Who is the modern burning man? John Lennon was hot for a little while but now he is gone. Popular culture is so . . . pop. Here today, gone at lunch time. The endless parade of pop culture entertainers no longer holds my attention anymore. Hair today, bald tomorrow . . .
Beatle In, Beatle Out
Lennon himself tried to tell people exactly what the Beatles and pop culture were all about, but most people didn’t get it. JL was writing the book on being a rock star. There are detailed accounts of JL describing how he figured out how to move his body on stage to seduce his audience. Lennon said that for a brief moment the Beatles were more popular than Jesus, and they were. So what? One day you’re a big pop star, and the next day you’re nailed to your own record jacket.
WELCOME TO THE MACHINE: When it was the appropriate stopping place, Lennon the authentic artist said: “Now the Beatles are dead so just get over it.” Lennon had the integrity to evolve and the courage to move on with his artistic life but he was truly trapped by the same machine that he himself created.
John Lennon got shot in the back for being real. Welcome to the real world. The only blasphemy is to speak against the Holy Spirit. JL never spoke against the Holy Spirit or God. John Lennon was a saint trying to wake people up.
Going the Distance
Are you going the distance or are you a burning man culture consumer engaged in a pseudo-reality? Everybody has an image nowadays. There are ass models everywhere. I am trying to be a character model because that is what I needed when I was forming my young character. I want you to take charge of your life and become a person with fundamental skills. It is very important to be able to think for yourself.
The only thing that really interests me on television these days is true crime. True crime shows like Dateline are the original reality TV. I just leave my TV on the ID channel with the audio off and the closed captioning titles on.
The Canadians have put their totem pole back up in Victoria Park. Is this a sign of war with our unruly neighbors to the north? Do we need to build a wall to prevent the Canukians from inflating Palm Springs real estate prices? No, let them eat the bubble I say. Let’s form a mandate that all Canadians have to sell their desert second homes at today’s low prices. That way maybe I can afford to buy the luxurious villa I am currently renting.
