SH Korikawa N.A.S.A. Space Station (1959)
Manufactured in Japan in 1959 the item is a metal toy with plastic parts and sadly when purchased from a second-hand goods store was missing a window. It is extremely rare, more so because the majority of the ones that can be found (if found at all) are silver, wherein this one is red indicating that its a very early version of the toy and therefore much more valuable. Sadly the box it was contained in was in very poor condition at point of purchase. Reportedly its worth thousands.

          Cheap Little Punks Destroy Model Railroad Exhibition for Fun
          Those of you who enjoy model work and especially diorama's will know that it takes many hours, sometimes hundreds of hours to get them looking just right. Some diorama's feature trains and tracks and all that goes with them and well, that's the point of this story. Imagine if you will that a number of model railway fans had laid out their work in a school hall prior to a show and overnight four little fuckwits who don't give a shit about anyone but themselves broke in and systematically trashed the place, destroying many thousands of pounds worth of irreplaceable landscapes, tracks, trains and rolling stock on the night of May 17th/18th 2019 and they were subsequently caught on the site by the police after doing all this damage, yet what did they get? A quick trip to the local police station and questioned before being released on conditional bail while ''further inquiries'' took place. Why do this? They caught the little shits red-handed in the building and evidence that they had broken in and yet they were allowed to go? To me this makes no sense and its a personal fucking insult to all of the people whose work and models were destroyed. If you actually knew the price of railway model stuff you would be outraged - an engine can cost hundreds, rolling stock is equally expensive and even the most simple of trackside buildings can be the better part of a weeks wages for a single structure. If you're moved by this, contact Brian Norris, Secretary of the Market Deeping, Lincolnshire Model Railway Club and ask for more details. They're seeking donations at the moment but frankly handing over money isn't going to solve this one - and in the meantime the fucks who did all the damage are probably laughing their heads off that they are considered menaces to society.

          Ex-CIA Man turns Traitor for $25,000
          What is the price of treachery these days? Reportedly a former Central Intelligence Agency officer named Kevin Mallory (62) formerly of Leesburg, Virginia who was native fluent in spoken and written Mandarin Chinese choose to supplement his pay by giving the Chinese intelligence services access to very high level information. At the time of his treachery and the breaking of his oath, Mallory had high level clearance and access to very sensitive data which he subsequently passed on. His actions were discovered, he was charged and in a mere two weeks was seen, the evidence given and sentenced to twenty years for his crime. Paid a mere $25,000 for selling out, this means that he can contemplate how he threw his life away for a lousy $104 a month for the next two decades.

          U.S.A.F. F-16 Slams into Warehouse
          Reportedly the pilot of a F-16 fighter jet worth $18.8 million bailed out and his plane subsequently slammed into the roof of a warehouse near Los Angeles, California. The pilot landed without issue, parachuting to safety and the plane's penetration of the warehouse roof did little other damage and none of the five people inside and nearby were killed or badly injured. The fire that the jets fuel created was quickly put out by the buildings fire suppression system. It is unknown if the plane was armed with missiles or live ammunition at the time of the incident and as to why it dropped out of the sky - that's still up for debate.

          Politics is a Dirty Business
          And that's why I don't trust or even like any politician no matter their leanings. This week it was revealed that Heinz-Christian Strache, the Vice-Chancellor of Austria was secretly filmed in what appears to be the act of offering government contracts in exchange for political support to a woman who it was claimed was a 'Russian investor'. He also seems to hint at a potentially illegal donation for the far-right 'freedom party' he leads. Now no doubt he will receive the mandatory slapped wrist and everyone will forget he's a criminal.
A major problem began for me in the opening days of October 2018 when an elderly woman (chain-smoker, covered in tattoos and alleged by her own daughter to be a 'former drug dealer') moved into the apartment below my own and decided that having her television on at a level that meant it could be heard clearly and loudly in my own apartment and sixty feet (and two room partitions made of brick over) from the actual set was perfectly acceptable (for 'acceptable' see the instance where I asked her at one A.M. one morning to turn it down because I was trying to sleep and she snapped back "put some earplugs in!") And this same situation has been on-going, daily for seven and a half months now and every time I reported these incidents nobody gave so much as a shit and failed to investigate or take action that terminated such instances. In fact, the laughable ''out of hours noise service'' did not want to come out and investigate and the police don't want to know. Sure, if somebody was dealing drugs I would have a dozen panda cars in the street outside, but mention a senior citizen producing enough noise that it sounds like a Iron Maiden concert and nobody gives a shit - despite the fact the law is being broken.

Want to know what it feels like? Get a stereo or a television, put it in the same room with you and then turn it up as loud as possible and then lock yourself in that room. In my case my whole apartment is like that when she switches on her television and the only way not to hear it is to physically leave. When I say 'lock yourself in' its to make a point that my own home isn't quiet and I get no peace there. For months I had to go to bed when she wanted me too because until she switched the set off it was impossible to sleep, and some days get up when she wanted me too because I would be blasted into consciousness. Frankly what is being done to me, even now, is a direct violation of my basic human rights yet my local council has chosen to shit on those rights and all environmental laws governing how much noise a person has to tolerate.

I've spent the last couple of months and more recently the last couple of weeks trying to speak to my local council about that situation that has been on-going here at my home and I've noticed with an increasing regularity that there is one constant with bureaucrats and that's if they don't like what you have to say they don't reply when asked a question and have a real nasty tendency to ignore the question itself, to say nothing of the person asking it. And these are the people who somehow were given jobs whose core mechanism is to allegedly to assist and help the people who they are supposed to be representing? I actually had one meeting in my own home very recently in which two female local government representatives repeatedly told me, somewhat fervently that I was in the wrong and they were in the right despite evidence to the contrary about excessive noise being forced on me against the law and their own council handbook by the neighboring residence and nothing I said or proved would convince them otherwise. The fact that they visited when the woman downstairs was sleeping and did not have her television set on was no doubt the cause of their ignorance. I have found such visits to be very toxic and unsettling because of it.

That said, these two (or any other council employee) have never been in my home when the television was so loud it could clearly be heard AND RECORDED through eighteen inches of reinforced concrete and often very late at night well after the legally enforced cut-off period and despite my reporting this noise and keeping a log as they requested, my reports were universally ignored by the very agencies that were supposed to act on them (and laughably at the moment I'm supposed to keep a log of incidents and turn it in ONCE A MONTH - why bother? They don't give a shit and a whole month has passed since the incident, so its just another 'joke' way to keep me busy while they ignore me - but I do keep a log and post it publically here at deviantART, updated daily showing severity of noise). And in another conversation when I happened to mention that excessive noise was so painful for me that I had no choice but to leave my own home to get away from it one of the aforementioned persons actually had the fucking nerve to tell me that I was in the wrong and the stimuli that I was discussing 'wasn't real' that I was using an excuse and in doing so denied me my viewpoint and ignored the fallout that she directly created by allowing the perpetrator of the problem to cause me seven and a half months of non-stop anxiety and stress leading to physical impairment (damaging my health) and in the process allowed the person creating this situation to break the law on a daily basis for that whole period.

This same person later exclaimed with some irritation and emotion when I asked for help with another problem to blurt out that "we're already bending over backwards to help you!" Not very professional if you ask me and frankly evidence of utter incompetence and a ''I'm alright jack'' (fuck you) attitude that is evidence of what happens when persons such as this think that they can dictate to their residents how they can live. If these two incompetents had any honor at all they would have accepted that a real problem exists and that the perpetrator of the non-stop noise was breaking the law and do something about it, but no. In acting as they have they have not solved the problem - they have become a part of it.

But I know why they've done this and its simple. The perpetrator is elderly and in poor health and it would look very bad for them politically (to say nothing of the whole council) if they enforced this one walking ASBO (anti-social behavior order) and forced her to wear headphones at any time (as they are required to do UNDER LAW) when she wants to listen to her television at a volume that can clearly be heard upstairs and in neighboring apartments but no, its easier to go after me and repeatedly tell me that I'm the problem while the woman creating the problem remains untouched. How is that ever right? Still it does not matter now. I've had seven and a half months to collect sufficient evidence (physical and otherwise) to sue the living shit out of certain parties and have already received paid consultation level legal advice that indicates that I have a open and shut case of what amounts to incompetence and in doing in effect being directly responsible for physical and mental harm to myself, and in ignoring the problem in the hopes that it would ''go away'' but I'm not for going away - and the person making the noise isn't ever going to change.

Summing up ... trying to talk to them is like speaking at a wall, with repeated 'check ups' to see if they assimilated the request or concern the first, second, third, fourth, etc. times and feeling as if you're not getting anywhere at all. Anyway, I'll be busy for the next week or so - I'm moving all of my stuff out so I can have new carpets laid down and that's also generating stress for me. But once its done, its done and no need to worry about it again for a decade or so and I can move my stuff out of storage and back into here once more.

Get ready to go to warp as Star Trek: Picard is ready to hit the screens. Starring Sir Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, former commanding officer of the U.S.S. Stargazer and the U.S.S. Enterprise (D) and U.S.S. Enterprise (E) the series will put Picard back in a turtleneck and jacket (a look that I felt made him look like he was ready for a seniors home) but seeing as the actor who plays the role is now seventy-eight we can only assume Star Fleet Medical is giving him rejuve shots but the good Captain is now starting to look his age. As you may recall, he rose to prominence for his role as Picard between 1987-94 and in the spin-off movies until 2002 when we last saw him in the role in Star Trek: Nemesis, plus appearances as his character (and his Borg alter-ego) on other shows and his portrayal practically killed his career as everyone saw him as Picard (its known as the ''Captain ... Kirk ... Curse'') until he was given a chance to play in X-Men.

He was once quoted as saying:
"It came to a point where I had no idea where Picard began and I ended. We completely overlapped. His voice became my voice, and there were other elements of him that became me" No director in Hollywood wanted to cast him, he was this grand, deep-voiced, bald English guy (I do not wish to argue with the Sir Stewart but Jean-Luc was French and just happened to speak with an English accent which I always found amusing) because everybody knew he was Picard and couldn't possibly ever be anybody else in the eyes of the public. In the event, he effectively reprised the part as Professor Charles Xavier – a grand, deep-voiced, bald English guy – in the X-Men films. You may be interested to know that a biography of the good Captain exists and it fills in a lot of the blanks about his upbringing, his family life and his thoughts on his encounters and missions, especially in regards to the Stargazer and of course when he was forced to become a member of the Borg Collective.

At the moment all we know is that it has been rumored as being like a ten-episode movie and that it
might run for three seasons. Jonathan Frakes is onboard as one of the directors so we know at least its in good hands.
Available initially on CBSAllAccess in the United States its only a matter of time before it is assimilated into DVD and Blu-Ray but it will also be broadcast in the United Kingdom.

I don't know about you but at eleven years of age I had a pretty good grasp of reality but not everyone is like me, and some people want to believe the world is anything other than what it is for their own reasons. Perhaps this explains why a eleven year old girl simply identified as Victoria wrote to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern with five bucks in the envelope who she wanted to donate towards researching dragons and to pay for her to become psychic so she could train dragons. Sadly, Mrs. Ardern was forced to write back, sending the cash back in the process, with a letter on an official letterhead stating that the government did not at that time have any intention of researching dragons or psychic phenomena.

But I'll bet UFOs are still hot property, eh?

THAT'S RIGHT - I DO NOT POSSESS A NECK. Therefore I'm immune to vampyres.

"If my universe had a theme tune which defined it, its danger, the sheer hostility of it all, it would be the music The Fall from the album 'Total Recall' (2012) as it portrays the urgency and energy of things and the sheer ruthlessness of this dark universe. Make no mistake, Fallen Worlds isn't Star Wars or Star Trek, its dark, its violent and I create vessels and hardware to reflect that fact as best as I can.'' ~ Jonathan Bluestone, February 2018
