No one understands the wonder of the Universal World Church better than Jodi Wille of Dilettante Press. I was fortunate enough to witness their Christmas spectacular before the website went down. One day I will have to investigate whether or not the church is still there on Lake Street. Enjoy untold thrills watching Youtube videos of Miss Velma in action, "...watch Miss Velma, who is a crack shot, typify this with a pistol using live ammunition. Keep your eyes on the balloons, high above Miss Velma, 65 feet away. After this, she will play the hand organ"

I am obsessed with Gary Spivey. His hair hypnotizes me and gets rid of the dark energy in my head. He actually says, "If you would like a live reading, I don't know where I am right now, but I have some amazing psychics..." Well, if you don't know where you are, Gary, who does? Who does?

Harkening back to last week's album cover posts, we have the amazing world of Purgatorio. Besides trippy Christian album covers, they collect all religious oddities, including articles, videos and posts from other websites.

Did you ever wonder who that guy was hanging over the stage at The House of Blues? None other than Sai Baba, an East Indian religious leader with powers to materialize, emit bright light, turn one substance into another, and most commonly, to "manifest" items out of thin air. The one video I saw of him manifesting, he sifted through sand until he came up with a small statue. While on the website, don't forget to get a screen saver and make sure to try your skill at the word search puzzle! Sai Baba is manifesting words in your head.
