  1. What should we call the men amoung the Anunnaki? I think the best resort is to head towards laughter as they have long taught. Let us now look as it has come to pass within and througout their own strata and rank.

    The men amoung as the actual name may translate is but a small naked dwarf to common term which they themselves you to self referentiate.

    It started as a joke which sent the whole world laughing. They call themseleves the MEN-OV-NAKI. Originally a slightly funnny pun, now practically the truth. The men amoung the Anunnaki are called the Menovnaki. It gets funnier slowly over 1000’s of years.

    It’s like they say “eat your fibre”

  2. agreed that there seemed to be some very strong Vaudeville vibe going on in the 70’s. I know as those theatres went away during the great depression that what was left slowly dissolved with only a few theatre still providing remnants of that form of entertainment, but even with that fade, it seemed that here and there old acts would make brief appearances on variety shows and if they didn’t have any real connection they used whatever means they could to insinuate some connection. The word and idea Vaudeville carried with it nearly all positive connotations, it was the nuggets of real insider stuff and legend dropped by people like George Burns and Bob Hope, it was sprinkled down and lauded, it was a crowd pleaser if only for the idea.

    I’m sure there are other focus points, perhaps main street USA in the new Disney World, bands like New Vaudvillians, the very idea of Variety shows on TV.

  3. Thanks for the Twin Peaks spoiler alert. I’ve gotten my girlfriend Jessica into the show over the last week; I’m going to hopefully catch her up today with where I am and then I can start recording some more shows.
