    OverTen Now-The Movie

    I hate being on vacation! Especially 2 weeks back to back. I can't wait to get back into the s***, and touch the DIAD....I love the smell of cardboard in the morning. In the tradition of the movie "Apocalypse Now"

    Cool ... definitely worth a look - Doors and Apocalypse Now with a disturbing blend of Brown.
    Just coolly disturbing.

    When I joined this forum I noticed that Tieguy reminded me of Col. Kurtz.

    ...probably the best post I have seen on this forum.

    Congrats to the OP.

    PS- you have to look deeply into the symbolism portrayed to truly appreciate the artistry.

    I found this little movie quite intriguing.Being a soldier in 'nam compared to not knowing whats in store every day as a driver,are somewhat similar except that that one little mistake could end up being your last over there.As a driver,that mistake could deprive you of your livelihood,which in todays economic times would be devastating to any young family.
    I couldn't help thinking....
    This is my diad,there are many like it,but this one is mine.My diad is my best friend,it is my life.I must master it as I must master my life....etc etc
    Gazoo,I'm sure this was done tongue in cheek,but it has a certain darkness that stinks of gasoline and unbridled depression.
    Great post~!:sad-very:

    I hope no one thought I was disparaging the OP, not at all. My assessment was that I figured disturbing was the message. Not being able to connect the horrors of a battle field to my experiences as a UPS driver is due to my never having been in the military. I can only imagine the mental images that a veteran gets. I have no doubt that some of them are very disturbing.
