For those unfamiliar with my game: I write about a combination of pop-culture, esotericism, current events, and my own neuroses on this site.
Let’s get started!
Well, as you might very well already know, “Coronavirus: The Reality Series” is a ratings smash—better than “The Bachelor,” even!
Compared to my peers, I don’t mention our current president a lot on Twitter or anywhere else. This is because I feel his karmic payload is SO bad at this point, to even mention him by name or retweet memes with his image sort of “taints” me a bit with his bad energy. Truly.
There comes a point with certain individuals where they have become so bad, have so messed up with no excuse so profoundly, that I feel sorry for them. And I feel sorry for them because I picture them at the edge of The Pearly Gates trying to explain this shit to St. Peter.
And St. Peter’s like:
Here is one of the all-time great Jack Nicholson scenes, from the (somewhat forgotten? somewhat overlooked? awkwardly suddenly relevant?) 1996 Tim Burton movie Mars Attacks!
Nicholson plays the president of the United States; as the invading aliens are literally on his doorstep, he launches into a desperate speech chock-full of every patriotic cliche in his arsenal:
You know, I have a BUNCH of notes on Mars Attacks! in some folder…I oughta do a post one day!
I want to talk about the latest movie poop, but the news cycle just seems to be crowded out at the moment. My health (let’s talk about ME!) is kinda meh at the moment…but it’s ALWAYS been meh. Every morning I wake up and wonder if my meh-ness is the coronavirus. Every goddamn morning.
Other things my meh-ness could be:
- Seasonal allergies
- Meh diet
- Lack of exercise
- Have not left house further than front porch in a week
So MANY things!
(I have a pet theory that The Emoji Movie was the key event that set off the Eschaton; prove me wrong.)
Anyway, some days trying to post **anything** feels like a slog through moist concrete whilst wearing a pair of ill-fitting Crocs. But it’s CONTENT, dammit! I’m not doing it for me, I’m doing it for the Younglings and generations far-flung into the future.
Thanks for reading.
