All the animals look so strange. Like the victims of a testing range.
More trains = more prosperity. Jives very well with my Britain growing to resemble the late 1800s idea quite well. I note the dramatic music on the Carrier one seems to be trying to trick me into thinking it's an ad for a new GI Joe movie.
I was really disappointed that they didn't call one of the carriers HMS Dreadnought.
Can't tell from my computer but is the Navy one mostly CGI or is the modern British Navy really that frictionless and shiny?Somewhat tangentially, it made me think of watching 'Kill List'as an antidote.
"Kill List" fans should read this:http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2011/dec/11/carole-myers-satanic-child-abuse?newsfeed=trueReally, really, really, really weird. I read this stuff, and think - is the most inverted possible version of the reality we daily experience the true one?Or, (and I suspect this is what is actually happening), does the unacknowledged extremity of neoliberal capitalism produce extreme but unverifiable pseudo-experiences at its fringes?It's creepy stuff, whatever the answer.....
Remember writing about the case in one of my uni assignments on false memory syndrome. The true anxiety here is that as you learn about eyewitness testimony, recall, and so on, you realise memory as such is something more malleable and ephemeral than society would like to admit - how would people cope if they had to accept many of their remembered experiences weren't actually their own, but the patching together of traces, or wholly fabricated events implanted by someone/thing else. Why cults of roaming Satanic baby eaters so easily slot into the psyche is an interesting question.(on the unreliability of memory, Schacter's 7 sins of memory http://nwkpsych.rutgers.edu/~jose/courses/578_mem_learn/2012/readings/Schacter_1999.pdf , Mark Pendergrast's Victims of Memory, and Loftus and Kethcam's Myth of Repressed Memory)
