Pop Culture PaganismHail Robert E. Lee Erryday

Discussion in 'Community Watch' started by Gym Leader Elesa, May 19, 2017.

  1. A long time ago I explained to a fellow Kiwi the essence of Pop Culture Paganism, a new religious movement of people who, rather than becoming fictionkin or claiming Multiple Personality Disorder, choose instead to worship the objects of their obsession and create bizarre, syncretic, religious traditions around them. My explanation left them wanting more, and others expressed interest as well since its an obscure but engrossing topic. So let's plunge right in. It's a goddamn journey.

    An almost endless source of lulz, they were mocked relentlessly even on tumblr and it only takes a quick perusal of their insane content to see why.

    This dualistic distinction between magic and paganism forms a large part of their thinking, as you can see from the emphasis the Pagan Study Group of Tumblr puts on it, but even within either "traditions", there is great diversity to be found. After all, is a patronus your tool, or is Ash Ketchum your God?

    - Taylor Elwood, who can be found here is an endless source of amusement we will revisit later.

    Apparently praying to the four members of Metallica will make you a better wizard. I think this may be true, but not in the sense that they envision. This quote comes from an interview conducted here with Emily Carlin, who has her own autistic webpage at http://www.e-carlin.com.

    Up next...

    PCpagan6.png

    Worshipers of the Aedra and Daedra congregate to praise the Dovakhiin and seek feedback on their Call Dragon Shouts here at https://tespaganism.tumblr.com.

    But psychically summon the Dragonborn, call down the wrath of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and introduce you to the spiritual path of literal balls-to-the wall Dr.Who worship is not all that PC Paganism can do for you. No, it is also a critical weapon in the war against Drumpf.

    Donald Trump is a powerful Pop-Culture mage and a cosmic embodiment of American values. This is a serious problem that merits serious consideration.

    PCpagan8.png

    Unfortunately, as Taylor Elwood continues, Donald Trump's magical forcefield is difficult to breach without first exploring options that negate his mystical zeitgeist. The video link he provided for anyone who may be able to access it.

    PCpagan9.png

    Be careful when trying to summon Captain America and Uncle Sam, they're on his side! I can't even respond to that. Luckily, I don't have to, because Emily Carlin feels otherwise:

    PCPagan15.png

    Oh, man. Here it comes...

    PCPagan16.png

    I wonder if my fabulous red hat can be a MAGA hat? Huh, if Trump is so powerful, doesn't that imply I could pray to Him?

    "But Elesa", I hear you say, "surely these people can't be serious. Even multiple systems make fun of these people!"

    Don't worry, they have a robust theology full of competing theories as to how Wonder Woman can hear your pleas to release pent-up sexual frustration and even the ethics of doing so:

    PCPagan10.png

    "Creating a tulpa and then worshiping and appeasing it is perfectly sound theology and psychology, wouldn't you agree? Link agreed. He and Zelda Moon-Spirit are of a mind on this."

    PCPagan11.png

    "I don't really get what's so weird about worshiping a living member of the human race. Seems awwwright to me."

    PCPagan12.png

    :story:

    "Please consider how Sonic the Hedgehog would feel before offering him blood sacrifice" in so many words, is one of the most insane recommendations I have ever been given on the internet, and every thing written before that is somehow even more insane. But it's all for the best.

    PCPagan13.png

    This only scratches the surface, Kiwis. These tags, blogs, and forums are a vast ocean of autism consisting of thousands of people praying to Hulk Hogan and the Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers in the same way that one might pray to Jesus Christ or Belenus.

    So with that in mind, I'm tagging @Derbydollar because I promised them this thread ages and ages ago and so concludes my virgin OP. Have at it, y'all, and don't forget to hail Robert E. Lee every day. He needs all your spiritual power to defeat Captain America and Donald Trump.

    Edit: Brief update, I found Taylor Ellwood's newer youtube channel! He teaches you how to cast spells.

  4. Maybe Chris Chan was into pop culture paganism, and that explains why he used to yell "CURSE YEE HAME HAAAAA!!!" at people.

  5. Hey, here's that thread you said you were going to make! :lol:

    It's hard to say much about these people, because of how stupid it is to worship pop culture icons. The extreme of them are probably so exceptional that they may actually believe that mario listens to their prayers, but the majority of them just enjoy being more special than their stupid dumb family that goes to church every other Sunday. I don't know which is worse, honestly *sigh*

  10. I have mixed feelings about neo paganism but this is fucking stupid. Being eclectic is one thing praying to an overtly false god is another.

  11. When people took the phrase "meme magic is real" way too seriously...

    On the other hand, this more or less explains @Brad Watson_Miami's insanity nicely.

  12. So this is basically tumblr's equivalant of Kek worship?
    /pol/ and tumblr really are two sides of the same coin.

  19. This reminds me of how in post-apocalyptic movies there's always some group of cultists that worships Mickey Mouse, V8 Engines, or unexploded nukes as gods. The apocalypse hasn't even happened and these guys are already doing it. They have no fucking excuse.
