Kate Bush Issues Letter of Gratitude to Her Fans After Successful Run of Shows

After recently ending an extended run of sold-out concerts at London’s Hammersmith Apollo – her first full live performances in 35 years – British singing legend Kate Bush issued a heartfelt letter to her fans, thanking them for their support. The letter, posted on her official website, contained a reflection of Bush’s thoughts on the concert series and its personal significance to her. She was quick to emphasize the camaraderie she had developed with her band and crew.

“I never expected everyone in the team to be so lovely and we all grew very close. We became a family and I really miss them all terribly,” she wrote.
This recent series, titled Before the Dawn, was Bush’s monumental return to the stage since her last tour in 1979. Devoted fans clamored to see Bush, eager for a glimpse of the notoriously private singer. Prior to the series’ start, Bush appealed to concertgoers in an open letter introduced by Gianfrancesco Genoso, asking that they refrain from taking pictures or recording video while at the concerts.

“I was really delighted that the shows were received so positively and so warmly but the really unexpected part of it all was the audiences,” Bush wrote. “One of the main reasons for wanting to perform live again was to have contact with that audience. They took my breath away.”

Bush’s shows performed outstandingly well both critically and commercially. Many lauded the songstress for her famously stunning soprano voice and flamboyant set design, calling it a theatrical spectacle. Despite such acclaim, there is no word on any future shows for Bush, or if she plans on taking her series on tour.

If a UFO is Not an Alien Craft, Then What is It?

My first blog post. And a random one at that. But something I’ve been wanting to putĀ out there for a while.

For decades there have been UFO sightings all over the world. Hovering lights, cigar-shaped vessels, and of course the classic flying saucer. There are earnest and seemingly credible UFO witnesses from all walks of life.

There are reports out of Colorado that the police and NORAD are looking into a sighting of three objects that formed triangles on the horizon. Once a major agency is taking something like this seriously, it lends the issue credibility.

Here is the problem. Everyone and their uncle has a cell phone with the capacity to take high quality photos and video of. Yet with all of these devices at our disposal, nobody has taken good footage of what these things are.

Let’s say UFOs are not visitors from another planet or dimension. Here is a list of 3 things commonly mistaken for UFOs:

1. Airplanes

That’s right, a regular airplane at night in the sky appears to have a triangular shape and flashing lights. They often fly at such a high altitude that they seem to make no sound at all.

2. Balloons

Think about it. A cluster of silver birthday balloons reflecting sunlight can create a weird glowing shape that moves through the air in a seemingly erratic pattern.

3. Satellites

There might be something up there, but it might be man-made. There are 3 navy satellites that are part of the Naval Ocean Surveillance System who were once used to track Soviet vehicles. Who knows what they are used for now? But people see them and mistake them for a triangle-shaped vehicle fairly often.

This is not to say that there is no such thing as UFOs. There are all sorts of unexplainable things going on in the world. It would just be nice if somebody could film one.
