  Buffalo Tom was a Boston band which had a little bit of success in the early to mid 1990’s so here they are performing “Taillights Fade” live in 1992. The singer seems to have trouble keeping it in tune a couple of times in the middle.

    When we look back at things we ‘believed’ to be real & true – with more ‘experienced eyes’ to discern ‘truth from lies” – we find that we were fed more “lies” than “healthy Truth!” That’s the “way” it is today too. No wonder people are goony and frazzled.
    This is just a couple of examples of Big Lies that have yet to be cast out of people ‘thinking’ as true. You can think of more – images that come to mind, also significant.
    When bound by lies and deception, being ‘released’ from the madness is a relief – “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of TRUTH …” makes us free and alive!

        It seems strange that we would no longer have the technology to go to the moon, do they really expect us to believe we had it but didn’t think it was important enough to protect?!

      This just doesn’t make “sense”, but it proves the point of the “lie” = crazy making rather than the “soundness and confidence found in unchanging Truth.”
      NASA Astronaut Says “We Can’t Go Back To The Moon, We Don’t Have That Technology Anymore”
      This mental vision comes to mind: changing trains. When you discover the one your on isn’t going where you want to go, you disembark & get onboard the one that is! But, ‘knowing’ “where” one wants to go, and end up, is important! If one’s deceived to think things are the ‘way’ the Liars purport them to be their idea of “where” probably doesn’t exist. Fabrication and illusion, smoke and mirrors. Or ‘holly wood’ stage wand magic.
      There are the ‘wise’, and there’s the ‘fools’. The ‘wise seek and choose truth’ because they know real Life can be found there, where the fools know not the ‘truth’ nor seek it, thinking its for “chumps” ~ just like “honesty”.

      I think you are right, they do give us a little truth within the lies to make it more believable and harder to discern the truth from the lies.
      That was an interesting picture that zoomed in on the shadow on the space helmet where you could see the photographer, I hadn’t seen that one before.
      I have seen videos of the moon rover where the moon dust is not shot up in the air as you think it would be with zero gravity.

    With your invitation to comment on any issue I couldn’t help but post the following: Ad we all should know by now Starbucks screwed up royally with the racebaiting situation in Philly.
    Here’s what the corporation coulda shoulda done:
    As you media people surely know Starbucks employs (these are made up figures by me) 25,000 people in the YS and while the black population is roughly 12% of the country’s population they makeup 50% of our workforce. And as you all know Starbucks does not discriminate in any way, shape or form. What we do have is a policy calling for patrons only use of our dining areas and bathrooms. If this bothers the race hustling poverty pimps who make their living from blackmailing corporations why then we can shut down Starbucks and maybe AlSharpton’s Rainbow Coalitioncan fund jobs for the out of work blacks. And a message to the rest of you reverse discriminating American Corporations grow some balls. End.
    From what is being reported urban city Starbucks have become cesspools for the homeless and the drug trade while driving away paying”normal” customers thanks to their new policy.

      Now that would have been interesting to see! It is all about intimidation and thug tactics nowadays and just once wouldn’t you love to see somebody fight back?

    How we’re enticed to ‘want’ this to be ‘the future reality’ ~ Transhumanism Enlightenment. “You can be as the gods” is what got Eve. She said, after the fact, that the ‘liar beguiled her’ to believe she wouldn’t die and have special powers. The same con goes on today, using “digital imagery” along with “lying words”. Where Eve wanted to be as the “angles,” the serpent desires to be greater and over God, higher and more powerful than the Creator who made him [Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. Genesis 3:1]

    God already had a ‘plan’ before time and the world began, for humans to be ‘higher than the angles’: “Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?” 1 Corinthians 6:3
    The serpent presents something less than what God Promises, and calls it “more.” But he’s a liar. God already planned the BEST for us who believe Him, and made Eternity (& an Eternal body) available to ‘whosoever’ desires Him, The Son = the Truth!
    “… but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

    Lightening things up 🙂 Eyes to see Good!

    ‘The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11:6
    ‘The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD .Isaiah 65:25
