Yahooccultism: Crowned with the Sun

You know, I never noticed how much the CMS installation at CERN resembled old Sol. No surprise they're searching for the "God Particle" there. Hopefully the overweening narcissism of the current generation of scientists won't be all of our undoing. 

I must admit that very time I see a CERN headline I can't help but flash back to The Quiet Earth.

Dog Days: The Hits Just Keep On Coming

NOTE: Scroll down for updates

Well, the Sun is blazing all across the globe. It's summer- the Dog Days- and the symbols are flying like grackles in the grove. It seems like I'm doing a lot of these posts recently, but you gotta fish when they're bitin'. 

 That blue and gold Sol there is from a story in the UK press- the British company is paying off illegal immigrants at Calais to go back home. I guess wages have been driven down enough. 

For the time being, at least.

Secret Star Trek: Susan Oliver, Sex on Wings

The Outer Limits would inspire - and lend creative personnel -- to two other landmark sci-fi series of the 1960s, series whose numinous power continues to overshadow any of the formulaic bilge that has passed itself off as science fiction in recent years. 

Both series were Gnostic to their cores; Astro-Gnostic, to be precise. Perhaps all good sci-fi must be.
