Eros Ouranos Thanatos



Well, I have some good news, some bad news and some insanely-terrible news. Which do you want to hear first?

OK, the good news? The world is being re-paganized at an almost-unimaginably rapid pace.

The bad news? The world is being re-paganized at an almost-unimaginably rapid pace.

The insanely-terrible news? The world is being re-paganized at an almost-unimaginably rapid pace.

Where There's Smoke...

Inversion much?

I'll never forget the day when my grandpappy and I were fishing down at the crick. The sun was going down and we were gathering up our gear and fixing to head back to the old homestead. 

Gramps suddenly got a weird glint in his eye and said, "Boy, when it comes to elite mind control cults and sex traffickin', don't you pay no never-mind to what them fancy society boys on the wireless try and tell you. Where's there's smoke, there's always hellfire."

Then he threw a bucket-full of tadpoles in the air and said "Great gosh-a-mighty! Tadpoles! It's rainin' tadpoles! The Good Lord is passin' judgment on this here Babylon! Pray for your immortal soul, boy!"

Of course, I thought ol' Gramps was batshit crazy. But then again I hadn't heard much about NXIVM back then.

Buckle Up and Enjoy the Ride.


So this NXIVM sex cult story just keeps getting uglier and weirder. Allison Mack, the co-star of the long-running Smallville TV series has been thrown to the wolves and is reportedly angling for a plea deal. And with good reason, it seems:
In legal documents, the United States Attorney writes that the defendant, aka Allison Mack, “is charged with using force, fraud, and coercion to recruit and maintain DOS slaves, and instructing those slaves to engage in sexual acts with Raniere, among other assignments. The defendant aggressively recruited DOS slaves and required those slaves to recruit slaves of their own.”

Don't go planning that Mediterranean victory cruise just yet, Ally.

Wild Wild Country, or the Kingdoms of the Cults


By now you've probably heard of--if not seen-- the Netflix documentary series Wild Wild Country about Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh's (AKA Osho) cult and their takeover of a tiny city in rural Oregon in the 1980s. It's a fascinating story, one that I remember watching news reports on back in the day quite well.

This being the 80s, the spin generally tended to veer towards, "look at these crazy cultists, up there rutting and chanting and losing their marbles. Aren't they horrible? Isn't this an affront to our American way of life?" To which my response tended to be along the lines of, "Holy crap, that place looks awesome."

Hormones. They cloud the mind.

Mother of Pearl: Addenda


Wellesley, you see, is not just a place ... but an idea ... an experiment in excellence in which diversity is not just tolerated, but is embraced. 
The essence of this spirit was captured in a moving speech about tolerance given last year by a student body president of one of your sister colleges. She related the story by Robert Fulghum about a young pastor, finding himself in charge of some very energetic children, hits upon a game called "Giants, Wizards, and Dwarfs." "You have to decide now," the pastor instructed the children, "which you are ... a giant, a wizard or a dwarf?" 
At that, a small girl tugging at his pants leg, asked, "But where do the mermaids stand?" 
The pastor tells her there are no mermaids. "Oh yes there are," she said. "I am a mermaid." 
Now this little girl knew what she was and she was not about to give up on either her identity or the game. She intended to take her place wherever mermaids fit into the scheme of things. Where do mermaids fit into the scheme of things? 
--- Barbara Bush, Commencement Address to the Wellesley College Class of 1990

Entrainment Tonight: Mother of Pearl



Why aren't you wearing your Pearls, citizen? We noticed you didn't wear your Orange yesterday, either. I need to swipe your social credits card, please. 

OK, I think we might have a bit of a problem here. Sit tight, I need to call my supervisor.

It's the End of the World As We Know It (and Larry Fine)


Hey, giant extraterrestrial demons on the roof of the most prestigious museum in the western hemisphere? Sure, why not? Go for it. I mean it is 2018, right? 

Take a good long look, my friends. You're looking at the future. 

Don't worry, they come in peace. Don't he look peaceful? A regular pussycat.

The Great Seal Decoded. Finally.



Oh, you thought you lived in a rational world ruled by people who didn't hold weird, occultic beliefs about outer space and all the rest of it?

That's sweet.

Syria: Trump, Templars and Sympathetic Meteor Magic.

IF we analyse the principles of thought on which magic is based, they will probably be found to resolve themselves into two: first, that like produces like, or that an effect resembles its cause; and, second, that things which have once been in contact with each other continue to act on each other at a distance after the physical contact has been severed. 
The former principle may be called the Law of Similarity, the latter the Law of Contact or Contagion. -- Sir James Frazer, The Golden Bough

Apocalypse Tonight: Saddle Up, Horsemen!


Well, I told y'all that something big was coming just in time for the Lyrid meteor showers but I never dreamed it would be World War Three!

Apocalypse This Week: Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment


OK, so much entrainment, so little time. I'm a bit harried at the moment --and there is so much going on all around us and so much being dumped on our heads -- that it's all rather overwhelming. 

So let's dive in and I'll let all you very smart folks pick up the slack in the comments.

"The Women for Whom the Watchers Fell Shall Become Sirens..."



She's Watching you...

"It never ends" isn't some nifty little tagline I cooked up for dramatic effect. It's a blunt, objective statement of fact.

Case in point: an anonymous reader chimed in on the previous thread and dropped such a depth-charge on my humble little exegesis that I'm still feeling a bit woozy. 

All of a sudden all kinds of dots previously floating around in the Ether have connected, logged into the quantum mainframe, and kicked this whole saga into a much higher gear...

Orange is the New Black Magic



Just wanted to drop in with a couple quick updates on recent events and topics we've been looking at here. There is so much going on and things are moving so quickly that I don't really have the luxury of time with this material. By the time you cover one story, another takes its place.

And of course the big story today is the YouTube shootings, apparently committed by a disgruntled content creator named Nasim Najafi Aghdam, who was allegedly angry that her videos were being de-monetized. 

Or should I say demon-etized? Because Nasim had crazy to spare and then some more. And then a few more cartons of cray-cray stashed up in the crawlspace.

And Right On Schedule...


Well, for the past several months I've been droning on about Mermaids and the Apocalypse and CRISPR and transgenics and chimeras, and everyone's gotten a good chuckle out of it. "Oh, that Secret Sun nutcase, howling at the Moon like a right old lunatic. Always good for a few lulz." 

Well, I don't want to spoil anyone's fun but right on schedule we have a new film on Netflix called The Titan, which is about guess-what?

Mermaids and CRISPR and transgenics and chimeras. 

Plus, the Apocalypse.
