The hole in the roof has had babies. They are now Holes – plural. And we’ve run out of buckets.
C’est la vie. Que sera, sera.
I saw Annie and Dave live in a tiny backstreet club in Berlin. They were at the height of their fame but chose that over the Olympic Stadium which was right beside our RMP Unit and had hosted the likes of U2, Michael Jackson, Bowie etc.
Most of us know this adage/proverb/quote….meme (!)
I’m not a fan of Stephen King but I’ve read a few of his books and seen a few of the films based on his books.
Green Mile and Shawshank stand alone as masterpieces.
Carrie was freaky. Christine. Salem’s Lot (m’eh) The SHINING – disturbingly wonderful.
For me – Misery with Kathy Bates is exceptional.
My brain says that King, either in or out of his cocaine binge, thought of the phrase Misery Loves Company and crafted an incredible story around these three words.
wiki ?fact? – The novel’s title has two meanings: it is the name carried by the central heroine of Paul’s book series, and King described such a state of emotion during the novel’s writing. He has stated that Annie is a stand-in for cocaine
Annie and Dave are fabby famous. So this song is Known by many.
Kelvin Kyte? And why bring him into it?
PAY ATTENTION to the music video. Read the below. And work IT OUT yo’self. FFS.
Thttps://www.bookseries.org/series/the-cold-calling/he characters are real people with real issues and the mysteries are dissected and solved in ways that make sense for a crime fiction story. However, the books are also heavily steeped in the supernatural.
Rickman, the author, understands religions and lore and folktales, and whatever he doesn’t know he researches thoroughly. This shows in The Cold Calling.
The series revolves around the experiences of Bobby Maiden, Marcus Bacton, Sister Anderson, and Cindy.
Cindy is a cross-dressing Shaman. When readers encounter him in the first novel (The Cold Calling), Cindy is certain that a landlady’s daughter was killed by the same person who took the life of William Rufus a long time ago.
Because of a lack of concrete evidence, no one gives Cindy’s ramblings any consideration and that, in turn, drives Cindy to undertake his own investigation.
Bobby Maiden is one of the police officers that choose to ignore Cindy’s claims, and for good reason. Bobby’s life is unraveling. Not only did his marriage implode but he discovered evidence pinning his boss to a corruption case.
When the boss in question retaliates, Bobby actually dies, only to revive a little while later. For Sister Anderson, death is nothing new. And as far as she knows, most people that return to the world of the living typically report visions of a bright light.
But for Bobby, the afterlife was a nightmare, and even after he revives, he cannot find peace. Terrible dreams torment him. If that wasn’t enough, Bobby knows that his boss will orchestrate another accident the first chance he gets.
So when Sister Anderson, a nurse that was miraculously healed and whose own healing powers brought him back to life, offers him sanctuary, Bobby accepts.
It is through Anderson that Bobby meets Marcus, a student of the supernatural, and Grayle Underhill, an American journalist who writes a New Age column in the New Yorker.
Grayle, Cindy, Bobby, Anderson, and Marcus must band together to overcome the mystical source of their respective challenges.
The Cold Calling series tells their story. Each novel follows the distinct journeys of the individual characters as they pull away from one another and then snap back together, forced to reconnect by unexpected circumstances.
BEST THE COLD CALLING BOOKS
These novels are most commonly commended for their magnetic characters and grounded exploration of incredible paranormal occurrences, with some of the best books in the series including:
The Cold Calling: Marcus lives in the ruin of an ancient castle. His life is hardly ordinary. After all, his housekeeper saw the Virgin Mary at a prehistoric burial mound.
When a television archaeologist buys the burial mound and then attempts to acquire the ancient castle, Marcus wants to fight back.
However, distractions keep pushing their way into his life. Chief amongst them is Bobby Maiden. The DI was killed by his corrupt boss. But then sister Anderson, a nurse, and alternative healer brought him back.
Now he is plagued by frightening dreams. Anderson brings Bobby to Marcus because she thinks he can help the police officer.
Meanwhile, Cindy, a ventriloquist, is certain that a serial killer is on the loose. However, he has no proof and no one will listen to him.
SIDE NOTE :
I have not counted the number of times that Phil/Will has had a pop at Richard Dawkins in his many novels.
But enough to tell us what he thinks of this #famous person/darwinian/atheist.
Back to Annie and Dave AND Stranger Danger. Gotta love past insults :o)
I feel that David Icke got the “reptile” thing spot on.
Reptiles are cold-blooded. They have to steal warmth from outside because they are incapable of being warm on their own. They spend much of their lives basking in the sunlight.
This is a METAPHOR. And one that got hijacked and taken into SillyVille by so many.
Like the Devil, Reptilian is an energy. A state. A vibration.
We all fall into Devil Energy. I’ve done it many times. Pursued lust and money and fancy pants for that HIT of instant gratification. Who Has Not?
The Cold, Cold Blood of a Reptile is the same thing. It needs warmth to live. It steals warmth and light and energy just to survive.
What this modern metaphor is NOT :
This is not about Human Beings turning into LIZARDS before our eyes.
NOT. NOPE. NEVER.
A shapeshifter can also be called a TURNCOAT.
A TURNCOAT is a medieval herald who wears a reversible tabard. The coat of arms of one King on one side. Coat of arms of his rival on t’other side. A quick flip, a turning of the coat and he’s able to live another day.
Reptiles are NARCS. They are cold to the bone, have zero conscience, zero remorse, zero ability to accept any type of blame. They just ARE. They exist. They feed off others in order to keep existing.
The Mummy or Rameses the Damned is my all time favourite Anne Rice book.
I’m also very fond of the original 1999 film The Mummy…those clothes, that era.
Then we have my new fave crafter, Eva. She, too, is a fan of The Mummy film. Eva is Czech but I believe she lives in England now. I just adore her passion and her accent. Bohemian Crafting is her yt channel.
