Spectre Ties Up Many Loose Ends

Spectre 3  Spectre 4Spectre 5 Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, and to me that’s a bit of a stretch, since I still have in my mind that he was the choice to play Race Bannon in the latest attempt to do a live Jonny Quest movie.

What Spectre will be remembered for in the long run is how it managed to tie up a lot of loose ends in the last 40 or so years of Bond films. Basically, the story follows our hero after he gets in a bit of hot water over a caper in Mexico. We further find out that a plan is under way to make the “00” corps obsolete as a new world alliance is considering consolidating world security.

We also find out that only “M” and “Q”, along with Miss Moneypenny are still around, as even James’ old female superior is dead. Bond goes after someone referred to as “The Pale King”, who may be responsible for all this. James confiscates another agent’s supercar and heads off for Rome, along the way briefly seeing this Pale King and becoming engaged in a breakneck chase with Dave Bautista (from Guardians of the Universe) in pursuit. Some hilarity results when none of the car’s weaponry works.

Bond goes off to Austria next to track down the daughter of an older spy and wrecks a plane in yet another conflict that leaves Hinx (Bautista) unconscious. Tangiers, Africa is next, and a long train ride brings Bond and Hinx literally at each other’s throat in a fight to see who gets thrown off the train.

Bond and the girl wind up in a high-tech installation in the African desert where he finally comes face to face with the Pale King, who turns out to be the son of his long-time enemy Blofeld. From here we find out a lot about Bond’s past and that this Blofeld was actually the man behind most of Bond’s problems in his life. The installation is destroyed but Blofeld gets away, leading to a climactic and explosive finish that exposes a member of the British security forces as a protagonist.

All ends well as we see James and the girl drive off in something “Q” had been working on—the fully restored original Bond Aston Martin. Inside word is that this may have been Craig’s final appearance as Bond, but if it is he went out in a blaze of glory.

Recent UFO Controversy

UFO 5UFO leaves Sun Dec 24 2014California dead alien   UFOs are a hot topic–always have been, always will be—but sometimes it’s the “extra” touches that are really interesting. The sharp, crystal clear photos, such as the first one above, are hard to explain or dismiss, so they are casually glossed over by the authorities as “unexplainable” (which means “we don’t know what the hell this is”), even as the “photoshop” element is inserted. The second photo is fairly recent. It shows an unidentified object flying around very close to the sun. It was palmed off as a composite someone made as a joke by many “experts” because since we don’t have any ships that can fly that close to the sun, it’s impossible for one to be there.

That reaffirms the belief that man is the zenith of creation, lord and master of everything “out there”. Time has come for humans to get off that high horse. More and more people now believe we’re not alone in the universe, and the more science tries to prove we are, the more people realise science is full of baloney, or what’s left after digestion of said baloney.

This brings us to picture three. The full story—-late last week in California, thousands of people saw a bright streak zipping across the night sky and the reports started flooding in about UFOs. No one reads the news or listens to pre-released explanations. It was announced earlier that day that a rocket would be tested that night. Furthermore, Earth was in the midst of a heavy “meteor shower” as it passed through a comet’s tail, and “fireballs” were even showing up in bright daylight in such places as Indonesia. All that was forgotten as UFO fever took over and carried on its impact to the ground. Someone reported finding an “alien” in their back yard and took a picture of it. The photo quickly became a rallying point as others began reporting similar finds without photographic proof.

As ugly and strange as this “alien” was, science was quick to offer explanations, and quite a few level-headed individuals reached the same conclusion on their own without the explanation. It was reported that this was merely a premature fetus from a deer. Sometimes, in extreme emergencies, a female deer has been known to ditch an unborn fetus to escape a life-or-death situation. This was such a case, but the explanation didn’t satisfy some people. The panic was further fueled when people who tried to post this photo on Twitter or Facebook, myself included, found their posts “vanishing” as they went up, removed by those in charge of those sites. I saw my own comment on this picture vanish as I was typing it. To the average person, this would have been scary enough, but after years of having an enemy “edit” what I write, I’ve become accustomed to this behaviour.

In conclusion, I know we are not alone n this universe. I believe in extraterrestrials and their technology, but will try to explain what I see with an open mind. If something looks like it could be something else, I will say so, but if it doesn’t, I’ll report it as such—no sugar coating to lessen the impact. Such sugar coating could be the death of us in the end.
