Oh this is
wonderful. This is one of the most beautiful things
that has ever happened to a realist. Is that what
we're called now? The non-believers? I think
that's our new monkier. Either way, this shit is so
glorious it makes me want to believe in Jesus so
I can praise him. Hell, this is like Jesus coming
back and saying: "God was actually Judas, sorry."
You were adopted.
It wasn't your baby. It IS your baby. You're an
You know the
people who have been breaking down the last 24 hours,
right? The ones that are so serious about it a tiny
part of me is actually concerned for their safety.
Reading these message boards are unbelieveable. People
are losing their SHIT.
"I WILL NEVER BE A LIBRA!!!"
"I WAS A PERFECT CANCER! Now I'm a
GEMINI!!! FUCK THAT BULLSHIT." "So Suddenly
I am a Libra? What a joke." Oh THAT'S a joke
to you? That it changed? Does it ever occur to any of
the people losing their minds right now that you based
your personality traits...
FUCKING LIGHTS IN THE SKY?
If you haven't
heard yet some astronomers have figured out that we've
been off on the earth's alignment and, well, oops -
everyone is a different sign. Heh. I'm still laughing.
Because this conversation has ACTUALLY happened
to me when debating the people that put soooooooo much
stock into astrology. I said, damn near quoting
here: "What if you found out at 30 that you were a
different sign? That you were actually born on a
different day or you were reading the wrong chart this
entire time?" And oh the defenses that would hurl back
at me: "Then my traits would be different." Or my
favorite excuse: rising. Leo RISING. Gemini
RISING. Bullshit RISING.
A long time ago,
people ignorant to what the hell was in the sky wrote
a bunch of goofy shit and it has been read, reread,
written and rewritten for thousands of years. If you
give a group of people one horoscope and
TELL them it is their sign? A little bit
will ALWAYS apply. Some people have the traits of
their sign, some people don't. At all. It's
...but to the
people that make a living off this? WHEW. They are
scurrying, man. They are desperately graspin' at how
to spin this shit into keeping sheep on the TEET of
Astrology. Discounting this new information or jumping
in with two feet and hoping everyone else joins. But
those that actually believed are in complete denial.
I mean, serious, serious denial. Of course
I immediately thought of Hair. Ha.
I guess making fun of these peeps is a little
arrogant, 'cause my motto has always been "I don't
know." - but when ideas and concepts are
soooooooooooooo man-made, it's hard to not cast some
judgment. Astrology is such an obvious human
psychological need for order and control.
I wonder if at any point in human evolution, the
majority of the people will stop caring SO much
about the order of things, and just live and be happy?
I think about the things I've gone through the
past 10 years and my mind reels at the amount of work
it would've taken to fit it all into some religion. I
guess in a way that's what I'm doing with "The
Journey"... making all the events fit into a
story-format, but it's for fun. It's cause it's
entertaining to read. I know damn well that there
are no Journey Gods with sceptors, I just like
numbering stuff and pointing out the coincidences.
FUN. For entertainment purposes only.
OK, I'm gonna get
back to editing The Journey documentary (trying
desperately to make it more fun than it actually is -
ha) and hopefully the astrology-followers of the world
can find a way to reconnect with their lives even
though everything they thought was wrong. It is
actually a bit unfortunate come to think of
