Yes, Jack Shoegazer!

The term has come to be used as a metaphor for impending doom.

Ah, dear Brethren! The ICONOMICON! stands against the Ides of March, bringing you plentiful bounty of iconographic lore! Behold!


( Caesar summoned the Senate to meet in the Theatre of Pompey on the Ides of March. A certain seer warned Caesar to be on his guard against a great peril on the day of the month of March which the Romans call the Ides; and when the day had come and Caesar was on his way to the senate-house, he greeted the seer with a jest and said: 'The Ides of March has come,' and the seer said to him softly: 'Yes, the Ides of March has come, but it has not passed.' As the Senate convened, Caesar was attacked and stabbed to death by a group of senators who called themselves the Liberatores; they justified their action on the grounds that they committed tyrannicide and were preserving the Republic from Caesar's alleged monarchical ambitions. )
