Wonder Woman Easter egg

“Film Review: Eugene Brave Rock Speaks Blackfoot to Wonder Woman in DC’s Best Film Ever”

I woke up this Saturday morning to see a 9:15 a.m. showing of the DC Comics and Warner Brothers feature Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the fearless Amazonian heroine. I was thrilled that Native American actor Eugene Brave Rock, an actor and stuntman that ran a stunt ‘boot camp’ on The Revenant with numerous other Hollywood credits under his belt, would be appearing in the film.

What I didn’t expect was to be overcome with emotion when Eugene Brave Rock’s character ‘Chief’ met Wonder Woman, who was spectacularly portrayed by Gal Gadot. Why? His first words to her were in Blackfoot. Even better, he introduced himself as Napi, the Blackfoot demi-god who is known as a trickster and a storyteller.

Congratulations, Indian country. We all get to share a secret moment in the Wonder Woman movie. If you speak Blackfoot, the magic will surely be tenfold.

“We are starstuff…”

We are starstuff, we are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. As we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective.

From the looks of it, it's probably a fertility rite.

NeoNotes — Help

I think it goes beyond religion.

I think it's the keystone to Western Civilization. ReligiousTolerance.org calls it the Ethic of Reciprocity. Christians call it the Golden Rule. My favorite version comes from the movies.

"Be excellent to each other! And party on Dudes!"

Philosophically, the EoR assumes that there are other people and they are just as important as you are. If you want to be treated well, you have to treat others well.

I call it parity. Some call it fairness. It's all the same thing. Help if you can because you may want help later.

Riding the Music Part II

I got an email asking why I didn't include Pagan music. Long story short, I think we need to look for connections beyond things that are just "Pagan" or Pagan related. There is meaning and life all around us, we do not need to shut ourselves off from it just because it didn't come from an approved source.
