Nightmares in Camelot: Imprisoned by the Luminoids

You really have to wonder about The Outer Limits sometimes. The show was very cheaply produced and the crude effects don't hold up to modern standards, but underneath it all are some pretty startling concepts and plot devices.

Weighing of the Heart

OK, this is interesting. This little bit of evangelizing starts with a cute premise, goes on a bit too long and then ends with a thud.

Gus Grissom/Obama Meme Going Viral?

In the past 36 hours this blog has been bombarded with thousands of hits, after a Drudge Report-type site linked to part one of the Gus Grissom/Barackobamun piece. There were the usual corny old jokes about "tinfoil hats" and all of the rest of the worn-out snark in the comments sections (along with some stunning displays of poor reading comprehension), but that represents only a tiny percentage of the traffic. 

Hollywood's New Alien Blitz

One thing about the entertainment press- they love to spot trends. They love to take a few scattered films or books or records and lump them together as some new sort of cultural phenomenon.

Jack Kirby, Mindbomb: OK, This is Completely Insane

In my most recent extravaganza, I asked this impertinent question:
Is creativity a form of shamanic communion with forces beyond our ordinary experience? Are there certain individuals who are able to tap into the deepest recesses of consciousness where the gods are waiting?

Space/Gods: Mars, Moonshots and Masonry

Check out the Telegraph's gallery of Apollo UFO imagery

OK, I've got a lot of ground to cover here - I'm going to try to cover some of the weirdness aspects of Apollo 11, as well as all of the varying theories and controversies over it. But I did want to hit this story.

Must-See TV: Hangar 18

I'm catching up with work after my sick day so I thought I'd pass this old UFO classic that Bruce Rux chats with Tim Binnall about onto you all.

Transformers, part 2: Ultraterrestrials

Angels=alien androids

John Keel's work has been floating around in my head in a oblique way, as I continue to process all of the Keelian weirdness that's gripping the world. In particular, I've been thinking about Keel's "ultraterrestrial" theory.

Transformers: The Eternals by Any Other Name...

OK, I finally saw it. In optimal conditions, no pun intended. It was the 10 PM showing on July 4th, so we literally had the theater all to ourselves. Got a parking spot right outside the front door. The environment is usually very important to me when I'm watching a movie - and this was definitely a movie where I wanted to pay close attention - so the absence of NJ knuckleheads was appreciated.

Doctor Who Meets the Mushroom of Horus

The big "news" this week was the so-called "discovery" of water (or past evidence of it, rather) on Mars. Of course, they've known about all of that for ages, but the announcement was surely timed for some obscure/arcane purpose we can only guess at.

Ritual Olympics: We'll Make Great Pets

When you start to look for evidence of a subliminal alien agenda at work in the media, you begin to find it in the most unlikely places. 

Last year we looked at the "UFO" that landed at the closing ceremonies of the 1984 Olympics. I'm not exactly sure what the point of it all was, and I'm not sure a lot of the visiting athletes- many of whom come from extremely conservative traditional societies- appreciated it either.
