I've come up with a pretty good idea for a HUMP! film festival submission that I would want to create. Basically it's a film called Continuity. It will kind of start slow, an average LGBT/Feminist friendly pornography. However, as the film progresses certain continuity errors show up, a scene cuts to a different angle then back and the girl is wearing different clothing during the sex, a cut to another angle then back, suddenly furniture is moved/sheets are a different color, so on and so forth. Then it gets even weirder, extreme close up, cut to wide shot, one of the actors has changed but is wearing the same clothes, as another actor, CUT again, BOOM different gender completely, soon quick cuts are taking place and people are switching, masks and clothes are coming on and off. Languages switching between the people. Absolute Continuity chaos in this porn.
The idea of "going postal" refers to any worker who due to job stress freaks out, and actually refers to a mass murder incident in the Edmond, Oklahoma post office when a relief carrier (fill in postman) cracked up and killed 14 people. This happened in 1986 when Ronnie Raygun was in the process of trying to dismantle most of the federal government, including the post office. Lots of downsizing and long hours, and some decent middle class jobs went bye, bye. And I would argue that most mail people aren't lazy either, just overworked. I guess you can start paying Amazon to fly your wristband to you - maybe it will come with an automatic tightener, so you won't need to expend any effort to make sure its fastened. At least you will avoid having to deal with those irritating underpaid leaches in the post office...
I owe you a beer or something if I meet you at Sasquatch. Not a lot of people are willing to call out the bullshit of Ronald "High Treason" Raygun and how he systemically started the Great Collapse of the American government over 30 years ago.
So following a sporting event, even if it's a team you've followed all your life, doesn't make sense at Sasquatch, only because you don't like sports?
I never said I don't like sports. I don't like watching most sports other than Rugby, Hockey, and the Seahawks. A comparable relation for me would be politics, international affairs, congressional votes, etc. I straight up try to leave it behind at the entrance to Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, etc. An example of this would be in 2012. One of my friends and someone I mentored while a cadet in ROTC, his Kiowa Scout help was shot down and killed in Afghanistan the day before Bonnaroo. I had to leave it at the campground. I didn't want to take the bad vibes with me. I knew his wife, his children, his family, I had worked with him for nearly 4 years. There's just some things you shouldn't take with you when you enter the cave. To me, everything that is not happening right where you are at that moment of time at Sasquatch,Bonnaroo, Coachella, etc., is completely and utterly meaningless and has no power or influence over your life at the moment.
Now imagine watching that team you followed your entire life get crushed that very morning, night, etc. Why would you want that possibility to ruin your fun time when you could be lounging back, staring up at a beautiful morning sky at a beautiful venue, and munching on the biggest corn chip you ever damn saw.
That's my two cents on that. I think it's a decent way to live given the short amount of time we have to live.
