WINTER SOLSTICE!



Yes readers, it's that time of year again, the WINTER SOLSTICE. You heard that right, time to get down to the Stones and party down. Or not, but hey, your call.




Maybe you don't want to get down and dirty with a crew of thieving hippies in the English countryside, maybe you don't want to worship the Moon Goddess with a cocktail of cheap red wine, fake hallucinogens and Special Brew. Then again, maybe you do.




Here at the Compound we don't judge, knock yourselves out, just don't be surprised when you wake up in a ditch and your wallet's been ripped off by an unwashed emissary of Giaia.

Hippies, Cause Or Symptom


Why are we in the mess we're in today, and it is a mess. A super athlete bloke is hailed as woman of the year. We're told that a country without borders is patriotic, that abortion's healthcare and the more you're taxed the richer you will be.




For that matter, we're supposed to believe that it's somehow OK for a duly elected president to live under a 2 year+ investigation for "Russian Collusion" without a shred of evidence, and all at taxpayer expense. Well, don't say Deep State and they never thought she'd lose.




But regardless, throw a dart at the board and get a nasty story. From Syria to Abolish ICE to trans bathrooms as the new sacrament of civil liberty, the whole edifice of Western Civ seems to be going down the pan. Whose fault is it? Hippies?




Some say yes, the hippies are responsible. They're thieves, liars and mountebanks, just look what they did to Joni! And, at the drop of a dreadlock they'll rip off your sailboat and trash your land.




Still, are hippies the cause, the symptom or both?

Your call,

Are We Descended From Apes?



Are we descended from apes and chimpanzees? Good question and one expert, Robin Crompton of the University of Liverpool, says it's the other way around.

Based on the fossilized bones of a 3.7 million year old human ancestor, Austrolipithecus, Crompton believes that our early ancestors lived in trees and were bipedal, they could walk upright. Chimps and other monkeys went on to knuckle drag in the interests of speed and ease but we didn't.




This means that the apes and ourselves, for that matter, come from a common ancestor that's more like us than some kind of chimp and that we took the high road and the apes didn't. Well done, human forebearers, you made the right choice.

Well so what. So a lot. We've been taught that humans started out as chimps, got bigger, became apes and then somehow became rational or irrational human beings. Ascent of the Species and thank you very much, Darwin, Boom.




But this lineal progression may not be true. Something very like a human existed in the happy canopy of the trees, according to Crompton, and advanced on. Others, coming from the same stock devolved into bestial apes, leaving us where we are today.

I'm no expert but maybe Crompton has a point, his early hominin fossil seems to say so, but consider this. When did monkeys become rational? When did apes start to reason?




We did, at some point, albeit imperfectly. When and how did this happen and why didn't it happen for the rest of the monkeys and still hasn't now. No one knows but it should have done, right? 

If we all come from a common arboreal ancestor and the ability to reason is simply part of the evolutionary process, then the monkeys that devolved from us should be able to pick up the plot, but they haven't.




Perhaps they're evolutionary dead ends. But serious question. There's a massive leap from irrational animal to rational human. How did that occur and if it could do so for us and not our ape allies, then why not? 

After all, we have a common ancestor, or not.

Summer Solstice



Thanks to a noted member of the intelligence community we all know it's the Summer Solstice. How very beautiful.




It seems innocent.




But is it?




Better mind your wallets.





Hippies are thieves.

Solstice!



Yes, you got that right, it's the Solstice, the longest day of the year, a day when hippies come out to play and sing. 




In England that means dusting off the antlers, putting on your unicorn mask and heading off to The Stones for mysticke revelry. 


Keep it Clean, Hippies

If you're a top-level hippy, you can even dress up like a druid wizard. All good, harmless fun, eh?


Face Painting

Sure it is, until you wake up from a crazed body painting session and discover someone's ripped off your giro, leaving you possessed by a Special Brew demon.


The Magic Of The Stones

Here at the Compound we're not marking the Solstice by travelling to Austin's famous fiberglass stone circle, much less its superior English forbear, heck, we didn't even make it to Burning Man. But we are saying this.


Hose Them Down

If you meet the hippy on the road, hose it down, AR15 optional.

Love and Peace,

Winter Solstice Pagan Hi-Jinx!



Guess what, readers. It's the Winter Solstice! That means you get to worship the rebirth of the sun on the shortest day of the year and goof-off at the sacred circle, where the wizard sages sat. And steal stuff, along with all the other hippies.


Cheer up Pagans! Someone steal your Giro?

Don't bother about taking a shower or anything: 1. There isn't one and 2. You don't do that anyway. But go right ahead and get down with all the other thieves druids, just don't freak out when you end up in a Wicker Man and it's on fire.


Moonsong. A Priest of Pan

In related news, a self-described "priest of Pan," called Moonsong, wasn't too happy when Maine's Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BVM) wouldn't let him wear goat horns for his photo i.d. 


A Typical Pagan State i.d.

So Moonsong got in touch with the ACLU and before you could say "lawsuit," the BVM backed down and Moonsong gets to wear his goat horns. You can read the whole thing here.




What do we think about that, here at the Compound? It's obviously a great victory for pagans everywhere. But here's a thought, worshipers of the Horned God. What'd you do if the real deal turned up?

Mind how you go,

Night Patrol



It being #TrumpsAmerica, it only seemed right to walk off big steaks and go on patrol. That's right, night patrol, with Blue Combat Team. (BCT)


Watch My Tracer!

There weren't any enemies, luckily for them, but there were lots of lights. Good looking neighborhood; not so long ago it was ghetto. That's changed. Watch out for sticker shock, new arrivals.




We RV'd at a wine store, thanks, gentrification, and bought some claret. Good price and it makes a change, being from France and all. Then back to base.


Less Hood, More Vinters

The dollar stores, tattoo parlors and used tire shops have turned into a restaurant, "Bistro," thank you very much, a bookbinder and a children's shop. I'd be surprised if you could come out of the children's shop without paying less than a set of All Terrains.


Light it Up

Price aside, it's a good development. Less ghetto please, more safe, pleasant neighborhoods to walk about in.


A Typical Druid

Was I armed? That's a secret.

Happy Earth Day!


Everyone loves Earth Day, and no one more so than us at Team LSP. So here's a little Gaia prayer to help us with that.

Our Mother whose body is the Earth,
Blessed are you,
And blessed are all the fruits of your womb.
You give us this day our daily bread,
And we share it with others.
Our Mother whose body is the Earth,
We love you with all our hearts,
And our neighbors as ourselves.

Beautiful, isn't it.
