7 Signs of a Sacred Clown: Heyoka Wisdom & The Healing Trickster Shaman


Fool of the Tarot by Hannah Jakubowski

I felt these articles were thought provoking and familial with the many disinfonauts who, from what I can tell, seek to enact change and incite awareness through irony and humor. This is for those of us who’d rather die from laughing than live without ever cracking up.

The Path of the Sacred Clown: Where Trickster and Shaman Converge by Gary Z McGee

“The main function of a sacred clown is to deflate the ego of power by reminding those in power of their own fallibility, while also reminding those who are not in power that power has the potential to corrupt if not balanced with other forces, namely with humor. But sacred clowns don’t out-rightly derive things. They’re not comedians, per se, though they can be. They are more like tricksters, poking holes in things that people take too seriously. Through acts of satire and showy displays of blasphemy, sacred clowns create a cultural dissonance born from their Crazy Wisdom, from which anxiety is free to collapse on itself into laughter.

’90s Christian Kid’s Show Warns of the Dangers of R-Rated Movies

A glorious snippet from the Christian show, McGee and Me! Don’t trust those R-rated movies, kids.

“Your mind is the most important thing you have. That’s why the Lord is very clear when he says we have to be careful what we put in it. Just by going to see [Night of the Blood Freaks], you’ve put something in your mind to… to dirty it.”

Reach for the Moon‘s minimalist vibe is really something.

Mysterious Space Seed ‘may be proof aliens are watching us and created life on Earth’

Jonathan Symcox via The Mirror:

Scientists in the UK say this microscopic metal globe could be proof that aliens are watching us.

Balloons sent 27km into the stratosphere to collect debris came back with the object, no bigger than the width of a human hair.

Professor Milton Wainwright, leader of the joint study by the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology and University of Sheffield, said the structure is made from titanium and vanadium metals and has a biological “gooey” substance oozing from it.

Scientists believe it could contain genetic material used to propagate alien life on Earth.

“It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre,” he told the Daily Express website.

“We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium.

Should You Compare it to a Nazi? – A Flowchart

Godwin’s Law: is an Internet adage asserting that “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1 that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism. Despite being described as universal regarding the subject of the discussion, the Godwin’s law is more likely to be applicable to social topics (including politics, law, religion, etc.).

The World Is Flatulence: The Enduring Appeal of the Tasteless

via The Atlantic:

In the ruins of Pompeii, among crumbling walls charred, centuries ago, by the heat of Vesuvius, archaeologists found the remnants of ancient graffiti. Here are some of the age-old etches that beckon us, lyrically, from past:

“Restituta, take off your tunic, please, and show us your hairy privates.”

And:

“Apollinaris, the doctor of the emperor Titus, defecated well here.”

And:

“I screwed the barmaid.”

One suspects the messages might have read a tad differently in the original Latin—rare is the graffiti artist who prefaces his commentary with “please”—but you get the idea: The scatological, the stuff of defecation and hairy privates, has an extremely long, if not an extremely proud, history. It’s turds all the way down, basically, and that’s especially true when it comes to humor. Approximately 65 percent of Shakespeare’s poetry features phallic puns.
