Alles is ingepakt en klaar om te gaan. We hebben er echt zin in om vanaf morgen te beginnen met het opbouwen van wat een ongelofelijk gave Castlefest gaat worden!

- THE UP SERIES: It follows the lives of 14 children through their lives interviewing them every seven years. It’s amazing to see how they change and where they go. It shows that personality traits do not tend to be very static. Being introverted at 18 doesn’t determine how you’ll be at 32. A girl on there around 20 was totally against having a family and was very cynical about relationships and marriage. Next interview, she was happily wed with children. I link you to 7 UP, which is the first documentary in the series.
- QUEEN OF VERSAILLES:If you have any interest in the SUPER RICH of America and how absolutely delusional they can be, then this documentary will blow your mind. It’s a great window into the lives of people who literally have everything a person could need. Even when they loose everything, they’re entirely incapable of believing that they’re a normal citizen.
- THE ACT OF KILLING: One review describes it as: “This is the most gut-wrenching film I’ve ever seen. It actually makes you understand the nature and true face of evil, and it’s terrifying because it’s so, so normal. After watching it you know that in some other life, you could be him.”
- BABIES: It shows the different ways, different cultures raise their children. It shows how different but similar we all are at the end. They documentary follows 4 different babies, from Mongalia, to Tokyo, to Namibia and then the U.S
- INSIDE NORTH KOREA: An eye-opening film that shows you the truth about a hidden country
- TOUCHING THE VOID: A documentary about two mountain climbers who have an accident on their way back. As one review described it: “Better than any fictional suspense film. Just unreal. You know throughout that the two climbers lived because you’re sitting there watching them narrate, but at times you just can’t believe it.”
- THE COVE: A 2009 documentary film that analyzes and questions dolphin hunting practices in Japan. One review described it as “an impeccably crafted, suspenseful expose of the covert slaughter of dolphins in Japan.”
- THIS IS WHAT WINNING LOOKS LIKE: The documentary follows U.S. Marines as they train Afghan security forces, showing their ineptitude, drug abuse, sexual misconduct, and corruption as well as the reduced role of US Marines due to the troop withdrawal.
- BBC PLANET EARTH (All 11 Episodes): An HD exploration of our world. You’ll just love everything about this, trust me.
- JESUS CAMP: About a Christian summer camp, where children spend their summers being taught that they have “prophetic gifts” and can “take back America for Christ”. This documentary led to the shut down of this summer camp.

Grow your own.
You have to push yourself further than you are comfortable with if you want to develop. And it has to hurt. If you put yourself through hell regularly, you will grow as a person, because by doing so you confront whatever flaws in your character that tell you to quit. It makes you a better fencer and builds character. If you do it right, it will spill over to the rest of your life, since you have learned how to commit to something.

There are times when even the strongest fall prey to one of the thousand lights of illusion that flicker throughout this world of despair and distraction, and are led astray from the Road of Heroes, their footsteps faltering into the disease riddled whorehouse of modern culture. Its poisons and debasements at times can appear irresistible, infinitely easier and more comforting than the lifestyle we have chosen for ourselves- one of steel and Truth, might and myth- and we succumb to its paralyzing venom.
Like one in a stupor, we wander aimlessly, intoxicated by the feeling of freedom and wantonness that is initially felt when we turn our back on the heavy weight of duty and self-sacrifice; drunk on our new-found liberation, we stagger from sense pleasure to sense pleasure, overloading ourselves with saccharine experience. We hail libertinage and hedonism, sagely declaring that one should not deprive themselves of life’s many enjoyments, and for a time, we even believe ourselves.
After a honeymoon phase with the bride known as Indulgence, we realize that she is pox-ridden, and what began as pleasure and joyous gratification has become a sickness that grows within us, and its only cure is a prescription written for more and more. We begin to satisfy every urge that strikes our fancy, from drink, to drug, to simple sloth, and our Will, once a roaring flame that consumed weakness within its mighty flame, has died into ashes with barely an ember remaining. Our flesh grows weak, our minds fogged with a haze of burn-out and self-disgust as we watch the empire we have built crumbling around us, our bodies now a prison that we no longer hold the key to.
But this low point is not the end- rather, it is the beginning of a road to redeeming ourselves through the twin pillars of Strength and Purification. The knowledge must come that indulgence for its own sake can bring no true pleasure to the man of power- only transitory distraction from duty and honor. The hero understands that he was meant for something far greater than a life lived for cheap thrill and delirium, and that his only real satisfaction must come through an existence defined by the overcoming of great obstacles- of fearsome acts that grow his own personal myth, of realizing his higher destiny of becoming an archetype of awe and supremacy. This is his duty then: to himself, to his own strength of arm, will and spirit- to inspire those around him to :K:eep :R:ising with a constant display of unshakeable, brutal defiance of his own weaknesses.
The world around him becomes not anathema, but proving ground- he transcends its pitfalls and snares through ritual purification at the altar of Blood and Iron. The fire within him awakens again, and roars to new heights, fed with all the dross of his transgressions against strength. It burns clear and clean, without smoke, its light seen for great distances- it lights new fires around itself, which in turn become great in their own right, and combined, they burns the filth of the world away and make clean the earth.

Julius von Klever (Russian, 1850 -1924)
"Father, do you not see the King of the Alder Trees?
The King with his crown and tail?”
“My dear son, it is just a streak of mist.”
- Goethe (excerpt, my translation), 1782
“Willst, feiner Knabe, du mit mir gehen?
Meine Töchter sollen dich warten schön;
Meine Töchter führen den nächtlichen Reihn,
Und wiegen und tanzen und singen dich ein.”
