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`;...

Jesus` PCs

Jesus` PCs   Although the invention of the television, which was credited to Scot, John Logie Baird, in 1926, results from Hollywood Babylon`s `Hays code` of 1930 forbidding women to raise their `foot` from the floor in bedroom scenes on `moral grounds`, that is, `TV` arose as a transvestite medium in which men and women wore each others` clothes without possibility of discovery, because women`s raising of their `foot` in bedroom scenes was a euphemism for the banning of human sex...

Dragon Afoot

Dragon Afoot   Jesus was asked to carry his own crucifix, which was a cross of wood that the Roman Empire in Palestine required him to take to the hill of Calvary outside Jerusalem, where he was nailed upon it as a Jewish `dissident` and left there until he died. A difficult feat and a preliminary torture for the Jewish Messiah to drag on each foot towards his own murder. Jesus had Resurrection and Ascension to heaven as the child of his mother, the Virgin Mary, who was born...

Stare Funny Symbolist

Stare Funny Symbolist    Actress Stephanie Zimbalist starred in feature films for Hollywood Babylon`s `big screen`, and the `small screen` of TV, for the mass media `edutainment` industry of the 20th century, and although the choice of name for a movie star is thought to be a matter of some importance, Stephanie Zimbalist`s choice of name, that is, `Stare Funny Symbolist`, is paradigmatic for women in the entertainment business; for example,  actress Hilary Swank`s name...

Two Faced Adam And Five Faced Eve

Two Faced Adam And Five Faced Eve   Pornography is an interesting `edutainment` medium to define. For instance, `adult entertainment` is a typical description, although `adult education` is a label applied by the supposedly more enlightened. The term `edutainment` is useful as it affords the possibility of perceiving the mass media communications` industry`s aspects of `adult education` and `adult entertainment` holistically, whereas education and entertainment are separated by the...

Hungary`s cross

Hungary`s Cross   In Christian iconography the serpent on the cross is a familiar symbol, because the angel, Satan, was transformed into a serpent, according to the Bible, by God for rejecting God`s plan that the human host be greater than the angelic. God told Eve her `seed` would have `enmity` with the serpent`s after Satan had given her the `fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil`, that is, death, saying `You will be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) God had told Eve and the first man,...
