Loreena McKennitt – The Mummers’ Dance

Sometimes a song comes along that sticks in my head. One such some is The Mummers’ Dance by Loreena McKennitt.

Music is the essence of what makes us human. Every civilization developed music in some shape, form or manner.

Lyrics start out:

When in the springtime of the year
When the trees are crowned with leaves
When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
Are dressed in ribbons fair

Songs about nature hold a special place in my heart. I like metal, heavy metal and industrial metal, but songs like The Mummers Dance have a special meaning.  Our modern lives have displaced humanity from where we belong, and that is with nature.  We are not meant to live in cities or in neighborhoods crammed next to each other.

Another example of The Mummers Dance. This video sticks with me as it shows a lot of stuff I relate to – living close to nature, beautiful women, family, and living in peace.

Muslim Migrants Firebomb Bus In Paris

Have you ever asked yourself if the major news outlets are telling you the truth and the whole truth?   Or, maybe, just maybe the major media outlets are pushing an agenda.  One example is when CNN was caught censoring the news.

Ask yourself, did you remember hearing about a bus being firebombed in Paris?

Some kind of barricade, which looks like trash dumpsters, are positioned in the street so that traffic is blocked.

A fire is set on the right hand side of the bus, then there is an explosion.

Reports say everyone made it off the bus.

Terrorism has been denied by local police.  Do we “really” expect the police to say anything different?  Who wants to admit France is being overran terrorist?

How not to act when talking to the police

This is the arrest of Arrest of Floyd Lee Jammer, Jr by the Sweeny Police Department in Sweeny, Texas. Video is from bodycam footage.

Why is it so difficult to conduct oneself properly when talking to the police? Do not call your dog on the police, do not act aggressive, do not curse the police. Do as the police officers ask, answer with yes sir, no sir, yes maam, no maam, and everything will be fine.

Regardless of what you think of the police they have a job to do. Society can not function without “someone” to keep the peace and enforce the law.

What are you thoughts on the situation?  Share your comments.

Alien Skeleton Found On Mars

Wouldn’t it be something is life, or signs of life was found on Mars? Something to prove we are not alone.

The video shows “something” that was pictured on Mars.  Whether or not it shows evidence of past life I do not know.

Watch the video, make up your own mind and go from there.  If you think the video shows some kind of evidence for past life be sure to share your comments below.

Personally, I think it is just a matter of time before we find “something” on the red planet.  What that “something” is will be decided at a later date.  It would be nice if NASA found some kind of evidence of past life.

Sound of Silence

When I first heard this song streaming on I heart radio I instantly fell in love with it. Disturbed, a rock and roll band known for heavy metal songs such as “bodies hit the floor” made a song that touches the soul

Disturbed should make more songs like this. Maybe an album like what Metallica did with their symphony and metal (S&M) album?

There is no doubt Disturbed is a great band. I just feel their earlier works seemed like they were trying too hard to make a product people might like, rather than art.

Over the past few decades music has moved from artist to performers. Todays groups and singers are performers designed to generate revenue, rather than making art. Music is art but. Art will be remembered long after money has lost its glitter.

Monkey Meat and the Ebola Outbreak

On June 26, 2014 Vice posted a video on youtube about the Ebola outbreak in Africa. Little did we know the outbreak was going to get much worse. It is kinda scary that in just six or so weeks the Ebola outbreak went from barley making the news to getting worldwide attention.

There are a several important points in this video:

1. As the population of Africa expands into jungle, the indigenous people will be exposed to viral infections never seen before.

2. We share around 99% of our DNA with primates. When humans keep primates as pets and eat meat from primates, there is an increased risk of exposure.

3. With modern transportation Ebola and other diseases are just a plane ride away from the rest of the world.

OBAMACARE Money for Nothing

For those of you old enough to remember Money for nothing by Dire Straits, here is a version singing about spreading the wealth and obamacare.

In short, while people were busy watching TV the nation was stole from under our noses.

What are we going to tell our kids and grandkids when they ask why they have to buy healthcare when other first world nations get healthcare supplemented by taxation.

Future generations will think of us like we think about our great great grandparents. What the hell were they thinking when the income tax passed? What the hell were we thinking when mandatory buying health insurance was passed?

Walls fall out

Have you ever seen something that is so gross, but yet so stimulating that you can not turn away?

That is what walls fall out is like. Walls fallout has been called a prolapse awareness video, but it is so much more than that.

Its like a parasite that eats into your brain and you can not get it out.

After you finish watching it, you will feel like ripping your eyeballs out in a fit of rage. Then feel like shoving your eyes back in you you can watch the video again.

You will be screaming at the monitor, “what the hell am I watching, but why can’t I turn it off!!!!!!!”

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Austin cop gets a call about people with guns

Come and take It Texas, Austin division is doing their monthly walk, when someone calls the cops to report people with guns. the caller said the people with the guns were being nice. Which is a thumbs up to the caller.

From the video, the citizens are in Subway ordering food when the cop shows up. Cop talks to the citizens, cop talks to Subway employees, everything goes better than expected.

Believe it or not, in Texas citizens have the right to carry a long arm in public. But here lately certain police departments have been trying to make political statements but harassing people who are exercising their rights.  One such incident was in Beaumont Texas were a man was arrested for carrying an AR-15.

If the people do not use their rights, those rights are slowly taken away. With gun hating liberals trying to take our gun rights away we need more people to take a stand.

At 9 minutes into the video there is a discussion about the Texas Department of Public Safety is trying to use policy to override stay law. It will to be interesting to see how this works out in the courts if Texas DPS arrest people for exercising their rights.

I applaud the Austin police officer who responded to the call in the video. You set a wonderful example for others to follow.

Chickens see snow for first time

Chickens in snow
Thursday January 23rd we started to get snow here in southeast Texas, I am in the Jasper area to be exact. Between Thursday night and into Friday morning at sunrise we ended up with 2 inches of snow on the ground and 3 inches of snow on the top of the chicken house and other places off the ground.

When I let the hens out in the morning they usually run out of the house and start looking for food. With snow on the ground it was a nopeday. As in nope, they are not going outside. The hens would go down the ladder to under the chicken house. Look around for a few minutes, then go back up the ladder.

After about 6 hours I finally took a couple of hens and set them out in the snow. From there things were ok.

When my wife and I built this chicken house off the ground I was worried about how the chickens would do in cold weather. This is the second winter and so far none of the hens have shown any signs of frostbite.

300: Rise of an Empire Preview

A new trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire has been posted. I have to admit, this movie looks like it is going to be awesome.

Zack Snyder is returning to the project, which means it is going to have awesome visuals. Anyone remember the “wow” factor from the original 300? Chances are we are going to see a replay.

It looks like March and April are going to be good months for movies. 300: Rise of an Empire is being released on March 7, 2014 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier is being released April 4, 2014. April 4th also just happens to by my wifes birthday.

Iceland jails financial terrorist

Why don’t more nations follow the example set by Iceland and throw corrupt bankers (financial terrorist) in prison?

I did not know it until I watched this video, but the Federal Reserve protects bankers from certain types of criminal prosecution.

If there are no punishments for breaking the law, what is the deterrent? If bankers can make loans to companies they know are going to fail, then buy the company for pennies on the dollar, what is stopping them from rigging the market?

The more I learn about American banks and the federal reserve, the more I understand how rigged the system truly is. If you want the honest truth, the average working class family has no chance against the banks who can print money out of thin air.

Consider this, after the housing crash in 2008, the federal reserve has been printing around $85 billion a month in free money. Then using that money to buy mortgages. Before long the federal reserve will be the largest property owner in the United States.

If You Like Your Plan You Can Keep It

Rap video about the lies the American people were told.

What amazes me, not only was obama elected once, he was relected.

Are people really this stupid? I bet if obama could run for a third term the sheeple would elect him for a third term.

Most people are not ready for the truth. and the truth is we are going to get screwed over on our health care. Who do we have to blame? Place the blame where it belongs, on people who vote for for a living. Rather than electing a qualified person to lead this nation, we elected someone who is good at reading from a teleprompter.

Something to warm your soul

A little something to warm your soul on a cold winter day.

Faith in humanity restored.

In the heart of giving

Be sure to watch the video all the way through.

The good man out of the goodness of his heart brings forth that which is good.
