Yes, an upside-down five pointed star for all you guys out there that think Satan is real.
Personally I think Satan is just a PR stunt the Church launched to frighten gullible people...not to say that there aren't evil minded bastards out there believing this crap on the wrong side of the Church's teachings, including pedophiles within the Church itself, but Satan is just a myth to me...and people love killing in the name of great myths don't they?

Darren Aronofsky's first film Pi,
what about his film Black Swan?
starring Mia Wasikowska
(Alice) from Alice in Wonderland.
Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman just starred in the above picture together, as well.
Getting back to the movie Tracks though, it is the true tale of Robyn Davidson who did this trek in the 70's across the desert of WA.
|Davidson and Wasikowska.|
In earlier versions, actresses proposed for the lead role included
Australians Judy Davis and Nicole Kidman, as well as American actress Julia Roberts.
In the movie Tracks, as well as in real life,
a black dog was along for most of the trip through the desert.
A Black Dog is also used as a metaphor for depression in popular culture and this film does have a subtext of the depression the main character had throughout her journey and life.
Robyn's mother hung herself when Robyn was young and the dog theme is a very important part of the story.
seems to be a theme running through this post, don't you think?
And then for Australian viewers of the live coverage of the Oscars on channel Nine, you would have seen this ad for an Australian magazine article about the actress from Red Dog and her violent marriage.

|Kievan Rus / Kevin Rudd?|
It served as the foundation and beginning of both Russia and the Ukraine.
Today Kiev is the capital city of the Ukraine. "
|Marine charts - Black Sea - Satellite - 1920x1080 (16:9)|
The people of Rus were originally Vikings from the land of Sweden who migrated to Eastern Europe in the 800s.
They established a small kingdom under the rule of King Rurik.
The Rurik Dynasty would rule the Rus for the next 900 years.
Establishment of the Kievan State
In 880, King Oleg moved the capital of the Rus from Novgorod to Kiev.
This was the start of the Kievan Rus.
King Oleg led the Rus in many conquests including raids against Byzantium and Constantinople.
Eventually, Oleg established peace with the Byzantine Empire
and the Kievan Rus began to prosper.
The Golden Age of the Kievan Rus began with the rule of Vladimir the Great in 980 and continued through the rule of Yaroslav the Wise.
During this time the kingdom experienced prosperity, economic growth, and peace.
Vladimir the Great
Vladimir the Great ruled the Kievan Rus from 980 to 1015.
He continued the expansion of the Kievan Rus, uniting many of the Slavic states under one rule. He also converted the Rus to Christianity.
This conversion strengthened his ties to Constantinople and the head of the Eastern Orthodox Church.
Yaroslav the Wise
After Vladimir the Great died, his son Yaroslav the Wise became king.
The Kievan Rus reached their peak during his reign.
Yaroslav married many of his daughters and sons to surrounding nations in order to maintain peace and establish trade relations.
He also established a written code of laws, built a library in Kiev, and promoted education among his people.
The Kievan Rus began to decline after Yaroslav the Wise died.
In the 13th century, the Mongols invaded the land and brought an end to the united Kievan Rus.
His sister Loree, who lives in Queensland, has spent time in Russia and speaks the language fluently.
In 1991, after studying Russian, she traveled to Russia for three months and then returned to live there for several years.
She came back to Australia to help her brother with his election campaign and then went back to Russia.
She now lives in Nambour,Queensland."
Kevin Rudd clarifies details of his trip to Eastern Europe
" KEVIN Rudd has moved to clarify details of his trip to Eastern Europe amid disquiet over his perceived role as “self-appointed peace envoy” in the Crimea crisis.
Mr Rudd, who has insisted the trip is unrelated to the tensions between the nations, this morning confirmed he was in Moscow and had been invited to attend a conference in Kiev.
Mr Rudd arrived this week in Moscow, where it was reported he would talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s advisers."
