I thought it prudent to create a compilation of video footage from the 20th Century World Trade Center, in memorial of civilisation and of those who lost their lives.
Click this on screen icon for video list.
This playlist is intended to be an accompaniment to my article, World Trade Center, and therefore in respect of this cause, you will not find any footage here from the new millennium.
You will however find here not only authentic 20th Century video footage of the Twin Towers, but various documentaries including of course, Philippe Petit, the gentleman who famously tightrope walked between the two towers in 1974.
Tall and poetic they stood together, like as a man and woman, a partnership of understanding, a welcoming of collaboration, a marriage of 20th century western civilisation.
That is how I saw them. That is how they will always be remembered in my heart.
I was born in 1978 and am wholeheartedly a 20th century time lord. That is to say I craft my entire livelihood about an atmosphere of past century curiosity and freedom of thought.
I love Gandhi, very much India, I adore incense and Chess, I have more paper and pens than anything remotely black and square. In fact the biggest screen in my flat is only a 7″ DVD player and the other which I am typing on now, likewise.
Aye, you probably won’t find many post millennium movies in my DVD collection. In fact I know you won’t, because I believe civilisation itself died out, on September 11th 2001.
PETs, or Personal Electric Transportation, are a rapidly growing form of small one person vehicles, powered by an electric motor and which generally reach a top speed of anywhere from 10mph up to 30mph, depending on their design.
They are mostly invented and produced overseas in places like Europe and the USA where looser rules and laws grant people the liberty to use them in public spaces, almost in some cases, as you would a regular vehicle.
They are without a shadow of a doubt the answer to our stinking, overcrowded car centric gas chambers, which our fascist British leaders like to call “greener cities”.
What a petrol headed lie.
“Illegal” is actually the only word a British Citizen may employ to describe these divine marvels of engineering.
For in this country, due to numerous legislative factors involving the licensing, classification and insuring of all vehicles, PETs may only be ridden in one place and one place only… your garden.
YllwChlk is proud to present the design for a Cornissian flag, following the recent decision to pursue the promotion of South West independence.
Flag design is always a fascinating subject and I myself have often spent many hours browsing through all the nation flags of the world, amazed and inspired by their seemingly abstract self portraits of cultural identity.
Which is what a flag is, I suppose.
Here then the Flag Of Cornissia attempts to convey the same announcement of cultural identity.
South West independence is not a pipe dream. Far from it.
In fact, whilst not mentioned or discussed in the media to any great detail, it is nevertheless talked about in the towns, the parks and indeed on the streets of this great region.
The region here highlighted on the map, is the entire South West and if you do some research, you will discover that this region like many other devolved regions, such as Scotland and Wales, has its own language, its own culture, is historically Celtic by nature, identifies entirely as a separate people from London and is completely unique in its own sovereignty.
YllwChlk has called it Cornissia because historically, the region of Cornwall was itself a truly sovereign state with its own autonomous infrastructure and so politically, it would be sensible to allow Cornwall administrative domain of the entire South West.
Pronounced “cor-nis-sha”, thus differentiating the Cornish as specifically the people of Cornwall and Cornissians as the greater population of Cornissia, its name sings a beauty like the sun upon the seas, a silhouette of a sail and the crushing waves upon a scone coloured coast, as the enchanting lights of Truro begin to dance upon the dusk brushed sky.
In fact once upon a time, Cornwall was its own country and has itself suffered the many pains of foreign rule. Just like Scotland. Just like Wales. Just like Ireland. Just like…. India… China… erm… well, you get the idea.
Today, the undying Celtic heart of the South West and indeed also of the rest of Britain, is beginning to raise its voice.
Like many of us, my most personally cherished “mug” has been a discovery of a lifetime.
I say this because, regardless of the many drinking vessels I have acquired over the years, each and every one of these has purely been a “step up” from the last, towards a perceived eventuality of finding… my perfect mug.
I don’t know how many of you reading this might relate to this humble phenomena, but in a general sweep of the social rumblings, I would be inclined to regard this as true for many others.
Ten years ago I acquired my grandparents’ French Soup Bowls, which are small as bowls go, but large as coffee mugs… um, go. They have handles and also… they have lids.
I know what you’re thinking… “What, is that?” This my good reader, is known as a FAT BIKE and they are gaining ground very fast. Yes, literally.
It is amazing how few people cycle, merely because they have been conditioned to drive. Yet if you pass them an analogue hand-drill and say, “Drill through that piece of metal”, they will without any effort whatsoever.
Cycling is no different and as my FAT BIKE above will testify, the size of your wheels are irrelevant to the phenomena that is GEARS. In fact there are actually many benefits to commuting on fat tyres and these I will now explain.
I love the Kangaroo. They are special to me, not just because of their beauty, their charm or their charisma, but on a philosophical level. The humble Kangaroo, as I have mentioned in my spiritual works, represents “Creative Evolution”, a pinnacle teaching of my religion, which points to God as the intelligent creator of a world subject in part to the laws of evolution.
It is a topic I will cover in my more personal writings, but in a nutshell, whilst the world is of God’s divine creation, life is also adaptable, evolvable and indeed created to encompass just such traits many speces like the Kangaroo do harbour, through the freely independent laws of science.
However my religion aside, for a) it will only deem this blog quirky and b) it is a lifetime work, so… half a century still to go! Haha.
