Jung-Eliade school of... I suppose I must say thought, though it
beggars imagination; the other on the weird history of how Zen came to
the the West. We are living in a cultural funhouse that stopped being
fun a long time ago. When I say weird, I mean really weird! This
stuff continues to blow my mind.

However, consider this a sort of intermission. The clip below is just

the following piece, I might miss the ROTFL irony. Don't you make that
mistake, Gentle Reader. Who else but a twisted ad creative would
