  • Children get sold two myths, Santa and Jesus. The motive for both lies is control. Most kids figure out Santa is a crock fairly early, just by watching the holes in the story. The holes in the Jesus story, are just as big, but not as clear, not right in your living room. Most kids are too afraid ever to challenge the Jesus myth with its eternal fire and intensely evil all-powerful god.

  • I am a huge fan of this band, but I did not expect this from them. Their music is so entrenched in fantasy and decadently liberal imagination, that I just didn’t see them ever bringing down the ‘reality hammer’. I think its really cool- the new album is a juxtaposition of fantasy and reality that is very hard to find. Awesome album I highly recommend it.
