It’s like when someone says, ‘How are you?’ Do you say, ‘Well, my head hurts and I’m lonely and depressed and I’m worried about everything and the world is collapsing and full of evil’? Or do you say, ‘I’m fine’?
The Yes Men Fix The World (2009), a very inspiring comedy-satire-documentary, a must watch for everyone.
Gotta love the sarcasm brought by Jacques Servin (aka Andy Bichlbaum) and Igor Vamos (aka Mike Bonanno) to ridicule these capitalists, corporate tools and minions. You’re gonna laugh hard and fall in love with what they did to make the climate-threatening corporations (i.e. Halliburton) look stupid with their Survivaballs. And the last scene.. the thing they did with The New York Times.. it left me in awe and tears, and will remind us all that there is still hope for world peace.
No matter what, intelligence always wins over money. These guys really got the balls. I salute you!
Thank you Amanda for recommending me to watch this!—
We don’t even remember how we start living. What if we were only dreaming?
When I saw the clown scenes from a beautiful yet depressing French animation, L’Illusionniste (2010), I suddenly remembered a story which I read somewhere long time ago:
There was a certain man who always feels sad and depressed. He tried everything to please himself but life just seems against him all the time. One day, he made an appointment to see a psychologist to cope that problem. The day he met the doctor, he told him to go to a famous circus in town and see a legendary funny clown, whose acts and jokes would never disappoint anyone. The man was silent.. and said “Doctor, that clown is me..”
Whenever I listen to them, I’ll always feel such beautiful, nostalgic moments, which in fact, are not (and would never be) parts of my life.
(And then I think I was born in the wrong era, again.)
