Satanists Are Metaphysical Toddlers

Satanists: What the hell is wrong with you guys?

The thing is, with Satan worship there is an implicit acceptance of the Judeo-Christian mythology1. There's God the creator of all things, and then there's Lucifer -Satan, Beelzebub, Old Nick, Scratch, Celine Dionne, what have you- a lesser being who attempts to rebel, and is smacked down handily. Game over, right? So my question, THE QUESTION is: Why would you take the side of the loser?2 I appreciate a good underdog story and all, but come on! At least an underdog is participating in a contest in which the outcome is still unknown. And when you look at the benefits of choosing that side, you get, what, 60 years or so of the high life and eternity in agony? That's what you choose? Seriously? I'm beginning to question your decision making abilities. What next? Smoking a Cuban cigar at the premium gas pump while you top off your Hummer? Honestly, I've met two-year-olds with more subtle cognitive capabilities.

I could understand if you were just an atheist, rejecting the dominant metaphysical ideology's impact on modern society; or better yet, some chaos-worshiping pagan. That would be better. First off, the being you worship would get a promotion from failed ancillary metaphysical patsy to full on god! Also, your diety could have a totally different name like 3aksdfjhweubUHFhka The Unspeakable Creeping Horror of the Void or Ralph. And instead of using an upside-down cross (or St. Peter's Cross3) you could have a totally new and different icon. Nothing derivative. Like a sword that's got a dragon wrapped around it with bees coming out of its eyes or a cog or like a fire with a skull in it. Something Metal, you get the picture.

So there you have it.

All hail Ralph, Harbinger of the Candied Apocalypse!

1 - I owe a big debt to Sean for many of the ideas expressed in this blog. Since we're twins, though, I'm pretty sure they still count as original. What with the psychic twin link thingy and all.
2 - Huh, I wonder if a lot of Neo-Nazis are Satanists. Food for thought. Or not. Whatever.
3 - This is perhaps the most lame symbol Satanists have ever used. The symbol of the first Pope. You know, Jesus's main homie. At least do a little research jerkwads.

Have you ever thought, "Hey! I love Don's crazy blog, but I wish I could have it all in one place, portable and weightless at the same time?" Well, who hasn't honestly?

Look to the right, just below the Frodo Lives T-Shirt you've totally been meaning to buy.

Yes, today is your lucky day. There it is: O'Keefe's Briefs Year One*. Click the cover image to download it, and it's yours. It's that easy.

You are very welcome.

*It's an .epub so it won't work on a Kindle. If I have time I'll look into that. Also I'm pretty sure I boned the coding for the cover, but the words are all good. I know it works in Stanza, Adobe Digital Editions, and on a Nook. If you have and use a different device let me know if it's working.

Year Two will be out sometime this fall.

What I've Been Up To: WHY BRAJJJJJE IFF>

So, it's been a few months since my last post, and I'm sure you're wondering where all my crazy words have been.

I've been directing my energies in a number of new if not exciting directions. I made an embarrassing blog for my daughter here. She'll spend years in therapy for that one!

Also, I've been teaching myself to use GIMP - primarily for fark.com photoshop contests. But hey it's a skill right?

Here are a few of my favorites:







This one I'm proud of because it turned out exactly as I'd imagined.





And this is a photoshop I did for the heck of it, no contest involved. I wanted to jump on the bandwagon for the birth of a new meme.




To see my whole sloppy oeuvre, click here. Be careful, Paris Hilton's crotch is in there somewhere.

Finally, I wrote a pretty fun whargggbl about Marriage Equality (Pro) in a note on Facebook. So there you go. I am however working on a new post, so you've got that to look forward to. In the meantime, pop by Fark.com's photoshop contests and vote for DonWrite. That's me, and yes, I'm whoring for votes, and further, no, I have no shame.
