Burningly it came on me all at once,
This was the place! those two hills on the right,
Crouched like two bulls locked horn in horn in fight;
While to the left, a tall scalped mountain … Dunce,
Dotard, a-dozing at the very nonce,
After a life spent training for the sight!
What in the midst lay but the Tower itself?
The round squat turret, blind as the fool’s heart,
Built of brown stone, without a counter-part
In the whole world. The tempest’s mocking elf
Points to the shipman thus the unseen shelf
He strikes on, only when the timbers start.
Not see? because of night perhaps?—why, day
Came back again for that! before it left,
The dying sunset kindled through a cleft:
The hills, like giants at a hunting, lay,
Chin upon hand, to see the game at bay,—
“Now stab and end the creature—to the heft!”
Not hear? when noise was everywhere! it tolled
Increasing like a bell. Names in my ears
Of all the lost adventurers my peers,—
How such a one was strong, and such was bold,
And such was fortunate, yet, each of old
Lost, lost! one moment knelled the woe of years.
There they stood, ranged along the hill-sides, met
To view the last of me, a living frame
For one more picture! in a sheet of flame
I saw them and I knew them all. And yet
Dauntless the slug-horn to my lips I set,
And blew. “_Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came._”
This is an excerpt from the Robert Browning poem that inspired Stephen Kings magnum opus, The Dark Tower.
For anyone who is a fan of Stephen King’s epic tale of the gunslinger, Roland Deschains and his ka-tet, on their quest for the Dark Tower and Gregory Hill’s artwork…then check this out!
You know what? If they don’t make the DT live action movie, I think an animation series would do it just as much, if not more justice! What do you think?
“All things happen in fives, or are divisible by or are multiples of five, or are somehow directly or indirectly appropriate to 5. The Law of Fives is never wrong.”
—Malaclypse the Younger, Principia Discordia, Page 00016
I discovered the Law of Fives around 2007, while reading book six of Stephen Kings, “Dark Tower: A Song For Susannah”. They mentioned the “Castle Discordia”, a few times and the name “Discordia” rang in my head. I Googled the word to appease my curiosity and stumbled upon this bizarre religion known as, Discordianism. Having recently come to terms with my 23 attachment, I was intrigued by the sub-religion’s definition of the enigma and the mysterious power behind it.
Was Obama’s presidency predetermined, years before he won the elections? These Illuminatus! cards seem to suggest just that…
