Out with the new. In with the old.

The rituals begin anew..
Fireworks around the world.. celebrations. Bars packed with amateurs attempting to recreate the perfect scene from a movie that never really was real to begin with.. And Times Square. That beautiful little piece of concrete island where a million people sway together, sing together, kiss each other, and desperately try to find a working toilet or corner alley to relieve themselves of their holiday cups of cheer..

It's New Years Eve..
And we don't have Dick Clarke to kick around anymore.. Ryan Seacrest will due. He's not 'out' at this time but certainly has solidified himself in becoming the face that my three year old will see one day when he is 21 years of age and hopefully--hopefully! making smart decisions with his body in bars..

We will have to ensure Taylor Swift, undoubtedly. She is the flame of the year--he flame is bright and she's mopping up each last second of fame and TIME magazine covers.

That is how 2014 was.. it was a year of the unreal--planes going missing and acts of war that were never called them. Children being massacred as sacrifices to demons.. Selfie sticks. The perversion of television.. the mind numbing ignorance of Americans.. the total comedy collapse. It was a year when everything stopped being funny.

Jokes don't work anymore, but GIFs do.. Sitcoms are toast. But VINE is the most.. and REDDIT is king, but 4CHAN still leads--they're the engine that creates the creative machine..

As we turn a blind eye to the calender's end and welcome in a new year with drunken melodies at watering holes, I am enthusiastically looking forward to 2015..

There's a few reasons why, which I will tell you in this already too lengthy post..
A listing of why 'everything is awesome.'

2015 is just cool.

Think about it.. we made it this far. 2015.. I can recall so many events over the past 15 years--hell, even 30.. And it all just flew by. The sands of time are quickly moving through the hourglass of our minds.. But that is nothing to be sad about. As some would say, the only real thing that exists is the present. The moment you're in now.. the time you're reading this, or scanning it, or clicking off in boredom. This is real. The past was real.. but it's gone. Nothing to lament or be shameful of.  So make everyday a little more real and seize the day. This day. Nothing from yesterday.. and ignore the future, it doesn't even exist..

We have gone through 15 years of mindless hell. Terror and torture.. no role models worth modeling.. an invasion of technology and humanoids.. machines and robots that will take our jokes away..
We have also endured the setup to what appears to be a police-like state, which constant surveillance and Fusion Centers, red light cams, and constant drivel on the still existence cable snooze networks about how  it's all to keep us safe..

But in 2015, we're so over that.
It's time for a change, and attitude adjustment and a rude awakening for the hounds of negativity that worship at the alter of evil. We have the power to change the course of history, and I think 2015 may be the year we will.

We are so over some other stuff, too..
I think selfishness has gotten boring. Perhaps this is the year when the selfies will end and, well, maybe the couplies will take over.. we will still capture and tweet and tumble all the moments of our lives, but I sense a bit of something more taking place. I think we long for affection, not attention. I believe that 2015 will be the year we decide to forgo the nonsense of meaningless and start searching for the soul again.. A deeper appreciation of life, and a core meaning to what we are even earthlings to begin with.

Maybe 2015 will be the year we collectively decide that reaching for the stars is the best thing humans can do. Maybe we are made for the stars since we are from them anyway. Often during ocean trips, I stare at the ocean and become frightened but secure all at the same time. Frightened at the immense body of water knowing the power it has to indiscriminately kill me, but yet at the same time know that somehow that ocean is the home to all human life. The same with space--staring at the stars does not feel like peering at other worlds, but quite the contrary. It feels like you're looking at a photograph of where you were from, you're youth before life, complimenting your mortal body's makeup of stardust and ancient history..

I feel we are getting a little 'over' celebrity .. Twitter has made us feel closer. We can stream music. We don't need theaters to see movies anymore.. and the TVGUIDE has outlasted its time. Things are changing.. the old days are over. That's not a bad thing..
Instead, the user, the moviegoer or music lover, TV addict or avid reader, all have new abilities to see the art their choose to and enjoy the entertainment they want to. When they want to.. We are not impressed with the rich and famous--instead we have sort of grown to ignore their non-plight. I think that will continue in 2015..

The economy sucks. Just plain sucks. Joblessness is immensely bad, and without question you know someone who is unemployed or you are unemployed.. We are over this. We want a change.. Maybe the collective consciousnesses will assist us in making a better future in the coming year. Sometimes when you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, you make the choice to stop being sick and tired.

I think 2015 will be the food revolution's culmination. The FOOD BABE is mocked and hated by millions, but think about her message, minus the political tones.. She is simply saying to eat better and know your ingredients. And stop eating plastic. And food coloring.. and stuff. All that stuff. Just eat food. I think in 2015, we will continue to shop smarter and better, and with prices soaring, we will start to educate ourselves about what we are paying for.. and going broke for. And maybe our stomachs will thank us by December 2015 with a better digestive system..

We will accept more people in 2015.. as the generation born since 1995 becomes 20, they will bring with them a strong pursuit of acceptance. Hate is so 20th century.. I hope it stays confined to that..

The challenges around the world are going to become more clear--the despot and dictators who ravage the landscape and kill the spirit of their people will be evident. In 2014, we saw the senseless murder of children.. women.. babies.. we know the enemy. The enemy is seemingly not of this world. I hope 2015 is the year when the world puts its hands together and deals with the disgusting vermin who inhabit far too many towns and nations on this globe..

I think President Obama will have a better year.
There's something to be said for his critics. He has been far less in the change and hope category.
But Americans want to like their leader. This may be the year we finally do, the year we accept him as President.. I don't think Americans really did accept him yet. He was an obscure figure who inhabited the White House, someone who had a seemingly happy family and golfed .. In 2015, we will come to understand he's our president--but that does not mean we'll think he's good at the job.. instead we will realize he has the job.

2015 is a big deal--it's a marker in history.
It's been 15 years since Y2K did not kill us. It's been 3 years since the Mayan calender ending. Each non event become a new beginning.

I think 2015 is a new beginning.

Filled in my spirit, there is a great deal of enthusiasm for the year to come.. I pray it will not be 12 months of hell on earth, but instead each day may be the best day ever.

My son Ayden really got to enjoy a show this year, and you've most likely heard of it if you're under the age of 18 or have children under the age of 10: Phineas and Ferb.  I actually got to love it, too.. The theme of the show was performed by the band BOWLING FOR SOUP--a big bad when I was around 21.. there is an extended version of the main theme called  TODAY IS GONNA BE A GREAT DAY. Clearly the song has ludicrous lyrics.. until you really get to the point of the song. It's a song of hope and happiness. And watching my son, in all of his innocence, dance his head off when he hears this song, gives me hope and brings a smile to my face that often cannot leave, despite the negative world that exists around us. I suggest you make this song at least a brief part of your day. Enjoy it.. have fun. And dance like a child who innocently still looks at the world.



Maybe we all should do that a little more..
Dance like no one is watching?
Or dance even harder when they do watch..

HAPPY NEW YEAR
2015

The year ends with a fireball

A massive evening fireball was reported by over 300 people from Montreal to Delaware last night around 6:35, with some reporting flames, others comparing it to fireworks, and at least person catching it on a dash cam.
This ends a dramatic year of fireballs and pink stars falling, a reference the HORROR REPORT made on several occasions comparing the strange fall of space debris with the CBS show UNDER THE DOME..

Harrisburg PA radio show host from WHP580 Ken Matthews saw it too and spoke about it on his program Tuesday at 3pm, saying it was one of the brightest fireballs he'd ever witnessed..

That adds to the other reports. The American Meteor Society said it has received more than 500 reports of a bright fireball just after 6:30 p.m.

Video here..



The final scene

What is a year?
A passage of time.
From sidewalks of earth
To the sublime.

A path not taken,
A memento of space,
It's been a rough year.
Let's make haste .

So here's to the cheer
And a drink from the well,
Welcome '15,
Please don't bring with you hell.

ARE WE READY?

There have been a lot of folks ‘down’ on New Years lately—people are taking the approach that staying in is better than going out. And I completely get that. The notion of sharing a night with amateurs who pronounce Filet Mignon as “fill it mig nun” isn’t too appealing.

However, take a peek back in time .. MASHABLE put together a nifty set of photos that showcases new years in Times Square since the 1930s..

From shirts and ties, tuxedos and top hats, to the more modern attire at the affair, just being a part of Times Square in New York is cool. Sure there may be no place to urinate, except the street you’re standing.. and yes it’s cold and you get hungry.. and of course on TEE VEE you can see Ryan Seacrest up close, but he is wearing too much makeup anyway.

Being apart of New York on New Years is being a part of history, raising the glass to times gone and singing Auld Lang Syne to a new time, one that hopefully brings with it good moments and profits of the wallet and spirit.

Do what you want to on new years eve.. but do it because you want to, not because talking heads without brains tell you what to do..

Maybe your local watering hole.. a church.. a library. Do they have libraries in 2015?? Or maybe a casino.. I don’t know.

Maybe watch the Twilight Zone marathon.

Heck, maybe Times Square.

Either way raise the cup of cheer and sing in a new year..

The New Exhibit


Format Change: Michael Savage becomes a 'life coach' in 2015

Michael Savage takes on new broadcast role: Life coach and ‘wise father’ »



Michael Savage is changing things .. The fiery talk show host who many hate is changing his style.. the conservative host said he will continue to talk about news when needed, but his 2015 format will be featuring a “wise father” attempt at giving advice and life coaching..

Even more, Savage said that he will also have “unprotected talk”—unscreen open lined, a-la-Art Bell..

Even more, Savage has coined the term ‘unprotected talk’ and copyrighted it for its protection..

It’s hard to think of Dr. Savage as Oprah.. Especially when you consider the call that got Savage fired from MSNBC..



But hey. It’s all about marketing.

 

The stock dumps conspiracy theories are made of

The AirAsia flight vanishing act is going to be just as controversial and weird as the Malaysian jetliner from earlier in 2014.. and adding to that: Stock options and a CEO dumping all of his days before an AirAsia plane disappeared..

This is how the story got started.. On December 26—before flight QZ8501 fell somewhere to the earth—it was reported that AirAsia CEO Tony Ferdandes dumped over 944,000 shares of stock..

Then it gets weirder (as it so often does when you deal with reality) .. A report has been spreading online concerning a mysterious and unnamed Chinese blogger who apparently warned to avoid AirAsia flights, warning that upcoming planes would be targeted by ‘powerful’ forces..

Then the AirAsia flight vanishes. We are told that bad weather forced an abrupt turnaround. It fell off the radar.. 162 people were on board..

This after an AirAsia magazine said that one of its flights would ‘never get lost’ .. 

In the aftermath of the flight loss, AirAsia stock is being hit hard..  it has dropped the most since 2011.

The loss of the light is forcing the media to look at Tony Fernandes.. the spotlight is now on the CEO.The Financial Express is reporting some in depth information on him, including his ability to play drums and keyboards and come up with provocative advertising that used misogynist references.. But the publication didn’t mention the stock dump that happened days earlier.

And based off of the whole event some news media sources are actually reporting some conspiracy theories making the rounds… Such as the INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS TIMES .. included with the IBT report are the facts about the stock dump..

While we are being told that the plane is probably ‘at the bottom of the sea,’  there are still some strange occurrences worth exploring..  Such as this: Reports that a relative of one of the people on board the plane received a text message that the plane landed and all were safe.. Also this: Official websites reported the missing flight having landed in Singaporebefore reports were broadcast to the world that it went missing.

So with that all said and linked for your digestive tracts to attempt to endure, it is fair to say nothing will stop conspiracy theories now.

Not even a CEO who can play keyboard and bang the drum..

The missing plane, an update

First full day of search for AirAsia jet #QZ8501: Object in sea NOT the missing jet »



History is repeating itself. It feels just like the spring of 2014 when Flight 370 went missing. Reports of it landing, then it didn’t.. reports of families getting text messages, and then the media saying it’s just delusions of the grieving.. reports of the government finding wreckage, and then yielding nothing.

This is the stuff conspiracy theorists salivate over. And why wouldn’t they? The notion of the same thing happening two times in one year, and being almost exact in a mystery is breathtaking. Also the aftermath is even more alarming, with the same rumor mill pumping and the tough part of separating fact from fiction.

We simply know this: Another jet has been ‘lost’ and there are no signs, traces, or hints of the wreckage anywhere.

Along with the loss of the jet, 162 people including 17 children and 1 infant are most likely gone from this earthly existence..

A bad year for aviation indeed.
Or one of completely mystery that one day will be explained by future events..

The Monday after.. 360 days left until Christmas!

It's over.. It's time to relax. Put away the Christmas decorations, or if you're like several of my neighbors just wait until the big thaw in July. Or heck, even leave them up for a bit longer and before you know it the rest of the town will join you.

There is something strange to me about the post Christmas blues.. even though stores are busy and lively, people are returning their items purchased. And the Christmas music that still plays in the mall is a little insulting to the senses.. it's like beating a dead horse, the song has played itself out. The fire has burned .. the light is growing dim..

For every child, the countdown now begins until school returns to session. Until then, the solid week of vacation is on.  It goes fast, though..

And during adulthood, life starts again earlier. As though it never stopped..

Now the scales will be busy with people who forgot to count calories, or those who had a few too many spirits. The new years resolutions will begin, with outlandish prophecies from people about how their personal lives will make an abrupt turnaround in 2015.. By the second week of January, the fat will stop burning and the money will start spending.  Perhaps a daily affirmation would be better than a yearly resolution?

So that was Christmas.. and what have we done?
Another year over.. A new one just begun.

It all reminds me of the second video of the DON'T HUG ME I'M SCARED series, maybe because I was recently reminded of how freaky it was. The video is called TIME. And don't tell me it doesn't scare the hell out of you, too..


But as time would have it, there's only 360 days left until Christmas. And the frightening reality exists: Christmas 2015 will be here before we know it and we'll do all the same things again..

Plane vanishing act

It would seem unlikely that an unlikely event would take place two times in one year.. but that has occurred.. It's been months since flight MH 370 vanished without a trace or evidence of debris, and now another flight may be added to the list of strange airline disasters of 2014.

This is what is known this far about the newest and weirdest air disaster..

The Airbus A320-200 disappeared at approximately 2320 GMT while en route from Surabaya in Indonesia's east Java to Singapore.
Shortly before it vanished from the radar screens, the pilot had asked air traffic controllers to ascend by 6,000 feet to 38,000 feet to avoid severe thunderstorms.

Indonesia has deployed seven aircraft, four navy ships and six boats from the search and rescue agency...

The search has been called off at this time due to darkness and bad weather..

We so know there were at least 18 children on board his fought including an infant..

While loci would say the worst has occurred, families are still holding out hope for a miracle..

The scenes I wailing families are similar to the aftermath of flight 370's vanishing act..

As could be expected, this mystery is also being intensified by online rumors, including one that has even reported on several sites that a family member got a text message saying the people are board were safe and that the plane landed..

Even more, there were early reports on official aviation websites that the plane landed in Singapore hours before the reports surfaced of the plane going missing..

We are following this story and attempting to not report every rumor we come across.. But the oddities surrounding this plane going missing seem to be the same as flight 370..

Until more develops, the misery of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 will persist..

Plane vanished and attacks

The HORROR REPORT is obviously going to be following this.. An AirAsia flight has lost contact with air traffic control in Jakarta, Indonesia, a crisis center for the airline said Sunday. The plane's flight number is AirAsia Flight 8501.

This seems to be the year of mysteries in the skies..

But an urgent personal matter is top priority.. We appear to become a target of a mass DDOS attack.. You may or may not even be able to see this posting.

We are working this out and checking the security levels of the site...

And in the meantime watching the air loss story on pins and needles like the rest of the world..

Don't Hug Me I'm Scared. And still creeped out.

I recalled watching the original DON'T HUG ME I'M SCARED years ago. Heck , with how fast time moves, it seems like ages .. but it was 2011 (prior to the birth of my son, so it does actually feel like a whole other time period.)



The video was created after a kickstarter campaign helped Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling bring it to life.. While the original video has aged now, it was brought back into focus this weekend when Clyde Lewis posted a message on his Facebook page saying that he was speaking to someone who told him that the DON'T HUG ME I'M SCARED series is being used for MK ULTRA mind control. He asked readers to simply say what they thought after watching .. 

Reaction was mixed--some said that people were taking the video too seriously.. Others were simply freaked out by the imagery and music. A few remarked that the video was social commentary on the education system--how educators always tell children to be creative but then attack them for doing so.

The video, from 2011, is posted here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C_HReR_McQ

Some interesting notes to mention on this whole entire subject.

Theories have been around for some time, this is not the first time someone has asked what the true nature of the short video is .. and even more, entire websites are devoted to in depth studies over the commentary presented in the DON'T HUG ME series..

And if you thought the video's allure would have been confined to only 2011 or the years since, you're wrong. More DON'T HUG ME I'M SCARED videos are on the way.. In May 2014, Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling announced that they would begin a kickstarter campaign to make four more episodes of the show. The third episode was just released in October of 2014, it features one character called Shrignold teaching another called The Yellow Guy about love..

But to go deeper into what Clyde Lewis posted, the mystery behind the meaning of the video is answered, a bit at least, by the makers. Sloan said this when asked about the project in an interview with YES YOU CAN:
We decided to create something psychedelic to compliment Tame Impala’s music. We had the idea to create an abstract journey set during the split second when two people’s eyes meet for the first time. As we wanted it to be set inside someone’s head, we looked at a lot of MRI brain scans for inspiration, as well as looped animations by artists such as Al Jarnow.

Pelling followed up with this,
We wanted to create something unique looking, and had never really worked with plasticine before. Our aim was to focus on using it in a new way, avoiding the obvious Wallace & Gromit approach. The good thing about plasticine is the fact you can smudge, mix and even melt it into certain shapes. This creates a very acid-y, psychedelic look without using loads of digital effects

However that answers few mysteries, but it certainly does confirm to a degree that a partial goal of the filmmakers was to present something with hidden messages and a constant weird flow of  creepy and disturbing images.  It does not go into much detail thought of meaning.. A Google search, though, will reveal countless websites that cover topics.. One I found was written by Chris Gibson on a hubpages site, where he explained in good detail some of the meanings he was seeing in the film. The date of June 19th shows up a lot. Gibson wrote this on that topic,
This is a tough one. There aren't very many clues to this other than the date and the content of the videos themselves. The only real theory I have comes from typing the date into Wikipedia and searching year by year to try and find something that corresponded. The only event that seems to be related at all is the establishment of the FCC on June 19th 1934, or in other words, The Communications Act of 1934. The organization created are the people who dictate what is okay to watch on TV.

More mysteries.. What struck me was this.. The original video--from 2011--and subsequent, made heavy references to June 19. The Kickstarter campaign to make new videos that was announced years after the first video, was fully funded in 2014. On June 19.
Really.
June 19th.
That date..again. Perhaps the reality of that creeped me out, even more so than the actual video ..

Even religious folk have debated the movie.. A forum on a Catholic themed website in October debated the topic...

Mind control?
Commentary?
Forced creepiness?

One comment on the official DON'T HUG ME I'M SCARED Facebook page made me ponder if an MK ULTRA message abounds.. It said only this on Christmas Eve,
these videos god as witness describe my brain
i do listen to the voices in my brain

You can be the judge. But I dare you to only watch the video one time. But I challenge you to not watch it too many..

But green is not a creative color.

The year the devil took over?

I was reading a wonderful story from JPOST today, it was an opinion column written by Naomi Ragen.. she opens her article with a word about the hit 1970s movie THE OMEN and how she was watching it a few days back.. Ragen explained how the audience watching THE OMEN knew a bit more than the actors, and how we understood the devil was at play while they did not. Ragen said,
In The Omen 3: Final Conflict, the screenwriters are tasked with imagining what the world would look like if the Devil gained control.

As I read the newspapers every day, it seems to me we are seeing exactly that.

Her point is taken.

She writes,
The slaughter of 132 Pakistani schoolchildren and their teachers. The latest Boko Haram atrocity in kidnapping a whole village of women and girls. The admission of an Islamic State fighter that he personally murdered 150 women and girls who refused to be raped and “married” off to a murderer. The harvesting of organs for the black market by Islamic State from prisoners and their own fighters. The bloody, senseless butchery in a Har Nof synagogue. The “revenge” murder of two New York policemen in cold blood following a chorus of political and social incitement from politicians and “race pimps,” as actor James Woods so aptly called Reverend Al Sharpton

I think this paragraph says it best--the rest of her article delves deep into political and religious themes which you could read yourself.

I only promote this column because, if you have read the HORROR REPORT throughout the year, you'll know that I often have written the gates of hell were open. Ever since SIRI announced it on iPhones in 2013, it seemed to take place. Even Joe Biden spoke of it in a speech.. It was the devil's year.

If there is a devil.

And with the evil on the planet, how could there not be..

One of the most horrific parts of the tragedies which have befallen the world seemingly have been taking place against children. They are not being spared, with beheadings affecting them in territory that ISIS now covers, and the mass school shooting in Pakistan that made America's famed school murders look like child's play, no pun intended.

This world was filled with grief in 2014.. countless nightmares before Christmas.. Pain and suffering across the planet.

Naomi Ragen finished her opinion piece like this,
The consequences of the wrong choices by our generation are truly beyond the wildest imagination of even the most skillful horror movie screenwriters.

Maybe 2015 will bring a comedy. Or a drama.. or just a good old fashioned action flick.
Or maybe a continuation of horror.. playing out in nightly news accounts endlessly..

A savior for every species

Perhaps it's just that miraculous time of year..?

Video is making the rounds today online showing a monkey saving his friend.. But even more, the monkey that is being saved was without any sign of life for 20 minutes--his friend apparently had some sort of other worldly to bring back  a monkey from the edge of death..

There is video evidence of something.. as you can see here.

You can determine if you believe this to be a modern miracle in the monkey world or just a chance action in life.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57GZ1v9bBpw]

The Associated Press picked up the story, as well.. The dispatch writes 
Onlookers at a train station in northern India watched in awe as a monkey came to the rescue of an injured friend - resuscitating another monkey that had been electrocuted and knocked unconscious.

A Christmas miracle. Not confined to the human race..

DARLENE LOVE’S FINAL PERFORMANCE ON DAVID LETTERMAN’S FINAL CHRISTMAS SHOW



Darlene Love’s final performance on Letterman at Christmas.. and maybe the best.  This song, and the Letterman show, has heralded in my Christmas spirit every year since I was a child.. It’s the end of an era.. I will need to find a new source in 2015

Early Christmas Eve news roundup

As Christmas Eve begins this early morning hour, there are still toils and troubles making news from the world and beyond.. A collection and smattering here now from the planet not nearly at peace like we'd wish..

There may not be a war directed at Christmas.. but there sure are wars ON Christmas..



News from Ohio this year.. A homeowner is making news after reporting to the world that his township is telling him to take down his zombie nativity scene.. The owner of the scene also has a haunted house called 13 ROOMS OF DOOM... And he believes his first amendment rights are being violated..



Woman arrested in attack on Satanic Temple display..



Another fatal shooting near Ferguson.. according to reports, an 18-year-old pointed a hand gun at a police officer.. he was shot. The protesters say that the brutality aspect entered when police failed to call for medical assistance for Antonio Martin after he was shot.. The St. Louis Police Department is handling the internal investigation, but we know that the inital AP report is this for the record: "One of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer, Schellman said. The officer fired several shots, striking and fatally wounding the man. The second man fled, and the dead man's handgun has been recovered, according to Schellman" ..

Texas family says they see the Virgin Mary in a tree..

Western journalist given unprecedented access to ISIS for days.. he came back reporting that ISIS plans the largest religious cleansing of the planet in history.. Even more: The reporter says that the West has no concept of how dangerous ISIS is.. With that premise: ISIS sets its sights on 'cleansing' Europe next..
MEANWHILE..

ISIS shoots down war plane..

SONY releasing INTERVIEW on Christmas after all.. I wrote last night that I felt a little queasy about agreeing with SONY's position on this whole thing after what occurred.. I am not the only one who thinks a marketing scam may have just taken place..

Canadian cannibal porn star found guilty of murder..

2015 Predictions: Zombie Apocalypse Virus Becomes Possible Via An Artificial Virus Bioweapon..

The safety net of the future?

THE NEXT BIG SOCIAL IDEA: UNCONDITIONAL BASIC INCOME »


The fundamental theory behind this new social idea:
Unconditional Basic Income.

The UBI is a monthly monetary income granted every month, unconditionally, by a political community to each of its members from birth. Depending on the nation, in Europe and the U.S. it would probably be $2,500 per adult and $1,500 per child. It must secure a minimum livelihood and enable a participation in society. It is unconditional because it constitutes a human, civil and legal right and shall be provided without proof of need and without obligation to work, search for work, or performing any services in return. Yes, you’re being paid to live, work and participate as you please.

Some may immediately decry this as a socialist experiment on crack.. But there’s something to be said for one point of this: I often wonder about the future, especially about jobs.. as they dry and whither, does this UBI become more possible?

Does time may it almost necessary to feed and clothe a population that has succumbed to the machine and lost out to the monotony that only robots can perform well?

Would this promote a new age of art and literature, perhaps people leaving jobs they hate and filling their newfound safety net with good things. Just very good things?

Or does all of this get wrecked with the lack of monetary value?

I have a suspicious mind about UBI .. but I also have a belief that if we do not address the reorganization taking place within our economy, the vast majority of people who are going to lose their jobs in the next ten due to technology and progress are going to be in a very bad spot.

But the 1% will still be fine..

All the world's a stage

After all that.. SONY will show THE INTERVIEW in ‘select theaters’ Christmas..

Call me a kooky conspiracy nut, but I offer up the following premise, only based on hunches and a windy tale of a spider web of oddities..

THE INTERVIEW was getting really bad press.. and awful reviews. Most who saw it said it was not funny. It looked disastrous..
The State Department helped write the ending. Along with someone from the RAND Corp, that was reported in the DAILY BEAST..

Sony got hacked—either an inside job or a group called the GOP. I don’t believe North Korea did it.. not that they wouldn’t want to. But SONY figured out a great PR way to make America hate North Korea, force headlines about racist and sordid emails OFF the front pages, and cancel a movie, only to create a demand to release it.

President Obama got in on the action.
And suddenly it seems to be a patriotic duty to go see THE INTERVIEW..

It reads like a spy novel.. or a badly written HOLLYWOOD film.
And really, isn’t all the world a stage?

Maybe we saw some players for who they are?

Pope Francis' Christmas message becomes brutal and honest assessment of Vatican issues

Pope Francis’ year is ending with a bang..
The leader of the Catholic Church stood in the Curia in Rome.. the annual Christmas gift is laden with holy rhetoric and stories of God, Jesus, and a Virgin Birth that gave us Christmas..

But Pope Francis’ approach this year was not with tradition.. his words blazed with fire as they were pronounced.. those in attendance were given a harsh admonishment for their ways.. the Pope of the people was sincere in his pronouncements.. he seemingly has found a source of moral ruin within the walls of the Vatican.

The Pope told the Cardinals, some who seemingly looked like they were wincing and squirming in their self-righteous chairs, that there is an ‘illness’ in the churcg raging.. the Pontiff said that bureaucracy at the Vatican  was complete with a “disease of feeling immortal” to vainglory and excessive planning.. he said that a church that does not improve is akin to a ‘sick body.’

He railed against the “pathology of power.”

Francis said,
Those who lose their inner serenity, their vivacity and audacity, to hide behind their papers, becoming like procedural machines rather than men of God. This is dangerous to lose human sensitivity, so necessary in order to cry with those who cry and enjoy with those who enjoy.

Even more, Francis went on to say there is a danger of ‘spiritual Alzheimer’s’.. forgetting the story of salvation.. and a ‘lost memory’ when people encounter God after this existence is finalized.

The words were eloquent. Even more, they were hard hitting.

Pope Francis was spot on in his assessment of how gossip prevails in the halls of the Vatican–secret whispers and hints of power playing.. More from Francis:
This is a serious disease that begins simply when people chatter, and it takes over the person, turning the person as a Satan, and in so many cases people are speaking ill about their own colleagues and brothers and sisters. These people haven’t got the courage to speak directly, and they speak about others behind their backs,” he said. “Dear brothers, let us be aware and guard against the terrorism of gossip

Dear brothers, such diseases and such temptations are a naturally a danger for each Christian and for each Curia. For each community, for any ecclesiastical movement. They can damage both individually and the community. We have to say that only the Holy Spirit and the soul of Christ, only he can protect us from the disease.


We have to cure ourselves of these. Let us try to grow together and close to Christ.

And so it was said.
A Cardinal said it best: This was a dressing down like no other..Cardinal Giovanni Lajolo, the former Vatican governor and foreign minister said “to be honest, nothing like this has ever happened before,’
