Bluey ... Who Ya Gonna Call ... Ghostbasket? πŸ“±πŸ‘»πŸ“΅

I just watched the latest 'Bluey' episode after reading an article about the show on an ABC news site, and the article even included a list of suicide prevention numbers ... in case you might want to call someone?
I have to say that it was one of the weirdest 
'Bluey' episodes that I have ever watched ... not that I feel the need to ring someone about it, though:-)
I could have done with the Beyond Blue phone number after the State of Origin episode though:-)

Adrian Schiller (1964-2024) Born and Died in the Year of the Wood Dragon?πŸͺ΅πŸ‰

Adrian Schiller, like me, will be the last of the "Baby Boomers" to turn 60.
Adrian Schiller (1964-2024)
The "Baby Boomers" is just an artificial grouping of age groups made up by bureaucrats to give people like Gordon White scapegoats to blame for all the world's ills and make him feel better about being a Gen Y;-)
To quote Gordo from his book 'The Chaos Protocols' - " the baby boomers are the economic equivalent of biblical locust swarm ...", which I mentioned in this 2021 post -
Boomers, Gen XGen Y, and Gen Z Explained?
The Alphabet [Rune] Soup of Gen X, Y, Z ... and Baby Boomers?
It makes me laugh to hear Gordo (who is a millennial/Gen Y) and his old mate Chris Knowles from 'The Secret Sun' cult blog ragging out Boomers, when Knowles who is about two years younger than me, looks five years older than me;-)
I guess "profits/gurus/prophets" have to look older to get the cash off their sheep followers;-)
I can't help thinking how much
Adrian looks like Chris Knowles double to a slight degree, ironically ... or is it just my old Boomer eyes playing tricks on me?:-)
Don't mind me Chris, I'm just an old Aussie Boomerang who likes taking the piss out of you young ones before I go ... which could be any day now ... or at least you young Gen Erics would be hoping, I'll bet.
Chris Knowles
With sad sacks like Gordon White and Chis Knowles spewing their doom and gloom around the net, I'm glad my end is near;-)

I must have watched 'Beauty and the Beast' not long before Adrian passed away -

What's with the Blue World Order? πŸ˜³πŸ’™πŸŽ¦

I noticed a lot of traffic to an old 2018 post of mine about a low budget Sci-Fi movie that was shot around Canberra in 2016/17, which I realized I had never watched ... until yesterday -
Blue World (Dis)Order?
Blue World Order (2017)
In hindsight, watching the movie from 2024 in a post-Covid world, maybe the movie takes on a new metaphorical meaning than it did at the time?
I couldn't find the movie on any Australian streaming services that I subscribe to, so I ended up watching it through my TV set on You Tube, as someone had uploaded the movie to watch for free, and in all honesty, that's about the right price, as it's like a bad PKD story ... and about 80% of PKD's stories were this bad in my opinion;-)
Radio Free Albemuth (VALISystem A)?πŸ“‘πŸ›°
This is the full movie, which I watched yesterday below, which was posted 2 years ago to You Tube.
"The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world in which civilisation has crumbled. A massive electromagnetic pulse has killed all children on the planet with the exception of Molly (Billie Rutherford), the daughter of Jake Slater (Jake Ryan). Slater is also the only man immune to a virus released by the film pulse.
The film was largely shot around Canberra, Australia"
Blue World Order (2017)
I'm surprised to see big name actors like Billy Zane and Jack Thompson in such a trainwreck of a film.
Jack Thompson did open the Commonwealth Games in 2018 -

Blue World Order (2017)
I only watched the film to pick out the Canberra locations used in the movie, such as the Telstra Tower on Black Mountain, which I wrote about visiting in 2016 -

Blue World Order (2017)
The movie is worth checking out ... for free, that is:-)
I see that one of the filming locations was
Lake George, which I have also written about visiting -

They also filmed at the Canberra Glassworks, where I bought the TV duck on a spoon from -

TOE of the UFO?πŸ›Έ πŸ‘½πŸ‘ΎπŸ‘€

I always wonder when
UFO guys like Richard Dolan will get sick of chasing their own tails/tales?-)
They just never seem to get anywhere with their TOEs.

Ear Ringing ... That's Just Not Crickets? πŸ‘‚πŸ¦—

Listening to the latest (free part of the) 'Higher Journeys' podcast where Alexis interviews Mary Rodwell reminds me of this old post I wrote in 2018 about cicadas -
I also listened to the latest
'New Thinking Allowed' podcast featuring another Australian named Brian Spittles (which is an anagram of Brain Spittles ... just saying;-).

I'm also reading the first book in the 'VALIS trilogy' at the moment ... again:-)
It certainly is more than a "nuts and bolts" world I reckon;-)
Immaculate (2024)
Ironically, I saw the movie 'Immaculate' last night at the cinema, and it was about genetic manipulation.

Radio Free Albemuth (VALISystem A)?πŸ“‘πŸ›°

"Radio Free Albemuth is a dystopian novel by Philip K. Dick, written in 1976 and published posthumously in 1985. Originally titled VALISystem A, it was his first attempt to deal in fiction with his experiences of early 1974. When his publishers at Bantam requested extensive rewrites he canned the project and reworked it into the VALIS trilogy. Arbor House acquired the rights to Radio Free Albemuth in 1985. They then published an edition under the current title (the original was too close to VALIS), prepared from the corrected typescript given by Dick to his friend Tim Powers."
I finally read/listened to the novel 'Radio Free Albemuth' this week and then rewatched my Kickstarter DVD I received as a reward back in 2014 for being one of the backers to get the film on cinema screens that year.

Kick-starter reward DVDs
I think the film was very faithful to the novel when I watched the movie yesterday.
I just can't work out why the movie isn't more available on streaming services like Amazon Prime or Tubi ... or any of the big streaming services?
I can understand the frustration of the Christian couple reviewing the movie in the video below, how one minute it's on Amazon Prime, and the next minute it's gone ... and that was in 2022 when that You Tube was posted.
I'm not a Christian, as these guys define what a Christian is, I was just curious to see their view and beliefs as far as their take on "Christianity" goes:-)
The world is full of Dickheads it would seem?
To be honest, I didn't like the book, but the movie makers did a good job of bringing the book to the screen, I thought.
The only novel I actually bought of Dick's and the first one I ever read is VALIS ... which I'm now about to re-read as the next of Dick's novels.
And I still have Dick's 'The Exegesis of Philip K Dick' to slog through once I make it through his novels ... God help me:-(

The Hi, Strangeness of Red Pill Junkie? πŸ€ΌπŸ’ŠπŸ›Έ

I almost flicked the 'Hi, Strangeness Podcast' from my Apple playlist after listening to the interview with my "old mate" "the owl guy" Mike Clelland, but the Universe must have had other plans for my ears, as I left it on my playlist long enough to hear my old mate RPJ get interviewed by Steve "the ice" Berg about his net history.
RPJ, like myself admits to being an introvert when it comes to the limelight of life on the WWW.
Mexican Radio Misterioso?
Red Pill Junkie: UFOs and Art, Baby!
I like to think of myself and RPJ as somewhat like AA sponsors who were there back in the day to stop Mike from jumping off that bridge, cliff, building, or whatever metaphor you might want to throw in for topping yourself.
Hey, been there nearly did that myself.
Not that I ever saw Mike as a potential suicide at the time, but it's quite clear listening to him over the years that maybe I should have asked if he was OK?
But those RUOK campaigns are pretty much BS to anyone who is really going to follow through, and I can tell you that from personal experience.
Things Go Better with cOKe?
I personally couldn't care less whether Big Foot is real or not ... as long as it don't turn up in my backyard at night when I'm out there throwing something in my wheelie bin:-)
I've written posts before about my view of the BS ... BF phenomena and I'm much the same on the UFO/UAP beliefs -
Maybe now it's safe to take the 'Hi, Strangeness Podcast' off my Apple Playlist?
I have to say if it wasn't for RPJ I might never hung around Mike's blog ... so you can blame RPJ Mike for that Aussie Arsehole hanging around for so long around your blog like flies around a piece of s#it;-)
I guess that analogy just gets me in more s#it with you Mike ... as far as friendshit ... ship goes?-)
But if you don't get Aussie humour, that's your problem:-)
I still like to think that your best years are ahead of you Mike, as far as what you came down here to do;-)
And I'm a
betting man.
