The AC Institute has put up a page for the 'patacritical Interrogation Techniques Anthology Volume 3 book and Jonny Whiteside at my old paper the LA Weekly did a preview write up of In Advance of the Mayan Apocalypse, our first launch event Sunday night at the Echo Park Film Center.
Oswald means "divine strength." The diminutive form of the word is "os" or "Oz": denoting strength. The role which "Divine Strength" played in the Dealey "Goddess Rule" Killing of the King ritual should be given careful consideration. One should also note the significance of (Jack) Ruby's killing (destroying) of "Ozwald" in reference to the "Ruby Slippers" of The Wizard of Oz which one may deride as a fairy tale but which nevertheless symbolizes the immense power of "ruby light," otherwise known as the laser.

'patacritical interrogation? We're not sure yet either, but it seems to have something to do with an interaction between chrysolite and Green Soul crystal resulting in the Great 'patacritical Poison! Now that's a fish of a different color! I will simulate the enchantment and report further. Have I ever mentioned how much I love the internet?

Waking Quinn - a sort of absurdist trip through the bardos, and my favorite episode of Sealab 2021- is streaming at adultswim.com until Dec 18th. It loses something by not being stumbled across in the wee hours, on an actual TV, but it remains the ne plus ultra of fractured plotlessness - every time I watch it it seems like its being made up on the spot.
While your over there, All that Jazz is pretty out there too.
Signing off on this 'pITA 'pARTY 'pOSTER for the launch event at the EPFC a week from Sunday, although there remain a few loose ends and missing pieces from the puzzle. No doubt it'll all come togehter on the 16th. I'm looking into printing a few of these up as a highly collectable fine art limited edition. E me to reserve one.

Guess who painted this. Franz Kline that's who! Puppet in the Paintbox is from 1940, and - consciously or not - is the perfect embodiment of the breaking point of the depression-era WPA artists who were obliged to conform to the uplifting pictorialist conventions of Social Realism. Pretty soon Action Pinnochio was prancing, stringless - slashing and daubing his way to a brave new orthodoxy whose conventions, prohibitions, and sense of self-righteousness would dwarf those of the picturebook commies of the previous generation. That's what I'm talking about when I talk about Freedom!
