs song stuck in my head.
I am hoping in sharing this with you, I lose the curse of the drugs song.
Like the videotape in The Ring, I am trying to pass this evil on to you.
I am sorry
Well, here we are again.
It is Sunday. Time to sit down and watch a full movie with me.
But I need to warn you, today’s flick is not quite as frivolous as my last choice.
This week, I am going with Zeitgeist.
Half of you are rolling your eyes and hating me,
and the other half are applauding right now.
But both sides, please understand, I am by no means pushing the agenda in this film.
I simply think more people need to see it and discuss what they saw, openly and honestly.
There theories in this film that truly piss some people off.
That being said, there are also theories in here that others find pretty sound.
I think the hardest part for the viewer is differentiating between the two when they see this film.
Either way, it merits a watching.
But be forewarned, this first fifteen minutes of this film are incredibly intense.
Like “people leaving the room” intense, so remember that.
If it seems TOO intense, give it a chance. It lessens its pace after the initial attack on the senses.
All that being said, I hope you have two hours to kill and an open mind.
And Remlins, do me a favor?
Leave comments about the movie.
Did it piss you off? If so , why?
Did it open your mind? And if so, why?
Do you think of it as fact, or basically a bunch of conspiracy theories, strung together?
Either way, it makes for a pretty compelling watch. Few seem to argue that point.
