Transhumanism & Living Forever - Technocalyps pt.1

This clip is the intro to Techocalyps, the word was coined by combining Technology and Apocalypse. I think that if what the intro to this documentary is true. People will eventually pursue getting getting Cyborg implants, the way you go buy a pair of sunglasses or a necklace as accessories.

This video opens some basic questions to morality. Do we have the right to impose people to be as they are , if they are diseased? At what time do we say that being imperfect is OK? These scientists are very optimistic about trans-humanism, but I'm scared that with the advent of DNA, nano technology and AI converging. Won't we lose the very essence of what makes us human by mixing other animals DNA with/without nanotechnology?

I'm curious what others out there think. Do yo think the people in this clip are too optimistic? What are the down sides of of this merging of various sciences into our daily life? How do you see people interacting in the future? Is there less crime? What about free will, do we still have it if doctors can take out genes that cause problems?

This has to be my favorite film this year! I've seen a lot of average films and this exceeds all of them

Cowboys & Aliens - Spike Guys Choice Awards Sneak Peek

This film looked so good in the trailers, but when I saw the film in the theater, I found it very bland and 2 dimensional. Save your money when you see this film, if you see it see it for free.

Analogue Solutions Vostok Demo (Kind of...)

Found this great Demo on Youtube by a user who used the Vostok in a Aggrotech style peice. Pretty cool song. Most demos are of guys who only know how to do bleeps ans blips, not very interesting to watch.

FLA Mindphazer (Single Mix) Cleopatra

One of few bands I respect is Front Line Assembly. Their Electro-Industrial music I really enjoy listening too. I thought I might share a video I enjoy watching a lot lately here with you.

The movie used for the video is Cleopatra, a late '70s' science fiction film.

Access Virus Ti - A short song

A good demo of the Access Virus TIs' abilty

In my opinion the Virus is one of those must have synths for a studio.especially if you do dance or trance. I've noticed this synth being used by Nine Inch Nails' Frontman and founding member of How To Destroy Angels' Trent Reznor and the 80's band Depeche Mode. Indeed other users of the Access Virus include Combichrist, Sasha, Hans Zimmer and Gary Numan.
