it’s not by Spike Lee and blaming the white man – it’s a nooooo sell to the black kids …..

believe me – been said and heard many times – next rioting won’t be in “our neighborhoods” and the fires won’t be burning down our homes and stores …. biggest threat going for almost any SHTF these days ….

If this was Summer of ’67, wasn’t just The D that got lit up. Add Cleveland and Watts (LA) to that list.

I took a college class where the professor said there was a thought in these communities that if you set your own neighborhood on fire, HUD would come in and build you a brand new one. Didn’t happen. Most cities bulldozed the rubble and built parking lots.

If you poor, where you gonna go? These were the days before food stamps, Section 8, payday loans, VA disability, SSI.

Even Medicare didn’t come along ’till ’68.

Wife and I went to see this, I think the directors/producers did a great job trying to present each side of the story. Was not one sided, in my opinion. It did portray some LEO, National guard as bad but certainly not all. Same with the African Americans. The movie used actual news footage and reports too.

Some thoughts that came to mind while watching-

1. Why the heck did these people stay in an area where rioting was happening- nothing God was going to happen- as demonstrated by the movie- don’t want to blame the victims but at the same time treating the situation as a potential life endangering incident and leaving the area verses going to party might have been a better course of action.

2. If rioting breaks out you better have the gas, guns/ammo, food, etc that you need since the governor restrict the sale of many items during the rioting. All stores were targets of looting (some black shop owners where spraying “Soul Brother” on their stores in the hopes that the rioters didn’t target their stores.

3. Even if you don’t participate in the riot you can still get caught up in it regardless of which “side” you are on.

4. I kept thinking is this film going to increase the potential for violence give the current protesting/rioting that is taking place? At some points the movie, in my opinion, sort of provided “hints” to future rioters like “don’t burn your own neighborhood”.

We went on early on Friday afternoon and besides the wife and I there was only one elderly black gentleman watching it. How sad since I think it had a good history lesson of all people.

Definately worth seeing.

Videos, Movies, and TV shows • Most spectating Movie Logos of All Time

August 16, 2017 sarahemi 0

How many movies we may have watched till now, yes we cannot count them in numbers maybe they are in between thousands. Almost 10% of these movies are kept remember in our memories but some of them are always identified by their unique posters and Logos. So here are some of those which have the Best Logo designs you will surely remember.

1. Jurassic Park (Franchise)
Its logo always acts like a nightmare, especially for children. The 90’s kids still can feel the horrible sight of Jurassic park’s logo.

2. Star Wars (Franchise)
Also very famous in games and fashion industry. the star wars are probably the longest movies franchise in the Hollywood with the most number of successful movies in the history.

3. James Bond (Series)
Either you are watching Pierce Bronson, Daniel Craig, or Sean Connery, as James Bond, the historic Logo remains the same in all movies. Why, just because of its impact on the youth and fans of 007.

This is an interesting topic.

I haven’t played computer games in a long while. I was always more of a tabletop board and miniatures gaming person because I favored the social interactions and crafting. Back then most people didn’t have the internet linked gaming that can be social as well. My GF’s kids play a bunch of first person shooters. I watched one of the games being played. Looked pretty good. It was Tom Clancy’s The Division.

In the future though, would prefer to get the kids out to the range. Have to make time for that myself.

I just saw the movie Snatched and while it was a comedy and it was over the top, it did have some content that might appeal to a prepper or survivalist. A mom and daughter go to Ecuador and get kidnapped and go on all sorts of crazy adventures.

Much better gameplay will be Fallout….both look great for survival but I have experience with Fallout…much more through I think for exploring and with post-apocalyptic civilizations you can visit and barter with…mission aspect is really fulfilling…..agree with others here on Fallout…Gathering, crafting, barter, and the combat module keeps you coming back and picks up the pace if you want…..Once you start, good luck stopping…lol….don’t say you weren’t warned…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrX-QT19Ro0

There is also a show on TV called “the Colony”, not Colony. Kind of a prepper reality show. I found it while looking for the show Illini started this thread about.

actually two seasons of The Colony – first was set in an industrial area of LA and centered around a warehouse of a mixed survivor group …. Season Two was set just outside a Louisiana swamp and involved a FEMA type pandemic scenario ….

decent enough to watch if nothing else to do ….

Been seeing commercial for the US version of the series ‘HUNTED’. It will start NEXT MONDAY, JANUARY 22nd. I think I saw the ad on ABC. Anyway, there is about 12 teams of 2. The contestants will try to disappear and evade being captured by experts. I plan to watch the series and pick up some tips. The UK series was very interesting and I learned a few things about staying off the authorities grid.
