Bad Moon Rising

29 Sep

Last night, we went outside and looked at the eclipse of the Supermoon. It was cloudy, but, in my mind, it made the event more cool. As the clouds floated by, we could see the eclipse behind them. The special effects people on a scary movie could not have done a better job.

As we looked into the night sky, the words of Creedence Clearwater Revival entered my mind.

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times today.

It is a great song, and the words were fitting. However, some people took those words to heart and believed that the eclipsed Supermoon heralded the End Times. I have been reading about these people and wanted to tell them that their idea could not be true. As I wrote in an earlier post, the Second Coming has already occurred. I was there when it happened.

As this day progressed, I began to think that their beliefs may have some merits. Seriously, think about some of the strange things that have gone on.

Facebook went offline, and the lives of many people were altered forever. I read about it on Twitter, which did not have any Apocalyptic problems.

NASA announced that there is water on Mars. That means the Martians that seeded our planet may still be around. If they are still around, then they may show up and punish us for bad behavior.

The night before the eclipse of the Supermoon, Mick Jagger performed on a Nashville stage with Taylor Swift.Mick Taylor

That may have been the true sign of the End Times. At least, it was the final death knell for Rock and Roll. If that is the case, then there is no reason for humanity go survive.

It is enough to make someone crawl into a bunker filled with canned goods and a ham radio. I only hope that the radio picks up real music from Creedence Clearwater Revival and Mick Jagger in the days before he was Taylor Swift’s BFF.

    We were listening to Credence all the way to Cooperstown. Bad Moon got a lot of air time. Who knew it would be so relevant?

      When we last saw Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks said she and Lindsey Buckingham were stuck in Lodi with CCR. I thought that was pretty cool.

        Garry has recently rediscovered them as the ultimate driving music. A bit of pedal to the metal, as it were.

    CCR were one of my favourite bands for a while in the seventies.

      They created some good tunes. Too bad they don’t get along.

        And the two who got along the least and worst were the brothers. Which somehow figures.

        I didn’t know that.

        Yeah. It’s strange how many bands end up that way.

    Strange days indeed!

    On a loosely related note, I was listening to an impressive new band called Blushing Satellite which is another way of saying Blood Moon. P.S.: they haven’t released EPs/albums yet and are just 2 gigs old. Lots of promise. I’ll take them on my tour some day.

    Couldn’t see that moon here either. Drat.
    New music. Boy .. I’ve tried to give some of the new kids a chance. But.
    Somebody must be doing something good … somewhere.
