An Illustrated Guide to The Lost Symbol

Rich in world history and political power, veiled in secrecy, and rife with rituals and arcane symbols -- from art and architecture to the images that adorn our currency -- the Freemasons arose from ambiguous origins centuries ago to play a major role in drafting the initial documents of the United States, and even in constructing the intricate landscape of Washington, D.C., itself a virtual mystery by design. These puzzles lay the foundation for Dan Brown's serpentine thriller, The Lost Symbol , and also raise provocative questions. Why do some Masonic symbols remain obscured, while others are hidden in plain sight? Which presidents were the embodiments of Masonic ideals? What is the significance of the construction of the Library of Congress, Washington National Cathedral, the Washington Monument, the Capitol, and the physical layout of Washington, D.C.'s roadways and cul-de-sacs? And to what secretive end do they all lead? Now millions of curious fans can follow Robert Langdon step-by-step, and discover for themselves the answers to the absorbing conundrums posed by The Lost Symbol in this comprehensive, fully illustrated, and intricately detailed tour of the arcana of Washington, D.C. It takes readers through the enigmatic codes, captivating trivia, unfathomable riddles, intriguing records, historic maps, ciphers, and conspiracies of the phenomenal bestseller. What's more, it reveals the fascinating details of a world of unknown locales, mysticism, intrigue, and secret societies -- all of which lie in the shadow of The Lost Symbol .

Secret America DVD

They're the most iconic symbols of America, but lurking behind each one are conspiracy theories, myths, and lies. The Statue of Liberty, White House, street plan of Washington D.C., U.S. Flag, and Great Seal all hold mysterious secrets: masonic markings, coded texts, ghosts and more inhabit our most well-known national treasures. 1. Are there really Masonic markings on the map of D.C, ghosts in the White House, satanic messages on the Great Seal, and sinister origins behind Lady Liberty? 2. The Washington Monument, Mount Rushmore, the Liberty Bell, U.S. Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial all hold untold tales of intrigue. Did the Freemasons imbed codes on Washington's most famous obelisk? What's Mount Rushmore's connection to the KKK? Are Lincoln's hands sending us a secret message?

Rameau: Zoroastre

It is tempting to say William Christie and Les Arts Florissants perform Rameau's opera "Zoroastre" the exact way the composer imagined it. Indeed, there are many riches in this performance: impeccable singing, a magnificent chorus, and an orchestra that perfectly captures the opulent beauties and complexities of French Baroque. A late work, "Zoroastre" may lack the consistent brilliance of Rameau's masterpiece "Castor et Pollux," but this composition's daring formal conception, which presages the fluidity of late nineteenth century opera, richly compensates any perceived absence of structural balance. The story, centering on Zoroastre's struggle to save his beloved Amelite from the evil Abramanr, contains Masonic references. Was Rameau a Mason? Scholars cannot answer that question. True, "Zoroastre" is about the struggle between good and evil symbolized, respectively, by light and darkness, but what fascinates the listener is not the Masonic story, but Rameau's unique ability to represent archetypal dichotomies in purely musical terms by relying on musical symbolism. Thus, in Act IV, Rameau's musical representation of sinister forces directly appeals to the listener's intuition. Indeed, the sheer variety of dark tones, along with astonishing outbursts of sheer dramatic power, bespeak Rameau's expressive genius, which reveals the unfathomable essence of evil in ways that language cannot emulate. Rameau's descriptions of elevated spiritual states, symbolized by light, are even more astonishing as demonstrated by "O lumiere vive et pure," sung by Zoroastre and the chorus in Act III. Here, as well as in the "Tout se ranime," Zorastre's duet with Amelite, the musicians reach the pinnacle of their art: with faultless phrasing, breathtaking expressive intensity, and impeccable dramatic presence, the vocal soloists capture the essence of Rameau's music. The superb orchestra plays with the compellingly primal immediacy of a living voice.

Rocky Balboa

Sylvester Stallone returns to the director's chair for Rocky Balboa, the fifth sequel to the film that made him a superstar 30 years before. The movie begins with Rocky (Stallone) still mourning the death of his loyal and beloved wife, Adrian, who died three years previously after losing a battle against cancer. Rocky owns an Italian restaurant and spends his days living in his working-class Philadelphia neighborhood, visiting with his customers, and telling stories about his past. His grown son has a job as a business professional, but the relationship between the two is strained. Rocky's growing dissatisfaction leads him to attempt to purge the feelings of frustration and loss by applying for a boxing license. When the current heavyweight champion, Mason "The Line" Dixon (Antonio Tarver), needs to rehabilitate his image as a pretty boy who has never shown any real heart in the ring, his manager offers Rocky an exhibition match. This comeback allows Rocky to get his own life back on track, while also offering him the opportunity to help those around him redeem themselves and once again be a symbol of hope for the common man. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
