Hey folks! One thing y'all might not know about me is that I am a patron of a small handful of online "creatives" whom I believe somehow bring extra value of some sort to my life. One of those people is the Lone Animator, also known as Bluworm, a very talented Scandinavian stop motion animator and Lovecraft fan who enjoys bringing Lovecraft's creations (among others) to life with his fingers, wires and clay. The video below is his latest, and the first to feature my nom-de-guerre in the "Special Thanks To" credit sequence at the end. 

In the above film, Bluworm manages to convey so much in such a short amount of time, and with such economy of elements, that one can't help but be impressed. With nothing but a hopper full of raw materials, brought to life by his own hands, powered by nothing but his breath and prodigious imagination... he has created a world entire, a world of beauty, of danger, of fearsome beasts and hidden wisdom waiting to be discovered and applied, in the hopes of changing that world for the better. It really is nothing less than a classic in miniature! And I suspect y'all might enjoy it as much as I did, so I'm sharing it here... ENJOY!

Everyone should watch this excellent New York Times documentary, which was culled from thousands of hours of videos from protestors and police body cams, as well as archived audio, telling the story of the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Suffice it to say, America as a nation still has yet to begin the process of reckoning with exactly what happened on that fateful day.

Now, after the Mud Flood Theory failed to gain much traction in the cultural zeitgeist and the Mandela Effect is pretty much done running its course, it seems as though the long-simmering Secret Space Program conspiracy theory is poised to be the Next Big Thing in the world of spectrum-dwelling sci-fi conspiranerds who make up, then back up, each other's increasingly ludicrous claims about what they've experienced, witnessed and done, here on Earth, on the Moon, on Mars and yes, even in far flung galaxies clear on the other side of the Universe! 

The nature of how these beliefs come to pass has always been one of the major issues of interest harbored by yer old pal Jerky in his ramblings for the Daily Dirt (circa 1999-2006 and beyond), so when I came across this mini-documentary on Youtube, I thought I might as well share it with y'all... because I liked it, and because it says a lot about the methodologies and mindsets in question. Enjoy!
