They form Babylon, a band that captures the spirit of the age as sex, drugs, and chaos reign in the final years of the American Empire.
This is the beginning of a modern mythology that spills off the page: the ticket to the Party At The World’s End is inside, if you dare to search for it. It starts right here, but it won’t end here-
At Modern Mythology we are engaged in an effort to fund our growing operations through IndieGoGo. This continues our general approach, which manifested itself through active engagement with readers, critics, scholars and an open and open ended invitation to potential collaborators from the very beginning.
In fact, our site has a page inviting those who dare enter to Join Our Cult:
WANTED: Genius Lunatic Mythmakers and Cultural Creators.
The contributor roster here at Modern Mythology is beginning to fill out nicely. However, there is room at the table for a few more if you have fire in your belly and are looking to contribute to a growing collective. What are we?
There is no “we.” But if there were, it’d be a group comprised of situationist collectives, sacred clowns, hive brains, corporate and academic moles and sleeper agents, ontological terrorists, unlicensed psychologists, toxic armchair philosophers, and out-and-out sex and drug fiends. Our books are making their way into classrooms and subway cars, our albums are tunneling into someone’s earholes on the other side of the planet right now. However you want to label us, we’ll take it and keep upping the ante. We’ll use whatever angle will give us the spin we’re looking for at that moment from the media.
Look around our sites and you’ll see we’ve created a large body of work. We feel it’s important that we keep publishing thought-provoking pieces on pop culture philosophy and social commentary, and to keep expanding the scope and ambition of our art and scholarship.The work of Modern Mythology goes beyond comparative religion and philosophy into the core of humanity’s myth making capacity, the very tendencies that allow some to gain power, some to be enslaved, some to shape how every one of us sees the world and more very real and powerful ways Living Myth shapes who we are.
