Run This Town

Well here it is, the highly anticipated video by Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Rihanna, titled "Run This Town". As usual, PimPb1420 is already up on this and made a video about it before the official video was even released.

Jay-Z's blatant references to Crowley are not random as Crowley's "man as God" philosophies are present throughout the entire music video.
First of all, I hope you guys noticed the repetitive X signs they were making throughout the video. This is of huge importance as the letter X is associated with various mystery religions as well as Christianity itself as X is the letter of Christ. Here is an excerpt from Codex Magica:
"An X is an ancient symbol for change or transformation.. .long associated in medieval and renaissance art with the coming of the Messiah who shall make all things new.
—Jim Tresner, 33°
Scottish Rite Journal

The Illuminist/Masonic meaning of the X is simply this: It is the sign of Osiris, the great (Egyptian) sun God...
—Texe Marrs
Dark Majesty

The sign, or letter X, has a long history of use in the Ancient Mystery Religions, in apostate Judaism, in Freemasonry, and in the occult. The Illuminati elite use it to this day to symbolize key phenomena and mark significant events.
The mysterious letter X seems to take on a wide and varied life of its own, with or without the secret aid of the elite sponsorship. Mark Euston, of the Christian Intelligence Resource Network, in a letter to the author, detailed some of the many examples of the use of the letter X. For example, the well-known science fiction TV show, The X Files.

Pornographic movies are rated X and the more sensational movies in the raw flesh category are touted as XXX, or triple X. Euston noted that we have the Microsoft Corporation creation of X-box, the movie X-Men, off-brand products are called "Brand X," and of course, there is the U.S. terrorist prison camp, Camp X-Ray at Guantanamo, Cuba. Today's youth have been called Generation X, and a lot of folks are concerned about a planet, or star, reported to be speeding toward us called Planet X that has occult significance.

Euston asks about all the usages of X,

"Are these just strange coincidences, some type of mind control trigger, or a subliminal conditioning of some kind?"

Good question.

Another friend, Kathy Creek, wrote and asked if I had noticed the many new drugs being released by pharmaceutical firms with either a V, Z, or an X in their name? She mentioned an ad she had seen for Clarinex, an allergy drug that had a little sun sign used to dot the letter "i" in Clarinex.

John Myers, another astute friend interested in such topics, sent me a lengthy letter and included an excerpt from author Edward Waite's reference book, A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. Myers wryly observed that, "generally, things that are bad are X-rated." He mentioned, too, the interesting use of the letter X in the Rx of drug stores; the use of the four-letter, abbreviated word Xmas to replace Christmas, and the fact that, in Black's Law Dictionary, it says that the sign or mark of X is sometimes made as a substitute for a man's signature on legal documents.

And the continued use of the mysterious X abounds. Children at play can be heard to say, "Cross my heart and hope to die." In the Greek alphabet, the letter Chi is denoted with the symbol X, and given the numerical designation of 600. The numeroligists say that triple X, then, would yield the number 666

The skulls are prominently featured because death and rebirth as a vehicle for spiritual power is a concept associated with the Occult. I'm sure some of you noticed Rihanna's skull rings.
More X symbolism as we see an encircled X on this guys jacket.
I cannot tell if Rihanna is wearing an Iron Cross necklace or if this is some other symbol.

And of course the typical "Roc" signs throughout the video.

Britney officially passes the Lolita crown to Miley

Teen sensation Miley Cyrus appeared on the Teen Choice Awards this Sunday to present a Your Ultimate Choice award to Britney Spears. The walking Disney brand gave a speech about her "hero" and proceeded to show a montage of Britney's most famous sexually suggestive video clips to an audience full of teenagers. Later Britney herself appeared with her hair all over the place looking more like she did during her breakdown (she has been appearing like this a lot lately).

Later Miley once again caused controversy by dancing on a pole. This is interesting considering this recently happened.

Remember this episode of South Park?

Blonde Luciferian Magick

Hopefully I'm not boring anyone with all of the Madonna talk lately. It's just that once you go there with her there's so much to talk about. After this entry and the final Magic Mirrors post I'll be done with her for a while and will be moving on to other stuff, maybe some males for a change, the ladies seem to be getting all of the attention, I wonder why. Anyway, with this post I will be further exploring symbolism in popular culture in relation to the Occult, Luciferianism, and Gnosticism.
In 1993 Madonna embarked on what would end up being yet another controversial yet recording breaking tour. The Girlie Show featured some of her darkest themes up until that point. For the last performance of the show Madonna performed a cover of Sly & The Family Stone's "Everybody Is A Star" along with her own debut single "Everybody".

The title "Everybody is a Star" is interesting as it relates to the famous "Every man and woman is a star" quote from Aleister Crowley's Book of the Law.

As I stated before, Madonna uses themes in a very systematic way, so this was not the first time she used this theme. In her song "Spotlight" she sings "Everybody is a star" and just last year on her song "Beat Goes On", featuring Kanye West, she commands her audience to "Be the star".

The Girlie Show is full of symbolic presentations of Tantra, sexual rituals, and Magic.
She beings the song with "Erotica". When examined, the song "Erotica" is about mental possession. She performs this song in a ring that lights up with fire later on in the show. Ring of fire represent the ring of knowledge. Many rituals are done within rings of fire. I have meant to blog about this for a while. Check out Aaliyah's "4 Page Letter" video and Britney's "Womanizer" performances (Good Morning America, X Factor).
The second song she performs is "Fever". As she sings "You give me fever" and slowly takes off her blindfolds. The performance reminds me of Kundalini awakening of the base Chakra. Not just due to the sexual nature of the performance but also the burning sensation many say occurs during the activation of this Chakra. She also uses two male dancers who dance around her. Could her dancers represent the intertwining Serpents of Kundalini (it's important to note that Madonna practices Kundalini yoga).
As I stated here, Madonna's songs about dance are really about disassociation. The pose she is doing in that above picture from the performance of "Vogue" reminds me of out of body experiences as the eyes are usually depicted as leaving the body. This article explains how Out of Body experiences relates to Kundalini.

Kundalini Energy Projection

According to Vedas when kundalini is united with Lord Siva at the sahasrara Chakra, one who executes the union enjoys the Supreme Bliss.

Kundalini is a plexus, a reservoir of psychic energy situated at the base of the spine. Considered as the Energy of the Divine, it binds us when we project its energy into the world and yet, it liberates us when we return this energy to its divine origin.

Experiencing trance is in itself a divine feeling, but at the same time, it is very difficult for everyone to experience it, unless mastered through Vedic practices of meditation, yoga and spiritualism. Trance can be both voluntary and involuntary, but in both the effect is the same – disassociation of the soul from the body, and temporary detachment from everything related to body. It is neither the state of wakefulness nor that of the sleep. It is an intermediate state of being.

Most of us experience trance, albeit inadvertently, when we are absent-minded – probably absorbed in something but not passing through a cluttered phase of thinking. Children are said to be in brief state of trance (which is, in fact, high level of concentration) when they leave you unresponded (say, while watching television, playing a video game or simply solving a puzzle) if you call them.

Trance as a mental phenomenon has been studied experimentally too and is being considered as important in the way that it can provide meaningful insights into areas where we are stuck in our process in the mind-body medicine and/or simply “Out of Body Experiences.” A researcher has hypothesized that "stepping out of the body by will" can be performed in three different states:

1. in trance
2. iin the "half sleep state" – a moment before falling asleep
3. iin lucidity or the state of false awakening

"...go inside, all you'll find is inspiration; your dreams will open the door" - Vogue

Many people comment on Madonna's use of Marilyn Monroe iconography in her work but she has referenced Marlene Dietrich just as much and the Girlie Show was no different. In fact, she referenced Marlene twice in this tour. The first referenced was during the performance of "Express Yourself". In this performance she is referencing Marlene in Blonde Venus. Venus is very important to Occultist as the pentagram is believed to trace Venus' conjunction with the sun. Madonna symbolically used a pentagram in "Human Nature", a song that was written in response to the backlash she received from the 92/93 era.
She referenced Dietrich again in "Like a Virgin" even taking it a step further and incorporating "Falling In Love Again" from The Blue Angel into the performance. This performance also plays with androgyny which is very important symbolism.

Anyway, to wrap it up on Madonna I would like to show another connection on Madonna's way of thinking and Crowley's. In 1991 Madonna told The Advocate "They digest it on a lot of different levels. Some people will see it and be disgusted by it, but maybe they'll be unconsciously aroused by it. If people keep seeing it and seeing it, eventually it's not going to be such a strange thing."

This quote is similar to Crowley's definition of Magick which is "Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will."

Madonna's quote also reminds me of Andy Warhol's use of repetition in his work which was believed to be social commentary on popular culture.
Madonna's new greatest hits cover was inspired by one of Warhol's Monroe pieces.

But anyway, moving along.

I wanted to post a few things about Goldfrapp. First of all we have the Peacock symbolism I mentioned here.
Another photo Goldfrapp used to promote Supernature. Clearly a bitten apple symbolizing eating from the tree of knowledge. I went into how common that symbolism is here.

Busted: Statue's a Dead Ringer for Jacko

Busted: Statue's a Dead Ringer for Jacko

Jackson-like bust gets attention at Field Museum


John Weinstein, The Field Museum

The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust.

The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Jacko --- complete with disfigured nose.
Unfortunately the bust, which was carved sometime between 1550 B.C. and 1050 B.C., is of a woman and MJ likely never had the chance to see the statuette.
“I have no idea whether Jackson ever visited the museum,” a Field spokesperson said to the Sun-Times' Michael Sneed. “But the similarity between the limestone statue of a woman – which is about 3,000 years old --- and Jackson is astounding.”
Interestingly, Jackson cast himself as an interloper in ancient Egypt in his video for “Remember the Time,” so maybe he sensed some Egyptian roots.

An interesting point of view from Lostworld (a member of various forums):
It's not about religion for me. I've never been a religious person, my search has never found its answers within religion.
Religions are being used as an opium to the people, to keep them occupied and away from the real truth.
Still, religons, although the writings has been altered many times, share some common ground - the ancient (alien) gods, that IMO are the key to our background.

Perhaps, religious persons more often use the names "Satan", "demons" etc. On the other hand, I think too much nowdays have to be explained within psychology... Before everything was blamed on demons, now everything must be explained as "mental problems". I don't agree with that. Why can't it be both?
Yes, you can be damaged in the head, just as well as your arm may hurt = nothing demonic about that. BUT, there are people who are being haunted and "bullied" by demons too, and they refuse to call themselves mentally ill etc, they just KNOW.
I've seen too much and experienced too much myself to say this doesn't exist... On the contrary, to me it explains a lot!
And I do think lightbeings are more likely to be victims by these beings, due to their energy...

They attack you cause you are good, so you will not be able to do what you were meant to do; spread the truth, help chilren & animals etc. They want you to not function, cause when you do you are a threat to them. A threat that must be stopped...
Notice; there are a lot of sheeple who doesn't know about the NWO, the Elite etc who are good people and who do a lot of good things and don't get attacked as much so IMO we who know more/who are different, lightwarriors/starchildren etc are more targeted.

I also think that if you're feeling really bad & get dragged down by them it will only get worse and they will attack you even more. Cause then they have a "free way" into you, the door is open so to speak. It's a negative spiral... That's why it's important to try to stay active, keep negative energy away, eat healthy, surround yourself with good things etc.

Lolita's Candy

I first discussed pedophilia in this entry about the questionable content in work by Madonna, Drake, and Lil Wayne. Since then it has become a subject that seems to be coming up more and more. I will start with the woman I began with last time, Madonna.

Madonna's 2008 album shares it's title with a thought provoking and emotionally draining film starring Ellen Page (Juno). The film is about a sexual predator who meets a 14 year old girl online and invites her over to his house. A LOT of other things happen but I don't want to ruin the film for anyone who might plan on seeing it (and you should, it's good). What I can say is that the public's reaction to the film is even more fascinating than the film itself. Believe it or not but many people actually feel sympathy for the sexual predator (you may understand why after you see the film...two wrongs don't make a right though).

Another film Madonna's album Hard Candy has drawn comparisons to is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp.

According to this website the performances for the song were heavily inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's star, Johnny Depp, was accused of imitating Michael Jackson when this film was first released. Many also speculated that his character subliminally represented a pedophile which is interesting considering Michael Jackson's own legal battles concerning child molestation.

A Daily Dose of Deprogramming recently featured a blog entry about Johnny Depp (click here to read it) and brought up something I didn't think of, R. Kelly has an album titled Chocolate Factory. As many of you probably know R. Kelly has been accused of child molestation aswell (he's also worked with Michael Jackson).

Johnny Depp's next project is the highly anticipated (by the public, not me) Alice In Wonderland directed by Tim Burton (same director as Charlie and the chovolate Factory). Johnny Depp will be playing the Mad Hatter and many have already speculated that his inspiration for this role was Madonna.
I personally do not feel Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter looks like Madonna but the comparison is interesting considering this is the third music icon Depp has been accused of using as inspiration for a character (Keith Richards for Pirates, MJ for Chocolate Factory, Madonna for Alice).

Alice In Wonderland is based off of the book Through The Looking Glass written by Lewis Carroll. For years it was believed that Lewis was a pedophile but there was no evidence. Years ago photos were discovered with Lewis Carroll kissing a young girl on the lips. Photos were also released of nude underage girls from his personal collection. While this doesn't prove he was a pedophile it raises some questions. Alice In Wonderland is used as a trigger device in trauma based mind control.

This is not the first accused pedophile (who's book went on to become a Disney film) Johnny Depp has been connected to. In the film Finding Neverland Johnny Depp played J. M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan who has been accused of being a pedophile. So far nothing substantially has been released to prove J. M. Barrie was a pedophile.

On a side note, since Michael Jackson has died a lot of people have been feeling really bad about mourning him since no one is sure if he really molested children or not. I always bring it back to these two authors and lots of other public figures who have done inappropriate things with children. If you're going to judge Michael Jackson you might as well turn the TV off, never read, or pretty much just kill yourself. Michael Jackson (if he did it) was not the first and will not be the last. You have probably enjoyed the work of pedophiles. I'm not saying it's right to praise a pedophile but if we're going to start pointing fingers let's point fingers at everyone who has been accused.

Like Alice In Wonderland, Peter Pan has also been used in trauma based mind control. Both books and movies revolve around the theme of escapism (disassociation).

Like J. M. Barrie, Lewis Carroll will get his place in the sun, courtesy of Hollywood, when none other than Marilyn Manson plays him in Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll. Marilyn's ex-girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood will play "Alice's alter-ego" in the film. You may remember Evan and Manson's relationship caused controversy when he started dating her when she was just 19 (legal, but still). Alice will be played by Lily Cole (check out POM's stuff on her).

Marilyn Manson's interest in Lewis Carroll, and Alice In Wonderland in general, spilled over into his album Eat Me Drink Me.
The first single from Eat Me Drink me was "Heart Shaped Glasses". The music video features Evan Rachel Ross who wears heart shaped glasses inspired by the Stanley Kubrick film Lolita.
I have covered Kubrick's films Eyes Wide Shut and A Clockwork Orange in the past. The film Lolita is an adaptation of the novel Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Vladimir, like Manson, was inspired by Lewis Carroll and even went on to be the first to translate Alice In Wonderland in Russia.

The book is about the middle aged Humbert Humbert who is sexually involved with 12 year old Dolores Haze. Though Nobokov says the book does not advocate pedophilia, the reactions to the book gives an interesting glimpse on social conditioning. Novelist Robertson Davies says the theme of Lolita is "not the corruption of an innocent child by a cunning adult, but the exploitation of a weak adult by a corrupt child". For the people that have red the book and seen the film let's examine Dolores' corruption of poor Humbert Humbert.

Humbert arrives in the story when he tries to rent a room from Dolores' mother. He is not interested in the place until he goes outside to see Dolores half naked in the backyard. This section of the story is there to show you how Dolores lured him in with her sexuality. Eventually Dolores' mother sends her out of town to school. During thiss time Humbert marries Dolores' mother. One day Dolores' mother finds Humbert's diary with his explicit fantasies about her 12 year old daughter (14 in the film). She then runs frantically outside, gets hit by a car, and dies. Humbert takes it upon himself to take Dolores out of school and starts a new life with him. He keeps her locked in the house and she's forbidden most outside relationship until she one day escapes during a hospital visit. I don't know about you but that sounds like a young girl who was taken advantage of my a perverted middle aged man. Whether she was "sexy" (how a 12 year old girl is sexy is beyond me) or flirty is beyond the point. She was still 12 years old.

The impact of Lolita has been large. The term lolita has entered into pop culture mythology as a word to describe a sexually inticing underage girl. Both Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus were described as lolitas during their highly publicized scandals.

Britney Spears caused controversy when she posed for this sexually provocative photo in 1999 when she was just 17 years old. In true Lolita fashion her handlers have often told the media that the concept for her controversial "...Baby One More Time" video was all her idea. Again, why didn't anyone say no? She was 16 years old. Clearly they smelt the sweet smell of money.

They kicked it up a notch with Miley Cyrus as she was only 15 years old. Both were products of good ol Disney. The photos were 10 years apart. Miley is definitely the Britney of this generation.

So how far have we really come? Hard Candy has been marketed as a film that divides audiences between a sexual predator and a girl out for revenge. Are we still divided on the nature of pedophilia? Do you still look for reasons to blame the victim? Yes, the film Hard Candy explores negative aspect of that particular victimized character, but I still find it odd that we can't admit the crimes of sexual predators before we find flaws in the victim. If they're both wrong why not say it? Why are we still divided?

"I am every little girl you ever watched. Touched. Hurt. Screwed. Killed."
