God vs Devil

Monday, 16 July 2007

I just discovered that there is a beautiful site dedicated to ambigrams: nagfa.blogspot.com. It is run by a man from Singapore, Nagfa, who makes amazing ambigrams himself. Since a few months he organises a monthly competition, where people can send in ambigrams of their own makings of a word chosen for the occasion. The word for May was Sharkattack. I was to late for the competition, but I I was so inspired by the ambigrams that people had send in, that I made one anyway.
It is a so called oscilation, which means that you can read two words in it without turning the word upside down.
This month the word is not a word but a theme: Famous couples. I choose God & the Devil.
Here is a fragment from the beautiful audio version of Conversations with God, written by Neale Donald Walsh.

.
I collect songs about God and the Devil. Songs about God are easy to find but rarely interesting. As it should be the situation with songs about the Devil is the other way around: hard to find, but always interesting.
I have a compilation of songs about the Devil that Fake Booy made. Peter Pontiac made an illustration for the cover. He has done several other drawings of the Devil. I will try to find one in my archive. (It is actually a small shoe box that must be somewhere in a the cupboard beneath our stairs, but I prefer to use the word archive.)
For today’s Soundtrack I choose a song by Eugene Fox, Sinner’s dream. The problem with this recording is that I only have it on a CD where somebody used an MP3. When I make an MP3 of this recording again the soundquality gets pretty poor. But you have to do with it anyway, because it is my favourite Devil-song.

.
And here is Al Pacino as the Devil in the movie Devil’s advocate:

And then the Lord he called for one more card
But he drew the diamond eight
And the Devil said to the son of God
I believe you’ve got it straight
So deal me one for the time has come
To see who’ll be the king of this place
But as he spoke from beneath his cloak
He slipped another ace

I heard a song a long time ago about god vs. the devil, and I believe the context was a boxing match. Any clues?
