    The Evening News: Aphorisms 

    television, news

    The news: keeping abreast of one’s irrelevance dot com.

    One popular news page, which collects stories from other pages tells us more about the morbidity of the editor, than it does about “the news.”

    These days, keeping oneself “informed” about daily events takes precedence over developing one’s self to live a more humanizing life.

    The news is never about what is happening, but is always about what has happened – a fast-food history textbook occuring in real-time, breaking, broken.

    How dispassionately we can sit and watch tragedy after tragedy. It is the sense of disconnection and a pinch of boredom that makes bad news tolerable, and maybe even a bit…enjoyable.

    Sometimes we crave the heebiejeebies.

    Trust me: “Who is writing the news that I am reading?”

    Zach Galifianakis’s “Visioneers” Screening Dates (October/November) 

    If you are near Austin, Los Angeles or San Francisco, you may be interested in checking out director Jared Drake’s film, “Visioneers” starring Zach Galifianakis. If you have already seen this film, would like to hear your thoughts. I admire the work of Galifianakis and this film looks promising.

    The synopsis, from the Visioneers website is as follows: “George Washington Winsterhammerman lives an ordinary life. He has a wife, a kid, a house, and a boat. Every day George gets in his minivan and goes to work as a Level Three Tunt at the Jeffers Corporation, the largest and most profitable corporation in the history of mankind. It is an utterly comfortable life, but when people around George begin exploding, he fears he might be next. George visits his doctor and learns that the dreams he’s been having are a symptom of impending explosion. Unfortunately, George can’t stop dreaming, and as the explosion epidemic worsens, he is forced to question the life he’s been living.
