Storming the Gates

The god of the most blessed ecstasy and the most enraptured love. But he was also the persecuted god, the suffering and dying god, and all whom he loved, all who attended him, had to share his tragic fate -- Walter F. Otto.

Considering the previous Dionysus post, where we found Jim Morrison of The DOORS resonating Dionysus/Jesus, and also the desire of Dionysus to enter the gates of Hades but requiring a guide (Prosymnos, who desired a sexual reward)

Leads us naturally to the Black Gate of More Doors, AKA Hades... and Frodo Baggins, who also desired to enter its gates, but "does not know the way". Much like Dionysus, he requires a guide. As Boromir wisely states:

"One does not simply walk into Mordor"

A coalition of stalwart heroes is formed to help guide him on his path - "the Fellowship of the Ring". One by one, every hero fails in his duty, and finally Frodo is left with his one true guide to Hades... Gollum. The one who openly desires that which he most desires to destroy.

The fact that Gollum is "a creature not so very different from Hobbits" hides the clue. Gollum is Frodo's Alter Ego, his Dark Side. Gollum knows the way to Mordor because he's been there! If Gollum is the guide to Dionysus resonator Frodo, then perhaps that makes him Prosymnos. Makes me wonder just what kind of "ring" Gollum thought was so precious... Is Mordor a gay bar? The kind in a dark alley with no markings on the door? No wonder D needed a guide!

As we have already determined in previous Gosporn posts, Jesus is serving major Dionysus symbolism, and we have supposed that perhaps Jesus was a Lotus Eater - a man who, much like Joseph Smith, initiated others into an entheogenic plant fueled tradition that the Greeks called the Dionysian Mysteries, itself part of a much older tradition.

The Fly Agaric mushroom trip/stargate to enlightenment is a religious tradition as ancient as it gets, and this magic mushroom is probably the worst kept secret of the secret societies - the real "Rocket Fuel". I have no doubt that the ritual imbibing of entheogens (Google wants to call this "enthronement") is at the heart of the sacred initiations of ALL the secret sects, including the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, and most especially the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

And where do these entheogenic fueled trips always land? On Planet Queer - just like Dionysus!!

As we have already noticed, the Secret Gospel of Mark hints at homosexual shenanigans, and how synchy that NYC's New St. Mark's Baths became an infamous lair of homosexual activity in the '70's.

"It was described as a sex factory with men walking floor to floor. Music was played on the first floor common areas but on the top three floors were cubicles where no music was permitted, so that the only sound would be men having sex."

Music indeed. The proprietor, Bruce Mailman, later opened the Saint nightclub, another notorious venue with equally Dionysian/Catholic synchs. (Bruce died on 6/11/94 of AIDS related illness, for those with a numerological bent).

Gay bathhouse has a nice double H synch, and now that I look at it, batHHouse is like bat House, or Bat Cave - the underground lair of Bruce Wayne or his alter ego: Batman, AKA Hades. Maybe the Postman really does always ring twice.


On my "European Tour" in the early '90's, my traveling companion and I relied extensively on gay guidebooks to European cities, such as Damron's, Spartacus, etc. These guides were helpful all over Europe, but in relatively homophobic cities like Lisbon, they became essential. I have a wonderful memory of Ralph and I, standing in the middle of this essentially Middle Ages city, pondering our gay guide, trying to make sense of the labyrinthine streets, when out pops a handsome Portuguese, noting our confusion. He became our guide that night, to a wonderful, underground world of gay speakeasies and venues, and we never would have found them but for him. Thanks, P.

Et Tu, Dionysus, Part Two

"When Hephaestus bound Hera to a magical chair, Dionysus got him drunk and brought him back to Olympus after he had passed out. For this act, he was made one of the twelve Olympians."

Here we have Spock, AKA Vulcan/Hephaestus, "drunk" from the spores of the planet Omicron Ceti III. Captain Kirk eventually rescues Spock (returning him to "Olympus"), so it makes me wonder if Tiberius Kirk isn't resonating sump'n sump'n Dionysus? Dionysus is always shown carrying his pine cone tipped thyrus, or fennel, wand (translation: always holding/playing his organ of reproduction), so interesting that Chris PINE played the most recent incarnation of Captain Kirk.

John Belushi is probably the most overt Dionysus resonating archetype from Saturday Night Live, narrowly winning out over Chevy Chase and Michael Myers. In 1978's National Lampoon's Animal House, he becomes "Bluto" (Blue toe, or maybe blue tow, as in the blue tug boat) - the patron saint of the toga party, presiding over a movie that is essentially a Dionysian coming of age/initiation ritual for Thomas Hulce - Pinto.

My own fraternity had a rather wonderful Dionysian initiation ritual: the first house kegger of the year always culminated in the upper classmen throwing the freshmen into "frosh pond" - a drunken baptism. The Kappa Sigs had a famous drinking song, another curious tradition:

"Here's to (brother's name) he's true blue, he's an asshole through and through. So may he find, at the bottom of his glass, a solid gold nugget and a piece of ass! Now drink!"

Remember that piece of ass part, because upcoming is the Dionysus myth with adult homo content.

Jim Morrison, of the Doors (door to Hades?) consciously evoked the archetype of Dionysus before his premature death due to excessive "wine". Morrison was "born again" via Valentine Kilmer, who resonates Valentine, the heart, and the gay God Eros. Val also played the "Dark Knight", that Lord of the Underworld.

When Dionysos goes to Hades to retrieve his mother, Semele, to bring her to Olympus, he meets Prosymnos on the way. According to Arthur Evans in his book The God of Ecstasy, Christian writer Clement of Alexandria reports:

Dionysos wanted to descend to Hades but did not know the way. A certain Prosymnos promised to show him for a price. The price was indecent but not for Dionysos. The price he asked of Dionysos was a sexual favor.

Upon his return from the underworld, Dionysos can’t locate Prosymnos because he has died and instead has sex with a wooden dildo made from the branch of a fig tree in order to pay his due to his guide.

So a gay man is the God of Ecstasy's guide to the Underworld??? It figures.


Light My Fire. The Doors.

Baiting the Master

Today, I was deep into a design on my drafting board and the creative juices were really flowing, and I look down, and I realize I have my hand in my pants... fondling my genitals? I've discovered I subconsciously do this when I'm alone and "in the moment" - focused on a creative endeavor. Which makes sense, given Cock = God = the Creative Impulse. I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed this, I mean, besides Salvador Dali?

The next step is what to do with the DNA. "Let's be clear about this. I have no intention of creating a cloned army of surrealist artists," said Dr Rieders, who sported a melting clock tie in honour of one of Dali's most famous images.

Pouring the Foundation

"The Deck" was finally completely demolished last weekend. The carpenter, wearing a blue "Sea Dru Nar" tank top and W (trident) emblazoned sneakers worked his ass off in the heat, but he got the the job done. He also poured the foundation for the supports for the new deck, and a fine job he did. Concrete is actually made from limestone - AKA recycled shellfish.

So pretty cool to find some concrete/crustacean synchs this week, starting with Anadae's link in the comments to the sub-lime DJ Lobsterdust!

Today Gods Amongst Men posted a Twins Redux featuring those Russian hotties Konstantin and Oleg - cavorting amongst the concrete ruins.

And also today, Bring a Trailer features a 1968 Fiat (King) Abarth 1300 - "perfected". Which is really no big deal, even considering the red and white paint job and the wink at Lucky 13. But check out the Abarth badge:

It's Alive!

On (good/black) Friday, July 31, google killed gosporn and also my user account, no explanation except a link to the User Agreement. I sent an email requesting clarification, and no reply until Sunday evening, when the blog was just as inexplicably restored. I have several theories, in order of ridiculousness:

  • The Madonna Youtube video posted on 7/29 (now removed!) violated some stupid copyright law.
  • The aliens who secretly control google feared I was dangerously close to exposing their agenda, but then figured out I have no idea what I'm actually talking about.
  • Jesus was mad at me for comparing him to Dionysus.
  • Dionysus AKA Jesus AKA the Joker decided to have some fun.
  • It was just a glitch.

I think I'll do a backup.
