Guest Writer- Ke$ha's True Purpose?

Not too long ago, Ke$ha released the video to “Die Young," her first single off her upcoming Warrior album. The song is about what you’d expect: lots of synth, a cloying hook, lyrics about partying and celebrating trash. However, the video features a hodgepodgery of odd shapes and symbols, ranging from roughly a million triangles to pentagrams to animal parts.

As this sort of thing is prone to do, the video forced the YouTube commenters of the world to break out their Illuminati conspiracy theories, because the financial elite and powerful overlords that control our world and it’s fate couldn’t find a better charlatan for their message than a drunken Trans Am owner with a dollar sign in her name--which of course hints to all the Freemason imagery on the dollar bill...it all makes sense now! Check out Mark Dice (“media analyst, political activist, and author”) tear down the specific symbols, from upside-down crosses to the All-Seeing Eye to a hearse labeled “Evil” on the nameplate. To be fair to folks like Dice, the video is quite creepy if you watch it with the sound off.

If you missed the Illuminati breakdown of her video for “Blow”, you’ll see how deep some people go down the John-Nash-rabbit-hole. A rich man gives her a triangle cookie! It’s a symbol of her consuming the Illuminati message! And of course Kesha is not the only target: Lady Gaga is a brainwashed slave. Michael Jackson and Tupac were assassinated by members of the Bildeberg group. Eminem, LIl Wayne, Jay-Z, and Kanye West are forming a cult (a cult with the dopest beats evaaaah).

Conspiracy theories come from a very odd space in the human psyche. It first generates from the instinct to be better than those around you. The conspiracy theorist believes he has the in on a massive, worldwide scam that everyone else is too silly or naive to understand. It also comes from a natural bias of the mind to find patterns even if there are none. 

What intrigues me about Kesha, however, is “Die Young” feeds into the imagery these kooks look for so much it almost seems like satire. Indeed, even Billboard cited the crazy amount of fodder for conspiracy theorists. The Illuminati believers have now popularized the imagery they crave to the point that it’s beginning to appear for the express purpose of gaining their attention which must really drive them crazy.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
