DREAD CENTRAL gives us a list of the top movies for the winter season–horror with cold and chill as the background theme of the flick. The list here..
I disagree–you heard that right–with virtually the entire list.
The biggest problem is the lack of inclusion of my all time favorite snow/cold related movie: STORM OF THE CENTURY, by Stephen King. It’s the amazing near day-long experience, one that’s perfect for a night stuck in because of snow or a day held up because of closings.. Andre Linoge walking the streets of a town during a blizzard, looking for what he wants to go away. That’s scary. The list from DREAD CENTRAL, to me at least, not scary.
I am sure you have your favorite too.. Mine will always be the STORM..
KABC in Los Angeles, the big Cumulus station that recently picked up the MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT Art Bell stream, is offering up 12 hours of programming Thanksgiving that features the best of Art Bell’s radio program.
Perhaps even better news, the programming isn’t being picked at random or a computer, it’s from Bell himself.
From the press release: BELL said, “We are thrilled to be back on the great 790 KABC, where we had great success. My loyal fans will love that I’m personally hand picking the best 12 hours of out-of-this-world radio.”
Operations Dir. DREW HAYES added, “This ART BELL special goes great with turkey and stuffing, and is the perfect program for families at home or traveling, to enjoy and be spellbound together.” - See more at: http://ift.tt/1jdve47
Iraqi forces prevented a major Islamic State (previously ISIS/ISIL) attack as they found and disabled 18 booby-trapped dolls with explosives inside just north of the capital Baghdad. The plot targeted Shia Muslims going on an upcoming religious pilgrimage.
This from RT: The diabolical plan was to scatter all the dolls alongside the road between Baghdad and Karbala during the Arbaeen pilgrimage, which is a Shia Muslim annual religious observance.
Millions of Shia Muslims walk the path every year. In 2014, there was a new record number of pilgrims, totaling 17.5 million people. I attempt to recoil from news like this. On one hand, if it’s true, it’s depravity at its finest. And on the other side of the coin, it could always be state propaganda from someone who is trying to compel people with morality into a position of war theater.
Regardless, as a whole, there is something chilling about the perversion of children in this world–the suffering of children.. the …
I often read about the ‘Inuit reports that the earth has wobbled,’ or shifted.. rumors online say that we just aren’t where we used to be. That the sun sets somewhere else..that the moon isn’t looking right in the sky anymore.
Scientists, when they actually talk about it, dismiss it all.. They use reason and logic to say most of these rumors are false..
The website ALL NEWS PIPELINE has been a mainstay in the conspiracy world online for years.. I read it with interest. I take it all with massive grains of salt but often sprinkle on some pepper to ignite my imagination.

The USGS recorded 17 Oklahoma earthquakes since the 4.7, including a 4.0 magnitude near Crescent, and the 4.1 magnitude near Medford.
The quakes recorded as low as 2.6 magnitude (two Thursday near Cherokee and Medford), but also include six recorded earlier today:
- 2.7 magnitude 6:07 a.m. about 9 miles south-southwest of Cherokee
- 2.8 magnitude 9:42 a.m. about 15 miles north-northwest of Fairview
- 3.1 magnitude 3:11 p.m. about 15 miles east of Cherokee
- 3.2 magnitude 2:06 a.m. about 18 miles north-northwest of Fairview
- 3.5 magnitude 12:12 a.m. about 9 miles southwest of Cherokee
- 3.5 magnitude 5:22 a.m. about 9 miles southwest of Cherokee.
Remember the good ole’ days when people who said gas well fracking would cause earthquakes were called loons and conspiracy theorists? Environmentalist wackos and alarmists who didn’t deserve press? I remember those days… Happy to have been one of the few …
From the BUSINESS INSIDER: As it currently stands, no indications from Yahoo have suggested the company is re-thinking its Alibaba spin-off plan.
One Yahoo investor told us that the board and Yahoo’s management team appears not to be thinking about this as owners of the company — and therefore stewards of shareholder capital — but as a management team that simply wants to keep itself in place.
In other words, this investor sees Yahoo’s board in something resembling self-preservation mode rathe…
And this: There’s a red dwarf about 35 light-years from here that’s spewing powerful, life crushing solar flares into space. These types of stellar objects are fairly common, leading to speculation that our galaxy is less habitable than we thought.
I don’t know if I buy into the argument that the universe is teaming with life.. And likewise don’t buy that there’s none.
But what if–what if!–we really are the only planet in the entire universe that has life! What if it’s us.. Just us. And accidental mishap causing a creation of life and eventually creatures who love and hate. Perhaps the idea we are alone is a million times more frightening than the prospects we are not..
Like Brad Miska, I never called when I was a kid. I remember my cousins and I watching these commercials late at night and thinking about doing it.. but that was the 20th century. The time of TOLL calls and no internet.. such a strange and different time compared to now.
AS though the news of the world wasn't freaky enough, Pope Francis is adding fodder to the already mighty load of end times porn that has overloaded our society from all religious perspectives.. From a report November 15 (I missed it until now), this information: Francis unequivocally recognized the Islamist ideology behind the attacks, denouncing the use of God’s name to justify the brutal attacks as “blasphemy.”
Commenting on Sunday’s Scripture readings, the Pope said that Jesus’ preaching about the end of the world contains “apocalyptic elements, like war, famine, and cosmic catastrophes.”
“Who’ll love the devil?… Who’ll song his song?… Who will love the devil and his song?… I’ll love the devil!… I’ll sing his song!… I will love the devil and his song!… Who’ll love the devil?… Who’ll kiss his tongue?… Who will kiss the devil on his tongue?… I’ll love the devil!… I’ll kiss his tongue!… I will kiss the devil on his tongue!… Who’ll love the devil?… Who’ll sing his song?… I WILL LOVE THE DEVIL AND SING HIS SONG!…”
These were the words being sung as the Paris terror attack began in the packed concert hall in France.. The band was from the United States called Eagles of Metal Death. The song is ‘Kiss the devil.’
EXTRA EXTRA: A RELATIONSHIP BUDS? CNN reports Presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin had a markedly warmer exchange at the G20 in Turkey this week than in other recent encounters, and both sides indicated a willingness to do more to work together.
My Facebook page is lit up this evening by people on both sides of the fence.. declaring their opinions.. illuminating their profile pictures in French colors.. signing petitions for and against the refugee influx..
One person even humorously posted the Tom Petty song dealing with such topics..
From the FOX NEWS report: “Separately, Fox News has learned that four credible, ISIS-linked social media accounts began sharing messages 72 hours before the Paris attack, including images of weapons, the Eiffel tower, as well as blessings for the attackers’ mission. A military intelligence source says the social media traffic is now seen as evidence the three teams had gone operational.”
I went to an auction this past weekend.. a bit of an emotional roller coaster sort of began and ended at the right time in my life.. at the moment when I understand things better than before.. at a point where I can forgive, forget, and focus nostalgic memories when needed for perspective.
