Just before I woke up, I had a crazy dream. My friend and I were watching a movie (Probably streaming it on Discord or something. Shh.). The friend's dad reveals that he wrote it, and he becomes increasingly pissed that the filmmakers shortened the title. I argue that the shorter title is snappier and looks good on a marquee. The writer dad mentions a friend of his, with whom he co-wrote one of the Elm Streets. He then goes off on me, grabs an axe, and entertains the idea of cutting off my "right" arm. "That's my left." He reveals his arm to be his left where his right should be. "I know." I make a run for it. He lives in some kind of apartment or condo. I race out into the corridor.  Making my way outside, I find a taxi/Lyft/Uber that's leaving. I chase it so that I can flee to safety. I leap onto the roof. Then I get stuck in a city traffic jam. Then I woke up and wrote down as much as I could remember. This has the potential to be the next horror hit. Haven't thought of a title yet.

Now when the vaccines are being distributed, why are university employees like my daughter and my neighbor being vaccinated first ahead of 65+ with medical issues???

To me, hospital workers (from Janitor to Doc) being first is a no brainer They are forced to be in Covid hotspots and their absence due to illness could end up threatening the well-being of others.

The next level gets trickier - is a teacher more at risk than a grocery store worker?? Are either of them more at risk than a 65 year-old? There should be some rational risk formula that they can develop to answer these questions.

The most problematic thing to me is that the US is distributing to States based simply on population ignoring entirely the wherewithal to distribute the vaccines. That is why only 10% of the 20 million doses are in people's arms.  It's like distrrubing lightbulbs to people based on population and ignoring the fact that some places don't have electricity.

TITLE FIGHT


I came up with two good titles. THE WRITER'S MIND and WRITTEN IN BLOOD. Only one of them has been used before... on several movies, albeit obscure ones.

And for the record, Title Fight is the name of a Sega arcade game.

I worry about my  parents most.

I'm super fat and diabetic and have high blood pressure but I have not really feared getting it myself. It would suck, but I can't live my life in fear. We did start ordering groceries but we still do date night dinner a couple times each week. We've been to see family too but I do try to stay home a week before we have our get-togethers.

I don't plan on taking the vaccine unless they force us to do it.

Three of my film friends here have gotten it. A few people in my extended family have passed away from it. Florida has not really shut down like some places.

I am going to try and lose some weight and take better charge of my health instead of relying on doctors and pills this year.

Must of us still believe in a magic pill, that fix all overnight. I have learned, with my own experience and around me that, small changes go a long way.

Proven to work for me and my family in 2020, as a mi-ra-cle :

- 2 tbsp of coconut oil per day (eat with anything but do not cook). It does not make you gain weight;

How much more we need to see to prove that conventional medicine is BS.

Hello all,

Oh, man. I actually had to Google this thread to find it, being so far buried in some strange memory hole. Anyway, just curious how’s everyone getting along these days? For me, if 2020 was the disease, then the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus’ prescribed remedy of 2021s ‘global political theater of the absurd’ is definitely a welcome cure; I suddenly feel a lot better about, well… everything! I kid you not.

Question: has reality fallen so far down the rabbit hole, have we become so indoctrinated by our current media culture, that all surreal and deceptive concepts of what are and what are not are simply being accepted by the masses as true, without question or deductive reasoning, or…

Have we always been this far down (the rabbit hole), but the veil of deception that kept truth hidden from us for so many years, millennia actually, is now suddenly and rapidly dissolving right before our eyes?

For me, this Alice in Wonderland scene is absolutely brilliant, and truly encapsulates the gentle aspects of ‘Falling Awake’, as opposed to what we would or should envision if the veil of illusion was to suddenly and violently be ripped from our mind’s eye. I think Lewis Carroll was telling us all along; “It’s OK, you’ll feel like you’re falling, but when it’s all over, you’ll feel much, much better than where you were before”.



It’s almost as if a third dimensional (artificial, holographic) matrix or construct was placed over the real organic Earth at some point in the past to enslave humanity, “a prison for your mind”… as Morpheus would say, but now, the key players that had cloaked our one true reality in some dark and archaic magik, a quagmire if you will, have lost control of their propaganda machine, and we can finally see the only power they truly had over humanity all along, was… nothing more than an illusion.

“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”



Yes, I think, I hope, (I pray) 2021 is the year humanity finally awakens to all the ‘strange goings-on’ for lack of better phrase, and whether fate intervenes or not during the ‘falling awake’ process… is still yet to be determined.

Anyway, Like Bernie says: “bundle up folks, it’s snowy and cold, and there’s nowhere to go”.

Just more babble from this neck of the woods is all. Thanks for listening…

I tend to think of it in more simplistic terms.

1. Viruses have been killing mankind since we first crawled out of the caves.

2. Many of them turned into Pandemics.

3. 2020 was the latest one,

4. There will be more in the future.

I don't see this having anything to do with the media, indoctrination, deception, etc. It has to do with a deadly virus.

Sorry, my bad… wrong thread. This is the Plague Journal thread dedicated to the Corona Virus, err… sorry, that was before we were ‘told’ to refer to it as COVID-19… Yes, Mainstream Media channels, of course, want us to think for ourselves, and no one would ever attempt to use these media channels to control or move society in a certain direction of thought.

I meant, of course… the newscast about the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, as seen here:

...and????

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream…

That's all.
