The Internet was created by hippies and the CIA on acid. Ted Kaczynski was friends with these guys cuz they were all in super-smart club together (Harvard). But they screwed him over by giving him bad acid & totally messing with his head, so he was like �fuck your math, I�m gonna live in a shack!� And when they least suspected it�BLAM! He got revenge, but nobody knew from who. If you don�t believe, me just ask him. He hates phones so don�t call him. He really hates the Internet so by all means DO NOT EMAIL him! He likes to correspond by mail though so you can write to him at:
Theodore John Kaczynski
U.S. Penitentiary Max
P.O. Box 8500
Florence, CO 81226-8500
I watched this movie twice so far & I�m still trying to wrap my head around it. For one thing, it�s in German so the narrative involves a lot of reading. The are interviews in English but they are all with super geniuses & people who specialize in mind control so I�m never sure what to believe. Is a New World Order that�s uses technology to condition people�s minds to form a global utopian society a good thing? Utopia is sounds great, but mind control sounds scary. Do we create technology or does technology create us? Have I fully embraced cybernetics without even knowing it? Should I smash my computer with a tree stump or should I shoot the tree with my computer guided laser beam? Both of these options sound like a lot of fun.
Do machines control us? Lately, I�ve been spending more time with the Internet than I spend with actual people and when I spend time with people the Internet is always there in spirit. Whenever I ask my buddy Rob a question he replies: �I don�t know, I�m not the Internet�. The Internet provides answers to all life�s questions. But the speed at which the questions are answers is a bit unnatural, which raises more questions. Questions… that make me think faster. When computer run too fast they crash. Is technology our impending doom as the Unabomber suggests? Is doomsday, November 13, 2026, as mathematically theory suggests?
One guy in this film is really cool dude. He’s really old & he rocks a wheelchair, but he’s as sharp as a tack. He goes by the name of Heinz von Foerster. He is one of the architects of cybernetics & radical constructivism theory. When Lutz Dammbeck asks him about the consequences of creating a utopian reality based on a system that is ultimately flawed. He replies, �What is reality? Can you show it to me?� He�s the granddaddy of the Internet but he�s never owned a computer.
Lutz Dammbeck’s documentary explores some really amazing history, explains complex ideas and ties it all together with one of the 20th centuries greatest super villains! Two thumbs up for the NET: The Unabomber, LSD and the Internet!

This compilation is a great introduction to the Boot Camp Clik for the unfamilar and a treasure for the true souljahs who have been down from day one. The B.C.C. are like a lesser known Wu-Tang Clan, a super group spawned from the early 90’s underground hip hop scene. From grimy streets of Brooknam, they rep the real raw shit. No frills, two turntables and mic hip hop. Peep over 32 videos including classics like: Black Moon’s “Who Got the Props”, “How Many Mc’s”, “I got U Opin”, “Buck ‘em Down”, Smif-N-Wessun’s “Bucktown”, “Let’s Get it On”, “Sound Bwoy Burial”, Fab 5’s “Leflah”, Heltah Skeltah’s “Operation Lockdown”, O.G.C.’s “No Fear”, and more. These aren’t your typical rap video’s either. You’ll find no groupies pourin’ Dom P by the pool, no fake dancers and no bling bling. They’re low budget, creative and mad real. They’re shot in project hallways and parks after dark, the places where hip hop was born.
This DVD is the complete music video catalog of the B.C.C.
Over 2 hours! available from www.duckdown.com
Have you ever heard trash talk? I mean�have you ever really listened to your garbage? Look at all your stuff. Trash. Why do we have it and why is it here? The answer may be found in your U2 iPod, in the Russian Nintendo video bootleg file. Sorry, let me start again. Do you want a snack…some chips? Some wedges? We have along way to go in this review…DVDly speaking. Sorry, we’re out of sauce enablers. Anyways, where was I? Oh yes…trash talking. Trash poses the question:
“What is the new shape in entertainment? What is the new entertainment shape?” Hmmm… Where’s Tux Dog? He’s a detective, I’m sure he could find the answer. I can’t find him anywhere. Hello? What?? Google’s been hacked?!?…Better ask Jeeves. Hmmmmm, let’s see…click…click…click. Hey Raphe! Have you been using your 2megabit magic memory stick in my USB port? Something’s wrong here. Nuclear winter wrong… What? You think it’s broke? You think the internets broke? No, you don’t have to hit save when you’re done using the internet. Just close your eyes and make believe… and you can be at Fort Thunder! Paper Rad hasn’t turned on anything that wasn’t already off.
I’ve watched this DVD about 40 times. I show it to everyone I know. I bought a copy of it for my two-year-old niece. I encourage you to do the same. And please…don’t just listen to your trash… hear what it is saying. Some galleries don’t even have walls!!!

For fans of true hip hop “Sunglasses Is a Must” IS a must! If you no nothing about hip hop you should especially see this biopic. Hip-hop consists of 4 basic elements. This takes a look at the second element, the DJ. Through the eyes of a young master you enter the world of turntablism. With money he received from his bar mitzvah, A-trak bought his first turntables at the age of 13. By the age of 15 he’d won three international DJ championships. The movie takes you on a journey from his humble beginnings in Canada through the fascinating battle era of the 90’s, to his current global journeys with rap superstar Kanye West. This documentary shows hip-hop at it’s finest: skillful, competitive and fun. A-trak’s scratching, beat-juggling, and composing on the wheels of steel is an amazing sight (and sound!) His “masterpiece theater style” narration is hilarious. I enjoying this so much I watched twice in a row, no kidding. Frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreessshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
Starring A-trak. Featuring Q-Bert, Kanye West, Peanut Butter Wolf, Keyboard Money Mark, Dj Craze, Roc Raida, Mixmaster Mike and many more!
