Politics – do we really care? Re-blogged from Meeka’s Mind

Originally posted on Meeka's Mind:
I’ve always had a problem with ‘-isms’ – communism, socialism, facism, capitalism, republicanism, you name it – because they all seem to miss the point about people. Homo Sapiens doesn’t give a flying fruit bat about politics until things go wrong. I was a kid in the late Menzies era of Australia [1949-1966], and I remember hearing some adults… Continue reading Politics – do we really care? Re-blogged from Meeka’s Mind

Do We Even Want to be Entertained? ReBlogged, Legends of Windemere

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI1ylg4GKv8 So, I’ve been wondering this for a while now.  I wasn’t sure how to write this up either and have gone through it in my head many times.  Then I stumbled onto this part from a Suicide Squad review: “In my sensible critical opinion, Suicide Squad wasn’t a complete disaster, but inexcusably mediocre. To be fair, the audience I saw… Continue reading Do We Even Want to be Entertained? ReBlogged, Legends of Windemere

If Only This Had Been A Rare Face, Re-blogged from “Weirdly Wired.”

Originally posted on Erratic Expeditions:
As Mediterranean waves evaded a violent shore, A frail face lay in peace, at the confluence of war. Birds swam seeking refuge in boatloads, A few sank, like an island full of toads. Terror, tears, shock, and blank concern, How did the world allow its people to burn? Passionate vows, pious pleas overflew worldwide, An audacious hope of morality bona fide. Sadly,… Continue reading If Only This Had Been A Rare Face, Re-blogged from “Weirdly Wired.”

Incubus, The Terrible

Originally posted on Poems:
Startled, I often rise up from sleep, with my limbs trembling and sweat drenched but my throat turned too sore and dry, choked as if by the soot of fear, in the throes of a tragic dream, a dreadful and haunting nightmare, borne by past follies or tomorrow’s loss, too pale and numb and shaken to my core!      The former… Continue reading Incubus, The Terrible

Sundog and Unusual Clouds RE-Blogged from I Read Encyclopedias…

Originally posted on I Read Encyclopedias for Fun:
Yesterday, I was able to see a great phenomenon known as a sundog. These things are part of a halo around the sun and created by hexagonal ice crystals in the air, usually with cirrus clouds. Well, there were plenty of cirrus clouds yesterday. This sundog that I saw was rainbow coloured, though it didn’t turn out… Continue reading Sundog and Unusual Clouds RE-Blogged from I Read Encyclopedias…

Watch those spectators sitting behind debate stars (re-blogged)

Some of the most interesting fans, or supporters, or spectators–whatever you call them–are the people sitting in the stands directly behind the speaker’s podium at televised speeches. A case in point is the woman who ended up more or less trapped at a Donald Trump rally recently.  She happened to be black…which she said was perhaps not at all coincidental…and she was escorted to the … Continue reading Watch those spectators sitting behind debate stars (re-blogged)
