Sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand
Supporters of Wikileaks have conducted a hacking campaign against VISA, Amazon and other corporations perceived as enemies. Their weapon is called LOIC, or Low-Orbit Ion Cannon. This is a very nerdy reference to the ion cannon that the rebel base on Hoth (Thoth) uses against the Imperial Fleet in The Empire Strikes Back - the film where Luke loses his hand. Considering all the Falcon/Horus symbolism in Star Wars, perhaps it should be called the Eye On Cannon, or the Aeon Cannon, as in Aeon of Horus (Millennium Falcon). I note you download the app from ‘Sourceforge Faggots’ and you have to UnZIP before you can use it. Sounds like either an episode from Naked Justice or a chapter from Crowley's The Book of the Law.
The TIME cover is pretty close to the poster for The People vs. Larry Flynt, starring Woody Harrelson. Some have noted that Wikileaks and Julian Assange aren’t necessarily what they appear, that perhaps TIME has carefully managed the meme from the start.
I’m currently reading Mark Twain’s ‘A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court’. It's fascinating that the Yank (or Wank) decides to blow up Merlin's Tower (WTC) and he does it by secretly placing charges within the structure, though he publicly puts on a great show of magic and incantations to wow the locals with his mad wizard skills. He relies upon a LIGHTNING ROD to light the fuse. Hmmm... a FLINT is also used to light a fuse, and I suppose faggots are always good for starting a fire. Besides, isn't homosex "the love that dare not say it's name"? I'd say the duct tape is torn off by now.
When our hero first appears in Camelot, he makes his name by predicting a solar eclipse, which happens to occur on the same day he is to be burned at the stake. He threatens to extinguish the sun for all time if he is not released, and well, the natives were properly impressed.
This event actually happened with Christopher Columbus, who used his foreknowledge of a lunar eclipse to terrify/pacify the disgruntled natives in 1504. I note that a lunar eclipse is forthcoming on 12/21/10, we shall see what the magicians have in store.
127 Hours until Orion Time?
The Syncsters have also brilliantly noted the hourglass theme running through the media at the moment, synching it with the witch’s hourglass in the Wizard of Oz. Like Luke, Dorothy also falls into a trap. It would seem that TIME is almost up for Dorothy. Where ARE those friends of Dorothy when she needs them?
