The Cinema of the Future

The Cinema of the Future

Welcome to Future Views Magazine

We are all going to die

Our world will end

Let us say 'bye bye'

Or? Can we amend?




  Halloween 2019  



England has raised her anchors and sails, she’s awa’ tae a gran’ new place

Scotland has bought many thousan’ ae rockets, we’ll heave oorsel’s aff intae space

Jibe at the Germans, f**t at the French, Danes and Dutch be dammed

We dinnae need none o’ yous, we’re better aff wi’out a’ you, our li’l ol’ island is crammed

From out o’ the glacier the "Iceman" rose, he revealed an interesting tale

Since earliest times we’ve criss-crossed our lands, oft in the name of a sale

“I’ll join you for dinner” “fetch your children” without making first an agreement

Does that sound fair? Do you know what to expect? Understanding brings surely ennoblement

“J’aime La France,” “Deutschland ist schön,” “L’Italia e molto belissimo”

Am I truly to believe my future and yours is nowt but roulette in a casino?





America welcomes us with open arms, the Russians could eat us for breakfast

Warmongers are eager to buy up our arms, India is poised to move fast

Once upon a time knights rode the realms, peasants fought beside them to conquer

Our world today is a fragile web, a mistake and we all drown together

The Super Rich may think they are safe, "It's a game and a sport to exploit"

When a nation's professionals are stripped of their homes who knows where their daggers will point

D-Day won us our last great crisis, years of preparation and a jolly big surprise

We (just) won the war, but look what followed? It's the 'Other Side' who today holds 'The Prize'.





Mountains and coastlines, cities and forests, whaddya mean, "we'll sever all ties"?

"We'll break from Europe without a plan!" Does that sound to you clever or wise?

A 'Hidden Agenda'? Secret agreement? Is the truth that our leaders are stuck?

Or "Mushroom Management" that established tradition, "keep 'em in the dark 'n' chuck in some muck"?

"NEW AGREEMENTS" the time is ripe, the "Union of Crowns" and the EEC

1707, 1971, wars and revolutions, can nobody see?

A vision for society, new structures and strength? No chance of that if the Dark Hand rules

Industrialisation: a weapon of exploitation? Is "Utopia" nowt but a fantasy for fools?





"Bye Bye Europe" the people have spoken, pipers and drums lead us into the mist

Cannon, claymor, florin and groat, Trafalgar and Charlie - now history's new twist?

Raise the draw-bridge, portcullis the tunnel, re-invent parliament, banking and trade?

Seize our chance to start afresh, before long "those foreigners" will beg us for aid?

Scour the world, examine the books, our brand new land many nations will enrich

United States, hundreds of countries, they'll flock to our isles to learn from our switch

England "The Capital" for the study of language, Ireland for literature, diplomacy and negotiation

Wales the heart for all the world's music, Scotland The Centre for Quality And Evaluation.*

    Westminster must surely be the only government in global history to have, in effect, imposed sanctions against her own country.





Postscript 2021:

It’s Boris’ Cabinet Meeting, bring champagne! Whiskey! Gin!

“Agenda: get yersel’ sozzled,” says the PM with a mischievous grin

It’s an ordinary workaday event, how dare you say anything’s amiss

What better way to seal an agreement than to give your colleagues a kiss

Bring your lovers and mistresses, your dogs are welcome too

Cheers to a snog and a cuddle, wink wink at the bathroom queue

Overwear, underwear, blouses and trousers, the cleaners’ll pick it all up

We’re dancing outside in the sunshine to celebrate our ’66 World Cup


"Britain is the laughing stock of the world"   -   "Embarrassed to be British"

Rick & Euan (fail to) Save The World

“When the white man builds a house in the sky his world will be rolled away.”

(Lame Deer)

Has the time not come?

If the Indian prophet, Lame Deer (who correctly predicted television) is right, by now we ought to have already been replaced by ferrel fields and sprawling forests free of human life.


Do we have a choice or a chance, is The End indelibly etched into the destiny of Earth and the spirit of mankind?



Perception Description Repetition Reaction

What is truth? What is 'Reality'? Who do we believe and why?


Some say that it is just so. Enjoy what life you have for soon it may be eclipsed.

“If we gotta go, we go,” best not to think about it.

What does your life experience suggest?

Have you struggled, strived and achieved?

Can we, collectively, not do the same?

If so, then what?

What is it gets us expelled?

What is it that might get us all expelled from earth?

Is that it?


Whatever it is, Future Views Magazine features light reading that examines such questions.


Imagine if every windowsill carried a beautiful flower box. The Flower Box Solution
a simple formula for making our cities greener and more pleasant.

What happened to the mighty “World Changing Revolution” of the ’Sixties when Flower Power was going to vanquish war and bring eternal happiness to one and all?

Curious how quickly we forget.

The only revolution in today's world appears to be comprised of gurus who tell us they know what it means to be rich. More desperate than hopeful, thousands send them money in order to be encouraged to believe that their lives, too, can be transformed from destitution to abundance.

Loneliness and debt, homelessness and addiction are matters for under-funded charities and volunteers.

Can we not see where we are, how we have changed?

Is our world truly better than before?

The problem is too big to tackle, let's leave it to the professionals, they know what they are doing. We are in safe hands, or are we?

World Map made out of flowers - Future Views Magazine


Can we dream, imagine and describe a better world?

Who knows, whatever, maybe there are solutions, what if there are pragmatic ways to make lives more pleasant?

No harm in trying?

Meantime, enjoy what we have, take a look, share a thought. Sometimes, it's best simply to entertain and let the troubles we hear too much about wash over us like ocean waves on the rocks of terra firma.

To such an end, meet Richard Whitehead and his friend, Euan Keith, they work together on a travelling film crew. They and others in the group discuss a variety of topics.

My mate Euan, Sir Keith's nephew and my assistant, got me the job as sound recordist.

Others on set include Brenda, Lotte, Eta, Tosh and Arri (so called because it is short for Arthur and also reflects his love of the Arriflex cameras).

Sir Keith funds the entire operation, or so he would have us believe.

His friend and business partner, Saleh el Moharbi undoubtedly has a lot to do with it as well.

Then there's Acey, Ed and Igvarts Lobermann from Lithuania or some other country, I think he's from a place I've never heard of.

That's us, sometimes we get together outside work, often we exchange barely more than a greeting.

Euan and I stumbled across evidence that pointed us towards a bizarre plot. Our two benefactors, Sir Keith and Saleh el Moharbi, are heavily implicated as being at the centre.
