Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016)


"Legendary master filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams) examines the past, present and constantly evolving future of the Internet in Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Working with NETSCOUT, a world leader in-real time service assurance and cybersecurity, which came aboard as a producer and led him into a new world, Herzog conducted original interviews with cyberspace pioneers and prophets such as PayPal and Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, Internet protocol inventor Bob Kahn, and famed hacker Kevin Mitnick.


These provocative conversations reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships. In the words of executive producer Jim McNiel, “It’s a journey even Werner, with his immense imagination and inquisitive mind, didn’t expect. Unless you have lived in the technology space, you don’t yet fully appreciate what dwells there.” Herzog adds: “It is one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing."

The Hell Of Not Being Able to Leave the Internet, As Captured By Werner Herzog


"As he set out to make his new documentary about the internet, Lo and Behold: Reveries of a Connected World (born out of, of all internet-y things, a sponsored web content deal), Werner Herzog considered traveling to China to document one of the country's most famous treatment centers for internet addicts—"a real toughest-of-tough boot camp." But he decided against it, in part because subtitles would have gotten in the way, and, as he told TechCrunch, he wanted to "stay more within our culture, and within our language." But it's a near universal culture and language, the internet, as evidenced by the residents at a treatment center in the west, who describe their former lives in thrall to the screen.


Herzog recounts stories like that of the South Korean couple who were so lost in a video game that their baby died. The internet security and assurance firm behind the film, NetScout, was hands off, Herzog says, with the exception of one part, in which someone recounts some horrifying comments by trolls. Herzog agreed it should go.



There's a lot more that didn't make the cut, including all the footage shot for the project's original manifestation, a web series of talking heads, but Herzog is, unlike most of us internet addicts, a seeming master of focus and slayer of distractions. That doesn't mean he won't get lost down a rabbit hole, or that he doesn't like a good tangent (and there are some good ones in the movie).


But part of the art of his filmmaking and his editor Joe Bini's editing, is knowing how and when to dig deep, and how and when to pull back. In the scene with the troll comments, Herzog politely asks a family—a modern image of suburbia married with Grant Wood gothic—how their daughter's car crash scene photos became a global meme, and made them victims in a campaign of lulz-fuelled harassment. “I have always believed that the internet is a manifestation of the Antichrist,” the girl’s mother says, without hesitation.

We're looking at something weird, and complicated, and sometimes dark, and it's hard to look away."

Sabaton ‎- Last Dying Breath (Serbia,1914)


Čuveni švedski power-metal bend na svom novom albumu opevao heroizam i junaštvo najčuvenijeg naroda Balkana...

Warm the gun, the kaiser has come
Day or night, the shells keep falling
Overrun, but never undone
Street to street, denying defeat
Soldiers of the Serbian army
Keep your heads held high

Overrun, you follow by one
For Belgrade and the Fatherland
Soldiers, heroes, die for your land
Your lives are gone
Erased by your command

Until your last dying breath!
Until your last dying breath!
Overrun, you are under the gun
Day and night, the shells kept falling
Sound the drum, the Great War has come

Show no fear, the ending is near
The final chance to face the fire
Fall in one by one
Major calls, the white city falls
Belgrade streets are stained by blood

Soldiers, heroes die for your land
Your lives are gone
Erased by your command
Until your last dying breath!
Erased

Your lives are erased
Forward to glory, for king and the country
(Until your last dying breath!)
Defend the honor of Belgrade(x3)
Forward to glory to face your fears at last!

Još jedno sumiranje života


Jbga, došlo i to zadnje vreme da se baci pogled unazad i malo sumira život, dakle šta smo planirali a šta smo uradili za ovih 39 godina i naravno dal' smo u principu zadovoljni ili je sve bio veeeliki fail?

Krenimo redom:
1984-1992: Završio osnovnu školu jer bila obavezna jbga.

1989-1993: Bio član vidikovačkog odreda izviđača "RVČ" dok nisam među prvima skontao da nam kolovođa i lik na koga smo se ugledali ladno pedofil.

1993-1999: Sviro gitaru i bass u par bendova ali preko kurca jer me muzika u tom smislu nikad nije puno zanimala, no radije sve ono što se dešavalo okolo tih koncerata i sranja.

1992-1996: Završio IV beogradsku gimnaziju takođe preko kurca, kontao vajda da tako treba.

1996-1999: Upisao bilo koji (poljoprivredni i hemijski) fax jer to kao bilo logično posle gimnazije, ali u principu najviše zbog eskivaže odsluživanja nekakvog duga državi u vidu mrtvog vojnog roka.

1996-1998: Bio aktivan u borbi za ukidanje vojne obaveze i prigovor savesti jer nisam hteo da budem ničiji rob godinu dana a posebno ne Miloševićev i Mirin, a i brate mrzim vojsku i policiju.

1999-2006: Hteo budem navijač-huligan ali jako neuspešno jer sam u startu omašio klub na koji treba da se ide, mada je tome dosta kumovala i zloupotreba lekova tako da se ja tu nisam puno pitao.

1996-2006.: Zlorabio trodon i sedative. Posledice 5 epi-napada i totalan životni haos, iz koga se izgleda još nisam povratio.

2002-2003: Vodio emisiju "Bahato u startu" na SKC radiju.

2003-2004: Plaćao sve svoje grehe, i one koje jesam i one koje nisam počinio.

2007: Počinje moja spisateljska faza koja je trajala do tamo 2013. i to je najplodniji period mog života ako to tako može da se nazove uopšte.

2008-2016: Pokrećem blog koji me vraća u žižu i donosi mi hajlajt moje patetične karijere. Pogađate, radi se o knjizi koju su mi drugari izdali 2011. jer su se sažalili tj. nije im bilo pravo da jedan klinac-dete poput Rastka Poceste ima izdatu knjigu a ja mator konj jok.

2011-2012: Najveselije godine mog života, mnogo sam ljudi upozno, dosta sela i gradova obišao, sa krdo ljudi se dopisivao i ostao u kontaktu, pa čak i karao te grupi ribe koje se ko fol lože na pisce. Znači full fulova.

2013: Več počinje da me hvata smor i beznađe, ljudi me cimaju jer kao očekuju da nastavim da pišem, da izdam još koju knjigu a ne kapiraju da je to skoro pa nemoguća misija, jer ja fikciju-prozu zaista ne znam da pišem a danas se isključivo to traži i izdaje. Dakle takav uslov postavljaju ove jače izdavačke kuće, jer za ove manje je zaista besmisleno izdavati bilo šta, jer samo najebeš u tom procesu, pa na kraju budeš čak i u debelom minusu iako je ta knjiga trebala da ti navodno donese bar minimalni priliv novca, da imaš bar za pivo i taj rad.

A da ne pričam o prodaji i promocijama knjiga, znači ako ne izdate sa mejdžor kuću jedino vam preostaje da sve to sami radite, skroz solo, a ja kad sam hteo budem pisac ja sam valjda hteo da pišem pobogu a ne da se bavim i prodajom i marketingom i organizacijom, znači da se cimam maksimalno a na kraju ne dobijem al' bukvalno ništa osim tog fidbeka čitalaca koji najviše vole da vas potapšu po ramenu i kažu - bravo care, ma ti si genije. Mada ko nije u toj priči taj realno i ne može da ima realnu ideju kakvo je to zlo sa nezavisnim izdavaštvom, jer svi zamišljamo pisca čiji je poso samo da preda tekst i onda mu izdavač sređuje sve ostalo, od gostovanja na radiju i promocija, do distribucije po celoj ex-yu i svega što ide uz taj rad, a para samo kaplje li kaplje lagano na račun. Nažalost to je samo takva iluzija, i takav tretman dobijaju samo mainstream pisci poput npr. Vidojkovića i...i...uh bre, pa ja samo za Vidojkovića znam od tih pisaca, WTF? :o

2014-2016: Već počinjem lagano da sumiram utiske, da razmišljam dal se vredi cimati i dalje il' je ipak bolje samo isključiti se iz te smor igre na dugme shutdown ili reset. Jbga, stiže leto 40, godina mi pun kurac, došlo vreme da se možda zatvara tezga jbga, da se da prostora mlađima, boljima, jer jbga ali ja doista nisam neki fan ovog mog života, a ni života uopšte, a vala nisam ni u fazonu da ga kao sad menjam iz korena, tako da je možda bolje da to nekako dal' pauziram il' ukinem, još nisam skroz na čisto. Bilo bi lepo kad bi se pojavio neki smisao vredan življenja, ali za sada ga još nema, a ja baš i nisam u tripu da ga sam tražim, jbga ja sam naviko sve na tacnu i libo me ckura, kuiš? :)

Srbija 1 vs Srbija 2 @ OI! Rio 2016


Srbi 2 sinoć izgubiše od Srba 1. Ma čudnog li mi čuda...a vi'š opet mi je tužno i doista šokantno da neki taj poraz u Beogradu slave još od sinoć kad su bili pjani, a ko fol valjalo bi se na pos'o gistro mi ga šatro. U cilju smirivanja stasti, pomirenja i budućeg suživota naše sitne đece, postavljam ovu predivnu ariju u kojoj je skroz plastično opisana ta praiskonska neizmerna ljubav između Srba 1 i Hrv...ups, greška jbga, dakle LJUBAV između Srba 1 i Srba 2. LOVE IS IN THE AIR. :)
