R.C. Christian (A Pseudonyn)

374277_154561391316827_1267657088_n

What’s a “pseudonyn,” you ask? Why it’s the indelible typo carved into the granite tablet set horizontally in the ground a few feet west of the Georgia Guidestones. The name in question, R.C. Christian, is the pseudonymous identity of the man allegedly behind the Georgia Guidestones, probably a word play having to do with the Rosicrucians, the secretive society hotly tipped to be part of whatever the Guidestones are about.

It was also the answer to our last Guidestones Giveaway. This week’s question: What is the name of the evil corporation featured in the Guidestones series? Send us the answer (don’t worry about spelling: like R.C. Christian, we can live with typos) via our contact form and win of a copy of Raymond Wiley’s book, The Georgia Guidestones: America’s Most Mysterious Monument and an official Guidestones cap (first 5 correct answers).

Here are Seasons 1 and 2 of Guidestones, completely free through September thanks to our producer friends.… Read the rest

Remembering Wes Craven

Cinema lost a giant last night as horror master Wes Craven passed away from brain cancer. Craven was a powerhouse in the horror world, bringing us classics such as The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes, and the Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises.

While we horror aficionados will lament his passing, we can rest assured that his legacy will live on.

Notable Quotes:

“I believe the cinema is one of our principal forms of art. It is an incredibly powerful way to tell uplifting stories that can move people to cry with joy and inspire them to reach for the stars.”

“I think there is something about the American dream, the sort of Disneyesque dream, if you will, of the beautifully trimmed front lawn, the white picket fence, mom and dad and their happy children, God-fearing and doing good whenever they can, and the flip side of it, the kind of anger and the sense of outrage that comes from discovering that that’s not the truth of the matter, that gives American horror films, in some ways, kind of an additional rage.”

“The horrors of retirement.… Read the rest

Things Are Hard For Man With World’s Largest Penis

X-ray of the man's Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, 52, penis

X-ray of the man’s Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, 52, penis

Ross Logan via The Mirror:

A man who claims he has the world’s largest penis says women are too scared to have sex with him.

Super-endowed Roberto Esquivel Cabrera also claims his manhood is actually a disability that leaves him unable to work.

Not only that, but the 52-year-old’s 18.9in member is so long that ladies are afraid of it.

The member hangs well below his knees and he wants his ‘gift’ to be recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.

But he also wants to be registered as disabled because he says his giant penis gets in the way and he is not able to hold down a proper job.

Captured Agency: How The FCC Is Dominated By The Industries It Regulates

Cell Phone's Light
A new report published by Harvard University claims the telecommunications industry has unlimited access to shape Federal Communications Commission (FCC) policies at the expense of public health, consumer safety, privacy, and consumer wallets.

The Corrupted Network

The report claims that the FCC, which is a government agency that is supposed to act as a regulator, sits at the heart of a “bipartisan Washington web of institutional corruption” that has for many years been championing corporate interests often at public expense. This industry stranglehold extends from:

  • Its well-placed campaign spending in Congress
  • Control of the FCC‘s Congressional oversight committees
  • Persistent agency lobbying.

The report goes even further by saying that in the case of wireless radiation health issues industry control extends beyond Congress and regulators, to basic scientific research

Troubling Body Of Evidence Linked To Negative Health Effects

Whilst guardedly describing the EMF science as “controversial” the report admits that “a troubling body of evidence suggests exposure to even low emission levels at typical cellular frequencies between 300 MHz and 3 GHz can have a wide range of negative effects.”

The report goes on to cite some of the numerous studies that link wireless exposures to adverse health effects:

A 2002 study that compared the health of people living at different distances within 300 meters of cell towers with those living more than 300 meters away ―Results indicated increased symptoms the closer a person lived to a tower.… Read the rest

13,000 Year Old ‘Black Knight’ UFO Video Reignites One Of The Original Conspiracy Theories

Have you heard about the legendary “Black Knight” UFO? Huffington Post reports on its reemergence:

Conspiracy theories are a natural by-product of space exploration, surfacing to provide an answer when neither our eyes or governments are able to provide one.

One of the oldest theories around has to be the ‘Black Knight’ satellite, a mysterious black object which has been repeatedly referred to in reference to sightings all over the world and indeed even outside of this world.

After a period of absence from the limelight it appears as though the ‘Black Knight’ is back again, appearing in the sky above Jacksonville, Florida.

Believed to be a ‘13,000 year-old alien satellite’ (no, really), the ‘Black Knight’ story originates as far back as 1954, however theorists use a series of images taken in 1998 by the Space Shuttle Endeavour which showed a mysterious black object apparently in orbit around the Earth.

TRIALOGUES

I find the series of Trialogues conducted between Terence McKenna, Rupert Sheldrake, and Ralph Abraham endlessly fascinating. I have listened with inflamed imagination to their discussions ad infinitum, finding them thus far inexhaustibly thought provoking.

For the most complete collection (42+ hours) of their discussions I refer you to The Psychedelic Salon’s Trialogues Archive. (It includes numerous recordings of their private discussions donated by Ralph Abraham.)

Though before I try to sell you on the deep cuts, let’s parade out the hits:

METAMORPHOSIS: CAST OF CHARACTERS

TRIALOGUES AT THE EDGE OF THE MILLENNIUM – June 6, 1998
Part 1: SHELDRAKE
Part 2: MCKENNA
Part 3: ABRAHAM

As perhaps one of the world’s biggest fans of this material, I dreamed the dream of getting to actively participate in the discussion, and in my own silly way, via e-mail, got to do just that.

Vice News Crew Facing Terrorism Charges in Turkey

While the terrorism charges against two Vice News journalists may sound trumped up and Vice Media is pooh-poohing them, consider that Egypt has just sentenced three Al-Jazeera journalists to three years in (a not very nice) prison. The Wrap reports on the situation in Turkey:

Two Vice News reporters and their two colleagues will appear in court on Monday in Turkey to face terrorism charges after being detained on Thursday.

Jake Hanrahan and Philip Pendlebury, two British journalists for Vice, were taken into custody with their driver and fixer in the city of Diyarbakir in southeastern Turkey, initially detained for filming without accreditation; the charges have now evolved to supporting ISIS.

Authorities seized their cameras and raided their hotel rooms. The journalists “face unsubstantiated charges of terrorism” in court, a VICE News spokesperson said. “VICE News continues to work vigorously with all relevant authorities to secure the safe release of our four colleagues,” the spokesperson said.

The making of an Islamic caliphate

ISIS Way (طريق داعش)

The situation in the Islamic world is very grave. I can tell you that when the situation with ISIS is over, we will see the rise of a very militant regime in Iraq. There are different paramilitary factions within Iraq battling ISIS, each of them following the belief that the word of their religious leader is holy, all power is vested in him and he makes law. When this militant state is erected in Iraq after the defeat of ISIS, it is probable that Iraq shall join a union with other Islamic nations, a sort of Islamic Soviet Union.

Yesterday I witnessed the extraordinary sight of hordes of suicide bombers, dressed in black and brandishing Kalashnikovs, marching through the slums of Baghdad.  

Grouped into makeshift platoons – some wearing white shrouds to denote their readiness to die – they demonstrated their deadly skills in an astonishing display by ‘detonating’ the bombs they carried.

Bizarre Mars photos: Signs of life?

Iguana?

Iguana?

A certain section of the Internet spends much of their time analyzing photos from Mars taken by Curiosity. Many say these photos are proof of life. The folks at CNN explore this with more than a hint of snark.

Ian Lee and Nick Thompson via CNN:

For most of us Earthlings, the photos of Mars taken by the Curiosity rover reveal little more than a desolate red landscape inhabited mostly by rocks. Lots and lots of rocks.

But to the more, er, imaginative minds in our midst, these are no ordinary rocks. They’re signs of alien life on the planet next door.

For years, eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists have been trawling through the photos beamed back to Earth by NASA probes and “discovering” mysterious objects that they say proves the existence of extraterrestrial activity on Mars — a world where lizards,mermaids, traffic lights, jelly donuts and a statue of Barack Obama all apparently coexist in the dusty expanses of the red planet.
