  1. The director and editor are the masters, the content revealed the slaves, and the spectators are the objects acted upon, moved in the direction the masters desire. In an age where traditional weapons terrify the powerful into inaction, the "Cold Wars" of frigid stasis, the camera has become the weapon of mass destruction.

    Everyone wants eyes and minds upon them. So create these carefully constructed illusions, the camera as the Supreme Sight, rendering our limited mortal frames so powerful, creating a world of spectators, replacing our own pathetic eyes with a deeply artistic rendering. Can we stop seeing with our own eyes and see in Tarkovsky-vision? Oh, what a wonderful dream we have. What we would give (surely our eyes, among much more) to see it realized.

    As the world dies and we become more desperate, as our hope in saving the world drives us to new extremes, as we need new ideas, new perspectives, new solutions, we are drawn to more and more powerful technologies. Surely when technology becomes sufficiently powerful our solution to ourselves will become clear and we will save the world.

    If it doesn't? Well then, just as smokers claimed they "didn't know" that smoking causes cancer, because of course they couldn't surmise that inhaling smoke was harmful, we can claim that we "didn't know" that powerful technology is not the answer. Who told us that desperation is driving our choices, after all, surely no one, or at least noone who matters.

    Surely if we fail to save the world then the fault is that the technology did not become *powerful enough*. That's what we'll tell ourselves, with a sage nod of the head in admiration at our good sense. We NEED Superman, and if that's not enough then the problem was that we didn't have Superman+.

  2. Totally worth my time while shaving and brushing my teeth. You two have cute personalities and hilarious chemistry. 👍🏽

  3. Self indulgent bourgeois media tosh meets pointless pointlessness. Stick to writing books, comrades….
