(5 Caban (Earth) / 10 K'ank'in - 57/260 - 184.108.40.206.17)
Russian-born composer of ballets, including The Rite of Spring (1913), symphonies, operas, such as The Rake's Progress (1951), and other works. He is considered one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century.
-jîn´-), Vaslav or Waslaw
Russian-born dancer and choreographer noted for his leading roles with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in Paris and for his choreography of The Rites of Spring (1913) and other ballets.
Ballet The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du Printemps) 6/13 at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris, with Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russe, choreography by Waslaw Nijinsky, music by Igor Stravinsky. Outraged audiences stage violent demonstrations at Stravinsky's wild dissonances and tumultuous rhythms which begin a new epoch in music.
Stravinsky, Igor (Fedorovich)
Stravinsky, Igor (Fedorovich),
1882-1971, Russian-American composer, widely considered the greatest and
most versatile composer of the 20th cent. In Russia he was a student of
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV. His first strikingly original compositions, The Firebird
(1910) and Petrouchka (1911), were written for DIAGHILEV's Ballets Russes.
In the ballet The Rite of Spring (1913), a masterpiece of modern music,
Stravinsky used radically irregular RHYTHMS and harsh dissonances. He later
employed an austere, neoclassical style, as in The Soldier's Tale (1918)
and Oedipus Rex (1927).

11pm - on.
The actual date (near March 21 in the northern hemisphere) when night and day are nearly the same length and Sun crosses the celestial equator (i.e., Declination 0) moving northward. In the southern hemisphere, the vernal equinox corresponds to the center of the Sun crossing the Celestial Equator moving southward and occurs on the date of the northern Autumnal Equinox. The vernal equinox marks the first day of the Season of Spring. The Right Ascension at the vernal equinox originally was in the constellation Aries and the point of crossing was known as the First Point in Aries (now actually in Pisces because of Precession ).
"The catastrophic event called
the first Ragnar??k, the "first destruction of Aser", the shifting of earth's
axis of rotation initiating cycles we call "seasons", destroyed virtually
all life from the north pole southward, and from the south pole northward,
to the equatorial band around the earth.
Throughout Paradiset and before the Ragnar??k which marked the beginning of Ice Time, Aser, inside Odenma, could kela Alphernas Beten, the Sound System, and speak and kela both Rot (also called As) and Van. Vaner, living in the many ringlands being established outside of Odenma, would kela and speak only Van. The original and living Rot "instructions" for populating the Earth's ho man plan et, the continuing flow of information regarding true correct care and maintenance of what we today call our "biosphere" and "ecosystem", contained in the Rot Sound System, were no longer available to Vaner. Programs created in Hel by Rot-speaking As pipol were no longer brought out to play for Vaner in rastis. When they became disconnected from Aser, who had served as the head of the race - keeping the instructions alive for the benefit of all-Vaner, for this and other reasons concerning the s per ma system, lost their connection with the governing overpower of Oden which guided the human family through Aser , via the breeding and information system.
Just as the brain must be fully connnected to a healthy body to assure it the vitality of life, so Vaner required the instruction of Aser in order to function at their highest potential and as intended according to the planet. Now under Altlandis, the single breeding and information system holding one human family together in a unit having five branches or et, no longer existed." - from the Ior Bock Saga at http://www-math.cudenver.edu/~jweber/circus/bocktext.html
Directions - print this out.
The party is the best place
I've been to in NYC. You must check it out. Be patient if it takes a while
for their generator to get running. It is on the northern tip of Manhattan,
on the east corner where the GW Bridge and he Triborough merge. Once you're
on 181st and Amsterdam it is a 5 minute walk. Don't get confused with these
simple directions. Follow them literally. Take
the subway 1 or 9 to 181st. & St. Nichols. Walk east. Go to the southeast corner of 181st and Amsterdam. Stand there. Look east. See the little paved pedestrian paved path that runs next to the road on the south side, parallel to the highway that the cars are on? Walk east on it; after about 100 yards it starts dipping south, The little road gently slopes down into the park, down some stairs, goes under an arch, splits in two (take the right path) and down more stairs and continues down down down until you hear music. It's creepy getting there but there are a lot of good people around %-)> (that's a stoned Israeli with a beard) Bring blankets cigarettes and 5HTP and water.
