Holiday Greetings

Greetings one and all. Hope you all had a great Christmas and are getting ready for a peaceful new year. Although in Bangkok that can be difficult.

One of the things I've recently discovered is the joy of YouTube. In addition to the white-boy rap and stupid-guy-falling-on-things videos, there are a couple of gems.

A quick search for "Freemason" reveals a number of interesting things. First of all, there's a very prolific band out there named Freemasons. Their music is crap, but their videos feature a great deal of cleavage...for those of you who like that sort of thing.

The second is the large number of anti-Masonic garbage out there. In particular a number of videos revealing the fact that we (Freemasons, that is) led the charge on the twin towers on 9/11 and continue to stoke the fires of war to better enable our brethren to sell bombs, planes and toy trains. These videos (especially the John Conner ones) are just crap. They were created by someone who memorized Stephen Knight's Brotherhood and the various other Jack Chick-like creations.

After you get through all the crap, you'll find actual videos from actual Grand Lodges! These are good. They offer a balanced and knowledgeable introduction to the Craft. But what's the point? They don't talk about Baphomet at all! :)

I'm waiting for Bro. Barrie to compile his own video and put it on the web. Hopefully its not the one where I'm sleeping during Harmony!

Happy New Year everybody!
