The Girl(s) Can't Help It!

Two of our favorite Scarlet Ladies are back in the news...

Lindsay "Rose" (Firecrotch) Lohan & Britney Spears might want to get a room...on the heels of Lohan's highly interesting new film's release this Friday [see Miss Hoi Polloi's blog entry "Bloodline Much...?" for some info], she gets busted for drinking and driving again (and possible cocaine possession), and Brit melts down during a day long interview into what has been described as a scene which to me sounds hauntingly similar to Anna Nicole's clown-faced mind-control video. Full details on Britney to be released Friday. Will Madge strip Lindsay of her Kabbalistic moniker now too? For the latest on these two here are some articles that tell the tale far better than I can. I also recommend Freeman Fly & Ben Fairhall's work on this topic...can't wait to see what they uncover with these new stories surfacing this week. Just when you thought it was safe :

The circle continues...

Abbey Lincoln & Jayne Mansfield from "The Girl Can't Help It"

Black Balloons, The Black Sun and The End of Days

If you haven't already PLEASE go visit Bev at Exploring the Mysterious . The balloon parade continues, and this time with deathly symbolism...It seems my shadow aferrismoon
has been overcome by The Black Sun himself...having taken an interesting photo just days ago!

Consider Soundgarden's 1994 Classic "Black Hole Sun"
A cleansing for the coming age? This side note about the song...After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Clear Channel included the song on its list of possibly inappropriate songs. Now why would they do that? Unless the song was hitting a little too close to home.

Black Hole Sun
In my eyes
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
'Neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes
In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just

Or Dead Can Dance's "Black Sun" from the 1990 album Aion

Man of fire.

I've seen the eyes of living dead.
It's the same game - survival.
The great mass play a waiting game.
Embalmed, crippled, dying in fear of pain.
All sense of freedom gone.

Black sun in a white world.
Like having a black sun in a white world.

I have a son,
His name is Eden.
It's his birthright,
Beyond estranged time.

Give me 69 years,
Another season in this hell.
It's all sex and death as far as I can tell.

Like Prometheus we are bound,
Chained to this rock of a brave new world,
Our godforsaken lot.
And I feel that's all we've ever needed to know,
'Til worlds end and the seas run cold.

Give me 69 years,
Another season in this hell.
There is sex and death
In mother nature's plans.

Like Prometheus we are bound,
Chained to this rock of a brave new world,
Our godforsaken lot.

We can't close without my hometown pals R.E.M. and 1987's oddly prophetic "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" Check some of the lyrics...low flying planes, wires in fires, crops, foreign towers.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane -
Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -
world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for
hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower. Slash and burn,
return, listen to yourself churn. Lock him in uniform and book burning,
blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a candle,
light a motive. Step down, step down. Watch a heel crush, crush. Uh oh,
this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear! A tournament,
a tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives
and I decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide. Mount St. Edelite.
Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic,
slam, but neck, right? Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...fine...

(It's time I had some time alone)

A distant Fox

It seems our little friend the "Fox" has turned up in of all places, outer space.

In the distant constellation of Vulpecula, the Fox consisting of the bright stars Deneb, Vega and Altair.

Notice the "M" ? Oddly referred to in articles as an upside down W...

Give 'em Hell Alan

I'm a big Alan Watt listener...I never miss a blurb. He's really the one that convinced me to start this current journey.

His latest, dated July 11, 2007 and entitled "Superheroes to Supermen to Supersimpletons - Agenda for the Young" is some of his best speaking ever.

Get on over there!

Foxes, Fires and The Art of War: or "Are foxes guarding the hen house?"

Continuing with my recent "fox" investigations, this time we turn a fruitful eye on some famous foxes in history to cast a light upon more possible deceptions unleashed on the world.

Take for instance the Third Reich's brilliant and cunning Field Marshall "The Desert Fox" Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel. The details of his battlefield exploits are well documented but for our purposes we choose to focus on his final days. On July 17th, 1944 Rommel's staff car was struck from above by a Royal Canadian Air Force "Spitfire" piloted by one Charley Fox (what are the odds right?). He suffered serious "head" injuries...three days later, an unsuccessful attempt on Hitler's life would lead to The Desert Fox being implicated (this remains unsubstantiated to this day, and a great mystery) in the plot. Instead of facing trial, Rommel was given the high privilege of a self-induced cyanide death, which he smartly opted for. The circumstances were covered-up, official reports gave the cause of death as a heart attack, and upon his death Hitler ordered a day of mourning in his honor, and full military burial. A "good" knight will, after all, ALWAYS fall upon his sword. [This is one of the most overlooked historical facts that exists, and is seldom the U.S.A. we have had one (and by good DO NOT confuse that with the Templar/Masonic concept of good)after the other falling for the past year]

Both sides (of the same coin?) would get in on the fox motif during those years. In 1943, the Dutch socialist party under the influence of Adolph Hitler would create an animated film based on the Reynard the Fox fable. This film was never seen by the public and was considered lost until 1991. Drawing on his love of Disney films, Hitler had the Nederland Film company produce "Van den vos Reynaerde" . This overtly anti-Semitic cartoon cleverly reverses the roles from the original text, thus placing Reynard in a sympathetic light.

"Even on his way home, Reynard succeeded in catching a fat hen. 'And it will always be that way.'" The final sentence of the Dutch novel, Van den vos Reynaerde, is just as innocent as the face of Reynard the Fox. This time, however, it is not Reynard who is the villain. Yes, he does steal a few chickens, but that's the way he is. Much worse is Jodocus, the rhinoceros, a cunning, money-grubbing animal who came from far away to settle in the land of the late King Nobel. His family has secretly followed him from the East and together they seize power, taking control of the money market and poisoning the people with strange new ideas. With their entrance, the decline of the empire begins.

In 1962, the best documentary Oscar was awarded to "Black Fox: The True Story of Hitler" an oddly orchestrated history lesson crossed with anthropomorphic parable. The story of Reynard again, only this time transposed onto the rise and fall of Hitler, all narrated by Marlene Dietrich. In typical foxesque contradiction the Third Reich used the fox in it's own anti-Semitic campaign aimed towards the youth drawing upon the fables they were already familiar with. And thus the historical "shell-game" continues...

It was also during WWII that the defensive fighting position known as a "foxhole" came into usage by the U.S. Military. It would seem that the fox is greatly admired by those who engage in war. So much so, that in 1948 an infantry division of the Israel Defense Forces adopted the moniker of "Samson's Foxes" during the Arab-Israeli War. This elite group exists to this day, and were involved in a number of high profile operations in and around Gaza in 2004.

More recently we had the pleasure of one Vicente Fox former President of Mexico (2000-2006), this former Coca-Cola executive and pyramid pal of President Bush (Burning Bush) helped pave the way for the impending North American Union...this particular deception is one that is sure to have ramifications the world has not seen in several hundred years. In an odd side note Fox's political party, The National Action Party reverses their title to employ the magickal PAN party.

George Bush, Vicente Fox and Stephen Harper the North American Union sealed in 2006 at the newly ordained 1 of 7 Wonders of the World Chichen Itza Pyramid

Now, we turn the Looking Glass (with the aid of wikipedia) back on 20th Century Fox (QUESTION: Will they ever join us in the 21st Century or do they know something we don't?) and perhaps one of the most beloved conspiracy covers of all time. The X-Files, and Agent Fox Mulder. In keeping with his fox persona, Agent Mulder is a pyrophobe, which we learn in an episode entitled "Fire". It has also been suggested that Fox's overall character can be closely identified with the central characters from the stories of H.P. Lovecraft [***We will be turning our attentions to Mr. Lovecraft VERY good time aferrismoon, in good time]. I would, however, suggest that without the skeptic Dana Skully at his side this insight falls a bit short short, as ole' H.P. was personally far more interested in Science that he was the supernatural. It is the combination of the two (Skull and Bones) that cross the X-Files into the world of Lovecraft. In one of this stories more interesting synchromystic discoveries related to the 1998 X-Files feature film we come across this behind the scenes nugget:

"During the making of the film, the filmmakers went to great lengths to preserve secrecy, including printing the script on red paper to prevent photocopying, and leaking disinformation to the media.[6] To help preserve secrecy, the film's working title was "Blackwood", named after Algernon Blackwood, a British writer of ghost stories"

In the opening to Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu we are greeted with this preface. What a pair of visionaries...:

(Found Among the Papers of the Late Francis Wayland Thurston, of Boston)
"Of such great powers or beings there may be conceivably a survival...a survival of a hugely remote period when...consciousness was manifested, perhaps, in shapes and forms long since withdrawn before the tide of advancing humanity...forms of which poetry and legend alone have caught flying memory and called them gods, monsters, mythical beings of all sorts and kinds..."

- Algernon Blackwood

One can see in this example the depth with which the operators are working. Are magicians not required to decipher these cryptic attempts at folly? The levels and layers of deception to which they are capable of invoking is staggering when you throw back the curtain, even just a little, and take a look at what is going on. Sadly, most of this is lost on the majority of the population, and who can blame them much work, hustle, complications of life...who could possibly wonder much less care. The challenge falls upon us dear readers...

And yet, I digress...our journey is far from over. Now honestly, I could spend the better part of 10 years breaking down the X-Files' role in all this but let's just consider a few more small details, most of which we uncover directly from the 1998 feature "Fight the Future" (interestingly they chose to fight THE future, and not fight FOR the future? Again, what's up with Fox and the future?). Within the context of the film itself we come full "circle" to the Ceres Death Ritual (and by circle, I do mean crops), and find Fox/Skully running through a genetically created corn field in the middle of TEXAS, chased by black helicopters with searchlights (fire, rays, light...however you wish to see it) aimed upon them...after an eventual escape they make their way into a massive white dome-sphere [BY ALL MEANS REFER TO THE CURRENT EXCELLENT WORK OF BEN FAIRHALL FOR YOUR CONNECTIONS HERE] in which our Skull(y) and Bones Duo stumble into a global elite, virus carrying hive of this point I suggest anyone who has not seen this film to watch it immediately!

Jumping back in time (as I am want to do...where's my Tardis?), at the beginning of this Epic gem of propaganda, we are watching a bizarre reenactment of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing event played out in "fiction" (or are we? the deceptions and decoys run deep don't forget). Only this time in Dallas...(spend a week or two with Kentroversy on the implications of this location choice), and with a REAL life demolition.

Which movie are you watching?

"The building in which the bomb detonates in the beginning of the movie was in fact demolished in the city of Dallas as part of the shooting of the movie. The building was already slated to be demolished before production began and the producers were able to use its real-life demolition as part of the plot."

Why is this important? As we know from director Chris Carter's (Templar through and through...this guy was born on Friday 13th, October 1961) X-Files spin-off "The Lone Gunmen" (yet another direct reference to Dallas & JFK) he can work in quite prophetic ways...My speculation is...was this film a test in predictive programming? a dry run for 911 and what was planned for after? based upon an unsuspecting publics reaction to the Government being involved with the destruction of our own in case they were caught? The storyline of the X-Files movie plays this scenario through...since our world in the X-Files ONLY exists in the context of FBI insiders (rarely is a commoner ever given an opinion). Think on this please...

Finally we arrive at yet another one of wikipedia's most wonderful "trivia" (reduction of fact to trivia, how cleverly foxy) entries dealing with the X-Files movie.

"In one scene, Mulder leaves a bar and urinates on a wall that displays a poster for the 1996 20th Century Fox co-produced sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day, which referenced The X-Files television series two years before this film was released. Chris Carter was allegedly not a fan of Independence Day."

One of the stars of "Independence Day" was Vivica Fox, you know, she played the all too realistic stripper mom which infuriated the religious right (although they seemed to revel at the White House being blown to kingdom come...those were the Clinton years after all) for an accurate portrayal of modern American life. And so, we're left with Foxes fighting Foxes for the ultimate game of who owns the keys to the hen house, and whose version of reality (or of things to come) reigns supreme in the eyes of the us, the great unwashed masses. We are at war.

Chemtrails=Art at Live Earth!

***REPOST*** It appears that this video was taken down. I have found a different copy to link to.

Okay...I admit it...I watched, and or Tivo'd nearly all of Bravo's coverage of the Live Earth Concerts.

One thing stuck out.

John Legend's performance of "Ordinary People"
was it just me or were the video screens one big tribute to Chemtrails or what?
look closely...


I have to admit that when it comes to a belief in any ET involvement in the formation of crop circles, the verdict is still out with me. I did have an odd synch this past week after having seen one of the most current circles to grace the internet via The Crop Circle Connector, and various other pages too numerous to mention (although these guys seem to have cornered the market on both insight and photos...literally). Anyway...less than one full day later, I happened to be watching Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), when I was taken aback (more to surface on this subject soon enough I'm sure)...where had I seen this image before? No matter your (or my) thoughts on the Disney machine, they sure seem to keep themselves in the synchromystic mix, don't they?

A couple of years back some enthusiastic "Firefox" (ahhhhh...see what I'm getting at yet?) supporters from Oregon State's Linux Users Group decided to do a little advertising of their own...

Don't forget to check out Megan "Fox" in the Transformers Movie! They're "More than meets the eye", especially those annoyingly evil "Decepticons" But really, isn't one deception as good as another? "Their War, Our World" the new slogan sets up the perfect deception, especially releasing this "gas fueled" testosterone "War of the Worlds" on the already overheated, fire scorched, flood ravaged public 4 days prior to Al Gore's every man, woman, and child did this guilt-fest. That's perhaps the most loaded tagline EVER created. ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, indeed.

And, for up to the minute updates on what this all means stop by The Daily Behemoth aka The Rael Gone Kid and AFERRISMOON. It just gets wackier and wackier.

Foxes, Fires and the Art of Deception: or "Is the sky REALLY falling?"

April 19th, a day that is no stranger to this site. Again we peer through the looking glass to The Festival of Ceres, specifically the Cerealia and it's main rite. The release of foxes into the Circus Maximus with torches tied to their backs. Too many "red" flags going up with this tidbit to let it go any further. An odd scene to say the least or is it? What was the purpose? A punishment, an eye for an eye tale? or has the fox been scapegoated, and these stories suggest much more, about human deception and less about the evil nature of foxes. In Ovid's Fasti Book IV:

When the third dawn from the vanishing of the Hyades

Breaks, the horses will be in their stalls in the Circus.

So I must explain why foxes are loosed then,

Carrying torches fastened to scorched backs.

The land round Carseoli’s cold, not suited for growing

Olives, but the soil there’s appropriate for corn.

I passed it on the way to my native Pelignian country,

A small region, yet always supplied by constant streams.

There I entered, as usual, the house of my former host:

Phoebus had already unyoked his weary horses.

My host used to tell me of many things, including this,

As a preparation for my present work:

‘In that plain,’ he said (pointing at the plain),

A thrifty peasant woman and her sturdy husband had a small

Plot, he tilled the land himself, whether it needed ploughing,

Or required the curving sickle or the hoe.

They would sweep the cottage, set on timber piles,

She’d set eggs to hatch under the mother hen’s feathers,

Or collect green mallows or gather white mushrooms,

Or warm the humble hearth with welcome fire,

And still worked her hands assiduously at the loom,

To provision them against the threat of winter cold.

She had a son: he was a playful child,

Who was already twelve years old.

In a valley, he caught, in the depths of a willow copse,

A vixen, who’d stolen many birds from the yard.

He wrapped his captive in straw and hay, and set fire

To it all: she fled the hands that were out to burn her:

In fleeing she set the crops, that covered the fields, ablaze:

And a breeze lent strength to the devouring flames.

The thing’s forgotten, but a relic remains: since now

There’s a certain law of Carseoli, that bans foxes:

And they burn a fox at the Cerialia to punish the species,

Destroyed in the same way as it destroyed the crops.

or the biblical story of Samson from Judges 15:4-5 :

So he (Samson) went out and caught three hundred foxes and tied them tail to tail in pairs. He then fastened a torch to every pair of tails, lit the torches and let the foxes loose in the standing grain of the Philistines. He burned up the shocks and standing grain, together with the vineyards and olive groves.

From days of yore until now, the fox, always the cunning deceiver. This perception has circled the globe, although in some cultures with perhaps less vile and more veneration. The Apache Indians of North America credit the fox in it's origin of fire myth (Prometheus), in China the vixen (female) comes as a tempter of married men, for the Japanese the fox (Kitsune) exists somewhere between our world and the spirit world, and is considered a messenger. The Western Christians deamonized the fox in Phylologus' Beastiaries, and condemned them as thieves in the Song of Solomon. There are literally hundreds of fables involving foxes, and it has even been suggested that no other creature has been written about more. [see Hans-Jorg Uther's incredible "The Fox in Literature" PDF here]

It would seem that the literal fox has taken on a much more human persona in the modern world, and not without setting a few fires and satisfying it's role as deceiver. Take 20th Century Fox, and it's sister (vixen) company Fox news. The all too familiar logos of the "Fox" franchise make use of the searchlight. Here they are shedding the proverbial light on the very tool that they are using to burn us with. Known in fox hunting as "lamping" a common practice is to shine spotlights into the eyes of foxes to freeze them before they are either shot in the head or neck. During World War II searchlights were often employed as tactical weapons, used to blind bomber pilots.

Our friends at Disney are certainly no strangers to the fox, and it appears they know the legends well. Here are a few: Pinocchio (1940), Robin Hood (1973), The Fox and the Hound (1981)...let's stop here for a second...anyone remember who voiced "Copper" the hound? That's right, Stargate master, and Disney for lifer Kurt Russell. The Chronicles of Narnia:The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (2005). Which leads us to perhaps the most subtle and compelling switcheroo in the Disney arsenal, Chicken Little (2005). Oh yes Mr. Kotze, you hit the nail on the head.

What is so significant about Disney's Chicken Little? For the purpose of this exploration it's what was left out, and perhaps what is at the heart of the Burning Fox story. In the countless versions of the Chicken Little fable one thing does indeed remain constant, the sometimes lethal deception of Foxy Loxy...which, for those of you who have seen the film will realize is nowhere to be found. Without going into too much detail, Foxy Loxy is a decoy and thus the greatest "red" herring of all. (For Ben Fairhall's consideration a cleverly hidden clue is embedded on a newsstand copy of "MM" (Modern Mallard) magazine. The headline blurb "How to Detect Decoys" slips by nearly invisible, and cloaked under the guise of a harmless pun).

The early story arch teases at a building conflict between Chicken Little and Foxy (as would be expected), but Disney throws a curve ball. In fact, in two of Foxy's primary screen moments actual "spotlights" appear and affect the action. Early in the film during a baseball game, Chicken Little is "blinded" by the sun's rays thus allowing Foxy to make a game saving catch. Later, towards the end of the film Foxy is literally "lamped" by the invading aliens, and beamed aboard one of their octopi surface vehicles. The question here is what is the true deception? Is "The End Near" as the films tagline would suggest or is it perhaps aliens themselves...does Disney want us to believe the sky is falling or don't they?

I'd very much like to thank fellow blogger aferrismoon for invaluable insights, research and persistence on this topic. Please check out his blog for additional details. And, for those of you itching to draw a parallel between my name (Todd) and the fact that a "Tod" is a name given to a male fox, please contain yourselves, aferrismoon was quick to remind me. Not to mention that "Tod" in German means death. Make of that what you wish, you have been warned! There is plenty more to come, stay tuned! Next time we look at foxes and the art of War, as well as more synchromystic "Foxes" all around us.

Dear Readers

Whew, what can I say?...we are living in strange times. I just wanted to take a moment to apologize for my lack of posting/involvement with responses and commenting on the work of others this past week.

I must admit that my energy levels have been tapped, and emotionally I've been low as well...with 7/7/7 looming, I realize that there is much to be looking at, and with the floods and "terror" ongoing in the U.K. I should be hard at work...I've had to take a step back, and really just let this all wash over me this past week.

I think there is plenty to take in, and obviously much upcoming to write about and reflect upon, which I have every intention on doing (as well as finalizing the third Ceres installment).

My best to each and everyone of you (you know who you are)! I imagine that our July 4th shall give me a good chance to get some writing done (as it means nothing), and I look forward to reading and commenting on what everyone else uncovers as well.
