Darko Guidestones

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:

Georgia Guidestones

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:

Donnie Darko

What Are The Georgia Guidestones?

Twice the size of Stonehenge.

The wikipedia page gives a decent overview.

What do the inscriptions read?

Good or evil?

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 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 ūüôā

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! ūüôā
