Led Zeppelin One, and Seventeen Minutes Later, Led Zeppelin Two
Led Zeppelin One, and Seventeen Minutes Later, Led Zeppelin Two
Robert Plant was once questioned about his album, Pictures At Eleven (1982), because it featured a fire hose, and a picture of him afire on the cover. Although the rock band, Def Leppard, who obviously owed much to Led Zeppelin, the progenitors of the heavy metal genre in rock music, released the album, Pyromania, it didn’t attract so much attention as ex-led singer with Zeppelin, Robert Plant, whose Pictures At Elevenconjured up fire raising imagery, for example, ‘Burning Down One Side’:
‘My knees are weak - my head is reeling.
Consumed by the fire in your eyes.
Stepped in and shattered my defenses.’1
The addition of the track, ‘Far Post’ for the remastered 2007 CD version didn’t improve Plant’s ‘psychological profiling’, and post 9/11 music fans probably would also associate the track, ‘Fat Lip’,with the taking out of the two front teeth of New York city’s Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, when terrorists crashed hijacked civil airliners into the World Trade Center there:
‘I remember the day.
Sure as winter follows fall;
Sure as maybe I will call,
Just remember the day.
Far off the hazy day ...
Long gone the lingering gray
Chill winds blow cold
Around the fire's glow.’2
On Christmas Day, December 25, 2009,Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was on its way to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport in the US when an extremist Moslem terrorist from the same Al Qaeda organization claiming to represent Islam on 9/11 tried to detonate an explosive device aboard the passenger airliner, an Airbus A330-323E, which would have synchronized with Plant’s ‘Worse Than Detroit’ for the 290 passengers:
‘Information, hear me calling, calling
Find that number, give it to me one more time
It's been so long since I saw her
Anything I'd give to hear the little girl of mine.’3
Pictures At Eleven has imagery relatable to 9/11 as well as science fiction writer Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, a 1953 novel about ‘firemen’ who burned people’s houses down because they could read. Made into a movie, Fahrenheit 451(1966) starred actress Julie Christie as fireman Guy Montag’s neighbor, Clarisse McClellan, and the premise was of people who memorized books, because they’d been made illegal to prevent a more intelligent society from arising that might conceivably prove difficult for a brutal dictatorship to rule:
‘Out at the airport where the planes come in
People buzzing like flies
Out at the airport where the planes come in
See the hours go flashing by
But you know it's gonna get there
Around and around it's gonna spin.’4
The book’s title,Fahrenheit 451, relates to the temperature at which paper burns, so 9/11 is interpretable as Moslem extremists’ disapprobation for the Bible as the emergency number for the fire services in the US is 911.Moreover, the central character, Montag, that is, actor Oskar Werner in the movie, Fahrenheit 451, is required to burn his own home as someone found guilty of reading the Bible, so emphasizing the importance of the FDNY. Although originally commissioned by the Firefighters Association of Missouri, the statue of the ‘Kneeling Fireman’ was immediately taken as a symbol of the FDNY when it was being transported through New York city on 9/11, and received a permanent place in the nation’s hearts on September 22, 2011, in front of the Emigrant Savings Bank on East 43rd Street between Madison and Fifth avenues:
‘I want to fill my calling,
to give the best in me,
to guard my friend and neighbor,
and protect his property.’
The irony of Fahrenheit 451 is that it’s the destruction of neighbors’ property that’s the objective of the firemen in the novel, which contravenes ‘The Fireman’s Prayer’ (1958), written by Alvin ‘Smokey’ Linn on the occasion of his failure to rescue three children at an apartment block in Wichita,Kansas.The owner of the property had placed iron bars on the windows for security, which prevented the rescuers from reaching the children, and Linn’s prayer written at 1 am at a table in the fire station was afterwards taken as an oath by the NYFD and others.
On April 13, 2015, home-made bombs disrupted the Boston Marathon ‘runners’, and it was at Boston, Logan airport, Massachusetts, where the 9/11 hijackers got their planes. Consequently, the model for the terrorists was the William F. Nolan novel, Logan’s Run (1967), which featured ‘sandmen’ pursuing ‘runners’ to kill them before they reached the age of 21 because the society was running low on resources and couldn’t support an aging population, that is, as Robert Plant’s lyrics to ‘Worse Than Detroit’ suggest, 9/11 and the bombing of the Boston Marathon had as its aim the prevention of the birth of the 21st century by dumbing down the people through fear and violence:
‘All she carries is impossible to use
It's built for speed man, watch her coming, coming
Moves so fast in someone else's shoes
Looks so fine lord, watch them running.’
Fahrenheit 451presents the dangers of societies developing into ‘cargo cults’, which was a phenomenon observed by American servicemen in the South Pacific during WWII. Primitive islanders would build replica airplanes that didn’t fly, because they didn’t know about engines, so Pictures At Eleven portrayed the society that hadn’t remembered CDs, that is, they’d have to remember how to manufacture CDs before Pictures At Eleven was available as a CD.The beginnings of the cargo cult as basic economic theory originated with Ned Ludd, who having broken two stocking frames in the textile industry in 1799 gave his name to the ‘Luddites’, who were determined that nothing was going to work without them, that is, they were slavers. In short, capitalism made of the Eartha ‘cargo cult’ in which genius was destroyed to turn people into slaves, so that they worked harder to reconstruct what was already known; for example, stocking frames and airplane engines.
Airplane engines were the essence of the 20th century, although Led Zeppelin’s band name derived from the LZ 129 Hindenburg Zeppelin airship that crashed while attempting to dock with its mooring mast on May 6, 1937, at Naval Air Station Lakehurstin Manchester Township, state of New Jersey, United States.A picture of the crash was on the sleeve of the album,Led Zeppelin I (1969), which seemed to feature several references to disaster, for example, ‘Your Time Is Gonna Come’:‘Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart.’6
Although Zeppelin airships hadn’t featured much for Germany against the rest of the world in WWII (1939-45), they had featured for Germany against the rest of the world team in WWI (1914-18), so it came as something of a surprise to find an English rock outfit celebrating war with the US on its first album cover. Keith Moon, drummer with The Who, suggested that the idea would ‘go down like a lead balloon’, but the Led Zeppelin juggernaut stuttered on for a decade before its drummer, John Bonham, choked to death in bed after a drinking bout on 24 September, 1980, while the group were rehearsing for a North American tour. Although the terrorist group, Al Qaeda, operating under the auspices of the notoriously misogynist Taliban regime of Afghanistan seemed to have little to do with Germany, 9/11 precipitated the outbreak of war with Iraq, an ally of the Japan, Italy, Germany Axis powers during WWII. Dictator Saddam Hussein offered bases to Al Qaeda ‘live’ on TV in the aftermath of 9/11, which ultimately resulted in the US’ army’s invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and the Nazi-style dictator’s execution by hanging on December 30, 2006. In other words, Led Zeppelin’s perceived support for Germany’s aspirations to global power resulted in the Twin Towers being seen as Led Zeppelin II, although it was the tail on for the track‘Black Country Woman’ from the 1975 album Physical Graffiti that was seemingly aimed at those reading Led Zeppelin as augurs:
‘Shall we roll it, Jimmy?’
‘We're rolling on, what, one?
‘No, one again?’
‘Got to get this airplane off.’
‘Nah, leave it, yeah.’
Although sound engineer Eddie Kramer is talking with producer and lead guitarist, Jimmy Page, it’s Robert Plant that tells him to record the aeroplane going overhead, so it’s heard on the intro to ‘Black Country Woman’: ‘You didn't have to crucify me like you did.’ Apocryphally, Led Zeppelin were still trying to get the aeroplane‘off’ when it crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Centre at 8. 46 am on 9/11 and, failing that, remained recording on ‘one’, so that the second aeroplane didn’t appear 17 minutes later to crash into the South Tower at 9.03 to promote the release of the remastered version of Led Zeppelin II on June 2, 2014, and which featured the track, ‘What Is And What Should Never Be’:
‘Everybody I know seems to know me well
But they're never gonna know that I'm gonna move like hell.’8
Casual anthropologists would observe that the 21st century never properly got off the ground after 9/11, 2001. The deposing of Saddam Hussein led to the rise of the Independent State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) led by Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, an Iraqi and putative successor to Saddam Hussein, who was proclaimed Caliph of an Independent Levant (IL), that is, what came to be known as ‘9/11’s events’were reinterpretable as a German nein to the Levant’s Jewish future. The German National Socialist (Nazi) Party elected in 1933 led by Adolf Hitler pogromed 20, 000, 000 Jews in the name of fascism, and given the fact that the Moslem nations of Islam in Arabia have been trying to destroy the state of Israel in Palestine since its inception in 1948 as war reparations for the Jewish people, it seems evident that 9/11 was devised to threaten Israel through a resurgence of Nazism and the establishment of an Islamic Levant incorporating Palestine.
In 1976 Led Zeppelin released the album Presence, which featured a mysterious ‘black object’ as the centerpiece of a number of photographs. To 21st century ‘gamers’ it’s obviously a ‘joy stick’ which, a term used by pilots for the main control lever in aeroplanes, was adopted by video game players for the control they used to interact with what was being screened. For the 21st century it was a symbol of 9/11and the terrorists’ guiding the hijacked civil airliners to their destinations because that was their ‘game’.
Although in the Bugs Bunny cartoon, Baseball Bugs (1946), Bugs takes on ‘the Gas-House Gorillas’ as the entire team of ‘the Tea Totallers’, and wins after a Gorilla hits the ball out of the park so far that Bugs has to take a cab to ‘the Umpire State Building’ to catch the Gorilla out.In the film made of the 9/11, 2001 disaster,World Trade Centre (2005),the two front teeth of the Warner Bros. cartoon charactercan be seen as symbolized by ‘The Tooth Towers’. Bugs’ catchphrase was, ‘What’s up doc?’ Although the Microsoft Corporation were famous for word documents, for example, .docx, it’s development of the games’ console X-Box meant that the Twin Towers were what was ‘up’ before Bugs was gotten out of its trouser bottoms prior to Tony Stark’s putting his suit on to go to Afghanistan as Iron Man (2008): ‘I'm an army.’9
Led Zeppelin’s ‘Achilles Last Stand’ (1976) refers to the legendary weakness of the Greek, which was proverbially referred to in Western literature as the ‘Achilles heel’ of anyone who had some weakness or other that wasn’t immediately apparent. Believed invulnerable apart from his heel, Achilles was also valued as much as an army and was killed at the siege of Troy in Asia Minor.The Greeks were infamous for having institutionalized the host womb slavery of women for homosexuality in pederasty for war. Troy was taken by the Greeks’ ruse of hiding inside a huge hollow wooden horse left outside the city gates and waiting for the Trojans to take it within the walls to where the Greeks emerged to enslave the host wombs of the Trojan women for homosexuality in pederasty for war and spread the contagion further:
‘Below the streets that steam and hiss
The devil is in his hole.’10
By the late 20th century the modern successors to the Greeks, ‘the geeks’ had devised ‘Trojan viruses’ to disable computer defense systems. The Trojan viruses were based on the ‘incurable killer disease’ paradigm of HIV/AIDS discovered by Africa’s DR Congo in 1983. Spread by men’s mixing blood, shit and semen in the anus, the mutated simian virus (SIV) collapsed the organs of the body before killing the brain, and so it was that the Al Qaeda terrorists sought to get Bugs in the Iron Man’s trousers before the Warner Bros. giant could think about making any moves to manumit its albums’ sleeves:
‘When you're in flight, yo, you gotta fly high
So you were born, so you die.’11
‘The D.O.C. and the Doctor’ is a track from the album No One Can Do It Better (1989) by Tracy Lynn Curry, a.k.a. The D.O.C., a Warner Bros. ‘rap’ musician, whose pharynx ‘voice box’ containing his epiglottis, that is, doc’s ‘Word’, and euphemistically called ‘Adam’s apple’, was crushed in an accident when his face slammed into a tree, so making him symbolic of ‘the Big Apple’, a euphemism for New York city finding its voice again after 9/11 as well as Saddam and Eve’s. Saddam Hussein’s name means ‘small handsome man’ and ‘crusher’, which is what God told Eve her ‘seed’ would be. Despite ‘enmity’ with the ‘serpent’s seed’: ‘You will crush the head of the serpent, but he will bruise your heel.’ (Gen: 3. 15) Iraq was where Eden was thought to have been, because of references to the rivers Tigris and Euphrates, and Eden was where the first woman created by God emerged from the side of the first man created by God, Eve, who was tempted by the angel, Satan, who’d been turned into a serpent by God for rejecting God’s plan that the human host be greater than the angelic, to ‘eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil’, that is, death, saying ‘You shall be as gods.’ (Gen: 3. 5)The offer was power over ephemerals. However, God expelled Eve and Adam from Eden for rejecting the ‘tree of life’, which was immortality, and they’d die like all their progeny as slaves in the wars of the Empire of Satan before Redemption. According to Christianity, the teaching of the Jewish Messiah, Jesus ‘Christ’, ‘the chosen’, was Redemption: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ (Mk: 12. 31) Born uncontaminated by male semen from his mother, the Virgin Mary, Jesus was a ‘dissident’ and so taken to the hill of Calvary outside the city of Jerusalem where he was nailed to a cross of wood and died but experienced Resurrection and Ascension to heaven in prefiguration of that of woman’s seed. Consequently, in Christian iconography the Virgin Mary is depicted crushing the head of the serpent with her foot, because Jesus represents futanarian human brainpower produced from woman’s seed.
Iraq’s Saddam ‘crusher’ Hussein is Adam who’s sane and who ‘crushes’. According to Christianity Jesus was ‘the Second Adam’, and so Longinus pierced the side of Jesus upon the cross after his death to take from his rib ‘the Second Eve’, because the ‘the spirit of God’ is feminine: ‘Surely, this was the son of God.’ (Matt: 27. 54)In Judaism the feminine ‘spirit of God’ is called ‘Shekinah’, who was with the Jews on their way out of slavery in Egypt to Palestine. As it’s Jewish tradition that Jews can only be born from Jewish women, so women are Jews, which is a principle made clearer in Islam. Although the son of Abraham and Sara, Isaac, was the founder of Judaism, Sara was barren thereafter and so gave her maid, Hajer, to Abraham, who bore Ishmael, who founded Islam through his descendant, Mohamed, who received the Koran (610-30 C.E.),which was dictated by the angels of God,and permitted four wives to the Moslem people. Although Christianity uses Ishmael’s illegitimacy to illegitimize Islam, the four wives of Islam afford woman’s seed the opportunity to sexually reproduce from their own semen within the Islamic family. In short, 9/11 was a Moslem complaint about US ‘TV’, which didn’t admit to knowledge of woman’s seed, but rather lampooned it in transvestite comedy designed to make homosexuality attractive, and in lurid horror stories of ‘sex reassignment surgery’ (SRS) portray futanarian woman’s seed as aberrant and abhorrent. In offering bases to Al Qaeda, Saddam Hussein was taking upon himself the role of ‘crusher’ of the serpent’s head on behalf of ‘the people of the book’, which is the name given to those who are in the belief of God who created Adam.
Eve’s emergence from the side of Adam was a euphemism for birth through hermaphroditic self-fertilization, that is, Adam was woman’s seed. Born uncontaminated from his mother, the Virgin Mary, Jesus was Redemption for woman’s seed as ‘the Second Adam’ emergent from ‘the Second Eve’, rather than Eve emergent from Adam, that is, woman’s seed was redeemed to crush the head of the serpent and leave as an independent breeding species capable of developing immortality conferring medical science and interplanetary travel. As the original Eden was in Iraq, Saddam Hussein was in the tradition of Adam, and although the US district of Hollywood’s mass media propaganda Empire in the city of Los Angeles, west coast state of California, was called ‘Babylon’, it was Saddam Hussein, whose palace at Hillah overlooked the ruins of Babylon (c. 4000 B.C.), the capital city of the Persian Empire, ‘a woman’, according to the apocalyptic Revelation of the future envisioned by Jesus’ disciple John: ‘Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.’ (Rev: 17. 5) Jesus’ birth was Redemption for women as the slave of Empire but woman’s seed was denied by the west and so Saddam ‘crusher’ Hussein was born to defend woman’s seed from the manufacture of men and women as a single male brained creature wearing each other’s clothes and bred to kill itself in transvestite ‘TV wars’ for the west’s entertainment industry.
The Moslem peoples of the nations of Islam believe in paradise, that is, Jenna, whereas Judeo-Christianity believes it is a place from which exiles can never return, that is, Adam was told he’d die from his labors, and Eve would experience severe labor pain before her death: ‘The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth so that it might devour her child the moment it was born.’ (Rev: 12. 4)As paradise is heaven on Earth, that’s what Moslems believe in. Consequently, in Islam Jesus didn’t die but entered into paradise. Moreover, according to the Koran, there was a person called Jesus who was crucified, but it wasn’t Jesus. That’s because Moslems don’t need the illustrative material depicting the Redemption of woman’s seed. Islam means ‘accept’ and Moslem means ‘acceptance’, that is, woman’s seed is accepted, so Jesus’ death, Resurrection and Ascension to heaven in prefiguration of that of ‘woman’s seed’ is an illustration that Islam, received as the Koran in the 7th century after the death of Jesus, doesn’t need. What’s objectionable for ‘the people of the book’ is the US’ plan for a ‘gay’ heaven. As woman’s seed belongs in paradise, so US’ ‘TV’ represents war against her upon the Earth, and its science fiction, for example, the crew of the Enterprise with actor William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk in the TV show Star Trek (1965-68) presents the same scenario of the species of woman’s seed kept as a slave in bondage, so that the alien parasite has a host from which to emerge: ‘Of my friend I can only say this: of all the souls that I met on my travels, his was the most … human.’12 Kirk’s words on the death of the ‘pointy-eared alien’, that is, actor Leonard Nimoy as Vulcan science officer, Mr Spock, are those of a typical womb slaver in the second of the big screen movie franchise after the original small screen ‘TV’ series ended, Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan (1982). In parasitology, the parasite that emerges from the host to kill it is termed ‘parasitoid’. Spock’s mother was an Earth woman, but the principle is of a parasite self-producing in order to savage more wombs.
The onus in Islam is on entry into paradise after death, whereas death is what US ‘TV’ focuses the mind on, although paradise isn’t wanted because it contains woman’s seed. Consequently, HIV/AIDS is a plague launched as a ‘biological weapon’ by homosexuality in pederasty for war against paradise, because men want to be parasites in heaven and woman’s seed is heaven on Earth for the independent species of women. In simple terms, heaven is paradise writ large onto the starship Enterprise’s viewing screen in Star Trek: The Original Series, for example,so men are the parasitical virus that continues to persist after being screened.
The crushing of the pharynx, that is, the ‘voice box’ of The D.O.C., who’s the Warner Bros. ‘rap’ musician, whose voice was thereafter distorted, because his ‘Adam’s apple’ was unable to modulate in the same way as it had been doing before, was symbolic of the US’ mass media propaganda industry in L.A., California, which wants to put its words into the mouths of actors and actresses so that they say what their ‘puppet masters’ want to be heard. The Moslems of the nations of Islam wanted the voice of ‘the Big Apple’ of New York city to change, and although the World Trade Centre was a symbol of ‘rough trade’,13 which is that ‘brutality and violence’attributable to homosexuality in pederasty for war against woman’s seed, that is, the Al Qaeda terrorist attack precipitated yet another ‘gay’ warfor wombs, pederasty’s voice was challenged. God screens for the virus to be eradicated, whereas Hollywood, ‘Babylon’, wants the virus to be admired for its parasitoid nature.
In 1965 Hollywood released the movie, The Satan Bug, about a virus that had been developed as a ‘bioweapon’ that could kill everyone on Earth in a matter of months. Richard Basehart is in the role of Charles Reynolds Ainsley who intends to be the only man on Earth with all of humanity dead: ‘Nothing, nothing can stop the Satan Bug.’14 Al Qaeda, which means ‘the base’, and whose flag is the moon on black, didn’t encounter Batman, although the baseball metaphor suggests‘the caped crusader’ was expected to respond to the threat to US’ ‘gay’ heaven. Behind it all, ‘the hand of The Joker’, Batman’s ‘arch enemy’, can be but dimly perceived: ‘You ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?’15The moonlight doesn’t get any paler than the bone white baleful moon of Al Qaeda’s black flag. If the North and South Tower could be said to have resembled the two front teeth of the Warner Bros. cartoon hero, Bugs Bunny, before they were taken out, Satan got Bugs.
