Calendrical Traditions

What people are saying about Candy Minx "Is she going to count every bloody star?" Richard Duckworth "I went in and cleaned up the typos, grammar and spelling mistakes" Marty Priola "If she's right about these dates, Moss was hunting in closed season." Wallis R. Sanborn "Don't fuck with the Illuminatti" Peter Joseph Thank you for watching. This is a visual component of a presentation made at The Southwest Popular American Culture Conference Feb 2019 in Alb. New Mexico. It compliments written and 3D constructions. Arguing that celestial motifs remind the audience we are watching an astral myth where characters personify nature or gods within ritualized spaces. Candy Minx is documenting the mnemonic potential in Cormac McCarthys work, the history of time-factoring in artifacts and art as part of distributed cognition history and the calendrical structures in Blood Meridian. You can read more of her ongoing explorations at her artist site here: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2765203 or listen to her podcast THE AGENCY she co-hosts with Eugene Knapik.

Eugene and I disagree on quite a few things this episode. Makes life much more interesting though doesn't it? It's a special part of life to be able to have a debate and still want to go out for coffee together. I hope you check out our recent episode on THE AGENCY.

Supportive Content To A Presentation

You can watch a video I made for a conference last year. I made it at the suggestion of our panel leader to demonstrate some of the ideas I was presenting in a  paper. You will see a lot of chopped images from two movies written by Cormac McCarthy. Plus some other images including an image of an Egyptian goddess, clocks, Dawn dish soap and Hitachi Tv and "magic squares or Sator Squares. The Dawn dish soap adds another motif of the sun, or star to the movie No Country For Old Men. Hitachi means "rising sun." Product history interests me such as Texaco is a star, Dawn dish soap, Heineken beer has a star logo. Heineken means "home rule" so it is locational. I account for locations, navigational or astronomical references in both No Country For Old Men and The Counselor. A Sator Square or "magic square is an artifact that can be read backwards forwards or diagonally. These artifacts were found in Pompeii ruins but a magic square goes way back t the I Ching at least.

Here is my artist site where I have this video posted...HERE

Mother, Bong Joon-ho

We have gone crazy for Bong Joon-ho. We made a bonus episode talking about his 2010 movie that riffs on film noir, Pyscho, inept law enforcement and of course, blames the mother.

Here is the opening scene from MOTHER we mention as so strange...
