Canada's beloved astronaut Chris Hadfield, known by millions for his funny tweets, his lively sense of humour and 'down-to-earth' attitude from on high in the ISS, has made the first ever music video in space. David Bowie's iconic 'Space Oddity', shot from the International Space Station, is the world's first and only music video shot in space...amazing!
It's been a year since the St. Petersburgh UFO sightings that shocked the world, but it appears that "they" are back. If you recall this author's report last April:
"St. Petersburg, Russia, and the city is still abuzz after a peaceful invasion of the skies on April 9, 10 and 11 was witnessed by multiple citizens. Numerous videos have surfaced, showing what appeared to be an enormous mothership, which could be seen floating above the city at night. Brightly lit orbs joined the ship, or were seen breaking off from it, and floating across the skies. This phenomenon continued for three days and three nights.
The event is destined to go down in history as one of the most important and significant sightings of the century, not only because of the clarity and duration of these sightings, but also because of the numerous witnesses and videotapes of the event."
Now stunning video shot April 29, 2012, has emerged on YouTube that shows five minutes worth of fascinating footage of what appears to be an authentic UFO hovering over a hilltop in Russia.
Windrunner's Tale: Turtle Island and the Great Black Snake - Chapter One - The Prophesy of the Rainbow Warriors
From the distant hill Windrunner could see the plume of thick black smoke coming from the tarnished fields. Keeping low, he ran towards them, his moccasin-clad feet skillfully traversing the forest floor. He was, after all, an 'Indian' he thought, with a wry chuckle. If he couldn't sneak up on a bulldozer, then what the hell kind of native was he?
Up at the top of the hill he peered down at the scene below. A large convoy of trucks were parked in a row, each one carrying enormous black pipes...pipes for the pipeline that was already being built, meant to one day soon snake across the entire breadth and width of Turtle Island, carrying the thick, corrosive black sludge that would one day be made into oil.
Tonight at eight o'clock EST we turned off all the lights in the house, even going so far as to unplug the TV, and grabbing our hand drums and tambourines off the wall, we headed over to next door neighbour Gary's house. There in the backyard, at the end of the garden, his fire pit was glowing and crackling with a roaring fire, while the steady sound of drums could be heard from his CD player.
Gary wore his First Nations jacket and a cowboy hat. He practically lived at the fire pit at the end of his garden, where he had built a 'man cave' out of old pieces of wood and plywood. Ever since his heart attack Gary says he can't sleep indoors. On all but the coldest nights he sleeps in the cabin, where a little space heater and the heat from his nightly fires keeps him toasty warm.
Inside his sleeping bag he says he doesn't feel the cold too much. His wife, inside the house in their warm modern home, has long since given up on trying to get him to come inside. He just likes it better out at the little cabin, where he can sit by the fire and watch the night sky and listen to his songs, he explains. And he can't breathe inside the house...ever since the heart attack he can't seem to breathe so well when he tries to sleep inside.
An Ontario Court ordered the Harper Government to hand over all documents and records pertaining to the First Nations and Native Residential Schools to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Wednesday.
Despite the Canadian Government's refusal to provide those documents housed in Library and Archives Canada, the Honourable Justice Stephen Gouge stated that 'the obligation for the Goverment to provide the materials is clear.'
A stunning image of the mystical Machu Picchu, composed of nearly two thousand different shots taken over a period of 1.5 hours has been compiled to give an incredible sense of 'being there' for those of you who have always wanted to go but have never quite made it.
The picture, which was taken in 'Gigapan' by photographer Jeff Cramer, was taken at the end of the dry season “just before the clouds rolled in.”
You can see the pic here:
Canadians from coast to coast have donned their battle toques, grabbed their drumsticks and taken to the streets to stand beside their First Nations brethren in what is becoming a sweeping social movement that has started a fire in the hearts (and under the butts) of this normally passive and easygoing nation.
As the populace of Canada has slowly begun to awaken in horror to the bizarre, irresponsible and dangerous policies of creepily narcissistic Prime Minister Stephen Harper, most Canadians looked askance to each other in terms of how to fight this avalanche of bad news.
From omnibus bills of gargantuan length and size aimed at sweeping in massive, undisputed reforms that serve only the greed of oil companies, to the dismantling of Canada's once internationally acclaimed scientific outposts and firing of its world-class scientists, the people of Canada have stood and watched with their mouths literally hanging open in shock for long enough.
Occupy relief activists emerge as reluctant heroes in Sandy aftermath: They boldly go where no FEMA personnel dare going
All those nights camping in Zucotti Park appear to have paid off - bigtime - for Occupy activists who are possibly not only the most well prepared, but also the most well-fed and cheerful New Yorkers in town following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
In a press release as of November 1, MoRUS shared "The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) is using one of its exhibits to provide the community with free cell phone charging. Working with environmental group Times Up, MoRUS has set up Occupy Wall Street bike generators on Avenue C between 9th and 10th Street. For the past two days, volunteer riders have been pedaling as crowds of people gather to charge up their cell phones.
For many people, this has been the first time they've been able to contact loved ones after Hurricane Sandy hit earlier this week. Meanwhile, C-Squat, the squat which houses MoRUS, has set up a street-side barbecue. They have been accepting donations and providing the community with free food."
Just a little something to make you smile from the fairies and me...This is a song I wrote about the fairies calling us to the woods at night to join in their fairy circle dance - inspired by my favourite Shakespeare play A Midsummer Night's Dream we recorded the song in my garage in 2003 with Billy Olster from the Canadian band Frozen Ghost doing all the amazing guitar and musical arrangement.
That is me singing lead and daughter Emily was only 8 singing those sweet fairy vocal backups.
We later used the song for the ballroom scene in a Pantomine version of Cinderella and have included a short clip with the link.
To hear the full version click on the bottom link and it will automatically play for you on the website for The Backyard Drama Club.
Enjoy! ...Oh yes and the fairies have a message - they want to remind us to dance in the moonlight more often!!!
'Chain of Daisies'
"Come weave a chain of daisies love,
The rumors have been whispered for years that the mummy of an extraterrestrial had been found in Egypt, nestled in a burial chamber beside a great Pharoh. Now, more evidence of the mummy's possible existence have been reported on Facebook, along with this compelling photo.
I have included the accompanying text exactly as it was translated from Egyptian. I have not edited the text, nor changed a word, as it has a ring of truth to it just "as is." You be the judge. Is this an elaborate hoax? Or is it possible that there were visitors to Earth that could have shaped the Egyptian culture, even played a part in it? Did this race of ET visitors build the pyramids - a feat we cannot recreate to this day?
The description of the photo, leaked by an anonymous source at the Egyptian Anitiquities Department, reads:
NASA cameras have captured hundreds of unexplained images as well as compelling film footage of UFOs above the Earth. These images of swift moving objects, hovering orbs and even a space battle, are proof of the existence of ET visitors to Earth, claim UFO enthusiasts .
NASA's official stance on the incident, however is that these objects are merely dust floating around in space. The speculation continues to fly regarding these fascinating videos, many of which were captured by the International Space Station and NASA satellites orbiting Earth.
A stunning video, just released by YouTube user StephenHannardADGUK, puts many of these now famous sightings together with an eerie but dramatic soundtrack:
I just had to write this to let you know what amazing energies are coming in right now - two incredibly wonderful things just happened to people I know - and I just felt a shift in the grid - did anyone else feel that in the last hour?
After a day of rain yesterday, the morning has slowly gone from hazy to sunny, and outside my porch door the birds are actually calling to me to come to the garden. All the flowers are bursting with colour and blooms and dewdrops are glistening in the sunlight.
But it is the news that is coming in from people that is astounding - huge relief after worry and strife. Has a cloud larger than these rainclouds just been lifted?
It sure feels that way!
oh and it's 11:11 a.m. right now as I go to hit save! wow!
more love and light!
Pyramids have been discovered in the Antarctic, according to a news article on Scienceray.com. A team of 8 explorers from America and Europe claim to have found evidence of three man made pyramids 'peaking' through the melting ice, states the author:
"Can it be possible that Antarctica was once warm enough in the recent past to actually have had an ancient civilization living there? And even more perplexing is the question of if an advanced culture did develop there, are there any structures still remaining that are buried underneath the ice? Amazingly a team of researchers is making the claim that they have found evidence of several ancient pyramids on the ice covered continent of Antarctica.
So far, the team has not released much information on their discovery although a few pictures have been leaked on the internet recently. I will let you be the judge on if these pictures truly display artificial pyramids or just the rocky tops of mountains but the images are intriguing and definitely warrant further research in my opinion. Three of the images are shown below.
Triangle UFOs over British skies 'pose no threat,' states minister, but sightings continue to skyrocket
A stunning UFO sighting was captured in the skies over England by passers-by walking on the banks of the River Thames, as published by silverstreemz on You Tube.
The video, although short, clearly shows three lights in the sky which form a triangle.
The lights then zoom towards each other, where they meet in the center.
The lights then appear to become one object, followed by a bright flash, and the light zooms off away from the cameraman.
Here is the video description:
Filmed from across the River Thames as the sun was setting, there is more footage of the sky that evening above the power station and the lights that appeared , you will see look out on YT"
We sat under the blue moon,
In the night garden.
A breeze as soft as the lake water
Stroked us like silk,
Soft as the wings of a fairy,
Sweet as the breath of an angel,
And the moonlight washed away our sorrows,
Chased away our fears,
Bathed away the pain of the past,
Whilst we talked of many things...
