The Loving Trap

Enjoy this controlled demolition of a patrician bore, one who is strongly against conspiracy theories.

From a dialogue with another absurd chancer, Errol Morris:

ERROL MORRIS: There are those that believe that [the Gulf of Tonkin incident was] part of a conspiracy to escalate the Vietnam War. Here’s a question: are they right? And, in an even more general sense, is history primarily a history of conspiracy? Or is it just a series of blunders, one after the other? Confusions, self-deceptions, idiocies of one kind or another?

ADAM CURTIS: It’s the latter. Where people do set out to have conspiracies, they don’t ever end up like they’re supposed to. History is a series of unintended consequences resulting from confused actions, some of which are committed by people who may think they’re taking part in a conspiracy, but it never works out the way they intended.

Well that's all that history stuff sorted.

All ripped off from Bruce Conner (1933-2008)....with precious little grace

That puts Adam Curtis to shame.

And it's far more honest.

Unless, of course, Adam Curtis really believes everything he says.

"That puts Adam Curtis to shame."

The video that is, not the double orgasm inside 30 minutes.

Thanks to a late night Wikepedia binge with pretensions of narrative coherence initiated by a link in this post, I've just rediscovered that Toni Basil is only two years younger than my Mum which means that when I first saw her dressed up as a cheerleader and dancing on ToTP she was knocking 40

For reasons I don't need to go into right now, I find that all very disturbing

... it also means than Ms Basil is almost as old as Claire Grogan and Bjork, both of whom who overplayed that elfin-pixie thing well into their fifties

Not disturbing enough to prevent your first two little outburts on this thread!
