Fun with Disassociation and religion. from StrangeEden's blog

Since I was a young teenager I liked the idea of playing with religious philosophy and (science) fiction. I was (am) the weird kid who thinks cults are neat and maybe I might like to consider the idea of "shakin' it up" a little bit by adding my own twist to the world of worship. Anyway yeah... I think about weird shit too often, and now I'm gonna share some of it with you.
--------------
One of the weird things is the David Bowie Oracle. I don't really take part in the practice as often as I used to (because I rarely need to care about how my day goes) but I used to start every day by collecting up all of the David Bowie music in my possession, putting it on whatever player device I had that could shuffle and letting the first three songs I heard dictate my day. I picked it up in my early 20's when you could have three disk changer boomboxes... my first three CDs were ziggy Star dust, the labyrinth soundtrack, and  hunky dory. Those were strange, dark times.

Road Bananas.....
I have been taking photographs of random discarded bananas on roads and side walks for the better part of 20 years. I don't really know why I do it but it's something that I have done since I got my first digital camera. Any time I see one I stop what I am doing and take a photo. It's become an omen of chaotic adventure with a side of slapstick. It does not matter what shape the banana is in, black empty husk on the sidewalk, or unviolated and forgotten in a parking lot, I stop what I am doing, admire it's absurdity, and document the blessed event with a photograph.

Dead Birds and misadventure...
During highschool I often walked 2 to 3 miles at a time in order to meet up with friends with easier going house holds for the having of adventure and doing of havoc. During these walks (in the warmer months) I would count the number of dead birds I passed along the way (because I was a morbid child). Over time I came to believe my own idea that the amount of dead birds was an omen of the level of adventure and my ability not to get caught doing it. The more dead birds, the more likely I won't get caught doing whatever it is I knew I probably shouldn't be doing. If I saw zero or only one or two I would know to dial it back a little bit and probably not try to hitch hike to the mall.  The superstition grew in complexity that took type of bird and condition of corpse into account. When I started driving I added the idea that killing a bird was a terrible sign and if it was a crow you were completely fuckin' boned. I did mention that I was a weird little fucker right?

Labyrinth was one of those childhood films that screamed in my face "GET OFF YOUR ASS AND MAKE ART YA DUMB BITCH!!!" that's pretty much the only kinda shit I pay attention to.
