Mindbomb: Face to (the) Face (on Mars)

That's Orion that Kirby is drawing there...

This is awesome: two of my favorite visionary madmen, Jack Kirby and Richard Hoagland, meet in Cyberspace in Hoagland's exploration of Mars Face symbolism in pop culture, which touches on Kirby's astonishingly prescient Face on Mars story.

The Shemsu Hor, or Following the Followers

Terry Melanson of raised this very important issue in the comments to yesterday's posting...
So what you seem to be saying, as far as I can tell, is that these "Followers of Horus," the secret priests of the secret society of Shemsu Hor which, according to Egyptian records, existed before time was recorded, are the real string-pullers even today. They have constructed all the competing hermetic and kabbalistic occult doctrines and have been the real "Unknown Superiors" alluded by the Elus Cohen, the Strict Observance, the Golden and Rosy Cross, and Theosophy. And further, that it is these Shemsu Hor who are behind the pervasiveness of sun symbolism?

My Newsstand Oracle

When I was a kid my life revolved around Valles' News (pronounced Valis' News). It was one of those old-school variety stores that even had a lunch counter in my early days.

Astronaut Theology: Chariot of the God

Have you seen the Pontiac Solstice, the latest and hottest sports car on the market? It's a little out of my price range, but of course I'm fascinated by its name.

Sync Log: Astronaut Theology

Well, Yahoo is also celebrating the beginning of Ancient Astronaut Week by featuring some NASA space colonization puff pieces on their front page. The conditioning process is certainly picking up speed.

Astronaut Theology: Let's Go to the Movies!

There's a very interesting triple-feature playing in the IMAX Dome Theatre, located at the Liberty Science Center, which is part of Liberty State Park.

Scottish Sunday: Gently, Johnny


I've been puzzling for weeks about which band I wanted to kick off Scottish Sundays with. Big Country, the band that ruled my late teenaged years? Pilot, whose hit "Magic" inspired me during the magical Spring of 1975? The Cocteau Twins? Pre-sellout Simple Minds?
