I just watched:

"Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo"

...And thought it was hilarious, it's basically "spinal tap" but focused on jam bands rather than hair bands.

...the garcia tortilla.

I have amazon fire TV, so I know you can watch it with amazon for free.

It would probably be offensive if it was not so damn funny, because "hippie" type people get a lot of fun poked at them, again, imagine "this is spinal tap" but focused on jam band/hippie/festival culture.

Ha ha ha, in the very last scene when they are playing the festival the guitarist actually looks like jerry, the way he is staring into space with the slightly open mouth and lip movements, great stuff. Jerry lives! Ha ha ha.

On another note, just watched "humano" ( Initial release: October 12, 2013 )

In this documentary man travels to the mountains to find spirituality, he consumes san Pedro with a shaman, he also completes several other shamanic practices. It's a great movie, and there is plenty of great shamanic insight.

I was watching "humano" with friends and all of them said "the shaman says the same things you are always telling us", to me it's a sign that the information is derived from the entheogen, either me and this guy from another part if the planet and from another culture are near identical in our methods of thought, or, more probably, we had the same teacher.

The lessons from the cactus are universal, perhaps some have shamanic personalities and have a higher affinity for receiving and communicating these messages, though I am of the opinion that everybody can learn from these plant teachers equally, we all have the potential to receive the same gnosis. This is why I frequently give away shamanic psychedelics to all those who are interested (who are adults of coarse, and who seem as though they would be responsible ), it's because I know that they can be shown just as I was.

Many years back I experienced a "shamanic crisis", also known as "shamanic initiation", and I have been completely transformed ever since, and all for the better, as was said by Terence McKenna — "The shaman is not merely a sick man, or a madman; he is a sick man who has healed himself" and once you have healed yourself when you see others struggling with problems that you once struggled with you want to reach out to them, to help them. I understand that just because it worked for me does not mean it will work for everybody, Nuevo am also very careful with who I choose to help, I Honolulu offer help to those who I know will get better. I am still of the opinion that any human can experience the transformation which I did, but as they are all unique it may not be achieved through the exact same methods, but it can be achieved.

Quote:

Shamanic abilities are generally brought on by a personal crisis, such as illness or sudden shock. Where this is not naturally forthcoming, initiations designed to produce the effects of such a state are used to bring about re-birth as a shaman. The shaman sees through everything, dies and is reborn, suffers the pangs of the world, and sees into its darkest corners. The near-death of initiation is common to shamans the world over and a metaphor for their experiences. Afterwards, they are never the same; everything has changed for them. They have known total knowledge and, to a degree according to their skills and strengths, have permanent access to it from that moment on.
( -shamanism bible; mathwes )




Quote:

Part of the thing I found with hanging with shamans in various places and times is that once you get past the language barrier, what shamans are are simply curious people. Intellectuals of a certain type. In Australian aboriginal slang, a shaman is called a “clever fellow”. If someone says “I’m a clever fellow”, they mean, you know, I’m a shaman. Well, that’s all it is – it’s somebody who pays attention to how things actually work, and sort of transcends the culture by that means. It’s a weird paradox. It’s that the shamans, who are the keepers of the cultural values, are also necessarily the keepers of the secrets of the theatrics of the cultural values, and so they live their lives in the light of the knowledge that it all rests on showbiz. You know, everybody else is a true believer, but these are the image-makers, the people who actually pull the strings and control the evolution of the mythologies. And in a way, it’s a situation of alienation. -Terence McKenna




Quote:

Even in traditional societies, the shaman is central to the social functioning, and the health, and so forth – but is never allowed to be physically central. There is a leader, a head man or something; the shaman lives off at the edge of the village, sometimes off in the woods; he is approached with fear and trembling; he is loathed and respected, and feared and loved, because it is understood that he represents a dimension that nevertheless must be tolerated, because it is the channel through which knowledge, and healing, and higher values, come. -terence mckenna

...

the shaman is socially marginal, politically marginal, lives at the edge of the village, and so forth and so on, and is feared by the people, because dealings with the shaman are always dealings about life and death. But then the shaman comes forward in this critical role, as go-between, as mediator, between the cultural mind and the real world, which is this potent set of forces and planetary cycles and meteorological events and diseases and, you know, fate; and the shaman mediates. In many languages, the word for shaman means “go-between”. So the cost of this, or the price of this, for the shaman himself, or herself, is a kind of alienation from the cultural values, and a kind of understanding that it’s a game that’s kept in play. -terence mckenna




Those who know me understand why I chose those excerpts, and Will agree that it's fitting, whether I like it or not it is my karma to play this role.

Any way, sorry for getting off track, I am adding this film to my list.

·Humano (2013; Director: Alan Stivelman )

Just watched "dirty wars", interesting stuff.

Also watched "Zeitgeist: The Movie", well, I watched most of it, but the whole time I kept thinking "shouldn't all this stuff be obvious?" Most people wouldn't need this movie to figure any of this stuff out. I'm not saying everything was accurate either, but even the things which were inaccurate or conspiracy theory type material were still obvious ideas, I mean anybody who put thought into the situation probably would have had similar thoughts, even if it was only a consideration of possibilities which was then dismissed. The ideas are not necessarily bad, but the movie was not to my taste at all...

One thing that these movies brought to my mind for one reason or another: does anybody think it's strange that they dumped bin laden's body in the ocean? If anybody in the future ever wanted to confirm that the body was in fact bin laden they would not be able as it was thrown in the ocean. it's not something I generally think about, but that "dirty wars" documentary outlined the JSOC ( The Joint Special Operations Command ), and the controversy related to their actions, at one point the Osama raid was outlined, simultaneously the strangeness of the conclusion to that situation sunk in, I'm not saying there is a conspiracy theory there (though I'm sure it could make a good one, if it has not already) I was just thinking "how strange".

Any way, I will add "dirty wars" to my movies list. (Not really wanting to go into much detail, it's not really subject matter which I would normally watch, but it does offer a glimpse into parts of war which one would generally never know about otherwise.

Also watched "drone" a 2014 documentary regarding drone warfare, again, not my typical subject matter as far as film goes, but this was actually a decent film outlining modern day drone warfare and it's implications and consequences.
