Super Inflation Coming

The CEO of Walmart is warning us that we are about to be hit by major inflation in the coming months.  Prices of goods are about to skyrocket.  Food, clothing, supplies.  You may no longer be able to afford them.   Include spending $5.00 per gallon for gas and you may be in trouble.

You need to prepare now.  Sell your extra junk now while people are buying and buy supplies because you are going to need them.   Save your money.  The life of your family are more important than beer and cigarettes.    Don’t say you haven’t been warned.

What kind of monster am I?

Yesterday we got word that a co-worker who was out with brain cancer passed away.  I felt nothing.  Today the passed around a sympathy card for his family.  I felt nothing.  Have I become some kind of psychopath?   Other than my mother, I’m not sure I will even feel sad if any of the rest of my family dies.  Perhaps because they are virtually strangers?  How close does a person have to be for one to care whether they live or die?  I don’t suppose this is normal.  At least not by current human standards.  Maybe I’m not human.  That’s possible because I never have fit in with the humans.

What am I? Will I ever know?

Time reaching maximum speed

Another example that proves the fact that time is nearing the end is the change in temporal velocity. Like water circling the drain of your kitchen sink, time speeds up as it spirals like a funnel towards the center of the drain.

You can’t deny how fast time has been going lately.  Look far back in to the past. Say around the 1800s.  Time went slowly.  Almost painfully slow as the little particle we live on was far from the drain. Through the early 1900s time sped up.  The 20s, the 40s, the 50s, the 60s.  Each decade noticeably faster than the previous one.  The 70s and 80s, much faster.  The 90s, went by so fast I don’t remember them.  The 2000’s, gone in a blink.  We’re already in the second decade of the 21st century.

The whole winter flew by in a single month.  Last week it was January.  This week it is March.  Yesterday it was the beginning of March. Today it is already the last week.  Holy shit!

We are down the funnel and ready to drop into the drain.  I’m ready.  I can’t take this pace anymore.  I wonder if we come spewing out the other side of the temporal whirlpool or we just end up down the drain and at the treatment plant to be recycled.  Will we be crushed into atoms like a space ship into a black hole?   It has been a hell of a ride but I’m ready for it to end.

Wishing for Armageddon

Monotony and boredom are beginning to push me over the hill for the slide into the valley of depression.  I am so deep in my rut that even a standard vacation can’t pull me out for very long.

I am totally not enjoying my job.  I am either bored stiff or doing something boring and pointless.  With an open mind I thought about getting another job but was quickly stopped by the fact that I don’t want another job.   Certainly not because I like the one I have but because I just don’t want to work anymore.  I’ve been working for 24 years and I’m tired.  I’m deathly tired.

One of my favorite radio shows is Coast to Coast AM.  It’s comes on from midnight to 4am.  I set my computer to record it and I listen at better times.  One of the popular subjects is the end of the world.  You can’t deny that it sure looks like it is coming.  Whether it comes in 2012 or ever at all is debatable.  I find myself hoping that it actually ends in 2012.  Not just a passing wish but with all my heart.  So much that I’m going to be seriously disappointed if 2013 comes and we are still here.

in 2013 I will be 45.  An age I never expected to reach.  If I make it that far and the world still exists I am going to make a serious change.  I am going to chuck it all and start fresh.  Of course the way I feel today I may be doing that much sooner.  2013 is the deadline.

Starting over is a lot of work.  I would really prefer that the earth explodes soon.  I’m going to continue wishing for that.  Armageddon?  Yes, please.

 

 

Quick Movie Review – Paul

Today I went to see the movie, Paul.   It’s about an alien who has been locked up by the government since the 40s.  He escapes and is assisted by two English guys on a trip to ComiCon.

I had mixed feelings about spending money on this film but decided to go anyway because I liked the premise.   It is basically a comic/action film.  I think I only laughed at one point.  The simple minded people behind me laughed quite a bit.  Even though it was only moderately funny, I still enjoyed it.  There was a ton of unnecessary cursing and innuendo so it is probably not a good movie for the kiddies.  It will also probably not be popular with the super conservative christians.

I don’t think I will be buying the DVD when it comes out but I’m not sorry for spending the $7.50 for a matinée showing.   I enjoyed it and it was better than sitting around at work.

Secret of NIMH on Blu-Ray!

YAY!   They FINALLY released The Secret of NIMH on Blu-Ray!   I’ve been aching for this release for so many decades.

It was first on VHS then DVD for so long.  The artwork in this animated movie is very well done and I look forward to seeing it now in it’s high definition glory. The Secret of NIMH has always been one of my favorite animated movies.  I first read the book “Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh” back in the late 70s and fell in love with the premise and characters.

A few years ago Disney created a direct to video release of The Secret of NIMH 2 – Timmy to the Rescue which was an abomination.  It would be awesome if they would delete this movie from history and remake it properly.

If you enjoy this book and/or movie then you can read a sequel, “Racso and the Rats of NIMH“.   Not as good but OK.  Also lots of great Fan Fiction that rivals the original book.

What are you waiting for?  Get it!
