ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Oh my god. It's so intense. What does it mean?
The Meaning Of Rainbows - Trailer (Yosemitebear Mountain Giant Double Rainbow) [YouTube, thanks Shane]
So the Jewish view on rainbows are two sided.
On one hand it is a warning that the world is engaging in too much violence and robbery requiring the reminder that you humans are messing up but here is a rainbow to show that there is NOT a flood coming, but clean up your act.
On the other hand the rainbow the moon and other celestial events are worthy of a special blessing and should not be stared at as they are a manifestation of the shcina(closeness of G-d).
There’s enough miracles here to blow ya brains.
And here is a beautiful song by the incomparable Sarah Vaughn – her cover of Jobim’s “Double Rainbow”:
This is the kind film meant for 3D. I would see it for sure.
I’d go see this.
It looks intense.
“In a world…”
I saw and photographed a triple rainbow in Hat Creek Valley, British Columbia back in ’90. Wish there’d been You Tube around back then to post everyone’s reactions because they were…intense.
Double Rainbow All The Way!
I’m kinda jealous of that guy’s life, or what seems to be that guy’s life. Or, at least I’d like to live where he lives. It’s super nice.
Might I also recommend DOUBLE RAINBOW SONG!! by the Gregory Brothers, the same people who bring you Auto-tune the News.
i once saw a circular rainbow. from a plane. to this day i still have flashbacks. circular rainbows are not meant to be seen by mortals.
