It's not an asp.

Koyaanisqatsi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It is actually a very powerful movie. Some folks were very disturbed by it, looking shellshocked coming out of the theater.

It would be interesting to revisit it 25 years later to see what is says now, considering it foretold so much when it was made.

I guess. It didn't seem so at the time. There was much conversation about it. And as Shane said it has Hopi roots.

The more he can tie into his religion of all things car related, be it chair or key, the better he likes it. As we go forward, a patchy reference to a creed of life's balance is what's really needed for today's yout's at the seminal level.


I could do more but 7 per post seems to be my limit.
