Link Proliferation: "To join a cuib, an initiate had to suck the blood from self-imposed slashes in the arm of every other member of the nest."
I totally flaked on this last Friday, but I meant to hip you to a great post by Zoe, the amazing blogger of the high strangeness that is Zoe in Wonderland. In the trademarked Zoe style, the post follows a single thread of thought through art, history, religion, and murder, excavating the twisted roots of a Bolivian religious tradition known as "La Diablada." I don't want to ruin it by stepping all over the post's content. Well worth the click. Read on, McDuff.
