Trevor Paglen talk 8PM @ the Machine Project L.A.

Secret Black-ops Iron-ons, and the Wrath of KHAN! this weekend at Machine

[Update 11/1/15 Trevor Paglen at Artsy.]

On  Friday, May 23rd at 8pm, geographer and artist  Trevor Paglen  will be giving a talk on the network of hidden budgets, state secrets, covert military bases, and disappeared people that military and intelligence insiders call the “black world.” Suprisingly, these “black sites” and non-existent military installations have also given rise to an incredible catalog of black-ops iron-on membership patches that have to be seen to be believed. Trevor recently compiled these patches into a book called  I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have To Be Destroyed By Me, which can be seen (and may be for sale?) at the event.  1200 D North Alvarado StreetLos Angeles, CA 90026213-483-8761

Robert Zubrin calls for challenging OPEC looting!

Mind Blowing interview with Robert Zubrin on CoastToCoastAm with George Noorey….really worth buying a copy of the audio! Zubrin points out that the move of Oil prices from $10 to $120 per barrel of oil is 1200% ! , Dudes! This is a Bush/Cheney/Republican TAX HIKE! Duh! This is the third person in the media to mention that they thought that people were now trying to break up the USA. Like was done to Yugoslavia and the USSR.

Next, author Robert Zubrin warned that the OPEC cartel wants to crash the American economy and then “buy out the wreckage.” He argued for a flex fuel mandate (so that cars will run on both gasoline and alcohol) and said that increased ethanol production is not related to food shortages. 500 million acres of US farmland are not being utilized, and we have tremendous capacity to expand production, he commented.

The Guy Debord that is best known is the one who is the author of The Society of the Spectacle, but in many ways it is not quite a representative text. Lately there has also been a revival of Debord the film maker, but here I want to think about Debord is a slightly different light. So I will discuss not so much his writing or his films, and still less his biography, but a game. Beside being a writer, a film maker, an editor, and a first rate professional of no profession, he was also, of all things, a game designer.
