Halloween Movie: Night of the Demons (1988)

October 31, 2018 Leave a comment

In my opinion, Night of the Demons is a good representative of horror films made during 1985-1993 time period. It has also become somewhat of a cult movie over the years. The movie has a pretty decent story, reasonably good acting and production values- which is surprising when you realize that it was made for about 1.2 million. I actually enjoyed watching it.

The very short version of the story is as follows: Ten teenagers party at an abandoned funeral parlor on Halloween night. When an evil force awakens, demonic spirits keep them from leaving and turn their gathering into a living Hell. Find out who lives and who is killed..

NSFW-ish Music Video: ‘Cream’ by Tujamo and Danny Avila

October 26, 2018 3 comments

Here is a NSFW-ish music video (on both YouTube and Vimeo) which I came across earlier this week. The quality of music is mediocre, but a couple of the dancers really caught my attention. In my opinion, the video is NSFW-ish rather than definitely NSFW because of what the dancers are wearing or not wearing. In many parts of the civilized world, a woman wearing only a thong in public (e.g. at the beach or pool) does not cause the same “moral outrage” that it does in sad puritanical countries such as USA. Will post something more intellectual tomorrow.

Also, this video does not start until you deliberately click on it- so don’t complain that you were not aware that it contains topless dancers playing around with whipped cream.

Interesting YouTube Channel: Rambalac

October 3, 2018 Leave a comment

As some of you know, the majority of JBloggers and Jvloggers are white attention-whores using Japan (and Japanese people) to build up an internet presence- especially on YouTube. Did I also mention my disdain for click-baity content? There are only so many times you can watch a white guy or girl visit japanese restaurants, traditional hotels and nightspots before it becomes boring.

But once in a while, you do come across a YT channel which actually has unique, interesting and well-shot content. The channel linked to in this post contains a number of long walks through various locations in Japan. It helps that the videos are well stabilized, without commentary and have footage of locations that are normal rather than touristy.

Clip # 1: Backstreets of Japan at Night. Not sure about the precise locations shown in this sequence, but the photographer displays a high degree of familiarity with this area. Two things struck me about this video: a] Even the low-rise parts of Japanese cities are pretty crowded with buildings and b] Even these less busy mixed-use parts are really clean and well maintained.

Clip #2: Morning Walk through Yoyogi Park. Contains footage of a large and picturesque park during the cherry blossom blooming season. It is interesting that they can build and maintain such nice public places in Japan, especially when you compare it (and others like it) to the dismal state of equivalent public spaces in USA. Says a lot about the priorities of both cultures.

Interesting YouTube Channel: Ancient Architects

September 23, 2018 4 comments

Sometime ago, I came across an interesting channel on YT. Before linking to it, let me quickly describe what it is about and my thoughts about it. To make a long story short, the channel is about whether conventional histories of ancient civilizations are true. Some might say that it has an ‘Ancient Aliens‘ vibe to it and there is some merit to that view. Then again, I have been around long enough to know that “scientific” consensus based on fragmentary or selective evidence is the secular version of religious dogma.

So should you believe everything on that channel? Of course not! Having said that, he does tackle topics for which conventional explanations provided by “credentialed experts” are pretty dubious sounding. For example, I have never been satisfied by explanation that the three great pyramids of Egypt were built by 4th dynasty Pharaohs for the simple reason that their names barely appear on those monuments. Contrast that to inscriptions on most other large ancient buildings in Egypt that go to considerable lengths to highlight name of Pharaoh who built them.

Similarly, Greek travelers to ancient Egypt wrote about certain large structures which have not yet been rediscovered. What happened to them? The conventional explanation for their absence is that they did not exist in first place, and that could well be the case. However a few of those alleged structures were quite large and in areas containing other evidence of human occupation and construction, so one cannot discount possibility that they have not yet been discovered.

I should also point out that unlike many others whose explanations for large ancient monument involves intervention by aliens from space, this guy sticks to idea that humans built it. Furthermore, we now know that humans at end of last ice-age were far more advanced, capable and organised than was previously believed. In my opinion, his videos about specific topics are closer to reality while those on meta topics are far more speculative.

Clip # 1: Is Atlantis located on Rockall Bank, a now-submerged island, located northwest of Ireland? Many parts on that bank are less than 100 m below the surface, which would place them above sea level as late as 11k or even 9k years ago. Given that ocean current patterns in Atlantic were also a bit different at that time, it could also have even have been more habitable than today.

Clip # 2: This one is about the lost pyramids of lake Moeris in Egypt. As I mentioned previously, certain large monuments described in considerable detail by ancient Greek and Roman travelers to Egypt have not been rediscovered. The two pyramids and associated buildings in what was once an artificial lake is one of the better known instances of a ‘lost’ monument complex.

Timeline of Stefan Halper’s Insertion into Trump Presidential Campaign

May 30, 2018 2 comments

Over the past two-three weeks, corporate MSM outlets have been shouting from the rooftops that the Obama administration and deep state did not spy on Trump’s presidential campaign- even when it is clearly obvious that they did so. Even worse, the guy involved has a history of being involved in such “unofficial” intelligence operations. To be more specific, Stefan Halper was a central character in a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Ronald Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush. And yes, he got caught that time too.

So we have a spy of mediocre ability with strong ties to the Bush family was miraculously sent to “investigate” the Trump presidential campaign after it became that Jeb Bush was unlikely to win the republican presidential ticket. What an amazing coincidence! And yes, he got involved in spying on the Trump campaign at least a few weeks before George Papadopoulos drunkenly boasted to an Australian diplomat about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton. And this brings us the question of who was involved in giving him the order to start spying? and why? I was going to write a medium length post about it. Then I came across a recent clip on The Jimmy Dore ShowYouTube channel which pretty much says what I was going to write anyway.

Interesting YouTube Clips about how Democrats will Screw Up in 2018

May 5, 2018 1 comment

Here are two interesting and recent clips from the Jimmy Dore Show channel on YT. While each is about a seemingly different topic, both address the issue of how Democrats are likely to screw up and lose the 2018 election- inspite of the golden opportunity provided to them by Trump’s record unpopularity. Of course, this has been the case for at least a couple of decades. Also, check out some of the other recent video clips on his channel.

The first clip is about how disenchantment with Obama, in the black community, is now too strong for democrats to confidently expect the kind of voter turnout they enjoyed among that electoral group in 2008 and 2012. As some of you might remember, I wrote a three-part series on that very topic a few months ago. While democrats could certainly motivate potential voters by promising and implementing populist policies to help their most loyal voters, you can bet that they won’t do anything like that.

The second clip is part of a long interview with Glenn Greenwald, in which he talks about how establishment democrat obsession with “Russia” and “Putin” has attained the level of a sacrament within that party. He also talks about how this establishment obsession is blocking their ability to talk about issues which most voters actually care about, thus alienating them even further. As many of you might also recall, I have written more than a few posts on this topic (link 1, link 2, link 3 and link 4).

Vintage Kanye West: “George Bush Doesnt Care About Black People”

April 25, 2018 3 comments

As many of you must have heard by now, Kanye West posted some tweets earlier today in which he expressed a measured degree of support for Donald Trump. As expected, every corporate media outlet and hordes of SJWs on twitter are trying to portray him as some sort of dangerous and unbalanced idiot. Then again, this would not be the first time the corporate media was upset about something Kanye West said about politics or politicians.

Here is the famous clip from 2005 where Kanye gives one probably the most succinct (and highly unexpected) analysis of the policies of Bush43 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Some of you might also remember that slavish corporate media outlets were highly critical of him at that time. Ironically, his televised comments went on to open the floodgates for widespread and open public criticism of the many failings of Bush43 administration.
