The Devil Went Down in Vancouver

devil-penis-statue-vancouver1-800x600

According to Global News, the city removed the statue but not before giving locals a good trolling.  The statue wasn’t commissioned by the city and calls went flooding in once passersby got a good eye full of all its phallic glory.  The vacant pedestal was ripe for the picking after the Columbus Statue was moved to Hastings Park a decade ago, satellite photos show the pedestal was empty as recently as 2012.

You would think the city would take better care, the Graffiti present and the fact that the statue went up undetected is a good indication of negligence.  Tax Dollars at work!

Whomever is responsible (artist or activist alike) it’s giggle worthy but seems like a waste of artistic talent.  If no one claims the thing, it will be destroyed or sold at auction (without artist credits).  It may very well be a silent nod to The Satanic Temple‘s efforts in challenging the 10 Commandments Monument  in Oklahoma City.

Vancouver parents say, “It sends a bad message.  He’s not wearing a condom...”

The petition, started by Darryl Greer of Vancouver, says the city has a long history of investing in public art. For example, a porcelain dog cost the city $100,000.  “Just as some were offended by the price tag and substance of the porcelain dog, others may have been offended at the sight of Lucifer’s Plastic Love Pump, but none would be offended at its price tag,” reads the petition, which points out the Satan statue cost the city nothing. “Art is in the eye of the beholder and nothing more.”

Something Real

“Go! Do! Go do something ‘REAL’!!!”

  You see this sentiment populated by Artists, Counter-Culturalists, Statists, and Satanists.  What does it mean?  Some ‘Satanists’ fancy themselves Activists, however at closer examination they appear to be holding up the Nomian with two hands.  It’s un-relatable to me but it’s not from a lack of trying.  I do make an effort to see things from their point of view.  I take a step out of my own shoes and make an attempt to walk in theirs.  The problem isn’t the shoes; it’s the path they walk on.

Nomos, is “Rule or Law”, to be Anti-Nomian (fr. Greek Anti/Nomos) is to be heterodox (fr. Greek heterodoxos) is to be other; Other than upholding the cultivation of these Orthodox rules of engagement.  These ‘Activists’ seem to be working stead-fast and strong to maintain the illusion and I’m supposed to accept this as real?

I suppose, if Gay Marriage is widely accepted, weed is de-criminalized or that the U.S. Constitution is regarded as something more than a historical artifact, this would be considered a WIN?  How does this affect my life in any manner?  How does this manifest anything ‘REAL’ for me?  “We the people” never did anything for me.

You know what’s real to me?  That fact that I’m aging and can’t do jack shit about it.  That, in the 40 years I’ve been alive; it’s the same sad story.  Nothing new, nothing old, nothing blue, nothing bold!  There’s always some asshat telling you what you should be doing, what you should consider valuable and if you don’t agree with them, co-sign their bogus ideas then you’re not doing shit.

For me there’s a vast difference between living and making a life.  If the entire idealist trite doesn’t get me off, then maybe I’m too busy living.  All I can do is smile and nod when these oh so conflicted people with their societal struggles pass by.  Like I’m supposed to give a rat’s ass because some druggie can’t get a job because he’s dysfunctional.  It’s somehow the system, and not the behavior he feeds called Addiction.  I’m also supposed to accept that Addiction is a ‘disease’ like Leukemia and he can’t do anything about it because there’s an ‘Addiction gene’, and it’s not just his inability to manage his compulsions.  Right, right, while I’m at it, I should put on my stupid-cap too.  I’m also supposed to accept that it’s all Exoteric and doesn’t have shit to do with the Jihad going on in his body.  I’m pretty sure the likes of Hitler would shove is ass in a toaster and not even bat an eyelash at it.  What a useless fucking creature.  But hey, he’s doing ‘Real World Shit’, he’s clicking buttons on Facebook, he’s pinning a badge to his chest and he’s pointing the finger.

He’s got the nerve to point that dirty thing at me, telling me I should be waiving a flag for the meek that can’t manifest what they want.  That I should do it for them.  Fuck him and fuck you, if you agree with him!  My Real World shit stares me down every day from a mirror.  Every wrinkle, scar and memory that tells me that that I know what’s real, what matters to me and there’s no other than that can tell me any different.
