Phoenix Rising, Charlotte Allen's Weak Women, The Antichrist: 2013 Should Be A Spectacular Year

Leaning Towards Solace from Sigur Rós Valtari Mystery Films on Vimeo.

Sigur Rós ‘Valtari’ Mystery Film Experiment: Leaning Towards Solace
Directed by: Floria Sigismondi

We start the new year with a beautiful, conceptual film starring Elle Fanning and John Hawkes in ‘Leaning Towards Solace’, part of Sigur Rós’ Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, in which they’ve urged different artists to create short films inspired by songs off their new album Valtari. Follow the link for many other outstanding films that provoke and inspire thought. See also Sigur Rós’ blog.

“Leaning Towards Solace” was made by Black Dog Films and was directed by Floria Sigismondi.

The concept of the Phoenix, found in Greek mythology and also that of Egypt, is supremely threatening to social conservatives who argue that it’s just another anti-Christ, anti-American concept. Anne of Carversville finds Phoenix Rising concept, which represents the reinvigoration of female values and principles into our thinking, of great interest. Our ideas put us at major odds with Charlotte Allen.

Selita Ebanks | Kanye West ‘Runaway’ Full Video Embedded

I went to sleep last night with the most preposterous thoughts, perhaps inspired by watching the hate videos posted yesterday on AOC, on the 150th anniversary of America’s Emancipation Proclamation.

Rarely do I hoot in the dark, saying “Oh, God, Anne. That is a ridiculous thought!” Probably so.

Watching Floria Sigismondi’s beautiful, haunting film above, I couldn’t help thinking of Kanye West’s ‘Runaway’. I’ve posted it again within the context of this new intellectual meditation.

Symbols of the ancient Phoenix are deplored by ardent social conservatives as signifying the rise of the anti-Christ in the form of Lucifer. The Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes. The symbol is also tied to the ‘Masonic Christ’, considered by today’s social conservative Republicans to represent the global threat of a new world order.

Charlotte Allen’s Bonfire

Conservative pundit, anti-feminist Charlotte Allen, argues at the National Review that men would have made all the difference in the Newtown massacre, simply because they are male. National Review published Allen’s controversial piece on last week, where she attributed the massacre to Sandy Hook’s female staff and its “feminized setting.”

Male aggression can be a good thing, as in protecting the weak — but it has been forced out of the culture of elementary schools and the education schools that train their personnel. Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza.

When the public predictably went nuts over her comments, Allen responded saying she wasn’t blaming the parents. With thinking people combing her words for countless errors in her facts and assertions, Allen sent out another major volley, writing:

I am, however, blaming our culture that denies, dismisses, and denigrates the masculine traits—including size, strength, male aggression and a male facility for strategic thinking–that until recently have been viewed as essential for building a society and protecting its weaker members.

For more information on just how stupid and weak Charlotte Allen thinks women are, read We Scream, We Swoon. How Dumb Can We Get, a 2008 Washington Post op ed piece.

High Profile Parents

Kim Kardashian on pregnancy with Kanye West’s baby: ‘It’s not as easy as people think’ NY Daily News

We’re assured that the birth won’t be televised. And I’m certain that the news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye will be parents has the KKK beyond bezerk.

Kardashian, 32, hit the 1 Oak party just a day after West, 35, dropped the baby bombshell during a performance in Atlantic City. The happy couple raced from New Jersey to Los Angeles early Monday and then high-tailed it to Vegas for Kardashian’s long-scheduled paid appearance.
