Gasland Part II

Synopsis- Filmmaker Josh Fox examines the potential long-term environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing, including poisonous water and earthquakes.

Rating: PG-13

Airdate: 01/01/13

Definition: What s fracking?

According to the website the dangersoffracking.com, fracking is

“Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside.”

In American, it means stealing land, taking a drill- drilling into the ground and injecting hazardous chemicals into the ground to get more natural gas but contaminate the water supply, kill the environment including the animals, trees, life etc. There currently is no “reverse action” for
fracking, once the chemicals are injected into the ground, they stay there. Many companies “frack” on fault lines and have been linked to causing the illnesses and diseases of untold numbers in the name of “cheaper fuel”. The sad thing is, when gas prices peak up by 10 cents Americans are ready to riot in the streets but don’t understand that we are running out of natural resources and the business mantra is- as long as everything stay fine in my life time, who cares about anyone else- including my kids because there is an extra dollar to be made.

Revelations 8:9-11 “And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.” “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;” “And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

Believe the accounts of the end of the world by the Bible or not but few can deny its ironic way of foreshadowing the actions and behaviors of man. Now unlike some, I feel there are some things in the Bible that should be taken literally and other things are a metaphor for something else. For this reason, I believe that fracking will lead the world to over 70% of the earths water supply being contaminated with pollutants. Researchers have already admitted to contaminating a large share of the earth’s water supply with fluoride to avoid cavities.

The second movie in the Gasland installment is designed to bring to light the torrid love affair between government and business- at the expense of the earth. Whether you believe the film or not, its an interesting 2-hour journey featuring interviews from Americans from the deep south to the northern most part to even the west. Those watching the film will come away with the mindset that America is the land of greed- if there were any doubt.

Best Quote of the Film

Representative Lon Burnam Texas 90th District

” This industry controls state government”

“there is really absolutely nothing new about this I mean we’ve been doing resource extraction at the expense of indigenous populations, in the entire history of this country. Kind of unique to the situation is you got a lot of upper middle class white people with college degrees gett’in ticked off because they’re being treated they way third world people have always been treated by corporate America”

If that one quote sums up the entire movie- than I can close up shop. What never ceases to amaze me is that an issue that has been an issue or an injustice for millennium- is only an issue and an environmental concern when it involves “white people” when “fracking” is an assault on private property everywhere. What really got me about this film is that Fox only interviewed “white” land owners and not “other” people. Not than any of that takes away from the content of the film but it was ironic- the land America stole for millions of other indigenous people is the same land that will go aways like the American Indians and Black Slave- America is its own worse enemy. All I have to saw, is that America is reaping a lot of all those bad greedy seeds that we sowed.

A Christian Film About Black Multi-Generation Poverty

Unemployment, seems to hit communities of color much harder. Unemployment rates in the Black Community are well over double the national average. A film that does not seek to answer the questions of why, much more than to provide an answer that has been a foundation of all Black Communities- faith based believing. Hiding in Plain Sight is a Christian film about one families struggle to find God in their homelessness.

It is hard being a man? Darius Blackmon, is leading a double life. Blackmon and his wife Josephine, faithfully attend church, give to the church and present the picturesque Christian family. No one knows, Darius and his wife lost their jobs after Darius fell ill. With the bills mounting, the family was kicked out and found themselves vying for rest stop bathroom time, fighting back tears, frustration and desperation as they try to get back on their feet.

As hope fades and time nears. The family begins to crumble.

Hiding in Plain Sight is a keeper. It is a film that should be aired in a Black Churches as so many people, of all colors, still think that struggling and asking for help are a sign of weakness and lack of faith. Multi-levels of generation poverty, prevent many Blacks from helping each other because any extension of help could result of the helper losing their benefits (be they social or personal).

Darius was a former star, college athlete that (at one point) had it all. Little did he know that life happens. With sickness, comes possible medical bills, with those bills come crushing debt that has crippled the entire middle class- in America. What made Darius’s situation worse, was his failure to ask for help and release his pride. With the help of the church, Darius may have, could have saved his home versus ‘saving face’ in agreeing to shell out $500 to help the church, when he needed help.

The movie puts in to focus, the responsibilities of every father, mother, child and church during periods of economic hardship to church members. Kevin finds that he is not alone in his struggle, as a popular teacher named Kevin Allen is struggling to ‘keep it all together’ as well.

A subtle theme of the movie was how far the American Black Community has moved away from the church, emphasis on education and community.  A real film, that does not shy away from it’s own message, Hiding in Plain Sight is a great film.

 

 

Berlin Station Review

Berlin Station is an American television (Epix) series centered around the wonderful world of multinational government intelligence. The first episode aired on October 16, 2016 and has been renewed for a 10-episode second season, to air in 2017.

CIA Analyst Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage) is sent to Berlin to plug the leaks exploited by a hacktivist, by the name of the Thomas Shaw. Undercover, Miller is supposed to uncover the source by masquerading as a field agent, in the CIA intelligence branch in Berlin, Germany.

Miller has a sordid history in Berlin, having grown up in West Germany, he is no stranger to intelligence as his mother Sara, was exposed as a double agent, engaging in an extramarital affair with a German agent, before being killed in a car bomb. Miller blames himself for her death, but has seemingly redeemed his family name in becoming a star officer turned analyst for the main CIA branch in Langley- he is now back.

Miller is soon greeted with an old friendenemy in Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans). DeJean, having worked a past mission with Miller that lead to Miller’s cushy analyst position in Langley, becomes a point of contentious as DeJean credits himself for painting Miller as a hero, after a risky mission.

In the Berlin Station, we are greeted with a cast of characters- ranging from the Chief Steven Frost (Richard Jenkins) sleeping with his secretary Sandra (Tamlyn Tomita), in between forging documents to pocket extra pay for himself and his Deputy (Leland Orser), who turns double agent for Tel Aviv after his wife takes his son to America and another Agent (Hector Dejean) leaking secrets, hacking his coworkers, sleeping with informants and furthering his own agenda. It is no wonder, this branch is hemorrhaging lives and information.

To be an expert in espionage, Daniel Miller is certainly very sloppy and less transparent. Watching the show is like watching an angry husband, track down why his wife has lied about not taking Pilates- except, at least in that instance, I could respect the fact that the guy was not masquerading as intelligence officer.

It is obvious that no one can be trusted, and any day- anyone could be ‘Thomas Shaw’ but the show was been very obvious about who Thomas Shaw really is, it may have been better to play off of viewer suspicion for another season or so, a lot like the movie Clue (who killed who, the world may never know).

What also makes this show a little boring is that, the writers have worked to include way to many flawed people. Every episodes pushes the characters as liars, cheats, thief’s, killer’s- no one is just a decent person- and no one is committed to actually doing their job. Add to this, the dispensability of people, informants and the general idea of right vs wrong. The Germans ally with the Americans, in the next moment they work with the Chinese, in the next we all align to whatever end. Everyone’s motives is suspect.

It is pretty obvious that Daniels Mother is not likely dead, and she is likely either still working for the CIA or she is likely the head of some underground drug ring- in both scenarios she is likely under deep cover- faking her death was some attempt at protecting Daniel (I can see the scene unfolding now).

Another thing that bugs me about this show is why sleeping with someone first, is the new way to exchange business cards. It is strange that engaging in passionate sex with someone, to only begin to question their morals and reasoning, afterwards is a little more odd. Additionally, some one in this group has bigger problems than Thomas Shaw, like HIV or AIDS, my vote is on Dejean.

It is unbelievable at the amount of oral and soft core porn that is in this show, and it is not even fairly distributed. I was looking forward to some guy-on-guy action, to only be greeted with an aggressive kiss, followed by a fade to black and a follow up scene of a messy bed, with two guys getting dressed versus seeing scenes where I can clearly see hetero-sex with female butt and boobs to male squatting and penis (hey-fair is fair- hey ladies watch this too).

The show does not even warrant a DVR date, just a reason to watch something that is fast forward friendly, but offers enough to plug into the lineup to conclude a Monday night.

Hemlock Grove: What to not do when meeting a vampire

Well, if you watched the latest season of Hemlock Grove, you will not a number of notable characters died. Many of them died stupidly because they did not learn anything from any vampire movie around. There are a handful of things, you never do when meeting a vampire.

netflix-hemlock-grove10.) Sacrificial crap is real

In demonic circles that are sacrificial aspects of demonology that is designed to achieve a given purpose or task. So, yes- there are many Letha’s of the world, they people are used in sacrificial rapes, killings, eatings etc. Usually, in these circles, certain traits are identified, cultivated and exploited. So, Do your homework. You don’t have to be a Christian to believe in the spirit realm.

9.) Blood

There is something about blood that drives demons crazy, I personally believe it is the one thing that separates us from them. We have blood, the life-force of life and our connection with God- they don’t. We are all sons and daughters of God. However, demons just exist. They were not created in the image of God, they were created with a task in mind and they are assigned to that. Once, millions of them rebelled they had to find new purpose and they did in terms of picking on God’s new creation that he favors over them. So, one thing is for sure, there is power in the Blood.

8.) Demons can have Babies but they are not capable of love

Mind you, they are absolutely incapable of love. Despite what Dr. Price said, Olivia is not capable of believe. Deception is in her nature. She believes that she wishes to change but fundamentally she is not capable. With that in mind, the end game was always to rip out Norman’s heart. She feed off of Norman’s lust, Marie’s dissatisfaction and Letha’s violation. Once all this was gone, she will tear down and set up shop in some other capacity.  I often hear that since Demons are spirits that can not have children– this is not true. They can have children. They can possess people and have children as a result.  Some people are born sons and daughters of the devil because they are devoid of compassion, love and humanity. Its is unexplainable at why these people are literally born this way but they are walking conduits of the devil.

7.) We have problems because of them

A good chunk of the world’s problems are the result of demon-like intervention. In Hemlock Grove, we see the direct intervention of Olivia that causes a marriage to break up, people to die and lives to be destroyed- understand that behind just about every one of your problems is a devil. They have had a direct hand in influencing people, situations and history. They will never hesitate to inject themselves to make a bad situation worse.

6.) They know more than you

It never ceases to amaze me at the amount of people who think they can outsmart a demon. Understand, they are older than you, were here before you and know a lot more than you. This has nothing to do with intelligence but use your street smarts to know when you are not prepared to confront them. Demon knowledge

5.) Demon Possession is Real- Be prepared

What makes the vampires in Hemlock Grove, unique is that they are ‘human’ on a level. They live, breathe, eat and drink but they have a gene that makes them susceptible to extreme urges to drink blood. I am not aware of this condition being real but understand that some peoples genes makes them arms of the devil. They are justs susceptible, so believe them when they say back off. Additionally, to a(n) extensive background check before you mess around with them. Also, ask about family history.

4.) Add Garlic as a Regular aspect to your diet

Yea, garlic may stink but having a salad for lunch may just save your life. Eat at least, one ringlet of garlic a day so that if you are bit- they are likely to not go in for a second helping. Plus garlic has a number of different skin related pluses.

3.) Cover Yourself

People who have weird eyes, always have an consistent need to bite people- preferably on the neck. Wear protection, if you find yourself confronting a vampire. Wear an extra scarf or some other form protection. Wear extra layers. Just keep in mind that its always winner when confronting an Ancient Demon or Vampire.

2.) Never Meet a Demon Alone

You know what both Marie and Norman did that was stupid- they confronted Olivia alone. Sorry, but the human life span is relatively short compared to many Ancient Demons. They have seen scores of generations rise and fall. With that knowledge of human nature, they may not know you personally but they tend to learn behavior. For that reason, never confront a vampire alone.

1.) Karma

What goes around, comes around. I did not shed a tear for Peter who slept with his brother wife, fathered a child, led to the death of his daughter and ex-wife– karma sucks.  Demons are experienced at ‘leading astray’– it is their specialty. They make their living off of corrupting and running- they love it– don’t get caught in the cross-hairs. Understand that a universal rule of the universe for both them and us is that ‘what goes around, comes around’. Living a life devoid, of respect, love, honor, temperance, self-control- equates to a wasted life. Norman wasted his life and unfortunately, took as many down with him as possible creating a mess of a situation.

Season 2 of Hemlock Grove Sucked

No, its not ‘just you’. I felt like the new Season of Hemlock Grove sucked too. Last season, they had something and this season they lost it. In this post, I  have pointed out 10 things that sucked about this season. I did not put these bullets in any specific order, only as they came up in my mind 24 hours after viewing Season 2. Alert: This does contain spoilers.

10.) The Definition of a super-whore- anyone who screws both a vampire and werewolf at the same time.

The world needs to apologize to Kristen Stewart because beside the drifter formally known as the breast bleeding Miranda- Stewart looks like a saint. So, Yes (spoiler alert),  both Roman and Peter sleep with the same girl at the same time and the situation was as awkward as it is written.

9.) Pedophilia is o.k. if you grow up to be a hot chick

You know how they introduced a love interest for Destiny? They brought in a former ice cream truck driver guy that used to eye molest Destiny as a young girl, at a local swimming hole. So, naturally she screws him at a funeral- I guess the ice cream truck was the ‘turn on’. The fact that he remembers her when she was young and yet he is screwing her. Just forget the fact that most gypsies are related. So, its o.k. to sleep with a random guy that remembers you from childhood, whom you meet at a funeral. O.k. so we are overlooking that fact that 90% of people that show up to a funeral are related or distant cousins. I got a new saying ‘everything’s o.k. when you in the gypsy camp’.

8.) Even for vampires anal rape hurts

Several times, we have seen Norman grab Olivia and nothing short of have very rough sex with her. So, in one scene, he realizes that she killed his wife Marie–his way of dealing with it–anal rapes. Is the solution to every problem with these people strange and awkward sex? Now, mind you I don’t know much about anal rape but I do feel the need to say that a– for the two of you- adding gel, oil or some type of cream can reduce the pain caused by the friction and tearing that will result. Get the imagery of putting a rusty old nail in an eve older hole- you need oil or you likely to get tinnitus. But yea- vampires don’t have sphincters I guess so they just fill up full of shit!

7.) More Vargulf please

What was the purpose of bringing back the Vargulf from Season 1?- To display Shelly’s animal like strength? I mean really? At what point in the writers room, did adding the dead Vargulf girl make any sense? It was unnecessary.

6.) Let’s copy aspects of Dune

The weird little girl, glowing blue eyes- etc. I was expecting a member of the House of Atreides to step out or a silk worm to gobble up the town. Some of the ideas this season, were lifted straight from the movie Dune.

5.) Piercings are gross

I am far from being a prude but I get sick when anyone takes a piercing out to further examine the body part. So, when you zoom in on a young lady removing a nipple piercing, I get a little sick. Sorry, it does not float my boat. This also goes for elaborate story telling tattoos- I don’t have to know you to see that you have poor decision making because you already have multiple tattoos. So, freaking and choosing to stay at a house where you begin lactating, you sleep with a werewolf and than a vampire and you are whisked away by a pterodactyl is not so far fetched. I believe you because you have tattoos.

4.) Ball Cutting

What’s with the random homo erotic aspect of cutting off balls? Where did those guys go? Did they die? The idea of cutting off a man’s balls as a form of debt payment is understandable- I wish I had $20,000 but to not do a follow-up is poor writing. So, anytime something like that is placed in a script like that, it is added for shock value and not really an effective method of punishment considering we never got to see what happen to those guys.

3.) Shit Walls

O.k. there Mr Lahey. Remember if you want to get your point across, shit on yourself and rub it on the wall to mean you are serious? I am sure keeping a pen within arms length was just less dramatic.

2.) Replay that again

How did the kids Dad that was helping Shelly make a bad situation worse? Well for starters, he pointed a gun at the wrong person and shot ‘Nana’ in the neck and than Shelly picks him up and throws him but the next scene, his head is pierced by a wooden beam. Not to mention the childs’ mother, I believe, was so random when she entered that scene. So, she randomly pulls out a full-on butcher knife and stabs Shelly- that is street. Where did that wooden beam come from? and are we just going to ignore the fact that Shelly is responsible for that kid being the next Batman? Additionally, the true lesson here was that people who intervene in beating will likely fall into a shit-storm.

1.) That ending sucked!

What the Hell was that thing at the end? No only was the CGI weird, how the Hell could Olivia see a crazy bird like creature from the ground? and why on Earth are more and more people, when fighting evil, not realize that the only effective way to kill a demon creature is to cut off its head. Not jam the head into medical supplies? To make matters worse, does no one carry a gun. Does everybody have to get cut up before managing to randomly win a fight that could have been solves rather quickly if someone brought a gun or at least a taser. Who fights with a freaking old ass axe? Shooting at the bird, may have wounded it enough to climb down from the balcony to save your demon baby.

Also, did they just breeze through the fact that Roman is a rapist that somehow rape and killed his sister-cousin Letha? Explain how he did that? when did he do that? How can he be in 2 places at once? maybe he needed to tap that special ability while watching his baby being whisked away.

I am sorry but this Season sucked! If it was not Peter whining about his mother- turning over bookshelves to show he is angry, looking like he consistently needed a hot shower and a comb- When did funky, dirt trash, become the new ‘hot’? Roman’s constant bitching about his mother just made me think of Francis from Malcolm in the Middle. They have this Oedipus-like relationship with their Mother. These young men claim to hate her but won’t stop talking about her. Or how about Roman being so hungry he wanted to suck the blood puss out of a vagrants cold sore– I am not making this up. Olivia, going from not the Olivia, we observed in Season 1- to Norman’s bitch-dog until she uses the line ‘all I wanted was your heart’ before she rips it out. Shelly pissing me off because she’s just so got-dang pitiful! We, know you’re weird Shelly– can we move on or at least refer the girl to a plastic surgeon.

I am throughly disappointed in Hemlock Grove this season. I understand they are branching into unchartered territory since the book kind of ended at Season 1 but this season looked weak, whiny and just overtly ‘True Bloody’. I am not likley to view a third season.
