Okay, it's a new year and i'm going to put a stop to this madness before it gets anymore out of hand.
Djon or mania or whaterver your name is, I scrolled past much of what you said, as it isn't worth it. Let me say this, I don't seek to engage in talk to people who belong in a rubber room and if I did I would belong in a rubber room. That's why I'm going to put a stop to your comments before you show yourself as sick as Melesi.
First of all, I have never nor will ever engage in a debate with that pathetic, sick being. I don't take it serious, and my answers to her babbling reflect that. At least it does to sane, rational people with common sense. If you take her serious then you go somewhere and chat all day with her mad ramblings. Why come under my post? Trust me, I'll never come under one of yours.
Now, I could hardly take your argument as anything but as I said, 'ludicrous.' It makes no sense so yeah, if you were sincere then you're right we got off to a bad start and I would ask you to no longer correspond with me because no one could make an argument against WILLE LYNCH that is sound.
I, like NEGROSPIRITUAL, AND SUN-NUBIAN have already shown that the CONTENT is the TRUTH. End of story.
You've made the ludicrous argument that Blacks shouldn't use Willie Lynch because it's fiction.
Well, even if you believe it is FICTION then it should STILL BE EMBRACED AND USED as FICTION impacts the world just as all types of writings impact society.
For the record, HARRIET BEECHER STOWE USED UNCLE TOM'S CABIN the greatest FICTION BOOK EVER WRITTEN and it impacted the world. The ENTIRE WORLD.
UNCLE TOM'S CABIN:
Upon meeting Harriet Beecher Stowe for the first time, Abraham Lincoln reportedly said, "So this is the little lady who made this big war." Stowe was little"”under five feet tall"”but what she lacked in height, she made up for in influence and success. Uncle Tom's Cabin became one of the most widely read and deeply penetrating books of its time. It sold hundreds of thousands of copies and was translated into numerous languages. Many historians have credited the novel with contributing to the outbreak of the Civil War.
The daughter of an eminent New England preacher, Stowe was born into a family of eccentric, intelligent people. As a child, she learned Latin and wrote a children's geography book, both before she was ten years old. Throughout her life, she remained deeply involved in religious movements, feminist causes, and the most divisive political and moral issue of her time: the abolition of slavery.
Stowe grew up in the Northeast but lived for a time in Cincinnati, which enabled her to see both sides of the slavery debate without losing her abolitionist's perspective. Cincinnati was evenly split for and against abolition, and Stowe wrote satirical pieces on the subject for several local papers there. She often wrote pieces under pseudonyms and with contrasting styles, and one can see a similar attention to voice in Uncle Tom's Cabin, in which dialects and patterns of speech contrast among characters. Though Stowe absorbed a great deal of information about slavery during her Cincinnati years, she nonetheless conducted extensive research before writing Uncle Tom's Cabin. She wrote to Frederick Douglass and others for help in creating a realistic picture of slavery in the Deep South. Her black cook and household servants also helped by telling her stories of their slave days.
Stowe's main goal with Uncle Tom's Cabin was to convince her large Northern readership of the necessity of ending slavery. Most immediately, the novel served as a response to the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, which made it illegal to give aid or assistance to a runaway slave. Under this legislation, Southern slaves who escaped to the North had to flee to Canada in order to find real freedom. With her book, Stowe created a sort of exposÃ© that revealed the horrors of Southern slavery to people in the North. Her radical position on race relations, though, was informed by a deep religiosity. Stowe continually emphasizes the importance of Christian love in eradicating oppression. She also works in her feminist beliefs, showing women as equals to men in intelligence, bravery, and spiritual strength. Indeed, women dominate the book's moral code, proving vital advisors to their husbands, who often need help in seeing through convention and popular opinion.
Uncle Tom's Cabin was published in episodes in the National Era in 1851 and 1852, then published in its entirety on March 20, 1852. It sold 10,000 copies in its first week and 300,000 by the end of the year, astronomical numbers for the mid-nineteenth century. Today, analysis of both the book's conception and reception proves helpful in our understanding of the Civil War era. Within the text itself, the reader finds insights into the mind of a Christian, feminist abolitionist. For example, in the arguments Stowe uses, the reader receives a glimpse into the details of the slavery debate. Looking beyond the text to its impact on its society, the reader gains an understanding of the historical forces contributing to the outbreak of war.
Now that TRUTH alone puts an end to your 'Blacks shouldn't use Willie Lynch' like whites did to impact the enslavement world of that day.
Next, THE WORLD AT LARGE uses FICTION, BIOGRAPHIES, AUTOBIOS, POETRY, PROSE, and every other type of writing to IMPACT SOCIETY AND THE WORLD AT LARGE.
Why you feel it's BAD FOR BLACKS ONLY shows a WILLIE LYNCH BLACK SELF-LOATHING MENTALITY WITHIN YOU.
Movies and TV – The Medium of Society
By Pastor Rick Rogers
Key Verse: 1 John 2:15-16
Introduction: It was a challenge to name this chapter the "medium of society," as it seems so trivial. Television, and the movies and programs that are carried through it, form a philosophy, world view, standard and ethic which has a tremendous effect on society. As with music, it teaches a religion. And it is powerful! In television and movies, there is an experience attained through the senses of seeing and hearing, unlike other forms of entertainment such as reading novels or listening to music. Television can actually place you "in the realm" of the setting. Thus, it is a powerful teaching tool! As believers, we must understand the power and purpose of the modern screen, and obey biblical commands and principles concerning it's use.
I. THE HISTORY OF TELEVISION AND MOVIES
A. Silent films, 1910-1920. Mainly characterized by humor and romance. Charlie Chaplin was a favorite of this era. Charlie Chaplin was barred from the U. S. A. because of his sympathies for Communism and dislike for America.1
B. Classics, 1920-1940. Walt Disney began producing cartoon films such as "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Dr. Kober, quoting the Encyclopedia Britannica: "In the U. S., the first documentaries were made under the Soviet ... influence and reflected the thinking of the extreme left wing ... The public, old as well as young, wanted to see how the wealthy lived, dressed and misbehaved, and skillful directors such as Cecil B. DeMille helped educate and entire nation in the boudoirs (bedrooms), lingerie and riotous living. The worship of the stars reached delirious proportions."2
C. Westerns and Crime films, 1940-1950. Advocated violence, murder, ...
D. Sex and scandals, 1950-1960. Hollywood turned more and more to sex and scandal to lure people back to movie houses, as the popularity had decreased.
E. Shock and splatter, 1970-1990. Films about Satanism and witchcraft (the Exorcist, Poltergeist, ...) the supernatural (Star Wars), extra-terrestrials (Close Encounters of the Third Kind) blasphemous films (Jesus Christ Superstar) and hard core pornography were the prime movies for our "entertainment."
F. Science fiction and horror, 1990's - . Science fiction and horror, often with strong occult and New Age themes, are prevalent. These are often coupled with nudity and other forms of immorality.
Consider: These periods cover a general pattern not a particular rule. For example, "The Robe" was also produced in the 1950-1960 era. Nevertheless, a pattern has accompanied each period with a definite philosophy that impacted the culture. As stated at the outset, this is a powerful teaching tool! Letters E and F can be demonstrated by the increase of interest in the occult over the past two decades, and the intense perversion that has permeated our culture. Homosexuality, pedophilia, bestiality, couples living together outside of marriage, ... all reflect those axioms! The amount of violence has increased, and the brutality is unspeakable, akin to the Inquisition!
II. THE PHILOSOPHY OF TELEVISION AND MOVIES:
A. A distortion of reality. This is an inherent danger to children and teen-agers!
B. A dispensing of a sinful and worldly philosophy:
a promotion of materialism
a promotion of immorality
a promotion of violence
a promotion of profanity
a promotion of atheism and humanism
a promotion of the occult
C. A domination of personal life. Television dominates many homes, and schedules are built around programs!
D. A destroyer of time. We are called to be good stewards (1 Cor. 4:1-2) and to redeem time (Col. 4:5), not waste it. That is not to say one should NEVER watch ANYTHING on television – there are some good things, such as WVCY TV 30, Christmas specials, ...but one must be a faithful steward of time, treasures, talents, mind, ... Reading your Bible is infinitely more important, and some good studies about Theology and Christian living are needful for spiritual growth. It is also far better to read some good Christian novels (there are many fine Christian novels that teach biblical values and sound truth) and devotionals to help rather than hinder your walk with the Lord, as entertainment may.
E. A distraction from corporate worship. It is not uncommon for Christians to disregard the worship services of the church to stay home for television.
F. A disturbance of family life. As stated previously, it becomes the family worship center, it detracts from communication and developing relationships, and is all to often the center of attention at meal time rather than family devotions and discussion.
G. A developer of juvenile aggression. What younger children see on television is "real" to them. A Stanford University psychologist, Albert Brandura, lists the following immediate effects of television violence:
It reduces viewer "inhibitions against violent, aggressive behavior."
It teacher viewers "forms of aggression - that is, giving them information about how to attack someone else when the occasion arises.
The ethical ending, in which the villain gets his desserts, does not antidote the violence that occurred before. It ˜may keep viewers from reproducing villainy' right away, but it does not make them forget how to do it. The ethical ending is just a suppresser of violence, it does not erase.3
Note the following report from Reader's Digest:
TV violence produces lasting and serious harm
Those "action" cartoons on children's programs are decidedly damaging
TV erodes inhibitions
The sheer quantity of TV watching by youngsters increases hurtful behavior and poor academic performance.4
H. A disruption of the learning process. Entertainment replaces learning, as watching replaces reading and thinking.
I. A degrading of morality, as it glorifies sex, violence, ... cf. Pt. 2, above
J. A deadening of activity. People, especially teens and children, should be productive. Instead of hours of inactivity in a mentally neutral mode, people should be exercising and disciplining their bodies and minds. They should be learning and developing talents such as playing a musical instrument with which to glorify and serve the Lord.
III. A THEOLOGY FOR TELEVISION AND MOVIES
Consider: On this point, please read the following verses which match letters A – J in pt. II. Either by command, precept or principle, the Bible addresses every issue!
A. 1 Tim. 1:4; 4:7; 2 Tim. 4:4 F. Deut. 6:6-7; Eph. 6:1-4
B. Col. 2:8; James 4:4 G. Pro. 20:11; 22:6; 22:15; 29:15
C. Exo. 20:3; Isaiah 45:18; Eph. 6:4 H. John 5:39; 2 Tim. 2:15; 1 Peter 3:15
D. Eph. 5:15; Col. 3:8 I. Psalm 101:3; 141:4; 1 Thes. 4:3-4
E. Matt. 6:21, 24 J. Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Cor. 4:1-2; 6:19
Conclusion: From this very brief summary, consider the impact of television and movies have had on our culture. Has it been used for the glory of God, or for the decadence of man?
Now, having demolished your entire argument with the weapon of TRUTH you'll notice WHITES and the SANE WORLD uses not only writings, speeches, books, but FICTIOUS FILMS AND TV to IMPACT THE WORLD.
Do you find offense in them or just BLACKS? That's a rhetorical question no need for you to reply as I'm NOT really interested at all.
The 10 Best Films of the 90s
Back to Home
Article by Mark Dujsik
This was the decade that I got into film. It was also a decade of very personal growth. I started really watching movies when I was about 12, and here I am making a list of the films that touched me or made an impact on me in some way during that time (and even some a few years before then). These are all important films; they have impacted movies that followed and have also impacted the lives of the people who have seen them. When you think about it, that is the most you can expect from a film, and all of these are prime examples of the best that filmmaking has to offer.
10. Dead Man Walking (1995)
Tim Robbin's thoughtful, intelligent, and, most importantly, objective look at capital punishment is a masterpiece of incredible emotional complexity and a perfect example of how a film can engage an audience in serious thought about a complicated political and human rights issue. Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon give two of the best performances of the decade, and their scenes together ring of truth, compassion, stubbornness, and ultimately forgiveness. At a time when films seem afraid to tackle big issues, Dead Man Walking is a powerful testament to the impact film can have on an individual's conscience.
9. Fight Club (1999)
The most recent film on this list is also the most daring. An audacious attack on materialism and capitalism, Fight Club was, and still is, misunderstood and condemned as anarchistic and fascist. However, ten years down the line, it will most likely be seen as a masterpiece and one of the most influential films from the decade. Edward Norton proves he is one of the best actors of his generation and also one of the best working in film today, and Brad Pitt once again sheds his "pretty-boy" image to turn in a haunting and intense performance as a man many will quote with gusto without realizing they have fallen into the trap.
8. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
The single most surprising and inspirational film on this list, The Shawshank Redemption was all but ignored in theaters, but with a slew of Oscar nominations, it found life on video. It has become a phenomenon all its own and is even listed, at this time, as the second greatest film of all time on the Internet Movie Database, just behind The Godfather. The film's message of hope in the face of injustice is perfectly portrayed, and it is a film many will return to and many more will discover as time progresses.
7. Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
Leaving Las Vegas is first and foremost a love story. It is one of the most offbeat love stories on film, but it also deserves to be placed with the best. Material that is essentially melodrama is raised to grand emotional heights by two incredible performances by Nicolas Cage, as an alcoholic screenwriter, and Elisabeth Shue, as a Vegas prostitute, both of whom realize they need the other. The decision to shoot on 16mm gives the film an edgy and documentary-like feel, and the material itself is powerful and operatic.
6. Pulp Fiction (1994)
Pulp Fiction is a film that has been often-imitated and never matched. It is easily the most influential and most analyzed film of the decade. The big question is: Why? There is nothing revolutionary or profound, yet people have dissected the film to find many hidden meanings and religious undertones. Are they there? I have noticed them also, but what makes it special and unique is its brazen storytelling and darkly comic moments. It is pulp, to be sure, but it has somehow risen above that level to become greatly respected in many circles"”including mine.
5. Goodfellas (1990)
The Godfather may be the my choice as the best film ever made, but Goodfellas is the best mob film. How is this possible, you may ask? The Godfather created a glamorized and glorified Mafia, making it a modern Camelot of sorts, while Goodfellas went for stark realism. This is the mob as it must be: ruthless, unforgiving, primitive, influential, and highly organized. Full of great performances and a style that has been copied many times since, Martin Scorsese's opus has come to exemplify the modern crime epic.
4. Fargo (1996)
Since their 1984 debut Blood Simple, the Coen brothers have come to represent offbeat and cerebral American filmmaking at its best. Fargo is the Coens at their best. Based on a "true" story, this is the tale of a kidnapping gone horribly and outrageously awry. This is not new material, but in the hands of Joel and Ethan, it is the most unique film of the decade. How else do you describe a film that includes a pregnant police chief, Paul Bunyon and Babe the Blue Ox, a tan Sierra, and the most unusual and economic use of a wood-chipper ever captured on film. While all the performances are top-notch, William H. Macy and Frances McDormand propel the story with their own unequaled creations.
3. L.A. Confidential (1997)
Director Curtis Hanson's triumphant return to film noir is simply the best entry in the genre since Chinatown. While the story twists and turns through 1950s Hollywood, its plot never gets in the way of continually developing characters. The ensemble cast is flawless and contains early and outstanding performances by now up-and-coming stars Guy Pearce and Russell Crowe. The rest of the cast includes Kevin Spacey, Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito, and James Cromwell, who all turn in first class performances. At a time when old-fashioned filmmaking is rare or exploited, L.A. Confidential is the real deal.
2. The Thin Red Line (1998)
When Terrence Malick's first film in twenty years was released, it unfortunately came out the same year as Saving Private Ryan. Ryan shows war the way it actually is, while The Thin Red Line questions why war exists at all. The film is dreamlike in structure and execution. Images are placed upon images that say something about human nature while an almost continuous voice-over by the participants plays on the soundtrack. Sometimes we know who is speaking, and other times, we do not. It was not until my fourth viewing that I was able to follow one individual soldier's story. However, that is not the intention. This film is existential in its philosophy, and each individual is no more important than another. By the time the film ends, we realize it is not about a squadron at Guadalcanal; it is about everyone.
1. Schindler's List (1993)
This is the film by which Steven Spielberg should, will, and probably wants to be remembered. It is devastating in its realism, heartbreaking in its conclusion, and important in its remembrance. It is a film of sheer emotional power, unequaled in American cinema. It is a film many will and should return to in decades to come, and it will forever stand as a memorial to the lives lost in the Holocaust and a testament to the importance of each and every individual life.
Honorable Mention (in alphabetical order):
Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
Francis Ford Coppola's sumptuous film reinvents a classic and dazzles the senses with its primarily visual storytelling.
Breaking the Waves (1996)
A story about love and faith that is audacious in its themes, style, and complete immersion in deep emotions.
Ed Wood (1994)
An offbeat biography of the man called the worst filmmaker ever is also a strangely moving story of a man doing what he loves to do.
The Ice Storm (1997)
Ang Lee's shattering look at the culture of the 1970s is equally thought-provoking and moving.
Oliver Stone's epic story of one man's investigation into the assassination of John F. Kennedy embodies the American public's shock and bewilderment.
Malcolm X (1992)
The life of a truly and unfortunately misunderstood African-American leader is grandly told in Spike Lee's extraordinary biography.
A great ode to artistic and individual expression, Pleasantville is at times satirical and at others poignant, but it is always technically and visually superb.
Wes Anderson's sophomore effort, it is the story of a talented young man and embodies teenage angst, wonderment, and possibilities.
A darkly comic and, at times, deeply disturbing look into the drug underworld of Edinburgh is a brilliant display of style and substance living in harmonious coexistence.
The Truman Show (1998)
Peter Weir's important film is about the relationship between life and art and the need for a separation of the two.

Finally, to coin a phrase that impacted the entire Western world 'Akuna Matata' it means 'NO WORRIES' and millions were IMPACTED by this FICTIOUS WORK, so entitled THE LION KING.
If WHITES can use fiction, and every other vehicle to IMPACT THE WORLD. WILLIE LYNCH CAN, WILL, SHOULD AND IS RIGHTLY USED BY INTELLIGENT, THINKING BLACKS FOR THE SAME REASON.
THEREBY MAKING WILLIE LYNCH A TRUTHFUL WORK WORTH USING AND FOR THE RECORD, I DO NO CONCEDE ONE BIT THAT IT WASN'T A FACTUAL LETTER. RATHER, JUST DEMOLISHING THIS NONSENSICAL COMMENTARY ON 'WHAT BLACKS CAN AND CANNOT USE' TO BREAK THE DEMONIC SPIRIT OF WHITE RACISM.
OKAY? End of Story!
The lion King
Why The Lion King?
I think that The Lion King is certainly the best film ever made. Right after seeing the finnish version called "Leijonakuningas" at the local movie theatre, I noticed I had became emotionally attached to the movie. Whatever I do, wherever I go, It will always be significant part of my life. I haven't cried because of any movie, but even that is not completely out of the question when talking about The Lion King. It's loaded with so intense feelings. It was impressive enough to give me some kind of religious experience. Yeah, i do not profess any religions but it has absolutely nothing to do with this explanation here.
What have we got here?
I have collected the best Lion King links to my The Lion King sources catalog. Main intention is to provide easy access to all the fantastic Lion King related sites for everyone around the internet. If you know/have good site/page that is not included, mail me the URL and I will think about adding it to my list.
There are four different versions of the video release in my collection: The Lion King (english), Leijonakuningas (finnish), Lejonkungen (swedish), Der König Der Löwen (german). If you would like to trade a finnish (PAL) version of the video for some other version I haven't got yet, send me some mail.
I have spent countless hours by doing all The Lion King related things. Watching videos, collecting merchandise and browsing the internet. As the result, I have put together The Lion King oneline quotes collection. It is a text file with 597 quotes from the movie. Use them as taglines in e-mail (like me) or whatever you like. They were clipped from The Lion King script version 3.30 html.
If you are interested, why not to take a look at the brief inventory of my collection of The Lion King merchandise. Because I am still collecting more merchandise, these lists will be updated whenever I remember to edit them. You might also like to check out my index of The Lion King trading cards.
Even though I consider The Lion King as the best film ever made, there is still few things in it that I would like to change. Why is that, after stampede, Mufasa's dead body is not covered with (his own) blood and dust from the ground? He is still clean and in one piece! Oh, look, that really disturbs me! I have to use my poor imagination to render some reality to that particular scene. I know kids are terrified enough with the movie as it is, but I would like to have some kind of adults version. Another kids thing is that "Can't wait to be king" -scene. It should be funny but I think that is not so funny after all.
The Lion King is perfect, humans are not. That is also the reason why I am complaining about everything.
