Onism: how much of the world have you seen?

onism – n. the frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time, which is like standing in front of the departures screen at an airport, flickering over with strange place names like other people’s passwords, each representing one more thing you’ll never get to see before you die-and all because, as the arrow on the map helpfully points out, you are here.

Ironically due to our connected world we’re all the more aware of the blank spots in our maps.

Steak, cream and fat are healthy for you!

Years ago I remembered watching a Woody Allen movie where scientists in the future laughed at our views on eating a diet rich in fat and greasy food. Apparently that movie is “Sleeper” but I don’t remember the rest of it!

‘Course since then the advice about fat has changed somewhat and sugar is now the big bad food stuff we should avoid but I think everything in moderation is probably the best for most people.

Yes, this video is a camera recording a Youtube video on a computer monitor and uploaded to Youtube again. Odd.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles

Wonder Woman



This is an alternate universe where the Justice League use lethal force to maintain order on Earth. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are not who you are familiar with. An animated movie is expected at the end of the month and will shine an altogether darker light on these super heroes.

In an alternate universe, the Justice League is a brutal force that maintains order on Earth. Superman is named Hernan Guerra and is the son of General Zod, who was rocketed to Earth as a child and raised by a family of Mexican immigrants. Batman is Kirk Langstrom, a scientist who has inadvertently transformed himself into a vampire in an attempt to cure his cancer, feeding on criminals to satisfy his hunger. Wonder Woman is Bekka, who is the wife of the New God Orion.[2][3] The Justice League’s unaccountability is ultimately challenged by the world’s governments following the suspicious deaths of renowned scientists.

There’s a series of comic books too. Here’s a sneak peek at the first Superman one. Looks great!
