Pray for Us Shimmers



Well, we're coming up on awards season. As of yet, I haven't seen the chilling docudrama Annihilation nominated for any major awards. Maybe it shouldn't have been so closely associated with Netflix or maybe it should have just dropped the "dramatization" bit and done a straight documentary. (Or maybe gone a little lighter on the dubsteb sound effects, I don't know).

However, as a based-on-real-events deal Annihilation is one hell of a lot more realistic than Black Hawk Down or Zero Dark Thirty could dream of ever being. But what good is realism when reality itself is constantly being overwritten?

Sync or Swim: The Gyre Ever Widens



As per usual there's more going on out there than I have time to process. I keep trying to chop up these posts into smaller portions but they just keep growing. I'm really harried at the moment, so let me just drop a major deluge of high-grade synchery on you good folks and let you hash it all out while I attend to important business.

Winter is Coming, or There Goes the Sun





Well, it's quite brisk around these parts, my friends. I find it rather invigorating with the sun shining, somewhat less so when it's overcast. And if the trend-lines hold I'll probably have adjusted my opinions rather considerably in a few weeks or so.

All the more so if the Bond-villain schemes spewing out of Harvard University (the time-honored spawning ground of many an aspiring Bond-villain scheme) come to fruition.

Space/Gods: Bennu and the Jets



Lots of activity up in space this week, allegedly. And right on time we have some NASA guy talking about aliens and UFOs, which in turn will be followed by the usual walkbacks and denials. We all know the drill, we've heard it a hundred times before. It's how the NASA nerds get their little jollies.

I mean, I think it's kind of tired but the government doesn't give me tens of billions of dollars to piss away every year, do they?

PseudoScience Friday: Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Someday




Well, the P.T. Barnum Memorial Permanent Moon Base Roadshow pulled into town again and performed its song and dance for bored reporters. I'm not sure why this old saw was pulled out of the toolbox but it seems to me this act plays to smaller crowds every time it takes the stage.

Guess it's true. You can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Apocalyptic Talking Points: Roko's Basilisk




If the reports are to be believed, a Chinese scientist created the first gene-edited babies and of course they're Twins. Twin girls, to be precise. 

The only people caught off guard by all this are those poor, benighted souls who don't read The Secret Sun. I'm thinking of starting a GoFundMe for them.

The Ice Age is Coming, the Sun's Zooming In


I woke up this morning and my phone informed me that it was 12ºF outside. I think that roughly translates to -70ºC or something.

I dunno, I kinda suck at math. But I think you get the idea.

Sync or Swim: The Moon and the Maladies



You've probably seen some articles on this bizarre advertisement for Celine Dion's (literally: "Moon Goddess") new gender-neutral clothing line. It's every bit as weird and unsettling as you heard it was, but guess what? It's 2018 and this is where we are now.

Twilight of the Immortals




First of all, apologies for the recent bloglect. Been very occupied with meatspace concerns, and to be honest, getting away from constant exposure to the Borgsong has been good for the mind, body, soul, and spirit. I recommend it.

Friday, November 09, 2018

We'll Leave the Lights On For You


Well, there you have it. I'm not sure exactly what to think about this here: is this just more clickbait from the pop-science-site crowd, just one of an endless series of junk stories that come and go without ever amounting to anything? Is this laser omnidirectional or two-way, meaning can information (like, say, encoded genomes) be sent back and forth upon it?

Or is this some kind of signal to let the Vegas know that the groundwork's been laid and the Earth's now ready for invasion? Cast your vote in the comments.

A Demon-Haunted World After All


Do you come here OFTEN?

I don't exactly understand the mechanics of spellcraft and I'm not sure anyone else does either. Is it simply the power of suggestion? Is it a kind of mind control? Is it somehow based in non-supernatural but super-normal psychic powers?

I don't know and to be honest, I don't much care. I don't really worry too much the exact science of microprocessors when I use the Internet. I'm just interested in the results.



Monday, November 05, 2018

Knock, Knock. Who's There? It. It Who? It Never Ends.


Well, 'Oumuamua continues to vex star-watchers. The Vegas' mothership anomalous space-projectile seems to behave in very strange ways, leading scientists at Harvard University to conclude that it may in fact be a dislodged solar sail from an extraterrestrial galactic probe.


Ever get the feeling that sciences like astronomy were invented to keep really smart people too busy to cause trouble? Y'know, kinda like Synchromysticism?

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, It Never Ends.


Well, it's been nearly a year and a half since Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell died on the Detroit River and there's been a never-ending rollercoaster ride of highly nutritious synchery ever since. And since timing is everything, we keep getting hit over the head with what I like to call the "emerging archetypal dominants" on account of it being the Great Unveiling and all.

So it's only natural that the Apollo Chris Cornell statue was unveiled today, and the festivities were bathed in an eerie glow of Violaine.

"Repurposed as a Mechanism for Public Ritual."




Well, here we are yet again. Apparently the Siren Songs in Hobart and Perth were just warmups, because now the same folks behind those explicit and self-acknowledged public rituals have brought their act to England. Ipswich, Suffolk, England to be precise. And it's pretty much the same deal as before, only the ante has clearly been good and upped.

Believe or don't, my dear friends, but the clock is most definitely ticking.

Calling Up the Devil and Asking Him to Behave



Well, it's been quite a week. Seems like I've been saying that a lot lately. But despite the atrocity and upheaval, it's also been an elucidating week, in that some persistent delusions have been shattered.

One of those delusions is that you can summon demons and expect them to do your bidding.

It's No Game



There's so much stupid out there that sometimes it gets pretty hard to figure out which particular flavor of stupid takes the cake. But my vote goes to all these idiots who dick around with black magic in hopes of scoring virtue points with Twitter bluechecks.

And by that I mean numbnuts who screw around with hexes and curses in hopes of making some kind of political statement, however garbled.

I mean, why not just try juggling chainsaws? It's probably a lot safer in the long run.

Non Sic Iste Non Cessat Loqui


Well, I finally got around to watching this marvelous documentary. Y'know, I'm going through a bit of a Cinéma vérité phase, as it were. I wanted to post on it today but time constraints forbid. If you haven't seen it yet, please do. Maybe we can have a roundtable on it.

So yeah, I'm super, super pressed for time so let me just drop some fresh apocalypse on your heads and allow you good and eminently-qualified people to sort it all out.

Apocalypse Tonight: Compute-Compute-Computer Games



OK, you've probably seen this video by now. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this looks fake as f**k to me. It just looks like mediocre CGI. I'm not seeing any compelling evidence that this thing exists as a complex machine in three-dimensional space with this alleged robot, and certainly not as it comes onscreen.

It's not even that it looks like someone in a suit, it just looks like the most talented kid in your local high school computer animation lab showing off to that girl he's sweet on.

Sync or Swim: Taste the Sound of Purple




OK, we have a lot of syncs to sort through and I am very much pressed for time, so let's try to go over this quickly now and get more in-depth on it all later. In fact, I think a kind of brief objective review is a good idea because my head is spinning so fast I'm afraid it might actually time-travel.

All I can say is that remember all that stuff you were rolling your eyes at yesterday? Well, maybe a weekend rethink is in order.

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Sync or Swim: You Know This Much is True



OK, I'm just going to present all of this to you as is. Regular readers, you know the score. Casual readers, all I can say is you might want to do some reading over the weekend. For everyone else, I'm sorry, I haven't a clue what to tell you at the moment. It's too huge.

If you feel totally lost and think this is all utter insanity, don't worry. That's a very good sign. Because all of it absolutely is utter insanity.

We Can't Say We Weren't Warned


I've been going on and on about X-Files Reality (XFR) since I started this blog, but lately? Well, lately it's gotten so egregious that pointing out how X-Files our so-called reality is becoming almost seems beside the point. Plus, kind of unsettling.

I mean, we just took a deep dive into X-Files Reality just a few weeks ago and already there's a whole new batch of XFR to sort through.

But I do have to admit it was a lot more fun when we all thought The X-Files was science fiction. Especially all that stuff about weaponized bees being engineered to spread gene-edited viruses, like smallpox.

The Never-Ending Ritual: Let's Play Ba'al!




Well, there it is. Kind of says it all, don't you think

You just gotta laugh. Because if you don't, you could well go mad.

Revolution Sold Separately


Sometimes the Gods of Sync arrange things so deeper, more subtle truths can make themselves known. It takes time and patience to sort through what these truths may be. Maybe we aren't meant to know these truths on a literal level, but then again the Gods of Sync never seem to lose any sleep worrying about trifles like literalism.

The Last Wave



As the cold civil war rages on in Washington, the war for survival makes an utter mockery of our pathetic delusions that we could ever even dream of becoming the masters of this domain. 

We're simply reaping the benefits of a vanishingly-brief armistice in the war Stepmother Nature has been waging since before Time began.

Birth Bags and Ballyhoo


In a related story, I hear folks are fixing to use them computer gimcracks pretty soon. And I also hear they're talking about sending the television picture shows through wires, like Ma Bell or something. Ain't that just the living end? 

Well, until the clones come calling, enjoy this little slide show of completely random and totallly unrelated clippings. Just a few unconnected headlines and stuff. Y'know, just to pass the time on a sunny September afternoon...

That Joker Isn't Funny Anymore



Well, Secret Sun September may be winding down now but it seems it still has a few surprises left for us. The latest is the release of makeup tests for the new Joker standalone movie, which will be starring Joaquin Phoenix in the titular role.

Hey, Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto? It's only logical that Phoenix would land the iconic role, right? I mean, who else would you expect, right?

It's all the more logical if you're a diehard Secret Sun reader....

Twilight of the Mortal

Dolphins again...

OK, so I'm really trying to get this monster of a tome I've been writing for the past three years put to bed. I'm in the homestretch with the second draft but it's getting so huge I may have to go back and see if there aren't any darlings that might need killing. 


But having spent my entire career in publishing (such as it is) eyeing the word count ticker like a doomsday clock, I've resolved to give myself as much room as I need and let the stones fall as the will.

PseudoScience Monday: Sunspots on My Shoulders


Obelisk much?

Well, the mysterious closing of the Sunspot Observatory in New Mexico has been followed by an equally mysterious reopening. It's not every day a Federal installation is evacuated under military orders and left deserted for several days. 

But this is 2018 and the rulebooks for normal have been delisted, shadowbanned and deleted.

KIller Clowns from Other-Space



I've been trying to wrap my head around the events of the past two weeks, on account it seems like somebody might have opened a Gate or broken a Seal somewhere. I'm still waiting for some fresh shoes to drop so please bear with me while the apocalyptic cake bakes. But then again, you don't probably need to tell you just how weird everything seems to have gotten out there, as if the Watchers may have come back from vacation and wanted to hit the ground running.

Well, we know how this all started, but the Secret Sunnification of the entire world isn't truly complete without a certain quartet of apocalyptic horsemen. And right on cue, they done rode into town...



Friday, September 14, 2018

"It Looked Like Armageddon"


.
A lot of readers asked my opinion of the Sunspot observatory closing. Truth be told it was tough to comment on since there was so little information to actually comment about. And as we do around here, I was looking for the tendrils leading to a bigger beast.
.
And on Thursday it all got thrown into perspective, at least for me.

Apocalypse Like Sugar: Links Like Sugar




 NOTE: Since so much is happening so quickly I decided to post some germane links pertaining to the most recent post. 


Be advised some thumbnails may not load on your mobile, depending on your browser. Use web browser view if possible.

Apocalypse Like Sugar



Hey, are you busy? Can I borrow you for a few minutes?

Yeah, I got a few little syncs you might find interesting. Y'know, just for grins and giggles.
 
Go on, take a click. It'll be a hoot and a holler, I guarantee.

Don't be shy, now...

Sync or Swim: An Apollonian Spirit Rising


"Above anything else (Apollo) was a god of oracles and prophecy - and the oracles he gave out were riddles, full of ambiguities and traps.  
"It was the people who believed everything was bright and clear who ended up in trouble."

Keep Rollin', Rollin', Rollin' (Down the River Styx)


Well, that Old Devil Time strikes again and takes another giant away off the boards. Burt Reynolds had what you might call a checkered career but when I was a kid he was nothing less than what nearly every red-blooded American male aspired to become. 

Burt Reynolds was the alpha-male's alpha male. He was a boss's boss.

So why then shouldn't he find himself pulled feet-first into the vortex of the most confounding enigma of our times? I'd expect nothing less.

This has certainly been the week for it...

Sync or Swim: Tokyo Storm Warning (UPDATE)


As usual there is way too much going on out there for me to keep with. And it all seemed to really kick in as soon as our calendar turned to September. 

I realize you all hate when I talk like this but I have to admit I've been feeling a tad on the doomy-gloomy side about what exactly might be barreling towards us. 

I hope I can help you see why. I hope even more you can convince me I'm wrong.

PseudoScience Friday: Saints and Shimmers


Well, I told you Annihilation was nonfiction. 

Did you listen? No, of course not. No one listens to me.

Even so, this insanely-rare albino lobster-- 1 in 100 million, allegedly --was caught off the "New England coast," which only narrows it down to several thousands of miles of actual coast when you factor in all the islands and such.

Sync or Swim: The Days of the Lords

New Yorkers praying to Coatlicue. In New York.

Today's the 101st anniversary of Jack Kirby's birth. Yes, yes; I realize I missed his centennial but there might have been a few other things going on at the time, no? And I'm not going to go into too much detail here anyway since it's the end of August and everyone's at the beach. Or the pool or at the grill. 

But it finally dawned on me that Kirby and fellow oracle Elizabeth Fraser's birthdays are back-to-back (I'm slow like that) and there's probably a deeper astrological meaning behind it. But since I can barely even remember the Zodiac, I'll leave that analysis to the experts. 

However, I'd be remiss if I didn't drop the whole Regulus in Virgo business here again, seeing as how Kirby's nickname was "King" and that Our Lady's namesake was known as "the Virgin Queen."

Apocalypse This Week: Charting the Collapse



I never got the whole Dario Argento thing. I mean, I get it; I realize why hipsters would be drawn to his work. It's "stylish" and "surreal" and "transgressive." If you like that sort of thing.

Me, I just find his film-making clunky and more than a bit mentally-sick. And not in a tormented visionary way, more in a Doc and Mharti or Boiled Angel kind of way. It's more like the aesthetic of John Wayne Gacy's clown paintings transliterated to film, for me at least. 

I guess that's the appeal, the "outsider" aura of it all. Whatever. Yawn.

Even so, the timing couldn't possibly be worse for this slick remake of Argento's best-known film, Suspiria.


Thursday, August 23, 2018

On Earth as it is in Heaven. Or Las Vegas.



Man, here it is being World Regulus Day and none of you folks even sent me a card. That really hurts my feelings, y'know. I mean, not even an eCard? After all I do for you? Cold.

It's especially wounding since some astrologers are saying this is the big kahuna of Regulus Days, the zero point, the nexus, the crucible. From now on everything changes. Why?

How the hell should I know?

Lipsynching in Babylon: 2018 MTV Entrainment Rituals


Babylon is back, baby!

The music-counterfeiting wing of the Entrainment Industry sent their finest lipsynchers to lower Manhattan's Nephilim Cathedral Oculus to attend the prestigious Golden Freemason Awards. 

Pop's biggest brainwashed mannequins names vied for Most Entraining Corporate Music-Adjacent Simulacrum in a diverse range of music-counterfeiting categories, ranging from fake Hip-Hop to fake R&B to fake Pop.

Cthulhu's Stepchildren: CRISPRs from the Black Lagoon?




I saw a funny story the other day. Apparently a bunch of scientists at Oxford declared that not only is Earth life unique in the galaxy, it's unique in the universe.

I'm guessing they know this because they've been there themselves.

I got a chuckle out of this because not only do these types not know what's in our solar system (never mind the universe) they don't even know what's in our oceans.

Or for that matter, our lakes.



Thursday, August 16, 2018

Damn it, Planets



Kind of says it all, doesn't it?

I'm sure a lot of you have seen this video already but to me it feels like more than just a viral news story, it feels more like a metaphor. Or at least I hope it is. I kinda hope that we're all like this surfer, negotiating all the massive disruptions all around us, geological and/or political and/or social. 

Plus, planetary.

The (Secret) Space Force & the Never-Ending X-Files LARP



Just how weird are these times we are living in? Well, they're so weird that there's a new branch of the military in the works called the "Space Force." Now, I've talked quite a bit about "Starfleet Reality" and the Star Trek timeline but I never thought things would go this far this fast.

And by that I mean I figured all the toys they've been working on out in the Nevada desert would stay in the black until conditions necessitated their unveiling. Goes to show what I know.

Not a lot.

Friday, August 10, 2018

Space Force. Nothing but Space Force.




For reasons no one can seem to fathom, the Trump Administration launched the rumored Space Force branch of the military thereby officially kicking off the Age of Militarized Space, at least the overt phase in that program.

VP Mike Pence was tapped to make the announcement, just in case anyone might mistake this all as just another skit in the ongoing Donald Trump Variety Hour. No, this is serious as a heart attack. And I can't help but wonder who the intended receiver for this unambiguously-bellicose transmission really is here.

But not all that much.

Apocalypse Tonight: Where the Machmen Meet


Vogue, who've been at the forefront in driving the Pearl meme this year, are featuring guest-editor Beyonce Knowles-Carter for their September cover. And lo and behold, Mystery BeyBalon took the opportunity to crown herself with Garlands. 

Secret Sun readers expect nothing less.

Life's Still A Riot with Spy vs Spy


The big news today is that Big Tech purged Alex Jones from their platforms in what looks like a coordinated effort. Everyone's going to have their own opinions on this but mine is that this is the latest skirmish in the ongoing spywar raging beneath the placid summer surface in this great land of ours.

The X-Files X-it & the Death of Conspiracy Culture, Concluded


I'm a big fan of the maxim "stay in your lane" when it comes to popular culture institutions. I don't mean "pound the same idea into the ground until the world screams for mercy," I mean, "figure out what made people pick your idea out of an endless ocean of competitors and clamp down on it like a snapping turtle."

Doing so effectively calls for wisdom and for a deeper understanding of archetype and group psychology, something most creative types aren't exactly known for.

Let me cite two examples from the world of pop music as examples of what I'm not talking about...


Tuesday, July 31, 2018

The X-Files X-it & the Death of Conspiracy Culture, Part One


Well, after 25 years it looks like we've reached the end of the road. I'm talking about what is most probably the last permutation of The X-Files, and of the Internet conspiracy culture that rose up alongside it. 

Maybe even the end of the Internet as a public square where people from all walks of life and all kinds of varying viewpoints mingle and argue. For some reason the three feel intimately linked.

The Dreadful Orange Skies

Orange skies in the morning, 
Mithras Nymphus take warning

Well, this is fascinating: after almost a year of Orange shirts and Orange skyscrapers here, there and everywhere, one can't help but wonder if someone or something somewhere has decided to return our calls. 

Or do I have it all backwards?

The Titans Which Kept Not Their Seasons in the Abyss


"Its original and rightful rulers, the Titans"

Well, the San Diego Comicon just wrapped and fresh waves of trailer trash are upon us. 


What's more, it seems we have a fresh meme to factor into our exegeses. First up is the Godzilla, King of the Monsters trailer. Here's the elevator pitch:
"The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species – thought to be mere myths – rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance."— Legendary and Warner Bros. 
"Monarch." You gotta laugh.

The Never-Ending Ritual: Oil of Angels


Well, we're almost halfway through summer and the Secret Sunification of "Reality" quote-unquote continues apace. I apologize in advance. Without further ado let's proceed to this week's liturgy.

Turn to the all-important page 44 of your hymnals...

Thursday, July 19, 2018

The Orbserver in the White House

Shortly after high noon on the 17th, Donald Trump addressed the media over the firestorm raised by the intelligence community over the Helsinki summit, ostensibly to walk back statements he made at the Helsinki summit. Not long after Trump began speaking, the lights in the conference room went out, "accidentally" turned off by Chief of Staff John Kelly.

You won't believe what happened next!

Dog Days Media Blitz: Reach the Rock


Are those Sickles? J'ai Alai cestas?

Everyone loves The Rock. You love him, I love him, America loves him, the world loves him. Hell, even my dog loves The Rock. Yours probably does too.

And seeing as how the Rock's breakout role in Hollywood was as The Scorpion King, (extremely) loosely based on the Protodynastic King of Egypt some believe was in fact a title for Narmer, he of Narmer Pallette fame, I bet he's got a lot of fans in corner offices.


Because you know when that's your big break, some very influential people have big plans for you. Very big plans indeed.

Adventures Beyond the (MK)Ultraworld (UPDATED)

Yes, they said "adrenochrome"

OK, I'm back. Miss me? Really? Aww.

Anyway, as per usual in the new normal there's more insanity out there to sort through than I have time or space to do it, and as per usual my valued spies and esteemed moles have been scanning the Borgsong for dank syncs and slipping them under my door (and per usual there are sadly more of those than I can process but I greatly appreciate them all the same). 

You'd think the mad parade would slow down for the summer but Entrainment never sleeps.

Time and Thai, or Please Come Home for Mithras


I'm still collating the information we're hearing coming out of Thailand concerning the rescue of a boys' soccer team and their coach from a cave that was flooded by monsoon rains. I'm not going on record with any of this quite yet but we're seeing quite a lot of ritual and symbol tied up in all of this, both overt and perhaps somewhat less so.

Which makes perfect sense given the way things have been going this year.

Friday, July 06, 2018

Infotrainment Week: Hunk of Burning Love


Well, it looks like the Wicker Man meme isn't going anywhere any time soon. I wish it would; the Nic Cage travesty nearly ruined the original for me.  

But what exactly is the pretext here?


Tuesday, July 03, 2018

The Killing Moon, the River of Death (UPDATED)


I understand some people might still not grasp the sheer, cyclopean scale of the Tsunami of Sync surrounding the drowning death of an obscure yet highly-regarded rock singer twenty-one years ago, or the mind-boggling width and depth of the high strangeness hovering over that singer's onetime lover, herself a well-regarded (and immensely influential) cult singer. 

Not to mention a strange attractor the likes of which I've never even imagined, never mind've seen.

All These Things Must Come to Pass



Hello friends. Are you enjoying the Secret Sunification of the entire world? 

You aren't? 


Well, just don't say I didn't warn you.

Explosions in the Sky: Supernovas and Star Sorcery



The glowing Orb is officially a thing. We keep seeing it in odd places, most recently this enigmatic music video from Ariana Grande (with a guest appearance by Nikki Minaj, who seems to be fraying a bit at the edges lately). 

A lot of Truthers have seen the song and music video "The Light is Coming" as another pop hymn to Lucifer, and they're probably right, at least after a fashion. 

Maybe partially right is a better way to put it.

Spies, Cylons and Sex Cults


What we were just saying about the inevitable return of public human sacrifice? It looks as if The Telegraph is helping plant those subliminal seeds in the mass mind. 

That's awesome. Because there isn't enough ritual-sacrifice symbolism out there in the media already.

Friday, June 22, 2018

Serpents, Sirens, Solstices and Supernovas


Well, Happy Belated Summer Solstice to all you Northern Hemishere Secret Sunners out there. Hope you enjoyed it, if that's your particular bag. If not, well hey; buy yourself something nice today.

And whether the Solstice is your bag or not, I hope everyone had a lovely day and enjoyed the remaining time we have left before Solstice celebrations become mandatory.

Shimmer Me Timbers, or Annihilation Reconsidered



Well, in the grand Secret Sun tradition I am finally getting around to posting my thoughts on Annihilation, the recent(ish) sci-fi film starring Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tessa Thompson. 

The TL;DR? I liked the film quite a bit. But I probably would have liked it quite a bit more if it were fiction.

Secret Sun Scrabble: Nephilim and I Can't Get Up

Go eff yourself, Science

As usual it's been a week filled with syncs, signs and signals.  So much so that it's time to drag out the card table, serve up the artisanal cheese puffs and strawberry-wheat microbrews and play a few rounds of Secret Sun Scrabble.

And why not? Everyone else out there seems to be.


Thursday, June 14, 2018

I'm Looking Through a Hole in the Sky




There's no letup in the action around Secret Sun Central. I have a huge and growing backlog of posts to finish and the symbols and syncs show no signs of slowing down. I do want to try to hammer all of this into some kind of coherent exegesis but you gotta fish while they're biting. There's always time to filet it all later.

But I thought I'd just drop in a sizzle reel of highlights amongst the crushing inventory of data that I'm trying to wrap my head around and give everyone at least a taste of where I'm going with all of this. 

So do pay attention. This will be on the test.
