Beyond the wall / Re: Open Bar: Fake News, Fake Bar
« on: January 12, 2017, 08:02:46 pm »
This conversation is a waste of time.
Yeah, I get that everyone thinks the first one was a masterpiece but people are allowed to be wrong. It was good, but nothing special. It really took the second film to fully explore the horrors of not only the xenomorphs but of the inevitability of humanity's demise at the hands of its own greed.

If Star Trek is space socialism, the Alien quadrillogy is space libertarianism and that, I'm afraid, is the vastly more likely real-life future. And if that doesn't scare you, well, we're motivated by very different things I guess.


No, I think the issue is that Alien is actually a horror film, while Aliens is an action film.
Because Predator is obviously the most terrifying Sci fi movie of all time due to the implication that this planet is a mere playground for far more intelligent and technologically advanced species.

Which reminds me how terrifying Aliens is as a propaganda piece for the military industrial complex.

Welcome back!  And I thought you said it was only going away for a month, geesh, how's Saturn Jupiter this time of year? :)

Well, here's some dirt.  This dossier alleges full cooperation between Trump and the Russian regime, golden showers and other fun stuff.

Weird.  On drive home Monday, I noticed three licence plates referencing water-sports.  Suppose that makes sense now...  Watersports and licence plates...

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Direct Experience
« on: January 10, 2017, 11:34:29 pm »
What is in the way of OP's "direct" experience is the notion of a "world" that can be directly experienced without the interference of consciousness.  The world is not something that exists "on the other side" of consciousness.  Objective/external dichotomies are insufficient and misleading.  The only way to obtain any vestige of a "direct" experience is, wait for it............... Now! :)

Beyond the wall / Re: Our dreams have failed us

To fight against the death of dreams, today I did exactly what they last intimated.  This morning, I had a vivid dream about a being that lived in the swell above a waterfall.  Upon waking, I drove to a park and trekked up the mountain to a place that sometimes has one.  Not enough rain yet for that, however, the best Sunday I had in a while.  Not sure if that translates, hope it does, somehow.

"Schlep" - to haul, or carry; usually awkwardly or laborious
"coyote" - slang term for someone who transports undocumented immigrants over the Mexico-US border, typically cruelly and/or with ill intent.

Use Starbuck's pebbles to make a connection.

The news for me is like a weaponized vector of Takashi Miiake's Imprint.  Always fucking with my capacity to form positive expectations that do not reconfirm an otherwise total shitshow.  If I expose myself to it, for the sake of developing whatever fucking immunity to dealing with that "source", the result invariably reinforces my adherence to a world-view primarily informed by horror, instead of all the beauty that's ACTUALLY right fucking there.  It's fucking systemically pointless, a world where the center of narrative gravity is the specter of what could have been.  That's not news, it's not even fucking novel.  It's not even fake news, it's the endless recurrence of victimhood  A fucking curse through and through that people continue subjecting themselves to for only an effigy of sense.  It's like a long-form essay where we argue the reasoning FOR our extinction, because at least then, then we will have been right, once and for all finally satisfied, yes.  Behold, life at a pin's fee, very great, much good.
 [this represents my one and only expression of weakness for 2017, which will otherwise be focussed on solutions instead of said recursive bitching which I hope to have somewhat cleared]
