I may do a Zuckerberg / Big Brother mashup.

FACEBOOK just got stuck “Posting,” in order to not post and censor out U.S. war crimes from being communicated there. The description also disappeared, and it went something like this…

The real reason Julian Assange is in a British prison without charge is for revealing US war crimes. The Collateral Murder video shows a US helicopter murdering civilians, including a Reuters cameraman and a van full of children that arrived on the scene to give aid.

Sad news. Erik Myers died, in a car accident. Myers was one of the greatest American stand-ups around. Don’t believe me?

In the form of a “Support Message,” can you hear George Orwell’s snicker?

Anything challenging the political orthodoxy of Facebook & friends is purged, censored from YOU. You are ultimately the reason for this censorship regime. You are not allowed to think.

WHY ISIS EXISTS: THE DOUBLE GAME. (2015)

Do tell. Comments are always open here.

WRECKING BALLS

Let’s see your book reviews, if you think it’s so easy.

Anyone interested in hard scifi has to watch Westworld. It’s the biggest production that exists, as far as I know. They have now spanned the world and brought the future, and it’s one of the few actual mind-blowing projects.

The theme is freedom, what it means, what it doesn’t mean, and the struggle that is both real and vividly imagined, how they cross over. The term they used was “algorithmic determinism.”

My love has been professed for Evan Rachel Wood, and I just learned she’s a black belt in tae kwon do. Of course she is.

The show shot in Singapore, Spain, the west, and thirty years in the future. It’s bigger than life, and the story crackles because of Jonathan Nolan, Christopher’s brother who obsesses over the Inception mutli-threaded strings of plots. It quickly grows more complicated. It’s not like easy to follow linear stories. They are constantly asking the big questions.

It starts off slow-burn and building in complexity. By the end of the season, it’s massive in scale. I really don’t think that anyone who ended up here needs any more convincing.

Exulto Review

Exulto is a 2016 found footage short film Directed by Joe Giambrone…”

The free movie is linked at the bottom.

“An aerial video shows the destruction caused by the Russian missile strikes on the fuel market in Al-Hamran in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, which was considered the second-largest market for looted oil from Syria’s oil fields occupied by the United States. The tankers were supposed to deliver Syria’s looted oil to Al-Qaeda and its Turkish backed affiliates.”

“America is back.” -Joe Biden

Since 2016 America and Russia have been at the edge of Armageddon, you know, the end of the world. That’s why I’ve written about it since 2012, when it became clear the US was playing a dangerous game in Syria. Biden may lead us all off the big cliff yet. His brainwashed, head-bobbing fan base won’t even understand why the world incinerated.

SERIAL REVIEW

Some shameless self-promo. Only you guys can make this a Cult Classic. Movie is at the bottom of the linked page.

Kingdom – Review

Set in ancient Korea, this gory war tale brings the zombies in a fresh way.

This was another series that should have appeared on my binge list. The story revolves around power and the monarchy. Ruthless, cunning, malevolent people create the plague deliberately.

The first-born prince slowly comes to understand the plot behind the madness. He is being squeezed out as illegitimate by the emperor’s new wife.

The zombies are fast and overwhelming. Setting it back when before computers helps to transport the audience to an alternative world where the questions seem larger than life. The playing field is more even, and the zombies are a serious threat. The rivalries in the imperial court play out in parallel with the ever-growing zombiepocalypse, and so it remains interesting.


This is a good news/bad news situation. There isn’t a lot of great stuff lately, but some of it is worth a look.

The Queen’s Gambit

This is my top pick for watching right now. Loved it. Loved the adult sensibility, the lack of idiots and idiocy, and the entire production was top notch. (more)

The Mandolorian

I’m stuck in the first season at the moment, so I haven’t seen enough for a full review. The opening was clearly a Spaghetti Western set in Star Wars, and so I was instantly sold. Mando is very much like Clint Eastwood’s man with no name. The Baby Yoda twist works on its own, but I haven’t seen where that thread is headed yet. I’m sure to the Disney Store.

Black Mirror

Now caught up: this is the hard scifi show to watch. If you have Netflix streaming, definitely do not miss. Charlie Brooker is a genius.

The Expanse

For its vibe, its dark perspective the show has legs. It’s not my favorite, and I’m not enamored of the characters, but sometimes you need to head out beyond the belt.

AHS 1984

Jason & Freddy may be in a different copyright zone, but American Horror Story has returned to the big 80s to aerobicize the terror out of you. With the expected callbacks to previous characters, you may see Richard Ramirez get his own Satanic-powered subplot. The problem with this season (and others) is that there’s no one to root for. They pretty much all turn out shitty by the end. They’re big on redemption stories of the worst killers, and that doesn’t work for me.

The End of the Fucking World

This is kind of a show of, by, and for young psychotic serial killers. For that alone, it’s worth checking out. The deviant kid in the lead role is creepy.

Humans

One of the best realizations of The Singularity yet. (review)

Parasite

A Korean language film won the Oscar for Best Picture? Yes it did. And it’s all about class conflict. (review)

Knives Out

This is like an old time thriller they don’t make anymore. (review)

1917

Amazing achievement and also takes you away to another time and another war that has little bearing on our current reality. There’s a kind of escape. (review)

Other films I’d recommend are Destroyer (Nicole Kidman), Woman at War, Capernaum, Ford v. Ferrari, Little Women, Harriet, Queen & Slim.

There’s also Possessor, which I would have reviewed if it was a better film. It’s Brandon Cronenberg, his second film–the first one was better.

If you’re all binged-out and burned through those, there is always the greatest reality TV show of all time: Taskmaster UK, and the other good British panel shows including Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, QI, and Hypothetical. All are up on the web in various locations.

Or read a book.

I didn’t sign up to be the modern Kafka.

I just wanted to make sure people understood what fascism is, since it’s resurgent and spreading everywhere you look.

The dystopian corporate control of society continues at rapid pace. So many willingly cede their freedom to unelected, unaccountable profiteers without a second thought. You do enough of that, you get a Blade Runner styled hell on earth.

The recent rise of the billionaire oligarchs meddling in our lives and in our governments should be a flashing alarm to anyone with even half a brain, but they tend to worship the overlords rather than fight them. It’s like the world was smarter a century ago when “Robber Barons” were understood to need reining in. Today, they make them president and die trying to keep them in power after they lose elections.

Perhaps Facebook relies more on small-time ad purchases than it does government contracts (and I have spent money there). So, maybe they aren’t completely entangled in government/corporate “partnerships” yet. That may bear on my specific case. But, the chilling effect of erasing people from platforms when they say things your bosses don’t like remains a serious problem right here, right now.

ADDITIONALLY

My Facebook account is now BROKEN–deliberately? Maliciously? Is this plan D? Of course, there’s no one to talk to about it. Welcome to the machine, my son.


While I can post on my main page, I cannot post on any of the sub pages I have created there. It freezes up with a little bar that only says “Share to a Page.” My posting option is removed on all the sub-pages. This is a type of ban that may be intentional on their part, and/or it may go away after 90 days, as that was the original ban.

Remember, all this corporate harassment is simply for posting the definition of fascism, as people don’t want to know.
