Good series. What is the Matrix really about? There is hidden symbolism all over the three Matrix films.

The Shining Code, Stanley Kubrick, and Fake Moon Landings

Did Stanley Kubrick help NASA and the U.S. Government fake the moon landings? If so, did he use The Shining to reveal his involvement? Kubrick's film version is a vast departure from Stephen King's original novel. Even King was reported of saying how he hated Kubrick's interpretation.

This video makes one helluva argument revealing how Kubrick used hidden symbols and messages in The Shining as a secret confession about faking Apollo 11's mission to the moon.

This documentary is titled The Shining Code...

A couple weeks ago, we posted a special edition of The Corbett Report in which James Corbett wonders if Stanley Kubrick was silenced for his subversive films.

For more into the Kubrick mystery, check out Chuck Klosterman's article on Grantland... Room 237.

The Kubrick Question; Was He Silenced?

We're rabid fans of Stanley Kubrick. The American-born photographer and director has been mentioned in different conspiracy circles. For those of whom believe the moon landing was faked, they are convicned Kubrick was involved in some manner.

Regardless of your moon-related beliefs, Stanley Kubrick is a baffling and compelling fellow. His cinematic style is unique and his films spanned five decades as he zig-zagged throughout different psychological genres like Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Oddysey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shinning, and Full Metal Jacket.

In this episode of Corbett's podcast, you get to hear a rare clip of an interview with the ultimate reclusive Kubrick. Corbett seeks for some hidden meanings in Kubrick's films. He also wonders if Kubrick was a whistle-blower and the powers that be silenced him for revealing too much...

For a deeper exegesis on Kubrick's films, set aside some time and delve into Kubrick Creator: Alchemy in Stanley Kubrick’s Films.


Check out Chuck Klosterman's article today in Grantland. He recently screened the documentary Room 237 and shared his thoughts.

5 Ways Hollywood Is Conditioning You

Hollywood is conditioning you and shaping your thoughts and actions... and you don't even know it!

While you're at it, you might as well turn off your TVs too.

And deconstructing They Live is an amazing video series on how you can wake up.

Hollywood Spies: Sean Penn and George Clooney

Normally, I'd turn Sir Waffles loose on this topic for one of his epic rants in The Waffles Report, but I decided to let him have a conspiracy-free holiday weekend with his kids. So, I'll run with the ball on this juicy nugget of conspiracy fodder -- Hollywood spies.

Has the CIA infiltrated the upper echelons of Hollywood? It all started with a harmless post on one of our favorite conspiracy forums GLP: WTF is up with Sean Penn in South America?? Is he CIA, black ops or what??

Here's the skinny:
For the record: (Sean) Penn arrived at the Caribbean island AFTER TPTB failed in elect the Illuminati clown Wyclef Jean, president of the Haiti, because he ran away with his rally money, funded by Brangelina's CIA front disguised as foundation "Make it Right". But don't fool yourself thinking that Penn is there for humanitarian work. The Haiti is settled over a HUGE area of precious mineral resources, such as bauxite, copper, calcium carbonate, iridium, gold, marble and obviously oil.

Lately he was finally appointed as ambassador, though I'm not sure if as US or UN and since then he's making a tour all over South America, meeting with several presidents.

During his tour for Argentina, Sean Peen poked around in the Falklands dispute. The official version of MSM for his tour in South America, is that he's "collecting money and asking help for Haiti", but that's BULLSHIT, because Bolivia and Uruguay are beggars and have no money for lend to other nations, let alone donate.

So WTF??? Is he ahead of some major CIA black ops in South America, just like Clooney in Sudan???
First of all, when the hell did I miss out on Penn being named the US Ambassador to Haiti? I just saw him the other day as Spicoli in a re-run of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Every St. Patrick's Day, I watch State of Grace (aka the best film ever made about the Westies [aka Irish mob in NYC]), but I totally missed anything about Penn the diplomat.

Of course, the Sean Penn tangent was not as interesting as this gem: Proof that George Clooney is a CIA Agent.

Here's the Clooney spook highlights:
Clooney is the head of Satellite Sentinel Project, which is active for intel surveillance in Sudan.

Google provides the satellite gear for Clooney and the database of Sentinel project is analyzed at Harvard. Now, guess which actors are funding this spy project.

Meet the newest member of the Council on Foreign Relations: George Clooney. The Oscar winner has been granted life membership in the prestigious think tank -- Charlie Rose and NYT columnist Nick Kristof nominated him.
Are Penn and Clooney agents? No. Are they assets? Probably. Not all charities are bad, but the worst ones are ripe with corruption. Celebrity-backed charities can also be valuable front organizations for intelligence services.

Maybe TMZ needs to create a celebrity conspiracy unit of covert paparazzi, who ambush celebrity spies in foreign lands?

In the meantime, check out Clooney talking about the making of Syrianna...

Paul McCartney Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of George Harrison

Conspiracy has been brewing since the mid-1960s... Paul McCartney died in a car accident in 1966, his death was covered-up by MI-5 (British secret intelligence), and he was replaced by William "Billy Shears" Campbell to avoid mass hysteria.

Governator Fathered Bastard Child with Staffer

"I'll be back!"/"Oh, really?"

Well, now we know the real reason behind Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's split after 25 years of marriage. Apparently the former Governator of Colly-for-nee-yah knocked up one of his household staffers over a decade ago and has a 10-year old kid from their torrid affair. Schwarzenegger confessed the infidelity and secret offspring to Shriver only a few weeks ago, prompting her to move out of their Brentwood manse (and seriously, why is she the one moving out?)

I feel bad for Maria, not to mention their four teenage kids, but is this really a surprise? Ahh-nuld has been groping staffers, reporters, and pretty much any woman that comes within arms length of him since the 70's. Remember "Gropegate" back when he was running for governor in '03? All you pretty young things working at CAA had better watch your back(sides).

Hollywood Apocalyptica: World War Z

I'll admit, I was skeptical when I first picked up Max Brooks' novel World War Z. I'm not big on zombies, I thought the first season of The Walking Dead was "meh" at best and when it comes to apocalyptic fiction, my range is pretty polarized between explosive popcorn fluff and bleak naturalism. What I found was a world that satistfied both ends of the spectrum, and I blew through the book's 350 or so pages in maybe five hours.

Naturally, World War Z has been picked up for film adaptation by the Hollywood machine. Although Brad Pitt gave the project a significant boost late last summer when he committed to star, Paramount still balked at the picture's $125 million price tag. They elected to share the burden with a triumverate of outside financiers including Skydance Productions. The four-year old shingle based at the Santa Monica Airport is run by David Ellison, the son of Oracle founder and CEO Larry Ellison. When Dad is the sixth-richest man in the world with a $28 billion net worth, it's pretty easy to get a $200 million line of revolving credit from JP Morgan and a four-year studio deal.

The marketplace is pretty rife with zombie material at the moment, a subject Deadline's Nikki Finke took on when the co-financing deal was announced. With talent like Pitt and director Marc Forster at the helm, though, I'm more optimistic about World War Z than another installment of Resident Evil.

The film is casting right now (The Killing's Mireille Enos signed on today to play Pitt's wife) and cameras are scheduled to roll this summer.

Hollywood Apocalyptica: Battle L.A.

It takes a lot to get me into an actual movie theater these days and pay $12 to share breathing room with a few hundred L.A. douchebags and their beeping texting devices, but an honest-to God, rock-em-sock-em, so-bad-its-good disaster flick is one of the few cinematic pleasures that will lead me to suck it up and deal with the westside's worst. Battle: Los Angeles was one of them, and although it didn't ascend to the lofty heights of Independence Day or even Volcano, I'm a sucker for watching my hometown invaded by reptilian-looking aliens while Aaron Eckhart emotes just enough to ensure himself another paycheck picture by asking a ten-year old boy to be "his little marine." With a domestic gross of nearly $82 million, there's a significant chance we'll be seeing a sequel in the not-too-distant future. Battle: Shanghai anyone?

Battle: Los Angeles received only a 21% "fresh" rating from the top critics on Rotten Tomatoes, placing it behind even the critically reviled remake of Arthur and the stoner comedy Your Highness. But of all those crankypants purveyors of celluloid high art, I found myself agreeing the most with one Mr. Bill Goodykoontz (that's his real name, I'm not making this shit up) of the Arizona Republic:
As it stands, Battle: Los Angeles is good dumb fun. A little less talking and a little weirder alien and it might have been something more.
If you're a disaster flick aficionado like me, the two-hour romp through an exploding Santa Monica war zone will certainly hold your attention. Natives will especially enjoy watching the intergalactic reptilians waste the 10 freeway.

Battle: Los Angeles is still playing nationwide and will hit DVD in June.

The Waffles Report: Battlefield L.A.

Did you know that Battlefield: L.A. is a true story?

It was jacked up for Hollyweird, of course, but it is based on a true alien invasion. You can read more details about it here. Here is a brief recap of what happened:
Imagine a visiting spacecraft from another world, or dimension, hovering over a panicked and blacked-out L.A. in the middle of the night just weeks after Pearl Harbor at the height of WWII fear and paranoia. Imagine how this huge ship, assumed to be some unknown Japanese aircraft, was then attacked as it hung, nearly stationary, over Culver City and Santa Monica by dozens of Army anti-aircraft batteries firing nearly 2,000 rounds of 12 pound, high explosive shells in full view of hundreds of thousands of residents. Imagine all of that and you have an idea of what was the Battle of Los Angeles.
The thing that makes me believe that this was a UFO attack is the fact that NOBODY has heard of it. It was so expertly covered up that the public knows basically nothing about it. It is the same reason I think Roswell is a lame duck. It is way too obvious and well publicized. It is the governments way of saying "Hey look here!" Meanwhile they make secret deals with alien civilizations in the background. I mean, what are a few hundred thousand fattened Americans sold for dinner stock verses technological superiority over the planet. Seems like a good deal to me. Do not even pretend that you thought Americans getting super fat was just some accident.

We at the Tao of Fear will continue to keep you up to date on the latest developments no matter where they lead us. Stay safe, my sheeple.

The Hollywood War Machine

It's not easy to find a vast selection documentary films on cable TV. That's why I'm a fan of a site called Top Documentary Films because you can watch films for free. They have a massive collection on a wide selection of topics. Top Docs is particularly handy if you don't have a Netflix account.

I must have a dozen or so flicks bookmarked for future viewing. One of those was Empire: Hollywood and the War Machine. When I noticed a blurb about the film on Naked Capitalism, I figured that was a sign that I should bump it up to the top of my list.

You can watch the short film here...

Charlie Sheen: Torpedoes of Truth

The highly-anticipated inaugural episode of the Charlie Sheen show (aka Sheen's Korner) was streamed live on UStream on Saturday night.

My initial thoughts? It was a bit lame. Actually, that's being nice. To be blunt, it sucked because we didn't get to see the crazy psychopath. Instead, Charlie sat behind his desk with a sidekick as we got a tepid derivative of almost every talk show in Hollywood. Actually, his crew was a trio of sycophants who laughed at every one of his jokes. Out of 50+ minutes, I'd say that maybe 10 minutes of Sheen's Korner were somewhat entertaining. The worst segment? Cringe worthy moment when Charlie recited his Twitter follwers' Top 5 favorite Charlie Sheen quotes that he uttered when he made the rounds last week during his media blitz. Fucking-A, bro...Charlie...what the hell? We all tuned in to hear new material! Not to hear you repeat your greatest hits while reading them off index cards.

But then unexpectedly on Sunday evening, Charlie unleashed a surprise attack with a "torpedo of truth." Clocking in at under 14-minutes, the second episode of Sheen's Korner featured a video-recorded a phone conversation with a member of his trusted inner circle. The conversation appears to have taken place on Sunday morning, and by the looks of Sheen, he had been up all night....partying...banging 7-gram rocks probably...which meant that we finally got to see the rambling quote machine in action. But wait, there's more...Charlie the wounded artist ended the impromptu episode by waxing poetically about his dead dog.

Ah, that insanity was exactly what I had hoped for. The trainwreck aka the "torpedo of truth" can be seen here...

To sum up...if Sheen's Korner is anything like Saturday night's episode, then it's gonna be a big fat bust and I'll never tune in, thereby tuning him out. However, if the live stream takes on the freaky, bizarre tone of the torpedoes of truth, then I'll be one of millions religiously watching Charlie's rambling dissertations in homage of Dennis Hopper's character from Apocalypse Now.

The epidemic known as Charlie Sheen has infected America, Twitter, and now...UStream. Stay tuned for vaccination instructions.

Winning!: Today in Charlie Sheen News

OK, we all know that the Charlie Sheen media blitz is really just the latest shiny toy the Military-Industrial-Entertainment Complex is using to distract the sheeple from what's really going on. Unfortunately, a mania-fueled Charlie Sheen is so damned entertaining that even for us fear mongers it's really, really, REALLY hard to turn away from this gruesome pile of roadkill. Because really, who doesn't love hookers, blow, porn stars, verbal vomit, and winning?

Here. Get it over with, get it done, and try to move on. It's your daily Charlie Sheen fix.

Charle Sheen Quotes as New Yorker Cartoons: They're not new cartoons, rather older ones with their captions replaced with a choice Sheen musing.

Live the Sheen Dream: Clicking Charlie's head automatically generates a quote.

@charliesheen is on Twitter and he's verified: How long before #winning is a trending topic?

And finally, over on, Nikki Finke reports that the crew of Two and a Half Men will at least be paid for four of the eight episodes that were missed this season due to Sheen's antics.
