The Muse Makes Me Yell

  • Oct. 7th, 2006 at 5:20 AM
"Jason Lee was a professional skateboarder before he was an actor," the Muse said, reading out of a magazine article.

"Wow, really?" I said.

She nodded. "And he's a member of the Church of Scientology."


She turned the page, never looking at me. "How quickly your opinions can change."

I shrugged. "It's the R6 implant Xenu placed in my mind 75,000,000 years ago. The engrams are whacking me out."

"If there's a Scientology hell, you're going straight there when you die."

"Gosh, maybe there's still time for me to get rich enough to pay for all the audits it'll take to get myself cleansed."

"Unbeliever," she said.

"On my planet, we like to call ourselves 'sane.' "

Okay, see, I commented on the post after this one that I wasn't trying to make fun of anyone's religion, but I take that back: Scientologists are just nuts, although I suppose that the odds of some alien being 75 million years ago fucking with the minds of humans and all that associated stuff is really just as likely as some grand Creator designing everything, when you get right down to it.

Scientologists, though?

Yeah, I'd have to agree with you there. Maybe he's just using Scientology to get an in with the famous higher-ups in Hollywood...? C'mon... I mean, surely The Lee would be smarter than to be taken in by all that stuff, right....?

Well, you never know... people are complicated, and sometimes they do weird things... like Scientology.

Just warn me before you go following him, so I can talk you out of it, okay?

I don't think you'll have to worry. Although I did read Battlefield Earth. Man, that's several months of my life I'll never get back.

I read one volume of Hubbard's--whatthefuckwasitcalled?--that series of his that has something like ten volumes in it, because it was back in my bookstore worker days, and I figured I should read at least one of his, just so when people asked for my opinion, I could have an informed one. God, it was awful. Terrible. Hideous. Booooooooooring. How in the world did this hack ever get published in the first place?

I have NO idea. You mean that... Dianetics thing? Yeah. I mean, like the first... 300 pages or so of Battlefield Earth was pretty decent, good story. But then the last 700 pages was just... torture to get through, seriously. I kept it by my bed because if I picked it up to read before going to sleep, I'd be out in like, 1 paragraph. So it took me almost a year to finish it, LOL.

Exactly! Awful, awful, awful.

I also don't like Piers Anthony, but that's another story ;)

And the Hubbard book wasn't Dianetics, but some other science fiction endless saga. Can't remember the name, though...

Might have been Battlefield Earth then, I can't remember anything else he's written but those. Thank goodness. :P

Maybe that was it, and it was just so awful that I managed to block it from my mind.


That's the ticket.

I try not to think about him being a scientologist. It just makes me sad. :(

I'm going to like him as an actor in spite of it, the same way I like my frothing-at-the-mouth conservative "kill all them towelhead" friends of mine (although, admittedly, there's only one of those, and if I didn't have to work with him, we probably wouldn't be friends; he was, however, the only one of my friends to help me move last year, so I have to cut him some slack for that).

Think On It
