New Killer Star Discussion, News/Views... new  

http://www.biblical-art.com/newtesta/ntsparts/revelation/seven seals/four horsemen.htm

What might the Tower card have originally meant? It is surely connected in some way with the Devil card, always following it immediately in sequence, and usually showing fiery imagery and sometimes bearing a suggestive name. Paradoxically, however, the fire seems more celestial than infernal; it usually arcs down from heaven. And the card following the Tower is the Star, the first of the celestial cards of the tarot.

See a great white scar
Over Battery Park
Then a flare glides over

But I won't look at that scar

Oh, my nuclear baby
Oh, my idiot trance
All my idiot questions
Let's face the music and dance

Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better
Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better than you

All the corners of the buildings
Who but we remember these
The sidewalks and trees
I'm thinking now

I got a better way
I discovered a star
I got a better way
Ready set go
I got a better way
A new killer star
I got a better way
Ready set go
I got a better way
The stars in your eyes
I got a better way
Ready set go
I got a better way
I discovered a star
I got a better way
Ready set go

All my life in a comic
Like the way they did the bible
With the bubbles and action
The little details in color


First a horseback bomber

http://www.biblical-art.com/newtesta/ntsparts/revelation/seven seals/four horsemen.htm


Just a small thin chance
Like seeing Jesus on Dateline
Let's face the music and dance

I discovered a star
Like the stars in your eyes

Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better
Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better than you

All the corners of the buildings
Who but we remember these?
The sidewalks and trees
I'm thinking now

I got a better way
I discovered a star
I got a better way
Ready set go
I got a better way
A new killer star
I got a better way
Ready set go
I got a better way
The stars in your eyes
I got a better way
Ready set go
I got a better way
I discovered a star
I got a better way
Ready set go

Ottomans being Turks were using a crescent bearing flag. When Saleem I resumed power as the caliph, the Ottoman flag was red with a green circle and three yellow crescents. Ottomans for the first time separate the religious flag and the national flag. The national flag was red with crescent facing right, while the religious flag green with crescent facing right.

Later, a five-cornered star was added to symbolize the five pillars of Islam.

The star was added by Sultan Selim III in 1793 (its five points being established in 1844)."

Why are you posting this crap? What does a flag have to do with the song? If there's a connection you see or hypothesize about, please let us know. Otherwise, posting lyrics, URL's, and historical trivia is a waste of space and does not belong here.

XVI. The Tower
XVII. The Star


The Symbolism of the Tower Card

The Tower represents a sudden, drastic change. This change can be incredibly freeing


The Symbolism of the Star Card

The Star is the light of hope. Shining in the night, sending light into darkness, the stars provide direction to

sailors
and are a field on which to dream.

In reply to:

You obviously don't because I have never claimed to be a director. I prefer to work in the area of cinematography, but am currently working in television production.

And it's a shame my "sparkling wit" has elluded you. I guess I have failed my lifelong goal of entertaining and impressing you. Time to get out the razors and pour a warm bath.

Re: New Killer Star Discussion, News/Views... new [re: Beltene]  

yes, the last post did include some insight. It was more than just copying facts to the board. That was my complaint.

I will consider this matter resolved.
