Year of the Tiger (2010)/ The Year We Make Contact (UPDATED)

As quickly as "TIGER" hit "9" former Mistresses that number has significantly jumped to 16

Anyone one who has followed the work of Goro Adachi or my blog over the past year or year and a half will know that the TIGER holds resonant significance to a much larger and more shadowy drama than mere media spectacle, so it is no wonder the the current trials and tribulations of one Eldrick Tont Woods aka "Tiger" Woods should be blasting one of those oh so familar autumn/winter ORANGE alerts that have become almost commonplace.

For the REAL inside lowdown, I would head on over to Goro Adachi's post dated Dec. 12th!

"Tiger" now linked to Canadian Steriod Dr. & Voted Athlete of the Decade!

I had also been meaning to report the German TIGER mauling which took place on Dec. 9 as reported here on MSN NINE.

There were originally NINE known species of TIGERS (Three are now considered extinct). For a rather in depth and interesting list of symbolic properties of the number 9, I would check THIS out:


CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cincinnati Bengals (TIGER) receiver Chris Henry has died, one day after suffering serious injuries upon falling out of the back of a pickup truck in what authorities describe as a domestic dispute with his fiancee.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Henry died at 6:36 a.m. Thursday. Henry was 26.

Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a residential road "apparently suffering life-threatening injuries," according to police.

Police said a dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee was driving away from the residence.

Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry "came out of the back of the vehicle." They wouldn't identify the woman, and no charges were immediately filed.

Your earlier post on the Tiger Woods car incident was very prescient, and illustrated by a snarling big cat ... who soon manifested in the German attack. Very similar to the tiger events which echoed around the crushing of the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka.

In some way, the Tiger seems to be both a word, a spirit, and a being, enacting the rifts and conflicts of our time. It seems to have started on Friday Oct 3 2003, when a white tiger attacked its trainer, Roy Horn, during a performance in Las Vagas.

In recent decades, the big cat seems to be a way for daimons to be visible among us - thus the mystery cats in the countryside. A different type of energy seems to breaking through via tigers.

Also at Liberec zoo, the other week, 2 lions got into the White Tiger's cage and mauled it to death.

hi todd, the leonine motif only holds the thread together -- what tiger woods and chris henry (bengals as you perceptively point out) have in common is both were Domestic Violence victims

ie the sphinx = lioness

the violence inflicted on woods has been hushed up in various ways, and ive heard nothing further on mr henry having Mysteriously "come out of the back" of his girlfriends truck

now thats REAL magic!

these incidents cohere with yr investigations of the death of john denver and steve fossett's disappearance

i think you hit it when discussing the role of the Flying M(onkeys) is the fossett/denver incidents, and i would equate the "intelligence" and intent behind the tiger woods/chris henry attacks with aforesaid goddess/cerelean manifestations, expresses individualistically

the woods/henry incidents reflect the larger collective blood-sacrificial and matriarchal reality of modern america, a denied reality

your work is often v good

cheers, ray
