Now that I made all that clear, let us begin.
What does Aquarianism stand for?
Look at how sweet they are, my fellow aquarians. And listen to what they have to say:
Concerned Men And Women Implementing Divine Administration Within An Intentional Community and Eco-Village, Who Believe That They Are Destiny Reservists Called By God From All Around The Globe To Help Try To Solve The Problems Of The World By Serving Humanity On A Local As Well As A Global Scale And Who Are Trying To Bring Peace And Justice To Our Planet.It's very important stuff - you can tell by the fact each word is capitalized.
But read closely - Concerned Men And Women Implementing Divine Administration - rings a bell?
And there is more evidence the AOA is not as good as advertised. Not that I am going to present it to you or anything - I am at work after all!!
Take Beyond the Horizon: Visions of a New Millennium by Walter Mercado
Now in the Age of Aquarius, everything becomes unified. All our differences, all our dualities mix together like the fragrances of a flower shop
Our individual worth comes from inside, ... and what we can give to society. Now our drastic differences dissolve and we integrate into the whole
Doesn't that just describe the McDonaldisation of the world?
And what about
People now seek the unification of all peoples, and we concern ourselves more with humanity in general than with ourselves
Doesn't that sound just a little bit scary? What if the AOA turns out to be just a bleak Matrix-like world???
Watched Spike Lee's Jungle Fever the other day. Wasn't my choice, I've seen enough of his movies. He's a funny one, Mr Lee. I understand his movies are important because they voice the concerns and frustrations of his particular slice of America. A couple of his movies are OK, but the rest are a bit samey, long, self indugent (he alwyas gives himself a part in which he gets to makes
racist controversial statements, and always gets to snog one beautiful black actress, which is a bit shabby in my book). I am not too sure about his obsession with Italo Americans, which appear in most of his movies. Are Italo Americans really the way they are portrayed in Spike Lee's movies? they make me cringe. Which i am sure, is exactly the effect the self important git guy is after.
No, I didn't like that movie very much.
The old classics are always the best, even when they are slightly too long.
Let the begin begin!
Going to watch the original Solaris at the cinema tonight, then off the Hampsted Heath for afters. Long weekend!
