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

4058 THEATERS STRONG FOR 'JUSTICE LEAGUE' OPENING

Wading into the night without Heather

Confusion and consternation abounds after last night's MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT was a rerun.. No previews from Art Bell on his Facebook page like he's been doing for days. Nothing from Heather Wade.. just the sounds of a repeat.

The crowd at Bellgab is polarized as usual ... some say Wade could not compete with George Noory interviewing Dan Rather on Coast to Coast Am. How exactly did Nores get Rather? It's a schtrange world indeed..

http://artbell.com/ is absent information about what may have occurred with Heather Wade. No mention of ANY show Friday night, rerun or night.

A few MIDNIGHT fan pages on Facebook are all a flutter with hypertension over what may be occurring behind the scenes.

We reached out to Heather Wade to get a comment. Nothing yet. But if one comes we will share.

 

VIRAL GONE RIGHT!

WHEN VIRAL GOES GOOD!!


IF you didn’t see  Candace Payne, a Dallas mother of two, laugh hysterically while wearing a Chewbacca mask, you should. It should almost be mandatory on a gloomy day.

She wasn’t anyone famous.. but literally minutes after posting herself in a car wearing a brand new Chewy mask, her Facebook exploded. It completely shattered the Facebook live video stats.

The views were in the millions.. Even KOHL’s send toys for the entire family (Good marketing Kohls) ..

She captioned the video ‘the simple joys.’  And her video makes you just…happy!

The comments I have seen on the videos have been kind and fun. No one degenerating it into some needless debate. Nothing talking politics.. no one laughing or bullying her..

No, instead, it would seem that her Chewbacca mask is exactly what America needs right now. Something to bridge the numerous gaps that divide us on so many levels.

Just a happy woman in her car, sneaking a video of her in Chewy attire.
Completely innocent and completely beautiful as she laughs. And her laugh is actually quite contagious.

Enjoy if you haven’t already:

Egypt air flight 804 vanishes from radar

This is a hard developing story.. 

Known so far: 

The flight left Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport at 11:09 p.m. local time and was supposed to land in Cairo at 3.15 a.m. Thursday. Both the departure and arrival cities are in the same time zone.

-- It vanished 10 miles into Egyptian airspace, the airline said.

--The plane's captain had 6,000 flying hours while the first officer had 4,000, Adel said.

--The Egyptian navy is conducting search and rescue operations in the area it vanished, CNN's Ian Lee said from Cairo. Armed forces are searching the area 40 miles north of Egyptian coastline.

-- There was no special cargo on the flight and no notification of any dangerous goods aboard, Adel said.

-- The plane entered EgyptAir's service on November 3, 2003, he added.

Developing..

If a tree sleeps in the forest does anyone wake it?

This is an amazing study.. Trees were studied in two nations for a first of its kind analysis.. Proving, perhaps, that trees do sleep?
 
 The full story is here..
 
 Read it. It's truly amazing to consider that trees actually become at rest during the darkness of night.. Sleeping Giants in the woods around us.
 
 When I was younger, my father used to tell me that trees could hear and see.. That trees could listen and understand. And that they were smart...
 These days with CIA spying it's more likely that trees literally watch you.
 
 But while I laughed when I was younger at my dad's tall tales, I realized he wasn't kidding in what he said and quite possibly was correct in some creepy and deeply paranormal way..
 
 Have you ever been in the woods, alone, but felt like every tree was either greeting you with open branches or dismissing you with fluttering leaves? Have you even felt like a tree, in all its might, may just be able to see and discern your intentions?
 And maybe trees have to sleep too..
 
 It's not easy standing that tall for hundreds of years. Even trees have to take a break sometime.

The 'demonic threat' to America?

It's official.. America is facing a demonic threat..
 Or so says a Cardinal commenting about what he portrayed as a dismissal of God by America and an impending demonic doom..
 
 
 Robert Sarah is his name...
 Praying the game.
 
 From US NEWS:
 
In a keynote address at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, Cardinal Sarah said that in the United States, "God is being eroded, eclipsed, liquidated," Catholic News Agency reports.
 
 Cardinal Sarah pointed out specific events "in the name of 'tolerance'" that have contributed to this erosion, including "the legalization of same sex marriage, the obligation to accept contraception within health care programs, and even 'bathroom bills' that allow men to use the women’s restrooms and locker rooms."

 
 Lots of news of demonic possession lately.. Stories of entire nations being exorcised.. And. Now. The cardinal. Worried about demons swarming in..
 
 
 A threat so serious that even Trump can't save us?

 There is “LIFE AFTER DEATH” according to a study..


That’s an actual headline from the UK EXPRESS.. and while it seems hopeful and amazing, the information was certainly not conclusive. There is a certain chance that we can live up to three minutes after the heart stops.. there is also the chance that many people have experienced ‘life after death’ type out of body experiences.. or as the UK EXPRESS titled them, ‘outer body.’ There is also a chance that Raymond Moody had it best–and first–with his life after life scenarios and circumstances.

What we know is that we still don’t know..
One of the biggest focuses of this website–and me personally–is to get to the bottom of this question. It may be the most important question we ever ask on this planet.  And if we would so happen to find an answer.. my God, imagine how amazing that could really, really be?

I get a sense we will not find that conclusion we are looking for, however.. instead just strange stories, hints, and allegations from the world at large.

We will get the conclusive answer when we meet our fate.
And we hope and strive for a long and healthy question session before we finally get the final answer..

But I am always reminded when I talk about this subject of a comment from John Leer on Art Bell so many years ago: Do NOT go into the light. It's a trap.

Two years ago after a health scare, radio host Clyde Lewis added to the 'no light' statement with a joke that he pictures a hillbilly with a bugzapper as each person enters the tunnel ...

Avoid the light?
Is there a light?
One thing that sticks with me from the UK EXPRESS article describing the emotion people had, mostly, during the NDEs: FEAR.

 

Rainbow over nostalgia street

Yesterday, May 15 2016, was a peculiar day of weather in Northeastern Pennsylvania.Cold, rain.. heavy rain.. sun.. SLEET, SNOW! And hail. All of that in the span of about 12 hours.




I said snow. Strange for May. Of course in the 1800s we had a season with no summer, hope that won’t happen in ’16 but it sure felt it yesterday.

But one image I wanted to share. In the aftermath of the rain and snow and storm clouds, rainbows were popping up everywhere. Some dramatic photos showed up on my news feed on Facebook and Instagram. I stole one photo from my sister in law that shows a beautiful rainbow. The picture is unfiltered, nothing added … and the rainbow appears to be directly where St. Mauritius Church stood until only a few months back.


You may recall that I wrote about the structure as it was being torn down last year.. 

And now, a reminder of a building that was once there on a cold day in May.

Retail hell and the murder of malls

So often, it seems that I am posting “end times” stories on this website. End times for schools in my area.. for churches.. for stores.. End times for the fabric of the once strong and proud coal region of Pennsylvania.. End times for so many things.




Believe it or not, I am mostly a positive person with some negative traits. While admiring those who can see the glass half full all of the time, I strive for that. But lately, things in this area could not be more depressed..

This past weekend, after 20 years of existence, another store in my local mall shuddered and fell by the wayside. Black Diamond antiques in the Schuylkill Mall, Frackville PA.. it was a strange little place, filled with coveted items of yesterday, trinkets that had no specific meaning but most likely meant a lot to someone who passed away within the last 100 years, and old relics like typewriters, newspapers, and He-Man toys. As a matter of fact, I was able to mostly recreate my entire stock of He-Man toys that were tossed into the garbage late 20th century. My son Ayden gets the collection now. He was upset this weekend to learn that Black Diamond’s He-Man selection will vanish.

The problem with malls is that it is not 1989 anymore. Music stores? No need.. fast food? Less interest.. Specialty shops? Amazon!

Just as malls killed main street, Walmart killed malls. Walmart is being slowly impaled on the information superhighway, along with the remaining malls that still survive to today. People have no need for brick and mortar when they can click and order. It’s just the way of the world..

Will these same Amazon shoppers miss malls? Maybe not. A friend of mine complicit in the death of retail shopping holds no guilt. He is fine with the choices he made, completely lavishes in the speed of his goods being shipped and can’t wait for the day when drones can do it.

But those jobs!? (minimum wage, of course.. but summer employment for students and year round employment for seniors… all gone.)

 

I have been long enamored with the fate of malls. I always sensed it would happen. I am sure you did, too. Nothing after all lasts forever.

I have fond memories of teenage years, scavenging the mall for things to do but finding little. These days, teenagers in the mall would actually be a welcome site—back in the 90s they were always kicked out. Now they doors would be left wide open for ANYONE to come in.

I don’t give my own local mall too much longer.


The Schuylkill Mall even ended up on Deadmalls.com in 2006. No updates since that …

About a year and a half ago, I decided to call the mall management and give them some ideas. I actually penned them and typed them up, making a concise list of practical things I think they could do to replenish shoppers or even have new ideas that don’t involve shopping. One idea was to quit playing 80s music—that generation is gone and there’s no getting it back. Other ideas was an commerce center, indoor farm and market, and lots of free rent for a few months to spawn independent restaurants.

However this was before I completely read the graffiti on the bathroom stall like the holy scripture of the shopping mall: things aren’t coming back. Maybe there will be a few places.. but not many. Malls are gone. Main street USA is boarded up and not reopening. Jobs are vanquished. Drugs dominate. Towns that once celebrated sundown now fear it. The dead eyes of night stare at empty store fronts and peer into windows of dilapidated structures.

With all that said, I am positive for the future. Somehow.

But things indeed are changing.

The future will be drone delivered.

Perhaps what I will miss most? The photos of people trampling each other on Black Friday.

IDAHO HELL? EXORCISM SURGE?

IDAHO: NEW CONSTRUCTION. NEW JOBS. RENEWED CALLS FOR EXORCISM


There is a boom in calls for exorcisms in Idaho, apparently..
This report from KIVI-TV reporter Roland Beres, an ABC affiliate in the state:
BOISE, Idaho - As Idaho’s population grows, there has been an influx of new construction, new restaurants, and oddly enough, and increased amount calls for exorcisms.

“Many times we get calls because people are having activity in their homes or businesses,“ exorcism expert and founder of Apparitions Paranormal Investigations Jeff Mason explained. "We actually had the entity identify itself as a demon attached to a resident of one exorcism.”

Despite the doubt and sometimes laughable portrayals of exorcisms in Hollywood movies, Pastor Mike Freeman said that the issue is a reality for some people – especially those living in Third World countries.

“You step into the Third World and it’s definitely a ‘We’re not in Kansas’ anymore moment,” Freeman explained.

“To assume our way of viewing reality as the only way is to limit ourselves.“

There is an inundation of talk about exorcisms as of late throughout the world. Creepy stories of demon possession, house possession, and Pope Francis calling on more priests to battle evil.

And now it has moved to Idaho…
