hot nights, incendiary films

the man who owns the sweat property shows political movies in the back yard on thursday nights. i usually don't make it, due to being pretty done in after work, but last night i only had 2 clients instead of the usual 3....so i went over there about 8:30 to watch the last bits of "Loose Change 9/11, 2nd Edition" (see the link HERE) and the first bits of Michael Franti's movie "I Know I'm Not Alone," about his journey to Baghdad and Israel and the West Bank to see for himself the effects of living in occupied/war torn areas. i had to leave about 40 minutes into the Michael Franti movie due to exhaustion, but turns out that it is available on Netflix, so i'll be able to see the rest.

and the Loose Change film is available to watch for free on the computer, in case you're interested. i think it certainly raises some important questions that i'd like our "elected" leaders to address!

I think movies such as these should be promoted so much more than they are. I'm sure if the public were aware of them, they'd watch them.

THe corporations that own the distributors are Republicans. And sadly, none of us knew enough to care enough to protest all the mergers and acquisitions that led to the place we're in now, where so much is owned by so few.

We need a revolution.
