GH's strange clues and connections

Post by Glorious » Sat Jun 28, 2003 3:51 pm

On the Perelandra disc during the strange dialog in "Now Departing", Tracy's voice says "Will the party who lost the hand please report to the main office, Mr. Lliusion is waiting..."
If you look on the cover of Chronometree, at the base of the tree in the middle of the top platform is a HAND!!! :idea:

and here I always heard it as "...the party who lost their head..."

Guess I'll have to listen to it again (darn!!!) more closely...

That's a hand? Looks kind of like a dead eel. with... intestine problems. What are the weird orange twinkles coming from it?

The "announcer" at the end of Lex Rex mentions something about a musical of epic proportions "Behind the Great Beyond". I wonder if that is the name of the next GH album?? 8)

Theremin's a step ahead of you there...

Go to the lex rex page and topic "Title of forthcoming Glass Hammer album (or am I insane?)"

Steve has denied the rumors.

Well, actually, he hasn't flat out denied them. But it would appear that he is indicating that that was not the title. Well, see for yourself.

Rosana Azar's art was used for the covers of both "Journey of the Dunadan" and "Lex Rex"

From Perelandra, the character Lliusion's name is an illusion.
And, the character "Perelandra" went "On To Evermore."

All that background noise in Lex Rex for centurion and goodnight and such is sections from David and Goliath, says Steve. I have always wondered about that.

Has anyone tried to decode the Chronometree? on the CD, it says "Glass Hammer, Chronometree" and on the cover it says Perelandra, Perelandra Vortex, and Aliusion in sort of pseudo-Greek script. Strange. :?

Shadowlands!!! I can't wait! This was my all-time favorite movie, about C.S. Lewis and his wife. The last line of the movie clinches it.

Steve, any hints about how this will touch on C.S. Lewis? Any specific tomes?
