Apocalypse This Week: What Worries Me Most

There is so much going on out there, so much mischief and madness being thrown at us, so many toys coming out of those DUMB labs and archonic think-tanks that I can hardly keep up with it all. Then there's nightmare in Austin that seems to have risen like Cthulhu from the deep, dragging a gaggle of potent symbols in its wake like tin cans behind a newlyweds' Studebaker.

I wasn't planning on doing anything on this story because judging from the media and establishment reaction-- which has been oddly muted and disorganized-- it seemed like an all-too predictable by-product of the apocalyptic mess we're now living through.

I guess I was wrong.

Nephilim Rising: Are You Not Entrained?

The Pearl entrainment campaign train keeps-a-rollin', and hot on the heels of the Gucci's Pearl-heavy 2018 advertising blitz--which seems to have been the official kickoff for this particular liturgy of the Never-Ending Ritual-- the floodgates have well and truly opened, the levee's gone and broke, the dam has finally burst.

Babylon 2.0

I get the feeling a lot of people still don't quite take Dubai seriously and see it as a weird artifact of a prolonged oil boom that brought shiploads of eff-you money to a bunch of desert sheikhs who never quite figured out what they wanted to do with it all.

I've heard a lot of talk about Dubai (or Dubaibylon, if you prefer) being a tacky LARP of a Sci-Fi city, a monument to Futurist techno-kitsch and plain old bad taste. But it's time for that talk to stop. Nobody's kidding, or fooling around in Dubai. 

What they're doing over there is serious as a heart attack.

Missing Foundation: U2s Bono Finds the Bottom

Bono & Merkel- a match made 
in the deepest pits of Hell 

I'm a big fan of the film Bedazzled, both the Cook/Moore original and the Fraser/Hurley remake (shut up). Both films riff on the old Faust routine, the proverbial --or actual, in this case-- deal with the Devil in order to show you that the house always wins and you always get the shite end of the stick. Natural facts, is all.

The takeaway in Bedazzled is that the Devil isn't just enormously powerful, he's actually the greatest legal mind in history. There's a reason Satan is introduced in the Book of Job as the "Adversary," or essentially, Jehovah's Attorney General. He knows the Law like nobody's business and he's here to make sure you choke on it. 

So open wide, Bucko.

Snapshots from the Apocalypse: Drilling for Doomsday

Did you miss me? Oh, you did? That's so sweet, thank you.

In case you were wondering, I was at APOCALARP-CON 2018, drilling the breakdown of the Grid when the poles flip, or the Sun burps, or Russia launches Coldbringer, or whatever. The great thing is that we didn't even have to leave the house! 

In fact, we couldn't have left the house even if we wanted to!
