'Aspartame and the Brain' - video

As undermining Neptune, planet of toxins and poisons, continues its journey through its own sign of murky, infectious Pisces, you've hopefully managed to jettison the killer chemical 'aspartame' from your diet before now. Or at least as best you can, since Americans never completely know what toxic contaminates are being laced into our food (with the legislative complicity of the US Congress):

"Food safety" and the "US Food and Drug Administration"? Seems that behind the door it's a shady way to administer health-undermining drugs to the American people...via food.

A note for those who speak astrologese: remember that US natal Ceres = US natal Pluto-Chiron midpoint @8Pisces+...a la July 4, 1776. Chilling.

Two Hours' Most Viewed Post of All Time: Thom Yorke!

Since Radiohead continues to retain its Number One position as my Favorite Band, I am pleased to report that as of today, May 18, 2013, my post concerning Thom Yorke's Sun-Moon personality blend (which includes a video of his tune The Clock) is the most-viewed post ever on Two Hours You'll Never Get Back--and it won't take nearly two hours for you to check it out!

The post is nearing 2,000 views which is pretty good for a seldom updated blog.

Now if only I knew Mr. Yorke's correct birth hour, I'd be even more pleased...

Max Igan video: 'Cultivating the Social Pathogen'

Now usually I embed Max Igan's excellent videos on my Political Astrology site Stars Over Washington yet here's one for you now: Cultivating the Social Pathogen which is apt with merge-lover Neptune traversing its own (easily infected) sign of Pisces:

1/20/13: that liberal boogieman!


oh that 'liberal boogieman'

plans to govern as he can

much like Reagan he'll reform

GOP decries the storm

liberalism won the day

young Paul Ryan now can say

he was there amidst the boos

for his party sure did lose.

2012 Eclipses and a 3,000 Year-Old Murder Mystery Solved at Last!

Love Gone Sour? A Throne Beckons

by Jude Cowell

It's been known for some time that the wife of Ramses III planned to have her husband assassinated so that her son could become pharoah in his stead. But was the plot successful? Turns out it was.

Egyptologists have removed bandages from the ancient neck of Ramses III to reveal 'twas a sharp knife did the deed.

Watch out, Washington, for even 3,000 year-old crimes must eventually come to light and posting this feels as if I'm cooperating here with the current Solar Eclipse (which occurred on November 13, 2012 @21 Scorpio 56) for both Solar and Lunar eclipses tend to uncover hidden secrets--even those with ancient and distinguished petigrees!

Scorpio: Sign of Secrets, Betrayals, and Criminal Acts

For a peek at the November 2012 Solar Eclipse horoscope set for Washington DC with some Political Astrology details to describe it, visit Stars Over Washington where you'll also find the horoscope of its 'bookend' Lunar Eclipse of November 28th as well.

Year 2012 is ending under the rays of a difficult YOD planetary pattern of crisis and turning points which involves an aspect between Saturn (restriction, loss) and Pluto (power and control--together they often bring cruelty, brutality, and harsh conditions as on 9/11/01)--and directing their energies toward Jupiter Rx in Gemini, sign of young people such as the students of the Sandy Hook elementary School who were innocent victims of the Saturn-Pluto duo of brutality.

Can good come from evil? Well, Washington now speaks of "doing something" legislatively about America's culture of violence and how whatever is done must be done quickly before the impetus runs out. This is a common feeling with a YOD influence: that one must take corrective action while the opportunity is offered.

As a parent, and now grandparent, I hope legislators will ward off the politically powerful NRA long enough to put into place more common-sense laws such as closing the gun show loophole for our children and women in particular need protection in this paternalistic, testosterone-driven society.

'Henri 3 Le Vet' (video) and Blogger blog redirects

At last this blog has been rescued from its recent redirect attack. For those who have a similar problem with a Blogger blog, try removing all widgets from your Layout such as Blogger's 'Recent Comments' or 'Recent Posts'. Clear your browser cache in between. This did it for 2 Hours anyway.

My thanks to skyewriter for giving me a heads-up on a handy fix-it page with info that Blogger won't tell us.

And now, bravely fighting back a paralyzing disdain for all blogosphere endeavors, I hereby embed the 3rd video from the irrascibly brilliant Henri series of feline existentionalism sagas, Henri 3 Le Vet. Enjoy. But stay very very cool. Wearing black may help...beret optional:

Watch Henri Paw de deux.

A 5-Minute Tour of Western Crete mid-May 2012 (video)

Are you familiar with the beauty and charm of the ancient isle of Western Crete? Or perhaps you're an armchair traveler like myself? Well, check out this 5-minute video that some of my more adventurous family members (one with a Mercury = travel/Jupiter = foreign lands conjunction in Aquarius) recorded in mid-May 2012 as they took in the sights...complete with some very appropriate music!

You may also wish to read of the History of Minoan Crete or of King Minos himself.

Why, even the author of The Scarlet Letter and other classics of American literature, Nathaniel Hawthorne, thought to write of Theseus and the (beastly) Minotaur!

~:~

Nathaniel Hawthorne: July 4, 1804 Salem, Massachusetts, died May 19, 1864. Hawthorne was born with Sun in creative Moon-ruled Cancer and Moon in quick-witted Gemini, sign of the writer; this is the 'eternal student' combo of energies which gave him excellent teaching abilities. His Water-Air (ethereal, misty) Sun Can-Moon Gem personality blend is shared natally by Henry David Thoreau, Clifford Odets, Lord Mountbatten, Cheryl Ladd, John D.Rockefeller, and Dianne Feinstein. (I know!)

Henri 2, Paw de Deux - brilliant! (video)

If you've ever suspected your cat of harboring existentialist views within, the following video may confirm it...or not...who cares, right? Hey, doesn't Henri rhyme with ennui?

A peek at Jude's Sketchbook Project 2012!


Since late 2011, I've been perpetrating new drawings for my Sketchbook Project 2012 Limited Edition as sponsored by the Art House Co-op whenever I find time.

Here you see an initial online showing of a fraction of one of the drawings, working title, Fractured Girl. She seems to have a bit of a 'seer' attitude, doncha think? Well, many of my drawings do unless they're of a more realistic botanical nature.

So if one day you should visit the Brooklyn Art Library you may look up my offering and see the entire shebang as you wish--an old-fashioned 'hard copy', that is!


Here are some particulars:

Brooklyn Art Library
103A N. 3rd St
Brooklyn, NY 11249


Also check out The Sketchbook Project online for I know you're about to get your Sketchbook in the mail by April 30, 2012 if you're part of the Limited Edition group. Having just completed documenting all the images, I shall mail mine this week if all goes as planned.

Fun Note: Sketchbook Project's Art Book Series is scheduled to be published in Fall 2012!

Hope for the hopeless? (video)

At last I thought to return to YouTube to search for Brett Dennen's performance on David Letterman from a while back. You see, when the music (and the beat) combine with apples-of-gold-in-pictures-of-silver lyrics that actually say something on behalf of human kind, the song often becomes a perennial favorite of mine.

Here, Heaven is performed live on Letterman and if you're unfamiliar with the song's message, perhaps you'll give a listen!




This song debuted pre-Occupy days, of course, but its message seems quite applicable to 99%/1% issues to this particular blogger whose nature is to operate within a Common Good persuasion.

Plus, here's another version of Heaven which I posted about 3 years ago including an interview with Brett Dennen if you're curious.

Now updated: Stars Over Washington. Politics. Tiresome. Agreed. But we look away from the varmints at our and our children's peril. Plus, through the lens of Astrology we may spy many squirmy little things wiggling behind the door...

Einstein (History Channel video) plus Einstein's Brain

Now I certainly hope it's permissible to embed this video here of an excellent History Channel presentation about a childhood favorite of mine...Einstein. Its embed code was available for sharing so you'd think it would be okay, right?





Actually, there are at least two previous posts I published concerning the Professor--one on an NPR feature about the study of Einstein's brain and this one about Einstein's essay on
Socialism which may qualify as a must-read for many of us (ex: me!) since the word 'socialism' has been made to serve propagandistic aims as a great boogie man in what passes for political discourse in 2012.
