“Tout de suite apr�s, il me raconta son s�jour en 1957 � Cuba o� il avait rencontr� Hemingway ne jurant plus d�sormais que par les anarchistes. Cependant, c’est dans cette maison de San Francisco de Paula que Bill obtint de son h�te de pouvoir voir sa copie de Terre d’Espagne, le film hyperstalinien que celui-ci avait tourn� avec Joris Ivens en 1937. �Malgr� le message, �a tient le coup, m’assura Bill. Et puis, sur la p�riode, que nous reste-t-il?� M’emp�chant de lui parler de Diego Camacho, je l’invitai � m’en dire plus sur l’auteur de Pour qui sonne le glas?

~[at this point two (2) of the Spanish Earth vids were inserted, not the simple playlist with all 6 (six)]~

�Il �tait tr�s hospitalier, tr�s g�n�reux, il payait partout. Et en mer, quand on est sortis p�cher le gros, il tenait bien sa place. Seul probl�me, il voulait toujours �tre le meilleur. Du coup, il tentait le diable. Et apr�s il la ramenait. Mais il avait la classe. Il avait lu une de mes nouvelles et m’en avait parl�. J’ai connu peu d’�crivains, je parle de ceux qui ont d�j� un pied dans la renomm�e, qui se souciaient ainsi de leurs cadets. Vous devriez aller � Cuba. Faut toujours voir l’int�rieur des �crivains!�

Here’s the B0tTranslation from http://www.tranexp.com:2000/Translate/result.shtml:

At once after , he me gossip her living room at 1957 at Cuba where he had meet Hemingway ne jurant anymore from now on as by the anarchists. However , is in that dwelling house about San Francisco about Paul as Billiards achieves about her host about may behold her copy earthen of spaces , him film hyperstalinien as which ci had off with Joris Ivens at 1937. �Malgr� him message , thanksggiving holds him bash m’assura Billiards. And then , about the period , as ourselves remainder t – he? � M’emp�chant about her refer to Diego Comrade , I the invitation at m’en put anymore about the author about For thanksggiving blares him knell?

�Il was greatly hospitable , greatly free , he due all over. And on the sea , when on am out fish him big , he held all right her seat. Alone issue , he voulait always be best. Any bash , he tentacle him devil. And after he her bring back. But he had her class. He had lu a about my news and m’en had talk. I knew little d’�crivains , I talk about which drove already a foot at her fame , thanksggiving herself souciaient like this about their cadets. You will have to fit Cuba.

The Ol’ BabelFish‘s worthy attempt:

Immediately after, he told me his stay in 1957 in Cuba where he had met Hemingway not swearing more from now on but by the anarchists. However, c’ is in this house of San Francisco of Paula that Bill obtained from its host to be able to see his Ground d’ copy; Spain, the film hyperstalinien that this one had turned with Joris Ivens in 1937. ?In spite of the message, that holds the blow, m’ Bill ensured. And then, over the period, which us does it remain?? M’ preventing of him to speak about Diego Camacho, I l’ invited to m’ in saying more on l’ author of For whom rings the knell? ?It was very hospital, very generous, it paid everywhere. And at sea, when one left to fish the large one, it held its place well. Only problem, it wanted to always be the best. Blow, it tried the devil. And after it brought back it. But it had the class. It had read one of my news and m’ in had spoken. J’ knew d’ little; writers, I speak about those which have already a foot in the fame, which was concerned thus with their juniors. You should go to Cuba. Is always necessary to see l’ interior of the writers!

So WTFE.

Godrey Reggio directed, cinematographer and editor was Ron Fricke, Philip Glass did the soundtrack. This is half of the middle third of one of three (1:3) film studies of human experience that are worth watching in entirety. Text at close explains the title of this 1982 masterpiece.

Koyaanisqatsi

ko-yan-nis-qatsi (from the Hopi language) n. 1. crazy life. 2. life in turmoil. 3. life out of balance. 4. life disintegrating. 5. in a state of life that calls for another way of living.

Translation of the Hopi Prophecies Sung in the film:

“If we dig precious things from the land, we will invite disaster.”

“Near the Day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky.”?

“A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky which could burn the land and boil the oceans.”

[Hazzy on the disp.]

In April of 2008 the social necrotic of Intellectual Property Law manifested in illustratingly infelicitous fashion.

A Google-hosted video of “The World According To Monsanto – A Documentary That Americans Won’t Ever See” was discovered; “in the wild”, as it were. The video file was localized by choosing the “Download for Email” option provided by Google. This file was split into 12 segments for the YouTube audience as an educational service, being as the title implied that it was not being carried, broadcast or shown in the USA and the subject material impinges upon all Citizens.

The word “impinge” has a mid 16th century ORIGIN: from Latin impingere ?drive something in or at,? from in- ?into? + pangere ?fix, drive.? The word originally meant [thrust at forcibly] then [come into forcible contact]; hence [encroach on] by mid 1700’s: intrude on, infringe (on), invade, trespass on, obtrude, cut through, interfere with; violate; horn in on.

It is specifically describing the dislocation and disenfranchisement of the average person due to Enclosure of the Commons.

As predicted, the series was blocked at [host] due to copyright violation. An attempt to provide alternate hosting was met with immediate response, expected due to the
transparency of approach. Videos posted were removed within minutes of upload.

If education was the goal in producing the film,
The Film Board of Canada seem to be working against it.

Overtime.

It should be noted that no [userprofile] was harmed in this, the [Host] merely made the offending vids unstreamable. This appears to be a case of copyright interfering with educational endevours, and a fairly painless one at that. It’s understandable for creators to want distributive control of the media they make, but fair use of media from all mediums should be considered a trust of the public, a given grey area where one’s work enters the Commons of Human Knowledge and truly becomes a shared resource. It isn’t about piracy, and it isn’t about publishing or concessionary property.

It is about information, the exchange of which should be encouraged. It is about education, requisite to weigh the issue of a transnational corporate body with a toxic track record owning the Nation’s food supply; owning food, all food, due in no small part to the exploitation of an oxymoronic legal dysfunction known as Intellectual Property.

It is about Enclosure; that abhorition of Human Processes that fences, walls, divides, alienates, separates and denies the Individual the Commons in favor of usurping it for profit and power. That vile, arrogant tool of the Developer Classes that pushes and prods peasants from farm to factory to phone bank, from sharing grazing pasture to sharing mass graves, from open waters to the bellies of company trowlers. Enclosure of the land has been completed.

Enclosure of the Public Trust has nearly been completed, with the death of analogue broadcasting in 2009 being one of the last hedgerows. Think about it: most utility resources are spoken for, fenced away from casual use as needed by individuals and in most cases privatized with State enforcement of trespass.

There is one Commons left. Our Common Mind, our Intellect; which is the dynamic hypernodal expression of our individual contributions to the Shared Folder of Human Knowledge and Experience.
