Forbidden civics: 2006's final error message

“Are you mistaking? What’s wrong about here? You are seeking for trouble.seek_213570.jpg (Sorry, that section of the site is inaccessible from the web.) Why are you lossing temper? You said the net is unbreakable, why it’s broken? All ill-fated jinxes have come. (Don’t be upset. Sometimes this happens on the Internet. It’s not bad luck.) All fanciness are posted outside. I’ll throw all the stuffs away, see how you get out. (Don’t worry, it’s easy to get back on track. Perhaps you can find what you wanted here.) I don’t mean to play on you this time, really can’t help. (Sometimes directories are closed for surfing. It’s not your fault.) How come in such period of time? Do it just over there, really trouble maker… (It only takes a second to go back to the home page, friend.)”

“Let’s lay it right on the line. Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today. But, unlike a team of costumed super-villains, they can’t be halted with a punch in the snoot, or a zap from a ray gun. The only way to destroy them is to expose them—to reveal them for the insidious evils they really are. The bigot is an unreasoning hater—one who hates blindly, fanatically, indiscriminately. If his hang-up is black men, he hates ALL black men. If a redhead once offended him, he hates ALL redheads. If some foreigner beat him to a job, he’s down on ALL foreigners. He hates people he’s never seen—people he’s never known—with equal intensity—with equal venom. Now, we’re not trying to say it’s unreasonable for one human being to bug another. But, although anyone has the right to dislike another individual, it’s totally irrational, patently insane to condemn an entire race—to despise an entire nation—to vilify an entire religion. Sooner or later, we must learn to judge each other on our own merits. Sooner or later, if man is ever to be worthy of his destiny, we must fill out hearts with tolerance. For then, and only then, will we be truly worthy of the concept that man was created in the image of God–a God who calls us ALL—His children.”
~ Stan Lee, 1965

“I’m more and more interested in Godard’s idea that not much matters except dealing with the present moment, that when you look at history, you’ve got to refract it through your awareness of the present. I mean, I’m interested in history, and here I am talking about biopics, but I don’t want to run from the present. And the idea of time-travel through CGI feels like a magic trick that might be an evasion of other issues. Besides, I like working with real actors in real spaces. Can’t help it.”
