Abbraccio Cosmico, the Queen, the Pope, and Bill Clinton

Abbraccio Cosmico, the Queen, the Pope, and Bill Clinton

Clyde Lewis is discussing the Tetrad tonight on Ground Zero, and this year there are 4 Blood Moons. The Grand Cardinal Crossing includes the four areas of the zodiac where the Tetrad will take place: Capricorn, Libra, Cancer, Aries. And the Queen was photographed in front of the painting “Abbraccio Cosmico” (Cosmic Embrace) with Pope Francis, a painting that depicts two humanoid beings embracing while being surrounded by 4 zodiac symbols: Capricorn, Libra, Aries, and Cancer. Is that a coincidence? Do they know something?

This leads to speculation: What will happen when the Blood Moon rises?

RIP Harold Ramis. You’ll Always be My Egon Spengler

RIP Harold Ramis.  You'll Always be My Egon Spengler

We lost one of the comedy greats today. Harold Ramis, who starred in and wrote some of the most memorable comedies of my generation, died today at the age of 69. I’ll always think of him as Egon Spengler in “Ghostbusters.” I was always the girl who loved Egon. I was jealous of Janine in so many ways. I never, ever forgot that the atomic weight of cobalt was 58.9. Every time that question came up in chemistry, I’d smile and thank Harold Ramis for the epic line. I remember watching “Stripes” with my grandfather when I was little. I had no idea how inappropriate it was for a ten year old until I was older, but even as a child it made me laugh.

If you’re not familiar with Ramis’ work, here are just a few titles: “Ghostbusters” “Stripes” “National Lampoon’s Animal House” “Analyze This” “Analyze That” That’s a short list, by the way.

RIP, Harold Ramis, and thank you for all of the laughs!
