Storm iClouds brewing

A few years ago, I got into a deep conversation with a techie about the coming of the ‘cloud’ computing. He didn’t like it, not one bit. His doubts about the cloud stemmed from his paranoia over big government spying, but more importantly, hackers hacking.

This weekend his nightmare vision he relayed to me came to fruition. Too bad the Hollywood elite who have their naked bodies plastered all over the internet never talked to my lowly paid computer friend. They may have thought twice..

A hacker published Jennifer Lawrence nude on 4CHAN today.. yes, 4chan, the site that constantly guides the internet into new territory.
But even more alarming; The hacker claims to have more private pictures from more than 100 A-list celebrities who apparently have been busily putting nude images of themselves into their safe clouds..  This from Josie Ensor in the London TELEGRAPH today:


An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s phone, and those of more tha…

Behind the scenes.. and deep in the mind

Remember, during that horror movie you’re watching, it is all just make believe.

If you still don’t believe it, consider this: Behind the scenes photographs of horror flicks ..Hannibal Lector eating not flesh, but a french fry.. Michael Myers enjoying a Dr. Pepper.. And yes, even the gang ‘chillin’ with Freddy K..



A lot of the behind the scenes images are fun and frivolous, but one stood out to me as a little more painful, a little deeper: Heath Ledger, alone, walking with the JOKER mask in hand.



A little interesting side note on that Joker mask used. In the 1960s, Ceser Romero starred in one of the BATMAN shows, called THE JOKER IS WILD. During a scene in the program, Romero is wearing that same clown mask before it is taken off and his true identity is revealed to the viewing television audience. The homage by the use of that mask was to Romero’s version of the villain.. 

The BUZZFEED list   is a great way to pass the time, have a few chuckles, and see some irony. There’s even an image …

Famous summer last words

The annual tradition: The playing of the Famous Last Words song by Billy Joel.. I have linked up this song yearly this weekend for as  as I have had a web presence.. It’s doubly fun this time of year: Autumn is in the air, and it’s my birthday. But as I get older and older, each year’s birthday aspect becomes less enjoyable than the previous 12 months ..

I am 34 now.. the show’s not over but it’s ‘halfway’ home for my caboose.

The most poignant words, in my opinion , of this song (besides ‘comfort in a coffee cup, apples in the early fall’) are these: ‘They swept away all the streamers after the Labor Day parade. There’s nothing left for a dreamer now only one final serenade.’

With summer ending.. and the cold winds ready to invade, I wish some streamers would just be left on the streets.. a little longer.. another day.

TERROR SCARE

The FOX news report you can’t see to decide
War and rumors of war, as the September 11 anniversary approaches, now new rumors abound online.

Click through to this link, it is from a website that clearly delves deep into conspiracy theory. ;

Before you discount it out of hand, take a look at the cashed versions of the FOXNews website that it presents.. If what I see is true, it appears that FOXNews has been doing test runs and fake reporting on a September 11, 2014 attack within the United States by the militant group ISIS..

Are you seeing the same thing, are you looking at the same screen caps from the FOXNews website?

Users across the Internet are now scouring any versions of old Fox news reports they can find showcase that the company published this fake story more than one time, another cached version looks like it was in there:http://verumetinventa.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/hacked-or-legit-fox-news-leaks-next-false-flag-attack-9112014/ on the FOX weekly site..

FINKE AND THE STINK

It’s inside baseball Hollywood style, but I am fascinated by the Nikki Finke/Deadline.com drama that has developed over the years.. if you don’t know Finke, she owns Hollywood with insults and exclusives.. she began DEADLINE.COM, and then someone came along and bought it.. she left and started her own site—nameed Nikkifinke.com of course..

Then came a legal dispute.. and then this: Apparently, on Thursday much of the new website was taken after another website, “NikkieStink.com,” published rarely seen photos and videos of Finke. It promised to publish even more if Finke didn’t stop insulting people in Hollywood.. Finke has still maintained some activity on Twitter.

Whoever owns NikkiStink.com also bought a .net and .org.

NIKKISTINK reminded us of some of the ‘nasty’ comments that Finke has broadcast in the past. Among them (and try NOT to laugh):
Nathan Fillion: “If he gets any fatter, he’s going to need his own channel”

Kate Hudson: “Someone give Kate a cookie: I know the mags said she wa…

A comedian known as death

Joan Rivers: Coma or comfortable?
This is a developing story tonight..

TMZ was the first to report that Joan Rivers stopped breathing during a throat surgery..

Tonight, the UK DAILY MAIL is running its own breaking news that Rivers has been placed in a medically induced coma.. her family, we are told in reports, anxiously await by her bedside.

But another news report from REUTERS simply says she is resting comfortably..

Rivers should be given privacy, as should her family.. This report is obviously newsworthy, but I hesitated linking it since …really… shouldn’t this be private for her and her close friends and relatives? I think so..

But she’s a star.. And she has never washed up, regardless of time or age.. She is ‘on’ all of the time. She was ‘on’ on Wednesday, where she performed standup for a small group..

I keep mentally coming back to this report, though, from the DAILY NEWS:
“She did a joke onstage, she goes, ‘I’m 81 — I could go at any moment,’” recounted Shade Rupe, 45, who attended …

UFOs over Harrisburg PA

Harrisburg Woman and Police Say They Saw a UFO »
The Pennsylvania woman who captured an unidentified flying object on her cell phone camera says she is, “scared to death now.”
It surely does look a bit odd.. Especially when military facilities nearby say no flight activity would have been taking place on that night..

The city of Harrisburg also say this object—more than just the woman being profiled by ABC NEWS and GOOD MORNING AMERICA..

Eyewitnesses to the event say the object was not moving and was changing colors .. 911 calls were made, police saw it when they arrived on scene… The National Guard said it wasn’t them..

I believe that this is a UFO—by definition any ‘unidentified flying object’ is a UFO.. But the fact that people are seeing this more than one night, and nights in a row in certain instances, tells me that we have two possibilities: A drone. Or … something ‘out there’..

THE ROB SCHNEIDER EFFECT..

Let me first say this.. I have no clue where the truth on this story is.. There are multiple sources reporting about ‘unnamed sources’ and multiple people stating those unnamed sources aren’t real.  The crowd that thinks vaccines cause autism are being accused of libel and propoganda. The people who think vaccines never cause any problems are being accused of ignoring blatant evidence of CDC lies. It’s convoluted..often crazy.. and now being graced by the inclusion of the one and only Rob Schneider.
The group Focus Autism released a press release boasting they found out dramatic news concerning an MMR link to autism..

Then a story appeared in Global Research stating that the US Centers for Disease Control were involved with covering up a higher incidence of autism in African Americans..  That report quoted ‘unnamed’ sources from the CDC, a whistleblower, saying that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autis…

BIG SCREEN BIGFOOT

Get ready.. Get set…

It may not be the most original movie, but the BLAIR WITCH makers are back.. this time with a film trailer for the movie EXISTS..

The first official trailer was just released a few days back.. Already the tens of thousands of people who watched it are fiercely debating whether it’s worth the time, if Bigfoot should have been shown in the clip, and even if BLAIR WITCH was that good after all.

Personally, I thought the real summer hit the year BLAIR WITCH came out was THE SIXTH SENSE. However, Blair Witch did change everything: It make movies cheaper, easier to create, and much much more “POV” in style.

But.. it is high time for a BIGFOOT horror movie to be made.

And this Bigfoot in EXISTS is no HARRY from the Henderson family..



AND ANYWAY…doesn’t Eduardo Sanchez know that Bigfoot is interdimensional.. Amway?

What say you, all, fearless small feeters?

Weird tales of snakes and curses

More weird news making real headlines
I have written recently about my fascination with stories that ultimately are of the ‘paranormal’ making headlines in mainstream publications.. Today shows us another example of the increasing paranormal-ification of the daily news: Roberto Calderoli, a Senator from Italy, put a request in to the Pope: He wants an exorcism.. 

Tom Kington in Rome, reporting for the The LONDON TELEGRAPH writes, this:
At a ceremony last year attended by Miss Kyenge’s father, Clement Kikoko Kyenge, in his home village, a prayer was said in which God was asked to free Mr Calderoli from evil thoughts. A photo of Mr Calderoli was then placed before an altar dedicated to the ancestors of the village, and the same request made.

But this month Mr Calderoli said a series of misfortunes he has incurred since then – including six hospital operations, the death of his mother, two broken fingers and two broken veterbrae – proved he had actually been cursed by Mr Kyenge.
And more:

EXTRA EXTRA: Newspaper reporters at the UK TIMES about to brainwashed into thinking print matters »
Almost as if the digital revolution never happened, the newsroom of The Times once again resounds to the clatter of the old-fashioned typewriter.
It is going to happen at Rupert Murdoch’s the UK TIMES.. so now when reporters are free in between their phone hacking (oh that was a while ago I guess..) they are going to be able to place themselves in the past: Back when typewriters worked magic and print was alive and well..

Reporters at the TIMES were surprised to see a tall speaker in the newsroom blasting out the sounds of typewriters.. the INDEPENDENT reports that it has been set up to increase that adrenaline rush for reporters to motivate themselves to the deadline.. get the ‘big breaking news’ first.. Apparently the sound begins with one typewriter.. and as the paper gets ready to go to print, the noise level has been increased to a flurry if not landslide of typewriters noises clackin…

THE FLASH ABOVE AND THE SHAKING BELOW

Some Bay Area Residents Report Mysterious Flashes In The Sky During Napa Quake »
Several people called the KPIX 5 newsroom after Sunday morning’s magnitude 6.0 earthquake in Napa, reporting mysterious flashes of light in the sky. Witnesses said the strange phenomenon looked like lightning.
This is actually very normal—there seem to be reports around the world similar to this very incident. The CBS affiliate in San Francisco wrote this,
Friedemann Freund, a scientist with the SETI Institute in Mountain View, said the same thing happened during Sunday morning’s earthquake. And it wasn’t a transformer blowing up or UFOs.

“What they are, are a consequence of the stresses building up deep below the earth, seven miles like in the case of the Napa Valley earthquake,” Freund told KPIX 5.
Earthquake lights are an interesting phenomena.

The BBC ran a good report on the strange occurrences.. At that time, scientists were opening their minds to the possibility that these quakes happen with 5.0s are gre…

The Satanic Black Mass is a go in Oklahoma City

This story had my attention for several weeks now.. the ongoing battle between the satanic group at the Catholic Church has been heated.
An Oklahoma-based satanic group called Dakhma of Angra Mainyu has leased space in the Civic Center Music Hall, which is owned and operated by the city, for a black mass on Septetember the 21st 2014.. The Catholic Church and a number of other Christian organizations attempted to stop it..

Just today we found out this: The archbishop of Oklahoma City has dropped his lawsuit trying to stop the group from hosting their mass. Apparently they returned consecrated communion hosts back to the Church.. They were planning on desecrating the hosts during their service..

This from Christine Rousselle of TOWN HALL:
While Archbishop Coakley is glad that the group no longer plans to desecrate the Eucharist, he is still urging the city to cancel the event as it is greatly offensive to the quarter of a million Catholics who reside in Oklahoma.

Weird tales and beheaded animals across the world

Beheaded Goat, Other Dead Animals Found in Westchester »
A beheaded goat and several other dead animals have been found in plastic bags near a New York reservoir.
Beheadings seemingly are happening everywhere.. ISIS.. Saudi Arabia.. New York..

The Westchester county SPCA is investigating the headless goat and other animals found in New York.. Many of the animals found were beheaded.

Earlier in August, there were mutilated and beheaded cats found in Philadelphia .. not only there, but there were also severed cats heads found in the UK..

Also .. this has been happening for a bit of time.. Back in May 2014, 25 dead cats were wrapped in plastic bags and hung from trees in Yonkers, NY..



Have those gates of hell really opened?
Are we seeing a global blood sacrifice of humans and animals? 

All your Googles are belong to us

Google has reportedly solved the problem tonight, but but when a weird image kept appearing on every search result today, it became a bit freaky..

Early today, people were wondering if Google was hacked to show a Russian car crash..

A number of searches, including ‘iPad air,’ were coming up with the strange image..

Reports actually came in from all across the planet Earth of the problem—but the oddity seemingly was that some people in the same building could not replicate what their co-workers were finding, as the Washington POST reported today..

While the glitch may be itched, there’s not much more to find out about it..

Hacked or not.. it was bizarre..

LOST GIRL done after 5 seasons

Syfy's 'Lost Girl' Ending After Fifth Season »
The show will end after its upcoming fifth season—even though ratings in Canada are high and the show has a dedicated following in the United States. Fans flocked to LOST GIRL and it became a sensation with a cult following who spend time reading and writing fan fiction, and Tweeting live during programs.. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER reports,
Showcase ordered 16 episodes for season five, to be split into two parts. The first eight episodes will start airing on Showcase on December 7, with the second batch to air in fall 2015. Syfy did not indicate when the fifth season will air on its network.
My wife is also very upset about this…it was her favorite show for four seasons..  The only thing I could say to console her is that I went through the same thing when Art Bell retired. And retired. And retired. And retired. And retired. Good thing for her fangirl series: There will only be one series finale.

And come to think of it...

THE FORGOTTEN SCREAM QUEEN

ESCAPIST picks: The Scream Queens: 4 Actresses Who Defined A Horror Genre »
Marilyn Burns—RIP. I agree.. a legend..

Jamie Lee Curtis, another agreeable selection by the ESCAPIST.

Janet Leigh from PSYCHO.. Good pick, didn’t think of that one.

But the fourth should have been one of the best: Heather Langenkamp from NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.. I often think her role as Nancy defined the 1980s comeback kick and set into motion a generation of feminist strength. I am serious about that.. I believe she was an inspiration for a lot of girls.. Her roles in the Freddy films she appeared in should never be forgotten..



Doesn’t get any better than Nancy..

THOSE BLUE SKY BLUES

The weather is perfect today here in my home town.. the low 80s, no humidity.. perfectly blue sky with no chemtrails in sight.

It must have been really insulting as kids headed off for their first day of school of the 2014/15 year.

I myself recall these days, back in the grind of high school, sweating through 7th period and hating every minute of the walk home in heat.

But as you get older, you appreciate this warmth.. the winter begins to set in.. and the cold hurts. It bites at you like it’s sucking away life and time …

But today is beautiful.. Just amazing. Unless you’re on a big yellow bus coming home from hell.

MOVING AND SHAKING

Since the big 6.0 San Francisco earthquake this weekend, there have been 125 North Bay quakes--and counting..

Most have been small, some not felt.. The biggest was a 3.6 that happened hours after the initial shaking.

While aftershocks are normal, this has rattled an area that has not felt shaking like this for some time---and it's little comfort to hear this: The USGS says there's a 5% chance of bigger shaking to come..

CASE OF THE MONDAYS

QUAKES AND CREATIVITY: THE WORLD AFTER THE 666 MTV AWARDS
Did anyone catch the Beyonce 20-minute monstrosity last night on the MTV awards? Fans are going wild for her performance on Twitter--people practically are bowing down and giving their souls over to Sasha Fierce. But I myself didn't really get it, nor get into it.. There was the awkward moment when Jay-Z brought their adorable child on stage--awkward only because tabloid rags tell us there's a chance that Z and Fierce may soon move to splitsville.

Back to the badly lip-synced performance: The Associated Press is telling us to "bow down" to Beyonce.  The AP music writer gushed, "Beyonce sang and danced in a metallic leotard while Blue Ivy and Jay Z watched from their seats as the diva declared: "MTV, welcome to my world.."

Some believe we've been in their world for quite a while--the world of Illuminati influences and choreographed creepiness.

And if you felt a little weird watching the VMAs on M…

THE WITCHING HOUR EARTHQUAKE IN THE NAPA VALLEY

A 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit the northern San Francisco Bay area early Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Twitter lit up with images of people’s wine collections broken on kitchen floors, but there does not appear to be much more damages than that.. Extensive kitchen appliances hit, but buildings remain intact—compared to what could have been, the Napa valley (wine central) can count itself lucky.

No reports of injuries…
Some power outages--42,000 people in the immediate aftermath of the quake..

But lots of jittery people being woken up at the witching hour. 3:20am on the left coast.

And perhaps a lesson and reminder of fright to come. There is always the chance of a big quake hitting. With such fault tension lately, the pressure needs to release somewhere..

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT

Fault lines..dormant for years. More like generations. Actually centuries.. actually over one million years.. And then they move.

When the initial reports of the quake occurred, Twitter was alive and well posting images of broken wine bottles and shattered kitchens. It did not immediately appear to be too much to handle---then more news started streaming of injuries and structural failure. Late in the day, KFBK in California reported this:
Reports from Vacaville described a shake enough to wake people from sleep, and one from South Sacramento, in the Pocket area described a slow steady rumble, that shook blinds in the home.

More than 170 injuries have been reported. A child was crushed by a toppling fireplace and there is no word yet of the child's condition. Six orthopedic type injuries and several heart attacks have been reported. Three patients are in surgery. 
The sudden movement of the fault caused damages and injuries--but even more so, it shattered the nerves of an area that di…

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.

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?

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..
