CONSTANTINE w/ENTANGLED IN ALGIERS



And thus, by the express appointment of the same God
two roots of blessing, the Roman Empire
 and the doctrine of Christian piety
 sprang up together for the benefit of men

THE CON



I don't care about you,
I just want your vote.

Donald Trump


Resentment politics - flavour of the month
Not requiring any creativity, ideas, any real effort 
easy peasy ... welcome to

MAGA NORTH? 
Nope - won't work. Well maybe - IF.
You see, Trudeau and Trump have to be on the same ticket. 
Both vile, disgusting demagogues.
Yes. THAT could work.

(MAGA being something that almost all Canadians want no part of, 
so why not spin it in Justin's direction?)


It’s a better sell AND 
it’s a no brainer hocus pocus slam dunk con. 
Pin the tail on the donkey. Simple and stupid.
Trump & Trudeau - both narcissist wannabe dictators.  
Lock him up! The perfect distraction
and half the country is on board.
Just one problem - it's a scam.
A uniquely Canadian snow job.



I mean ok, a brilliant one
actually? Perfection. Maga-megalomaniac
Justin has to go!

Hook, line & sinker.

ANIMAL FARM 24




all animals are equal
but some animals are more equal than others

volume up . 1080p

optimized for night vision


Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. 
He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, 
He is too weak to pull the plough, 
he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits.
 
Yet he is lord of all the animals.
 
He sets them to work, 
he gives back to them the bare minimum 
that will prevent them from starving, 
and the rest he keeps for himself.

VINTERFIN (w/NorthWind)




when the snow-covered forest lies motionless 
beneath the faintly darkening sky

it is completely still 

if it then begins to snow and the air fills with snowflakes 
it is still completely silent - but the silence is different 
it seems to grow denser, more concentrated
 
and that sound, which is no sound, only a nuance of the nothing 
is a kind of intensifying or deepening sonic expression 
of winter
