THE CLOCK TICKS.. SUMMER ENDS.. SCHOOL BEGINS

SEASONS BEGIN.. AND END.. Summer set to go.. Fall ushers in the winds of change.. Schools are filled again..
I wrote this back in March of this year along with the cartoon posted of a new tree limb going into a classroom.. It’s interesting to note that originally, this cartoon implicated that there was a positive in the Axe, molding students into identical pieces of wood..

I wrote this in March:
This is a piece of art from the Internet I found.. no clue as to its origins or who created it—I’d give credit if I knew. But I just love it.. Who DIDN’T feel like this as they walked into school classrooms each morning? And for those still in school who are reading this, I felt this way too. I fear my son, only age 3, will one day be thinking the same thoughts.. so often it feels like a big PINK FLOYD song as you go through your childhood. There seems to be so many adults who are dead set on ruining a kid’s dream or stomping down imagination.. There are teachers, parents, bus drivers, and princi…

THE VOLCANO YOU CANNOT PRONOUNCE IS READY TO BLOW

Here is a LIVE Youtube stream of the Barðarbunga  volcano in Iceland.. For those who don’t know, an eruption of it may have begun..  Although the latest update from the scene has some wondering if it really has..The LIVESCIENCE report says that there appears to be no indication of volcanic activity..

It’s worth noting, mainly for this: A few days back, there were fears of an ‘explosive’ volcanic eruption.. earthquakes rocked the volcano.. Also this today: The BBC reported a ‘red alert’ was issued by Iceland—and there are lots of concerns that air travel will be highly hit..



Sadly, as this event occurs, the one problem that people may have: Pronouncing the name of the Volcano. Luckily SLATE thought about that a few days ago too, and gave us a link to another source on the way you should say the word..

We’ll just stick to say the big Iceland volcano. That is safe..

VILLAGE IN REAL LIFE: THE HERMIT IN THE WOODS

FROM GQ: The Strange Tale of the North Pond Hermit »
For nearly thirty years, a phantom haunted the woods of Central Maine, creeping into homes, and surviving on what he could steal. He became a legend. Then one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest. His name was Christopher Knight
And this is him:



While it may seem tough to believe, the story is true..

This from GQ:
His name, he revealed, was Christopher Thomas Knight. Born on December 7, 1965. He said he had no address, no vehicle, did not file a tax return, and did not receive mail. He said he lived in the woods.
Everything that he ate and used was apparently stolen..

The oddest part of all to fathom: He says he didn’t speak a word the entire time, besides once in the 1990s when he passed a hiker on a path in the forest and he said a simple ‘hi’ ..

And now all of the paranormal fears and strange occurrences that haunted this part of central Maine for decades may very well be solved. No ghost.. no UFO.. no beast from the East.. I…

THE MARKET VALUE OF HORROR

How the Market Affects What Horror Makes it to Hollywood »
Recent torture pornographers such as Eli Roth arguably have aligned themselves with 1970s American horror auteurs not only to legitimize their work but to cash in on their rebel credibility.
The NEW REPUBLIC article is an interesting way to follow up on my previous essay written earlier this week about horror movies.. I actually made the point that horror movies, in general, are a lot less scary in our current reality—and even more, who wants to look at torture porn films and slasher gore galore when you can turn on the nightly news and see edited versions of beheading videos and then download the real deal yourself should you wish to..?

The NEW REPUBLIC article follows how the market—and current events—lead to the horror we see in cinema..  Author Yo Zushi writes,
It wasn’t long before horror directors such as Eli Roth were claiming that their work could trace a direct lineage to the “war on terror”. “I really try to load up the …

Mess with the Boa, get the bite

Eventually fate catches up with someone.

NICKI MINAJ gave us lots of classic hits that will never be played 10 years from now.. her latest achievement is ANACONDA.

During a rehearsal for the MTV music awards, one of her dancers got a Boa Constrictor BITE.. imagine the scene, as reported:
The dancer’s fellow performers looked on in fright as the giant snake slithered to the woman and bit her. Boa constrictors don’t strike unless they feel threatened, so many believe that the woman had unintentionally startled the animal.
I wonder if Nicki’s fake voice screamed in shock!? I wonder if they broke out into a musical interlude while they waited for the medics to arrive..

I wonder if someone thought to themselves: If only this would have happened live, it would have far surpassed the 2013 Miley Cyrus gyration on stage.

Not that Nicki would ever put a valued dancer in danger……
No animals were hurt in the rehearsal of this program. But a dancer was.

THE SPACEX HEX

Things didn’t go well for private space exploration Friday. This is a Space-X rocket. It self-detonated after an ‘unexplained malfunction,’ causing the explosion in the blue sky..

The flight was a test run..The video of the explosion can be seen here.

Space-X issued a statement regarding the explosion, saying in part that they were pushing the limits further than any other tests..

But what no one, including this company, wants to happen: This with wealthy affluent space explorers on board..

WINTER+TROPICS=AUGUST

Two news events taking place in the weather department today.. First off, there is a possibility that the storm, Cristobal, will become a threat to the United States next week..MORE HERE. Notable news: Most models are not taking this towards New Orleans or New York City as they were previously, but some have it dangerously close to the East Coast.. while others have a Florida impact. Models will soon come together..until then it’s anyone’s guess.

But what is not a guess: Montana and Wyoming are bracing for SNOW! That’s right.. winter beginning before the fall even happens for these two states.. It’s not a sign of the end of the world—but it’s about three weeks ahead of schedule.

I think too often we look at weather anomalies and scream “proof” of climate Armageddon



Nonetheless: the models are having a mood swing.

WITH A SPLASH OF LIGHTNING...

Give some credit to the Russians.. This is a lightning bolt that was used to start the Soviet Era Tesla Tower.. It’s been dormant for some time. But now the little ‘Tesla Tower is complete,’ as said in a voice of Emperor Palpatine.

The video here.. Amazing.

A POEM FOR THE END TIMES

If things don’t seem real, maybe they’re not..
Sometimes you feel you’re a part of a play.. an act.. a movie.. or a stunt. Maybe you are..
Battle bombs an war bonds,
Dirty wars and porn..
The gambling addicts are playing
With the lives of unborn..

We’re all a part of a big grand plan..
But the plan is shrouded in secrecy..

When things seem scary, and you turn to fright,
The solution may be laughing with all your might..

Because power brokers aim to scare,
Battle scars of truth.. they shall wear.

We don’t know the masters, but we sure know the slaves..
We are confused by the aims, which is why we behave..

As the summer wanes and the cold begins,
Think to these days…let’s pray truth wins.

FREAKY FRIDAY

This world is a little disgusting, disheartening, and distasteful. But was it ever different than now? I watched an amazing documentary on some of the suffering in Nazi death camps during World War II--the kinds being suffered by soldiers instead of Jewish citizens of Europe. It was disturbing.

The one thing that I always find amazing when looking in the annals of the trash heap called history: The bad guys always run in fear.. regardless of the dictatorship or totalitarian belief system, when the liberators show up, the bad guys always seem to head for the hills.. In the WWII documentary, the Nazi abusers ran for the mountains and even biked away when the Americans showed up. Of course, as fate would have it, the United States government eventually let a lot of those Nazis into the establishment of government to help the United States..

There never has been justice on this planet, either..

But for now, it's the FEARFUL FRIDAY news roundup.. The people and events making headlines fro…

NO BUTTS ABOUT HER

This is the cover of THE SPIDER-WOMAN #1 COMIC BOOK..  Regardless of your gender, there’s probably one thing you are initially fixated on, and it’s not her face mask.. It’s that large rear end protruding high into the city sky.. And it’s for that butt shot that it’s also causing a rise of controversy..In fairness, a not safe for work Spider MAN appeared this year, too, but that was removed after complaints. In this instance the comic may be bought up in some big numbers by the teenage boys that it may be aiming for. Just a thought.. Sometimes controversy equals sales.. In this matter, a rump roast of comics await..

Asymmetric Instigations

Asymmetric Solutions goes to Facebook to talk about their Ferguson work »
This has been very controversial—especially since this company has assisted in operations in war torn nations in the Middle East. Some felt uncomfortable with their newfound role in Ferguson. Addrressing those concerns, someone authored a lengthy response on the company’s Facebook page, which in part says this:
We were not hired to work for the state, for the police, to work as peacekeepers, mercenaries, cops for hire, etc. We have done similar personal bodyguard and high risk logistics work with journalists who are interested in reporting from hostile areas all over the world.

We normally do not comment on this side of our work. At suggestion of our client who felt our position was unique, our public message was one of frustration that someone who would typically call upon us to escort them to Baghdad, Kabul, etc. would feel the need to ask us to take them into a suburb of St. Louis, our own wonderful city. It is …

Horror movies in a time when reality is far scarier

There is something wrong with the world today.. while we say we don't know what it is, we do .. Human.. And the eventual totalitarian government that rises.. or the genocide that somehow always takes place. Why can't we just let our children sleep in peace at night? Why can't we let people live and let live.. why does religion have to lead to so ma
ny ruined landscapes and torn apart families? Why, in the 21st century, are we still seeing barbarism and mass murder play out before our eyes..? Why are we worried  over 'purges' in American cities? Why are people rising up against police? Why are we seeing the unraveling of the American spirit? Why does the President golf ... so much..? So many things seem to be off kilter--like a timeline jumped from one to the other.. or maybe it's the pole shift that we know is happening?
Perhaps the electric universe is having an electrical fire.. Either way, whether it's beheadings, riots, Ebola, or death, this world is a ve…

MORNING NEWS WRAP AUGUST 21 2014

Thursday ..
News..

All for your reading displeasure.. Links from around the world and beyond..

FARMERS ALMANAC predicting extreme cold winter..


Weather watching.. this is Cristobal--he does not exist yet.. but he's expected to form and get really, really close to the East coast next week.. Or maybe the Gulf Coast.. or maybe no where. There is extreme inconsistency with the storm, models had it hitting Ne Orleans yesterday.. some have it missing.. and now this has it near Jersey and New York City by August 29.. As said yesterday: Keep tuned to the models being posted by users on the Accuweather forum..

Yesterday it was reported that Twitter users dispalying grisly photographs of the beheading of James Foley would be suspended.. today we learn that even though they did too the NEW YORK POST and DAILY NEWS will not be..

Foley's captors initially asked for big ransom.. we didn't give them money, but often the UK did for other hostages.. Something that has helped enrich ISIS..

WEDNESDAY WEIRDNESS

A few other Wednesday weirdness news bits and bites from the land of the free and the earth beyond..

Presented in living HTML for your enjoyment, discernment, and good natured acceptance.

Enjoy. Or disbelieve. You be the judge..

A sick story from Philadelphia, the city that was once called that of Brotherly Love.. Mutilated cats are showing up on people's doorsteps. One says it's gruesome.. another says sick.. No word on why but police are actively investigating..


It's a bad day for cats: Severed cat heads also being found in UK..

The world that we live in: A South Carolina 16-year-old was ARRESTED for writing a fictional Facebook post about killing dinosaurs with a gun..

The Ebola nightmare in Liberia may soon look like a chapter from the book THE STAND.. forces have a 'slum' sealed off.. Some believe it's population control to eliminate an entire village of Ebola patients.. There is also fear that a patient being treated in San Fran has the virus..

Good read: Ebola …

The Jinn and mental disorders

Supernatural 'Jinn' Seen as Cause of Mental Illness Among Muslims »
This could be a symptom of a culture widely believing in paranormal phenomenon.. Muslims, it’s reported in this study, believe that the supernatural Jinn are attributing to their mental illnesses when they have them. Scientists and astute psychologists obviously say that the Jinn, since they aren't real, cannot be doing this and culturally Muslims have simply been conditioned by their religious backgrounds to perceive the Jinn as being the reason for their problems.

Of course, if the Jinn were real, that would throw off the findings..

Nonetheless, here’s a money quote and conclusion of why certain cultures are haunted by certain entities:

Across societies, beliefs in the supernatural as well as other aspects of culture may influence how mental disorders manifest, the study said. Previous research has found that people with schizophrenia may experience different delusions depending on their cultures. For exampl…

KATRINA'S ANNIVERSARY MAY BE MARKED WITH ANOTHER NEW ORLEANS HURRICANE?

This is a story worth paying close attention to.. If you look at the map, check the city of New Orleans.. this forecast is being made for August 28 2014. The same date as another famous hurricane hit, Katrina in 2005. Could this be a repeat? The path looks frighteningly the same.. The factors are obvious subject to change, and a hurricane may not necessarily strike in the same fashion —or strength. But this map encourages negative thoughts about the near future in that area..

Here is another forecast map from the Canadian run..

You're not crazy: The buzz above

While it's not the first time black helicopters have swirled above American cities in training exercises, it's getting renewed attention after Minnesota oddities surprised unknowingly citizens below..

CBS WCCO4 REPORTED IT THIS WAY:






The money quote:
The Department of Defense is in charge of the operation while Minneapolis and St. Paul police are playing a supportive role. But none of the departments will comment on the mysterious mission, only apologizing for “any alarm or inconvenience the training may cause,” according to statement by Minneapolis police.

But some don't think these exercises are not only beyond normal but also inappropriate..

Different people may judge it differently.. But what's clear: Get ready to see more American military might over a city near you.

ALL THINGS COME IN THREES

Strange times.. strange coincidences.. Weird timing. And bad things coming in threes..

It's obvious that Americans are fixated on Ferguson.. the Middle East is trying to escape the clutches of genocide and grotesque videos of reporters getting beheaded.. But all the while, a few oddly-timed events occurred within hours of themselves involving Pope Francis. The HORROR REPORT's fin toil hat took notice, and we immediately recalled a supposed prophecy from long ago..

The HORROR REPORT has written extensively on the Prophecy of the Popes--the alleged time table written by St. Malachy that gave us the prediction for all popes up until the end, the end being "Peter the Roman." While Cardinal Bergoglio did not choose Peter as his papal name, and he was celebrated as the first 'Latin American' pope, it's interesting to note that his origins are in Italy. Even more, while Francis was picked, the HORROR REPORT noted in November 2013 that Pope Francis continues to rem…

ISIS HORROR: BEHEADING VIDEO RELEASED, AND A NEW THREAT UNLEASHED

ISIS has released a video of journalist James Wright Foley, 40, being beheaded.. the video is graphic and cruel, with Foley stating that the United States government is his real killer.. The ISIS member, who speaks with a British accent, threatens President Obama and brings another reporter, Steven Scotloff, before the camera at the unknown location..

The President has been made aware of the video, reports indicate, as he flew back to his vacation.. Additionally, the Foley family has been said to be consumed by horrid grief at the news tonight..

This is how REUTERS reported the news in its dispatches tonight from Baghdad:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Islamic State militants claimed in a video on Tuesday to be holding U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff and said his life depended on U.S. President Barack Obama's next move.
"The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision," said a masked man in the video posted on social media sites, speaking English with a British a…

A VOICE SILENCED

Don Pardo is dead at 96..

You may not know him by his face, but you would definitely know him by his voice. He was the longtime voice of Saturday Night Live, only missing one season throughout the entirety of the programs lifespan.

He is done a number of other voice over jobs, you may also recognize him from the program Jeopardy..

Television may not be the same without him, regardless of how bad or good Saturday Night Live was, his voice being the mainstay and permanent fixture of the program was comforting..

May he rest in peace..

THE IS IS KNOCKING?

This happened during a cnn interview last night in Ferguson.. During live coverage of the protests, someone held up an ‘ISIS IS HERE’ banner for cameras to see..

A provocation of violence? A show of solidarity with terrorists? All a fraud to scare the nation?

We do know this: Many outsiders are attempting to hijack the message from Ferguson. Some want violence to drown out the important facts relative to the shooting of Michael Brown..

That may be what this ISIS sign is intended to do..

Or .. They are here ..

When you kick the ice bucket

So many tries.. so many fails.
By now your newsfeed has been slammed with ‘ice bucket challenges.’ I have gotten into some heated discussion with fellow humans about whether this is just a egocentric trip into nonsense territory or if the ice bucket idea actually generates attention for ALS..

Nonetheless, there’s been a whole slew of fails in the ice bucket category.. Some of them have been monumental. This video attempts to capture some of the best..

Enjoy..

DIMENSION IS READY FOR THE NEXT ‘HALLOWEEN’.. BUT I DON’T THINK FANS ARE
Horror sites and movie message boards have been a buzz today after BLOODY DISGUSTING linked a SCHMOEKNOW report indicating that Dimension Films is ready for a new Halloween movie.. with a new Akkad..

It will be entitled HALLOWEEN: THE NEXT CHAPTER. Apparently it will be set for a fall 2015 release—imagine the first one came out in the late 1970s and we are STILL talking about the Michael Myers franchise *(amazing)*..

According to the report, too, Rob Zombie will not reprise his role as the official ruiner of something great.. No gorefest? not sure.. no storyline? maybe not.. But.. it’s going to be a ‘fresh’ take on the Zombie films. Whatever that may mean.

A new chapter, I guess..

The first thing I thought about the new film.. Didn’t we already have a slasher ‘chapter’ before? We did.. it was called FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER. Which was not the final chapter at all.. this new HALLOWEEN is the new Chapter.. And…

ERIC HOLDER IS TAKING OVER THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE DEATH OF MICHAEL BROWN.. BUT TONIGHT, AS THIS STORY IS WRITTEN, MORE TENSION IS BEING SEEN IN THE TOWN OF FERGUSON, MISSOURI..

News networks are finally covering the story as they should have for the first several days.. While they played reruns of daytime shows, Ferguson was ablaze in anger and protest.. now that the TEE VEE news teams showed up, as slightly referenced here, the behavior of reporters is a bit off.. Perhaps some unseasoned journos are a little uncomfortable that a real news story is taking place before their eyes. There's no green screen to seperate them from the reality of tension in the town of Ferguson..

GHOST COFFEE with Megan Fox

Megan Fox Believes in Everything Paranormal »
In a recent interview, Megan Fox revealed that she is a strong believer of paranormal activities.
In an MTV interview, the Hollywood star who often bares everything down to the thumbs spoke about her belief in all things strange and paranormal—Bigfoot and UFOs, and everything in between..

On aliens, Fox asked:
If they are a more advanced species, why would we be able to find them if they don’t want to be found?
On ghosts:

She never saw one, but said someone—or something—poured her a cup of coffee while she was out of the room in a hotel. She said no one else was there.. But coffee was ready..

It’s assumed that you’ll most likely immediately forget the FOX paranormal logic when you see this:

LIFE AND DEATH DURING WARTIME

People in many parts of the world are watching the horror taking place in Iraq from the security of a safe home or a bunkered and paranoid basement.. But the horrors are all too real for families who have te misfortune of watching family members be killed at the hands of ISIS.. caught on video..uploaded in propooganda videos.. and forever in the annals of mass murder..

CNN interviewed the family of a man who was killed in June during an early ISIS killing spree .. The interview and information presented puts a face to the fear and name to the numbing geonicide taking place..

How many times in history such horror has occurred.. and how many more times is humanity cursed to watch it unfold again. We are seeing history before our eyes.
Living through history is painful.. dying because of it is revolting.



As the CNN reporter notes.. each murder conducted was casual. But each loss has been seismic.



FIRE BELOW. FIRE IN THE SKY ABOVE

A "UFO" has caught the attention of enthusiasts on the Internet after an object of some sort was caught on camera over the skies of Canada..

Neighbors to the North of America had a local news team covering a forest fire in the West Kelowna area of British Columbia.. A little over 30 seconds into the now popular video shows some type of object emerging from clouds.. It also leaves what appears to be a vapor trail behind it..

While we may not be watching actual aliens, the video is clear: Something is flying in the sky leaving a trail behind it--defining the object as a UFO..

A drone?
A really, really quick airplane?
Interdimensional beings getting an alien's eye view of a forest fire?
You be the judge..



The show of force

The events taking place in Ferguson Missouri are being watched by all states.. the national divide appears strong in some quarters of the country.. Racial tensions are exploding .. rage is developing like a summer heat wave of emotion and hate.. And charges of overreach are being hurled at Ferguson police over their use of Pentagon style weapons in the face of looters and protesters in the killing of Michael Brown.. Things progressed Sunday night into the chaos terriroty.. Governor Nixon is calling in the National Guard to secure a sense of order in a town consumed by anarchy and anger.. This latest turn of events taking place after a week and one day of protests, often coupled with tear gas and more..

However, though an important illustration of life and race relations in America at this time, the story taking place in Ferguson goes beyond just colors that are skin deep.. Something else is in clearer focus: Police actions throughout this nation..

There seems to be an increased presence…
