Musing On Monday

December 31, 2012



Well… here we are then.

December 31st, 2012.

The final day of the Apocalypse.



Which, according to most, was nonsense.

However, the word apocalypse means “revelation” & in these final moments of 2012 I happen to have 1.

& that is that for all intends & purposes this post is the final update.



Now, originally I wanted to include the regular “look-back” at that which was blogged about this past year.

But, I simply ran out of time.

There just isn’t enough of 2012 left to finish it, which is not only a revelation but also a… “disaster” of sorts.



So, I guess in a way the Apocalypse managed to get me in the end.

Which pretty much sucks, as I didn’t want to end it this way.

…yet, it somehow fits with the whole year’s theme.



Of course, I have my doubts about stopping & this has only added fuel to that fire.

However, continuing would kinda sorta feel like… writing beyond the last page of a novel or filming past the last scene of a movie.

Or, to put it in other terms… what happens next ?

Mu On Mo #52 – Exordium & Terminus

December 24, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Yes, coming to you (every ?) Monday throughout the entirety of 2012 (with some co-operation from YouTube) will be some familiar songs.

While others, whether because of the relative unknownness of the artist or possibly your musical tastes, will be a new experience.

…51 weeks ago, that’s how it all started but now that’s all about to end.



Hello there & welcome to the last week of this year long Mu On Mo.

Yeah, too bad but there’s just no more weeks left in 2012.

But for 51 straight weeks, it did come to you on each & every monday, which is something I was never sure of.



Because while not typical for its entirety, there were a lot of mondays where I just had no idea what to do next.

Looking back, it’s clear there’s 2 Mu On Mo’s.

There’s the 1st part which was planned & revolved around monthly themes & then there’s the 2nd part, which was more personal on an emotional level & could change a lot from week to week.



Now, the monthly themes weren’t dropped in favour of this other more spontaneous approach.

For better or worse, that’s just how it developed along the way.

Anyhoo, the end…



The first ever Mu On Mo had a song which symbolized the start of the musical journey by going up in a balloon.

With that journey nearly at an end, it’s only fitting it should end in a place which lies not in the sky & fits with the apocalyptic theme.

In fact, check out last week’s entry’s title for a major HINT of this week’s song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“You are fantastic!”






I know that comment was aimed at the person singing in the music vid but you know what ?

For pulling this off & a lot more, I am fantastic !

& so was Mu On Mo…













From 2012 itself, that was Taylor Ferrera – I Wanna Go To Hell!.

Now, this is where I end with “See you another time for more Music On Monday ? …that’s if we’re still around.” but this being the actual end… well, I dunno if that song or any of the past 51 songs for that matter ever soothed a single soul but there you go & thanks to everyone who suggested songs !

Ladies & gentlemen, Music On Monday.


DOOMSDAY IS HERE !!!!!!!!!!

December 21, 2012






Kylie Says No To The Apocalypse






Riiight.

What do you know, Oz midget ?

You’re only an expert in sashaying around in skimpy tight clothes while aging anything but gracefully.



Anyhoo…

I’ve eaten delicious junk, I’ve sent out my X-Mas cards & I’ve paid all my bills.

Mayan Apocalypse… I’m [censored] ready for you ! 😈


Mu On Mo #51 – Highway To Hell

December 17, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Snow, presents, decorations.

All ways to tell the most wonderful time of the year is near.

Except here.



Hello & welcome to this penultimate Mu On Mo.

My mom &… her husband have another tradition.

Every year around this time they have an awful fight.



It can even involve the local law inforcement but that’s only on very special occasions.

Very recently, I had the good fortune to witness a lil’ bit of their yearly drama.

Afterwards, when… her husband had left, she said the folowing sentence…



“God, if you really exists, perform a miracle & see to it this bastard never returns !”

This & their recurring love & understanding are quite funny, especially around this this time of the year, as they both see themselves as Christians.

Which reminds me of a song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“OMG i just adore potatoes”






I know, right ? 😀

Roasted, mashed, boile …wait what ?

Anyhoo, enjoy this apt song…













For all dysfunctional yet devout birds of a feather, that was Pet Shop Boys – It’s A Sin.

See you 1 more time for a lil’ more Music On Monday ?

…that’s if we’re still around after December 21st O_O


Mu On Mo #50 – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

December 10, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Sometime ago, I was on this train.

& there, sitting in front of me, was another person.

Who asked me a question.



“What topics will your blog deal with in the new year ?”

The answer to that, of course, is… none.

Apocalypse.



Buuuttttt, if I had to guess I suppose there would’ve been more.

Yes, both more of the same & more new stuff too.

Perhaps even Lou Ferrigno pics.



Still amazes me so many people (all looking for his pics) end up here where there are none to find.

I wonder, could they all be a lil’ …you-know-what ??? O_O

Hm, that reminds me of a fun song which got the following comment on YouTube…





“Great, and sadly overlooked song, from the Seventies….Very clever…What would the neighbors think?? Great line…”






2 guys doing stuff together.

What WOULD the neighbours think ?

Enjoy, you know you want to…













Fixing him a drink, that was Jim Stafford – My Girl Bill.

Tidings Of Discomfort & Non-Joy

December 9, 2012



Now, some people (still) doubt the Apocalypse will happen.

Well, those people just aren’t paying attention to the obvious signs.

Like brand new spam mail for example that refers to the Academy Awards…






Spam Signs of The Apocalypse






Surely, when total rats like spammers (who don’t give a crap about anything or anyone except themselves) suddenly don’t wanna refer to 2012, something must be seriously seriously amiss ?


Mu On Mo #49 – The Beginning Of The End

December 3, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Here we are then.

December 2012.

The Apocalypse.



Hello & welcome to 1 of the final remaining mondays.

I’m not quite sure yet how I feel about it all ending, really.

However, like with some previous months, I’d like there to be a theme for this last 1, namely…



Fun.

As long as I like it, anything goes.

Today a fun song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“Think if they could make music like this these days. People would be happier I think. You feel good when you listen to this.”






I hope so.

…but having gotten to know Humanity through this web log these last few years, they’d probably brand it “gay”, “socialist” or “Muslim”.

There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of people, glad it’s almost over…













Rama lama ding dong forever, that was Barry Mann – Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp, Bomp, Bomp).

Mu On Mo #39 – Now It’s Time To Say Good Night

September 24, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



…so, that bad time I went through ?

Going by feelings …still sorta kinda here.

It’s not around as often as before but still intense when it is.



I coped by lots & lots of diversion.

I coped by just letting it be.

I coped by friends.



It was hard to tell them, especially since reactions of total strangers (yes, I bothered those too), while diverse, weren’t all very positive.

Going by what most such others told me, it’s “creepy”, “weird”, “gay”, “pervy”, “worrying”, etc etc etc.

Being judged by other people’s standards when you’re emotionally drowning = not a big help.



Anyhoo, I got by with a lil’ help from my friends.

& since this whole thing’s been (directly & indirectly) about things like friendship & feelings of, I figured I’d use that today & thus end September with a certain song.

A song that not only reflects on such themes but also a song that marks the 4th part of a certain unofficial long running Mu On Mo theme (see Mu On Mu #02, #09 & #27) & a song that got the following (partial) comment on YouTube…





“…but one thing you can’t judge is love…”






I wish that were true, as lots of people have done just that throughout history.

Which is weird cuz love (whether platonic or romantic), is something we all want & all you need.

Enjoy…













From 2003, that was Ringo Starr – Never Without You.

Chicken: “BOO !”

April 19, 2012



Holy crap !

It’s an eggless chicken, I tells ya !

EGGLESS !!!



Oooooh no.

No no no no no.

N-O period !



I know how this works by now.

A “weird” event happens & suddenly the Apocalypse is breaking news.

Then… instead of The End, nothing actually happens.



Well, it’s going to take a lil’ more effort for these “signs” to make me offer yet another virgi… uh, I meant write about it here.

&… errr, waste your time… yeah, that’s it.

*Phew !*

The Untouchables

April 6, 2012



I don’t know about you but to me it seems the first 3 months of 2012 were rather trying times to live through.

Aside from the usual gang of idiots making our daily lives miserable like intolerant fanatical terrorists & financially clueless politicians, there were also these… weird events like mutant spider-worms, floods, free mp3 sites suddenly asking for $$$, earthquakes, file hosting sites changing policy after Megaupload was shut down & more recently blue goo falling from the sky.

But thankfully, throughout all of these world-ending scenarios there’s still a few things we can all count on.



You know, things we can hold on to when Life gets bad.

Things that stay the same no matter what.

Things like Apple for example.



It wasn’t too long ago that Mr Apple himself, God Steve Jobs, died because of his own stubborn ways but the company & its wonderful line o’ products are still around.

Now, I’m not talking about the expensive iPod & its battery life, the costly iPhone & its reception or the pricey iPad & its Wi-Fi connection.

I mean products like Apple computers which unlike PCs are virus proof.



So, you can no doubt imagine my utter shock to a recent report which claims a Trojan has infected hundreds of thousands of Macs worldwide.

This shock reaction of mine soon turned into laughther, the ROTFLMAO kind to be precise.

& I’ll type you why just after I catch my breath here for a second.



*phew !*

See, I’m big enough of a person to admit when I’ve been had & in all fairness, it was a pretty good joke because for a moment there I thought it was real.

…wait a second, today’s the 6th of April, not the 1st !!!



B-but if the report is totally true… that means “2012” has struck (yet) again & none of us are truly safe anymore !

With news like that it sure seems like we’ve got less & less left to hold on to, it’s all doom & gloom during this apocalyptic year.

Hmmm… then again, take into account the annoying smugness of Apple users & how this probably won’t change their attitude towards Apple… yay, instant relief.

Mu On Mo #06 – (No) John & Lurve I/IV

February 6, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Hello again !

It’s February & that of course means…

…no, not the bitter stinging cold of Ol’ Man Winter but warmth !



Because gangrene or no gangrene in your frostbitten extremities, it’s nearly Valentine’s Day (again).

& so for the next few weeks, if all goes well, Mu On Mo will be following up on that theme of lil’ thing called Lurve.

With for example, the song that got the following YouTube comment…


“I love this song. This song represents the end of the world, the end of the sun, then the end of the universe. Quantum physics of the Big Bang theory.”



?

Well, I had no idea this song was sooo deep but hey, nothing but the best here on X-Mer’s New Atlantica Page.

Enjoy the end… uh, I mean enjoy the song…










From the 70’s with love, that was Bread – If.

See you another time for more Music On Monday.

…that’s if we’re still around.


Mu On Mo #05 – Heap O’ Naked

January 30, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Hello & goodbye !

As you may or may not know, this is “the end”.

Yes, that which Sir Monkey was wondering about last week can now be confirmed (or again, if you read my reply to the simian knight), this is indeed the final ever Mu On Mo…



…well, for January at least.

Next month. it’ll return as always (?) but won’t be dependent on the theme of decades like the 4 past songs or the 1 today.

Which brings us to my final ever choice… (for January).



After the 60s, 70s, 80s & 90s, it stands to reason that the 00s should follow but making this choice was even harder than last week’s.

Simply put, the latter half of the 90s & also right after, lead to the demise of House music, the (further) rise of Rap music & several one-hit wonders who tried to make it big by covering existing songs only to release them reworked as “cool” Dance music.

However, that’s not the worst that happened in Music Land…



No, for these years gave rise to the scantily clad female performer with blondes like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera & Jessica Simpson.

& also barely dressed brunettes like Shakira, Beyoncé Knowles, Rihanna, Nicole Scherzinger & even Mariah Carey v2.0 who changed from “awww sweet” to “ewww slut” overnight.

Anyhoo, no matter what hair colour they all have, clip after clip after clip showed how immensely… empowered (uh-huh) they all are now because nothing says rationally mature & emotionally secure quite like wearing next to nothing while moving provocatively in blatant sexual settings.



But THANKFULLY, there was also another kind of female performer during these 00s.

A type of female artist who during these dark times didn’t feel the need to compensate for the lack of any genuine talent take off her clothes at a whim during 1 of her songs.

Like, for example, the song that got the following YouTube comment…


“I wish we could buy this version. The piano she adds in it makes it sound so good.”



Yes, the following music number is not available as it was performed on TV & thus shows a lot more naked talent than naked skin.

& like so many others, I too liked it a whole lot more than the album version, so… I actually made myself a nice lil’ copy of this live performance.

Enjoy the song…










From the 00’s, that was Imogen Heap – First Train Home (Live).

See you another time for more Music On Monday.

…that’s if we’re still around.


Bun Dae Gi ? …no …No …NOOO !!!

January 4, 2012



…ok, where were we again ?

Ah yes, the Apocalypse !

“The End” as it were.



Unlike those crazy New Age folks, I’d been looking forward to this year as I’d never been in a proper Apocalypse before.

But 3 whole days into it, I have to say it’s been kinda uneventful.

& boring too.



Where’s the fire & the brimstone ?

Where’s the bloodcurdling screams of Jews, Muslims & Buddhists for choosing the wrong religion ??

In other words… where’s the event ?!?



Well, on this 4th day I’m glad to report that maybe, just maybe, things are finally moving ahead.

For it seems scientists have finally managed to make… stronger silk !

“What does that have to do with spicing these End Times up ???” you ask ?



Apparently, the way they got plain ol’ silk to become stronger was by taking silkworms…

…& then putting some spider genes into them.

Messing with nature, always a good idea !



In any case, now they seemingly have the stronger silk they always wanted for applications in medicine for example.

But not all is well, as danger has reared its ugly head.

For example, what would happen if 1 or more of these genetically modified monstrosities escaped from their lab environment ?



According to 1 scientist:


“It’s hard to see how a silkworm producing spider silk would have any advantage in nature.”



What kind of a world are we living in that a scientist is so shortsighted about that which is bound to happen sooner or later ?



Ladies & gentlemen, the future Apocalypse is right here, right now & it is part spider, part worm & all silk !

Unless Kim Jong-Un (for some strange reason) orders the massive hordes of starving North Koreans to eat these creatures like the delicacies they apparently are up there, we’re pretty much doomed !

You’ve been warned.

Buh-Bye Y’all

January 1, 2012



…whu-what ?

It’s here ? Already ???

Holy crap !



Ok, don’t blink now ’cause this is it !

That which we’ve all been dreading for so many years now…

…has arrived.



Yes, it’s thé Big One.

The end… of everything !

Quite soon, possibly right now as you’re reading this, Creation itself will begin to cease its existence.



For the coming of Nibiru is near…

Woe is us !

AAAAARGHHH !!!



There is hope though.

It will take courage but if you’re willing to go on a journey to your friendly neighbourhood New Age shop, you’ll find the answers to your salvation for only $19.99 there, as this is…

2012* (gasp)









*(Cue ominous music that chills your spine)


12 x 2011

December 25, 2011

During these past 12 months of 2011…



Following natural disasters like floods & earthquakes, the year began with people across the world becoming very worried there might be something seriously amiss when animals of various species suddenly started dying in huge numbers.

At the time, it was explained away as being “nothing to worry about” as it was all “perfectly normal”.

…isn’t that what the so-called experts always say to keep the public from panicking ?



But the deaths continued & after wondering how it affected life under the sea, a nice lil’ drawing of a certain mermaid & her 2 pals was put up.



& typing of spoooooky things…

A friendly musical suggestion for this here web log resulted in an odd …”coincidence” regarding artist Robert Palmer.



Then Disney Marvel decided to kill off 1 of it’s 4 members of superhero team The Fantastic Four.

After major hype, the actual result was kinda meh.

& several months later, just in time for X-Mas, he came back to life… no, not Jesus, the Human Torch.



Meanwhile, the good people of the Middle East began a massive series of protests against the Evil in their daily lives, resulting in the downfall of several dictators “politicians” which led to social changes in several countries.

& panicking too, as the West began losing their puppets 1 by 1… you’d think they would’ve been happy the people of these countries were fighting for their freedom.



Feb 14th AKA Lurve Day came ’round once more & even though a good attempt was made to love our enemies, we just couldn’t make the effort in the end.



Actor Len Lesser died.



TV & comicbook writer Dwayne McDuffie died.



March was the 7th anniversary of the Madrid train bombings, so we decided to reiterate the reasons why Muslim terrorists do such awful nonsense…

Fruit !

…wait what ???



& then disaster struck, as the Fukushima nuclear power plant was seriously damaged leading to the worst environmental disaster since Chernobyl.

& even though multiple explosions occurred LIVE on camera & high radiation levels were detected, they still misinformed us from the start.

Thanks, dying while not panicking sure helps a lot.



An unintentionally funny looking version of Wonder Woman starred in a TV pilot.

The outfit later changed for the better but apparently it was always the case as it was just 1 of 3 different outfits Diana would wear.

In the end the TV pilot wasn’t picked up… no wonder.



Hoping to win the chance to represent Great Britain, Shanna Bukhari, entered the competition for the British Miss Universe.

Unfortunately, Shanna encountered some fierce enemies along the way… no, not calories but pious Muslims !

She then told this to the media but her sob story apparently impressed neither audience or judges as Shanna didn’t win the final.

Later at the Miss Universe pageant, the eventual Miss Great Britain, Chloe-Beth Morgan, failed to even win Miss Congeniality.



2 people typed an odd term.

& thus… BISHFWILF returned !

But since it was on April Fools, was it all just a big joke ?



With Thé Anniversary of the decade slowly but surely approaching, I planned an event & began to set things into motion by sending an invitation to a friend.



Actress Elisabeth Sladen died



But not all was doom & gloom in the universe of Doctor Who as The Doctor crashed the royal wedding.

Oddly enough William & Kate didn’t bother to crash or even attend the Doctor’s wedding.

…wait, the Doctor got hitched ???



Then came some unexpected news that every sane & normal person in the world was hoping for.

Osama Bin laden was killed & was now deader than dead.

Once again: “woo-hoo !”



The earlier sent invitation for Thé Anniversary got approved & with my pal on board, planning for the event could proceed.



Unlike in most parts of the world, EDMD was celebrated on this web log.

That’s Everybody Draw Molly Day.

The day came & went but what great art !



Some 5 weeks after his bearded buddy Osama died, Ayman Al-Zawahiri finally got around to say some words.

…maybe watches & calendars are major enemies of Islam ???



Part 1 of my planned event for the anniversary of 9/11 was revealed.



Sick people in the form of certain fanatical Israeli rabbis tried to get some kids to stone an “unholy” dog to death.

They later denied it ever happened.

Kinda like how Palestinians are denied basic Human rights ?

No no, that’s different.

1 scenario is totally & utterly fictional, while in case of the other… the (under)dog managed to escape from oppression. :mrgreen:



Close to rebooting their entire universe & do all sorts of new exciting things with it, DC Comics nevertheless decided to do the same ol’ thing regarding Muslim superheroes.

Absolutely nothing.

They did however publish a tale about Superman’s dog, Krypto – super !



Actor Peter Falk died.



Fanatical Egyptian Muslims reacted with (what else ?) furious anger over a Coptic Egyptian tweeting a picture of Mickey & Minnie Mouse in “traditional” Islamic garb.

…Mickey & Minnie, while wearing sheets, are enemies of Islam too ???

Sheesh, there’s just no pleasing fanatical madmen !



Part 2 of my planned event for the anniversary of 9/11 was revealed.

Interview… with the Muslim !

*gasp*



Fed up with what was happening (in Egypt ?) Anders Behring Breivik or as I call him Mr Andersøn, committed an act against Islam in Europe.

By targeting many ethnic Norwegians.

Killer concept !

…how does that work though ?



Meanwhile, the gaggle of idiots AKA the Tea Party were doing their best to not use common sense in dealing with their most evil of foes, President Barack Obama.

Never knew tea was so bad for one’s sense of reality.



Less than 2 weeks after Mr Andersøn’s bloody rampage, Nørsk fearmonger pølitician Siv Jensen, leader of the Prøgress Party (lol), began hinting at the electiøns.

Wow !

Cold ambition or what ?



Late Show host, David Letterman, was mistaken for a Jew.

Now, if his name had been something like… oh, I dunno Lettermansteinbergkatzhorowtiz-shapiro, ok sure but with plain ol’ Letterman ???

Why can’t people simply understand David Letterman is a non-Jewish American, just like… like William Shatner ! :mrgreen:



As planned, DC Comics rebooted their entire main universe.

It was a sales smash !

Guess crap sells.



& then, after literally months of preparations, the 1st of an 11-part interview on the subject of 9/11 was posted.

Look out for that sequel, a 22-part interview in 2021 !



Conrad “The Conman” Murray‘s defence attorney gave a horrible argument in what already was a clear cut case.



Entertainment Weekly published an issue featuring The Avengers on its cover.

& entertaining it most certainly was.



Just a few months after Osama was killed, that other bearded loon, Anwar Al-Awlaki, left us for another level of existence.

Hope Hell is all you want it to be, Anwar !



Narrator: “Following an announcement regarding the future of a certain canceled-before-its-time sitcom which no-one ever bothered to watch, regular posting was briefly interrupted in a rather clever manner which no-one bothered to understand.”



Inmate Abdul Awkal began complaining about his food not being Islamic.

…sooo, food can be an enemy of Islam as well ???

Wow, this Islamic thing sure is all-encompassing, isn’t it ?



Libya became the latest free country in the Middle East.

In unrelated news, shortly after that they opened a small amusement park where, after you queue for hours, you get to see, photograph & even pose with lifelike replicas of former tyrants.



On that creepy day of Halloween, a tale of true horror was regaled.



The cover of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical magazine, showed their advice on how to handle pious Muslims.

…timekeeping devices, cartoon characters, food & French magazines too ?

This list is getting more & more ridiculous !



11/11/11 boringly happened…



The President dictator of Syria proved that you don’t need words on wordpress blogs.



Al-Qaeda’s #1 guy (now), Ayman Al-Zawahiri, shared his thoughts on Osama Bin Laden (again).

Somehow, he got it mixed up with an attempt at stand-up comedy &… well, it just wasn’t that funny.

…which made it funny.



Then, the day rolled around that marked the anniversary of Freddie Mercury‘s death 20 years ago.



Avie Tevanian, a friend of Steve Jobs, told a BBC docu what his pal did (or is that didn’t do) when cancer was diagnosed.

Steve Jobs would’ve lived longer & might even have been alive today if he hadn’t disregarded the advice of those closest around him.

In the end, Apple didn’t keep the doc away & Steve paid the ultimate price.



In a clear case of an educated woman being deemed un-Islamic, a guy with the last name of “Islam” decided he’d rather keep his wife at home instead of school by chopping off part of her right-hand.

A brilliant plan !

Now she’ll have no choice but to stay home to coo… uh, stay at home to clea… hmmm… you know, it seems there’s a lil’ snag to Mr Islam’s plan.



& finally, right before X-Mas, North Korea’s own Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Il died !

How’s that for a miracle ?

Yeah, I’m a believer !



Bye Bye 2011

Hey, Click Me !

















Holy crap !

Anyway, since I guess that’s it for 2011, I’d like to take this moment to wish you folks Happy Holidays from all of us here at X-Mer’s New Atlantica Page.

See you all next year… for THE END OF THE WORLD !!!


9/11: A 10th Anniversary Interview – Pt 11/11

September 11, 2011



September 11th, 2001.

The events of that day affected the daily lives of not just those in the US but also of countless people all over the world, in both subtle & not so subtle ways.

10 years later, the repercussions are still being felt but in all this time no voice has been given to the average moderate Muslim.

What follows is a transcript from an interview with a friend of mine, who has a Muslim background, on this broad topic of 9/11.

It was held on Saturday, June 11th, 2011.

—————————————————————



Question #11:

After an eternity, we finally had the death of Bin Laden himself & the 10th anniversary of the start of the War On Terror is coming up.

Where do you think the conflict, the War On Terror, will go in the next 10 years ? Where will it be in 2021 ? Is there a victory coming up, is there a defeat coming up ?

What’s going to happen in the next 10 years ?



Friend: Well, I think sooner or later some of those guys are going to run out of men, even though…

X-Mer: The terrorists or the US troops ?

Friend: The US troops is very unlikely, I think… the terrorist groups, maybe they do have a lot of recruits, who knows & who can tell ?

It goes back to the fearmongering, when you start presenting people by trying to group them together like “this is the bad group” you’re going to create that hostility, that hate. So, yeah then it could go on forever.

But I think there’s going to be… another group of people & then the focus will be on that group of people. They’ll probably still be fighting in Afghanistan but you’ll never hear about it. It will all be about…

X-Mer: “60 Minutes” will talk about something else ?

Friend: Like you said about Ian Davison, that’s not something you should ignore, that’s quite a dangerous man.

X-Mer: Imagine if he escapes ? Won’t he be mad, what if wants revenge ?

Friend: That’s a very big possibility.

X-Mer: & he knows how to make poison !

Friend: Sure & who’s to say he’s not going to make much more of it ?

It’s where do you put your focus. I don’t know who the next group is going to be, some people say North Korea maybe or maybe it’s going to be the Russians again because they’re growing as a superpower.

X-Mer: Let’s not foget the Chinese.

Friend: The Chinese. So, who knows ? You have all the development in India, the knowledge & technology is growing there…

X-Mer: Both India & Pakistan have nuclear capabilities now.

Friend: Yeah, so who’s to say who’s going to be the next group of people ? & would it take another incident like 9/11 to escalate things ? Maybe, maybe not.

X-Mer: Like you said, the 1st World War started with that prince being shot dead & that was used as a startingpoint, possibly an excuse…

Friend: Yeah, that was the excuse I think.

X-Mer: …& then here the events of 9/11, another startingpoint for another conflict, so there’s always these…

Friend: There’s always… seems to be a startingpoint & excuse, like World War II & you had Poland & Hitler. They allowed Hitler, before Poland, to “collect” all those countries & they said: “if he does this THEN we’ll do something, then we’ll start the war”.

X-Mer: Took a long time before they started the war.

Friend: Yeah true.

I think it’s just gonna go on forever, unfortunately.

X-Mer: You don’t think there’ll be a victory by either side ?

Friend: It’s just a vicious cycle.

X-Mer: You won’t see, suppose he’d lived, see Osama Bin Laden taking over the White House or President Obama proudly walking across a safe frontier between Afghanistan & Pakistan ?

Friend: I think it’s very unlikely. Take India & Pakistan, how long have they been fighting amongst eachother ?

X-Mer: & the thing is, that’s basically brother against brother because you had 1 nation.

Friend: Right. You had the division because of religion but it probably was about money & power. As long as that greed is going to exist, we’re still going to be having those conflicts.

So, no I don’t see it ending anytime soon. It’s just going to… the names will be different but…

X-Mer: So, 10 years from now there’ll be something new to take the focus ?

Friend: Yeah, sure.

I saw “Watchmen” the movie yesterday… well, in order to achieve worldpeace you really have to give people a common enemy, so… unless we get invaded by aliens I don’t see worldpeace coming.

X-Mer: Ok, so could there be a World War III as a result of 9/11 ?

Friend: Maybe we already had it but we don’t realize it. Could you say the Arab Spring is now part of it ?

X-Mer: Do you think it’s part of it ? You could argue that there’s all these types of events, starting from 9/11 ?

Friend: I think it’s all connected. I mean there’s probably stuff…

X-Mer: Earlier stuff.

Friend: Earlier stuff, you had the Russians trying to invade Afghanistan & you had the US helping out…

X-Mer: The CIA apparently trained Bin Laden.

Friend: Yeah, sure. You can’t really locate the beginning of it & probably won’t see the end of it.

X-Mer: Any closing thoughts on the subject matter ?

Friend: Well, I think we pretty much concluded that it’ll never end. That’s a bit of a downer, of course but you know…

When you get down to it, we’re all just people trying to live our lives &… it’s a shame there have to be people with a lot of power… I just think that they ruin it for all of us, really.

I think we all have the ability to be good people & you know, all this… war & things like that, it’s just bullshit really.

X-Mer: [LOL] Wait a minute, profanity on my blog ?

Friend: [LOL] Sorry.

It’s like… people creating conflict where there couldn’t be or shouldn’t be any. Like you said, it’s just about the greed.

X-Mer: Ok, let’s leave it at that. Thank you for your time !

Friend: Thanks for the interview, it was a lot of fun & it was quite different from what I expected.

X-Mer: Really ?!?

To sneak another question in there, what did you think… you must’ve have had some sort of thought or idea of what might happen.

Friend: Yeah, I thought 11 questions were going to be a bit too much & wondered if you could come up with them but you did quite a good job I think.

X-Mer: Thank you.



—————————————————————

That’s it for part 11 & also this interview on the 10 aniversary of 9/11.

It took a serious amount of prep time & elbow grease later on, to make all of it come together.

& now that it’s over & am finally able to look back on it, it was most certainly worth every effort along the way.

RIP to the innocent victims of 9/11 & all those since then.



Thanks for reading !



…& So It Ends (Again) ?

August 31, 2011



With this end of August comes another ending.

Because as of today DC Comics has ceased to be.

Oh sure, the publishing of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc will continue but starting September 1st, the status quo is no more.



Over the past decades, DC has done this several times in very a similar fashion where some sort of major crisis alters reality for the characters.

So, while hardly new… it still pretty much sucks if you wanted to keep on reading stories set in the current version of its (increasingly complicated) continuity.

DC itself means “Detective Comics” but in this instance I think I’ll go with “Don’t Cry”.






Arthur Sad, Batman !



DC Aquaman, DC…


All We Hear Is Radio Nah Nah

March 12, 2011



Earthquakes are never good news, especially not when it’s the single greatest 1 to occur in your entire nation’s history.

A wave of aftershocks & tsunamis following that is not much help either.

But at least everything’s ok beyond that… right ?



Not long after disaster had struck, Naoto Kan, the Japanese Prime Minister appeared before TV to give some official updates on the situation.

It was then & there he informed his countrymen & the world that the nuclear power plants along the Eastern coast had shut down to prevent any bad things from happening.

A sigh of relief to be sure but then the reports painting a very different picture started to come in.



– Fire breaks out inside 1 of the nuclear power plants but it’s apparently put out by staff…

– Reactor pressure starts to rise as the cooling fails…

– The Japanese government declares a state of emergency…

– Evacuations of those living nearby begins…

– Radioactive steam is purposely released several times right into the atmosphere to relieve pressure from building up any further…

– Control of 3 reactors is lost & they begin to overheat…

– Radiation levels in & outside the plants begin to rise…

– A huge explosion occurs inside 1 of the power plants which then apparently leads to a collapse & then “white smoke” starts to appear around the site of the plant…

– Reports suddenly indicate a meltdown may be underway & yet in spite of all this “things are ok, no need to panic“…



Earthquakes aren’t anything new for Japan as they’ve happened in the past, happen in the present & will happen on a regular basis long into the future.

But Japan is also 1 of the largest users of nuclear power in the world & has over 50 power plants all over the country & new ones are planned.

Am I the only 1 who thinks that combining an earthquake-prone country with a large amount of factories that generate radioactive energy might not be the safest idea ?



No one wants another Chernobyl but who knows what kind of dangers this all might lead to.

In any case let’s hope things get better soon.

For all.






Gojira Breathes...


12 x 2010

December 28, 2010

During these past 12 months of 2010…



Incompetence was something apparently to be proud of as al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for a terror attack that failed from beginning to end.

That’s the spirit guys !



Certain Muslim groups in Malaysia were totally outraged when those pesky infidels Christians dared to use the word “Allah” in a newspaper to refer to God.

Stupid Christians, don’t you know those Malaysians Muslims have a monopoly on the word “Allah” ?



Conan O’Brien walked away from his dream job of hosting The Tonight Show after NBC Universal overlord Jeff Zucker destroyed… well, the whole of NBC basically.

Jeff Zucker was later fired & Coco got a new late-night show at TBS.

Say Jeff ? I hear al-Qaeda is looking for help these days…



A victim of an exploding cigarette in Indonesia led to a cigarette company spokesperson to actually claim their tobacco sticks do not contain “strange materials”.

I always assumed addiction & loss of health were natural ingredients but now I know for certain…



That glorious gammazon known as She-Hulk celebrated her 30th anniversary.

Congrats again Jen !



Libya’s very own Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi, or as I like to call him “Crazy Uncle Mo”, used the celebration of Muhammad’s birthday as an opportunity to call for jihad against the Swiss because “any Muslim in any part of the world who works with Switzerland is an apostate, is against Muhammad, God and the Koran.”.

…I guess that explains why my packages with Swiss milk chocolate came back with “return to sender” written all over them.



Yet another Predator movie was released.

It might’ve been part 3.



Then 7 years after the US invasion of Iraq… still no sign of WMDs.

Maybe Saddam used cloaking technology to hide them, you know just like the US did with the reason for going there in the 1st place.



Speaking of hiding, after the US House Of Representatives voted “Yea” on health care the USA could finally show its face proudly among other nations who actually care for their sick.

Well done President Obama !



iPad’s turned out to be very blendable.

Is there no end to its uses ?



Our old pal Christopher Walken got his very own caricature at Sardi’s.

Oh wait, no he didn’t.



Muslim convert & allround people hater Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee, better known to his mom as Zachary Adam Chesser, “warned” the creators of South Park for maybe depicting Muhammad.

Wow, what a guy !

Zach was later arrested on charges of terrorism after wanting to join up with the Sharia Lovers AKA al-Shabaab in Somalia. Helpful fellow as he is, he was probably on his way to “warn” them about something.

Hopefully he’ll be able to continue helping people by “warning” them… in prison.



TV series 24, in its 8th & final season, began its final 6 episodes which lead to several posts of quotes as a lazy tribute of sorts.



Sick person Roman Polanski claimed he wasn’t awaiting extradition for the sex crime of raping a minor but for the sake of publicity.



Disgusting little man Woody Allen came to Polanski’s defence.

Never knew they were friends but him doing that was about as shocking as Republicans proclaiming their undying love for rich white people.



Then, Everybody Draw Muhammad Day rolled around but its originator & South Park fan Molly Norris suddenly showed her true colours by distancing herself from the very event she called for.

EDMD came & went but Molly had to go into hiding & even changed her identity.

Seeing as she could look like anyone or anything now, perhaps we should hold a new EDMD… Everybody Draw Molly Day ?



Unsure if anyone had actually participated in EDMD, I went in search of these people & found only 1 willing to chat about it.

& although a drawing was made, he or she was too lazy to scan it.



Artist & actor Dennis Hopper died, followed only a few days later by the animal loving actress Rue McClanahan.



After which this web log was hit by people looking for all things pertaining to Wonder Woman because of her new direction in a less revealing outfit.

…probably the first time a woman has gotten so much attention for dressing up more.



The Food Standards Agency said products from cloned animals were safe to consume.

Repaying your already bought food is the biggest scam ever but no one complained.



Speaking of scams, after the intended remake failed to materialize the Weinstein Bros were close to losing their film rights for Hellraiser, so a new sequel was rushed into production.

Expect this oscar winner at your local DVD outlet, together with other fine direct-to-DVD Weinstein “movies” like the 7th Children Of The Corn (Revelation) & of course Feast 3: The Happy Finish.



Several years of odd search engine terms directing people here, lead to the start of “BISHFWILF” posts.

I have no idea why you’re here or what you expected to find but bless you “Burqa Sex” perverts for upping my site statistics !



September began by blogging on my blog about bloggedy blog blog.

Yes.



After EDMD, International Burn A Koran Day made its debut.

As far as participation goes, this made up holiday event was less successful than EDMD but it ended up giving its originator Terry Jones, an unknown furniture seller Pastor, lots & lots of media exposure around & on 9/11.

Hey, how’s that furniture business going Terry ?



After nearly 70 days, all 33 trapped Chilean miners were rescued in a capsule from their collapsed Atacama desert mine.

Books & movies of men sitting around in total darkness are forthcoming.

We can only hope the Weinsteins aren’t involved…



Marvel showed its determination in making The Incredible Hulk profitable no matter what & announced a vague plan for a new TV series.

Why not retool it into a series about a female lawyer & her inability to stay calm under stress which makes her rip her clothes off ?



The actor Simon MacCorkindale died.



La France went le très nuts after learning they had to retire at a later age.



The actor Tom Bosley died.

Not a happy day.



In Burma, a new type of strange yet familiar looking snub-nosed monkey was discovered.



The creepy day of Halloween occurred on the same day a very real creepy event took place…



Owen McLauchlan, an EMT, showed us why having your tea break = being 1 of the a sick people.



As the coldness of winter started to set in, news arrived of an acquaintance of mine who had slipped into a coma & didn’t have long to life.

She died shortly thereafter.



Weird search engine terms kept giving this web log new visitors, so it became time for another BISHFWILF post.

I have no idea why you’re here or what you expected to find but bless you “Slutty Krypton” perverts for also upping my site statistics !



Just as it seemed the Hellraiser franchise was ruined beyond repair, its original creator Clive Barker himself was announced as the co-writer of an upcoming new ongoing comic series.

Praise Leviathan !



& last but certainly not least, there was a surprise image a friend of mine sent me for X-Mas.

12 Months 2010

Hey, Click Me !
















Damn !

Anyway, since I guess that’s it for 2010, I’d like to take this moment to wish you folks Happy Holidays from all of us here at X-Mer’s New Atlantica Page.

See you next year… for more posts on Sick People, BISHFWILF & hopefully some Cheesecake too !


12 x 2009

December 17, 2009

During these past 12 months of 2009…



Barack H Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the USA.



Erik Larsen abused used the War On Terror to sell his comic.



This blog’s 2 year anniversary rolled around.

Yes, it amazes me too that it’s still being updated.



Vampirella artist José “Pepe” González died.



Wolverine lost his brand new movie to the mighty I-net.



Objectum-Sexuals were interviewed.



Swine Flu appeared & began to grow to pandemic proportions.

Scientists meanwhile battled feverishly to… contain it name it.

Was it called H1N1 ?
Was it called Swine Flu ??
Was it called Mexican Flu ???
Was it called Swine Influenza AKA “SI” ????

No one knew & thus no one bothered to take the nameless flu seriously.



The 1-Page Comic Challenge returned.



President Obama held an historic speech in Egypt.



Iran pretended it held elections & then acted all offended when confronted with the truth.



Italy wanted 3 Guantanamo inmates.



President Obama killed… a fly.



Then, all of a sudden… Michael Jackson died & just as sudden, everyone who hated him loved him again.



A South Park version of cartoon character Jem was posted, which was of course truly outrageous



Jennifer Walters was bitch slapped several times in a row by Marvel Comics.



President Obama was compared with the Joker for being a socialist… WTF ?



The talented & versatile John Hughes died.



A previous law that forced Afghani women to **** their husbands
regurlarly was changed so that men could withhold food from their wives.

The next version of this law where Afghani men get actual full pimp status will be out any day now.



My neighbours made some noisy lovin’ but I was the one who was moaning about it as the police had no clue what to do about it.



Marvel Comics was taken over by Disney.

What will they do to She-Hulk ?



The 9th of the 9th of the 9th happened but it was an ordinary day.



Agent Provocateur designed an underwear line around a superheroine theme.

I have yet to be rescued by any of these scantily clad women.



Motherly love was given a new meaning by a sick person.



It turned out David Letterman slept around & around & around & around &…



While President Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing, Switzerland’s SVP declared it had had enough of neutrality & decided to hold a referendum on Minarets.



Hollywood decided their next remake project would be the A-Team

Hey, remember when Hollywood made original movies ?



A military psychiatrist specializing in Mental Health went nuts !

Ironic twist or what ?



The US House Of Representatives passed their version of the Healthcare Bill.



Colonel Gaddafi decided to convert hot tall Italian women to Islam, what a guy !

Still a bit weird though, seeing as little women wearing a veil don’t look so bad.



The Swiss People’s Party’s referendum turned out a success.

I guess no 5th minaret then.



The search for a successor for the Kyoto Protocol began in Denmark & politicians were blamed in advance.



& last but certainly not least, there were 2 separate but positive announcements from DC & Marvel about women.

Namely, Wonder Woman finally having her 600th issue & Girl Comics, a project to be made only by women creators.

12 Months 2009
