A11 work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

A few years ago I posted a link to Rob Ager's analysis of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange

Being a Kubrick fan, and a loon, I thought Ager had come up with some interesting, dare I say Illuminating, observations about the film and made a strong case that Kubrick himself was a bit
of a loon

Quite a lot of a loon actually

However, as Ager himself pointed out, just because Kubrick believed in the existence of certain fruity little clubs with a taste for occult practices, mind control and recreational global domination, that does not constitute proof that any of what Kubrick believed is real

All it proves is that Kubrick stuffed his films full of coded references and symbolism

Having said all that, here's some quality Old Skool loonery on the subject of Kubrick and NAZA's Apollo (television?) programme...

(edit 6/9/11 - sadly, the above video 'Kubrick's Odyssey' appears to have been pulled from Youtube after a complaint from its producer about, of all things, copyright violation)

It's worth the price of admission just for the rocket launch sequence at the end of Part 3 alone

After watching this, The Shining makes a shed load more sense than it ever did before

You're lucky I'm there To stop people doing the things That you know they are dying to do

See if you can tell which of the following images comes from where

One of them comes from a dystopic comic which encourages its adolescent readers to whack off on weapons porn, festishistic centrefolds of pitiless, fascistic lawmen and mental imagery of a society in ruins

The other comes from 2000AD

The Real (sic.) Source of the British Riots

I don't personally agree with everything Stefan Molyneux says or implies in the following bout of right wing libertarian axe-grinding but I still think it's worth a spin...

The interesting parts for me are not the assertions I agree with but the assertions I disagree with - and asking myself why I disagree with them


You read it here first

"Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week..."

Of course, one could persist in believing that the London riots were part of a fiendishly labyrinthine false flag op to
enable the Iranians to take the piss out of us; completely subverting the Western rhetoric supporting any further Middle East interventions in the process

Personally, I'm lumping the riots in with the exposure of Rupert Murdoch, the White Nationalist snafu in Norway and the curiously under-reported unrest in Israel as being possible examples that our world isn't quite as tightly controlled by an all-powerful, monolithic, Zionist elite as some of my fellow conspiranauts fear

Iranian Comedy Gold!!


And proof, yet again, that the secret of great comedy is timing

Personally, I'm not currently of the opinion that last night's street parties were deliberately allowed to erupt by a complicit establishment. The Hegelian Dialectic is not the the infallible tactic some conspiranoids would have us believe

It's all very well and good arranging for something shocking to happen so that the public will clamour for a more repressive state. However if, as occurred last night, the state comes across as being incompetent and powerless, this Hegel thing can easily blow up in your face

The probability of the Royal Air Force helping to bomb Syria, or anywhere else, better in the immediate future just reduced considerably

In a (very) perverse way, those looters last night may have saved some lives


Your cut out and keep souvenir map of the London Riots 2011

The latest news just in is that NATO has recognized a group of rioters in Hackney as being the legitimate government of Great Britain and will start bombing the shit out of schools and hospitals across the country tomorrow morning
