It Never, Ever Ends. In Fact, It's Just Beginning.


Seminole Heights, Florida seems to be haunted by the ghost of John Wheaties.

There have been 3 shootings in the past eleven days there and residents are concerned there may be a serial killer on the loose.

Tampa police released this very strange video clip, purportedly of a "person of interest." 

It looks more like Slenderman to me, though.



Of course, all this brings to mind the notorious Son of Sam killings in the Summer of 1977 in the outer boroughs of New York City. It all seemed to come to an end with the arrest of David Berkowitz.

The extrajudicial executions of the Carr brothers probably helped. 

Just a bit.




While we're talking about David Berkowitz, we might take note that the co-founder of Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids- Daisy Berkowitz (born Scott Putesky)- died on the 22nd at the age of 49. 

Do note that 7 x 7 = 49.


And that Marilyn Manson were formed in Florida as well. 


That face in the lower left of the Daisy obit photo belongs to Trent Reznor, who discovered and signed Marilyn Manson. Reznor was living in 10050 Cielo Drive at the time, home of the Sharon Tate murders that have absolutely no connection to Son of Sam or the Cropsey killings or any of that. 

Or so I'm told.

Reznor moved to Cielo Dr. after recording the Broken EP, which was called the "orange one" by everyone I knew at the time.



This seems to be the earliest existing photo of Brian Warner (aka Marilyn Manson) and Putesky. They look like pretty much everyone I was hanging out with at the time. But that shirt looks vaguely familiar. 


What is that of?




I thought so.




Daisy also listened to the same bands pretty much everyone I hung with did as well.





Things like the soundtrack to The Crow, made infamous by Brandon Lee's tragic accidental death.





And did you happen to know that Elizabeth Fraser was added to the Crow soundtrack after the film was completed? 

It's true. 

She cooed and wailed all over the song "Time Baby" by Medicine, but was missing from the film version. I wonder why they'd do something like that? 

I guess we'll never know.

Well, it's still interesting to see Elizabeth Fraser on a soundtrack with Scott Weiland and Dimebag Darrell. 

Variety is the spice of life.



And so are oranges.





Marilyn Manson has since branched out in to acting. 

And he's also branched out into orange.





His first acting role was in David Lynch's Lost Highway.






Yes, indeed it was. Affirmative.








And of course he was injured by two shooters a stage prop on the night of September 30.





I've been wondering what the narrative on the Las Vegas events are lately. Haven't heard much about it. Got me to thinking about The Las Vegas Story....





...which was followed up by this album.





And in case you haven't guessed by now, Gun Club leader Jeffrey Lee Pierce is dead as a hammer and has been since 1996.


Marilyn Manson was injured performing "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of Orange)." But my favorite song of Manson's goes like this:


Blood woman
Blood bitch
There's a corona
A corona swelling

Pressing hands
Against this scar
There's no warmth
There's no warmth to be felt

Don't damage my altar
Don't damn this cold flame
Neither one or the other
Has much form or shape

I'll paint the blood bitch
The blood bitch black


Wait; they're not Marilyn Manson lyrics. 

They're Elizabeth Fraser lyrics. From the first track on the first Cocteau Twins album.

  



Sorry. I get them confused sometimes. This are my favorite Marilyn Manson lyrics:


My soul I sold
I can't forget to ask
There's nothing movin' it again
Wolf thirst said me
Hear no, see no, speak no evil

Wait: those are Elizabeth Fraser lyrics, too. From Garlands. Of course.





Nu Metal pioneers Deftones covered the second song off of Garlands, "Wax and Wane." 


I'm not sure that was the best idea they ever had. I certainly would have advised them against it.

They kind of mangled the lyrics, which is certainly understandable. These are the actual lyrics:

Carrion grows
Broken within
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and we wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane

Licking our wounds
The Devil bites dirty
Rattling with the taste
We wax and we wane

The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane
The Devil bites dirty
We wax and wane

And when you get so many children
The Devil bites dirty
Up to the wee wanes
And we laugh in their faces





And no, those aren't Marilyn Manson lyrics either, but I certainly understand the confusion.

Incidentally, in old Scottish witchcraft it was believed the Devil sealed a pact with a bite.





I don't mean to be harsh but I really wouldn't have recommended Deftones cover that particular song after putting out this album, either.





For what should be obvious reasons by now.




And of course you-know-who's birthplace has an enormous monument in honor of the Kelpie. 

Twin Kelpies, actually.

Have no earthly idea why.





One thing I will say for the Deftones, though. They are....




...really...




...really...



...into...



...orange.


On a more serious note, though, I think you know by now why I think it was a bad idea to not only cover a song off Garlands (and The Pink Opaque) but to cover a song in which Elizabeth Frazer seems to processing things we may not want to ever know about. 

Which is to say we probably don't want to know why the Devil bites dirty or why "we" are laughing in toddler's faces.

Oh, before I forget- the remix of "Wax and Wane" follows "The Spangle Maker" and "Millimillenary" on The Pink Opaque.




"Wax and Wane" made its debut on the even of July 15th and became well-known for its slinky, menacing bassline.





It was recorded on the Summer Solstice for some reason, along with "Alas Dies Laughing" and "Feathers-Oar-Blades."





July 15th was also the birthday of Deftones bassist, Chi Cheng.





"Wax and Wane" was played during the November 4th, 1982 concert that was taped for the Cocteau Twins' television debut.





The Cocteau Twins were supporting Killing Joke.





The Cocteau Twins and Killing Joke. On #November4th.

On the same stage.




Even if you aren't familiar with the Deftones you probably know exactly where this story is going.





It all went to Hell. 


After five grueling years of near-total debility, Chi Cheng died at San Joaquin General Hospital on April 13, 2013. His death was announced on the 14th.





17 days after Cheng's death- on the Witch's Sabbath- Queen Beatrix abdicated the throne to her son, the Prince Willem- Alexander. After 33 years on the throne. 

Those numbers just keep coming up.





That's the House of Orange, in case you didn't know.


It goes without saying that the Cocteau Twins have a song called "Beatrix." Or that its sparse lyrics depict a woman- presumably Beatrix- who "fell."

But the bulk of the song refers to a man who also "fell." Fraser seems considerably more sympathetic to this character. 

The first line goes, "Every week, move is small."
In May 2010, Chi Cheng began showing significant signs of improvement, and was able to track individual people with his eyes, occasionally make worded responses, and slightly move his hands.  
On February 7, 2012, it was reported that Cheng was in a partially conscious state, having the ability to move his legs on command; however, he was unable to move independently or speak in sentences.




"Beatrix" is the third song on Treasure. The first is "Ivo," which was originally titled "Peepbo" (as in Bo and Peep). Jeff Buckley was known to perform this in his club days.




The next is "Lorelei"- the Siren again- where Fraser beckons lovers with the promise "we're covered by the sacred fire" but warns them "when you come to me, you come to me broke." 

Without, without, without, without a doubt.

After "Beatrix," the wailing starts.

That image below "Pandora" is the Calla lilly, which we talked about in relation to the Wolf River and the rest of it.

Calla lilies have become a common favorite in wedding ceremonies, but in contrast, lilies are also associated with death. They were often used on the graves of youths who suffered an untimely death.
When Venus, goddess of love, beauty, and desire, saw the lilies she was jealous of their beauty. She cursed their beauty by placing a large yellow pistil in the middle of the flowers. Because of this story, some associate the calla lily with Venus and thus with lust and sexuality. 

Two months after Beatrix's abdication, Elizabeth Fraser debuted with MKULTRA Right Up Your Ass Massive Attack vs Adam Curtis in Manchester. Fraser was hired to perform the works of Russian singer Yanka Dyagileva.


Who drowned in May of 1990. 

Are you sensing a pattern here?






The announcement of Chi Cheng's death came on April 14th, when this album was released, with its symbolic connections to the Deftones' nu-metal fremeies, Linkin Park.






As with Jeff Buckley, Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, the usual pattern applies. The signal is bit weaker, perhaps because of the tangential nature of the connection here.






Chi Cheng was replaced by a Vega.

Plus, orange.





Then we see this announcement last week- Deftones pitching merch inspired by First Blood.






Released by Orion Pictures, now owned by MGM.


It never, ever ends. In fact, it's just beginning.

  7. Boy! Where to begin? (I feel like I always say that when I feel compelled to comment here). ORANGE has been a strong color/feature in my sync articles in the past few years. And in relation to key sync pop culture touchstones like "Chinatown," "A Clockwork Orange," "The Godfather" films ... and then there is The Beatles' "Help!" film which has been coming up a lot (I just saw a pic of Jay Z sporting a "Help!" T-shirt last week). When you mentioned the song "Ivo" being called "Peepbo," I immediately thought of a phrase Leo McKern's "Clang" character - head of the Kali death cult chasing Ringo - said at one point, it sounded like "Peepbo." Also, when the cultists attack the Beatles in their flat, Ringo wards off some of his attackers by having an orange vending machine shoot oranges at them ...

  8. Chris,

    Again interesting work. Last time out I mentioned Close Encounters of the Third Kind. This time I'll say look at this sigil of Saturn:

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_0v6RwB3dFOU/ScuTdY4VZ8I/AAAAAAAAACU/Utxs_i49Khg/s400/1+sigel.jpg

    Overlay a Vesica Piscis and you get two Roman numerals - IX and XI. You take it from there.

    In regards to Orange, I once told Goro long ago that in French orange is actually two words - 'or' is gold and 'ange' is angel. Essentially the Golden Angel or "Angel of Light". As well, France and the French culture are represented by the Lily flower.

  9. First Blood was released the same day as Halloween 3 Season of the Witch? Another "coincidence" I guess. And why would a band like the Deftones, with so many Mexican American members find an affinity with a film that is so linked to the Reagan era? What's next, Fugazi selling Top Gun T-shirts?

  10. Elizabeth Fraser proves that there things that artists should not deal with, ever. Another example is Tobe Hopper, the recently deceased director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. In my music making I have had experiences where I had discarded work because a sudden strong feeling that there is something wrong and weird going on there. What is strangest about this is that I have been an atheist most of my life and even so realize that such things should not be dealt with. Ever.

  11. This happened back in 2012

    "William Bryan III, 35, of Whitman fell to his death down an elevator shaft in a building on Boston Harbor's Peddocks Island. He was with a group of friends, including the island's caretaker, an ..."

    http://www.patriotledger.com/x1665855598/Whitman-man-dies-in-fall-down-elevator-shaft-on-Peddocks-Island-near-Hull

    That was 32 days before Queen Beatrix announced her abdication
    On 28 Jan.2013 the same year the pope abdicated.

    From and including: vrijdag 28 december 2012
    To and including: maandag 28 januari 2013

    Result: 32 days
    It is 32 days from the start date to the end date, end date included

    Or 1 month, 1 day including the end date

    Peddocks island was the film location for Shutter Island with
    Leo di Caprio.

    Then this happened.

    "The body of Elisa Lam, also known by her Cantonese name, Lam Ho Yi (simplified Chinese: 蓝可儿; traditional Chinese: 藍可兒; pinyin: Lán Kĕ'ér; April 30, 1991[1] – February 2013), a Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, was recovered from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013.[2] She had been reported missing at the beginning of the month. Maintenance workers at the hotel discovered the body when investigating guest complaints of problems with the water supply."

    I think everyone here remembers the elevator scene starring Elisa Lamb.

    Then this

    The resignation of Pope Benedict XVI occurred on 28 February 2013 at 20:00 (8:00 PM) CET (19:00 UTC). The resignation[1] was first announced on the morning of 11 February 2013 by the Vatican.[2][3][4] Benedict XVI's decision to step down as leader of the Catholic Church made him the first pope to relinquish the office since Gregory XII in 1415[5] (who did so in order to end the Western Schism), and the first to do so on his own initiative since Celestine V in 1294.[6] The move was unexpected,[7] given that popes in the modern era have held the position from election until death.[7] The Pope stated that the reason for his decision was his declining health due to old age.[8] The conclave to select his successor began on 12 March 2013[9] and elected Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, who took the name of Francis.

    1. The 2014 video for Vancouver pop duo The Zolas' "Ancient Mars" is meant to be an idealized representation of Lam's last day, showing a young woman exploring Los Angeles and taking in simple pleasures. "It bugged me how tidily people explained away her disappearance with drugs or mental illness," said singer Zach Gray, who attended UBC around the same time and had a friend who knew Lam. "Though it's mostly fiction we wanted people to see it and feel like she was a real girl and a familiar girl and not just a police report."


      Psychic Uri Geller claims he helped CIA with JFK assassination probe – and even met Jackie Kennedy

      https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4751552/uri-geller-cia-jfk-assassination-trump-files/

      Did you know Uni Geller once buyed a lamb isle.

      http://www.urigeller.com/why-i-bought-lamb-island/


      (Elisa = a isle)

      “I am fascinated by the connection between the pyramids and these islands,” said Geller, 62, who is currently filming in Holland and Germany his reality TV show for mentalists, The Next Uri Geller.
      “The connection has been known for centuries — you can read about it in a fifteenth century manuscript called the Scotichronichon, by the Abbot of Inchcolm, Walter Bower. So when I heard Lamb Island was for sale, I felt a strong instinctive urge to buy it — and the more I delved into the history and the archaeological lore which surrounds it, the more certain I became that this is one of the most significant sites in Britain.”
      ...
      "What Nisbet realised is that the three islands are arranged in precisely the same crooked line that marks the layout of the Pyramids at Giza, built by the Pharoahs 4,500 years ago.
      That layout famously matches the three stars known as Orion’s Belt, and Nisbet discovered that anyone standing on the battlefield of Bannockburn, where Robert the Bruce defeated the English army in 1314, on the anniversary of the battle on June 24, would see the three stars (Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka) rise exactly over the three islands of Craigleith, Lamb and Fidra."

  17. Well, they say initiation never truly ends either.. Whatever IT is, It just keeps circling back over the same themes like a infinite playlist, getting back to the music theme again. Hard to know where to begin with all this, so I'll just write whatever comes to mind.

    First of all, yeah Florida. As I'm sure you know, its a real hothouse of high weirdness. I've been all over the state many times, I have more than a few relatives down there, and sometimes the word surreal doesn't do it justice. (Although the Dali museum in St. Petersberg is nice, now that I think about it). But the fact that there's a serial killer on the loose there doesn't really phase me. There are places in Florida that are like if Breaking Bad was directed by David Lynch, & that's not an exaggeration! Lots of bad history in southern FL esp, the Seminole Wars of the early 1800s were fucking brutal & no doubt left some kind of psychic imprint on the land.

    Getting back to the topic at hand...So, after reading this series you've been working on nonstop now for how many days(?), I'm going to go out on a limb with the following observation: I think that for lack of a better term, a "gate" has been opened, most likely by some large-scale ritualistic method as you've talked about (CERN maybe?), for something to communicate with us (well not "us" specifically but you get the gist). If we're talking about something possibly from another dimension, where time as we experience it is irrelevant, but the desire to communicate is strong, then the message as it were isn't going to conform to anything close to our sense of language (since we're all about past/present/future. Something from a higher dimension would experience it all at once). Instead, & I'm only guessing here of course, its going to communicate in such a fashion that synchronicity is the only way for it to manifest here. Because any intelligent being, regardless of where its from, is going to immediately understand that we're a species that's been hard-wired for pattern recognition from day one. Cue synchronicity, its how it gets us to pay attention. At least, that's my take on what we may be seeing here.

    But the gist of the message worries me. The same cluster of bands/musicians, directors/films/TV shows, references to very specific themes in mythology; sacrifice, madness, possession, death, illness, bad omens, a connection to certain stars & constellations, a connection to certain areas geographically, the color orange...I keep thinking we're being warned.

    1. I think it's more like we are being told what they are doing to us while they are doing it. But first we are paralysed.

      Like in a terrifying scene in mr. Robot.. "When Joanna's all-purpose aide murders the parking lot attendant, she gives him an unusual instruction: drug him into paralysis, and let a couple of minutes pass before shooting him to death. Why? "Killing a man instantly robs him of explanation. He has no time to process his final moments," she explains. "You let him die with answers. Otherwise we're nothing but ruthless murderers."

      (It was only then, when paralysed, in those dreadful minutes before being murdered he realized Joanna had betrayed him. He had been betrayed ALL THE TIME. He LOVED her. She had NEVER loved him.)

      And they even think somehow they are doing GOOD that way........ it would be cruel not to give that explanation....... the unbearable truth........

      And 'they' are mortals, I'm sure.

    2. I'm fairly positive the creatures in question are five dimensional. I'm not sure how to take the fifth dimension (fourth dimension is time), but I've been told you can see it as time plus all the possible choices, since the future isn't pre-ordained. Alternative, they might be something like the aliens in "Arrival", with consciousness that somehow time-travels.

      I don't think the gist of the message is a warning. As far as I can tell, the gist of the message is telling us something about our deep past and also about our future. Well, there may be a warning in our future. Something along the lines of "if you're not careful, you might get totally obliterated". But what's new about that, hey?

      Our very own loyal to the death mortal bodies remember everything, all of our past. And your body is what you really ARE. Without body, no mind.

  19. Hi Chris - The Deftones also did something I thought was odd at the time. In 2003, they released their CD single entitled, "Minerva" on the Maverick (synonym: free spirit)label. The repetitive two chord power drone kicks off this strange invocation to the goddess of the title who as you may recall is the Roman named goddess of wisdom, strategy in warfare, the arts, whose Greek parallel is Athena. Invocation of the feminine aspect of divine intelligence but to what purpose though? In light of *everything* you've been detailing here, here is what I might suggest. Music is the medium in which these spiritual entities move and operate from, if we can agree that there is some unseen hand manipulating time and strings in the background of all this. The accounts of Elizabeth Frasers' sexual abuse and forced manipulation may have been the catalyst for becoming the vessel of this inhabiting spirit. Let's call it a Siren based on what you have laid out.

    But, why a Siren? Why not some other aspect or entity? From the wikipedia description, we learn that the Sirens were often called the Muses of the lower world as the classical scholar Walter Copland Perry (1814-1911) states and is quoted in the article: "Their song, though irresistibly sweet, was no less sad than sweet, and lapped both body and soul in a fatal lethargy, the forerunner of death and corruption."
    Their song, it is further said, is continually calling on Persephone. Why Persephone? As you may also recall, Persephone was the daughter of the goddess Demeter who was abducted by Hades to the underworld (also referred to as 'The Rape of Persphone'). Demeter sent Persphone's handmaidens, the Sirens, to look for her as she gave them wings in which to aide their search. Having failed to find her, Demeter cursed them and fated them to live only until the mortals who heard their songs were able to pass by them. The linguist Jane Ellen Harrison (1850-1928) noted in referring to the Ker (a female death spirit) as Siren: "It is strange and beautiful that Homer should make the Sirens appeal to the spirit, not to the flesh."

    In the wiki article, Harrison goes on to say that "The The siren song is a promise to Odysseus of mantic truths; with a false promise that he will live to tell them, they sing,

    'Once he hears to his heart's content, sails on, a wiser man.
    We know all the pains that the Greeks and Trojans once endured
    on the spreading plain of Troy when the gods willed it so—
    all that comes to pass on the fertile earth, we know it all!'

    "They are mantic creatures like the Sphinx with whom they have much in common, knowing both the past and the future", Harrison observed. "Their song takes effect at midday, in a windless calm. The end of that song is death." That the sailors' flesh is rotting away, suggests it has not been eaten. It has been suggested that, with their feathers stolen, their divine nature kept them alive, but unable to provide food for their visitors, who starved to death by refusing to leave." (Continued)

      'TIME' and 'STRINGS'.
      PLUCK this and get THAT!
      The basis of the construct itself is based on MULTITUDE aspects of 'Vibration' itself; ALL 'FORM' is based on such.
      Creational 'patterns' represented by 'sound'.
      'SOUND' creates 'FORM'; 'FORM' is then 'SOUND'(vibration)
      But this does not address the aspect of 'WILL' here right??
      THERE is your 'THIS' and 'THAT', and even 'THAT OTHER THING'.

  20. (Continued Comment) Whatever this is, appears to me to be a focal point of sacrificial energies aimed at provoking events to complete in a certain way for a specific time. It is like a machine that once spun up, has to wind its way down before it stops. Utilizing these archetypical aspects of male and female energies we see these passion plays come to life in the lives and deaths of these celebrities so by their renown, the lesson is imparted to all.

    In the Odyssey of Homer, the rape of Cassandra by Ajax in the temple of Athena provokes the goddess to curse the purpetrator and all of his companions including Odysseus from being able to return safely home again. Perhaps the Deftones, being led by their own connection through this spiritual medium of time moving strings, we hear the plea to Athena (aka Minerva) to bring "our knees to the earth" and "For the song you saved us..." which in our time of great need when spiritual forces are turned out against us, the song to Minerva could "bring back peace to the earth." This release was perhaps that prayerful response for divine intercession from the prophetic reverberations emanating from our injured Siren, Elizabeth Fraser.

  23. Best-selling American author Dan Brown has officially opened a new Dutch library and museum devoted to rare esoteric books – the Embassy of the Free Mind – on Amsterdam’s Keizersgracht. Best known for the ‘Da Vinci Code’, Brown is a big fan of the collection officially known as the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica. Last year, he donated €300,000 to help digitalise some of the collection’s esoteric books which inspired him. Brown has studied at the library which includes some 25,000 books covering 5,000 years of western spirituality and was put together by businessman Joost Ritman. The collection includes very rare volumes on alchemy and medieval religious movements as well as works by Spinoza and Comenius. Now located in the listed ‘House with the Heads’, the library aims to evolve into an international centre for stimulating free thinking.

    The sister of Beatrix Irene was married to:

    "Carel Hugo van Bourbon-Parmaand Piacenza (8 April 1930 – 18 August 2010) was the head of the House of Bourbon-Parma from 1977 until his death. Carlos Hugo was the Carlist pretender to the throne of Spain and sought to change the political direction of the Carlist movement through the Carlist Party, of which he was the official head during the fatal Montejurra Incident. His marriage to Princess Irene of the Netherlands in 1964 caused a constitutional crisis in the Netherlands."

  25. I only watched First Blood a few months ago (on cable tv) and found it to very weird for a big budget action film (in fact one of the first of its kind). It has a very strong S/M undercurrent and all the violence seems ritual, from the attempted hair cutting (symbolic castration?) in the police station to the final showdown. A very violent and sordid movie even by today's standards.

  30. Thinking about my own personal connections with the color orange, it was the favorite color of a very damaged, muse-like woman I let into my home for a few month before truly understanding things like not inviting vampires into one's home. It was the start of a series of events forming a great revealing of what had been hidden from me, and what I had hidden from myself. Through her, however, I ended up making friends with a woman almost as angelic as my muse had been possessed. What a contrast!

    On the music side, the band Agent Orange leaped into my mind. My punk band opened for them once so that's the connect. A quick AO/CT search showed the same "birth year"

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Musical_groups_established_in_1979

    While I found no shared bills between them there is also a shared link with the Ramones. AO played with the Ramones in Pomona and the Cocteau Twins played with them at a big festival. Lollapalooza in particular.

    PS: As a musician I second the commenter who wrote about songs not to be sung/played/recorded. Having encountered one as a songwriter, I dropped it after more than one hint it was a good idea to do so. FYI, one of them was it was too much like that slow extended creepy guitar-drenched song the band plays in the lodge in Fire Walk with Me. Can't remember the artist or song name, though.

    Google pics of rozz he is the spitting image of manson or rather manson looks like rozz.

    the music is better too, real post punk early goth death rock type of stuff.

    the opening line to romeos distress would get a singer strung up today though. rozz seemed to love shocking people.

  32. Chris, are you familiar with Boards of Canada? They are another brilliant Scottish duo, very reclusive, living in the wilds outside of Edinburgh. I first heard them back around 1997, but they were openly influenced a lot by the Cocteau Twins, and were actually in close contact with them. Simon Raymonde was admittedly a big fan of theirs as well.

    I bring them up because there's a lot there thematically that has crossover with your findings. Their major debut Music Has The Rights To Children, features washed out 70s era family photos on the cover with all the faces erased. The track 'Aquarius' has a guy repeating the word Orange throughout it. In fact, subversive messages and numerology play a lot into their songs. The followup album Geogaddi is decidedly pagan and animistic in its theme, with hidden voices mentioning "a god with horns" and several references to branch dividians as a critique of sorts, mostly surrounding the fbi debacle, I think. The duo is openly non-religious.

    Most significantly though is their last album which came out in 2013. It was overtly facing the issue of collapse and the apocalypse and it's inevitable arrival. Songs like Reach For The Dead, Split Your Infinities, and New Seeds, the album is very much influenced by 70s era synth horror composers like Carpenter and Frizzi, as well as popular-at-the-time doom prophets like Orlov and Kunstler. Now, what's album's opening track called? Gemini. What's the album itself called? Tomorrow's Harvest.

    Anyways, probably no connection, but a lot of lights went off for me about their work while I was reading your excellent analysis.

Also Geogaddi has an exact runtime of 66:06, and tell me if the cover art rings any bells in color and shape: http://preview.tinyurl.com/yd95kpy6.

  36. So yesterday I turn on the TV, and the second episode of the new soap The Other Side of Paradise is on. First thing I see is an old lady in front of an altar which is ostenstibly Christian but clearly Mysteries-inspired. This old lady has an acid-trip vision in which she forecasts some ominous things. Later, a young girl is going to get married, and she goes to the wedding by speedboat, passing under the bridge of the city of Palmas:

    After the wedding, she goes home with her husband. She wants to rest and take off her clothes, but he forces himself on her. The scene is intercut with imagery of the woman drowing in a raging river. Eerie stuff.

  37. With all the hoopla over yesterday's (botched) release of those "last remaining documents related to the assassination of JFK," I am reminded of Marilyn Manson's deep interest in the assassination and in relation to his 2000 album Holy Wood and the thematic parable it provides about a society that embraces "celebratarianism" and JFK is a latter-day Jesus Christ. There's a lot going on on that album, and it takes on the "King Kill 33" theory, which reminds me of Linkin Park's later "A Thousand Suns" album, syncing Dallas with Trinity site. Just wanted to throw that out there.
