Onda-free, but full of Maat August 17, 2007

Filed under: dvd,joseph campbell,maat,mythology,onda — tim @ 9:50 am

I am now the proud owner of this:

That’s right — Joseph Campbell’s “The Power of Myth” series from PBS. Interviewed by Bill Moyers at the Skywalker Ranch in California, Campbell spend the course of the last two years of his life telling this information to Moyers. . We watched one or two of the episodes in my class “The Mythic Journey” and I was enthralled with the interview on our “collective myths” and what makes us human.

I bought it with a gift certificate I got for my birthday. I am very excited to own it and look forward to watching it, piece by piece in the future.

It has a bonus interview with Lucas about the mythology of Star Wars. Yahoo!

    OOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH did you make the connection between “Sky Walker” and “Sky Father”??

    In all seriousness, though, I think that this kind of stuff is much more enjoyable now. In high school it was just more crap that I didn’t want to read.

    no, I did not make that connection because that’s a bogus one.

    And yes, it is much more enjoyable these days. Back then, it was way over our heads and there’s nothing worse than having to try and watch/understand Joseph Campbell at 8am.
