Sunday Sermon, anyone? Secret Jesuit Teachings

The greatest cross in the world is to be without a cross’. These are the words of the famous Jesuit preacher Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, a popular lecturer on a wide range of topics. Bishop Fulton’s humour  and knowledge on a wide range of insightful topics made him popular with Sunday Catholic TV audiences in the 50s. His series of shows begins with a sermon on

Bend the knee, pull up a pew in the comfort of your own home, and get ready to take notes (or just write the best jokes down; you’re allowed laugh in this chapel), because I guarantee he will hypnotize you with his riveting sermons. Or just switch channels and watch cartoons instead.

Travels With Voss – How Marketing Utilizes the Divine to sell the Mundane

YouTube LARPS involve the utilization of the most cynical methods methods imaginable by cross-platform marketers  to emotionally engage the viewer while distancing them increasingly from reality. The post below from Symzonia explores surrealist art in relation to the reflected realities that lie on the other side of our reality. Marketers reappropriate and subvert Fine art  and transmute the sublime into the mundane in the name of Mammon. The aim is to engage the viewer, keep him going around in ever decreasing circles, before he finally disappears into a rabbit-hole which is the blackest pit of all, Dante’s 4th circle, where hopefully all marketers will reside for eternity, being poked eternally by the rest of us. If we ever speak to another human being again, that is, after having our souls raped by these lowlives, whose moral justification is the Assassins Creed, of killing them with kindness. The kindness extends to endlessly poking YOU with endless volumes of spam Emails bringing you to other places you really don’t want to end up in, and pleas to interact in Facebook groups, where they mine your data, in order to have something to read in hell. Meanwhile, decent folk are kind of hoping they’ll choke on their own psychotic pills. Perhaps we would be better off hanging out with nobler creatures, but it would be a pity to lose one’s faith in the goodness of at least most of the people we interact with. They are not all actors  in the movie zombie apocalypse. They are the great big happy family that wants to sell you something, and all you need to give up in return is your soul.
