I loves me some Sabbath. I’m probably of a slightly different vint-age than most of Black Sabbath’s original fans. I was high-school aged, cleaning out a rental property previously occupied by some lesbian hard-core “punk” chics and they’d left behind a copy of We Sold Our Soul For Rock n Roll - one side (b-side) of the record was completely melted but the other played fine so I started listening and was amazed. Before then I’d had this image of BS as “satanic” like all the fundamentalists had said. But I f***in loved it! Ozzy’s always had such a great freakin voice.
While, searching for Fiesta Sniper news I just found this… hat tip to Blabbermouth.

SAN ANTONIO — Ozzy Osborne is back in the Alamo City.
He’s not here in person, but on a Fiesta medal.
Artpace, a local non-profit dedicated to the advancement of contemporary art, featured the rocker on its first ever Fiesta medal.
“We sold out in 48 hours online,” said Artpace executive director Amanda Cruz.
The medal was designed by artist Jim Mendiola and Ruben Ortiz-Torres, reflecting a project from 2001. It pictures Ozzy as a bat, with an upside down Alamo serving as each wing.
Ozzy has a well-known history in San Antonio — particularly at the Alamo. He was supposedly banned from ever performing in San Antonio after he was arrested in 1982 for urinating on the Alamo. It’s a sore subject to some proud Texans, but also a quirky mishap that earned San Antonio another mention in rock and roll history.
“It’s all in good fun,” Cruz said.
“It would be a fun conversation starter,” said Michael Helms, who was shown the medal at the NIOSA celebration on Thursday afternoon.
Not everyone agreed. One Fiesta-goer said, “Hell no, I would not wear it.”
Sarah Reveley described Ozzy as “a rock singer who is still a drug addict.”
Join producer April Hannah and director Michael Habernig for a screening of their latest film, Beyond the Physical. Part II of The Path Documentary Series, the film investigates topics of out of body phenomena, remote viewing, and multiple dimensions. (Part I, Afterlife (2009), explores the concepts of life after death and encounters with what happens to the soul when it leaves the physical body.) Much of the new film was shot at the The Monroe Institute in Faber, Virginia, and features TMI’s former research director and president F. Holmes “Skip” Atwater, its former executive directer Paul Rademacher, leading out-of-body expert William Buhlman, and professional physicist Thomas W. Campbell, author of My Big TOE. A question and answer panel with the filmmakers will follow the screening. For more information about the event, films, and DVDs, please visit the links below.

Ken Gerhard and the Houston Batman get some cryptozoological coverage this Halloween Season. Video at the link:
HOUSTON (KTRK) — Big Foot, the Chupacabra and the Loch Ness Monster — they’re all creatures of lore that have captivated mankind for centuries. But did you know that Houston has a legend of its own? We go back in time for a closer look at the case of the Houston Batman.
UFO or Lens Flare in Google Street View? You Decide – ABC News. (Video at link)
Andrea Dove contacted ABC News affiliate KLTV in East Texas with an interesting tip. Dove was using Google Maps to get directions to visit her aunt in Jacksonville, Texas, when she spotted a UFO while using the Street View option.
Don’t believe it? Try it yourself by simply searching Jacksonville, Texas, and panning upward toward the sky in Street View to spot the reddish UFO near the clouds — although no one in Jacksonville has ever reported seeing one.
If you’re still looking for more evidence, try the same trick by searching for the Sky City Casino Hotel on 32 Indian Service Route 30, Acoma Pueblo, N.M. The same object appears in the sky hovering over the street.
What do these two sites have in common? A McDonald’s.
Is it really the same UFO or simply a lens flare?
HOLLYWOOD PARK, Texas — A South Texas mayor has been found dead after apparently being attacked by a 500-pound donkey on his ranch.
The Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that the death of Hollywood Park Mayor William “Bill” Bohlke appears to be an accident. Bohlke was 65.
Chief Deputy David Soward says Bohlke apparently was attacked Monday morning by a male, aggressive donkey he kept on the ranch.
Investigators say the donkey and several others are still on the property with other livestock.
“He loved his animals. He loved ranching,” said Sandra Wilson.
According to the neighbor, Bohlke’s wife was concerned when he didn’t return to Hollywood Park after checking on his animals.
After dark, Wilson said several neighbors, jumped on all terrain vehicles and went looking for the Air Force veteran.
They found his truck still running hours after he was attacked.
Soward says it’s up to the family to decide what to do with the donkey.
Mayor Pro Tem Steve Phillips will serve as acting mayor of Hollywood Park, a town of about 3,000 just north of San Antonio.
A memorial service is scheduled for next Tuesday at Saint Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church with a burial at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.

Wow! Weird news right next door in Elgin, Texas. A local rancher discovers all his cattle dying, apparently from cyanide gas given off by hybrid grass! WTF?!?
Meanwhile … KEYE tv has apparently memory-holed their original coverage of the story – the article and video at the link below are now as mysteriously gone as the cattle mysteriously died. They have posted a new article and video and have stated that they will continue to cover this important news.
Of course in the meantime we can count on Austin’s own Alex Jones for commentary on this developing story…

The latest “Texas Blue Dog” sightings (continually referred to as “chupacabras” by the media) hit close to home, just north of Austin in Cedar Park.
Experts explain Chupacabra sighting in Cedar Park (Video)
By: Sebastian Robertson
A Central Texas man believes he has photos of the mythical animal, the Chupacabra.
Rick Cumpston snapped photos of what he says could be the legendary monster-like creature “El Chupacabra” over the weekend at a Cedar Park winery. YNN spoke with a local wildlife expert who said the photos most likely captured wild animals forced closer to civilization due to drought.
The pictures were taken by Rick Cumpston over the weekend at a winery in Cedar Park. Cumpston says he first came across the unique looking animals about two weeks ago in the back of his workshop.
“There was a sudden surge of fear. I didn’t know what I was looking at. I didn’t know if it was aggressive. I didn’t know whether to grab the gun or grab the camera,” he said.
Cumpston said they resemble “El chupacabra,” meaning goat sucker in Spanish. It has been described as a monster-like creature that sucks the blood out of livestock, originating from Latin America folklore.
“I really have no idea what it is, my main interest was just to photograph it,” Cumpston said.
Erica Hendrix is licensed to Rehabilitate Wildlife for the state. She said the unique photos are most likely another sign of the drought — sick animals wondering close to town, looking for food.
“These are more dog-like. You can see it in their stature,” Hendrix said. “In the pictures that I saw, you could see the red, inflamed skin and the patches of hair. These are definitely not the mythical creatures.”
Her logic may bring the story back to reality, but Cumpston remains convinced there may be more to the story than meets the eye.
Experts say if you have strange animals roaming your property, you can set up a live trap.

Recently, an attempt was made to bring UFO Close Encounter witness Travis Walton to Central Texas (first Austin then San Antonio). Sadly, the attempt failed.
Ironically, there was a successful conference (that was a nearly mirror image of the one attempted in San Antonio) featuring Walton and other presenters in Laredo, Texas late last year…

*HD 1080p* – March 21, 2012: Two UFOs filmed from a plane in Dallas/Fort Worth area. Video courtesy of Ann & Jennifer Thomson who just wanted to film the Fort Worth Downtown. Thanks for sharing! The first object passes through the middle of the screen. The second object passes through the bottom right of the screen. After a youtube viewer noticed the second UFO in the bottom right corner I decided to make this second video with the second object slowed down and enhanced.
Special Thanks to crazybreakingnews for sharing this. Ann & Jennifer Thomson sent crazybreakingnews this video after seeing his video of a UFO from a plane in Amsterdam. Thanks again. Original Video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMgvSqmULFE
