This reblog of the week explores the Fnordic Culture of the Discordian Tribe of Eris. My own recent digging around has unearthed a few old but new gems, including this scroll of wisdom, shown below, describing how the Aani myths relate to the chaotic origins of Discordia, and the legends of Eris, the Goddess of strife and thingimy-bobs of a messy nature, described first by the fed-up philosopher Richard Dawkins, which blossomed into the later memes of the post-post-classical meltdown period. Confused? Good. You are starting to get the fnord of the thing. Read on, for further illumination.

Discordian YouTube Connections? I’ve often suspected there’s a large area of cross-over, but never been able to definitively prove anything. And just look at the bother one can get into, speculating on things without proof. Defango recommends Tarl Warwick‘s (Styx hexenhammer666′s) book on Occult Memetics on a recent video. Interestingly, Tarl Warwick is also the editor of this little tome. He must be a busy guy, as he is also running for the position of Governer of Vermont this year. How fnordy is that. If you are worried about demon infestation issues from reading the Grimoire, you could stick to the Discordian version, which you probably won’t catch demons off, unless you consider a fit of the giggles evil.

Sigh. I’ll probably never get to the bottom of the entanglements of ideas that criss-cross through meme culture. Meanwhile……..

Deep Marketing – #thegame23 and Q

I had a spur of the moment notion last night. I thought, dammit, I’m gonna do another livestream, ‘cos I like where the Q conversation is going, and I got some things to say. They might seem to be taking a rather jaundiced view of Q, but I’m not known for being a yellow-belly, so I took the plunge, and after a quick smoke and scribble on a sticky pad, had my topics organised, and was good to go.

Marketing, dull, dull, dull. But relevant to the topic, particularly the subject of deep marketing techniques, in relation to the YouTube (and perhaps, now, more main stream trending topic of Q). If you don’t know who the heck Q is, start here, and work your way back to me, ‘cos you are coming in at the tail end of the story. If you are familiar with the Q phenomenon, you might get a different perspective from my livestream chat (lecture, to be honest) about it, streamed over about an hour and a half. I tell you the order of topics in the beginning, so you can skip to the bit you are interested in if you are stuck for time, however, the topics are interrelated, so they make sense when the whole video is watched. Hope you find something of interest to aid you in your Q search for truth. UPDATE: The Discordians latest attempts to conflate Q, Cicada and thegame23, in accordance with the LARPing nature of the movement’s stated aims of turning everything anyone ever believed into such confusing nonsense that all of reality becomes a gluey soup where your mind gets stuck forever, making you incapable of distinguishing reality from fiction, and they get to laugh their socks off at meta-intellectual they are being. Truly nasty people, who don’t care what damage is done to people’s sense of reality, or what damage is done to other’s genuine projects, as they claim credit for the work of others, in order to carry out their OperationMindf*ck plans.

Masked Comedians Of Discordia and the QAnon Phenomenon

book coverBy now, if you are American, and spend a lot of time on the interwebs, you will be asking yourself, as I have, is the QAnon phenomenon (kindof rolls off the tongue nicely, that) a big spoof, a bit of light-hearted fnordic ludibrium with some unfortunate side-effects.
Fnordic humour is a big part of the Discordian outlook. Taking yourself, or the world around you too seriously would just kill the joke. The other thing is, not everyone gets to be in on the joke, some folks are busy being serious and don’t have time to joke around about reality, and that’s just fine. In fact, it often makes the joke even funnier for those in on it, as it did in the case of the Q phenomenon, for those who maintained that Q were a group of hackers LARPing about, at everyone else’s expense. When Donald Trump decided to do something very serious, on Friday 13th April, involving Syria, a disputed chemical attack, and a bombing mission, the joke turned very sour, as his most loyal supporters, dubbed the ‘deplorables‘ by his election opponent Hillary Clinton, reeled in shock from the departure from the promises he had made in campaigns. They were no longer in the mood for the triumphalist joking about that gave birth to some truly epic memes such as Pepe the Frog.

Not all Discordians have a sense of humour unfortunately. There are some people who are right full of themselves there, as there are in all organisations, no matter how loosely organised they say their structure is. Take Cramer Florian, for example, who got quite irate over a PewDiePie video that was posted on the Discordian ‘Neoists‘ page on Facebook.

His anger seemed a bit over the top, until he admitted that himself and many of his pals are affiliated with the Antifa political organisation, which has recently been designated an internal terrorist group by the US government, after a series of particularly violent clashes with ‘alt-right‘ groups at protests. Eric Clanton, anyone? Mr. college professor, Don-a-balaclava then attack people with a bike lock in order to fight to make social conditions better for the proletariat.

Or ‘Moldy-locks, Antifa’s pin-up gal, who thought she could throw Molotov cocktails with the best of them, until someone shut her down with a swift punch to the forehead, proving that it is not always wrong to hit a girl. In fact, I have to admit, I laughed a little.
