On Why Music Matters in Macross: Past, Present & Future

After catching the livestream of Macross Delta Tactical Sound Unit—1st LIVE in Zepp—Walküre Attack! last month, I was curious. How has the music of this fond anime franchise fared over the years? Mari Iijima defined everything that is the sound of the 90s series, and maintained it! The talents who would take over in the sequels adapted to the times and generally honour this singer’s original legacy. From Sharon Apple to Sheryl Nome, the sound has changed. It sometimes transcend pop and become something that we can equate to Lady Gaga’s shows in our world.

This concert shows why music is important to this franchise’s success. The nature of these performances plays on a musical theory I believe is at the core of the series. Boethius is a Roman philosopher who once said music can be broken up to three components. They are musica mundana (a universal appeal), musica humana (the internal sound heard by the human body) and musica quae (the harmonies projected by singers and instrumentalists).

Expanding Upon Why We Want to Believe Have “Ghosts in a Bottle”

Searching for Sasquatch and things that go bump in the night in the  Southern Interior – Victoria NewsBy Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

Peter Renn (pictured right with Jason Hewlett) of the Canadian Paranormal Foundation has his doubts about whether haunted objects are truly that in We Want to Believe’s latest webisode, “Haunted Objects.” It’s a start at examining the validity of whether energy can be transferred into certain objects and persist. Just when people thought Willy’s Wonderland was disturbing, that’s just Die Hard given a supernatural fiction spin.

This co-founder doesn’t believe that everything can contain a spirit. The little pokes at what other famous paranormal celeberities do–the Warren’s Occult Museum, Zaffis Museum of the Paranormal and Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum–was light as he didn’t want to stir a hornet’s nest. But I also see him having difficulty being accepted if ever invited to a pow-wow from any indigenous tribe since their traditional beliefs won’t jive with his. 

In my studies of folklore and ancient cultures, Shintoism and Native American animism considers the possibility that everything contains a ‘soul’ of sorts. Be it an Elemental or just a transient force inhabiting that white stone by the river, there’s a lot to be said in where spirituality and occult theory crosses over.

The second episode of The Haunted Village is here and it fills in the details I’ve mentioned in my first article. Barbara Roden, Mayor of Ashcroft, British Columbia, sums it up with even more information and those reminders of old times are well represented in all the heritage buildings that still stand. One spirit who regularly manifests is dubbed ‘The Dark Haired Man.’ He alerts people to his presence by turning on the water taps, and it’s up to Peter Renn, Jason Hewlett and crew to try and find him.
