Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
On the latest episode of the Land of Confusion Show, I fly solo while I talk to Titus Techera and Gary McVey about everything wrong with culture today. Titus (Teetus), is a long-known member of the site, once known for getting in lots of arguments with people on the boards. We start the show by expressing our mutual for his homeland’s greatest program, “Comrade Detective.”
We then get into a deep dive into internet culture, social media, and even how Ricochet has changed over the years. That we all feel good that we met and interacted in the early days when people were not so angry. We also spent a great deal of time talking about conservative culture, in both film and in business, and how it’s our tendency to complain, instead of do.
We spend a fair bit of time talking about young people, especially young men are facing the most difficult times and how we all have to work to make things better for everyone.
And we talk about movies, and how they have changed. How it’s easier to make movies today and how, similar to different eras, the movies are. We spend a fair bit of time ruminating on how the ’70s reflect our modern age and how those gloomy times started with Dirty Harry and Apocalypse Now, but morphed eventually into the very hopeful Star Wars and Smokey and the Bandit.
So come down and explore the world of us, and American Film in the Land of Confusion.
