One of the reasons reality TV became so dominant was because people looked at time as being the metric. And the reason that reality TV works well for time is that the classic reality TV formula, in the beginning, was the tribal council and somebody getting eliminated. So you could have 50 percent of the show being boring filler and you’re kind of wanting to change the channel but you’re like, “Oh, but I wonder if my favorite person’s going to get eliminated.” So you have to watch to the end to see the elimination. In a way, that was a way of gaming time. You could look at that and say, “Oh, they spent an hour watching this show, including the commercials. That means it must be a really high quality show.” But it also might just mean that they figured out a hook that incentivizes you to watch to the end and then did a lot of mediocre content in the middle.

Omg this is perfect. 

Disclosure - I was about to go back to LA after a short trip, when I was offered a room in this big loft that I once sublet’ed in Brooklyn.

It’s huge.

So I took it. 

I have yet to spend a night there. I moved my stuff in and bailed.

Everything Ryan Holiday says about New York City is true. 

I might go actually stay there this weekend but I’m trying to come up with a plan to keep myself sane.

Photos from a 1972 Rothschild illuminati party

On 12/12/72 Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, member of the most powerful elite family in the world, held a Surrealist Ball at Château de Ferrières, one of the family’s gigantic mansions.

The invitation was written in reverse. It required a mirror to be read. Inversion is a big deal in a pseudo-satanic mind state.

Guy de Rothschild & Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, the hosts of the ball, wore a horned “giant’s head” with tears made from real diamonds.
