    • Philanthropy Clan Update

      All right-- attention members, all of that crock.

      I think that Philanthropy should expand it's operations.

      Later today, Philanthropy will officially commence and begin operations, since we have a full operating staff. I will detail that in my next journal.

      As members, Philanthropy needs your help and support.

      As we expand, Philanthropy will need a site of it's own to post updates. We will also need members to fill the positions of recruiters, to help us recruit new members, and ambassadors to other clans to gain allies and forge alliances.

      Just an update. Things have been going a bit slow, but hopefully if things go as planned, that will change in a few hours.

      Until tonight!

      Click for my "what got you addicted to sci-fi/horror films?" thread

      Just finished beating the shit out of my friend Jason at Halo 2.

      Game Carnage Review:

      Game 1:

      Map: Relic
      Weapons: Map Default
      Kill Limit: 15
      Motion Sensor: On

      Game Score:
      Stormtrooper: 15
      JJ [Jason]: 1

      Game 2

      Map: Headlong
      Weapons: Rockets & Swords
      Kill Limit: 20
      Motion Sensor: Off

      Game Score:
      Stormtrooper [me]: 20
      JJ [Jason]: 11

      Game 3

      And may I remind you, Jason owns an Xbox, and plays Halo regularly. He hasn't lost so bad in the past, which means one thing: I have gotten much, much better. Fucking-A.

      Hey- this is my life. This IS what I do-- videogames. They and movies make up for problems getting sex and women.

      Elite17

      Okay, here is a pretty straightforward question: What got you addicted to sci-fi/horror films?
      The things that converted me to sci-fi were seeing Star Wars, The X-Files, The Matrix Trilogy, and Jonh Carpenter's Escape From New York.

      There was no turning back after that, and I have seen almost everything in the genre.
      As far as horror films go, I would have to say Hitchcock's The Birds or Event Horizon.

      By the way, does anyone remember UFO?

      So, what got you addicted?

      Woot woot! I am Karma lvl. 35!

      Anyway-- today was a pretty good day.

      After sleeping for a long ass time, I watched all 4 and 1/2 hours of the Dune: Special edition director's cut dvd [for the mini-series. I have to tell you-- it's one of the best Sci-Fi series I have seen in a long while, apart from Trek, Stargate, and Babylon 5 [<my fav., by the way]

      After that, my friend Eric, known here as daruku came over. I completely fucking owned his ass in Halo 2.

      Game Stats:
      Game 1
      Slayer
      Map: Headlong
      Weapons: Rockets & swords
      Motion Sensor: Off
      Score Limit: 15

      Score:
      Stormtrooper [me]: 15
      daruku: 1

      Game 2
      Slayer
      Map: Coagulation
      Weapons: Map default
      Motion Sensor: Off
      Score Limit: 15

      Score:
      Stormtrooper [me]: 15
      daruku: 2

      After that, we ate some Bratwurst, and then went to a party, where we ate Pizza, chips, cookies, and drank soft drinks while watching Nosferatu-- the first Vampire movie, directed in 1922. It is a silent movie, with music by Type-0 Negative, and an Intro by David Carradine [who is completely bad ass]

      483-pic.jpg

      Also, I found this on e-bay. I am thinking about buying it, since I am a die-hard, hardcore fan of the series

    • Simulacra and Simulation

      in Forums > Simulacra and Simulation | Follow this topic

      simulacra.jpg

      From the Wikipedia article, Simulacra and Simulation:

      Simulacra and Simulation (Simulacres et Simulation in French), published in 1981, is a philosophical treatise by Jean Baudrillard.

      Simulacra and Simulation is most known for its discussion of images, signs, and how they relate to the present day. Baudrillard claims that our society has replaced all reality and meaning with symbols and signs, and that in fact all that we know as real is actually a simulation of reality. The simulacra that Baudrillard refers to are signs of culture and media that create the reality that we perceive.

      Baudrillard describes a world saturated by imagery, infused with media, sound, and advertising. This simulacra of the real surpasses the real world and thus becomes hyperreal, a world that is more real than real. It presupposes and precedes the real. In this world an apathy and melancholy permeate and begin to erode Nietzsche's feeling of ressentiment.

      A specific analogy that Baudrillard uses is a fable derived from the work of Jorge Luis Borges. In it, a great Empire created a map that was so detailed it was as large as the Empire itself. The actual map grew and decayed as the Empire itself conquered or lost territory. When the Empire crumbled, all that was left was the map. In Baudrillard's rendition, it is the map that we are living in, the simulation of reality, and it is reality that is crumbling away from disuse.

      The Matrix, a popular sci-fi film, makes many connections to Simulacra and Simulation. In fact, the principal character of The Matrix, Neo, can be seen with a copy of Simulacra and Simulation near the beginning of the film. He uses the hollowed-out book as a stash spot for a wad of cash and his 'important' computer files. However, the copy of the book used in the film seems to be inaccurate because the hollowed-out copy Neo has in The Matrix has the chapter "On Nihilism" in the middle, not at the end where it is actually located in the real world. Morpheus also refers to the real world outside of the Matrix as the "desert of the real", a direct reference to Baudrillard's work. In the original script, Morpheus referenced Baudrillard's book specifically. In an interview, however, Baudrillard said that "The Matrix" has nothing to do with his work.

      ^ Image of S&S from The Matrix

      As someone who is currently reading this book, and who is a huge fan of the Matrix Trilogy, I am in awe of how accurately the author describes culture. He "hits the nail on the head", so to speak.

      Baudrillard describes materialistic culture, apocalyptic war, film, and other aspects of the world with a highly tied-in hypothesis of Real and hyperreal through the material.

      The funny thing is, he wrote the book in 1981. Think about how society has progressed, or rather degressed, in 25 years.

      So, discussion is open. Also, feel free to question and discuss the Matrix, and other things that either inspired Baudrillard's work, or were influenced by it.
