*Hey! Don’t dust dump dose dere, Kicky… /sigh… Nevermind…*

Yesterday, Dear Reader, full of snotty summer cold and limply languishing on my Library sofa, I decided to invest my sick-note time in listening to the above lecture by Dr Jordan Peterson. It was based around the animated classic ‘Pinocchio’. And it was all Cade’s fault…

*/coughs… True, Kicky… /clears throat… Der Doc referenced Pinocchio in der stuff we lissend to earlier in da week. Snot all Cade’s fault, granted, but ‘e did start it yesderday with dose overnight DMs ‘e sent me…*

*/sniffs… Give a little whistle, yeah… /blows dose…*

*/thinks… Dat was one of der uvver little talk we lissend to, Kicky… /rolls eyes… Syncs…*

… Well, nearly all Cade’s fault, Dear Reader. MEROVEE Frank in the Red universe contributed as well…

After replying to Frank, I decided to search for anything else the good Doctor might have said about the story of ‘Pinocchio’…

… And he has…

*Ah… ah… ah…*

*Gesundheit! Yeah, a bid of a monster, Kicky…*

So, Dear Reader, if you fancy listening to the breakdown of a Gnostic story, with a Christianity overlay, and you have seven hours to spare, then I highly recommend you partake in the stack of videos that appear at the top of this post. Have a Song…

 

Missive From ‘Merica: Sunday Special

Dear Reader, having spent the past – just shy of – seven years immersed in ‘Synchromysticism’, it is my contention that ‘Synchronicity’ is in fact a language. So, it was really interesting to stumble across this video the other evening…

*/lights up… Imagine discovering the blueprints to the ‘Ark’… /drags… and then getting to build it… /streams smoke… And it’s fuckin’ round…*

*You’re not wrong, Clicky… /smokes…*

Lucky us, Dear Reader 😀 Not only is it Sunday, but we have a tasty, new missive from the Okie Devil of Text US to digest, along with lunch…

Enjoy! ❤

*******

I am in a moving daze.

I guess I shouldn’t be nervous about moving, but I am.

Moving day is fast approaching.

And no, your eyes are not deceiving you in that image above, nor is it taking forever to load. Getting used to “smooth stuff”, then seeing something “less smooth”, can really fuck with your perception(s), eh?

^Better Off Alone^

We get destroyed because we refuse knowledge. That’s something the following video espouses. In a world where there is loads of hidden knowledge and/or knowledge that I’m told not to seek, I’m ultimately going to get the deep-six for not being more knowledgeable.

And what about all the fucks that intentionally keep knowledge secret? I’m not talking about who you are fucking, your annual income or what your FICO score is, but these bits of information that are tucked away in secure locations specifically for the purpose of keeping people in the dark and/or retaining power for themselves and their organization(s).

Which speaking of fucking, income and FICO scores, what are the odds that there are those who know those things about me? I’m not suggesting that I’m getting laid (because I’m not), nor that I have any money (I don’t), but I do have a FICO score.

Anyway, this doc is kinda dumb, it’s all “rah rah” about something or another but I’m not sure as to what, and I had to turn it off @ 21:21.

^THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOREVER TIME:#7 THE GOD KNOWLEDGE^

With that bullshit in mind…

Q: What is the first thing that people do with knowledge?

A: This little light of mine? I'm gonna let it shine?

Nope…straight to the bushel to hide that shit before someone tries to steal it and/or extinguish it. But before we get into copyrights and patents, franchising rights, ancillary rights, corporate espionage and all those wonderful financial perks, let’s get practical. If you suddenly know “the answer to life the universe and everything”, what in the hell are you to do with it?

It’s gonna take some time to figure that out, so burying your new found knowledge may be a matter of practicality more than anything else. After all, knowing how to melt lead isn’t really that big of a deal, especially when compared to the concept of removing melted lead from your face because some asshole dropped water into the crucible full of melted lead, which instantly caused the water to evaporate/become steam, which created an explosion that blew hot melted lead in your face.

Didn't think of that even being a possibility, did ya? 

So yeah, the difference between knowledge and wisdom is…time? Application(s)? Experience(s)?

^This Little Light of Mine Lyrics : Christian Hymns with Lyrics^

Yes, the story about the melted lead + water comes from real life. One day at school, I just so happened to be standing right next to a lead-melter, when a guy walks up and drops an unmelted piece of lead into the crucible, and this unmelted piece of lead had just been washed but not dried, so it had water on it. The water immediately turned to steam, this created a huge steam-bubble in the lead, and the whole mess exploded. One guy got melted lead on his face, one of my welding gloves got hot lead all over it, another guy got it on his arm and shirt, and the ceiling was covered in lead. BTW, the ceilings in this room were about 15 feet high, so this explosion was quite energetic. Who would have ever thought that a few drops of water could explode several pounds of melted lead? What’s that? You see no correlation in knowing everything and practical application(s) and/or actualizations in a causal universe?

Is church/going to church the same as attending a party?

I just wanna belong to you.

Or whatever.

^Jay Lumen – Babel (Original Mix)^

This is kinda strange…

Now, that caught my eye because I immediately empathized with being in pain and feeling like a criminal for taking medication for it. Some of the pharmacies/pharmacists here in the US used to treat me like I was a criminal for being in a pain management program. You take your prescription in to the pharmacy, they see the medication your prescription is for, their face goes cold, they have to “check and see if they have any in stock” and many times say they don’t, even when they do have your medication, then they have to do 80 checks and verifications…

it's a totally humiliating experience

I think that was the point tho’: make the process of filling certain prescriptions non-cost effective + make the patient feel like complete and total shit. Anyway, if you’re smoking grass for pain, I can empathize. But what’s all this business about “Oklebueha N.A.C.” and membership?

 Sounds...native

Oklevueha NAC death toll

Rut roh!!! I get the feeling this is not about cannabis, and what in the fuck is the Cult Education Institute? Why is someone going to a doctor, to get medicine, from a church? I’m totally lost here. Is Uncle Sam not getting a cut or something? Getting grass from a doctor because it’s part of a church ritual?

/shrug
^Astrix & Avalon – Moonshine^

What is really strange to me  is where I started (empathy), and where I wound up (confusion). I mean, don’t most churches usually provide what you need for a particular service or sacrament or whatever.

Oklevueha Native American Church

OK…so…um…some dudes were tripping balls on peyote, and one dude gave another “permission” to “take peyote to the white man”? Yeah, I can see why some may see this “church” as being sketchy as fuck. There’s even a picture of some hand-scrawled note? Seems to me that you either got the juice, or you don’t. Can a Sioux Blessing be retracted? Surely there’s a caveat there in the event whitey gets out of control and starts acting a fool? White people are known for that kind of behavior after all.

^Saltwater (Original) by Chicane^

When I went to a Christian private school in 7th and 8th grade, one of the requirements of attending this school was that you be a member of a church and attend regularly. So in order to be in one group, you also had to be a member of another group. Lose your affiliation with one group, lose your affiliation with the other. So when my parents stopped going to church during my 8th grade year, I was in a bit of a quandary. This quandary was made even worse when my mother got a job playing the piano at a Methodist church. I started attending this church so that I could keep going to school. Problem was, there was a caveat. Ya see, this school I went to was a “Christian” school…

meaning, Baptist

There was some controversy regarding whether or not my attending a Methodist church actually counted as “active attendance in a church”, and the administration actively encouraged me to find a good, wholesome Christian church to attend since my soul was in jeopardy.

^Boney M – Rasputin 2017 Blue Remix^

I know, I know, as a Baptist, once you are saved you are saved forever and ever, and your soul can never again be in jeopardy. Baptists believe that Salvation is a gift that is given freely, accepted freely, and once obtained, it cannot be lost…

but there's a catch

Ya see, if you are really saved, like for really-real all the way saved, you won’t backslide or wander off the path because a saved soul will not depart from the path of Jesus. If you are saved, you will never drink beer, and more than that you will never even have an urge to drink beer. As such, if you want to drink a beer, you may not actually be saved, and if you actually drink a beer, you are most definitely not saved and you’d better get saved before you turn into a lush. You are passively taught to constantly question your salvation, even tho you are actively taught to NEVER EVAR question your salvation.

 Weird, eh? Digress
^Reeson – Anubis (original mix)^

What I’m primarily thinking about here is membership being requisite for membership. Being able to join one group only because you are a member of another group. Professionals. How the fuck do you get your foot in the door? Join a group.

Q: What organizations did Jesus belong to?

A: ?ó¿ó?

To be fair, he was number 13 (or number 1 depending on how you look at it) in a gaggle of miscreants that wandered around getting into trouble, so I guess that kinda counts as a group. Guess it only makes sense that we’d form our own groups based on that original group, and we do so in order to try and recapture that magic the original group produced. Kinda weird to think that a copycat anything would produce the same magic as an original group or original idea. In fact, it almost sounds counter-intuitive when you think about it.

^Skazi & Paranormal Attack – Opa (Official Audio)^

Ever heard of a television series called “Another Life”? Just saw someone talking about it on a forum, and they mentioned that in the very first episode of the series, there is “a male crew member on a space ship wearing stiletto  heels”. They then went on to rant about producers pandering to certain viewing demographics, and I cannot help but agree that stiletto heels on a space ship seems quite impractical. I mean sure, the character Klinger on the show M*A*S*H was cross-dressing in a war zone, but that was a comedy, so it was OK. A dude wearing “women’s footware” on a spaceship in a serious drama is just…fucked up.

*Triggered*

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

<yawn>

Wait, is this show even a drama? Does that matter?

^A normal day in Russia…^

‘Tis now Saturday morning, and I find it odd that I stumbled into a bunch of controversy last night regarding…groups. Mainly groups and the power(s) they wield. Shouldn’t be shocking tho, because isn’t that the point of groups? To wield power? Use that power against your foes?

In this case, it’s centered around some dude who may have stumbled onto a cure for cancer, and the battle that ensued as a result of this find. It would appear that there are those who aren’t real happy about their infrastructure(s) around cancer crumbling, and they also want a piece of this cancerous pie. Who in the FUCK would want a piece of cancer?

Food and Drug Administration

BTW, do not believe anything in that Wikipedia article, as all Wikipedia articles are fake and/or full of disinformation. That’s what I’ve been told anyway.

Burzynski Clinic

That’s where a lot of the controversy seems to start, and that rather dubious sounding Wikipedia page is only scratching the surface. There’s also a pretty good documentary on this dude, his practice, and what he’s been through, but I’ll let Roob add that somewhere if she so desires.

^Blastoyz – Mandala^

If you want to be somewhere, and where you currently at is not that somewhere you want to be, could it be said that your being in the one place you don’t want to be, is in fact the best starting point for you getting to where you do want to be?

That’s why I use Wikipedia articles, and have no plans to stop using them. Yes, Wikipedia itself is full of shitbirds and hacks who have their own agendas. But how is this different from anywhere else? Are you really trying to tell me that The Washington Post isn’t full of people who are on multiple payrolls? The Guardian? Pravda? China Daily? Hell, the news organizations themselves are on multiple payrolls via advertisers and special interest groups of all kinds, so why in the fuck wouldn’t their employees follow suit and rent out their services to the highest bidder(s)? Anyway, being in a bad place might sometimes help you get to where it is you want to be.

^Nicky Romero – Toulouse^

The only reason I can see groups wanting to be “the source” would be distributive in nature. You really don’t care what you are selling, you just want to be selling it. You want to be the place that people come to move merchandise, and you get a piece of everything.

This was going to originally be a blog post on my own blog, but circumstances have arisen to change that. I’m only mentioning this because the above may be a travesty for Roob to deal with since I didn’t write it with her in mind.

Meh, she'll tame the fuck out of it I'm sure

Good luck Roob, and God be with you in your editorial efforts.

Dear Reader, Rutger Hauer has died and fucking Twitter has fucked my ‘selfies’ by ‘improving’ its layout. But it’s not all bad news: the LoL has received a new missive from Cade, the Okie Devil of Text US. A mid-week treat for us all to enjoy. So Doo! ❤

WHAT AM I DOING HERE?

We seem to spend a good portion of our lives trying to be found.

WHERE IS EVERYONE?

We also seem to spend a good portion of our lives telling others to go away.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING HERE?

Very strange indeed, eh?

Now that you’ve read that, I need you to stop reading this, go read the rest of this, then fuck off.

^Slow Motion! Hot Light – Dynamite (Original Mix)^

Howdy. I have nothing clever or earth-shattering to say for an opening, so lets us jump right in.

What is hallucinogen-persisting perception disorder?

That begs questions as to the nature of any and all experiences that we as humans can have. Especially the extraordinary experiences that are not drug induced/drug related. Those experiences which are traumatic or exhilarating could leave some lasting marks, yeah? Perhaps even more so seeing as how the sensory input is not going to be just/only visual stimulus.

Q: Can blind people drop acid and see weird shit?

A: OK, OK, not just LSD, but any kind of hallucinogen

Surely some completely mad and totally twisted government somewhere in the world has tried this out on blind and/or visually impaired people. Maybe even deaf people too. And what I’m thinking here is primarily the nature of perception during “a trip”, maybe why people see what they see whilst they are tripping, what sensory input(s) are driving these visions, and most importantly of all…when.

Yeah like, if I saw something 4 years ago, heard something 11 years ago, and felt something 45 years ago, then take a hallucinogenic drug, are all of those things going to aggregate somehow and affect my current trip? The funny part about all this nonsense is that the article, above, is not really what inspired me to sit down and start writing this morning. It was a few of the articles listed in ‘Related Coverage’ at the bottom of the article page, above. I’m not gonna link them here, but the articles listed were on the subjects of ‘psychosis’, ‘PTSD’, and ‘tactile hallucinations’.

^So Inagawa – Selfless State^

Ya see, me and Roob are watching a TV show called ‘The Man In The High Castle’. The show seems to be centered around trauma(s), as well as the decision making processes before, during and after these traumas.

!!!ACHTUNG!!!

!!! 危険 !!!

!!!SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

!!! JUST SAYIN'!!!

There’s not much happy going on in this show. In fact there is virtually nothing happy going on in this show. Everyone seems to be in a big hurry to get away from the current traumatic experience in order to get to their next traumatic experience. So much so, that the characters seem to actually be driving this and these traumatic flows. No one has any moments of clarity and stops what they are doing…

oh no they don't

…they gotta undo and/or rectify the previous trauma by creating a new one. Hrm…sounds a bit like those “resets” I hear mentioned here and there.

Digress

Anyway, they had some people doing some LSD in this series, and it was just prior to the big reveal that there are people bouncing around alternate universes, where the outcomes to World War II are different than the ones in our own history books here. In episode 1 of season 3, they get around to addressing the trauma(s) of travel of this nature. Basically, the idea of distinguishing what is real, where and how. You saw your mom die in the fires of Hiroshima, then suddenly, you are whisked away to a universe where she is fine and dandy.

So which one is real? 

You know both of the experiences, appear to have been real, but one experience is happening now because you are present, and the other…well…you aren’t there anymore…so…yeah…it did happen, but it isn’t happening now only because you aren’t there to experience it…even tho it did indeed happen, so you are always kinda experiencing it.

Make sense? No? Yeah? Both? Yeah...

I think that is some of these characters’ issue(s)…their not really sure what to do except keep going forward from where they are. BUT!!! There’s a twist.

^Gregory Porter – Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix)^

Most people in this show have no clue that the outcome(s) were different elsewhere. As a result, they just keep doing what they’ve been doing, and they do so with absolutely no regard for “what might have been were the outcome(s) different”. So with respect to drugs, reading that article above got me to wondering about the decision-making processes that lead to unexpected outcomes. We wanted to expand our mind, we drank our Ayahuasca, we had our experience. Then years later something unexpected starts happening…we start having flashbacks of that experience and/or similar experiences in the now, even tho we’ve not taken any more Ayahuasca.

WTF?!?!?

From a writing standpoint…

Q: Does the complete absence of humor make potentially sappy or corny stuff seem more serious?

A: ¿??

The thought of Americans wandering around in Nazi uniforms and/or Americans subscribing to Nazi principles on American soil is prolly a stretch for most. So, I can see this series potentially coming off to some as being totally preposterous and just downright silly. Americans bleed red, white and blue, forever and ever, amen. It’s our birthright. Even without all the time-travel bullshit, no fucking way any of this is even remotely possible. So, is that why humor is sometimes totally absent from a creative work? So it’ll be taken seriously? Let’s add a quick joke here…

Q: Why was the sand wet?

A: Because the sea weed.

^Shazam! Pitch Meeting^

NEWS FLASH!!! Just saw a Tweet from President Trump congratulating Boris Johnson on his being elected PM of Great Britain!!! I guess he won the election.

Wait...was he elected? 

Like, registered voters dropped their ballots in a box, those votes were counted, and he got more votes than the other candidate(s)? You folks over there are a democracy…right? Winner wins, loser loses, everyone is happy with the outcome because win or lose, you got to participate in the process instead of being dictated to by some evil sacks of shit telling you that your opinion doesn’t count?

Man-o-man...democracy sure is great, yeah? 

You have a say, you are totally stoked that you do, and you’re happy for your fellow citizens and respect their rights to be heard too. Life is grand, and you’d never, EVAR, want to subvert your fellow citizens’ rights…right?

^No Mana & i_o – Bad Things (feat. Fay) [Original Mix]^

I wonder if The Founders may have been a little to clever when they framed The US Constitution. Like, I know that they provided for change to happen, but at the same time, they didn’t exactly make it easy. I guess I wonder sometimes if they realize that they were locking many of us in to a system of government that can indeed be exploited quite easily, even tho they specifically designed our system to be difficult to exploit. Maybe that’s the problem? Building an unbreakable something almost guarantees that forces will coalesce to try and break this unbreakable something, if for no other reason than this something is being sold as something unbreakable.

^Billie Eilish – bad guy^

This guy in the vid, below, sure does jump to some sketchy conclusions pretty quickly.

The background music in the whole thing is…obvious.

I mean, if you guys want defenses around your airports, just fucking get them.

Loads of your voters seem to be swinging toward ignoring any democratic processes, so I’m sure you’ll have plenty of support for your actions without requiring something so trivial as drones, to justify these actions of yours.

You want support if you can get it, but you’re gonna do what you want irrespective of support or resistance. That’s your job after all…think for others.

I get it, I really do. You got companies building things, and someone needs to step up and buy it.

Oh…and…lolz…sniping drones? Shooting them down? Fucking rofl. Great idea. I’m sure those unfortunate souls downrange in your line of fire will appreciate you killing them with stray rounds in order to save other more important lives.

(cough...and infrastructure...cough)

Again, you want AA emplacements, just fucking install them.

Just a thought, but, do you think that maybe UAV aircraft/technology might wind up producing an ethics shift that is not being taken into account? I recall that when offensive UAV aircraft first appeared, there were LOADS of ethical questions raised. Did all those questions get answered? Did people get starry-eyed and stop asking ethics questions? Have others been born into this non-questioning world and they have no idea what questions to even ask? Maybe look to the shifts that things rocketry/missiles and the Kamikaze caused. Offensive and defensive lines have blurred, all in the name of…stability?

^Khåen – Daphne^

Think of it like this…when a religion becomes militant and starts arming themselves, are they still considered a religion? More than that, are the people within these groups still considered religious? We seem to be following some patterns that have little if anything to do with the original designs. So why are we still clinging to the original designers and/or their plans? They got to do what they wanted in their own times, so why can’t we do the same here and now? These fuckers are long gone, right? Why do they get to keep telling us what to do? Wait…is this treasonous talk? Discussion of discretionary thinking leads to treason…

^Deadmau5 – Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff (feat. Rob Swire) [Extended Version]^

What are the odds that someone with certain roots, will unknowingly hook up with someone who has similar roots? You as a reader need to keep in mind that I’m coming at this as an American Mutt, and my lineage is fuzzy as fuck. I know people, and I know names, but their origins never really was that big of a deal. OK, well, sometimes their origins was a very big deal in that certain factions of “the family” seemed to have a vested interest in keeping those origins concealed.

Don't ask me why, I have no idea

They kept it hidden from me, still keep it hidden from me, and I’ll likely never know. I only know that I’m not supposed to know. Guess I better get on with living my life, eh? Anyway, was just wondering if I’m supposed to hook up with the people that I hook up with, and how I’m supposed to treat them when and if we do indeed hook up.

HA! Roob just messaged me and said it was really hot there today. I grabbed my phone, checked the weather, and it looks like it is 90°F/32°C there. It’s only 68°/20°C here.

lolz

Granted it’s only 8:33 in the morning here, it’s 14:33 in the afternoon there, but it’s also July 24th. Very unusual for the temperature to ever drop below 70°F/21°C in July. And yes, even at night. It has been VERY cool here the past coupla days. More easterly winds bringing in a lot of moisture over the past two days, and highly unusual weather happening here. Just yesterday I was outside and was thinking that it felt more like early September than it felt like late July. Yeah, I realize that I go on and on about these winds coming in from the East, but I cannot stress how unusual that is here in Northeast Texas. I even saw an aircraft contrail in the sky the other day. Very unusual to see contrails in summer here. Something is definitely going on with the jet stream.

^Deadmau5 – Brazil (2nd Edit) (1080p) || HD^

Watched some vids on this whole Iran business the other day. Wait…lemme start over. The other day, I attempted to watch some vids on this Iran business. As soon as Trump started talking, I had to turn the video off.

“They will pay a price like nobody’s ever paid a price.”

???

What does that even mean? After you go after them, you’re gonna go after all their relatives and friends and neighbors? Go after anyone that looks like them, sounds like them, as well as go after anyone that even reminds you of them? What in the hell kind of nightmare(s) are you committing us Americans to, and what if some of us want no part of it? You gonna come after me too? Call me un-American and accuse me of all kinds of other vile crap just because I don’t support your blather and/or bullshit?

Sounds fair

I think there was something about “Iran’s economy heading for a crash”, but I have no idea what that means either. Maybe someone can bring me up to speed on what I’m supposed to think about it.

^Error in my Head^

I had a ray of sunshine drop into my life yesterday. Instead of some expert someone telling me what “ascension” is, they asked a question…

What in the heck is “ascension” anyway?

Someone apparently trying to see “ascension” through the noob’s eyes, instead of looking at the concept through the master’s eyes. Not saying that I agree with everything in the article, nor that I understand everything in the article seeing as how I, myself, am a noob, and an outsider noob at that. But I’ll not qualify nor comment on the article further, and you can go read it for yourself if you want.

^Sunlounger – Lumumba (Chill Mix)^

So what is it like to not only know things that you have no idea how you know them, but to also experience things in real-time that you also know that you already know them/have already experienced them? I dunno. It’s not a problem that I have. Even if I did have such problems, I wouldn’t tell anyone.

;-P

Seriously…who the fuck am I going to tell, and why in the fuck would I be telling them? The best that I can come up with, is that maybe that and those decisions are discretionary. If my knowing this shit is not a problem for me, why should I talk about it? Out of the goodness of my heart? Yeah right…I have no heart, and even if I did have a heart, there’d be no goodness in it.

^No Mana & i_o – Bad Things (feat. Fay) [Original Mix]^

Speaking of discretion and/or being discretionary, I was reading an old post of mine, and again got thinking about a reader perhaps reading my bullshit, and wondering why I speak/write the way I do. Welp, you’d really have to had walked in my shoes to understand that, but mostly, it revolves around being told what to do. More than that, being told what to believe and/or how to behave. Who I can and cannot commingle with, and the reasons/justifications for these barriers.

These things I’ve been taught/told echo in my head. As such, when I’m writing, I sometimes think about what others have told me, I try and assume that line of thinking for the purposes of discussion, and it just comes out. Sure, I could go a different direction, but wouldn’t that also be because I’m thinking like someone else thinks I should think? ‘Tis quite difficult to speak your own mind, especially when you are trying to be considerate to others, with them showing little to no consideration for you.

EX: I had someone call me stupid the other day.

I admit that I laughed when they did, but it appeared that they were actually quite angry with me/were not laughing themselves. So I got to thinking…wait, what in the hell makes them think they can talk to me like that? Do I have a “kick me” sign on my back or something? I just asked them a question, and the response was rapid and vitriolic. We here in the US know quite well that the Social Security pot is empty, the whole thing is a Ponzi Scheme to begin with, and most of us will never get out what we paid in. A broken promise that continues to perpetuate itself.

Am I misinformed?

US Debt Clock

Those Global Hawk thingies are expensive. There appears to be some disparity in the press as to exactly how much these things cost, but there is little doubt that they are very expensive. What does that have to do with Social Security and/or the level of my intelligence? No idea. I’d be too stupid to know anyway.

^Eagea – Billy Esteban^

So yeah, I speak harshly sometimes, and the fact that I do it tongue-in-cheek, within a certain scope, prolly doesn’t matter to most people. Fair enough.

Adventures in Remote Viewing: Stranger Fins

tenor

*/rolls eyes… I agree, Clicky, the first two seasons of Stranga Fings did concern ‘Free Will’,… /lights up… butt that’s Free Willy…*

Dear Reader, after posting Cade’s latest Missive at the LoL on Friday evening, we settled down, in our respective locations – Southend and Texas – to remote view season 3 of the Netflix hit show ‘Stranger Things’. In terms of remote viewing bingeing, it was…

Epic Man Hat on

 

*/drags… Knot sure Cade liked it as much me, Clicky… /streams smoke… I fuckin’ loved it!*

… I’d already started to wonder how exactly I was going to shamble about it. Fortunately, Red universe Frank gave me the perfect opening on MEROVEE

Merovee Spooky Action At A Distance

… And again when Clicky posted news there that the Big Apol! was experiencing a massive blackout, exactly 42 years to the day after the last ‘Great Blackout’…

Frank and Roob and 42 on Merovee

*/smokes…*

… Strangely enough, season 3 of the series started with a blackout…

‘Winona Ryder plays a chain smoking mother, fighting for her children. She is also, or rather the spelling of her name, is a Mandela Effect.’

*Do ya fink that jigsaw image is kinda Shoe On, Clicky? …/flicks ash…*

‘What JLL says in that talk about ‘bio-tropic clues’ should interest anyone who has spent time here on the good ship Merovee, or paying attention to synchronicity in general…

ST Winona Ryder tangled ball of lights.gif

*Aye, Clicky, deep finking ana luminous ball of entanglement…*

… Of course, given that ‘Eleven’ is a character on ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Day of the Dead’ was the movie playing at the time of the first episode’s opening blackout…

…And that the New York blackout occurred on the 13th July (7), Clicky posted the idea that occurred to me over a morning cup of coffee and a cigarette, way back in 2013…

Clicky on 137 42 and 24

*An’ 24 hours in a day… /deep drag… It’s true, I am pretty much dead until I have a coffee and smoke in the mornings, Clicky…*

… Frank further replied with news of a hovering marvel, seen in Paris on Bastille Day…

Frank Back To The Future Sync

*/plumes smoke…*

… Now, I don’t think Red universe Frank is familiar with ‘Stranger Things’, but the other movie to feature during season 3, was ‘Back To The Future’…

… And then Clicky posted a tweet from ‘Hopper’ from the New York blackout with a definite ‘Go West’ sync to Friday’s LoL Missive From ‘Merica…

*/stubs butt… Oh I see, Clicky! The ‘does ‘opper return?’ cliffhanger to Season 3… Will he?*

*Clever… /nods slowly… Okay, Clicky, go choose a Song…*

…Anyhoo, that’s my ‘Stranger Things’ shambles, Dear Reader. I have another in mind to post, that concerns an extremely spooky short story written by Legs. That’s a treat for later this week, so make sure you come back. But for now… Have a Song… ❤

 

 

Missive From ‘Merica: Bundle!

*/lights up… Let’s keep the top and tail short and sweet, Clicky… /drags… I have a remote viewing date tonight… /plumes smoke…*

Cade and I have been remote viewing the Stranger Things series this week, Dear Reader. I want to finish season 3 before I write anything about it, but rest assured, a shamble is formulating in this noggin of mine…

*Dagnammit, Clicky! I said short and sweet… /flicks ash… Dear Reader ain’t gonna spend ten minutes listening to that. Not when there’s a fantastic missive to devour…*

… Luckily Cade touches on the series in his missive below. So enjoy! ❤

I’d like to tell you a story…

about a man named Jed…

a poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed.

I’d like to tell you that story…

but I’m not going to.

Happy Friday Shit4Brainz
^Skrillex – First Of The Year (Equinox) [Official Music Video]^

Welp, this is one way to get someone to “take you to their leader”…

Intentionally giving lawmakers and weapons designers/manufacturers reason(s) to use those laws and weapons…

great idea!

Thanks for justifying their reason(s) for existing. I’m sure the fines will be a welcome windfall, as the prison time is likely to choke the living shit out of the legal system for centuries to come, and create the need for more and bigger Gitmo and Joe Arpaio types of “correctional facilities”.

But lets think practically

The automobile has made us somewhat stupid as to the logistical nightmare that this A51 invasion would be. Last night I was watching a documentary that was talking about the Second Fitna (Second Islamic Civil War) and they were talking about how long it took for the Umayyad to pull their troops out of Mecca and return to Damascus because the king had died, and someone killed his heir not long after. The documentary I was watching is actually trying to make the argument that “Ancient Mecca” is actually Petra, and not the modern day Mecca…

but that's not really what was on my mind

What was on my mind was how in the hell you pull an army out of an area that you just got to, irrespective of the distance(s) you have to cover. Supposedly, the Umayyad had only gotten to Mecca 40 days before, and now it had to disengage, pull out completely, and does so in about that same amount of time…40 days. Ironically, there’s a more modern logistical nightmare like that if the thought of thousands of people in the desert doesn’t tickle your fancy.

Retreat From Gettysburg

I watched something on that recently too…and…holy shit…what a fucking nightmare. But I know that warfare prolly isn’t your cup of herbal tea, so lets keep it more realerist of all…

Burning Man

I guess they are up to around 70,000 attendees for this thing, it is quite the feat to support that amount of people in the desert for a week, and this ‘Area 51 Get Stun Gunned Fun Run’ is going to host 300,000 people…over 4x more. Even if only half showed up, you’re still talking over 2x Burning Man. So lets think about what is going to get you to Rachel Nevada…assuming you idiots are planning on hitting the base from the North. You are going to drink every gas station dry. ‘Cept for you dolts driving a Smart Car or Prius or a Tesla.

Who...in the FUCK...would take an electric car to the desert?* 

Of course, the government is going to have to respond to your onslaught, so its possible they are going to commandeer or restrict every gas station within 200 miles of the base. You may have enough gas to get in, but you won’t have enough to get out. You’re going to fuck over a lot of the locals in the process, so it is unlikely that visitors of any kind will be welcome in the future.

(pun intended) 

Better bring plenty of tents since accommodations will be few and far between, and bring enough water to drink at least 8 litres per day. I know I’m rambling, and this Facebook thing is stupid, but my mind is awash with how in the hell you’d ever get even 1/10th of that many people remotely close to there. “Strength in numbers” is not always a true statement.

Woodstock

That’s a social bum rush that turned out well. They didn’t think their shit through either.

*I’m not talking about engineers testing electric cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

^Tenacious D – Storm The Gate!^

My suggestion is to show up early, get arrested/detained immediately. At least you’ll have a place to stay, you’ll be out of the heat, food and water will be available, and you’ll have a nice clean place to shit and paper to wipe your ass with until the shitstorm you created, itself, passes. You get you social badge of honor of “being there” to wear around your social media sites, you’re safe and snug thanks to the gubment… and the best part? You still paid for the accommodations via your tax dollars. Its win/win.

Being…there

What are you gonna do with these alien remains? Shove them in your mom’s refrigerator like the idiots did with the Demidog in season 2 of Stranger Things? I bet mom’s fridge is a long ways away, you’re in the middle of the desert, so how long you figure before that fucker thaws out and begins to rot. Or worse, wakes up in a bad mood, tries to eat your brain, discovers you have no brains, gets even more pissed off, calls in the mothership for a rescue, and vanishes from this planet forever.

Seriously, have you given thought to what kind of social damage an alien showing up once, leaving, and never returning would do? You’ve got your proof, but only for you. Everyone who follows is going to think you and everyone around you were morons, hallucinators, uninformed bullshitters, story tellers and/or liars…prolly all on drugs too.

 Sound familiar? 

It should. Just about every culture that came before us can be accused of the same, and the theme is the same all over the world. The Long Gone Gods. Gods and monsters. Mystics and Titans of all kinds. Gone forever. Never to return. Prolly never existed in the first place. Buncha uneducated idiots telling tales after school/making shit up because they weren’t smart like us. They didn’t have…SCIENCE!

Our new god(s)
^Iron Maiden – Flight Of Icarus (Official Video)^

Speaking of flights of fancy, we sure are flying close to the sun/Sol these days. I wonder if that’s a good idea. Not saying we shouldn’t do it, but this new religion of Science requires/demands the unquestioning belief of the followers in much the same way more traditional religions do. But Science still omits a shitload of us, all in favor of the clergy themselves.

Sound familiar? 

It should. But, that’s why I write in the first place. I’m not gonna win any awards or make any cash, but I will hopefully leave something behind for my children. Fill in some gaps, pass along some ways of looking at things that are neither faithful nor rebellious. Hopefully allow them a bit of guidance + the freedom to do what they need to do in their own time(s) and in their own moment(s). I’ve learned that there are times when the best thing to do, is throw the rule book(s) out the window.

Improvise

There are other times when you should follow the rule book(s) step by step, and without fail. You can’t remember everything. That’s why there are rule books and manuals in the first place. Or so an aircraft mechanic told me once.

Makes sense
^Why the Parker Solar Probe is NASA’s most exciting mission | Michelle Thaller^

An interesting vid, but the analogy she gives regarding a camp fire getting hotter the further away you move? That’s…not really accurate. Heat here in our context…rises. Convective activity. Not to mention that during the Tudor period, they found out real quick that it gets a helluva lot hotter above the fire/in the chimney than it does in front of the fire. Not to mention that they found out that the gases themselves and the soot/unburned stuff is pretty goddamn flammable.

Think about it like this…heat, really doesn’t go “up”…it goes out. Actually, it goes up and out at the same time. But if you see a chimney burning from space, the smoke is going to be going out, not up. A “spew” rather than a “rise”. But yeah, it does both at the same time, depending on your orientation/location. So what she is talking about regarding heat traveling laterally…is not…really…accurate.

I would imagine that much of our Sun’s matter/mass at and around the surface actually acts as to keep the temperatures more constant/consistent. Much like room temperature water or molten metal or even salt in a sodium reactor. However, in the case of molten metal or a sodium reactor, everything in the immediate area is gonna be hotter than hell because of the change in the medium for conducting heat.

Wait...did I just state the obvious? 

I guess I’m wondering why science/scientists are wondering why the corona is “hotter than the sun itself”.

^KISS – Hotter Than Hell (Live at Winterland ’75)^

I wonder sometimes if matter/energy can begin moving so fast, that it becomes immeasurably cold. Maybe even that the surrounding environment becomes ridiculously hot. Like say…

lightning

Prolly unrelated, but there’s gotta be something going on that prevents the flow of electrons from becoming constant in certain environments. I know that prolly doesn’t make much sense considering the nature of materials science – I’m actually thinking about static electricity and aircraft more than I am thinking about naturally occurring lightning – but there’s got to be something that sustains cold other than just/only the absence of heat.

Blah
^No_4mat – 1992^

Um…

Q: What do you want from these aliens?

A: ???

Seriously, what can they possibly provide for you? Is that all they can do? Provide things…for you? This seems more like government angst than it seems like some natural interest/curiosity, but that’s prolly because I’m still steaming over season 1 of Stranger Things. Yeah, I watched it last weekend, have written a bit about it, but you’ve basically got different groups of assholes fighting over…

Eleven

Doesn’t matter whether it’s that pack of creepy assholes in their government hideout, or that creepy pack of nerds playing Dungeons and Dragons in their basement…they’re basically the same people at different times. The kids start talking about Eleven as if she’s a weapon…a tool for them to use. Before long, everyone is doing the same shit. She’s something to be feared, and everyone wants to get their claws in her for various reasons. So again, I gotta ask…

Q: What do you want from these aliens?

A: ???

You want disclosure? You want proof? Or is access what you are really wanting? Can’t say I blame you really. There’s plenty of places that I’d like to visit and poke around. My itinerary and reasons for visiting these places might differ slightly from yours. Some might be similar tho.

^Trentemøller: Moan^

Most people don’t give a fuck about the water itself, they want control of the tap. Others want to control the pipelines.

Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Was watching a doc yesterday on Antarctica, and the mission itself was more of a fisheries expedition than it was a research mission. Not to mention that the musical score, the editing and the narration made the whole thing seem like a commercial. But it seems to me that “business” is only willing to fund science if there is a return. And business is going to have to be in cahoots with government in order to finance the mission in the first place, so yeah…

a triad between science, business and government

That said, if you want control of the infrastructure that provides information, build your own. Hell, I thought that was the purpose of Social Media in the first place…give you a voice. So…what have you done with it, this voice you now have. Have you been honest? Have you been forthcoming? Do you actually tell the truth, or do you simply espouse to the fact that you are telling the truth, and you are you spewing whatever will get you the most votes on election day? Wait…what’s that? You never thought of likes and shares and followers as being the same as votes?

Weird 

I’d imagine a smart fucker like you woulda been all over that.

^Alice^

Oh, and here’s that documentary on the Antarctica exploitation, if you wanna watch it. The documentary was posted on YT on July 9 of 2019, but the documentary itself is a National Geographic documentary from 2008 called Expedition Antarctica.

Expedition Antarctica

So yeah, an 11 year old documentary repackaged as something new in the now. If you’re wanting to be timely, current, and on the cutting edge of discovery, this show may not be for you.

^The Secrets of Antarctica | Full Documentary | TRACKS^

Would be nice to find a copy of that Paul Watson movie/doc At the Edge of the World. I bet Roob would enjoy that. Yeah, Watson is accused of being a bit sketchy, but EVERYTHING is sketchy, so not sure what the problem is with sketchy things. In fact, if it wasn’t for sketchy shit, the Internet prolly woulda died long ago. TV too. And radio. And film. And photography. And print. Hell, is media the only thing keeping us alive? Well, maybe that and oral tradition.

The Aroostook Triangle

That appeared on my radar yesterday, and I’ve been contemplating to concepts of gossip and rumor a lot lately. Hell, most of this post is about rumor and gossip, it’s just that a lot of it gets packaged as some kind of official and/or authentic something that is reliable because of a mark or seal or something. Which, did you know that Twitter has “authenticated” accounts?

About verified accounts

Excuse me…”verified”, not authenticated. So yeah, the tap itself has a placard saying that everything is A-OK. That’s no guarantee as to what is in the pipeline tho, nor its source(s). Most information is aggregate anyway. Not clean and pure like single-malt Scotch whiskey.

😉

^CHVRCHES – Lies^

I guess that “single-malt” refers to batches of a particular production run that have not been mixed with leftovers from previous runs? I have no idea, and pretty sure I’ve never drunk a single-malt Scotch. Too fucking expensive. I ain’t spending $150 on a bottle of Scotch. I can buy several fifths of Dewar’s for that, or maybe a keg of beer. Not that I have a place to keep a keg nor a means of keeping it cold. Maybe someday I can afford both a kegerator and a bottle of single-malt.

^Fever Ray ‘When I Grow Up’^

Anyway…it’s 10:24 on Friday morning, been at this for a while, my butt is frozen to the side of the bed from sitting here writing all that bullshit above, and I guess I better get prepared to watch the rest of season 3 of Stranger Things. I don’t like much of anything of what I’ve seen thusfar. A bunch of angsty yelling and everyone trying to tell everyone else what to do/not do. The Snow Ball was kinda funny. I couldn’t decide if it was more Napoleon Dynamite or Fish Under The Sea Dance. Or Carrie. Or Footloose. It did have a Napoleon Dynamite song in it, but maybe the Snow Ball was actually not trying to be any of those previously mentioned things. I mean, it’s a dance and school dances, unlike alien landings or paranormal shitstorms, are quite a common occurrence here in the US of A.

Are school dances portrayed onscreen taboo unless approved by the Bomont, Utah Community Standards and Morality Council?* Or is this where union groups and guilds come into play. I had no idea that the entertainment industry was so inundated with guilds and unions, but it is.

*this is a nod to the movie Footloose (fyi)
^Joke Theft and Cryptomnesia^

You want to know things. Me too. I guess the question is…

Q: How do you want to know it?

A: ?? ¿

You can kill two birds with one stone that way. “They” are gonna be equally interested in how you know what you know, as well as what you know. And knowing is half the battle. No wait, surprise is half the battle. Anyway, yeah, both halves of the battle are important, and how you know what you know is equally as important as what you know. Some considerations to sequencing might not go amiss either. Chronological, topical, contextual, alphabetical…things like that.

Reference

Some reference points get a little…loopy. Especially when someone is pulling your fingernails out with a pair of pliers. You’ve only got so many fingernails, and getting them yanked out makes concentration a bit difficult.

^Deadmau5 – Sometimes Things Get, Whatever || HD^

I do wonder what you think you’re gonna find on the other side of that fence other than miles of desert, a shitload of snakes and scorpions, dehydration, sunburn, some giant runways, secret aircraft programs, a shitload of toxic waste(s), and a bunch of gung-ho types with automatic weapons who are more than willing to deal you out some government issued bullet wounds. Even if you find what you are looking for, then what? Haven’t you seen Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade?

Sup douchebag. Or, douchebags…if there are more than one of you. Doing OK today? Wanna travel a potentially dark path? Me either too neither also.

Q: Why do Christians hate Satanists?

A: ? ? ?

The concept of Satan and/or Satanism springs from your own mythos, right? So I really don’t see what you get in such a twist over every time that/those particular part(s) of your own bullshit is mentioned. Seems like all you need to do in order to defeat Satan or Lucifer or the Devil or whoever, is edit them out. Redact their evil ass(es) from The Bible.

 Problem solved

But wait, you can’t do that can you? Not only does God say not to change one word, but you can’t remove the opposition. The opposite is what allows the entirety of the structure(s) to stand in the first place. Man, you guys are staring down the barrel of Gnosticism aren’t you. I mean, you’re gonna have to face the fact that you’re eventually gonna have to blame God for everything at some point, and I get the feeling that this is almost the entirety of what makes up the basis for Gnosticism…

blame God

Or if you want to avoid those pesky Gnostic conundrums, you can just keep Big Red in The Bible, God is off the hook, problem solved? Is that how this works? I’m asking because I don’t know.

^Iron Maiden- The Prisoner^

You really don’t think I think you’re a douchebag, do you?

You aren't, right? 

I wouldn’t sweat being called names…

X: Can I add something here?

Cade: Oh, hello. I’m sure you can add something with a modicum of effort.

X: How do you figure that you completely forgot that your favorite Iron Maiden song even existed?

Cade: Woah. I woulda expected a question like that to come from 0: or T:.

X: Anyone but me?

Cade: Pretty much, yeah.

0: Do you have an answer?

Cade: Welp, you’ve kinda muddied the waters as to what question needs to be answered.

B: No…you did that.

Cade: Muddied the waters?

B: Yes.

Cade: I realize that. But X: typically doesn’t start conversations via a rather detailed question.

Z: Are they typically more of an “observational” type of instigator?

Cade: Yeah. Fuzzy, but knowing.

F: What in the hell does that mean?

Cade: Welp, can I answer the original question first?

T: Will that give you time to think about how to respond?

Cade: Yes. And in answer to how I could possibly forget that my favorite Iron Maiden song even existed? Time.

X: Time, and…???

Cade: Time and rejection.

X: Rejection?

Cade: Yes. I started to “reject” heavy metal music when it started to get kinda…

Z: Foofoo?

Cade: Yes. Foofoo, or fufu or whatever. Frilly. Sparkly. Glam.

Z: You wanted to stay in the dark.

Cade: Yeah, something like that. I was just beginning to understand the dark, become comfortable with the dark.

X: And then?

Cade: Light.

0: Too much focus on the dark creates a glare.

Cade: Now that you put it like that, yeah. Like flicking on a light just as your eyes have adjusted to the dark.

Z: Or coming indoors on a bright and sunny day?

Cade: Yeah that too. Not grey as much as a weird mish-mashy rainbow of colors trying to find where they go/where they need to be.

X: That’s quite the description. Ever thought of it like that before?

Cade: Not really. But now that I think about it, it’s almost like shoving a rainbow flavored sno-cone into your eye.

T: How many time do you think you’ve heard that song The Prisoner?

Cade: A bunch. I used to listen to it over and over.

T: The song has a lot of colors.

Cade: Indeed it does. Up-tempo with a down-tempo intro, clarity, confusion, decision, anger, hope…

X: …and rejection.

Cade: Yes! That song does have some “rejection” overtones in it doesn’t it?

X: I hadn’t noticed.

Cade: lolz

X: 😉

F: Ahem.

Cade: I gotta scroll up, because I forgot what you asked.

F: Don’t bother.

Cade: K.

X: He’s gonna “bother” you know.

F: Why would he, when I specifically requested that he not?

0: Because he wants to know.

T: He thinks he does.

B: In the event the question is raised again.

Cade: Do I need to be here for this conversation?

F: Don’t do what I asked you not to do, and the problem is solved.

Cade: Not from my vantage point.

F: You scrolled.

Cade: Indeed I did, and in answer your original question, “knowing an answer” does not necessarily mean that you know how to provide that answer to a particular individual?

F: You were thinking of anecdotal evidence as you typed that.

Cade: Of course I was.

F: To relate the answer?

Cade: I would say, “to better relate the answer”, but that’s just me.

F: And why is that?

Cade: Because I can have the answer to a question…

T: But that doesn’t mean that you understand it.

Cade: Correct. Even less so with respect to answering an individual.

F: You know a lot of things you don’t understand?

Cade: Um, I think I need to be careful in answering that.

X: Booya.

Cade: Booya indeed.

F: What does that mean? “In your face F:?”

Cade: No. It is a correctness in the moment which buys more time for contemplation on if and how to answer your question.

F: Wait, you are saying you have answers to questions, and you don’t understand these answers, therefore you are hesitant to share these answers you have, simply because you yourself do not understand them?

Cade: Yes. Not always mind you.

F: What the hell does that mean?

Cade: Wow, my head is suddenly a train wreck.

Z: If only you were able to find a relatable anecdote, you wouldn’t be in this mess.

Cade: Tru dat.

F: You probably just have an inner desire to talk. Therefore your first instinct is block direct answers so as to inspire conversation.

Cade: Welp, that’s complete bullshit. I’m typically told that I have the finesse and delicacy of an asteroid slamming into the Yucatan Penninsula.

0: He ain’t lying.

F: How so?

A: Usually, he gives very direct answers in order to avoid conversation.

Z: Dry as the desert.

X: Heartless as stone.

T: All to avoid confusion.

Cade: Oy vey.

0: Oy vey indeed.

Cade: Avoid any perception of being deceitful.

X: Take the beating.

Cade: Forever and always, take the beating.

X: Booya.

F: Take the beating?

Cade: Get it over with. The beating is going to come irrespective of how the information is provided.

F: No justification? No rationalization?

Cade: Wait a moment here, anyone reading that might become confused as to who is rationalizing what.

Z: And why.

Cade: And why.

F: I’m confused.

Cade: Yes, I have many answers. Yes, I have many answers that I personally do not understand. Yes, I have grown hesitant in providing said information when asked for it.

F: Perhaps you are trying to avoid these beatings afterall?

Cade: Do you know what comes after?

F: Can you explain that? I don’t understand.

Cade: After someone asks me “do you know…”, and I answer directly and succinctly, do you know what comes after?

F: Another question?

Cade: Exactly. What I know, then after I tell what I know comes the question of how I know it.

F: And then?

Cade: Its a mess.

F: So, you know a bunch of stuff, but don’t know how you know it.

Cade: There are libraries you know.

F: Meaning…what?

Cade: We encountered eachother. It’s highly unlikely that I know something that others don’t know. So if you want a different source, there are plenty available.

F: Wait, is this about synchronicity?

Cade: Somewhat. Time. You want something in a timely manner, I give it to you, perhaps that saves you some time from having to go somewhere else to get it.

F: And if you don’t answer my question?

Cade: Then perhaps I was not the one that was supposed to give you the information you needed. I’m not a fucking ATM machine.

F: And what is that supposed to mean?

Cade: Go ask an ATM machine for a bottle of Dr. Pepper a bag of Cheetos and find out what I mean. Might ask the ATM machine what it thinks of the new Avengers movie whilst you are at it. Chat about the weather. Perhaps ask for investing advice or get them to comment on your wardrobe choices.

F: I would not do such a thing.

Cade: I don’t care if you would or wouldn’t.

F: Why don’t you care?

Cade: Because I don’t. “Fuzzy knowing”, I would think anyway, is not as much about whether or not to provide information requested, but how to provide the information. A “rock” is not just and only “a rock”.

F: It is if it’s a six mile wide asteroid slamming into the Yucatan Peninsula.

Cade: That isn’t a rock at all…it’s a missile.

0: If I may be so bold as to interject, this is getting a bit long, don’t you think?

Cade: It is indeed.

F: …

If you want answers, I got em’. Step right up and get your answers.

Ya know, I gotta admit…

…I didn’t have the slightest desire to drop anything upon reading the text of that tweet. In fact, the only thing that I had a sudden desire to do, was that I seemed to have a sudden desire to NOT go read your full-length six-section ebook with its searingly urgent and imminent message. And what’s with the Pepe The Frog MOAB? Didn’t Alex Jones get sued for using shit like that?

Hey you! Yeah, you…the one who is reading this right now. Do you even know what a MOAB is?

Moab

Moab, Utah

Moab (Disambiguation)

GBU-43/B MOAB

THERE we go! That last one is what we are looking for. It’s not a daisy-cutter. What’s that? You dunno what a daisy-cutter is? Welp, you can go look it up your own damn self if you wanna. Anyway, I get the feeling that whatever this searingly urgent message is, is prolly more along the lines of investment advice and/or some kind of corporate signaling. That’s just me being conspiratorial tho.

Movies are supposed to be entertaining. Movies are supposed to be titular. Exciting. Interesting.

Entertainment. Movies are something you are supposed to want more and more of. With respect to those concepts…

Q: Does the blending of “the hideous” within a wrapper of “entertainment” muddy meaning(s)?

A: ???

More than that, would you know if movies had switched in their usage/utilization between a medium of entertainment, and one of entrainment? Not indoctrination, as much as entrainment. An intentional mixing/blending of concepts in order to manifest certain emotions that typically operate on different frequencies and/or carry different resonances?

Lemme give an example. Recently, the “antihero” archetype has become quite prevalent in movies, and especially superhero flicks. There’s nothing new about the antihero, but the depictions of them in movies is quite new. Ace Ventura is an antihero. The Man With No Name is an antihero. Frankenstein’s Monster is an antihero. Charles Kane is an antihero. The Shadow is an antihero.

Wait a minute here…there’s nothing new about antiheroes, except in superhero movies. Depictions of superheroes with flaws…maybe that’s what is new here. But that can’t be, because all superheroes have weaknesses. So why is it, that I would get the idea that someone is trying to use subtleties in the medium of movies to influence my outlook on certain things? Oh, that’s right, it’s because there are fucktons of people out there who are battling over the hearts and minds of the masses.

Maybe that's why I'm confused
^Sorten Muld – Bonden og Elverpigen (lyrics)^

What do you get, when you try and unconfuse someone who is not confused? Like say, I am a someone who already has the same ideas about perfection as you. If you think that I am someone who does not share your views on perfection, and you start hitting me with concepts specifically designed for those with opposing views, how would I react to those concepts? Nodding agreement? Or is confusion the more likely outcome. After all, wouldn’t you be preaching to the converted? That leaves me with no other conclusion than to wonder why in the fuck you are talking to me at all. Recruitment? Initiation?

 Some kind of security check?
^Renegade Soundwave – Cocaine Sex (LP original)^

Here’s the dealio, I started writing this whatever yesterday morning, and yesterday afternoon, I watched a coupla movies that confused the living shit out of me. Quite sure they confused me because I didn’t understand the characters and their motivations. But the movies were Split and Glass.

Split (2016 American Film)

Glass (2019 Film)

What in the fuck is a stealth sequel? 

The Wiki page for Split says that Split is “Hollywood’s first stealth sequel”. Anyway, I was kinda confused by the motivations of the character in Split. But then again, I had a tough time trying to decide if Split was a metaphor for government(s), more than it was a story about some nutcase living in a bomb shelter/prepper bunker.

The reason I thought the movie might be metaphorical, is because killing is the only answer. And not just and only killing, but theft, thievery and overbearing/obtrusive enslavement. Murder is also theft, slavery is supposedly illegal as is involuntary servitude. I’m kinda avoiding the topic of kidnapping because I’m trying to understand any points that Shyamalan might be trying to make in the subtext. Kinda sad really, because I sometimes feel that I can’t watch and enjoy a movie without nitpicking the fuck out of the story for “hidden meanings”.

Le sigh

It gets worse tho, because I then watched Glass. Oy vey, it only got muddier from there.

^public enemy – lost at birth – Apocalypse 91…The Enemy Str^

Glass seems to focus on the concept of ‘Due Process’.

Due Process

‘Due Process’ is top down. That means in order for the concept to be valid, it must be respected and honored from top to bottom, at all times.

This is the Achilles’ heel of every superhero, and the eventual destruction of every supervillan…when and if to respect someone else’s rights. I guess this is why the concept is ever-present in comic books. You’ve got people who are sick and tired of waiting for the slow wheels of justice to turn, and they take matters into their own hands. We’re talking about folks here who likely trust these systems of government implicitly, and when these governments and their systems don’t deliver? Anger and rage are swift amongst the converted.

These governments get their due and proper from us after all, on time and without fail, otherwise these governments and their arms of retribution are swift and firm with us. It’s almost as if these government are indifferent to our taxpayer-on-taxpayer crimes. Wait, I meant to say citizen-on-citizen crime(s). But yeah, this third party is indifferent as to what has transpired, and even if anything has transpired. After all, they are late to the party. But at the start of the movie Glass, the “heroes” are being accused of denying criminals their right to ‘Due Process’. In other words, the government wants their piece of the action. Ironic that this character who accuses the heroes of denying rights to ‘Due Process’, themselves denied the heroes their rights to ‘Due Process’.

I’m not going to spoil the movie further, but I’ll just say that both movies are some really great stories with fucktons of flaws. I almost get the feeling that these flaws are intentional, only because I know that Shyamalan is a clever motherfucker and a great storyteller. But let me add one last thing here real quick…

Good Samaritan Law

Yes, whether you know it or not, there are indeed laws that dictate behavior. Laws that eradicate choice completely, and lead to a ridiculously twisted web of “what I would have done in that situation” types of debates.

/me rolls eyes
^Madeleine Peyroux – J’ai Deux Amours^

So…there is a law…it states that you must stop and render aid if you see a car crash.

So…there is a law…it states that you cannot carry a pocket knife on your person.

So…there is a car crash in front of you. You stop because you are legally obligated to do so.

So…a person in one of the cars is trapped because the seat belt is jammed from the impact.

So…the car is on fire.

So…you have no way to cut this seatbelt because knives are illegal to carry.

So…you are required to be a superhero, but your hands are tied.

So…this law required you to stop and watch/witness this person burn to death as you stand helpless.

Yep, it’s a mess.

Good luck!

^Renegade Soundwave – Thunder^

Don’t ask me how in the fuck this started off with contemplating the concept of defects in your own religion’s mythos, and wound up contemplating comic books and movies. Just kinda…happened that way.

^Los Twangers – Vista Cruiser 69^

Is it possible to plan chaos? I bet a healthy dose of order would help.

Sorry, just really lost in this concept of onscreen retribution and/or vengeance. But then again, I guess onscreen forgiveness would be boring as fuck. A superhero wandering around absolving criminals of their crimes? What a snoozefest. The hero could just as well stay home, kick their feet up, have a beer, eat some Doritos and watch television. That would be a good show model for product placement tho.
