warning: possibly misguided rant on organised religion.. if you're sensitive to this kinda thing.. avoid this particular rant.. thank you :)
so.. here I am..
on GOOD FRIDAY
watching "Pretty in Pink" of all things.. on tv..
coz, hey.. it sounded funny at the time.. but, in actuality.. it's a fucken CRAP movie..
(not John Hughes' best film..)
so.. wot's the deal with Good Friday anywaze.. it's been almost 2000 years since the 1st..
and has it always been THIS slow?
the one day besides Christmas.. when all the pubs / clubs / any entertainment you could think of is closed..
(a few sneak in after midnight.. the crafty bastards..)
wot I funny.. is they never pinpoint the date..
it's the first full moon of April.. (or the last of March..)
the original date of the crucifixion? likely lost to the dust of time..
just coz those crazy Christians back in the Middle Ages could coincide it with the ancient pagan festivals of Spring rebirth..
good marketing practices tho'.. worked to convert the heathens ;)
and that whole easter resurrection thing?
I heard some funny things about that..
1. wacky delayed action voodoo style "narcolepsy" fungus stuff in the last supper meal.. y'know.. that shit that appears to stop ya heart.. and you appear dead for a few days..
2. it wuz all a big fake-out.. he just passed out on the cross.. and then "woke up" on Sunday.. (people didn't always die when they were crucified)
3. bad hangover on Friday, woke up on Sunday.. (and odd that Mary Magdelane wuz first to visit.. ya get wot I'm sayin'.. aaaye? AAAYE? :)
4. I had this funny idea.. that.. ok.. the whole death / resurrection wuz real.. but instead of just ascendin' and vanishin' to heaven.. he did an elvis.. ducked over to India.. just got really fat.. and ended up as Buddha..
5. or, the funniest one.. from our English teacher in 9th grade - it wuz aliens.. no shit, this dude claimed aliens came to Earth back 2000 years ago.. masqueraded this hairy dude as the son of god.. a miracle here, a miracle there.. and boom we have an organised religion..
wot it really boils down to?
good for the public holidays..
and perhaps this little ditty..
"do unto others, as you'd want others to do unto you"..
the rest is just mindless fluff to subjugate the masses..
cause violence, fundamentalist hatred..
and fuck with people's heads..
if ya gonna be religious..
stick to the basic's kiddies..
the rest is fluff.. ;)
so.. for this easter..
do wot'ever the hell ya wanna do..
but, just be cool to each other.. mmmkay?
coz.. that's wot matters..
