I gather from some of the comments I have received on social media that a good number of my followers think I post too much on Twitter about the material I am researching for my new book rather than my usual diet of UFOs and pyramids. In pre-pandemic times, I imagine I would have bounced ideas off people in real life, but I don't have that luxury as often today. Now, I grant you that it is very different content, and sometimes more explicit, but I do not control history. If people see a significant difference between writing about James Dean's much duller than you would imagine sex life and George Adamski allegedly paying blond teenage boys for sex while telling people they were Venusians visiting his hotel with cosmic secrets, I can only shrug and wonder. But, good news! I have finished more than ten of my book's twelve chapters, and there is not much left. Then I will have nothing to talk about!
Meanwhile, back with the aliens, the first episode of Ancient Aliens this season surprised me with its vastly improved ratings over its pre-pandemic viewer totals. Last week's episode started to come back to earth, losing 1 in 5 of its viewers from the week before, down to just 960,000 viewers. With no new episode of Ancient Aliens this week, we will have to settle for the new Kesha and the Creepies podcast from Kesha, where last week the musician interviewed Alice Cooper and discussed space aliens.
According to an article in Cracked, the two speculated that COVID-19 is the work of space aliens. Cooper explained his belief that UFOs are interdimensional rather than extraterrestrial, and he said that the beings from that dimension are demons who are trying fool humanity by posing as aliens and ghosts.
Both musicians' supernatural beliefs are well-known, but it is always interesting to see that the current unification of occult ideas about interdimensional space demons standing behind every supernatural excretion has seeped down to the dregs from the elite producers of pseudoscientific ideas.
