Welcome to another installment of my “secret” blog posts from last year. This time we’re gonna take a look at such diverse and stimulating topics as The Shadow Asshole, the “New Civil War,” Homicidal Maniac Stan Laurel, the secret relationship between classic movie actors Anthony Perkins and Tab Hunter (and how Perkins “solved” this situation), cranky Spider-Man creator/Ayn Rand-loving artist Steve Ditko, know-it-all New God/angel Metron/Metatron, and the head of Horus!

Right. Let’s get to it!

Instant Replay Part 1: June Moon

Note: In June of 2018, I temporarily ceased blogging on Butterfly Language and continued on a separate site, Instant Replay. In deference to my completist nature, here are those posts. There might be some content that I later “remixed” elsewhere on this blog, but I kind of like the “narrative” the posts as a whole tell about that little slice of my life.

–Saul Cartwright, “Batman” #222

We’re going to discuss now one of the key pop-culture conspiracy theories of the 20th Century…the supposed death and replacement of Beatle Paul McCartney. It is the Rosetta Stone for so many other celebrity doppelgänger folktales (up to “Dave Chappelle’s Clone” in the present day).

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.
