Sandy Hook

☞ ☜

Independent Media Solidarity is a loose knit group of independent journalists that have come together to tackle the issue of Sandy Hook. We are normal people with normal lives, who have families, children, and jobs. Although many of us haven’t physically met each other, we are united. All we seek are answers to the many inconsistencies. But most importantly, we just want the truth made available to all who might seek it.

Over the past 2 years, efforts to explain and expose the Sandy Hook event may seem to have slowed down. We never slowed down.

The bad years – homeless and junked (2006-2007) by Rebecca

I never thought I would become this empty. I mean I have always been empty because that’s why I am an addict right ? A bottomless pit like a void needing to be filled. Drugs that come in many forms. Prescription pills to bring down the pain, anything to ease the pain. Alcohol that temporarily numbs the paranoia and lowers the inhibitions.

The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom



The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom is a BBC documentary series by English filmmaker Adam Curtis, well known for other documentaries including The Century of the Self and The Power of Nightmares. The series consists of three one-hour programmes which explore the concept and definition of freedom, specifically, “how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today’s idea of freedom.” The programme traces the development of game theory with particular reference to the work of John Nash (the mathematician portrayed in A Beautiful Mind), who believed that all humans were inherently suspicious and selfish creatures that strategised constantly. Using this as his first premise, Nash constructed logically consistent and mathematically verifiable models, for which he won the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences, commonly referred to as the Nobel Prize in Economics. He invented system games reflecting his beliefs about human behaviour, including one he called “Fuck Your Buddy” (later published as “So Long Sucker”), in which the only way to win was to betray your playing partner, and it is from this game that the episode’s title is taken.

Mania is one hell of an upper

high lows

Put your hands up if you’ve snorted speed or Coke? Smoked Meth?

I’ve done all three.

My attention span lasts for either 8 hours on one project or 2 seconds on countless ones.
I Avoid everything important like a new world plague; calling my bills for a payment extension, returning my friends calls or messages, drinking water, my marketing degree.
Don’t they know who I am? I’m fucking too important to deal with that shit.
