OMG Policy !! vol. 1 made its debut this weekend. Early demos encouraging. Those who missed the launch will get other lulz ahead.
Full length Justin Bieber Keynote below . . .
I’ve probably watched “Brazil” a dozen or so times, although the last viewing was a few years ago. It’s definitely one of my favorite movies in any genre.
But thinking about that movie, Gilliam got quite a few things right about the future. Burdensome bureaucracy: check. Police/totalitarian/counterintelligence state: check. Run to some degree by people who are clueless, inept, and bumbling: check. A war against “terrorists”: check. The use of torture to fight said “war”: check. Malfunctioning infrastructure: check. The only thing he missed (and of course can be forgiven for since the movie wasn’t necessarily about the US) was the rise of white “christian” nationalism.
We’re glad to see the Ministry’s continuing its tradition of recruiting the brightest and best, sir.
¡Muchas gracias, Dr Strauss! Well….I’m a bit of a stickler for paper work. I mean, where would we be if we didn’t stick to the correct procedures?
re Anna Marie Cox: U mean, Doc
The full length Justin Beiber take on ¨soft power¨ was one of the funniest things I´ve read here in the bunker.
As you properly filled out a 27b/6 . . .
it’s up after the ‘more’
Great artwork, Doc.
If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely and we don’t try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war… our children will sing great songs about us years from now. — Richard Perle
