“D I V O R C E” – Disseminating COLLAPSE’S Latest Spaztastic Social Critique

“Divorce,” the short video piece by director Kelly Broich (who may also be one of the strangest satirists working today), featuring Fran Valentine and Eli Elliott, is yet another astute critique of one of our social institutions. I don’t know, but after watching this video I fear that by the time the Collapse cult is through with us we’ll be stripped of all our illusions (and clothes) and forced into a nude identity-crisis.  This time the folks at Collapse have chosen to challenge one of our culture’s oldest and most sacred institutions, marriage.

Valentine repeats “Divorce, divorce, divorce” over and over again until the word seems to lose all meaning, though the emotional significance to the viewer is undoubtedly striking. The word divorce is practically a demonic word to many. Nobody likes saying it or hearing it, but hearing it reiterated in this way, combined with the short looped minimalist electronic soundtrack, achieves the effect of reminding us that it’s just a fucking word like any other.

Near the end the video flashes to an artfully done experimental fight montage consisting of quick choppy cuts showing Elliott and Valentine in a kitchen, and ends with the strong yet simple statement, “Get the fuck out of my house!” — definitively bitch-slapping  two-hundred thousand years of patriarchal oppression. On a subjective level,  roughly fifty percent of viewers will relate to being trapped like a caged lunatic in an asylum of marital dysfunction.  

Today over half of all marriages end in divorce.  The rest in death. Divorce is a pandemic sweeping our country like mouth herpes. The chart to the left cites the most common reasons for divorce.

However, not all hope is lost. There exists an effective tool for fixing nearly any relationship, no matter how far gone. I’m talking about the how-to book entitled The Magic of Making Up, which can be purchased for thirty-nine dollars at http://www.magicofmakingup.com.

Other books make ridiculous claims, but none of them really do the trick. The methods found in The Magic of Making Up are based on years of exhaustive, peer-reviewed, focus grouped research in the field of relationship repair. I bought this book last year and it was worth every cent. I have never felt more loved.  

Don’t let divorce rip apart your marriage and drive you to drink or into a second-marriage which will statistically probably end in divorce. Remember life is short—YOU ARE GOING TO DIE—just like most of today’s marriages. I highly recommend watching “Divorce” with your mate to remind them of what can happen.

  1. You can create lines of dferfient widths, lengths and angle directions with the line drawing tool. Photoshop can display lines at any angle and can be specified to the 10th decimal

  2. a few weeks ago about how he was worried he would have to pay at least 50% on his taxes where he was threatening to leave his show on FOX News. Frankly, I may want to see Billo still stay on the air since it gives late night comedians more material.Now, I doubt I’ll ever be a millionaire in my lifetime because I have actually crunched down the numbers on savings for retirement online calculators, and it doesn’t seem like they add up to 1 million dollars, even as I diligently contribute small amounts of money every day to my IRA savings account. It’s much like that link I posted a few weeks ago on ROFR regarding kleptocracy and how it would take the average human roughly 92 or more years of work in order to make $1 million.Also, I’d like to see more comments here on ROFR such as this post, so G, Jon in MD, buggywhipper, etc.? Where are you all on most of these posts? – Not to mention I haven’t seen Mara posting any comments in the past few months. I shouldn’t just have to see some people occasionally posting that there aren’t enough comments. So, let’s get discussing more on these ROFR posts and videos! Hopefully the podcasts haven’t necessarily been distracting people away from commenting.

  3. But, the major reason behind our resistance to no-problem goes further than quibbling over whether rates are somewhat decreased in states that embrace the QuotesChimp. In Accordance With J. John Rogue, leader of NICO, great no-flaw laws, like Mi’s, that spend unending medical and treatment costs, usually do not reduce prices. Such regulations could even increase them decently. But Seeker consideres it’s a great trade off, as does Customers Partnership, which consideres that great no-flaw laws provide more gains for exactly the same price more rapidly. Our resistance comes from our firmly held values that no-problem just will not deal with principal explanations for why car insurance premiums have gotten therefore out of control. The truth is that the governmental initiatives for the insurance market are a really smoke display built to hide the heavy and abiding requirement for essential change in the car insurance sector and also additional facets of state-law. In our view, after that, simply essential change is the actual secret to long-term charge of car insurance premiums.

  4. The Md QuotesChimp Account. The state-of Md includes circumstances-backed insurance business for those that can’t otherwise get policy contract. The coverage is managed from the condition but personal insurance company got to subsidize deficits from your account, that they could be recovered by their particular customers.
