'They were injected with a poison'

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 10, 2014, 9:20 PM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


The Jonestown massacre was once the single deadliest deliberate mass loss of life in America, a feat that was only later matched by the 9/11 attacks.

Why am I bringing this grim topic up? Well, because I kept hearing this quote on occasions. It's some unknown preacher recounting the story of Jim Jones' former attorney, Sir Lionel Luckhoo, who revealed Jones' hypocrisy as a supposed Christian preacher. I don't know the source of this quote, nor the name of this preacher whose audio was recorded. One thing's for certain, it's apparently quite popular in the electronic dance scene. It was used in Praga Khan's "Injected with a Poison", Douglas' "Jonestown", etc. The entire 2-minute quote can be heard in its unedited entirety in Zoviet France's "Ram", which I believe was where Praga Khan, Douglas and several other electronic musicians got that quote from.

Recently, while listening to a psytrance set on Trance.fm, I heard that quote again -- I believe that, based from searching on Beatport, that psytrance track I've heard was Splattered Implant's and Check-MATE's "Poison". It's strangely addictive. :wow: It's what led me into researching about the Jonestown massacre and writing this journal entry.

I think it was just how courageous and energetic that unknown preacher's voice was when he ranted about Jones' hypocrisy that caught the interest of several electronic musicians. The anger, the dismay, etc. just how passionate he was while giving his sermon. Kinda like the imams here in our Friday prayers. It's too bad that we will probably never know the identity of this unknown preacher, this quote that we kept hearing in the electronic music scene.

The fifth stage of grief by MarwanGreenCritter
The fifth stage of grief
All these bashing against this new DA logo inspired me to draw this pic.

I don't like this new logo, either. :disbelief: In fact, I really miss the old logo... :depressed: It's just... what deviantART is. However, the way people reacted to this new logo... it makes me question. The copyright theft accusation (some Russian website called Platzkart), the fact that it resembled a percentage sign, a not-equal sign, some Nazi symbol, etc.

When I found out about the logo change, I went through all stages of the Kübler-Ross Model. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression...

And now, this. I accept the logo as it is. And let's face it: all these bashing and whining won't change anything. Somehow, DA has chosen this freaky abomination as their new logo, and this is the logo that we're gonna be stuck with for a long time. That is, until someday, when they decided to change their minds again, or Platzkart decided to file a legal action for their logo...

Guess it's time to boldly face the future. :shrug:

deviantART's new logo

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 4, 2014, 3:16 PM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


What do you think? Like every changes to this website, personally, I find it difficult to adapt to this change. I don't like this new logo. :disbelief: Already I'm starting to miss the old logo. =(

Oh well... I decided to edit my journal header image to reflect this new logo. :shrug: It's... kinda a little awkward now, but it'll do.

Update: Okay, yeah, the new logo is cool, sort of. It's not "suck" in any way -- I've seen even simpler logos than this one that also looks just as awesome. Just because I don't like it doesn't mean it sucks. I just miss the old one, that's all. :dead:

Update #2: I redesigned my journal header again. Now it looks so much nicer with the new logo resized bigger this time, and the elements moved around to accommodate. =) This is the new final header design I will use in all of my future journal entries.

I have first seen you in :icondcleadboot:'s animation of Alex's birthday then on one of his journal entries.  After having an interest in seeing your art, I have found you very amazing and now will watch you.  I hope to get along with you very much; I think I have a liking to Marwan's design~. :iconembarrasedplz:
