We touched on David Bowie's anti-Scottish independence stance at the Brit awards in the post - The Starman and Scottish Independence - tying it in with The Wizard of Oz, Aleister Crowley and a potential esoteric message:
The chorus is loosely based on Harold Arlen's "Over the Rainbow" from the film The Wizard of Oz, alluding to the "Starman"'s extraterrestrial origins (over the rainbow) (the octave leap on the word "Starman" is identical to that on the word "Somewhere" in "Over the Rainbow")
According to yesterday's mail on line, another global "celebrity" is advocating non-independence; none other than Kermit the Frog from the Muppet Show. Apparently he made the comments in this week's Big Issue publication.
What is interesting is not the puppet's words, but rather the fact that the Government semi-answered questions on Kermit's involvement in the debate:
Downing Street refused to be drawn on whether it had coerced the Muppets into the political debate.
‘Are you suggesting somebody might be pulling the strings?’ David Cameron’s official spokesman told journalists at a briefing.
He gave no answer when asked if the Prime Minister ‘had a hand in Kermit’.
Here at newspaceman we believe that that there is reverse psychology at play given the Scottish psyche, and that Muppet involvement just adds to that feeling. Furthermore, we are interested in some of the other aspects of the Muppets which appear to tie in with our ongoing thoughts, especially regarding "mind control".
For example, there's Lady Gaga, who it must be said is a puppet too (Delicately probing Gaga) :
And then, going back to the start, there's the Muppets' Wizard of Oz movie, which stars a hip hop star, Ashanti, along with Quentin Tarantino. From examiner.com :
Parents need to know that this Muppet caper operates on two levels, with numerous gags that mainly adults will understand. The movie includes mischievous references to R-rated movies (Kill Bill, Passion of the Christ) and pretty far-out rock and roll, like the legend that Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album has been used as an "alternative soundtrack" to the 1939 Wizard of Oz with trippy results.
As noted many times here before, Scottish independence and it's importance operates on two levels too.
