    Phoenix Dawn with REsponse from Rae Dawn herself.

    Phoenix Dawn from Jake Kotze on Vimeo.

    Ill update, arrange and explain the stills and video a bit over the next few days, so check back in if you want to learn more...
    This video was requested by Andras Jones to accompany his Radio8Ball show and guest appearance with Rae Dawn Chong.

    Here is the Facebook events page for this particular show.

    And here is Rae Dawns warm REsponse. Such kind words.

    Radio8Ball - Rae Dawn Chong pt. 2 from the archiver on Vimeo.

    When I made the Phoenix Dawn video I imagined I was talking directly to her. I feel like the part of me that creates - the silent mystery - was heard by the part inside her that creates.
    Julie Andrews runs through a patch of Yellow Flowers a personal sync favorite and strange attractor to themes of Jupiter.

    Julie is a form of Julius meaning youthful and Son of Jupiter/Jove. Jupiter is the Jovian sphere thus the planet of Joy.
    We see a breakdancer doing a backspin on the Twin Towers on the poster for Beat Street. The WTC is significant as their destruction - the symbolic collapse of the external Holy Temple - mark the beginning of our rapid transformation into Conscious facets of the greater Being WE/ME are. The collapse of the Twins or 2 (I-I) signifies the destruction of duality and collective movement towards unified awareness.
    That the WTC structure strange attracts a dancer shows how the tragedy is also a reason to party. Just like any death, it veils a rebirth. In this case the Phoenix that rises from the WTC's ashes worth dancing/celebrating is Your own awareness of existing a.k.a Cosmic Consciousness.
    This transformation of unconscious violent act of destruction into the very substance of awareness is a miracle if I could ever point at one.
    Rae Dawn stars in another WTC featuring film The Squeeze. It's poster is fascinating to say the least. We see Batman Micheal Keaton being compressed between the holy of holies of the cracking Twin Pillars by a giant hand. I have ran across this image before but as I can't find a torrent online, nor a DVD in stores (possibly no such thing has been pressed yet..) its mysteries remain sealed to us, for now..
    In Beat Street we meet Breakdancer Lee Kirkland and his older brother DJ Kenny 'Double K' Kirkland.
    Lee looks at himself in the mirror and sees the Tiger, animal of 2010 and similarly striped resonator of Jupiter. This is the union of Jupiter and Moon as mirrors are resonators of the moon.
    Jupiter Moon to be explored at length in the next 'biggish' post Scarlet Dragon 3.
    That this is happening in the room of Double K shows how the Jupiter/Tiger is central to the realization of K2 (11:11) or Kosmic Konsciousness.
    Above is Double K performing at his tragically deceased friend Ramo's wake party. The WTC crowns 'Double K' as a birthday cake with sparklers moves into shot. Perfectly susynct as 911 was WE/ME's Birthday, intimately connected with Death. The real death is the change in collective identity. Moving away from being just a limited individual self into the greater Being of I AM.
    We have seen the symbol of Kosmic Konsciousness, Double K, strange attracted to the Twins before. This is the neon lightning bolt - bolts are from Zeus/Jupiter, same story over and over, dig? - K's of King Kupa being held by blue hands decorating the side of one of the Twin Towers in the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie.
    Note the sprayed Double K

    Lee and Double K live in the the mid eighties South Bronx where blossoming Hip-Hop, DJ, Graffiti and Breakdancing culture is the order of the day.

    The below syncs from Commando I just forgot to put in the video. Its a shame as they are strong.
    Schwarzenegger gets a clue, a key the the Sunspot hotel.
    He and Rae Dawn arrive at the Sunspot in a beat up yellow Porsche. Yellow cars are resonators of the sun gods chariot. I had to surrender a bit to not be upset at neglecting to include this one.

    Tales From The Dark Side: The Movie

    Rae Dawn passes five Rider Waite Tarot cards, stuck up on the wall of an artists studio. The're tiny but if you look carefully you can just make out The High Priestess at the top. Eventually this work will be done with higher rez material..
    Later at an art gallery the camera has jast panned from left, where stands Rae Dawn, to this dude who moves just so that the words AR or RA, the sun god, appears. A good one but tricky to justify putting in the video as other Rae Dawn sun syncs are so overt and many folks are still worming to this sync logic we take for granted.

    Nice vid, Jake. Looking forward to seeing how tings unfold on Radio 8Ball. The name Chong can relate to meaning plenty, sublime, stretching, extension and expansion.

    excellent Vid.. I see you've reached the point of insanity/bliss where you are answering back with a 'yeah' to your cosmic puzzle pieces in actor form. I'm tempted to talk to them as well every now and again. :)

    Psst.. Sometimes they say things back.

    Shutter poster also says "someone is missing" and the lighthouse ep contains the subplot of aaron who is "missing'.

    You MUST SEE her episode in the movie 'Tales from the Darkside'. I can't ruin it. Plus she is Chongs daughter and C Thomash Howells wife. I would like to see some Soul Man with them two worked in. It's said a lot about racism when it came out in the 80's.

    Jake Kotze said...

    I saw her Tales from the Dark Side episode. Its rad.
    I didn't include it as it one would have to show how BAD is GOOD/GOD and that's tricky given the context of how the rest of the material was framed.
    I'll post a nice shot of her with Tarot cards above her head from that right at the bottom of this post.

    thanks for this and looking forward to Scarlet Dragon 3? Jupiter moon is OUR biggest mystery right now, the rainbow bridge..

    Arrowsmith said...

    That was pure joy to watch and read. Thanks Jake.

    Hey Jake,
    I too have had my eye on the poster for The Squeeze for some time. No luck here finding a copy of the apparently forgetable flick. However, I did manage to find a trailer on and Keaton appeared on Letterman (courtesy of Youtube) promoting it and hamming it up more like the Beetlejuice joker than the Batman. Check it out. Great work!

    Unknown said...

    Great video! That's so cool she actually got to see it and comment on it.

    Here's another one, Jake- 4616 Melrose Place? 4+6+1+6=17

    Marc said...

    I'd be interested to find out more on this concept: "how BAD is GOOD/GOD"
    You've probably covered it already somewhere. if so can anyone point me to it?
