Civilization?

 

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison.
Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.”

Inception…

I had this crazy idea the other day, one of many, about Inception. First, I would like to say I walked out of the theater amazed and asking myself so many questions. The ideas presented in the movie have been running through my head ever since that fateful day, or night, I was introduced to the idea of dream levels. I have attempted to wrap my head around the many different scenarios that could occur by having six characters travel through their dream states. How many possibilities could there be in the dream level combinations? Oh, wait, I forgot to mention that I absolute am enthralled with television right now, Rubicon, True Blood, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Firefly, etc. So that being said I would like to present the idea of a television series based on Inception.

I would love to see this movie become a television series. I believe, if done correctly, it could appeal to a wide range of the television audience and would create a following the likes of LOST and Battlestar Galactica. Without really going into the idea I basically thought it would be great to see the movie drawn out into a series. Each episode would bring a new level of the dream state. This would allow for a great diversity in the sets, costumes, stories, while keeping one thread of an idea running throughout the season and wrapping that idea up in the season finale, or not. We could be introduced to a series of amazing characters throughout the season. With every episode our perception of reality would be questioned and bent with the set design and location.

I beg you, yes you, if you are listening, please make this happen. It would be a great success and would be another great televisions series to watch.

1984 Anyone?

I cam across this website called huesforalice.com and saw this really cool video.

Basically it comments on the many tactics that the government uses to “keep us safe” but does so in a clever way. Now I would for sure be all for “being safe” but those who are suppose to be keeping us safe are just as dirty and underhanded as the people who we are being kept safe from. I mean, all this scanning and protection and watching shit just does not work because the honest people are being watched as well as the dishonest and the dishonest are the ones watching, WTF!

Then again if you don’t watch everyone how do you know who are the “good” and the “bad”? Take a look at the video even if you are okay with being watched.

Someone Copies you!?

So being someone who enjoys a good fitted I was surprised to come across this graphic. I immediately recognized the graphic as being on a fitted hat by Mishka that I contemplated many times, but never purchase.

Now do not get me wrong I have like 4 or 5 Mishka hats but I am kind of upset that they would take this graphic and use it as their own. I understand the whole eye concept and a variation on the theme. Maybe it was even a shout out to this artist. Even Pablo Picasso himself said “Good Artists Borrow, Great Artists Steal”, but come on. They could of at least changed it up a little, more than the colors.

If you know who the artist for this cover is by any chance, please let me know because I do like the graphic in its simplicity and would like to find more.

Even if I a mistaken in my anger at this rip off, please let me know.

Orange you glad I posted this

I dare you to eat! I dare you to eat one slice! I double dog dare you to lick it! Okay just touch it with your big toe on your left foot!

Awwwwwww you nasty ass bastard I don’t even know you!

Fringe!

Today Fringe came back on television. Without warning it was just off air, and I wondered of of was cancels due to rating.

The show is very much like the X-Files
in that the protaganists are working with the FBI and solving these weird cases that pop up. A difference between the two shows is that they have a hustler type character and his father the scientist who is a former psycho ward residnet, this makes for and interesting and dynamic interaction of characters.

When I first saw a commercialfor the show I was intrigued and watched on premier day only to be dissapointed in the acting and simplicity I plot. I
However, I stuck with it and rightfully so because of is a much better show developing the plot of each show and the overall theme of the series.

I highly suggest checking it out if you are a fan of The X or even Lost.

A side note, I am writing this on
my iPhone when watching.
