I was browsing Livejournal, and after just watching Reloaded for the 10,000 time i decided to see what LJ has to offer.
Obviously, i found this community, and i read This post
. Wow. The matrix has, again, amazed me. It baffles me how people can say that The Matrix was crap, the thinking behind it is just so deep on so many levels.
Also, the soundtrack of the matrix has its own significances. I am a huge fan of Rage against the machine, and their music appears at the end of the first, and second one. (probably the third, but i haven't saw it yet). But i think the first one was the obvious link. The song while Neo flys is called "Wake up". ( Check out the lyrics hereCollapse )
And if you type in "Wake up" to any good lyrics engine, you will find quite a few songs called "wake up". So why choose Rage? I think the following piece by Brian at RATM
is enough to suffice.
"Rage Against the Machine was one of the most influential bands of the 90s and remain
to this day, just because Zack left the band in no way means their music has died. Whether you're listening to their first album or the last album every word is still revelent today.
In no way are they telling you to go out into the streets, set them a blaze and demand change. They beg for you to begin to think for yourself, to not just accept things because MSNBC says so. open your mind, knowledge is power.
Well anyhoo, just a quick hello. Current Mood: thoughtful

Questions to answer in Matrix Revolutions
Let's have it... after seeing the 3rd Matrix what questions are unanswered?
Fair warning: I assume any discussion of the 3rd movie has to give something away so...SPOILERS AHEAD!

Unplug thy neighbor [Or. Start posting in the Community]
On the first Matrix film, the Princeton philosopher James Pryor posed the question What�s so bad about living in the Matrix?, and, after sorting through some possible answers, he concluded that the real problem probably has to do with freedom, or the lack of it If your ambitions in the Matrix are relatively small-scale, like opening a restaurant or becoming a famous actor, then you may very well be able to achieve them, Pryor says. But if your ambitions are large e.g., introducing some long-term social change then whatever progress you make toward that goal will be wiped out when the simulation gets reset. . . . One thing we place a lot of value on is being in charge of our own lives, not being someone else�s slave or plaything. We want to be politically free.
That question doesn't apply unless you have knowledge of there being an existence outside of the matrix, or at the very least that there is some outside force that will eventually negate everything that you've strived for.
Course, the Matrix is endearing just because it's so similar (and not at the same time) to life today .
Then again...I wonder what my mother is doing with the life she's draining away from me. Hurrah for being used as a battery. Current Mood: blank

Looking for creative people to write original Matrix short stories
I am in the midst of creating the ultimate Matrix website, with original content. The site is for Matrix fans, but will be different than any other Matrix site.
I am looking for people who would be interested in writing original short stories related to the Matrix. They must be completely original.
In return, I will post your story on the website and you will be given full credit, including you bio and image.
There is also a contest for the best stories: I will select a minimum of 10 short stories to be combined and put together in a book, which will be submitted for publishing. If the book is published, the winners will be given full credit, and compensation.
If you are interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time,
