Cheeto-in-Charge on UFOs

. Recently George Stephanopoulos asked the POTUS if  he “had heard of any reports of extraterrestrial life:” Cheeto-in-Charge responded thusly:

“I think our great pilots would know,” he said. “And some of them see things a little bit different from the past. We’re watching, and you’ll be the first to know.”

More here. 

Really, nothing to say here about this. I mean . . . we just can’t . . . it simply is too damn crazy.

Sexy Lesbian UFO Spy Stuff

I’m not going to review Project Bluebook, (not much) because I only saw the first two episodes. I enjoyed ACTOR’S NAME and the production is very good, but I’m with the camp who are upset over the inaccuracies. They seem to be so . . . intentional. 

One thing that has me curious, is the Russian lesbian spy angle. Further attempts by the Russians to get at  U.S. flying saucer secrets  include a red-lipsticked blonde lesbian spy trying to seduce innocent Mrs. Hynek.

Are we serious here! Straight out of 1950s pulp fiction.  As if UFOs, government conspiracies, heavy handed thugs, looming monsters, and MIB aren’t enough, throw in a femme fatale and lesbian luring the innocent.

I’m not sure what the point here is with that. Pure exploitive titilation for its own sake I guess.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, by the way. Except it isn’t accurate, in the context of Hynek. Why present this story with so much crap to muddle things? Were the producers worried the culture is bored with UFOs and needed more? Why the Flatwoods Monster as mutant tree instead of what was actually reported? And so on.

 

Cartoons From the Past

Clearing off a few shelves to make room for more books and vinyl (Santa brought us a new turntable) I came across a folder of cartoons I did decades ago. Just silly things. I did a few of a character I came up with; Pongo, the Neurotic Dog. (The quality is awful, I know, not much I can do with a built in Mac camera.)

I don’t remember if I was aware of it at the time, but “Pongo sees his first UFO” is dated 1954, the year I was born. And a lifetime of UFO and related experiences ever since.

Another silly one, about the great Cosmic nature of it all:

Moon in Gemini, never a good thing for us Pisces:

And finally, beware the Radio Active Cows. Maybe that’s why the aliens are abducting them.

“As Ancient Astronaut Theorists Believe… “

Well, as an “ancient astronaut theorist” fan, I take exception.

The History channel’s Ancient Aliens program loves to invoke variations of the following:

“As Ancient Alien theorists believe…” as if all of us who accept that aliens from literal eons ago planted us here, or, messed with us, or, … well, there are endless possibilities. The point is, yes, aliens, as well as ultra-terrestrials and  — who knows what all non-human else —  had their way with us. This belief does not mean that I accept every answer/theory/opinion/belief put forth by the pundits on Ancient Aliens.

Some of those pundits are thoughtful, and simply offering up ideas and speculations. Others are intoning theories as facts. And, one of my personal pet peeves in all aspects of my life — regardless of the hat I may be wearing at the time —  being included in something I had no say in. As in, for example, work. “Well, we agree that staff should, from now on…”  Excuse me, “we?”  I don’t recall being asked, and I certainly don’t fucking agree. Passive aggressive manipulative tactic, that.

So, while I do believe the aliens have been around, and in fact, responsible, for the us that is now us, I also don’t believe every damn theory that comes along. And while aliens, as in from outer space, literal ETs, there are also entities about and afoot that are from right here. Within earth, parallel to us, co-existing in some sort of near-by dimension, and outer space has nothing to do with it. The two (or three or eleventh-hundred) exist at the same time, all playing their particular game.

 

Ancient Aliens: Mystery at Rudloe Manor

Little update: After posting this, saw on Facebook from friend and UFO scholar Scott Santa, that Ancient Aliens didn’t discover this — the existence of Rudloe Manor has been known for a long time. Timothy Good, author of Above Top Secret, addressed this years ago. A book that I’ve read, of course, but many years ago, and clearly, forgot all about it.  Still, it was a good episode for those who have not read Good’s book, or, who simply suffer from occasional bouts of senior-moment brain.

Last night’s episode of Ancient Aliens:The Mystery of Rudloe Manor was pretty good. Nice to see an Ancient Aliens where there wasn’t a rehashing of the already rehashed ‘aliens from millions of years ago had seeded us’ … not that I don’t believe that, I do, (yes, I do) (in part) but enough already.

Refreshing and surprising. I hadn’t known of the underground chambers in Wiltshire, England at Rudloe Manor. From the Ancient Aliens site, a bit from the blurb:

In the southwest corner of the Wiltshire, England countryside lies the mysterious structure known as Rudloe Manor. On the surface, it appears to be nothing more than a quaint English manor house, but researchers have argued for years that it has been the epicenter of British research into UFOs since World War II. British Ministry of Defence (MOD) insiders claim that an astounding 2.2 million square feet of vast caverns divided into many smaller chambers lie buried underneath Rudloe Manor (Ancient Aliens)

Watching the program last night, it seemed to me a safe theory to suggest that crop circles are the work of some shadowy black ops faction. Not aliens, not earth fairies, not Doug and Dave. Not even mating hedgehogs. Many disagree with me on this including many a UFO researcher I respect. But I am still convinced that some governments — certainly including our own — have been manipulating technologies and energies of non-human origin for their own agendas.
