Summarizing The Tat and Why I Should Now Get One
I'm not going to pretend that I know as much about the mystic ways of the universe as Tim or what his real thought processes were when going into this. I assume it had to do with my love of the spade symbol and his idea that the chariot symbol accompanied with the horse seemed quite fitting.
I used to play cards all the time with my dad when I was little. And even when he was in the mental hospital we were most at ease while playing cards. My dad has always been a big symbol person and finding what he calls "God things". Like once at the race track, where I used to go once a month from age 6-11, I found a dime on the ground. I picked it up. I turned and whirled it in no specific direction. The dime ricocheted off a seat and landed right between my dad's feet who was standing 20 rows up and 30 feet to the right. That was one of his examples of a "God thing". Well he has always hated the spades suit in the deck of cards. He thinks they are bad luck. I love the spades suit. It's the baddest of the suits. It's the hardcore kick the rest in the nuts suit. I enjoy the game of spades above all else and the jack of spades is my favorite card.
That's all I really know about spades. Now Tim is drawing lines to the history of spades and how it relates to the tarot. I did like this link
about the Knight of swords.
DIRECT, BLUNT, AUTHORITATIVE, OVERBEARING, INCISIVE, CUTTING, KNOWLEDGEABLE, OPINIONATED, LOGICAL, UNFEELING
Anyway the sword =spades, the Knight is close to the chariot card and he's on a horse. I don't know, I just totally dig the idea that someone made this with me in mind more than the actual thought process that went into it. It's kick ass looking and I can't imagie naything being better than this. It's going on now.
