Examination of More Cartoons Than Animation

Meteor Shower of 1933

My rhyming skills
got you climbing hills
I travel through your mind
into your spine
like siren drills

- Eminem

Bonnie and Clyde in 1933

Last month, there was a rare cosmic event. 
There were 2 eclipses in the same month.  

On October 8th there was a Lunar Eclipse 
and on October 23rd there was a Solar Eclipse.

About the Total Lunar Eclipse, early Wednesday morning, October 8th
© Copyright 2014 ~ Divine Harmony All Rights Reserved:

“(The eclipse brings) huge focus to the endings, changes, transformations, death and rebirth experiences playing out in the collective masculine/feminine dynamic and in relationships of all kinds. "

“This really intense Uranus/Pluto dynamic has a life of it’s own and when an eclipse comes along to trigger it- it can be like throwing more fuel on the already hot and dynamic transformational fire…”

“We see quite the picture shaping up for radical shifts, changes, endings and new beginnings in our personal and collective lives.

“The main fixed star in the chart is Alpheratz. Alpheratz is a fixed star that demands freedom and movement- it does not like being hemmed in.  We may find our action/anger/aggression energies heightened.

“Considering Mars is the ruler of this lunation and he is out of bounds- meaning he goes beyond the bounds of the Sun and has his energy more purely expressed I see a recipe for action, illumination, inspiration and innovation. 

“With the Libra evolutionary focus we are asked to find balance, work towards peace, and work in harmony with each other- in a way that promotes compromise and collaboration rather than simply sweeping things under the carpet…”  

“If you are proactive about making changes in your life and taking responsibility for your own evolution- then the evolutionary potential of the Eclipse opens up to you! 

“This is not to say that as you become more conscious you can control everything more- but rather that as you become more conscious you become better able to be present and centered in your life, no matter what comes at you.  And from this place even destruction can be seen as a creative act- birthing you into something new.”

About the Solar Eclipse, early Wednesday morning, October 28th
Paraphrased from reading By KELLEY ROSANO:

“(October 28th's) A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth align and we see the Moon moving across the face of the Sun.  This alignment disrupts the usual flow of solar energy, dissolving old energy and behavior patterns so something new can manifest

“At a solar eclipse, we get to see the planting of the solar seed in the New Moon’s womb, and are therefore more conscious of what the possibilities are for this cycle.  As you can see, solar eclipses create extra powerful New Moons, marking times of major endings and new beginnings to an aspect of your life...”

“Scorpio wants us to feel what the right action is to take, and that means seriously looking into the unconscious to understand what we really feel and want out of life.  Not what we think we should want.   Not what we’ve been told to want.  But what we truly desire.  

“And that means understanding our feelings of vulnerability and our fears concerning betrayal, violence, rejection and self-worth, and the unconscious defense mechanisms which keep us from our authentic truth.”

“…Scorpio’s strength is that it isn’t afraid of the Dark, and so when the Sun is in Scorpio, it is a perfect time to look at our Shadows andsee what we’ve been in fear of, suppressing and repressing.”

“When we can look within and see how those stuck emotional patterns keep us from what we truly want in life, we can consciously choose to shed those old patterns like a snake skin.  What may have protected us in the past no longer serves our on-going life and we have to die to an old way of being and acting, to be re-born to a higher level of consciousness.”

“…When we go through dark times, we often feel alone.  But Spirit is always helping us, even when we don’t recognize it.  Fortunately, for this solar eclipse, we will recognize the touch of Spirit.

“Neptune in Pisces surrounds us with compassion as we go through our releases, and then gives us a strong hit of imagination to help us create new patterns.

                     Make no mistake, this is a war-like energy.

Happy Anniversary To Me!

This time last year
I was in a room
and Eminem
was in the same room
but he was behind glass
doing an interview
and I was staring at him
through the glass
like a mental patient
because he was
so sexy
and handsome
and mysterious
and funny
and charming
and interesting
and reflective
and I wanted to
smash the
and run away with him.

Maybe I need a straightjacket,
face facts I am nuts for real,
but I'm okay with that
It's nothing,
I'm still friends with the monster
That's under my bed
Get along with the voices
inside of my head
You're trying to save me
Stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy
Yeah, you think I'm crazy

Well, that's nothing.

- Eminem

Rebirth Road

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
-Jimi Hendrix

“In my own worst seasons I've come back from the colorless world of despair by forcing myself to look hard, for a long time, at a single glorious thing: a flame of red geranium outside my bedroom window. And then another: my daughter in a yellow dress. And another: the perfect outline of a full, dark sphere behind the crescent moon. Until I learned to be in love with my life again. Like a stroke victim retraining new parts of the brain to grasp lost skills, I have taught myself joy, over and over again.” 
 Barbara Kingsolver, High Tide in Tucson: Essays from Now or Never

“Then came the healing time, hearts started to shine, soul felt so fine, oh what a freeing time it was.”
― AberjhaniChristmas When Music Almost Killed the World

Going Through Changes

Closed Path

I thought that my voyage had come to its end
at the last limit of my power,
that the path before me was closed,
that provisions were exhausted
and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity.

But I find that thy will knows no end in me.
And when old words die out on the tongue,
new melodies break forth from the heart;
and where the old tracks are lost,
new country is revealed with its wonders.
Rabindranath Tagore    
(1861 - 1941) 
Bengali poet and first non-European to win the
Nobel Prize in Literature.

Started a new job.

First thing I did was hang this over my desk.

Eminem's music has been getting me though a really dark time these last few weeks.

That and watching shows about ghosts for some reason is helping me feel better.

I think I like hanging out with dead people just like me.
The songs Mosh and Beautiful Pain have been keeping me feeling like there is a point to all of this shit we call life. 
Today I thought I would just fucking die, just drop down dead because I had nothing left to give.
Then I put Eminem on in my headphones, and I kept Beautiful Pain on a loop and just kept it moving.

When I got to work
I decided to reward myself
for still being alive
by buying a new Eminem shirt
so I can wear my heart
on my sleeve.


Then I saw the good news.


Thank you, God.

Come along
follow me
as I lead through the darkness
As I provide
just enough spark
that we need to proceed
Carry on,

give me hope,
give me strength
Come with me

and I won't steer you wrong
Put your faith

and your trust
as I guide us
through the fog
To the light

at the end of the tunnel
We gonna fight,

we gonna charge,
we gonna stomp,
we gonna march
Through the swamp,

we gonna mosh
through the marsh
Take us right

through the doors (c'mon)

All the people

up top on the side
and the middle
Come together

lets all bomb and swamp
just a little
Just let it gradually build

from the front to the back
All you can see

is a sea of people
some white and some black
Don't matter what color,

all that matters
we gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause

don't matter the weather
If it rains let it rain,

yea the wetter the better
They ain't gonna stop us

they can't,
we stronger now
more than ever
They tell us no
we say yea,
they tell us stop
we say go
Rebel with a rebel yell,

raise hell
we gonna let em know

- Eminem

I can feel the heat rising

Everything is on fire
Today's a painful reminder of why
We can only get brighter
The further you put it behind ya
And right now I'm on the inside
Lookin out, cause
Standing in the flames

It's a beautiful kinda pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find the light, find the light, find the light.

Beautiful Pain

2014 The Year Of The Hyena

Eminem's influence over the arts is spreading into books and I LOVE BOOKS! So when I found out one of my favorite Shade45 on-air truth speakers was writing a book I damn near lost my mutherfucking mind.

Rude Jude is an author. A crazy, original, comet of a writer.  I didn't know this man was keeping a blog–which I just started reading last night, because his book was so fucking good that now I am hooked like a crack-whore on his brazen sentence structures and bare back, soul fucking fearlessness as a storyteller and earth traveller in general, SO I am glad I have his blog to explore so I can get a fix of his beautiful madness and lust for life. I can suck his words like a greedy baby vampire and get drunk on his genius.

When I woke up this morning all I could think was what a great movie Hyena would be for Shady Films to make! In the tradition of 8 Mile, a film about another artist from Detroit, showing his hard scrabble rise to becoming a world class author, which he will be when the millions of people who love fearless writers start catching on to what the fuck is happening in this man's mind, and thankfully coming out of his mouth and hands.

A Hyena film would be such a great way to celebrate the love of authors, books, reading and writing (prose) into the street culture. Books have been abandoned for too long in the street.

And because my hero, Eminem, the Rap God, gave Rude Jude a shout out, and a place on Sirius, I get to discover and enjoy this wonderful writer. So thank you, to you my God, Eminem for lighting the flame of artistic revolution around you. Eminem's men and women on Sirius are like messengers from the Brightest Star in the Universe. A Hyena movie would be a masterpiece, a tribute to the wild ones who ride their words out of the shadows to soar into bright beautiful, futures and enjoy happy endings.

The end.
