Twenty-four reflections on Satan

So as you can tell, there aren't twenty-four reflections. I had written twenty-four thoughts (loose construction of the word "thought"), many of them, um, well, semi-sacrilegious if one were especially uptight about it all, and as I was giving one last look over, I pushed a combination of buttons that erased everything.


I called a friend who I thought might make me be able to resurrect the lost material, but he said he wasn't a miracle worker.

All of this is true. Steven Taylor, vouch for me, my friend.

I'll come back to these twenty-four thoughts another day. What you have here is a photo of what looks like to me to be Satan on a wolf's head. It's cropped from another photo that, when I looked at it very closely, clearly revealed a clear capture of the king of lies. I'll post that other photo soon.

Let me know what you think. Creepy, eh?

I mean, why can't I capture images of Jesus Christ? Or Mary? Or even Moses. Heck, I'd settle for David. Apparently he was quite the looker. I'd like to see an image of David. But I don't want Satan haunting my porch.

This is the original shot.

And below is the altered shot where I first saw Satan. You see him, right? A colleauge said simply, "No, I don't see Satan. I see a bat on a wolf, and the bat is wearing a Pilgrim hat."

Any suggestions about what to do?

Well, I don't know, but I've heard that the devil went down to Georgia cos' he was looking for a soul to steal. Have you been sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot? I'm just saying (or sayin').

If that was on our porch, I think it's time to move!

Suggestion: stop croppin yer photos?

What you don't know can't hurt you. So just go back to backmasking your old Zeppelin albums, mining for Satanic gold there.

Alternatively, look in places less personal to you. Like water stained highway overpasses, and scortch marks where the potato chips fried weird, into the shape of God or Satan. You know, the places where the rest of the world sees these things.

Isn't this the part in the movie where the idiot couple says, "surely that isn't blood dripping down our walls" or "surely those aren't faces of evil in the window/attic/basement" and STAYS in the house that everyone could see from the first five minutes was haunted/evil/possessed?

TK -- that might well have worked if you were in a 70s or 80s movie, before we had discovered that simple defect in the movie plots. For example, if you were simply in Amityville Horror, or Poltergeist, or even The Shining, you'd be fine. Just, leave.

However, nowadays you would leave the home, only to discover that the entire town had already gone berserko. So you're probably best just staying where you are, even with that wolf devil on the porch.

It's all true. All of it.
