(Boston.com)   Depending on who you talk to, the infamous Black Mass that was to happen at Harvard was either called off because no one would host it, or looked suspiciously like a normal bar playing Black Sabbath   (boston.com ) divider line

The current president of Harvard is Drew Faust.
I'm surprised they couldn't work out some kind of a deal.

Drunkards gathered in their masses,
Just like students at Black Masses

\ only Ozzy could get away with rhyming "masses" and "Masses"

yes those are all human bones, yes real ones.


the thing that confused me about the whole plan to do this "black mass" is that this was supposedly part of some sort of historical recreation project and even the organizers freely admits there never really WAS such a thing a as black mass except in the fevered imaginations of various witch hunters.  So exactly HOW were they going to "recreate" it?  Especially since most versions generally had the participants commit all seven of the deadly sins during the ceremony


Sounds like one hell of a party though.

I know, right? It's like those "Civil War reenactments" where nobody even gets maimed or killed. Posers.

Religion is CONSTANTLY "recreating" things that never happened or trying to "bring back" tenets and traditions of faith that are brand new.

The other thing about Black Mass is whether you take the original fantasy (as written by christians) or the pagan ceremonies they were insulting/misrepresenting at the time, it's hard to get that many ladies (let alone good-looking ones) to show up for a naked orgy.
