Perhaps now we are seeing why ROTTEN TOMATOES didn't release JUSTICE LEAGUE ratings until opening day: The numbers are weak. Scoring below 40%..

Bird lands on Sanders' podium during Portland rally

Bird lands on Sanders' podium during Portland rally :

I watched this a few times today.. The bird landing came before his victories in tonight’s caucuses …



If it’s a sparrow it’s a good sign. If it’s a finch it’s even better..



And when things like this happen–these seemingly strange coincidences surrounding seemingly mundane events–it reminds me of how the bigger picture exists.. How there seems to be a dramatically bigger affair that takes place around us..



How maybe… No coincidences really do exist and a higher order is in power.



Or…. It was just a bird. Just a moment. Just a strange event that will be forgotten by tomorrow.


THE FINCH THAT STOLE BERNIE

Earlier today I reported that Bernie Sanders had a symbolic event: A sparrow landed on his podium.

Perhaps that is wrong. It looks like, instead, it was a finch..

bernie bird

From a contributor on BEFORE IT'S NEWS:
When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of prosperous and joyous times ahead. Finches are an omen of high energy and bright days on the horizon. Natives held the finch as a symbol of upcoming celebration. Finches are song birds, and their music heralds the bounty of spring. When the finch sings to our awareness it is a beckoning to unleash our own song. If we’ve been concealing our brilliance from the world – the finch is a sign to start making our value more audible and available to others. Its bird meaning deals with sociability too, and if the finch comes into your life it may be a signal to get more involved with social activities.

The birds feel the Bern..

LIGHTS OUT TRAILER

Keep your lights on!


Now doesn't that look impressive?

David F. Sandberg directed from a screenplay by Eric A. Heisserer’s (The Thing, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Final Destination 5), which was based on Sandberg’s 2013 short film..

That short film, as well, was highly praised on this website and referenced often.. When we learned that LIGHTS OUT was going to be a feature film from JAMES WAN of Conjuring fame, we nearly jumped out of our chairs..

And yes, there is criticism already.. Some are claiming they are tired of the 'jump scare' routine.. others, who praise the short film for the highly ingenious story and ability to create fear and panic all in four minutes don't completely get sold on this trailer..

TIME WILL TELL..

WAN IS IN CONTROL.

SCARES WILL HAPPEN.

The symbolism of Bernie’s Bird

The strange election.. on the GOP side, a sludgefest over the size of Trump’s genitals and how many women CRUZ (ugh) may have slept with..

On the Democratic side? Birds perhaps doves in disguise are now landing on Bernie Sanders..

Since Bernie brought it up, there may indeed by symbolism concerning this bird.. Maybe not a dove in disguise, but something else. 

There is something in symbolism and animals called totem animals.. a sparrow, which this looks like, could be a symbol of self worth.. 

This from a site professing some knowledge about totem animals>:

The sparrow is one of the most common birds around,
yet it has flourished when other species have failed.
It reflects self-worth.
If a Sparrow totem has entered your life, ask yourself if you know your own self-worth.
The sparrow will show you that even a common little bird can triumph.

The song sparrow reflects the chakra energy awakening from the heart and throat.
It reminds us to sing out our own song of dignity and self-worth.

During the Middle Ages, the Sparrow was the symbol
of peasants and the lower classes.
In Ancient Britain, the Sparrow was the symbol of friendly household spirits.
To the Greeks, it was the pet of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love.

Perhaps a little songbird felt a sense of security around Bernie Sanders…?


NO STOPPING IT NOW: BATMAN VS SUPERMAN BOX OFFICE DOLLARS

The verdicts are coming in.. those of the people I now who saw BATMAN VS SUPERMAN are highly upset.. one person’s reaction was shock when she learned that the film cost almost a billion bucks *($800 mil to be exact)* to create.. a monstrosity of a borefest..

BUT BUT BUT.. stop the presses, here’s the latest bat news: Easter weekend take moneywise for the flick is going to be wide and big. $171 predicted for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, despite the bad reviews. Despite the bad reactions. Despite Ben Affleck. The $171 mil will be minus Affleck’s children, as well..

The movie’s release is pre-summer. The spring Cherry Blossoms are not even done blooming. The genius of Warner Bros was to release a film like this – comic book, bombs, fights, explosions, Wonder Woman in a skimpy outfit – when kids were home from school. During a three day weekend when teens had nothing to do but go to the movies.. The marketing was also amazing with product placement everywhere, including in the cereal aisle for my five year old to have the choice of BATMAN or SUPERMAN flavor..

And finally, despite the misgivings and criticism, Affleck is scoring some points for his role as Wayne. Maybe not from me. But from enough people.

All that said, the movie is getting 30% at Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is also most likely going to drop next week after this initial trial run in over 4000 theaters as the Easter Bunny hops along..

Oh…..second place this weekend? Take a guess. The mighty ZOOTOPIA…


'The 100' Showrunner Apologizes for Character Death

'The 100' Showrunner Apologizes for Character Death:

The LGBT community went mad when a main character–a gay character at that–on the show was killed off in dramatic fashion. 

The part that was perhaps most unbelievable was how 

Jason Rothenberg and others billed the show as a must watch on social media, persuading people to halt their plans and tune into the program for a special episode. When they did, they saw 

Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey), the lesbian commander of the Grounders and the love interest of main character Clarke (Eliza Taylor), was killed by a stray bullet meant for Clarke..

He broke his silence on a MEDIUM story..

And the fan reaction–even on the Medium article–continue to be harsh..

The WRAP reports,



Rothenberg retreated into silence on social media in the days and weeks following the episode, while a large sector of the show’s LGBT fanbase channeled their anger and social media power into collecting more than $45,000 — and counting — for the anti-discrimination Trevor Project. Rothenberg also defended his story choices, saying, “The things that divide us as global citizens today don’t matter in this show. And that’s the beauty of science-fiction. We can make a point without preaching. We can say that race, sexuality, gender and disability should not divide us. We can elevate our thinking and take you on a helluva ride at the same time.” 

If nothing else, this displays the risks for people using social media to advance something.. especially if that something is going to make a lot of people very very angry..

Socially media at your own social risk…


REPORTS INDICATE THAT NUKE GUARD WAS SHOT AND HIS BADGE WAS STOLEN

THIS DEVELOPING NOW..  Two days after bomb attacks at Brussels airport and on a packed metro killed 31 people and injured hundreds, a security guard who worked at a Belgian nuclear plant was murdered and his pass was stolen, Belgian media reported on Saturday.

AN EASTER POEM.Easter feeling upon us.. The cherry blossoms...



AN EASTER POEM.

Easter feeling upon us.. The cherry blossoms bloom.

Grass is getting greener.. The April dangers loom.

Bunnies hop all over, dropping off their treats.

The powers pick up weapons, often nondescript.

It is the Easter season, it should be filled with hope.

But with war and bombs and threats all over,

we can hardly cope.


Two propaganda videos, one day.

North Korea showing a nuclear strike on Washington.. 

The four-minute video clip, titled “Last Chance,” uses computer animation to show what looks like an intercontinental ballistic missile flying through the earth’s atmosphere before slamming into Washington, near what appears to be the Lincoln Memorial. A nuclear explosion follows

ISIS released a video showing an attack and exploding Eiffel Tower in France, 

The video is titled “A message to the Western Kafir [Disbelievers] from the Supporters of the Caliphate.” It’s narrated in English and subtitled in Arabic, and was posted on YouTube and other file-sharing sites.

Researchers Find Fish That Walks the Way Land Vertebrates Do!

Researchers Find Fish That Walks the Way Land Vertebrates Do!:

The missing link has been found?!
A remarkable story..

But now a team of researchers has found a remarkable parallel to one of evolution’s signature events. In a cave in Thailand, they’ve discovered that a blind fish walks the way land vertebrates do.

The waterfall-climbing cave fish, Cryptotora thamicola, has even evolved many of the skeletal features that our ancestors did for walking, including a full-blown pelvis.

“It’s really weird,” said John R. Hutchinson, a biologist at the Royal Veterinary College at the University of London who was not involved in the new study. “It’s a good example of how much fish diversity there’s left to be discovered.”

Brussels attacks bombers DID plan to attack nuclear power station | Daily Mail Online:
Terrorists were preparing an attack on a nuclear power plant and had recorded 12 hours of reconnaissance footage, it has been reported.

The ISIS cell were spying on Belgium’s nuclear power chief, possibly as part of a kidnap plan to force him to let them into an atomic facility, according to newspaper Derniere Heure.

Hours of film of the home of the Research and Development Director of the Belgian Nuclear Programme were discovered in an apartment in Brussels raided by anti-terrorist police following the attack in Paris.

Ceres' Puzzling Bright Spots, Giant Mountain Feature in New Close-Up Photos:

Newly released images captured by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft reveal a close-up look at Ceres’ odd bright spots and giant mountain, and hint at the existence of ice sheets at the dwarf planet’s poles.



It’s a body that had s body of water that froze.. And entire ocean of ice..amazing..
But this bright spot? That’s the perplexing thing.


U.S. hospitals are getting hit by hackers

U.S. hospitals are getting hit by hackers:

Last week, yet another American hospital was tossed into chaos after its computers were infected by hackers.
This time it was Methodist Hospital, an averaged-sized medical facility located in western Kentucky.
Methodist Hospital was operating “in an internal state of emergency” on Friday, according to its website. A section of its computer network had been rendered useless.



While the hospital claimed no patient records were compromised, they didn’t reveal how much in ransomware they paid after the hacking.. One source says 4 bitcoins, translating to roughly over $1000 in today’s dollars..



Ransomware hackers keep things lower priced to ensure a better chance that the ransom will be paid..

‘Batman v Superman’ Review Round-Up: Hero Clash Draws Mixed Reactions

‘Batman v Superman’ Review Round-Up: Hero Clash Draws Mixed Reactions :

The review bloodbath continues for this accident of a film..

My favorite highlights:



Ryan of Uproxx said the movie’s inability to provide entertaining escapism on a grim day in world news was particularly disappointing. “I am gobsmacked by just how dull this movie turned out to be,” he wrote.

Matt Singer of Screencrush said, “In Snyder’s formulation, protecting the world from evil isn’t a gift or a calling; it’s a burden. And that feeling is reflected in the movie itself, a burdensome 150-minute slog about two men fighting over who is in the right when both are very clearly in the wrong.”

The DAWN of bad reviews: The BATMAN VS SUPERMAN embargo lifted..

….more reviews rolling in for the two titans fightin’..

Things aren’t looking good for the caped crusader or man of steel…

As said before, Ben Affleck says he won’t take his kids to see it. Maybe adults need to follow the lead and avoid it as well..

Some notables:

The SYDNEY HERALD in from the international world.. says the movie is unheroic and disappointing.. 

Comic Book Resources says that Wonder Woman cannot save the dull film..

Variety weighs in..

EW..

Some glimmers of hope for ticket sales..


‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Movie Review from ScreenCrush

‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Movie Review from ScreenCrush:

The embargo has been lifted.

And things aren’t pretty..

This from the SCREENCRUSH review:



There’s probably a really interesting movie about the ideological divide between Batman and Superman, but on the basis of Dawn of Justice, I’m not sure Zack Snyder was the man to make it. The questions he asks are too straightforward and the resolution he arrives at after all that talk and too few setpieces is way too simple. Instead of playing up the differences between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, Batman v Superman flattens them. For all his high-horsing about Superman’s transgressions, Batman mows down loads of people in his Batmobile and Batwing (both equipped with enormous machine guns) and he beats up bad guys with alarming ferocity (he paralyzes at least one guy for life, if the poor dude survives at all). At times, Affleck’s Bruce Wayne seems less worried about Clark Kent’s powers than jealous of them. This Batman may be right about this Superman, but he’s also a hypocrite. If he’d stop trying to kill him for two minutes, he’d realize how much they have in common. Batman and Superman have no reason to fight. These two “heroes” deserve each other.

Countdown to Batman v Superman: In Defense of Man of Steel

Countdown to Batman v Superman: In Defense of Man of Steel:

An old friend, Anghus Houvouras, defends Man of Steel… 

A good read and worthy of your time.

But the BATMAN VS SUPERMAN movie may NOT be worthy of your time..


A beautiful moon..

...and secrets the night air keeps... 

   

Perhaps the best description of BATMAN ever.. just BATMAN punching SUPERMAN in the face for three hours..



blameaspartame:



can’t wait




Perhaps the best description of BATMAN ever.. just BATMAN punching SUPERMAN in the face for three hours..

Ben Affleck said he would not take his son to see the movie – perhaps we all need to take the advice.

I have not liked the idea of this movie from the beginning.. as we get closer to the release, it seems more and more likely that I will not be viewing the film.. 

My apologies to those who do.

Maybe instead I’ll read FRANK MILLER’s version in comics.. My leather bound book awaits ..


Soft target terror

The images from Belgium are harrowing.. The nation feared terror for since and especially since Paris.. The arrest of the Paris attack mastermind didn't help alleviate anything. And now today's 8am morning rush hour double bombings of a subway system and airport in Brussels is being viewed by some as a response to the Friday arrest.. 
Clear at this point: Belgium and other European cities and nations are on lockdown.. People are being warned to avoid public gatherings.. The train connecting nation shut down..

The story and situation is developing.. With every passing moment more complications on the geo political sphere and in the world of open borders..

Mystery of Pulsing Pink Beam in Pedricktown, NJ. Linda...





Mystery of Pulsing Pink Beam in Pedricktown, NJ.

Linda Moulton Howe reporting on the EARTHFILES page about this:



A Pedricktown resident sent the following email with his image of a mysterious, pulsing pink beam that lasted for at least ten minutes before the strange beam kept contracting on itself half a dozen times getting smaller and smaller until it disappeared.


The light is bizarre to say the least.. in the description Linda received, the tipster wrote,

At 6:45 am, the beam disappeared. The way it disappeared was it contracted to about 2/3 of the size that was visible towards its center, disappeared,reappeared at its original size and repeated the contraction and disappearance-reappearance about five or six times.

This was not a spotlight, as the brightest spot was in the middle of the beam. Spotlights would be brighter at the power source. It wasn’t a laser pointer as known laser pointers are handheld and couldn’t produce a beam that strong.

There may be a very normal (?) explanation for this light.. but I certainly cannot think of something that would make it seem that way..

 While I have never been a fan of the show, this entire ordeal of the death of a character and the outrage of a fan base, particularly the LGBT community, may be a case in point on how not to use social media to prop up television programs.. All of the fans ordered to watch .. they did.. and then they abandoned the show in droves after a main character succumbed to a catastrophic ending.


SEPH LAWLESS showdown with DISNEY! PHOTOGRAPHER BANNED!

The famed photographer who captured moments in time--dilapidated malls and properties showcasing the death of the once great American infrastructure--has hit a nerve with Disney.


 

Last night Lawless posted this:
So Disney is upset at me, but why do they get so upset anytime someone gets too close to the abandoned Discovery Island..

What are you hiding Disney?

Stay tuned for the strange and bizarre oddities of the Disney Conspiracy...

https://www.instagram.com/sephlawless/

Today the message was amplified with this posted Facebook message:
Officially banned from Disney World for life, which is ironic because I already banned Disney from my life after they raised tickets prices...

I couldn't think of a better way to make a story go viral and bring attention to a growing public health catastrophe that killed an 11 year old child.

What are you really hiding Disney?

No corporation should be powerful enough to hide the truth and not clean up their mess.

Stay tuned for the strange and bizarre oddities of the Disney Conspiracy

The photos are showcased on Lawless’ many platforms online--and the UK DAILY MAIL .. The headline from the British paper:  The creepiest place on Earth? Inside the abandoned Disney World water park left to rot for 15 years after becoming one of only two that was ever shut down

Some photos:









Lawless wants to k now why Disney did not clean things up.

They responded by issuing a ban on the photographer from entering..

Chinese military space station in remote Argentina shrouded in mystery

Chinese military space station in remote Argentina shrouded in mystery:



Unlike the other space station in the South American country – an antenna in Argentina’s central-west Mendoza province built by the European Space Agency – the Chinese facility will be operated by the country’s military.


There is undoubtedly a secret space program .. nations around the world joining in.. shrouded in secrecy..

What secrets don’t we know?
What satellites circle?
What enormous hidden universal magic do the powers that be have and hold? 

From FOX: 

The intended use of the giant antennae at the station is supposed to monitor the moon – as China has ambitions of sending people to the earth’s only satellite – but some speculate that it could serve a dual purpose of watching celestial bodies and also intercepting signals from other nation’s satellites.

Despite the speculation,China has not given out much information to the public about the remote facility and its operations.


OLD MADGE EXPOSES UNDERAGE GIRL'S BREAST

Madonna exposes 17 YEAR OLD fan's breast onstage »


MORE..  Madonna invited a 17-year-old fan onstage during her concert Thursday night in Brisbane, Australia, and then pulled down the teen’s corset top to briefly reveal her left breast…

There is a silver lining: The 17 YEAR OLD underage girl called it the best moment of her life. ET ONLINE reports on the moment it occurred:
The Material Girl ended up in a bit of hot water when she – seemingly accidentally – exposed a 17-year-old fan’s breast during her Rebel Heart Tour in Brisbane, Australia on Thursday.

“She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap…on the a**. And pull–” Madge said as she yanked the teen’s corset down and flashed her boob. “Oh, sh*t! I’m sorry. Sexual harassment. You can do the same to me.”

I am hesitant linking to the video.. there are some YOUTUBE accounts permitting the underage nudity.. even some showing it in SLO MO.

The conventional wisdom: MADGE should cancel her tour immediately.. go back home.. eat some applesauce and ponder her life’s existence.. .
