Anunnaki, are a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures.

Anunnaki, are a group of deities in ancient Mesopotamian cultures.

I had an unusually vivid dream last night I call “The Curse of the Anunnaki.”

Speeding through the inkiness of outer-space; in a spherical craft with large oval windows, surrounded by fellow crew persons, I am struck with a sudden sense of dread. Outside stuck to the glass and leering with soulful, black eyes — two ghostly “Anunnaki,” are attempting telepathic communications.

“That ain’t good,” I say to myself. What do they want with us; these harbingers of doom?

The picture becomes blurry and dims out — I awake disoriented.

The Anunnaki have transported me through time and space to a very different world than I am accustom to. For a purpose — their own evil purposes — I know not what. It is a world where imperial Rome never fell into the dark ages, but soldiered on into a 20th century not unlike Earth’s 1960’s.

The sword, slavery, games-to-the-death, debauchery, bread and circuses, are as natural to these Romans as to their progenitors — with all the modern conveniences technology has to offer.

Swordplay, begins in earnest as I fight for my life. I am an expert swordsman, but my opponent, is also adept with a blade. I fatally wound him and am rewarded with my freedom.

Now, a “freeman,” I cavort and celebrate with the other survivors. Slaves are brought in for our pleasure. I am particularly enamored of a young male slave but alas, my flirtations are rebuffed. I am alive but unsatisfied.

The picture becomes blurry and dims out — I awake disoriented.

Our mission, nearing completion, I am once again on board my craft. spacepersons, yawn and rub their eyes in an attempt to gain focus.

The captain, calls out “Set course for Daosiubaiu-Hygids-XIII …warp speed.

–Engage”

A superbly written piece by Denise Chow, of SPACE[dot]com, based on Texas State researcher’s trip to Lake Geneva’s Villa Diodati (some vacation) that is — if you believe Mary Shelley actually wrote the novel Frankenstein — in the first place.

“…a long-standing controversy over whether the account is true, or if the author took some liberties…”

Many ‘modern scholars’ doubt Mary Shelley even wrote the Novel at all. This in spite of the fact it was submitted to the publishers in her own handwriting. The fact is; Mary was a gifted copyist, taking dictation from her literary parents, Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin.

True enough, the original text of Frankenstein is definitively in Mary Shelley’s handwriting, but this is no argument for her authorship, because she often acted as scribe for Percy Bysshe Shelley, her husband and probable author of the novel.

Ad to this the fact, that none of her other published works come even close to the genius of Frankenstein, and you have a greater mystery than — was the Moon shining through her window on the night of her supposed monstrous inspiration’s birth?

London UFO–is it real?

A new viral video making the rounds on the Internet purports to show what’s been dubbed a “mothership” and at least three separate smaller alien spacecraft filmed in the skies over London.

The most famous video (which was taken anonymously and is one of two or three versions in circulation) shows a large glowing white oval moving in and out from behind clouds over the course of about 20 seconds, and then zooming off, with three white dots also making an appearance. — Space.com

One.

The teacher posed the question in the form of a mathematical equation…I struggled to understand…took notes in a little notebook he handed me…after some thought I reasoned an approximation was the closest I could get to ciphering his riddle…with somewhat less than complete confidence in my conclusion, I wrote…and the answer was: 4.2…but to ad to my frustration, the notebook in which I had done my problem solving, was nowhere to be found. Thinking 5 to be excessive, I stood by my answer. 4.2 it is.

In the above mentioned dream; the place or setting (from now on refer to as the “dream landscape”), is subservient to the basic narrative. What happens when the dream landscape is central to the narrative? J ust what exactly is a dream landscape? This ‘ll do nicely.

Joseph told his brothers two dreams which clearly portended his future elevation over them all, but which, for the present, simply caused them to hate him all the more (Genesis 37:1-11). In this frame of mind, they seized upon the first opportunity to get rid of the one of whom they spoke [of] as “the dreamer”.

Two.

We found ourselves…outside of our native lands–in Modern day Russia…hungry, tired and alone…cold and bleak, was the terrain…after stealing state secrets, the KGB was hot on our trail… some of the local folks could be depended upon for help…you struggled to learn a handful of phrases in an attempt to “blend in.” The journey, was fraught with danger…two tough young turks, attempted to waylay us…I produced a long stiletto knife,  stabbed and killed one…the other…ran off…the days were long and the nights were cold…stolen cars, trains and buses were our homes.

We are such stuff  as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep–or so says Prospero, in Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

There is in sleep something mysterious which seems, from the earliest times, to have impressed man and aroused his curiosity… But the mystery of sleeping is enhanced by the phenomenon of dream[s] which accompanies it.

Three.

The pantry being bare–necessitated a trip to the store…in addition to groceries there was  a small deli…outside, in the grounds existed a greenhouse and shed full of old tools…surrounded by what appeared to be loaves of bread piled up around it…literally growing up around it…the gardener was at hand and I ask what this strange thing was growing all around his shed. I was told it was a fungus not unlike the biblical “manna” the Israelites  fed upon in the wilderness…the gardener offered me some of this to eat…It was quite tasty, having the texture and smell of fresh baked bread…immediately, I suggested this would make a good sandwich–being so much like the real thing…and inquired as to the price…an answer was not forthcoming…vague…frustrated, I went into the deli repeating my question…no such luck…became apparent they had no desire to sell me any of this wonderful food…some secrets, have no price.

The dream unfolds.

We walk, run, fly and float through strange landscapes. Characters appear and turn into different people. Objects are transformed. A rope becomes a snake. Uncle Harry turns into a Tibetan monk and it all makes sense in some screwy, dreamlike way.

You’re getting sleepy.

The dreaming brain employs all of the same systems and networks,… but with a few critical differences. Input from the outside world is screened out. Self-awareness ceases. The body is paralyzed. And everything that the dreaming brain sees, hears or feels is generated from within.

I get this one a lot. A little musical interlude is in order, I think. I give you Travis.

Exactly my bloody question–could it be  ’cause you live in Scotland?

Lately, it would seem, the VPOTUS, have been inclined toward the nuclear option; at least as far as the Senate is concerned, and that’s only fitting as this is where the term ‘nuclear option‘ originated.  They’ve also been rather partial to another colorful euphemism.

In  June 2004, during a heated exchange on the U.S. Senate floor about Halliburton’s role in the reconstruction of Iraq, Vice President Dick Cheney told Democratic senator Patrick Leahy, “fuck yourself”. Coincidentally, Cheney’s outburst occurred on the same day that the Defense of Decency Act was passed in the Senate.[18]

The difference is that when Dick Cheney uses the word it’s vitriolic, and personal. When Joe Biden uses it, it’s usually something good–for Democrats, and comedy writers.



Times when the ‘F-Bomb’ is appropriate.

passing a stone
starting your car (when it’s already started)
coming home to a burgled house
landing on the wrong planet
watching Avatar
seeing flashing lights in your rear-view mirror
quitting the Tonight Show
mixing tequila with wine and beer
forgetting your parachute
911
Vice President, accidentally shoots you in the face with a shotgun

Times when the ‘F-Bomb’ is in-appropriate.

during a Bris Milah
on a crowded elevator (unless it stops unexpectedly)
the doctor looks at your x-rays
your mom catches you doing anything
at your courtroom sentencing
after saying the words “I do.” at your wedding
this is your pilot speaking… F**k!
your kids start acting up at Wal-Mart
policeman asks you to roll down your window
you are the Vice President within fifty feet of a microphone

A marble bust of Caligula restored to its original colors. The colors were identified from particles trapped in the marble.

Contrary to popular belief, the Roman emperor Caligula; a redhead, we now know, did not marry his horse Incitatus, instead, suggested said beast be made a Roman Consul. The emperor, did in fact procured him a wife–a mare named Penelope. History is silent as to whether they were formally joined as stud and mare, but I imagine it must have been an ecstatic soi·rée.

Flash forward some 2000 years.

Wannabe senator J.D. Hayworth, currently giving Senator McCain, a run for his money in Arizona’s 2010 Senate race; thinks that a recent Massachusetts Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage could somehow “…lead to a man someday marrying his horse. ”  Who knows, Wilber. Maybe so, maybe no.

Seems like a trend here. Take (please) the apply named anti-choice anti-homo freak Neal Horsley, who actually admitted to having had sex with a mule–before he found Jesus! Well, that’s OK then.

Speaking of old movies, the legendary (ta FrankenSteam, anyway) ‘Pasoliniesque’ Italian film director Tinto Brass; Salon Kitty, has been hinting around at a re-make of his decades old film “Caligula,” in 3D! This hot on the heels of pots-of-money being made on films such as “Avatar” and “Alice In Wonderland.” No surprise, as Hollywood goes there the money goes. Yet Bass, who claims it was the Americans who tainted his mainstream porn movie, now strangely, looks to America again, in the guise of  technology, for vindication.

Tinto Brass, the 76-year-old Italian film-maker behind the notorious 1979 epic, announces plans to revisit project ‘ruined by Americans.’

Some advise, Direttore Brass, from the film underground;  don’t let ’em get their filthy hands on your work. They’ll just ‘cock’ it up like they did the last time.

…as though Ed Wood Jr. had attempted to film a script by Thomas Pynchon about a script Pynchon secretly wrote to be adapted by Wood. — J. Hoberman Village Voice

Unrelentingly lurid and equally hilarious, Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America might be an X-ray of a rabid slacker’s seething brain… 48-minute[s]… of underground agitprop.

This nutty little item suggests that conspiracy thinking is a Frankenstein monster which inevitably destroys its creator (First you have the conspiracy theory, and then the conspiracy theory has you).
