Stephen Bassett: The man who is exposing .. or making a name..?



"Twilight zone weather" across the United States.. Freakish April cold (and lots of heavy snow in places) across the nation.. Iowa...Heavy storms with hail and gusty winds today. 1-4 inches of wet snow Wed Night. ..

It's not just at the Philadelphia house of horrors.. a video released by the anti-abortion group LIVE ACTION finds another abortion clinic staffer saying they've allowed babies to die after failed abortions.. admits they'd leave a baby to struggle for life after failing to abort.. Another video that the group released was from the Bronx, in which a staffer explained how a baby surviving abortion would be placed into a jar of toxic 'solution' to ensure death.. The mistake that is being made is for this issue to be about abortion. This clearly is not abortion, this is beyond it.. there are federal rules in place that protect a baby once it is born--and this issue is about murder as opposed to legal abortion. But don't expect both sides of the issue to treat it like that..











Making the jump: Four-year-old child of bird-flu infected man also develops H7N9 virus.. Still, Shandong Province's health department claims 'no evidence' of human-to-human transmission. Captain Trips does not exist..

Melancholy Sunday to all

Sunday was never my favorite day of the week.. as a matter of fact, there have been times I absolutely hated it. There is something magically lonely about the thoughts of a Sunday morning--perhaps that is best exemplified by Kris Kristofferson's SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN (even more so when performed by the late Johnny Cash) ..
So on a day when you wake up, feeling melancholy and a little out of sorts, the best thing to do may be to put on Cash's version of the song, all about waking up Sunday morning, walking through a neighborhood resounding with church bells and being filled with an aroma of frying chicken.. or you can listen to Anna Kendrick. Thanks to my wife Tara this morning, it was the "CUPS" that suddenly got stuck in my head..
Picture Anytown, USA, a diner in the middle of no where, filled with a singing staff and dancing crowd. It sounds too good to be true because it is too good to be true.. but it's a creative video and a song that will become a part  of your whistling and humming for hours to come.

Watching my son grow



Haircut weekend..
Long to...
Short



It's an amazing thing, this fatherhood thing.
Every day I am reminded by headlines and stories that this world is scary.. But I look at my son and realize that it's all FOR something, there is a purpose, and there is something called love. And it's real.

Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend..

There's something about the lonely hotel..


A friend of mine and I were speaking tonight regarding hotels. He's on a business trip in the metropolis of Erie, Pennsylvania, and staying at a local 'comfort' inn of sorts.. 




But there's not much comforting about his home for the night. He said a walk down the halls seems to be an eerie reminder of the SHINING's Overlook hotel. Maybe Jack Torrance will pop out from behind a corner.. maybe those twin girls from Stanley Kubrick's version of the Stephen King classic will show up in the distance..
I told my friend to cue up some classic Art Bell Ghost to Ghost. He may, but he will also be reading a nonfiction account of serial killers. He's got a nightmare-wish if you ask me..

Yes, indeed, there is just something about the lonely hotel scene that can scare the wits out of someone..

But why?
What is it about those long and lonely hallways? Is it the carpeting? The wallpaper?

Numerous hotels and bed and breakfasts seem to have that creepy feeling. There is a feeling that a soul can leave an impression on the place where it rests. . often deaths occur within the walls of hotel rooms. And even more, there are ghost tours, ghost seances, and top ten lists littering the Internet of the scariest hotels to stay in.

It still doesn't answer the question, though, of what is it about hotels that scare us so much.

I pondered this issue this evening a bit..  I have a theory on why. I think it's because of the vacancy of the hotel, because of the fact that it's only temporary. In a sense, a hotel is equitable to life in general. In life, we inhabit a platform to work and play, we rent a body, or a container if you believe in the Grays creating theory, and then we check out. We leave the body and we leave the play.. We're only here for a short while. Sometimes our stay is fun, sometimes it's lonely.. sometimes we cry out in sadness night after night at local and global horrors.. And sometimes we sleep with pride and love with beauty overshadowing us..

In a hotel, it's no different.
Hundreds of people have stayed in the same room that you're guesting in when you sleep there. Some of them have fought, some of them have loved, some of them probably loved in a messy way (check the sheets with a black light) .. and some have died there.
That is right.
Some people have met their maker, if we have one, in a hotel room..
Imagine that! Renting a body and leaving it while you're renting a room.. no one to pay the bill except and empty soulless vessel.
Yes, hotels are strange places.
There is so often a lonely quality about them.. Even if you're sharing a room with someone else, you still get an overwhelming sense that you're all on your own, on the defensive, and constantly checking over your shoulder for dangers both hidden and overt.

No matter what kind of lobby a hotel has, no matter what kind of rooms service, and no matter how much you enjoy the pay per view movies, two things are clear: 1) There will be a bill to pay, just as there will be when we perish from this planet, and 2) There will be a part of a hotel, a room, or a hallway, that zaps a smile from your face and fills you with a  foreboding sense that something bad will happen.

When I gave my overall thought to my friend in Erie, PA tonight, that hotels are a reminder of the impending end of the line, or 'check out,' we'll all make, he replied "LOL I'm more scared of the sheets in a hotel." Obviously he's keeping up a smile in the lonely hotel room, somewhere out there in the middle of somewhere.

Alabama explosions

This breaking now.. CNN reporting:
(CNN) - A fire broke out Wednesday night on Alabama's Mobile River after two barges loaded with natural gas exploded not far from where a once listless Carnival cruise ship was docked, authorities said.

The Mobile Fire-Rescue Department, on its official Twitter feed, reported that it had "units on the scene on east side of Mobile River where a fuel barge has exploded and is on fire." Minutes later, the fire department issued an update stating that two barges had exploded.

Three people who were burned were transported to a local hospital, fire department spokesman Steve Huffman told CNN. He did not describe the severity of their injuries. All people are believed to have been accounted for, Huffman added.
