Star Trek Discovery: Infinite Bellicosity in Infinite Conflagrations




Jesus.

I really don't know where to start.

I watched the two-part opener of the new Star Trek series and I'm still wondering if I didn't hallucinate it all. I'm still wondering if I didn't have some weird flashback and find myself in an alternate timeline where Star Trek was created by John McCain and Lindsey Graham instead of Gene Roddenberry. A weird dimension where Star Trek is very slick and very costly recruitment propaganda for some alternate-reality, militarized Space Fleet.

So Now You Know (Part Two)





So what the hell was Twin Peaks: The Return all about?

Well, the answer to that question depends on who you ask. If you ask me it was all about childhood trauma and mind control. 

Two of my least-favorite subjects to research or write about, but here we are.

Let Me Tell You a Story: You'll Float Too


"The past is never dead. It's not even past."- Faulkner

Well, as soon as everyone in the geek culture cognoscenti recovered from the stunning finale of Twin Peaks: The Return, the new adaption of Stephen King's It hit the theaters, setting off a new wave of retro-horror hysteria that will probably lead right into the premiere of Stranger Things 2 at the end of October.

So Now You Know (Part One)





OK, so here we are. 

This all started back in May, when Chris Cornell died in the MGM Grand after performing with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre on the Detroit River. The next day Twin Peaks: The Return premiered at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. At first I didn't make anything of that little conjunction there. But then I felt that familiar buzz in my sinuses and went hunting for connections.

Knowing the Knowers: A Round Table on Gnosis



This is a really intense and info-rich conversation I had with two gentlemen who are a lot smarter than I will ever be, Gordon White of Rune Soup and Miguel Conner of Aeon Byte. The topic was are we living in a Gnostic Age and what exactly does that mean? Who are the Anti-Gnostic Hypergnostics? What does all this portend as we witness the rise of Artificial Intelligence and the birth of Big Brother 3.0.1?

Sync Log: Houston, Harvey, Twin Peaks and the Siren



Twin Peaks: The Return- Episode One

Over the past several weeks I've been looking at the events that followed in the wake of Chris Cornell's death and the revival of Twin Peaks, which occurred within days of each other. This threw me down the old rabbit hole of the Siren archetype, which I believe is rising out there in all the different streams and spheres of consciousness. 

Why, I haven't a clue.
