I took this photo last night leaving a local diner with my wife and son, Ayden. We took him there for some celebratory ice cream for his 6th birthday.. A shocking and dazzling array of clouds formed as the late winter sun set.. it was unusually warm, it was actually quite beautiful.. And this image, to me at least, is a striking homage to small town America.. memories of childhood.. nostalgia of days gone. Simple times. Birthday ice cream..
And days that go by faster than a small twist with sprinkles melts in a dish..
Happy 6th Ayden.

THE SEASON begins to win: OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY winning against MOANA in early box office numbers. But it’s weak.. and the Disney picture still has a chance to win.. back to the ugly sweaters of the raunchy OFFICE: It brought in $6.6 million as of Friday and is expected to finish the weekend at about $17 million.

Thanksgiving weekend in Chicago dust clearing: 8 dead and 58 injured.. the city’s homicide rate at a 10 year high.. this is a crisis of horrid proportions that few in the major media ever even talk about ..

Moana topped the extended holiday box office with the second largest five-day Thanksgiving opening of all-time and the third largest three-day Thanksgiving opening of all-time, leading a top twelve that grossed a combined $173 million. Moana was, however, the only real success story..
Scientists claim: West Antarctic ice shelf is breaking up from the inside out.. // It’s generally accepted that it’s no longer a question of whether the West Antarctic Ice Sheet will melt, it’s a question of when,” said study leader Ian Howat, associate professor of earth sciences at Ohio State. “This kind of rifting behavior provides another mechanism for rapid retreat of these glaciers, adding to the probability that we may see significant collapse of West Antarctica in our lifetimes.”

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 25 2016
AND THEY’RE OFF!
Black Friday 2016
Every year we see things like this.. this year, the Black Friday fight appears to be .. over.. towels.. VIDEO PROOF.. Here.
REVENGE OF THE 20TH CENTURY! Early black Friday winners includes… wait for it… DEPARTMENT STORES!

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 24 2016
Gobble until you wobble.. Eat until defeat.. avoid the political talk and the Donald Trump heat..It has been a while since I did a news run down . . no better time than a holiday to get that running. For your viewing displeasure or regurgitation, the latest goings-on across the world on this Thanksgiving..
Retailers yet again are putting hopes in brick and mortar.. one of these years it will be for the last time. My local mall this year may have its last rush if it even gets one. The idea of black Friday has changed considerably… perhaps it’s time to give off for ‘cyber Monday’ instead of the traditional.. Nonetheless, here are the 5 things you should expect from Black Friday if you’re a shopper..
But here is a strange trend to grapple with mentally; Of all of the people who are more inclined to stand in line on Black Friday, the millennials once again take the prize. . they are much more likely than baby boomers to do it. Perhaps there is hope for brick and mortar after all!?
Always recall this when discovering history: Ignorance is usually bliss.. On this Thanksgiving, it’s easier to devour a pumpkin pie with TURKEY NOT knowing this: Abraham Lincoln declared in 1863 that Thanksgiving Day would be a national holiday on the last Thursday in November. He also ordered troops to march against Sioux Indian..
It’s not over!!? Clinton fans want a recount in the battleground states!
Lecturer in Chief: Donald Trump tells Tim Cook directly that he wants Apple products made in the United States and gives word of heavy tax incentives to do so.. It is interesting.. the president and Congress may not really have power to force private companies to do anything, but Trump of all people could surely do public shaming and go on nationwide TV and call out CEOs by name for not, according to his logic, making America Great Again..
Beebs gone wild: Bieber accused of punching a fan.. But .. for the first time perhaps ever, I am going to rush to Justin’s defense.. A group of screaming fans are greeting the car containing Bieber when a man sticks his hand in the window and appears to touch the singer.
Bieber’s hand can then be seen making contact with the man’s face. Perhaps deservedly so..
Kanye West gone wild: According to the normally reliable TMZ, the situation is worse than sleep and water problems for the star.. A well-connected Kanye source tells us Kanye’s psychological problems are significant enough so that his insurance policy — which covers lost profits and financial obligations for cancelled concerts due to illness — will almost certainly cover the losses for the 21 concerts he’s cancelled … But it still seems very strange that the moment West began slamming JAY-Z and publicly supporting Donald Trump, the white coats took him away ‘ha ha, ha ha’.. (pause for appreciation on the old song reference)
Miley Cyrus desperate for attention on Instagram..
MOANA is heading for a very large $88 million or more Thanksgiving weekend opening.. My wife and I already took our son to see the film.. It may have been (being honest here) one of the best animated Disney movies in a very long time. The music was amazing, the message was great.. the film was not boring during any point. It is the perfect movie for a long Thanksgiving weekend. So good, maybe my son will even want to see it again. I recommend MOANA for anyone who needs an escape from family and friends and .. reality..
On the other hand, the movie TROLLS was less than desirable. I had hoped for more.
And on a final note about movies.. I realized recently that since having a child, the chances of me going to see a sci-fi, horror, or action movie have diminished considerably, going instead to children’s flicks. But you know what? I think I’m actually quite okay with that..
Three are critical and 9 in intensive care in Australia after rare thunderstorm asthma.. Doctors were amazed there were not more fatalities given the numbers of people who suffered cardiac arrests and struggled to breathe when a wild thunderstorm struck Melbourne on Monday night, Victoria state Health Minister Jill Hennessy said.The storm caused rain-sodden ryegrass pollen to explode and disperse over the city, with ruptured particles penetrating deep into lungs. Almost one third of patients who suffered asthma attacks on Monday reported never having asthma before..

The RIO games over.. The final conclusion may be that these were the dullest Olympics ever to air.. and speaking of airing, the criticism is hardcore for NBC, which seemingly messed up the coverage from day one..

Despite the bad ratings, one person thinks they may have been the best Olympics in all of history..
The world’s largest glass bridge over the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon bridge in China.. And 8000 tourists showed up on day 1..

I watched the movie SLEEPERS early today on HBO.. Truly forgot what a monumental and amazing 1996 movie it was.. still watchable the same way today as it was when I was 16.. the ‘true story’ aspect caused me to research that a bit more to spark my memory.. Found this link too.. As far as the truth? Perhaps all of the similar revelations from various ‘respected’ societal institutions that have arisen since 1996 can give you the clue as to whether SLEEPERS was true. I say it was..

What does John Carpenter think of the 1980s slasher movies? Appearing on author Brett Easton Ellis’ podcast, Carpenter said: It just doesn’t rise above its cheapness. I think the reason that all these slasher movies came in the ’80s was a lot of folks said “look at that ‘Halloween’ movie. It was made for peanuts, and look at the money it’s made! We can make money like that. That’s what the teenagers want to see.” So they just started making them, cranking them out…most of them were awful.

Real news has been pretty harsh as of late.. I just read an article about a child, too close to home, who killed himself because of bullying at his school.. he was 12. Twelve.. a young beautiful child.. at 12 .. dead because of hateful words and evil messages ..
This life isn’t long. It is filled with rage and over zealous self righteousness .. Let’s get a little real and get a little better. Nice guys finish last? Who the hell cares. Be proud at the final before you succumb to nightmares of grief and pain being number 1.

1 (800) 273-8255.
The number is 24/7
With that being said, here’s a burst of news. Mostly entertainment. At least we know it’s fake.
Maybe it is best if the government stopped tweeting.. This one now involves the State Department telling people not to look ugly.. Clearly social medi has its benefits. I for one, though, think government should be dull, boring, and to the point. . . Let the social media for night work. Day time needs to be as sterile an environment as you can get.. That’s just me, maybe.
Stuff that nightmares are made of.. PVC-clad models clutch demonic dolls and sprout devil’s horns in bizarre Chinese catwalk show.. Maybe an exorcism is necessary..
The NILE runs red in a new satellite photo.. But it’s not real: It was created by the satellite Sentinel-3A, which uses a radiometer to measure visible and infrared energy. In short, the red hue of the river represents vegetation, not an allegory from the Bible.. But it undoubtedly messes with some people’s emotions ..
