Season's greetings from the gates of hell

The sign could not have been in a more bizarre spot.

As protests began last night in Ferguson, Missouri, police and people had a stand off, a “Season’s Greetings” sign was evident in a number of photographs.. Fires eventually raged while President Obama addressed the nation, and rest became a blip in history. Another tale of race relations that will be taught in history books–depending on who writes them and what century a teacher picks to teach..

Seasons greetings, indeed..
A season of hell, a season of turbulence and crisis.. a season without reason..

That is what it seems like we are living in right now.

Rage without reason..
Treason in this season,
Greetings from Ferguson,
But who will stop the bleeding?

There was one other piece of oddity today from the news.. Darren Wilson, in a part of his testimony to a grand jury that eventually say no reason to go further in prosecuting the police office, said that Michael Brown looked like a demon during their scuffle. 

Demons and villains. |
The media’s ratings were high covering it all–until the media had the crowd turn on them, of course..they backed down when the burning began..

Demons..




The season that greets us is starting early this year. Shopping will begin early.
Thanksgiving is virtually nonexistent at this point. No time for family or friends, kinship is dead.. The season is here, and it is happening soon..

People often lament the fact that Thanksgiving has lost its meaning, with material possessions winning over the turkeys every time..

People will line up, waiting for store doors to bust open.. They will trample people from sea to shining sea. There will be news blips and articles about people being hurt, perhaps even the Black Friday death count website will tally up the wreckage by day’s end.. and what will we gain from it? Nothing.

Absolutely nothing. Except of course a few pieces of foreign made products that found a home instead of a trash heap.

We will not care much about the personal embarrassment we should feel acting like wild loons rampaging a store for a possession..

And for all of those people who say the looting in Ferguson is reprehensible, they will be doing their own brand of looting come Black Friday, when they violently rummage through store shelves, shoving others out of the way, and getting their deals. Or steals..




Is there a dark and sinister force at play on this planet?
Perhaps a deep and dark underbelly of demonic action on Earth.
Maybe the fires that burn in the city of Ferguson are a symbol of the burning to come.. the PURGING to come..

Purging has been the theme of the year. PURGE fears have abounded many times over across the Internet… while no purge occurred, the ‘purge’ style violence in Ferguson seems to be the culmination of affairs. Other comparisons have been made to the HUNGER GAMES.

There was also a year of false faces–clowns have been abundant throughout the world. Fraudulent smiles painted on men in France, and California, and other places around the planet. The clown phenomenon seemingly has waned since Halloween came and left us, but the darkness that they seem to have represented did not. It’s still there, alive and well.. OR dead and from hell. Take your pick.




The gates of hell opened. We have been told that many times over through pop culture references and even the Vice President of the United States. The gates of hell, unleashed ..

The final seasonal greeting tonight comes in the form of a fire and killing. A teenager, African American, was found shot to death.. a bullet was placed through his head. He was also burned.. This happened in Ferguson.  He was found close to the apartments where Michael Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson.. At this point, police say that the killing is suspicious.. It surely sounds like it is.

But these are suspicious times. Very serious times, as well.

We have a number of opinions from a number of people who were not on the scene as to what happened between Michael Brown and Darren Wilson.  And we have formed opinions.. So many have based their feelings on racism.. The word thug is being used as code.. We know that. And on the flip side, family members of Brown began screaming to ‘burn the bitch down’ after Wilson was exonerated..

This is the 2014 seasonal greetings.. From hell.
Merry Christmas from demons..
The gates of hell, decorated with blood and murder, and complete with mistletoe. Have a final kiss on Satan.

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…
