Indonesia is full of so many contradictions in so many different ways but this place takes the cake.

Yeah , I read a book written by a fella Malcom hired to do the filming on one of his trips. Just the two of them and he reckons Malcom treated him like an indentured servant.

I had a run in with Malcom at his park in Broome. Just walking past and I saw him messing with his car outside the back fence , being a fan I thought I’d say g’day and tell him how much of a legend I thought he was. He didn’t even look up and told me that you pay at the front gate to get in the park.

Cheers , Malcom.

Can’t really fault his taste for adventure though and that’s what his movies mean to me.

Loved all those shows, Malcom douglas, Leyland brothers, Alby mangles, Harry Butler.

Sadly half of them turned out to be dodgy in some way, the TV/Movies still rock though.

I loved those shows too, and also the Malcom Florence fishing videos..was glued to them...That sex mountain video you posted was crazy Indo, there you go, in the end people just do what they want anyway.

Netflix released The Dawn Wall a little while ago.

Incredible documentary - I'd heard about this feat when it occured (in 2015) but the storytelling and cinemaphotography is amazing. And the backstory (going back decades) is incredible too.

I lived with a climber many years ago - lovely fella, but jeez they're more hardcore than almost every surfer I've ever met. 

Even if you don't like climbing, this docco will absolutely hook you in.

And jeez, Yosemite is a place I need to visit.

Has Valley Uprising been mentioned? Hilarious, history of climbing in Yosemite, on Netflix. Also, Free Solo if it's still on at the cinema.

Upvote for Valley Uprising. Such a good film.

Climbing really makes every other pursuit/sport/obsession seem like a walk in the park.

Yeah great try to discredit Lauren's new documentary with some video of some guy criticising an old video of hers, i mean FFS they guy doesn't even show his face.

Laurens new documentary isn't an opinion or theory its a documentary with real people and interviews etc that is are eye opening especially considering it mirrors much of the issues we have in Australia.

And im sure many things she has uncovered are also happening in our own system especially the abuse of the system by NGO/refugee advocates and coaching of refugees (well so called refugees) to game the system.

What a surprise another obscure link from Factotum trying to paint anyone with right wings views as some white supremest.

I like much of what she has to say, but like any figure don't agree with everything she has to say, and no i would never go see her or anyone like her or any kind of speaker, i wont even go see a comedian, only interested in original live bands at small venues.

I do think she can be a little too much at times using that shock type youtube/social media type tactics, but her new docco is far from that though, it's actually fairly mild and made more for mainstream consumption.

It's good but to be honest a little bit disappointed the best bits were already released as teasers, in particular the footage of refugee advocate from advocates abroad Ariel Ricker secretly recorded explain how they coach migrants to say and act including faking their religion to get accepted as refugees. (something that is undoubtably happening under our own system)

I also think it drags on a bit could have easily been cut too 60 minutes and presented a bit better in parts. (bit slow in areas ad doesnt flow as well as it could)

I think she could have also dug much deeper into things if she had actually used a group of immigrants undercover to bring to light many these issues and provide more evidence, especially the evidence of ISIS in camps etc that was hearsay from other refugees.

But still a good documentary and possibly the most complete documentary on the subject.

Fair enough, just because you support someone who is racist and fascist doesn't mean you necessarily hold those views yourself.

Jeepers, ID. Lauren Southern?!?

You talk about 'so called refugees', but LS happily supports the influx wealthy immigrants to a country, i.e. white people who can buy their way in - as opposed to the evil 'queue jumpers', who desperately board leaky boats and gamble their whole lives.

NZ accepts 60000 immigrants a year, the vast majority of which come here for a slightly better life. People like me. Queue Jumpers.

We only take a paltry 1500 refugees, yet they are the people Lauren Southern vilifies.

We just loooved her visit to NZ

Been watching The Deuce. From the makers of The Wire. 3rd and final season coming soon.

Well worth it.

Also just caught the film Lucky. Harry Dean Stanton's (almost) final hurrah. Poignant and beautiful little film. Cool too. Like the man himself. Vale.

Wife loves Deuce, can't get into myself. The actress that's in it was in a movie called 'Stranger than Fiction', with a very restrained Will Ferrel. Good movie if you haven't seen it, clever writing.

Take note of the main characters surnames.

Cheers , Zen.

I watch a bit of that fella’s stuff. He does alright off the goldy.

A few keen kayak crew get out around here. Their set-ups look like they’d cost more than the Sea Wok . Seen them catch marlin. They’re not afraid to go wide or fend off big fish jealous of their catch.

Not my cup of tea. A little too close to the action. Some big animals getting around out there and some of them like to be intimate. The fella in this vid is a bees deck away from full blown panic.

{Flowers}
Fans of UK Dark Comedies eg: Fawlty Towers,Spaced,Black Books will love this!
Hands down the most idiotic show on the idiot box...since Mighty Boosh!
[WARNING] 'Flowers' Mental Fatigue will make you laugh & cry to death.
Stars:
'Julien Barrett' (None other than our Beatnik crimper from The Mighty Boosh)
tbb will come straight out & say it ... JB's role & performance is equally insane.

Olivia Colman is perfectly cast as batty wife losing her marbles.
'tbb was not a huge fan of her usual dour power roles'.
OC is naturally funny & has you laughing from the get go...more of this please!

Goth Daughter & Spazz inventor Son are typecast but will drive yer round the bend.
Japanese animator that loves the Flowers (Family) to bits.(Like Munster's pet...Spot!)

Flowers household or default 'Mental ward'...attracts all manner of village idiots.

tbb is happy to say this show makes you more than laugh...it makes you come alive!
No plot Spoiler! Equally excellent & even stranger storyline awaits...dive on in!
https://iview.abc.net.au/show/flowers

tbb salutes the Flowers' end ditty...'that's some special songwriting'.
Luv that blank gen deadbeat sound...(give it a spin)
Arthur Sharpe..."My only worry". (Flowers end theme)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6uakVRsxbo

tbb is showering the crew with flower power.
Riptides ..."Hearts & Flowers".

Here’s a big time recommendation.

Incredible series on Food Matters TV called “ Transcendence “,

Perhaps the most insightful and inspiring thing I’ve watched in years.

Discusses the way that the mind controls our lives and bodies. Featuring Whim Hof amongst an array of scientists, surgeons, athletes and crew who have achieved incredible feats.

Novak Djokovic and whim hof are some of the people featured.

Amazing show .

TBB hits the nail on the head! I've had some good laughs from Flowers, after stumbling across it a few weeks back.
You're right about OC, not so keen on her previously but - damn - she's a good actor and almost better than anything in this type of 'mad hatter' arrangement / black comedy.
Also check out "Fleabag" which is a pretty dark / black comedy (at times) too.
