Yik Yak Attack

The social media application Yik Yak appears to be being used this week to target schools with threats of possible violent events.

Today, The University of Georgia in Athens was the latest of four targeted over the past several days. According to the school newspaper The Red and Black , the following message was sent via Yik Yak:

“If you want to live, don’t be at the MLC (Miller Learning Center) at 12:15.”

Within the hour, the all clear was given by local first responders and the situation resumed to normal. 

 ***UPDATE*** Arrest made in University of Georgia "Yik Yak" violent threat.

Yesterday a similar threat went out via Yik Yak at Indiana State University in Terra Haute.  It reportedly read, "I wonder if this school shooting is going to go as planned tomorrow." (Tomorrow meaning Thursday.) Thus far what differs between the two events is that a second alert went out at Indiana State. The timing of posts to Yik Yak were both roughly around 12:00 noon.
The university issued the second alert early Thursday afternoon after a note was found in a bathroom at University Hall about 12:40 p.m.That note read, "Start shooting at 1:15 be ready. Jihad," campus police said.

***UPDATE*** Arrest made in Indiana State University "Yik-Yak" violent threat.

In Yorktown, New York on Wednesday a 15-year-old Yorktown High School student used Yik Yak near the high school campus and posted anonymously that the "school would explode," According to the report, 
"The app's posts can only be viewed by other users within a 1 ½-mile radius, police said. But police used GPS tracking associated with the smartphone app to zero in on the boy's home. Yik Yak assisted with the investigation."

On Tuesday September 16th, another 15-year-old, this time in Mount Sinai, New York was arrested. "Police said the ninth grader used a social media app called Yik Yak to make the threats. He allegedly posted that there would be a shooting at the school and then he was “going to blow it up” on Tuesday."

A statement was released by Yik Yak in regards to the event in Mount Sinai: “Yik Yak was created to provide users with a forum for positive, hyper-local interactions. We strongly discourage any misuse, and make a point to monitor traffic and work with law enforcement and other officials when posts are violent in nature. In this instance, we immediately helped Suffolk County police identify the location of the individual to help with the investigation and arrest.”

This post is ongoing...stay tuned for updates.

For a comprehensive and well written examination of Yik Yak and it's pitfalls see the following article April 18th, 2014 from The Lafayette @ Lafayette College.

And, just two days ago this article in The Pendulum @ Elon University in North Carolina was posted.

Here Comes the (BLACK) SWAN

Back in January of 2011 odd things were happening in Arizona and elsewhere. The Jared Lee Loughner shooting spree in Tucson, followed by the mass BLACKBIRD deaths in Arkansas & Louisiana.

The current flooding potential as of 9/18/2014

This week, enter Hurricane/Tropical Storm ODILE (BLACK SWAN). The remnants of the storm are creating major flooding across the American Southwest, with TUCSON (TWO SUNS) caught directly in the crossfire. It was around the same time in 2011 that major regional flooding was taking it's toll in Australia/OZ.

The BLACK Flag of ISIS

 We learned today that an ISIS led terror plot was uncovered in Australia/OZ. The general details of the plot involved a " -- a killing, Australian media reported, in which alleged assailants planned to kidnap a member of the public, behead the victim and then drape him or her in an ISIS flag." ---CNN report

***UPDATED***Also, this from our man in Scotland, Newspaceman:

Yesterday, September 17th 2014 it was reported that credible threats exist to the 77 year old Pope Francis by ISIS. "Jihadists from Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham have in recent weeks boasted of wanting to extend their so-called caliphate to Rome, and have talked of planting the jihadi black flag on top of St Peter’s Basilica."

Satantic rights activists with BLACK FLAG @ Harvard Univ.

Least we forget that The Satanic Temple will be holding a BLACK MASS on September 21st 2014 at the Oklahoma City Civic Center. The events 88 tickets are sold out and is under heavy protest by Christians. Oklahoma mayor Mary Fallin called the black mass "a "disgusting mockery of the Catholic faith," saying that it should be "equally repellent to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.""

***MAJOR BREAKING UPDATE*** Loren Coleman's extensive breakdown of the Rising Black Sun entitled "Black Swans, Jareds, Black Suns, and Two Sons"

Looking forward it is important to keep in mind that as we explored back in 2011, a BLACK SWAN portends an unlikely event with THREE very specific elements. 1) The event is outside normal possibilities or expectations. 2) It has an extreme impact. and finally, 3) It's existence can only be comprehended after the fact. Therefore, it is virtually impossible to consider what might be coming up...

Keep Your Heads Down: ICE & Fire

`Are their heads off?' shouted the Queen.
`Their heads are gone, if it please your Majesty!' the soldiers shouted in reply.
`That's right!' shouted the Queen. `Can you play croquet?'
The soldiers were silent, and looked at Alice, as the question was evidently meant for her.
`Yes!' shouted Alice. 
 ---from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland

When you enter the rabbit hole or peer into the looking glass, anything is possible and yet nothing is as it seems...

***Author & Researcher Loren Coleman is hot on the trail with his up to the moment post entitled:***

Second Western Journalist Beheaded by ISIS (IS? or ISIL?). Can we expect a THIRD?

The now grim image of ORANGE associated with recent beheadings.

The ICE Bucket Challenge (ALS charity) phenomenon rolls on...a ritual beheading or cleansing?

  As Above, So Below...ORANGE buckets over many a head these days

THIRD (Trident) Volcano erupts (Blows it's top?):

The familiar glow of ORANGE lava flowing from the ICElandic volcano

THIRD (Trident) American to return from Africa with the Ebola virus:

Our old friend Poseidon/Neptune and his TRIDENT help demonstrate the Magic of the Number THREE

I expect researcher Goro Adachi to be hitting us with something EARTHSHAKING in the coming days too. His recent Hell Gate (see VP Joe Biden's "Gate's of Hell" speech here) workings have been hitting the mark.

"As Above, So Below" in theaters now, the Gate to Hell is discovered in the catacombs beneath the city of Paris.

In a shrewd bit of synchronistic predictive programming, HBO unleashed author George R.R. Martin's series of fantasy novels known collectively as "A Song of Ice and Fire" upon us as "Game of Thrones". The wildly popular show has produced no less than five decapitation deaths to major characters over the first four seasons. The producers even managed to slip the head of George W. Bush into a scene which included dozens of random heads on spikes. Officials for HBO later apologized on behalf of the shows creators for the egregious inclusion of the likeness of the former President's likeness.

Through The Looking Glass Part Two: Days of Future Past 1989/2014

As pointed out in my recent "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" article about the VMA Awards on Sunday, August 24th 2014. Hollywood, "good girl" Taylor Swift resonated the year 1989 to us on a day that saw the biggest earthquake in Northern California since then, as well as a direct correspondence with NEPTUNE's first flyby thanks to Voyager 2, twenty-five years to the day.

Hip-hop artist Common aka Elam FERGUSON on TV's "Hell on Wheels" paid tribute to the civil/racial unrest in FERGUSON, MISSourI...which brings us back to August 23rd, 1989, the Bensonhurst neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. Yusef Hawkins, a 16 year old African-American, and three friends there to buy a car, and wrongly identified by a mob of white youth who suspected Yusef of dating a white girl in their area are beaten with baseball bats; Yusef is eventually shot and killed in the altercation.

The marches and written accounts of the protests sound far more disturbing than what has been taking place in FERGUSON, and yet there were no arrests, injuries or deaths as a result. Use of Police force as seen in FERGUSON didn't exist in N.Y. 

Although not directly related to the events in Bensonhurst, several weeks later over labor day weekend more racial unrest as Greekfest (African-American fraternity/sorority beach party) attendees in Virginia Beach, VA. were met with police force, and riots ensued. The television footage of the conflict that weekend is strikingly similar to what we have been seeing in FERGUSON.

Virginia Beach, VA. is home to the NEPTUNE Festival (started in 1973), and a 34' statue of The King of the Deep (2005)

1989 also resonates with 2014 in a couple of other symbolic ways. Former Beatle, George Harrison released his second compilation album: Dark HORSE: 1976-1989 (Dark HORSE Records). The Dark HORSE has gained much attention this year with Katy Perry's music video & performance at this years Grammy Awards. It was reported that in July of 2014 in Los Angeles, the memorial George Harrison tree had died and would need to be replanted. The cause of the trees demise, Beetles.

George Harrison's 5th Solo Album was released in 1974, and also titled Dark HORSE

On July 4th, 1989, then fourteen year old actress Drew Barrymore attempted suicide. Earlier this year in late July, Drew's half-sister Jessica was found dead behind the wheel of her car of an apparent drug related overdose. Researcher Loren Coleman covered this story over at his blog "Twilight Language" in a piece entitled: The Paradise Syndrome: Celebrity Suicides.

Other events from 1989 worth nothing:
- February: Iran's Ayatollah Khoneini places bounty on Satantic Verses author Salman Rushdie
-March: "California Quake" amusement ride opens at Universal Studios
             1st sea test of TRIDENT 2 mISSIle self-destructs, Cape Canaveral
             Worst U.S. Oil Spill, Exxon's "Valdez" spills 11.3 million gallons off coast of Alaska
-June: "Dead Poets Society" opens (see Robin Williams)
          Tiananmen Square Massacre. Chinese troops Kill nearly 1,000
          Then President Ronald Reagan is Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II
          1st of the modern "Batman" movies opens
-August: Pete Rose banned from Baseball for life/betting scandal.
-September: Hurricane Hugo caused $10 Billion damages and left an estimated 107 dead
-October: STS-34 launches (ATLANTIS 5)
-November: Major Conjunction of Venus, Mars, Uranus, NEPTUNE, Saturn and the Moon
                   The Fall of the Berlin Wall 
-December: Mikhail Gorbachev & George H.W. Bush declare end of the Cold War
                   Worst Canadian Mass Murder, Marc Lepine kills 14 at Univ. of Montreal
                   U.S. Invasion of Panama
                   Earthquake, Newcastle Australia. 11 dead

Through The Looking Glass Part One: Hell on Wheels

 “America is not a young land: it is old and dirty and evil. Before the settlers, before the Indians... the evil was there... waiting.” 

---William S. Burroughs. American Author.

As much as I would like to avoid such subjects, the history of our country is one that cannot be avoided, speculated upon, and basically torn to shreds in so many ways. I am more than willing to admit that I am neither a Christian, 1% er, a Tea Party Member, or cardholder of any of the prescribed groups you might run across on the internet these days crying for the LOST days of a better America. I am a believer that it was a lie, and has been since day one. This IS NOT to say that I do not hold to the same principles or beliefs chartered in our original Constitution or that I somehow HATE this country, quite the contrary. 

Sir Francis Bacon's New Atlantis written in 1627 may be claimed to have been written about establishing the New World we now call home, and the even newer world elites may have their eye on the prize of a New World Order but the Land of the Free remains that way despite all efforts. Bringing ISIS to our shores in the form of the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of inclusion is part of that freedom, as are those individuals who followed her torch of light to share in it's basking glow. Perhaps the lie began there...So many people, and generations now, seem to have forgotten that promise, and that land.

Writing on the "fringe", somewhere between Heaven and Hell is perhaps the hardest place to exist in this modern media/social and commercial driven society...however, given that I do not consider myself a "Christian" gives me a special perspective as neither concept plays into my world view. I am nostalgic by nature. For: Baseball, The Revolutionary War, and The War of 1812 specifically, Historical Secrets and Punk Rock. The later being the most open, raw and unapologetic movement in history. Fuck the Hippies.

I have been focusing on last nights Video Music Awards as they relate to this year's TRIDENT/Year of the HORSE/NEPTUNE & POSEIDON events...upon reflecting into the MIRROR/Looking Glass, I missed perhaps the most glaring and significant moment of last evenings ceremony...Hip-Hop Artist turned actor, Common's tribute to the recent events in FERGUSON, MISSourI.

This choice was especially monumental as Common plays Elam FERGUSON on AMC's 4th year series Hell on Wheels of which, I am a huge fan (and his performance on the show is exceptional IMHO). Common's character of Elam FERGUSON on the show is a "colored"  freeman, slave educated, turned railroad worker helping to better himself on a manifest destiny dream across the post Civil War frontier.

 The building of the transcontinental railroad (Steel HORSE) across the fledgling United States serves as the dynamic backdrop to this story of Rebels building ORDER OUT OF CHAOS. The fictional Mr. FERGUSON is a TRIDENT resonator, and could even be described as a "DARK HORSE" by certain researchers with an underlying agenda. His relations with a white woman, Eva, a former Indian slave turned prostitute; and tattooed with a facial TRIDENT identifies them both to the ruling White Brotherhood as "outsiders".

The character of Eva from TV's Hell on Wheels, most likely based on the real life Olive Oatman.

As I will show in my next installment, the 2014 TRIDENT event in FERGUSON, Missouri MIRRORS events that were happening back in 1989. NEPTUNE/TRIDENT center Virgina Beach, VA comes into play.

History is written and supports those in power, this is an indisputable fact. The overthrown, the disenfranchised and begotten be damned. Even the children of the Star Wars generation must see the gross implications thrust upon the once ruling class of Jedi Knights, viewed as Rebels, symbolic at the hands of The Empire. But, I digress...

Hell on Wheels , for those unfamiliar with the show, is the story of the New America, made up almost entirely of Rebels seeking something they can claim or work for as their own (Freedom). Recently freed Slaves, Indians, Evangelists, defeated Gray Coats, Immigrants, Rogue Homesteaders & Mormons, Prostitutes, Women of the Plains, railroad industrialists (Hell bent on expansion) and even hard drinking presidential candidate U.S. Grant; offset the nearly unseen "Powers That Be". The looming Blue Coats of the U.S. Army act as ghosts and savage protectors of the establishment, as they patrol the untamed wilderness amongst the "Rebels" establishing a new Nation under one Flag.

The Spirit of these States, United and bloody as they may be were built on the backs of Rebels...We should not fear these traits. Race, Color or Creed but embrace our Rebel heritage, and oppose Oppression and Confinement of the Human Spirit at every available turn like our deist forefathers. Not look to claim that which is not ours again, like the Empire Seekers of old. We are where we are because of these practices, there is NO WHERE ELSE TO GO.

Whole Lotta "Shakin'" Going On.

"Shake for me girl, I wanna be your backdoor man..."
---Robert Plant "Whole Lotta Love"

The California earthquake in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, August 24th spawned two more quakes straight down the Western side of the Americas, bringing the total to THREE TRIDENT events.

M6.4 - 18km WNW of Hacienda La Calera, Chile  

M6.0 - 6km NW of American Canyon, California 

M6.9 - 43km ENE of Tambo, Peru


Just south of Napa Valley in Southern California, what's left of the music industry was preparing for the VMA's, which I guess one day was known as The MTV Music Video Awards. In all honesty, I am a old enough to remember the beginnings, rise and fall of MTV, and I have never once tuned into watch this event. After my post from late yesterday entitled "They Are Coming", a few cocktails and some youthful coaxing from my wife, I settled in to feel every bit my 45 years of age. 

I had been entirely perplexed by the use of Led Zeppelin's seminal first release "Whole Lotta Love" in the commercials promoting this "awards" show (although, I think they gave out 6 over the course of the evening, and all the recipients seemed to make up the entire celebrity audience...?). The lines to start this article, tell the "tail"...the entire evening spent in worship of the female posterior. Now it all makes sense...

Ah..."but", least we forget the EARTH-SHAKING (Poseidon/Neptune) taking place all around us! Country to pop crossover artist Taylor Swift was there to remind us, performing her new song "SHAKE it Off"...two-thirds of the way through her Art-Deco, Golden Age inspired bubblegum hit a large 1989 was revealed on stage?, wife...blank looks back and forth...? Clueless...

Well, it turns out the title of Ms. Swift's new effort is "1989", which just so happens to be the year of her birth. Now it all makes sense...since it also happens to be the year of last big EARTHQUAKE in the San Francisco area, as well as 25 years to the day that Voyager 2 flew past NEPTUNE and it's moon TRITON; sending back the first pictures of the magnificently blue planet.

In stark contrast to Katy Perry's Dark HORSE performance (which has created about as much buzz in synchro-circles and beyond, as I have seen in years) at the 2014 Grammy Awards back in January; Taylor Swift came across as much good witch to her bad witch. Both women arrived sporting NEPTUNE blue outfits for the affair, and Dark HORSE did win for best female video.

Taylor, it is interesting to note, was raised in WyomISSIng (ISIS MIRRORING), Pennsylvania. Taking a look back Through The Looking Glass at the year 1989, we will see some other interesting tidbits that MIRROR 2014. Stay tuned!

They Are Coming

"They have taken the bridge and the second hall. We have barred the gates but cannot hold them for long. The ground shakes, drums... drums in the deep. We cannot get out. A shadow lurks in the dark. We can not get out... they are coming."
The Super Bowl XLVIII halftime ceremony/ritual warned us to PREPARE, now the VMA ceremony/ritual is telling us "They Are Coming"...the hype and fear programming is relentless during these TRIDENT Times. Earlier in the week, TRIDENT resonator Ferguson, Missouri showed us a sign as well..."ISIS HERE" or "IS (Islamic State) IS HERE". Painted in green spray paint, echoing the green font choice of the 2014 Video Music Awards show being held this evening in Southern California...while Northern California reels from the EARTHQUAKE it experienced in the wee hours this morning. Green is the color of Islam and the color of magic. 

 The "Golden Apple" of Discord destroyed. The start of the new Trojan War? See the entire body of work of researcher Goro Adachi for more. 

The use of Led Zeppelin in the VMA commercial escapes me personally, their music has so little to do with the performers of today? The exploding apple? NYC? The Big Apple?

Earth-Shaker: Aug. 24th 2014.

Both Loren Coleman and Goro Adachi called for an event on August 24th, 2014...The signs of Neptune and his TRIDENT strike Northern California (6 miles south of Napa) in the form of a 6.1 Earthquake. The largest in the area since 1989.

TRIDENTS Win Under Protest

Is it any wonder...?

This past Saturday, The Barbados TRIDENTS of the Caribbean Premier League of Cricket won the  Championship over the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The upstart TRIDENTS knocked off favorites Jamaica Tallawahs to enter the finals (the Tridents catapulted from fourth place into first to earn a bye through to the tournament final based on having the best net run rate), and the team from Guyana suffered it's second consecutive loss in the Championship game.

The Amazon Warriors are now protesting the outcome however. When a rain delay was announced (via Public Address, Social Media, and on the Television Broadcast), the TRIDENTS held a slight lead...apparently officials on the field had other plans, called the game, and award the victory and the Championship outright to Barbados.

The Divine Comedy?

8/21/2014 **UPDATE**
The owner's of the Neptune statue have increased their original reward of $1,000 from several weeks ago to $3,000 for return of the stolen TRIDENT. Police also announced that a note was left at the scene described as "taunting" and signed by Zeus.

It seems our watery TRIDENT is not only destructive but appears to have a sense of humor possibly? As the three-pronged symbol of Neptune/Poseidon is playing a bit of hide-and-seek around the globe. Loren Coleman was quick to hunt down news of the discovery of an ancient TRIDENT long hidden in India. And then, just as quickly, one goes missing in Florida (for the THIRD time, mind you). The TRIDENT was stolen from the home known as "Paradiso"(The THIRD, and final part of Dante's Divine Comedy)

As we know, Earthquakes are associated with Neptune/Poseidon and the quake in China over the weekend serves as a horrible reminder.

The "missing" TRIDENT in Florida is being chalked up to a college prank...with this official statement released by police, "Many college fraternities utilize the trident to symbolize their connection and visual association with Greek mythology."

Ah yes, PSI...the 23rd letter of the Greek alphabet

Back in late April of this year, SynchroMiss noticed this deep connection and posted an article entitled "NEIGHbors Movie Decoded" (check it out by clicking the link).

World TRIDENT Center Revisited

The new logo for the World Trade Center site was unveiled last Wednesday (August 13th, 2014). The logo has been through several incarnations, and the final product was created by the Landor Associates, the people that brought us the very cleaver FedEX arrow design.

The logo has 5 Points of design that pay TRIbute to 9/11 and the destroyed site. 

1) The logo DOUBLES as a TRIDENT to represent the steel columns at the base of the original building.

Please see my post here dated Monday, December 15th 2008 entitled "WTC: World TRIDENT Center" for more on this.

Rescued WTC DOUBLE TRIDENTS now reside inside the 9/11 Memorial. "33" A nod to our Masonic heritage?

2) The logo also DOUBLES as a "W" which is said to stand for World Trade Center as well as Westfield World Trade shopping center, set to open in 2015. (I would also suggest that the letter "W" itself can be seen as a TRIDENT...and a likely TRIbute to then President George W Bush, who I feel was complicit in the acts of 9/11/2001)

3) The two negative parallel spaces on top are supposed to evoke the "TRIbute in Light"

4) The bottom two columns are supposed to evoke the 9/11 Memorial's reflecting pools (As Above, So Below...MIRRORS & DOUBLES)

5) And finally the top three bars of the TRIDENT are sloped at a very specific 17.76 degrees. This is intended to MIRROR the approx. height of the original TWIN Towers. And perhaps more appropriately the year 1776.

Or ends...

W=23, T=20, C=3...2323

The Cult of Poseidon

The largest known TRIDENT in the world (14ft and 200 lbs) is currently on display for the first time in 30 years. As part of the ongoing exhibit, Poseidon and the Sea: Myth, Cult and Daily Life at the Tampa Museum of Art. The TRIDENT is on loan from the J.P. Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA.

Of the 130 items on display, there is also a 5ft. tall statue of Poseidon, which is considered the biggest and most well preserved of it's kind in the United States. It is part of the permanent collection of the Tampa Museum of Art.


On again, off again vocalist for Dead Can Dance,  Lisa Gerrard released her newest solo effort on August 11th, 2014 entitled TWILIGHT Kingdom. The collection of new songs has an undeniable "watery" theme...if you are unfamiliar with Mrs. Gerrard, her voice and physical presence is more angelic and unworldly, which is why I refer to her as a "vocalist" rather than a "singer". Lyrically she speaks in tongues, and I have always seen her music as a requiem for the particular time in which we live.

Obviously, I was struck by her use of TWILIGHT Kingdom as the title, as it so closely MIRRORS James Shelby Downard and Loren Coleman's use of TWILIGHT Language in the research of all things synchronistic. Imagine my total lack of of surprise when track listings like NEPTUNE and The Seven Seas appear on the newly released "album.


The full "album" can be listened to above with tracks like Adrift, NEPTUNE, and The Seven Seas.

Meager beginnings from the Goth-ish early works of Dead Can Dance, to the bands later ultra complex spiritual works, Lisa's own recordings and collaborations have served as theme songs to major motion pictures, and included on soundtracks of some very interesting titles: "Black Hawk Down", "The Gladiator", "Whalerider", "King Arthur", The Priest", and "Man of Steel" to name just a few.

Least we forget, it was Mr. Downard's "King-Kill/33" that contains much of the TRIDENT symbolism we seem to have already taken for granted today.We are most certainly living in a TWILIGHT Kingdom Mrs. Gerrard...

Water, Water Every Where...

..."Nor Any Drop to Drink"

from Samuel Taylor Coleridge's classic lyrical poem, The Rime of the Ancient MARINER.

 Statue of The Ancient MARINER at Watchet Harbour, Somerset.

The towns of New London and WATERford, Connecticut are in danger of losing their WATER from anywhere between several days to up to a week it was announced earlier today.

According to reports, "New London Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio declared a state of emergency this morning because of the water problems and the public utilities director issued a mandatory water restriction for New London and Waterford, which applies to all nonessential water use."

the official statement goes on to state that, "When the leak was detected, the city was losing water at a rate of 10 million gallons per day, or 8,000 gallons a minute.To put it in perspective, Finizio said the supply to the city of New London is 7 million gallons of water a day, and he said people needed to be prepared for the worst-case scenario of a widespread and long-lasting disruption to the water supply."

The New London and WATERford crisis is in no way connected to the recent water outages in Detroit, which stem from financially strapped residents being unable to keep up with or flat out pay their water bills in some cases.

 However, it is becoming increasing alarming to me how unstable this most precious of human commodities has become. In an article dated July 27th, 2014, the former CEO of Nestle states that "In his view, citizens don’t have an automatic right to more than the water they require for mere “survival”, unless they can afford to pay for it. For context, the World Health Organization sets such “survival” consumption levels at a minimum of 20 liters a day for basic hygiene and food hygiene – higher, if you add laundry and bathing. If you’re reading this in the United States, the odds are that flushing your toilet consumes 50 liters of water a day."

...the metaphorical Albatross around the proverbial neck. (see Robin Williams).

Prince Namor (Roman) The Sub-MARINER creator Bill Everett was inspired to name his superhero after Coleridge's character.

The King of Atlantis Unveiled

...After all, it is Shark Week across the TV landscape...and so, TRIDENT followers should not be surprised that the role of AQUAMAN (Neptune/Poseidon) for the upcoming "Batman Vs. Superman: DAWN of Justice"  movie has finally been officially confirmed. Hawaiian (any wonder? see here) born Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa will DAWN the ORANGE and Green, and carry the all powerful TRIDENT as King of Atlantis.

Momoa is no stranger to this royal linage...he played Ronon Dex on TV's "Stargate: Atlantis", and most recently as Khal Drogo a warlord of the Dothraki on HBO's "Game of Thrones". The Dothraki are a nomadic horse tribe. Horses are central to their culture, transportation, raw materials, warfare, and establishing social standing. Horses are even used as food. As we know, Poseidon is the God of Horses.

On Saturday, August 9th, Loren Coleman posted this wonderful quote from Director Zack Snyder regarding the character of Aquaman:

"The cool thing with Aquaman is he has his trident. You have to realize that could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact. That's a thing that's in the canon. He's super strong because, of course, he can exist at these super deep depths. So when he comes up here, he's crazy strong. Anyway, not to say he's in my movie or anything like that, but he has the potential to be bad ass, that's all I’m saying."
Great find Loren, thanks for that!

Maserati: Age of Deception

A Maserati, tricked out to resemble a police patrol car was stopped and it's driver was arrested for impersonating an officer over the weekend.

Braintree, MA.

The side panel sports the TRIDENT logo and the slogan : "DECEPTICONS: Punish and Enslave"

An interesting take on the Maserati Superbowl ad referenced in the link above from Fred McCoy @

Which begs the question, Why advertise to such dramatic effect unless there is a deeper meaning to this commercial ? The words hold the key...are they advertising a car or planting a seed in the collective unconscious (as we know propaganda/advertising is meant to do)?

The Death of Comedy or Living in the Belly of the Beast.

News of the passing of actor/comedian Robin Williams spread quickly yesterday (Monday, 8/11/2014). Loren Coleman flushed out the TRIDENT connection with ease in an unlikely "synch"...and as the noted researcher and author pointed out to me, "...and yet, we aren't making this stuff up"

"Mork from Ork" aka Robin Williams in anchor shirt...his first film role would be that of "Popeye" the forearm anchor tattooed SAILOR Man. 

Andrew Griffin at Red Dirt Report gives this wonderfully written insight into the Christopher/Robin connection!

 How deep can this go? As deep as the vastest ocean...the watery deep controlled by Neptune/Poseidon dear readers. The question remains...What epic oceanic drama are we witnessing unfold? What does it all mean? All I can presume to do is to continue casting lights, connect the dots and paint a picture.
Step back a few weeks...ISIS attacks in Iraq lead to this interesting TRIDENT related tidbit. The following excerpt comes directly from Loren Coleman's post entitled Tripoli, Tridents, Three Cities, Mermaids, navy Seals and Jonah

"Meanwhile, in Iraq, on July 25, 2014, an Iraqi shrine that is purported to be the burial site of Jonah, who the Bible says was swallowed by a whale, has been blown up by Islamic State militants (ISIS). The tomb, a popular destination for religious pilgrims and tourists, was inside a Sunni mosque in Mosul called the Mosque of the Prophet Younis, which is Arabic for Jonah. It dates back to the eighth century BC. The story of Jonah, or Younis, who was said to have survived three days in the belly of a whale, appears in both the Bible and Quran."

Several weeks prior, the voice of Walt Disney's "Pinocchio" passed away...another story involving being swallowed by a whale.

Pinocchio becomes central to the theme of Terry Gilliam's "The FISHER King" starring Robin Williams, combined with his role in "Toys" he became Geppetto personified.

Go back to his highly successful but short lived" Mork and Mindy" TV show...Williams "jumped the SHARK" when they introduced an egg-hatched man-child Jonathan Winters as Mork's backwards aging child "Mearth".

The obvious Red overalls we all connect to the Disney version of Pinocchio

Hollywood was not yet done with Robin and his Pinocchio/Geppetto persona. Perhaps one of his most beloved roles was as the voice of the Blue Genie in Disney's "Aladdin". Genie bounces in and out, and out and in of various characters, allowing Williams to free form in the way only he could. Pinocchio makes an appearance every time the Genie is lying. 

The films "Jumanji" and "Hook", among others in his filmography continued the theme of youth vs. age throughout his entire acting career...and perhaps was the demon that shaped his life and eventually destroyed him. R.I.P. 

(As a side note here, it is interesting to note that Robin's character Mork was a spin-off from the 50's based sit-com "Happy Days". Actor Tom Bosley who played Mr. Cunningham voiced Geppetto in a 1987 animated film called "Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night")

(The term "Jumping the Shark" originated with "Happy Days". It denotes a point in the life of a television series when the writers appear to have run out of new ideas and situations for their characters, and resort to over the top or sensational storylines. In this case, 50's cool guy The Fonz literally decides to jump a live shark on his signature motorcycle.)

The TRIDENTS Last Gleaming Part II

Reports developed today that The United States may launch air strikes against Iraq. WWIII looms on the horizon...ever so closer, tick tock, tick tock.

While in the Pacific, two (not one) unlikely HURRICANES edge closer to the "birthplace" of Barack Obama & TV's LOST. Poseidon's TRIDENT STRIKES as a 4.3 mag. earthquake hits the Big Island in anticipation.

The old Gods mocking our current the gorillas of the new Gods posture and rattle their swords at one another from one side of the world to the other. 

"Prepare" & "We have prepared, now we STRIKE

Listeners and readers of Clyde Lewis may be familiar with with these words, as they resonated throughout Super Bowl XLVIII earlier this year thanks to Bruno MARS & Maserati. ZAP! Lightning STRIKES. Planes fall from the skies or disappear entirely...shot down? Diverted, erased as a false flag for the bigger plans of nations? We shall see...we shall see.

The TRIDENTS Last Gleaming 2014!

I wanted to send a huge shout out to our old friend Loren Coleman for everything he does, and for keeping the fires going year after year.

Stay posted to for updates...I will be working up a full analysis of the return of the TRIDENTS later this fall.
