Truth is stranger than fiction

Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

The Matrix

The Matrix has come to permeate much of our social discourse today. The movie is full of symbolic references, but most importantly it is the structure of the movie which gives us most insight about what it is the Wachowski siblings are painting for us, a battle between tyranny and freedom which can also be seen as order and chaos. In the end, the Matrix still speaks clearly to many of the questions being asked today.

Streets on Fire

A well told story by Lupe Fiasco, from his album "The Cool".

“Disease, the virus is spreading in all directions. No safe zone no cure and no protection. No symptoms define the signs of an infection. No vaccines, remedies, and no corrections. Quarantine the dreams and seal off the connections. Don't let them in, not a friend, not a reflection...”

They Live

Put the sunglasses on and see what's behind the veil.

They Live is a 1988 American science-fiction action horror film written and directed by John Carpenter, based on the 1963 short story "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson. Starring Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster, the film follows an unnamed drifter who discovers through special sunglasses that the ruling class are aliens concealing their appearance and manipulating people to consume, breed, and conform to the status quo via subliminal messages in mass media.
