A Magical Drive in Tasmania with Gordon White from Rune Soup?

"The conscious mind allows itself to be trained like a parrot, but the unconscious does not—which is why St. Augustine thanked God for not making him responsible for his dreams." - Carl Jung
I had no idea who Jordan Peterson was, but as soon as Gordon mentions that he is doing a drive video, I'm in the passenger seat like a dog with its head out the window and taking it all in.
I made the You Tube full screen and then just sat back and went along for the ride.
Luckily my office chair is like a car seat as well, because that sure makes it a bit more VR.
My white cockatoo statue in my living room
I read Gordon's post 'SAINT AUGUSTINE AND THE PARROT' yesterday just after a massive flock of white cockatoos flew over my home.
The crow on my back fence yesterday
Unfortunately I didn't get to my camera and switch it on in time to catch the massive flock flying over my roof, but the racket these cockatoos made brought my crow friend to my back fence to see what was going on, so at least I had my camera all fired up when the crow landed in front of me. 
I like how as soon as Gordon says at around the 20 and a half minute mark that, “this is a chaos magick blog and podcast”, a flock of birds fly over his ute (pick-up).
Not parrots by the looks, but it was still kind of magical to me.

Anyway, if you like drive videos like I do, sit back, full screen it, relax and enjoy the ride.
I guess I owe you some petrol money now, Gordon?-)

Is Mark Frost the Red Lens in the 'Twin Peaks' Spectacle?

Pages from 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks'
After reading Mark Frost's two books 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' and 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' it became clear to me that if the Frost/Lynch writing/director partnership was a pair of 3-D spectacles, then Mark Frost would be the red lens and David Lynch would be the blue lens.
50 Years of Mr.Freedom and Rosemary's Baby and 40 Years of Halloween?
An interview with Mark Frost
Watching the second season of 'Twin Peaks' again I think I see where Mark Frost/David Lynch got the idea for Dr. Amp's gold s#it digging shovel from.
