Secret Sun Picture Parade: Post-Solstice Edition

The big story is still the BP Gulf spill, yet another real-life fiasco foreshadowed on The X-Files. While working up the big XF post over the weekend I remembered that the rig in question was called the 'Orpheus', yet more descent-to-the-underworld Mystery symbolism in the XF Mythology.

The Exegesis: The Age of Entropy

We all know the origin of the term "Dog Days," but I often remember seeing it used in the papers to describe the midsummer doldrums, when everyone was on vacation and nothing was really getting done.

Have You Ever Wondered...


 ... why we here in America (and several other countries) celebrate Father's Day around the time of the Summer Solstice? Of course, it comes a little earlier in 2012- it will be celebrated on the 17th.

17, the Green Sun and Deepwater on the Horizon

I've been doing the kind of work that I publish here on the Secret Sun for a very long time now. And when I go public with an idea or meme it's usually only after a long period of study. So when I talk about water/ocean symbolism or the 17 meme or the Gus Grissom Cult, it's because I've gotten hit after hit after hit with them in my research.

What the Heaven Happened?

Once upon a time some of the greatest secular music artists came out of the Church, and many of them never left. Artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye, and Sam Cooke did some of their most fiery and passionate music in the Gospel field. 

But can you name a single modern Christian Contemporary artist?

What the Hell is Going on Up There... or Down Here?


At the same time (late January 2010) that the anomalous objects were photographed in orbit around the Sun we saw bizarre aerial phenomena over Australia, specifically bizarre formations in non-random geometrical arrangements. The first of these appeared two days before the objects were photographed around the Sun.

What the Hell is Going on Up There, Redux

Do you remember this story from 2008?
Unusually quiet Sun has scientists worried The Sun has been strangely calm this year. For more than 200 days so far this year, no sunspots have been observed. In fact the Sun has been quieter this year than in any year since 1954, when it was calm for 241 days.

Alien Hunter: The Secret Stargate Sequel


There was a sequel to the Stargate feature film, did you hear about it? No, not that glorified LARP of a series, Stargate SG-1. No, this sequel features James Spader reprising his role of Daniel Jackson.

Vampires, Vixens and Death from Above

Well, it's getting to be that time again, when heavenly shades of night begin to fall and teenaged girls count every second sweeping across the clock's face. Yes, on June 30, the new Twilight film hits the screen, unleashing a host of clandestine memes on an unsuspecting world.

The Lucid Hallucinations of Trevor Von Eeden

You find wisdom in 
the strangest places

Well, it's that time of year again- Slave to the Gods mode.
Plenty of hot coffee and too many sunrises peeking in through the window. But strangely enough I keep having this hallucination- it's actually like the original "Secret Sun" dream. It will be well past midnight and I will swear that the Sun is out.

Gods and Mermaids: The Secret Sun Goes Nationwide

Here's the 20/20 spot on Superheroes- that voiceover at the end is mine. And here are a few snippets from the article on the piece, written by the unbelievably cool Jon Meyersohn. And being mentioned in the same breath as Elaine Pagels?
