Sochi preparations

The world will be closely watching the Sochi Olympics .. 10,000 athletes strong and their families too will be in the Russian city in a hope that the ceremony and games will conclude two weeks later without any violent fanfare. But just in case, the United States has prepared a plan to extract citizens from the Sochi games, according to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.. More here

Officials have been hunting at least five 'black widow' terrorists, and other threats of violence have been circulated online.

Russians, of course, deal with things their way. Burning down an entire movie theater is never out of the question for Vlad the Impaler.

During the Olympics, we always seem to see the best of the best, but the worst of the worst tries to make itself evident. That is no different in the case of Sochi, with the threats of mass killing..

I am worried about these games, though.. Heck, I always worry about the games. They would be the target of all targets for anyone who wants to send a violent message or commit an act of atrocity.

And even reading about Sochi itself, once the Olympics are over and done, that city will still be a center or poverty, once that Russia has been attempting to hide from the rest of the world under the bright lights of an Olympic stadium..

Bind together and send some collective consciousness or pray to whatever power you worship that the only controversy we see at the games are about the actual games. Pray and hope that a unified set of athletes compete to overcome and win. And let's try our best to send positive signals to Sochi... But I'm still worried. After all, things like this happened before..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
