Until the end of the world - the full movie finally.

#UntilTheEndOfTheWorld let's do this :) :) :)

See you all in 4.5 hours :)

BTW First time I think I've ever let a bluray cycle the entire opening montage..... thanks Nick Cave you are awesome.

Thoughts from halfway through......wow cant believe how much extra footage is here and its equally awesome. This is NOT "off-cuts" that were discarded on the editing suite floor.

This said....might be im at a different stage of my life....but Claire is a real bitch.....and Sam Neill should have cut bait and run a long time ago.

If you are even half a fan.....i recommend getting a copy and doing the hard slog through the entire movie, its worth it.

BTW heads up.....i had a problem with the 2nd disc with some corruption about 45 mins in :( I've reached out to Criterion for a replacement and hope they will make it good.

Blowback

It seems like "blowback" is the word i seem to be reaching for more and more these days.

Its kind of ironic that democrats here in the USA are blaming Trump for killing Soleimani......instead i blame Obama.

 Before you click away and change the channel......stick with me here.

 Ok so
1/ Trump kills Solemani in a "rod of god" assassination - why......because he didnt want a Benghazi type situation "on his watch".

 2/ Why did Benghazi happen.......cause Hillary was fucking around in Libya which we should never have been doing in the first place.

 3/ Why was Hillary funding various factions in Libya......because they wanted the weapons out of Libya and sent (via Turkey) to Syria to Al Nusra (operation Sycamore) to overthrow Assad.

 4/ Why is Christopher Hitchens dead?
 Cause Obama wanted to get rid of Assad.

 Ergo.....its unforeseen blowback.....Obama wanted Assad dead....Trump goes to war with Iran

And to be honest its kind of sad that Americans think a russian chef buying facebook ads is the height of political influence......

The next billion netziens

Really interesting article about the law of large and growing numbers of netziens in India.

Wonder if this will change the internet in a similar way to how Chinese theater ticket sales have changed Hollywood movie stories

Also adds an additional data point to Jack Dorsey's decision to move to Africa for 6 months of the year.

Bawling over here this morning having found this in an email.

Re-Usable rockets wins the day?

A win for re-usable rocket designs? 

eg if this wasnt re-usable you would have to imagine the cost of this failure would have been much higher?

*Of course actually getting it into space and docking properly in the first place would have been "optimal"  :)
