This video was recorded at New Renaissance bookstore in NW Portland, Oregon on July 3rd, 2014. Topics include the American national anthem and its freemasonic lyricist Francis Scott Key, along with the freemasonic composer who wrote the original music, John Stafford Smith, and the overarching Freemasonic symbolism of the national anthem's music itself.  From here the narrative ventures through imagined esoteric correlations between music theory and the dog star, Sirius, of the constellations Canis Major and Canis Minor. Enjoy!
