Welcome back to Monday’s News on the March – ‘The week that was in my digital world’.

Manson must have had a hell of a rabbit’s foot or someone or some organization was looking out for him. If any of us would get caught with an underage girl, stolen cars, and narcotics… a trip to jail would be in our immediate future…even in the 1960s…much less being on parole at the time.
While on the subject of underage sex controversies..
Eric has made noise about Epstein being a “construct”. My sense is that he means that Epstein, as a financier, was “created” by some intelligence agency (domestic or foreign). Epstein had no degree, was a high school math teacher, but suddenly ended up a financial guru through means that are not clear to anyone. No one seems to know where his money came from.

The above review of Tarantino’s latest flick is uncannily reflective of my thoughts regarding the movie.
Where once he used his influences to build upon a story uniquely his own, now Tarantino is adrift in that sea, letting the tides of nostalgia take him away instead of steering the boat himself. That’s not to say that Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood isn’t a good movie; it is. But it’s a comfortable movie, and from a director that used to thrive on that dangerous, unpredictable nature of storytelling, it’s a bit surprising.

Blend 1987, the Pakistani culture, scratched cassette tapes of Bruce Springsteen, and the nowhere town of Luton, England, and you get the best feel-good movie of the year. Kind of like Beatles-loving Yesterday, Blinded by the Light’s Bruce Springsteen-loving shuns cynicism and reminds us that good stories and good music do occur, and the big screen is the most effective filter.
WordPress article from Mike Smith at Self Aware Patterns:
If we manage to wipe ourselves out in the next century or so (by climate destruction, nuclear war, or some other means), or even in the next few millenia, virtually all evidence of human civilization would be gone in a few tens of millions of years due to the earth’s constant geological erosion, tectonic upheaval, and overall churn. A geologist one hundred million years from now might be hard pressed to identify that any civilization in our time had actually existed.
Where Humanity’s future lies leads us neatly into this confounding lecture:
You tube video – A tough talk with Brett Einstein at Bard College:
We have discovered the means by which to steal from the future in order to thrive in the present. Self-destruction would be inevitable but for another evolutionary gift, the ability to describe alternative futures and to choose amongst them. This talk will confront the tension between these two capacities and, in order to sketch the path through our looming bottleneck.
