There was a documentary about skunkworks, where they explain the history of the name and the program inside Lockheed, but I can't remember the name. Does anyone know good skunkworks docus?

I'm already late to the bitter lake proselytization, but it was good. I caught wind of it during Charlier Brookers Year Wipe 2014 and set it on my caledar to make sure I found it the day it came out.

There was a great documentary that I watched that told the history of ICBMs and space rockets. I cant find it anymore, and there are a ton of documentaries getting in the way of my search.

What I remember is that it didn't have any lame re-enactments, it was all facts and history and science. It moved rather quickly. And didn't have a lame narrator.

The most important thing I remember from it was that it went from ballistics for early guns (muskets and earlier) and then to rockets. It talked about rifling in weapons and stuff. IT was the first time I understood what ballistics meant because of this way that it conveyed the information. Misses and bullets are just riding in front of an explosion.

If any of you could help me find the docu it'd be greatly appreciated.

Was it a recent doc or an older one? Any idea roughly how long it was? I ask because I did a quick search and found something similar to your description:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u157zSQTbg

Not sure it counts as "documentary" being just under 30 minutes but it was pretty informative
I kept running into these too, with "1959" or "1960" or something from that era, and it's not them. It's more modern. It's none from the ATT vault either.


Maybe I should just load up a 16 hr playlist of ICBM videos and go through them until I find it.


Thanks for helping though!

I was a bit surprised that this movie was already available to watch. When you said "tangent", I figured you just meant that Herzog started talking about North Korea for a little while, similar to how he started going on about black magic or whatever in Encounters at the End of the World.

No no, it turns out Herzog straight up went to North Korea and filmed there.

There's got to be a lot of information left out of Tickled because the speed and way that it escalates seems really strange. At no point does the reporter ever ask anyone "Are you really trying to destroy my life because of tickling videos?"

So it's not surprising there's a ton of stuff they couldn't use.
Yea probably, because as the movie shows, he never gets enough time to

Vietnam PBS docu is this for 18 hours

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OySmfR74RUU

Whcih, i feel conflicted about when the narration picks up about an ambush, and the soundtrack kicks in and all of a sudden I'm excited. im exctied in that way I get when I consume good media, disconnected from the consequences


But i guess thats how its always been. That nin video had all the same components, just that i spent less time in it and had a little bit more abstraction from the stories. Life, procreation, survival, war, the MIC, boner pills, Oil, consumption, proliferation - a quick reflection of our society set to a gripping and reflective soundtrack

Wait, is this actually an original score? I thought it was just Ghosts I-IV added to video.

Not that this is strictly a bad thing: Ghosts I-IV is an album that doesn't really stand on its own despite having a lot of tracks that work very well as background/mood music, but I didn't notice much that was new material.

There's a certain nin guitar phrase, in a eukelele, that I swear I heard on one of the halo remixes between downward spiral and the fragile, but I can't find it and I've taken to relistening to the whole catalog including ghosts

Ghosts was basically made for pbs/free use/mit open source license. Listen to it and you realize it's an open source project

It seems like some of it is original (the more ambient stuff) but most of it is rehashed NIN material. On one end it feels weird recognizing the music, but on the other end: It fits.

It's like the culmination of what nin was doing. Political, viseral, unturning, audio and visual.

It's kind of nice to see the realization of a career like this. Same with the nin Adam Curtis crossover

It's on Youtube, the gist of it is that the wounds on her scalp look EXACTLY like owl raptor talons, they live in a place where Bard Owls attack humans without provocation, she had microfeathers and twigs in the hair she pulled out of her scalp, and Bard Owls are the only owls that even have microfeathers that go down to their talons. The wounds, extreme amount of blood, and so forth are consistent with someone attacked by an owl that got tangled in her hair and, because she was drunk and on Valium, it was made worse by her falling and hitting her body all over the steps.
Omg lol why did they take that out of the Netflix upload? Did it ever run at trial?


They strike me as the kind of people that would leave their back door open, for the dogs mostly and because who cares no one is going to walk in through the backyard.

Just want to say that the Apollo 11 documentary is extremely good. I watched the IMAX version and it really drove home how huge everything was.

I watched it on this huge dome screen in a planetarium where the seating is very steep, so an early shot panning down the rocket made it feel like I was going to tip out of chair.

i did the same, its the "first steps" version

Definitely watch it at home. I watched it before I went to the ominmax/dome at the science center. One thing that kinda threw me off for a minute though is that it was somewhat blurry, like it wasn't well suited for the medium compared to my home TV. But that was minor compared to the ability to watch the science thing at the science center, in a theater with other people!
