Appearances Can Deceive

So after all the shouting and controversy, could it be that the "Ground Zero Mosque" is a hoax? Nothing would surprise me these days, but you gotta love Huffpost's beauty shot of the Stairway to Sirius here, especially given the site's penchant for super-loaded symbolism.

Secret Star Trek: A Really Bad 21st Century

One of the many alien "Gods" from Star Trek

 Summer is the time when my brain goes into standby mode. Actually, that's not true, it's actually the time when I delve back into a particular pop culture obsession and follow different themes in and out of paranormal lore and history.

Freudian Funnybooks: Two and a Half Men

I haven't done one of these in a while but it's been such a gloomy summer and we can all use some unintentional hilarity laced with sac-kickingly blatant phallic symbolism. I'm not going to comment on any of these, but feel free to write your own captions in the comments section. Or not. Hey- it's Sunday in August. Do whatever makes you happy. Or don't.

Click to enlarge. Or not.

"Children of the Flaming Wheel"

I could try to preface or frame this photocomic somehow, but there's no way I could make it any less strange and wacked out than it already is

Longtime Secret Sun readers know all about Jack Kirby and the absolute incongruity of his obsessions with the highest weirdness imaginable contrasted with his almost stultifying suburbanite life. I'd argue that the latter not only enabled but fueled the former.

Secret Sun Picture Parade: Aliens and Egypt, Again

Yahooccultismus strikes again. Quite a juicy semiotic mashup there, the UFO story, the Sun headlines, a Phoenix namedrop, the mer-man links and of course the dogs (as in the Dog Star). 

Really a subtle work of genius that most people will completely ignore. Secret Sun readers know better.
