The primary goal of this live lit experiment is to give away a slew of my ideas. It is a strange grab bag (Pandora’s cornucopia, perhaps?) of lateral, and sometimes milch-lateral thinking (any Rube Goldberg fans out there?). Having failed to get any traction on them over more than twenty years, I am passing the torches to anyo0ne who dares ot dream.
The ideas are somewhat buried in the make-it-up-as-I-go-along storyline, so on this page I separate the wheat from the tasty and colourful chaff. The ideas are listed here are in order of appearance of the manuscript. They are hyperlinked to the chpaters in which they are presented
This page will be updated as I weave more ideas into the text, starting in chapter 16, on July 14.
I recommend you watch this 1 minute ad from General Electric before plunging into the ideas
1 – KILLGOD!
The most controversial video game that will ever (never?) be made
2 – Impeaches ripe for the picking
This, Mairka, is how YOU THE PEOPLE, impeach a President
3 – Extraordinary theories require extraordinary action
How scientists can fore the hands of politicians on climate change
4 – Commonwealth
How to democratize of the digital e-commerce industry, to the benefit of millions, especially artists who work in the digital realm, bringing down or seriously damaging behemoths like Amazon, Apple, Spotity et al in the process
5 -ANIMALS ARE NOT FOOD… BUT HUMANS COULD BE
I’ve been a veggie since I turned 20, in 1983. Over the years I have used the argument hundreds of times on meatheads that are bleating for a beating. It would make a great film.
6 – Love School
Aside from the physical necessities – oxygen water, food, shelter – love is the most important ingredient to human life (and is life even worth living without love?). So, why is love not studied in any university in the world? Never mind the question; here’s the answer.
7 – Leashing the House of Saud
BOYCOTT LIVE NATION (OWNER OF HOUSE OF BLUES)
HOUSE OF SAUD 2ND LARGEST SHAREHOLDER
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE IN LEAGUE WITH HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSERS
This whole project is a fusion of fact and fiction. This part of it is rooted in reality. Most of the ideas I am trying to move forward, by giving them away in this story, were born long before COVID 19 hit the world. This one was born when the virus hit the West.
Live Nation, the world’s largest concert production and promotion company, took a donkey kick to the head. The House of Saud rushed in, and bought $500 million of Live Nation shares.
Thus, if and when the world gets back to some semblance of what it was prior to the virus, you will be supporting heinous human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia if you play a Live Nation show, or buy a ticket to one.
This is how the music community can not only stop this, but use its power to bring about fundamental change in Saudi Arabia, by kicking the House of Saud in the balls.
PS _ Yes, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE really does have a 2021 tour that is being orchestrated in conjunction with Live Nation. How bout that, huh? RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE making money for one of the world’s worst human rights criminals.
8 – Fight the (White) Power
Whites who are not racists need to segregate themselves from the bigots. here’s how.
