Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips will be on Jay Leno tonight, children of the Staircase.
Wayne was harassed by Scientologists after working with Beck Hansen just like Wit and Mr. Wit Of The Staircase were. (Mr. Wit, aka Jeremy Blake did the Sea Change album cover for Mr. Hansen.)
And then there was the harassment and censorship of the South Park guys. There's a political element to this harassment, children, and an artistic community like Hollywood is too fragile to support this kind of thuggishness.
See Tom Cruise's meeting with the indicted Scooter Libby:
And with former State Department head Richard Armitage:
After this cult's parading their weirdness around me and Mr. Wit for years, we have come to realize that the whole Scientology thing seems entagled with the CIA's use of cults during the late sixties to destroy the California counter culture.
