Rumors and Random Amusement

Rumors first: When I was younger I spent an evening or two at the Melody Bar in New Brunswick. I wasn't a regular, but I'm attached to many people who were. Today, I heard a rumor about a Melody Bar Redux, featuring a "certain bald DJ personality".

Next, random amusements. I like an internet quiz as much as the next gal, so I went for the "Which Tarot Card are You?" quiz. I went in knowing that I have one orange cat and one black one. Apparently, the quiz knew that as well:

You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
Check Spelling
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.
