Finders Keepers - A Documentary






Finders keepers is a terrific little documentary, set in the southern parts of the United States. It's the kind of film that Hollywood would ordinarily cast Billy Bob Thornton in, and which he excels at.

Instead of Hollywood, it's a grounded documentary about the influence of the media on very normal people. Well, I say ordinary people but these characters are the kind of people who are simple but also very complex.

It would be easy to critique these homely people and the effect that a concentrated media presence had upon them. However, it was the appearance on a TV show that lead to one of the protagonists finally seeking help for his alcohol and drug addictions.

It's also a documentary about ownership and possession, and how in some respects we don't own things, because its things that end up owning us. In the end everything works out for the better, though not without many tears, pain and heartbreak. 

The greatest learning from this documentary is that sometimes ill intentioned people can be a catalyst for our own growth and this is a learning and mindset we should carry with us each day.

There is a loser in this movie, but only because he doesn't recognise the lesson delivered to him for what it is.

China & Hong Kong



Not much coverage of Gilets Jaunes protests reaching 42 weeks. 

What is in it for The Guardian to publish Hong Kong demos?

My Blog Statistics Go Bananas For A Few Days



Punk Planning used to receive about 40,000 hits a month before Google's search engine buried any researchers and writers sharing information the corporate (Fake News) media are unable to. 

I've continued updating Punk Planning, as I still get mentions and links on other larger (alternative media) sites, and I'm happy with a few thousand hits each month from people who do deep dives on search engines.

For some reason it recently picked up massively again for about five days before returning to normal. I've no idea why, but I thought it might be worth a post and tagging in statistics, as I've been booted off Facebook for publishing the Israeli artist Natalie Cohen Vaxberg's art.


It's interesting isn't it?

Every Western icon from Shakespeare to Mermaids can (quite rightly) be portrayed by any other culture/skin-colour than Caucasian, but when it comes to Israeli or Jewish icons, they are sacrosanct. 

It's almost as if hatred of white people is an issue for some very powerful people.


Mass produced ballpoint pens were invented after the alleged Holocaust.

History is written by the victors, and as much of my research documents, the allies did not win WWII. 






Update: I think something is teasing me. 


Update: Google Analytics says I'm talking out of my arse.
