Since June 2007, the movie “ZEITGEIST” has been taking the internet by storm. As of December 2007, ZEITGEIST had already gathered more than 6 million hits, making it one of the most popular online videos of all time. In fact, on Google video, ZEITGEIST was the no. 1 video for the months of November and […]

I agree with your analysis.  Once I saw Zeitgeist, certain important pieces fell together for me.  I do not agree with everything in it, but it is eye opening in many ways.

Astrology has always been a key part of most religions, and denying its role in Christianity is not, um, “candid” to be polite about it.  Some of the symbolism (e.g. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) was sufficiently well hidden that it survived the various purges (notably the “Council of Nicea”), and those pieces are telling.  I could go on at length, but this is a good place to stop.  Again, thank you for this piece.  (Please do feel free to expand on this topic!)


Happy Birthday: Kiefer Sutherland

Born: December 21, 1966 in Paddington, London, England, UK

[on his father, actor Donald Sutherland, being a huge fan of his television series 24 (2001)]: I remember last year we were having dinner and I made the mistake of saying I had to go home soon because we’re shooting x, y and z. And he got cross with me, because I had told him what I was shooting, just not thinking about it, and obviously gave away a piece of the plot.

Twelve years ago, if anyone had suggested I would do TV, I would have laughed at them. Film actors didn’t do TV. But when I was finally offered 24 (2001), it came like a saving grace. I owe it a lot.

Married to: Ted Turner (21 December 1991 – 22 May 2001) (divorced)

[on the infamous photo of her posing with a Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun] The biggest lapse of judgment in my life. I don’t regret going to North Vietnam. I’m glad I went. I’m glad I did everything I did, except that.

Sometimes all I can do when I walk down the street, and this matters especially in New York, is look people in the eye. Especially homeless people and prostitutes. I mean, you don’t see streetwalkers so much here, but I’ve been in cities where you run into streetwalkers. Looking them in the eye and saying “hello” I know makes a difference…

Born: December 21, 1948 in Washington, District of Columbia, USA

Married to: LaTanya Richardson Jackson (14 January 1980 – present) (1 child)

[on how his look was created in Pulp Fiction (1994)] “Quentin Tarantino wanted Jules to have a big afro. He sent this PA out to buy a wig. She went to South Central and bought this jeri-curl wig. And Quentin was going off, saying, ‘It’s got to be an afro because he had this whole blaxploitation thing’. I told him, ‘That’s the South Central look.’ You look at Ice Cube and NWA. Guys had all this shit dripping down their necks. I had already grown the sideburns out and the mustache. It was perfect. Total Gangster.”

American Ultra

Saw American Ultra. Loved it. It is obviously a parody. This article has important counterpoints. Still recommend seeing the movie. Best laughs I have had in some time. Even funnier if the you read various articles on government conspiracy (some of which are true (as Snowden showed us) and some of which are likely not).

Happy Back To The Future Day!

Stephen Liddell

There are two ways to waste our lives on this planet.  One is the way that some keep getting excited  for the next Apocalypse, seemingly a little pointless in my mind and I can say that having survived several hundred in my life thus far, in fact there is another due today also.   Well I guess I can take part in that if nothing better is going on but it better be like the one portrayed in This is The End and not some boring asteroid strike or even worse another no-show.

This is the end How I want to spend my apocalypse… be warned, the guy on the right is going to eat and drink all your supplies.. and second from left turns into  demon!

The other pointless way is to do as I do and mark off certain calendar dates because they feature prominently in films and TV shows that I…
