Idea

I want to see a second Mask sequel, one where Loki meets Eris and they compete for a while and then fall in love. I think Eris and Loki would have a lot in common.

Well it's true that according to the mythology both of them are evil. But remember that Eris is the goddess of discord and chaos, which when you're looking at what the Greeks meant, was essentially synonymous with destruction and death. Loki, on the other hand, was more of a con artist with a stake in the end of the world.

Not to mention that Loki is married with kids and Eris is hideously disfigured.

Mythology is written by those who worship the Deities who have the most power. The establishment, in other words. The Christian establishment would have you believe Satan is evil and literally horny. But I've met him, and he is neither.

Tricksters are often misunderstood and reviled by those who don't like being the butt of their jokes. Having also met Loki and Eris, I assure you neither is evil nor disfigured.

And RE: Eris... you seriously need to read the Principia Discordia.

Not all trickster gods are evil in mythology. Look at Coyote. The point is that chaos (Eris) caused the death of hundreds of thousands in Greece at various intervals in history and ... well, I don't know as much about viking history, but try to remember that Loki has a stake in Ragnarok.

The gods are symbols throughout history for how human beings interact with their surroundings. I don't deny you've met gods who called themselves and were perhaps validly Eris and Loki - but these weren't the Loki and Eris the viking and greek peoples were talking about.

I've read Principia. I found it funny, but ultimately a line of uninteresting bullshit.

The Hell Law says that Hell is reserved exclus-
ively for them that believe in it. Further,
the lowest Rung in Hell is reserved for them
that believe in it on the supposition that
they'll go there if they don't.

I never said Discordianism didn't have good parts. But so does EVERYTHING. The Sermon on Ethics and Love is Discordia's version of Sermon on the Mount.

But I don't think that Christianity is very worthy either. Discordianism is a wonderful parody of religion, but it is not a religion.

As I said ... I've read it. The whole thing. In the long term, I never developed anything against it ... but as a religion, I have the same feelings toward as I do any organized faith, and as a spirituality, it's so varied from person to person that I don't care.

I don't identify with it. It's a book of humorous stories. That's all.

What? There's a The Mask 3? I hated the second one. Eeee!

There's no Mask 3 yet.

I LOVED the second Mask. Okay, didn't care for Jamie Kennedy's performance when he wore the Mask, but Loki and the baby and the dog made up for that.
