I call it the "wind-swept trendal on a bike" look:

Not too bad! Much better now that I'm home from work and packing a bowl :bong: :grin:

I think you'll enjoy the flicks, man! I just watched NAQOYQATSI again last night!

Let me know which one is your favorite, after you've seen all three!

I definitely will. I love Philip Glass so much and I've had the soundtracks for a long time, can't wait to see the visuals.

Probably my favorite scene in the series is the final scene in Koyaanisqatsi. I don't know what the name of the music he set the scene to, but it is PERFECT for the imagery. Just the same sad riff played over as the wreckage from a failed rocket launch slowly falls into the ocean.

But I'll let you derive your own meaning from it all :wink:

:smile:  What's the series - Life as Nature, life as Technology, Life as War?  or did I put them in the wrong order? War, then technology?

It was made in the order:

Koyaanisqatsi -> Powaqqatsi -> Naqoyqatsi

The actual names translate roughly to:

"Life out of Balance", "Life in Transformation", and "Life as War"

I guess the first two do have to do with nature vs. technology.

Koyaanisqatsi (life out of balance) appears to be mostly about the Western world and its life-support system of technology.

Powaqqatsi (life in transformation) is all about the third-world, natives, and life as it used to be for humans before we built this technological life-support network around us.

Naqoyqatsi definitely has the most surreal imagery in the series, and is quite a bit different from the previous two. I think it's supposed to illustrate the transition from "nature" to "technology".

I haven't tried tripping to them yet, though I can see them being quite depressing for a trip if you don't keep the right state of mind...there's no dialogue at all to pay attention to, just a series of images and videos put to a soundtrack. Some of the imagery is fairly blatant in its expression of the evils of technology and the modern world.

They're good "thinking" films, and certainly good when stoned on a little pot :wink:

Nothing special, it's a Schwinn 240-FSA.

Just got it a few weeks ago. I wanted to start riding to work instead of taking the bus every day :smirk:

Sounds like a nice bike man.

I was blown out of the water by Baraka, and ever since then have wanted to see those three films
