SOLO'S BUMPY RIDE TO THE BIG SCREEN!

CHERNOBYL FROM A DRONE



This is video of a drone flyover of the city of Chernobyl, Russia..I suppose we all know of the deadly and tragic history from the end of the 20th century..

Now, so many decades later—but no danger is gone—a drone captured chilling footage of the city of Pripyat, Ukraine. The city is stuck in time—people who were mandated to leave after the nuclear disaster in 1986 were told they’d be gone for three days. They never came back, but because the government lied to them, many of their personal possessions were simply left in place. The images from the drone were courtesy of Danny Cook, who went to Chernobyl to film the video for a CBS 60 MINUTES piece..

The video portrays an overgrown city.. vegetation is lush.. the radiated earth has taken over the streets capes..

The nightmare is nuclear catastrophe will not be over any generation soon.. But the remnants of what was are still cold, vacant, and seemingly chilling..

SONY PICTURES HACKED; MOVIES RELEASED ONLINE BY THE 'GUARDIANS OF PEACE'; INVESTIGATIONS NOW TO SEE IF NORTH KOREA WAS BEHIND THE HACK ATTACK IN REVENGE FOR COMEDY FILM!

THE READ: Sony's New Movies Leak Online Following Hack Attack »


This is a big deal in the entertainment world. Sony’s new movies have leaked onto the Internet after this hack.

At this moment, the story is still in the development stage.. but we know this, at least five new movies from Sony Pictures are now on file sharing websites across the internet.. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says this,
Copies of DVD screeners of four unreleased Sony movies including the upcoming “Annie” are getting some unwelcome early exposure, but nothing compared to the frenzy enveloping “Fury,” the war pic still in theaters since bowing last month.

“Fury” has been downloaded by over 888,000 unique IP addresses since showing up on peer-to-peer networks on Nov. 27, according to piracy tracking firm Excipio. That’s high enough to be the second most downloaded movie currently being pirated, and it’s not out of movie theaters yet.

Another big Sony movie, “Annie,” is also being pirated, this one three weeks ahead of its own wide release. Other Sony movies being downloaded include “Mr. Turner,” “Still Alice” and “To Write Love on Her Arms.”

Sony is not commenting yet.

The WRAP has this information this morning: Sony has been hacked by the #GOP group.No, not the Republican party, but instead a group called THE GUARDIANS OF PEACE.  The WRAP reports that every computer in the entire company has seemingly been compromised! MORE:

But as of Friday the studio’s email, phone system and computers remained paralyzed, and in some cases staffers were using whiteboards to get things done. The studio’s Twitter accounts have also been hacked, according to two individuals with knowledge of the situation.

And while the studio has set up a parallel system offline, there is apparently no solution that has been found to undo the attack.

The hack attack is more than just movies.. it’s stolen data of stars and their contracts..

Sony Struggles to Fight #GOP Hackers Who Claim Stolen Data Includes Stars' IDs, Budget and Contract Figures

But here is the kicker: SONY  is investigating the situation attempting to ascertain if NORTH KOREA may be behind the attack! According to various sources now, Sony is wondering if North Korea has funded the hackers.. REUTERS reports this connection to the SONY hack:
The attack occurred a month before Sony Pictures, a unit of Sony Corp, is to release “The Interview.” The movie is a comedy about two journalists who are recruited by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The Pyongyang government denounced the film as “undisguised sponsoring of terrorism, as well as an act of war” in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in June.

Did a movie propel a strange and cruel dictatorship to declare war on an American studio? There seems to be a connection..



But there are a few people online who are suggesting this is all just a ploy--that the computers at Sony are awful, maybe, and that a hack could have occurred.. but that the blame game of North Korea is just a part of the INTERVIEW marketing. Making the movie seem even more important on the geopolitical stage than it ever would have been..

I don't think SONY is faking a hack--too many people would be eager to call them out on that type of scenario.. But there is a chance that they are playing this in a way that could hopefully benefit their release of THE INTERVIEW in December..

But if it's real, would this be an act of war? Or does anyone way if actors’ IDs get stolen and lackluster movies get leaked?

 

This Sunday morning is coming down..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_WZeAGdrtQ

Normally  this weekly type of post is called the 'Sunday morning sidewalk' .. but today this Sunday morning is coming down..  The reason is not clear, but there is a deep concern in my heart about some personal issues that seem to be developing in my family. Let me explain without giving away personal secrets--I'm a 20th century boy and don't share my entire life..

My son has grown fond of saying that he "knows everything" as of late.. It brings comic relief when he proclaims it, but he is entirely serious about this.. He truly says he knows everything and means it. Ayden is not yet even 4, but year somehow he does surprise me with his knowledge..  At times I think he knows more than me! He has become a reservoir of my memory, even telling me at times where I put items that I lost.. Found thanks to his keen eye and ear always being aware..

But he does not know everything. None of us do..
What I fear more than anything this lonely and gray Sunday morning is that the things he does not know will hurt him the most..
I am speaking specific on something..
There are a number of people in my family and my wife's who are coming of age at a time where he will be growing into his later tens.. There is a chance that over the next decade, his life will be filled with funerals.. It scares me to ponder the thought that these eventual deaths will shatter his worldview in some way, but perhaps I am over thinking this..

Death is a fact of life. It happens to us all..
People all have their own way of dealing with events of this nature.. Children as well seem to put it into a perspective that works for them.

There is an even rougher edge to my thought on this.. The question of what God is.. whether God is.. and where he is.. I ask my son all of the time if he remembers where he was prior to being born.. as of yet he does not recall. I was hoping he'd tell me a pilot in war, or a child coal miner.. something specific and not relative to his life now, which could prove to me a reincarnation happens.  Every theory on life after death is not proven. Near death experiences could be the closest thing we have--but how many of them are real vs the brain just doing its fluttering prior to switching off..

I don't think of this all of the time. But I did last night mainly after seeing my parents struggle to decorate for Christmas.. My father already had a rendezvous with Death in December 2013 but survived.. However they are being aging in the same advanced way anyone who just turned 70 would..

I want to say, I am a happy parent. I am a nostalgic one however, with the first almost four years of Ayden's life skyrocketing through time and space, it's tough to get a breather and put into perspective the amazing ability a body has to age and develop.. The boy is amazing. He is absolutely my new best friend.. We play games, his play room shares a mini-office of mine.. Amazing stuff. And I have yet to really yell at him about anything important. Other parents remind me that it will change on that note, of course.. and I know it will. The parent hat will come on and he will one day tell me he hates me. I dread that moment.. But I will understand his rage is only skin deep.

What scares me more though is dealing with tragic life experiences, world upheaval, and personal crises.

About two weeks ago my wife was taking him to day care in the morning and they became stuck behind a tragic accident. There were two deaths.. My son still talks about it, reminding my wife and I about it .. He even became a back seat driver because of it, telling me to slow down or, as he says, 'drive the right way.'  He must know of the 3o'clock position taught in driver's ED classes..  Upon the sights and sounds of this wreck, he was told that the souls have gone to heaven. But he somehow knew that it meant in part they could 'not go home again.'  He seemed a little sad, and changed the subject to something more appealing...

There are things about parenting that are harder than any 3am feeding session during infancy.. Those skin deep things are just things.. The real things that matter are the emotions that come with growing, the deep pain that someone can suffer, and how to inspire a child to grow up understanding life and still enjoying it.

 

THE SILENT WEREWOLF SHOOTER

Something new to fear: The werewolf shooter..

You can read the full CNN report here..

Times are getting strange.. now a man in a werewolf suit silently walked into a store and shot a 58-year-old construction worker. There is a massive manhunt on.. FROM CNN: After the shooting, the assailant took off on foot. Despite an "exhaustive search," the gunman was nowhere to be found, Kelliher said... There is also no word on a motive. But the image is certainly creepy..

Truth and dating: Two creepy clips from the past to get under your skin

Reality is stranger than fiction..

Two blasts from the past can prove that, courtesy of users who have uploaded certain videos to YouTube.

Ed Edwards was a serial killer who murdered countless amounts of people around the United States. There is even a new book claiming that he may have been involved with the 1990s famed Jon Bonet Ramsey murder.. There are others who even believe that Edwards was the Zodiac Killer. But On October 17, 1972, Edward Wayne Edwards, the man we know was a mass murderer, appeared on the game show TO TELL THE TRUTH. He was a con man.. And clearly, even on this show, was telling things very far from the truth:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNW1JWq2oIc
x x x x

Rodney Alcala was another murderer and rapist who made a television debut on a game show in the 1970s..  A number of sexually explicit photographs of boys were also found, some of which could have been additional victims of him.. Alcala was also known as the DATING GAME killer, because that was the 1970s show he appeared on ..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Uf95INZmWI

There is something obviously very grisly and creepy about serial killers.. but match them up with obscure and equally creepy 1970s pop culture, and you have the ultimate of oddity and weirdness..

Keep in mind the brutality of these two people.. and couple that with the fact that their crimes had already been started by the point where they were able to get through background checks and be transmitted into living rooms across America..

The other question I often ponder based off of these two incidents: Are there people today, on modern game shows, who will one day be revealed to the world as the next horrid killer among us?

STAR WARS: THE MEMES AWAKEN

The internet is good for a few things: Cat GIFs and memes top the list as of late.. people from around the planet were quick to create a comedic goldmine of Kim Kardashian rear end jokes.. Now comes along the newest villain from the next in the STAR WARS franchise, and already creative minds have been inspired to think outside the box..

The first trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS debuted this Thanksgiving weekend.. after much anticipation, the biggest thing that people have seemingly latched onto is the newest light saber style for the Empire.. The Dark Side is back with the red color, but  the flames seem to make a letter T.. some compared it to a bizarre style of the cross, perhaps a the perversion of the trinity? A deeper message in the hooded figure walking in the forest?

As for me? I like it.. It surprised me a bit when I saw it, maybe that was the intention..
For those of you who aren't  a STAR WARS fan and don't have one in your inner circle of family and friends, you need to understand that these changes, while slight and meaningless to some, set the fanboy-girl world on fire with debate and theatrics. Thanks to the internet, people immediately rant on Facebook, cuss on Twitter, and rumble on Tumblr..

Along with this new STAR WARS light saber style, though, comes some pretty inventive memes floating around the net..

The always reliable MASHABLE has a bit of an accounting of some of the best ..Including these:

Zbqnfg8
Q1cost1C0rlfah



And this, perhaps my favorite:

http://i.imgur.com/ETlnSxw.gif

The creative stylings of fans online never ceases to amaze me..

Inventive minds are always at work. Memes are the most refreshing of examples of how people can still think outside the box.

x x x

There is a bit of sad news in relations to the STAR WARS franchise being reported today, though.. The story comes from the UK MIRROR.. the tabloid is profiling David Prowse.. he is the giant, literally speaking at 6 feet plus, who played DARTH VADER in the original Lucas films.. The unfortunate way life has played out for him, however, is not happy: He is suffering from dementia and, according to his own confession, not improving with medication.  In the article, Prowse admits that since Darth Vader was killed from the movie, there's really no way back.. I feel awful for him, though, to be one of the few who could not reprise a role in the newest film.

And that note, memes and Prowse aside, I wonder this: The ultimate test for the new STAR WARS film will be to achieve a new Darth Vader of our time.. will that occur? Could the dark side come with a new being in this film, one that will make DARTH VADER look like an amateur?

There has been some opinions that the greatest movie villain of all time has VADER in the top 5, if not 3..
STAR WARS is awakening with a new force.. But will they be able to provide this generation of selfies and tech addicts the villain they want, or better yet, the villain they need?
We will find out in December 2015.

Until then, I trust a number of more memes will be released with each trailer..

In the world at large, some news can be consider leftovers.. Here's what I think matters to me, and perhaps should to you, as well. Presented in link form. Click on what you want and you can go away.

People protesting a grand jury’s decision not to indict the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. temporarily shut down the Galleria mall in Richmond Heights 10 miles away.

Shopping in Ferguson and St Louis were affected by large protests over the Michael Brown shooting.. It led to arrests and even mall closures..

Cable is dying. Some predict that by 2030 it will be completely dead.. Here is an article that is detailing how streaming is taking over our lives and pop culture. And this is one future shock I am in favor of.. Cable and DirectTV and all the like give us a plate full of garbage.. the crap that is broadcast so often us unneeded. I have one friend who has completely gone off the grid known as cable, and only streams.. He's perfectly fine with that.  Netflix and Hulu are the way to go.. in the next 20 years, we will also have more options when it comes to streaming.. Cable will indeed by dead by 2030.


People are really, really excited over the new trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

But what is clear is this: Pigs cannot fly, nor can horses. Someone needs to go back to the drawing board and get a better horse. Or maybe it was a drone in a horse's body? Whatever it was, it's comic relief for your Saturday morning..
Either that or the end times are upon us..

Dook .. Dook.. Dook.. The horror movie of the year?

Yesterday, the HORROR REPORT linked up several news sites' stories about the horror film BABADOOK. All were positive--for a horror movie that is surprising to have mainstream sources actually back the film. There's another today: SLATE magazine says that you should see this terrifying movie about motherhood.. 


And there is more: The LA TIMES says that the movie is smart and delivers grown up horrors..
The Mary Sue says you will never escape this best horror movie of 2014..


The reaction to BABABDOOK has been interesting to read.. I have read countless reader reviews and many of them say that the movie was so off-putting about children, they have decided not to have any..  One commenter on a story even wrote that the child was so repulsive in this film, they were rooting for the monster..


The BABADOOK is a metaphor in our time for sometimes.. I think for the pains of single parenting. This is a scary thought that many people have to endure .. There are tons of single moms and dads out there, split by a high divorce rate or even the tragic experiences of death itself of one of the people in the family.. Raising one child alone--or even more-- is an unsettling premise in itself. Imagine when you through in some paranormal entities and a dook dook dook pounding on a night time door.. It's a frightening thought to say the least..


The movie clearly features an overwhelmed mother and a troubled child


But if you want to see this 'greatest horror movie' of the year, good luck: 99.9% of you will not be able to in theaters, since the release is so small. You may need to be in Los Angeles to see it..
Or on Demand.
So demand it. And see it.

Empty restaurants and quiet streets

My life has changed considerably since the carefree days of my early 20s.. I am not saying that is a negative thing, but just instead a product of growing.. Interestingly, there are times I go back and see even what I posted on the HORROR REPORT about 10 years back, and really not much has changed in that regard.. It's my personal life where the most has occurred..

When you're a dad, and your wife is a mom, you're tired by ten and rarely get the chance to get out of the house.. date nights are a dime a dozen, and even when they take place you're mostly worried for the last half of it about how your child is doing at home with whoever is watching..

There are other times though where a simple act of driving can open the floodgates of memories.. Last night, a simple act like that did happen. Around 9, I got extremely hungry for food from a little place called Hollywood Pizza in Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania--I name it because you should consider it if you're ever in a zip code nearby, it's some of the greatest pizza that is eaten on the crust of the planet.. Before I digress into a litany of food related statements, let me get back to my drive.. It was 9pm, cold as hell--if that's possible--and the streets were empty. Only 9pm on a Friday night? Empty? It was so quiet I could hear the electricity surge through the lines above me, that faint and dull hum that comes with it filled the night air with some form of noise..

Bars were empty, it seemed..
Even the restaurant I picked my food up was without customers most of the night..
And my nostalgia hit.. I recalled very similar nights in my early 20s, with friends, walking on a cold street into a watering house or food establishment.. I remember the laughter and the strange things we'd do, trying to act as adults when we needed to but still refrain from adulthood when we could.. I was fond of those times, though nostalgia normally shields your memory from the boring nights or horrid times..

What confounds me is this: On Thanksgiving night, while driving home from a family dinner, I witnessed with my own eyes how busy malls and Walmarts were. But that seemed to change on Friday.. I doubt that Black Friday sales will be as good as what was expected..

Last night, I was further shocked to see so little of life outside at night. I understand that this could be a product of my area, perhaps just a little hole in a wall town without people outside.. I am sure cities had bars packed with patrons.. Right?

I am actually beginning to consider the possibility that people have evolved away from enjoying night life .. It seems that once nightfall comes, house doors and windows get locked and computers go on, people slip away from life to peruse Facebook for too many hours or play Farm Heroes way too long.  The watering house always has empty seats..  We are choosing virtual reality over reality..

I am 34 this year.. While some may consider that young, I feel old. Joints are aching and my body is aging. Then again, friends and family remind me often that I shared those same complaints with them at 24.  Things have changed greatly in ten years.. And with changes comes fond memories of times past.. Nostalgia..

But is nostalgia a good thing? And even more, what is it? Smell and touch can bring it back.. short little snippets of sayings may inspire it.. times of the year often hit you with it.. But it can also be deceptive.. people can be turn a dark past into a bright memory with a bit of falsehood in a brain.  I try to explain this to people, often without success, but I get very nostalgic on 9/11 each year.. Not because I enjoyed watching 3000 people die, but because I turned 21 and recall the immense patriotism after 9/11 in 2001. Nostalgia can trick you ..

There is a study I recall reading that nostalgia is more present when you are lonely or sad.  Last night, while I walked a lonely sidewalk under a street light to get my meal, perhaps that is exactly what I was feeling. After all, here it was, a Friday night, and I heard no music. No laughter.. nothing. Just dimly lit bars without customers.   And hell, even a crowded barroom is a lonely place.. Just picture a taproom void of people..

Perhaps this generation growing is the last that will encounter social life in the same way we know it to exist. . ? Maybe those virtual reality worlds will give us the sense of companionship we desire? Perhaps we can program it into us..? Maybe the future will come complete with an adroid robot sex doll for our love and a headset and computer for social experimentation.

And if that is the case, how will nostalgia work in the future? What will people reminiscent about ?

The good old days weren't ever that good.
Tomorrow is not as bad as it seems. Billy Joel sang that long before we thought that..
And those two statements make sense now..

Crowded and smoky barrooms of my 20s weren't great. They were repulsive many times, and by 2am a complete insult to humanity itself.
And tomorrow, the future, really won't be as bad..

Right?

A Black Friday news collection

Here are the briefs and long reads to know about, now that your turkey induced coma has wore off and you're most likely caffeinated as hell for your shopping steam roll.. First take a deep breath and enjoy your worldview. Or maybe get it shattered by facts ..

The news:

Marcel-Lehel Lazar, a.k.a Guccifer, tormented various celebrities with no special skills beyond what he had picked up on the web.
The New York TIMES has an interesting profile running on Marcel-Lehel Lazar, otherwise known as the hacker GUCCIFER. 
 He caused chaos and heartache to all of those who he stole the emails of.. The New York TIMES also mentions one other Guccifer prediction that may scare your Christmas socks off: A 2015 nuclear attack in Chicago and an unnamed city in Pennsylvania.. Many are discounting that as conspiracy lunacy, while others may be getting their iodine ready..




There is some perspective on Black Friday today courtesy of a YouTube video that compares shoppers in 1983 and today.
Needless to say, our animal instincts have kicked in to high gear and we are acting like hunters in ancient times again. The 1980s outfits were more colorful, too.. why do we all dress in black anymore? SO drab and boring, so morose and melancholy. Let's pep this experience up, zombies! IT'S CHRISTMASTIME!

They're off! Black Friday madness from sea to sea.

The media reminds me a lot of Andre Linoge from Stephen King's STORM OF THE CENTURY. In that fictitious horror tale, Linoge was an aging devil looking for a child apprentice to teach the evil ways.. he found one by demanding a town during a massive blizzard to give him what he wants and he will go away. After chaos and brutal fights ensued, Linoge took his child and flew off into the distance, leaving the mess of the world behind him.

The media does just that. In Ferguson last week, after drumming up people and revving their airwave engines, they inspired a riot. They wanted it. They needed ratings, and knew that once the grand jury decision regarding the Michael Brown shooting would be revealed, their dreams could be fulfilled. A town burned, even some media folk got their heads slammed with bricks. And the next day, as the smoldering mess was still too hot to touch, the media slowly vacated the scene and took their news trucks with them. They really, really don't care about Michael Brown, nor do they care about justice or a police state. They wanted ratings.. for a brief night in November, they got astounding ratings. And a city burned..

Now, with Black Friday upon us, the media has the same desire. They want rage, blood, fights, and gore. They hope that the shopping scene is chaos, that store owners will be in peril, and that shoppers fighting over foreign made slave products will punch and push their way through lines in stores all over the United States. Luckily for the media, people on Black Friday are somewhat predictable. This type of event will most likely happen today--violence has marred Black Fridays in the past, so why wouldn't this year be the same? The media will get what it wants. And it will go away..

But what do Black Friday shoppers want? They want deals..I get that.  I think they want something more than that. I believe they want to feel they are a part of a group, a little branch of humanity. They want to share laughs, share stories, and they want to be in line with other human hunters for goods.. In a sense, they are a part of something today.  A part of a herd, sure, and yes they will be cattle prodded through WALMARTS across the fruited plain.. but I think becoming a shopper on Black Friday is  a bit like being a part of a team. Either you're on team Shopper or on Team StayatHome.  You are choosing your side once you get your keys in hand and trek to the mall..

There are some horrific past experiences of people on Black Friday.. this video captures that in opening rounds from 2012 and 2013.

And this year, so far, there have been some photographic evidence of humanity's brutality over material possessions, and it's not just the US of A:

Do you want to be a part of this scene? Or you can simply wait for Cyber Monday. Clicks don't hurt other people.

OR Local Saturday.. whatever they call it these days..

For a person like me, someone who actually wouldn't mind just getting out of the house today with a three year old, where would I go? Malls could be vicious and dangerous. Even grocery stores may be fraught with hidden dangers. My local Turkey Hill market is selling ice cream and soda at half price. That sounds like a trample waiting to happen, as well..

The HORROR REPORT will monitor the shopping scenes across America today.. Maybe not in person, but certainly newsworthy events will be shared and tidbits of anarchy will be broadcast on this site.

If you head to a store, may your journey be peaceful and your harvest of cheap plastic be plentiful. Just think before you buy.. And don't throw the first punch. You can be shared in a Black Friday crime.

And in the meantime, here's some humor from the ONION, in a 2012 article.. when 42 million died in the bloodiest black Friday weekend in history.

THE SNOWBALL FAMILY FIGHT

There are so many reasons I love this photo of me and my son Ayden having a snowball fight.

First off, he is clearly winning.. secondly, I am wearing socks on my hands because I couldn’t find gloves.. and thirdly, in some artistic oddity, it appears that I am vomiting a tree branch..

While I did not do such, my hands were not kept warm by the socks. Ayden whooped me hard with giant ice bombs.. and we laughed until we couldn't feel our toes. An amazing early winter snowstorm of fun.

The big sale: Selling your Thanksgiving for commerce

NIGHT AT THE RACES! The early bird Black Friday specials begin tonight: Thanksgiving »


I am half inclined to not care about this Black Friday mayhem.. To a big degree, throughout my teenage and adult life, Thanksgiving night has been boring. Prior to my married and fatherhood days, friends and I would take to the movie theaters and then whatever 24/7 restaurant still served on Thanksgiving and burn up time.. It was awfully dull. Same often went for Christmas night, too. So I certainly get the idea that people just want to do something and get out of a house—especially if they had it up to their throbbing temples with family brouhahas..

But as far as the shopping? It’s insane to ignite any fire in my rear end to go to a mall or Walmart tonight into tomorrow morning. There will be trampling. Mayhem. Near riots. Shootings. Punches. Fights. Screaming.

Just tonight, while getting a last minute pie on our way to Thanksgiving dinner, we stopped at a Walmart since they were the only slave store still open forcing their employees to miss valuable time with family in exchange for hours behind a cash register. The pre-Black Friday sales were already being planned, with plastic wrap around the things we weren’t allowed to see or take.. There were cattle-herding-type metal gates around the store.. there were taped markers on the floor where people were to form  lines.. and there were actually store workers screaming at me, my wife, and son, because we entered on the wrong side of the cattle prodding gates..

But we got our pie..
I will be monitoring the news outlets tomorrow to see what happens in the shopping outlets..

There may be blood. We know that.
But the deals!
Commerce!
Credit!
Spend until your can’t lend..
Can’t tell you’re in hell..
Your shopping plaza treats you so well.

Enjoy your races to the slaughter tomorrow. Your cash will be dispensed as fast as you spend it.

Or wait, we are cashless now.

So strap in and swipe away..
It’s Black Friday and the turkey has gone cold.

Turkeys.
Cold turkeys.

THANKSGIVING EVE GREETINGS

This is my son Ayden peering through a decorated window looking at the first snowstorm of the year, which incidentally falls on the day before Thanksgiving 2014.

While he’s excited by the prospect of playing in this later, it will most likely only last for a few minutes outside when he ventures away from
Technology and television sets… He’s not a big snow lover, at least not yet.. but one thing he sure loves now is his understanding that today was the first day his daycare got canceled because of the weather..

I remember those days myself as a child, staring at the bottom of the television screen waiting for my school to be named, angry when it wasn’t…

Sometimes being a parent is like watching yourself grow, enjoying the same things they do, and almost feeling like it’s happening for the first time to you as well.

So if it’s snowing where you are enjoy it. If it’s not, enjoy whatever weather nature has given you.

Mutley the Dog got in some action tonight, too..

Careful travels, and let your party night rock. Or be frozen solid as a rock, whichever nature chooses for your night before Thanksgiving..

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.

A horrible day in Afghanistan

At least 45 people were killed and 60 others were wounded Sunday after a suicide bomber attacked a crowd watching a volleyball match in Afghanistan's southeastern Paktika province, according to a spokesman for the local governor.

THE SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALK BEFORE THANKSGIVING

Preparations are being made.. Turkeys are getting set for their pardons. Others are plucked and ready for an oven baked  night of finger licking food. Thanksgiving is set for this week. No stopping it, the calender does not lie and time does not give any extra seconds to get things right.. But things this year may be very wrong. A potential storm is in the making for Thanksgiving in my neck of the turkey. Of course, the fact it could not materialize is still present--as happened with a Thanksgiving storm in 2013 that never took off--but the potential is there. It could strike on party night.. and linger into the morning. If it happens. Making the planes, trains, and automobiles even worse off ..

But it's Sunday. And if it's Sunday, there's a lonely sidewalk to stroll on. Get ready..

GRAPHIC IMAGES SHOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE.. These images are rough to see in some respects, but also extremely beautiful if you contemplate what people do to respect a corpse once a soul has left it.. The images actually forced me to contemplate even harder the question, 'what is death?'  How could someone, so active and alive, breathe one second but a human bag of flesh void of any marker showcasing the person's life the next?  Is it just like a computer shutdown? Something that works one minute just does not the next .. ? Or is it that important soul, if a soul exists? Does the entity that inhabits the body leave? So many questions that will never be answered--but my hunt for any evidence of anything continues unabated..

A good British report from the UK INDEPENDENT on the 'American' Black Friday creation..
 The paper asks if the discounts are helpful or it's just a trick.. There's a chance you can find something good. Like my local Turkey Hill offering up Ice Cream for a buck. But most of the stuff that goes on sale is unnecessary junk, just heaps of plastic foreign slave labor made products that don't have a place in someone's less than stellar dwelling. Let's get real this year.. Set a budget, that's one thing. But beyond that, buy something that truly has meaning--even if you give one gift to a person instead of ten, make that one gift be heartfelt and monumental in its importance. Or just brave the madness that will be Black Friday .. you can always do that, too, I suppose (I may, for that ice cream)

Go to the light! Quite literally.. if you want to feel better and have something serious, light therapy may be for you. Lately, in my personal world of home base, light has been hard to find. Sunny days are not abundant, it's been a very bleak November ever since Halloween ended.. And the cloudy impact has had an emotional one on my well being, with the sun seemingly vacated life, happiness has not abounded.. I just one a sunny day, one to bless my face with warmth .. just one day. It seems so hard to find this time of year. This article is a showcase as to why light, and the sun, is important. Vitamin D's best source is the giant light in the sky.. mood depression and other disorders could be solved with some rays.. As far as wellness, here's an old article suggesting the type of light bulb that may enhance your winter blues and turn the cold frown right around.. It's all about light.

So get out there and enjoy the sun. If not, get some new light bulbs and be the ray of sun wherever it's needed.

This is an important week. Thanksgiving--one of the best holidays of the year. Don't be glum. You're not a turkey.

GOBBLE GOBBLE.
Happy Sunday.

 

 

The news of the day..

Saturday begins.. noteworthy events continue.. a conglomeration of things that matter from the fruited plain and beyond..


Today is the 51st anniversary of the JFK assassination. I contemplated this all week, and listened to some amazing GROUND ZERO WITH CLYDE LEWIS shows as well. It angers me to think that we don't have truth, and that even after all these decades are done, the main theory of the assassination being perpetrated by one lone gunman still seems to rely on such shaky truth. And the girls seeing Lee Oswald drinking a Coke!? Ignored.. a man at the underpass being hit by a stray bullet? Forgotten.. A rush of a crowd running to the Grassy Knoll? We are told they were simply chasing echoes from the main shooter: Oswald on the 6th floor in his 'sniper's den.' And then, Jack Ruby kills the main that Hoover and company immediately blamed for the assassination and America, as a result, skyrocketed involvement in foreign entanglements.. The only thing that makes sense is that the cover story for the JFK assassination does not make sense, at all. Take just one minute out of your busy Saturday and picture one single shooter--avoiding the easy shot--but still getting each and every shot perfectly right. The magic bullet theory..And the magic easy one shooter assassination theory. Forgetting, of course, Oswald's ties to alphabet agencies..


Speaking of JFK.. A mob hitman named James Files claims he was the man responsible for killing Kennedy and that Lee Harvey Oswald never fired a single shot..


This is an interesting little tale being weaved by the religious power brokers of the planet: The Pope and Peres meet and discuss a sort of 'United Nations for religions.' You ever hear of those weird conspiracy theories that a one world religion would occur? Maybe that will happen after all. With Petrus Romanus to boot us into papal submission. Infallible style.




The future is coming so fast it's already sort of behind us.. So what happens when robots not only replace the manufacturing jobs as they have done, but also the service economy as they are beginning to do now?? A WAGE FLOOR! Switzerland is preparing to give a 'living wage' to every citizen in its country. A monthly income with no strings attached. This may start to become a permanent reality for lots of people living in a jobless society. And the living wage could be a good thing for conservative minded people, too! It would replace social safety nets like food stamps and welfare. Instead, you'd get the income you need on a monthly basis to live. No more need for jobs. Let the robots do it.. I think this is going to happen more and more in places you'd never expect it. But in reality, what is the solution without the wage floor? What do you do with a nation of 300 million in America, let's say, where only 40% of a country works and only 20% of them have jobs with good benefits or pensions? The failure has already occurred.. the 'jobless recovery' has paved the way for a wage floor in the future. Checks handed out by government robots...



Bill Cosby has been getting hit lots of picture pages from women lately.. But when he continued to entertain at his sold out show in Florida, he received a standing ovation from his audience.. The Cos comeback tour beginning? Or sentimental people who are allowing their nostalgia to cover their eyes to high crimes committed by the man who once made us laugh?



The Obama Administration issues warning to America: Don't waste your Thanksgiving food.



This is an amazing story--I have written previously that the nuclear situation in Hanford, Washington, was being ignored on purpose my national media. I believe that continues to be the case. But the local affiliates are still reporting on situations, with the latest news being a blip about a damning picture of worker safety protocols at the Hanford site. Previously, Hanford workers received claim denials .. Something surely is rotten..




Fear for Thanksgiving: Lindsay Williams back with ominous warnings of chaos inspired by the elite...

Fear for Christmas: FOX NEWS warns that hackers could send America into an uncontrollable downward spiral. Like WALKING DEAD stuff.. only the hosts with three inches of makeup will survive.

Fear porn. War. Terror. Economic realities.. This is how your brain turns remote threats into anxiety. Cue the air hunger, coming to a lung near you.


An old debate (as well old as video games at least) rears again: Do violent games make us violent?


While Obama took to the nation to discuss immigration, causing deep hatred to flow and bitter anger to surface, something else was going on. He was very quietly extending the US combat mission in Afghanistan.. As a matter of fact, it expands what troops in the nation can do through the year 2015. Previously, our leader stated that the mission would be limited.. This may come as a surprise to those not paying attention. Okay. Back to your immigration debate now, sheeple.

And interesting note to make on the immigration issue, as well: Obama has signed the order paving the way for at least 5 million illegal immigrants to get citizenship, all with the stroke of his pen, obviously mightier than his sword.. But he is still being heckled by immigration activists wherever he goes. And their stance is interesting: Why did he leave their moms behind?



American led air strikes in Syria have killed 910 people including 52 civilians.

MAKING A MOEHILL OUT OF THE MUNDANE

The very normal and random act of a cup falling down off of the sink today caused me a little concern until I contemplated what had just occurred.

I was moving from one room to the next when I placed the cup on the edge of the bathroom sink. I left the room for a split second and thought to myself, “that coup is going to fall” ..

And that it did.

I went back into the room, wiped up the coffee which had fallen from the cup onto the floor, and checked the mug for any potential breaks. This was a very special mug after all, it was my Batman Father’s Day hero cup given to me the first year my son was alive..

After cleaning up and leaving the room, I stopped to think back as to what just happened.

Quite literally, I even retrace my steps. I went back into the room and realized where the cup markings had been, as we know coffee cups often leave a stain outline of where the its put down.

What I realized was astonishing. There should be no logical way the cup would’ve fallen off of the sink judging from the markings of where it was but I placed it down. It was literally inches away from the edge, but yet somehow when I left the room the mug had fallen down from the location.

My mind is boggled, and it continues to be so. I continue to rehash the scene in my mind over and over again and wonder if somehow perhaps as I was leaving the room I didn’t quite unhand the cup fully from my fingers and shifted it towards the edge too much, allowing it to gracefully fall from the sink onto the floor below.

Even stranger I thought, why did I think the cup would fall before it did? Did I create this action by my thoughts? Or, did I subconsciously make the cup fall down by moving it towards the edge of the sink, and somehow convincing myself it was a random act of fate?

I know this: the cup is fine, it seems 30. I also know in my deep heart of hearts that I did not make that cup fell down by any physical action.

As far as how the cup fell? I really don’t know.
An abundant amount of theories are exploding in my head, some metaphysical and some paranormal, even a peppered bit with the notion that time slips or an alternate reality of me was present on another time line, and for one second we interacted.

Quite frankly, there is no logical way that the cup should have fallen from the sink. But it did.

And it bothers me..

THE QUIET PEACE OF A SUNSET, WHILE THE NOISE OF THE DAY BLASTS YOUR TIRED FIVE SENSES

It was a normal late evening rush hour.
Cars attempting to burst out of the moving traffic jams caused by too many people leaving work at the same time..
Trucks pushing and shoving themselves into the front of the line, just to make traffic back up further..
And noise..

Voices raised on radio..So much noise.. So much clutter. The voices on the radio wildly claiming that President Obama should be impeached for amnesty.. And all the while, proponents of the President, like Nancy Pelosi, were making their own wild claims by saying the Obama plan to legalize millions of Mexicans was akin to Lincoln’s proclamation freeing the slaves..

But the sun was setting.. and those voices were being suddenly drown out by the reality in front of me.

The clutter of the day, along with the tension raising diatribes of talking heads in the air, didn’t matter.. Their sounds were gone. Instead a brilliant sunset was taking place in front of me..

The countless stresses were immediately alleviated. I was almost frozen in awe at the deep red and orange haze that was glazing the sky over.. Like a homage to the day, the sun was cleverly saying goodbye to all that was when it was shining bright.. now night was falling, the atmosphere was darkening.. but the sun’s final hoorah was complete with one final serenade.

For a moment, it was like the sky turned the color of blood red ooze..

These sunsets are synonymous with this time of year..
And then.. the sun was gone.
Tucked away behind a mountain… a cloak of darkness took its place. The faint bright outline of red still topped the hills. But the beauty of that sunset became just a fleeting moment in recent history..

And with all of the sudden, those voices still clamoring about daily headlines went up in volume.. And life was back to normal again..

A PARANORMAL TALE OF TRUTH? A FAMILY MEMBER MOVED ME INTO WRITING.. SHE TELLS ME OF HER TALE OF A EURO FALLING FROM HEAVEN.. A SIGN FROM ABOVE OR A SIGNAL FROM BELOW? You be the judge..

A family member of mine, name and official title nameless at this point, told me a strange story of a bizarre nature. She swears by it, and I can relay it only with this caveat: She comes with a strong mind, a strong will, and an amazing ability to sense things that others may not. Along with that, she is not the person who ‘cries wolf’ or sees oddities where there are none. In essence, she’s the perfect witness to a crime: Someone who will restate the factual and not embellish on the unseen. In the case of the story she told me today, the unseen in the central focus of what has happened to her..

In short, her family dog has been acting strange as of late. Each time the family leaves the house, the pet makes a bowel movement on the same place of the upstairs hallway in her house–like clockwork and with pinpoint resolve, the dog is in the focused spot each time. The latest time she went out, just last night as a matter of fact, and came home, a dog mess was right back where he always leaves it..

This time, though, had a twist.

While she was on her knees scrubbing the floor, she was tapped on the top of the head by some sort of object. Blaming her husband for mindless frivolity, she spoke his name aloud but he was not present.. Instead, the hallway was empty and not a soul was seen.. But a coin was right in front of her–a coin that was not there seconds prior to the hit on her head and certainly not there when she had started cleaning up after her animal..

The other extraordinary part of this strange tale: The coin was a Euro one cent piece..

Logic has escaped her. She is void of an explanation to the monetary strangeness, instead she has decided to chalk it up to the antics of some sort of spirit, time warp, or portal.

I went through likely scenarios of a skeptical nature–a piece of money on the door frame above her, perhaps even stuck in a ceiling block. But both are impossible–there are no door frames where she was kneeling, nor ceiling blocks. This Euro cent just, in a sense, fell on her head from no where–materializing from the sky and slamming down into the reality in front of her..

In my own thoughts on this matter, I did the old 21st century method of attempting to quantify this story with other similar ones. I found an interesting link on a PARANORMAL About website, one that details some historical moments when money seemingly fell from the sky without a source.. Some of the stories describe potentially deceased loved ones giving signs to the still living. But in my family member’s case, no one to our knowledge has died in Europe recently.. Sure, distant relatives came here decades ago, but at this point nothing to ‘write home about’ .. There is one important connection to someone serving in the military in Europe. But he’s fine at press time and, again, a connection between that and this Euro from heaven incident seems to be nothing worth mentioning..

But there is one last thing worth mentioning..
While the sign may not be obvious, that Euro from heaven may have helped do one thing: save a life. Today, that same family member who has become perplexed by the whole notion of something coming from no where and striking her clear right in the middle of her head was looking for the penny in the pants she wore yesterday, she told me she wanted to get the Euro and just make certain that it was all true. The Euro was there–but she also made herself late for work because of the search. In the mean time, on the same route she travels, an accident occurred and claimed two lives. Moments afterwards she drove by the scene, peering our of her window and … thanking that little Euro for buying another day…

This story is true..
At least as true as it was told to me..
Relayed to you. From this time period to yours.. Money from heaven?
The magic Euro theory.. perhaps.

ALL THE COSBY NEWS YOU'RE GETTING GROSSED OUT BY HEARING

Janice Dickinson accuses Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her »




This is getting really bad for Bill Cosby..
The man who wanted people to meme him..
And now this.

Meanwhile, the controversy over how journalists are covering the Cosby scandals from the 20th century is taking center stage—yet again thanks to CNN no less. A few days ago anchor Don Lemon made some news by saying ‘there are not ways to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it’ ..  Even more, Lemon thinks that the accusers, including Janice Dickinson, should have bitten off Bill Cosby’s genitals. 

That got me thinking about how much different the 1980s would have been without the Huxtables. And if the first woman would have done it, how none of the other women would have been raped by Bill Cosby.

Oh .. Cos.. you’re just not going to stop the floodgates on this one.

I found a little treasure trove on Tumblr that hasn&#8217;t been updated for several years.. it&#8217;s http://cosbygifs.tumblr.com/.. And yes, you can imagine the unfortunate jokes that can be now made about each and every moving picture..<br/><br/>Now we just need CNN&#8217;S Don Lemon to ask why no one bit off his genitals in those pictures..

DANA KENNEDY WRITES: "Bill Cosby didn’t rape me but what he did has always given me the creeps" »


And her description as it appears in RAW STORY is certainly one of a creepy nature. She types this,
Bill Cosby never hit on me and was never seductive in any way. But I remember how intimidating and menacing he was all the same. I met him when I was assigned to write a feature story on him for the Associated Press in February 1992.

He was at the peak of his powers when I was ushered into his dressing room at the Kaufman Astoria studios in Queens. The groundbreaking Cosby Show, one of the most successful TV series of all time, was in its eighth and final season. The year before, this 54-year-old son of an alcoholic father who grew up in a North Philadelphia housing project had made $113 million.

Gets weirder:
However, as I wrote in my ensuing article about Bill Cosby, “the tension in the air was remarkably thick” as Cosby immediately took control of our interview by treating me to a fairly hostile 14-minute discourse on why he distrusted the press. (You can find the article online.) Cosby’s attitude was especially bewildering because he usually got good press. He was for years one of the most beloved performers in show business.

“Tell me what you want to ask and we’ll see how it goes,” he told me, speaking slowly and measuring his words. “If it doesn’t go well, I’ll give you a piece of fruit. I’ll give you an apple or pear and you can be on your way.”

My questions apparently passed muster, although as I wrote, Cosby “controls the interview by stretching each answer into a lengthy soliloquy.”

The interview was so unusual and uncomfortable that it seeped into the article I wrote. It’s hard to know how else I could have written it. The substance of what he said took a back seat to the atmosphere Cosby created between us. He was a very scary guy.

Less than a week after the story was published, I received a package at AP’s world headquarters, which was then at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. This was years before 9-11 so of course I opened it without trepidation.

Inside was a sheet of paper with three typed words: “Here’s your apple.” The signature in black ink read “Bill Cosby.” And wrapped in a paper towel was indeed an apple, dried and withered.

So back to the http://cosbygifs.tumblr.com/ for the appropriate picture:

Choking Cosby<br/><br/>(And yes, that&#8217;s Twin Peaks&#8217;s own Bobby Briggs being choked by Bill!)

Geez.. and ya think ya know someone..

A BAT WITH A HOBBIT?

Filming is just about over for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN.. and a trailer is on the way soon. That is pretty exciting news for me, how about you?

There is a high chance, according to these online trade rumors, that production of the film will soon be complete, and that Henry Cavill has concluded his scenes..

There are some major rumors brewing that the trailer for this movie will be attached to THE HOBBIT release on December 17th 2014.. If so, an early Christmas gift for people awaiting the BATMAN VS SUPERMAN movie will be the slickly produced advertisement to drum up even more excitement about the movie..

That is what also makes me worry about BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. They need to do this right.. The word is the trailer will be BATMAN HEAVY.. I think that is understandable. We have not had SUPERMAN invade our pop culture as much as BATMAN over the past 10 years..

But let’s just hope the trailer is great. And hope the movie is greater..

COMPOUNDING THE COMPOUNDS OF FEAR

Additive found soap, toothpaste and shampoo is linked to cancer »



Alright.. let me level with everyone. I am a germaphobe. But I am also a hypochondriac. So on any given day at any given  time I fear germs, but also think I will get some form of obscure cancer..I feel very bad for people who live with me.

That said, this story is detrimental to my mental security! The prospects of something that I worship, the antibacterial soaps of all kinds, giving me cancer of the liver!?

The fear I have of each has suddenly skyrocketed.. my mind is perplexed by which is the greater fear—the biggest of the two should be the guiding light for the rest of my life, right?

The other part that may be fascinating.. Antibacterial soap, for all the worship veneration occurred, may not work anyway!

The DAILY MAIL report says,
 One basic problem is that antibacterial soaps specifically target bacteria rather than viruses. But it is viruses that cause the majority of illnesses, such as colds and flu.

The most effective scientifically proven way to keep bacteria at bay is regular hand-washing with ordinary soap, along with good food hygiene in the kitchen.


Antibacterial soaps may actually cause health problems, too. 


Evidence shows children with prolonged exposure to triclosan over months or years have a greater chance of developing allergies, including peanut allergies and hay fever, according to studies in the Journal of Allergy And Clinical Immunology in 2012, and in Environmental Health Perspectives in 2011.


This may be due to the fact that youngsters who use antibacterial soaps and cleansers reduce their exposure to bacteria. 



So there you go..there I go.. What to do?
Throw away the soap? Start cleaning with just baking soda.

I will be honest though. I have been aware of this constant underbelly of research—bacteria soap problems. But I continued to somehow see the word ‘antibacterial’ and bought in to the lie.. Hook, line and sinker.. Now the newest reports of this issue come from the mainstream media.. headlines that hand soap, toothpaste and shampoo may not be our friends..

Do you know your enemy?
Maybe you do.. it’s being rubbed on your body each and every day//

I KNEW THE SNOW IN NEW YORK WAS BAD..

….but I really did not realize just how bad it was until further research into news bits and the study of the photographs.. the snow is piled high—residents who have been witness to monster snowbursts before said they have never seen anything quite like what has occurred. Even more, four are dead due to lightning strikes and thunder snow.. An entire basketball team was rescued after becoming stranded.. 

At this point, the motorists who are stranded on I-90 have no idea when they will get off the highway.. And get this: NBC news reports,
Almost 76 inches of snow fell in the suburbs in southern Buffalo, according to The National Weather Service. This total was a record over a 24-hour period for anywhere in the U.S. on record. It prompted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to declare a state of emergency in 10 counties. Among hundreds of trapped vehicles on the roads was the team bus of the Niagara University Purple Eagles women’s basketball team. It was stuck for more than 24 hours around 50 miles from the team’s Buffalo campus. Players tweeted early Wednesday that they had been rescued.

That is scary.. very very scary.

I recall the now famous Valentine’s Day Ice storm in Pennsylvania back in the mid 2000s when people were stranded on several major PA highways for up to 25 hours.. That was a disaster, and the temperature was warmer than what Buffalo has and the snow was much less..

In this situation: The snow amounts in photographs look downright frightening..

So for now, this has become a 50-state freeze.. Major cold across the entire country. All thanks to a Super Typhoon a month ago.. amazing how weather works..

So much snow, you have to jump to spat..

ROSIE TO GET THE BOOT?

There is trouble on the VIEW—the most annoying show on television I made add, one I only watch when I am sitting in a Jack Williams waiting room or doctor’s office.. Nonetheless, many people watch it. And the studio audience shrieks like wild hyenas daily.

The latest bit of gossip that, in the end I don’t care much about, is this: Whoopi and Rosie are involved in quite the back stage feud since O’Donnell returned to co-host the show.. Along with that feud: Bad ratings for the program.. Now the rumor  mill churns: Maybe a nationwide search for a new host once Rosie gets fired, something insiders claim is coming.. 

I have a major problem with the VIEW.. The few times I have watched it, the entertainment value was less than enjoyable—yes, I suppose I did not ‘enjoy the view’ as the hosts admonish us to do daily.. But even more, the dumbed-down type of information spewing is the worst. The women are opinionated.. but the news that is offered is a shell of reality. We are treated to talking points from some less than revolutionary thinkers. I highly doubt that these women showcase any of the realities of what women really think on any issues.. Instead, ABC’s version of the news is to splash in George Clooney along with watered down factoids.

There are very serious women who are journalists.. Lisa Ling would be a fine addition to the program. If you want to get political, team up someone like Ann Coulter and Janeane Garofalo .. that would be a view worth watching..

Instead we are subjected to Rosie O’Donnell and other leftover spoils from the 20th century.

And finally, on this matter, I think I am team Whoopi. As a matter of fact, I think a Whoopi only show would work quite well, to be honest..

Rainfall from the soul

Darkness pervades,
Unity evades,
Rainfall is strong,
Nature's not wrong

November is here,
And almost gone,
The cold will begin,
Nature's not wrong

A deep and dark fog
A drenching soak,
The cloak of cold is long,
But nature's not wrong

Pounding away finally pays off..

Big news in the radio world..
You may remember the deep voice of John B. Wells on Coast to Coast AM. He was the weekend guy on the show until George Noory figured out that he was getting more popular than him and had him terminated from memory at the show..

Wells went off into Internet radio land, doing his own show called Caravan to Midnight—an odd name for a morning program..

But the uphill battle is paying off.. Wells has now been launched into national syndication..Talkers Magazine reports, 
 Entercom’s WRKO, Boston joins the affiliate roster as the first major market station, airing a Saturday evening edition of the show.  The “Caravan to Midnight” program debuted in February of this year

Wells’ website offered up a brief feature of the types of programs he has been broadcasting..

I have constantly supported Wells, except during those times when he delved a little far too much off a deep end of Sandy Hook conspiracy theories.. But it’s good to see him succeed when, without a doubt, the Noory circle of jerkles never wanted him too.

Three cheers for John B.
Out of the dark of the deep range and into the light of the deep strange…

Yet more paranormal activity makes the rounds on mainstream news, as it so often happens these days in the aftermath of the gates of hell exploding open..

There is video online and being shared amongst the masses of an exorcism outside a Starbucks in Texas.. Some are mocking the scene as just another day in the Bible belt, others are freaked out to their core by the nature of the footage..

The video was posted on REDDIT.. the user said that he regularly sees Bible meetings at the Starbucks, but that this was the first time a saliva spewing exorcism took place..

No word on the amount of expresso that went into the possessed man before the video was filmed. Nor is there any expression of opinion from anyone involved or the Starbucks where it was filmed..

And as to whether it’s a hoax? Also unknown..

But this is: The woman person right inside the window could care less, with each photo showing the person continuous reading a book as though the demon is not being expelled outside..

Why perform an exorcism in your home or a holy place when you can perform it in front of a Starbucks in Austin?  That's the strange reality Reddit user Umgar was confronted with when he stumbled upon a group of men performing an "exorcism" on a seemingly entranced male spewing saliva — all in front of the Starbucks located at 6301 W. Parmer Lane. Photo: Fechter, Joshua I, Vidme

Bizarre scene.. deep in the demonic heart of a caffeinated Texas..
