We’re takin’ over We have the truth This is the mission to see it through –“We Are Here To Change The World” (not to be confused with “We Are The World”)
Technically, the 1986 3D sci-fi production Captain EO is not a movie. Rather, it’s a 17-minute Michael Jackson video that just happens to be directed by Francis Ford Coppola, co-written by George Lucas, and shown exclusively at the Disney theme parks. (Now there’s a rather interesting combination of factors!)
Introduction:First, if you are new to this blog, please be advised that it is generally a synthesis of esoteric ideas, pop-cultural analysis, and a bit of my own life. I may jump from one idea to another quite frequently and/or without warning; this type of narrative may-or-may-not be of interest to you.
Hi, I’m being blackmailed into robbing the Vatican by a psychotic American corporation and the C.I.A..
My name is Kit Kat
This is not a dream
1991’s Hudson Hawk is pretty much an unbearable vanity project specifically created to showcase the wit and wisdom of Bruce Willis (who is pretty much neck-in-neck with Nic Cage for most hit/bomb/hit/bomb cinematic track-record).
But the film also strangely shares certain esoteric resonances with 2006’s Da Vinci Code. Let’s explore a few, segueing into one of my favorite obscure movie characters, Kit Kat!
I believe nothing of my own that I have ever written.
Charles Fort (1874-1932) was a writer and researcher whose works on anomalous phenomena was highly influential not only on future generations of investigators but pop-culture as well.
Fort spent his life digging through stacks of books, amassing piles of newspaper clippings, and cataloging all manner of recorded unexplained events in human history—driven by the belief that scientists and other authorities wanted to hide and blot out the existence of these uncanny occurrences that they failed to explain.

One of the points I’ve tried to make on this site is that we are soon to enter another era. That many of the things the media is most concerned about are things that are passing away—not things of the most vital importance for you now, certainly not things that will prepare you for the future.
One thing I’ve recently noted on Twitter is how an awful lot of the stuff I’ve been writing about over the past 5-10 years are all starting to become really relevant at the same time…and that instead of giving me joy, it’s sort of given me the opposite of joy.
I’ve also switched a lot of my Twitter content to humor, which is in direct correlation to how f**ked the world seems at the moment.
The impulse to change is natural and a part of every human’s evolutionary process. And yet to some people, Change is terrifying—not just the idea of change happening to themselves, but happening to people they know (and even to total strangers).
As you set out on the path of Evolution, you may find that others—even those closest to you, ones who might have even initially encouraged the Change—will throw obstacles in your way.

So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind.
