Review: The Matrix – Resurrections

If you’re like me and was coming of age when the first Matrix dropped in 1999, this was more than just a film. It was a paradigm shifting experience. From the storyline – a reality bending what-if, to special effects never before seen on the big screen, and a theme that would later lead me to question the very existence I knew which – is still evident today, in my adult career as a journalist. It was complete with the perfect pairing of angry, thought-proving, tracks from Rage Against the Machine.

SPOILER ALERTS!

By now, most of you have probably seen at least the first of the original Matrix trilogy. But if you haven’t – I suggest you stop reading now.

Trump, Biden, OJ Simpson. What?

At the risk of sounding crass, insensitive and terse, I’m going to simplify why the Biden presidency is going to happen – whether you like it or not; the Trump campaign is bringing knives into a nuclear war. Here’s what I mean.

Remember the OJ trial? America was riveted. The infamous glove, the Bruno Mali shoes, the blood spatter, the history of domestic violence, and of course – Ron and Nicole’s bodies — slain and left at the scene.

All the signs of murder were pretty self-evident, after ruling out murder suicide. Then, all signs pointed to OJ as the killer. By most people’s estimation from the evidence found at the scene and subsequent sites of investigation, most people believe(d) OJ did it. But do you remember the ruling in that criminal case? ‘Not guilty.’

Rest in Peace Ed Schultz – You will be missed.

I’ve struggled all day to find the right words to say about the passing of  Ed Schultz.

What can I say? Ed was a larger than life character.

He was bold, brash, fearless and kind. He was always so quick on his toes, charming and witty. Most of all, as a journalist, he was honest and brave. Ed did things his own way and wouldn’t allow the corporate news machine to eat his soul. I had the great honor of working directly with Ed for over 2.5 years, every single night. He became not only a dear friend but a mentor. I’ve learned so much about inside politics, TPP, TTIP, unions, the list goes on… Ed took no shit from anybody but always welcomed the discourse. He was magnetic on air.

Big Eddie, thank you for entrusting me with your show night after night. The airwaves will never be the same without you.
