Drama in the desert: Art Bell explains 'serious incident'

Last night Art Bell canceled his program MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT at the last minute due to a 'serious incident' that occurred. The description of events that were told tonight on Thanksgiving eve were chilling.

Bell said 'somebody or somebodies don't want me on the air,' as he went on to explain several instances starting with the October live radio shooting that occurred while Bell was broadcasting. A police report on that matter was filed, and many neighbors heard shots. One described a dark car and witnessed the person shooting the rifle near Bell's studio on his property.

On November 18, Bell said that another incident occurred at 7:50 PM PDT, where  a call was placed to his house and a man's voice said if he went on the air that night both he and his family 'would be killed.'  The number was blocked and service providers were not able to provide further information. Tonight was the first time that Bell publicly relayed this information to his listening audience.

On November 23, as Bell began his interview with Michio Kaku, he explained that security lights in the rear of the home went on. Bell grabbed a gun and went to the door as he observed a man crouched down near his studio window before taking off into the darkness of the desert.  Another police report was filed after the incident.

Bell admits being shaken up by the happenings, calling it 'terrorism on a personal level.'

Art Bell had a moment where he realized that he could have shot the intruder, saying "the next day it hit me like a bomb, 'I almost shot at somebody'" during his on air description of the events.

Bell explained not only has his life been disrupted, but his wife and child also have been living in a state of fear concerning the events.

Security has been increased, as Bell joked it is 'fit for a king, or dictator.'

Allegations are not being publicly made as to who it is that may be committed the acts on Bell's property, but suspicions are a plenty across the interview.

But the show goes on.. Bell is broadcasting in spite of threats and outside interests that seem compelled to keep him off the air.

And fans are listening, sending positive thoughts and prayers, and offering intentions of concern for the beloved radio host..

spiPhone X: Brave new world with a filter

It is hard to believe that only ten years ago, the technology that Apple would be selling the public was just about unfathomable.. Extremely fast processors. Facial recognition. Emojis that can make poop turn into your face and voice. 



In 2007, people were happy with Myspace and turning 'off' the net in favor of a night out. Now they can't leave home without the smartphone.
Apple wants to capitalize further on the influencers: Those who we are told have 'disposable income' (credit cards) and are below the age of 25 .. those who care less about processor speed and more about selfie. Those who would indeed literally buy an iPhone simply because it can turn their face into an Emoji of feces...



Let's pause for a moment. The most precious few seconds of Apple's big unveiling was a big flop: They tried to announce facial recognition but when they actually attempted to use it, it failed.
Apple has offered an explanation for an embarrassing glitch at the launch of its …

As the Earth Changes..


This is reporting from the WASHINGTON POST (https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/after-irma-a-once-lush-gem-in-the-us-virgin-islands-reduced-to-battered-wasteland/2017/09/12/b49532e0-9736-11e7-af6a-6555caaeb8dc_story.html?utm_term=.4b43fb7b69f2) along with a must-read article about the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Irma and the destruction being seen in the islands:
CRUZ BAY, U.S. Virgin Islands — The Asolare restaurant is gone, practically blown off its cliff, along with its world-famous carrot ginger soup. The facade of Margarita Phil’s is a junkyard of yellow and vermilion planks. Multimillion-dollar homes and aluminum huts alike lie in ruins.On the island of St. John, that was only Irma’s beginning. Once a lush gem in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a chain steeped in the lore of pirates and killer storms, this 20-square-mile island is now perhaps the site of Irma’s worst devastation on American soil.Six days after the storm — some say several days too late — …

DOES 'MOTHER!' DESERVE THE PRAISE IT IS GETTING? (A spoiler alert with this one)

The horror film 'mother!' Is getting high praise from noble media affiliations. It is also being billed as an intellectual horror flick with a message.. religious overtones.. social justice ramifications.
Big name star: Lawrence. Big name director: Aronofsky (BLACK SWAN FAME) Shock scene (SPOILER): Infant being eaten.



Let's unpack this.. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/jennifer-lawrences-mother-marks-new-turn-year-prestige-horror-1039071) opines:
Taken purely on its surface, the film is about the horror of hosting ungrateful houseguests. Going beneath that surface, it’s about gruesome male narcissism. Ignoring its text and subtext entirely though, mother! is something more ambitious: A herald of prestige horror at a moment when we might actually need it. It’s September, the calm before the dizzying storm of awards season self-aggrandizement, when we stop thinking of movies as works of art and start thinking of them as show horses; we sac…
