Da Sweet Blood of Jesus
is a sexy, hypnotic, dream-like re-telling of the
cult classic Ganja and Hess. Layered with a banging
sound track, Spike Lee offers a glimpse into the
lonely world of Dr. Green. An eccentric art
collector, Dr. Green finds himself catapulted into a
blood addicted existence. And in an act of supreme
selfishness, brings Ganja with him. But that's okay,
she's not exactly the most caring person in the
world. This film has that Spike Lee vibe from years
past. From the opening scene, I was snatched back in
time, I'm talking almost thirty years ago when we
couldn't wait for the next Spike Lee joint to drop. I
miss those days. Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is a good
film. Artsy to say the least, but it works with the
topic at hand. Oh, it even has Lee's signature
still-motion camera pan; or what ever he calls it.
Just plain cool. I recommend this one, family.
The above pic is a captured frame from the movie. It was clipped from the screening page. I figured ya'll might like the All-Seeing-Eye...

As a creator, I'm always looking for other artistic expressions, worlds, characters, etc. Except if said idioms are the product of external based creators, then I'm flat out not interested. Creators are really explorers. We look to: movies, comics, novels, music, etc, as a means to visit new realities. I mean humans by nature are curious. That's why the arts are so important to us as a species. Art is a doorway to someplace else.
Nakiwaoobake is an Internal Based Creator. He dreams entire realities. His constructs are rich and original. His expression is pure and powerful. The experiencer is allowed to 'see' a multiverse with universal themes. Past present and future have no meaning in the western sense, but is presented in Dreamtime in scope and vision.
I know ya'll think I'm playing, so you need to check it out for yourself.
Fully realized characters, worlds, and cultures are found in Bounty-X Minddar! This is an ancient tale. This is Dark Matter Speculative Fiction at its best. This is that stuff that only an Internal Based Creator could bring.
The above pic is a door. Open it and explore.
For the external based creator, this means nothing to you because you simply regurgitate what you have been told is acceptable, so carry on, there is nothing to see here. lol.
One of my favorite creators is doing his thing! A bunch of years ago, I corresponded with this brotha via Hero Talk. His work was entitled Bounty-X, and his style was distinctive and awesome.
Over at Black Science Fiction Society, Nakiwa-oobake dropped episodes one and two of Bounty-X Minddar. Bounty-X is probably one of the most self-contained, immersive worlds I have had the pleasure of experiencing. I'm looking forward to more. Take a look at episode one.
