Anne Hathaway, or Anne Hathor-way?

The goddess Hathor
wearing her headdress,
a pair of cow horns
a sun disk.
Hathaway as Catwoman
Hathor was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt
Hathor was worshiped by Royalty and common people alike in whose tombs she is depicted as 
"Mistress of the West" welcoming the dead into the next life.
Hathor is often  associated with Bast.
Anne Hathaway
The Ancient Greeks identified Hathor with the goddess Aphrodite and the Romans as Venus.
Hathor is also linked with the goddess Bat with whom she later supplanted.
Bat woman?
Bat was a cow goddess in Egyptian mythology depicted as a human face with cow ears and horns
By the time of the Middle Kingdom, her identity and attributes were subsumed within the goddess Hathor.
After midnight?
In the second season of the HBO series True Blood, a statue similar to Naqada depictions of Bat is used as a sacred depiction of Dionysus for the maenad Maryann Forrester's orgiastic cult.
 Sam Merlotte's attraction to the statue upon first meeting Maryann causes her to see him as the perfect sacrifice for her ritual to bring Dionysus to life, a major driving force for the season's plot.
Anne voiced Red Puckett
in "Hoodwinked"
 Havoc is about teenagers whose exposure to 
hip hop culture inspires them to imitate the gangster lifestyle.

The events of The Scorpion King take place 5,000 years before those in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, and reveal Mathayus' origins and his rise to power as the Scorpion King. The name itself is a reference to a real king of the protodynastic period of 
The Scorpion God is a novella by William Golding, published in a collection of the same name, along with Clonk Clonk (1971) and Envoy Extraordinary (1956).
The three novellas all explore themes about early societies which have characteristics that echo down the years to our own time. 
The Scorpion God is set in Ancient Egypt in pre-Pharaonic times and involves three main characters: "Great House", his son, and "The Liar". It is set in the court of a failing ruler "Great House" (i.e. Pharaoh), who is treated as a living god, responsible for ensuring that the sky is held up and that the River Nile floods every year to bring water for the crops.
Great House's young son is going blind and does not want to succeed his father, nor does he want to marry his older sister as he is expected to do. "The Liar" – the ruler's favourite – is a kind of court jester employed to tell Great House incredible (but in fact largely true) stories about the world outside the small piece of the Nile valley that they call home, and regard as the whole world.
"The Liar" is a renegade of foreign origin who has knowledge of the world far beyond any of the Nile valley dwellers. He is threatened with being made a human sacrifice to accompany his master in death, but with his fighting skills he eventually overthrows the old king and makes himself ruler in his place. The end of the story hints that it is he who will become the semi-legendary first Pharaoh of a united Egypt.
The Egyptian goddess Serket.
She is often depicted
as a woman with
a scorpion
gracing her crown
As the guard of one of the canopic jars and a protector, Serket gained a strong association with Aset (Isis), Nebet Het (Nephthys), and Neith who also performed similar functions. 
Eventually, later in Egyptian history that spanned thousands of years and whose pantheon evolved toward a merger of many deities, Serket began to be identified with Isis, sharing imagery and parentage, until finally, Serket became said to be merely an aspect of Isis, whose cult had become very dominant.
Hathor was originally worshipped in the form of a cow, sometimes as a cow with stars on her.
Later she is represented as a woman with the head of a cow, and finally with a human head, the face broad and placid, sometimes she is depicted with the ears or horns of a cow
She is also shown with a head-dress resembling a pair of horns with the moon-disk between them. 
Sometimes she is met with in the form of a cow standing in a boat, surrounded by tall papyrus reeds. 
As the "Mistress of the Necropolis" she is shown as the head of a cow protruding from a mountainside.
In this case she wears a menat necklace, which is a symbol of rebirth.
"Holy cow, Batman! But I feel it all ties
 into this lady below - Somehow?"

  1. Wow, Daz. Impressive. You're onto something here.

  2. yep the incident is intimately connected to hathor/isis/bast/serket ie babylon

    americans live in babylon, whose culture extends througout the West, and dominates other nations

    these nations belong to the "mistress of the west" that you mention, the supremacy of feminism in america/the west is the ideopolitical manifestation of this ownership

    solar rites like these are always blood-sacrificial, whether ancient or modern (catal huyuk is full of this hathoric symbolism, signifying the matriarchal nature of the paleolithic, early neolithic, and present)

    the most recent incident occured in aurora, "goddess of the dawn" (ie, of the New Age)

    the rite-schema was scapegoat/sacrificial

    v thoughtful piece

  3. Great bit of research. Oh, and Shakespeare's Anne Hathaway died when she was 67.

  4. Hey Darren, since you and I seem to be the ones paying closer attention to the Shakespeare connection. I just literally stumbled upon another linking element:

    In the old TV series, Bruce Wayne used a special button to enter the batcave --a button hidden in a Shakespeare bust.
