A Fresh Look To Telling A Story ...

Relating to the previous post, "A Scanner Darkly" is a new movie just dropping in on Australia at the moment.

"A Scanner Darkly is set in suburban Orange County, California in a future where America has lost the war on drugs. When one reluctant undercover cop is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode. It is a cautionary tale of drug use based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences."

as with 300, this is jaw dropping stuff. not to mention it's core themes of social chaos in a not too distant future. or is it already here? for a designer, artist, creative, the images should say the 1000 words :) aint that cell animation refreshing? a new way to see movies, actors, and an unfolding story. now get off ya butts and go see it in a cinema. support the good stuff before its taken away from your eyes by big brother.



Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Think ...

Sci Fi or real life ?

MPAA - Motion Picture Association of America. second cousin to the RIAA - Recording Industry Association of America. the world leaders in anti piracy measures, and big brother tactics. wake up world, your freedoms are being taken away day by day, and your letting it happen.

MPAA head Director: Dan Glickman
"Just because you buy a DVD to watch at home doesn't give you the right to invite friends over to watch it too. That's a violation of copyright and denies us the revenue that would be generated from DVD sales to your friends," said Glickman.

is that scary or what ? i mean when are theses corporate organisations gonna stop milking you for every dollar you have?

Los Angeles , CA - "The MPAA is lobbying congress to push through a new bill that would make unauthorized home theaters illegal. The group feels that all theaters should be sanctioned, whether they be commercial settings or at home." "We have a right to know what's showing in a theater." .......

*hits head on wall* .. by theatre they mean YOUR HOME LIVING ROOM ! where are our rights? our rights of freedom to watch whatever the hell we want to when we want to.

"The bill would require that any hardware manufactured in the future contain technology that tells the MPAA directly of what is being shown and specific details on the audience. The data would be gathered using various motion sensors and biometric technology."

when do we all stand up and say .. this is going too far? is it before or after they begin sticking registration chips in our arms? before or after they begin sticking in GPS toll tracking devices in our cars or phones? before or after they dispose of cash and hand you a plastic card or microchip to buy your groceries using electronic money? before or after they flood your market with industry standard, chemically engineered foods full of vitimins and chemicals? Think for yourself. Turn off the TV. Question everything.
