The Melbourne Grand Prix: $97M (To bring in a profit of $36M)
Fireworks: $14M (A conservative estimate of $10M for NYE and $1M for Australia Day)
National Stay Safe Online Awareness Campaign: $10M
Payouts to Politicians who lose the Election: $65M
Concessions to Mining Companies to ‘Lessen the pain of the Mining and Mineral Resources Tax’: $4.7B. That’s a B for Billion, and also total Bullshit.
Keeping Holden afloat: $275M
I don’t necessarily disagree with the government’s intentions on the last two points, as the purpose is to try and maintain employment figures. So people can buy bread. To make sandwiches. For the Grand Prix.
paulsdrivel asked: D: you don't do youtube anymore?
PAUL!! Hey!! Everyone go look at his videos, they’re great.
I don’t make videos anymore because I’m getting a PhD, which is crazy time-consuming. Also, because I’m getting my degree in Film Theory, so it’s basically exactly what I was doing in my videos but lots more complicated and interesting, and doing it kind of made making videos on youtube seem redundant. I still watch lots of videos, but I don’t comment anymore because I’m lazy and timepoor.
In conclusion: Everyone go watch Paul’s video they’re great; and y’all can call me doctor starting 2016.
Are objectively disgusting, right? My uni’s hosting one but no one liked my poster idea. What’s wrong with “Foam Party: come get covered in a white goo, just like every other Friday”?
So, to argue against the idea of film as a neuro-image, I’m going to need to read Deleuze. To understand him, I’m going to need to read Bergson. To understand him, I need to read Merleau-Ponty. To understand him, I need read Husserl. At what point in this philosophical circle jerk through time will I need to read Heiroglyphics? And will I need to have seen a cave painting on existence to understand them?
