floating through autumn,

he tastes something sweet

in orange and burgundy

leaves

as they fall

snow on the back

of the heat

as it travels

to spring

in the lands that are far

far away

REVIEW OF LAST WEEK’S EVENT HERE

The Occasional Review: Sects, Cults, and Mind-control

by fyarlgiles

SECTS, CULTS, AND MIND CONTROL 

at the Cinefamily

cultsmixencore

 

The clips themselves were outrageous, I will never forget the final 5 minutes of the night, when  we watched in horror and delight as newly-initiated fanatics shook spastically in the nude while throwing pillows at each other.

The Cinefamily is an independent theater in Hollywood which focuses on making movie-going a social experience through creative, film-related events. The theater itself was once a silent movie theater, and the old marquee still hangs above its entrance: a charming detail which encompasses everything you feel upon entering: nostalgia, warmth, and a loving appreciation for art and film.

  Last week, Meaghan and I  attended “Sects, Cults, and Mind Control”, an artful and informative look at how cults use mind-control techniques to gain and keep followers. Through lecture, bizarre clips, and montages of news footage set to music, the event provided insightful commentary about how the birth of psychology set the stage for the concept of social engineering. The desire to understand the human mind, many times, is fueled by the desire to manipulate and control the thoughts of others.

The clips themselves were outrageous, I will never forget the final 5 minutes of the night, when  we watched in horror and delight as newly-initiated fanatics shook spastically in the nude while throwing pillows at each other. But the absurdity was only a fraction of the event’s intrigue. What keeps us coming back is the intimate setting and sincerity of all the people who work there. There were maybe 100 people in attendance, and the curators of the event spoke to their audience as if they were old friends gathering for beer and cheetos in the  living room.

Goodnight

beauty lazing

on a Sunday

soaking in the Summer’s flame.

golden peaches

drinking morning

from a fountain in the sky

Now,

All the embers

of the daylight

smolder in my empty bed

til the starlight

whispers softly

sleep away the world tonight

Love’s Sting

Climb a mountain

with the thorns

of singing roses

on your lips

kiss me slowly

true and quiet

so I’ll learn

the pain of love
