The Ochelli Effect – Shots Shots Shots Shots

From Ochelli.com

Mike Swanson is off this week and next, despite the odd behavior in the markets and the need for his insights. We got two hours of frustrated rants from your humble host and his hostages.

As Tuesday Night kicked off Chuck was in a bad mood. The constant coverage and ridiculous treatment of mass shootings in the USA and the ready-made mass distraction of the MSM are in full swing. Are you dumb enough to think video games cause mass shooting events?

Is there Racism in America? How much is Donald Elitist scumbag Trump responsible for White Supremacist violence? Are guns a real issue? Who gets to decide who is, and is not mentally ill? What in the hell is the matter with people? Has everyone lost their minds? Is violence built into the human character?

How many Vulture-like media figures are there? Are Trump supporters the REAL AL CAEDA? Will the rest of the planet forgive the level of stupid the United States has reached? Chuck is angry behind enemy lines. Are you not entertained?

How many walking jokes are there on one DNC debate stage? Violence as a reality along with racism as a thing is never addressed with any honesty and we wonder why they continue to hinder the general population’s progress. The MSM is awful and Conspiracy culture is past the level of toxic every time something bleeds and leads the game of headlines.

Meanwhile, Porkins joined us in the second hour and Chuck’s tirade that he started with Regular Joe in hour 1 continued. Pearse will be back soon with more great radio. Anyone else sick of all the non-sense yet? Anyone making a donation to The Ochelli.com efforts this month is entitled to send a mailing address for some hand-drawn artwork that will be discussed soon.

Are you angry yet?

Porkins Policy Radio episode 178 Emma Redmond on Vox Lux

This week my sister Emma joined me to discuss Brady Corbet’s latest film Vox Lux, which tells the story of a young girl Celeste surviving a school shooting and becoming a pop star. We started by discussing the film itself and it’s interesting narrative structure. We also touched on some of the flaws in the film. We then moved onto the main plot points and themes in the film. Emma and I discussed the role that pop music plays in our lives and how trauma and tragedy connects to it. We touched on 9/11 which plays a role throughout the film. We talked about the emptiness that personifies a lot of pop music, and the toll that takes on Celeste throughout her life. Emma talked about the “character” that a pop star has to play in public and the absence of a private self. Later we discussed the lack of a message in the movie and why this is actually a good thing. We focused on the need for many audience members to be told exactly what to think when watching a film. We touched on the phenomenon of mass shootings which often times lacks a message or meaning. Emma and I also discussed the idea that this film takes place in an alternate reality where Celeste and the school shooting exists, thus altering the course of music history. We ended by breaking down the final reveal of the film.
