Be frozen in your fear of every imagined scenario of what could go wrong instead of being rational about how we can overcome the challenges we face. And assume everything will go as absolutely horrible as possible. No real change is better than any progress, apparently.

I used to hate the phrase “fear monger” when it was used against conservatives but once I got out of knee-jerk defense mode and looked at my enemy’s argument more closely, and then re-examined my own, I saw how apt the word is.

Also, Pat Robertson (who appears in the vid) has done a lot of good for humanity through his charity work but he’s done this country no good by helping to perpetuate a very hypocritical and distinctly conservative American version of Christianity.

You know what scares the hell out of me? The idea of Sarah Palin getting more support from my old party and holding any more powerful office than her governorship. That’s really scary. She’s a dumber female version of good ol’ W.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

This 6 minute short film is the basis of what became the full length District 9 movie coming out later this year. I like the style in general but I think it’s a bit heavy-handed to have it set in South Africa – that makes the race-relations messaging a bit too obvious.

I like the way the alien stuff is integrated/composited into the real world and the psuedo-documentary style, even though that’s not new at all, it feels right here.

It seems ridiculous, though, that the governments of Earth would only complain about giant floating ships with lines tethered to the ground sucking water and power out of our infrastructure. Someone would cut those or try to take down the ships.
