Lost in a Paradise: {WWII Memories} Vintage Vernacular from Another Earth


This is a short clip from Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line” which never ceases to inspire and engage the mind and soul with its thoughtful narration and invigorating visuals that take the viewer through the complex voyage of a soldier to war hidden by the beauty of “paradise“. . .

It really must have been something to find yourself in a strange new world, another Earth far away from the hometown you left months before. You might never want to leave. You might hope to be left on a deserted island for the rest of your days; left alone by the complications of society.

Malick does a great job at creating this world, and you can get an even cooler glimpse into this world by digging into the world of vintage vernacular.

Be with me now.

Jay-Z and Kanye West Ft. Frank Ocean “No Church in the Wild”

You will definitely not regret checking out this video. It’s bold, brash, and most certainly bad-ASS. Hell, we’re not even sure if there’s ever been a more visually sumptuous way of depicting hardcore protest or rebellion. An extremely artful take on the fiery emotions bellying deep in the core of humanity from Jay Z, Kanye West, and featuring Frank Ocean. Too long has it gone on? You know what I mean…

The film was directed by famed director Romain Gavras, who helmed M.I.A.’s latest extravagantly rebel-chic vid “Bad Girls”. Gavras brings all his rebel flare and more with this vid featuring some impressive organized madness and chaos. Laser beams, fireworks, smoke, statues,and scarves – what more could you need ?

There is a moment where they show an ELEPHANT in the crowd. If you are wondering why it has appeared, perhaps we should remember that all over the world change has erupted. Regimes have fought and fallen. New lives are beginning. More often than not, these drastic changes are little addressed. So perhaps the mystery of the elephant, is just that – the elephant in the room that nobody seems to want to talk about.

This is a perfect combination of passion, art, beauty, and above-all knowledge of the highest degree. Shaky, and unstable like a uranium bomb, but perhaps that is the wicked truth of the human soul. It takes very little to ignite.
