On the radar: Kevin Smith shooting a horror moving titled KILLROY WAS HERE.. Some of the filming took place at a Florida college..
A little bit of history about KILLROY WAS HERE: The phrase “Kilroy Was Here” originated in American culture as graffiti during World War II as a bald-headed man with a big nose peeking over a wall with the fingers of each hand clutching the wall. Smith said the new film will be the first installment of a horror anthology.. Even more: Author Charles Panati says that in the United States “the mischievous face and the phrase became a national joke… The outrageousness of the graffiti was not so much what it said, but where it turned up.” The major Kilroy graffiti fad ended in the 1950s, but today people all over the world still scribble the character and “Kilroy was here” in schools, trains, and other public areas. It is believed that James J. Kilroy was the origin of the expression, as he used the phrase when checking ships at the Fore River Shipyard in Massachusetts during WWII..

Life imitating reality.. reality imitating life. Either way, some times things just happen that make you think a cosmic player is having fun.. that God is setting up coincidences to make us just laugh . Or Cry. When Donald Trump announced his military strike on Syria the other night, he was on Air Force One. It was interesting that he spoke to the press while a television screen on the plane was playing ROGUE ONE, the STAR WARS story.. The movie continued to play while Trump fielded questions. The internet, quick to make memes, really did not have to, this time. The memes were made for them… the strange oddity of a real war along with the Empire striking in ROGUE ONE cannot be underplayed. Life itself is just plain weird.
