Aboriginal Culture - Aboriginal Religion and Ceremony

Aboriginal religion, like many other religions, is characterised by having a god or gods who created people and the surrounding environment during a particular creation period at the beginning of time. Aboriginal people are very religious and spiritual, but rather than praying to a single god they cannot see, each group generally believes in a number of different deities, whose image is often depicted in some tangible, recognisable form. This form may be that of a particular landscape feature, an image in a rock art shelter, or in a plant or animal form. Wandjina bring the Wet Season rains to the people of the Kimberley.

H.R. Giger, 1940-2014: the Xenomorph's father

Giger "passed away" at age 74. Let's respect the man's vision and avoid euphemisms. Say that he died and that his remains will merge with infinity. Giger was a painter, sculptor, graphic artist and production designer. He was best known for designing the titular creature of the "Alien" films, a "xenomorph" that began life as a leathery egg which then disgorged a "facehugger" that attached itself to, well, a face, and then inserted a tube into the victim's mouth which laid another egg in the host's stomach that grew into creature that looked like an eyeless snake with serrated teeth which finally burst from the victim's body like a huge maggot eating through dead flesh (sorry if you're reading this as you eat, but if you're eating, why read an appreciation of H.R.

No tengo palabras para él… y a la vez tengo tantas… Hay tanto sobre qué hablar en este juego… Si me he resistido a hacer una entrada hasta hoy es porque hace falta una cantidad ingente de tiempo para realizarla y otra tanta para leerla y macerarla. Soy consciente de que va a salir uno de los artículos más largos, densos y complejos en lo que se lleva de blog. Pero alguna vez tenía que tocar. No podía dejar de lado este juego (¿o tal vez no lo sea?) Thomas Mann. Thomas Mann (Lübeck, Imperio alemán, 6 de junio de 1875 – Zúrich, Suiza, 12 de agosto de 1955) fue un escritor alemán nacionalizado estadounidense. Considerado uno de los escritores europeos más importantes de su generación, Mann es recordado por el profundo análisis crítico que desarrolló en torno al alma europea y alemana en la primera mitad del siglo XX. Para ello tomó como referencias principales a la Biblia y las ideas de Goethe, Freud, Nietzsche y Schopenhauer. A pesar de que su obra más conocida sea la novela La montaña mágica, Thomas Mann recibió el Premio Nobel de literatura en 1929 «principalmente por su gran novela, Los Buddenbrook, que ha merecido un reconocimiento cada vez más firme como una de las obras clásicas de la literatura contemporánea».[1]
