The Sirius Super Stargate Bowl

I actually missed the opening minutes of the Super Bowl on purpose, tuning in at the coin toss. Big mistake. The victorious New Orleans Saints took to the field to the dramatic strains of "Sirius" by the Alan Parsons Project, also the theme song for the Chicago (Apis) Bulls. Cheers to an anonymous reader for the tip.

"Sirius" is the intro to the Project's 1982 hit "Eye in the Sky."

UPDATE: Remember that the "O" in the The Who logo is also the sigil for Mars.


  1. Great stuff Chris!

    Sirius with Lyrics

    "A"lan "P"arsons "P"roject
    AP-P / APIS (pn: ah-pee) indeed,
    good eye!


  2. Woah! There just aren't enough avocados in Walmart to make enough Holy Guacamole to capture what's "goin' down" these days.

    Ready for a cosmological/history/astrology/astronomy lesson?? I'm posting this part as it's pertinent to SIRIUS BUT - watch the entire series to KNOW what and more importantly 'who's' history has been hidden from us and why we need to 'see' it now:

    George Washitaw was just a front (what's new) behind the REAL patriot Benjamin Banna Ka aka, apparently and allegedly: BENJAMIN FRANKLIN who was A MOOR!!:

    PT 6/10-Benjamin Banneker Masons & Moors (this'll really p**s 'em off!!):


    I love that piece of music "Sirius" but I never ever knew who it was by or what it was called!!! Thanks for that too!!

    Love n hugs

  3. bah. the saints we always going to win. should have put money on this.

  4. they came on the field to 'eye in the sky' by the alan parson project. ask doctor evil


  5. @Anony, Chris (anyone)...

    I too thought that "SIRIUS" was the name given to the 90 second or so hevily echoed arpeggio based instrumental that APP does before "Eye in the Sky"??


  6. I agree with Sukyspook, there is just not enough Holy Guacamole to make sense of this one..............The Who!?! doin a MEDLEY of all their shit-kicking songs, well I ask you. Also, listening to the Alan Parson Project whilst watchin the Who playing (sound down)was most interesting. Wot is Going On?
    Imbolc Floss x

  7. "Meet the new boss....same as the old boss" reminds me of Palin's "hopey/changey thing" comment - most intelligent thing she was ever scripted to say imo!!

    I have to admit to having seen The Who (world health organization??) live a couple of times here in what used to be jolly old England. Pity Roger's voice is not as good as it was, still, the lyrics may have been somewhat relevant in the 70's but BOY - are they SPOT ON for today!!:

    "We'll be fighting in the streets

    With our children at our feet

    And the morals that they worship will be gone

    And the men who spurred us on

    Sit in judgement of all wrong

    They decide and the shotgun sings the song

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

    Take a bow for the new revolution

    Smile and grin at the change all around

    Pick up my guitar and play

    Just like yesterday

    Then I'll get on my knees and pray


    The change, it had to come

    We knew it all along

    We were liberated from the fold, that's all

    And the world looks just the same

    And history ain't changed

    'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

    Take a bow for the new revolution

    Smile and grin at the change all around

    Pick up my guitar and play

    Just like yesterday

    Then I'll get on my knees and pray

    We don't get fooled again

    No, no!

    I'll move myself and my family aside

    If we happen to be left half alive

    I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky

    Though I know that the hypnotized never lie

    Do ya?

    There's nothing in the streets

    Looks any different to me

    And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye

    And the parting on the left

    Are now parting on the right

    And the beards have all grown longer overnight

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

    Take a bow for the new revolution

    Smile and grin at the change all around

    Pick up my guitar and play

    Just like yesterday

    Then I'll get on my knees and pray

    We don't get fooled again

    Don't get fooled again

    No, no!"


    W A K E U P and for goodness sake DO SOMETHIIIIIIIIING!!!


  8. hi Secret,
    your Geek is definitely showing, and I mean that in the best way! "Sirius," has been blasted in arenas since the first AV guy or Marketing guy at a sports complex heard it and learned that amazingly realistic facsimiles were readily available in either HiFi or Mono. Since then, look out, horrific light displays, all sorts of goofy irrelevant nonsense has been added.

    The amazing vastness of the universe is really just one distorted metaphor for the power of OUR TEAM.

    (no, I don't mean Dat team, the Saints, I mean whatever team is collecting the advertising fees)

    - Lorraine
    go geeks!

  9. Dude, you missed a Sirius connection!

    The Babylonians referred to Sirius as “The Arrow.”

    Universal ran a “Robin Hood” trailer.

    i.e. Robin Hood shooting things with ARROWS.

    You know, Robin Hood was a one heck'of a Socialist. Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor; quite literally! [I bet if the government robbed us on the highway, Robin Hood style, people would be less likely to support broken Social programs]

    Maybe we'll get bankrupt to a New World Order?

  10. Hello Chris,
    Haven't been posting here for quite sometimes, but just wanted to say nice haircut ehehe :)

    keep up the good work and great podcast, loved it.

  11. Hey Chris, i just coincidentally (or not) happened to be reading up on the "Nebra Sky Disk" - the thing supposedly features one of your "sun boat" horseshoe/wormhole-riding friends... not to mention the Pleiades... (the Watchtower's favorite star cluster)

  12. Greg- You know it, no pun intended. Or is it?

    Strangey- Good Eye- no pun intended. Or is it?

    Suky- I remember those guys! They use to preach in the old Times Square. Then the cops pushed them farther and farther towards Port Authority.

    Anony- If I'd been watching from the beginning I'd have told you all to bet the farm on them.

    Anony234- Hilarity. Guilty pleasure of mine.

    Floss- What IS going on? Well, a whole lot of weird.

    SukyII Oh, we will get fooled again. Or maybe not we, but certainly enough to screw everything up.

    Lorraine- Oh, I'm familiar with the tune, which is why I put the Bulls vid in. The point here is that team running onto the field at this particular game to that particular tune. If it were any other team- meaning a team from a city that wasn't recently underwater- it wouldn't have the same meaning at all.

    引っ掛ける- Here in America we have a different kind of Socialism. It's like that Monty Python sketch- steal from the poor and the middle class and give to the super-rich. It's basically Socialism for them and Social Darwinism for us.

  13. Daniel- Like it? I did it myself!

    Agonus- Ah, the Pleiades. I'm currently reading a book about Billy Meier, so nice sync there.

  14. Did you ever see the Bulls logo upside down? the robot reading a book.

    I have that tattoo on my leg, got it in 1996 and it's comical cause it's upside down from my point of view.

    HERE IS AN ARTICLE ON IT [the logo]:

    Plus the guy who made that bulls logo also did that famous fighting Irish logo.

  15. 引っ掛ける, just riffing here but how many trillions might it cost 'the world' to re-build an unearthed ancient 'Stargate to Sirius'??


  16. @Chris,
    here's a SIRIUS (Canis Major) sync... check out drudgereport.com with the snowy Big Dog picture up now.


  17. Well, Mr Knowles,
    You look like you cut your own hair......And You Did!
    Transformation time is here, and it's self generated.

  18. Alright, I'm casting the Secret Sun movie. "Secret Sun : Knowles on Parade", guess who plays you?


    Also, make not of the ever present 17.

    Also, 4give me, I know not what eye do.


  19. Just an aside on the subject of Avatar; I heard from someone recently that in the film development stage there was audience testing on the Na'vi to make them appeal to humans. Before the test they had had gills but Cameron decided to remove them to make the the Naavi seem more humanlike and attractive.

  20. @Strange Eye:

    Now, who said anything about REBUILDING a Stargate?

    I'd wager there's quite a few already in existence.

    Heck, if they're anything like the New God's motherboxes, I bet any obnoxious teenager can walk right into “Sirius Circuit City” and purchase the latest Stargate phone, with full galactic coverage. [Although, I'd hate to see the price of said cell-phone plan]

    @The Secret Sun:

    There's this Japanese movie, シリウスの伝説 "The Legend of Sirius”

    I'm not sure if it has ever been in English [probably not; it's full of incest related squick]; it's about a Sea God named Sirius falling in love with a Fire Goddess. Essentially it's the Osiris/Set myth reenacted by fairy-nymphs. It's chuck full of weird symbolic stuff, like a magical eclipse and dark vs. light.

    *giggles* definitely worth checking out.

  21. You know, some people misunderstand "Won't Get Fooled Again", it's not just some pro-revolution song, my take, it's a plea from Townshend to not replace one charismatic leader with another, and fall into the same traps, but to become our own leader, and not follow the fold. It's more than just some anarchy rant, as it actually questions the merits of Revolution through violent ends. The story about the "Lifehouse" concept is a fascinating one that people should check out.

  22. During my college year(1), Alan Parsons was voted the best vocals in the world. I robot was the beggining of the tech/wired movement/electronica.. I enjoy their music today as much as ever. They seemed to open up possibilities in the psychic realm. The interception runback for a touchdown seemed scripted to me, in the super bowl. Give them who dats some ju joos. Who is that? not, whos dat. Dennis

  23. Quarkie- I'm getting flashbacks to my sports licensing days!

    Strangey- Grabbed it. May put it in a picture parade.

    Flossy- I had a lot of practice on my boys. They spent their youths looking like little blond Curious Georges. Wait a minute- they still do.

    Toothy- Can I recommend George Clooney or Brad Pitt for the part instead?

    Astro-That's interesting. If you find a link on that, drop it on us.

    引っ掛ける- Squick? Not familiar with that term. That movie sure sounds interesting though.

    Matt- Looks like Obama voters didn't pay heed to Townsend's warning.

    Dennis- Oh, I loved I Robot back in my Prog days. Thought Eye in the Sky was too Air Supply...

  24. Clooney it is.

    Also, I see all of these symbols bubbling to the surface and I walk away with one thought. Humanity will incorporate and surpass our current technology naturally and use light/energetic based technology.

    I vehemently oppose that cold, filthy technogarbage based future. It just doesn't resonate.

    I know it doesn't have anything to do with this thread but I had to get that off my chest.


  25. I keep forgetting this, for some reason (probably in reaction to the fuss and stupidity that always accompanies these occasions), but in a couple of weeks my department will be moving us all into a new building - the Sirius Building. Its named after HMS Sirius, flagship of the first fleet that brought British soldiers, convicts and a handful of free settlers to Australia.

  26. Just checking in to say hello Christopher.

    So glad you are having fun.

  27. Toothy- I don't know what the post-war period will bring, but hopefully we will have a more holistic ideal of technology.

    Brooke- Well, I first got hep to all of this Sirius business when a company by that name published my comic and the publisher lent me his copy of Sirius Mystery. Jeez- that was 15 years ago.

    Song- Thanks for checking in, Songie!

  28. OMG!! I hadn't noticed the 'cutty-hairy-thing.....'.

    Remember like Samson, your strength is in your hair and it's said in some circles to be an antenna, presumably to Sirius!!

    Personally (but who asked me anyway) I'm a longer hair gal.

    What does The Missus think Chris??

    (Mrs Chris - I bet you wished you'd put the clippers/scissors out of reach - the 'boy' has sadly become the 'man' - just between us girls of course).

    Love ya with or without the locks - but preferably with!


  29. Actually, my hair is so damn dense it was blocking the signals from Zeti Reticuli. So I had to stick paperclips and bits of wire into my skull to boost the signal. That wasn't a good look for me.

    Not to worry Suk- this mop grows quickly. Should I grow a goatee now?

  30. Phew Chris - glad you didn't revive the punk era by sticking said paper clips through your extremities - ooh matron!!:

    Carry on Camping - Ooh matron!


    As for a goatee -

  31. Good lookin' out on that Passion Pit, I'm lovin' this album. That Little Secrets is nice.

    I found the vid online. Not great quality though. Check it out while you can.


  32. Perhaps it's time to revisit the Alien Dreaming and the Widening Gyre, which discusses the work of Ken Russell, who directed The Who's rock opera Tommy.


  33. all the cool kids have goatees now, CK. resistance is futile.

  34. Suky- My facial hair comes in an unsightly mix of brown, red, blond, black and grey. It looks like a calico. So clean-shaven it is!

    Toothy- That's where I got the vid that kept crashing all of my browsers. It played for you?

    Jason- Good work- got that up on today's post.

    Doug- See above.

  35. Chris, yes it does. I just rechecked it again to make sure.

    I'm on a mac if that makes a difference.

  36. On one of the longest and fascinating threads ever (I think) running over at glp (sorry, I just can't help myself) the OP just remarked that the "stage on which the WHO performed was a UFO" ie the standard 'as sold' saucer shape ufo that is...

    I pondered about that set...but just didn't 'see' a ufo at the time. However, as always with perfect 20/20 hindsight....of course it was a 'UFO' - duh - already landed too!!!

    What was I saying about "won't get fooled again" lolol!!
