The Biggest Motherfucking Underground Legend in the Entire History of the Universe?
If you ain’t in the loop, you can’t get the joke. And who gets the last laugh?
This extension to the XV anniversary post of “Motherfucking Earthquake Wave Nirvana” begins with a 2004 video of a comedy skit from the MTV Movie Awards, featuring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn with Peter Jackson, the filmmaker from Das Steel’s original hometown, where the Best Picture winning movie “Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” was produced.
The two posts shine new light on the weave of connecting threads which draw on loads of elements and exploits, most importantly the passage from 9/11 to Boxing Day 2004. It’s a fascinating exploration of fire from the underground, earthquakes, oceans, water, waves and mass graves and attempts to connect with the Maori god Ruaumoko.
From Maori warrior chiefs and prophets, to diamonds, Napoleon and Brad Pitt; and on through Das Steel’s first ever description of why in December 2001, just as “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” was premiering in Wellywood, he set off the fire alarms in Te Papa (The Museum of New Zealand) before taking a hatchet to a large heavy glass display cabinet to lay claim to Te Rauparaha’s American foot soldier’s sword; and on into tales of death-defying car crashes, working underground, building hovercrafts and hydroelectric generators, crossing the Tasman, fucking mothers, earthquakes, and the destruction of Christchurch and cathedral spires.
Boxing Day 2019 was the XV anniversary of the event that was Motherfucking Earthquake Wave Nirvana. It coincides nicely with the Mother Goddess/ Mother Earth worship themes that explode out of the 2019 FZDB mission.
