The blue moon factor!


It has long been noted that a blue moon has strange and mystical powers recognized clearly by the ancients. Over the years, the ancients disappeared and left of us wondering really what does a blue moon mean?

According to modern science, a blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. For a blue moon to occur, the first of the full moons must appear at or near the beginning of the month so that the second will fall within the same month (the average span between two moons is 29.5 days). May 2007 has two full moons (at least in the Western Hemisphere). The second full moon or Blue Moon is today (May 31).

Elvis knew the true meaning of "Blue Moon." Consider these lyrics:

"Blue moon,
You saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own.

Blue moon,
You knew just what I was there for.
You heard me saying a pray for
Someone I really could care for.

Blue moon,
You saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own.

Blue moon...
Without a love of my own."

Taken at face value, one would assume Elvis was saying that the blue moon evoked feelings of being blue. But further exploration of these lyrics lead to a deeper meaning: the blue moon creates the blue men who in turn form the Blue Man Group!
Note the photo above of a past encounter in Las Vegas where strange, blue men used to perform in, you guessed it, a pyramid. And what does this have to do with a blue moon you ask? Think about it...pyramids=Ancient Egypt. Enough said?

Elvis has given us the sign!

It's amazing just how much sense you make.

Does he have his own pill encrusted sarcophagus ????
Did he decorate his pyramid to look like "The Jungle Room" ????

Hmmm .....

Tim ID said...

Shandi,
Scary, isn't it?

Blazngfyre,
I hope you aren't dissing the king. This is, after all, Dizgraceland. Besides, compared to today's "stars" Elvis would be a lightweight when it comes to ingesting foreign substances.

Hayden said...

what under the sun!????

er....

think I'll hide under the bed until it's over.

Tim ID said...

Hayden,
To be more precise, you should probably say, "what under the moon?"

Elvis was just a puppet. He never wrote any lyrics. I don't think he even had the poetry in him to author "hunk-a hunk-a burning love." Did he?

I thought it was bleu moon because of the type of cheese it's made of. Yours makes much more sense.

Tim ID said...

JP,
By George, I think you've got it!

Kristy,
You're dead to me.

Lights,
Cheese.

I LOVE Elvis!
I would NEVER "diss" the KING!
I was just admiring some of his eccentricities and curious to know if he carried them to the Pyramids, or created new ones.

Tim ID said...

Blaznfyre,
The king forgives you (note this only happens once in a blue moon).

Zagu said...

O, Tim, when the Dummy met the Blue Man, he planted a big blue kiss on her. She walked all over Vegas with a big blue kiss and couldn't have been happier.
I haven't been around in a blue moon. Sorry about that.

Angel Without Wings said...

Blue moon, blue men, blue man group, pyramids, Egypt....I think I'm missing something here ....but I do love the colour Blue.

Blazngfyre said...

Ahhhh .... methinks I'm starting to see the Blue Moons over MyHammy ....

Tim ID said...

Zagu, I settled for a handshake as you can see. Seeing the Blue Men does change a person, doesn't it? Glad you are home and safe and sound.

Angel, Once in a blue moon I babble incoherently...well, maybe more than once. The Blue Man Group is a performance art troup that performs in the US. One group of them perform in Las Vegas. They used to perform at the Luxor which is a Egyptian themed casino shaped like a pyramid. I was just having fun with the blueness of it all.

Blaznfyre,
I thought the lady would be seeing the blues sooner or later.

Whitesnake said...

sometime ya so full of blue ya make a blindman cry.

The crux of the blue moon is me!

Time to get back and do what I do best..............

Blue moon,
I saw you standing alone,
Yeah right! cos ya one ugly looking dude.............

Just kidding my friend........

Hope all is well

Tim ID said...

Whitesnake,
Good to see you out and slithering about. Your comment reminded me of a cheer they used to do when I was in junior high:

North Vikings don't be blue, Frankenstein was ugly, too,
All right, uh, uh, all right.

Take care, mate!
