and the word of the day is....

AFLOCKALYPSE.

from the REAL TRUTH website:

Flocks of dead birds in nations around the world, along with numerous dead fish, have caught the attention of international news media. Google Maps so far has tracked 30 incidents worldwide, with most in the United States and Europe. Scientists, bloggers and others are trying to make sense of these mysterious phenomena, with some calling it the “aflockalypse,” a play on the word apocalypse.

The widespread interest began after 4,000-5,000 red-winged blackbirds were found dead in Beebe, Arkansas. Preliminary lab tests indicated they died from multiple blunt force trauma.

Scientists have since offered several explanations.

Karen Rowe, an ornithologist for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, asserted that the sudden mass deaths of animals such as the red-winged blackbirds are not unusual and happen across the world, often caused by lightning strikes or high-altitude hail. She explained that sometimes birds are caught in hurricane-force winds or heavy fog, and crash into cliffs or each other.

Michio Kaku, professor of physics at The City University of New York, told Fox News the incidents are not unusual and sudden mass animal deaths such as these “happen all the time.” He said these reports are only now reaching the attention of international news media because people are more interconnected than ever before, via the Internet, which allows news to travel faster than in past generations.

According to the spokesman for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, stormy weather (such as hail or lightning) may be at fault. Since the Arkansas incident happened during New Year’s celebrations, fireworks may have brought down the birds.

The director of the National Wildlife Health Center, in Madison, Wisconsin, also said the incidents are relatively common, and stated that his office has investigated 16 mass bird deaths in the last two decades.

According to scientists, the magnetic North Pole is shifting 25 miles a year, perhaps affecting instinctual navigation systems in birds and fish, which animals use to locate breeding grounds and warmer climates.

Other recent mass animal deaths include:

  • 200 American coots in Big Cypress Creek, Texas.
  • 450 birds spread across on a highway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
  • 40,000 Velvet swimming crabs (“devil crabs”) along the beaches of Thanet, Kent, in England.
  • Thousands of crabs at Palm Bay, Margate.
  • 100 pelicans near Jacksonville, North Carolina.
  • 70 bats in Tucson, Arizona.

I am only not rational when I am around people wearing white socks or online shopping. but I am going to wear a pizza box on my body come Monday with the words ENDZ TIME CUMMING ON UR MOUTH painted on with ketchup. repent or else you will kill 4000 mongoose in India DON'T TOOL WITH GOD sHE'S CRAZY.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
