30-Day Song Challenge: Never Tire!

Day 11 of this challenging Song Challenge, Dear Reader, and it’s probably worth having a brief recap. It all started with a tweet…

*We’ll be two thirds through by the time I’ve gotta go back to work, Clicky… /lights up…*

*Work’s not that bad… /drags… Is that Poppy Sweet Pea’s song for today? And what about Legs’ eleventh?*

*/plumes smoke… No shit?! ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ is gonna be my first song pick for today…*

…and now Cade fon Apollyon and I are a third of the way through already. Today we’ll be submitting songs that we never get tired of for your consideration…

*Clicky! Why in the sodding hell would you do that?*

paul smoked.gif

*I’m really glad you never get tired of it either… /flicks ash… But now I’ve gotta think of another one to start with. Cheers, Clicky…*

*You bastard…*

…So, pin back your lugholes, Dear Reader, and enjoy! ❤

Day 11: Song you never get tired of

Cade’s first song pick…

I’m guessing this needs to be a something I’ve listened to for a long time. Something with a long history of me listening to it. Something I can account for. Something with a track record. (pun intended) More than that, I guess this particular challenge is about “songs I’ve not yet tired of” more than “songs that I never get tired of”. Being human, and considering where we live, “change” is the norm and we’re subject to potentially tire of anything at any time for any reason(s). Maybe even no reason at all. Seeing as how my wizard cap and crystal ball are still on backorder, there’s no real way of knowing what songs I may think I’ll never tire of, but cause me to projectile-vomit at some point down the road. All that to say that I’m doing my best to think of songs that I’ve yet to tire of. Probably also should also be a something that I listen to a lot. Or have listened to a lot.

Just checked on YouTube, and there are 2,578 songs on the three “Bumpin Baby Thumpin” playlists that I’ve created over the past few years. There are an additional 1,660 songs on the various playlists I’ve created to reflect the music used in posts over at the Synchromysticism Forums (whatchacallit forums, as I liked to call them). That alone is 4,238 songs that I’ve found just over the past 7 or 8 years, and that’s not even all of it. I have many more playlists to choose from. Music that I like doesn’t tend to fall out of favor with me, so, what to do here?

^Entry Of The Gladiators – Julius Fucik^

Roob’s first song pick…

Cade, as he has a knack of doing, has hit upon a brilliant idea: I never get tired of listening to Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Thoughtful Man and I visited Salzburg for our first wedding anniversary and we paid a visit to his house. He wasn’t home, but I never held it against him 😉

^Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Eine kleine Nachtmusik^

Cade’s second song pick…

I got sick and fucking tired of this next one for a while, but only because of its association with television program “The Lone Ranger”. I used to watch that show when I was younger, and eventually, that audible alert of this tune playing indicating that the show was about to start? Yeah, we tire of alarms and warnings. Makes our heart race at first, but over time, those bells and klaxons sounding constantly make our hearts…sink. Dread. Turn the damn thing off.

Fortunately for me, later in life I got reacquainted with the tune. And boy, when you start to listen to it and pick it apart? What a fucking masterpiece. The way the pieces are assembled…the way they rise and fall…how every single little thing compliments everything else…how they all in unison compliment the entire piece. Putting all that together, and keeping it together? Astounding. It is truly a something to behold. Audibly, of course. So yeah technically I did tire of this at some point, but only because I didn’t know any better.

^ROSSINI: William Tell Overture (full version)^

Roob’s second song pick…

The fall masked man

*Oh, I love the story of the masked man in ‘The Fall’, Clicky… /puffs contentedly… The music is epic…*

*It was in ‘A Touch of Class’? …/blows smoke rings… Interesting…*

^Beethoven – Symphony No.7 in A major op.92-II, Allegretto^

Cade’s third song pick…

Wouldn’t be me if I didn’t give an honorable mention to an additional something or two that I have yet to tire of, but this last one could have easily gone on either the “sad” or “happy” post for me. A fave of mine ever since my parents brought home the soundtrack to the movie The Sting. Was shocking to hear that not everything “old” was so…polar. This tune didn’t seem to represent good nor evil. Just wanders right the fuck through all that bullshit and nonsense, and somehow manages to just kinda do its own thing.

^Scott Joplin – Solace (Mexican Serenade) HQ^

Roob’s third song pick…

Cade threw me for a loop with his first song pick today. The problem with classical music is that you really can’t get tired of it…

*I’ve spent all afternoon picking then changing my third song. It’s fuckin’ hopeless, there’s just so much good stuff… /stubs butt… I don’t know what to do. Help me please, Clicky…*

*Seriously?*

The final word to Roob Click…

^Extreme – More Than Words (Official Video)^

*******

Day 12 and 13’s challenges look interesting: ‘songs from our pre-teen years’ and ‘songs from the 70s’, respectively. As Cade and I were both born in 1967, it looks like the next two days could turn into a smorgasbord of platforms, flares and lava lamps…

*A bit random, Clicky, but okay…*

Until then, Dear Reader, have a Song…

Adventures in Remote Viewing: Politics and the Pitts

For this past week, Dear Reader, my good buddy, Cade, and I have indulged ourselves in a spot of remote viewing. Three Brad Pitt movies on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and a thoroughly entertaining dose of ‘Dredd’ on Thursday…

Dredd smoking.gif

*Don’t mind if I do, Clicky… /slides fag from pack… I was feeling dread right up to the Exit Poll, I can tell you… /flicks lighter…*

… There was also the General Election on Thursday, and we remote viewed the results, as they came in through the night, via Yoot Oob…

‘In last week’s Mail on Sunday, after a month and a half travelling from Bolsover to Canterbury, St Ives to Chingford, Wrexham to County Durham, I predicted that Labour’s vaunted Red Wall was on the brink of collapse. I was wrong.

‘It didn’t collapse. It was smashed into a billion pieces. Atomised by the arrogance, ideological blindness, self-righteousness and viciousness of Jeremy Corbyn and his cultish followers.

‘When first elected in 2015, they inherited a battered but proud and functioning party. By the time The Absolute Boy made his graceless resignation speech in the early hours of Friday morning, all that was left was the political equivalent of the Manson clan.’

*Did you know that Dan Hodges… /lights up… can only see out of one eye? …/drags… Son of a double Oscar winning star… /plumes smokes… Great flick, Click. Surprised the fuck out of me…*

*Ha! I loved the credits on that too… /smokes… There’s been no Red Apols! from Labour either, Clicky, for their wankish policies or spiteful attitude toward voters for rejecting them…*

*You’d think! Government needs a strong and credible opposition to keep them straight, Clicky… /flicks ash… A thorn in their side, but this rump Labour lot…*

*/shakes head… I’m not optimistic…*

On Monday evening, we remote viewed Brad Pitt in ‘Seven Years in Tibet’. It was much better than I thought it would be…

*You know what they say about people in glasshouses, Clicky? …/thinks… There was also a full moon on Thursday… /drags… An’ then there’s de bussy… /blows smoke rings…*

… And on Tuesday evening, we partook of Brad Pitt’s new space flick, ‘Ad Astra’. That was more of a curate’s egg of a movie…

Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 1Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 2Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 3Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 4Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 5Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 6Roob and Cade discuss Ad Astra 7

*/final drag… Corbyn’s willful blindness. Check… /cough… Dan Hodges is a one eyed son…*

*Yeah, there was a definite touché of class about the election result, Clicky… /stubs butt… *

…I can, however, highly recommend ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ to you, Dear Reader. Cade and I remote viewed that on Wednesday evening and it is possibly the most loving crafted ‘Fuck You!’ movie from Quentin Tarantino yet. Seriously good…

*Nice try, Clicky, but that wasn’t in the movie soundtrack. Go get one that is for us to end this shambles on… /pats snout… Off you pop…*

And that, Dear Reader, was the remote viewing week that was for Cade Fon Apollyon and myself. It was a lot of fun and the Labour party got an immense kick in the butt. Perfecto! 😀

Have a Song… ❤

 

Adventures in Remote Viewing: The Golden Hind-Sight

This weekend, Dear Reader, Cade Fon Apollyon, my Text US buddy and I have indulged in a double bout of remote viewing. It started on Friday evening, yet it was only at lunchtime today that I saw the glimmer of a sync vein running through the weekend’s viewing selection, but that had not been apparent to me at the time. And just like the start of our remote viewing binge of Friday, the sync realization and this post starts with Jeff Goldblum…

*Lights up, Clicky? …/lights up… Very droll…*

We started with Independence Day – my choice from 1996. It’s a feel good romp if ever there was one, as mankind thwarts the evil machinations of an invading alien species intent on stripping Earth of all her abundant resources, and exterminating the residents…

*No, Clicky we didn’t watch that until Saturday… /drags… We watched two more flicks before Skyfall…*

… The next movie to undergo our synchronised remote viewing was also my choice, but this time I hadn’t seen the flick before, although Cade had. In fact all I really knew about it was gleaned from its descriptive title, and that Daniel Craig was in it. I mean, who doesn’t like to see Daniel Craig striped to the waist?

*Yeah… /streams smoke… I just heard the skyfall reference in the trailer, too…*

To my surprise, the film sported a host of big name stars and many actors we’d remote viewed together before in Deadwood and Carnivale. Now, I know what you’re thinking, Dear Reader: she chose the movies knowing both contained aliens… Is Jeff Goldblum an alien?

*Oh shit! I forgot about that film… /flicks ash… Perhaps we can remote view that later…*

No, at least I don’t think so. In the case of Cowboys Vs Aliens, the invading Extra-Terrestrial marauders were intent on stealing one thing…

*Yep…*

…gold.

*Golden shot, golden liquid and golden haired hero and villain… /smokes… But you’re getting ahead of yourself again, Clicky. There was another movie before that…*

To round of the evening, we remote viewed a movie selected by Cade that neither of us had seen before – No Country For Old Men from 2007. Billed as a ‘neo-western’, it was bound to include cowboys and probably ‘aliens’. It was Cade that spotted the ‘gold’ in that particular selection, earlier today when I asked him if the movie had connected with the substance…

Roob and Cade discuss old gold veins

*Little golden man. It won four of ’em… /blows smoke rings… An’ at the start, the hunter was hunting pronghorns. They’re dear like… /shrugs…*

That thing you do anacronism gold record

*Hoof goof? Probably… /final drag… Clicky, That Thing You Do! came after Skyfall. Your timing’s all over the place today, buddy…*

Saturday lunchtime arrived and Cade and I decided to resume our remote viewing binge. Having watched aliens arrive from above, a rather sexy Daniel Craig and a monstrous Javier Bardem the night before, the choice was easy and it was mine to make. As far as I knew, Cade hadn’t seen Skyfall, but I had…

*Now that I think about it, James Bond is a spy touched by gold… /stubs butt… Golden gun and finger, Clicky. Golden Aiii…*

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to watch Cade’s next choice of movie, one that neither of us had seen before, due to severe lag…

orlando bloom potcv

*The appearance of Orlando Bloom was about as far as we got to before giving up, Clicky… /thinks… Orlando Bloom – Jeff Goldblum…*

… So we remote viewed That Thing You Do! instead, followed by Benchwarmers, a zany baseball comedy about ‘old men’ taking on young boys…

*Yeah! Gold dress, just like Cade said… /grins… Vikings and Danes…*

*And a little man in a goldenish shirt… /snorts laughter… Benchwarmers has also won golden awards…*

And that, Dear Reader, was a golden run through of Cade and mine’s marathon remote viewing sesh this we-kenned…

*Oh yeah…*

Cade and Roob discuss gold

*Now that you mention it, we did watch the gold doc that had been sitting in Cade’s YT ‘Recommendeds’ all week… /lights up… Seriously, when was the gold business ever ‘clean’? And the ‘Artisan’ mining it pushed at the end? … /smokes… Sounds like regular gold mining to me…*

May your week be fruitful and fun, Dear Reader. Have a Song ❤

Holy Daze Shambles

LAST TIME AT THE LOL

*Cade and me finished remote viewing Jordan Peterson’s psychoanalysis of the book of Genesis at 5 o’clock this morning Clicky… /lights up… What a blast…*

*/drags… Not quite Beatlemania, Clicky, but he’s had a phenomenal impact… /streams smoke… And he’s certainly engenders screaming…*

Well, hello there, Dear Reader 😀 It’s the first day of my holiday and I celebrated release from work by staying up all night…

… But I admit, I’m feeling somewhat dozy today…

*Wait. What? …/squints…*

*Ah… /smokes… There’s a Stapleton in ‘You’ve Got Mail’, Clicky…*

River Rocks Friday

up there

*Hey! Don’t dust dump dose dere, Kicky… /sigh… Nevermind…*

Yesterday, Dear Reader, full of snotty summer cold and limply languishing on my Library sofa, I decided to invest my sick-note time in listening to the above lecture by Dr Jordan Peterson. It was based around the animated classic ‘Pinocchio’. And it was all Cade’s fault…

*/coughs… True, Kicky… /clears throat… Der Doc referenced Pinocchio in der stuff we lissend to earlier in da week. Snot all Cade’s fault, granted, but ‘e did start it yesderday with dose overnight DMs ‘e sent me…*

Cade DMs Roob Corsair Crisis Overnight

*/sniffs… Give a little whistle, yeah… /blows dose…*

*/thinks… Dat was one of der uvver little talk we lissend to, Kicky… /rolls eyes… Syncs…*

… Well, nearly all Cade’s fault, Dear Reader. MEROVEE Frank in the Red universe contributed as well…

Merovee Frank Shes Gone Nora and Natalie

*/sips cherry-Coke… Child lost in the Jung… /cough… jungal, and the body of a missing asdrofidisis found on a Greek Island, which was named for a famous fool… /gnaws lips…*

Roob asks Merovee Frank Cades Question

After replying to Frank, I decided to search for anything else the good Doctor might have said about the story of ‘Pinocchio’…

Mitchell Motherlode

… And he has…

7 hours later

*Ah… ah… ah…*

Monstro Sneeze

*Gesundheit! Yeah, a bid of a monster, Kicky…*

So, Dear Reader, if you fancy listening to the breakdown of a Gnostic story, with a Christianity overlay, and you have seven hours to spare, then I highly recommend you partake in the stack of videos that appear at the top of this post. Have a Song…

 

Missive From ‘Merica: Bundle!

*/lights up… Let’s keep the top and tail short and sweet, Clicky… /drags… I have a remote viewing date tonight… /plumes smoke…*

Cade and I have been remote viewing the Stranger Things series this week, Dear Reader. I want to finish season 3 before I write anything about it, but rest assured, a shamble is formulating in this noggin of mine…

*Dagnammit, Clicky! I said short and sweet… /flicks ash… Dear Reader ain’t gonna spend ten minutes listening to that. Not when there’s a fantastic missive to devour…*

… Luckily Cade touches on the series in his missive below. So enjoy! ❤

*******

I’d like to tell you a story…

about a man named Jed…

a poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed.

I’d like to tell you that story…

but I’m not going to.

Happy Friday Shit4Brainz
^Skrillex – First Of The Year (Equinox) [Official Music Video]^

Welp, this is one way to get someone to “take you to their leader”…

Intentionally giving lawmakers and weapons designers/manufacturers reason(s) to use those laws and weapons…

great idea!

Thanks for justifying their reason(s) for existing. I’m sure the fines will be a welcome windfall, as the prison time is likely to choke the living shit out of the legal system for centuries to come, and create the need for more and bigger Gitmo and Joe Arpaio types of “correctional facilities”.

But lets think practically

The automobile has made us somewhat stupid as to the logistical nightmare that this A51 invasion would be. Last night I was watching a documentary that was talking about the Second Fitna (Second Islamic Civil War) and they were talking about how long it took for the Umayyad to pull their troops out of Mecca and return to Damascus because the king had died, and someone killed his heir not long after. The documentary I was watching is actually trying to make the argument that “Ancient Mecca” is actually Petra, and not the modern day Mecca…

but that's not really what was on my mind

What was on my mind was how in the hell you pull an army out of an area that you just got to, irrespective of the distance(s) you have to cover. Supposedly, the Umayyad had only gotten to Mecca 40 days before, and now it had to disengage, pull out completely, and does so in about that same amount of time…40 days. Ironically, there’s a more modern logistical nightmare like that if the thought of thousands of people in the desert doesn’t tickle your fancy.

Retreat From Gettysburg

I watched something on that recently too…and…holy shit…what a fucking nightmare. But I know that warfare prolly isn’t your cup of herbal tea, so lets keep it more realerist of all…

Burning Man

I guess they are up to around 70,000 attendees for this thing, it is quite the feat to support that amount of people in the desert for a week, and this ‘Area 51 Get Stun Gunned Fun Run’ is going to host 300,000 people…over 4x more. Even if only half showed up, you’re still talking over 2x Burning Man. So lets think about what is going to get you to Rachel Nevada…assuming you idiots are planning on hitting the base from the North. You are going to drink every gas station dry. ‘Cept for you dolts driving a Smart Car or Prius or a Tesla.

Who...in the FUCK...would take an electric car to the desert?* 

Of course, the government is going to have to respond to your onslaught, so its possible they are going to commandeer or restrict every gas station within 200 miles of the base. You may have enough gas to get in, but you won’t have enough to get out. You’re going to fuck over a lot of the locals in the process, so it is unlikely that visitors of any kind will be welcome in the future.

(pun intended) 

Better bring plenty of tents since accommodations will be few and far between, and bring enough water to drink at least 8 litres per day. I know I’m rambling, and this Facebook thing is stupid, but my mind is awash with how in the hell you’d ever get even 1/10th of that many people remotely close to there. “Strength in numbers” is not always a true statement.

Woodstock

That’s a social bum rush that turned out well. They didn’t think their shit through either.

*I’m not talking about engineers testing electric cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

^Tenacious D – Storm The Gate!^

My suggestion is to show up early, get arrested/detained immediately. At least you’ll have a place to stay, you’ll be out of the heat, food and water will be available, and you’ll have a nice clean place to shit and paper to wipe your ass with until the shitstorm you created, itself, passes. You get you social badge of honor of “being there” to wear around your social media sites, you’re safe and snug thanks to the gubment… and the best part? You still paid for the accommodations via your tax dollars. Its win/win.

Being…there

^F’ing Rant | Rory McIlroy’s rigged Canadian Open win, June 9, 2019 & Kyle Lowry jersey tribute^

What are you gonna do with these alien remains? Shove them in your mom’s refrigerator like the idiots did with the Demidog in season 2 of Stranger Things? I bet mom’s fridge is a long ways away, you’re in the middle of the desert, so how long you figure before that fucker thaws out and begins to rot. Or worse, wakes up in a bad mood, tries to eat your brain, discovers you have no brains, gets even more pissed off, calls in the mothership for a rescue, and vanishes from this planet forever.

Seriously, have you given thought to what kind of social damage an alien showing up once, leaving, and never returning would do? You’ve got your proof, but only for you. Everyone who follows is going to think you and everyone around you were morons, hallucinators, uninformed bullshitters, story tellers and/or liars…prolly all on drugs too.

 Sound familiar? 

It should. Just about every culture that came before us can be accused of the same, and the theme is the same all over the world. The Long Gone Gods. Gods and monsters. Mystics and Titans of all kinds. Gone forever. Never to return. Prolly never existed in the first place. Buncha uneducated idiots telling tales after school/making shit up because they weren’t smart like us. They didn’t have…SCIENCE!

Our new god(s)
^Iron Maiden – Flight Of Icarus (Official Video)^

Speaking of flights of fancy, we sure are flying close to the sun/Sol these days. I wonder if that’s a good idea. Not saying we shouldn’t do it, but this new religion of Science requires/demands the unquestioning belief of the followers in much the same way more traditional religions do. But Science still omits a shitload of us, all in favor of the clergy themselves.

Sound familiar? 

It should. But, that’s why I write in the first place. I’m not gonna win any awards or make any cash, but I will hopefully leave something behind for my children. Fill in some gaps, pass along some ways of looking at things that are neither faithful nor rebellious. Hopefully allow them a bit of guidance + the freedom to do what they need to do in their own time(s) and in their own moment(s). I’ve learned that there are times when the best thing to do, is throw the rule book(s) out the window.

Improvise

There are other times when you should follow the rule book(s) step by step, and without fail. You can’t remember everything. That’s why there are rule books and manuals in the first place. Or so an aircraft mechanic told me once.

Makes sense
^Why the Parker Solar Probe is NASA’s most exciting mission | Michelle Thaller^

An interesting vid, but the analogy she gives regarding a camp fire getting hotter the further away you move? That’s…not really accurate. Heat here in our context…rises. Convective activity. Not to mention that during the Tudor period, they found out real quick that it gets a helluva lot hotter above the fire/in the chimney than it does in front of the fire. Not to mention that they found out that the gases themselves and the soot/unburned stuff is pretty goddamn flammable.

Think about it like this…heat, really doesn’t go “up”…it goes out. Actually, it goes up and out at the same time. But if you see a chimney burning from space, the smoke is going to be going out, not up. A “spew” rather than a “rise”. But yeah, it does both at the same time, depending on your orientation/location. So what she is talking about regarding heat traveling laterally…is not…really…accurate.

I would imagine that much of our Sun’s matter/mass at and around the surface actually acts as to keep the temperatures more constant/consistent. Much like room temperature water or molten metal or even salt in a sodium reactor. However, in the case of molten metal or a sodium reactor, everything in the immediate area is gonna be hotter than hell because of the change in the medium for conducting heat.

Wait...did I just state the obvious? 

I guess I’m wondering why science/scientists are wondering why the corona is “hotter than the sun itself”.

^KISS – Hotter Than Hell (Live at Winterland ’75)^

I wonder sometimes if matter/energy can begin moving so fast, that it becomes immeasurably cold. Maybe even that the surrounding environment becomes ridiculously hot. Like say…

lightning

Prolly unrelated, but there’s gotta be something going on that prevents the flow of electrons from becoming constant in certain environments. I know that prolly doesn’t make much sense considering the nature of materials science – I’m actually thinking about static electricity and aircraft more than I am thinking about naturally occurring lightning – but there’s got to be something that sustains cold other than just/only the absence of heat.

Blah

Um…

Q: What do you want from these aliens?

A: ???

Seriously, what can they possibly provide for you? Is that all they can do? Provide things…for you? This seems more like government angst than it seems like some natural interest/curiosity, but that’s prolly because I’m still steaming over season 1 of Stranger Things. Yeah, I watched it last weekend, have written a bit about it, but you’ve basically got different groups of assholes fighting over…

Eleven

Doesn’t matter whether it’s that pack of creepy assholes in their government hideout, or that creepy pack of nerds playing Dungeons and Dragons in their basement…they’re basically the same people at different times. The kids start talking about Eleven as if she’s a weapon…a tool for them to use. Before long, everyone is doing the same shit. She’s something to be feared, and everyone wants to get their claws in her for various reasons. So again, I gotta ask…

Q: What do you want from these aliens?

A: ???

You want disclosure? You want proof? Or is access what you are really wanting? Can’t say I blame you really. There’s plenty of places that I’d like to visit and poke around. My itinerary and reasons for visiting these places might differ slightly from yours. Some might be similar tho.

^Trentemøller: Moan^

Most people don’t give a fuck about the water itself, they want control of the tap. Others want to control the pipelines.

Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Was watching a doc yesterday on Antarctica, and the mission itself was more of a fisheries expedition than it was a research mission. Not to mention that the musical score, the editing and the narration made the whole thing seem like a commercial. But it seems to me that “business” is only willing to fund science if there is a return. And business is going to have to be in cahoots with government in order to finance the mission in the first place, so yeah…

a triad between science, business and government

That said, if you want control of the infrastructure that provides information, build your own. Hell, I thought that was the purpose of Social Media in the first place…give you a voice. So…what have you done with it, this voice you now have. Have you been honest? Have you been forthcoming? Do you actually tell the truth, or do you simply espouse to the fact that you are telling the truth, and you are you spewing whatever will get you the most votes on election day? Wait…what’s that? You never thought of likes and shares and followers as being the same as votes?

Weird 

I’d imagine a smart fucker like you woulda been all over that.

^Alice^

Oh, and here’s that documentary on the Antarctica exploitation, if you wanna watch it. The documentary was posted on YT on July 9 of 2019, but the documentary itself is a National Geographic documentary from 2008 called Expedition Antarctica.

Expedition Antarctica

So yeah, an 11 year old documentary repackaged as something new in the now. If you’re wanting to be timely, current, and on the cutting edge of discovery, this show may not be for you.

^The Secrets of Antarctica | Full Documentary | TRACKS^

Would be nice to find a copy of that Paul Watson movie/doc At the Edge of the World. I bet Roob would enjoy that. Yeah, Watson is accused of being a bit sketchy, but EVERYTHING is sketchy, so not sure what the problem is with sketchy things. In fact, if it wasn’t for sketchy shit, the Internet prolly woulda died long ago. TV too. And radio. And film. And photography. And print. Hell, is media the only thing keeping us alive? Well, maybe that and oral tradition.

The Aroostook Triangle

That appeared on my radar yesterday, and I’ve been contemplating to concepts of gossip and rumor a lot lately. Hell, most of this post is about rumor and gossip, it’s just that a lot of it gets packaged as some kind of official and/or authentic something that is reliable because of a mark or seal or something. Which, did you know that Twitter has “authenticated” accounts?

About verified accounts

Excuse me…”verified”, not authenticated. So yeah, the tap itself has a placard saying that everything is A-OK. That’s no guarantee as to what is in the pipeline tho, nor its source(s). Most information is aggregate anyway. Not clean and pure like single-malt Scotch whiskey.

😉

^CHVRCHES – Lies^

I guess that “single-malt” refers to batches of a particular production run that have not been mixed with leftovers from previous runs? I have no idea, and pretty sure I’ve never drunk a single-malt Scotch. Too fucking expensive. I ain’t spending $150 on a bottle of Scotch. I can buy several fifths of Dewar’s for that, or maybe a keg of beer. Not that I have a place to keep a keg nor a means of keeping it cold. Maybe someday I can afford both a kegerator and a bottle of single-malt.

^Fever Ray ‘When I Grow Up’^

Anyway…it’s 10:24 on Friday morning, been at this for a while, my butt is frozen to the side of the bed from sitting here writing all that bullshit above, and I guess I better get prepared to watch the rest of season 3 of Stranger Things. I don’t like much of anything of what I’ve seen thusfar. A bunch of angsty yelling and everyone trying to tell everyone else what to do/not do. The Snow Ball was kinda funny. I couldn’t decide if it was more Napoleon Dynamite or Fish Under The Sea Dance. Or Carrie. Or Footloose. It did have a Napoleon Dynamite song in it, but maybe the Snow Ball was actually not trying to be any of those previously mentioned things. I mean, it’s a dance and school dances, unlike alien landings or paranormal shitstorms, are quite a common occurrence here in the US of A.

Are school dances portrayed onscreen taboo unless approved by the Bomont, Utah Community Standards and Morality Council?* Or is this where union groups and guilds come into play. I had no idea that the entertainment industry was so inundated with guilds and unions, but it is.

*this is a nod to the movie Footloose (fyi)

You want to know things. Me too. I guess the question is…

Q: How do you want to know it?

A: ?? ¿

You can kill two birds with one stone that way. “They” are gonna be equally interested in how you know what you know, as well as what you know. And knowing is half the battle. No wait, surprise is half the battle. Anyway, yeah, both halves of the battle are important, and how you know what you know is equally as important as what you know. Some considerations to sequencing might not go amiss either. Chronological, topical, contextual, alphabetical…things like that.

Reference

Some reference points get a little…loopy. Especially when someone is pulling your fingernails out with a pair of pliers. You’ve only got so many fingernails, and getting them yanked out makes concentration a bit difficult.

I do wonder what you think you’re gonna find on the other side of that fence other than miles of desert, a shitload of snakes and scorpions, dehydration, sunburn, some giant runways, secret aircraft programs, a shitload of toxic waste(s), and a bunch of gung-ho types with automatic weapons who are more than willing to deal you out some government issued bullet wounds. Even if you find what you are looking for, then what? Haven’t you seen Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade?

Adventures in Remote Viewing: Syncing Beasts

LAST TIME*No comments made yet on Cade’s missive, Clicky? …/flicks lighter…*

*Oh well… /lights up… we’d better get on with this shambles then… /drags…*

*/streams smoke… Leg-ion is a bit of a train a-fiction-ado, Clicky… /smirks…*

This week, Dear Reader, Cade and I remote viewed M. Night Shyamalan’s trilogy of movies, ‘Unbreakable’ from 2000, ‘Split’ from 2017 and ‘Glass’ which was released earlier this year…

I’d seen ‘Unbreakable’ back in the early Naughties on DVD. I thought it an entertaining enough flick, but nothing more. I admit I rolled my eyes back in January when I heard that a sequel was to be released, called ‘Glass’…

*Yeah, unbreakable glass, Clicky… /smokes…*

… But my ears pricked up earlier this week when I heard work colleagues discussing the performance of James McAvoy in a movie called ‘Split’…

… And I learned that not only is it set between ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Glass’, but that it also succeeded as a “stand-alone movie”. That reminded me of a favourite book…

*No fucking way! …/flicks ash… That’s like a sync on steroids, Clicky…*

… Not the story told in the film itself, so much as the movie’s format and placement within the trilogy. Now, Dear Reader, I don’t know M. Night Shyamalan, but I do know the author H.K. Hillman…

… His first book, ‘Jessica’s Trap’, is about the construction of something unbreakable, and works as a complete, stand-alone story…

… Whereas his third book, ‘Norman’s House’, set 372 years later,  satisfyingly completes the tale. Glass is integral to it…

*/deep drag… Better get a Song ready to end on, Clicky… /stubs butt…*

… So, all in all, Dear Reader, I can thoroughly recommend the trilogies from M. Night Shyamalan and H.K. Hillman…

*Huh? …/scratches head… The Scottish play, Clicky? I suppose. James McAvoy comes from Scotland and Leggy lives there…*

… Have a Song…

*Ah, gotcha…*
