DisinfoTV: The Montauk Project

In a sleepy fishing town called Montauk Point, a device called the Montauk Chair was used to focus the energies of a sexually aroused psychic who could create an interdimensional vortex. The goal was to send military operatives back in time to alter key events. This was one of the segments we made for the pilot episode of the disinformation TV series. Although the no-budget production values are evident, the amazing complexity involved in the granddaddy of all conspiracy theories, the Montauk Project, is on full display. It involves mind control, time travel and Nazi gold—and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

‘Zero Hour’ Features Meryl Streep’s Daughter Talking About Disinfo.com

We haven’t been watching the new ABC Television series featuring Anthony Edwards, Zero Hour (it hasn’t been a roaring success thus far), but we might now. As Rob Bricken reports at i09.com, in the current episode “Arron has a discussion with Meryl Streep’s Daughter about the website Disinfo.com and pornography, which, in a feat of acting worthy of her mother, appears to charm Meryl Streep’s Daughter.” He first makes clear that:

Before I begin the recap, I want to make one thing clear: I love Zero Hour. I find it massively entertaining. Oh, it has flaws, and the characters are insane, and nothing makes any sense — but Zero Hour is doing exactly what it sets out to do, and making sense isn’t one of those things. I may mock the show, but I can promise you I look forward to Zero Hour’s madness every single week. And while Zero Hour may have let off the gas a little in this episode, it’s still pushing the crazy pedal to the metal…

Sounds good right?… Read the rest

Amazon Cuts Ties with “Neo-Nazi” Security

Disinfonaut Russell Grant tipped us that Amazon.com will no longer employ alleged Neo-Nazi security firm Hess.

Via Salon:

An Amazon spokeswoman in Germany, Ulrike Stoecker, said Monday the online retailer has ended its relationship with Hensel European Security Services “with immediate effect.”

A documentary shown on ARD public television last week showed staff of the security company – whose initials spell out the name of Adolf Hitler’s deputy Hess – wearing clothes linked to Germany’s neo-Nazi scene. It interviewed people claiming they were mistreated by the staff.

Stoecker told The Associated Press that Amazon has a “zero tolerance limit for discrimination and intimidation and expects the same of other companies it works with.”

Thanks Russell!

So Apparently Occult Rap is a Thing: SickTanick Tha Soulless

Meet SickTanick, a self-described “Occult Rap” artist rapper who has gained some degree of notoriety for his use of esoteric themes in his lyrics.

Here’s a bit of his biography, via the horrorcore wiki:

Not long after hitting his teenage years he found a obsession with the occult, being turned away from church and “god” he found a path to a more dark way of life, Satanism. Reading Anton Lavey’s “The Satanic Bible” and all of its companions, he soon became secluded from the outside world. Lavey’s writings were never enough, he soon delved into many books by Aleister Crowley, The man who was once labeled “The most wicked man on earth”, and other occult related books such as the Necronomicon, The Black Arts, And many books on Necromancy and Necromantik Rites. This opened a new world for him and would come into play much more then he thought in his daily life.

Some of the nation’s most contagious laughers are expected.
