Exploring The Mystery Behind Titanic Sinclair, Mars Argo, And That Poppy

What's the truth?

Titanic Sinclair is a musician and video director living in Los Angeles, California. He has worked on projects with Mars Argo and That Poppy that mock celebrity and pop culture. His more notable videos are a collaboration with That Poppy that includes minimalistic dialogues where Poppy stands against a single color screen and repeats certain phrases and ideas to imitate the brainwashed celebrity stereotype. These videos have a certain eerie aura, the creepier ones include Poppy spitting blood and talking to robot “producers” off camera. The character “Poppy” is played by a little-known singer whose name is protected in order to maintain a sense of mystery which fits into the enigma that is her character. The lack of background history and information surrounding both Mars Argo and Poppy allude to the dehumanization of pop stars. In the videos, Poppy mentions how she loves her “handlers” and asks,“Will this protect me?” which point to the possible danger she is in if she breaks her contract, or acts out in a way that does not suit her brand.

The mystery and seemingly cult-like following of these projects spikes their audience’s curiosity into just how deep the rabbit hole goes. This secrecy is carefully protected by Sinclair, who goes to great lengths in order to keep information about Mars Argo and Poppy’s personal lives hidden. In a video entitled Numbers, Poppy recites numbers as a bell dings at seemingly random times. The bells, however, are far from random. Fans of Poppy have recorded each time the bell goes off and it spells out the phone number of someone who had hosted an interview with Poppy before this project gained momentum. In this interview, Poppy breaks her robotic character along with her aura of mystery. It is one of the few recorded videos that portrays Poppy as a real person. The very public release of this phone number is a threat to the interviewer and anyone who dares to reveal Poppy’s true identity or personality.

A video featuring Mars Argo was released 6 months ago on XVTVI’s Youtube channel entitled Everybody Wants it All where she appears to be webcamming with a friend. She says that she is happy to have someone to talk to because she has no one else. At one point in the video, she holds a gun to her head and asks, "this is funny, right?” The video contains a secret message that can only be revealed by playing it backward, reminiscent of the Beatles' famously backmasked songs. The hidden message is revealed to say:

"If you want it all, you cannot be distracted by the illusion you've created. Only when the mind is silent you can see clear enough to enjoy your life and forget about your desires. Your desires are irrelevant.”

While unnerving, slowed down editing occurs towards the end of the video, blood begins to spill from her mouth. Perhaps foreshadowing the content Sinclair will eventually produce with Poppy where the same thing happens? This connection might be a representation of how one pop star can easily disappear from the media and quickly be replaced with another, Mars Argo being replaced with That Poppy. The channel that Mars Argo and Sinclair shared, garbagebagdottv, has been wiped clean with the exception of three videos. Sinclair and Poppy collaborate in unsettling videos on the channel “Poppy” while her music is posted on the channel “ThatPoppyVEVO.” Poppy’s most popular music video, Lowlife, shows satanic imagery as a nod to the Illuminati and the willingness of pop stars to “sell their soul” for wealth and fame. American culture fetishizes celebrities and suggests that fame is the answer to all of our problems. There are tons of videos on youtube that take a stab at getting to the bottom of the Titanic Sinclair, Mars Argo, and That Poppy mystery, however, little true information is found. Mars Argo and Sinclair once ran a Youtube segment called “The Computer Show” which questions consciousness within the realm of social media, the human condition, and the perception of reality in the age of the internet. That Poppy seems to be the continuation of his project with Mars Argo, as both she and That Poppy have a bubblegum pop sound full of catchy hooks and choruses. They have similar aesthetics and are both young, pretty, and blonde- the perceived American ideal. They are carbon copies of each other.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting


Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

Birds have so much personality. While most people think of just robins or sparrows, there are a wide variety of birds with varying appearances, sizes and habitats.

While each student has individual, wonderful qualities, we tend to share some of these great traits with students of a similar study track. You know what they say, after all: Birds of a feather flock together.

Please enjoy this re-imagining of some popular college majors as birds! Feel free to leave a comment on my Facebook wall adding a bird mascot for your own major.
