It was with profound disappointment that we learned last night from news reports that 30 minutes of Spike Lee’s HBO docuseries addressing the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 would be removed from the final episode, which airs 20 years to the day since the murder of our loved ones.

9/11 Family Members Call on HBO to Restore Final Episode of Spike Lee Series

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.

But there’s more I could say…

According to Reuters, the Pentagon has spent 8.5 trillion dollars since 1996, without ever completing a required annual audit.”

What’s that?


Unaccounted for in the Pentagon, a perpetual, intractable problem that happens to be: BUSINESS AS USUAL.

The entire student debt of the United States is only $1.3 trillion, for comparison sake.

And corporate America demands you continue business as usual, while Green Party candidate–who can’t even get on a comedy interview segment–wants to reprioritize us away from a brutal murderous empire to something more sustainable and educated.

I don’t think I’ve said much about these guys.  They had a lot of laughs, a lot of near misses and some wtf moments in their 5 year run.  But there’s enough there to amuse most anybody if you look.


HBO picks up the world’s largest participatory art project.  More info.


If you haven’t seen the original TED talk by French artist JR, it’s awe inspiring.  I should have posted it sooner.
