director Stanley Kubrick http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000040/

I knew Kubrick created " Eyes Wide Shut" but it was not until recently that I learned he also exposed adrenochrome in his "Clockwork Orange" movie. 

(He stops staring at 0:26)

"Drenchrom" is written on the wall behind him.  Adrenochrome is often mixed with milk (or water) so it can go undetected. 

The Korova Milk Bar (korova is Russian for "cow") appears in the novel and film A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. It is a twisted version of a milk bar, that serves milk laced with drugs ("moloko plus"). The protagonist and narrator Alex lists some of the fictitious ingredients one can request: vellocet(Russian for amphetamines), synthemesc (synthetic mescalines), drencrom (adrenochrome). For the ingredient drencrom, he uses the phrase (drink the milk) "with knives in it," as it "would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence".[1] By serving milk instead of alcohol, the bar is able to serve minors. In the film, the bar has furniture in the shape of naked women[2] and the milk is served from their nipples.

In A Clockwork Orange, while Alex undergoes the Ludovico technique, Malcolm McDowell’s calm, literary voiceover tells us that “it’s funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.” And albeit with a slightly different meaning, David Cronenberg said something similar in Videodrome: “Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television.”

That last link also goes into Kubrick's "The Shining"

His voice quavers. “Tony… I’m scared…” (More so than in any other scene in the film, Danny is acting as a sort of audience surrogate and spokespiece. We’re scared too, kid.) And then “Tony” responds:

It’s just like pictures in a book, Danny. It isn’t real.

I love the idea of the Overlook Hotel apparitions being comparable to “pictures in a book” – or, to take the analogy to an even more self-referential level, to frames in a film. One of the great things about The Shining is how ambiguous the film is about whether the eerie goings on are inherent to the house in how it has retained shadows and echoes of its disturbing past, or whether it’s primarily in the heads of the tense and isolated Torrance family. But what is quite clear is that the two girls, the blood in the elevator, the inhabitant of room 237, etc. are just harkening back to past traumas (whether literally, in the case of the Gradys, or more metaphorically). They’re only images, and in a physical sense, they’re harmless.

And yet we don’t cut to the “Monday” title card right after Tony speaks. “It isn’t real”.
 But the look on that Danny gives the camera for the next three seconds is anything but reassured.

He understands the nature of what he’s seen, but on some instinctual level, this five-year-old child also knows that even images, thoughts, and memories have deep implications and great power. What he’s seen may not be real, but his fear certainly is. Very few of Kubrick’s decisions, whether visual or editorial, are random or without significance. These three seconds serve to show us how Danny feels, but they also provide the scene with its deepest meaning. Danny’s expression completes the idea of which Tony’s line was only the first half.


see this rug under Danny as he rides his bike?

watch this video's opening sequence until 0:17
Not all who wander are lost....

The baby is sacrificed to nimrod/baal/moloch. This is why semiramis/isis hates mankind.

Semiramis was also Nimrod's mother. What word does Jennifer Lawrence use in the first seen to call out for him?

New Seth Rogan special on Netflix is completely laced with programming, and I'm reminded of this post from a supposed celebrity handler...http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message2945015/pg7#52028619

Does this even need decoding?
