The Jeweled Skeletons were originally found in catacombs beneath Rome in 1578, and distributed as replacements under the belief they were Christian martyrs to churches that had lost their saint relics in the Reformation. However, for most, their identities were not known. The receiving churches then spent years covering the revered skeletal strangers with jewels and golden clothing, even filling their eye sockets and sometimes adorning their teeth with finery. Yet when the Enlightenment came around they became a little embarrassing for the sheer amount of money and excess they represented, and many were hidden away or disappeared. Koudounaris tracked down the dead survivors. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Watching the Little Rascals is a decidedly inferior way for a kid to learn about American race-relations. Crazy 1930’s society, conceptions of “entertainment” aside, the kids actually worked as a perfectly harmonious, asexual, multiracial group. Absolutely nothing like reality. roryblank true-grit-with-lightskin
The Church of Tussin
Objective: To promote the exploration of one self and of the
universe with the powerful shamanic device, DXM.
This is not a blasphemous satire on religion,
but a secret ritual of practice that enables
oneself to perceive reality in a different way,
and to contact higher spiritual beings for the
promotion of self exploration and development.
Members: There are no official members, because this is
a secret religious organization and worship does
not require you to be at any particular place
at any particular time, but certain guidelines
have been set up for members to exercise self
exploration in the highest power possible with
the medium of DXM. Anyone who partakes in these
practices are called Tussinists.
Background: These are the beliefs of the Church of Tussin.
That knowledge from higher spiritual beings can
be obtained by using DXM in the appropriate way.
This religion also exercises the laws of karma.
* What you cause to others will someday be brought
back upon you, whether good or bad. *
Everything is brought back upon you in the form of
coincidence. You cannot prove or disprove these
coincidences. These coincidences are all controlled
by your own actions and by higher spiritual beings
and laws. Thus, by effectively communicating with
these higher beings, you can gain insight into the
mysteries of life and the workings of the universe.
* You must show respect for both the drug and the
DXM is only the medium, or shamanic device, which
opens up the doors of perception so man can perceive
the world as it truly is… infinite. It is only
asked that you respect any experiences as significant
and show your gratitude in the form of respect for
this substance and the trip itself.
* Each experience will reveal an answer. *
Before ingesting the DXM and starting your spiritual
journey, you should have a question in mind. The
answer should be revealed to you in some way, shape,
or form throughout your experience, usually in the
form of a coincidence.
* Avoid contact with malevolent entities. *
By using devices of divination such as the Ouija board,
you are dramatically increasing your chances of contact
with evil spiritual entities and possible possession.
You should never use black magick or any other devices
of divination, especially while under the influence of
DXM, because the doors have been opened and anything
can pass between if you request it to. The results may
be devastating on your life. If you should ever get into
a bad situation and need to flee, concentrate on the
word “Dominace,” which is Latin for the word Lord. A
word that evil entities fear very much.
* Do not ignore the visions. *
If you experience closed-eye visions, they should not
be ignored. The fabric of the universe and the path
to other dimensions has been opened for your own
perception, and you should take heed of all visions
you perceive. If the spiritual conditions are right,
you will be freely able to travel astrally thru other
dimensions. However, this is not always possible. To
some people, the doors of perception may not be opened
up for quite some time. But when the conditions are
right (i.e., you are receiving lots of visions and the
trip has a different demeanor to it) you should not
hesitate to conduct spiritual channeling and inter-
* Spiritual Channeling can be used. *
If the conditions are right you may channel, or contact,
other entities directly and command their presence. It
is generally not a good idea to call a random entity,
because anything can pass thru the gates of perception.
Call a spirit by name and concentrate on floating upwards
to make contact with it. You should be aware that often
times most contact and messages you receive from other
entities are forgotten by your conscious memory by the
time the trip ends, much like a dream. But this is meant
to be, so don’t be discouraged.
* Interdimensional Traveling can be a valuable tool
for universal exploration. *
If you lay down and are able to move your consciousness
away from your physical body, you are now astrally travelling
thru the universe. By thought alone you can guide your
astral vehicle thru the realms of perception and go on
a great journey. Other times it will be impossible to
accomplish this: the conditions of the trip must be right.
Rituals: There are no exact rituals or rites, as you may
call them, etched in stone, but a basic foundation
should be summarized when attempting to reach
the higher powers of coincidental understanding.
You should take the DXM respectfully and not
criticize others who do so, or the methods in
which they do. You must take the overall truth
in light that there is universal karma and that
you will someday be judged by all the pain and
joy you’ve caused other individuals. But to further
understand other individuals and what they may
be feeling, or why they feel it, you must embark
on a spiritual journey into the depths of the
universe, and experience what true love and
understanding is all about. Only then can you
begin to understand the complex workings of the
universe and idealize the fundamentals of every-
day respect and congregation of essential principals,
being those of love, light, and understanding.
You are a unique person, and whatever practice or
ritual you outline as your own you should stick to,
and not try to copy others practices. For whatever
works best for you may not work best for others.
To even begin to grasp the concepts of reality and
the universe, you must understand the foundations
of love and diversity, amongst those respect for
others. Open yourself up to these beliefs and
understandings and then you will manifest a greater
power that will beseige you in every circumstance
Tithings: To please the higher spiritual powers, it is only
asked and presumed that you give out as much love
and light as possible to others. Don’t hold back and
be selfish… if you follow these basic principals
of fundamental ritual then you will accomplish a
great task of bettering your life for the well-being
of mankind and for yourself. You may even find that
everything you want from life will come to you in
due time, for there is a time and a place for
everything. And when it is your time, you will know
it. Give, and you will receive. That is the Great
Circle of Life.
Practice: One may ask of the frequency in which he or she should
practice these concepts of spiritual development. The
answer is simply the more, the better. High plateaus
are not necessarily the tool for greater development.
By staying at the lower plateaus, you not only develop
a greater understanding for the universe but you are
also able to function accordingly and promote your
positive virtues to others in a fashionable, unsuspecting
way. People will notice a positive change in you, and
you will notice a change in yourself. For as little
money as it takes to buy a bottle of Robitussin, you
should take small amounts on a frequent basis and see
how far you get. But never use it in general as an
escape route from a trecherous life, or you will miss
the whole point of this religious concept. Seek, and
you shall find. DXM is only the avenue you take to
get you to that better place, higher up, where all
the streets meet into one great circle and the great
fountain of life spurts boyantly out for all to see,
encompassing every body and soul who has made the
fascinating journey to reach it.
And with these words I leave you all with great tidings
and good will towards men, for the Heavens are truly
shining down upon all who seek to further advance themselves
ossuariajewelry the best thing about this, is that it looks like a really distressed and dusty coat, but as time goes by, the flat-black will (hopefully) start to rub away, revealing the symbols underneath.
Just Artin’, y’all!
