Kubrick’s legacy of smoke and mirrors (Part II)

Kubrick’s legacy of smoke and mirrors (Part II)

One doesn’t wish to give loyal readers the impression the author especially delights in slaughtering sacred cows. Nevertheless, research indicates the legendary artist of Hollywood cinema, Stanley Kubrick, is yet another actor in history’s grand stage play.

The artistic legacy created under his name, however, is comparable or perhaps even surpasses those established by Spielberg, Scorsese or Orson Wells. In that sense, one should never be mistaken, the celebrated body of artistic works created by the mysterious figure known to posterity as Stanley Kubrick well-deserves its legendary status in the pantheon of great modern cinema.

Be that as it may, research has also demonstrated Kubrick’s biography and personal details may have been born out of nothing more than smoke and mirrors.

Now, in attempting to smash through the hall of mirrors and clear away the plumes of smoke, one hopes to erect new understandings from the rubble of what may appear to be the wanton destruction of a legend. Continue reading “Kubrick’s legacy of smoke and mirrors (Part II)”

The king of alternative media’s brazen manipulation

The king of alternative media’s brazen manipulation

The recent controversial hullaballoo surrounding Alex Jones, the self-proclaimed king of alternative media, amounts to much ado about nothing.

Well, not exactly nothing.

For, you see folks, all the manufactured media noise surrounding Alex Jones is really about the eradication from You Tube of all perceived competition to the king’s throne, and the successful and profitable launch of an Info Wars computer application.

Additionally, though, there are elements more calculating and perhaps even sinister concerning the very creation of the Alex Jones’ character image and the latest fabricated controversy enveloping it.

Alex Jones is nothing more than a controlled opposition cartoon character, a raving carnival barker, a covert confidence salesman and bogus sham created by the identical corporate mainstream media profiteers he appears to be railing against, designed to mock and discredit the very audience filled with truth seekers he appears to publicly cultivate.

And, one believes his very existence represents an enemy to free expression, freedom of thought, and the very idea of freedom itself. For, one hypothesizes that the recent purge of You Tube “truth” videos represents a genuinely deliberate, but nonetheless cleverly designed ploy, utilizing the most flimsy of legal parameters (hate speech?), not to censor Jones, but to eliminate once and for all, any perceived future competition that may threaten the hegemony of Jones and his program Info Wars’ over the existing alternative media market share.

Jay Leno: the man behind the mask (part II)

Jay Leno: the man behind the mask (part II)

For those still shocked over the author’s conclusions as to the true identity of legendary American talk show host, Jay Leno, the following may not serve to offer any additional comfort.

Nepotism is the lifeblood of Hollywood and the entertainment industry at large, and most of the famous stars of stage, screen, and television are, in fact the sons and daughters of the elite, the rich and the socially prominent, and many possess genealogical ties to European nobility and even royalty.

The host actor behind the mask of celebrity comedian and late night television luminary Jay Leno proves to be no exception – a multi-talented actor capable of assuming and maintaining various and simultaneous roles while under the glaring scrutiny of both public and press.

Rest assured, only the most highly skilled and well-trained performers can maintain the grandest of deceptions.

Nevertheless, the larger question looms: should such grand deception be allowed to persist, or does it persist because of an apathetic public acutely stricken with blind celebrity worship?

Jay Leno: the man behind the mask (part I)

Jay Leno: the man behind the mask (part I)

Before the turn of the millennium in the early 1990’s, celebrated comedian Jay Leno became the heir apparent to one of television’s most legendary talk show hosts in Johnny Carson and went on to experience a long reign upon the throne of what was the perhaps the most prestigious position in all late night television.

While a majority of Americans enjoyed his everyman persona and sharp wit, the millions tuning in each night to witness the celebrated host deliver another witty  monologue then breezily banter with a myriad of celebrities would never have dreamed the man they thought they knew as Jay Leno may not have been who he claimed to be.

While even now, the following may seem shocking, the former host of America’s Tonight Show was yet another Hollywood created character, who while no doubt entertaining, and perhaps even genuinely comical, was in fact yet another Hollywood created impostor!

Kubrick’s legacy of smoke and mirrors (Part I)

Kubrick’s legacy of smoke and mirrors (Part I)

Legendary film makers are not just artists, they are black magicians.

In the great masonic tradition of duality, though Hollywood’s cinematic technicians create images which on the surface may seem only for the purpose of entertainment, esoteric messages consisting of numbers, symbols, and primary colors are almost always found embedded beneath the surface of the cinematic façade. Within the films attributed to the direction of one of Hollywood’s most cherished directorial icons, Stanley Kubrick, there are literal treasure troves of such esoterica waiting to be discovered. Time and again, the linear plot lines of Kubrick’s films are demonstrated to be merely gauze-thin veils, or perhaps in some cases, even vehicles for the genuine and subversive esoteric messages he wished to convey.

Of course, to most of the movie going masses, these esoteric messages have remained hidden – that is, until now.

But beyond considering occult veils, is there yet another matter to consider when it comes to assimilating the true significance of Stanley Kubrick’s legacy? Perhaps it is better and more to the point to enquire, who is the real Stanley Kubrick?

Could it be, this filmmaking legend was merely another character portrayed by a host actor, yet another legend propped up before the public before suffering what appeared to be a tragic death?

Did Kubrick indeed die, or did his demise represent yet another example of Hollywood conceived theater? If so, did he merely depart history’s grand stage but for a moment, only to reappear from behind the curtain in the guise of  yet another character, donned in an entirely different costume?

Suicide of teen spirit smells like a hoax (part II)

Suicide of teen spirit smells like a hoax (part II)

I deeply apologize in advance to loyal readers who may have expected the delivery of this final installment involving the life and career of the late Kurt Cobain much sooner. But preparations for the publication of the author’s new book, Twilight’s Last Glory, have kept one preoccupied.

Also, the author would like to extend his sincere gratitude to all those who have recently and graciously decided to follow Newsspell.

No doubt, you will find what is published here to be thought provoking, informative, and perhaps at the very least, entertaining.

Since time immemorial, humans have harbored a macabre fascination with the concept of death, and the mere contemplation of it seems to overwhelmingly elicit both fear and awe. Whether through literature, movies, or television – when presented with death’s mysterious inscrutability – humans are brought to the edge of life’s precipice and forced to contemplate the valley of death’s dark depths.

Faced with uncertainty’s anguish, one finds the comforting sight of one’s religious edifices pulverized to dust, scattered like ghostly trails of wind-blown fall leaves, and achieving ultimate absolution becomes tantamount to grasping evergreen spring’s morning mist.

And yet, nothing, comparative to the contemplation of death’s mystery remains more intoxicating to the worshipful masses eternally drawn to stories that feature the mortal, but manufactured misfortune of mythical heroes, for only in death can such storybook heroes achieve legendary immortality.

That is why myths and legends of dead heroes endure, for although penetrating discussion of such may remain largely unspoken, nothing save death’s insatiable fixation for those struggling in quiet futility causes one to feel more alive.

Repetitive tales of the death of heroes also causes the masses to look for an escape from their sorrow through material acquisition, which benefits no one except the merchants, bankers, and the thirteen, ruling elite Jesuit families. As one will soon observe, the concept of death, or the flirtation with death, figured prominently with most of the famous pop culture characters this highly skilled host actor portrayed.

Though the author’s shocking and even incredible conclusions for this installment will no doubt invite incredulity, and perhaps even scorn and ridicule from newcomers and loyal readers alike, keep in mind that almost anything is possible in Hollywood’s magic land of Oz.

Yes it’s true folks, not only was Kurt Cobain a pop music character created by our old friend, Hollywood mogul David Geffen, the son of Barry Diller AKA Prince Eduard von Furstenberg, but Cobain’s host actor portrayed other famous Hollywood actors and musical performers (and not always belonging to the same gender!) some of whom also met with a suitably tragic, but scripted end.   Continue reading “Suicide of teen spirit smells like a hoax (part II)”

History and the lies agreed upon

History and the lies agreed upon

Considering all that has been published here concerning the concept of the actor based reality, an immediate thought occured to the author: can we therefore thoroughly rely on any account recorded as accepted history, or is the nature of history thoroughly subjective, open to radical interpretation?

One has a confession to make.

As some loyal readers may by now have surmised, the author has always harbored an affinity for history. From the time of one’s earliest memories, the epic stories of larger than life characters discovered in history books, whether infamous or benevolent, completely enraptured one’s imagination.

The story of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 contains all the elements utilized to hook the human mind’s fascination for intriguing and even salacious details – sex, romance, political intrigue, and epic displays of confrontational violence – all the elements of a well scripted and epic Hollywood melodrama.

Additionally, the story of the Battle of Hastings seemed comparable to those indelible stories encountered upon the pages of great literature, a wondrous tale inhabited by vividly drawn characters, filled with colorful glimpses of not only what it may have been like to experience another time and place, but perhaps even deeper and dramatic insights into human nature.

However, as impressionable youth advanced into adulthood, one began to increasingly contemplate: did any of these historical accounts, no matter how engaging, truly reflect an objective rendering of the truth?

Or, generally speaking, were the established accounts of human history, and specifically of the Battle of Hastings, merely a consensus of conspitratorial lies among those in positions of so-called authority and those belonging to reputations of scholarly renown?

Better still, are history’s tales of warriors, kings, and nobles maneuvering for power while fighting on blood soaked battlefields merely romantic, fabricated cover stories concealing a deeper truth? Continue reading “History and the lies agreed upon”
