Responsible Media Literacy

The World is turning, the times they are a’ changing and “the news” is no longer as relevant as it was decades ago. There is no longer TEH news — as if there were something that might qualify as newsworthy … the way it was in previous times: I know it’s true — oh, so… Continue reading Responsible Media Literacy

Supply, Demand, Natural Language & Free Markets — Some Preliminary Thoughts & Ideas

Many if not most — or even all? — (educated) people have probably heard of supply and demand before — and perhaps also that they are the basic building blocks of free markets. Likewise, many may be familiar with the expression “supply creates its own demand” (which is a sort of shorthand for views expressed… Continue reading Supply, Demand, Natural Language & Free Markets — Some Preliminary Thoughts & Ideas

Us OR Them — Whose Job is it to GTFO?

I am more or less clean — I wash my hands regularly, bathe regularly, I stay safe, … whether I do so more or less than the average human, I don’t know. Yet I do go above and beyond what ordinary folks do on a regular basis. Ordinary folks do not normally take measures to… Continue reading Us OR Them — Whose Job is it to GTFO?

Mainstream vs. Anonymous

Breaking News: There are problems with mainstream media! 😯 I DO listen to the “No Agenda” podcast regularly — and have listened to it for a long time (too long to share without feeling somewhat ashamed). Yet, it does feel good to consume John’s & Adam’s version of “media deconstruction” — and they can also… Continue reading Mainstream vs. Anonymous

There (but for the Grace of God) Go I

That’s a quote from a woman going by the (stage) name “Bridget Phetasy” — which she repeats time and again, mostly on podcasts she publishes. I enjoy listening to her opinion. I especially enjoyed an episode she published (together with her husband) on the podcast named “Factory Settings” earlier this month — episode 10, titled… Continue reading There (but for the Grace of God) Go I

Self-Made World

I want to describe a storyline that I notice is used time and again … indeed, so much that it seems as if it were repetitive enough to come across as suspicious … . This is the myth of the “self-made man” (or woman? why not person? probably because it lacks the alliteration 😉 ).… Continue reading Self-Made World

Questions & Answers vs. Conversations

Adam Curry has a very particular pronunciation of the word “conversation” — if you listen to the “No Agenda” podcast, then you may be familiar with it. I wonder what Adam might think about what I intend to write here. I’ve got a million friends Bob Dylan, “I Shall Be Free No. 10” When I… Continue reading Questions & Answers vs. Conversations

Inter-Reliance, Self-Dependence & Responsibilty

I feel I need to revisit this topic. I don’t know when I first visited it (yet you might want to check out the homepage @ Wants.Blog [ https://wants.blog ] ) — maybe the whole idea of revisiting something was introduced to me by F. Scott Fitzgerald — I enjoyed a lot of his stories,… Continue reading Inter-Reliance, Self-Dependence & Responsibilty

My No-Know Freeze-Frame World

This post is yet again quite “media” related. In this case, the focus is on a very nondescript split second (or maybe like 1 or 2 seconds) “in between” scenes from a decades-old movie called “Wayne’s World” (you might want to contrast that title with the somewhat longer title of this post 😉 ). “Wayne’s… Continue reading My No-Know Freeze-Frame World
