Meet Your New Gods, Same as the Old Gods


Take a good look at the future, my friends. Pretty much everything I've been ranting about to anyone who will listen these past fourteen years is encapsulated into eight short minutes of canned video of a fake performance in front of a fake crowd gathered in a fake Times Square. 

Let's start with a legal review. You know the first three:

Knowles' First Law is, "Whenever a controversy over symbolism erupts in the media, it's usually disguising a completely different symbolic message altogether."

Knowles' Second Law is, "The old blood sacrifice state cults will be re-established under the cover of Woke." 

Knowles' Second Law, Paragraph A is, "The old statues currently being torn down will eventually be replaced by the icons and idols of the new/old state cult."

Let's add an amendment that'd been debated on the floor and has since passed into law:

Knowles' Second Law, Paragraph B is, "Cultural spectacles will re-introduce the public to the new/old state cult."

Remember, ignorance of the law is no excuse, doubly so when it comes to Knowles' Laws. So with that in mind, let's look at the latest ratcheting up of the new symbolic world order.

This latest marriage of corporate feudalism and state cultism is so extravagant, so egregious, so explicit as to batter the brain. All amid a plaster pagan pantheon that looks like it was hauled in from the Fountains of Wayne bankruptcy auction. Or maybe donated by the estate of a recently-deceased Mafiosi. Or shipped in from Trump's penthouse. Either way, note the Ring of Saturn/Kronos looming over the proceedings.

And of course, Jennifer Lopez was tapped to officiate and play the wedding cake, 

Or is she just the latest faux-diva to sing the part of Mystery Babalon? You know what horse I'll be betting on.

I can't quite parse the glitter cage JLo was wearing, though. Had she been playing behind the plate for the Versace Medusas before her set and forgot to change? Or perhaps that's some kind of oral chastity mask. Was the big show she made yanking it off some kind of signal that Mystery Babalon has been unleashed? 

I'm thinking maybe all of the above. It's impossible to overestimate the level of not-subtleness with these proceedings.

Anyhow, JLo pretended to sing along with musicians who pretended to play a couple of her "hits" that pretend to be actual songs for a sad handful of friends and family members pretending to be a crowd. It was all as grim and soul-destroying as it sounds.

I don't know where the Greek chorus of background vocalists were supposed to be coming from, unless the tacky statues themselves were singing along. Do note our old friend Jupiter lounging at the front of the stage. Probably scanning the crowd for fresh catamites.

Couldn't quite parse the winged torch-bearer, either. Was it Nike? Hekate? Or perhaps just Mithras in drag, yet again. Seeing how we have this conjunction of JLo in a shoulder-padded pantsuit in front and RuPaul in the back, that one gets my vote.

I did get a kick out of this shot: Apollo sniffing JLo's armpit as she butchered Aerosmith's "Dream On." JLo does take very good care of herself, so I'm sure her pits smell very nice. I'm guessing like apricots.

As you might've guessed, I'm not surprised by any of this seeing as how JLo already made the Secret Sunniest video ever back in 2019. I know some of you are still in denial, but this was all just yet another classic case of high priests sidling up against the Sibyl, trying to rub off a bit of that magic for their own workings. 

Of course, that's the way it's always worked, at least back to the Bronze Age and likely long before that. That's the only reason why Sibyls and Pythias were tolerated in the first place. 

Nothing substantial has changed, outside the invasive reach of the technology. And there's still some folks that might argue that's just a return to the status quo anyway.

Before you do that, get a chuckle out of the ad that popped up before said JLo video. Medusy sure looks juicy, don't you think?

And here's an announcement I never thought I'd make: after a three-year interment, the Secret Sun Facebook Group is back. 

It wasn't my doing: Facebook reactivated it on their own and press-ganged a member to act as admin. Unfortunately for them, they chose a stand-up guy (and seriously hilarious dude) for the job and he promptly handed the keys back to me.

So if you were a member before, come by and say hello. If you're interested in joining afresh, I'll post the deets within the next 48 hours. 

We now rejoin our sci-fi dystopia, already in progress...
