Was Bowie a Starseed?

For many (most? all?) of the readers of this blog, that seems like a particularly dumb*ss question.  Sorry for the “coarse language,” but it really seems to be the only way to fully express the sentiment.  David Bowie HAD to be a Starseed (or Wanderer).

For those who are not familiar with the term, I will not elaborate here.  (Much discussion can be found elsewhere.)  But Starseeds / Wanderers (many debate the nuances and differences between those, if any difference really does exist) are characterized by a sense of alienation that starts at an early age and never goes away.  This isn’t just alienation in the community or neighborhood; it is a sense that one is from another planet from another galaxy.

Bowie’s content, both in music and in acting, focused either directly or indirectly on this kind of thing.  From the disoriented Major Tom who drifted off in space through Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars to “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” Bowie wrote (and acted and performed) this theme repeatedly over a number of years.

If you think you might be a starseed or wanderer, and you have not seen “Man Who Fell to Earth,” see it as soon as you can.  Opt for the uncut version if you can handle adult issues involving sexuality.  Chances are good you will feel a striking familiarity with this story.  (One caveat: some parts of it are quite disturbing.)

 

Current Moon transiting Uranus: Tesla’s Last letters to his mother

Fiesta Estrellas

Dear Tesla,

I am sorry that humankind kept you back from your personal life, and never understood you, nor what you tapped into.

Love, Ka

For some reason, today, I encountered this article, and decided to share it on Word Press. The Moon in Leo is transiting Uranus in Aries. I thought I’d light a candle for Tesla…

“Friday, November 20…

I didn’t write to the Patent office, one of their agents came and I told him about my intentions in person. He said he was sorry, but the dates could not be changed because all the congressmen have already determined them. I went down to the Waterfalls and told the boys to prepare the turbines and wait for my call tomorrow.

I have decided to provide the mankind with the gift it deserves and to retourn to Europe, to You, Mother. Governments here are the same…

Debatable News

Debatable News: Mainstream to Tinfoil Hat and more

We focus on the more controversial news.  Almost all of the content is in the form of “reblogs” from other sources.  Just because we reblog it does NOT mean we endorse it, agree with it, or even thing it is legitimate.  We do NO fact checking, so you are “own your own” regarding the question of veracity.  What we do is echo out to our readers the most controversial, and sometimes “crazy,” news that we can find.  (Some of it is quite mainstream, and some of it is not.)

Halloweenie ~ A Duet

The Migraine Chronicles

A Halloween Story with Nottooold2

A windy, chilly All Hallows Eve
My baby cuddled up on the couch with me
A creak, a crack, what can that be?
My big strong man gets up to see

On highest alert I scan for danger
Apparition, ghost or stranger
No demon or ghoul, nothing to fear
For here in my arms, there is safety my dear

Relaxed and cozy, my mind at ease
Easily getting back to my baby’s needs
A moan, a groan, did I hear a howl
With devilish eyes, he pulls me to the shower

A howl and growl from deep within
Breath and heart racing, ready for sin
With nibble and bite passions ignite
Feigning a struggle, as lovers do fight

Naked, wet, soapy and slick
She whispers to him, “treat or a trick”
Before he answers, she’s on her knees
Taking her own treat, his Halloweenie

Dr. John’s Marie Laveau

Marie Laveau

(Dr. John)

Now there lived a conjure-lady, not long ago,
In New Orleans, Louisiana – named Marie Laveau.
Believe it or not, strange as it seem,
She made her fortune selling voodoo, and interpreting dreams.

She was known throughout the nation as the Voodoo Queen.
Folks come to her, from miles and miles around,
She sure know how to put that, that voodoo down.

To the voodoo lady they all would go,
The rich, the educated, the ignorant and the poor.
She’d snap her fingers, and shake her head,
She’d tell them ’bout their lovers – livin’ or dead.

Now an old, old lady named widow Brown,
Asked why her lover, stopped comin’ around
The voodoo gazed at her and squawked
I seen him kissin’ a young girl, up at Shakespeare’s Park
Hanging on an oak tree, in the dark.

Oh Marie Laveau, Oh Marie Laveau,
Oh Marie…

What Can I Fix?

Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai hid from the Romans in a cave for thirteen years. There he was visited by heavenly beings, by Elijah the prophet and even by Moses. It was there that he composed the holy Zohar.

When he left the cave and came to a town, he did not say, “Let me enlighten you with the inner light of Torah, the light that has been hidden since the six days of creation.”

He said, “What is there in your town that I can fix?”

Whatever knowledge a human being is given in this world, whatever wisdom, enlightenment or inspiration, it is all only and exclusively for one purpose: To assist him to fix up this world.

Likkutei Sichot, volume 32, page 152, based on Talmud, Shabbat 33b.
