Anything... and some!


As a point of curious interest, besides being displayed in The Karate Kid I & III, I recently divulged that My former dojo "Jun Chong Tae Kwon Do" {'Cobra Kai' dojo} was also used as a filming location for the movie "Say Anything", wherein a couple of the characters are kickboxing. I noticed that the Korean and American flags were moved down from the usual top location to the sides of the lower wall, framing the single panel mirror, whereas there are two additional wall mirrors that normally go there, but were removed for the scene. Not to mention that a boxing ring was placed in the center of the dojo, where in reality, there was never one there ever.

At that entrance to the lower far right, I recall that drinking fountain well - it had just the coldest, most refreshing water you ever could desire, and just to the left of that, the locker/dressing room, which also contained a bench press.

Additionally, I recognize the surroundings from the 'radio scene' - that is in fact North Hollywood Park, where I spent remmus with the YMCA. The campers would migrate just across the street to the park, where we would have engaged in arts & crafts activities, played quaint games like "flag football", "tag", and whatnot, and used as a meeting point before and after field trips to various amusement park locations. While a couple of times throughout the rest of the year, this was where the outdoor testing days for the dojo were held.

If you look behind the character to the right, a small bit where the path veers to the left, it was between those two trees where a big bully was back kicked in the throat by the Dracling for chasing him around the park with threats of a pummeling. He ended up falling back and swallowed his tongue. The paramedics and his mother were called. It was clear self-defense, and I know My Sensei was proud.

This '7-11' convenience store is located just in front of the Y, and across the street from North Hollywood Park. I believe I acquired 'slurpees' there from time to time.

While on the subject of North Hollywood Park, the beginning scene from a favorite comedy Peewee's Big Adventure was also filmed along that path, wherein he rides his red bicycle along between those trees. As an aside, I would also later travel to The Cabazon Dinosaurs and the iconic Wheel Inn [EAT], seated where he was at the diner counter.

And lastly, as mentioned elsewhere, the hearse crash scene from Knight Rider episode "Deadly Knightshade" was filmed on the corner of North Hollywood Park at Magnolia & Tujunga, right across the street from the Amelia Earhart library. ∞

Satan is Hot

Devil Worship graffiti on Alton Church: "Hail Satan! {He's Sexy}". Why, thank you!

Madison County, MO: Here is a more amusing one for the 'Hex Files', as it were. Besides the usual tell-tale inverted crosses and 666 markings, seems these vandals took another slant on their graffiti, adding an appreciative recognition of Satan's salacious qualities, which makes it truly unique, as far as vandalism is concerned, that is. If this is the manner they choose to see The Prince of Darkness, in the archetype's multi-dimensional facets, it would be assuredly true - The Lord of Lust and carnal pleasures, the figure with aesthetic accentuation deriving from Dionysus / Pan as well as symbolic connotations, and just about anything the imagination can conceive and perceive besides.

"Satan Is Hot" would have been a good one too.* Plus, I thought it especially amusing that the commentary is actually in parenthesis, which shows a modicum of grammatical sensibility. Considering the rather 'cursive' flow of the words, perhaps the vandal/s could be either gay, bisexual, female {who normally tend to not commit these types of crimes}, or just plain jokers {perhaps with certain unrealized proclivities}. ∞

untermensch hysterics

Knoxville, TN: Here's a real nutjob exuding victim mentality using the cult angle, just like many others during The Satanic Panic. In the haze of her obvious mental illness, she views the world in a simplistic cartoon character scenario of base duality, and has fabricated such a tale to match. Plus, if mother "antichrist" was so powerful, then she would have seen the attack coming!*

There certainly are immensely powerful Satanists in a variety of strata, be it Magical, financial, political, artistic {also see The Infernal Alignment; Dracomeroth}, but this influence is utilized for personal gain and shaping the world according to one's desires, not wasted on such petty lower life forms. A true Satanist would not bother with such rabble, even with Lesser Magic. There is much larger game in the world.

Regarding the Übermensch & untermensch, "Never the twain shall meet." [Rudyard Kipling].

At least she is forthcoming with a confession, which will guarantee a lengthy incarceration, considering the nature of the crime. Unfortunately, because of this unfit mother, the child will likely be remanded to the county, or extended family, or perhaps fortunately adopted by a stable couple, maybe even grandma, who seems to be rather interesting.

If any such spells were intended to drive her insane, then they have definitely worked! ∞
