24: Misbehavioral Economics: Choosing irrationality

Are people being reasonable when they act irrationally? Doesn’t rationality and reasonableness mean the same thing? Charles and Igor kick of the new decade by diving into a messy mix of behavioral economics, nudges, moral philosophy and legal studies, to examine what standards guide people’s decisions. Charles asks Igor about core standards that guide people when they try to make a good decision. Igor unpacks how the standard of a rational agent evolved in the 20th century and what implications it has had for modern economics and politics. Charles wonders if there are any reasonable people left on the Clapham omnibus in London. Igor discusses his new work assessing how most people define rationality and reasonableness, showing that irrational behavior may be a consequence of focusing on reasonableness instead. Welcome to Episode 24.

Opening Salvo...jus'som' random stuff

In a mood called: bloggyWritten from: Nova Hotel in Aurora, Yellowknife, NWTWhilst listening to: Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz - Crunk Juice (2004)

Welcome to, an actual blog. Just thoughts, feelings, updates, journaling, goofy stuff... and all from just an ordinary person. I'm not selling you anything, i'm not endorsing anything, In this blog, you can pretend that corporations and corporate synergy NEVER co-opted the net and ruined everything that was cool about it, and created the social landscape of the 2010s. You're all in that web of bullshit baby, don't deny it...

But here, an actual BLOG! DOUGLAS RUSHKOFF! TEAM HUMAN! ALL THE WAY. Also, I love blogs. Always have. I'm bringing them back. Even if only for myself. I'd like to petition that singer/songwriter Peach Guevera get a blog too... when she isn't taking over the world with her incredible music that is... That's it for now.

On this blog, I will be writing updates about my move to, and living in Nunavut, as well as musings and other goofy stuff. Oh yes, I'm 35 and I moved to Nunavut this week to live with my girlfriend who's teaching here.. more on that, later, maybe.

Todd Donald

So, on the one hand... and also catch-up!

In a mood called: desparateWritten from: Home! I guess... Gjoa Haven, NunavutWhilst listening to: Ten Minute Podcast - Episodes from 2012-2013

90s Tarentino; starting at the end...

I've spent the last 3-4 days sleeping, making coffee, pretty much nothing, chores, cooking, dishes, more nothing and all the while, not vaping, which is driving me fucking nuts.. as it well should, I really enjoyed that activity. I posted a picture of my last vape-inhale, just prior to disassembling the thing and throwing each piece in the trash-bin at the Yellowknife airport. I assure you and anyone else back home in the Waterloo Region of Ontario, that I'm nothing more or less than the same aging mess that I was before I left... only I'm bracing myself IN the shit, as opposed to bracing myself FOR the shit.
From the factory of porky isolation and freedom of death, to the land of peace, joy, freedom and opportunity, to finally,, the land of icy isolation and bleeechhh... this will lead us closer back to now!

For those of you just joining us... my partner Katie and I went back into school in September 2017 as mature students. Katie to Teacher's College at Laurier University, and I into Office Admin Executive at Conestoga College. Colleges went into heavy STRIKE mode that fall, for 6-7 weeks, completely fucking up the first semester of my program, which was coming gradually apart then, at the seams. I took the full refund and withdrew from it, so I could go back to work at the AWFUL but reliable Conestoga Meat (factory) job, and start re-paying my loan, etc.
Early 2018 lead me into another awful round of depression, much like I had from Autumn 2013 to Autumn 2017... that hopeless feeling of "this fucked-up workplace is all I have, and all I have to look forward to?" "what the FUCK, is the point of living?" and yet I had no choice, and my return would last at least until the end of July 2019... which also happened to be when Katie left teacher's college, and started her first f/t job, as a teacher in Gjoa Haven, Nunavut.
I went INSTANTLY from hating existence and feeling isolated, both socially and artistically from the community of Kitchener/Waterloo (and surrounding)... a community which is changing so much from outside forces, both American and Torontonian that I hardly recognize it or feel at home or welcome in it-but there's just enough goodness to hangout for and find a home in... Sorry,-I was over-exhausted, over-worked, felt crushed by an unforgiving workplace and schedule and bills-and just like that I was to move back in with my folks for a while, and work a job that I did NOT hate.
The 'Descendants Brewery' months... ah, those...

...I don't know if anyone at that place (that I wasn't already friends with) genuinely liked or enjoyed working with me, or was just kind enough to respond to the probably overwhelming amount of joy and privilege I expressed in knowing and working with them. To their credit though, i'm both inclined to have faith that they ARE fond of me, but just, additionally looking at myself and forehead-palming after every interaction.

Suffice to say (which isn't a term I verbally use, obviously), I REALLY fucking enjoyed working there. The coworkers, some who left, some who just joined up. I enjoyed the long not-so-busy shifts, the rushes, the busier times, the events, the food, and omg, the fucking FOOD!? They let me podcast there.. I got to open-and-close a smaller pub in New Hamburg..

I can't leave out the most important aspects of working at Descendants though... at this time in my life, I FINALLY (CeCe Peniston) returned to a state of grace, and peace, and I felt independant again, I found fucking identity, like holy shit, I fucking exist! I am a person! Not just the memory of a person that once was... occasionally visiting that big city and wanting to go home early depressed by the fact that it isn't where I live anymore (metaphor and now literally.), I ACTUALLY HAVE AUTONOMY... Socially interacting with strangers regularly, for money even. I could randomly decide I wanted to see some pub friends playing and fucking go. I got to see friends I haven't, in years, made new friends... was possibly on my way to having a social group even.

This is all hopelessly to add-on to, here in this blog, something I REALLY REALLY REALLY don't want to say.. but have to put down SOMEWHERE... While I believe wholeheartedly that working at the meat factory was entirely responsible for my exhaustion, and MOST of the rest of the depression... I really don't know, whether or not it was the only reason I felt isolated and non-existent (at least not in the way I wanted to exist)... yet, I honestly wouldn't if I could, cop to the idea that this person I love, who's given me more than everything and loves me in return, would possibly, in the form of our partnership, be withdrawing me from life as I want it to be, to be happy, to be fulfilled.

Sure the argument could be made, that I couldn't possibly just make a future out of hospitality.. but the fact is that it would have been a staaart... Yes, I've envisioned it, or fantasized. I would get healthy again, and figure out what I want to do in life, from a more creatively and socially fuelled existance. Everyone has these white, western hang-ups, about whether or not we're paired off and reproducing, not even a third of the way through our fucking lives, and I'm LONG, OVER, THAT.. no, I would've been happy as shit to restart from there...

But, alas (haha, I never say that word either), this was all going to be over because when the Christmas Holidays of 2019 came, the love of my life would come back home, and bring me back up to the tiny, arctic, top of the planet for at least 6 months... as per our agreement.

You couldn't meet anyone more loving or excited about me moving here with them... yes, when I say here, I mean here, in Gjoa Haven, Nunavut, in the arctic circle. I'll be happy to dispel any false notions you might have about it here. Anyway, with that energy coming at me, with all of the love I have for this person, how can I fight it? How can I imagine even remotely (funny alternate use of remote) hurting someone, or changing the dynamic of how we love each other; someone who's invested more than everything into me...

I'm so stunned, and dizzy and paused right now because I feel helpless, and scared, and I want nothing more than to just get to a place where something big, doesn't need to be done, or decided. I'm so fucking tired of this shit.. I haven't had real peace in the better part of a decade, and i'm fucking miserable, because my mind is at war... I can't process, either because my brain has already begun it's descent or decay, or because of the polar climate-elevation, something, or because of the rest of what this says on the blog...

The stuff at the top, again... ANNND- - -

So I return myself now, back to what seems like destiny, the all too popular program of isolation, and separation from identity, existence, autonomy or anything else worth being truly alive for. Everyone's had their stake in a reaction to finding out about the move.. for one, my loving and worry-some parents have been devastated by this change. Another reaction has been the aggressively nasty one, taking close-minded pot shots at the worst possible scenarios of: how much shit costs, food, how COLD it is, believe it or not, sunlight, and other things I know about. There's the humble reaction, that's un-knowing, but not wanting to make assumptions based on the same amount of information. Lastly there's been the ANNOYING. AS. FUCK. (yes, the WHOLE FUCKING WORDS) reaction that's excited! "Hey, 6 months, 2.5 years, nothing! just a drop in the bucket!", "That sounds like an adventure, I'm jealous!", "Maybe you'll like it, you never know"... wrong, wrong, and wrong... clearly none of you three are aware of the SHIT that I have elsewhere in this blog, and NONE OF YOU FUCKS are EVER in conversations with me where I could try and fail equally, at trying to explain that. Don't get excited for me, I'm not, I'm MISERABLE, stunned, deflated and overwhelmed, and there's nothing I can do about it.

I can't leave the house and go for a drive, I can't take a break to blow out something smokey, the altitude and artificial air is making me dizzy, everything that's happening, is happening way down there, half the world away... I don't know anyone here, there's no one who can teach me anything that I want to learn, or that I can look up to because I'm not relying on them or needing to trust them for any reason. I'm simply stuck. Frozen. Let it go...

Snide side aside: Homophobic cunts… will they never learn? and if they will, when?

Brought to you by the inbred people of lifesitenews.com (JUST heard of this website… take a look around!)This was actually written earlier… and NOT posted to facebook
Now i’m not sure where I land, and am not sure if I ever WILL land somewhere, on the topic of ‘people being offended’. There are SO many intricacies and idiosynchracies of humanity, let alone levels of intelligence, that for some reason, have an equal voice on the internet, and therefore, on the subject. One person’s sensetivity is not another’s. When it comes to oppressed peoples/identities though, I’d say give’m a break. I’d also say, making fun of people for their age, weight, class, clothes, behaviour etc, ESPECIALLY if it’s punching ‘up’, is alright by me. However, I am once again offended and embarassed by my own species with this…
“TELL DISNEY: Don’t make Elsa a lesbian in Frozen 2! Sign the petition here.”lifepetitions.com/petition/lesbian-elsa-frozen-2(PS: to this link... DON'T YOU FUCKING SIGN IT! also, the movie already came out! booya!)
So I'm writing my blog.. thinking of using an Elsa - "Let It Go" reference... Yeah, it's early in the blog, so I can get away from reaching for the obvious,, re: isolation, polar climate, frozen essentially.. if there's one saving grace about the absurdity of my new location, it's the TWO movie references I can make that come to mind, and the other one already graces my profile photo, so... none of this is the point, next paragraph...


Here's the image I was going to use under the words "the cold DOES bother me anyway, but otherwise... this song...", and then I read the headline it was linked to. Now, my first reaction was... well, fucking, good! No!? For one, IF SO, does that need to be written about, as ANYTHING other than a cultural blessing? And IF SO, in an ideal world, does it need to be pointed out, or does it need to be as regular and ingratiated as the enormous library and compendium of straight shit? Do we NOT have enough de-humanizing-ly straight only shit, throughout the history of film/television.

Low and behold, with a PETITION attached, the cousin-fucking small town, god-fearing antics of a bunch of homophobic, lazy, drunk, detached from society, small-minded pieces of shit, are at it again... I'm sorry, I may rant about the deteriorating quality of music and the way people interact, but I rest on "whatever" I can live with that shit, and I usually regret my rants, immediately after making my point, because what my friends NEVER seem to realize that it's FOR me, and not them, I just wanted their ears for a second, jesus... HOWEVER, I will not take, THIS, back; if you have a problem with the sexual orientation of a Disney character, or any character, or any fucking person, I will NOT forgive you, for taking into the 2020s, THAT LEVEL, OF STUPID, IGNORANT, DUMB, PIECE OF SHIT, SHIT. SHUT THE FUCK UP homophobic websites. GO EXTINCT. Jesus, and all of his disciples were PROBABLY gay too. Suck it.

So, on the other hand...

In a mood called: objective... it's a mood!Written from: the house building, Gjoa Haven, NunavutWhilst listening to: The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)

Opening statements… post coffee shit, pre-walk…
I wouldn’t credit any of the peace i’ve found to being here persay, other than the idea that I’m here with nothing but free time for all 6 of the months, and not 3-4 days of harsh adjustment. No, I’ll be getting a job soon, but if it’s not a job I hate with a passion, that doesn’t hate me, then that’ll be good. Making money is good, making money and wanting to live, well that’s just priceless. I’m actually about to leave the house for the 2nd time since i’ve been here… WOW.
PS: I may have been intense in the previous entry, and it WAS real, and not-exageratted, but it’s only part of the story. It’s my right to express that part, un-adulterated by the inclusion of contrary feelings (that said, not enough to change how I feel about being here) that can, here in THIS post/entry, illuminate that i’m not complete without positive thoughts and optimistic appraisals, also.
Continuing statements… post walk…
On Sunday, January 5th, after two nights in the beautiful Yellowknife… well let’s go through that, shall we, strangers? On the 3rd, we flew into Yellowknife NWT, my girlfriend and I. This is Katie’s third time in town. They had a brewery with a DELICIOUS food-making restaurant, and I got the fish burger. We shopped around and relaxed at the hotel. Then we met up with some of her teacher friends for dinner at a pub the second night, they lovely people.. having walked around and shopped a bit more, and spent some time at a wonderful café called JavaRoma (coffee there, not so much). On the 5th, most of those teacher friends and a few more loaded into a 20-seat propeller plane at YK airport and we said goodbye to that small town, with a winter somewhere between that in Ontario, and the Arctic, both literally and figuratively… and goodbye to civilization.
On the plane, we were to have landed briefly in other parts of Nunavut and finally in Gjoa Haven on King Edward Island.. but the weather was so bad, the one plane going to Nunavut that day wasn’t going to be able to land. So, those other passengers went home, and only those of us going to Gjoa Haven were on the plane,, extra seats, meant more comfort and a smoother travel day. With the plane rides from Toronto to Calgary and Calgary to Yellowknife being overloaded, cramped, and painful, this was KIND OF a big deal! Last plane, here we go, landing was rough and shakey but we did it! Touch-down!
On our first night in the house (that Katie’s already been living in from August-December 2019), some friends came over with a dinner made by another teacher friend who’d been in Gjoa Haven a day earlier, and I took some time un-packing and putting most of my shit in the spare bedroom, to have, like an office/podcast editing studio.
On the second day (the 6th), I spent ample time in the morning cleaning, tidying and re-arranging the larger living room area.. then relaxed for a while, ultimately made a nice dinner and went to bed when Katie needed to go to bed. On the third day (the 7th), I spent the day relatively the same way, but I, wait, can’t remember if I left or not, I think I made coffee and marathon’d the Star Wars Trilogy. On the fourth day (yesterday) I started blogging again, HIGHLIGHT: LEAVING THE HOUSE! I walked all the way to an exotic shop called Quick Stop, which literally is the same chain, albeit different here, as the one in Kitchener. Today I’m doing some chores… all of which is to say, I’ve been doing allot of chilling, and nothing this last few days… it’s actually, surprisingly nice.
The silence and physical distance, has allowed me distance from the toxicity of the phony balogny influencers, brands, robots and entrepreneurs, douchebags, toxic macho male bullshit that i’ve been sickened by so much back home..
At the moment at least, I don’t have to go to work..
I’m making coffee (good roastery shit too, like detour, settlement and more) and all with the same coffee maker (that works!) (Katie’s) that’s the reason I fell in love with dark roasts and brewing at home!
Cat cuddles with Luda, of course…
The space, has almost set a reset button, I mean, not to de-evolve or dissintegrate.. not becoming a different person, or forgetting all that i’ve been, up to this point. It’s a new decade, a new year, a new place, and allot of silence… it’s affecting, how could it NOT be!?; but, a reset button on my nervous system. I don’t have anything to prove, and no one to prove it to. All of my friends, like, my truest friends or friends in training, are all but an electronic communication away.. so as much as i’d RATHER be in person with them.. at least this way i’m allowing myself to calm down a bit internally. I went from work forcing me away from people, to 5 months of barrelling towards people, to now, being distant again, but at least peacefully.
I’m actually releived that i’m done with the podcast, at least the one that I was making… near the end, and at various points all the way through, allot of what I did was in vain, as much as I tried to rationalize certain things while in the moment.. also, it wasn’t bringing out the best in me. I’ve been thrust into a position of simply not being able to do it.. and suddenly, nervous system reset, and I no longer care whether or not people see me trying to get their attention, or prove anything. That weight is gone!
I’m eating/drinking better… it’s been a week with little to no pop, the last few, with no pop… No chips, no fried foods, no fast foods, no junk, no fat, just cooking and eating healthy shit. Water and coffee.. the prices are much here, but you can get what the body needs and not go broke if you’re working. It’s how whitey does it up here I guess?
Please forgive me if I end up quitting this blog thing again.. i’m not as carefree as when I first started (18 y/o as opposed to 36), nor is the internet and those who’ve hijacked the place that the internet is.. plus, at this point in my life, I have too much to say,, there’s more self-assurance, but less clarity the more you learn.

You have ONE JOB, kid… ONE JOB!!!

And you SHOULDN’T HAVE THAT JOB, because you’re a piece of fucking shit!
I remember falling in love with the 1980 movie The Shining, when I caught it on television in 1999, at the age of 14. Mind you, CQI films like The Matrix and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace were in the mix of what I was seeing.. even then as ridiculous as the special effects look now, they were miles above in visual story-telling (technologically) than their older counterparts. Also keep in mind, that during this time (I’m of course about 14 y/o), I only knew the movies I’d seen in the theatre, that my parents rented from Blockbuster or Jumbo video, etc., or airing on television; usually the best ones, that weren’t in a movie stream on Canada’s TMN, were aired on basic cable, laden with commercial advetisements. Just think, in 5 years I’d be buying booze and cheap used DVDs of anything I saw with dividends of part-time labour… and in 10 years I’d be downloading a free digital DVD rip in minutes of all the movies I wanted a copy of 10 or more years ago.
I feel like there’s truth to the addage; there’s a cerebral connection we make to the things we’re exposed to (music, film, experiences, tastebuds) during a time in our lives, usually around 14/15 and 24/25.. hormonally, and centered around the simplicity of our lives, and escapism vs. uncertainty.. it makes the way things are feel like the way things should always be… what’s ironic about that is that late 20th century shit, the introduction of web blogging, myspace.. and then all that shit we have today is all a part of my adolescance, I got a mix of all the late gen-x and elder millenial shit.
Any movie I would consider TRULY good, for what it does for me either in content or craft, I won’t dispose of easily.. I’ve gotten to know my favourite films over several years which have turned into decades, and repeated viewings at least annually if possible, and the further back in time you go, you’ll have caught me watching The Shining more than twice a week.. now that’s heavy. Perhaps after so many viewings, you can go a few times listening instead to the commentary track, perhaps you only have time for documentaries and making-of or other added contents that enhance your connection to the movie! Perhaps I’ve watched all of the legitimate making-ofs and documentaries on The Shining? Fair?

Okay, so… With an adept ability to function in the world, despite having almost romantic connections to masterful pop-culture offerings from brilliant people… Even though I stand on the left and don’t agree with how Stanley antagonized Shelley-even though the end-result was amazing-it’s not okay… All that I EVER ASK, of someone who has the GALL to call critiquing films a fucking JOB, get paid for it, get patted on the fucking BACK for it… is to be a glib as they need to be, not TOO FUCKING GLIB, as long as they offer something original, intelligent and thoughtful… at least with that, they’d have my respect! Fair? How is that not fucking fair? Supposedly these little pukes go to school for journalism or creative writing and have some kind of future that’s bigger than slapping a glib quote on rotten tomatos and calling that a resumé?
It’s not like The Shining, released in 19-fucking-80… NEEDS a new word on the matter of it’s existence, certainly not from some fuck who like me, didn’t even exist when it was released, to the reviews of those who took pride in thoughtful critisisms (including both negative and positive reviews and audience response as all Kubrick films did). All of us Kubrick lovers know that Stephen King (who in my opinion, injected his books with dishonest amounts of sentiment) hates the cold touch on his story, in Stanly Kubrick’s masterpiece. That’s fine, he wrote a beautiful and amazing story.. in my opinion Stanley Kubrick’s version, was allot more visceral, it wasn’t meant to be a blockbuster and hand itself to the watcher on a silver platter wrapped in a bows and answers and loose ends tied up, and no conversation to have afterward or multiple interpretations; something we all applaud The OA for-rightfully so Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, some of us are in it to be deeply engaged, and moved, even un-nerved.
Here’s an example of Stephen King and Jack Nicholson (Jack Torrance), talking about Stanley, Stanley’s film and input… I’ve listened to this shit over a dozen times in the featurettes, and it’s AVAILABLE ON WIKE-FUCKING PEDIA…
In Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures, Jack Nicholson recalls that Kubrick said The Shining is an overall optimistic story because "anything that says there's anything after death is ultimately an optimistic story." Stephen King recounts hearing the same thing from Kubrick in conversation with him, and replied, "What about hell?". King says there was a pause and Kubrick answered, "I do not believe in hell."
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_and_religious_beliefs_of_Stanley_KubrickArticle “Political and religious beliefs of Stanley Kubrick…found when I was searching the quote that I know was ripped-off
Now at this point in my writing excercise… I’m invested in finishing this post, but my aggressive-feeling moment is over… I really have no control of this situation in pop-culture, and I really don’t care what people born after me get, out of their movie experience… some will evolve past me-now in intelligence when they’re 5-10 years younger, I can find them and look up to them and seek their approval; the statistical MASSES of the rest can all go their way too, I can’t headache and worry about it.. it’s fine. Enjoy your auto-tuned, un-original music and your sugar-smacked cereals, I’ll walk in the direction of my tomb, it’s fine, it’s fine!
If I AM finishing this post though, I must introduce you to professional movie critic and pundit: Matthew Rozsa… Who on HIS website MatthewRozsa.com… has this text, written about his qualifications…
Matthew Rozsa is a political blogger whose work appears in Salon, The Daily Dot, The Good Men Project, and numerous other publications. As a doctoral candidate studying history at Lehigh University, Rozsa applies the knowledge base and research skills acquired through his graduate work to the numerous issues discussed in his articles, which have appeared in national media outlets since 2012. In addition to covering politics, Rozsa also writes about American history, social justice causes, popular culture, and the concerns of the high-functioning autistic community.
Rozsa earned his BA at Bard College in 2006 and his MA at Rutgers University (Newark) in 2012. He has worked on several Democratic political campaigns and a former Democratic committee member in Northampton County, PA.
I must apologize by the way, pause… the ONLY reason I got myself all riled up in the first place, was because after owning a VHS, DVD, still hoping to find a worthwhile Bluray one day, and looking up an iTunes copy to buy and download… I decided (AGAINST MY BETTER JUDGEMENT), to just, take, a little gander, over at the ratings and reviews tab… not like there was going to be ANYTHING worthwhile, at least nothing written by today’s hyperbolistic and pimply moron crowd.. I expected the pro reviews though, at the top, would be from 1980!? Why wouldn’t I? Isn’t THAT when the film came out, WHO THE FUCK TODAY, would have ANYTHING of legitimacy, to say about a film that came out 30-40 years ago!!?? Well the truth of the answer here… is fucking, no one.
Here’s Matthew Rozsa’s insightful punditry at work in his review on Salon.com/Rotten Tomatoes…
“The classic Stanley Kubrick film isn’t just scary…” bold statement… “- it is also, in it’s own odd way, “ okay, glib, but it informs the young reader that Kubrick films aren’t boring everyday pieces of shit, they’re wierd-if you’re game for wierd (wierd by definition is nothing more than out of the ordinary; kids are the ones who made the term “wierd” mean out of the ordinary + negative).. and finishes with “…in it’s own odd way, defined by a hopeful perspective on life and death.”.. so by ‘hopeful perspective’ is that your less interesting way of saying something DIRECT? ‘defined by’? that’s REACHING…
Here’s the review on it’s own…
Fresh: The classic Stanley Kubrick film isn’t just scary - it is also, in it’s own odd way, defined by a hopeful perspective on life and death. - Matthew Rozsa, Salon.com, Nov. 6, 2019
Okay, so, GREAT, the AMAZING consciousness of the incredible Matthew Rozsa has put his shine on The Shining, the FUCKING GAUNTLET, has been thrown… so.. hey wait… Wait a minute… Hold on…
No, it’s coming to me… I’ve heard this thought before… it’s been perhaps.. Wait… Re-worded by someone who… get’s PAID to be a twit-twat-tweet.. bite-sized glib piece of shit professional pundit.. this couldn’t be!??
Shall I re-copy and paste his review NEXT to a re-copy/paste of the original THOUGHTS by Jack Nicholson, available in The Shining documentaries AND on wikepedia after an EASY one search!? Okay, I will!!!
In Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures, Jack Nicholson recalls that Kubrick said The Shining is an overall optimistic story because "anything that says there's anything after death is ultimately an optimistic story." Stephen King recounts hearing the same thing from Kubrick in conversation with him, and replied, "What about hell?". King says there was a pause and Kubrick answered, "I do not believe in hell."
The classic Stanley Kubrick film isn’t just scary - it is also, in it’s own odd way, defined by a hopeful perspective on life and death. - Matthew Rozsa, Salon.com, Nov. 6, 2019
What bothers me at the core, during the minutes that it bothers me, is THIS SHIT… PEOPLE ARE GETTING AWAY WITH THE FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW WHAT I KNOW ABOUT THE SHINING… AND MORE ARE GETTING AWAY WITH WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE, and calling THAT SHIT THEIR OWN THOUGHTS.
OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. If you don’t read about eastern philosophies, then you don’t realize you’re getting taken for a ride by capitalist spirit guides, influencers or life-coaches with their fucked up vision bored shit. EVERYTHING THEY SAY is re-worded PURE philosophies on selflessness and happiness, warped into profiteering.
OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN… Music, Sports, Politics… Not allot of people know what’s already been said and don’t know what’s being ripped off… funnily enough in a day and age where MOST of the proof of their dishonesty can be found, by ANYONE. It’s not okay in schools to be un-original, how can people build fucking CAREERS out of it!??
Question things, please… Trust things, but fucking QUESTION things. Please
