    Well it's definitely not an original idea, was surprised to see them cover it in South Park though. Also that film... Starry Eyes - is that right Luka? - has similar themes. Arguably Neon Demon too, wonder who first came up with the idea.

    I'd love to see someone trace the history of the idea and it's dissemination

    It all traces back to the worship of Baal

    Ah no sorry I wasn't clear, I know that the idea of the sacrifice who is first feted and treated as a king but finally killed goes back to time immemorial - I'm pretty sure that it took place in Ancient Britain, the Middle East and also in Inca or Aztec culture too. But what I'm specifically interested in here is who first suggested the parallel between that film stars (or whatever) who are similarly feted and then destroyed - and when did it change from being a metaphor describing their function to a conspiracy theory with people believing it's actually literally true.

    It's a piece of writing. About the JFK assassination. I'm at work but I'll see if I can find it

    Totally mad shit. I saw it in a book called Apocalypse Culture years ago in the depths of my conspiracy research

    You don't need to subscribe to the idea that this is planned and executed by people in accordance with ritual the ritual could be inherent in the fabric of things. An archetypal patterns that recurs throughout time with different actors.

    Iain Sinclair draws on this stuff a fair bit specially his Hawksmoor/Jack the Ripper riffs

    "Never allow anyone the luxury of assuming that because the dead and deadening scenery of the American city-of-dreadful-night is so utterly devoid of mystery, so thoroughly flat-footed, sterile and infantile, so burdened with the illusory gloss of "baseball-hot dogs-apple-pie-and-Chevrolet" that it is somehow outside the psycho-sexual domain."

    nefertiti - a celeb only due the survival of her image directly through this very artefact. i recall the initial performance attempt to 3d scan the object, it seems that was bogus, and it seems this guy's approach was more productive https://cosmowenman.com/ - wrestling the babylonians using rank and contacts and the system and legalese and being "professional",

    e.g. in this correspondence the babylonians reveal their assumptions and entitlement about their rights to exploitation of the shining one https://cosmowenman.files.wordpress....ess-effort.pdf
