Time management >

You are chained to things that make you unproductive. Unproductive not only in terms of your responsibilities but also your desires. They are a strain not only on your time but also on your peace of mind.

Unplugging targets a wide number of associated things, freeing up time and considerations to be put toward things which are specifically-desired. Instead of effort being put toward problems, passion is put toward desires.

This action is meant to take the whole day, and be regularly repeated. It is meant to be a defined branch of time management and a fundamental philosophy.

The right way to go about all of this would be to print this off. Better yet, write it all out by hand; make it yours.

Dead Poets Society - (1989 movie) poster

A coming of age story of a class of students learning poetry in an unorthodox way.

While I recommend and like this, it not great.

Something about it makes it feel somehow inelegant or simple, perhaps even predictable. Perhaps it stood out in its era, and it caught me at an impressionable moment for my first viewing, but as I watch it again it doesn't grab me much at all. I think this would be weakly-mandatory for creating a well-rounded movie-learning experience in someone young.

A documentary on, and interviews with, Edward Snowden.

I suppose it has some interesting material, and certainly the topic is great, but as a viewing experience this movie is boring as fuck.

Something something Hungary something mole.

An incredibly slow and boring movie.

A documentary about Robert Crumb.

A lineage of broken genetics is passed on to children, one of whom drew odd things oddly and got famous because normies couldn't or wouldn't do it. He got and stayed famous because he got there first. Everyone fawns over him to be cool.

There's a lot of anti-consumerism, anti-industry and general cultural critique. Unfortunately, the whole thing gets interesting only in the latter third, and the good cultural critique is scattered throughout that.

All things considered, this isn't a great movie, an interesting person or an interesting topic. For people unaware of the reality, this shows the broken side of certain kinds of artist.

Not recommended.

An investigative reporter, most recently working on criminal drug stories, gets a lead that takes him down a rabbit hole few knew existed.

A fair movie at best, which I can only recommend for people of the mindset with interest in the United States' government's involvement in Bad Things.

A feminist's documentary about men's (human) rights.

A refreshing piece of work, with the intellectual morals to actually talk to the men's rights advocates being talked about. The contrast between "the sides" is truly astonishing.
