Centcom Skewed ISIS War Intel To Be More Upbeat

…conclusions were altered to put the whole thing in a better light, which would also explain why reports with clearly negative revelations, like the one about a solid year of US airstrikes not significantly weakening ISIS, were incongruously concluded with claims that the war is going fine.

Fossil fuels subsidised by $10m a minute, says IMF

So all that endless bullshit you hear about “free markets,” well how do trillions of dollars of tax subsidies going to the most polluting industries around factor in? The dinosaurs still rule the earth today…

The $5.3tn subsidy estimated for 2015 is greater than the total health spending of all the world’s governments.

UNABLETOPOST-1 copy

Facebook has me unable to post any more comments that challenge Moyers’ slanted so-called “news.” Daily his feed posts a dozen different articles, mostly attacking Republicans, but coincidentally letting the Democrats slide, even in the face of glaring hypocrisy.

In a futile effort to keep him honest, I responded to these obvious hypocrisies. His gaggle of idiots mindlessly defended the indefensible (predictably). But Moyers himself never responds, except via this censorship.

Today he’s apparently taking on JP Morgan, while last week he was lauding Eric Holder, the man who let JP Morgan and friends rape and pillage without consequence. Shame this makes it nowhere near his deluded audience:

I think the zinger that got me banned by the poobah was this gem, which I may put on a shirt:

PARTISAN NEWS IS NOT REAL NEWS

Apparently, by censoring dissenters, Moyers has copped to the “partisan news” charge. Guilty. Half the story is a full lie, you know. That’s how this country is so utterly fucked up the ass, most of the people believe one party’s propaganda or the other’s. Neither is telling the full truth, and that is a MAJOR FUCKING PROBLEM, MR. BILL MOYERS.

“When the doctrine of allegiance to party can utterly up-end a man’s moral constitution and make a temporary fool of him besides, what excuse are you going to offer for preaching it, teaching it, extending it, perpetuating it? Shall you say, the best good of the country demands allegiance to party? Shall you also say it demands that a man kick his truth and his conscience into the gutter, and become a mouthing lunatic, besides?”

(Article is from May 2013, and newer camera models release constantly. The principles remain the same.)

So you’re confused by all the choices, and you don’t know what they really all entail?  Differences in cameras may not seem all that important, until you look carefully, as audiences tend to do when the image is thirty feet tall.

A Little How-To

Note: Images were grabbed from the net to illustrate the points in the text.  Don’t’ take them as the end-all.  As any cinematographer who cashes checks will likely say: “Test.”

Okay film, glorious 35mm Kodak or Fuji filmstock.  Here’s why:

Inception used 35mm + 65mm Kodak Vision3 250D 5207, Vision3 500T 5219 INCEPTION

Promised Land used 35mm Fuji Super F-64D 8522, Eterna Vivid 250D 8546, Eterna Vivid 500T 8547promised-land06

The Wrestler used 16 mm Kodak Vision2 200T 7217, Vision3 500T 7219 the-wrestler-3

Rolling film is expensive, and sometimes the directing style dictates lots of footage, always running improvisation.  Digital can be more amenable to that situation.

Dynamic range is important for capturing smoothly rolled off highlights, before they overexpose to pure white.  This single factor is perhaps the most crucial ingredient for achieving a digital camera look that mimics real film.  Kodak Vision 3 is rated at 13 stops according to the company.  Every F stop of dynamic range doubles the amount of light captured.  Thus, a digital camera with more dynamic range requires a lot more data storage as well as a sensor that is capable of capturing such high contrast of light in the first place.

A unique characteristic of film is the grain structure in the crystals, which comprise the image.  This grain also helps soften the areas of pure whiteness that occur when a part of a negative is blown out to overexposure.  Grain adds a subtle texture to the frames as they flow by at 24 frames per second, which is often lacking in digital footage.  Grain is sometimes mimicked to make digital footage look more like film, but it seldom achieves the total look of actual film, which responds uniquely to light that hits the various layers of emulsion.  Grain can also be too heavy in the case of low-light or underexposed film.  For low-light night shooting, a digital camera with a more sensitive sensor may make more sense.

Film grain also changes depending upon the size of the negative, as an 8mm image blown up to the same size as a 35mm image would show magnified grains.  A happy medium is 16mm, with 4 times the resolution of 8mm.  Well shot 16mm film provides a medium level of grain to the image consistent with crime and grindhouse horror cinema.  For example, The Walking Dead series has been captured on 16mm Kodak film (7219).
