Da Vinci Code: Stanley Kubric’s 2001: Space Odyssey DECODED

Da Vinci Code: Stanley Kubric’s 2001: Space Odyssey DECODED

The RENAISSANCE IS HERE TODAY: please SHARE with this entire post with everyone!

The Great Filmmaker/Film Director STEVEN SPIELBERG even said Stanley Kubrick is the GREATEST FILM DIRECTOR of all time in Film History

In the end of 2001: Space Odyssey Stanley Kubrick showed in the last scene there was an unborn baby and earth next to each other,  Kubric meant that we are one human race, one earth, one human kind meant to be one happy family regardless of differences in race and religion.

Let’s Discuss the FILM:
2001: Space ODyesSY
A Film by the GREAT FILM DIRECTOR: Stanley KUBRICK
Read all the comments I made!

Also Films inspire and create the Future like your (George Clooney) Film TomorrowLand

George Lucas was inspired by 2001: Space Odessy to create Star Wars, also inspired Shakes and Juice box drinks, also in 2001: Space Odessy had Bush Baby Dolls (Like Barbie, short for Barbra dolls), also Steve Jobs was inspired Tablets that he saw in 2001: Space Odessy.

The films that all you in the Film industry create and put out into the world inspires the audience and creates a realty.

Please read all my other comments on other boards, talk to and see everyone and please discuss this and what I else I posted on previous posts.

Imagination + Story + Film = Reality

The power of imagination and The Power of Film

Imagination, Vision, Story, create film and creates Realty of present day and creates future realty

At the end of the film 2001: Space Odessy was talking about the coming NEW RENAISSANCE at the end of the film(See entire film to understand the message)

The Monolith on the moon and earth = means death that we all face as civilization

The AI asking whether if it’ll dream once the man unplugs the AI makes us question what we all all wonder as a human being too of what happens after we all die, The monolith is that there’s no message on the gray square slab of square, we all species face death but we don’t know everything about it and we’re not meant to know everything about it, because it’s a mystery of the unknown even if we travel to the moon like in the film 2001, they don’t know what that representation of death, the monolith found on the moon and even though man is advanced enough to travel from earth into space to the moon, but yet the same question pops up that is found on earth. Death is something that’s been happpening since the beginning of time…. we’re not meant to live forever because there’s loneliness and isolation of living forever, for example the modern film AI and in 2001 the ending of the man landing in another planet but yet he faces once again elder years in a nice wealthy looking home, even though we have everything we need and want which is nice home and food, we all face old age and isolation but we see at the ending earth and the unborn baby next to see each other and coming toward earth, That baby represents change and new generation, and Being born again, REBIRTH RENAISSANCE To come, Stanley Kubric invisioned and imagined this new change to come in the future.

Everyday Courage2
Everyone has a moment that impacted or changed their life.

Article written by: Min Lee

The moment that changed my life forever was in Kindergarten. I moved to the United States when I was 5 years old in the summer of mid 1980’s from South Korea. I didn’t know the English Language and only spoke Korean at home with my parents because that was the only language they knew how to speak also. The school one mile away from my home said I had to go to a school 2 towns over because the local school near me didn’t have a bilingual program.

When I arrived at that school there were a small group of us (There was about a total of 20 on average of 2-3 students per grade in the bilingual program) from South Korea and Poland and other recent arrivals from different countries in the bilingual program and I was the only one that was from the bilingual program in my Kindergarten class (also was the only Asian-American in my class, there weren’t many Asian-Americans living in the US in the 1980’s)

They took us to a small classroom on the second floor with cubicles in small groups with students who were recent arrivals from different countries of all ages from Kindergarten to 6th grade for extra tutoring in reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension in English.

The school wanted the bilingual students immersed in the classroom so we spent majority of the day in our regular classes so we were learning what the rest of our peers were learning.

The moment I could to this day not forget was when I was in recess one day. It was time to line up to go inside and while standing in line this boy pushed me down to the ground and said, “Go back to where you came from!”

I just fell on the ground crying because I didn’t know what to say and I couldn’t change my situation.

I didn’t know much English but those words were something I’ve never forgotten.

Just then as I was pushed down, a girl, who stood in line a few students away, came and gave me her hand and said, “Are you Okay?”

She had the courage to tell the boy who pushed me down, “Don’t say that.”

A couple days later she gave a me a feel better card with a candy cane taped on the front and signed the card ending with “Your Friend, Sarah.”

I was so very grateful to Sarah because she stood up for me and made efforts to be my friend when no one else did.

After 2 years in the program I graduated from the bilingual program I was transferred back to the elementary school that I was supposed to attend which was one mile from my home.

I was able to speak fluently finally but with an accent and at my new school there was a transfer student from Japan that didn’t know any English so I volunteered to help her understand what was going on in the classroom. So the teacher had moved our desks next to each other.

I communicated with her by showing her what the teacher wanted us to do, like taking out her paper, pencil and scissors when the teacher instructed us to do so, and she just followed my exactly what I did, and that’s how we communicated with one another even though I didn’t know how to speak, read, write and understand any Japanese words. .

Then there was a girl who just transferred to our school that who was made fun of for wearing mismatched clothes that were holey (I don’t mean the religious kind of holy) and was also made fun of for having crooked teeth and wearing thick glasses.

Everyday she was taunted, she never cried but sometimes I saw tears welled up in her eyes. So one day I couldn’t take hearing such meanness anymore. I stood up for her, and went up to her and talked to her and got to know her. She was really nice.

After I successfully befriended her, I decided it was fun getting to know new people and decided during recess I decided to approach everyone on the playground. After 2-3 days I knew everyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, obese or thin, poor or wealthy, who were at recess with my class.

Because of Sarah’s courage in kindergarten to stand up for me, I befriend and stand up for people who may be different than me, and give a voice for those who don’t have a strong voice.

Because of Sarah’s courage, I am working towards becoming a teacher so that I can teach children to be kind, caring people in society, and to be have courage to become an individual that stands up for others whenever they can.

Stanley Kubric’s Film Decoded: Eyes Wide Shut

Please share with friends and others in the industry and people that can make a difference.

The Great Filmmaker/Film Director STEVEN SPIELBERG even said Stanley Kubrick is the GREATEST FILM DIRECTOR of all time in Film History

The Great Filmmaker/Film Director STEVEN SPIELBERG even said Stanley Kubrick is the GREATEST FILM DIRECTOR of all time in Film History
(EYES WIDE SHUT is also a Film Directed by: ONe of the Great Filmmaker in Modern Film History Stanley Kubrick)

Eyes Wide Shut: I liked the part when Tom Cruise…………..

I liked the part when he is in middle of the cult and with all the people around, after he witnesses the naked women, he in turn is asked to take off all his clothes and get naked in front of everyone, and he is shocked, and taken aback and is very surprised by what is asked of him. You never see that in a movie, where most women are asked to be in a sex scene and are expected to shed their clothes, and they don’t get surprised or shocked or taken aback, or do they???? in before after shooting the scene in the film in reality but men directors and actors don’t think about how the women actresses who are asked to be part of their film are sometimes told they must take off their clothes in front of everyone.

Also when he enters that party or cult he notices that only the women are naked, standing around and you see people having sex, it’s only the women’s faces during sex are shown, both annoymous masked men and watch them having sex, it must feel like that when actors are working on films, you don’t get the see the who’s watching your films and their reactions to your film, and also most films only show visuals of mostly the women naked in films, you never see a penis in R rated films, with the exception of There’s Something About Mary, when he gets his zipper gets stuck on the penis, I think it was PG 13 or R not sure…. and they only show it because it serves the humor/comedy of the story, it was such a horrific scene probably for most men to see that scene, like HOly *beep* that would’ve been painful it happened to me.

I think currently only X rated films show men’s penises and private parts and not R rated rated or PG13

It’s like Tom Cruises character enters into this cult and experiences the weirdness of the film world, in which he becomes part of the audience member and experiences what it feels like to be an audience member, where fully clothed audience watches naked people have sex, the weird ritual of seeing naked women on display and weirdness of watching these people having sex in front of him and only displaying woman’s faces and reactions to ritual of having sex.

Like being a child again, and experiencing watching a rated R film for the first time in which there is a sex scene during a regular narrative film on a cable TV. Like a child entering the adult world, they see the ritual of adulthood, which is normal to the adult, Like the film world, the regular cult members, who partake in these ceremonies and show of sex on display is normal to them but to the child entering this world, it’s completely weird and odd and strange and new and questioning what the hell is going on here, what does it all mean.

In the end it was a naked woman on display for the viewing pleasure of the fully clothed and masked people, that saves him and she is his hero, in which she stops him being naked in front of everyone in the cult.

I heard the Playboy Mansion (There is a mansion in Eyes Wides Shut where the main character was the night before) is bought by someone else and so maybe it’ll be turned into something else besides Sex focused:

Maybe it’ll be more about love and connecting

Maybe it’ll be more about love and connecting.

Maybe at the museum there be something Like a ball room dance party or dinner parties like Cinderalla movie which is open to the general public

A Letter to Donald Trump (Our Future President)

A Letter to Donald Trump

First I want to share with you some dreams I’ve had. These are real dreams I had and at the time I dreamt them I didn’t fully understand why I dreamt them but today I understand.

First of all,  I Love both Republicans and Democrats! We need both parties to collaborate and work together to solve our country’s problems.

I had a dream I met Jesus in dark room with a table with bags and purses stacked up high up, and Jesus told me to choose one….
I chose a messenger bag.

Then before I even heard of Barack Obama, before 2006, I saw in my dream an African American man in a suit and African American woman in a dress and they were on a stage and waving at crowds of people. At the time I had no idea who they were and why they were waving at a large crowd.  Then in 2008 I saw on election night, on TV the same vision I saw in my dream. It was Barack Obama and Michelle Obama at Grant Park waving at crowds for winning the 2008 Presidential elections.

I believe there is coming of the NEXT CHrist….and Suffering
When We speak of suffering we know all know who we are talking about….

P.S. Donald and Trump: You can get ties at Sears and Wrinkle Free nice shirts at Banana Republic for January 20, when Trump swears in as President

P.S. Melania and Ivanka:  You can meet with a fashion stylists from Banana Republic for the swearing in on January 20 day time dress and You can go to Sears and you can go on www.Sears.com or meet with Fashion stylists at Sears to select gorgeous evening dress and shoes at Sears.

Also Trump you should have the first dance at the LIVE TELEVISED Inaugration Neighborhood Community Party with your daughter for show and tell.

As for Suffering, my father suffered alot growing up so I wanted you to hear his story.  He grew up in extreme poverty and he had 8 siblings and his parents worked on other people’s land spraying pesticide on other people’s farm land (they both died of poor health because of the pesticide), and they only had one bowl of potatoes to share with his both parents and 8 siblings, many days he went hungry, he used to work before and after school on other people’s farm land to work for make money or if they didn’t have any money to pay him, he’d ask if for payment stay for a meal, so he wouldn’t go hungry.

Many days he did go hungry. So right out of high school he started working for a company that manufactured boats and he worked on the assembly line and he didn’t make much money.  He would have to work one year to save enough money to buy a pair of jeans and work and save one year to buy a camera.

He was very poor working on the assembly line building boats, in a factory.  So when my mom got pregnant with me in their mid twenties, they almost aborted me and I now understand why they almost aborted me because he grew up in so much poverty that he didn’t want to bring a baby into the world and have him or her suffer as much as he did because of lack of finances, but at the last minute they decided not abort me.  But having abortions in USA is so expensive that it almost is like taking the freedom of choice to abort away from people who don’t have the $800-$600 to pay for the abortion.

I believe that when a baby is aborted, his or her soul doesn’t die but instead the soul goes back up to heaven to wait to be born to parents that feel ready financially and are at the right moment in their lives for children.

But I think more needs to be done to help working parents to be able to afford child care.  For example people working in part time jobs like customer service in retail business where 1 in 8 Americans are employed in as a career to support their families. Customer service only usually pays around $8.25/hour working only 15-20 hours a week on average for customer service and part time jobs. With that you can barely afford rent and sometimes barely enough to buy maybe some bread, eggs, deli meat, and maybe some milk or juice, so people in these part time jobs and customer service jobs are lacking in nutrition and many can’t afford proper regular health check ups and health insurance so if they get injured or sick they go in extreme debt.

Back to childcare with $8.25/hour you can’t barely for childcare you can barely pay rent and barely pay for healthy nutritious choices and variety of healthy grocery choices. Someone needs to step in to improve and find solutions to these problems.  Either the Government or Fortune 500 companies (and Even Fortune 1000 companies) on average Fortune 500 companies make hundreds of millions of dollars, and on average if they own restaurants or retail outlets, they own 1,000 locations nationally.  More American Companies need to sell more internationally too, there are potentially 7 billion potential customers out there in the Rest of the world. But we need to help improve education and better living wages and better living conditions for the rest of the world.

With better education, higher wages and better living conditions  the rest of the 7 billion people of the world will not only be able to afford more American products but will have live happier lives with better living conditions, imagine if we were suffering and living hard lives, wouldn’t we want someone with the capability to improve our lives to step in?

Be sure to put yourself in the other person’s shoes before making decisions, ask yourself what if that was me, would I like it if……

We Learn from HISTORY so we don’t make the same mistake in the present day and future.

My name is Min
An Amercan
An Immigrant.

Please Love ALL AMERICANS
Please Love all Immigrants
Had my dad not immigrated to the United States, I would not have been able to deliver this message to you.

Please also if you are living in wealth, please try to help the rest of the world, somewhere where they are struggling and suffering in poverty.

Thanksgiving is coming up and I think this thanksgiving is going to be a special Thanksgiving. A day when it’s a national family gathering for dinner.

Everyday Courage2
Everyone has a moment that impacted or changed their life.

Article written by: Min

The moment that changed my life forever was in Kindergarten. I moved to the United States when I was 5 years old in the summer of mid 1980’s from South Korea. I didn’t know the English Language and only spoke Korean at home with my parents because that was the only language they knew how to speak also. The school one mile away from my home said I had to go to a school 2 towns over because the local school near me didn’t have a bilingual program.

When I arrived at that school there were a small group of us (There was about a total of 20 on average of 2-3 students per grade in the bilingual program) from South Korea and Poland and other recent arrivals from different countries in the bilingual program and I was the only one that was from the bilingual program in my Kindergarten class (also was the only Asian-American in my class, there weren’t many Asian-Americans living in the US in the 1980’s)

They took us to a small classroom on the second floor with cubicles in small groups with students who were recent arrivals from different countries of all ages from Kindergarten to 6th grade for extra tutoring in reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension in English.

The school wanted the bilingual students immersed in the classroom so we spent majority of the day in our regular classes so we were learning what the rest of our peers were learning.

The moment I could to this day not forget was when I was in recess one day. It was time to line up to go inside and while standing in line this boy pushed me down to the ground and said, “Go back to where you came from!”

I just fell on the ground crying because I didn’t know what to say and I couldn’t change my situation.

I didn’t know much English but those words were something I’ve never forgotten.

Just then as I was pushed down, a girl, who stood in line a few students away, came and gave me her hand and said, “Are you Okay?”

She had the courage to tell the boy who pushed me down, “Don’t say that.”

A couple days later she gave a me a feel better card with a candy cane taped on the front and signed the card ending with “Your Friend, Sarah.”

I was so very grateful to Sarah because she stood up for me and made efforts to be my friend when no one else did.

After 2 years in the program I graduated from the bilingual program I was transferred back to the elementary school that I was supposed to attend which was one mile from my home.

I was able to speak fluently finally but with an accent and at my new school there was a transfer student from Japan that didn’t know any English so I volunteered to help her understand what was going on in the classroom. So the teacher had moved our desks next to each other.

I communicated with her by showing her what the teacher wanted us to do, like taking out her paper, pencil and scissors when the teacher instructed us to do so, and she just followed my exactly what I did, and that’s how we communicated with one another even though I didn’t know how to speak, read, write and understand any Japanese words. .

Then there was a girl who just transferred to our school that who was made fun of for wearing mismatched clothes that were holey (I don’t mean the religious kind of holy) and was also made fun of for having crooked teeth and wearing thick glasses.

Everyday she was taunted, she never cried but sometimes I saw tears welled up in her eyes. So one day I couldn’t take hearing such meanness anymore. I stood up for her, and went up to her and talked to her and got to know her. She was really nice.

After I successfully befriended her, I decided it was fun getting to know new people and decided during recess I decided to approach everyone on the playground. After 2-3 days I knew everyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, obese or thin, poor or wealthy, who were at recess with my class.

Because of Sarah’s courage in kindergarten to stand up for me, I befriend and stand up for people who may be different than me, and give a voice for those who don’t have a strong voice.

Because of Sarah’s courage, I am working towards becoming a teacher so that I can teach children to be kind, caring people in society, and to be have courage to become an individual that stands up for others whenever they can.

I’m super excited to share these delicious M&M’s Christmas Cookie Bars! The recipe is really, really good and perfect for holiday baking. These are easy to make and packed with chocolate, yum! The texture of the M&M’S with the mini chocolate chips and white chocolate chips is so good. Perfect for a party or holiday gift giving. These make a big 9×13 pan of rich and delicious M&M cookie bars. Depending on how you cut them, they can make 18 bars all the way up to 36 bars.

You can already grab a big bag of Christmas M&M’s for your holiday baking needs!

M&M'S Christmas Cookie Bars Recipe

 

I initially planned on just baking these with mini chocolate chips and Christmas M&M’S, but after I transferred the cookie dough to the pan, I thought a pop of white chocolate chips would make it look even more festive.

 

M&M'S Christmas Cookie Bars Recipe

So when I pressed the additional M&M’S and mini chocolate chips onto the top of the cookie dough bars, a trick I always use when making chocolate chip cookies or M&M’s cookies, I added some white chocolate chips too.
