Gnarls Barkley: Crazy

Love the song, love the lyrics.

I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place.
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space

And when you're out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?

And I hope that you are having the time of your life
But think twice, that's my only advice

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you're in control

Well, I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
I think you're crazy
Just like me

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them
Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy

Uh, uh

9/11 Truth: What's Being Covered Up?

CIA analyst for over 27 years, Ray McGovern and a mother of a 9/11 victim talk about what it is like to ask questions about the events of 9/11. A must watch to the end, especially if you believe in the official story of events.

The Truth About Autism

"...27-year-old Amanda Baggs — who is autistic and doesn't speak — describes in vivid and articulate terms what's going on inside her head as she carries out these seemingly bizarre actions.

The YouTube post, she says, was a political statement, designed to call attention to people's tendency to underestimate autistics. It wasn't her first video post, but this one took off. "When the number of viewers began to climb, I got scared out of my mind," Baggs says. As the hit count neared 100,000, her blog was flooded. At 200,000, scientists were inviting her to visit their labs. By 300,000, the TV people came calling, hearts warmed by the story of a young woman's fiery spirit and the rare glimpse into what has long been regarded as the solitary imprisonment of the autistic mind. "I've said a million times that I'm not trapped in my own world,'" Baggs says. "Yet what do most of these news stories lead with? Saying exactly that.""

Free Energy Generator

Two Australians have invented an energy generator which relies purely on magnetic fields to produce enough energy (24KW) to power a house. If this is the case, soon we can all free ourselves from the energy grid as we generate our own energy. They say this can even replace the combustion engine, in which case we could all live in peace.

"It's just a ride." ~ Bill Hicks (1961-1994) RIP

Documentary: The War On Democracy

The War On Democracy is a powerful new documentary from award winning journalist and film-maker John Pilger.

"It examines the role of Washington in America's manipulation of Latin American politics during the last 50 years leading up to the struggle by ordinary people to free themselves from poverty and racism.


The film reveals similar CIA policies to be continuing in Iraq, Iran and Lebanon. The rise of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez despite ongoing Washington backed efforts to unseat him in spite of his overwhelming mass popularity, is democratic in a way that we have forgotten or abandoned in the west. True Democracy being a solid 80% voter turnout in support of Chavez in over 6 elections."

Some Wisdom by Leo Tolstoy

Lev Nikolayevitch Tolstoy (9 September 1828 – 20 November 1910) was a Russian writer, philosopher and social activist; his name is usually rendered into English as Leo Tolstoy, and sometimes Tolstoi.

"If I were told that what I shall write will be read in twenty years by the children of today and that they will weep and smile over it and will fall in love with life, I would devote all my life and all my strengths to it."

"The hero of my tale, whom I love with all the power of my soul, whom I have tried to portray in all his beauty, who has been, is, and will be beautiful, is Truth."

"I know that most men — not only those considered clever, but even those who are very clever and capable of understanding most difficult scientific, mathematical, or philosophic, problems — can seldom discern even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as obliges them to admit the falsity of conclusions they have formed, perhaps with much difficulty — conclusions of which they are proud, which they have taught to others, and on which they have built their lives."

"To evoke in oneself a feeling one has once experienced, and having evoked it in oneself, then by means of movements, lines, colors, sounds, or forms expressed through words, so to convey this so that others may experience the same feeling — this is the activity of art."

"Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here."

Documentary "Money as Debt" and sequel

We are all tired of hearing about the economic crisis, about the sky rocketing national debt and how we all have to tighten our belts to pay such debt through higher taxes and diminishing public services. However, despite being constantly bombarded by the news of the symptoms of said economic crisis, do we really understand how it all started?! Do the economists even question the foundation of the problem, which is the how the economic system was set up in the first place?

The following animated presentations of 'Money As Debt' (47:07) and the sequel 'Promises Unleached' (1:17:30) explain, in very simple terms, what money is and how it is being created. The sequel, explores the baffling, fraudulent and destructive arithmetic of the monetary system that holds us hostage to a forever growing debt and how we might evolve beyond it.

The movies contain several revelatory quotations from influential people from the past. But one that really hit home was this one by Leo Tolstoy:

"Money is a new form of slavery, and distinguishable from the old simply by the fact that it is impersonal — that there is no human relationship between master and slave."

After watching this revealing short documentary it becomes clear why there are communities creating their own currency.

Typical UK MP Salaries

"A 'bog standard' backbench MP is paid a salary of £60,675 a year. They get 18 weeks holiday a year, and can participate in a generous final income pension scheme.

They can claim up to £90,505 as a staffing allowance, and many use this to 'employ' members of their own families. They are also entitled to an Incidental Expenses Provision of up to £21,339 per annum, and an Additional Costs Allowance of up to £23,083 a year, to cover nights spent away from home.

For the year 2006/07, the average expenses claim for each MP was an incredible £135,773."

Peter Dale Scott: Recipe for a Sucessful Revolution

Peter Dale Scott is a former Canadian diplomat and English Professor at the University of California, Berkeley as well as a poet, writer, and researcher.

In this clip he explains what the real problem is in the USA (and the world) and what steps are necessary to bring about a successful revolution, which by the way has already started and won't be televised.

Don't be afraid, he's not an extremist of any sort :) - His words are very inspirational.
