EXQUISITE EQUINOX!

tumblr_on48thCRx01qj0uf2o1_500.png

The seasonal pivot point occurs today and many Satanists mark that change as we feel at one with the Earth and its continuing cycles. In the Northern Hemisphere Spring arrives, replacing the Winter’s desolation with renewed life surging in triumphant burgeoning. In the Southern Hemisphere, the glory of Autumn shall soon cast its soothing spell after the fiery blasts of Summer, presaging the coming harvest with all of its fertile abundance.

Here in the haunted Hudson Valley, we recently experienced Winter’s dramatic last hurrah with about two feet of snow falling in a day. We shall thus be listening to Stravinsky’s masterpiece The Right of Spring as it conjures the shattering of the frigid season’s strictures via the violent renewal of growth.

It is a glorious day to celebrate the wonders of Nature as we are part of its boundless mysteries.

Hail Satan!

The amazing animated video to The Jezabels’ “Come Alive”

This is truly fucking amazing.

Via BoingBoing:

The amazing animated video to The Jezabels’ “Come Alive” features a swirly, timeless impasto style. All smoke and fire and light, every frame’s literally a stark, beautiful painting.

It was directed by Darcy Prendergast & Xin Li from Oh Yeah Wow, using oil paint on glass. It might seem grim for a monday morning, but stick with it! The Jezebels are on tour in early 2016 and their second album, The Brink, is out now.

A Goofy MOON Doc That Did It For Me

The Impact Theory is dead? That’s news to me…

All right. A few things.

Despite the absolutely garish “cover design,” see above, and its hideous title, Aliens and Astronauts: UFO’s On the Moon (2014) is a loving documentary regarding the many mysteries of our beloved Luna. And when I say “loving,” I mean it; there is so much Moon porn in this flick, culled from NASA and photographers around the world—frankly, I was fucking beating it…

There are fundamental elements about The Moon that our best scientists simply do not understand. It’s true! The Moon’s size, its orbit, its geological composition—a lot of this shit simply “makes no sense.” Of all the celestial objects and phenomena we’ve studied, whether it be “photographing” Dark Matter and Black Holes, or aiming a puny rocket that actually hit Pluto nearly two decades later, we still don’t understand The Moon. Our closest neighbor. A place we’ve actually visited. She remains a mystery.

That’s why I love Her.

I believe in science, I really do. I want to know how The Moon is in such a perfect orbit, how She perfectly eclipses The Sun. And more. Just because we don’t initially understand shit is not a reason to claim, “Well, it must be God! Or aliens! MAYBE IT’S SPOCK!”

And this film is assiduous in quoting many many many scientists and writers who can only scratch their heads and breathe, “The Moon is fucked up, man.”

Yes She is. Like I said, that’s why I love Her.

So! The documentary goes completely fucking nuts at the end! After making a sustained argument that The Moon is actually an artificial construct parked in orbit around Earth by aliens, we are given this graphic:

YES! YES! YES! DUMMKOPF PUBLISHER McGRAW-HILL REVEALED AND SHAMED AS PACK OF UTTER IDIOTS!

Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 5.59.02 AM copy

From The Huffington Post:

Black lives matter in textbooks, too.

Fifteen-year-old Coby Burren underscored this point when he sent his mom, Roni Dean-Burren, a photo of a page from his ninth grade World Geography textbook which wrongly described African slaves as “workers.”

Dean-Burren posted her son’s text message to her Instagram page.

“The Atlantic slave trade brought millions of workers… notice the nuanced language there,”  her caption read. “Workers implies wages… yes?” 

The Texas mom also posted a Facebook video where she showed that the inaccurate description was in the textbook’s “Patterns of Immigration” section. 

“Immigrants, yeah, that word matters,” the mother says in the video. “‘The Atlantic slave trade between the 1500s and the 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the Southern United States to work on agricultural plantations. So it is now considered immigration.”

In the video, she also notes that the textbook said some Europeans worked as indentured servants for little to no pay but doesn’t mention anything about the forced labor African slaves endured.

“This is erasure,” Dean-Burren told The Washington Post. “This is revisionist history — retelling the story however the winners would like it told.” 

Dean-Burren’s video went viral, receiving more than a million views since it was posted on Thursday. It even caught the attention of McGraw-Hill, the textbook’s publisher.

“[W]e conducted a close review of the content and agree that our language in that caption did not adequately convey that Africans were both forced into migration and to labor against their will as slaves,” McGraw-Hill posted on their Facebook page on Friday.

“We believe we can do better,” McGraw-Hill wrote. “To communicate these facts more clearly, we will update this caption to describe the arrival of African slaves in the U.S. as a forced migration and emphasize that their work was done as slave labor.”

The company stated that the changes will be reflected in the digital version immediately and in the next version of the printed textbook. However, The Washington Post notes that the next hardcopy version may not be printed for a while as the current edition of the book is brand new. Dean-Burden said she was excited the publisher took note, but felt it wasn’t enough.

“I know they can do better. They can send out a supplement. They can recall those books. Regardless of whether you’re left-leaning or right-leaning, you know that’s not really the story of slavery,” she told The Washington Post. “Minimizing slavery in any way is a way of saying those black lives, those black bodies, that black pain didn’t matter enough to give it a full description.”

We asked our resident McGraw-Hill expert The Creep in the Art Department to weigh in on this clusterfuck, but he was too busy doing backwards cartwheels naked up and down Sixth Avenue in midtown Manhattan.
