Jude's Threshold

A Tapestry Blog of Astrology, Politics, and Social Concerns

Is this a perfect expression of inflationary Jupiter-Neptune?

In what may be one of the clearer expressions in the ‘real world’ of the recent pairing by Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune, that speculative ‘carny showman’ duet of planetary energies, the ticket sales of Avatar are proving to be grossly (Jupiter) spun (Neptune) to impress the public with its nature as a ‘spectacular spectacular’ (in the words of the seedy characters of ‘Moulin Rouge’.)

Blue people have been used before. 3-D glasses aren’t new, just tossed by the trendy wayside a while, now picked up for a temporary run of popularity which may prove ephemeral and costly.

Well, I shall wish good fortune to all the theaters that had to install new equipment or whatever it takes to show a 3-D film to advantage.

Wonder how blue people will come across on the small screen? I feel a rental coming on…

Besides, ‘Avatar’ will have to be out of the souped-up 3-D theaters by March 5 because Alice and the White Rabbit are about to spring a new version of their adventures underground or wherever…one more time. Now this may be the ultimate and all-time perfect vehicle for Tim Burton and it kinda scares and intrigues me to think how mind-bending Burton’s film about Lewis Carroll’s character, Alice, could turn out to be.

Mind-expansion on the way, dear public! Cast your collective eyes this way, ladies and gentlemen!

Yet back in Carroll’s day certain substances were not considered illegal. ‘Lewis Carroll’ was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, math and logics professor at Oxford, controversial photographer, and, at age 33, a published author of the most translated children’s book in history. Among its most avid early readers were a young Oscar Wilde and Queen Victoria. Some readership, hmm? No pressure there.

Yes, it was June 1865 when ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ came to light after a brief stint as ‘Alice’s Adventures Under Ground’ and I’m quite certain you know the rest of the boat-trip-up-the-Thames story and its aftermath.

If you do, this frees me to wonder what barriers of perception will be broken with an updated, timely version of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and yet I must ask: can ‘Avatar’ glasses do double duty for ‘Alice’?

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
