Getty oil fortune heiress helped fund climate activists who have targeted artworks and museums

If a company were getting subsidies and using donations to a museum purely to get tax write-offs, maybe I could understand from that perspectives that a museum could be targeted for the purpose of justifying rationale, but instead, it becomes increasingly alienated from the perspective of what is considered necessary commodities, which affect all people’s dependency on cost subsistence.

If people are being funded to stage a show which panders to narcissistic entitlement (such as virtue signaling) then it only perpetuates the unequal and devoid understanding of the increased marginalization of society (such as using alternatives like electric cars which have a horrendous landfill footprint of toxic metals which are still not recyclable and pose much bigger issues such as the potential for fires when exposed to air moisture or are unsustainable for a person who probably lives in the middle of the country and still needs fuel to operate their tractors, or doesn’t use their car for more than one time out of a month to get food supply. The cost alone for replacement batteries is significantly more than having a vehicle accessible that can be started a year after being left in storage.

If an oil company was donating to a homeless shelter or a food pantry, would people be so keen to justify setting fire to the shelter, or causing irreversible damage, and does it justify the illusion that people are doing a service to society instead of drawing attention to the key issues (and surely those people that threw soup on a Van Gogh art only reflected on how the poorest and most marginalized “starving artist” was increasingly shit on even after death.)

If anything the kinds of acts by people like that (such as targeting the ‘Mona Lisa,’ ‘The Girl with the Pearl Earrings, et al.) are more suited for Planned Parenthood or using contraceptives, if they really want to talk about the environment.

About 19 minutes in (Pheonix lights)


The sightings that can't be explained are ones where no airplane hanger on earth is capable of being concealed, and anything even close (or basically, the largest known aircraft) cannot hover slowly without making a sound.


I was just reminded of this film. . .


'






An example of how cutting hard stone during ancient Egypt times worked





The saw marks on stone around the pyramid was from 20th century projects involving restoring monuments, which people interpreted as ancient (though it doesn't exlain the challenge of cutting into granite that was known to be stored inside ancient monuments from those times, nor identical drill holes or saw marks found in other isolated areas from antiquity (which may well have deviced a drill method, but also, people in ancient times had a lot more time on their hands, and people rarely had better things to do than do mindless drudgery.)



Discusses the Piri Reis map which had early support as representing Antarctica.




Aside from the Popol Vuh having strange similarities to the story of Noah, the Mayan apparently did make contact with bearded people from ships, though it doesn't seem (hypothetically) as if the Vikings would have made it to the Yucatan, if somehow the idea of Genesis was introduced? The Viking Rollo (who died in 935 AD) did acquire Normandy under the agreement that he would convert to Christianity, and Ari Marson's voyage would have been 30 years later; so perhaps it's possible?

'They Will Torture Me to Death': Crypto Pioneer 'Drowns' Hours After Tweet on Discovering CIA Pedo Ring

No Evidence of Foul Play in Death of MakerDAO Co-Founder Nikolai Mushegian, Police Say
https://decrypt.co/113602/makerdao-co-f ... -mushegian

Did he happen upon some acid by chance?

Mathew Mellon was a junkie that destroyed his heart with opioids, and his crypto (XRP which he cashed out from some of it) legitimately was lost (he was so paranoid about being hacked that he put the crypto under false names using cold storage in various vaults, which might not have easily accessed details where anyone could find it.) He still had a large amount of it and may have only reserved a small(er) amount which he cashed out, though the confusion in the news reports seems to suggest the outcome was different than it actually was since he died prior to treatment and was taking ayahuasca (so perhaps foul play could have been involved, but since he was seeking ibogaine treatment to stave himself off oxycodone which he was spending $100,000 a month it might be key to understanding his heart issues. . .)

The claim he was sober could be him hiding a secret drug habit he still clung to, as many people with addictions can also become paranoid and keeping a private life.

There are a lot of strange connections to crypto and unusual circumstances, such as Autumn Radtke (CEO of American Bitcoin exchange who fell to her death in an apparent suicide, which was connected to other issues with possible hacking activity,) and perhaps Gerry Cotten of Quadriga Fintech Solutions also died in 2018, leaving no access to the crypto he was in charge of.

It reminds me of the Zappos founder. . . Seems the full story was finally revealed.

Hsieh, despite the presence of smoke, closed the door. Investigators said they could hear in the surveillance footage the sound of a dead bolt latching from within the shed.

At 3:20 a.m., Hsieh’s brother Andrew knocked on the door and told him it was time to go. From inside the shed, Hsieh could be heard in the video footage telling his brother to come back in five minutes, the report says.

Smoke filled the view of the camera one minute later followed by the sound of a carbon monoxide alarm in the shed. A minute later, a sound is heard indicating that the relief valve on the propane tank was “actuated to relieve pressure from within the tank,” according to the report.

The video shows a dramatic escalation in the smoke emanating from the shed and at 3:24 a.m., the feed went dead, the report says.

One of the friends told investigators that he and Andrew returned to the shed around that same time and tried to break down the door.

Firefighters arrived within minutes and forced open the door. Hsieh was found lying face up on a blanket. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and then airlifted to the Connecticut Burn Center, where he died on Nov. 27.
The propane tank was a space heater?

So even though he sold Zappos a decade prior, in 2020 he had left the CEO position and the argument about keeping the inside of the house clean (which would have been a recent purchase months prior) seems to have led to him getting intoxicated and perhaps even suicidal (or feeling indifferent.) Judging by how his "friends" came out of the woodwork for compensation with deals that never fully utilized following his death, it seems he was "alone."

I suspect he really was just cold even though he (should have?) knew the inhalation and additional heat from a propane heater, would have been deadly. He was incompetent around fires and it was just prior that firemen were called out on numerous occasions. . . It makes little sense and he was either incredibly incompetent or was deliberately testing his willpower to go through with burning himself to death after passing out.


He had a similar paranoia to Mellon.

Gold and silver (etc.) is often marked up significantly higher (at least 1/3rd) of the actual value of the metal, which might explain why a young CEO is worth 15-20 million, in addition to the idiots that likely are listening to pro-Trump scam radio are likely to trust, the same as many scammers often "pull the wool over their eyes."

A ton of movies:

Watching the movie Shane from 1953 (starring Jack Palance who I just now realized was born to Ukrainian/U.S.S.R. parents and had a different name)




(1966) The Professionals


That one is considered a classic.


A huge list of films

They have individual interviews in the comments link







(these have the full documentaries)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prelude_to_War
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Battle_of_Russia






I just realized there was a movie called 'Doctor Sleep,' which was inspired from Stanley Kubrick's, 'The Shining.' (Look for DS2019)



https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/doctor_sleep

I now realize (and must have forgotten for some reason) that Stephen King had a sequel to The Shining, and for some reason I assumed the movie was slightly "indie," (such as fanfiction inspired) as if the movie was derivative of 1980s Amblin films, the same as Stranger Things. The further the movie progressed I noticed it had certain aspects of Stephen King's style (and he never seems to have an aim or purpose, though it seemed too nuanced to recognize the symbolism of the The Shining (mostly that Danny's character was akin to trauma-based response, and perhaps a euphemism of a carrot indicating that.) The story is ultimately aimless but I planned to read up on it more as I watch.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Sleep_(novel)

The Director was also the screenwriter, and seems to have a love affair with Stephen King material. Strangely he seems to be involved with a ton of movie projects simultaneously and functioned on multiple levels with 3 films in one year. . . Really odd.

I just realized that Stephen King bought a van that nearly killed him when he was crossing the street. It seems as if his novel Christine and Misery predicted some aspect of this, but it was also the date June 19, 1999 that he incorporated some "easter egg" trope within his books, including Doctor Sleep where a child is wearing number 19 Jersey (and this "Number 19" is shouted just before the kid is killed in agonizing pain.) The driver of that van would die from an overdose on painkillers, and actually died on Stephen King's birthday (so perhaps it was intentional.)

https://www.ranker.com/list/stephen-kin ... rin-mccann

Dick Hollorann returns (even though he died in Shining, but clearly this suggests something.)
https://screenrant.com/doctor-sleep-dic ... ing-movie/

The book/movie misery was about drug addiction
https://www.slashfilm.com/855359/how-mi ... periences/







Not surprisingly, this happened (the 16-year-old actress was groomed and taken advantage of; it should also be mentioned she never knew her father who was an emigrant Doctor, so she probably had daddy issues since she was interviewed as saying she wanted to be Polanski's mistress, even if he was in his 50s by then and his behavior would still be considered statutory rape in the USA.) :
https://tvovermind.com/whatever-happene ... tte-lewis/

Roman Polanski had a decade prior become a fugitive of the US following this case (but the victim ends up siding with him due to the media shitstorm that takes advantage of the story.)
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... cuzzi.html

The narcissistic dipshit Quentin Tarantino also defended Roman Polanski, even though it's quite obvious he drugged a 13-year-old and ignored her pleas to stop.

The movie was a "bomb," costing $40 million and only making about $6.5 million worldwide.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_(1986_film)

List of Movie bombs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_b ... fice_bombs

I guess France has a rapey culture, or perhaps it's just Hollywood in general? The same narrative of grooming is partly why Bill Cosby had people turn a blind eye to his behavior for so long. I recall about a decade ago noticing the reports on him, similar to how Jeffrey Epstein was noticed but generally ignored by the media (and likewise Harvey Weinstein had very visible attention being given before people caught on to what was being said about him.)

I was looking at Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Xbox 360 gameplay and seem to have overlooked it, and since it was never released on PC, came across a Unity engine remake.

I started with Firenze and ended up in. . .

MIYOSHI, JAPAN
Nagoro "Scarecrow" Village
629番地5 Higashiiyasugeoi, Miyoshi, Tokushima 778-0201, Japan


I think he clued into why that town has a population problem. . . it is kind of sad to consider (as it would have occurred prior to her returning,) and evidently, the same reason that many people left the town (presumably to gain a standard of living when a town's economies shift towards bigger cities) is probably the reason she felt compelled to remember the townspeople by,

It's sort of like playing the Shenmue game and realizing the world constructed in commemorating such locations are only a figment of the interaction that would otherwise exist. I can relate but also consider it a kenopsia of liminal space.

If it was a man that was making the dolls, you would assume it was a serial killer with necrophilic tendencies. . .

Speaking of dolls:

OKIKU, THE JAPANESE HAUNTED DOLL THAT PUTS CHUCKY TO SHAME

Sword of Doom (Toshiro Mifune)


https://blackbeltmag.com/best-samurai-movies

Watching Yojimbo, etc.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yojimbo#Sequel

This was based on the film (which was also inspired from another film) and also had other Directors reprise the "Yojimbo/Sanjuro" character after Mifune had a falling out with Kurosawa following Red Beard (where he was required to grow his beard out which made him unsuitable for other roles for other Directors.)

Fistful of Dollars (Sergio Leone)


An anime that may have been inspired by it


Toshiro Mifune was wanted by George Lucas to play as Obi-wan Kenobi. . .

An interesting glimpse into the Tokugawa period are bloody footprints left over from a standoff with invaders.

Been watching Atlanta of late. That one episode was deep. No. 8 was so deep. Like if you drop some behind some you can't move, or you could if you didn't drink that last can o' brewski juice - type thang. So you leave it there. Your body's got arthritic features from a primarily liquid type diet so while you know that some's address it ain't gone no where well because you ain't gettin' it. Nvm. Thomas Washington's photos wearing a fedora are hilarious looking btw. Love that show. Gambino is a funny name. Because I was at a rehab with one of the Gambino's cousins out here in Modesto, CA (Fall '21). Since he had caught the stomach cancer it made him grumpy and therefore taught me how to wipe down tables in the cafeteria with that East Coast way. Doing cleaning chores under the guidance of a Gambino subliminally encourages sobriety. I ended up leaving the Modesto Gospel Mission's program because it was a chore cult that caused me anxiety. I did however see Gambino on the bus last month. We picked up where we left off... Neither of us have ever said much. He doesn't have any teeth. Anyway, I've decided I'm not crosseyed like Thomas Washington because they're not always oriented like that in orbit so it's not the same thing, I think. But if there's a chance they are I blame it on over practicing a variant of recreational strabismus. I hope others copy me.

Edit

BBCode is tough as nails. I hope I can learn html.
