This song is great and really captures the different forms that psychotic people take. The first time listening to it, you may not dig Tech N9ne’s opening part, but listen to the entire song, and then you’ll want to listen to it about 10 more time.
And just something I think I should point out: If you’re asking yourself or anyone else if you’re psychotic, then you’re most probably psychotic.
I saw this picture a while back and then saw it posted all over the web, so I decided to wait on posting it since I didn’t want to seem like a follower of the mainstream. I promise, I’m a total hipster. I had to wait ‘till it was out of style and old to post it.
Looking at these Lego figures, the whole minimalist idea comes out and shows how our brain can actually take the smallest details and connect them in a way to recognize something familiar. Can you recognize these figures? For the answers to a few, check the tags in this post.
The first Movie Of The Week is Limitless, based off of the book The Dark Fields. The movie was released in March of 2011, but it wasn’t until a few months later that I actually saw the movie in a discount theater. I was not sure what to expect… The quality of the theater can sometimes ruin a good movie for me, but this movie was just way to good to be affected. I really had little interest before seeing the movie, but because the discount theater was so cheap, if I wouldn’t have liked the movie, I would not have lost much.
I was quickly captured by the art direction and movie magic, but I was hooked on the very interesting plot of the movie. If you’ve yet to see the trailer, the movie is about Eddie, a writer who just lost his source of income, his girlfriend, and long ago lost all self-respect. To express this, the movie always showed him in a dark and gritty light… Until he got a hold of NZT from a long-lost friend. NZT is a nootropic that allows the taker to have complete control over their mind. Of course, it’s mentioned that humans can only use 20% of our brains, but that’s simply a myth.
With the new-found drug, he is able to be himself, only a hundred times more efficient. He could learn French in a day if he wanted. He could play the stock markets and become wealthy. He could simply recall anything in his life- He could use bits and pieces of conversations, information from flipping through channels, or even pages of books he quickly flipped through, to make a solid piece of information. He could learn something by simply being exposed to it. With the NZT tablets, his possibilities were limitless.
However, there is a downside to this drug: If you stop using it, you will die. This serves as the main plot of the movie (though there is a side-plot) since NZT is no longer able to be created. The only guy who Eddie knew of that could supply him with more NZT to keep his life going was murdered.
If you’re interested in a good artsy-styled movie, check this one out. If you’re interested in an interesting take on the brain and our thought, check this one out. If you’re interested in some great action movies, check this one out. I think you get the point. This movie is simply great, but it was way too low under the radar and is not as well known as it deserves to be.
