    Wanted to create this to add some context to the Media Industrial Complex and how it functions without any real purpose, other than to continue to function.


    Take a look at this statue that was supposedly awarded to Orson Welles in 1942

    Made of gold-plated britannium on a black metal base, it is 13.5 in (34 cm) tall, weighs 8.5 lb (3.85 kg) and depicts a knight rendered in Art Deco style holding a crusader's sword standing on a reel of film with five spokes. The five spokes represent the original branches of the Academy: Actors, Writers, Directors, Producers, and Technicians.

    In 1928, MGM's art director Cedric Gibbons, one of the original Academy members, supervised the design of the award trophy by printing the design on a scroll. In need of a model for his statuette, Gibbons was introduced by his future wife Dolores del Río to Mexican film director and actor Emilio "El Indio" Fernández. Reluctant at first, Fernández was finally convinced to pose nude to create what today is known as the "Oscar".

    So what they are suggesting is that this statue is a nude Mexican (Spanish) knight holding a sword with both hands while standing on five rolls of film?

    Is this naked knight sworn to protect these actors, writers, directors, producers, and technicians?

    And why is the knight naked?

    Let's start with the first actor to receive this award, Emil Jannings.
    Two films, The Last Command (1928) and...

    The Way of All Flesh

    Movie, 1927

    In the story, which opens in the early 1900s, Jannings plays August Schiller, a bank clerk in Milwaukee who is happy with both his job and his family. But when bank officials ask him to transport $1,000 in securities to Chicago, he meets a blond seductress on the train, who sees what he is carrying. She flirts with him, convinces him to buy her a bottle of champagne, and takes him to a saloon run by a crook. The next morning he awakes alone in a dilapidated bedroom, without the securities. He finds the woman, and at first pleads with her, then intimidates her to return the stolen securities. He is knocked unconscious by the saloon owner and dragged to a nearby railroad track.

    As the crook strips him of everything that might lead to his identification, Schiller recovers consciousness, and in a struggle the crook is thrown into the path of an oncoming train and killed. Schiller flees, and in despair is about to take is own life, when he sees in a newspaper that he is supposedly dead, the crook's mangled body having been identified as Schiller's. The time passes to twenty years later. Schiller is aged and unkempt, employed to pick up trash in a park. He sees his own family go to a cemetery and place a wreath on his grave. Following other scenes in a Christmas snowstorm, Schiller makes his way to his former home, where he sees that the son whom he had taught to play violin is now a successful musician. He walks away, carrying in his pocket a dollar that his son has given him, not recognizing that the old tramp is his father.

    Without extending this too much, just have a look at the following images, as the saying goes:

    "A picture is worth a thousand words"





    Connections can often be made, but some come without too much effort and seemingly ask to be made, even beg to be seen.

    The first award was given to an actor that portrays the life of a person that was once a bank employee, responsible for carrying around and protecting the treasures of the bank, only to later lose his trade, identity, and family after being robbed of his possessions and treasures.

    This is an image of the Federal Reserve Bank Chicago (click to enlarge)


    This is and image of the "Treasury" (or Treasury of Pharaoh) in Petra, Jordan (click to enlarge)


    All the faces and many of the statues are damaged and missing, while the rest of this structure seems "untouched".

    Don't get seduced into a trap, Media is Big Business and the Treasury creates these forms of distractions to seduce and steal, while eroding the identities and lives of those that cannot see past the front door.

    How much does it cost to watch TV these days?
