10'17 you can't make a show about sex that's intelligent TUNNEL
The day when Robin Williams died, Cerea Lynch on Christopher Ryan's Tangentially Speaking PODCAST
79:39 Chris: not that I'm an expert on any of this, but my advice would be, don't do anything unless you have creative control.
Cerea: exactly, yeah.
Chris: I mean, just this morning, I met with this guy over breakfast to talk about potentially doing a show about sexuality. and the reason he captured my interest is that he's got a plan where we would own everything.
and, you know, I think, if it's gonna be about sexuality – precisely because the culture is so fucked up around these issues – if you let any executive have any control, they're gonna make a mess, you know.
Cerea: right. they'd turn it like into a circus show.
Chris: yeah, it's gonna be sleazy... I met way back at the beginning – I don't know if I've told this story on the podcast before – but one of the very first people I met with about the possibility of doing a TV show – this was like two years ago – was one of the founders of HBO, and he was one of the guys who did the REAL SEX thing.
and he's no longer with HBO, he got like a 300 million $ buyout, you know, one of those guys.
and so I met with him in his office in New York, and he looked at the package I had...and all that stuff, and he said 'yeah, okay, well, you'll get on TV, and this looks good, and I like the episode summeries.'
but he said 'this will never work because your concept's wrong.'
'so what do you mean?'
he said 'well, you can't make a show about sex that's intelligent.'
seriously, that's what he said. I say 'what do you mean?'
he said 'if it's about sex, it's gotta be either like dry scientific professor talking about insect penises, or it's gotta be sweaty bodies slapping together, there is nothing in between.'
and we got into, you know, a respectful argument and I said 'I think you're wrong.
I think, that's exactly what the culture's hungry for right now.'
Cerea: and what it needs! totally.
Chris: anyway, and then he said 'name me one feature film in the last ten years that was about sex, one good film!'
and luckily I thought on one. I said 'American Beauty'. you've seen that? it's a great film.
and he said 'oh, it's not about sex.' dude!
Cerea: wasn't everything about sex, except sex, which is about power?
Chris: well, the other line is 'everything is about sex, except sex, which is about everything.'
that's an old psychologist quote."
exactly the same phenomenon like "9/11" – if I may add – the global strategy behind the murderous, volcano-like eruptions of skyscrapers in New York City live on TV. they'll either show you the most serious respectabilities plus popular screen gods and goddesses or the most crazy "conspiracy nuts" and doomsday prophets and nothing in between. the basic principle of civilization is still untouched till this day
10'17 @cearalynch @ChrisRyanPhD greatness in action. both of you.
I have transcribed the best part: TWEET thank you very much!
@cosmopinciotti "a gallery of different selves" – never thought of it that way.
So the goal wouldn't be to unify them, but just to coexist?
10'17 @OutreDragon no idea, it's new to me either.
but The Tao of Holding Space and a symbiotic use of language seem to be very close to each other
@OutreDragon "Self-hatred and self-love are equally self-centered."
it could be "the wonderful complexity of the self" needs a wider context
@OutreDragon in the sense of this sort of listening, I'd suggest TWEET Parker J. Palmer QUOTE let it flow...
"Today-9/11: REMEMBER those killed.
May we all stay vigilant and angry-united to defeat those infected w/the disease of Islamic extremism."
10'17 @MIntensity angry-united? forget it!
all believe what they want to believe, don't they. the question remains however, what do they really know?
Tell me, are you a pro-"9/11" man, Mr. Intensity? TWEET by firstname.lastname@example.org or use DM if you want
10'17 "each person's equivalence, identity and integrity...when we learn how to listen more deeply to others, we can listen more deeply to ourselves"
10'17 "different methods can work in a given situation but what matters most are the beliefs of the facilitator"
08'07 @DanielMezick sure it can be controlled. because the complexity is only relative to the simplicity of the minds trying to make sense of it. create a simple enough system and fill it with even simpler minds, and you will keep them puzzled for ages. that's what magicians do
10'17 @DanielMezick complexity's the sharpest weapon in the hands of any plumber of piety.
it's a shame how Terry McKenna ignored this simple fact

@cosmopinciotti His dreams lie in the fantastic. There too they shall die.
10'18 @lifessubatomic perhaps he is or was a sun... from a galaxy far far away. subatomically enchanted
@cosmopinciotti no, not that. but I may pick up aspects of craft again
10'18 @lifessubatomic he just came home after the job was done, okay?

There exists a diversity of players in the Social TV ecosystem, as the industry is open to experiments and is witnessing many tie-ups between broadcasters and social networking companies.
While some broadcasters are amalgamating Social TV within their own platforms, there are many, who are integrating Twitter into their Social TV platforms for enhanced custom experience and participation. Industry players such as BBC and CNN, on the other hand, have signed deals with social networking players such as Facebook, as social networking companies are aggressively trying to venture into this space."

10'20 @allisulli come on, this is ridiculous.
if love was such a courageous thing, people wouldn't do it. that's just another kitschy thing to say
"Everyone has blind spots and filters. Claiming you don't is disingenuous."
