The Institute - About an ARG that took place in mid-California, and the people involved.

This was amazing. I've been thinking of making a GBS post about it, actually. I was living in SF at the time and never heard about this. I am very sad about it.

I watched The Internet's Own Boy, tonight, the doc about Aaron Swartz. It was really inspirational and yet depressing. He was such a visionary, he actually wanted to do the cliched "make the world a better place," but it was reasonable, and achievable. loving depressing what the Federal Courts were trying to do. Anyway, it was good.

This sound interesting. Where can I watch it?

E: never mind, I found it:

I've been watching The Story of Film on Netflix. It's the most in depth, well researched, and well written movie history I've ever seen.

E: One thing that is really great about this is the shots that were done just for the documentary. Street shots. Shots of people. Just gorgeous.

I got used to his voice fairly quickly once I realized his accent wasn't typical English and he was doing his best to enunciate so that he would be understood. And complaining about the beautiful static shots during narration makes me think that you don't really enjoy cinematography and shouldn't be watching in the first place. Or you just decided you didn't like the film and went on a hate rampage.

The Imposter was great. If only for how completely hosed up it gets as it progresses. It's so whack I considered whether it was a work of fiction made to look like a documentary.

Jesus you guys weren't kidding. I usually don't like crime related docs, but I haven't had my mind blown like that in a long time. About an hour in is when poo poo really gets unbelievable. Fuuuuuck.

The way the guy turns into super-troll by the end was actually pretty funny.

I watched The Red Pill.

Wasn't what I expected at all. Didn't realize there was a schism between reddit red pill people and the ones who live in reality.

I'd recommend watching, especially if you are a feminist as the film is made by one.

I had never heard of it until just now and watched the trailer. Looks very interesting. Is it streaming anywhere?

I think it is on Netflix and Hulu.

I watched that flat earther doc. "Let's do an experiment to prove the earth is flat. Hmm, this experiment proves it is a globe. Better try something else. Hmm...this one also proves the earth is a globe. I think the problem is we aren't doing the right experiments."

Went to a screening last night of Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project at the Metrograph in NYC. In summary, a left-wing activist from Philadelphia recorded recorded 24/7 television, mostly news, from 1979 till her death in 2012. Her tapes ended up with the internet archived and are being uploaded and made both viewable and searchable.

Honestly, a fantastic documentary about our relationship with media and how news shapes public opinion. Lots of fascinating archival footage. Marion Stokes was way ahead of her time. Highly recommended if and when it's available VOD or on a streaming platform.


Trailer:

The Oklahoma city bombing and 9/11 would be interesting because of how the news agencies reported certain things initially and then stopped talking about them at all. There isn't a lot of footage of this stuff, though.

I watched "Dumb, the story of Big Brother Magazine."

It was excellent. I wish I had read it when it was new. I kept thinking that Hunter S. Thompson would have loved it. They never call it gonzo journalism, but that is basically what it was.

I also watched the doc about the drug scandals in Massachusetts. I forget the name. It was pretty good, too.

I just watched Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story and it was really good. It does go into the horrible things John K. has done and the documentary makers do confront him about it.

Where did you watch this? I don't see it on streaming anywhere. Maybe i'm just missing it or something?

Can someone recommend a documentary on christianity and the bible? I don't mean BS that actually believes all that poo poo. I mean something that deep dives into how the Romans compiled a ton of stories and myths and made the new testament and the actual truth of it's genesis (no pun intended) and all that. I remember something I saw about how the catholic church is just the continuation of the roman empire and I'm curious about how that goes.

This is the best out there:

https://www.pbs.org/video/jesus-christ-first-christians-part-one-uosmze/

It's over twenty years old by now, but it's still excellent. It basically explores the history of Christianity from a non-religious perspective, beginning with the movement Jesus started and covering up until the time when it became the official religion of the Roman empire. As an ancient historian, I can attest that it's very even-handed in its discussion of the evidence.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

One more episode to go on the Elisa Lam/Cecil Hotel documentary and it's dogshit. Nearly 4 hours for something that should have been an hour. They just spent 5 minutes talking about a death metal musician! loving embarrassing

We watched the first episode and never went back. So much filler. It looks like it could be interesting if it was edited better.

But all the Cecil stuff is completely unrelated to the case. Utterly unimportant.

Oh man it's the same director? What a shame, it's not even in the same league. I mean the English couple... what the gently caress. Wasting my drat time

Yeah. "we got there after everything happened and have nothing to do with anything." Uhhhhh.

Web sleuth.

Who the gently caress greenlighted this?
