Haven’t read the Bible in years but there are scriptures about that
Also Constantine was a pagan turned Christian, so do what you will with that
Well, most would agree that he converted and founded the Holy Roman Empire out of political expediency. He also kicked-off the on going debate over what is canon after trying to collate all in one book - the one we call the Bible. If you need anymore completely accurate and irreverent Biblical examinations, then just ask.
I just tried to watch the new Exorcist and I got a third into it (I’ll explain later in the post). I was boring, badly written and looked like a child who likes smashing dinosaur toys together was their screenwriter. Please, do not watch this: it is one of the worst films I’ve seen in a while and you know that I love bad films.
I stopped as I was chatting to my mother about this monumental turd and she wished that I have a relaxing night - So I stopped watching. This makes Exorcist 2 look good and seems to pale in comparison to Repossessed.
Frankly, it made me want to watch Exorcist three and enjoy all the nuance in the fish scene.
I think only Neil Breen could elevate this:
Eyes on Breen!
To clear my cinematic palette - I have cued up Petey Wheatstraw. As my bedtime watch.
Bitch! Are you for real?!
It makes Shaft look tame and dull. I regard it as the Citizen Kane of Blaxploitation. With things like Live and Let Die at the other end of the scale: Bond trying to be fly was just stupid!
Rudy Ray Moore will always be the ultimate badass or, ‘00 Shut the Fuck up Bitch!’
I tried watching the news and thought I was watching Brass Eye:
This is the news - try to pay attention!
Oh, I forgot to mention that Brass Eye is on the pedestal of the finest British satire: with the Idi Amin Show jostling for position:
Are you local Dave?
I am selecting my official day off movie choices: wizards, vampire hunters and supernatural entities have the night off for Halloween - Too many annoying children and idiotic ghost hunters on the streets.
After the utter drivel of Exorcist Expanded (I actually watched the rest and facepalmed many times: I didn’t realise that the patriarchy was you not being allowed in the room when two men died for your daughter! Then we had what was like South Park’s Super Best Friends teaming up:
For those whose theology comes from notes on the back of a cigarette packet, rites of exorcism rely on intercession or the power of names generally: It is the oldest form of magic and must be used by relying on only one entity in order for it to be valid. For example, almost all Christians invoke the name of Jesus in their prayers, Catholics will add the saints to intercede for them, practitioners of vodou and vodun with request that Papa Legba aids them in contacting the Lwa they seek etc etc. Putting all together only cancels all! That’s your free theology lesson over.
So, I’ll be going all 80s and 90s to have fun and skip 5 Nights at Freddy’s.
This second movie comes with all of the trigger warnings! ALL OF THEM!!!
For tonight’s easing into All Hallow’s Eve joy, after having Brian bringing pleasure into my day - only one movies could ever be chosen!
For those looking for a horrific horror to watch tonight, here’s Mike and the guys discussing watchbait. Sadly, I have actually seen the majority of the movies mentioned.
Well, as it is Movember, I will be growing my moustache to ensure it is able to trap fine ladies in. Not much of a challenge with my wizardly visage.
So Blackadder tonight with all of its impressive manliness:
For tomorrow, I’ll opt for Surrealist classic: Schizoid Man from The Prisoner: a moustache is a plot point in this episode. (Yes, my demented mind even remembers stupid things like this).
Well, lethal in many countries. Over here, local tap water is the spring water we sell to foreigners in a few areas. I’ll skip over the Dasani disaster: where Coca-Cola tried to sell tap water which was more impure than tap water to the Brits.
Sadly, I cannot find an easy to access recording of The Prisoner: Schizoid Man to share without relying on you setting sail in your finest galleon (or using my fluffy clouds).
Luckily the finale, Fall Out, is on YouTube. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen any of this psychedelic surrealist masterpiece before - The Prisoner is something to be experienced and not understood.
Frankly, I will be rather annoyed if my final interrogation before finally meeting No.1 wasn’t conducted in such a glorious manner:
I just noticed that a new Junka landed: So, you can enjoy it at the same time as me:
(Warning. As I have just started watching it - there may be massive trigger warnings needed).
digesting while enjoying music and videos to clear my head: this suitable after over a year of the Snow Woke debate to clear me to read -
