I think I called it back in 2005.

I recently watched 127 Hours  [BT], and it was great!

(Not embedding the trailer because I think it spoils the movie a bit.)

I like how some critics described it as "filming the unfilmable" - definitely a very innovative film, and it captures many of the emotions people "communing with nature" often feel, especially when things don't go as planned.  Very man vs nature vs himself...

Surprisingly, it's a very watchable film. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it even more palatable, given the remarkable struggle depicted.

Battle: Los Angeles


Eh. Kind of entertaining I guess. I wouldn't call it great by any means, though. The toughest and best fighter on that team was a woman -Air Force at that even, just another Hollywood angle to expect. Aliens invading LA is kind of funny if you look at the illegal immigration problem. And, I don't want to get into a spiel about the numerous military misrepresentations either...typical Hollywood. One would think they could hire REAL military experts to assist in the development and production of at least one movie per year. Let's see, Saving Private Ryan -not bad, The Dirty Dozen, pretty good, Patton, excellent...they have been slipping quite a bit lately. Maybe they believe most are just too stupid to recognize? I don't know.

General / Big Pharma Gets An Immunity From .GOV

Quote from article:
A U.S. Supreme Court decision has just given drug companies total liability protection for injuries and deaths caused by government mandated vaccines. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) called the decision a "betrayal" of the American consumer. In a 6-2 decision, the Court majority voted to reject substantial evidence that current law was fully intended to protect an American's right to sue a pharmaceutical corporation for injuries that could have been prevented if the company had elected to make a safer vaccine.
The court decision leaves parents with no way to hold vaccine makers accountable and no feasible way to get compensation for the injuries suffered by their children; furthermore, the decision removes all financial incentive for multi-national drug companies to make vaccines as safe as they can be.

Sickening, yet predictable. Guess what? Now big pharma can get away with making anything it wants, despite who it kills. Line up for those vaccines, people!

According to their own wording of the "law", anybody who actually bought the Liberty Dollars are also susceptible to being charged with counterfeiting...or terrorism, or whatever else they can trump up.

This is a disgusting fucking nation these days. Folks need to seriously wake up and clean house.

Add the numerous nuclear reactor explosions and the volcanic eruption, and these folks in Japan are experiencing 2012 full swing.

Found this video but havent watched it yet:
"Track Me If You Can"
Discovery Channel Documentary released in the year 2010. We live in a world where we are being constantly watched and monitored. What would it take to wipe the slate clean and live a life free of big brother? Security expert Aton Edwards takes the viewer on an amazing journey off the grid and under the radar. |
With Aton Edwards.
Length: 43 min 33 sec
Added: March 8, 2011 
Category: Documentary

I got this on a torrent a while back. Definitely a decent episode/documentary, but it isn't too helpful for those already well into this kind of thing...just a very vague primer at best.
I suggest reading JJ Luna's novel instead:

J.J. Luna:
How to Be Invisible: The Essential Guide to Protecting Your Personal Privacy, Your Assets, and Your Life (Revised Edition)
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books; Revised edition (March 18, 2004)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0312319061
ISBN-13: 978-0312319069


Or you if you can locate a "free" copy via scribd like I did, all the better.

Inside Job - about the recent financial crisis.

At the top of my NF Q now, though it's not out until the 8th.

It's just liberal propaganda.

Indeed, it is. Propaganda.

Spartacus is AWESOME.

I just watched "Case 39", it's about a demon child. Pretty good movie.

The Wild Within, a survival/hunting type of show which is surprisingly entertaining.

I've been receiving letters telling me to enrol to vote since I'm 18 now. It says "It is a legal requirement to enrol and failure to do so may result in a fine. So please ensure you post back your signed letter and enrolment forms within 14 days to avoid any follow-up action. I look forward to hearing from you soon."

I'm sure you do.

I've just been ignoring these letters, I can't afford to pay a fine of any amount and even if I could I wouldn't pay them, I'd rather go to jail.
Anybody have experience with this?

Failure to respond will have legal ramifications as well. I am not too familiar with Aussy law, but I can guess it is not too far detached from English rule or American codified law. You can probably send them a notarized letter explaining your case in the time they have allotted you. In this letter you can claim all your rights and explicitly note that you are not waiving any either, and that you refuse to accept their contract. By doing this, their legal avenue is effectively nullified and you can continue to go about your day in peace. Be sure to send it via certified post with signature request and make copies.

Corporatism is bad. And that's a gross understatement. Capitalism is good. Humans are fallible and corruptible. If we were a computer program, we would be considered a virus and deleted with extreme prejudice.
