The Muses' Periodic Features

Electricka and her Muses publish a series of features called Periodic Features. They're periodic because they change every day or week, depending on the feature. They're a lot like the features you see in newspapers everyday or in the Sunday supplement—your horoscope, the crossword, today's weather, an editorial, movie listings, lottery results, the gossip column, advice to the lovelorn—except that they're about subjects taken from the arts.

Periodic features are about personalities, anecdotes, graphic symbols, portmanteau words, musical instruments, quotations, did-you-know?, and sayings. There are more and the list is growing all the time.

The Muses' periodic features are interesting, amusing, informative, enjoyable, and eye opening. They may even surprise you.

Check in with The Muses every day or every week to see fresh, new tidbits about the arts. Here's how:

On the FEATURES menu you'll find at the top of most pages, select DAILY FEATURES or WEEKLY FEATURES and a list of daily or weekly features will fly out. Pick any one and click to visit the feature.

Once you're at any periodic feature, can visit any other periodic feature by picking it from the Periodic Features menu box at the right side of the page.

Mythology Understanding Myth & Mythology Open

The true significance of myth and mythology is commonly overlooked. Many people see myths as little more than childhood amusements not worthy of serious study, like a fairy tale or a nursery rhyme; they see mythology—the study and science of myth—as an obvious and simplistic undertaking.

Here, The Muse Of Mythology will attempt to correct these misappraisals, and a lot more.

Mythology The Essential Nature Of Myth Open

Here, The Muse Of Mythology explores the characteristics and qualities that make myths myths.

All myths adhere to a set of essential, defining characteristics that they hold in common with other myths. Every myth must exhibit these defining characteristics in order to earn the right to be called by that name. In this feature, The Muse Of Mythology explores myth with the objective of unearthing these defining characteristics--of elucidating and explaining them in such a way that virtually anyone who joins The Muse on this exploration will be able to recognize a myth when he see one.
