Copyright law – everything to do with free speech, nothing to do with protecting art and artists. Its the monetization of speech and ideas. Also this time: Licks Nature Burgers, Kim Dotcom and Megaupload, Sam Ting, Ian Martin. This one came out on Tuesday- This is still a weekend show if you’re into really big weekends. Nothing but problems getting this one to render…Also featuring some errors i can’t be bother to go back and fix including a misplaced bit about GMOs and improper use of the word: “Through” for “Threw”…

The Remi Review Episode 3

May 21, 2012

Longest episode yet, a whole half hour! -if you can handle that much! 12hrs to do first render. 3 hours to export, 2 hours to upload, 2 hours for youtube to process it…This one had my mactop almost smoking, with need for several cool downs.

Left-Right and the Up-Down Spectrums

May 3, 2011


Look at society like an X and Y grid. There is a struggle between left and right, but also a struggle between those who have power and those who do not. This vertical polarization exists within each and every group of human beings.

Those with power and those without power will always struggle, its human nature. (more…)

God? . . . its about 50/50

The Primacy of Physics

Remi On Liberty

June 1, 2009


Should all people just be able to do whatever they like or should we all be following some set of rules? Without rules we can’t have any real ownership and we can’t enforce that people don’t hurt each other. But rules are rules; as soon as we make any we are taking away liberty. Real freedom is thereby only possible if people are perfectly suited to living amongst one another law free. (more…)

Stem Cell Research

March 6, 2009



So now they can create stem cells from human skin cells eliminating the controversial use of embryos. Sure, sure, i suppose it is still controversial to play god and design human body parts. Embryos were a real pain in the ass to acquire, now they can just use an ass. Oooh, or here’s a tip on where to obtain the new resource- cosmetic surgery clinics. Some wealthy socialites extra face skin might actually do some good for someone. >

Would you drown in a pool full of Jello?

February 17, 2009



When i was a kid i often imagined the amazing things i would do with the oodles of money made from working a real job. One thrill i envisioned was filling my swimming pool with Jello and going for a dip. Sounds like fun, but i’m fairly certain i would wind up dead. (more…)
