You can file this under many things, but may I suggest either “Drugs are a hell of a drug” or “Names I haven’t thought about since my 10 Things I Hate About You tape exploded in the VCR”. But if either of those are full, I guess you could also throw this into the file marked “Bitch, why the fuck are you dressed like a down-and-out juggler???”
Former 90s teen heartthrob Andrew Keegan told Vice (via Page Six) that he’s created his own religion called Full Circle, because I guess Scientology needed some crazy competition. Andrew created the “conscious social movement” in Venice Beach to “provide an experimental environment designed to creatively expand consciousness through visual and performing arts, movement classes, workshops, forums and healing therapies.” So it’s like arts and crafts and healing crystals? Sort of. But like, 10 times more hippie ju-ju and a million times more fucking WEIRD. Andrew explains how it all started:
Keegan says he had a revelation after being attacked by gang members in Venice Beach on March 11, 2011 — the same day the tsunami hit Japan. The timing of those events would later reveal its power and significance in how “synchronicity” helped him discover his true calling.
“I had a moment where I was looking at a street lamp and it exploded,” he explained. “That was a weird coincidence. At a ceremony, a heart-shaped rose quartz crystal was on the altar, and synchronistically, this whole thing happened. It’s a long story, but basically the crystal jumped off the altar and skipped on camera. That was weird.”
Keegan explains that these were some of the incidents that led him to conclude that “the mission is to take the war out of our story, which is essentially peace, but activated peace.”
Still confused? You should be! I’m as high as a fucking kite after reading that. I still have no idea what the hell Full Circle is. Thankfully, they made a video (YAAAASSSS) to explain their movement a bit better.
Of COURSE that’s the video they made. It’s as if Urban Outfitters started a religion with an enchanted bag of mushrooms, a pair of devil sticks, and a come-to-life drug rug using start up capital borrowed from the drug rug’s trust fund. It’s like if Coachella was a cult for hipsters (“It’s not???” – Vanessa Hudgens).
And I really want to know what that dog at the 0:41 mark thinks of this mess. Never mind, his doggy side-eye says it all.
