>The Law of Thelema according to Dunlap

>The Red State Update $120 political ad for the Aleister Crowley in 2012 write-in campaign is possibly the most WTF viral video since the Christian Side-Hug. (Here’s a link to the official campaign website, where you can even get AC 2012 yard signs!)

The boys not only pronounce Crowley’s name correctly, but they manage to work in references to Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, and Jay Z.

And Dunlap’s explanation of the Law of Thelema is priceless. Here’s a direct link to that part, but really you should watch the whole video.

Also, Jackie’s closing rendition of “Old Rugged Cross” (direct link) is, well, fucking beautiful.

[The direct links are a little hinky because of the commercial at the beginning of the video. You have to wait for the very brief (I think it’s only 10 seconds) commercial to finish, then refresh your browser and it will go directly to the correct portion of the video.]

    >I'm writing in Apuleius or Sannion for VP. Not me, I'm too busy. Although a six-figure salary for an office worth a bucket of warm spit IS tempting …

    >I love this video so much. I mean, I've enjoyed Red State's brand of political commentary since the run-up to the 2008 election, so it was quite a joy to see them do this for Crowley. And, as you point out, they have a surprising degree of accuracy and insight. Far more, in fact, than I've seen from many self-professed Pagans and Thelemites. Kinda makes you wonder if there was more than $120 behind this thing, eh? Either way, I'm definitely casting my vote for the Great Beast come election time … unless Alexander or one of the Ptolemies should decide to run. They would, after all, have more leadership experience.
