This is just to get me started, but it seems like Big Brother tonight, with mario and his monarch butterflies and Josie throughout the years, it has something of ritual...strange show, ominously the eye behind davina, and the suspicion of vote rigging and the implied "Josie is gonna win" for the past few weeks says to me that we have been laughed at and the achievement is theirs not ours.
This is something I'm gonna have to think about..but the 24th of August..I'm gonna have to research this more..wikipedia

Mundus patet, a harvest feast involving the dead. (Roman Empire)
A lapis manalis (Latin: "stone of the Manes") was either of two sacred stones used in the Roman religion. One covered a gate to Hades, abode of the dead; Festus called it ostium Orci, "the gate of Orcus". The other was used to make rain; this one may have no direct relationship with the Manes, but is instead derived from the verb manare, "to flow".
The two stones had the same name. However, the grammarian Festus held the cover to the gate of the underworld and the rainmaking stone to be two distinct stones.
-Could it be that the Big Brother house is a symbolic representation of the gate to hades? it would explain alot, the kind of fire and brimstone, distorted behaviours and the kind of devil themes (whats with the dummy) that have been abounding.
another aspect is making it rain ...
Obviously I have handpicked this stuff, but wow, its kinda weird! This years Big Brother is extremely ritualistic, more so than previously.
Oh and Now we have ULTIMATE Big Brother..how strange that this is also (24th August) the day that 1600 years ago Rome fell to the Visigoths
"Tuesday marks the 1,600th anniversary of one of the turning points of European history - the first sack of Imperial Rome by an army of Visigoths, northern European barbarian tribesmen, led by a general called Alaric." BBC
all I can say now, is shits getting real - the voyeuristic gladiatorial game that is this show,its Ultimate! [google definition = furthest or highest in degree or order; utmost or extreme; "the ultimate achievement"; "the ultimate question"; "man's ultimate destiny"; "the ultimate insult"; "one's ultimate goal in life" ]
notice furthest in degree or order, it seems that perhaps Big Brother has decided to show us the BEST it has to offer, those above us. But frankly the end is nigh for big brother (at least the show) but it intends to weave a magic spell upon us, just as Anthea Turner weaved a nice subliminal in the other day (Love Big Brother, Big Brother is nice sometimes. The kind of finality though, bringing the old in with the new, I just cannot put my finger on it, but eventually I will have an answer and an update as to what is going on here
Okay, I'm lazy so my update will not involve any real editing of this piece. Basically, I've struggled to bring myself to watch the show, and with the possibility of the move to Channel 5, any kind of ritual being performed by the elites via Endemol may not be so important, however I have come to the conclusion that the ENTIRE show itself is staged, even the interactions between housemates. For example the developing "love story" between exes Preston and Chantelle, or the odd behaviour of the "housemates"
just look at ultimate bb say 12 - sourced from Unreality TV
"All of the housemates are in the Bedroom. They are woken up by ‘It’s oh so quiet’ by Bjork. All the housemates dance and sing along.
Brian tells Chantelle about the dream he had last night about Girls Aloud. He stops talking when he notices a chalk board table in the Living Room. Chantelle points out that this must be for Vanessa."
Brian really dreamt about Girls Aloud? Or is Brian actually being paid to sponsor them?
"Michelle and Preston are in the Garden talking about the eviction of Nadia and Makosi. “It’s sad hearing your friends get booed”, says Preston. Michelle agrees. “It’s all a charade”, he adds." indeed, it is all a charade.
Nice little weight superliminal: "Housemates are in the Living Room discussing Vanessa’s gastric band. “Do they half your stomach”, asks Vanessa. Vanessa uses a plastic bottle and elastic band to explain the process. “I think you look amazing”, says Nikki." - well of course she does, shes had a gastric band fitted! forget exercise, you know, what humans have done for hundreds of thousands of years. No go get surgery and sit on your arse all day!
the tasks are not only puerile, they're just plain weird
"In the task room the housemates are called one by one to face their challenges. All challenges are being set by Big Brother 9′s Rex. He is in the task room dressed as a devil. Brian is asked to find a needle in a nettle stack, Michelle has to be tickled for three minutes by Big Brother 4′s Jon Tickle, Nikki has to transfer dead fish into a bowl of ice, Ulrika has to eat wasabi and lard ice cream, Vanessa and Chantelle must play catch with a cactus, Preston has to face three minutes of wrestling holds, Nick has to crawl along a line of hairbrushes and Victor has to be fired at with a range of nasty substances followed by a cream pie. Housemates manage to remain silent passing the task."
devil?? why a devil?? can anyone explain this? other than a desensitization towards demonic entities. If your into that, you should check out most of Lenon Honors work - my god that man is inspirational at times!
I will point out that even though i dont watch this shit anymore, and thus have seen NONE of this, I can already see that Victor being fired at with a range of nasty substances followed by a "cream pie" is little more than being WAYY TOO OBVIOUS!
My job is so easy sometimes
