Born to Kill

All right, this bullshit again. 

I was planning to do a post about the anniversary of Chris Cornell's death but here we are. I don't have a lot to say about this that isn't being said already, mind you.

 The only thing that caught my eye about this latest tophet-party was how it speaks to the total confusion of symbolism and semiotics we're all drowning in as the entire planet tiptoes towards the ultimate psychotic break.

Plus, the syncs. Or variously, the "syncs." 

Plus, the witchcraft.

In case you're a very smart and wise person and have been avoiding the media and the Internet all day, there was another school shooting, this time in Santa Fe, Texas. There's been an arrest and as per usual, multiple reports of an accomplice and/or second shooter have been flushed down the memory hole.

The accused shooter (or patsy, if you roll that way) is one Dimitrios Pagourtzis. Dimitrios is the Greek masculine variant of Demeter, literally meaning "Earth Mother." If you choose to bust out your Downard after we're done here I won't think any less of you.

On Walpurgisnicht, or the Witches' Sabbath, young Dimitrios showed off his black duster which was sprinkled with a riot of potent but incoherent symbolism, declaring his ostensible allegiance to International Communism, Japanese Imperialism, Satanism or Templarism, German Militarism and purple prose.

He also wore a Bi-Pride pin and was said by a classmate to have confessed to a belief in evil (note how Buzzfeed chose to conflate the two). Quite a confused young lad, our Dimitrios.

This also happened today- a crate of ammo dropped from a military chopper and crashed into Parkland Elementary School. 

That's Parkland, Texas not Parkland, Florida. But I understand your confusion.

Speaking of confusion, a FB member spotted this little sync here- the apparent similarity and/or resemblance of Dimitrious to a character in the new Deadpool movie that opened today.

Here's the skinny:
Recovering at the X-Mansion, Wilson agrees to join the X-Men as a form of healing. He, Colossus, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead respond to a standoff between authorities and the unstable young mutant Russell Collins / Firefist at an orphanage, labeled a "Mutant Reeducation Center."  
Wilson realizes that Collins has been abused by the orphanage staff, and kills one of the staff members. Colossus stops him from killing anyone else, and both Wilson and Collins are arrested. Restrained with collars that negate their powers, they are taken to the "Icebox", an isolated prison for mutant criminals. 
Meanwhile, the cybernetic soldier Cable finds his family murdered by Collins in the future, and travels back in time to kill the boy before he ever becomes a murderer.
Such is the world in which we live. Firefist is an avatar of sorts, don't you think?

Not having seen the film I can't say exactly why our Wade is floating there in a swan-boat, but even so it got me to thinking of Cygnus and the Love Goddess, which is to say Vega and the Siren. Perhaps some other time.

If you're not familiar with Santa Fe, it's a suburb of Houston (being a city we've discussed quite a bit of late). It's also just south of Pearland. So school shootings and Pearls again.  

Santa Fe is named in honor of Saint Faith, herself part of a trinity of sorts with Saints Hope and Charity. Their mother is Saint Sophia, and don't worry, I won't say a word about you-know-who and you-know-whatDo note that Santa Fe is associated with Orange, though. Just like Venus.

Note that Santa Fe's feast day was Sept. 30, or October First Eve. 

Well, I just made that holiday up but you get the point.

For my money, I'd say Faith, Hope and Charity were simply Christianizations of the Charities, better known today as the Three Graces. 

Speaking of Demeter, the Charities were strongly connected to Mystery cult centers like Eleusis and during Bacchanalia. They were said to dance to Apollo's sacred music, meaning his lyre meaning, well, you know.

The Charities were often associated with death and the Underworld and so sacrifices would be made to them during rituals to the Earth Mother.

Speaking of Apollo's Lyre and the Underworld, it appears there's a musical based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice called Hadestown. Its original cast features Eff-Jay Uckley-Bay lookalike/soundalike Reeve Carney, who is ultimately responsible for getting me fixated on all this  Elizabeth Fraser business in the first place.

Because. It. Never. Ends.

Oddly enough, Santa Fe and her sisters are also revered by Freemasons, which is unusual for Catholic saints.

Do also note that Santa Fe is customarily pictured with a frond or sheaf, much like our friend Virgo.

Do also note that Santa Fe and her family are often represented by a Y form, which some of you might find familiar. Well, anyway.

10 died in Santa Fe today but 110 were involved in a deadly plane crash in Cuba as well. Last I heard three people had survived but were grievously injured.

UPDATE: OK, reader JJ alerts us to the fact that the plane went down in the town of Santiago de las Vegas.

Speaking of sacrifices, some news outlets are floating some ridiculous theory that 64 year-old millionaire Stephen Paddock mowed down a bunch of people at a Country music festival because he was a right-wing gun-nut. This is all based on anecdotes that literally don't even rise to the level of hearsay. A lot of news outlets chose not to run with the story, which I find very telling.

Things must be getting desperate out there in Sin City. Maybe it's because of the SWAT video and new reports that an officer discharged a gun in Paddock's hotel room.

I'm thinking maybe the gun was actually discharged into Paddock. 

What's more, there were reports of a masked gunman parading around a Las Vegas mall last night. The offender was arrested and the gun turned out to be fake.

But do note the mall is surrounded by schools.

And then this report about some gym-rat storming into one of Trump's resorts and getting into a gun battle with police. We seem to hearing a lot of these stories, in which random gun battles are taking place at pivotal locations and not arousing anything more but mild interest from the media.

Let's just see if we can tie Santa Fe into our meta-narrative for a moment, shall we?

UPDATE: This fellow was a stripper? 

You all know about Chris Cornell's death, its links to MGM and the Siren and so on and so forth, and you've seen my little decoding as to the last track on Heaven or Las Vegas, which follows another two tracks connected to Cornell's bestie, Jeff Buckley.

Oddly enough, Santa Fe's saint day in the Eastern-- or Greek church-- is September 17th, the day in which Stephen Paddock rolled into Las Vegas for the very last time and the day in which Heaven or Las Vegas was released 9+9+9 years prior.

And we've discussed how Cornell's restaurant was across the street from the Four Seasons in a kind of reversal of Four Seasons Las Vegas' proximity to Mandalay Bay.

Now, I generally don't like to lapse into this kind of thing but "Frou" can be rendered as an anagram for Four, hence Frou Frou reading as Four-Four, giving us another connection between Cornell's death and Heaven Upside Down or Las Vegas. 

Namely Four Seasons Paris and Four Seasons Las Vegas.

Plus, the All-Important 44. Of course.

UPDATE: Reader J alerts us to the new Fox Theatre marquee and logo, which by dint of utterly acausal serendipity now incorporate griffins (aka Lyra and Leo, yet again). 

You know, like at Luxor Las Vegas.

POSTSCRIPT: A reader turned me onto this interesting connection- the similarity between the NXIVM brandings and Masonic marks, a practice that dates back thousands of years. It's an interesting theory, one that only adds to the mystery of that creepy mind-control/sex cult. 

There's a lot more to that story than meets the eye even at this point. I'm certain of it.
