I can’t stress enough how brilliant this is. It’s about how Sigmund Freud’s theories were used to reshape our society over the past century, about the strange, twisted journey we took to arrive at this insane cacophony of consumerist porno squalor in which we now dwell. It is incredible to look at our world in this context. How easily a people can be shaped. How different our world might be in another 100 years.

Adam Curtis is always on point. I think this was on Newswipe the other week. Anyway, here it is, doll. And if you haven’t watched The Century Of Self… well. I might have to blap that up.

This looks way better than that troubling classploitation movie that’s coming out, I gotta say.

I am actually going out tonight. And if I were in, I’d be working. BUT! Me in a parallel universe MIGHT not do either of these things, and might, in fact, watch a lot of telly on the internets. Telly like this:

NEWSWIPE!

Comic book scholar and occasional drinker Mark Cardwell, AKA The Bad Librarian from the excellent Bad Librarianship NOW!!! blog has started answering people’s questions via the medium of VIDEO PODCAST TYPE THING. I think you can ask him questions via his email, which is on the right hand side of his website, if you so wish. I am trying to think of a good one, with my awesomely clear Saturday head that came as a consequence of not drinking ANY BOOZE last night and kicking Joey2tits’ ass at Tekken. He says it was a draw but I won the last game and win ECHOES, so ballsacks.
