The reason for that is Shangri-Hell is now being run by media moguls &amp their corrupt press. In an info age Shangri-Hell has it really is own international media running the show – Shangri-Hell International Tv (SHITV) which has the monopoly on every media outlet in the location which is now overrun with transmitters, roving reporters, daytime television and all spilling their lies to brainwash the masses. As for the other side of heaven&amp hell this year Shangri-Heaven is getting redeveloped into exclusive luxury real estate – The Intoleranch!

Shangri-Hell International Television (SHITV) has the monopoly on all media outlets, plus a new HQ to develop much more mind-controlling trite to make you feel better about yourselves. With the improve of media influence and technologies, a new movement of individuals power is rising. Utilizing art, music and a fuck ton of ‘likes’ the men and women are claiming back their voices and power, hacking into the systems that handle them, in search of the ultimate truth.”

Shangri-La’s inventive director, Kaye Dunnings commented, “Shangri-La holds a mirror up to the masses, difficult men and women in politics and play. Generating conversations, force-feeding the senses, expanding minds and opening hearts. There are no spectators. This year’s theme explores the media in all its ugliest forms and asks folks to seek out the truth, not to believe what they see, hear or study.”

I am also a enormous junglist so the set of the weekend may possibly properly be Roni, Adam F and Bryan G back to back in Heaven.”
