Krank


-I've been sick the past couple of days. I reconnected with 1991 in this time by beginning to reread The Sandman. I can't believe how much more I'm able to get out it now--with a fairly extensive background in mythology & the story. I was never a fanboy. I read Silver Surfer and The Sandman. That's it, but I now have a handle on classic comic history and can see how Gaiman was working with existing structures and characters. Take John Constantine for example.

I only know him from the film staring Keanu.
Anyway. I have a few themes right now that are asking to be laid out.
Here they are:

The Constant




An American Identity



The Brides of Satan


?

The Wasteland
Self Constructed Wonderlands of Sadness
Where The Sad Things Are Wild. . .



The Monsters Are Real






What Are You Going To Do?

  2. The reader, one of the most sad and interesting movies of all times. I cried watching this movie, your feelings are exposed in it.

Abe's Axe is a symbol. Like the firey wand of Hermes, it is the conduit for bringing into action manifestations from the creative imagination. He is not killing vampires so much as freeing living dead men. The great emancipator would like to bring you into the 4th dimension of consciousness. He is going to have to kill you to do this, though. Or, actually, just annihilate your ego to transport you. In this instance, his axe is the craft. A craft is both a transport and a skill. The magician's wand is both. A pen can be mightier than the sword. What's your craft? Use your symbol well. . .
