Just Draw Whatever Comes to Mind

October 20, 2011

Automatic Drawing is the practice of letting your mind float free, while you let your hands draw whatever they will, believing that the resulting image will be the result of contact with the spirit world. Not sure what Sigmund Freud will think about this image.

Movie Review: We Are Wizards

January 7, 2011

I highly recommend that any and all nerds out there check out the documentary We Are Wizards. It is hilarious. The film follows fans of the Harry Potter series, including several Harry Potter themed rock bands and the operator of a fan page that was sued into oblivion by Warner Brothers.

Brad Neely of “The Professor Brothers” recorded an incredibly funny commentary for the first Harry Potter film called Wizard People, Dear Reader, (download here) and he too, got some interesting letters from the Warner Brothers legal department. He escaped unscathed, though, with a lot of great stories at Warner’s expense.

By far, the strangest person in the movie is this bat shit crazy Christian lady named Caryl Matrisciana that does believe that wizards and black magic are, in fact, real; that it penetrates children’s minds and, I dunno, makes them cut themselves or something. (BTW, nobody else in the movie thinks magic is real). Apparently, she is worthy of inclusion because made a movie intended to scare people away from all things Potter, called Harry Potter: Witchcraft Repackaged. Well, I actually just saw my first Harry Potter film a couple of weeks ago, and it was nowhere near as scary as she was.

Yeah, it’s from the Onion. But, as I always say, ‘It’s funny cause it’s true!’

I mean, it must be a message from some all knowing entity, right?

Christine O’Donnell and the Witchcraft Claim

September 20, 2010
This clip from a 1999 episode of  Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect has made the rounds pretty successfully in the last few days. In it, Christine O’Donnell claims that she “dabbled” in a little witchcraft back there in high school. Did she? Or is just blathering to sound all cool?
So, does she appear to know something about witchcraft? Or did she just see a couple of people that may have scared her a little bit? One second she claiming that she actually practiced witchcraft, and the next she says, “I know what they told me they do.” Almost like she’s making it up as she goes along.
One of my fist dates with a witch was on a satanic alter and I didn’t know it … and, i mean, there was a little blood there and stuff like that …
Quite frankly, she doesn’t sound like someone that’s “dabbled”, or gone so far as to have read a book. She sounds like someone that’s heard stories from a church group that’s just as ignorant as she is. She thinks that a witch will, on a first date, bring a girl back to a blood covered Satanic alter? For a picnic? Really? Firstly, that’s just bad manners. Secondly, witches do not worship Satan, he’s a Judeo-Christian creation. But, it probably doesn’t do any good coming from me.It would be nice if a Wiccan said it. So, here’s a Wiccan saying it:
I really have to question what she is talking about because witchcraft and Satanism are two different things… witches or Wiccans do not believe in Satan. We don’t even believe that Satan exists. Satan is a Christian deity of some kind. He is part of the Christian religion not ours. We worship nature; we work very closely with nature. We do not have blood on our altar and we have little to do with Satan. So I don’t know what Ms. O’Donnell is talking about. I wonder if she knows what she was talking about.

And, according to Anton Levay, founder of Church of Satan, “sacrifices” in Satanism are purely symbolic.
Yeah, she’s nuts.

Bionic Bigfoot

September 16, 2010

Of course, there’s no way this could be the real Bigfoot: it’s not blurry. Everyone knows that the real Bigfoot is blurry, that why the pictures of him always appear to be out of focus!

This Bigfoot is better, though. It’s Bionic!

Lee Majors was perfectly cast as the Six Million Dollar Man. No matter how much slow motion running footage they took of him, his hair never moved.
