If you love science, the stars and sky like me… you have to do this course. Most of the vids are already on here and I’m sure if you’re resourceful you’ll find other ways to watch them. For me the lightning, zodiac, eclipses and celestial sights courses were tops.
Celsius 41.11: [From www.imdb.com – This film attempts to correct the record when it comes to the left’s attacks on President Bush, 9/11 and the war in Iraq and Kerry’s 20-year tenure in the Senate.] Starts off with our fav dumbass talking about fighting terrorism. And related clips. Then audio stating that ‘these words need to be said by someone on national TV “There is no terrorist threat”, there is no great terrorist threat’.
Enter Title (Celsius 41.11 The temperature at which the brain… begings to die.) Most clips of anti Bush, anti war protests. Lost of reasons, stories, fact and figures why everyone says ‘anybody but Bush’. Issues on polls. The news media funked up! Blacks turned away from voting? Talk of Al Gore trying to steal the election especially by throwing away absentee votes. Dude says in any case Bush would have still won after recount. Damn it! Michael Moore quote – “[Americans] are possibly the dumbest people on the planet… Our stupidity is embarassing.” Bush gives a deep speech. Clinton blamed for not being on the right track to prevent 9 11. Lol dont know if its really the political leaders or lookalikes but they’re in the 3 ‘no evil’ monkey poses.
CIA complains about ridiculous protocol about getting permission. Clinton Administration blamed. Say’s Clinton did not like CIA or read their daily briefings. Patriot Act comes up. Why use it with the mob but not with terrorists. Michael Moore quote – “USA Patriot Act is really a gross misnomer. This law is anything but patriotic. The “Patriot” act is as un American as Mein Kamph.” Debates about everyone admitting they did know about WMDs. Tony Blair does his thing in parliament and this sheep on the benches bleat away.
Everyones assessments say the same. Were all these countries wrong? Sadam certainly was a threat. “9/11 has taught us that terrorism against American interests ‘over there’ should be regarded just as we regard terrorism against America ‘over here’. In this same sense, the American homeland is the planet.” – 9/11 Commission Report, pg. 362. “The statements on Iraqi attempts to buy uranium from Africa… were well founded.” (WHY THE THREE DOTS!!!!???) “Iraq continues to be a safehaven… for groups and individuals who direct violence against the United States.” Sadam was very blind to what was happening around him and the country or the people. Talks about Americans being killed by Middle Eastern terrorists ever since 1979 (Iranian Revolution). Oh my god! The number of dates and places all over the world! All aimed at American diplomats and civilians. So USA’s been really passive and turning the other cheek till now ay.
Michael Moore quote – “Hey, here’s a way to stop suicide bombings – give the Palestinians a bunch of missile-firing Apache helicopters and let them and the Israelis go at each other head to head . . . they can just blow each other up and leave the rest of us the hell alone.” Debates on different leaders approaches to terrorism. Pre-empt or not? Bush made to look like the right man for the job, Kerry made to look inept. “Once the danger fully materialized, evident to all, mobilizing action is easier – but then may be too late.” – 9/11 Commission Report, pg. 350. Over to John Kerry and how bad he wants to be president. Exploiting his service in Vietnam. John Kerry quote – “I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared – seared in me.” Others claim his statement to be a lie. Kerry would have been arrested. Lol the grandmother of all flip-flops. One minute he wants to be a hero another he’s a protester. Boy do they tear him up.
Back to vindicating Bush. They ridiculed Lincoln, Regan, etc but like Bush they were optimists. Okay? Bunch of cute kids pics and happy couples and families.
The director goes off to investigate all this fuss between and around the murders of 2Pac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G/Biggie Smalls. The book I’d read couple of years back said 2Pac was shot and lost one of his plums so used to be teased as 1Pac… well apparently he’d whipped his bollocks out for his biological father just to prove he’s still all man. Peeps in the interview always talk about Big like he was a loveable kinda sweetheart hehehe. And even though Big didn’t really live a ghetto life he was always fascinated by it.
So basically his gangsta rhymes were kinda fake but which gangsta rapper aint these days. Apparently the real war was between Suge Knight (Deathrow) and Puff Daddy (Bad Boy). After Pac’s incident the FBI apparently fed him bull about Big being the one behind the shootings. Also Pac claimed he had better money and better offers so wanted to leave Deathrow for another label after he got paid (he was due $10 million) so Suge was behind his murder coz Pac was his main man (cash cow). Hell the DA even feared Suge, then again dudes temper is famous e.g. dangling Vanilla Ice… I’d also read that Suge did the same to Kurupt and Das and something about setting the dogs on them or along those lines. But when Pac was alive him and Suge used to love watching The Untouchables and feel even more gangsta.
One of the bodyguards got death threats from dirty cops after Deathrow got news of the media so he told a lie to avoid problems and bla bla. Investigator got similar threats. Now another dirty cop that was meant to be on the beat took the day off before Pac’s shooting. These same dirty cops used to hang at Deathrow off duty where so much happened, one even had a Pac shrine in his house. They even used to attend parties in ‘Bloods’ colours, plus they used to get the ‘hos’ to have orgies and stuff like that. The bookkeeper confesses about Suge giving the cops a quarter million bribe. Lot of folks said 2Pac was very inspiring and cool but after hanging with Suge, became more and more of a PRIACK! Now over to Big. Something about his ashes… think his moms had to fight for the urn or something.
Charlie Baltimore reminisces of how we used to come downstairs in boxers alone and ack a fool. His moms reminisces how she’s be mad on the phone with him and he’s be like ‘say I love you’ but she’d hang up and hours later when she picks up the phone he’d still be waiting till she said it. Aw now aint that Notorious! Now Big’s buds have so much respect for the moms that they refused to talk to the director till the moms was like ‘its aiii’. Ok so the FBI were always following Pac and Big but on the day of Big’s shooting they vanished. The bodyguard puts the blame on dirty cops. Snoop puts the blame on Suge. Snoop used to be with Deathrow but now he’s scared of Suge. The Deathrow website even had a death threat to Snoop Dogg. Don’t know whats gonna happen coz Suge is either out of prison or nearly.
Suge was interviewed too and even though he has a good message to people he didn’t answer what was asked… for someone known to be an illiterate dumbass he sure has some deep talk. Apart from the crap he feeds about having a bullet in his head from Pac’s incident… its just glass. So anyway Bigs mom is gonna dig deeper while Suge and Pac’s mom are gonna continue making money from Pac’s records. Oh and Big’s mom set up some foundation for something to help some people just cant remember the ‘some’ bit.
Gets into details about how Bush suddenly won the election, what he’s been up to, how Osama was a buddy, how Iraq was a scapegoat, how people involved make profits especially from war and how they dupe the unemployed and similar to enrol for a war that promises them things that they/their families will basically not get. Best bit: When Bush was at a school chilling with the kids and someone came and whispered in his ear about the Twin Towers being attacked… DUDE JUST SAT THERE AND CONTINUED WHAT HE WAS DOING. Director shows what the soldiers are thinking when they are at the war zones. At first they’re either trigger happy or really boosted by their patriotism (really conned into believing it), then later their regrets and how they thought they’d be able to handle it all until faced with the situation (deaths and all). Lets not forget the obvious… the entertaining yet scary clips of our Ultimate Dumbass and his comments or inappropriate wisecracks. Some bits are leading but most of the footage is transparent. I just wanna know if Bush won the election as a ‘mistake’ why aint nobody come correct and fix it before it broke more and more? Special big up to Michael Moore for the film and showing the people things they needed to see. Especially trying to put their own people into the fear mode when there aint no real threats.
Gods Must Be Crazy 1 & 2: DVD has a specials section Journey to Nyae Nyae where they go check out the hero after all these years and how they’ve advanced with solar power and computers and Bush folks that can speak English now, etc. Plus what N!xau thinks about what a movie is coz he’s totally Bushman so these guys don’t have a clue. Now imagine him on tour being loved by all these people and seeing all this new stuff. One thing I do wanna say… those extra clicks in the movie sound more dubbed than what they really talk like. Another section where Buster Reynolds remembers Jamie Uys. Uys is the dude that created, wrote and directed the movie. Now you wanna wonder why its so funny, classic… one of the best movies…
1 coz of the lovely Bush folk and their culture/way of life.
2 you got animals, trees and of course bushes.
3 – You got slapstick humour, clumsy-around-women humour, terrorist humour, all kinda flavours.
4 – Back in the day their editing ways were way different and Jamie dude cut his own reels and tapes.
Then he’d figure you need a special shot between certain parts so went out filming again and insert these extra shots… now normally that would be irritating if it wont so gripping. Then again most folks wouldn’t even notice it unless it was pointed out. There’s also a web link to the Kalahari People’s Fund.
Hip Hop Colony: Went for the screening for this ‘movie’ about how hip hop jumped in the Kenyan scene, difficulties artists have, controversy, how producers and stars try to keep it alive and what their next steps are. One things for sure the artists have SKILLS. I was so inspired I started thinking up lyrics again. Unfortunately my UK lyrical miracle book seems kinda… dry. Whatever you do… please don’t get bootleg/pirate copies coz the artist focus their vocals for us so the least we could do is help em stay in and step up the game. I’s well impressed with Bamboo… he’s like the Wananchi Jay-Z. Best/Bad Bit: After watching stuff like this I feel that pull of music… don’t know if it’s a good thing or bad thing coz I start feeling that itch. One sweet day… one sweet day.
