I just learned something about you and it is blowing my goddamned mind. This is not a joke. It is not “blowing my mind” a la BuzzFeed’s “8 Things You Won’t Believe About … Continue reading Aphantasia: How It Feels To Be Blind In Your Mind

IN TIME (2011)

It is too sad to realize this phenomenal picture failed not only the cashier test, but even more so it passed the public opinion. Not getting the utmost attention it deserves. I want to put aside the esoteric symbolism used in this film [names of people and buildings, diamonds, cards, fashion, past-present-and future], and focus on … Continue reading IN TIME (2011)

ANNIHILATION

title: one way in, no way out. As above so below poster. It was what I feared the most. ANNIHILATION: The attempt to cinematographically capture LSD/DMT, and the fear of shimmering. Subtitle: the sixth practice of Tibetan watching television. What is television. What is perspective. What is watching something? What is persona? What is reality … Continue reading ANNIHILATION

Spoiler – There is no such thing.

Roger Ebert rightfully noted: "The characters in movies do not always do what we would do. Sometimes they make choices that offend us. That is their right. It is our right to disagree with them. It is not our right, however, to destroy for others the experience of being as surprised by those choices as … Continue reading Spoiler – There is no such thing.

MILK 2008: THE TWINKIE DEFENCE

THE BEST COUNTER-ARGUMENT AGAINST DEMOCRACY I’VE MET IN THE PAST YEAR. http://operawire.com/opera-meets-film-harvey-milk-as-a-20th-century-tosca/ Milk constantly talks about politics being a theater for him and when he arrives in City Hall, he notes that it is his new “theater.” Also interesting to note how his unstable lover took his own life. Considering the etymology for "Circus", and … Continue reading MILK 2008: THE TWINKIE DEFENCE

Zoolander No.2

List of Will Hariss “fake” tattoos. People really don’t think about this stuff because “they don’t have to” … How come he got tattooed in solitary confinement?? It may be “Fake”, but symbolically, overall this goes to say: "One may enter a prison and get out stronger, like me. You will enter prison, in my … Continue reading Zoolander No.2

Zoolander No.I

P.S. - The sequel title is stylized a-la "Chanel No.9" (french cologne) - which subsequently makes the first installment - "No.1". Considering the strange name - Zoolander, and its' connotation to biblical Noah (and his ark - ) the characters "No.I" make for the Russian variation of that name. The Russian connection - the transgender helper … Continue reading Zoolander No.I

Men In Black: Trilogy

P.S. - Another thing about how the MIB dynamic duo is portrayed. They are shown in accord to the “Chariot” tarot card, one white and one black. They mindlessly serve this chariot, the MIB office, and its leader - the new world order. Read between the lines: “This is only a fraction of our vast undermining … Continue reading Men In Black: Trilogy

Close encounters of the turd kind

"That was a close encounter of the turd kind but there won't be a pretty ending this time." -Alfred Hitchcock - “It’s a coincidence… (therefore) not scientific…” - (French) “This is a sociological phenomenon.” Present day is no day but a day when someone gets some present. The USA is again shown to be world-domineering … Continue reading Close encounters of the turd kind

THE GOOD SHEPHERD

“There's an old saying that victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan.” Eye of providence motif. Opening shot is of an eye looking through a magnifying glass. I would say that the “alpha and omega” rule is missing here, since the last scene depicts the signing of a contract, then the camera … Continue reading THE GOOD SHEPHERD

The Truman Show: Story of a Modern Moses

For a whole generation, this media piece symbolizes the personal struggle against the ultimate oppression and the very meaning of a "Golden cage". It stands for dreaming, taking a leap of faith, overcoming one's fears to redeem themselves. But let's see... I recently did a re-watch of TTS, and it seemed more strange than ever … Continue reading The Truman Show: Story of a Modern Moses

What was the point of Rick and Morty?

I recently answered this question on Quora. I'm gonna make this answer dual since someone said there is no conspiracy... P.S. - Notice that the title, with the names of the main characters, phonetically translates and means "Vacuum (nothingness) and Death (morbidity)". (No one ever calls Rick Sanchez - Ricardo Sanchez) Now here is the conspiracy: … Continue reading What was the point of Rick and Morty?

On Biorhythm charts

I recently found this system called Biorhythm. It is a graphic chart based on each individual's vital signs. Those are unique and are inherent on birthdate. A 'scientific' answer to those who don't believe in Tarot, but do not use Fitbit. Anyone could make a sketch on their own, but today every thinkable platform (either … Continue reading On Biorhythm charts

TextAloud 4: DIY AudioBooks

About ten (10) years ago, I discovered the format of Audio Book. I used to read printed paper books, but now I could do other activities while "reading" text.  I could do house chores, go for a walk, prepare meals, save money and valuable space. Recently I also moved to an Electronic book (Model: OnyxBoox: Caesar). … Continue reading TextAloud 4: DIY AudioBooks

Maybe order it online.    … Continue reading The Art of Freida Harris
