Yeah! I don’t see why a Cock God is any sillier than a flying dick. I still say the magicians and ventriloquists are getting a bum wrap. :)

no sillier than any god imo, no matter what shape they come in.

Mojo   A Post-Modern Satire and Sex Comedy  by AC Benus       I am so happy to open this topic for discussion of this amazing work from AC Benus. I am also luck

Here are some visuals. This is the church where the Self-Help conference was held. The parish was founded in 1784.   

This church is a favorite for movie and TV location filming. It's very lovely and peaceful in here.

That’s why I’m an Agnostic. I laugh at all of them. And all their silly fairytales!  ;–)

yeah, all it is, is a cult, mind control believing in fairies, how you cannot see it is beyond me ... The Donkey Club is no different

The only difference between a cult and a religion is the number of ‘believers’ – and which group you belong to!  ;–)

"Shared assumptions about understanding and describing the world through data-driven inquiry are under assault,” a very Mojo message, succinctly delivered by Thomas Rosenbaum, president of Caltech, in an email today. Growing up in a bubble of reason, I assumed these assumptions be widely and firmly shared, so the recent assault confused me. I’ve since concluded that these assumptions were firmly accepted by a minority and flimsily accepted by a majority, while another minority fumed in silence.

There are conventions for Flat Earth believers. Many treat it as the joke that it is, but some seem to take it seriously! It’s scary how much rational, fact-driven teaching is being replaced by rote memorization in public schools.

I remember hearing stories(?) about vigilantes in the ‘60s or ‘70s accosting young men with long hair and cutting it off! At the time I thought it was barbaric. But I’m starting to understand where they’re coming from!

 

Off with their buns!

I’m not sure how true they were. They might have threatened to do that in the South. Or they might have just been scary rumors meant to frighten like ghost stories!  ;–)

FYI, I posted this note with today's chapter:

 

Thanks for reading up to this point. As Mojo is three-quarters European, it will now be taking its mandatory 6-week holiday to the Côte du Soleil :)

 

As I won't be able to accompany it, I'll use the upcoming break to post a little summertime novella I've worked up. Please read my new piece, and do not worry -- the gang from your favorite "satire and sex comedy" will be back soon enough. The donkey-dick folks will see to that...

I'm not a fan of serials. I tried to read the bound volume, but did manage to watch most of the TV version that came out in the 90s.

I read bits and pieces of Tales in the Chronicle when we first moved back to the Bay Area in 1978. I was thrilled to find the books much later. And I bought copies of the Examiner every day when Significant Others (the 5th book) was serialized.

 

At that point in my life, I’d never read a story that included real-life locations and, sometimes, people that were mentioned on the news! I’d see various locations mentioned on the news and read the same locations in Tales! And stuff that was in the news would often show up in the story! I was learning about my new region with the combination of the two.

 

I’d spent most of my growing up years in San Diego and the Bay Area was rarely mentioned in the news. The few stories were about how weird people were there. California news was either about stuff out of Sacramento or the hated monstrosity that is Los Angeles. ‘San Francisco’ was basically anything north of Kern County!

 

1970s San Diego still thought of itself as a small Navy town with all the conservative instincts that implied – Mayor Pete Wilson was the fresh face of the ‘New’ Republican Party who helped clean up the corrupt Frank Curran administration. And we clean up the visible corruption by redeveloping the sleazy area where Sailors and Marines hang out downtown and replacing it with a fancy shopping mall that inherited the nasty area’s name: Horton Plaza. Shut down the dive bars, tattoo parlors, and other low-life hangouts. Arrest all the hookers. It’s schizophrenic how the Navy and Marine Corp are welcomed with open arms, but the favored activities and pursuits of the Sailors and Marines themselves is decried.

Nah AC does not write serials. Mojo is a book. Written and finished before posting. It is not written as the author gets to it. Its written properly.

No, I don't write soap operas (that's what 'serial' means -- like Tales of the City, which was posted in couple-hundred word segments in the daily newspapers - just endless little plot arc-ettes that only fade into the next arc-ette) they bore the &%$# out of me.

..man, you really don't understand do you? There's nothing "As the Stomach Churns" about a consummate novel like Oliver Twist, even if it appeared in public one month at a time. Just because I post one week at a time does not mean I write soap opera shit...

While the early Tales stories were light, fluffy serials, the later books are more serious, fully developed novels.

 

I don’t see serials as necessarily being soap opera-ish. I just see it as a format where the pieces are doled out individually rather than all at once. I’m not trying to insult you at all!

      I'm well past the halfway point of my life.  Nevertheless, even at this point, I'm still slamming into reminders of just how odd my upbringing was - how my life set me up to be completely at odds with the rest of the world.  
      Left-handed among right-handed people, multi-generational household, gay back when people openly discussed using fags for target shooting.  Each of these subjects have impacts and depths that many people may not realize.  But none of those are the main focus of this.

      I attended an experimental school.  There were no walls, no class hours, no assigned homerooms or teachers, no letter grades or even grade levels.  Everything was based on mastery of information.  I may be 13 years-old and reading a college textbook but doing remedial math.  There was a very careful, deliberate elimination of all forms of competition.  No sports.  No pitting one student against the other.  No comparisons.  Competition was viewed as the root of all evil.  Any instructor could help any student with any subject.  There were a set number of hours to each school-day but how those hours were used was completely up to me.

      I have found, for my entire life, I stood out - for so many reasons!  Aside from the usual things that a gay kid would be forced to deal with in the sixties, my brain was shaped by a counterculture philosophy.  That, in turn, has been a mixed blessing.  My personal happiness is inextricably linked to and indistinguishable from your own happiness.  My goals and success depend, indeed, require your cooperation.  How does one make their way through a world that is completely opposite to the way they were taught was morally righteous and ethically correct?  There's volumes of details I could go into, but for a conversation starter, I hope this will inspire some comments.

      Love
      when you see the smile from someone feeling the same.
      or the warmth in your chest from the mention of a name.
      Love
      your first thought in the beginning of a day,
      and the last thing you feel when you're hitting the hay.
      Love
      when every moment you're waiting you seem to ache,
      so afraid that from this dream you'll wake.
      Love
      the feeling so strong time seize to exist
      Yet even those moments blow away like mist.
      Love
      filling you up 'till you feel so strong,
      yet so small that you feel you'll do everything wrong
      Love
      when the smallest thing can send you into a rut,
      yet the same thing will pull you back up.
      Love
      when you warm up by the mention of a name
      knowing by their smile that they feel the same.

      Before you start rubbing your hands with glee at the thought of something new, it isn't. Unless you missed it the first time around, that is. This story, currently On Hold, started out as a response to one of Cia's writing games. This is Chapter 1. Both I and its then readers thought the demon deserved more, so additional chapters followed. Much as I loved writing the humour and satire, the characterisation and plotting left something to be desired. Nothing insolvable - just needing more time than I've had to spare. The urge to return to Hell has hauled me back and I'm considering the options. One reason for this topic is to explain that the next thing to happen to Demonised is likely to be the appearance of a Prologue. Yes, I know - mad. But... Chapter 1 gets going without any introduction to the characters or locale at all (a legacy of its conception) and readers deserve more. It'll also help me to set the tone of Tommie (the demon's damned) from the outset, and from there I stand a chance of making the rest at least more coherent.

      i count every hour 
      every minute
      every second
      to see your face
      to touch your hand
      to feel your skin
      to see your delighted eyes
      to see your smile:)
      for just a second...
      i just want to die after these 
      i want to take my last breath from your smell
      iwant to take my last look of your face
      i want to have my last touch of your skin
      i want to kiss your hand while dying,having your hand in my fist
      just
      let me die slowly...
      concentrated in your eyes....
      yes, i want this.
