Theme Predictions for 2013

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

is 'book tour' a euphemism for being on a good one? a really good one, apparently.

Wow! That was amazing, BAS. :D



Someone I know posted the link on Facebook and thought it was amazing, which is why I posted it here. A serious theme suggestion from me, for a change.

I can neither confirm nor deny.

All right, you got me. As long as the UFOs remain "Unidentified" all is well; it helps to drive funding for some black programs.
But there's no substantial proof of any sentient beings inhabiting the craft. But they are not really craft, but some sort of optical illusion of course.


So what about that theme, huh?

Theme Idea: US versus THEM!

Just imagine if you were one of the first Taino Indians to meet Christopher Columbus. You'd be smart to strike a deal with him and his men, wouldn't you? Of course you would!

Oh, those were the days, weren't they? So innocent and positive. We hadn't yet discovered their secret hunger for human souls.

I like the Beadwindow reflectance sounds in that recording. If you slow down those parts, and play them backwards you may hear interesting messages. I had thought YouTube was blocking those sidechannel messages.

Of course, I will deny everything.

You UFO theorists create your own coverup. When amateur "researchers" gallop about with their half-baked "theories" (especially when it is associated with "Burning Man"), it just blows holes in your credibility. That, plus our agent David Icke (do you think that name is a mistake?), is all we need to keep humanity pacified.

oh dougly, here's where you're wrong.

it's a generational thing. Perhaps you don't quite see things as i do.

i listen and watch what 14 year olds absorb. I see things thru the filters of pop culture and memes, viral videos and 15 minute attention spans.

hey DJ , bring that circular logic back...

most of the "Kids" get their news from Jon Stewart and FaceBook.

normal and accepted mainstream media isnt cool.

DUH.

weird is the new black, and i'm PITCH...




try as you like, you only reinforce the notion of it's importance.

thanks BTW... :twisted: :twisted:
