Drimble Wedge & The Vegetation!

No time for blogging today! Germaine Gregarious and I are preparing for our visit with this season's most popular round-the-clock television news program, The Pope! (The proper costume is very important, of course - We're looking for a sugar-encrusted halo that is sweet-tooth enough to match Ms. Greagarious' winsome personality!) In the meantime you can watch this swell video of the musical stylings of Drimble Wedge & The Vegetation [ 2 ] from the 1967 film "Bedazzled". Also the famous post-box scene that's explains God's place in the universe. (Jeepers! I'm sort of jealous - as the supreme religious leader of Ape City, I never got to wear a great big pointy hat!)

Lucifer literally means the bringer of light. (wisdom)

Can't be having any of that in our dogma now can we?

Übermilf: Yay! Please do! I love this movie. I am going to steal your octopus movie!

Jess Wundrun: It is even stranger than that. I came across this a few years ago. "Lucifer, the bringer of the light" means the Morning Star. The Morning Star and the Evening Star are both the planet Venus and represent the goddess Aphrodite or Venus or Ishtar or Astarte. The planet Venus, when represented as the Morning Star has been represented as the symbol of the crescent and star of this symbol [ 2 ]. The star in the crescent is supposed to represent the goddess Ishtar or Astarte. (Not to be conused with this movie).

That distinction is meaningless, as is this one: Venus means love, love means the Morning Star, the Morning Star means Lucifer the bringer of the light, and Lucifer is evil incarnate in the Christian tradition - so love means evil. This just means that if you dig into the symbolism of anything deep enough, it just turns into a big messy pile of muddy thinking.
