Top of the Pops original broadcast
In 1999, audiences were flooded with teen movies and TV shows that would become modern classics. The world seemed to belong to high schoolers: She’s All That, American Pie, and Varsity Blues ruled theaters, while Dawson’s Creek, Party of Five, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer reigned on TV. But there was one show that debuted that year, Freaks and Geeks, that came and went with hardly a mainstream peep. Its cast was full of unknown actors, its characters weren’t “hot” in any conventional sense, and they weren’t wearing whipped cream bikinis or fighting demons.

I recently had an in-car conversation with my nephew about WW II. He wanted to know what possessed Hitler to attack the Soviet Union. We ended up talking a little bit about geopolitics, and the role that oil & gas reserves played in Germany’s decision to turn against its ally. The conversation was very general, because I had few concrete facts or sources to give him. I promised that I would do some research and send him some links.
Upon my return home, I fired up google and started browsing around about geopolitics. I happened upon a Wikipedia article that discussed a book written by Aleksandr Dugin called “The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia”. What I discovered was both amazing and frightening. I strongly urge you to go and read the (relatively short) article in full.
A rather lame version. Although I do like Echo and the Bunnymen
