    Emerald has a fine voice, good song, very good.

    A lot of dependency on naivety here as a means to feel involved in any number of psychological shapes. Puss was saying ‘much of this is unnecessary’ language manipulation to form a personal consensus in the face of true fear. She or he deserves a saucer of milk for a distinct contribution. Danger always in trying to understand horror by using intelligence and emotional empathy to not be afraid. All the screen characters mentioned are eventual robotic slaves to sexuality and violence. Hollywood fodder. No conscience, echoes of mind control, Hollywood harvesting, planting and fertilising. Lying is at the heart of all complexities; once in command it is the match that lights the ‘inferno’.
