BTCwriter: Silk Road 2021 Film - Bitcoin's Dirty Laundry

20 Feb 2021 7 minute read 11 comments Thomas Wolf

Recently, I said I wouldn’t be surprised the next time Bitcoin was mentioned in a major film or TV show; I retract my previous statement. “The state may try to ban our tools, but if we never use them for fear of them being banned, then we have alread...

Indie Production Short, "Slice Of Life", Induces Layered Sci Fi High

19 Feb 2021 1 minute read 0 comments IRUUR1

iruur1 - It is an absolutely terrific spin off, of Blade Runner. It is as if you were looking at a slice of life, out of the culture depicted in that move. An example of what other depraved people do in that future to get by. The story is super simp...

Clint Eastwood Western movies aren't really my favorite genre and I've never heard of this classic until today, but I am glad to have seen it. Clint Eastwood made me feel the pain of the Confederate soldier better than any book or movie I've come ac...

Thirty years of anime. That's how long I can remember watching anime. I don’t even remember the first anime I watched. Some of the earlier shows I remember are Aeon flux, Vampire Hunter D, and Heavy Metal. I remember watching these as a teenager thou...

Ex Machina (2014) - Truth and Doubt As Midpoint

12 Feb 2021 1 minute read 0 comments Lion Suit
