Updates to the store are overwhelming

I just wanted to give a real quick store update. I have been hustling on the store upgrades. I finally have the embroidery patches and button-pins totally updated. It feels good to have the bulk of the work completed. I am very happy with how the look and feel of the store is coming together.

You will also notice that those business cards finally came in. I am happy with how they turned out. I got them for two reasons. One, to pass out when the opportunity randomly arises. But mostly, I got them so as to help generate traffic to the site via the store by adding the card to my outgoing orders.

The next major store related task is going to be the screen print punk patches. Once I get that portion of the store updated to match the rest of what is going on, I will be done messing with it for a while. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but as a designer I am a stickler for continuity and consistency. With that, I have still yet to take the new photos for my punk patches. I still have yet to decide how I will do that while keeping the same theme going.

If you haven’t already, be sure to go visit the store and take a look at the updates that have been going on.

Space, the final frontier of discrepancies

I am no scientist, nor do I claim to have any bit a smarts in me wee-pea-brain. But, I can’t help but look at the following images and ask myself if NASA seems to have some continuity issues here. Observationally speaking, the images below don’t really match up.

space1.png

I just can’t help but notice the dissimilarities here. Look at how much closer those rings seem to have gotten while also becoming more in tune with how they would act if gravitational attraction on a cosmic scale were an actual factor. What I mean by that is this… the photo on the left seems to suggest that the rings are somehow offset from the sphere, and as a result somehow defy the way that gravity is supposed to act in the vacuum of space.

Come to think of it, I have looked at Saturn a few times in my life through a telescope. And not once have I ever observed its rings in a geometrical formation around the sphere such as the 2016 NASA photo seems to suggest. No, instead I have always observed it to be much like what we see in the image on the left (offset; defying the centrifugal momentum gravity would place on the rings). Why is it that this inconsistency exists? Why is it that what NASA shows us regarding this celestial body does not match what we can actually observe on our own when looking through a telescope? Apparently, the more expensive your telescope, the more it effects where the rings are positioned in relation to Saturn as a sphere.

Seems logical…

But it doesn’t stop there. If you go back and look at any of the images from 1960 and compare them to today’s NASA images, there are a lot of things that don’t seem to line up. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that the “quality” of a photo changes the way that the image will appear. I understand how focus works. I’ve used a camera. That will however… not change the shape or features of the image to the degree that we see here.

Apparently, when you increase the resolution of an image the shape of that image and its features also change. I didn’t know that was how it worked. How ignorant of me. Speaking of shapes… the science people of today seem to suggest that the earth isn’t actually round at all. None of the planets are, apparently. Nope… they are oblate. And according to good ol’ Neil, the earth is pear shaped, because that makes sense.

If that is true, then why are all of the NASA images of any planet showing us something perfectly round? As you can see in the photo on the left of Jupiter, it doesn’t appear to be a perfect circle (which goes along with what scientists tell us about the shape of the earth and other heavenly bodies today). Why then are all of the photos of every planet including the earth perfectly spherical in shape today? They are either round or they aren’t. They can’t be both. Someone needs to get with Neil and Bill to clear all of that up.

Anyway, I feel like this rant has run its course. I just don’t feel that the drastic differences we see in the above images should exist over such a short amount of time. Something has got to give. Either the images from the 60’s were forged… or the images from today are forged. And since I can look through a telescope on my own and see roughly the same thing that was shown in the 60’s, I am inclined to agree with them. On the other hand, I can drop today’s NASA images into Photoshop and by changing the opacity to show where most NASA “photos” have been cropped, edited, or cloned in some way (making them no longer a photo, but a composite – which is a fancy way of saying, drawing). With that, I am more inclined to believe that the images provided to use today are the ones that are fake.

Having said that, here you go… rant actually over. Space is fake.

Someone explain these inconsistencies, please.

And if your attempt of an explanation is simply Googling one phrase, clicking the first video you find, and sending it to me… nice try, but no thanks. If you actually started looking closer at this stuff, you would be asking these types of questions, too.

But who are we kidding… right? I am ignorant.

Art and friends at church

Well, as it turns out one of my friends at church is actually pretty freaking legit at drawing. With that in mind I talked them into sending me one of their sketches so that I could bring it to life with a little color and pizzazz. I think it turned out pretty good considering the fact that what I had to work with was already great to being with.

Not sure if this will end up heading anywhere, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we both team up in the near future with some more collaboration sketches that potentially turn into something bigger like zines or DIY comics. Could be pretty sweet if you ask me.

More details on this to come as it develops in its own timing.

Is the mark of the beast already here – 2017

Revelation 13:16-17 – And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

April 8th, 2017

An ultra-trendy co-working space in central Stockholm is offering microchip implants to its 2,000 members, in order to help them open doors or operate office equipment. The implants have become so popular, the work space stages regular parties where attendees can get “chipped.

And before you point out that some of these people are getting it in their left hand rather than their right, please remember the bible says that he will force you to take the mark at some point. Right now, those that are taking this mark are doing it willingly. There is a difference.

June 15th, 2017

It’s not only starting to ramp up in the US this year, but overseas as well.

With all of this in mind, I would point out a post I did a few days ago regarding the removal of physical cash in 2018 with the aid of bitcoin.

This stuff has been on the cusp of taking of for nearly a decade now. News agencies like CNN and NBC have been telling us that this type of technology was headed our way for a while now. Well, it is finally here… right on top of us. There are a lot of other examples to look at. For starters there are a few large night clubs both in the states and abroad that use the rfid chip as a way to allow VIP members to skip the line at the door while also having rapid access to the bar. Some of these clubs also have what is called rfid implant parties.

Another example of how this thing has grown is what one spokesperson for an American based company had to say while chipping its employees this year. “When we came across this and saw it being used in other societies, we said why not us?

This means that it is already being used elsewhere to a large degree.

I am sorry, but I guess I am ignorant and I just don’t get it. Why would I be okay with going into a society where they have that much control over the populous? If they don’t like you for any one reason they can just turn off your chip (no more buying… no more selling).

This photo taken 10 May 2002 shows the VeriChip, w

Now, I am in no way suggesting that this rfid chip is without a doubt the mark of the beast. I have no personal way of knowing that for sure. No one does. All I am pointing out with this blog post is to what degree it has built up steam in the last 8 months worldwide.

With that in mind, I can’t help but wonder how many Americans have this implant already. With the drastic rise in articles like this one  popping up recently I wouldn’t be surprised if the average was currently something like 1 in 30.

But hey, what do I know? I’m just ignorant. Keep on keeping on and let big brother make your decisions for you. Because, before long regardless of whether its the rfid chip or not, there is coming a day when he will cause ALL to partake in just such a venture.

Final Point – please note that it says “to receive a mark in” and not “to receive a mark on“.

Revelation 13:16-17 – And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

 

The Etsy Store is getting some major upgrades

So, I have a couple of supper crazy updates with the Etsy store. I recently got a new patch design up on the store for starters. It’s pretty epic if you ask me. I am stepping away from doing just circles and am going to start designing patches that are a variety of shapes to help mix things up in the store.

Other than that I have been doing a lot of major updates to the store. Not only have I changed the look and feel of the store to match my new website design, but I have also changed the name of the store to match that as well. With the store name now totally changed to match my website I wanted to take things a step further by tackling the analytics to help with search results (something any avid online merchant should do from time to time).

Analytics.jpg

So far I have been cranking through that just fine and have already seen a drastic increase in sales from what little adjustments have already been made. As of today I have tackled the analytics for the embroidery patches on the store. I still need to do the analytics for the buttons and screen print patches. But, for right now I need a break. Doing this type of junk is supper time consuming. Since I have gotten a lot done with the look, feel, and analytics of the store, I thought I would completely finish up my embroidery section by updating the photos.

This is where the frustration comes in.

I cannot for the life of me get my camera to take a good picture. Although these look clean, I am not at all happy with them. But that isn’t the aggravating part. What frustrates me is that I have a specific look and feel that I am hoping to go for, but it just isn’t going to happen with my cell phone camera. No way, no how. The upside-downside to this is that I do have a great friend at church who does photography for a living. She could totally set me up and have the listings in my store looking jam-tastic.

The only issue with that is this…

If and when I add a listing to the store I don’t want to have to depend on her or bug her each and ever time I have a new listing get added. It just wouldn’t be fair to her nor productive for either of us.

If I am going to come up with a solution to this issue, I need to be able to replicate the look I am going for at home on my own time with what camera I have. Sadly, the camera I have isn’t that great.

Anyway, Etsy store rant over… I have been tackling a lot over at the store if you wanted to go in and see the updates. I hope to have two new patch designs posted in another month. And hopefully soon I will get this photo taking issue lined out. Once I have done that and have the embroidery section totally knocked out, I will move over to the buttons and screen prints.

Oh, and another update… will be adding stickers soon also! So, there’s that.

Bitcoin – 2018 Predicted in 1988 and space rocks

I do not at all claim to know anything about bitcoin and I realize that a lot of people have probably already seen this Economist Magazine cover from 1988. So, with that… I realize that this is nothing new. That does not however change the fact that it is right around the corner. 2018 is only a few months away (2018 being on the bottom of the coin in the cover art).

bitcoin.png

With that in mind I am curious to see what happens with the current global currency system (debit/credit/paper). I find the cover art for the magazine to be rather interesting. The burning money and the phoenix. The fact this bird in particular represents death and rebirth and the evolution of a renewed dying system. The zero with the dash in the middle of it more than likely is based in numerology and mathematics, meaning empty set (out with the old and in with the new). I however find it rather odd that this same symbol in several languages is a representation for light.

Revelation 13:16-17And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Now, obviously this bitcoin system will not be the mark (which I believe will be a physical mark). However, I do find it funny that the current bitcoin talk on the web is that it is seemingly fail-proof (you can’t just print more money and that they will set a cap on how much is in circulation). With that in mind, you better believe there will a false flag very shortly after switching from the old system over to this one… which will in turn give way to the excused needed to actually implement a physical mark. Here is a blog post I recently wrote that shows of a similar system already being implemented overseas.

This stuff is coming faster than most people realize. Does that mean that the end will happen in my lifetime? I don’t know… no ones does. What I can say however is this; it wouldn’t surprise me if it did.

With that in mind I find it hilarious that we have people like Stephen Hawking predicting the end of the world. It seems like every time he talks on this topic, the time gets shorter and shorter.

“We are running out of space and the only places to go to are other worlds. It is time to explore other solar systems. Spreading out may be the only thing that saves us from ourselves. I am convinced that humans need to leave Earth,” – Stephen Hawking 

According to good ol’ Steve, we need to abandon earth of face extinction within the next few decades. Since he seems to think we need to leave, I have to ask… where does he expect us to go?

Because, Bill Nye seems to think there is nowhere to go! And honestly, I agree…

Anyway… I say all of that to say this one last thought to help kind of tie it all back together. The 2018 magazine reference and the upsurge in bitcoin isn’t going to solve anything. All it is going to do is usher in the excuse needed to implement a physical marking system for economical coherency in this rapidly changing world.

There is a reason why all of this is suddenly ramping up. Because time is running out.

So, the question is… what does global currency have to do with space exploration, Stephen Hawking predicting the end of days, and the signs of the times? Exactly that… time.

Timing is everything. And it is all unfolding simultaneously.

Revelation 6:16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.    

Sorry, Stephen… but trying to hide on another rock isn’t going to help.
