misc.

TV series Lucifer-- Based on DC comics Sandman, this new show had some Christians up in arms about it last year when news came out about it, with the usual predictable crap from their ignorance in context. I've seen all the broadcast episodes so far and frankly its little more than a cop procedural with Lucifer Morningstar being a smug asshole. There's promise about his absense from hell causing problems but so far nothing really interesting to me. There was one scene where he rightly calls a street preacher fake a liar and scares the crap out of that shyster, but the whole demon and hell aspect is not exploited like it should be.

Supergirl-- To my pleasant surprise,the first season so far doesn't stink. They actually pulled it off enough that a second season is promised.

X-Files season 10-- Actually pretty good. Last week's episode about the "weremonster" was to me funny enough I laughed out loud at some parts of it.

The Choice movie-- The only reason I would be interested in this movie is because Tom Welling is in it. Unfortunately the reviews so far say this movie stinks. AFAIK Welling has more of a cameo appearance in this than any lenghthy role.

McExorcist Bob Larson-- Supposedly will have a new book out against Mammon but will switch to peddling the prosperity gospel crap since his current exorcism exploitatiin may be dying off. Same old greedy buy my books and DVDs and my "school" marketing disguised as a religious organization.

True Blood season 6

Actually that season wasn't so bad. It wasnt great, but at least it wasn't totally dumbass stupid.

Interesting parts: Book of Lilith ( the vampire bible) , the hepatitis V in the Tru Blood as a response to the vampire wilding out of control, the curfew on vampires because of the wilding, Eric being the proactive hero instead of a complete asshole, and the Bililith blood making captured vampires able to walk in the sunlight.

Dumbass stupid parts: Bill- Lilith trapped as a savior vampire god where only Fae blood can save him from sunlight, the tired and predictable trope of Sookies love interest being the same one out to get her, a vampire concentration camp set up involving vampires who are faster than human reactions yet seem to not fight back until Eric and Bill come in, some bullshit plot twists about the Fae, Lilith and a fae- vampire hybrid and Sookies parents not being as loving as she thought. Oh and a weak crappy " prophecy" in the Book of Lilith.

Even before I heard of the hep V plot, I figured that due to the vampire wilding killing spree on season 5, some human would have devised a way to create vampire genocide, their weakness being the need for Tru Blood.

I won't spoil the ending shot for the season, but even I figured out the walking around in sunlight bit wouldn't be permanent. Kinda dumb for a centuries old vampire sunbathing in the nude to be so naive to assume that the protection was permanent.

A small group of human "monster welfare" activists being too dumb to be wary around werewolves and paying for their naivete. A slasher tyoe movie chase scene involving the female religious zealot and the female representative of a Japanese company that was supposed to be macabre humor but turned out to be meh. Some of the minor supporting characters were more fleshed out. And a slimy little betrayer turned vampire finally gets what he deserves,though I did like that character.

Supergirl TV series

So far the TV series Supergirl isn't as bad as I feared. In fact its gotten some pretty good reviews.

Seems they kept the Supergirl was to raise Kal -El but got delayed story plot mentioned in Smallville. But it looks like they melded bits and pieces of the various Supergirl origin stories into this version. Dunno yet if they're going to flesh out better a few things, but they did adapt the Smallville monster of the week plot device into a better Warehouse 13 type of plot device.

A few bits here and there seem to be weak, but then again the series has finished only a few episodes so far.

Unfortunately one episide about a terrorist was shelved because it was scheduled to air the Monday after the Paris massacres.

Robin Williams

Bullshit conspiracy web site includes an entry on Robin Williams.

I could really spew some vitriol on the crap on that web page alone, but choose not to. Suffice to say only dumbasses fall for garbage like that.

True Blood season 4

I finally got both season 3 & 4 of True Blood,partly because I saw season 5 when HBO did their little big event promo days for the sixth season hurrah publicity.

I posted earlier my opinion of season 1 & 2. Both season 3 & 4 had some promise and a few good character developments of the supporting characters.

But the " Wiccans" and Goddess shop and " necromancer" croneish lady of season 4 was so atrociously done, so frigging bad and hack workish, that I fully agree with the Pagans who were upset when that garbage aired.

https://sites.google.com/site/truebloodmoralsorimmortals/wicca-in-true-blood

https://wizzley.com/a-wiccan-responds-to-true-blood-season-four/

Among others.

I found it offensive that the show portrayed the members of the "coven" as weak little fraidy cats, that two while trapped "called on the Goddess" with what was the most inane unemotional lame ass invocation I have ever heard, plus the total ignorance of the Rede by the so- called necromancer / medium / high priestess that was so awful I even began to think both Buffy and Charmed were better.

While the high priestess in the wizzley link had some very good points, my take on this is yeah this is fantasy, not reality, so the so-called Wicca in this was not what Wiccans are and do. But it is no different, image wise,than the "satanic cult" portrayals in certain horror movies and TV shows of the seventies and eighties.

I should note that soon after during season 5 the creator of these characters Charlaine Harris, pretty much put both of her thumbs down on the show and even went so far as to kill Sookie in her novel.

http://www.tv.com/news/true-blood-with-alan-ball-gone-and-the-show-straying-further-from-its-source-material-where-should-the-series-go-in-season-6--137089429008/

And, no surprise,the fans of True Blood hated her for it,for killing Sookie. Even though she had her reasons to do so as a writer. I should also mention that Harris highly dislikes any of her characters being used in fan fiction. An unfortunate dictatorial stance considering that when she started writing, I bet she wrote fanfic.

I like the character Lafayette and both seasons had some good interesting parts. But some of this felt "wrong". And yes there has to be the damn nudity and make believe screwings, which again felt like airtime filler.

But I can see how season 5 was a train veering off the rails and the online comments of seasons 6 & 7 aren't promising. I'm withholding judgement about why the popular series went bye bye until after I watch the last two seasons, but I have a few suspicions.

After all, you should never piss off a witch.....

cult Christian church beats children , one dies.

Wonder what these two bastards excuse is for this murder?

Bruce Leonard and wife Deborah Leonard of the Christian CULT church "Word of Life Church" of New Hartford, are being charged with manslaughter over one son's death. Manslaughter after HOURS of beating.

Enough of this crap. Fanatics like these shou be charged with MURDER. No damn excuses because of their religion.

Chris Harper-Mercer

By now the name of the Oregon shooter, in spite of the law enforcement spokesman`s intent never to name him, is Chris Harper-Miller. Details are too early about this case for me to cite authoritatively, but a few things online I decided to note here.

One alleged witness claims he asked the religion of the students before shooting them, implying that he was specifically targetung Christians. This feels a bit too much of the Cassie Bernall myth story for me to consider credible inless others speak up and verify her story.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/10/01/umpqua-gunman-id-d-as-chris-harper-mercer.html

An UK tabloid online claims he was British, supported the IRA and was a Nazi type.


http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/609395/Chris-Harper-Mercer-shooter-Oregon-Umpqua-Community-CollegeHe apparently did this partly to "honor" Elliot Roger and Vester Flanagan.

Like Roger, he was of mixed race-- white father and African American mother-- and lived an upper class upbringing, like Roger did.

He lists himself online as conservative Republcan but supposedly "not religious." He was a loner and introvert of sorts, definitely not a social person.

He had a blog under a file sharing site under the name Lithium_love, the pertinent part praising Flanagan repeated elsewhere online.

Among the weapons he used was an AR -15 tyoe assault rifle.

I can understand why the law enforcement official refused to say his name. Considering what the murderer did say online, it is clear even to me he wanted to be "famous" like Elloit Roger. I understand but as a true crime reader I disagree with withholding his name. Partly because people need to understand WHY he did it and partly to show the characteristics of the person that indicate a criminal profile of such mass murderers.

And he does seem to share a few characteristics of other mass or spree shooter murderers in the last 20 years or so.

The odd thing is that I personally hve a few of these characteristics (introvert, for example) yet I have absolutely no desire to go on a spree murder or any of that crap. In fact that notion is repulsive to me.

Maybe its because I'm female, not male, and that I'm at least somewhat mature.

Jezebel spirit-- includes feminism and democracy

Ive been doing some reading online about this "Jezebel spirit" crap McExorcist and Pentecostals/ charismatics are peddling. One of the interesting web sites Ive come acriss is the one listed below

http://www.albatrus.org/english/church-order/women-matters/jezebel_in_our_society.htm

Interesting not in how factual it is -- its not. There are some serious factual errors , including wrongly mixing deity names-- but in the sense that it confirms my throry that the Jezebel spirit claim is indeed connected to anti-feminism.

Christian postal clerk steals from Pagan customer

This pretty much says it:

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2015/09/16/mystery-usps-clerk-stole-pagan-womans-books-out-of-the-mail-replaced-them-with-a-hymnal/

http://wildhunt.org/2015/09/pagan-books-stolen-from-mail-replaced-by-hymnal.html#disqus_thread

Fortunately the lady fully intends to sue the as yet unnamed postal worker thief. Once said thief is identifief, no doubt he or she will whine "Christian persecution" victimhood.

Poor bigoted self righteous Xians. We're no longer remaining silent while you trod on us and piss on us.

Kevin Sorbo--party rager?

Kevin Sorbo, D- list actor, Hercules TLJ star, now a far right Christian actor, seemed to have had a rager party at his home last July.

http://pagesix.com/2015/07/05/kevin-sorbos-hamptons-rager/

Naturally nothing about him actually being there or not.

BTW for a guy who claims Hollywood has shunned him for his Christianity, he sure as hell lives in a very nice mansion.
