jogging news - first real push - 2017 seven miles...



wow, that was hard, and what with 150,000+ steps already on my legs from last week's family walking holiday in Minehead... and it's a new record.

FIFTY THREE MINUTES, for my usual seven miles course around west Oxford's rolling hills. Warmed up with half an hour's yoga. Weather was perfect, sun breaking through light cloud. No wind.  No food since yesterday evening. One cup of coffee for upper's sake. Glass of water.

:)

art - Jeff Faust - floating bowls

another day, another artist, and yes I realise it's not the bowls that are floating...

delicious (and iconic) imagery from classy Californian artist, Jeff Faust:

art - Troy Brooks - femme fataliste

yeah, that's me indulging in blatant public Franglais, so what e-fascist-istas...

I suspect Canadian figurative artist Troy Brooks knows what I mean when I (try to) invent phrases like femme fataliste... to describe his astonishing and fascinating and haunting oils on canvas.

Happy Easter - Roman Empire Jesus - Egyptian Old Testament Moses



the following video explores the Flavian Christ AD 72 i.e. just after the crushing of the Jewish Rebellion in Jerusalem.

Key to the story, and missing from the following video, see following link, "Who was it whom Titus Flavius Josephus, 1st century Roman chronicler born Joseph ben Matityahu, had taken down from the crucifixion cross post-AD 72 Jerusalem-rebellion?" could it really have been King Izas Manu of Edessa? Vatican, open the doors of the (borrowed) Library of Alexandria and show your true Egypto-christian heritage.

Forty more years, or forty more days and nights, until the paying world awakens to the warrior game, the corporate fakery, the godmatic lie?





ADDITIONAL MATERIAL: and here's a scholarly examination of the Roman scribe Flavius Josephus...

Ancient Time Lines - the Dark Ages - did we just lose 1,000 years of Human History?

2-wit 2-who

I don't know, it's just that 'they keep talking about the paucity of written documentation during the period of the 5th to the 15th century AD', and it got me thinking...

DID WE JUST LOSE 1,000 YEARS OF HUMAN HISTORY?

"Poppy cock," you're probably spitting out your Sunday morning cornflakes.

But think about it, and it's not like it hasn't happened before:
a) recent recalculations i.e. missing periods, in the Ancient Egyptian timeline where whole dynasties have been placed in the wrong order or removed completely because of some blasé historical agenda.

b) recent recalculations i.e. missing periods, in the Jesus timeline where the ages of the relevant events appear 32 years earlier than they should because of some blasé historical agenda.
c) recent recalculations i.e. missing periods, in the period of history we call The Dark Ages because of some blasé historical agenda.

Now, this isn't a new idea. There's something called the Phantom Time Hypothesis which concerns itself almost specifically with the 5th to the 15th century AD.

Remember, "History is Written by the Victors," but let's not be overly naive about this, history is rarely written in real-time. Take the Jesus story itself... the Gospels weren't written at the time of the Man's Crusade. There are no written logs glowing, "Went to a Jesus gig today, man that preacher rocked, I wonder if he'll be remembered as the best prophet in times to come," etc. Contemporary reviews of the actions of the man don't exist in the Historical Records either. Jesus, like the Dark Ages, wasn't chronicled. Didn't actually exist.

Until later, a long time later; when the stories started to appear: when the web of the legend spins. The Garden of Eden. The Ancient Greek Gods of War and Love. The Dinosaurs.

Yes, dinosaurs existed millions of years ago, right? If you can form a(n Electric Universe) mountain range in a few molten seconds... If you can increase a planet's gravity by decoupling it from one stellar host to another... If you can project backwards a timeline that never existed...

Then anything is possible, surely?

How old is this planet, and what role do we really have upon it?

Mike Philbin art - Introversions and Dichotomies 2017 - metallic paint gold and silver series

my gold/silver metallic paints eventually arrived direct from the paint manufacturer and, while the sun was out, I did some more pair paintings on stretched canvas.

The first one's a repaint with a lovely textured underpainting, as you can see...

2 x 100 cm by 30cm


The second one's a new paint on virgin canvas...

2 x 50 cm by 50 cm

Pen art - Helena Hauss - Paris, France

yes, there are more-photorealist ball point pen artists out there, I've seen a lot of them, but this one really caught my attention.

witness the AMAZING penmanship of biro artist Helena Hauss from Paris, France.


I mean, just stunning work.

Ridley Scott - Covenant poster - Aliens vs Engineers



"You want aliens, I'll give you aliens," that's what Ridley Scott said in response to the dearth of Giger material in his so-called prequel to his classic Alien (1979) i.e. Prometheus (2012).

And boy has he given us aliens (vs engineers) in this new poster for Alien:Covenant.


WEEK LATER UPDATE: recently shown secret footage at CinemaCon by Fox of Alien:Covenant suggests that this above image might actually be how one of the crucial scenes of the film might look... and that makes me VERY EXCITABLE.

Empire magazine just dropped an enormous A:C bombshell in the form of several images allegedly taken from the aforementioned CinemaCon footage... and it's chocks away old chap. Or rather, "Urns away!"

Scarlett Johannsen - Ghost in the Shell - first five minutes clip

MovieLad crop'd
I'm not sure if this is chronologically the 'first five minutes' of the new live-action Scar-Jo vehicle i.e. Ghost in the Shell, but I still want to see this movie for myself ... I want to make up my own mind about a celluloid/digital creation or re-creation/re-imagining of a classic slice of Manga-land ... and not listen to a load of politically-motivated whitewash-naysayers just because-Oblama because-Shillery because-Trumpage...

One day, they'll remake my favourite-of-all manga "Akira" in this physical-enhance-man'd manner... and this'll be one uber-happy northern lad who never grew old. :)


Electric Universe - The Big Gravity Problem - dinosaurs too heavy for today's gravity value



...well, that's torn it.

Electric Universe proponents have finally come out and made it public, "Dinosaur muscles and dinosaur bones, and cartilege and sinew, can not support the immense weight of these ancient giants in today's gravity," this means that (maybe more recently than we care to admit now) dinosaurs lived on a version of Earth that had a much lower gravity value.

EU's evidence suggests that there was recently a time in Earth's history when it existed inside the life-giving plasma sheath of a brown dwarf star (they choose the Solar System-invader Saturn based on its prevalence in mythic written/carved history) and would therefore have had less gravity either due to physical size which then had catastrophic amounts of matter added to it in a proto-Saturnian flare up or due to extra electro-magnetic effect on Earth's atomic-gravity conditions within proto-Saturn's plasma sheath.

Either way, "Let the debate begin," again ... we have to know if Electric Universe is the Great Awakening all the spiritually-minded prophets have been waiting for?




WEEKS LATER UPDATE: oh, okay, so here's the official follow-up to the above youtube... and (if the gravity of the Earth increased recently due to its electric decoupling from the proto-Saturnian red-dwarf intrusion into Sol-space) then maybe the dinosaurs were Gravity Killed recently too.
