SORT BY Relevancy
in Pop Culture
The SpeakEasy founder known as Carol Borden chats with K. A Laity about the reasons for starting up this project and about her manifold activities on behalf of the Cultural Gutter, dedicated to disreputable art. On the agenda, art, films, books and various secret plots to unfold. A mere half hour for our inaugural episode. It's bound to be too little!
Have you recently had friends, co-workers, or strangers suddenly get pissed off at you for what seemed like no reason at all? Maybe you told yourself that they were overreacting or being too sensitive, or that they had no right to be angry when you clearly didn't mean to do whatever you did (and in fact aren't even sure what it was). If you're a socially inept type like me, I bet you've had this happen within the last month.
or those of us who aren't great with people, we figure that silence is always the safest bet. If you're an introvert, you spend so much of your time wishing that other people would just shut the hell up that you figure you're doing everyone a favor. So, you run into a co-worker at the mall and think it's better to pass by in silence than do an awkward stop-and-chat that you'd probably screw up anyway.
Then, after you pass by this person, you hear them in the aisle behind you mutter, "Asshole."
So What's the Problem?
This is literally the most frequent social mistake I see in my day to day. You didn't 're confused because, well, who would ever assume that silence is an insult?
If you're confused, think of it this way: respond to the party invitation. You didn't reply to their funny text with a smiley. You didn't wish them a happy birthday. Now they're bitter and youIf you apply for a job, which is worse -- a rejection letter, or no reply at all? The former is bad, but the latter is dismissive, and that's a thousand times worse. (Note: By far the angriest reaction I get to hate mail is when I don't reply at all.) That's how some people take your failure to speak to them -- like you didn't even open their resume before tossing it in the trash.
On this week's ScreenPicks Movie Show, we review four new films. First, we look at The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Then we review the new Neil Blomkamp film Chappie. Next, we'll review the new Vince Vaughn comedy Unfinished Business. And finally, we look at the documentary Unfinished Business.

"Best Director Award"(2012 LA Film, TV and Webisode Festival) winner, Alex Bram is on a mission to bring suspense, surrealism and quality back to horror.
Gaining support as a new voice, his various projects have been able to attract legendary figures of the genre rallying behind him. For his werewolf epic, “NEW BREED,” Special Creature Make-Up Effects legend Steve Johnson (“American Werewolf in London,” “Species”) has joined to deliver on the concept of applying the latest technology available, in the most tasteful yet terrifying way, to bring to life beasts like we’ve never seen before.
Eduardo Sanchez (Blair Witch Project Director) will bring Bram’s “CLOUDLAND” to life. That project is being spearheaded by Jeffrey Reddick, the creator of “Final Destination.” Reddick is both co-screenwriter with Bram and Executive Producer.
Alex Bram’s award-winning psychological thriller "Body of Work" honors the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock, while at the same time, using modern technology to bring about a new wave of suspenseful filmmaking. That film brought two "Best Cinematography" awards and one Canadian "People's Choice".
For three years, Bram founded and ran the "Carnival of Darkness Film Festival," which showcased the very best short horror films from around the world. This yearly event was held at Los Angeles Film School and was put on like a twisted carnival experience.

Some dreams feel so revelatory—if only returning to sleep would take us back there. It turns out, however, that our ability to shape our dreams is better than mere chance. In the blockbuster movie Inception, Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his compatriots use drugs and psychological profiles to trigger specific dreams in people. Although the heavy sedation and level of detail incited are far-fetched, dream control isn't entirely a Hollywood fantasy.
Techniques to control, or at least influence, our dreams have been shown to work in sleep experiments. We can strategize to dream about a particular subject, solve a problem or end a recurring nightmare. With practice we can also increase our chances of having a lucid dream, the sort of "dream within a dream" that Inception's characters regularly slip into.
The ability to influence other people's sleep worlds is still crude. But emerging technologies raise the prospect that, at the very least, we'll get an idea of what others are dreaming about in real time.
