    Todd Phillips' first film was a documentary about GG Allin.

    The Crow was a lot like The Joker and Brandon Lee infamously died on set.

    haven't checked the previous links yet but it reminds me of "clown world"

    The phrase “clown world” and accompanying emojis unify far-right social media users in their exasperation over an imagined state of collapse in the Western hemisphere that they largely blame on immigrants and minority groups. The force driving “Honkler” across the far-right is the same bleak worldview that led white nationalists to embrace Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang. In their minds, if there is nothing that they can do to stop the supposed “great replacement” of white people in their “homelands” and no politicians who care enough about their cause to implement real policies that favor their agenda, they may as well accept the outcome and wrench whatever they can out of the system, like Yang’s promise of $1,000 per month universal basic income. This mentality is often referred to as “black pilling.”

    Have you read The Killing Joke? It's horrible. Good ending though.

    Fight Club always reminded me of Ballard in its thesis that when things are boring then a shake-up, even one that involves getting your head kicked in, will be an improvement. Anyway, this Joker film is getting intriguing reviews everywhere, might have to make it the first of these "superhero" things I've forked out for in forever. I'm guessing it's basically his own film putting on a joker mask to get made - he said he's chucked out the canon backstory right?

    It looks as though it's at least partly based on The Killing Joke as he appears to be a failing comedian.

    rock music died in the early 90's. white people stopped being able to be black in the last 10 years.

    now you either have hipsters who don't produce any culture (they only consume it) and ed sheeran which is really embarrassing.

    that's why we now have trump and brexit
    clowns were a recurring motif during white america’s last cultural hoorah of the 90’s:

    the insane clown posse, slipknot had a clown in it, when i googled it there are more white clown rappers and korn had a song called ‘clown’.

    thus in the millennial subconscious clowns are intrinsically tied to suburban, socially alienated white people.

    Re. your Secret Sun link Luka, I listened to this interview a while back which I found genuinely a bit scary.

    He seems to have hit the point when all the synchroncities start answering back: [url]https://runesoup.com/2017/09/talking-conspiracy-with-greg-carlwood/[/u

    I'm hyped for this film. The trailer looks amazing.
