Still Recovering From The EclipseNovember 3rd, 2017
Let’s be honest things haven’t been right since the solar eclipse. Not that everything was hunky dunky before the eclipse but the juju has been even stranger since the moon made the sun its beatch. It’s like when your car hits a big pothole, there’s no visible damage but the vehicle just doesn’t seem to run right afterward. Here is a recent example of off-kilterness. On Halloween just about every kid who came to the door passed on the Snickers, Kit Kat and Twix bars to scoop up fruit gummy type candy. You know the universe is out of sync when children, aka, the future, turn away from America’s amazing candy bars. Not that there’s anything we could’ve done about it but that moon/sun tussle pushed the weird factor up a few notches. Yes there were shootings and terrorist attacks and hurricanes before the Big E but we logged the biggest mass shooting and most damaging hurricanes in a season after Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Solar Eclipse featuring Ryan Seacrest. And as we head into the holidays we will witness more strangeness in this trend to blend the Nativity Scene with pop culture. Do you really want to see Santa kneeling next to the baby Jesus? Should storm troopers be standing next to the Three Wise Men? Why are the Peanuts characters hanging out by the manger with Charlie Brown offering baby J a football? Mary and Joseph with fidget spinners is just plain wrong.
We are a severed limb away from The Walking Dead characters heading to Bethlehem on Christmas Eve. So as Howard Beale said in the movie NETWORK..”I want you to get up right now. Sit up. Go to your windows. Open them and stick your head out and yell ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not gonna take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad! You’ve got to say, I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!” And then please, please, please take baby Jesus out of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine and put him back in the manger!
