    I suppose that churches never were able to monopolise music the way that they dominated other forms of creative expression - the visual arts for instance

    This is a symbol of duality and unity, the two forces equal and balanced in energised opposition. /\ like so.
    Again a Masonic, engineering principle as well as a spiritual cosmic principle.

    There's a Steven Seagal film where he goes up against a Jamaican gang and that one was sampled in a bunch of jungle tunes too.

    What's special about the voodoo gang in predator two is how they don't sound even remotely Jamacian.

    I love the bit where they pull up in the zebra print car with fairy lights in it and an actual cloud of weed smoke. It's like some pisstake from GTA or something.

    The lighting and the colours there are very interesting. A lot like ghostbusters I reckon. Some kind of 80s pastiche of noir? Extremely theatrical not naturalistic.

    Sufi is one of those people who have had an interesting life. To me those people feel like a completely alien species. It's an experience so far removed from my own. They make me feel a bit threatened, defensive, insecure.

    probably churches weren't always like dour and dutiful, i suppose back in the day people must have loved it, came from miles around to catch the latest doctrines
    that all changed in the recent times - pact century or two, before that it must have been like visiting disneyland, or the most epic dj set

    but all in slow motion - a visiting superstar preacher every decade or 2, new doctrines every couple of centuries and then it takes a month or two for the news to reach from avignon or constantinople anyway

    Ever since I went to Winchester I've been fascinated by the spread of Christianity. A time when you could just wAnder off to a completely foreign country and convert it singlehandedly.

    i just was lucky enough to travel about when i was less tied down, not so much for the last few years though. mind you i think travel is like lsd in that it can fix those pre-existing tendencies and prejudices, did for me i reckon
