The Fantastic Four And The Invisible Woman

The Fantastic Four And The Invisible Woman   Scientists have postulated for some time that viruses travelling through space are responsible for human life originating on Earth: `… if panspermia does occur, then it should be possible to track the spread of life through the stars like we might track the progress of a virus.`1 That suggests life on Earth has had a virus transmitted to it at some point in the past, and so signs of that transmission should be detectable. The rise of the virus...

Simple Rules

Simple Rules   A peculiar characteristic of English society is transvestism, while the perception that `TV` or transvestism has a connection with television isn`t. The television comedy series, It Ain`t Half Hot Mum (1974-81), which centered around a concert party of the British army during the period of India`s gaining independence from colonial rule in 1947, featured actor Melvyn Hayes as Bombardier `Gloria` Beaumont, who was perceived by all as a `TV`, that is, a transvestite, although...

Start Rex

Start Rex   Tyrannosaurus Rex, or `Thunder Lizard`, was a dinosaur biped, with two arms and two legs, and which probably ate meat and preyed on other plant eating saurians. The dinosaurs were thought to have became extinct after the appearance of mammals during the Mesozoic period (248 m.a.) of Earth`s prehistory. As mammalian (220 m.a.) evolution gathered impetus, it was analogous to that of a younger generation unrespecting of the crocodile smiles of older men, and is a motif that...

Kill The Yellow Man

Kill The Yellow Man   Singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen was known as `The Boss` after his fabled emergence as a rock `n` roll musician, with the release of his first album, Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. (1973), which contained the paradoxically titled track, `Blinded By The Light`: `Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun. Oh, but Mama, that's where the fun is. I was blinded.`1 Looking into the sun does blind, but looking doesn`t, although men don`t want...

The Guts Of Starship Troopers

The Guts Of Starship Troopers   Science fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein (1907-88), wrote his juvenile novel for boys, Starship Troopers (1959), about spiders that lived on a planet far away from Earth`s solar system amongst the stars. The novel narrates how Juan Rico, a citizen of Argentina`s Buenos Aires, becomes a `starship trooper` fighting the spiders and traces his development from being a member of a platoon, `Rasczak`s Roughnecks`, to being the leader of the same troop,...

In Through The Out Door With Led Zeppelin

In Through The Out Door With Led Zeppelin   The four members of the rock group, Led Zeppelin, that is, drummer John Bonham, bassist John Paul Jones, guitarist Jimmy Page and vocalist Robert Plant, made music that was mythic ; for example, `Achilles Last Stand` from the group`s seventh studio album, Presence (1976), was about the Greek siege of the city of Troy, `It was an April morning when they told us we should go. As I turned to you, you smiled at me. How could we say no?`1...

Madonna`s Not A Whore In The Mirror

Madonna`s Not A Whore In The Mirror   Christianity is able to understand Islam although Moslems resist explanation, because their socio-economic history is at least as complex as the Grail legend, which is the belief that king Arthur and the knights of the round table represent a tradition that began when Joseph of Arimathea accepted the bowl Jesus ate and drank from at the `Last Supper` when he was the human host betrayed by his disciple, Judas, as a `dissident` to the Empire of...

Humans Against The Reptilian Arachnids

Humans Against The Reptilian Arachnids   The Gulf wars of 1990-1 to expel the Iraqi invaders from Kuwait, and the March 2003 invasion of Iraq to subdue Iraq`s dictator, Saddam Hussein, because of his continued warring upon Iraq`s Kurds, was likened to the `Bug War` of science fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein (1907-88), in his juvenile novel Starship Troopers (1959), which was made into the post Gulf war (1990-1) to liberate Kuwait film, Starship Troopers (1997), where arachnoid,...

Babylon 5, Seven Of Nine

Babylon 5, Seven Of NIne   Literary classification owes something to Northrop Frye`s theory of types in Anatomy Of Criticism (1957), where `low comedy` is `slapstick`, or `custard pie in the face` humor, which is deemed a form appreciated by a lower level of conscious participation in the drama medium, while `high`, or `mimetic comedy`, is defined in modern literary circles as `camp`, because the comedic content resides in what is perceivable by the `adult`, rather than the `child`;...
