Illuminati symbolism in James Franco’s ‘Love in the Old Days’ video


Actor James Franco has a band called ‘Daddy’ and they released a video with so much over-the-top satanic and Illuminati symbolism that I don’t even know where to start. It’s almost to the point of being laughable and wondering if this is really shooting for some Illuminati publicity versus it being the real thing. I think Franco’s schooling at Yale perhaps tips the hand towards Illuminati because maybe he’s affiliated with the Skull & Bones somehow, since he was reported to be dating a girl in the Wolf’s Head secret society. All those secret societies are allegedly Illuminati and satanic affiliated, just different masks on the same demon. So here’s some images that the same guy who played Oz in that lovely PG-13 Disney film ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ wants to shove down your subliminal passages.

I’ll also provide a link from James Franco to Charles Manson if you sit tight, it’s pretty wild.


The entire thing is a satanic ritual, but the video starts with the theme of the candle and flame, which is the Illuminati symbol meaning the “illuminated” ones. Lucifer was the light-bearer and devil, so the satanic rituals are sure to include the flame throughout:

There’s also that classic black and white checkered Freemasonry temple floor in the video too:

Like we’ve seen in a slew of other videos in the past year or so (Kesha’s “C’mon”, Miley Cyrus “Decisions”, Kreayshawn’s “Go Hard”, and Lil Wayne’s “My Homies Still” to name a few), there are numerous shots of these pagan animal heads and costumes. It’s most likely a reference to the occult worship of anthropomorphic beings like the ancient Egyptians used to do (as seen on their glyphs). And OF COURSE you KNOW we’ve got some more of the owl/Moloch/Ba’al too:

And a panda bear we see in other music videos (that Kreayshawn “Go Hard” video namely):

There are shots and flashes of odd occult things, like crosses, zodiacs (just like in Christina Aguilera’s “Your Body” video), numerology, etc.

Here’s a pattern of a two-dimensional dodecahedron (a 12 sided 3-D polygon), which has occult values in that the 12 sides relate to the 12 signs of the zodiac. The dodecahedron is symbolic of the universe with the sun at the center in these occult circles. Feel free to chime in if you know what all those numeric values mean:

Here’s one thing that I don’t understand; perhaps someone can comment in and say what this means. They show this same shot several times of the girl with her hand held out by this brass object, what does that mean? Commenter ‘Jon’ posted up a suggestion that it is a Theremin instrument (which I had never heard of before), and after looking it up I’d have to say that perhaps this is it. The instrument is played by keeping your hands in proximity to the loop somehow, I’ll post more about this below, because if it is in fact a Theremin, than it supports this weird Charles Manson link.

If you listen to they lyrics of the song you can hear that they’re talking about falling in love like how they did in the old days, which is talking about ancient rituals, pagan worship, and mostly satanic worship. There are flashes of Aleister Crowley embedded during the ceremony in case you had any doubts:

And here’s a part of the ritual where we see the skull, which leads me to believe there is some Yale Skull & Bones action going on. There’s also a serpent on the table, reminiscent of that David Icke reptilian and serpent worship theories these Illuminati types are into:

The guy playing the priest is Kenneth Anger, who has a history steeped in the occult and satanic worship. One of Anger’s films called Lucifer Rising from the ’70s included an actor and musician Bobby Beausoleil, who you might recall being affiliated with the Manson family. Beausoleil murdered Gary Hinman and wrote “Political Piggy” on the wall with Hinman’s blood. He did this on orders from Manson (arguably, but basically that’s what happened). Beasusoleil had a band also. What was the name of that band you ask? The Magick Powerhouse of Oz. Sounds oddly similar to the Great and Powerful Oz that Franco plays. Not even six degrees of separation between Charles Manson and James Franco now. Hollywood really does love their satanic worship.

And yet another odd peculiarity is that Franco is going to star and direct in an upcoming film called Beautiful People that is about hair stylist Jay Sebring. This biopic will include the murder of Sebring by the Manson family when they broke into the Tate residence at 10050 Cielo Drive and proceeded to slay in an abhorrent fashion. Add to that the occult basis of Wizard of Oz and author Frank L. Baum’s ties to the Theosophical Society, and it’s clear there are darker forces involved here.

Franco was also part of a Crowley ritual that took place in Los Angeles with Kenneth Anger and Noot Seear (Twilight: New Moon actress):

In conjunction with the current exhibition For the Martian Chronicles, L&M Arts is pleased to present The Bartzabel Working, a performance by filmmaker and artist Brian Butler. Based on a ceremonial evocation of the spirit of Mars, first written and performed in London in 1910 by the famed British occultist Aleister Crowley, the ritual later became part of Los Angeles history in 1946 when Jet Propulsion Laboratory rocket scientist and Crowley protégé Jack Parsons conducted his own version of this rite, with the intention of placing a martial curse on a pre-Scientology L. Ron Hubbard.

For his reinterpretation of this historical performance, Butler will conjure Bartzabel, the spirit of Mars, evoking the site that was once home to the late sci-fi author Ray Bradbury and currently comprises L&M Arts. The ritual will have Butler as Chief Magus, leading a cast drawn from his upcoming feature film King Death and featuring Henry Hopper as Assistant Magus, Noot Seear as Magus Adjuvant, and James Franco as Material Basis, the vessel though which the spirit of Mars manifests.


Here’s Noot Seear from Twilight:

Getting back to that Theremin loop, Wikipedia gives us a strong occult history of the instrument through its use by Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page bought a house that Aleister Crowley once performed satanic rituals to bring evil spirits back from the dead in).

While The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” features an instrument that sounds much like a Theremin, in fact the sound is made by an instrument called the Tannerin.[29] Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin used a variation of the theremin (minus the loop) during performances of “Whole Lotta Love” and “No Quarter” throughout the performance history of Led Zeppelin, an extended multi-instrumental solo featuring theremin and bowed guitar in 1977, as well as the soundtrack for Death Wish II released in 1982. Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones also used the instrument on the group’s 1967 albums “Between the Buttons” and “Their Satanic Majesties Request”

And here’s Franco giving us the one-all seeing eye salute:



And here’s a picture of Anger with his shirt off, showing us his love for Lucifer by getting it tatt’ed on his chest:

Which he also has an iconic jacket with the word on the back you might recognize:

Lucifer Rising jacket

Here’s that Lucifer Rising:

There’s a full in-depth post about the entire conspiracy behind the music industry and the Satanic roots here at:

In his book, The Ultimate Evil, [1b] investigator author Maury Terry writes that between 1966 and 1967, a Satanic-group the Process Church Cult [PCC], sought to recruit the Rolling Stones and the Beatles.  He also goes on to implicate the PCC in the Charles Manson and Son of Sam [David Berkowitz] multiple murders.  A key link between the Rolling Stones and the PCC, is Kenneth Anger, a follower of Aleister Crowley the founding father of modern day Satanism.  Anger, born in 1927, and a child Hollywood movie star, became a devoted disciple of Crowley.  Crowley died in 1947 allegedly due to complications of his heroin addiction, but before dying, Terry alleges he succeeded in establishing Satanic-covens in many US cities including Hollywood.  Anger now 84 years old, like Crowley, is a Magus and appears to be “the heir” to Crowley and a follower of Thelma.  Anger was 20 years old when Crowley died.  In that same year, 1947, Anger was already producing and directing films which variously merge surrealism with homoeroticism and the occult.  During 1966-1967, when the PCC is reported to be recruiting in London, Anger was also there

Kenneth Anger

And finally, here’s the NSFW actual video from James Franco’s band ‘Daddy’:

And just for funsies, here’s a video on Youtube that claims Franco is using MK ULTRA/MONARCH mind programming to influence this female at an art exhibition. I don’t know the first thing about mind control but his gestures are awfully eccentric, so perhaps it’s some form of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming; which everyone claims President Obama uses in his speeches):

  1. I’m not sure what the meaning, or symbolism, is when they stick their hand out towards the brass objects but i think the object is a Theremin. Perhaps it’s symbolizing a sort of channeling of a being/spirit?

    • Jon- Good call, I believe you might be on the right track. I’ll add that info into the post, maybe someone who is more familiar with this type of thing can chime in.

  2. The “O” in the Oz movie logo looks like the loop of the theremin.

  3. I saw the movie, Oz:the great and powerful lasts night. I noticed a few instances of seemingly occult symbols. First I noticed when he was in the cave with the fire witch Oz threw out a white dove. Second I noticed when being chased by the evil witches flying baboons Oz ran by a statue. The position of the statues hand reminded me of Baphomet, a few frames later a baboon runs into the statue finalizing the Baphomet with wings and tail.

  4. I’ve built and used multiple theremins; that COULD be one however, mine were far more crude and were completely vertical as the conductor of choice is usually an antenna… as your hand moves closer or further away from whatever metal conductor you’re using, it creates an eerie, ethereal sound which either increases or decreases in pitch and intensity (listen to the song by Portishead ‘Humming’ and you’ll hear this distinctive sound immediately). THAT does not look familiar to me at all but who knows? I COULD be wrong in my opinions at this point in time but I feel that a multitude of ‘celebrities’ use this symbolism simply to attain ‘acceptance’ or to assimilate into MSM and to (in their intent) ‘substantiate’ their ‘art’.

    I’m also interested in the fact that, *I* myself LOVE skulls, anything with horns, darker imagery, etc however have NOTHING to do with Baphomet/Saturn worship/Luciferian bs/MK Programming, etc. Some artists are aware and CHOOSE to be ‘puppets’, some follow suit in the hopes that they will be ‘accepted’ and reap the same benefits of other, more mainstream and accepted/promoted celebrities and others… maybe they just dig the imagery? I just hate to see how most of the people who speak out/point out this imagery (and I DO respect and appreciate it) really draw at straws with SOME minor details. Stick to the actual imagery, stick to the facts and don’t get caught up in the silly details. I dig Hieronymus Bosch paintings and again love some darker imagery but not ALL images are used with intent… also, I’d simply like to note that some of these ‘celebrities’ have NO idea what they’re doing, don’t understand the impact of it all and are simply following the record label and/or director’s instruction (esp. if you consider the Monarch programming and brainwashing these people have endured).

    As for Baphomet and Christmas: look far back to the traveling troupes of barbarians who (around Xmas time) would show up at people’s houses, insist to be allowed inside to ‘perform’ this wild beast man/virginal woman/jester-esque ‘show’ and then would demand gifts – that’s yet another bit to add to the origins of Xmas. Santa Claus/St. Nick & the Baphomet character were derived from the ‘wild beast man’. The Catholic church has jumped on this and made it their own – I don’t trust the bible at all, nor any form of organized religion – although I DO believe that every human has the right to their beliefs, so long as they’re peaceful and non-violent in this respect.

  8. Notice he is wearing Anna Nicole’s place of death shirt?
    He looks terrible:( not a strong man. He lost his beauty.

  9. I was thinking the brass instrument kind of looks like a shepherds crook? controlling the masses by being the shepherd, christ is the shepherd and satan comes to counterfeit everything god does, therefore satan comes to be the shepherd of this earth as he is known for being the God of this world? Just a thought…..

  11. It’s a Theremin that’s been played. No doubt. The vertical rod is the pitch antenna and the horizontal loop for volume control.Looks like a Moog Vanguard to me.
    never been aware of the occult side of this instrument.

  12. Another few interesting facts about the Theremin …

    Anton LaVey was quite the adept theremin player! I remember learning that he was the first theremin player registered with the Musician Union. His playing has been used/sampled on MANY songs in several genres.

    The instrument is used in the scores for so many Hollywood films as well. Lots of the movies or TV relating to Sci-Fi use the theremin for music or sound fx. If the Illuminati had to choose an official instrument, theremin would have to be on the ballot!

    From Satanist ties to Star Trek to “Big Bang Theory”…the theremin seems to be in the background since it’s invention.

    Speaking of which…Leon Theremin invented several things related to the theremin including an espionage listening device that was the predecessor to the RFID chip everyone links to the Illuminati or New World Order, etc.

    So, I’d say this strange musical instrument is something you’d probably enjoy learning more about!

  14. Theremin – Sheldon – autism – reptilian brain

    In the old days, people used to think that autistic people were demonically possessed.

    There is an episode of the Big Bang Theory in which Sheldon plays the Theremin. Sheldon is obviously autistic. Autism may have something to do with the reptilian brain being dominant.
