I just saw "Clash of the Titans" last week (the earlier one that came out in 1981) It was Pretty good actually and not at all cheesy. Well, I was just struck with that era..couldn't help think about where I was..how they played their part in the sunshine that was then.. back in time, but gone now.. Funny, with a little nostalgia, you just get a glimpse of this mystery, time. Ha, I loved it!
Well Harry Hamlin played Perseus along with Andromeda played by Judi Bowker. The odd thing was, I couldn't believe how much Perseus looked like Mick Jagger!! (lol) I didn't say anything, but about half way through, my other half (who never gave them any mind) says.."you know, he looks just like that musician"! (Clicking the H.H. link takes you to a trailer (found more similarity than in the photo)
Above, a celebration with some theatrics in regard to the release of an album back then.
I'll spare you the most recent theatrics (as you probably know this crew is still carrying on after five decades)- Are we only surprised viewing these antics while younger? Or, does one think perhaps, they might not go that far?
One thought I had in regard to youth..might be the belief it has a handle on time (powerful too I might add)...when it becomes obvious that's not the case..it's still pretty hard to let go? What do you think?
My aim is to carry this theme (Perseus with the head of Medusa)- over to the next post, pulling together some of this past weekends Random Musings..trying my best to avoid a longish post?
"It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption."
1 Co 1:30
For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified...so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. 1 Co 2:2-5
~ as it may be just as powerful (in a hypnotic sense)
and equally hard to trust as it is to let go of youth? developing..
