Pop Culture and Freemasonry: Angels and Demons Teaser Trailer

Today, my wife pointed me to the new Teaser Trailer for Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. Unless you have been living under a boulder, I am sure you have at least heard of or have read this book. Dan Brown spins a tale of the Illuminati threatening the delicate balance between faith and science. As can be seen in the trailer, Tom Hanks is back as Robert Langdon, the Harvard Professor of Symbology (and mullets?) to solve more mysteries in the Eternal City, Rome.

As Chris Hodapp reported, Doubleday has entered panic mode as Dan Brown has yet to present a manuscript for his Masonic thriller, The Solomon Key, after 5 years of "working on it." Here is my guess: Dan Brown had the intention of writing his book until he saw the disgusting amounts of money that he would be paid from movie royalties and found a nice beach chair to began tanning writing. Here is hoping that Dan Brown doesn't get a nasty sunburn.

(Why did I post this video? Internet Superstar was one of my favorite video podcasts available but sadly, Martin Sargent has been laid off from Revision3 as well as many others. I am posting this as a tribute to this funny, irreverent show.)

I thought it was 'cos our Zeta Reticulan overlords used the mind control ray on him to make him forget about the Freemasons.

We all know it was the aliens in conjunction with the reverse vampires sponsored by the rand corporation, and stop blowing our cover! :)

I wonder if he'll include the Reptilian aliens that control the Government like in the SciFi classic "V"? That's a strange but popular conspiracy theory these days... I wonder if Marc Singer started it as a publicity stunt?

Anyway, speaking of those wacky conspiracy theorists...It appears that your Obama Shriners post is becoming very popular and making its way around the Conspiracy Theory corners of the WWW.
