2001: A Space Odyssey - Stanley Kubrick's Alchemical Magnum Opus "I'm sure you are aware of the extremely grave potential for social shock and disorientation caused by this information. We can't release it without proper conditioning." - Heywood Floyd The idea of this thread came from reading Alchemical Kubrick on the Alchemy Lab website, a love for Kubricks 'Work' and an interest in Alchemy. Let me disclaim now that I am no initiate or adept, so go easy huh. The credit must go to the author of the article Jay Weidner, as most of the work included here is his. Many poets, philosophers, artist, sculptors, scientist, builders, and a few movie producers have hidden the 'Great Work' within their creations so as only if you have the eyes to see, you will. This is about Stanley Kubrick (Cube-Brick Hexahedron?) There are three recognized types of practical Alchemy, Spagyric (plant), Mineral, and Animal. Stanley was notoriously famous for not discussing what the movie was about, causing the endless frustration of generations of people. Solve et Coagula Earth 1.
5 Possible Storylines For The Next Star Wars Movie October 31, 2012 - Disney just paid over $4 Billion for Lucasfilm and the jewel of George Lucas’ eye, the Star Wars Universe. The House of Mouse wasted no time, announcing that a new live-action Star Wars film (tentatively titled Star Wars Episode VII) will be released in 2015, with new films following every few years. With only two to three years to plan, shoot, and edit, a story is probably already in place. But that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate. Here are five possible directions that Disney could take its new toy in. 1) The Thrawn Trilogy A set of three books written by sci-fi master Timothy Zahn, the Thrawn Trilogy starts with 1991′s Heir to the Empire novel, the first official foray by Lucasfilm into the world now known as the Expanded Star Wars Universe. The Thrawn Trilogy would allow for some storyline separation between the 2015 Star Wars movie and Return of the Jedi. 2) The Rise of Darth Vader 3) Pick up right after Return of the Jedi 4) A Boba Fett Spin-Off 5) The Old Republic
My Interpretation of Heliofant's "I, Pet Goat II" Thanks to this great thread here by user nimbinned, I was able to come across this great video of I, Pet Goat II by team Heliofant. The animation is some of the best I have seen in awhile, even better than major Pixar and Disney movies (albeit much shorter). It is obviously a highly symbolic short and subject to many different interpretations, but I thought I would propose my take on it and you all can hopefully add your takes or tell me why I am wrong. I do regret not adding this to the main thread already started but I am about to post so much content that I did not want to hijack nimbinned's thread. So, in case you haven't seen the video, I will post it here. [The video has been previously taken down by YouTube (surprise, surprise) and uploaded by a random user. The name "I, Pet Goat" is reference to the storybook read by President George W. Here is the video of him in the class: President Bush took a lot of flak for not leaving immediately. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
