Hell to Pay

Revelation 13:16-18 states: " Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom: let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number. Its number is six threescore six"

There's been numerous interpretations of the 666. There's the 666 as the name, as the mark of commerce, 666 as less than God and there's the cultural and psychological interpretations. The British rock band Iron Maiden rendered their own version in song "Number of the Beast" which is actually very synonymous to their taste in music or at least artistically... But anyway today is June 6, 2006 or 6/6/06 or just 666 depending on your sinister level. And contrary to what some people are saying about today, it isn't another YK2 end of the world, its all just myth. Like the cruel makeshift Nostradamus prophecy about 9/11... Interestingly enough a gambling site has 10-1 odds the world ends today. I suggest reading the fine print before placing a wager because if my logic serves me right, i think you may need to collect your winnings in hell, probably from Lucifer himself (... and don't forget your claim stub).

Did you know that in the State of Michigan, there is a city called "Hell"? I'm not joking, this day 6/6/06 the entire city is having a costume party. Some businesses are even closed. Plus you can purchase property in Hell Michigan for $6.66 per 6 square inches. So you can say you own hell, at least partially. But you'd better pay property taxes on time because if you don't, well lets just say there's hell to pay haha...

And yet another frivolous 666 matter is the remake movie "Omen" with Julia Stiles releasing today 6/6/06. She might be the only reason to go see this one because horror remakes are, uhmm, generally horrible (lol). I guess you can call it clever somehow that the movie releases appropriately on 6/6/06. Of course more apparent, is the inherent publicity that the day incites.

Okay okay last trivial matter. Today, part 2 of the movie Underworld is released. I suppose it is also appropriate that it releases today. It's the battle that ends all battles between the barbaric Lycans and the aristocratic Vampires. If you haven't seen it, the movie isn't great, it may actually suck but Kate Beckinsale shed off a lot of clothing so that alone makes all things worthwhile. In fact if she so much showed a half a nipple it would've been the greatest movie ever made. I know at least three people that would agree to that.

Have a good day...
