Under the weight of the moon

A fiercely rabid case of the Mondays has set in.. perhaps the supermoon put me in a trance like state.. maybe the notion that summer is just about over, with the sights, sounds, and smells of the autumn already creeping in during the night time.. Or perhaps it's just because of the tremendously unbearable state of the world. As presented here, in somewhat real time..

The case of the Mondays.. news you can't use but certainly won't abuse from around the world and beyond..

John McCain and his Mz Lindsay Graham took to the weekend airwaves to warn that ISIS is coming to the United States.. Perhaps the same ISIS that is blasting Twitter with images of them meeting with Senator John McCain??

Image of 7-year-old holding severed head shocks Australia..
Australian PM appalled..
Australian national (and ISIS fighter father of child) writes: "That's my boy"

Children and women buried alive at the hands of ISIS..
Family of 8 shot for refusing to convert in Baghdad..
Vicar from Anglican church in Iraq claims a boy he baptized has been cut in half..

Iraq confirms ISIS killed 500 Yazidis..

Governments backing Islamic terrorists..

The horrors of ISIS are being broadcast around the world (people are forced to throw their own children off of cliffs as opposed to let them face ISIS) .. But here is a new perspective I haven't heard yet: Paul Thigpen makes the link between the warlords of the Islamic State (IS) and their historic predecessors, the warlike Assyrians.. Certainly seems like someone on this planet is pushing a new 21st century holy war.. A same.. 2014 and we still fight about ancient relics of things that are most likely documentably absurd.. party like it's 1499 and come to the party so 1000 and late..

I cannot take anymore news about ISIS today.. it's beyond upsetting and revolting.. and for the horror movie fans who email me saying I don't pay enough attention to fiction, get real.. very real: Horror is everywhere.. this site is not only about horror of the big screen or small, it's the horror in life.. the awful depravity of humanity. . the sick and twisted nature of our reptilian ways..
But it also tries to find the shining bright examples of goodness, and celebrates that which is beautiful and amazing. Any parent knows what beauty is: The electricity and light that illuminates from your child's wide eyes. Love that light, be the light.. Be light.
Only light shining in the darkness of this planet will rid us of the pain that binds us.


If you believe...they put a man on the moon. No, like really.. do you believe that this is a man walking on the moon? Some do.. it's certainly a creepy background song that the YOUTUBE video contains.. but the even creepier thing is to contemplate that a man is walking on the moon with his shadow trailing behind him. The image is getting some attention.. And some are saying that the man walking on the moon looks a lot like the statue the "COLOSSUS OF RHODES".. if you believe they put a Colossus on the moon.. Or just the lunar Slenderman taking a supermoon stroll ..

Missouri Misery: Vandalism and looting after a vigil for a Missouri man.. A few thousand people have crammed the street where a black man was shot multiple times by a suburban St. Louis police officer. He was 18, his name was Michael Brown.. and he is dead from the police shooting..
In the wake of this, and the peaceful vigil: Anything from harmony..
Unrest in Missouri.. Confrontations between residents of St. Louis and police.. bottles being hurled at officers and police cars being kicked.. A TV van was attacked .. The crowd shouted 'kill the police' .. Even more: A WALMART store was looted and employees took shelter and hid from the looters.. This is not a protest .. this is lunacy.. under a supermoon on a Sunday night in St. Louis..

The amazing SUPERMOON slideshow..

We probably know this already, but are too worried to speak of it: United States hospitals are not at all ready for an Ebola outbreak..

And while EBOLA ravages so many, people in Africa are unnerved by modern medicine that may aid them.. instead churches are filled as Liberians want to be delivered from the evil of Ebola..

Missionaries return to North Carolina--to be quarantined for 21 days..

I linked this over the weekend, but do so again in case you missed it.. so strange: Weird noises are being heard coming from a volcano--and they are confounding experts..

Chances are you talked about this at least once over the weekend: Tony Stewart ran over a fellow driver on a track this weekend.. Kevin Ward Jr. is dead, and his death was captured on video and uploaded and reloaded around the world millions of times over.. Oh, and yes: He's the same Kevin Ward Jr. that Tony Stewart threatened to run over 2 years ago...

I agree with Sinead O'Connor .. She argues that males performers are also the victims of sexualization.. And she said that Justin Bieber was sold on his sexuality.. Perhaps it's some advice that Beebs should take heed of from Sinead. I frankly think that often major record labels (just music at this juncture) sexualize any child they see.. all for profits.. filth of old men pervading our sense of wonder on this planet.. ruining the lives of any children they market and those being marketed too.. shame never comes to their brains, though.. Preach, Sinead..

Speaking of the sexualization and perversion of the youth: She's still just being Miley.. Cyrus decided that squatting in the woods is so momentous a moment, she snapped a photo for posterity and gave it that INSTAGRAM hue..

Teens speak: They like THE FAULT IN OUR STARS..

Reality vs fiction.. dreams equaling crimes: A man named Carlos Gascon dreamed his girlfriend cheated on him.. So to retaliate for his dreamed up issue, he beat her, slashed her leg, poured hot coffee on her and threatened to kill her while holding a knife at her throat.. His dream equaled her nightmare..

ALIEN ABDUCTION horror movie claimed to be based off of the real-life Brown Mountain Lights story.. You can see the trailer here and read about the supposed true story of the Brown Mountain lights here

Finally, for some perspective.. Let's read no further than what I love on MEDIUM .. It's by Matt McDermott and his old ass dog --and everything he learned about life from his pet named Fletch.. Any dog owner (and pet owner all the same) will agree: Any animal that spans three presidents and two decades means something in life.. they represent love they give to a family and also a bench mark on your own life.. Enjoy your pet .. pet them fondly and often.. They grow old too quick, as McDermott points out .. and they go too soon as any of us who have owned animals certainly knows..

Mystery Surrounds Metal Towers Popping Up In Tunnels & Bridges

Mystery Surrounds Metal Towers Popping Up In Tunnels & Bridges: It’s a $100 million MTA project shrouded in secrecy, with 18 of them for tunnels and bridges. So what are they exactly?The MTA’s man in charge of the bridges and tunnels, Cedrick Fulton, dodged Carlin’s questions Wednesday.“I said no comment,” he said.Some MTA board members, including New York City Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg, say they know too little about the towers – even with half the money already spent and some of the towers already up.“A lot of the board members felt they didn’t have all the details they would have wanted, myself included,” she said.

Seattle butterflies: ALL GODS MUST DIE gets attention

There is something strange afoot in the city of Seattle Washington -- a butterfly effect is causing strange emotions from people who are finding origami butterflies throughout public locations.. when the papers are unfolded, ominous messages appear..

From a local report:
"Origami butterflies with ominous messages have been found all around Seattle.The colorful creations look cheerful at first, but when unfolded, the phrase “you are not safe,” is revealed. A date is printed along with the message: 9-28-17.Even more puzzling are the illustrations, which include Russell Wilson, Kurt Cobain, the Starbucks siren, and a peace message. One of the notes features the Seattle skyline without its famous Space Needle landmark.A website is listed on some of the papers: On it, a scramble of letters merge together to form the statement, "You Are Not Safe” while Wagner's "Das Rheingold" plays. Then, a psychedelic goat appears behind the vaguely threateni…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
