Why don't you stay for the night
Or maybe a bite?
I could show you my favorite obsession,
I've been making a man
With blond hair and a tan
That's good for relieving my tension

We are now in the few days of the last chorus reprise in Sweet Transvestite and one of the main things that came to my attention were the transgender athlete bans being considered in some states and the consequences. I am not from one of these Varsity type community backgrounds (nor am I American for that matter so I don't know if I am even using the right words) and I don't understand how essential sport is to the culture but I am assuming this action from the NCAA is important. Personally, just to be clear, if you can't handle this kind of pre-post-identity reality parade now you are going to really struggle when it comes to genetically engineered goalies who are a wall of human flesh, dolls inhabited by AIs, your boss is transgenic half-dolphin and then the aliens land or whatever. Given a choice, a third of the world would probably rather have an animal head right now... given a choice.
It is clear from the events of the last few days that Prince Harry is one of the core Rockies. Returning to the UK for his Grandfather's funeral, many accusing him beforehand of possibly pushing him over the edge with that interview, is going to be an incredibly high pressure experience... for the character. Searching through the annals the word Rocky has been attributed to Prince Harry at various intervals - his ''rocky road'' in California, his ''rocky relationship'' with brother, father, grandmother, and at times his ''rocky marriage.'' Rocky from Rocky Horror show is meant to be a kind of placid pliable re-modelled ''New New-Age Guy''' fresh out of the rainbow chamber - a life of service to Frank'n'furter ahead of him. Many people from the anti-Meghan camp call him out for being perhaps too respectful to his wife's positions and too willing to embrace that California Woke style. A note for those very familiar with the film, Rocky is paired off with Columbia in the Don't Dream It, Be It sequence, Columbia already established as being played by Meghan - or - is ''Columbia'' playing Meghan might be the better question... If you forgive me going all Six Characters in Search of an Author on you.
Speaking of Harry's service I still think on the grand metaphor level, as opposed to the charting of an individual actor navigating the role, I see something of ''a draft'' coming at least in America. In this way, Harry's association with the military, like his dutiful Queen following Grandfather, may resonate with what is ahead. There are a lot of dams, etc, need building real quick and a lot of post-Covid unemployed youth to occupy. I think there will be some weaving of these issues the only question is how it is branded.
Kanye is on the cards to be one of these characters for sure, his association with the Sweet Transvestite, Caitlyn Jenner and his prior ultra-ing or whatever make this virtually inevitable - the question is which one? Does blonde hair and ''a tan'' actually relate to Kanye? Is Kanye more of an Eddie than a Rocky?
And what's next for us is a nice hiatus from the musical songs for a bit as we will wait another 40 days or so to reach Sword of Damocles. If you're an investor, its probably worth investing in gold before then looking at the video sequence. We will be doing some analysis, pontification and prognostication on the action sequence which shows Rocky being brought to life out of his rainbow resonance chamber (by the same device that controls the Medusa Transducer if memory serves) over the next few days but these days will include particularly big stories about med-tech, energy crisis and whatever it means to the New New Age Guy.
So come up to the lab
And see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with anticipation
But maybe the rain
Is really to blame
So I'll remove the cause but not the symptom
