Sleeping dragon awakes?
The Chinese, in keeping with their orgasmic display of old and new during the 2008 Olympic Opening ceremony would thus continue the trend during it's closing ceremonies [CERES] when it would wheel out aged former (?) Crowley-ite Jimmy Page (64 years young ladies and Gents) and Leona Louise Lewis (12/12/12 and "Lewis" -son of a Mason) to pass the "douche" from Beijing to London. In all honesty, I had no idea who the stunning 23 year old even was...turns out she won a Brit TV talent show called "X-Factor", and could very likely be taking a job from Celine Dion in Vegas any year now. In resonate "creep" factor, the London portion of the ritual involved an enigmatic double-decker BUS, which for me only brought to mind the London Bombings of 7/7. In yet another twist of fate a double-decker BUS crash near an amusement park (Alton Towers) in Staffordshire, England on Monday, August 18th 2008 left one dead and over 70 injured. The BUS/Amusement connection continues.
Oh these kids today with their sex, drugs, text messaging and rock n' roll??? Well, maybe not...turns out Miss Lewis requested that the ever popular "Every INCH of my love..." line from Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" be watered down for the masses of Chinese; glued to their countries "Coming Out" party. A bit of decapitation/castration in it's own right, no?
Sorry, but if this is the amount of Mojo that is to be mustered as some kind of planetary spell...they'll have to do better than that. I'm sure Matthew Delooze or Christopher Knowles will write something amazing that will strip down the entire production for us, and I hope they do...Part Deux, the closing felt more like I was watching Tim Burton's "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory" at a point. [some interesting connections here as well...more to come]
Two of our's from across the pond Newspaceman & PseudoOccultMedia bring the following:
http://newspaceman.blogspot.com/2008/08/i-think-ive-found-dorothy.htmlOddly, ALL video of the event has been removed by Youtube? In an effort to...what? Maintain the coming money stream for the Page/Lewis CD of gutless Zeppelin covers or is it NBC expecting big returns on DVD sales of the ritual in the weeks and months to come...A shame to not be able include it in this post, as there was one interesting moment where the camera frames Jimmy Page, his guitar, and the giant Olympic flame burning way above him all in one tight compact shot...the Magick lives on.
"Prior to each Games, the Olympic Flame is lit in Olympia, Greece and brought to the host city by runners carrying the torch in relay. There it plays an important role in the opening ceremonies. Though the torch fire has been around since 1928, the relay was introduced in 1936 as part of the then German government's attempt to promote their National Socialist ideology."
An estimated 40 Billion spent...Other than shutting down factories in Beijing for nearly a month so Athletes could actually breathe, not much ECO-friendliness going on...human rights continue to be trampled or completely thrown under the BUS while the world now sees China in a new light, hmmm, maybe it did work? The NWO continues to roll...all the way to London in 2012 (THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON).
