LOST Meets The Exorcist

07/25/2012

I’m watching LOST again, just because I want to sort things out, and I think I got everything straight, and of course all those ostensibly unanswered questions have been answered, but what’s this I noticed? And this just happens to be on YouTube. (Spoilers?)

At 0:56 it sounds like a dubbed voice, not Naveen Andrews’ (Sayid’s) voice. It sounds a lot like the voice of the demon from The Exorcist. “Do you want to know who I am?” the voice asks. Very similar in theme and I just bet the sound people played with it a bit there to make it sound like that.

Mind you, Sayid has been through a lot, and will continue down a dark path, one that is intertwined with the hapless demonesque Linus, only to be overshadowed by a larger demon.

Maybe I’m just too into it at this late hour, but that sounded like the Exorcist demon to me.

Darth Vader Gargoyle at Washington National Cathedral

06/18/2010

Sometimes reading a Dan Brown novel yields some pretty interesting facts. Case in point: a key part of the engaging – albiet poorly written- story involves “Luke’s Dark Father.”

At first I was like No Way. And then I was like Way. There actually is a sculpture of Darth Vader included in the construction of this neo-cathedral.

In the 1980s, while the west towers were under construction, Washington National Cathedral held a decorative sculpture competition for children. Word of the competition was spread nationwide through National Geographic World Magazine. The third-place winner was Christopher Rader, with his drawing of that fearful villain, Darth Vader. The fierce head was sculpted by Jay Hall Carpenter, carved by Patrick J. Plunkett, and placed high upon the northwest tower of the Cathedral.

He’s kind of difficult to spot, but there are hints at the link. Also claimed to be in the structure are stones from Mount Sinai and a moon rock.

The Kraken. Releese It.

In anticipation of the upcoming blockbuster, Clash of the Titans, Urlesque posted some silly reproductions of the incomparable and iconic line: Release the Kraken! After opening up the readers to make interpretations of their own, they got a bunch of submissions. I love this one by Zeblue. If you have no idea what this is, well…

It’s only a matter of time before Epic Beard Man gets a nod. See more at Urlesque.

Johnny Depp worked with Brando, I sometimes forget.  But this lil story is awesome.
