What's up with the evil avatars? Is Oskaar's heart black? Is there pain in his life ... let me guess ... it was a woman. Let it out Oskaar! You'll feel better!

OSKAAR: "Hi Everyone, my name is Oskaar . . . . and I'm a redhead-A-holic! "

EVERYONE: "HI OSKAAR!:

It's the redheaded women that pass through my life. They will drive even the greatest of men to evil; lesser men haven't a chance in these torrid, tempestuous exhilarating and exhausting affairs.

I guess some of the most profound influences on me are the works of John William Waterhouse who had a talent for painting very lithe, willowy women and nymphs, dryads, hamadryads, etc.

Here's a link to one of his works I have hanging in my bedroom:

http://www.johnwilliamwaterhouse.com/paintings/enlarge.aspx?pid=1385&path=waterhouse/waterhouse50

I have several of his paintings hanging in my house, which of course are all replicas since his stuff sells at auction for several million a pop.

There you have it. Evil is as evil does. So my life of crime is all due to redheads!

Cheers,

Oskaar

Oy ! Go easy on the redheads of the world... It's not our fault that some of you men and women incite us to greater and more creative evil. It's not that were vindictive per say, we may just have an exagerated sence of "fair play" ;)

As a redhead of the male gender, I have to say that I really like that explanation!

Hey DD!

Oh puh-LEEEEEEEEEZE! light, tiki torch?

We're talking big ole red bonfire that burns away everything in it's path, wants to meet your parents, wants to go to, gulp, "Bridges of Madison County" (BTW I'll never forgive Clint Eastwood for that one!) and never forgets for one short second that you had one too many glasses of mead, and paid just a "little too much" attention to the next door neighbor's daughter who was home from college on spring break.

Oh . . . sorry . . . was that out loud :o

Right-oh . . . and now for something completely different! . . .

Was ist los? Certainly a difficult analysis . . . both avatars seem to represent varying aspects of the same Shadow self. As for the red headed nymphs -- classic patterns of approach avoidance compounded by a compulsion to repeat the trauma.

I'd suggest inviting the next prospective companion to your abode, presenting her with a choice of meads and see which one she picks. Dry mead? A subtle personality, especially if the mead has an exotic varietal honey or two. Melomel? Average tastes, probably likes sweet wines too.

You get the idea. Good luck!

Hey Doc,

I keep having this dream where I'm dressed in a bright golden robe and I'm standing on top of a stepped pyramid, and there are thousands of beautiful naked women bowing to me and throwing pickles at me.

Any ideas?? Am I the only one who has this dream?

Then right after that I have another dream about taking a trip on a train and we just seem to keep going into and out of tunnels. What's up with that?

Finally, I have this one where there is a big party and everyone is having a really good time until a girl runs in dressed in a catholic school girl outfit and she is being chased by a dwarf who is beating her about the head and shoulders with a flounder and screaming obscenites at her in Hungarian. They run though the party and then everyone incinerates and in their places are large white turkies that are unable to walk under their own weight. Oh yeah, one last thing, Oprah Winfry is singing Frank Zappa's "I'm the Slime" dressed in a Marty Feldman mask with a pair of cartoon clown shoes on.

Hey Oskaar, I'm a dream interpreter!


I keep having this dream where I'm dressed in a bright golden robe and I'm standing on top of a stepped pyramid, and there are thousands of beautiful naked women bowing to me and throwing pickles at me.

This may have something to do with your religious/spiritual side. Or it may refer to your constant desire for attention (on the pedestal). Probably the later. ;) Food represents love and affection, and you want more of that thrown at you! Odly enough, this may not have anything to do with sex. Women sometimes represent motherly nurturing and that matches the meaning of food.


Then right after that I have another dream about taking a trip on a train and we just seem to keep going into and out of tunnels. What's up with that?

Vehicles represent travel through life, while a train represents a fixed travel, in other words, you are trying to get somewhere in life and this refers to your experiences trying to get there in general. You keep repeating the same place, so you probably feel like your goals have been halted and that you are experiencing stages in your life that you feel you should be past already. This would explain why you have so much time on gotmead lately. ;) ;D

You're making this up. At least the second part anyway.

Dream interpretation is my other hobby and I've done hundreds of these interpretations. ;)

Hey Oskaar, if those are the dreams you are having maybe we could swap a couple of bottles of brew? Heh, and you said you didn't know what was in that Mexican honey...it's peyote man!

Personally..... I think Oskaar's Train dream is highly indicitive of strong reproductive tendancies.... perhaps.... stamina... and... uh... ability are blended in.

Am I close :D

Well, yes, that was certainly self evident, however, the free loose associations during the imaginative excursion were *most* interesting.

Perhaps too much nutmeg in a methglyn?

Hmmm...'analization'?!?! I am sure Freud would have something to say about that. Maybe I just misunderstand this hobby and should re-read Ken's book. I seem to have missed that chapter.

For you to get enough myristicin out of the nutmeg to mess you up into your mead, you'd have to use three to four whole nutmegs, freshly ground, per glass.

Needless to say, that'd be a pretty.. ur.. rasty mead :o)

Besides, I think the mind tends to come up with more interesting things sober than on empathogens.

Thank you for the welcome. Yes, I'm a meadmaker but only recently. The first batch, a traditional mead, went poorly. It struggled and struggled for a year. A melomel went much better. The new mead book, "The Compleat Meadmaker," has been very helpful.

Analyzing the bad boys -- my conclusion is that they are all meshugeh ahf toit, every one of them (am I supposed to click the faces when I say things like this?).

Oh no, Oskaar, not all psychiatrists or psychologists accept the Freudian metapsychology as he first formulated it. It's as relevant to modern day practice as Darwinian "survival of the fittest" is to contemporary biology. It's history, I suppose, so everyone is required to learn it.

Nonetheless, Freud, like the other early psychoanalysts, was a creative genius. Here is a chochmeh, one reads "between the lines," so to speak, when going through his material, in order to realize its value.

Here is a secret, to be told in only a whisper! I have to confess to a secret admiration for C. G. Jung's writings . . .

So thankful I'm retired! The managed care dybbuks would never have that!

Oskaar
01-13-2005, 12:48 PM
Yup, my limited exposure to Freud and Jung taught me that I needed to learn a lot more about both in order to comment on one. Put me up a little closer to modern day. Skinner, now there's a guy you gotta admire, LOL.

I did like Maslow and Piaget from what I read and understand of their work. I see my therapist about two or three times a week. He's very good at helping me resolve simple issues very quickly, and is always very upbeat and willing to explore new territories with me. There are times when I have problems making a decision and take action on it so he'll just usually let me work through it myself.

The best thing about it is that I only have to pay for the wine when I visit the office. Just yesterday he helped me decide between a Dry Creek Zinfandel and a Lodi Zinfandel! I went with the Lodi Zin because it went better with my cigar last time.

Cheers,

Oskaar

Surely you must be speaking of the Lodi Cosentino Zinfandel Cigar. If you were truly smoking a cigar along with good wine, well, a broch tzu dir!

Monte Cristo #2 from Havana along with the Cigar Zin.

Cosentino makes two excellent Zinfandels, The Zin, and Cigar Zin. Both have won gold at the OC Fair, and the Reserve Cabernet is usually phenomenal. I get my grapes from one of the vinyards that supply grapes for his zins.

Well, Big Rock McNally's Irish style ale has been recomended as an ideal pairing with Monte Cristo #2, so I must concur. Still, I shudder at the thought of fine wine and cigars, together.

Actually Cigar Zin is a "port style" Zinfandel. Very fruit forward with, deep ripe black fruit that's jammy, chewy, with some nice spice, blackberry, chocolate and espresso flavors, plus a nice wide stripe of vanilla right down the center. A perfect pairing with a good Cuban.

Cheers,
