Cult of SIN Challenge: Update

IMG_5805On September 8, 2015 I posted THE CULT OF SIN CHALLENGE and by September 30th a package arrived!  Huzzah, at last I own my own copy!  I suppose I should eat crow, it appears the assumption is in fact TRUE, as if I didn’t know that?  Thing is, why should cult followers be ashamed of getting swept up in a cult of personality?  There’s a draw isn’t there?  Some of the anonymous users I’m in contact with have been following my content for years, some even dating back to the 90’s.  Is it my mind? Content? My body? A combination of these things?  Only they can tell you that.    When you express a culture, you cultivate a following. It’s just as simple as that. There’s no right or wrong to it.   If some get a little carried away it’s just the nature of the space.  The Internet is just the carrier.  Mind is the terrain.

I was once accused of “Collecting Bitches” and maybe that’s true to an extent.  I can’t really argue with it.  I mean, you’d have to be a Masochist to put up with me right?  Seeing that I’m so abusive, confrontational and relentless in my inquiries.  It’s apparent to me which of my following get personal gratification from our exchanges, which retreat (only to come back begging for more) and those among them that see what’s really at play.  It’s just a conscious nod of amusement.  I can sure be entertaining!  Cults of Personality have both pros and cons and somewhere in between, in the dark corners beyond is something so few dare to explore.

Speaking of perks, all I asked for was the film. To my surprise, I got (3) bonus items!  Upon removing them from the box, I thought:  What madness is this?  Low and behold, I received not one but two personal massagers (wink wink) and a hematite bracelet.  A Trinacria of Vanity.  I’d call it the full body package.  Good show Mr.!  If you frequent Occult, pagan and Satanic venues I’m sure you’ve run into him.  He describes himself as a former Marine & Luciferian, I’d just describe him as your average blue-collar, Harley riding guy you could easily bump into at your local watering hole.  Would you ban him from the bar for being a goon?  I doubt it.  People on the netz rarely have the same conviction.

Thanks for the goodies Chris, you rock in my book!  Our communication is all public, the lulz, the goofing around and we rarely take this shit that serious.  The Internetz is serious bidness’ they say!   Yeah, well fuck em’ if they don’t get the joke!

CULT of SIN: Challenge

I’m often told that my so-called “cult” of followers are so loyal and dedicated that I can get them to do just about anything I want upon request.  So let’s test that theory shall we?! BUY ME THIS FILM by 10/31/15, if I fail to receive it by then, this assumption is thereby FALSE.  I use ‘cult’ very tongue-in-cheek, always have but at the same time I’ve experienced a bit of that culty-weirdness when people imitate you, hang on your every word or treat you like their guru.    Ties in to my recent blog:  Cults of Personality:  Are there any perks?

So I’m curious to discover whether or not a stranger will purchase this film for me just solely based on following my cult of personality.

Why this film?  This year, I’ve chosen ‘Alice’ (technically, Mrs. Tredoni) from the 1978 film “Alice, Sweet Alice” for my Halloween Costume.   It’s one of the first slasher films I watched as a child and I’ve always wanted to construct the costume.  Netflix was streaming it for a while but it’s been removed from their library recently. I think it’s high time I attain by own copy!  I figure I can use the DVD case as a prop since most people may not be familiar with the character.    You can reach me by email: sales@the-poison-apple.com for more details for shipping, or use my contact form on my website: sinjones.com.

The film (directed by Alfred Sole) was out of print for a long time due to some boot-legging issues and was finally released again (and digitally remastered in 2007).  I find it an appropriate film due to its cult following.  There was some talk about a 2015 Remake but like most remakes, it would lose it’s original macabre especially if it’s taken out of a 1960’s setting,   I don’t know that I could bring myself to watch it, the original is a bit of nostalgia (given my Roman Catholic background).

If you’re interested in the film, you can watch it HERE.  It was previously released as “Communion, 1976”, there was a re-release in 1981 as “Holy Terror”, I just happened to be exposed to the 1978 version.  It has always received mixed reviews for holes in the plotline and seemingly missing elements such as what role did the 2-faced doll play?  Was it to insinuate that Alice had a split personality?  Was it widely known outside her own household that she owned these particular masks?  Was the original script intended to be a Ghost Story or Demon Possession?  Was Mr. Alphonso the catalyst for a Poltergeist? The role of Mrs. Tredoni as the actual killer always seemed like an after thought. There’s a lot of scenes that don’t make a whole lot of sense from a technical perspective.  The Catholicism element had always been thought to be a way to segment into deed of the Devil and Satanic Sacrifice but whatever ended up on the cutting room floor resulted in a totally different film.  That’s what kind of gives it its allure. It leaves much to the imagination.  Needless to say, I love this film.  At the very least, I have exposed you to it if it’s fallen under your radar.
