Hospitality and the body

by Charles LaFond   We, each of us, have a human body.  We can all agree to begin there. It may be young or old, sick or well, strong or weak, beautiful or marred by life’s accidents – but we all have one. Perhaps that is why God chose to arrive with one, walk around in one, allow one to be yelled at and beaten up by Rome and religious leaders paid by Rome, killed, buried etc.   In our scriptures Jesus makes a lot about the body.  He allows his own to be touched sensually by women oiling and mas...

What’s to like about our click-crazy culture?

If you’re reading this column on Facebook, please click “like” and don’t forget to “share” my column with all your “friends,” both real and digital. Or if you have Twitter, give it that little heart-shaped thingy. I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do on Instagram, because I don’t use Instagram, but please do it anyway. “Likes” and “hearts” are very, very important. Or so I’m told. I’m also told I don’t have enough “followers.” There are people whose job it is to look at digital data, crunch t...

Acid Testing the Revival of Psychic TV and Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth

None Over the past ten years, an arcane impulse has slowly re-emerged in underground music. Formerly content to survive on the fringes of various dark subcultures (and mostly in the basements of self-anointed purists), the occult and its signifiers—spanning design, text, and sonic elements—are now crawling out of the depths of the musical imagination, and reclaiming territory once ceded. This stygian urge, both ideological and artistic, is subtler than just love of the abject, and more purposef...

Amateur radio in the news: Jonestown radio network, Girl Guides get training

The Jonestown Radio Network: How Jim Jones Spread His Message Of Death. This article was fascinating to me. I wasn’t aware that Jim Jones’ cult used amateur radio. It says: Shortwave radio linked Jonestown to the rest of the world. During the 1970s, ham radios had become increasingly common, and Jonestown residents used the shortwave radio to communicate with their acolytes worldwide. Ham radio operators in Jonestown sent “QSL cards” to people they had communicated with, a common practice at ...

The Two Competing Dipset Reunions

In the past few days, an image has been showing up on my Twitter feed again and again: a poster of Roc Weekend 2004. The poster shows the entire roster of Roc-A-Fella records, just before Roc-A-Fella Records shattered into a million pieces. And that roster is a head-spinning thing. This was that Icarus … More »

Harvey Milk’s message resonates, 40 years later

I was new to San Francisco in November 1978, having arrived the year before as a 25-year-old rabbinical school dropout from New York City. That month in my new hometown was momentous, glorious, dark, violent and history-changing. On Nov. 7, 1978, against all odds and thanks in large part to San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk’s remarkable leadership, California voters defeated Proposition 6. State Sen. John Briggs, an Orange County Republican with aspirations for statewide office, foisted that ...

Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple released a pre-Jonestown gospel album

On November 18, 1978, more than nine hundred members of the Peoples Temple, under the guidance of cult leader Rev. Jim Jones, killed themselves or were murdered in the jungles of Guyana. Five years before the mass suicide-murder though, Jones was a pillar of the San Francisco community, hobnobbing with government officials and other big-shots while leading his adoring congregation in religious, social, and political activism. It was during those sunny days that Jones and the Peoples Temple rele...

Jonestown massacre: 40 years later

“Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a phrase bandied about regularly in corporate life, especially when someone wants to take a dig at people with a cult-like belief in a business philosophy or those fanatically chasing an idea that will end badly. November 18 marked the 40th anniversary of the mass murder-suicide of more than 900 people, most of them Americans who were members of a California-based cult called the Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ, run by the reverend Jim Jones. It became know...

The C-word: what are we saying when we talk about cults?

All kinds of violent deeds have been perpetrated in the name of religion, from wars to witch-burnings to child sex abuse cover-ups. Why don’t we use the word cult more widely?Cults are hot right now, or so it would seem. One of the bestselling literary debuts of recent years, Emma Cline’s The Girls, tells of a teenage girl’s flirtation with a Manson-like cult in the summer of 1969. American Horror Story’s seventh season, subtitled Cult, delivers a political horror story that references the Manso...

Global diplomacy may be dying, but the Diplomats are still very much alive.
