Hey Guys! Woah. Two consecutive posts this week! Woot!
I have seen something new in the Poptropica Store today! Here’s what I found!
Its Icarus and Cyclops, famous characters in Greek Mythology.
Do you guys think what I think? Will Mythology Island be released soon? Yay! But, why are they giving these away? Hmmm. Weird.
In Greek mythology, Icarus (the Latin spelling, conventionally adopted in English; Ancient Greek: Ἴκαρος, Íkaros,Etruscan: Vikare) is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. Often depicted in art, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus’ father warns him first of complacency and then of hubris, asking that he not fly too low nor too high because the sea’s dampness would clog, and the sun’s heat would melt his wings. Icarus ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned. This tragic theme of failed ambition contains similarities to that of Phaëthon.
A cyclops (/ˈsaɪklɒps/; Ancient Greek: Κύκλωψ, Kuklōps; plural cyclopes /saɪˈkloʊpiːz/; Ancient Greek: Κύκλωπες,Kuklōpes), in Greek mythology and later Roman mythology, was a member of a primordial race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of his forehead. The name is widely thought to mean “round-eyed” or “circle-eyed”.
Also, if Mythology Island will be released soon, I’m very happy! Really excited how the music will play. Can’t wait to replay it again! Or…Mythology Island will have a sequel? Hmmm. I don’t know that though. Time will only tell.
Music of the day! Here’s “The Only Exception” by Paramore! I really love this song! Makes me think of things I love. 🙂
