Regulars will be aware of the depths of my admiration for this man. Too awesome for words.
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.

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.

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 , 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.

In the old testament of the Bible, the Prophet Ezekiel told of an encounter he had when he was 30 years old way back in the year 592 BC.
In his elaborate account, the prophet recounts the story of a spectacular landing – performed by a highly complex flying object… an object that sounds decidedly like what we modern folk would describe as a spacecraft.
Ezekiel’s account is in fact so detailed that in the 1970s, an Austrian-born former NASA engineer named Josef Franz Blumrich was able to design a blueprint of what Ezekiel saw. This rendering by jeep3r is based on the model that Blumrich created. The image is used with the kind permission of the artist.
I had to make a print! Couldn’t help it.
“I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north.
An immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light.
The center of the fire looked like glowing metal.”
– Ezekiel 1:4
“Spread out above the heads of the living creatures was what looked something like a vault, sparkling like crystal, and awesome.
Under the vault their wings were stretched out one toward the other,
and each had two wings covering its body.”
– Ezekiel 1:23
The thing I find most odd (and fascinating) about this sighting is the remarkable complexity of the craft. It reminds me a little bit of the elaborate way they got Curiosity down on Mars. One might think that whatever sort of propulsion tech in use could set it down or hover abnd move it around a bit – but – I guess not!
Here is a video about this to help visualize it…

The Book of Ezekiel gives little detail about Ezekiel’s life. He is mentioned only twice by name: Ezk. 1:3, where he writes that he was a priest, the son of Buzi; and Ezk. 24:24. He was one of the Israelite exiles, who settled in Tel-abib, on the banks of the Chebar, “in the land of the Chaldeans.” He was most likely taken captive with King Jehoiachin (Ezk. 1:2; 2 Kings 24:14-16) about 597 BC.
Ezekiel would have been born during the time of the spiritual reform of King Josiah.
Ezekiel lost his wife in the ninth year of his exile, by some sudden and unforeseen stroke (Ezk. 8:1; 24:18). The time and manner of his own death are unknown. Today his tomb is reputed to be located in the neighborhood of Hilla or ancient Babylon, at a place called Al Kifl.
The first date of the book takes the reader to the summer of 593 BC, five years after the first group of exiles was deported to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar. The latest-dated oracle comes 22 years after that summer, in April of 571 BC. It can be dated based on the links it records between the rule of King Jehoiachin (King of Jerusalem) and the other events that the book describes. According to this system, these prophecies were originally written in the 22 years between 593-571 BC.
THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET EZEKIEL
1:1- in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
1.2- On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of king Jehoiachim),
1:3- The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was upon him there.
l:4- As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness round about it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming bronze.
1:5- And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: They had the form of men,
1:6- But each had four faces, and each of them had four wings.
1:7- Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were round; and they sparkled like burnished bronze.
1:8- Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus:
1:9- Their wings touched one another; they went everyone straight forward, without turning as they went.

This is so different from other films I have seen… I had to share it!

North Korea lies somewhere between a 1930′s Soviet Union frozen in time and a dark, futuristic vision of society… as imagined back in the 70′s.
“Land of Whispers” invites you to visit arguably the most unique and isolated travel destination in the world – not to criticize, but to observe and listen. Aside from usual highlights such as Pyongyang or Arirang, this unique one-man documentary brings you to areas such as Chongjin or Wonson, still virtually unknown to even google or wikipedia. There, I attempt to pierce through the ever-present ‘national mythology’ and as much as possible, I try to connect with people – such as the waitress mesmerized by tablet computers, or a tour guide cautiously fascinated by modern pop culture.

Nice film, dude!
As regulars might imagine, I watch a lot of films about North Korea. Well… this fellow has managed to do something that I’ve never seen done before in any significant way… and that is to truly engage with and stimulate feelings of friendship and wonder in North Korean people. That… is cool.
One of those people is a member of the official team of government “tour guides.” It got to the point where the guide nearly gets himself into trouble. Impressive, that… an achievement, surely.
Perhaps the filmmaker’s cleverly arranged cover as a videographer making a travel film for the agency arranging the trip, well known to the authorities, helped a great deal. Actually I’m pretty sure it did, as he’d then rank at least a notch above a more standard “tourist.”
The decidedly non-standard outlook taken throughout the journey, combined with a personal quest for truth likely plays the most important role of all, however.
Well… Bravo and all that!

As we enter the 21st century and a new millenium, Satan has devised the delusion that mankind is entering into an important evolutionary phase – a New Age. The push for “global enlightenment” has now extended to the vast reaches of the universe, into what could be deemed as a “space” religion. However, once this nebulous veil is lifted, a definite correlation emerges between the UFO/Alien phenomenon and occultic/satanic activity.
Photo of a Gargoyle, or perhaps, a representation of humanity’s collective memory of the ‘GODS’ or ‘MICE’ who once walked among us. The ancient civilizations of the Egyptians, Babylonians, Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas shared several intriguing characteristics: They were extremely advanced scientifically and technologically. Animal and human sacrifices were performed at an alarming rate, preceding their demise. They believed they had acquired metaphysical knowledge from the “gods”, whom they perceived as coming from the stars and also the subterranean level of the earth. These cultures disintegrated or became abruptly extinct while at the pinnacle of their existence.
Many of these revered and feared entities were described as looking like winged-reptilians or dragons. Similarly, Satan and his minions were depicted in an identical manner, as seen in artwork throughout the centuries.
A monograph entitled, Reality of the Serpent Race, by Branton, reveals, “In Genesis 3 we read about the ‘Nachash’; Hebrew word for ‘Serpent’. The original Nachash was not actually a snake as most people believe, but an extremely intelligent, cunning creature, possessed with the ability to speak and reason.” Another significant parallel from the Holy Bible is shown in Jeremiah 8:17, “Behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices among you, which will bite you, saith the Lord.” The definition of a cockatrice is a reptilian bird-like creature or winged-serpent. This could very well represent the Phoenix, described in Egyptian mythology.
A theory proposed by Bible scholar I.D.E. Thomas asserts that the race of the “Nephilim” (meaning Giants and/or fallen ones), mentioned in Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33, closely resemble the alien race of the blond Pleiadian Nordics, reported to be eight to nine feet tall. The Nazis attempted to revive this mystical Aryan race in the 1930s and 1940s. Mr. Thomas believes that a hybrid offspring culminated from relations between the Nephilim and the “daughters of man” resulting in increased wickedness upon the earth; and thus evoking God’s wrath in the form of the “Great Flood”.
Interviews taken of ex-Wiccans and Satanists (now Christians) indicate a high level of personal contact with various alien types, especially during coven meetings and holiday rituals. Those coming from the highest echelon of Satanism known as the Illuminati, believe the original people who inhabited the earth descended from Mars via the Moon. They believe the first established civilization was Atlantis. Renowned for their superior intellect, the Atlanteans suffered the same fate as a few of the proceeding cultures already mentioned. The remnant people from Atlantis became the American Indians, according to their interpretation of history.
Dr. Richard Boylan has written extensively about E.T. encounters, and has found five common features of people predominately involved in UFO/alien sightings and abductions: Individuals possessing a high degree of psychic ability. Similar phenomenon occurring with other family members (multi or trans-generational). Native Americans and/or indigenous peoples. Children who have been subjected to severe abuse or trauma. Individuals and/or family members affiliated to government and/or military intelligence agencies or departments.
In conjunction, a strong relationship exists between occultic ritual sites, top secret military installations, and UFO/alien sightings and abductions. There also appears to be a magnetic spiritual vortex (or vacuum) which has drawn an many “New Agers” into these areas (Taos, NM; Sedona,AZ; Boulder, CO, etc.). One prime example is the area near Dulce, NM, where the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has a highly-secured underground complex on the Jicarella Indian Reservation — a region known for Native American shamanism. The facility is said to be used for genetic engineering, including cloning. Several witnesses who were employed there reported seeing different breeds of aliens.
Digging the music… quite the aural treat!
I am not quite sure what to say about the essay, though. I was told that the treatise above was written with me and folks like me in mind, but I do not know that that is a fact or not. Knowing the person who said it quite well does, however, lend credence to that possibility.
Covers a lot of ground, it does, eh? It is… interesting, to say the least.
I also think a Fortean perspective on it is needed, as there are bits in there that are relating to highly speculative happenings.

This pleasurably relaxing piece was referred to me by a friend at a time where such a “breather” was sorely needed. That was back at the end of March… sigh.
There are drafts aplenty waiting for things to gain a semblance of something that could be construed as normal, including a much more modern piece of music sent by another dear friend that’s accompanied by a rant of Fortean proportions. Or something like that :)

Well, now… This is really rather nice to listen to! Really.

Finding it most strange that this song was not released back in the day. It would have done very well.
Finding it strange as well that I’ve never heard of it, but then again it was unreleased… so, yeah.
Hat tip and many thanks to my excellent friend and soul sister Mu San for the heads up.
Listening to it is making me smile and that is always a Good Thing.

Now for some harmonics.
Accompanied by a note that said simply “huge beautiful sound waves weaving in and out of phase . . . everything is vibration . . .,” this video arrived via a dear old friend.
Mighty good stuff. Interesting how they run the wands around the bowls to keep the sound going.
This is how this piece is described at the artist’s site:
“So Ham”, based on the six-pointed star, visually represents the sound of OM considered to be the sound of creation. You will want to join us in the So Ham breath, the prayer of life bridging body to spirit as we sound the Vedic creation story.
A lot going on in that summary. Ancient stuff. Need to listen a bit more to connect properly to those old Vedician concepts.
And this is their mantra, it seems… it is the only text on their homepage. Says a lot, though.:
“…the moment you notice that you are just an instrument of the Divine,
… the moment you become like a hollow flute,
… the wind will blow thru you and there will be music.”
I can dig it. It would be nice to able to relax the mind enough so that these swirling, phasing acoustical vibrations could sink in and do their stuff. A good goal… will work on that!
Ah well… enjoy!

Quantum Jump: The Lone Ranger
Sigh. Distractions do affect the timeline…
Meant to get this post in yesterday on January 30th, as yesterday marked the 80th Anniversary of the first public airing of The Lone Ranger.
When I posted that little tidbit to my Facebook page, my good friend Stein, to my delight, responded with this video and this comment:
Happy 80, Lone Ranger!
“He first appeared in 1933 in a radio show conceived either by WXYZ radio station owner George W. Trendl or by Fran Striker, the show’s writer. The show proved to be a huge hit, and spawned an equally popular television show that ran from 1949 to 1957, as well as comic books and movies. The title character was played on radio by George Seaton, Earle Graser, and most memorably Brace Beemer. To television viewers, Clayton Moore was the Lone Ranger. Tonto was played by, among others, John Todd, Roland Parker, and in the television series, Jay Silverheels.” (Wikipedia)
I have an extra affinity for the Ranger… the television show was never missed during my youth, ‘tis true… but then, you see, much later on in life, my aunt went and married her good friend Clayton Moore!
And he had thus become… Uncle Clay.
Such a sweet, kind man he was, too.
