The above image is of Jimmy Savile OBE from 1977.
In my post, Holmes is where the heart is, I noted the coincidence between (alleged) James "Joker" Holmes' Aurora - Batman Dark Knight Rises - massacre and the abseiling of the Olympic torch into the Tower of London by Royal Marine, Martin Williams, where it was handed to Dame Kelly Holmes DBE MBE. Lord Coe, chairman of the games, noted that the Tower was a fitting point for the torch to enter London because "it is where the power and the significance of the Monarch resides"
Royal Marines carried Savile's golden coffin, which was buried at a 45 degree angle and encased in concrete. One wonders, in light of the whiff of necrophilia, if he was covering his arse, so to speak. (Digging Jimmy Savile).
Aerial scenes for Dark Knight Rises were filmed in the mountains of Scotland, the plane concerned flying out from Inverness airport. (BBC News)
Savile had a cottage at Glencoe in the Scottish mountains, specifically in the shadow of the Three Sisters. According to today's Sunday Mail, the previous owner of the property, top mountaineer, Hamish MacInnes, claims he was "hoodwinked" by the disgraced celebrity. MacInnes' claims to fame are that he invented the MacInnes stretcher and the first metal ice axe. MacInnes appears to take some solace in his hoodwinking by referencing Prince Charles as another victim. Some are saying that due to the "mountaineering history" of the cottage, it should not be demolished.
According to The Masonic Lodge of Education, hoodwinking is not specifically a "masonic" term, however it applies to a "type of blindfold used in Masonic rituals of initiation". Furthermore, Albert Mackey, "scholar and historian" notes: "But it is more than certain that there is in the hoodwink a representation of the mystical darkness which always proceeded the rites of the ancient initiations". Overall though, it appears to represent the "removal of darkness to let in the light".
Top occultist and freeemason, Aleister "The Beast" Crowley, purchased Boleskin House at Loch Ness in order to carry out his magical (sic) experiments. Crowley was also a keen mountaineer. His climbing partner was a chap called Oscar Eckenstein and between them they "did much to develop and promote the crampon". (here)
According to yesterday's mail on line, when the police placed evidence bags over James Holmes' hands to preserve gunshot residue, he "began playing with them as if they were puppets".
