Stranger Things: The Viper's Nest


Gordon White of Rune Soup, Raj Sisodia of Amid Night Suns and I have a round table on Stranger Things 2, which-- spoiler alert-- none of us liked. I was particularly disappointed by this season because I was very much hoping they would push the issues raised in the first season to the next level. 

It didn't work out that way, did it?




What's more, we were all rather concerned over the growing sexualization of the characters and the actors who play them.

As I wrote before I thought it was particularly unfortunate timing that this series landed smack dab in the middle of the Kevin Spacey and Corey Feldman media wildfires as well as the overall issue of sexual harassment and abuse in the media in general.

And as you can see that concern on our parts is particularly well-placed, given the way the actors- Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown in particular-- are being sexualized by magazines and on social media. Gordon argued that what we are seeing is the Overton Window being moved on this issue and I have to concur. It's what I am concerned about when I talk about the normalization process.



Also, I appeared on The X-Cast recently to discuss the episodes "Red Museum" and "Excelsius Dei" with the great Darren Mooney, which are somewhat related to ST2. We explore the issues of MKULTRA and radiation experimentation in hospitals and nursing homes as well as other issues of systematized abuse.




Fortunately, there has been pushback against this trend on many sites.






Elite-pet/art-fraud Marina Abramovic














And the storm over Hollywood predation shows no sign of slowing down











But the sexualization of these young actors is very real.





Yes, indeed it was.


And then you have fucked up shit like that...

  1. This is similar to what happened with the film Kick Ass a few years back. Awful. A lot of bad things are going to be normalized in the near future. Today, the machinery of mind manipulation is capable of effecting changes in public opinion that used to take many decades into a few years. Even back in the 20s Edward Bernays, working for the tobacco cartel, was able to mount a propaganda campaign that erased the social disapproval of females smoking in the US in a few months.

    1. Chloƫ Grace Moretz* is the Lolita of 'I Love You Daddy' ('When a successful television writer's daughter becomes the interest of an aging filmmaker with an appalling past, he becomes worried about how to handle the situation.') written & directed by louis c.k., the same louis c.k. who back in 2015:

      'left Saturday Night Live viewers confused and uncomfortable after a lengthy joke about child molestation... Opening the last episode of the 40th season, he mused that the life of a child sex offender is so horrific that abusing young boys 'must be really good'... He compared the 'addiction' to his love of Mounds bars, saying he would reluctantly give them up if he knew they could land him in jail for life - 'but they obviously don't taste as good as little boys'.'

      'The Orchard will release Louis C.K.’s I Love You, Daddy on Nov. 17 after acquiring the dark comedy at the Toronto Film Festival... The black-and-white film will be rolled out theatrically in New York and Los Angeles, before going wider across North America on Dec. 1.'

      ...'dark comedy'... / 'everybody knew'

      Starring in 'Louie', David Lynch appears as 'Jack Dall. A friend of the head of CBS and notable television producer. He is a brash and tough leader assigned to help coach Louie to become the next host of the Late Show... Other performers considered included Jerry Lewis, Al Pacino, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese until it was finally settled that David Lynch would play Dall.'

      So assured are they in their machinating they fear no blowback, no reprisal, no fate not even in the days when the veil thins enough for one or two of their fellows to be put in the stocks.

      (*Who as 'Hit Girl' she was twinned in the way only a double life can hocus pocus)

    2. That's David '(A) Beautiful (Thing)' Lynch who had his prediliction for young beauties remarked upon on not only by those in 'The Return' but also by one of those he has an eye for, 'Special Agent Tammy Preston', in the 'all hallow's eve' published 'Final Dossier', & in 'The Return' it is another agent, a Special X-File Agent (who happens to be a mermaid of sorts), who first mentions 'Gordon Cole's' tendency.

    3. Are you saying "Tammy Preston" has been sexually harassed by David Lynch? I know her in real life and I can not imagine she would ever allow that to continue and not say something ....unless.... she wanted it to (she is an adult). She has a smart head on her shoulders and longtime friends.... supporting her should she require that. hmmmmm

    4. The little man in Twin Peaks in the Black Lodge posts nasty things about Lynch and pedo on his facebook. Most people wave it off as him being upset he was not going to get paid what he was asking for but ......considering everything going on .....and disbelief fans would have and they wave it off.

      I do not advocate witchhunts on the man and I would assume the worse at this point unless I had more evidence. And a phone call....

      I am going to listen to the audio book now.

  2. I only watched the first season after reading your posts about It, up until then It held no interest for me, & I'm of similar (target market?) age to the featured child protagonists.

    As far as that which was promoted as being the tale of season one goes, mkultra = d&dimensionly entities, there's nothing else to tell, It can only be done-over again & again & folk don't like being lectured at especially by entertainment, at least not by that openly delving into the black book would-be Pandora's box of tricks & treats, that shit gets old so fast! & anyway enough of the first time round viewers unfamiliar with such state things will have been 'brought into the fold' (all whilst the broader & less obviously (occult) media (in a odd science way) works the drip drip of disclosure poison as a slow kill), so the focus was shifted in the mess of season two (exclusively promoted as being even more eighties than the first time (twinned-80's)), but this shift still serves the narrative as the series is an mkultra working in & of Itself, everyone has their urine strained at work these days right?

    As for the promoting & supporting of obscenity you're highlighting in this post only a degenerate, decrepid, decaying, defeated & sick society would allow such to ever be uttered, let alone splashed across Its media, & for anyone thinking 'It's always been this way', no it has not & even if It had 'always' been so, that 'always' again (the same 'always' as all those boys & girls saying they 'always' knew they were the other) that would be no reason to turn blind eyes to the depravity reified by pop-okullt machination.

    For anyone suggesting discussing such stranger things merely adds to the shit heap this is false, for to not face down obscenity facilitates It festering on & on corrupting even more of that which should be held most dear & sacred.

    Chris you provide an invaluable service sharing your insights into such matters, I for one am thankful there are Folk such as yourself willing & able to express themselves honestly.

  4. Desperation mixed with perversion. The Hollywood approach to entertainment is dying. It isn't just the scandals it's the crappy product. The 80's analog world is being trucked out to show a generation that scary shit happens if you don't have a smart phone around. Chris I salute your ability to actually watch this stuff because I can't take it. It all seems so derivative and ham-handed and mostly because I think they're doing so much subliminal stuff that it makes things off.

    We're super sophisticated creatures and I believe many have advanced beyond being able to be manipulated by flickering images on a screen. That's why we see "real life" manipulation a la Las Vegas. I think this change in us is unearthly and comes from the cosmos. The idea that we are forever culturally controllable is the foundation of the 20th Century and it is literally fracturing and crumbling before our very open eyes.

    -D.

    1. I don't share that optimism. People are just as gullible as ever. It's just that the methods have shifted. Now it's all about social media, public spectacle, and "fake news" (weaponized tabloid journalism), and about how all these different platforms can be welded together into a single mass persuasion machine using artificial intelligence and mass surveillance.

      Hollywood and music/movies/TV as a persuasive venue is just old and busted. It's a lot less effective than the new methods which are all about breaking the fourth wall.

  5. On the subject of sexualizing youth, this is rather shocking yet perhaps not surprising. I really wish this were a parody or fake news, yet fear it is not.

  6. One of the worst things about hollywood today is that a premises that were just ok for 90 minute movies in the past now are turned into whole tv series. Boring. Just scroll though netflix or amazon lists and you will find hundreds of tv series no one is watching.

  7. Off toppic but,

    Several people were killed and others were injured during a shooting Sunday inside a church in South Texas, not far from San Antonio, authorities said.

    The incident occurred at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a small town more than 30 miles southeast of San Antonio.

    Local authorities have yet to confirm how many were killed or injured, but Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr. told the Washington Post that at least 27 were killed and more than 20 were injured. The gunman has been killed, he said.

  9. Was just on the way here through the interwebs and saw news of another shooting.

    https://www.google.com/amp/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN1D510F

    Very sad to see more of this stuff. Yet not surprised either.

    Also sad to see more of this creepy Hollywood stuff. Demogorgon dildo? That's really pushing it a bit too far.

    And I'm not one to be super conservative towards merchandise for sci-fi and horror movies. I remember there being toys for R-rated genre movies such as Aliens and Rambo, etc. There was a really cheesy Rambo cartoon series too. I always thought that sort of thing was odd, a bit silly, but not too sinister. As a kid I was into monster flicks like Godzilla and robots and cool cars like Knight Rider's KITT, so naturally I eventually discovered things like the Alien xenomorphs and characters like Johnny Five and Terminator at some point. After that then, The X-Files and new Outer Limits series.

    Sexualization of kid actors and fictional creatures from basically a PG-13 Netflix show? Yeah, something is not right with that.

    The thing that makes it seem extra icky... Is Stranger Things becoming like a mini-Star Wars kind of popular mythos/franchise for kids and teens? Or is it mostly hitting the older demos like late era Boomers, and especially Gen X and early Millennials (Xennials)?

  13. There's actually a quiet campaign within Western society to reclassify Pedophilia as a mental disorder that started out in the Elite Universities within the U.K. "'Paedophilia is natural and normal for males' - How some university academics make the case for paedophiles at summer conferences"

    "Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”

    "The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge."

    "Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds."

    ^^^^That was published 2014 so you see that pedophilia bovine excrement being normalized from top-down via both Western entertainment industries and also the intelligentsia. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/10948796/Paedophilia-is-natural-and-normal-for-males.html

  14. OH yeah the Harvey Weinstein modern mystery play has come back full circle to The Original Burning Man in the West i.e. Guy Fawkes day; "Thousands of revellers have flocked to the burning of an effigy of Harvey Weinstein after a sleepy Kent village found an unusual way to mark its annual Guy Fawkes Night celebrations."

  15. The horrid "Punk" episode may have been a sly nod to 80s stalwart Quincy M.E., which also had a terribly bad "punk" episode.

    At least, I hope that's the reason.

  16. There has been a series of incidents on the news about teachers using duct tape to silence students. This has happened in various cases dating back as far as 2011. In a school in Texas (0ctober 2017) a teacher was accused of taping the mouths of her entire group, 22 students.
