Don’t hear this one too often.
There’s like a minute of blank at the end for some reason but great audio and a great picture.

Well, it simply must be “done,” right?
This image appeared on my tumblr dashboard courtesy of a poster of interest called the weird wide web.
Naturally I would like it to be so, but it is just here cuz I like the picture!
I do seem to have a soft spot for unicorns, I will say that. I remember some teaser utoobian clip from Yurrop somewhere (Germany?) a few years ago that was also nicely done.
Such a lovely lad, he was… such warm feelings twixt ‘im and Eva.
It must have been so lonely for her to be sitting alone shut away all those years after he died. Poor little thing.
I -had- to post this… it is just so delicious and hey, man, even Greg Bishop liked it!
This is actually true, according to my limited knowledge of the official story.
And assuming for a moment that the story is true … that the dude did this, well, all I can say to that is that there exists a crying need for this activity to happen again.
And as soon as possible, too.
It has been said for years that money is the problem.
Even the very concept of it, as far as I’m concerned.
So anyway this image appeared on my facebook newsfeed today and I thought you might like it.

I often contemplate the nature of living things in their powerful desire to keep living at all costs insofar as that is the way it should be, as it were.
I think about it because a lot of the time I do not feel that feeling or force or whatever it is. It is troubling. And frequent.
I wish I could talk to this guy.
I no longer think my mind can be sorted, though. Like my eyes, it is far too late.
I may add more to this, we’ll see.
As you can see, America is missing a few years, nevertheless, we have come pretty close to making the effort to be at war with someone perpetual. The authorities are working to make sure that there are no gaps in future.

Fantasmas en el Edén Hotel de La Falda www.prensadelcentro.com.ar
Wow, now this is cool… and unexpected, really…
This place has a fascinating history, even without any mention of ghosts. Built by Germans long before the war, it was as extremely advanced in it’s facilities and amenities as it was extreme in it’s remoteness. It had a fleet of Fords for the guests to use. It had an elevator. And it had a plastic surgery suite.
Yes, that’s right. A plastic surgery suite. In the middle of nowhere. La Palma in Cordoba is hundreds and hundreds of miles away from anything and everything. Takes a while to get there even today.
You see, this was a place primarily designed to assist the escaping high end Nazis of the future in their zest for reintegration into society, aided by a permanent disguise, as it were. The hotel has a watchtower. A very tall one. Yes. Doesn’t your hotel?
I had been aware that Einstein had stayed there along with many famous people. I was not aware of ghosts, though!
I had been getting into it because I have been looking pretty deeply into the Nazis being down there and this place was key… in fact the most notorious guests, of the Annex, a large, luxurious building located on the hotel campus, were none other than Mr. and Mrs. Adolf Hitler—from 1955 until his death in the mid 60s or 70s. They’d made a few visits previously to hang out with his good friends, the Eichorns who owned the place.
More about them later, hopefully, if I can budget time properly.
So, for now, let’s enjoy some ghosts!
Whoa! This seems legit.

Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWznA3… to see a better lit view of the room.
This is a video of me as a little kid (3 years old), on my rocking horse. My dad left a camera on to catch who ever or whatever was playing with the rocking horse after many times of trying and finding nothing. Its a really old video we just recently got it converted to dvd so sorry for the horrible quality.
I found this today in a thread on ATS from 2009, someone had replied to it and I am glad they did!
Here is the original post:
Finally, I can share this video with everyone. It dates back to 1992 but just became digital as far as I know. For years, this recording of an apparent ghost riding my nephew’s rocking horse was misplaced and in a not so digital format.
When my nephew was young, his grandmother found an old rocking horse at a garage sale in Colorado and sent it to him. Late at night, his mother and father would hear the rocking horse squeaking. In an attempt to “catch” their young son sneaking into the room and riding his rocking horse they set up a video camera. The camera captured something else at play as you will see.
I also find it interesting that my nephew asks his father, “Who’s that” when he is riding the horse before leaving the room. The “other” rocking horse rider begins about 2:14 into the video or so. This video has long been a topic of conversation around campfires when the ghost stories come out. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. I think it’s amazing…..
I am leaning toward this being real. I’ve been bitten before by this sort of video but I am going to risk it again with this one.
There are a lot of replies pushing the string/fishing line theory, but I have to go with the impression that strings attached and then pulled wouldn’t work as shown. I could be wrong, surely, but… it looks real. I also do not think that either poster would fake it although admittedly that is an emotional reaction.
3 Missing 411 interviews in one, David Paulides at his best!
Hopefully this will work. Video-wise I mean. That URL tho.
Didn’t! – fixed it. Silly app.
Mr Paulides is currently one of my favorite Forteans since he does not mix any woo into the story, which, really, is the way it should be.
Something profoundly strange is happening and it is proving to be frightening on many levels.
Enjoy and Peace.
You might know of this—I think I’d read the headline and noted it but those neurons were inactive since so it was akin to forgetting.
And it’s true, Just visit the site of the Vatican Apostolic Library and you will be able to browse the over 4,400 ancient texts and manuscripts. The library claims to hold 82,000 documents and it is a real pleasure knowing that they intend to do them all!
The library had its Grand Opening in 1451AD, so it is posited that they are not lacking in experience.
From an article by Michael Kozlowski, we read:
The Vatican Apostolic Library is now digitizing its valuable ancient religious manuscripts and putting them online via its website. All of the content is available for free.
The Library was originally founded in 1451 AD and holds over 80,000 manuscripts, prints, drawings, plates and books printed prior to 1500 AD. The titles are all written throughout history by people who had different faiths or religions, from all over the world.
Not only are paintings, religious iconography and books being published online, but also letters by from important historical figures, drawings and notes by artists and scientists such as Michelangelo and Galileo, as well as treaties from all eras in history.
I hope they finish it. They seek donations, which is alright, I guess but they are in fact one of thte major holders of wealth on the planet so in a sense it is, I dont know, less alright, perhaps. Anyway I hope it gets done. They estimate fifteen years, which is reasonable.
I told myself and therapist #2 that I was going to do a nice blog post today on the PC as I am not at band and have all day and the desktop WordPress is worlds better than this stupid app.. Well, I have till 5 anyway.
So I started pretty early… It is now 6 minutes to 2 and the damn PC only just loaded the page. Over 2 hours. I am so stressed out I can hardly scream or cry though those reactions might help.
I am thinking that it is the prehistoric PC that I am stuck with. XP, Pentium 4 2.8 – really old like over 10 years. It was nice back then and it’s outlived the custom handmade BOXX workstation, but it is just so frustrating… All that time wasted and time is not very available without compromising my aunt’s care which I just won’t do.
So I gave up with it and am writing this on the very limited android app. So I am so sorry readers, but imagery and suchlike will be uncommon treats which upsets me as I love doing that for myself as well as for you.
I think in the second to last post, a simple YT video with a paragraph took about 45 minutes and that was “good.”
Basically I have been trying these days to see the good in life and try to convince myself that I should not snuff it when my aunt goes home. There are quite a few folks trying to get me to see as well. Some rare friends on Facebook, the hospice coordinator and care volunteer and the hospice chaplain as well as the home care aide who comes over every day.
Forty five years of depression and bad experiences limit the ability to see any good things… I have never been happy, for example, I just do not know what that means. I can not relate when people tell me I should be so.
For the past few weeks now I have been trying hard to get my thoughts going in the direction most say they should go… towards a positive attitude regarding the future and what it might bring. It is slow going, to be sure as I have convinced myself over the decades that nothing good would or even could happen to me, if only because it never had. That of course is not counting the handful of real friends I have, who I treasure and love deeply. There have been so many more false people who did their level best to hurt me and always succeeded.
I believe I can change that standard line of self destructive thinking and replace it with positivity, but it is going to take some effort. I am grateful for my strengths… people are always saying that they can’t fathom how I do what I have done these past few years. That must be a positive thing I think. So, yeah, dammit I am going to do it.
Maybe I won’t have to die alone, even.
That’d be nice, but, breath holding is not advised.
I don’t know… hopefully it will all work out… I am pretty much convinced though that I will be starting anew with not a dime once the state and the feds get through sucking the life out of what’s left.
Anyway, peace and I thank you for still being there.
Hoping that this post off my tumblr timeline includes the gifs, as they are, pretty much, the post. I think that they are very well thought out and executed.
This bokku-chan fellow is a great artist and pretty hip in my humble opinion. If you’re on tumblr follow along.
Spending a lot of time thereabouts lately as I am usually at my aunt’s side in this hospice chapter and it is too easy on this moderately-smart phone.

I like yowies. Really. Don’t know why—they just trigger some level of excitement.
And for some reason the place where this post’s featured encounter happened, the Pilliga Scrub, does the same! Odd, I know. It’s the only location I know of where fighting union workers called a truce and worked together to get the word out to help folks avoid dirt naps.
Perhaps growing up where and when I did is the reason that action and reaction hold so much power in my mind. Seriously. That says it all for me and I am old, crusty and jaded.
This report is long but paced so that it doesn’t matter. Choc-a-bloc with details, enthusiasm and great visuals from the story being told.
The video comes as well from a group I have so far found to be true and proper in their integrity and goals.
Anyway, enjoy and,
This is a song that I grew up with… it’s in me, as it were. It was aired on the fabulous WFUV the other day and it rekindled a lot of memories.
I think it’s fabulous and I hope you do, too.
It’s been over a month, I noticed. I am sorry.
Duties, depression and not insignificantly the wretched “performance” of the Verizon FiOS fiber optic connection, which on many (read: most) days is, I swear to God, SLOWER than the old dial up modems. Really. Not kidding. Verizon sucks, to put it as politely as possible and it makes it a stressful chore to even reply to an email.
I’ve spent FORTY FIVE minutes on this post already.
My entire tech world is crumbling around me and I am going blind. I am not a happy man. I have never been a happy man.
I keep trying though. Starting this week I’ll have two therapies a week, with two different people. It might work and I hope it does but coming up fast on 60 years of total failure has drained a heck of a lot of will out of me and very nearly 100% of my motivation. To do anything. Literally.
What I want to see is a return to my old posting frequency and the turning of all the stuff I read online into grist for your mill.
Wish me luck.

“Whoever, therefore, insinuates notions of government contrary to the constitution, or in any way winks at any measures to suppress or even to weaken it, is not a loyal man.

“The type of UFO reports that are most intriguing are close-range sightings of machine-like objects of unconventional nature and unconventional performance characteristics, seen at low altitudes, and sometimes even on the ground. The general public is entirely unaware of the large number of such reports that are coming from credible witnesses... When one starts searching for such cases, their number are quite astonishing. Also, such sightings appear to be occurring all over the globe.”
Professor James E. McDonald from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Arizona speaking at the AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) in 1968
“As a result of several trips to project Bluebook,I’ve had an opportunity to examine quite carefully and in detail the types of reports that are made by Bluebook personnel. In most cases, I have found that there’s almost no correlation between so-called “evaluations and explanations” that are made by Bluebook and the facts of the case...
There are hundreds of good cases in the Air Force files that should have led to top-level scientific scrutiny of this problem,years ago,yet these cases have been swept under the rug in a most disturbing way by Project Bluebook investigators and their consultants.”

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience ...

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted.

In 1961, a US Air Force document stated that:
In addition to their staff duty assignments, intelligence team personnel have peacetime duty functions in support of such Air Force projects as Moon Dust, Blue Fly and UFO, and other AFCIN directed quick reaction projects which require intelligence team operational capabilities.
Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO): Headquarters USAF has established a program for investigations of reliably reported unidentified flying objects within the United States.
Blue Fly: Operation Blue Fly has been established to facilitate expeditious delivery to Foreign Technology Division of Moon Dust or other items of great technological intelligence interest.
Moon Dust: As a specialized aspect of its overall material exploitation program Headquarters USAF has established Project Moon Dust to locate, recover, and deliver descended foreign space vehicles
In 1947, USAAF Commanding General Nathan Twining signed Air Materiel Command’s message that UFOs were real.
“As requested by AC/AS-2 there is presented below the considered opinion of this command concerning the so-called “Flying Discs”:
a. The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious.
b. There are objects probably approximately the shape of a disc, of such appreciable size as to appear to be as large as man-made aircraft.
c. There is the possibility that some of the incidents may be caused by natural phenomena, such as meteors.
d. The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and action which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically or remotely.
