EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN
EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN
... with COVID lurking on every street corner, behind every door, hiding in every crevice, poised to jump out and yell "BOO!"
My Uncle Jim, who is 5 years older than I, and my now-deceased cousin Bob -- to whom Jim was uncle but also good buddy (they being close in age) -- went door-knocking on Hallowe'en with no costumes ("kid stuff"), just masks, shopping bags for carting away their loot, and a rattled-off well-worn rhyming mantra:
Black and Gold, Black and Gold, Nothing in Between -
When the World Turns Black and Gold, then it's Hallowe'en.
In those days it wasn't "trick or treat", it was more a case of having to give to get. So some kids tap-danced, others sang songs, and Jim and Bob, now being above childish things, recited the poem in unison, rapidly and monotonously, but nevertheless given credit for effort and rewarded with goodies.
The complete poem, attributed to Nancy Byrd Turner (1880-1971) is here.
Many years later, when I lived in Ottawa, some fellow apartment dwellers decided one year to dress up in costumes to greet the kids that would arrive for treats. I own a nice collection of eerie music and my job was simply to keep it playing all evening on my laptop.
At the last moment, I decided to dress up as a witch, to add a bit more spookiness. Yes, that's me at the bottom of this page. Scary huh? (I hope the photo on my About Page is a bit less terrifying.)
Well, the really weird thing was that kids would come and sit beside me and chat me up as if I were a nice, normal person. In other words, nothing about Hallowe'en scared them; not the music, not the ugly witch. It was, as we say now, "all good".
Nobody ever feared Hallowe'en -- until now. You can't trust anything out there! There could be invisible COVID on those treats!!!!! Nevertheless, Hallowe'en began early this year, at school opening. Turns out that even your friends are dangerous; so is your teacher; so might also be the pencil you pick up or the paper you write on. Geez, I'm wanting my Mommy just thinking about it!
Hallowe'en 2020 is the spookiest ever because our kids were taught to be afraid of just about everything, well in advance of the season. They now know there's something invisible lurking on every street corner, hiding inside even your best friends and favourite relatives, lurking in candy from strangers, that could kill you when least expected.
And even if I dressed up as a kindly angel they would not, could not sit close beside me.
There's no longer any fun at all in masks, especially the sinister black ones that politicians have taken to hiding behind on auspicious occasions -- and forgetting all about at other times. Covid has brought into the spotlight those true "leaders" who, seeing themselves as elite, don't tend to sport the colourful masks you see in supermarkets (except maybe Dr. Fauci, a real trend-setter); their face-coverings are often black, which is weird because their basic fixation is gold (money, moola, wealth, riches ...) and everything they think and do derives from that.
Black and Gold, Black and Gold, nothing in between.
They play the game; they recite the lines most guaranteed to produce the required result, and for some, no rehearsal is needed; it just comes naturally. Yes, they do care about kids; their own, presumably. But if some other kids have to suffer long-term emotional effects because their parents took the meme seriously, them's the breaks. Nothing in between.
Pardon my annoying skepticism, but when Science Magazine wanted to aid in making the public accept the mask as a virtual body part, it chose a somewhat questionable cheerleader: the "top Chinese Scientist", George Gao, director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
How do we know he's "the top"? Well, SciMag doesn't seem to want to say it, but the attendees at Event 201 would say, oh for sure; he was among the "Players" at the big Event that kick-started the momentum toward a mandatory vaccine climax.
Here's Dr. Gao's handsome face and prodigious technical output, not to mention various awards, and including that he has applied for and obtained more than 25 UK, US, and Chinese patents.
Make what you will of his Bio, but the word "patents" gives me a chill.
Here's an essay by Mark Crispin Miller, PhD, who also has credentials up the "yim-yam", as an aunt of mine used to say -- and he didn't attend Event 201: and so doesn't have to prattle the party line:

You look more like Nanny McPhee than a witch, Yaya. You just can't pull off wicked or scary -- mischievous maybe.

Nanny McPhee, eh? Now I have to watch that movie. I do like Emma Thompson; she looked really good in a movie I saw once where she was dying. I would have been spit and image of her in the nanny movie had I not got some dental work done. Hindsight - where is it when you need it? No wonder nobody asks for my autograph.

My husband caved. He said we won't wear masks, anti-social distance, use tongs or send candy down a chute. If any kids come to our door they will have to let us drop some candy in their sacks like a normal Hallowe'en. So we turned on the porch light to see what would happen and I'm glad we did because we had 26 kids (a good number for here where the numbers have ranged from 2 to a rare 38 over the past 15 years). Most of the kids wore no masks at all. A few wore full masks related to their costume (no covid contraptions). There were lots of smiles and right now I'm feeling very proud of our fearless small town trick or treaters.

Thanks for telling me, M.R. It's so lovely to know that there are still families living reasonably normal lives despite all the top-down pressure to conform.

What did Robert Anton Wilson say, there are no such things as coincidences? We must be linked together through a higher power ;) ... i hope you enjoy.

Chycho: If by "higher power" you're talking about electricity, well I'm here to tell you that it did exactly the opposite. I was about to watch your video when the power went off and has just now come back on a couple of hours later. LOL

I'm going everywhere that disruptive innovation leads, must be done for the greater good... and it does keep me on my toes ;)

Good attitude - that censorship merely leads elsewhere, and yes, from the comments I see on your chat videos, it is for the greater good.
