It’s no secret I’m a big fan of the DUST YouTube channel. This binge-worthy series of short science fiction tales gives lovers of the genre bite-sized flicks that stretch the imagination without the need to stretch the attention span. One of their recent offerings is worth noting: Iteration 1 by Jesse Lupini and the creepy thought experiment it poses.
What if you woke up in a strange room and were set to die in 60 seconds. After you die, you wake up in the same bed in the same room, but the actions of your previous selves are still in play. Could you solve the problems each new room poses quickly, or would it take you a long time to understand how the game works?
Anna (Katharine Isabelle) finds herself in that very situation, stuck with a puzzle she didn’t want to solve with only her wits and previous lives to help her finish the game. Considering the movie is just over 12 minutes long, anything else I could say about it would be too much.
No need for deep analysis of a short film like this. Just watch it and be refreshed… until your next iteration takes over. Enjoy.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
