- Eurystheus, for his tenth labor, gave Heracles the task
of bringing back the cattle, which belonged to the monster Geryon. This
involved killing the sentinels who watched over the cattle and their master,
then, driving the herd over land and sea back to Greece single handed,
which made this a very precarious adventure. This monstrous beast was the
son of Chrysaor, which makes him nephew of the Gorgon, Medusa. Geryon had
three bodies, six arms, six legs and three heads and his appearance was
that of a warrior. He lived on Erytheia, a mythical island far to the west,
Geryon was the owner of huge herds of cattle, and they were protected by
the herdsman Eurythion and the two-headed watch-dog Orthrus.
- MTV has just launched their new logo for their little
brother channel MTV2 and have been aggressively promoting it since the
last Superbowl. I know that malicious companies like to show their true
intentions through symbolic logos. I have to hand it to to people behind
the scenes at MTV; they must really think that nobody knows what they are
really up to. Let's just take the new logo their using "a two-headed
dog?" Their just seemed something too evil about that. I knew that
the Cerberus guarded the gates of Hades, but that one had three heads.
I searched further and found the story posted above and it makes total
sense now. MTV is the Orthrus and is guarding the captive cattle, "the
dazed hive-mentality youth of today." The conditioning has been there
for a long time and now they are just getting an extra laugh rubbing in
our face in plain view. We know now that MTV is the cattle herder, but
what is the real monster that it's working for?
