Sync Log: Bono Signaling to the Algol Cult?

It never fails. As soon as you stumble on to some weird mystery no one else was looking for you get hit with syncs that send you even further down the rabbit hole.

So I hopped in the car immediately after decoding the Eye-in-Triangle meme/gesture as a signal towards Algol and Triangulum. I had some stuff I had to get in the mail. I turn the ignition on and the air is filled with the queasy strains of U2's tuneless Madchester knockoff, "The Fly." I can't even remember the last time I heard that stinker on the radio.

What could be the connection you might ask? Well, read on...

Scorpio Rising, or Hunter is the Hunted


We all know everything we see and hear from the corporate media is a lie of some variety, but the question needs to be asked: is everything also a ritual? 

Or has the line of demarcation between ritual and reality become so blurred that it's now impossible to tell the difference anymore?

To the Shores of (Sam) Tripoli

I had a blast, a hoot and a holler on Sam Tripoli's Tin Foil Hat podcast, which you can check out at his site here. 


I was invited to go on to talk about the Siren but we ended up talking about pretty much everything but. I've been asked to come back for an election special next week, so keep your eyes out for that.

Here's that link again.

Laugh While You Still Can

The Oracle of Grangemouth by Kara Bohleman

Recently, an Onion knock-off called The Hard Times took aim at yours truly with a piece called, "We Figured Out What Cocteau Twins Were Saying but It’s Too Late, the Prophecy Is Already in Motion." The byline is apparently a fake name, but I'm guessing this guy heard me on Greg's show or another podcast on YouTube. 

Or maybe he was dunking on that other guy running around ranting about the Cocteau Apocalypse.

All My Heroes Are Dead, Part 1,984: Eddie Van Halen

 Well, it's that time again, folks: time to mourn the passing of another giant. And also to mourn the abominably pitiful state our culture is in, particularly pop culture.  

Eddie Van Halen, arguably the most influential guitarist in Rock n' Roll history, passed away at the age of 65 after a long battle with cancer. It's a milestone worth noting, even if the strong, confident, high-T America that Van Halen once epitomized has been dead for quite some time.

Temples of the Necropolis


Comedian and podcaster Eric Hollerbach was kind enough to take his Highway Diary up my way for a two-hour freeform throwdown on these very, very strange times we all find ourselves in. In order to set the mood, I took him to the Necropolis, which was in all its glory on a ten-best day of the year.
