I watched the David Bowie documentary recently released on HBO GO, “The Last Five Years.” Like nearly everything else on HBO, it was mostly liberal propaganda with little insight. It claimed to be about the last few years of Bowie’s life with flashbacks to earlier points in his career but it completely ignored the most important period and manufactured several fictions.
Bowie’s final album “Blackstar,” whose title track alludes to the Nordic village of Ørmen, has its closest thematic and musical similarities to “Station to Station,” which Bowie released during his prophetic period as the Thin White Duke. The documentary makes no mention of “Station to Station” or the Thin White Duke period. Instead it focuses on the supposed gun control message of “Valentine’s Day” which makes no policy prescription for mass shootings, and claims, without evidence, that “Lazarus,” arguably the best track from “Blackstar” and the title of Bowie’s successful musical, has something to do with Jewish open borders poet Emma Lazarus, who wrote the words regrettably attached to the Statue of Liberty. Truth is far more interesting than these delusions, but for HBO, it is useless if it cannot be used to spread an anti-gun, pro-amnesty agenda.
If you are reading this, you are probably thinking about watching the documentary to learn something about Bowie, or, like me, you are upset about the documentary’s failings. In either case, IPR-X can provide you with some of the useful, insightful information you seek. Let’s look at the relevant connections to the end of Bowie’s life and more importantly, what happened after he died.
- It is speculated, “Lazarus” (or at least a part of the song) was influenced by an IPR post from Lazarus Mudd in 2014, which depicted New York City as a Sodom and Gomorrah awash with money, greed, and vice. The presence of the Republican Party in Trump Tower culminates with freedom and a rising of the spirit in the manner of Lazarus of Bethany.
- “Blackstar” hearkening to “Station to Station” reflects the political climate around the release in January 2016. Examination of “Station to Station” shows a prophetic connection to Donald Trump and his rise to the US presidency.
- In fact, a performance of “Station to Station” itself was prominent at the 2016 Republican National Convention. As a fan of Bowie, President Trump likely appreciates the vision of the Thin White Duke.
“Making sure White stains”
On the day of execution the new arises from the gallows. Everything dies again to create anew. The cycle continues and continues. Like Ymir, Ask and Embla went Blackstar. Their offspring and all successive generations did likewise. Through the tilted order of life and death the Nordic race of man multiplied within the boundaries of Midgard, as fate would have it.
This path correlates to, but does not necessarily mirror, the runes the Norns carved at the base of Yggdrasil, the universal ash tree. Only women kneel and smile, at the centre of it all. The Norn’s runes provoke even the most powerful of the ancient Nordic astronauts. Odin sought the wisdom of the runes and sacrificed an eye to acquire them. Sacrifices must be made in order to obtain what we desire.
You must sacrifice your eyes so that you may truly see.
All is there. Fate is nearly sealed. We must strive to find Truth before our time expires. Look within ourselves to see it all.
As you all know, one year ago today was the day the great David Bowie died, two days after his 69th birthday and release of his masterpiece “Blackstar”. Two days ago, on what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday, an EP titled “No Plan” came out. I’ve been listening to it non-stop ever since.
It starts with “Lazarus”, a great song (and video) originally released on “Blackstar” which includes the unforgettable line “Look up here, I’m in heaven“.
Next is the title track “No Plan”, which seems to have been written from the perspective of someone who has died.
The third track, “Killing a Little Time”, concerns Bowie’s anger at no longer being able to write more songs because of his death.
The last track, “When I Met You”, wraps up the EP in experimental fashion with noted use of vocal overlays, which evokes a mysterious and spiritual sense.
Hallo. Mitt Navn Er Magnus, the Oracle of Ørmen.
In the villa of Ørmen stands a solitary candle. The light upon my eyes implants a vision.
Billions of years ago, the Giant Ymir went Blackstar. From his remains formed the Milky Way and eventually the Earth. Many years later, rains fell upon the Earth and spawned two Ash trees. When the trees died their trunks fell into the sea. Ancient Nordic Astronauts Vili, Vé, and their leader Odin discovered the trunks washed ashore and used them to craft the first Nordic human beings, the male Ask and the female Embla. The Astronauts endowed the beings with life, animation, intelligence, speech, and the senses. They were placed in Midgard, in the centre of it all, with the protection of a great wall from the savages who roamed the Earth.
