Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you - even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Only six days until Amanda comes home from tour…
Not that I’m counting or anything, of course.
It was a very poor pink pony, who had saved up all its ponymoney the previous year and got the finest blue glittery star it could. It had reveled in how fashionable it was, and been overjoyed when all the other ponies gave it envious looks and sidelong glances.
But fashion moved on inexorably in pony world and after a year the blue star it was so proud of went out of fashion. All the hip cool ponies were wearing silver stars. Our pony had spent all its ponymoney on a blue star, and was going to have to start saving up for a silver star, but it did not yet have enough.
And somewhere the fashion-star-designing ponies were laughing, because they knew that by the time the pony could afford a silver star, they would already have moved on to mauve.
Yoshitaka Amano meets David Bowie
Wow, can’t believe I never heard of this. According to this interview (click), the artwork (of which there is a good deal more) also features Iman and most of the clothing is designed by Dior. Neil Gaiman later wrote a short story based on the art.
Amano + Bowie + Iman + Dior + Gaiman. Collaboration is a beautiful thing.
WELL DANG I’LL BE.
