SCIENCE FICTION, DOUBLE MUTANT
The Sweet Transvestite predictions appear to have come true with the expected shift of spotlight to Kamala Harris and the surprise of the appointment of the first transgender member of the US cabinet Rachel Levine - being a doctor is an extra sync here for Frank'n'furter. The shift in spotlight to Kamala was not quite as severe as predicted but with the Biden Fall, the Biden Hologram and the clearly sporadic consciousness of the president the focus inevitably moved to her. This was accentuated by news of her having a very important role in foreign policy, more than was normal for a VP, her subsequent speech to the UN and perhaps most importantly from the point of view of media spotlight the role in dealing with the border crisis, and the ''root causes of migration''. Those root causes include both social justice and climate change and could extend to a broad management of the Green Agenda which is effectively all the most important policy that will happen over the next four years.
I discussed that I knew there were some problems with the mathematics as we had some parts of the puzzle but not the whole thing. The main problem was whether the Destruction Team were using the soundtrack of the show, or the actual movie. We established this fairly easily with the last test (whether or not they were including ''Say Do Any of You Know How To Madison?'' that they were following the movie. Important note: the prologue of the film is not included (Science Fiction Double Feature), as the prologue runs parallel to the entire show - with the exception of the epilogue. This is how prologues work.
Approximately 5400 seconds (90 mins of the movie) divided by 365 gives us 15 seconds of the movie per day of the year. It's a little less than that but we are rounding up. This affects the run time from now on but through absolute luck it did not affect our syncing of Sweet Transvestite because we followed the Darko sync (we did not have any ''maths'' at that point anyway).
But by way of example ''Sweet Transvestite'' starts at 21m30s in (if we do not include the prologue), this give us 1290 seconds. Divide 1290 seconds by 15 and you get 86 days into 2021 for Sweet Transvestite. 31+28+27, i.e. the 27th March. The song lasts 3m10s so this means the song will run for approximately 12 days. i.e. this will now end on 9th April and we will move on to the next text/action transition sequence before the next musical number: ''I will make you a Man''. I will write a new post adjusting the dates in Sweet Transvestite but our predictions will roughly stay the same for now if the dates are all brought forward and the sequence is contracted.
This offers a challenge as we are now ''syncing'' by the film as opposed to the lyrics of the songs but it also gives us powerful new tools for back-checking the year so far according to this meta-theory. For those of you familiar with the film, early in the movie you see Brad and Janet (i.e. ordinary conservative America/UK/New Zealand/Australia/Canada) driving along a road in the storm (covid+climate change) listening to the fragmented President's speech on the radio:
''I have never been a quitter, to
leave office before my term was
completed is abhorrent to every
instinct in my body. But as
President I must put the interests
of America first. America needs a
full-time President and a fulltime ... ... Congress particularly at this
time ...... almost totally absorb the time
and attention of both the President
and Congress in a period...''
This moment is roughly 37 days into 2021 so it coincides with the impeachment of President Trump, and since it is related to Nixon may indicate an inversion of sorts in itself.
The challenge then will be in matching the action sequences such as the animation of Rocky although that clearly has some tie-in with questions about energy supply. For this we will need a new level of familiarity with this cult movie.
The prologue of the Rocky Horror Picture Show - ''Science Fiction Double Feature'' - gives us the entire show (i.e. 2021) in abstract. In order to situate ourselves in the prologue we used the Kong vs Godzilla sync/signal (Fay Wray and King Kong got caught in a celluloid jam) and Asteroid F032-2001sync/signal (at a Deadly Pace it Came from Out of Space). By our reasoning we are now crossing the first lines of the chorus - ''Science Fiction, Double Feature''- so we were on the lookout for those kind of syncs. The news cycle gave us the Biden Fall, Holographic Biden, the ''Double Mutant'' from India along with other B-movie type syncs like a pseudo Poseidon Adventure with the giant cock block of the Ever Given and a Team America style missile launch from N. Korea. The importance of this idea of 2021 as a B-sci-fi movie is very important to hold on to. I know it's not what people expected from the more medieval and demonological experience of last year but I am almost certainly positive this is the case. Adjust your mindset accordingly.
We've been flirting with the idea of using the movies as a primary way in, instead of esoteric lore more directly. For example a way in to thinking about the Medusaing of last year was Clash of the Titans (1981). Particularly the notion that the structural support for the Qliphothic associations, the narrative, the ''protagonists'' on the world stage, etc will come from cult movies. As someone pointed out the Rocky Horror Show is a very well established and powerful sex ritual in itself that was an interactive experience for members of the live audiences of the show. I wasn't very familiar with this work before February but after watching it Richard O'Brien is clearly an adept of these arts. With hindsight, The Rocky Horror Picture show is an exceptionally ''good choice'' in structuring the Qliphoth of Yesod (Gomaliel) with its emphasis on ''the genitalia'' as well as the sci-fi vibe that comes from the ''Vision of the Machinery of the Universe''.
So what is next? What's on the play list so to speak? A member of the Apocalypse Squad pointed out that Clockwork Orange would make a ''good choice'' for 2022 because of the colour association and personally I feel that she is exactly right. With traditional views of gender under assault, there will inevitably be a violent backlash from members of our society who are considered to be paragons of toxic masculinity whether it comes from street gangs or board-rooms. Hot Patootie is a foreshadowing of this and our money is still on Kanye for that role. Although we will see the beginning of a conversation about a program to
exploit reform the unemployed youth via what will probably be a climate draft for all intents and purposes this year, with those conversations likely to start in the next song ''I Will Make You a Man'', it won't really kick off until 2022, and as such Clockwork Orange is perfect for this journey.
When a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man.
A weakling weighing 98 pounds
Will get sand in his face
when kicked to the ground
And soon in the gym,
With a determined chin,
The sweat from his pores
As he works for his cause
Will make him glisten and glean
And with massage and just a little bit of...
He'll be pink and quite clean
He'll be a strong man
Oh, honey, but the wrong man...
