On the “Cuttin’ Ties” Podcast, Ty G. II will explore how ALL films are held up by spiritual perspectives. As Ty G. II likes to say (inspired by his favorite clown), "We all float, but WHERE are we going and WHO or WHAT is taking us up?" Exploring these spiritual ideas or "ties" will lead us to discovering IF the film is conducive to human evolution, or not. And this will ultimately result in his decision on whether or not we need to “tie up” the ties established by the film, or if we need to CUT THOSE TIES.

    Ty G. II brings in your favorite film, The Matrix, and 3 politically and racially charged SPIRITUAL TIES to prove to you that the Chosen One in the Matrix is NOT Neo, it’s MORPHEOUS. Keep this quote from Malcolm X in mind before you listen in. “I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing.

    COVID-19, JESUS CHRIST, THE DARK KNIGHT, BATMAN, THE JOKER, TY G. II, Adam and Eve

    Ty G. II claims that The Dark Knight can be considered a metaphor or analogy for humanity's attempts to take things into their own hands when they FEEL like God has taken no interest in their human affairs. COVID-19 has produced a lot of dis-ease for humanity, mainly because it has put us OUT OF CONTROL of what we have become accustomed to controlling. Join Ty G. II and the Tie Cuttin Community as we bring Christopher Nolan's 2008 summer banger, The Dark Knight, onto the choppin block!
