Pursuing natural health & thinking beyond the superficial. Deconstructing Culture.

I don’t usually comment on actors or singers outside of review posts and many of the celebs I’ve admired for one thing or another have plenty in their lives I’ve completely disapproved of which outweigh anything I liked about them. However this is a goodbye to a ‘champion’ prizefighter (and fellow vegan, strong female, yoga practising, late December Capricorn) the ‘ninth wonder of the world’ who ‘unfortunately’ seemed to have played a representative of things she may not have been aware of.

Chyna Joanie Laurer

In her apartment in the County of Angels, Cali-fornia, Joan Laurer aka Chyna (athlete, stuntwoman, actress, English teacher) is said to have been found dead in her bed yesterday 20th April, aged 45, cause unknown (though many people conveniently know about her medication.)

This was her last video:

Sunday 17th April – ‘Wake Up!’

Fish Head song

The Fish Head song (strange to be sung at mealtime by a vegan) – it was on the album Voobaha by Barnes & Barnes (Voobaha being a word in a language they made called Luman-ian). Fish Heads was a favoured song on the Dr Demento show known for comedy, novelty, strange songs.

Creatures that are caught commonly caught by a baited hook or net the song highlights fish that are alive in the morning, dead in the soup in the evening, they can’t answer you/talk (Chyna was found after not answering phone calls like in the video), they can’t do what normal people do.

I always disliked her golddigging ex Paul Levesque (Triple H/WWE ‘superstar’) who dropped her when he had the opportunity to have the boss’ daughter (and as part of the ‘storyline’ based on real life, along with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin mocked Amy Dumas aka ‘Lita’ for cheating on Matt Hardy. Acting merging with reality in a fighting soap opera – Paul as aforementioned being a career golddigger and Steve Austin a wife beater both leading thousands of people into ‘slut’ shaming every week on and off screen for an affair with Adam Copeland ‘Edge’ who was married at the time; his stage character and image benefited whilst Amy’s ended. Lots of hypocrisy there, including Matt getting sacked for being cheated on and talking about it.)

I didn’t like how Chyna was placed against character Sydney Fox (Daughter figure) in Relic Hunter as wannabe Amazon queen/dark mother figure (the Amazon in the story defeated by the lauded Hera-kleos.)

Nor did I like how Red headed ‘Lita’ was placed in the breeding cult against Max in Dark Angel (also Amy’s neck was broken in the filming) before the ‘coming of the comet’ (which was later demeaned in the books) and where the ‘Father’ genetic splicer and dicer Sandeman (remember the old version of the sandman, he’s not a nice and quaint dreammaker) was made out to be a hero, kind and good and his first two children are sons, part dog (Sirius) – think Enki vs Enlil i.e. Manticore vs the Breeding Cult – called Joshua and Isaac (additionally similar to Vincent from the Beauty and Beast series starring Linda Hamilton, James Cameron’s ex-wife and dark mother figure in the Terminator series). Ma-x, Ma-trix, triple mother, Max being the symbolic Daughter in connection with the ‘dark mother’ not a virgin birth but an alternate one and still via a female carrier. She is also the rider = warrior, the horse[her bike] being the tree of knowledge & life with her pure DNA (no ‘junk DNA’) making her the ‘saviour’, the mount of the goddess. A side theme being Max and Logan K/Cale (Michael Weatherly was also used by Aaron Spelling in CharmedFantasy Island was also interesting – in an episode where he’s part of the dark charmed triad, going against his role though to something related i.e. the church, helped by dark mother figure Prudence and they go horseriding. Note – after she dies Piper and Phoebe’s lives go to hell in a hand basket.) Max is the only ‘transgenic’ whose mother fought for her and didn’t want to give her up. James Cameron has always been focused on the Dark Mother, though he twisted the theme big time in Avatar and continued the use of a wheelchair bound main character who plays both sides and gets his legs back – Logan was very wealthy and his family used in the control/surveillance of society but used his funds to help – and who ends up being the savior on Pan-Dora (meaning ‘all/completion’ of everything the ‘Dor’ signifies), mate of the spiritual warrior leader for the so-called Mother people who were portrayed as symbolic indigenous Earth peoples but weren’t, mega twisting of the narrative in that one.

Today the celebrity ‘Prince’ was found dead. I don’t know enough about him to comment further but names and titles are important.

I’m reminded of ‘the queen of pop’ Madonna’s antics in the first part of her ‘Sticky & Sweet’ tour using the song ‘Hung Up’ and the inclusion of music from dead guitarist Darrell ‘Abbot’ former member of the group DamagePlan, ‘the king of pop’ Michael Jackson’s death when his ‘This is it!’ tour was supposed to start and the second part of her tour with ‘tribute’ to the dead king via his song ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Something‘.

I don’t like hangers on, wannabe characters, those who live vicariously, those who jump on a bandwagon, those who sacrifice, the master chess players. When people talk about ‘multiple selves’ and fill out time and space with every possibility that could of happened/is happening to one person, all existing as extensions of the self simultaneously (just as egotistical as thinking the solar system revolved around the Earth) it’s morelike humanity includes many copies replaying and continuing a battle royale until the appropriate potentials/incarnations manage to… I don’t dispute that creatures are split between realities and illusions, our brains, nervous system and senses allow that, but I also don’t think that space is likely to be filled with just us. ‘Higher selves’? You want to be a lower ‘punishment’ vessel whilst a ‘higher’ you is better off? Your ‘luck’, ‘destiny’, energy split between versions of you and you got the short straw? Whatever people are listening to and thinking its themselves and/or those they ‘know’ might want to contemplate the malleable nature of the physics theories they’re working with (and perhaps worry about the studies going on to trace and control the intrinsic memory of the universe, and trying to grow embryos in space). This world looks and feels very different for the other animals who have different parameters on the senses we share plus different senses to ours, what we experience isn’t the only face, it and we shapeshift depending on the being or even machine we’re interfacing with. Terry Pratchett once said to me “all is not as it seems” (no I don’t claim to have known him personally but I find that phrase highlighted in his works and poignant here).

Be careful what you wish for. History, information, messages are conveyed and carried through our stories; official, non-fiction and fiction. Overlapping astronomical/seasonal calendars with ruler-regime based ones hasn’t helped us and knowledge our elders included is steeped in ‘Chinese whispers’ over time becoming myths, superstition, songs/chants/spells/frequency, poems, nursery rhymes, artwork, architecture, customs, religion and ultimately symbolism – our human brains remember signs and symbols well and with repetition/ritual/ceremony are ingrained – in all these things we find the same stories, the same characters, we can’t all be those. No amount of fame, currency, status, title, power, energy from fans and enemies, no kind of ‘compensation’ is worth it. You don’t want to have what it takes (or try to emulate it as powerful/influential/famous people and wannabes do and I have limited sympathy for those who pretend to be/take from living archtypes), because being that strong means having to be that strong. It’s not for those who want any kind of happiness for themselves.
