Below is a scene from COSY COOL. Here's a review from an anonymous fan:

'Cosy Cool' is one of the most obscure movies to be released in Australia. It's a low budget biker movie inspired by 'Easy Rider'. When I say low budget I mean LOW BUDGET - it makes 'Stone' look like 'Spartacus'!

Unlike 'Stone' this movie isn't about biker clubs (though the Comancheros do appear towards the end). The two protagonists, Cosy Cool and Gracious Grytt, are disenfranchised "space cadets" (their description) who don't fit in with either the biker scene or the straight world. Cosy packs in his job pumping gas, reunites with his old mate Grytt, and the pair hit the road heading for a car/bike show. After they win some prize money there they decide to continue on in search of kicks. Along the way they run across bigoted country folk, "friendly" girls, and other freaks. What they don't realise is that some sinister rednecks are keeping track of them, and are planning on ruining their good time.

This movie is obviously a labour of love for director/star Gary Young. The movie is far from sophisticated (in Australia we'd call it "rough as guts"), technically shaky, unevenly acted, and with many unintentional laughs, but even so, it has a raw unbridled energy and enthusiasm very rarely seen. Cosy and Grytt are uncliched Aussie characters that ring true. You wonder if Young and Wilson aren't just basically playing themselves. Wilson in particular as Gracious Grytt is one of the most memorable screen bikers. Hopper or Fonda he isn't, but his catchprase "negative waves, negative waves" will hopefully one day ensure him of undying cult status.

Youtube.

Click on share, it then gives you option of Embed, click on that and cut and paste the link into the comment box here, but to see it show up you need to refresh the page.

Vimeo is similar but the share/embed button is on the top right corner of screen.

BRASS EYE = CHRIS MORRIS = GENIUS. Didn't get a run in Australia, more's the pity.

"In his 1997 spoof documentary series, Brass Eye, Chris Morris showed over and over you can get celebrities to declare absolutely anything with authority just by putting them in front of a camera.

These cuts are from the second Brass Eye episode: "Drugs". In it Morris convinces his guests to denounce the horrors of the bogus drug "Cake". With little prompting they admit it's a fabrication, unaware of what they're proclaiming while desperately proclaiming it.

Morris even managed to get conservative Member of Parliament David Amess to introduce an act to ban it."

Here's two short vids of the recent Brisbane storms. The first one is a time-lapse of the skyline and gets pretty radical around the 40 second mark.
The second is the street view of the storm and hits fully at the one minute mark. What a monter that storm was!

Here is a link to The Power of Nightmares, subtitled The Rise of the Politics of Fear (2004) from Adam Curtis...also his films The Century of Self (2002), The Trap (2007), and All Watched Over by Machines of Love and Grace (2011). All thought-provoking stuff.

From the film:

“Both [the Islamists and Neoconservatives] were idealists who were born out of the failure of the liberal dream to build a better world. And both had a very similar explanation for what caused that failure. These two groups have changed the world, but not in the way that either intended. Together, they created today’s nightmare vision of a secret, organized evil that threatens the world. A fantasy that politicians then found restored their power and authority in a disillusioned age. And those with the darkest fears became the most powerful."
