    • The Second Apocalypse

Because I'm clearly less inventive (read dumber) than last year:

Quote from: Madness
We have paraded through the streets, we have invaded temples - spent weeks and months storing energy for this day of personal ritual. Those persons who measure their lives in the monetary bumps they snort from consumer culture laugh as gods while the world bows in orthodoxy.

Merry Christmas,
Happy Constitution Day,
Malkh,
Quaid-e-Azam,
Takanakuy,
Happy Kwanzaa,
and Happy Hanukkah...

Cheers all. Celebrate life :D!

Quote from: Curethan
Where did I put that TSA christmas poem...
aha
All credit to Sil-Inchor from the 3seas forum

Twas the Night Before the Second Apocalypse.

Twas just after the womb-plague
And all through the manse
Not a Nonman was stirring
Not even their prince.
The chorae were hung
By the chimney with care
In hopes that the Carapace
Soon would be there.

The sranc were all nestled
Up snug in their beds
Visions of obscenity
Dancing in their heads
When up on Earwa
There arose such a clatter
The violent arrival
Of Mans Darkest Hour

Away to the windows
The Mandate did fly
They threw open the shutters
Light poured from their eyes
And what did their dream-blearied orbs
There perceive
But a towering storm shouting
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
With a nimil sarcophagus
So shiny and dread
They knew that slain Lokung
Was no longer Dead.

More rapid than eagles
The Consult they came
And He bellowed and gibbered
And screamed out their names

ON SKAFRA, ON GLORTMUND, ON HALGYS AND AURAX
ON BLODMYR, ON THREKLA, ON LYRNYR AND AURANG

TO THE NAIL HIGH IN HEAVEN
TO THE GODS THERE OUTSIDE
ON WRACU, ON BASHRAG, TO RUIN WE RIDE

So up to the skies
His legions they flew
Man-Traitors and skin-spies
The last Inchoroi, too

The Mandate, despairing
Could not stay aloof
They burned in the fires
Of the great Mog-Pharau

The Men of the Three Seas
Were soon overthrown
Their hearthstones all cracked
And their great kings dethroned
The Shriah was headless
The Emperor dead.
Twas the Second Apocalypse
The prophets all said

But remember, dear children
That though the No-God would fell us
If things really turn ugly
We can all trust in Kellhus
The Existential Scream
Weaponizing the Warrior Pose - Declare War Inwardly
carnificibus: multus sanguis fluit
Die Better

Happy whatever folks:)

I can only mention that we(Norwegians) broke the record once again. This year we spent a whooping 50 billion on gifts.
That is 300 billion dollars. We are only 5 million brains in this country, so that is fucking embarrassing.

Focus on the good intentions out there, if you find any:)

Can't believe I forgot Festivus.

Mmm... Airing of Grievances.

Lol - I think your conversion is wrong or written incorrectly?

Either way... wow. I truly believe Christmas really is the pin of commercial society.

Here's a comment I made on a friend's sharing of one of those "Black Friday" videos a few weeks back (you know, what with the gripping, and the pushing, and the hitting, and the tearing):

Quote from: Madness
Sex, wine, drugs, and transcendence seemed more fun... But these people are also coerced and manipulated in the extreme in order to facilitate these kinds of happenings at all. Until a country like China or a conglomerate bloc takes the Mantle of Purchasing Power, the world economy rests sorely on their brave, ignorant shoulders. Should they ever stop believing, Christmas and Black Friday wouldn't happen, and cheap, consumer goods wouldn't make the wheels turn. If true, these fucks are the most faithful ;). Really though, I want to see what the lines to pay are like... turn cheek and compliment the woman in front of you on mowing down an old man for a blender?

Well. summer solstice here too.  But wishing safe and happy family times to all.

Happy Summer Solstice :)).

You are right about that:)

My head gets a bit cloudy when I face such numbers

"A woman spent all Christmas Day in a telephone box without ringing anyone. If someone comes to phone, she leaves the box, then resumes her place afterwards. No one calls her either, but from a window in the street, someone watched her all day, no doubt since they had nothing better to do. The Christmas syndrome."

Great quote, james.

Happy New Years, Second Apocalypse.

May 2014 be the year of The Unholy Consult.

Lol - I actually dreamed about editing what I'd written to change "Happy New Years" to "Happy Full-Rotation Around the Sun" ;).

But rectified.

"Happy Full-Rotation Around the Sun"

That's a lot to pack into one day.

How about "Happy random demarcation of the continuous collapse of probability fields that occur in cyclic patterns within our local mass energy distribution in which we have invested shared meaning!".
