The Thief Catcher.

Sunday nights would not be perfect without at least a drizzle of nostalgia-inducing jazz music or a pinch of silent movie IMDb browsing, therefore, please do take a look at Charlie Chaplin's first motion picture ever made, discovered only recently by film collector Paul Gierucki.
The cinephile was browsing through the rummage of an antique store in Taylor, Michigan, when he encountered a 16mm film print hidden in a trunk. As lovers of film don't come short of an obsessively compulsive attention to detail, he instantly dismantled the mystery tape as to being a 'Keystone Comedy - 1914 - dispersed classic', entitled "The Thief Catcher". Soon after the revelation took place, Charlie Chaplin's first born was brought back to life at its re-premiere during the 46th annual Cinecon Classic Film Festival at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.
I certainly wish I could have been there.
Clap, clap.

Psychotherapy: a menace to civilization?

The last year of high school, useless days of endless career conventions, only to end up making the wrong decisions whilst discovering that the group heading towards the Faculty of Psychology information desk is mostly made up out of the school's renown sociopaths and most feared OCD driven schizophrenics.
Like a time bomb ticking slowly, awaiting to ensure its lasting influence upon its vulnerable environment, the faculty of psychology is bursting with the amass of self-explorative mentalists who decide to help others since they have never been able to help themselves.
Anyhow, why rant about only one of the many cases of threatening backwardness in society, when one can celebrate art and irony? Baggelboy, an illustrator from the very East of London has created "A Colouring Book for Psychotherapists".
I wonder how his shrink feels about this.

British Petroleum, der Führer.

BP, the US Defense Department's major supplier for gasoline in Afghanistan, the 21st century example of unwilling suspension of disbelief.
After the holocaust, alongside Coca Cola, supporting the petroleum industry has become one of the best global conscience cover-ups ever known to mankind.

Western civilization has proved to be prime in dominating "tech world", nevertheless succeeds in remaining a cold, sad, ethically poor example of human existence, one that chooses to sit back and indulge on reality documentaries about the mentally challenged wannabe singers and starlets. This all, to ignore the simple truth that mankind will forever live in a dictatorship ruled by the multinational polluters of planet earth and morality.

Did anyone see last night's X-factor?
