Goddess Envy

With all the "Goddess" connecting going on this week, I figured I'd pass a little of my own love her way via The Sisters of Mercy. Have an "insightful" weekend everyone...

"Temple of Love" featuring the sublime siren Ofra Haza (RIP)

Still from Gilliam's "Brothers Grimm" starring Heath Ledger...notice the image bottom right?

Sisters of Mercy - Such a Great band!
Floodland is a Masterpiece.

Christopher Loring Knowles said...

Check out Barry Chamish's site for his theories on the death of Ofra Haza.

I've never heard this song. I'll have to look it up- I gave up on the Sisters when Tony James joined.

Atlantean's stuff about Heathcliff, now I see at Secret Sun , a video of kate Bush who sang 'Heathcliff'
Crowleys Book of the Law was written over 3 days - April 8,9 & 10, 1904
while Bucky-Fuller began writing 'No More 2nd Hand God' on one of those 3 days but in 1940.
Reading articles I noticed Looking Glass and it occurred to me as LG, via the letter/numbers it = 30+3=33

That picture blows me away. Was Terry Gilliam a closet Sisters of Mercy fan?

I agree Steve! It was actually the first CD I bought along with Joy Division.

Christopher: I knew there was something to Ofra's death. thanks for the tip on where to look! What? not a Sigue Sigue Sputnik fan either???

aferrismoon: GREAT info as always. Kate Bush EXCELLENT!!!!

Thuth: you know, I have NO idea why it is there...when Gavin posted that pic. I immediately was drawn to the logo...whcih Gavin claims is the Production Company logo...still trying to confirm that or track it down??? Anyone...?

Todd I might be wrong....

I was looking at it again and the name "merciful release group" appears under the logo just after i took the snap...

I think it could be something to do with whoever made the torrent. I downloaded it.

it might not be but it looks that way to me now that i think about it.
