Clockwork Orange and AC/DC amazing


I write this blog sometimes thinking that it will appeal to someone, to touch them in some way, but I’m realizing that the web really isn’t about that, it is really about a huge untamed resource of words, images and films, most of which are banal, wicked and pornographic.  The fact that many people are out their writing things that are just as good as any book you read is completely amazing.  I think of the billions of hours spent by humanity to feed this monster for some vain hope of profit is even more amazing.

I rub shoulders frequently with a brilliant young man who is studying communication.  We often swap stories about how the web organism works, how blogging prospers or doesn’t, and about how theories about all this really are preposterous.  I like that word, as it falls in line with absurdity, which is my favorite concept for this season.

For all of you finding my blog because of the Clockwork Orange theme that is coming up across these pages, I salute you.  Do any of you associate AC/CD and Angus, with Clockwork Orange and Alex.  Ever seen their picture together?  Well how about now.

Crazy on Guitar -- Angus Young

You see that Clockwork Orange is this amazing film that goes into how life without choice is no life at all.  I just remember it as a film that showed a rape which was disturbing to me, and the plot of the film had long escaped my wee little mind.  Just like AC/CD’s Dirty Deeds and Highway to Hell really coagulate into one message of party on the way to hell.

Psychopath and loving it

Actually I had lost that amazing interest in writing this summer, and when I found out many of you only visit my site because of Clockwork Orange, I thought, maybe, for once, I’m needed.  Maybe you need more pictures of the gang.  Kubrick makes for this blog, not me.  He was the genius filmmaker, and I wish he had made Napoleon.  Maybe if we are all really good, he will give a showing in the spirit world, where he had hoped we all could meet.  I’d sit through 20 hours of Bonaparte just to get there.

If you stopped at my blog, read this post, and got here by looking for A Clockwork Orange, I salute you.  Please leave me a comment, letting me know why you were searching for that film’s pictures.  What are you rewriting a blog and think no one reads it otherwise.

Here is a recent Clockwork Orange Review and discussion for those of you interested.

      I had 5475 hits on that Clockwork Orange picture the 30 of Oct. I have been experimenting with how Google lists my photo — which I took from someone else’s site. Humm. Amazing that people stop to read anything these days — with Facebook and twitter ruining the minds of so many — when does anyone have time to read? Think about how whacked this is that something like 25,000 stop at my site for that one picture in 4 months.

        would it be regressive to post this to my facebook page?

        i got to you by the orange. nice bit, but in this day and age i didn’t feel compelled to read your other things. why not? i’m not sure. possibly because i’m supposed to be studying… just my thoughts. good stuff though. keep writing!

    I stopped by because of the Clockwork Orange picture. And yes, I did read the post. I have some of the same views of the internet as you. It’s sad how the world has been programmed in such a way. It’s as if the world is full of mindless children with short attention spans and a small vocabulary. All I can say about that is I do not to follow the assimilated populous and I challenge my children not to either. I like to call it the “ME” generation.

    I googled A Clockwork Orange, because I am in the process of forming an opinion on it, and am doing research.

    I read your post. I don’t understand why you mention the movie, and Kubrick, but not the book, and Burgess. It makes me sad.

    As for your thoughts on the internet, blogging and “feeding the monster”, I found them intriguing. Maybe you should develop them further, and not leave them in the rough.

      As with all my posts, they are but thoughts in transition. No clear defined answers for me, always morphic in nature and hardly the settings of stone . The clockwork orange book I haven’t read actually. Love to hear back on your opinions after you have formed them from researching this work.

      I believe that torturing criminals psychologically comes from behavioralist old school thinking, something the Nazis would have loved and something that would be as evil as going around beating old men and raping women. I’ve written something about testoterone and how that violence is connected to testosterone levels, but I would not want the justice system to castrate to eliminate crime.

      The best rehabilitation is soulful, not chemical.

Is History Funny?

We have all heard the expression “history repeats itself.” And so we also know that human beings have a tendency to forget harmful and even wicked events. We bury them. And once we bury the history, do we forget it? It struck me today that when Jerry Lewis died, people start talking about the film […]

Of Perfecting the Human Genome

Of Perfecting the Human Genome

What do we do when we’re all physically and mentally perfect? Congratulate ourselves on eradicating the need to help each other?  Shouldn’t everyone fend for themselves?  Is human society evolving or turning neanderthal? It’s always best to start a philosophical piece with questions. How perfect is the human race today?  We still have a world […]

Quesalupa Cheesy Breaking News

Convenience Foods People are about convenience foods, and now it seems that fat cats who own the news marketplace are about serving up news that is just as cheesy. They also don’t want to have to do the research to know what is fact or fiction on the internet. Actually companies have cookie which track […]

The Trash Economy

In the trash economy, they even pay you for picking up trash. You get fully state benefits, medical, and retirement. All you have to do is vote! The state will give you all you need to live in one handy-dandy, little white-plastic shopping bag. It’s all about the taxes. Without a balanced approach, states are […]

America the oligarchy: Cheating for the rich

Ever since I was a kid, I hated the idea of cheating. I didn’t like cheating because cheating made competition null and void. When someone cheated, they were usually a bully type of person. I suspect that’s the same today. People who are really highly competitive, and love to grind down opponents tend to want […]
