Friday Video Gallery – Fun & Reality

Now that our nice slow week is concluding (along with our snow) – below are some Hoboken411 Video Picks to help you kill some time this afternoon. We got a few today, ranging from fun, to ridiculous and down to reality.

Mainstream “news” is scripted

If you still don’t believe most of the “news” stories out there are scripted propaganda – then this ought to shine some light on that…

Bread & Circus: Today’s “celebrity”

I love this guy Mark Dice. He makes brilliant videos which pretty much show how friggin’ stupid most people in America are. I’m sure you’ve seen some of them. But this video talking about the next celebrity “Idol” Kendall Jenner (I had no idea who she was until I saw this video thank God) is hilarious. The verbiage he repeatedly uses makes it clear what he thinks of all this “bread & circus” nonsense which is distracting all the sheep.

Not as real as you’ve been led to believe

This video from marketing corp Victors & Spoils parodizes how fake most print images of “pretty” women are. But they mocked themselves in the spirit of this past Christmas holiday:

Why Fight? – Alan Watts

Finally, some serious (good) stuff. One of my favorite “philosphers” is the late Alan Watts. If you ever have fears or worries about the unknown, his books will ground you and help you live a more fulfilling life. Regardless, here’s a great video about why the world is in constant turmoil and filled with war & violence. You really out to check Alan Watts out if you haven’t already. But his concepts may be way too hard for younger people to comprehend. Almost impossible, I’d suspect.

And here’s another great speech he did. “The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple, and yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”

Enjoy your first weekend of 2014!

    Those Conan segments are great. I find it ironic it’s on the same media network that they potentially mock, but that probably shows you how incredibly stupid they as well as the viewers are. They can’t put 2 & 2 together.

    “Mainstream “news” is scripted”

    Read some interesting commentary on this topic today (in re the noteworthy antarctic rescue mission media omission) :

    “Why do they lie? And why do they lie on such insignificant details, when telling the truth would seem to do them no harm? For answers, you need to get inside the heads of your Columbia Journalism School SWPL foes.

    “The Leftoid Media Lie Machine operates under the direction of two fundamental psychological processes that exist in every human being, but are especially pronounced in your typical leftoid: Ego preservation and status whoring.

    “Media mavens and liberal lickspittles alike fancy themselves the cognitive elite; they take pride in their smarts and their education. They are world class humblebraggarts and suck-up credentialists. Their insufferable ideology — a caustic mix of snarkism, childism and feelsism — is their coin of the realm, the barter they use to signal their smarts and to draw up cultural battle lines that give them tactical advantage. When their beliefs are challenged, as is becoming more their reality every day thanks to shiv masters like yours truly, they go into rabid attack mode, because a threat to their egos is like a threat to their bodies. The leftoid is nothing if he is not his glowing, pulsing ego. If the leftoid loses his Narrative prerogative, he may as well lose his reason for living.

    “And so the temptation to lie lie lie is strong in the leftoid when the truth begins to come out and undercut his manicured mental world and cherished self-conception as an enlightened and kind-hearted wunderkind. He responds to the crisis by working tirelessly to keep that Overton Window securely in his playing field.”

    Heh.
