"LOA" House?
« on: July 21, 2010, 09:27:50 AM »
What, pray tell, is a LOA House?  I've done some searching but I've come across nothing useful.

I believe there was also a thread about this, too. Haven't been able to locate it yet. Maybe I should try a search for "Voodoo"...
Resistance is inadvisable...

Basic Theology

Voodoo recognizes one God, Bondye or Gran Met. However, there are a host of spirits or deities called loa which act as intermediaries between humans and God. The loa, unlike Christian angels or devils, have significant powers relatively independent of God, and embody both positive and negative forces within the same loa.

So...Salem, Doctor Le Croix, Madame Sarita and Lula are all LOA?  Are they?

SPOILER: that essentially being the twist at the end, being that they're all spirits (dead) who don't take kindly to the idea of being removed from their land?


Goddamn, Voodoo is such an amazing album really and this kindve stuff really heightens my enjoyment of it.  I love for King to write a book on what the albums all mean and background info on all the characters and surroundings and stuff.  It would be BRILLIANT.  I know that sometimes he likes to be purposefully vague and leave the songs to the imagination, open to interpretation but I think it would be fantastic.
