Where Icarus Flies, Episode 13, Don’t call it a comeback…

WhereIF Episode 13 Contents

Episode 13 has been in the works for a long time. Almost ten years! I now know how Meat Loaf must have felt with Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell or Boston with Third Stage. 😊

In any case, it is good to be back in the studio. A lot is going on that needs yet another voice to give social commentary. Well, either that or I just like to hear myself talk!

Let’s Play Catch-Up

There is so much that has happened. Can I cram it all into one little segment? Nope. I won’t even try. I will, however, cover the things that stand out to be some of the more significant happenings in the last ten years. I will also give an update on my own life. A nice fireside chat.

Trump’s New Reality

I, of course, cannot start up again without starting with Trump. Just the way he likes it. However, instead of attacking and complaining, which is easy to do, I’d like to take a look at what is happening right now. The impeachment investigation is in full swing, and subpoenas are being issued and ignored. Let’s look at what that means with an eye on history and some interesting case law setting precedent. I am no legal scholar, nor do I pretend to be one, but I found some interesting things in my amateur research.

As I was walking down the street I swear I heard a familiar sound. It tugged at the far reaches of my mind. No, more than a sound. Music. A tune. A jingle. A song. I was not quite sure, but there it was hanging in the air around me. It wrapped around me like a cozy blanket. So safe. So warm. So protecting. So welcoming.

Is it getting louder? I think maybe it is…

Crystal water turns to dark 
Where ere it's presence leaves it's mark
And boiling currents pound like drums
When something wicked this way comes…

A presence dark invades the fair 
And gives the horses ample scare 
Chaos rains and panic fills the air
When something wicked this way comes... 

Ill winds mark it's fearsome flight, 
And autumn branches creak with fright.
The landscape turns to ashen crumbs,
When something wicked this way comes... 

Flowers bloom as black as night 
Removing color from your sight 
Nightmarish vines block your way 
Thorns reach out to catch their prey 

And by the pricking of your thumbs 
Realize that their poison numbs 
From frightful blooms, rank odors seep 
Bats & beasties fly & creep 

'Cross this evil land, ill winds blow 
Despite the darkness, mushrooms glow 
All will rot & decompose 
For something wicked this way grows.

-- Ray Bradbury
Double, double toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes...

-- Macbeth Act 4, Scene 1
William Shakespeare
