The only kind of star that doesn't have 5 points is the star of David. And that's just gross.

ok, so after i said that shit about the Chicago flag and what not and then realizing that our flag has 6 points and then seeing sage's quote above i did some diggin to find out why our flag has the star of David (4 of them!) on it........and i found this out....
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The six-pointed Marian star is the proper star polygon for Roman Catholic usage. The Marian star is a symmetric six-pointed star polygon. It has six concave vertices and six convex vertices, which together equal a total of twelve vertices. It is currently unknown to the editors of this article as to the precise proportions of the Marian star, if indeed it has precise proportions, but its approximate notation appears to be 6/2.5. Its standard spoke ratio is approximately .4, but it may also be depicted with a spoke ratio as low as .333[1]. Like the hexagram (in Christian symbolism the Star of David), it can be formed through the inverted or extraverted extension of lines from a regular hexagon and, if its points are truncated, it becomes a regular hexagon. Unlike the hexagram, the intersection of inverted or extraverted lines does not result in a regular hexagon, and only half of the points used in the formation of the star lines are vertices of a regular hexagram (the other half of the points are on the sides of the hexagon approximately half-way between the vertices of the hexagon)."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
anyways, all that jibber jabber to say emphatically that the 6 pointed stars on our flag are Marian stars and NOT the star of David.......not that it matters



star 1 reps Fort Dearborn - 1939
star 2 reps The Great Chicago Fire - 1871
star 3 reps The World Expo - 1893
star 4 reps The Century of Progress - 1933

useless information that nobody really cares about but i had to share with someone.......

My Live Evel order came today finally! Lord knows what the providence post office was doing all of that time.

Mine came autographed with an ll cool j tape and some other goodies.

I love this EP it's got almost all of my favorite Failure tracks. And what pretty art!

Also the story on the back is extremely fascinating to me. It's very valis, but also an interesting example of invokation at work. Not sure exactly how conscious that was, but it crosses very conveniently with most shamanistic traditions of possession--which helps to underscore that artists are magicians. And the whole world is words.
