"holy fauxhawk"

from wikipedia:
Chrism (Greek word literally meaning "an anointing"), also called "myrrh" (myron), holy anointing oil, or "consecrated oil", is a consecrated oil used in the Roman Catholic Church in the administration of certain sacraments.

Chrism is made of olive oil and is scented with a sweet perfume, usually balsam.

its scent has been likened to clove cigarettes. 

it does not mean jism of christ. 

it has been bemoaned for its tendency to seep into stuffed animals and clothing. 

it may take more than 2 shampoos to remove the scent.

it makes a fine hair gel for the recently baptized.

2. thou shalt not get high and tweeze thy eyebrows

christ did a cow shit in here?

here's the opening line to an email i got this week:

Hi Heather!

It's Emily know the one that said "Christ did a cow shit in here?" in a nice little play and yes I believe you peed your pants on your parents dining room chair...that was me.

her family of 3 girls around the ages of my brother and me, i was oldest by a couple years, Emily was youngest by a few years, would come visit for a couple weeks in the summer and we would go to their house at bonnet shores in rhode island for a couple weeks in the summer too and we would do plays. the one she's talking about she was maybe 4 or 5 years old and i was about 8th grade and she knocked on the front door in a skit from 'kentucky fried movie' for a fake air freshener commercial, she had white hair like an angel and knocked on the door and said 'christ did a cow shit in here' and it was so funny i peed on the chair.

it was either this year or the following summer.

emily is on the left, the sign says 'politics in review,' my brother has blue eyebrows.

howitzer christmas

the christmas scene in hickory, nc. that's a real world war I howitzer on the left. i want to know how many people it killed.

if we all cancel christmas, we'll kill the economy

history isn't written yet,
we're not stuck in a depression yet,
if we stop spending any money won't the economy necessarily shrivel and wither?
shouldn't we keep spending? in places we love for experiences and things and food we love?
no fear.

i keep seeing 'stocks tumble amidst fears...'
let's stop fearing
and stocks will climb

joseph campbell and the grateful dead

i posted this to another site about a year ago, and want to resurrect it here.

i've been reading a couple of joseph campbell's books & a biography lately and came across this quote of his yesterday in "The Hero's Journey" a kind of autobiographical conversation book Campbell did during the last years of his life where he went over the main points of his lectures and life's work that he'd done on mythology, symbols, dreams, etc. which is all summed up nicely in this book & PBS series, The Power of Myth.

"The next great, proud moment was when Mickey Hart and Bob Weir come along and tell me I've helped them. Well, I never -- the rock music never appealed to me at all. It was largely monotonous, it seemed to me. Then they invited Jean [his wife] and me to an event in Oakland that just became a dance revelation. I got something there that made me note that this is magic. And it's magic for the future...

They hit a level of humanity that makes everybody at one with each other. It doesn't matter about this race thing, this age thing, I mean, everything else dropped out. The wonderful thing was, compared to the Hitler rallies that you see in the film that were used to a political purpose, here it was just the experience of the identity of everybody with everybody else.

I was carried away in a rapture. And so I am a Deadhead now..."

In February of 1985, Campbell had attended a Grateful Dead concert and below are his comments from that experience.

Joseph Campbell :

"The Deadheads are doing the dance of life and this I would say, is the answer to the atom bomb."

"I had a marvelous experience two nights ago. I was invited to a rock concert. ( laughter in the audience) I'd never seen one. This was a big hall in Berkeley and the rock group were the Grateful Dead, whose name, by the way, is from the Egyptian Book of the Dead. And these are very sophisticated boys. This was news to me.

Rock Music has never seemed that interesting to me. It's very simple and the beat is the same old thing. But when you see a room with 8000 young people for five hours going through it to the beat of these boys ... The genius of these musicians- these three guitars and two wild drummers in the back... The central guitar, Bob Weir, just controls this crowd and when you see 8000 kids all going up in the air together... Listen, this is powerful stuff! And what is it? The first thing I thought of was the Dionysian festivals, of course. This energy and these terrific instruments with electric things that zoom in... This is more than music. It turns something on in here (the heart?). And what it turns on is life energy. This is Dionysus talking through these kids. Now I've seen similar manifestations, but nothing as innocent as what I saw with this bunch. This was sheer innocence. And when the great beam of light would go over the crowd you' d see these marvelous young faces in sheer rapture- for five hours! Packed together like sardines! Eight thousand of them! Then there was an opening in the back with a series of panel windows and you look out and there's a whole bunch in another hall, dancing crazy. This is a wonderful fervent loss of self in the larger self of a homogeneous community. This is what it is all about!

It reminded me of Russian Easter. Down in New York we have a big Russian Cathedral. You go there on Russian Easter at midnight and you hear Kristos anesti! Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen! It's almost as good as a rock concert. (laughter) It has the same kind of life feel. When I was in Mexico City at the Cathedral of the Virgin of Guadeloupe, there it was again. In India, in Puri, at the temple of the Jagannath- that means the lord of the Moving World- the same damn thing again. It doesn't matter what the name of the God is, or whether its a rock group or a clergy. It's somehow hitting that chord of realization of the unity of God in you all, that's a terrific thing and it just blows the rest away."

live music is the best.
