I got the Howling Wolf Documentary and Ghengis Blues about a blind blues singer guitarist who learns Tuvan Throat singing and travels there to win a competition.

I Met Paul Pina many years ago and partied with him in China Town and North Beach in San Francisco. He taught me a blues lick and told me "it's Yers Man you can have that one"!

Too bad he died. he was a cool cat.

Wow Green Genes! I can't believe you dug this up! How funny to read this, too bad Isaac self censored many of his comments. I am shocked to be reminded of how deluded one person can be! It was so desperately important to him that Frank share his every world view, he manufactured an entire reality where anything Frank said he didn't like, was "sarcasm". Amazing! Anyone know his last name? I feel like hunting him down on the internet and finding out how life's been since he was booted from his haven here.

Wow... Okay, I'm not going to initiate contact, I already learned more than I wanted to know. I walk away, but not before posting this from his website.

"MYSTIC STUDIOS PRODUCTIONS has been the OFFICIAL DESTINATION of UNDERGROUND COMIX since 2003. Home to Horndog, Tales of the Unrefined and Soft Desire, MSP was founded by underground cartoonist Isaac M. Baranoff. In 2007, MSP broke new ground in underground comics by releasing a webcomic edition of Horndog, the first online comic to be based on an underground comic strip. MSP will release the first issue of its limited series pulp comic, Soft Desire, in 2010. "
You heard it right, Isaac now believes he posted the first underground webcomic. Wow. Just... wow!

I think you will actually enjoy the I Need That Record documentary, FOWL, it has much to do with the I am the Enemy discussion...

I watched this documentary about Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple on Norwegian television a couple days ago. It's an amazing, tragic story, and really well told. Check that out as a fan of the Perfect Stranger, Fowl!

I've seen one on Jim Jones. The CIA was all over that operation, the documentary I watched had one of the survivors talking about all these military men coming out of the jungle and mowing down all the people who were refusing to drink the punch. The official story has it everyone went willingly, in reality, a lot of those people were flat out murdered.

So, if you willingly except that everything is a government plot, does that make you any different that those who think that the government never lies?

That was based on the close ties that Jim Jones had to many government officials (fact) and the testimonies of people from the camp in a documentary that had nothing to do with conspiracies at all, they just said in a mainstream Jim Jones documentary that all these military people came out of the forest and started firing on everyone in the camp. There is more chicanary involving blocking anyone from surveying the crime scene and doing autopsies, but that information came after my curiosity was tweaked by the mainstream doc. Big mind control experiments like Jim Jones almost always have government involvement. This is a science you don't learn out of a cracker jack box.

To answer your question Cal, I don't think you are a pentagon funded government disinfo plant if that helps!

Well if you were a plant, you wouldn't say that. But then again you'd have access to my psychological profile, so you'd KNOW I'd think that disproved you as an agent.... ARGH!!!!!

Breaking The Taboo - Film

Narrated by Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman, "Breaking the Taboo" is produced by Sam Branson's indie Sundog Pictures and Brazilian co-production partner Spray Filmes and was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade. Featuring interviews with several current or former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.

No one ever touches something I've been aware of for over 20 years. FZ was right in his skepticism about "AIDS" but he, like 99% of everyone finally capitulated to the conventional wisdom (i.e., scientific dogma).

But the multi-billion dollar ("billion" only?) lie can be begun to acquaint oneself with here:
