A new video shows a UFO that appeared to witnesses “as bright as a second sun” crossing the skies over the ECETI Ranch in Trout Lake Washington on the evening of Monday, June 27, 2011. The event was just one in a series of ongoing sightings that occurred during the previous four nights, captured in both visible light and infrared night vision using a stereo camera imaging system. The video also shows lights on Mt. Adams accompanied by mysterious flights over the peak, a UFO that disappears in mid-air while flying in clear skies, witnesses using lights to engage luminous vehicles, orbs swarming around a low-flying UFO and incredible acceleration when what appears to be an inter-dimensional spaceship makes a rapid exit.

One of the staples of Frankensteam’s Lab is the theme of the anomaly.

Anomalous objects in the sky–the ground has truth but–fly [me] away to worlds unknown–let [me] see their truth from the vantage point of [my] youth.

So without further ado–I give you Travis and “Side.”

[the band is]named…after the Harry Dean Stanton character Travis Henderson from the film Paris, Texas.

Travis isn’t paranoid are they–but the director of their video “Side” obviously is? In the video, which is  reminiscent of The X-Files, ends with the band abducted by aliens out in the desert.  The lyrics written by Fran Healy, to the Travis song Side in part go:

Well I believe there’s someone watching over you. They’re watching every single thing you say–they’ll set you down and take you through. You’ll realize one day that the grass is always greener on the other side. We all live under the same sky… There is no wrong, there is no right. The circle only has one side…

A marble bust of Caligula restored to its original colors. The colors were identified from particles trapped in the marble.

Contrary to popular belief, the Roman emperor Caligula; a redhead, we now know, did not marry his horse Incitatus, instead, suggested said beast be made a Roman Consul. The emperor, did in fact procured him a wife–a mare named Penelope. History is silent as to whether they were formally joined as stud and mare, but I imagine it must have been an ecstatic soi·rée.

Flash forward some 2000 years.

Wannabe senator J.D. Hayworth, currently giving Senator McCain, a run for his money in Arizona’s 2010 Senate race; thinks that a recent Massachusetts Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage could somehow “…lead to a man someday marrying his horse. ”  Who knows, Wilber. Maybe so, maybe no.

Seems like a trend here. Take (please) the apply named anti-choice anti-homo freak Neal Horsley, who actually admitted to having had sex with a mule–before he found Jesus! Well, that’s OK then.

Speaking of old movies, the legendary (ta FrankenSteam, anyway) ‘Pasoliniesque’ Italian film director Tinto Brass; Salon Kitty, has been hinting around at a re-make of his decades old film “Caligula,” in 3D! This hot on the heels of pots-of-money being made on films such as “Avatar” and “Alice In Wonderland.” No surprise, as Hollywood goes there the money goes. Yet Bass, who claims it was the Americans who tainted his mainstream porn movie, now strangely, looks to America again, in the guise of  technology, for vindication.

Tinto Brass, the 76-year-old Italian film-maker behind the notorious 1979 epic, announces plans to revisit project ‘ruined by Americans.’

Some advise, Direttore Brass, from the film underground;  don’t let ’em get their filthy hands on your work. They’ll just ‘cock’ it up like they did the last time.

Unrelentingly lurid and equally hilarious, Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America might be an X-ray of a rabid slacker’s seething brain… 48-minute[s]… of underground agitprop.

This nutty little item suggests that conspiracy thinking is a Frankenstein monster which inevitably destroys its creator (First you have the conspiracy theory, and then the conspiracy theory has you).

Categorized under: why is it doing that?  Remember that story back in 2002 where a coyote hopped on a commuter train in Portland?  Now they’re evolving! Growing and adapting to their new environs.

PORTLAND, OR — Authorities reported on Wednesday that a wild coyote was chased off the tarmac at Portland International Airport. The traveling prairie pooch, realizing that it wasn’t welcome to fly the friendly skies, proceeded to the Tri-Met Airport Terminal Station where it boarded the light-rail train bound for downtown.

After being refused airport service, traveling canine "Wiley" decided to take the Red Line train bound for downtown Portland.

The big bad coyote…er a make that a coywolf?  Coyotes and wolves, are mixing it up in the Eastern US–hybridizing themselves into a new species–punctuated evolution style.  “Word up dog!”

…mixing of coyote and wolf genes allowed the animal to rapidly evolve larger, more powerful jaws, better adapted to preying on whitetail deer.
