Sometimes there is a point when the Collective Unconscious answers your incessant knocking at its door.

Jack Kirby: Mindbomb, Part 3: Only Come Out at Night

A pack of gluttonous, raccoon-eyed paranoids drunk on consumerism, Calvinism and overstimulation. An expert diagnosis of Bush-era America? Well, that's a bit outside of the Secret Sun's province. 

Here, it's a description of Jack Kirby's "Night People," whom Captain America tangled with following the Madbomb Saga.

Secret Cinema: Dog Day Afternoon

While Jake was probably putting the finishing touches on his latest video last Saturday night, the missus and I watched the classic 1975 film, Dog Day Afternoon. 

 I haven't seen the film in, uh, a dog's age, and hadn't remembered it was the first major role of none other than Mr. Millennium himself, Lance Henriksen.

Jack Kirby, Mindbomb: Down the Rabbit Hole

It seems that nearly every major theme discussed in the more speculative branches of conspiracy research finds a synchronistic antecedent in three obscure Jack Kirby comic books. So many of the thematic strands that we now see bubbling up from the conspiracy underground seem to hover around these books like a Lovecraftian spectre.

Song & Album of the Year: 2007

My favorite song of the year is probably pretty obscure to some people, which just shows how pathetic the music industry has become. 

"The Night Starts Here" by Stars is an instant classic, something I heard on 3WK and went and bought on ITunes before it even ended.
