Moon-walker Dr Edgar Mitchell Claims Alien Contact Cover-up

"there has been visitation"
July 24, 2008 12:01am

FORMER NASA astronaut and moon-walker Dr Edgar Mitchell - a veteran of the Apollo 14 mission - has stunningly claimed aliens exist.

And he says extra-terrestrials have visited Earth on several occasions - but the alien contact has been repeatedly covered up by governments for six decades.

Dr Mitchell, 77, said during a radio interview that sources at the space agency who had had contact with aliens described the beings as 'little people who look strange to us.'

He said supposedly real-life ET's were similar to the traditional image of a small frame, large eyes and head.

Chillingly, he claimed our technology is "not nearly as sophisticated" as theirs and "had they been hostile", he warned "we would be been gone by now".

Castlefest - The Festival of Light



Bezoekers die de tuinen van kasteel Keukenhof op 1-2-3 augustus 2008 doorstruinen komen in een andere wereld terecht. Overal zijn mensen verkleed als ridder, tovenaar of jonkvrouwe. Keltische muziek weerklinkt vanop het hoofdpodium. Een gevangene wordt op middeleeuwse wijze verhoord. Bezoekers leren boogschieten.


Het 4e Castlefest krijgt een nog uitgebreider programma dan vorig jaar. Het historische reënactersdorp is er uiteraard, net zoals de bezoekende schrijvers en de vele demonstraties. Er is eveneens het Kinderrijk, Kunst op straat, een strokasteel dat beklommen kan worden, een ambachtelijke bakkerij en een schilderen-met-zwaard-wedstrijd.
Het hoogtepunt van het Festival van het Licht valt op zaterdag wanneer traditiegetrouw de 4m hoge wickerman vol persoonlijke giften uit het publiek wordt verbrand tijdens een fantastische vuurshow. Fantasy, geschiedenis, goth en alternatieve levensstijl ontmoeten elkaar.
Alles tijdens dit sfeerevenement staat in het teken van de natuur... zelfs de catering zal zo natuurvriendelijk mogelijk zijn... en voor de alcoholverbruikers onder ons: bier wordt in aarden bekers geserveerd.
Van 1 tem 3 augustus 2008
Locatie: Kasteel Keukenhof te Lisse (Nederland)

Warhammer, Mark of Chaos - Battle March



Character Profiles: Dark Elves

Dark Elf Dragon (mount for heroes)
Ancient and deadly, the dragons of Naggaroth are reared by the Beastmasters and are amongst the most powerful creatures in all the lands. They can breathe forth a noxious cloud of corrosive fumes that burns skin and causes any who breathe it to choke and die. Only the greatest lords amongst the Dark Elves ride atop the massive Black Dragons of Naggaroth which, even alone, have the power to destroy an army.

Dark Elf Spearmen
Citizen-warriors of Naggaroth are most commonly armed with long, heavy bladed spears, and they are uniformly well drilled in their usage. Each warrior is highly skilled and has reactions far superior to those of lesser races, and through near constant warfare and training, the citizen-warriors of Naggaroth are more than a match for the professional soldiers of other races.

Harpies
Harpies are feral winged creatures possessed of a savage, primeval beauty. Some claim they are the souls of slain Witch Elves given form, others that they are the manifestation of Khaine in his aspect of the predator. They are creatures of Khaine, that is for sure, for they delight in the tormenting of their victims and feast upon raw flesh.

Highborn
The noble Highborn are the ruling elite of Naggaroth, and it is they who often lead the armies of conquest against the lesser races. They are haughty, noble and their training in the arts of war is second to none. Equipped with the finest of Dark Elf arms and armour, they are fearsome foes on the field of battle.

High Sorceress
The High Sorceresses are the most powerful practitioners of the Dark Arts in all of Naggaroth bar the Witch King himself, and they wield terrifying powers. They are incredibly adept at manipulating the Winds of Magic in their rawest, most destructive form, channel-ling energies that would destroy lesser beings into powerful spells that can lay waste to enemy armies.

Kaeleth
Claimed as a babe by the bloody Witch Elf priestesses of Khaine, the infant Kaeleth was offered up to Khaine, the god of murder, and plunged ritualistically into a Cauldron of Blood. Initiated into the Temple of Khaine, the young Dark Elf was raised as an Assassin, and over the centuries has become a master of death.

One of the Witch King's most feared assassins, Kaeleth is a master of blades, poison and the darkness, and he is capable of infiltrating the enemy, slaying his target and making his escape without trace. But it is not just the foes of the Dark Elves that must fear him – for Malekith uses Kaeleth to silence any Dark Elf foolish enough to question his authority.

Lilaeth
Bitter and fuelled by hatred, Lilaeth is a member of the dark convents of the sorceresses – a mistress of the Dark Arts. As are all Sorceresses she is wedded to Malekith the Witch King, and studied many years to master the channelling of the raw Winds of Magic that flow across the land. For centuries she has served the Witch King, and she commands devastatingly destructive magic.

When the Witch King launched a war against his hated High Elf kin, Lilaeth fought at his side, leading a splinter army that pushed deep into Ulthuan. This war was eventually repelled, and Lilaeth's army was shattered. At the mercy of the High Elf mage Aurelion, Lilaeth's life was spared that she may face the wrath of the Witch King.

Malekith has given her one chance to redeem her failure, and to seek her vengeance on the High Elves.

Mirror's Edge (PC, PS3, XB360)

Mirror's Edge Fact Sheet
Once this city used to pulse with energy; dirty and dangerous, but alive and wonderful.Now it is something else.The changes came slowly at first. Most did not realize or did not care, and accepted them.They chose a comfortable life.Some didn’t…They became our clients.


In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called Runners transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. In this seemingly utopian paradise, a crime has been committed, your sister has been framed and now you are being hunted.You are a Runner called Faith - and this innovative first-person action-adventure is your story.

Mirror’s Edge™ delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith’s world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous.Live or die? Soar or plummet? One thing is certain, in this city you will learn how to run.

From the makers of the groundbreaking Battlefield franchise, Mirror’s Edge is an action-adventure experience unlike any other


Move yourself: String together an amazing arsenal of wall-runs, leaps, vaults and more, in fluid, acrobatic movements that turns every level of the urban environment to your advantage and salvation.
Immerse yourself: In first person every breath, every collision, every impact is acutely felt. Heights create real vertigo, movements flow naturally, collisions and bullet impacts create genuine fear and adrenaline.
Challenge yourself: Fight or flight. Your speed and agility allow you not only to evade, capture and perform daring escapes, but also to disable and disarm unwary opponents, in a mix of chase, puzzles, strategy and intense combat.
Free Yourself: Runner vision allows you to see the city as they do. See the flow. Rooftops become pathways and conduits, opportunities and escape routes. The flow is what keeps you running – what keeps you alive.

Izuna 2: The Unemployed Ninja Returns (DS)

MEET SOME CHARACTERS


1. Izuna:Yep, that’s me! I am such a sexy kunoichi. Look at my deep green eyes, my full bodied figure and- Oh, you wanted to hear about my personality? Well, I’m the main character of this little show. People say I’m lazy, self-centered, and that I have no common sense. You know what though? They’re just jealous of my star power.

2. Gen-An:We call him “Grandboss,” because he’s pretty much our boss and our only family. In fact, we’d follow him to the end of the world in search of a place where he can settle down. Last time... that didn’t work out so well, but we’ll keep looking. I know you’re tired Grandboss, don’t worry...

11. Shino:This is my best friend, Shino. I call her Shino-Sis, because she treats me more like a younger sister than a friend. But she actually has a real sister who got separated from her a long time ago. Even though her expression doesn’t change much, she burns with fiery passion on the inside. I’m sure of it!

12. Mitsumoto:Oh... him. He’s the guy who vowed his allegiance to us, making him our eternal servant. He totally thinks he’s awesome, and he’s always trying to pick up on girls. What a loser. And listen, it’s still MY game, so BACK OFF!

21. Ichika:She’s a really strong fisherwoman from Suirei who I totally thought would never get married. She’s too buff for her own good, and she’s kind of a tomboy. But apparently she found someone, so...

15. Suiren:She’s the goddess of Water who just thinks she’s sooo mature! I’ll tell you what she really is though! A brat! A brat with a temper who likes to play tricks on people! Is it obvious we don’t get along?

31. Sakichi:Ehh, he’s not the best looking guy in the world, and he’s just a simple fisherman from Suirei, but he’s kinda smart, and honest, too. Looks like his love for Ichika paid off...

4. Shuuchi:He’s the god of Earth, and he’s way into honor and following Bushido, the code of the warrior. Whatever floats his boat. Even though he won’t admit it, he’s totally my biggest fan. Isn’t that right, you big Earth god, you!?

5. Fuuka:The goddess of Wind. She’s always so calm and kind. Even to me, and that’s really something. People say she’s got a violent side, but they must be mistaking her for someone else. I think...

14. Kagen:If he had half as much brains as he did brawn... Well, he’s the god of Fire, and he’s... compassionate and emotional, but... simple. Very, very simple.
