This is a question I'm going to answer for the neophytes, while hopefully getting a chuckle out of both new and old friends.
I get asked a lot "What is Feast of Hate and Fear?"
Let me start by explaining what FHF was.
It was a fanzine publication from 1990 until 1998.
A small portion of it, plus massive amounts of new material, can now be found on the web, so that leaves me to answer what Feast of Hate and Fear is today.
Currently, FHF is a website containing some of the articles found in the original 'zine, as well as some newer pieces, a virtual library holding rare texts and obscure material, underground music and movie reviews, band and artist interviews, an outsider music archive, an internet music show, and a little more here and there.
If you're still confused, then maybe everyone should be asking, "What is Feast of Hate and Fear all about?"
Honestly, if you have to ask, you really shouldn't worry yourself anyhow, because you didn't bother reading... and that's what FHF is, and was, all about: reading. It's about firing off synapses. It's about working out those rarely used neurons to help you think for yourself.
Most of my articles are written to make you laugh, while trying to make you think, and the archived library is a hodgepodge of propaganda from the left to the right, and from those that think themselves to be good to those that label themselves evil - all to help you see both sides of an argument and help you draw your own conclusions.
There is one page that can best sum up what Feast of Hate and Fear really is all about, and it's where you get to sniff my logs.
Let me explain: my hosting company sends me the skinny on pirated links and search engine results. I've learned quickly that some of the Googlers out there are twisted fuckers. I post the funnier / weirder searches along with what the search engine (Yahoo, MSN, Google, etc) mistakenly sent them to somewhere on the Feast of Hate and Fear website.
Here are a few highlights...
Yahoo search: why did charles manson get involved
What they found: Charles Manson - Your Children
It's really odd to see people asking questions in a search engine. Most everyone knows that they produce pages with word searches, not answer questions. Here, the question actually is, "Get involved with what?"
This surfer found Manson's closing comments from his murder / conspiracy trail. Charles Miles Manson was tried for the August 1969 murders of the Tate and LaBianca households, which began June 1970, and lasted until January of 1971, where he was found guilty of conspiracy and sentence to death (which was commuted to life in prison).
Google search: What can you conclude about your distance from the mirror and the size of image you see? Is there a difference in how much of yourself you can see? Can you see more of yourself standing farther away from the mirror? How tall a mirror do you need to see yourself from the top of your head to your toes? If you wink your left eye does your image wink the right or left eye back at you? Finally is there some way that you can cause your image to wink the same eye as you?
What they found: José Luis Jordán Peña - The UMMO Papers
Wow! Speaking of questions to a search engine. I think the best part of this whole thing is before the last question, they wrote "finally" like the search engine may get tired of his ranting.
Anyhow, that search brought this person to the UMMO Papers, which was to Spanish UFO researchers what Area 51 is to UFOlogists in the States, and was first documented by UFO sightings in 1966 & 1967 with the symbol: )+(
Later came the manuscript (1968), now known as the UMMO Papers, mailed by supposed anonymous aliens, and were also signed: )+(
The applied physics and mathematics were slightly ahead of their time, so it fooled many though it was a practical joke by José Luis Jordán Peña and a group of collaborators. UMMO is supposed to be the phonetic pronunciation of the Spanish word for "smoke".
MSN search: best place on the forearm to cut without bleeding to death
What they found: John Minnery - How to Kill
I don't know what trick this person's trying to mess with, but I have a sneaky suspicion that it's a guy searching for some dramatic bullshit he'll be trying to pull on an ex-girlfriend.
Much of my website can get me in trouble. Like posting John Minnery's out-of-print, six-volume set, How to Kill, later published as the more compact-yet-wimply-titled. Kill Without Joy - also out-of-print. Read it and learn.
Ask search: pros and cons of zones deliveries with trucking company
What they found: William Pierce - The Turner Diaries
This is a truly priceless misdirection, as this poor fellow is trying to get info on how to run his company as smoothly as possible, but winds up getting white power propaganda.
The Turner Diaries was written by Aryan Nations head William Pierce under the pen name, Andrew Macdonald in 1975. The FBI calls it "a right wing bible", and though it's just racist fiction, it could have inspired the Oklahoma bombing.
Dogpile search: the life of the cumelion the animal that disguise itself
What they found: Noble Drew Ali - The Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple
I don't know what a "cumelion" is but it sounds gooey, yet fierce.
Noble Drew Ali (Timothy Drew) was born in 1886 and almost nothing was known about him until he formed the Moorish Science Temple in 1913 (with chapters in several states). The Temple of Moorish Science is a strange blend of Islamic and Buddhist study, Masonic ritual and black power, later adopted by Elijah Muhamed and his Nation of Islam (minus the Buddhism and Freemasonry). He mysteriously died in 1928.
AOL search: de back estree boys
What they found: Pauline Reage - The Owl
Okay, assa fully-fledged spic, ima embarrassed to eben chair dis one wis alla jew out der.
"The Owl" is Chapter Four from French author Anne Desclos' 1954 erotic novel The Story of O, which she wrote under the pen name Pauline Réage.
The story is based on letters to her lover, as well as the work of the Marquis de Sade. Though tame by today's standards, it is about a woman who is taught to be a sex slave, and it brought obscenity charges against the publisher.
MSN search: seminar report on chemical industry helped by small invisible tube
What they found: Leonard C. Lewin - Report From Iron Mountain
If the tube is invisible, how did the chemical industry even find it - let alone develop it?
Report From Iron Mountain is a book, which claimed to be a transcript of a conspiratorial meeting of the world's most powerful elite inside Virginia's Iron Mountain. It was published by Dial Press, a division of Simon & Schuster, in 1967. The introduction material was by Leonard C. Lewin - who admitted in 1972 to fabricating the entire thing.
Google search: is watching children getting spanked sexual gratification
What they found: J. H. Kellogg - The Solitary Vice
Another question to a search engine. Sadly, there is no answer other than in that person's own head. They should be asking themselves, not Google.
"Solitary Vice" is Chapter 9 from Plain Facts for Old and Young: Embracing the Natural History and Hygiene of Organic Life by John Harvey Kellogg, and is an anti-masturbation tract. J. H. Kellogg ran the Battle Creek Sanitarium, which was a health spa based on the teachings of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. In 1897, Kellogg started the Sanitas Food Company to produce their now famous whole cereal, with the help of his brother Will Keith Kellogg.
