Like this from, A Book of Emblems:





“She recreated the mountains not as she had originally seen them but as she eventually chose to perceive them, not only a capacity to observe the world but a capacity to alter his or her observation of it---which, in the end, is the capacity to alter the world, itself." Tom Robbins

In celebration of Pioneer Day in Utah (Pie and Beer Day for me), a celebration day that commemorates the Mormons arriving in the Salt Lake Valley, this program discussed Utah myths, legends and folklore. The stories are Mormon and Utah centric so it may or may not be interesting for others who read on this forum.

The Miracle Of The Crickets And Other Utah Legends

There were several tales covered that I find particularly interesting. One idea that I hadn't heard bouncing around my Utah community is the story that Bigfoot is Cain, cursed to live and wander forever in a fallen state. Another idea that piqued my interest was the idea that some of the Mormon people went underground at some point in time and may someday re-emerge. The LDS Church has a vault built into granite mountain in one of our canyons here. I love to speculate about that place, what's in there, what's connected to it, etc. I know a guy who claims he worked there translating documents.

That same guy also claims to have a copy of the Spalding manuscript which may predate Joseph Smith's Book of Mormon and the story is that Sidney Rigdon and Joseph Smith took (stole, plaigerized) that manuscript and tranformed it into the text that became the Book of Mormon. When I asked to see it, he was really surprised that I knew what it was and quickly changed the subject.

Quote
"In 1832, Orson Hyde visited Conneaut, Ohio, and preached from the Book of Mormon. Nehemiah King, a resident of Conneaut, who knew Spalding when he lived there, felt that the Mormon text resembled the story written by Spalding years before. In 1833, Spalding's brother John and seven other residents of Conneaut signed affidavits stating that Spalding had written a manuscript, portions of which were identical to the Book of Mormon. Spalding's widow told a similar story, and stated that "the names of Nephi and Lehi are yet fresh in my memory, as being the principal heroes of his tale." These statements were published in E. D. Howe's 1834 book Mormonism Unvailed.

Tower of London welcomes baby ravens for the first time in 30 years
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

According to popular lore, the fates of both the Tower of London and the wider British kingdom are intrinsically linked with the presence of at least six ravens in the palatial, 1,000-year-old fortress. As a royal decree reportedly issued by 17th-century King Charles II warned, if the birds ever flee their London home, “the Tower itself will crumble to dust and a great harm will befall the kingdom.”

Huginn and Muninn, the newborn chicks’ parents, arrived at the Tower aviary toward the end of 2018 but were not expected to be settled in time for the 2019 mating season. Skaife, however, started to suspect the pair had successfully bred after spotting a huge nest that appeared suddenly overnight. On April 23, St. George’s Day, he saw the birds bringing food to the nest, and a few weeks later, he was finally able to approach and assess the scene for himself.

Huginn and Muninn were Odin's ravens, thought and memory. Are they saying the King/Queen of England fills the role of Odin? St. George killed the dragon. The new dragon or the new dragon slayer is being born in England?

Hey NRG. I was here on the last site. I made the Marvel Truths thread. You asked me the same question when I signed up. I don't have a great explanation. Orange is my favourite colour and it works well with blue, and it could mean sad or moldy. Thanks again for a great site and community!

I've been lurking about but didn't really have anything to say. You said the same thing about blue and orange before. May I ask what the personal significance is?

Crispin Glover's middle name is Hellion. Here's an interesting article, The Red Herring: Crispin Glover

Quote from the article, "the money Crispin makes from acting in mainstream movies goes straight to Hellion. "
