Well put. I just got a whole mess of these old Bohemian Grove images; not all of them as loony as this one, but just the idea of this place and the mythos surrounding it (Owl worshipping, mock sacrifices, etc) is loony enough on its own, y'ask me.

Again I am educated by coming to ICPWAGTBAWLODC, never heard of this place.

A quick Google of "Bohemian Grove" should come up with some pretty f@#$ed up s#$%.

A conspiracy theorist's paradise, really.

Most of the really loony stuff about what goes on up there is probably the bunk, but the actual events and rituals . . . and this is empirical; there's pretty good video of a ceremony they call the 'Cremation of Care' from 2000 . . . are flat-out bizarre.

My guess is, most if not all of the attendees don't take it seriously; they probably receive it like a fraternity ritual. But its got enough Pagan symbology in it to send the Power Elite conspiracy freaks right into orbit.

Mr. SWAC: remind me to dig up an essay on "bohemians" in general I did years ago for another project. It's always been an odd movement. Still is.

Kim, why don't you dig up that essay you did on bohemians?
