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

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
