ZEITGEIST, The Movie - The Documentary of All Documentaries

If you are going to watch a documentary, make sure it is ZEITGEIST, The Movie. This experimental production brings different perspectives of the human history together to explain the world of today. It's not a pretty picture but it shows you the light at the end of the tunnel.

Make sure you watch this movie to the end, these may well be the most enlightening 2 hours of your life.

Busy Beee

Dear reader,

Even though you never comment on my posts, I am sure that you are very disappointed by the lack of updates on this blog lately, and so I would like to apologise for that. You see, I've been very busy posting UFO videos on this blog's sister, UFO Watcher.

So, if you want a break from today's depressing politics and current affairs, pop in for a visit and say "hi". There are many things out there that you're missing out. ;-]

Cheer up,

Mark Thomas - UK Arms Trade

This is an excerpt from Mark Thomas Comedy Product series 3 episode 2 aired by Channel 4 in 1999. In this clip Mark Thomas comments on the state of the UK arms industry and trade. It's not a pretty picture but Mark still manages to make it humorous.

I wonder how much things have changed since this was broadcasted 8 years ago. Knowing governments, probably not much.

Documentary: Manufacturing Consent

Last week's documentary was one of my favourite movies of Noam Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media. This documentary was released in 1992 but it still fully applies to the mass media today.

Chomsky argues that mass media are profit-driven corporations, which push forward the agendas of society's dominant elite groups.

Think of that the next time you switch on "the tube", if you have one that is. If instead (like me) you rather surf the net, there's plenty of stuff to suit every mood at YouTube.com.

Go internet! :]
