April Fool’s Day, Fake News, And The Reality Wars

ap1.jpg

April Fool’s Day…now THERE’S a subject. Especially in our current age.

One possible origin of April Fool’s Day, according to Snopes (and we’ll be circling back ’round to this site in a bit), involves the switching from the Julian to Gregorian calendars in 1582.

In the western world under the old system, New Year’s was technically on March 25—but, because of the Holy Week, celebrated on April 1. The story went that those who forgot about the switchover to the Gregorian calendar—which firmly established January 1 as the beginning of the year—and said “Happy New Year!” on April 1 were “fools.”

Is The “Devil Horns” Hand Gesture Evil?

Some conspiracy theorists insist that the so-called “devil horns” hand gesture, which has been seen used by scores of celebrities, politicians, and other public figures, is supposed to represent allegiance to Satan. Does this hand-sign have some sort of occult meaning, or is it just a playful affectation that looks good in a photograph? The answer is…both yes and no.

Talking Back To The “Alien”

I recently watched a video from a mystic-type person I follow on YouTube. She started doing this channeling thing and I think I kind of momentarily crapped my pants. It was so sudden; just cutting the woman off in mid-sentence and “bubbling” out from her. But the advice she (or it…or they???) gave was so on-point—it felt almost as if this type of entity was SPEAKING RIGHT TO ME, sort of reading my mind and addressing my issues.

Then a little bit later on I watched some other videos from the series and I suddenly had a bad, dark, terrible feeling.

Spring Break In The Dead Zone: My Experiences Being A Creepy Psychic Woman

“A procession of the damned.
By the damned, I mean the excluded.
We shall have a procession of data that Science has excluded.”
–Charles Fort, “The Book Of The Damned”

This is a story about two dreams I had that seemingly came true to a very specific degree.

I am not saying they were precognitive dreams. We can simply call them “coincidences.” We can call them whatever we’d like. It’s just a matter of semantics, really.

Thoughts On The “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” Trailer

And so the trailer for the long-awaited 9th film by Quentin Tarantino (I go into the significance of the Number Nine as it relates to the subject matter in my post “The Manson Frequency”) has dropped on the Day of the Goddess Eostre, Ostara, the Vernal Equinox.

So it is no surprise that one of the first images we see is that of Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, in front of a goddess-like image.

The Age Of The Revelatory Matrix

The problem is that we (most of us, run-of-the-mill humans) have already opened our lives up to the vast digital matrix that is Facebook/Google/Amazon/Apple. We are already “in the system.” We have signed off on perfectly legal “backdoors” to our own histories, our digital “footprint.”

We did this a long time ago—not just with these gigantic corporations, but with every online tom, dick, and harry who came along. We willingly ensconced ourself into that vast matrix.

The Curse of Atuk: Did This Movie Kill 4 Of Hollywood’s Funniest Actors?

Look, if it’s in any way even remotely possible that a movie cursed with some indefinable yet quantitatively proven fatal quality took out four (if not more) of Hollywood’s greatest funny men…then it is my honor-bound duty to get to the bottom of it.

So without further delay, here’s a look at one of the most persistent contemporary Hollywood urban legends…“The Curse Of Atuk.”
