    Signs you might be in a cult - and is that a bad thing?

    A Tweet Thread by Izabella Kaminska @izakaminska

    Cults by and large are naturally occurring phenomena. Like it or not we are all probably in some kind of cult. But to ensure you are not taken advantage of it’s important to know your cult.Image

    View from a Treehouse: Vanuatu singer

    It's 2020, and still the cultural touch of the rest of the world on our lives seems minimal. Is this one another hodgepodge if appropriation and quaint outback notions, is this just the kind of Bob Marleyish knockoff we'll accept back home, or is this a voice among others we need (or just want) to hear? And why does 3rd World music always have a message? Blur did a anti-culture song called "Whoo Hoo" ( or actually Song #5 I think). They didn't particularly care that the oceans are rising. What's the anti-musicbiz or apathy trend in the South Pacific? What do teenagers think, play, do?

    How long's your earth footprint?

    New ways to express worn out topics.

    It's not just us - how long will our splash keep rippling?


    Being Kevin Bacon (which one?)

    Never been nominated for an Oscar, seems like an easy Cinderella story career except for choices and droughts we're less than aware of. Not whiny, not a Hollywood enfant terrible, just a decent actor with a rather diverse set of performances.


    Kruschev revisited

    The opening summary of Stalin & WWII worth the price of admission


    Shere Hite climax: clit legacy left behind

    Had she focused on the mind, maybe she'd have been a revered psychologist using relatively traditional scholarly methods. Or maybe not. Still, "different strokes for different folks" - a rule of thumb that's easy to follow.


    Spy Grrrl Diana Rigg

    Not to mention The Hospital and The Great Muppet Caper.

    But sporting that sleek spy suit... even Game of Thrones could never top that. Though the Bond role came close.

    You will be Avenged.


    Lou Brock, the base stealer

    In a sport many consider dull, Lou kept it lively, stealing even when way ahead. On a team of superstars, he and Bob Gibson stood out. Also a symbol of back when St Louis was great, when Midwest companies and sports teams could compete with the coasts, playing in that new stadium with the optimistic view of the Arch - before Ferguson and urban rot set in. I can still remember his baseball card - perhaps 3-4 memorable out of a huge box. Also a reminder how many decades go by after a sports star means something, how filling the time productively post-career is essential.

    Electric Warlock: Glam icon Marc Bolan remembered

    Was highly stirring and fruit for imagination to a young lad in the South - tuning in on King Biscuit Flower Hour late every Sunday night beamed from London? Choice. Oddly these Glam dudes were firing back with "All the Way to Memphis" - you talking to me? Get it on, bang a gong... I'll be that Jeepster too.


    On Sex with Demons

    Someone has to take this discussion out of the clouds and astral planes and bring it back to (ir)reality.

    The part about the Devil not able to make his own semen was the clincher - one of those "niche business opportunities" that screams out to you (or at least me): Buy low, sell high!

    Anyway, read 'em and freak.
