TO ALL WHO WORSHIP

EVIL’S WAN AND SICKLY LIGHT,

BEWARE POOR OL’ GARDEVIL’S POWER,

HIS EERIE SEERING SIGHT

 

?OKAY?

 

 

At any rate, alarmed and righteously infuriated by the troubling implications of prior awareness of possible trouble prior to the TZ disaster on July 23, 1982, in the twilit and allegorical Steven Spielberg film, MINORITY REPORT (2002), Gary William Wright-the Dream Unraveller-born in North York in July of 1967, making him a moody Cancer Moon Man-the sign of the beautiful, beguiling, dreaming and soothing White Goddess on his shield-raised in North Delta, BC, high school honour student and two time College Diploma recipient-General Studies and Library Technician, respectively-resignedly intrepid ‘Gray Tighwr’ Library and Information Technician at Streetsville Secondary School in Mississauga, Ontario by day, embittered Fantom of the Zone Wars, ghost in the digital machine, real life perseverant Percival and Rogue Jedi at night-half mockingly nicknamed Gardevil, fan with no fear, after Daredevil, the man with no fear, by the real life superheroes who frequented Image Collections, Streetsville’s finest emporium of narrative art, collectibles, cards and games-immediately decided to evade the cyberazzi and, head off to his Sanctum Sanctorum where, drawing upon his original J.D. Jedi Force and Beastmaster mojo, and under the inspiring and protective mantle of the Red, White and True, he ignored his untrustworthy vision and instead used his invisible and Moon guided intuitive sixth sense, exuberant imagination, years of accumululated insight, deductive intelligence and the insistence of memory to decipher and triumph over persistence of vision by patiently peering deep into the festering, guilt stricken and raging depths of the haunted and uneasy hearts,minds and souls of the writers and writer/directors of the dread Zone Wars as expressed in their twilit fiction and film art, in order to finally discover the true meaning of all of this twilit fiction and film art and the truth about the TZ disaster and, with the help of exultant, incandescent, indomitable and transcendent run-on sentences-an exultantly transcendent word stream that is, ironically, beyond words to truly describe and define-hopefully, cleanse the fiction and film art universe, bring harmony back to the Temple Theatre, end the dread allegorical Zone Wars,

and free Renee Chen, Myca Le and Vic Morrow from

the Twilight Zone…

 

forever. 

 

!Forever we say!

 

 

!SKULL WAHAD!

 

!!!!SKAI’HALUD!!!!

 

 

 

By the way, if you are interested in the sort of enlightening and thought provoking books that the world’s foremost Zonebuster would ponder to inspire his own quixotic and spasmodic ‘scholarly’ efforts, here are some of the tomes that I have recently studied:

 

Sleep (2015) by Nino Ricci-an implicit allegorical roast

of David Cronenberg, his life, films and, his recent twilit and allegorical novel, Consumed (2014)

 

Sleeping Beauties (2017) by Moanin’ Owen

and Screamin’ Stephen King

 

Of Dice And Men (2013)

by David M. Ewalt

 

‘…With a grimace, he realized his error.

He wouldn’t find happiness choosing his own adventures;

he’d find it sharing adventures with friends.’ – p. 247

                                                                                     

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff (2018) by Sean Penn
