    I can't believe they're still around. I had a friend that was teaching English in China, had a Japanese girlfriend (Godzilla movie extra) and had never heard of them...hmmm, maybe he was the one that told me about them...

    He lost it when John Lennon was murdered...

    Netflix's new comedy series, 'Space Force' to premiere next month

    Netflix announced that its new comedy series based on the concept of President Trump's newly launched space force will premiere next month.

    The new series, starring famed comedic actor Steve Carell, will hit the streaming service on May 29, the company said on Wednesday.

    Trump in 2018 directed the Pentagon to create a space force as the Department of Defense's sixth military service branch. The move has been a talking point for the president in the past, with supporters chanting "space force" at his rallies in the months following the directive.

    According to The Associated Press, the new service was officially launched in late December 2019. Last month, it sent its first military communications satellite into space.

    The series, also titled "Space Force," will follow Carell's character, a general who will head the new military branch, and other officials tasked with creating the "newest branch of the U.S. armed forces."

    In addition to Carell, who portrayed the popular character Michael Scott in "The Office," the company said the series will also star actors John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Jimmy O. Yang, Diana Silvers and Lisa Kudrow.

    Netflix released its first trailer of the new show, which it described as a "workplace comedy," early last year.

    "On June 18, 2018, the federal government announced the creation of a 6th major division of the United States armed forces," the trailer reads as "Also sprach Zarathustra," featured in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey," plays in the background.

    "The goal of the new branch is 'to defend satellites from attack' and 'perform other space-related tasks ... or something,' " it continues. "This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out."

    The show is created by Carell with the help of Greg Daniels, a famed screenwriter, producer and former showrunner for "The Office."

    A global reset moment ...


    Dmitry Orlov - Coronavirus Crisis: Danger and Opportunity



    Dmitry Orlov discusses the danger and opportunity of the 2020 Coronavirus crisis. “There is a lot happening in the world all at once right now. The entire planet is rapidly reconfiguring itself. The world is begging for a new post-capitalist, post-industrial order to be born...” - a quote from Orlov's latest book 'The Meat Generation', published before the current crisis kicked off. The large scale, hierarchically-organised, and centrally controlled systems in energy, industry, transport, health, banking, politics – and more – upon which our modern societies depend, have once again proven dangerously unstable and inadequate when faced with serious challenges.

    In the case of the current coronavirus meltdown, the real crisis has been the fear, panic, and craven capitulation with which so many have blindly reacted. Theories and speculation abound as to where all of this is taking us and just what a post-coronavirus future may hold. Based on events thus far, however, the wholesale compromise and loss of freedoms of speech, association, assembly, and travel, and the right to choose in health care, appears entirely possible. Whatever happens, a comprehensive return to 'business as usual' seems highly unlikely. The planet is indeed being reconfigured, in ways that are only just beginning to make themselves known.

    A reminder to stay balanced and filter this massive influx into our minds/bodies ...

    Posted today ...

    "Watch out now, take care
    Beware of the thoughts that linger
    Winding up inside your head
    The hopelessness around you
    In the dead of night."
    -George Harrison, "Beware of Darkness", 1970

    I'd prefer to NOT entertain the dark musings of certain alt-media figures, many of whom run platforms of massive distortions by which they earn their living. Discern the language of fear and disempowerment they cast via media, targeting researchers, and those seeking "information".

    The uber-paranoic, neo-apocalyptic rantings of wags who are are using energetic black magic spells to emotionally disempower their viewers spewing the constant litany of how "they" control us, in the so-called alt-media is yet another layer of the disconnect from our own native emotional state.

    Humans in their native emotional intelligence tend towards freedom, positive outcomes, and spiritually nourishing energies. We are truly beings formed in the very image of our Creator, who placed inside us the quanta of Their very desire for hope, joy, and expansion.

    When did constant invocations of doom, fear, and powerlessness become useful energy for the living souls? When did constant dark utterances become a substitute for affirmation of the Divine living spark inate within us?

    At this moment in our collective unfolding, we are to be reminded that the powers of this universe desire FOR us; that we are to simply stand, and proclaim our divine immanence. That every WORD we speak is to be the affirmation of divine intent of Love towards the creation.

    I want to assert that, yes, this is a dark hour. Many of us expected it as the ages shifted, and the dying powers of darkness rail against their own nothingness. It serves no purpose to allow thoughts of doom and capitulation to evil into our hearts. If "they" were winning, why this? Why now?

    Stop allowing toxic communications into your inner sanctum. The way out is IN, the path forward is THROUGH. Your emotional bodies will respond to the subtle energies, be they dark or light. Use this time to meditate on the living light within each of you.

    Do not allow these dark spells of fearful men to penetrate your core beingness. Meditate on what is good, what is wise, and what empowers. Turn off the fear porn, and soak in the essence of the eternal beings you ARE, not these humanoid skeletons of fear and death that feed on your lower energies.

    If each of us summon our higher selves, no weapons formed against us will prosper. We are what we believe. Stop listening to liars!

    The Light is out there...it's INSIDE you. You are the Universe.

    The fez is a registered mark of the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant. And this music is of course by Steely Dan with a third credited writer, Paul Griffin, who also plays the organ on the song.

    I've watched a lot of Planet Earth. It's hard to watch the birds eat the baby birds. And the parents try to fight the larger birds off, often to no avail.

    I watched our cat catch bunnies one by one and kill them. But the cat did not swallow them whole.
