A friend called me a couple days ago and said that I should watch the 1st episode of Season 10, of The X-Files. I was told it seemed to border around soft alien disclosure. So of course, I viewed it. Considering I follow things dubbed conspiracies. If I had to surmise in one word it would be ‘jarring.’ Written and directed by Chris Carter, the episode encapsulates much of what made The X-Files such a hit back in the ’90s. Carter was sending us all a message, to all those with an ear to hear.

The most fascinating part in my opinion was everything outlined in this episode had already happened in this reality! It’s not unusual in TV, yes I know. It seems they dream it up and things just magically happen.

A point to keep in hindsight, if there is anything to this… some of y’all may need to get off the sofa, put down the remote and start taking control of y-our lives.

But how, Carla?

You probably shouldn’t have asked me that. Now, I’m on a roll! (blink blink blink)

1st step per your boy Carter:

Wake up and realize the evils we see today are initiated and put in place to create problem, reaction, solution scenarios… which are meant to distract, enrage and enslave us in our very own homes with tools like the Patriot Act, The National Defense Authorization Act, which abridged the Constitution in the name of national security. The militarization of police forces in cities around the world. The building of prison camps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency with no stated purpose. The corporate take over of food, agriculture, land, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, our very own military in clandestine agendas to filter, dull, sicken and control a populace already consumed by consumerism. The great United States of America encourages us all to shop more even when many of us are barely making it to our next pay check…and we do just that…shop.

What the hell am I talking about?! This is suppose to be a review, right? Oh yeah, it is. It was a good show. I’m watching it again, as I type. Everything I’ve written so far is pretty much how the program went. Yes, they got good and dirty with conspiracy theories. But if its happening, is it still a conspiracy? (blink blink)

Let’s continue.

They police us and spy on us and tell us it makes us safer….

A government that taps your phone, collects your data and monitors your whereabouts with impunity. A government preparing to use that data against you when it strikes and the final take over of America. A well oiled and well armed multinational group of elites that will cull, kill and subjugate happenings as we sit here and allow it to happen all around us.

The other shoe waiting to drop.

More chaos is coming and you best behold cause it will probably happen on a Friday. Black Friday.

Possible Scenario:

The banks will announce a security action necessitating their computers to go offline all weekend. BEWARE. Digital money will disappear. Yes, my friend, they can and will steal your money. This followed by the detonation of strategic electromagnetic pulse bombs knocking out all major grids. What will seem like an attack on America by terrorists or Russia or even a simulated alien invasion using alien replica vehicles that exist and are already in use! What? Yes, you got it Sherlock. An alien invasion of the US. The Russians may have been the ones to try in in 1947.

Does this sound like a warning to you?

What in the hell am I sipping on you wondering? Nothing, nothing at all. This is what the show outlined fool!! (just kidding about callin y’all fools, just playing)

Now I realize some may consider what I’m sharing is nothing more than fear mongering. Spreading paranoia dubbed by mainstream media as bogus, dangerous and so very stupid! I beg to differ. Seriously, I beg to differ, fool! Am I being irresponsible? No! It would be irresponsible and selfish if I did not write about it. But why? Everything I just shared was aired in the very episode of X Files I’m writing about! Most of this is verbatim!

You should be aware of what is happening just in case it happens. This is not behind the scenes type of stuff, this is right in our faces! And the joke is on us…on you, fool. Lol…seriously, just kidding.

Other hot topic conspiracies that were highlighted in this episode of X Files:

  • 9-11 was a false flag
  • Alien reproduction Vehicles (RV’s)
  • Free energy
  • Surveillance programs
  • the 1940s but it’s been covered up
  • Clips of Obama on Jimmy Kimmel not denying the existence of UFO’s (When Obama visited Kimmel in 2015 he denied an alien cover-up)
  • Genetic manipulation and combining human DNA with alien DNA
  • Alien abductions are not really “alien,” but rather by a secret shadow government (Many whistleblowers have come out in recent years affirming this to be true)

Yep, a lot happened in the 44 minutes of the program that begs the question…. What is truth? Who can you trust and where the hell as Mulder been for 8 years?! Oh yeah, Cali-For-ni-cating.

Hey folks, I’m trying something different here, with this quirky blog…it seems no one really takes me seriously when I write about this sort of stuff…maybe in the humor… one or two of you will see the light.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Finale Episode 15: ‘A’ (via http://crooksandliars.com)

By John Amato March 30, 2014 5:19 pm – Comments Here’s a full recap of The Walking Dead’s Season 4 Finale Episode 15: ‘A’ (Spoilers Below) The season four finale is finally here. While it wasn’t the best, it certainly wasn’t the worst either. I actually…

‘The Walking Dead’ recap, season 3, episode 1

‘The Walking Dead’ recap, season 3, episode 1

“The Walking Dead” came back season 3 Sunday night with a wordless opening scene that  identifies how much time has passed not by any dialogue but by how pregnant Lori is – very pregnant indeed.

Another sign that six months has passed: the wariness of each survivor as they search a home for food and possible shelter while killing a few walkers in the wake. Wearing a cowboy hat, Carl is clearly taller, older and more confident with a gun. T-Dog (who is played by local actor Iron E Singleton) is pretty dexterous with a fire poker, too.

Thanks to Daryl, an owl, found at said home, is now considered a meal. But to show how itinerant they have to be, a bunch of walkers are seen coming up the walk and they have to escape yet again.

And we’re off to the races! It was a riveting opening hour interspersing bursts of action with quiet moments, punctuated by a shocker in the end. (SPOILER COMING SOON).

Rick and Daryl discover a prison that Rick considers (ironically) as a possible sanctuary. In a scene that felt less foreboding and more amusing in its video-game quality, the survivors artfully kill off at least 20 walkers in a prison yard, providing themselves the most space they’ve had since Herschel’s farm, as Carol noted. That night, they even have a campfire with singing and  fleeting moments of normalcy (even as zombies wander behind the fence.)

But Rick is looking ahead for the safety of the team. Ammunition is running low. Food supplies appear limited in the  prison yard (which, I was told during a set visit, had been cast parking last season.). He figures given the make up of the walkers, the prison went down fast and means there might be a treasure trove of ammunition, medicine and food available inside.

So they quickly kill off more zombies in the yard area that leads to the building, space inside. There’s even a moment of relative levity when Maggie figures out how to kill zombies in riot gear. They ultimately find a cell block that they use as sleep quarters for now. They also stock up on ammunition and weapons.
Finish Line

Lor  is worried about her baby’s health, given the lack of nutrition and relaxation she’s had. She tells Herschel she thinks if the baby dies inside her womb, it might become a nasty zombie. Or if she dies at birth, she might try to kill the baby. She has Herschel promise someone kill her again if she dies. She is also worried about Rick, who she thinks “hates me.” I don’t know about that necessarily but Rick and Lori could use couples counseling, which is probably in short supply in a post-apocalyptic world.

The mysterious Michonne gets a scene, too. She and Andrea have survived as a duo over the summer but Andrea is really ill.

(MINOR SPOILER): In a future episode, Michonne and Andrea will find Woodbury, led by the sadistic Governor.

In the meantime, here’s the BIG SPOILER: Herschel, Glenn, Rick, T-Dog, Maggie and Daryl enter the prison’s catacombs seeking access to the cafeteria and the health clinic. But instead, they find more walkers. Unfortunately, Herschel tries to walk over a seemingly dead walker who instead munches on Herschel’s left leg.

I was watching the episode at IronE Singleton’s home in Dallas, GA with 100-plus others, including friends and cast such as Mike Rooker, who plays Merle. MINOR SPOILER: He returns for season three at some point with weaponry replacing his lower arm.

The loudest moment from the crowd came when Rick hacked off Herschels’ leg to save his life before the zombie virus took over his body. This was the episode’s cringing “127 Hours” moment but at least it happened quickly.

Moments later, we see at least four survivors of the prison who are not zombies watching from above.

This is good news! Or is it?

Kelly Ripa gets new partner: Michael Strahan from the NFL

USA Today — The new Regis Philbin and partner of Kelly Ripa is Michael Strahan, former NFL player for the New York Giants.

Ripa was promised a new co-host Sept. 4, nine months after longtime partner Philbin said farewell to the syndicated Live with Regis & Kelly daytime talk show after a 28-year run.

Now an executive familiar with the show’s plans confirms Philbin’s replacement is Strahan, a star of short-lived Fox sitcom Brothers. The news was first reported by Broadcasting & Cable.

Strahan was one of 59 co-hosts Disney ABC Television Group has tried out over the past several months, some as larks (Neil Patrick Harris) and others as serious candidates, including Saturday Night Live‘s Seth Meyers, said to have been a finalist despite his denials that he wanted the job.

Strahan, 40, is exactly half Philbin’s age, and will keep his current job as co-host of Fox NFL Sunday, commuting to Los Angeles for that weekend gig.

Michael J. Fox to star in TV comedy as dad with Parkinson’s

(Reuters) – Actor Michael J. Fox, who stepped back from full-time acting in 2000 to focus on fighting Parkinson’s disease, will star in a new TV comedy loosely based on his own life suffering from the illness.

Michael J. Fox will reportedly return to series Television in 2013 for a Sony Pictures Television project (Getty Images / August 20, 2012)

NBC television said on Monday it had ordered a full 22 episodes of an untitled comedy series starring the “Spin City” and “Back to the Future” actor for the fall of 2013.

The show will feature Fox as a husband and father of three from New York City dealing with family, career, and challenges including the degenerative nervous system disorder, Parkinson’s disease.

“He (Fox) is utterly relatable, optimistic, and in a class by himself, and I have no doubt that the character he will create – and the vivid family characters surrounding him – will be both instantly recognizable and hilarious,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement.

Fox, 51, made his name in the 1980s TV comedy “Family Ties” and as teen adventurer Marty McFly in the “Back to the Future” movie franchise.

He later starred in TV political comedy “Spin City,” winning multiple acting awards, but semi-retired from acting in 2000 as his symptoms of Parkinson’s worsened and he focused his efforts on research for a cure.

In recent years, the Canadian actor has done voice-over work for movies like “Stuart Little” and has guest starred in TV shows like the comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and legal drama “The Good Wife.”

Filming for the new sitcom will begin this year, with casting for other roles to be announced later, NBC said.

The Bachelor: Not Really Fond of Black People?

In 23 seasons there has NOT been a black bachelor or bachelorette. Have you ever noticed this? The very popular show has been on air for 10 years and not one African American.

On Wednesday, two African-American men, Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson, filed a federal lawsuit in Nashville against ABC and the “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.

The lawsuit claims the shows engaged in patterns of racial discrimination because certain ethnic groups were blocked from having the chance to participate in leading roles. These are just two of the few that feel  they have not had their fare shot.

The show has been embarrassingly white. We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this.

Perhaps there is some truth in that claim….eh?
