The Art of Butchering Pop Culture

Artist turns classic love songs into vintage horror novel cover art
I came across an artist who goes under the name Butcher Billy from the above link where it was written -
"Think of the best love and heartbreak songs from the 80’s until now, but now imagine them as 70’s and 80’s era Stephen King novel covers and you’ve got the work of graphic artist The Butcher Billy, who’s shared these covers on his Instagram."
I threw my wedding ring into those waters in the above poster when I divorced
The thing is it was the image of the book referring to Lionel Richie's song 'Hello' painted on a novel cover artwork of  The Butcher Billy's in Google images, while I was looking for images for a post I was writing about the new 'IT' movie that was about to come out at the time that drew my attention to the website that featured more of Butcher Billy's book covers.
But it was also announced that Lionel would be headlining 'Bluesfest' on the Easter Monday in 2018.
Plus 'Twin Peaks' had just also finished it's series run on TV when I stumbled on that image.

The Twin Peaks of Nightmares and Dreams?

I wrote a few posts back when I was writing about Rose McGowan's current media storm and some films that she starred in -
2017: The Name of the Rose, the Black Hole Sun and the Place of the Lion?
that I couldn't help thinking of the little synchromstic film a couple of my synch-head buddies put together and even showed it to
Rose McGowan not long after they made it.
This is it in the You Tube below and when I watch it again in 2017 and look at the themes and actors
(some who passed away unexpectedly this year also) my jaw hits the floor.

A young person in the film industry who viewed that post and video said to me what would these guys know about Hollywood film-making and actor's lives anyway?
Which brought a smile to my face.
So I thought I better write this post to explain to others wondering the same question when watching that video, which was made quite a while ago, that the guy narrating the film is Andras Jones, who played one of the twins in the movie
'Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master'.
Andras Jones
And ironically enough, while on the subject of twins, Andras even starred in a film in which the lady with the eye-patch on that 'Twin Peaks' magazine cover up near the top of the post was in.
And Andras was into pizzas long before anyone ever heard of "Pizzagate" I might add:-)
The other guy involved in the film that Andras narrated about Rose McGowan also made a synch film on Andras' movie roles, too.
See the You Tubes above and below if you don't know much about Andras and would like to know more.
Striking Balance With Andras Jones
So there you go and now you know who Andras Jones is, if you didn't before.
I hope you found this post more food for thought when it comes to synchromystisism, movies and actor's careers...and the type of weirdos I hang with on the internet;-)

Dark Nut of the Soul?

Rose (Rise?) Arianna McGowan in 'Planet Terror'
Nuit the Sky Goddess
Nut (Goddess)
"In Egyptian mythology, Nuit or Nut was the sky goddess.
She is the daughter of Shu and Tefnut and was one of the Ennead.
The sun god Re entered her mouth after the sun set in the evening and was reborn from her vulva the next morning.
She also swallowed and rebirthed the stars.
She was a goddess of death, and her image is on the inside of most sarcophagi.
The pharaoh entered her body after death and was later resurrected."
Rose as Miss Kitty/Bast from 'Monkeybone'
"In art, Nuit is depicted as a woman wearing no clothes, covered with stars and supported by Shu; opposite her (the sky), is her husband, Geb (the Earth).
With Geb, she was the mother of Osiris, Horus, Isis, Set, and Nephthys.
During the day, Nut and Geb are separated, but each evening Nut comes down to meet Geb and this causes darkness.
If storms came during the day, it was believed that Nut had some how slipped closer to the Earth. Nut is the barrier separating the forces of chaos from the ordered cosmos in this world.
Her fingers and toes were believed to touch the four cardinal points or directions."
