"Fear is the mind-killer," but movie production is a close second. As it's 55 years to the day since Frank Herbert's epic novel Dune was published I look at the struggle to bring that story to the silver screen.

This is the story of David Lynch's Dune... #SaturdayMotivation Image
Dune is an epic story: conceived by Frank Herbert after studying the Oregon Dunes in 1957 he spent five years researching, writing, and revising it before publication. He would go on to write a further five sequels. Image
Dune is a multi-layered story and a hugely immersive novel. It's about a future where the mind rather the computer is king, aided by the mysterious spice melange. It also has more feuding houses than Game of Thrones. Image

ज़िन्दगी के...
कमरों में अँधेरे
लगाता है चक्कर
कोई एक लगातार;
आवाज़ पैरों की देती है सुनाई
बार-बार....बार-बार,
वह नहीं दीखता... नहीं ही दीखता,
किन्तु वह रहा घूम
तिलस्मी खोह में ग़िरफ्तार कोई एक,
भीत-पार आती हुई पास से,
गहन रहस्यमय अन्धकार ध्वनि-सा
अस्तित्व जनाता (1/9)
अनिवार कोई एक,
और मेरे हृदय की धक्-धक्
पूछती है--वह कौन
सुनाई जो देता, पर नहीं देता दिखाई !
इतने में अकस्मात गिरते हैं भीतर से
फूले हुए पलस्तर,
खिरती है चूने-भरी रेत
खिसकती हैं पपड़ियाँ इस तरह--
ख़ुद-ब-ख़ुद
कोई बड़ा चेहरा बन जाता है,
स्वयमपि (2/9)

11 Tips To Help You Finish That Online Course(s) That You Have Been Struggling To Complete:

1. Write your intention(s) to study down, preferably on a physical notebook. Writing it down tricks your mind into committing. Your head can forget, alot.

A thread.
2. Pro-tip: If the course(s) you are taking can be learnt from your mobile phone, then learn from your phone instead of the laptop. The phone is much more flexible, and whatever free time you get, you can easily squeeze in some study time compared to the laptop.
3. If you have multiple courses to learn, don't, and I repeat, don't study concurrently. Resist the temptation to think you will finish faster that way. Pick one course and stick with it to the end, you'll be even more inspired to start the next one.

I’ve made many mistakes in life, some very preventable. But I must have done something right to have a friend like @DJSugi.

Deirdre and her husband Chris are healthcare heroes, making masks and distributing them to people who need them—including me.

#SaturdayMotivation #COVID19
Deirdre is an author, librarian, and grassroots activist who advocates for voting rights, particularly on the local level in Georgia. In this pandemic crisis, she and Chris are part of the #ShieldAthens initiative. Check it out at shieldathens.net.

#coronavirus #WearAMask
Deirdre also wrote a moving essay for @laureneoneal’s and my Empty the Pews: Stories of Leaving the Church, about the abuse she experienced from her fundamentalist father and at the Christian reform school in the Dominican Republic he sent her to

CAN YOU SAY YOU ARE FULFILLED?

Many people say, I can do this even without being paid for it, it is my passion, it is my talent, I am good at drawing, I am good at writing, I am good at singing, I can drum naturally etc. but their reality is far from what they think. 1/7
Do you know that based on scientific research, the moon does not have a light of it's own but shines through the light reflected on it from the Sun. In the same way, your fullfilment in life is guaranteed, only if you align yourself with the activities that correlate with 2/7
Your talent and passion.

In the last few days, I have honoured many requests from colleagues and friends on managing their social media events. In my little capacity, I have been able to achieve 100% success, connecting some of the organisers to their audience.. 3/7

A Very Sexy Beginner's Guide to BDSM Words. ... Since all that terminology can be intimidating for newcomers, let's start with the basics: “BDSM” stands for bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism

1* Hair Pulling

You might have already started this BDSM 1.0 level play: Hair pulling. A lot of people reach for the hair automatically in the throes of the passion.

Miette suggests hair pulling as a good way to start getting into kinky play. #SaturdayThoughts #Ashawo
It’s easy, doesn’t require any toys, and can be as gentle or as rough as you want it to be.

Of course this (like every other type of BDSM play) requires conversation before doing it. Don't just jump in and yank on someone's hair. #SaturdayThoughts #Ashawo #SaturdayMotivation

1/Trump's lawyers are req'd (& expected) to answer his Impeachment Trial summons later today, meanwhile McConnell is holding his cards close to the vest, letting few-even in his own conference-know exactly how he plans to run the trial. He may try to limit the actual # of trial
2/days, so that if Sens use all their debate time it could mean mean fewer calendar days for the trial & a faster verdict. Clinton’s trial ran for five weeks, with opening arguments starting a week after it formally began. Trump's could be far shorter if MM has his way.
3/Nothing has been firmly decided, and the resolution is still being written, the fact that the GOP is still debating the logistics of the trial demonstrate how few people-even GOP-are clued into what McConnell has in store for the Sen. #SaturdayMotivation politico.com/news/2020/01/1…

As #SpaceForce is showing off its new uniforms today let's look back at the history of a genuinely iconic EVA space suit: the Apollo A7L! #SaturdayMotivation
A spacesuit is an astronaut's personal spacecraft. It duplicates all the systems of a spacecraft in miniature. Without it an astronaut would be dead within 20 seconds.
An EVA spacesuit has to do a lot of jobs: it protects against the vacuum of space, provides air for breathing, helps to force air into the lungs, expels carbon dioxide, regulates temperature and protects against radiation and micrometeoroids.

How do various folks use the word "disgusting" on Twitter? We looked at a month or so (2019-12-01 - 2020-01-07) of recent tweets containing "disgusting" to find out; here are some observations. #SaturdayMotivation

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote We classified the accounts with recent "disgusting" tweets into #resistance/#BlueWave, #MAGA, and "other" categories based on the hashtags used in their profiles. We excluded accounts with no profile hashtags. 29.5% appear to be political; slightly more are left-wing than right.
@ZellaQuixote Next, we ran sentiment analysis on the tweets containing "disgusting". Unsurprisingly, the scores average highly negative (around -0.5), but the political accounts' "disgusting" tweets consistently score more negative than those from non-political accounts.

This is a very real concern. As a survivor of fundamentalist religion—far from the worst of it as far as that goes—when I hear “parents’ rights,” I don’t think of e.g. protecting LGBTQ parents in custody battles.

I think of parents indoctrinating and abusing kids with impunity.
Because “religious freedom,” of course.

I got a Christian school education heavy on the young earth creationism, sexual shaming, and right-wing authoritarian politics.

I was spanked at home with a wooden spoon, and in elementary at school there was a paddle. I never got paddled
Some got it a lot worse.

Homeschooling is often used to cover extreme psychological, physical, and sexual abuse, usually justified by fundamentalist Christianity.

People like @RLStollar and @ashleymeaster can tell you stories.

If you are aiming to become anything (trader perse) the first thing you need is passion. Without passion, you will not be able to go far. You will soon run out of self-motivating fuel.

I've an idea.

All politicians should be paid directly from the people through something similar to PayPal with a max contribution cap like campaign donations.

Let's level the playing field by including ALL business, lobbyists, corporations, religious and ALL other organization
And we can pay as we go. If we do not like what your standing for we can cease payment.

This in addition to #TermLimits

They work for us.

Let US be directly in charge of their pay.

Happy #FibonacciDay everybody!

Well I say everybody, but not everyone likes maths. But what about cool 80s maths like fractals? The Mandlebrot Set can be created in a few lines of computer code. But what are fractals?

Today in pulp I look at the Devil’s Polymer…
Benoît Mandelbrot was born in Poland and educated at the Paris Polytechnique. He was also fascinated by Johannes Kepler, the 17th century ‘father of planetary motion,’ and followed a more eclectic scientific journey that eventually took him to MIT and then IBM.
Like Kepler, Mandlebrot was interested in mathematical patterns, particularly the irregular mathematical shapes found in nature. From studying Zipf’s Power Laws to visualising telephone interference patterns his meandering studies led to his key insight: the fractal.

Mark Hardin is a one-man strike force against corruption. Orphaned at the age of four, he was brought up mean and hungry. He learned his fighting skills in Vietnam, befire returning to an America gone bad...
Actually The Penetrator is one of a long list of vigilante pulp heroes thrown up in the 1970s counter-counterculture backlash, along with The Destroyer, The Butcher and The Executioner to name but a few.

WHY THE DEVAS AND ĀSURAS BATTLE ARE NOT ABOUT GOOD VS EVIL?

THE DEVA-ĀSURA GOOD VS EVIL PARADIGM IS AN ABRAHAMIC GOD-SATAN IDIOTIC NOTION

PURĀNAS ARE FAR MORE COMPLEX, BEAUTIFUL, NON DUALISTIC

THE ABRAHAMIC LENS CORRUPTS THE ENTIRE INTERPRETATION

#SaturdayMotivation
Vedic thought explains the complexity of the universe and it sees the simultaneous unity AND diversity in things.

Foolish minds are blind to the grey and only see the grey. Even more foolish are those who think everything is grey. Wise see the black, white and the grey.
To see simultaneously the black, white and the grey is to be able to see simultaneously the unity and diversity in things. This is what Vedic thought is about.

For instance those who see ONLY black and white are the kind of people who think all murderers are bad and such

Love yourself first!

The big problem today is that most people don’t love themselves. Society never teaches that it is possible to love ourselves. Understand that unless you love yourself, you cannot possibly love another person.

#love #selflove #nithyananda #Inspiration
Only when you lose yourself to yourself can you lose yourself to others. We are taught that we can only love even ourselves if we have a reason. If we perform well, we love ourselves.

#selflove #love #nithyananda #InspirationalQuotes #WeekendWisdom #SaturdayMotivation
If we fail, we hate ourselves. We apply the same logic to others. We love them only because of something, never without a cause or a reason.

1. Comparing “killing 310,000 Democrats & freeing their Black slaves” to “freeing babies alive from the womb” is the weirdest civil war threat I’ve seen from the Right.

But I’d be remiss not to point out that right-wing Christian ideologues do regularly draw a direct line here.
2. Christian Right gaslighting often takes the form of claiming the legacy of historical victories everyone now agrees are good things (and taming their radicalism in the process—see white evangelicals quoting Martin Luther King, for example).

But it gets weirder.

#EmptyThePews
3. Right-wing Christians love to claim they’d have been on the right side of history w/o ever having to question or challenge their own privilege in any way. Thus they assert a parallel between freeing slaves and fighting Hitler on the one hand, and opposing abortion on the other
