Darren’s Alternative Theory – It’s About Being Human

Darren’s latest… warning; there’s one or two minor spoilers in here.

The thing with living in this current era is that social networking has created Zombizoid behaviour, where culture has adopted the same worth as fashion – constantly changing & disposable.

This is seen in the most extreme instances with anything Simon Cowell happens to be involved with… do you remember this bloke, perhaps?

That’s the winner of The X-Factor in 2005, Shayne Ward if any of you from the UK had forgotten? But that’s not to say being a Zombizoid is exclusively the property of those whom find ITV enjoyable… this infection now has mutated to those who should have been immune to it – educated individuals*.

How many people do we know who will smugly boast of downloading the latest episode of…

‘Breaking Bad’ [AMC] has yet to be broadcast on one of the five major UK Television Channels, so a significant amount of people believe that by watching it they are being hip and ‘in on the secret’.

This attitude occurs in the numerous lodges of The Freemasoinc Brotherhood, yet at least you can understand whilst never agreeing why they wink at each other smoking their Cigars and sitting in those Chesterfield Chairs with a smirk… as they are actually doing things instead of illegally downloading the latest episode of an American Television series.

Now, ‘Breaking Bad’ might be that rare classification of a Television Series that has the sensibility of a Motion Picture, yet I am fed-up of hearing pompous idiots in the Kitchen area of House Parties talking in-detail about it, knowing that the majority of those within hearing distance haven’t got a clue.

So, I’ll never watch ‘Breaking Bad’ as I don’t want to be part of any elite let alone one that thinks just because they read The Guardian Newspaper[UK], following that publications mantra, they are some sort of Higher Homosapien. Some people I know hold The Guardian in such high esteem they could rival this individual in the utter devotion stakes of literature…

Yet, I found something a couple of years ago that I was convinced was going to be taken over by those fu%#ing Zombizoids, as it had good looking young actors in a contemporary non-London setting, and was based on the Supernatural.

This amazing Series in your humble writers opinion is the best drama the BBC have commissioned in 16 years since the still fresh ‘This Life’. Check the dialogue on the scene below, particularly how the writers are able to make a clever change around sensitivity, feeling & empathy from the first scene to the second, as normally it would be the Male who would be portrayed as the insensitive or emotionally ignorant one in a relationship:

– –

‘Being Human’ is partly classic British Sitcom, about friends with individual behavioural quirks that need one another. Yet during times of stress these differences in personality can create conflict, taking that very friendship to the edge.

It was refreshing as it sums up a current generation or two (I am in my mid 30’s) that are in a way lost as everything is transient, from the time of going to University in another city/town, gaining employment in another location or meeting a person on-line then deciding to leave home to establish that romantic connection.

Don’t get me wrong, not being trapped into the community an individual is born into does have it’s advantages unlike a century ago, but noting is ever perfect apart from a certain Title Winning Team of the 1987/1988 Season.

Yet, the friendship between a Ghost, Werewolf & Vampire should be more for teenagers instead of adults but its genius is how it always nailed humanity. We’ve all been to this place both crying in bed for a lost love or trying to lift the mood of a depressed friend:

– –

Things started to get Political at the latter stages of Season 2 when a character depicted as the Head Honcho of Avon and Somerset Constabulary – ‘Chief Constable Wilson‘ was shown collecting protection money from the Vampire Community of Bristol.

Things really got my attention when ‘Chief Constable Wilson‘ gave a proposition to his Vampire counterpart ‘Mitchell‘ that the Vampire Community of Bristol could feed their hunger but only on selected targets – these being repeat offenders. This would therefore lowering the Crime Statistics thus making the Chief Constable look good to the unaware Human population.

Normally, the BBC is very conservative when dealing with the issue of corruption in the UK, especially within the Public Sector, as that organization receives vast amounts of money from the British Population. Yet here it was dealing with it in a Comedy-Horror Series created for viewers in their late teens – early twenties.

As mentioned extensively here at GeneralJimmy.com , the British Broadcasting Corporation are guilty at best of a worrying lack of awareness around one of it’s stars: Sir Jimmy Savile.

Yet, unlike that mentioned lack of awareness at senior levels at the BBC; Seasons 3 to 5 of ‘Being Human’ gave even more varyingly stronger hints linking the untold nature of the work in South America, a place where very dodgy groups find shelter, to the Police being infiltrated by groups with sinister intentions, and then onto strange clues on unsolved cases in Britain over the past 20 years e.g:

The character reading the newspaper just happens to be ‘The Devil’ (Phil Davis) from Season 5, the final season of ‘Being Human’.

You couldn’t watch ‘Game of Thrones’ [HBO] for three Seasons only for the main characters to be killed-off & replaced as this would upset the rhythm. Yet somehow the writers of ‘Being Human’ [BBC] managed to pull off the impossible by achieving this task.

Season 5 was very direct on the detrimental impact that the current Economic Recovery Plan of the UK Government is actually having on services designed to protect the population. I was surprised that such strong & obvious criticism was allowed, yet that might be possible due to those mentioned Zombizoids not devouring ‘Being Human’.

This is my favourite scene in the entire 5 Seasons of ‘Being Human’, due to it’s exquisite pacing enabling more to be done in less than 2 minutes than some Films that an hour and a half…

‘Being Human’ proves the point that something can be made on a small budget and retain a high production value, simply because in the end it’s all about dialogue & good casting. If you haven’t see it then get the complete ‘Being Human’BBC Box-Set that hopefully should be out in November 2013.

Note*: Obtaining a University Degree is to be respected but all it shows is the individual is skilled at simply applying what they have been taught over a 3 year period – this is knowledge. Now Intelligence is taking education taught & creating NEW ideas even at times questioning that very education. So Zombizoids exist that also happen to have Phd’s.

Stop trying to be everybody’s friend, the 21st December 2012 is coming..!!

One of the things I despised in my youth was the American S**tcom – ‘Friends
[1994 – 2004].

This was due to it’s worrying depiction of New York City being an oasis of White People, when in reality the same period of time was the apex of a certain Sean Combs that just happened to also come from Manhattan.

This being, a prime example of his purple patch circa 1995…

Now, I am NOT saying that if you the reader enjoyed or still watch endless repeats of the show on Channel4 [UK National Television Station] that you’re a subconscious white supremacist – instead replace the racism with a predilection for being rather bland and lacking any individuality. Get the picture… you don’t at the moment but hopefully by the time you’ve pondered this article you’ll start to question yourself, possibly for the first time.

Now the thing with ‘Friends’ was that it had the same impact of Swine Flu, able to take over vast amounts of people due to one person in a collective having ‘the infection’ then spreading it via word of mouth to others.

Everybody began recreating scenes giving exact synopsis of the latest episode leading to some bizarre acts of one-upmanship I’ve seen, going a little bit like an actual incident that happened in the common room during my Sixth form days:

Alan: ‘Joey, goes on the phone to that Phoebe where’s me $20 that I lent you in the Coffee Shop? If you haven’t got it then you best Toss me Salad as Chandler is getting his leg over tonight at Monica’s. Phoebe then goes if you give me another $20 I’ll lick your feet..!! That bird is proper off her head’.

Barbara: ‘No, you got it wrong she told Joey for another $20 she would swallow him & and let Ross watch but they both laughed as Ross is a clown’.

Alan: ‘You sure?’

Barbara: ‘I am sure cos’ I was giving you head whilst it was on but you weren’t paying any attention, as always’.

The impact of ‘Friends’ has delivered comedy for people that simply out of desperation want to connect with as many people as possible. Rebellion isn’t cool any longer it’s now all about conformity. Resulting in…


Now Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant in my book seem like quite good people as they’ve possibly realized that they have acquired millions of fans – sorry sad bastards, sorry dick-riders – that think even when they blink it’s funny. Hence them creating a show in which their friend goes around the world on an all-expenses paid whilst they sit in a studio, watching the footage, and laughing at his stupidity.

Erm… didn’t we see something with a very similar format years BEFORE on MTV, except this was far more creative and & enjoyable:


Yet, good on Gervais, Merchant, Pilkington & and now Willow thee Heroic Dwarf for making as much money as possible living the Global V.I.P Jet-Set life. At least these four aren’t in positions of power supposedly representing the people, particularly those in poverty, by living extravagant lifestyles on the blag.

I’m not all about criticism as I do at times deliver solutions & and this costs no money whatsoever.

On Friday 21st December 2012 at 11am (1100hrs) UK Time, the Earth will complete it’s 20,000+ year journey reaching the centre of the Milky Way. Yet, this information wasn’t obtained by BBC Science Poster Boy Professor of Particle Physics Brian Cox but by an ancient culture: the Mayan Civilization of what is known today as Mexico.

To know about Astrophysics you need electricity, then Information Technology for precise data to declare dates of The Universe including Planets. No evidence currently exists that shows these highly mathematical people had such equipment yet the question remains; how did they uncover such information? Time-Travel, perhaps?

Evidence of such being provided by the exquisite artwork on the tomb of Mayan Ruler:

K’inich Janaab’ Pakal.

If you aren’t even willing to consider the possibility that the above is some sort of Spaceship then you really have watched far toooo many episodes of ‘Friends’!!

All I can advise you is that perhaps on Friday 21st December 2012, Humanity hopefully will connect with something on a mass yet also individual basis that raise our interest to such an extent we will no longer accept sh**e Television & plastic celebrities.

We must remember that diversity is the key along with having an open-mind to at least investigate the possibilities of life or would you rather pay to be one in an audience of fellow thousand zombizoids laughing at Michael McIntyre trying to be funny but never even coming close to succeeding.

Arcade Fire, Spike Jonze & Martial Law in America?

Arcade Fire, Spike Jonze & Martial Law in America?

The majority of you might be surprised that something as powerful as this, created by award-winners in Popular Music & Cinema is hardly known about – yet this is sadly the case. What needs to get your attention is why the majority of you are interacting with this for the first time?

Shouldn’t the subject matter of the above Short Film got headlines especially from the Music Press along with that once cool but these days totally self-righteous British Newspaper The Guardian.

Before, some of you think that it might have been caused by a lack of promotion from Arcade Fire’s representatives, I’ll take the alternative view that’s it was way toooo close to actual reality..!

It must be remembered that the United States of America in terms of land-mass is more like that of a continent, therefore it will always contain varying different views on socio-economics based on geographic location. Residents living in San Diego (California) will be totally different from those living in Cleveland (Ohio).

uan

Whilst in the UK, we have differences this is generally on a North vs. South basis, strangely summed up in the current Television Classic – Game of Thrones, yet due to a considerably smaller land mass we tend as a people to be on a more harmoniums wave-length.

Before, American readers take umbrage with my views; the United Kingdom is far from it’s title as clearly seen by the social tension of wide spread riots of 2011 especially in the Capital City – London.

Who exactly are Arcade Fire?

The common belief due to the Music Press is that the entire band are from Montreal, Canada hence their unique acclaimed style of music. Yet, if you regularly read my articles one theme that keeps returning is the role that the main-stream media play is actual deception at times arranged with each other.

Going on a tangent as these articles tend to do, Sky News along with it’s sister station Sky Sports News reported the below yet the BBC have ignored this therefore giving the false impression that the Liverpool vs. Manchester United Premier League game of Sunday 23rd September 2012 had absolutely NO trouble.

Sometimes I wonder why continue keep paying my BBC License Fee…

If you’ve guessed Arcade Fire aren’t totally French Canadian & you’d be correct. The band is the Wu-Tang of Indie Music with 7 Members with 3 driving the artistic direction of the collective these being:

The Butler Brothers & Régine Chassagne.

Chassagne is married to lead singer of the band Win Butler & is most interesting as she has a direct link to being strongly against Fascist Dictatorships due to her immediate families experiences of living in the Haiti controlled by C.I.A Operative – François “Papa Doc” Duvalier.

This then leads to concerns around the manner America is currently heading as both Butler Brothers (Win & William) are America Citizens born.

It’s not a far-out theory that majority or entire Western Entertainment Industry is controlled at Boardroom levels by those whom aren’t fans of equal opportunity for all humanity. Therefore, a potential reason why the following might have occurred:

Gigaom.com – Arcade Fire & Spike Jonze short fim gets geo-blocked

Another interesting fact, was the Band deciding on the respected Berlin Film Festival to be the place to premier the short film where 78yrs earlier, a short Fascist Dictator became supreme leader of Germany & we know the rest.

Have a watch of the Press Conference in which nobody directly including band members addresses the subject of the Film depicting America being under Martial Law:

2011 Berlin Film Festival – Arcade Fire Press Conference

Arcade Fire have recently contributed to the soundtrack to the hit-film ‘The Hunger Games’. The Film being about a future North America under a Fascist Dictatorship.

Who exactly is Spike Jonze?

You might have seen these Motion Pictures Directed by Mr. Jonze:

Being John Malkovich‘.

Adaptation‘.

Where the Wild Things Are‘.

He’s also know to have Directed some rather special Music Video’s such as…

Current Hollywood Royalty connects directly with a Band selling vast Units & Sell-Out Tours but ‘radio silence’ over their project.

Top names in the Entertainment Industry often mingle with those whom are ‘The Elites’ as normal people aren’t allowed in the V.I.P Section.

So, it’s highly possible members of the Arcade Fire have been privy to some worrying information as Grey Goose Vodka does have powerful effects on the human psyche.

This might be October’s article but don’t worry, I’ll be delivering something much more terrifying on Halloween (Wednesday 31st)..!!

Remember to always keep it GeneralJimmy.com

The final word on this article should go to Leader of Arcade Fire – Win Butler from an Interview with Billboard (major league American Entertainment Magazine). Ask yourself does he know something those in ‘The Club’ have possibly planned & / or is giving us the ordinary 99% of humanity a clever warning.

…that 30 years from now, when a computer virus crashed all the computers, and people have to look at DVDs to see what life was like in the early 2000s, there is some record of what we were thinking visually.”
