Get to a better state. NOW!

Marketing has taken a darker turn lately.. The other day AARP put out an ad called bath featuring a peaceful scene of a woman bathing her child--the video was called bath. If you listen really closely, the TV in the background featured an announcer talking about martial law being declared in the United States. The AARP ad ends with 'in your new role.' Conspiracy theories did abound--I think perhaps rightfully so.. that was quite a creepy ad when you consider the background noise that is subliminally being implanted into your head..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=22&v=jT6imIqaCQs

But there's a new visitor on the block taking some attention away from the subliminal that AARP put out. This one is a bit more overt. On May 11, a new State Farm ad promises, something will happen.  They also hashtagged their video "#TuneInEarthlings" ..   The alien angle has seemingly riled up some of the quaint places online. Worries and fears that an invasion is imminent.. does Sta…

The long goodbye

Let me fill you in on a little secret: You saw someone today that is going to die.
As a matter of fact, you saw a lot of people that are going to die.
And it all started this morning when you glanced in the mirror and tried to understand the ball of electrons and atoms staring back at you, vibrating in some form of reality that your mind tries to understand. But in reality doesn't get one bit of..

I knew someone who died today. A few days ago, I alluded to a friend who was afflicted with cancer, and who was succumbing to the disease after his battle began to end. He passed away from this world early in the morning, and has become the latest person in my life and close circle of friends and family to meet destiny. I suppose someone out there reading this right now may have the same moment of sadness and grief as well. Death is common, after all..

My heart is distraught and my mind is reeling. I am attempting to understand the significance of life and somehow juxtapose that with the rap…

David Letterman Reflects on 33 Years in Late-NightTelevision

Slide Show | Letterman Prepares to Sign Off A look backstage at the “Late Show” as David Letterman nears the end of his more than 33 years in late-night television.

By DAVE ITZKOFF

APRIL 29, 2015

In a single bound, David Letterman seemed to leap the full length of the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater, racing from backstage as if he’d been thrust forward by the fanfare played by his longtime bandleader, Paul Shaffer, and his CBS Orchestra, and by the rumble of his announcer, Alan Kalter, bellowing his name — “Daaaaay-vid Leh-terrrr-maaaaaaaan!”

It was a routine Mr. Letterman, 68, has performed countless times but will repeat…

Avengers: Age of summer movies

Ticket sales for AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON are already defeating the first 2012 film's numbers.. It's an early projection, but if this continues, this film is going to have a solid weekend that may lead to some box office records. The summer movie season indeed begins in May. And consider this: Age of Ultron advance tickets comprised 84% of Movieticket.com’s sales between April 27 and April 28..  It has been the number 1 film in every country it opens in so far. FURIOUS 7 may have been a hit. But a few AVENGERS are about to change that..

Purge Splurge

When horror movies meet reality, we are there to contemplate it..

There were lots of 'purge' stories making the round on Google. The word was trending since the Baltimore bedlam began.. that is because groups of teens, we are told, were posting signs saying that there would be a 'purge' on Monday night. We saw the riots that developed.  The BALTIMORE SUN reports about how cops think the purge notion and plans came straight from the horror movie. 

This is not the first time the term purge has been in the news. In 2014, several 'purge' fears were prevalent after rumors circulated in cities across American of similar plans for violence, without any materializing.

 The movie THE PURGE, however, is now directly being BLAMED by some for the violence in the city..

This time in Baltimore, perhaps, as opposed to the past 'purge' meme warnings, violence did materialize. But to blame a movie? Perhaps this is just a chance for the media to drum up more fear over the su…

Midnight strikes again, Art Bell relationship back on with Keith Rowland

Art Bell posted a message to his  Facebook feed today informing fans that once again he has resumed his professional relationship with his webmaster, Keith Rowland.

Yesterday Bell posted a somewhat apocalyptic message stating that Rowland was quitting and that the program Midnight in the Desert may not continue without his presence to assist with legal and technical issues. Rowland also reportedly was going to give up the dark matter radio network...

Today things reversed course.. Bell posted this message showcasing that's a relationship was back





Fans are undoubtedly dizzied by the developments over the past 72 hours. Website hackings, cryptic Noory messages. And now a public battle playing out in real time--battles in showbiz thst typically take place behind the scenes.

The BBC however is reporting this at the moment:
American officials have denied media reports that a US cargo ship had been seized by the Iranian navy.

The Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV network had reported that a US vessel had been seized and taken to an Iranian port.

However, the Pentagon spokesman said the vessel involved was flagged to the Marshall Islands and that no Americans were on board

Rowland with the punches: Keith calls it quits, Art Bell may too

If it's not a website being hacked, it's a quitting. Tonight, Art Bell announced to fans that his friend for years and webmaster, Keith Rowland, is calling it quits. With his absence, Bell hints, there is a less of a chance he will return to the air this summer for the planned July MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT.

In full, Bell writes,

Announcement
I am sorry to announce that Keith Rowland has informed me tonight that he no
longer wants to move forward (he quit). This follows a conversation I had with him in which I asked him to not snap at people. I was concerned because he was in charge of the Business side of the deal which is a lot of work and involves dealing with people. Business is built on relationships. He said the stress of all this was to much for him which is understandable because there is a great deal to do on his side. He further told me that he will turn his Network over to somebody else. All this was as much a shock to me as I am sure it is to you.

As a result of this, it i…

US lowers fluoride levels in drinking water for first time in over 50 years

Apparently it's causing white spots on teeth.
Story here:

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/apr/27/fluoride-levels-us-drinking-water-lowered-splotchy-teeth

Not mentioned: the fact that fluoride cuts through concrete and the studies showcasing a lowering of IQ and ineffectiveness of doing anything to help teeth when ingested ... topical is a different story.

Currently over 70% of Americans get fluoride in their water. And that's not counting soda and beer.

There have long been claims of a cancer relationship to the chemical..

And now the government is taking it down a notch.
Because of white spots of course. Not that other stuff..

George Noory investigates

With the thrilling day of high drama at BELLGAB, Sunday night just won't end quietly.. Hours ago, Bellgab redirected to George Noory's COASTTOCOASTAM.COM, but tonight Noory himself is posting messages on the site that was hacked earlier.. Minus the 'crown' avatar, Noory stuck with the koala bear. He wrote,
Rest assured folks we were just as baffled as you and were conducting an investigation to see if my site had any unusual activity its bizarre
He additionally addressed the concern by some that he was threatening a 'war' with Bell's fans.. Noory wrote,
Not war with bellgab lol I meant were are about ready for war in the middleast yetpeople were concerned about my avatar
In the spirit of the increasingly tense verbal battle as the July 20th MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT premiere, Art Bell wrote,
Hey George, when your done with your investigation perhaps you can help out with the St Louis PD internal probe.
Bell added,

Bellgab back after FTP nightmare

HIGH DRAMA ONLINE..

After hours of mysterious events leading to the vanishing act of BELLGAB, it has returned..

Users were stunned late Saturday night when BELLGAB began redirecting to Coast to Coast AM's official website.

We can now confirm that someone hacked into the BELLGAB server and changed coding to create the redirect. Even more, the attack appears to have come from an international source.
There may be legal ramifications--it is illegal to do such activity.
However, the return of BELLGAB will end rampant speculation that the site's owner sold out for a quick penny to Premiere Radio Networks..

Now as far as that 'war' Noory warned of?
While there is no evidence that pinpoints this attack from the direction of Noory or cohorts, it's perhaps the opening battle truly of a long war before July..

A RISING DEATH TOLL IN NEPAL

The numbers continue to climb after the massive 7.8 quake.. Now it stands at 2,336 and most come from Nepal itself, with neighboring countries such as India reporting dozens ..

There have been powerful aftershocks making the horror of clean up and rescue missions even worse. There was a strong 6.7 quake just today--considered an aftershock but certainly strong enough to be considered a major quake as well.. There newest earthquake today also set off more avalanches on Mount Everest, according to those climbing..

THERE'S SOMETHING ROTTEN AT BELLGAB (UPDATED)

UPDATE HERE: BELL GAB BACK





ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

THIS IS A  DEVELOPING STORY

A HACKING?
A SALE?!
A WAR!?

The popular message board BELLGAB.COM is current redirecting to COAST TO COAST AM's official website.   The website Georgenoorysucks.com has also been given a direct  to the same..

There does seem to be a hint of intrigue, however, just by judging from the link that BELLGAB now directs to:



DMCA ACQUIRE?
It would be mighty strange, however, for a DMCA battle to play out this way. It's certainly not typical that websites immediately redirect to another with the DMCA note .. Typically a battle over legal issues can take days or weeks, plus the owner of a site would be updated by the ISP prior to any takedown.

The other night when George Noory took to BELLGAB, he used the term war. Perhaps he wasn't showing his cards and the war indeed has begun on the home turf of Art Bell fans..

From NPPA.ORG, here are two easy steps for taking down a website for copyright infringement.. From the site:

A TALE OF TWO 'NIGHTS'

M Night Shyalaman has had hits. He has had duds.. He has had the LADY IN THE WATER..
This year, he's back, and as  usual, a mixed bag of fans and foes are beginning to study each second of the trailer for the new film THE VISIT..

From what we know, the movie's premise revolves around children going to see their grandchildren at a rural Pennsylvania farm.. After some strange goings on, it becomes clear that things get weird after 9:30..

The trailer for the movie is here:


Showcasing the multitude of viewpoints on the new film's potential, we can offer up links to two alternative sources of information with varied opinions on the trailer. Laura Bradley writes that the trailer is unintentionally hilarious in SLATE.. She writes, 
Anyone who sat through The Happening might not be able to believe it, but Shyamalan has managed to make a horror movie about something even less scary than plants: grandma and grandpa.
Mike Schuster with IFC takes a different approach, asking if this could b…

Prosecutors in Milan reveal: Vatican was 2010 terror target

ITALIAN PROSECUTORS SAY THAT THE SAME ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS WHO CARRIED OUT A BOMB ATTACK IN PAKISTAN ALSO TARGETED THE VATICAN..

MORE: AP REPORTS:
The Vatican downplayed the significance of the alleged plot.

"From what it appears, this concerns a hypothesis that dates from 2010 which didn't occur. It has therefore no relevance today and no reason for particular concern," said the Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman.
But what does exist is also evident in recent news accounts from the Holy capitol of the Catholic world..

SUCH AS:
DATELINE FEBRUARY 2015: VATICAN ON HIGH ALERT
DATELINE JANUARY 2015: WORRIES OF A POPE NEEDING TO EXIT ROME

There is no doubt that Popes have always been global targets for terror and threats.. but this Pope seemingly has captured the imagination of the faithful but also the hated of others..
The 2010 Vatican threat now released to the public is only a reminder of the threats which exist--threats that have been openly discussed for months as the P…

"We are about ready to go to war"

Richard Sryett was hosting Coast to Coast AM while George Noory attended an event in San Francisco last night. Though his interview with Marie Jones on mind control and cults may have been worthy, the real show was taking place in a virtual world. George Noory posted on Bellgab after months of offline time..

Noory's return seemingly stemmed from Art Bell's message on Facebook critical of Noory's use of the term 'wanna take a ride,' a catch line long associated with the Coast Bell incarnation voiced by Ross Mitchell since the 1990s. Noory addressed the charge of theft, saying, "sorry but Ive been using it since my days in St.louis and picked it up on Coast in 2001 when I started filling in for Art. We both got it from the movie Contact. Ross even had liners for us. Nothing sinister here folks."

Users pounded quickly. But it was Steve Warner, the BELLGAB user known as BATEMAN, who seemed to get the 'goatsie' the most.

Warner began his own radio program…

Nepal shakes

INITIAL NEWS DISPATCH FROM CNN
A powerful earthquake has struck Nepal less than 50 miles from the capital, Kathmandu, the U.S. Geological Survey said Saturday. It occurred at a depth of less than two miles, which is considered shallow.

The shaking was rated as "strong" to "severe" on the USGS ShakeMap. CNN sister network CNN-IBN is reporting that buildings are down and roads are out.

The ride begins

Art Bell's MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT begins in July. But the tension is already building before the online live podcast debut.

Nights ago, Coast to Coast AM host George Noory used the famous coined Bell term 'wanna take a ride.' It did not go unnoticed by the users of BELLGAB, who pounded on Noory's attempt to borrow the term--whether knowingly or unknowingly. Bell himself chimed in with a fiery Facebook post slamming Noory for the use of the statement.

The comment, in total,
My goodness, it has come to my attention that George Noory has started to use my signature line, Wanna take a Ride? It is just desperate and pathetic. Every time you hear him say that please remember July 20th when Midnight in the Desert starts. I would steal some of his lines, but that would be Petty Theft.

Art Bell
The comment was quickly liked by hundreds of fans.
The ride is going bust on Coast.
The real attraction begins again on July 20, 2015.

THE SUICIDE JOKER: Leto a villain that Gotham City needs?

For weeks, SUICIDE SQUAD Joker Jared Leto has been hinting as to how his version of the Clown Prince of Crime will look..
Tonight director David Ayer released the official LETO full makeup JOKER on Twitter..

Debate has ensued as to which JOKER is best.. Nicholson rates high. Ledger scores well.. even Romero is on the map.. Hammil's voice too.

But LETO?
Two camps have seemingly developed on the character and role.. One who loves it. The other who questions ..

I am joining the less popular but more practical third camp: The group that will just anxiously wait in anticipation to see if LETO can become the arch villain that Gotham City needs..

True Crime and true legends: The scariest stories to tell in the dark are based on the darkest hearts of men

Reality is scarier than fiction.. that is exemplified in a documentary that you may be interested on NETFLIX called KILLER LEGENDS. Chiller's documentary about true crimes, murders, and where some of our modern fears originate. You may learn something new.. and despite the fact no candy was ever poisoned on Halloween, the "CANDY MAN" section will still give you enough pause to check your kids' candy anyway..

I recommend the documentary for those interested in true crimes and urban legends.. this brings to light the reasons why we are freaked by hook hands, by masked killers.. and quite frankly, by people.

Among the things you may learn that you didn't know previously includes--besides no candy ever being poisoned for trick or treaters--are these facts: No babysitter killings ever happened in big numbers.. despite a number of movies being made showcasing it. The Texarkana killings are creepy--and even more creepy may be the yearly film festival showing THE TOWN THAT…

FEELING LUCKY: Has GOOGLE found Nessie?

Go to GOOGLE today and click on their banner.. it will take you to a series of articles about how GOOGLE employed its technology to try to locate the potentially fake but yet elusive NESSIE, the Loch Ness Monster.  You can now search for NESSIE from your computer using GOOGLE Street View.  Google mounted a Street View camera on a boat to give people a 360-degree view of the 23-mile-long loch..

Give it a try. It's fun.

One picture, in particular, may create a firestorm of speculation about the long-living legendary creature:
It could be a log. Debris.. reflection.. refuse. It .. NESSIE. You be the judge
And you can continue your search with GOOGLE. The engine bringing the paranormal and weird right onto your own device. The power to find NESSIE now rests with you.
Go find..

Not even POPE FRANCIS could fix this number

If you want to know why Catholic Churches and schools are closing throughout the United States, look no further than this number released by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: $2.9 billion.

With a B.

That is the dollar amount that the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church has cost since 2004. It's an insurmountable number, and it continues to drain the resources of the religion..

From the CATHOLIC CULTURE story filed today:
Only 59% of those funds were allotted to settlements ($62.9 million) and therapy for abuse victims ($7.7 million). The remaining funds were spent on attorneys’ fees ($28.8 million), support for offenders ($15.4 million), and other costs ($4.2 million), according to the 2014 “Report on the Implementation of the Charter for Protection of Children and Young People.”

These expenses brought the total cost of the clerical abuse scandal to American dioceses and religious institutes between 2004 and mid-2014 to $2,895,629,230, according to the data in the curr…

The hypothetical humanity killer

I have been following this NASA website recently: http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/pdc15/ .. if you fear a life-ending asteroid, maybe you should too.

The first and most important thing to realize about the page: It is all imagined. The asteroid and work to stop it from hitting Earth is all hypothetical.  But with each pretend statement about the asteroid and the would be trajectory, it seems very real. That is because the words on http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/pdc15/, though now unreal, could be accurate one day soon.  We could be facing a mass extinction event. Something bigger than Chelyabinsk, something mightier. It may hit land and cause an impact zone crater on Earth. Or it could hit water and flood coastlines with a massive wave never seen during our lifetime.

The Planetary Defense Conference is a meeting of scientists, engineers, policy-makers, and people in Italy. They are playing an asteroid pre-war-game. Mapping out the possibilities and speculating on the impact aftermath.

Plumbers of Walmart: Sometimes the conspiracy is as simple as that

There have been a number of theories concerning the reasons behind WALMART suddenly closing 5 stores for 'plumbing issues.'  Among the many things being considered by the speculators who theorize in such conspiracy:

Jade Helm related.
FEMA camps
Underground tunnels to protect us from a nuclear/bio attack
The elite prepping their bunkers for the yet unannounced asteroid
The end of civilization as we know it.

But .. perhaps CLYDE LEWIS was on to something the other night when he had an alternative alternative theory: It was all about the money..

Just yesterday, a report was filed by CNNMONEY about the United Food and Commercial Workers union filing an injunction with the National Labor Relations Board to fight the closure.. From CNN:
Walmart unexpectedly closed five stores last week in Texas, California, Florida and Oklahoma, for what it said were severe plumbing problems. That put 2,200 people out of work.

But the United Food and Commercial Workers union filed an injunction with the Nat…

My newfound respect for the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

...AND I DON'T MEAN THE MICHAEL BAY INCARNATION..
I am talking about the cartoon..
AND I DON'T MEAN THE 20TH CENTURY VERSION..

I rarely speak much on here about the cartoon world.  But thanks to fate and me having a 4-year-old TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES enthusiast, I am really getting to know the new NICKELODEON version of the show. We actively hunt down and try to acquire any new TMNT Nick toys at whatever unnamed store of choice. Some are pretty tough to find.  Our family has been hitting some roadblocks..maybe AMAZON.COM is our only hope.

The show itself is amazing.  I mean that. Not just because my son loves it.. not just because I am a TMNT fan.. but the storyline of the NICK cartoon is rough and tumble..ups and downs.. action packed and moving at times. It's well done, and it has spawned something personally for me..

THE VISIT poster makes rounds after REDDIT posting

A user on REDDIT posted a teaser poster to an upcoming M Night Shyalaman film THE VISIT set for release on September 11, 2015.  The comments thread on the photo has taken on a life of its own..

Shyamalan 's THE VISIT tells a story of a brother and sister (Ed Oxenbould and Olivia De Jonge) who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip by Mom, Kathryn Hahn. The trailer for the film shows things going quite fine.. then tension builds when the two children discover that their grandparents are involved in something deeply disturbing.

Hence the warning: Don't leave your room after 9:30 pm.

A number of people online have noted the similarities in appearance between the VISIT poster and THE VILLAGE ..

DOLLS ARE CREEPY. But have you met Peggy?

There are haunting dolls. And there is Peggy.. And if you believe the hype surrounding this latest paranormal internet sensation, she is so powerful in her fear that she causes nasuea, headaches. And heart attacks.

Some reported visions of mental institutions and abuse. Others said they became anxious. And one said she experienced a heart attack..

It's all in a face: Wes Craven's perpective on changes in FREDDY's mug for NEW NIGHTMARE revealed

Freddy Krueger is still one of the most haunting horror movie icons of all time.. Robert Englund made that so, without him there would have been no sequels. But without the intricate and frightening makeup job that teams performed over the course of several movies, there would have been additionally no marketing and artwork that has accompanied the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise--minus the newest incarnation that Hollywood tried to pass on to fans..

The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER interviewed Wes Craven about a number of different topics.. but the makeup of FREDDY'S face made the most headlines. Craven said he had no role in the MTV's changing of the GHOSTFACE face.. And more, reported by Emmet McDermott:
"In general," Craven says, reflecting on his own experience with the Scream sequel and beyond, "we didn't mess with the mask at all. It's something we didn't try to change. With Freddy [Krueger] and the New Nightmare (below right), I felt that I probably sh…

FURIOUS 7 1at 3rd

FURIOUS 7 continues to rampage the box office, pushing to $1.15 BILLION with a B worldwide .. it's making serious cash in CHINA, and despite a 51% dropoff since last week in America, it was still the number one film of the weekend..

Newcomers PAUL BLART and horror flick UNFRIENDED were no match for the spirit of Paul Walker. Or the CGI Paul Walker, in this case..

MALL COP 2 did better than some expected, coming in second place with $24 mil--not as good as his $30+  mil opener of the first film.. This movie was hit with horrid reviews. But often those pratfalls make people --not reviewers--last a little. But a full movie of pratfalls only? That doesn't sound great..

UNFRIENDED had a great word of mouth and got good traction from a youthful brigade of horror fans.. it earned $16 mil strong--strong because it was one of the best opening weekends for a horror film since THE CONJURING. Yes it's been that long..

While IT FOLLOWS was hoping for a wider release and good word of mouth,…

WHAT'S YOUR FREQUENCY NORWAY?

Norway is about to set a trend. If you haven't heard, they are going to become the first nation in the world to officially dump FM--frequency modulation--radio.

FM, around since the 1930s globally, has been a steadfast friend to people driving or radio fans for decades.

It's obvious to say: The popularity of FM has waned recently.. though many still listen, they only do so often because they still don't have other options..

Options such as DAB. Digital Audio Broadcasting. That is the new system being embraced by Norway. The Ministry of Culture is making the switch. By 2017, FM will start being phased out region by region.  But the decision also seems obvious. In Norway, DAB listening now exceeds that of FM.

The squeeze is now on..
Whether other nations quickly or slowly follow Norway's lead is up for time to decide. It's clear that others will. And slowly by surely, as people give their love to the NET version of streaming instead of the FM version of sometimes staticy …

The catch up weekend: It Follows

I am finally able to say I feel more on top of the horror genre. Friday night I saw BABADOOK. Last night at 945 in a movie theater, I saw IT FOLLOWS.

And it did follow indeed.

By now you surely know the concept. Kids have sex to transmit not an STD but a demonic other worldy force. Then it follows them. And wants to kill them..

Let me first stop before anything else and reflect on what I was told IT FOLLOWS was, and then give me thoughts. IT FOLLOWS was the horror movie of the decade, some said. Other painted a haunting picture of a movie that hits deep, that means something, speaks volumes about poverty and modern day economic problems, youthful angst and casual sex without thought. The horror flick has scored well on a number of different websites. Movie reviewers found little about it to be critical ..

So in the constant spirit of daring to be different, I had to find something, right?
Well it was tough.

There really wasn't anything done wrong in IT FOLLOWS, just a lot of things done…

Carrie Fisher unloads: Drunken scenes, Lando's dirty talk, and hangovers from hell

The UK TELEGRAPH is among the sources to compile from of the best quotes from a recent 'Date with a Princess' STAR WARS celebration.. Carrie Fisher became, as usual, the honest Leia.. Those in attendance were most likely either shocked or thoroughly happy at the juicy gossip on the display with Fisher and her French Bulldog, Gary, on stage..

As the TELEGRAPH reports, some of Fisher's own words.

She got drunk with the ROLLING STONES before the Cloudy City scene filming..

“And they’re a partying bunch of guys, and though I didn’t drink at the time, to be kind of amenable, or whatever, I drank. I used to say I’m allergic to drinking, and this would have been a demonstration of that. And we stayed up pretty late. Charlie [Watts], that one, he didn’t have a lot of facial expressions. He’s like the Darth Vader of the Stones.


“And we stayed up really late and got to the set about two hours later. And we weren’t hung over, we were still in our cups. And if you watch the movie you can …

The Plumbing of Walmart story in perspective

Walmart suddenly closed stores in a number of states last week.. All for what the corporation called plumbing problems. Every news account however details that no plumbing permits are being sought..workers in Walmart were suddenly without work.

Conspiracy theorists went hog wild.

JADE HELM!!
FEMA CAMPS!!
ASTEROID STRIKE!!!

If you want to hear an alternate, sensible, and true podcast about, I have an idea.

Last night Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis tackled the WALMART closing issue in a refreshing way, Clyde Lewis correctly said that this has nothing to do with FEMA camps or Jade Helm.. instead, if you look at the stores WALMART suddenly closed for the 'plumbing' issues, it was all locations where workers had previously protested low wages. Yes, there is more to the story. But conspiracy theorists have gone overboard. Sometimes the answer is much simpler than a vast conspiracy.
But we also know that the official plumbing story doesn't hold an ounce of water..

I Finally saw BABADOOK. And it made me quite sad

By now you most likely have too. And even more, if you didn't, you read enough to decide if would even appreciate the film.

I won't write a long winded review at this point, simply because I'm late to the game. But I will say that it was a little painful to watch.  The horror element is interesting. We are deflected at first, in a sense, and told to fear the BABADOOK.  The mother continues to try to burn the book containing the BABADOOK's words. The child, in this case a remarkable Australian actor Noah Wiseman who I think carried the film much better than even the main star Essie Davis, is also battling demons. His demons aren't typical, though. He has fears like other children.. he has sadness and grief. And in this film, he has a clearly mentally ill mother.

I am going to perhaps spoil it a bit, but not intentionally. Read on if you want..

I think the BABADOOK is a farce. I don't believe it to be real.. even more, Essie Davis's character Amelia is a former …

Life and death viewed by the angry young man

Cancer is a horrid circumstance.. a outright awful ailment, and a continuous plague that hits without forgiveness or mercy.

I trust that you, the reader, most likely have been faced with a family member of friend succumbing to this affliction.. There are endless tales of horror from children's hospitals and nursing homes. No one can escape this scourge, so often..

I am writing this brief post tonight to get some emotion off my chest.

Recently, my uncle and godfather passed away after too long of a fight with cancer. He fought to stay alive. Fate would have it another way. When he lost his battle, he left behind a family of people who have yet to stop completely grieving his death.

And now, this night, a close friend of mine finds himself in an unsettling place: A hospital bed with tubes and monitors attached to him.. he beat one form of cancer only to find out it spread to another place. Suddenly, he has taken a major turn for the worse..

I hate cancer.
I hate all disease actually.

FORD IN HIS FLIVVER: THE MODEL T ALIEN NEAR THE SUN?

I found a few interesting links in my night owl reading last night about UFOs .. The UFO SIGHTINGS BLOGSPOT peaked my interest with a post about NASA’s sun observation satellite SOHO (the Solar and Heliosperic Observatory) on April 12, 2015 capturing some sort of a "T" shaped object or thing near the sun.  The story was picked up by BEFORE IT'S NEWS..

Also, a few years back, some speculated that there were photos of a UFO 'powering up' from the sun. With images, they said then, to prove it.

There have been some other recent oddities near the sun. Such as this from January, when a speed of light 'UFO' was captured and shown in a YouTube video..  In March, there was a report that NASA may have been attempting to smudge away evidence of a UFO near the sun.. STREETCAP1 was the source on that.

But this T shape is interesting. Because to some it could be the proof they need of a UFO. To others, it could be a hoax, scam, or simply camera error..
