House of Cards – Season 3

hoc

Sorry, this is going to be a brief, but terrible review for House of Cards Season 3.
I never do TV reviews, but I was hoping, I don’t know, something… something better… something more…

First, I do like Kevin Spacey as an actor, and there are few who could play his cold-hearted, disconnected, pent-up, self-absorbed wife better then Robin Wright; of which I wonder if Cate Blanchett made a great study of for her role in Blue Jasmine.

I’ll sum it up. First two episodes were fine, last two were back on track, all the stuff in the middle was nothing, but filler which could have been either tossed into one, maybe two episodes, or rewritten completely to reflect the dark underbelly of what’s really going on in the world today. So yes, Clare, it was all a big fat lie. The whole Russian thing was stupid and borderline propaganda, no wait, it was propaganda. Does someone have a bone for Putin? Maybe someone can’t get past 1917? All the other foreign conflicts/appointment were ridiculous. Doug’s obsession/revenge was way too long. The Press Corp was basically stupid on the scale of a mockumentary, as was Frank’s book; which would have made a better TV series than the one they gave us. Seriously, know your audience no need to insult them. That said, if I missed anything else it’s only cause I’ve already forgotten. So why am I writing this review, because I feel tricked and manipulated, I expected to be in on the secrets, not one of its victims.

There’s so much ‘real’ already out there the writers could have picked it up like gum off a New York City Street. How interesting it could have been, but they gave us this cheese-wizzy version rather than the truth from Frank’s perspective – it could have been great! Instead the writers were either paid off or calling it in.

Side note: Author, Michael Dobbs, er… Baron Dobbs, is a British Conservative Politicians – SURPRISE!

Finally, the best line in Season 3: “I have God’s ear now.”
Well, I beg to differ.
Oh, and Spock died :(

 

Oh, and Lee Camp just reminded me of something else in HOC
Common Dreams: Real-Life Frank Underwoods: Netflix, ‘House of Cards’ and Third Way

Response to AmericaWerks:
“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” - R Buckminster Fuller

Marinaleda, a Socialist Utopia in Spain

lightbulb
Title: In Search of Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo; a socialists utopia
I’d like to make a daily or bi-weekly Youtube/Vimeo video in search of Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo, find out what he did or is doing during this world wide financial crises. I want to get an in-depth view of the village, including; working in the fields, stores, factories and help build the homes. As a commoner, educator and citizen journalist I want to learn first hand how this all works cooperatively. Upon returning I want to then figure out how to create a similar community in the US. I have to raise funds to get myself there and then follow-up in the US to accomplish this legally. If you know the best way to raise these funds or wish to sponsor this project let me know.

Here are some materials about the man and this place, what’s different is I want to document my experiences actually doing the work and living in and with this community.

2015

2015

In reflection: 2014 – The US took more steps closer to 3rd world status. It was the year of #ISIS and Russel Brand, pot and big ideas, big oil, big NSA, Russia, Ukraine, Scotland and the Israeli slaughter of children. Oligarchs got fatter, banker’s received more and bigger bonuses, bitcoin again, cops cops cops and more cops, bang! vaper’s vaped and firefox sucks or I need a new computer.

What will 2015 bring?
I’ll let you know next year, in the mean time blow your horn!
