The Week in Conspiracy (31 Oct 2011 edition)

Hello, hello from the city where pants are optional, New Orleans. I gave my talk about anti-Jesuit and anti-Catholic conspiracy theories yesterday, and then we bopped along Canal Street to the Smarti Gras party.

  • I know that when I need medical advice, I go to a strung-out, obviously intoxicated rapper. I mean, not me, Vigilant Citizen:

This week in straight to DVD:

Here is a compilation of reviews of Anonymous, a film in which Roland Emmerich does to Shakespeare what he does to little models of the White House.

“In London, the Flat Earth Society explains that we live on a giant disk. In Petersburg, Ky., the Creation Museum shows cave men and dinosaurs frolicking together. And in a movie theater near you, “Anonymous,” which opened Friday, reveals how the Earl of Oxford wrote Shakespeare’s plays.”

No week in conspiracy this week, folks! Tomorrow, I’ll be talking to Jon Ronson, who is Skyping into a few classes at Georgia Tech. Pretty exciting!

    There should just be a stupid tax.

    Around here we call it the Powerball.

    I just want to say, that Snoop Dogg video is the most awesome thing I’ve seen this week. I’ve watched it three times, and I still don’t’ know if it’s serious or not. Sheer brilliance!

    The arguement that mankind originally came from the pleiades as been a long standing piece of “wisdom” from believers in ancien t astronauts since the 1950’s.

    I do like the sound of Anonymous sinking, but I’m annoyed at the occasional positive reviews. I also admit Marlowe as Shakespeare would indeed have been much better, espe3cially since Marlowe actually wrote really good plays. Dr. Faustus anyone?

    I love it when Shapiro gets to school folks!
