Two Member Calls this weekend:
Call 1 is focused on the Georgia Guidestones.
Call 2 is focused on the film Donnie Darko (2001).
Call 1 begins at 8am KL time:
Note that this is one hour ‘earlier’ than last week for people from certain parts of Australia due to the end of daylight savings time.
Call 2 begins at 6pm KL time:
What Are The Georgia Guidestones?
The wikipedia page gives a decent overview.
What do the inscriptions read?
ShadowTiger suggested this topic and I look forward to seeing which direction(s) the Call goes in.
What is Donnie Darko?
If you haven’t seen this movie, do yourself a favour, and set aside some time to watch it the next chance you get.
I’ve spoken about it before, in a piece from about twelve months ago:
I rewatched the film a couple of nights ago, and it was even more amazing to me this time around than it was last time.
This is a brilliant film and relevant to johnlebon.com is multiple ways.
We’ll be discussing all of this and more on Call 2 this weekend.
Note that there are two versions of this film: the ‘Directors Cut’ is about twenty minutes longer, features several scenes edited out of the first release, and includes overlays of a book which is central to the plotline.
You can watch either version before the Call, both include the same basic story arc and key scenes. Personally I rewatched the Director’s Cut and will be citing scenes and timestamps from this version rather than the original.
What if I can’t make it to Call 1 (or Call 2)?
No problems. If there is enough interest in these topics, we can reverse the order for next week.
That is, make Call 1 next week about Donnie Darko, and Call 2 about the Georgia Guidestones.
The Schedule is completely open beyond this weekend.
Speaking of which, if you are interested in suggesting (and leading) a topic, now is the time to do so 🙂
Otherwise I will fill the Schedule with topics I want to talk about and we can go back to it being ‘The JLB Show (feat. various Members)’.
I have tried to share the spotlight, give other people a chance to use this platform in their own way, and some people have taken up the opportunity, but I completely understand that a lot of people would prefer to simply ‘tag along’ and let me run the whole thing.
No problems for me, I have tonnes of things to say — and with no YouTube channel at the moment, these Calls are one of my few outlets for expressing myself on some of these topics/matters.
Hope to see you this weekend! 🙂
