The Shining 00:00:05 + Blackstar.

Tis a Pity She Was a Horse

After watching Blackstar + 2001 you immediately asked yourself how Blackstar pairs with Melancholia, because you agree with me that Von Trier is the best visual storyteller of our time;  arrogant, honest, vulnerable, violent.

Pairing Bowie with this film is obvious to you.  Like Bowie, and me, you have seen this film many times.  You are pretty confident you have completely digested it.  But not 100%; Blackstar + Melancholia may reveal a new layer, or layers.  You explain this to your grandmother like a ten year old:

"The Logos is hyperdimensional; the Holy Spirit, Astrology, James Joyce, and Stanley Kubrick, all of these are hyperdimensional.

A more perfect Logos, one theorized by Philo Judaeus is described by Phil K Dick in VALIS, also described by Terence McKenna.  Something beheld.  An object of pure understanding.

The I Ching + The Tarot + The Hebrew Kabbalah
The Shining + 2001: A Space Odysey + The Wall
Vine + Bush + Cerbral Cortex 
Sound + Vision + Information 

These are all the collective labor of shamans and artists."

"What on Earth do you mean?"

"Satire can't do this.  We were wrong; Cathulu feeds on Satire, and all Sartre depends on lies, and lying.  Leyes are a product of visual perspectives, something Saturn falsely cauled subjectivity."

"Oh yes! I do see what you mean"

The Man Who Sold The White Castle: Finnegans Wakefest Burrito

Beyond Bowie Is Coming Soon


Start David Bowman's album Blackstar at the end of the intermission of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey.  Allow track one "Blackstar" to play one more time at the end.  The music has the exact playing time as the rest of the film.
