THEME SUGGESTIONS FOR 2015

Carnival Of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

Now the question is, to raise the ante on the whole deal, can we do 10 million pounds of ammonium perchlorate? On this burn, you won't need Sandmen, you'll need the safety perimeter to extend all the way back to Gerlach.

I'll be tending the seismograph back in Reno to see if we can crack a modified Richter scale 4.0.

"Fuckoism is a great elusive philosphy, practiced throughout time and place and history.
Bugs Bunny is a great fucko ICON. Groucho Marx, Bill Hicks, Moe from the three stoges. Yet a whole new generation of fuckos have emerged. Those who do it less for entertainmant and more for personal expression.

For example. I ve always been struck by the following Poem:


I have learned so much from God
That I can no longer call myself
a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew.
The Truth has shared so much of itself with me
that I can no longer call myself
a man, a woman, an angel
or even pure soul.
Love has befriended me so completely
It has turned to ash and freed me
of every concept and image
my mind has ever known.
-Hafiz



A fucko in a genral sense may rewrite the line in fuckoism:


I have learned so much from God fearing people
That I can no longer call myself
a friend of a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew.


But a creative fucko expressive might re write the line to reflect more perso-anal insight:


I have learned so much from Godlessness
That I can no longer call myself
anything but a situationalist.
I see others this way to and shocked
to find out they don't know this about themselves.
The Truth has shared so much of itself with me
that I can no longer call myself truthful,
but I can sure smell bullshit, my own, my culture's
and especially other people's.
Love has befriended me so completely
I know i would get arrested for acting on it.
Law has freed me of every ability to be the person I am,
and be only the person I can get away with.


Thus a gentle mix of Iconoclastism, sin-a-cism and pragmaticism gently shaken, not stirred together..

like cool aid and tequilla.

Only thing left to decide is whether or not to tell people about it,

beforehand or not.
oxoxo
fucko"
