there is Carmen Sandiego
Carmen means "song" but there is this
Variant of Carmel. One of the titles of the Virgin Mary is Santa Maria del Carmen, meaning "Saint Mary of Mount Carmel", and this form of the name honors her.
wow, now this carmen san diego post really post really opens up a can of worms! LOL thanks for introducing it!
while initially it has nothing to do with a central female character or star, "San Diego" immediately brought to mind this "anchorman" named Ron "Burgundy". naturally, burgundy being a shade of red.
two of ron burgundy's most famed one liners in the movie are "You are a smelly pirate hooker!" and then "Why don't you go back to your home on Whore Island!"
kinda reasonates the whole "whore of babylon" thing mentioned earlier in the thread eh? but what i find even more interesting is the "carmen" reasonance with mary...seems as if we have "dualing" mary's in the bible, one depicted as the virgin mother, the other depicted as a repentant "whore" at the feet of jesus during the crucufuxion (no offense to gnostics, just noting a sync).
"whore island" strongly brings to mind the goddess columbia who's home is on ellis island. in fact, i cant tell you how many times i have heard the statue of liberty refferred to as the "whore of babylon" on various alternative type sites that study these things.
and then there is this "The so-called Statue of Liberty in New York harbour was presented in 1884 as a gift from the French Grand Orient Temple Masons to the Masons of America in celebration of the centenary of the first Masonic Republic."
i am trying to find the original source, but i actually recall once reading an article that the statue of liberty was designed after a "whore" who was brought into a government building by the jacobins at the immediate ending of the french revolution, and she was draped in a robe and given a torch to hold as a sign of victory.
the goddess columbia being interchangeable with isis, ishtar, etc. the constellation "columba" sits beside canis major which features the dualing stars sirius a and b. as a matter of fact, columba was once included in canis major and was later seperated and now it is the "dove".
ellis island is on the east coast, san diego on the west. if you look at many first degree masonic tracing boards you will notice that east and west are actually depicted as above and below, not necessarily left and right.
"smelly pirate hooker" i find funny because most known historical pirates we freemasons and their jolly roger is the skull and bones. i remember watching a discovery channel show where they excavated sunken treasure from what was believed to be a blackbeard ship on the oceans floor, when they brought up a gold plate that had the masonic square and compass carved into it by hand.
incidentally, "cannabis" is "2 dogs", "bi" or "bis" meaning 2 or dual...and aint it ironic how people cultivate the FEMALE plants to get "high" (above)?
