Lorde, Donald Trump, Marijuana, and Gnostic Living.

Lorde divided

The 2nd coming of Christ is partially Lorde the singer. She’s one of the many that are part of this epochs second coming transmission. In the most literal way she’s preaching against royalty, the striving to be among the elite/wealthy, and I think that’s why her message is resonating. The other side of the coin is Donald Trump and in a dualistic reality, many trumps will always be parading around. But that’s ok. Because maybe sooner or the kids of other trumps will turn away from such a shallow reality.

I believe Jesus divided his energies among thousands of GenXers and Millenials. The opposite of a destructive virus. He figured this would be the most efficient method in evolving the planet. Rather than putting all of the worlds wisdom, grace, and beauty into one man or woman, why not spread this form of wisdom into many. Why create one figurehead for the establishment to snuff out? (Lennon, Kennedy, Marley, Gandhi, etc etc etc) And it’s working! His message is coming across, but not in a holier than thou way. You could even say Pope Francis has some of this Jesus Juju inside of him and it’s allowing him to radically transform the catholic church.

In my opinion, marijuana is quickly overtaking the deadly clutch that alcohol has had on the planet for many thousands of years. You can imagine a day when people will be able to see their bodies and lives in a virtual reality setting – 10, 20, 30 years down the road after having drank steadily every day of their life. “So this is what will happen to my skin, memory, outlook on life…if I drink in this way.” A kind of a projection center where users type in the drug, stimulant, etc. they want to see interacting with their own DNA structure over many years. This kind of visualization could turn a full generation off of alcohol and pills. Greater technology in this way could allow us to make more informed choices with how we choose to live.

God is and always has been a chameleon. Religions attempt to profit off of an individual’s “felt experience” and its childish use of metaphors to explain the unexplainable, has left quite a stale taste in humanity’s mouth in general. Having any kind of genuine felt experience and then relating to others experiences, that’s gnosis to me. Meeting someone halfway on almost anything is a spiritual act. Connecting with another human being is really the only church you should strive to be inside of. It’s not a brick and mortar church and there’s no real prophet to be made.

More on all of this at some later date.

Goodnight

“The Celebrity Apprentice” is lite psychological fun

Bored at work so I decided to check in on the new “Celebrity Apprentice”. Let’s just say that Sinbad does not age. Must have a few cases of orange hair dye if anything. Sharon Osbourne doesn’t come off sounding as racy or sassy with the presence of Cyndi Lauper.

Lauper fills the role that Joan Rivers did in the previous season. No filter before speaking, or just what the Donald would want after the final edit. The spontaneous artist having to conform in a business type setting; it’s actually kind of fascinating TV.

Then onto BLAGO. This guy is a comic book character right out of MAD magazine, or at least the grownup version of Alfred E. Neuman, the MAD figure that always donned the cover. It’s like he’s so caught up in himself and the fact that he was once governor, you cannot sense anything more than an empty suit just spouting political rhetoric whenever the Donald turns to him for his opinion. Like there’s a lever behind his neck that rapidly switches from “phony” to “ultra phony”.

There’s one scene where BLAGO is out on the streets of New York and the subtitles read, “You’re a disgrace.” as some 9-5 New Yorker gets his air time off camera. Rod is just relentless in trying to find love from anyone, shamelessly shaking hands and shining that goofy grin everywhere. A group of girls even mistaken him for Donny Osmond. It’s just trainwreck TV. Like Trump paid Rod a decent sum to appear on the show, just as long as he played up the beaten down politician that has to live like everyone else. “Rod here’s how it’s gonna go down. (three pickles in my mouth squint, squint.) The Tea party movement is big, and a big part of our projected Demo. I’ll allude to you as governor, but our camera guys already know where they want to shoot, to get you in some compromising positions..This sound good Rod?” – “Yea sounds great Donald, I’m just so happy to be on your show and finally clear my name…”

Sinbad got shit canned because he could never articulate himself as a leader. I think it’s just reflective with how comedians are much better at being reactive than proactive.

 Do you even remember the last Sinbad CD or HBO special? Sinbad is like Whoopi Goldberg, really not funny in any way, but recognizable. An American Symbol the people UNDERSTAND. I suppose most TV is built around a recognizibility factor that is important for a sense of nostalgia? Content takes the backseat to the overall “feel” of what’s being taped, especially with network TV. Although Sinbad does seem like one of the nicest guys in Showbiz and just comes across as extremely genuine.

Brett Michaels is one of the few “rock stars” that has really used the TV medium to his advantage. And it’s funny when you can pout your way through an episode, crying to the group leader that you have nothing to do. He’s a great actor though, I’d even see him in a “Wrestler” type movie, just not as serious. I’m almost looking forward to the next episode tomorrow night.

I’ve got to say, The Donald has his hooks in me. Boy can he sell, sell, sell. Although that smug squint he’s so famous for is getting tighter and tighter. Is that just what compounded bullshit and ego looks like after years of wheelin and dealin?
