About this blog

This blog began as just random tidbits that I would post of things that either irritated me or I found humorous. I still post those items to ease the pain of my third eye being blinded by a soup spoon, yet it’s evolved into so much more. I cover topics such as religion, entertainment, the unexplained, and whatever I may have thought was interesting at the time.

perhaps you will find something to your liking, or even disgust, but at the end of the day it’s my hope that you at the very least were entertained, and at most gave you something to think about.

Gremlins

Dictionary.com defines the gremlin as follows. noun a mischievous invisible being, said by airplane pilots in World War II to cause engine trouble and mechanical difficulties. any cause of trouble, difficulties, etc., especially in a mechanical, electrical, computer, or other system: A loose wire was the gremlin that blew out th

Fake History: A Chihuahua’s tail with a side of mayo.

Many a year ago, I worked at a pizzeria. Myself and a few other employees were sitting around gabbing before we opened. A friend of mine had told me a story of when she worked at a pet store and had to pronounce chihuahua phonetically to get the correct spelling. Think  Chi who-ahh who-ahh. Another co-worker came in to the conversation at the tail end and promptly corrected my pronunciation. So my brain kicked in and instead of explaining what we were talking about I promptly told her my pr

World Entertainment: England

Yup you’ve read that correctly, this entertainment section comes at us from merry ole England. I’ll break this down by genre and list some shows then pick one to do a brief synopsis on. Some shows will be quite familiar too Americans as some had appeared on PBS (public broadcast station), and cable channels like BBC America, and Britbox. Check your local listings for your region of the world. Those in England may choose to ignore this post or point and laugh as an alleged know it all American bu

The Steller Sea Ape.

Wiki: Steller's sea ape is a purported marine mammal, observed by German zoologist Georg Steller on August 10, 1741, around the Shumagin Islands in Alaska. The animal was described as being around 1.5 m (5 feet) long; with a dog-like head; long drooping whiskers; an elongated but robust body; thick fur coat; no limbs; and tail fins much like a shark. He described the creature as being playful and inquisitive like a monkey. After observing it for two hours, he attempted to shoot and collect the c

The Wild Hunt

The Wild Hunt is a folklore motif occurring across various northern European cultures (motif E501 per Thompson).[1] Wild Hunts typically involve a chase led by a mythological figure escorted by a ghostly or supernatural group of hunters engaged in pursuit.[2] The leader of the hunt is often a named figure associated with Odin in Germanic legends, but may variously be a historical or legendary figure like Theodoric the Great, the Danish king Valdemar Atterdag, the dragon slayer Sigurd, the Welsh

Hotter than a June bug trapped in Hades outhouse

Now that summer is in full swing I hope everyone is finding ways to stay cool. Maybe even as cool as the Fonz if that’s even possible, perhaps Henry Winkler will one day weigh in on the subject. It’s not easy beating the heat and how many times can you sit transfixed in front of the tv with the wimpy 5 yr old fan that couldn’t even keep deep space cool as that cherry Popsicle drips down your hand making a sticky mess in your lap. Perhaps I can inspire you with some  beat the heat ideas, to make

Attack of the (killer) tomatoes, or a child's guide to getting out of eating healthy foods.

Tomatoes; menace killer of aristocrats or silly 80’s horror movie(s)? I will let you decide dear reader but beware, if you die of laughter then you’re only proving that the tomato is the true, one and only… Red Menace! So continue on at your own risk! A nickname for the fruit was the “poison apple” because it was thought that aristocrats got sick and died after eating them, but the truth of the matter was that wealthy Europeans used pewter plates, which were high in lead content. Because to

The art of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi

I am a nerd boy for woodblock art and one of my favorite artists hails from Japan. Whether it’s samurai, yokai, and Oni to name a few there aren’t many who cand stand next to the incomparable Tsukioka Yoshitoshi. Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (Japanese: 月岡 芳年; also named Taiso Yoshitoshi 大蘇 芳年; 30 April 1839 – 9 June 1892) was a Japanese printmaker.[1] Yoshitoshi has widely been recognized as the last great master of the ukiyo-e genre of woodblock printing and painting.

Alien Visitations? Something to think about.

Though I have some blogs in the queue to be public in the near future I thought I would do another something to think about. In the earlier episode I posited that Bigfoot might just shave his body to recreate in the city, the exact opposite of what some humans do by camping in the woods. Todays thought is as follows. Is it possible that the earth an interstellar zoo for those aliens who might be vastly more intelligent than us even just to get here. Humans enjoy zoos to look at animals they

Happy US day of insurrection.

So once again we find ourself coming up on the 4th of July. Fireworks, beer, burgers and dogs, and numerous ‘hold my beer’ moments, and softball will undoubtedly occur. Just in case someone doesn't know why the US celebrates the fourth of July, a primer: The original 13 colonies (on the east coast) were British territories. Some stuff happened that upset people but a big one was the Boston tea party. A bunch of blokes not happy about paying extra taxes on tea dumped that in the bay. There slogan

The Mongolian Death Worm

Growing up in the Pacific NW of the US I heard many a tale about Sasquatch or bigfoot if you would. I don’t remember the book I picked up in primary school about cryptids but it was the first mention of the Mongolian death worm in a very short paragraph. Over the years I had forgotten about the beastie until my adult years in the 90’s when a friend mentioned the name in passing. They shared my weird tastes in cryptozoology. So here for your viewing pleasure, the Mongolian death worm and oth

World Entertainment: Sweden

My extremely limited knowledge of Swedish entertainment began in the 70’s with the Swedish Chef on the muppets, and continued with the super band ABBA.     My tastes have matured as I grw, despite the fact I still enjoy the occasional sweat serenade of the Swedish Chef and Delectable cuisine put out by ABBA. Or is it the other way around? Movies I have seen. 1) The Girl With Dragon Tattoo. I watched the original trilogy that was based off of the

So you love Satan? A dating guide for christian youths and how to break the news to your parents.

It’s always been easy falling in love with that bad boy/girl, but never easy to maintain that relationship when parents and family are hostile towards their precious little angel and the corruptive influence that scamp they’re dating might have on them. Today I will do my best to bridge that gap and bring families back together. I had the time to summon the devil, he showed up and agreed to an interview. It’s not a terribly long one but I was thankful that he took the time to chat with me.

Lycanthropy: would you like a salve for that?

Also known as: loup-garou, Written and fact-checked by The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica werewolf, in European folklore, a man who turns into a wolf at night and devours animals, people, or corpses but returns to human form by day. Some werewolves change shape at will; others, in whom the condition is hereditary or acquired by having been bitten by a werewolf, change shape involuntarily, under the influence of a full moon. If he is wounded in wolf form, the wounds will show in his hum

Tea time with televangelists

Welcome to tea time with televangelists where we look at the absurd claims of preachers for god and profit and mock them without mercy. If you don’t like negative commentary on your faith, religion, or holy people than turn away now. This blog entry is in no way an attack on someone for believing in a god or gods, it is an attack on the hateful and ridiculous things espoused in the name of religion. Before we get in to this let’s open with a hymn. Pat Roberson Of the 700 club

Weird Tales: H. P. Lovecraft

BornHoward Phillips Lovecraft August 20, 1890 -March 15, 1937 (aged 46) Providence, Rhode Island, U.S. Married to Sonia Haft Greene Lovecraft, they eventually divorced… sort of. H. P. Lovecraft had never signed the divorce papers, I haven’t been able to find out an explanation as to why (perhaps divorce was a dirty word and he didn’t wish to besmirch the Lovecraft name) but Sophie eventually went on to remarry a gentleman named Samuel Greene.

Weird Tales: Robert E Howard

Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906 – June 11, 1936) was an American writer. He wrote pulp fiction in a diverse range of genres. He is well known for his character Conan the Barbarian and is regarded as the father of the sword and sorcery sub genre. The second spot of my weird tales goes to Robert E Howard. Not only did he write Conan the Barbarian stories he also wrote ( ) the conqueror, and ( ) of mars. Though he and H. P. Lovecraft corresponded with each other they had never met in per

Weird Tales: Clark Aston Smith

“Clark Ashton Smith (1893-1961), perhaps best known today for his association with H.P Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos, is in his own right a unique master of fantasy, horror and science-fiction. Highly imaginative, his genre-spanning visions of worlds beyond, combined with his profound understanding of the English language, have inspired an ever -increasing legion of fans and admirers.” Though not as well known outside of weird tales like H.

The Cosmic imbalance of it all, it’s not your time Cthulhu.

With my current workload piling up as late I will have to take a break from UM in order to catch up. Don’t worry, I won’t be gone forever… until I die anyway. Sorry not trying to be morbid.      I do have some blog posts that I need to finish in which I’ll post here when time permits.

Sweet Baby Jesus In; The Soiled Diaper Of Destiny.

The huffing of paint, cat urine, or second hand marijuana smoke had no influence in the making of this blog post. (Destiny commonly refers to a specific future or outcome that results from a predetermined or inevitable course of events. The word can also refer to the course of events itself or to the power or force thought to make such things happen. A close synonym for all of these senses of the word destiny is fate) Todays topic is destiny, the question of the day is “Was I destined

Lets start off with literature as this was my one and only attempt at reading a Russian classic due to it being a coworker recommended read.  War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

Exercise your inner demon for fun and fitness.

It has been written that Jesus has allegedly told his disciples that they can exorcise demons and unclean spirits. Mark 3:15 and Mark 6:7. Christianity isn’t the only faith that can do so but more on that later as I focus on the version of demon be gone that gets the most predominant amount of the spotlight.   Bob Larson tells us quite proudly that he has done battle with tens of thousands of demons. In the clip below he does battle with an incest demon. This may be too disturbing for
