As a lover of film, make believe, and flights of fancy in general, I’ll just start off by saying that I love this film in so many different ways and on so many different levels. But I am deeply haunted by the message of the movie.
On one level it’s a movie about a wedding and a funeral. (That sounds familiar.) A sort of metaphor for life and death and how life is over before it even begins.
It’s also the story of the end of the world. In a not so science-fiction scenario of a previously unseen planet, Melancholia, (a.k.a. Planet X, a.k.a. Nibiru) that’s due to strike the Earth and end life as we know it.
According to Kirsten Dunst, it’s a movie about women and depression. The actress has been treated for depression herself and has said that she was attracted to the role of Justine because she saw the character as a sort of heroine. But the character of Justine is more like that of a poster child for post-modern dysfunctional feminism, who’s outer beauty and narcissistic lifestyle are nicely rewarded at work and in society. A character who’s depressed because of the empty and self loathing choices she’s made in her life, but in the end she is glorified for having at least lived a full and rewarding, albeit, depressing life. (Very mind fucking message. I’m sure the makers of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety pills will see profits soar even higher)
It’s also ironic how the movie mocks itself in this way when Justine mocks and belittles her sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) for trying to stage and manufacture a moment of peace and serenity in the face of the apocalypse by suggesting that they go to the balcony and have a glass of wine in their final minutes of life. Justine sarcastically asks Claire if she would like to listen to Beethoven’s celebratory Ninth Symphony as well. This is ironic because the whole movie was staged and crafted to sell Doomsday as a lifestyle choice, like a two hour commercial for Zoloft, set to the more cosmically down-beat and ominous tunes of Wagner.
In a way this movie acts as a retort to the other, more optimistic side of the “2012” crowd, who happen to believe that the cosmic shift will bring about a new age of enlightenment and human achievement. Writer/Director Lars von Trier on the other hand, skillfully glorifies and deftly pays homage to death, self destruction, vanity, money, sex, drugs and alcohol. In other words he is doing Satan’s work. (Why do people who work for Satan make so much more money than the rest of us?) BTW Thank you Lars for those wonderfully gratuitous naked scenes of the gorgeous Kirsten Dunst. Death never looked so beautiful.
All in all the movie was a majestic, visual portrayal of death, but a dismaying display of the human condition. The film’s protagonist Justine is beautiful and successful on the outside but a manic, bipolar, self-destructive whore on the inside. Justine’s message to her sister Claire is; “the Earth is evil; life on Earth is evil; no one will miss us because we are alone”.
All the main stream movie critics are falling over themselves to see who can praise this film more loudly for its’ stunning cinematic beauty and its’ complicated psycho deconstruction of the heroine who triumphs over death merely by embracing it. And I love this movie for these same reasons.
But the Masters of Mind Fuck have done it again. They have succeeded in giving us both the problem and the solution, all at once in a grand but seemingly innocuous yet celebrated work of art, about a depressed girl, a wedding, and two sisters who lead seemingly very different lives. Who both try and face the end of the world on their own terms. But at the literal end of the day, the message of the movie is clear: DON’T WORRY BE HAPPY, BE SAD, IT DOESN’T MATTER. JUST KEEP ON DRINKING, KEEP ON DOING DRUGS, KEEP ON FUCKING, JUST KEEP ON CONSUMING. BECAUSE THERE’S NOTHING ELSE YOU CAN DO EXCEPT EMBRACE THE TRUTH. OUR MOTHER EARTH IS A WHORE AND WE ARE ALL HER BASTARD CHILDREN. OUR FATHERS ARE WEAK, IGNOBLE, AND COWARDLY CREATURES WHO SHRIVEL IN THE FACE OF HORROR AND DESERT THEIR CHILDREN WHEN THEY NEED THEM MOST, UNABLE AND UNWILLING TO HELP. WE ARE ALL EVIL AND DESERVE NOTHING BETTER THAN WHAT WE ALL HAVE COMING. DEATH. DEATH IS COMING. COMING SOON.
This film is telling us what is to come. THEY are getting us prepared for something big. Melancholia is just another mental pre-conditioner for what the New World Order has in store for humanity. Whether THEY set about the events themselves, e.g., wars, financial collapse, food shortages, water shortages, and disease. Or whether a grand cosmic event rocks planet Earth, evidence shows that THEY have plans for survival. (D.U.M.B.) And for the rest of us they’ll have solutions. And we will praise them for providing the solutions for the problems that they themselves will have created or will have conveniently failed to warn us of. We will also thank them for allowing us to serve as their willing slaves, while we look the other way as THEY “cleanse” Mother Earth.
Hollywood movies are merely Satan’s projections of things to come or illusions of things that have already happened. THEY make films and control corporate media so that THEY can control how we think and behave in the present. This movie as well as other doomsday movies of the past decade all have the same message. They’re telling us about a future so bleak that anything short of total annihilation would be considered a godsend. A world in which the common man will rejoice just to be alive, no matter what indignities he might have to perform or endure. Hollywood hasn’t given us anything new in terms of messages, subliminal or otherwise. And there is a candidness about this movie that would have normally been refreshing, i.e. yes life sucks, yes people are self absorbed to the point of being evil, yes we will all die, and yes we may be alone. But we do not have to follow their script. It does not matter how we die. It only matters how we live.

This photo of Presidential Candidate, Michele Bachmann, looks curiously as if she were on the set of a movie titled; “Michele Does Main Street”. And if you still don’t get it,,, this photo looks like a porn star giving head to a foot long cock… and a dark dick at that. (perhaps to invoke Obama’s schlong)
When I first saw this picture posted on Facebook, I was like, ‘wow, someone got a lucky shot’. But after a few clicks, I realized how ubiquitous this image actually is. And if you take note of the little details, like how she’s dressed, like she’s going to a formal orgy and not the State Fair, and how Michele makes her husband Marcus take the first bite. A very subtle reenactment of the Adam And Eve story, and an attempt to assert her as a dominatrix. It’s also fair to say that she is literally deep-throating that giant cock. Add to that, everything in politics as in all media, is carefully manipulated, crafted, scripted, poled, consulted, and controlled to every minutia of detail, then it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that this was a “Hollywood” event.
I don’t know why THEY want us to associate Michele Bachmann with porn, I can only speculate on that. Maybe because so much of the 2012 Presidential Race is already so much about race, sexual orientation, and class. And in this one photo, you get it all in a flash. “Rich White Bitch Goes Down On Big Black Cock After She Makes Her Gay Husband Suck It First”

If you look around where ever you may be, you probably see a clock telling you what time it is. And there is also a good chance that there may be more than one time telling device within your field of vision. Some of this phenomena can be explained by technological redundancy, as well as a consumer driven desire to know exactly what time it is at every given moment. One study shows that the average American will look at the clock more than 250 times a day. It’s ironic because if one is so concerned with time management, than you would think that looking at the clock hundreds of times a day defeats the purpose.
We are essentially slaves to the clock in every sense. From athletes to CEO’s, time is a precious commodity. Next to raw materials (water, gold, wheat, etc., etc.), the labor required to convert the raw materials into things we need and desire, is all that we have and all that we really need. That labor, for better or worse, can be best measured by time. We’ve all heard the phrase; “time is money!” In fact, time is more valuable than money. If all the money in the world disappeared overnight, we would still be left with all the raw materials and our labor/time. The only two things we really need to function as a society.
The question is: To Whom does time belong to? A very long, long, long time ago, before the invention of the stop watch, time was measured not in seconds, but in days, moons, seasons, years, and the lifetimes of generations of our ancestors. Time, back then, was just another inescapable fact of nature. It was nothing that could be manipulated, or tinkered with for the benefit of profit. And for the most part people were free from artificial restraints on time.
Spicoli was just a naive little school boy when he thought that while in the classroom, every one had the same equal rights to the use of their collective time. And frankly, one doesn’t need to be in High School to know that you are always on someone else’s time. From the minute you are born, you time is stamped and the clock starts to click. The mother and newborn are allowed 24 hours to heal and pack their bags, if they’re in a hospital. They we’ll be expected back to see the Doctor after two weeks, then 10 weeks, then six month’s and so on and so on. Every person born today has a road map and that map is a timeline. A road map drawn not by a free people who decided collectively how to best spend their time to advance their community, but by the elite/royal slave masters, who want you to believe; that time belongs to them. And regular people are born to serve the needs of THEM, the Royalty. You can see how it all got started. A King or Queen wouldn’t be of Royal stature if he or she had to build their own castle. So they needed other people’s time or labor to get the things they wanted. And how does a King or Queen convince a people to hand over such a valuable commodity as a persons time or labor? Easy, you just say that you heard it from God, and this is what God wants. And if that doesn’t work then you just get a little smarter and you create some laws that require people to pay property taxes, income taxes, sales taxes, and more taxes. THEY create an environment that makes it impossible to be free from the constraints on our time and our labor. For now we need to always set aside some or our God given time to someone else’s needs. Just because THEY say so.
So most people may think that clocks are a natural thing to have around, just to remind us of what time it is. But I know that there are so many clocks around to remind us of who’s time it is. And it’s not ours. Just like the money we use represents a debt to the King or Queen, so to does the clock represent an artificial debt imposed on free people.
I urge everyone to get rid of their watches and wall clocks. Put some tape over the devices you need like the microwave and such. Free yourselves from the tyranny of “Mr. Hand” and declare that this is our time.Read More »
Top Ten Consequences Of U.S. Debt Default
10. China will demand ever cheaper and more dangerous and poisonous products from the U.S. labor force.
9. Japan will finally get sole ownership of Hawaii.
8. India will invade the U.S. on the basis of Economic Terrorism.
7. Somebody has to take the fall and go to jail. One of these two guys or both taking the blame might quell the angry masses.
6. Members of the elite Biderberg Group will be stripped of everything they own and forced to compete for food, clothing and shelter, like the rest of us.
5. Politicians will finally serve the people and not themselves.
4. “Would you like fries with that order?”
3. Hugo Chaves buys a birth certificate on-line and gets elected president of the U.S.
2. Saudi Arabia will no longer except Dollars for Oil. They will instead be paid with planes full of blondes.
1. Donald Trump will get fired.
Enron, AIG, Bernie Madoff, were all unsustainable ponzi schemes, that were given the dubious TRIPLE AAA rating by the ever most reliable and trustworthy Ratings Agencies. The same agencies that have rated U.S. debt as AAA.
The U.S. economy and therefore most of the worlds economy is just that, a ponsi scheme, where insiders profit from the miseries of losers and small time interlopers. Kinda like how Las Vegas operates. And nobody’s want’s to demonize the making of money because money supposedly makes the world go round. And it does. Money allows for goods to be traded. But when you jump to an economy where you are trading trades and swapping credit defaults, then things get complicated and probably for good reason. The simple truth that some people are creating vast amounts of wealth out of nothing and that this wealth creates huge disparities and have real damaging consequences for the rest of us, is probably the kind of information they would rather keep from us. Right up there with other National Security secrets that we are not privy to, because it’s so damn important that nobody knows the truth, because it can undo what they’ve accomplished for themselves.
As long as the U.S. Government is selling debt then We The People will be on the hook to pay back the world. And trust me somebody is gonna call in these loans. The question is how will They be paid back?
“WARRIORS OF THE APOCALYPSE”
By artist BRYAN SPERRY
The Rapture came and went. The Apocalypse, Doomsday, Armageddon, Nuclear Annihilation, Planet X, and Meteors are still laying in wait. And if you believe in math than you know that eventually something or “someone” will bring an end to life as we know it, here on planet earth.
“2012”, “The Book Of Eli”, and “The Road” are some of the most recent examples of how this topic infiltrates our minds and therefore our actions and eventually shows up in main stream media and popular culture. Some people choose to squirrel away vital necessities like water, ammunition, and even ketchup. Some people become zealous, philosophical, or down right mean and radical. (some people can’t handle the end of the world)
But if you’re a mellow cat like artist Bryan Sperry, you take that shit in stride and do what he always does… make art. And although he spends some time pontificating conspiracies and end game scenarios, he is first and always will be a true artist. Putting his consciousness to form and expressing in a very real, visceral way, the kind of ideas movies are made of.
This body of work Bryan calls the “Warriors Of The Apocalypse” is somewhat eerie but mostly just beautiful. They are made up of found objects, including mannequins, which he’s been finding a lot of in thrift stores. A true sign of the end being near… That is, at least for small retail establishments.
