'Pete as Holden Caufield
Central Park - New York
© Copyright Zac Sawyer 2017

Pete loves going on trips and loves dressing up - so here we are, in New York - in Central Park - with Pete dressed up, 1950's retro style, with his red hunting cap on, posing as Holden Caufield on an icy day, (it's supposed to be just before Christmas - but really it's in February). This is a scene from 'The Catcher in the Rye'.

J.D. Salinger (January 1, 1919 – January 27, 2010) was an American writer who is known for his widely-read novel, 'The Catcher in the Rye'.
Following his early success publishing short stories and 'Catcher in the Rye', Salinger led a very private life for more than a half-century.
'The Last and Best of the Peter Pans' was probably written in the early 1940s.
The story centers on a conversation between Vincent Caulfield, (brother of  Holden Caulfield), and his mother.

Holden Caulfield (born c.1933) is the fictional teenage protagonist and narrator of the 1951 novel 'The Catcher in the Rye'. 
Holden is naive and at the same time resentful of the adult world.
One of Holden's most striking and quintessential qualities is his powerful revulsion for "phony" qualities, a catch-all term for the perceived hypocrisy that irritates Holden.
It is this cynicism that causes him to distance himself from other people, despite wanting connection as well. 
Holden is very much a character of contradiction, and admits that he often acts more like a 13-year-old than an adult.

Holden Caufield appears in Chapter 11 of 'So Long Ago So Clear' by Peter Crawford

As a New Year 'treat' Stewie, using his time machine, took Zac back to 1958 - or was it 1943 ? - and to Bali Ha'i.
The story of 'South Pacific' was based on 'Tales of the South Pacific' - a Pulitzer Prize-winning book, which is a collection of sequentially related short stories about World War II, written by James A. Michener in 1946 and published in 1947, and set on the island of Espiritu Santo, in the New Hebrides Islands.
The book was adapted by Rogers and Hammerstein as a 1949 Broadway musical, and as a film, released in 1958.
Of course, Bloody Mary will want Zac to marry Liat  - which of course he can't - because the children would be half Tonkinese !
(this is the problem with time travel - you get caught in a particular 'time line')
And Stewie's time machine is just visible in the background.

'Siegfried (Zac) Forges Nothung'


'Siegfried' is the third of the four operas that constitute 'Der Ring des Nibelungen' (The Ring of the Nibelung), by Richard Wagner.It received its premiere at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus on 16 August 1876, as part of the first complete performance of 'The Ring'.
This part of the opera is primarily inspired by the story of the legendary hero Sigurd in Norse mythology.Nothung was the sword left by Wotan in the trunk of the tree that was the center-piece of Hunding's hut. Only Siegmund, Siegfried's father, could draw it out. The sword is shattered when Siegmund uses it to strike Wotan's spear. The shattered pieces go with baby Siegfried. Mime, who looks after Siegfried from a baby unsuccessfully attempts the re-forge the shattered pieces. Since Mime, the Nibelung, was unable to forge Nothung, Siegfried decides to do it himself.He succeeds by shredding the metal, melting it, and casting it anew. In the meantime, Mime brews a poisoned drink to offer Siegfried after the youth has defeated the dragon. After he finishes forging the sword, Siegfried demonstrates its strength by chopping the anvil in half with it. 
adapted from a scene in Fritz Lang's film 'Nibelungen'

'Götterdämmerung' (Twilight of the Gods) is the last in Richard Wagner's cycle of four operas titled 'Der Ring des Nibelungen' (The Ring of the Nibelung).
Wotan's ravens fly up distracting Siegfried, and Hagen stabs him in the back with his spear.The others look on in horror, and Hagen explains in three words ("Meineid rächt sich!" – "Perjury avenges itself") that since Siegfried admitted loving Brünnhilde, the oath he swore on Hagen's spear was obviously false, therefore it was Hagen's duty to kill him with it.

'O sink hernieder Nacht der Liebe'

Tristan und Isolde
The lovers, at last alone and freed from the constraints of courtly life, express their passion for each other. Tristan decries the realm of daylight which is false, unreal, and keeps them apart. It is only in night, he claims, that they can truly be together and only in the long night of death can they be eternally united ("O sink' hernieder, Nacht der Liebe"). During their long night of love, Brangäne calls a warning several times that the night is ending ("Einsam wachend in der Nacht"), but her cries fall upon deaf ears.
'O sink hernieder,
Nacht der Liebe,
gib Vergessen,
dass ich lebe;
nimm mich auf
in deinen Schoss,
löse von
der Welt mich los !'

Pete as Puck

'MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM'
Act V Scene I

If we shadows have offended, 
Think but this and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear. And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearn'd luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long.
Else the Puck a liar call.
So good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

Die Gasse
The Alleyway to Inwood Park


© Copyright Zac Sawyer 2014
Towards the end of the winter of 1952, Peter became frightened of the owls. Now there were owls in the large oak trees in Inwood Park - trees that could be seen from Peter's bedroom. But Peter was convinced that the owls were flying from the park and perching on the window-sill of his bedroom.


Blick aus dem Schlafzimmerfenster

© Copyright Zac Sawyer 2014
Despite reassurances from his mother Jane, Peter remained convinced of the presence of these owls at his window, and so he was allowed a night-light on the chest of draws in his room. Gradually Peter seemed to be less alarmed at the prospect of going to bed, but in reality he had just come to accept that his parents were unable to protect him from these nocturnal visitors, and so his experiences of the night became a secret, only known to him. 
Schlafzimmer in der Nacht Besucher

© Copyright Zac Sawyer 2014
As the nights passed the owls seemed to be able to get through the window and perch on the table standing under the window. It was then that Peter realized that they were not birds but small 'people', about the same size as he was, but with big heads and very big eyes, and it must have been the eyes that had made him think initially that they were owls – or perhaps they had disguised themselves as owls.These little people were extremely thin and in the dim glow of the night-light appeared to be greyish in colour.At first they just sat and stood around, looking at Peter with their huge, dark eyes. Later they started to play and dance around in a strangely stiff, awkward manner.
Die die Besucher in Hounslow

© Copyright Zac Sawyer 2014
Initially Peter was terrified, but as the nights passed he realized that the visitors meant him no harm. 

Eventually Peter would sit on the edge of his bed and watch the little guys scampering about. Then he would get tired of their antics, get into bed a go to sleep.

Interestingly Peter was never awake when the visitors left. 

After some weeks of simply playing about in Peter's bedroom, the visitors finally enticed Peter from sitting on the bed to sitting on the table by the window. 

The next step was to get him to sit on the window-sill.

Peter was then encouraged to get onto a strange metal frame floating outside the bedroom window.

Once safely on this frame, and accompanied by a couple of the visitors, Peter would be taken up into the starry sky, on a breathtaking and exhilarating journey. 

These journeys had a profound effect on Peter, giving him a lasting love of the night sky and the stars. 

Der Leitfaden

© Copyright Zac Sawyer 2014
There was more to these trips, however, than just having a sight-seeing tour of the starry heavens.The trips always ended in a featureless, grey room - a grey room that would come to haunt Peter much later in his life. There Peter would meet a tall, blond haired young man, whom Peter took to be a teacher or a scientist.Peter would have long conversations with this person, although after these experiences he could never remember what these conversations were about.While talking to this young man, Peter was always aware of a sinister looking robot standing in the corner of the room. After Peter's meeting with the tall young man, the small, grey entities would take Peter back to the metal frame, which would then gently ferry him back through the starlit sky to his bedroom window.Peter would then return to bed, leaving the little grey guys to caper around by the bed until he fell asleep. If we accept Peter's memories as genuine, then he must be classed as an 'abductee' - one of the first of that ever growing band of individuals who claim to have been contacted by alien entities, and spirited away to some extraterrestrial environment.

'TO THE FEARLESS BOY'
Where have those days gone ?
The days of long ago.
The days of endless summer,
Half real - and half a dream.
   
Of Indians stalking 'cross the plain.
Of deserts swept by sand-filled winds,
Of endless tracts of star-filled space,
And alien foes as yet unseen.
   
Of 'Tizer' drunk in secret 'camps',
And 'sherbert-dabs' and sticky gum,
Of 'penny caps', and cowboy hats
And sweet, quick-melting, soft ice-cream.
   
Melted away in endless years,
Those dreams dissolve in adult's dawning.
Yet still, in the stillness of the night,
Those sweet, young dreams return.
   
And for those, who still can dream,
That fierce, bold child shall never die,
And in those tracts of star-filled space,
The boyish grin, once more is born,
   
And smiles, forever, on

'Boy on a Dolphin'
Boy on a Dolphin is a 1957 20th Century Fox film set in Greece and shot in CinemaScope. It was directed by Jean Negulesco from a screenplay based on the novel by David Divine. The film is noteworthy as Sophia Loren's English language debut. Much of the film was shot on location on the Greek Saronic Islands, notably Hydra. Establishing shots of Athens, Rhodes and Delos add to the vérité. One scene utilizes the Eastern Orthodox monastery complex at Metéora.

'Boy on a Dolphin'

Boy on a Dolphin was shot in CinemaScope, and set on the island of Hydra and in Athens. It was directed by Jean Negulesco.

Boy on a Dolphin

There's a tale that they tell of a dolphin
And a boy made of gold.
With the shells and the pearls in the deep,
He has lain many years fast asleep;
What they tell of the Boy on A Dolphin,
Who can say if it's true.
Should he rise from the depths of the ocean,
Any wish that you wish will come true.
You say he's only a statue,
And what can a statue achieve.
And yet while I'm gazing at you,
My heart tells my head to believe.
If the boy whom the Gods have enchanted,
Should arise from the sea,
And the wish of my heart could be granted,
I would wish that you loved only me.

Pete loves dolphins (and also squirrels).

Little Peter (on his little trike - as usual) and Flamer Spry on the Rogue Planet Phantos - from the Eagle comic serial 'The Rogue Planet' - originally illustrated by Frank HampsonChristopher 'Flamer' Spry was supposedly based on the artist's son, Peter Hampson, but bears no resemblance to him.'Flamer' was what Frank called a 'mind drawing'.Unlike Commander Lex O'Mally, who was also drawn from imagination, and was very realistily and convincingly represented, 'Flamer' was far less successful -So here is 'Flamer', as he really was (or should we say is - as he is still 14, and on trips in space with Colonel Dan) - and we know this to be correct because 'Little Peter' was with 'Flamer' during Operation Crypt.
