Went and watched Avatar in 3D on 22nd, and was so impressed that I needed another fix in 2D on the 23rd. For all detractors who want the RDA's ex-Marine mercenaries and the tribal inhabitants of Pandora to spurt out complex, pseudo-philosophical dialogues, please watch the movie for what it is, and enjoy the experience. James Cameron has created a masterpiece with such depth (if you're willing to "see"), that I'm finding it terribly difficult to shrug off the messages this movie contained. From a spiritual viewpoint, I'm especially fascinated by Zahelu - what a great concept - the "bond" between all living things. Also, the phrase "I see you" - much like the true meaning of "Namaste", which I was once told by a White South African convert to Hinduism is about greeting people's inner spiritual goodness. And finally, how every living thing was connected - a network of networks, sans the en masse silicon micro-chipping of all things living and dead.
Also, I've decided to rename my latest dub techno/minimalist release under the Cow Tse Tung Sound System nom de plume, using our favorite VSTi, the Cakewalk Z3TA to "Zahelu 2154" instead of the work-in-progress name of "Househunter" (I started writing this track in 2007 whilst hunting for my first home, but put it the track on the backburner, because I couldn't get the right sound from whatever VSTi I was using then). Reminds me of Panopticon and early 90s Leftfield.
Zahelu, make the bond!
