We all have a monster within. But when you get a free gift with it...wahey!

I think we all have different sides to our personality. We all have something which could be:
a) A passionate fiery beast.
b) A frightening monster that, if let out, would eat us all alive
c) The exhibitionist
d) The roaring anger
e) The all conuming desire to create
f) That which defies everything - our ID! Oh Lordi!
g) The pain

You're very brave to let it sit in front of you. I always let mine stay a few steps behind. 'Who is the third that walks beside me?'

I love the innocence of the face behind. But the contrast between that and the beast is always wunderbar.

Emu was the first thing I ever remember being obsessed with - age 6, it was. Certainly, Emu was Hyde to Rod Hull's Dr. J. At 6, there's no way I could've assimilated the layers of meaning Emu can (I say does) represent; but I really do think I was drawn to it for all the right reasons! That sublimated violence/will/volition - silence, that arching beak, giving fair warning of attack; all of it RH's arm nonetheless. Emu, though, was essentially levelheaded. He only got annoyed when pushed; but then, when pushed, he could and did deal with the situation. I love that idea: nonpreemptive, but getting the last word. Another hero is Bugs Bunny; for the same reason. He just wants to sit in his hole, chomping on his carrot. But someone keeps drilling above, etc. So, eventually, he has to act; saying 'of course you know, this means war'. For sure, I think of myself in the same way!

I think, to a certain extent, we always want to try and keep the 'emu' part of us in front. I'd love to sit in a hole sometimes. I think you're right...Emu only acted when he was provoked. But, he was always poised...ready...with those eyes. Very Freudian too - that long neck, the dentata beak. Allegory for female power perhaps? Or am I talking rubbish?

I think this person is a Libran. I can see it in the face. Perhaps he has the same birthday as me!

Librans like balance and you balance with the monster.

But...when the balance is tipped...watch out!

Yes, Libran. Yes, when balance is tipped or interferred with watch out is right! I saw a very moving doc about RH & Emu last week. A fascinating man. Big 'womaniser'; like Sid James - both being, well, not the best looking people, but successful nonethelsss. Hull hated Emu by the end; he wanted to be taken seriously; not just as an apendage to Emu. Everyone greeted him with 'where's Emu?'. That must have been waring after a while. But Emu was/is serious enough, I think. A very interesting phenomenon; full of possible meanings. Yes, and what sex was Emu? Good point. If female, one set of possible meanings ensues; if male, another ensues. Weird weird territory.

I think all comedy is tinged with sadness...I think I've mentioned this before. Rod committed suicide I think.
