A 2012 Halloween

And even though on this day finds itself another one of those Sundays that has rolled around, that day of the sun, the day of rest, the Sabbath, or is that Saturday? I still find myself blogging away for some reason. And so that holiday of All Saints Day, the spooky witches holiday has rolled around again this year, so much that I find myself posting those Halloween photos above. And that NYC Village Halloween Parade 2012 must be on the way again, and houses are starting to be decked out in Halloween decorations as if to be haunted houses, and are the dead going to awake? And Halloween parties and events are starting to arise, those pop up Halloween stores selling those Halloween costumes are starting to arise, and are ghosts going to appear in the day of the dead, or the day of the devil or something like that. Maybe every day should be Halloween, as then we could be free to walk on earth as who we want to be without thinking of what others think of us, or something like that. Then again in that neighborhood of the East Village to be found in New York City, every day is Halloween, I think. Have a great impending Halloween day and more.

A Day Of Martin Luther King, Jr




And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 122. And Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together are still moving fast. And on this day finds itself as Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday, that civil rights leader of long lore ago. And there seems to be a ton of memorials, tributes and rallies for him on this day. And reading the texts and excerpts from his many speeches seem inspirational that we shall overcome someday. “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A 2012 New Year










Hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blagh. And a 2012 new year is here. And if you ask a Mayan, it’s 2012AD or 13.0.0.0.0, a doomsday end of the world long countdown for the Maya 2012 calendar that started on Winter Solstice December 21st. A time for change, the end of the world as we know it, or something like that. And 2012 is also here because all of those Jeff Stark New Years Eve nonsense nyc events says so. And 2012 is also here because that Nublu flyer that finds itself posted above and Malik Work’s New Year’s Eve @ The Lucky Basement facebook event invite also says so, as well as a host of other New Years Eve events and parties that find themselves in that city of New York and other places around the world. And if you happen to be in the neighborhood of that city of New York, some of those nonsense nyc events are as follows. And keep in mind, In 2013 I will watch 2012 and laugh. Have a great new year and beyond.

The Beast Again


Okay, it’s not exactly that holiday of Halloween as I look at that Gregorian calendar on wall. It’s just that this is yet another one of those recycle this blog posts in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible.

Abracadabra! Open sesame! Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Metal, Wood. It is still Halloween today. And this day could be a blessing or a curse, as that is what the word abracadabra means according to that Internet dictionary Wikipedia. “Avracadabra” is derived from the Hebrew, ha-brachah, meaning “the blessing” and dabra, an Aramaic form of the Hebrew word dever, meaning “pestilence”. And it is also the origin of the name of that fat bellied demon Abraxas, a Gnostic word for God which was thought to be a spell of great power. His name adds up to exactly 365, whatever that could mean. And it is magic and occult. And for what reason does that triangle photo placed in this blog entry look like half of a pentagram, I am not sure. And today is that scary, supernatural and mystical time of year when the devil, Satan, Christ and the spirits of the dead come to town. When Pan and the Grim Reaper awakes and witchcraft, witches, gargoyles and Gothics come out to play and when one gets to masquerade and play dress up for whoever they want to be. And in a change of topic that comes to mind, I am thinking of that great beast in Revelations, as those California wildfires are still burning and they are reminding me of Armageddon or the apocalypse or something enough to make me think it is the beginning of the end. Or maybe it is just global warming or mother nature. And I also seem to be running out of things to blah blog about these days again. And so those religious thoughts come to mind again as I ask myself, who or what is that beast that is to be found in the Book of Revelations. Who or what is this beast that seems to have its grip on mankind and the world and will not let go in the seemingly endless amount of atrocities that happen on a daily basis in the world these days that are too innumerable to mention with no end in sight. Who or what does the beast represent? Is it that beast that Babylon sits on that I posted about a few postings ago. And when I think of the beast, more thoughts come to mind; Babylon, confusion, the anti Christ, technology, the microprocessor, a cashless society, the Middle East, the European Union, globalism, security, terrorism, nuclear energy, national I.D’s, the collapse of morality, trials and tribulations, wars and rumors of wars and Satan ruling the world etc;. Are these some of the top ten prophecy signs of the beginning of the end. And again when I think of the beast I think of gun violence and glory, the worst invention of an industry ever, and all of the things that kill man, man made or nature; wars, famine, disease, plagues, wild beasts, and save no man that he may buy or sell except that he has the mark of the beast upon his forehead, or is that his right hand, for it is the number of a man, 666. Whatever that means. And who are those beasts full of eyes, and those horses that are to be found in Revelations. That could be a whole another blog posting. And much like the verse of Babylon, there is a wealth of information to be interpreted. And so to make this blog posting an even longer posting to read and possibly the longest posting I have posted yet.., I am posting that all to familiar verse to be found in the book of Revelations. If you believe. Watch and be ready. Happy Halloween.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

A Black Friday Buy Nothing Day

It’s that time of year again and the holiday season seems to be upon us. And the shop, shop until you drop season seems to also be upon us also. And it’s also Occupy Wall Street Day 69 on this Thanksgiving Day of a holiday here in North America according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall. And remember the Indians and eat more tofurky, or something like that. And according to Occupy Wall Street’s website tomorrow is also Buy Nothing Day. And their website reads something like as follows:

You’ve been sleeping on the streets for two months pleading peacefully for a new spirit in economics. And just as your camps are raided, your eyes pepper sprayed and your head’s knocked in, another group of people are preparing to camp-out. Only these people aren’t here to support occupy Wall Street, they’re here to secure their spot in line for a Black Friday bargain at Super Target and Macy’s.

Occupy gave the world a new way of thinking about the fat cats and financial pirates on Wall Street. Now lets give them a new way of thinking about the holidays, about our own consumption habits. Lets’ use the coming 20th annual Buy Nothing Day to launch an all-out offensive to unseat the corporate kings on the holiday throne.

This year’s Black Friday will be the first campaign of the holiday season where we set the tone for a new type of holiday culminating with #OCCUPYXMAS. As the global protests of the 99% against corporate greed and casino capitalism continues, lets take the opportunity to hit the empire where it really hurts…the wallet.

On Nov 25/26th we escape the mayhem and unease of the biggest shopping day in North America and put the breaks on rabid consumerism for 24 hours. Flash mobs, consumer fasts, mall sit-ins, community events, credit card-ups, whirly-marts and jams, jams, jams! We don’t camp on the sidewalk for a reduced price tag on a flat screen TV or psycho-killer video game. Instead, we occupy the very paradigm that is fueling our eco, social and political decline.

Historically, Buy Nothing Day has been about fasting from hyper consumerism – a break from the cash register and reflecting on how dependent we really are on conspicuous consumption. On this 20th anniversary of Buy Nothing Day, we take it to the next level, marrying it with the message of #occupy…

We #OCCUPYXMAS.

Shenanigans begin November 25!

Adbusters Buy Nothing Day / #OCCUPYXMAS Page

And that recycle this blog post for Black Friday that found itself posted on this blog some time a while ago, also reads something like as follows:

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is upon us, according to the calendar and advertisements, and it’s the most joyous festival time of the year, or is it. And Thanksgiving Day in America is later this week, that nationalistic day to be thankful for something. And remember the Indians, their beads and trinkets, that twenty four dollars and the land of Manna-hatin, and eat more tofurky. No one is free when others are oppressed. And isn’t the day after Thanksgiving day Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, or is that the day after Christmas. Well this year the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 23rd, is also Buy Nothing Day and isn’t this day celebrated around the world. I am not exactly sure what the story behind this concept is, but I think it has something to do with buying nothing. And Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping will be out there in the streets with shopping events all over New York City all day long. And I imagine there will be a ton of other events in observation of this day. Adbusters will be hitting the streets for a 24 hour consumer fast and there will be a Buy Nothing Day Freegan Feast on this day also. Maybe one can help save the environment and planet earth on this day by consuming less. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

Honor The Veterans?

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. Is tomorrow, 11.11.11, Veterans Day or something according to that North American Gregorian calendar on the wall and all of those newspaper articles for Veterans Day that find themselves in newspaperland on this day. Well then I guess I could find it Veterans Day appropriate to post another one of those recycle this blog posts for Veterans Day day on this blagh in an attempt to maintain content for this blog whenever web 2.0 social media user generated content blaghers block possible.

Honor The Veterans?

And on this day finds itself another one of those Sundays that has rolled around. The day of the sun, the day of rest, the sabbath. Or is that Saturday. And yet I find myself recycling this blog with posts that have already been posted on this blog for some reason or another in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible. And so it isn’t exactly Veterans Day on this day as far as that calendar on the wall says, as this is yet another one of those Orwellian news speak like posts that finds itself on this blog, though I would think that some sort of patriotic holiday has passed according to that American Gregorian calendar on the wall.

I thought I heard someone say yesterday that today or tomorrow is Veterans Day, another one of those patriotic holidays where the flag wavers come out in force. Let me check the calendar to see. Oh yeah, the calendar says Veterans day is today. Is this day observed in America only, or is this day observed in the rest of the world also? And so I find myself reposting a posting I posted several months ago for Memorial day, another one of those patriot holidays where the American flag wavers come out in force. Veterans account for a majority of the homeless mentally ill population these days, and a majority of them are disabled now as a result. For what reason is this an honor to support? I consider myself antipsychiatricky and do not believe mental illness exists and that psychiatry kills and originates from Nazi Germany where psych cia trists were mass murderers in white coats as is the case today, and that the mental death system is also an extension of Orwellianism, where family members turn in family members, and neighbors turn in neighbors to the thought police for thought crimes. Psychiatry and psych trickery is an art and not a science. And so I would like to think of mental illness as problems in living. And I believe in the abolishment of forced psych cia trick treatment that is often cruel and inhumane. Therapy? The rap y? Y the rap? Therapist, The rapist. Mind Freedom is a great website to read for all things alternative to the mental death system. And so today is Memorial Day in America. I mean Veterans day in America. A celebration of the war day. Another one of those patriotic holidays. The flag wavers are out and yellow ribbons, badges of honor, medals, parades, marches, prayers, patriotic songs, tributes and ceremonies are being broadcast everywhere. The headlines read “Honor the dead soldiers, honor the fallen soldiers and comrades”. Today is the ultimate patriotic fanatic holiday, or the ultimate hate hour as George Orwell might say. My question of the day; for what reason is it an honor to volunteer to be fodder for the canon. For what reason is it an honor to die for nothing, to fight for reasons that do not exist, to fight against the flesh for powers that be that one cannot even see. For what reason is it an honor to be so poor that one will volunteer their life in exchange for money after one leaves the service, if one leaves the service. For what reason is it an honor for persons to be brainwashed with propaganda, theirs or mine. For what reason is it an honor to become a violent person and pick up a gun and kill another person for no reason at all, except for the fact that guns have been invented, the worst invention of an industry ever. For what reason is it an honor to be a veteran who now make up the majority of the homeless population. For what reason is it an honor to attend one of those military sponsored funerals and cry over the image of a flag that propagates violence, the same flag that caused ones death. For what reason is it an honor to fall and die for nothing. For what reason is it an honor to promote this ideology. What is heroic about all of this? And why does the word “Patriot” have the word “Riot” in it? And why does the word “Military” militant militia have the word “Mal” in it? “Parens Patriae, father of the people”, the guardian. That phrase seems to be the basis of an endless amount of death and suffering in the world; the protection of property or other material things. I saw Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 documentary. It is nineteen eighty four and Orwellianism is everywhere at its best today. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be a continuous cycle, I think. Is it written somewhere that this must all come to pass? Happy beach bar b queing Memorial day, I mean Veterans day. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
