To celebrate the release of The Hobbit this month, Kerry Shawcross and Chris Demarais, two of Rooster Teeth’s producers, will do in six days what took Frodo and Sam three movies to complete. They will walk the 120+ mile journey across New Zealand from the filming location of Hobbiton in Matamata to the filming location of Mount Doom, Mount Ngauruhoe. They will sleep on the ground, cross rivers, and of course, eat Lembas Bread.
Documenting the entire journey on video, Kerry and Chris will prove that one does simply walk into Mordor.

Noam Chomsky on education (1989 lecture)

It wasn’t until late college/grad school that I bothered to think critically about the educational system I had just spent the last 15+ years of my life immersed in. At the time I was interested in social psychology and I read about Milgram’s “obedience to authority” experiment, John Taylor Gatto’s critique of compulsory education, and others like it.  Finally I started to ask hard questions. I wondered if it was even possible for a modern day Plato or Aristotle to come out of our school systems. I regretted my willingness to blindly obey my teachers and school administration, and I thought about the implications of that at mass scale. Certainly I don’t think all schools are bad, or all teachers are consciously supporting this institution, but I absolutely do believe we’re doing it wrong.
