MONDAY! MONDAY! Remember MTV?

Before cellphones, before the internet, before iTunes and other digital apps, before YouTube, there was MTV (that’s MusicTelevision) on cable.

Alien Warning Message: the voice of Gramaha from the Asta Galactic Command

Alien Warning Message Broadcast Live on TV!

On 26 Nov 1977 at 5:12 p.m, a strange unknown voice spoke slowly and deliberately, with a strange inward authority and British accent, calm, serene, never scolding as it overrode, took over, or super-modulated the TV signals from five transmitters that were monitored by the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) in England. IBA did not detect the intrusion. The message overrode a scheduled newscast read by Ivor Mills on Southern ITV, England and was heard by listeners as far away as Andover, London, Newbury, Oxford, Reading, Southhampton, and Winchester.

“This is the voice of Gramaha, the Representative of the Asta Galactic Command speaking to you:

For many years now you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet earth. We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your worlds so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disasters which threaten your worlds and the beings on our worlds around you.

This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The new age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments.

Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again. For many years your scientists, governments and generals have not heeded our warnings; they have continued to experiment with the evil forces of what you call nuclear energy. Atomic bombs can destroy the earth and the beings of your sister worlds, in a moment.

The wastes from atomic power systems will poison your planet for many thousands of your years to come. We, who have followed the path of evolution for far longer than you, have long since realized this — that atomic energy is always directed against life. It has no peaceful application. Its use, and research into its use, must be ceased at once, or you all risk destruction. All weapons of evil must be removed.

The time of conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the highest planes of evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this.

You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill. Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning new age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution.

Hear now the voice of Gramaha, the representative of the Asta Galactic Command speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating on your world. They will suck your energy from you — the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends giving you worthless dross in return.

Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within, that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you, and you will lead yourselves on to the path of evolution.

This is our message to you our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your earth than your scientists admit. We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light, and will do all we can to help you.

Have no fears, seek only to know yourselves and live in harmony with the ways of your planet earth. We of the Asta Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the planes of your existence.

May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the Cosmos.”

“Hidden Cash” in Los Angeles for the Weekend!

“Hidden Cash” came to Los Angeles on Friday and has been responsible for the largest scavenger hunt the city has ever seen. Free MONEY! Lots of Media Hype and Coverage! And pictures of happy people holding $$$$$! Holy Sh*t! This guy is for real.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

“Hidden Cash” – Envelope with hand written note filled with money

The MEDIA loves it! Crazy people hunting for money! They are live “retweeting” the clues at every opportunity and of course broadcasting live before, during and after each money drop. All the news coverage has just added fuel to the fire, as well as spawning copycats all over the country, and even throughout the world! Just go ahead google Hidden Cash.

Hidden Cash - Envelope with money in Pasadena

“Hidden Cash” – Envelope with money hidden in plain sight at Firehouse Studio in Pasadena

So, he was in Los Feliz (at the Mulholland Fountain), Burbank (at the Media Center), Pasadena (near Old Town), Echo Park/Salazar Park (East L.A.). The frenzy that occurred at the fountain in Los Feliz caused more than minor damage to the park, and the mob in Burbank caused a traffic jam and created safety problems, with people running in the street.  The mayhem, damage to property, and safety concerns have the police and sheriff departments monitoring the updates (and contacting him directly) via Twitter.

Hidden Cash - Burbank Media Center Frenzy!

“Hidden Cash” – Burbank Media Center Frenzy! (ripped from Twitter)

Today, Saturday, he was in Hermosa Beach. Usually he just hides an envelope with a hand written note on it, but at the beach he buried 36 plastic “Angry Birds” in the sand. But last night he tweeted that he would be at the beach today and people were digging in Santa Monica all night long….

All this madness, and I think the the biggest prize has been $200, which really isn’t that much. Maybe it’s the “something for nothing” nature of the giveaway or the need to “hop on the bandwagon” to be part of this weird new cultural phenomenon.

Donald Sterling, politicians, and advertisers should take note of the goodwill giving cash away to the unwashed masses generates in modern times. The Caesars of Rome used it to keep their citizens happy and distracted, Robin Hood became legend giving to the poor, and gangsters from Jesse James to Al Capone to John Gotti have won over the public and press (as well as corrupting public officials) regardless of their crimes by spreading the wealth around the neighborhood.

"Hidden Cash" - REAL STACKS OF CHEDDAR!

“Hidden Cash” – REAL STACKS OF CHEDDAR!

A personal message for “Hidden Cash”:

HEY RICH GUY! WHAT IS THIS NICKLE AND DIME SH*T? THIS IS LOS ANGELES! YOU BETTER UP YOUR GAME: GIVE AWAY SOME REAL MONEY! START WITH $1000 ENVELOPES AND THEN GET REALLY STUPID WITH REAL BIG CHEDDAR!  

"Hidden Cash" - REAL STACKS OF CHEDDAR!

“Hidden Cash” – USE REAL BIG STACKS OF CHEDDAR!

And if you’re just feeling generous and want to “give it away now”, please send it to me via US Mail at Joshua Weisel PO Box 18376 Encino CA 91416 or send me a message! NOTE: I will happily mention you here on my blog or we can just keep it between us….

There’s one more drop promised for tomorrow (Sunday), so follow “Hidden Cash” at @HiddenCash if you want to make an ass out of yourself with a bunch of idiots. Frankly, I’ll be glad to see him go back to San Francisco and take his circus sideshow with him.

UPDATED Wednesday, June 5th

HiddenCash hit Lake Hollywood and Hollenbeck Parks on his way out of town, hiding money in bottles of bubble-stuff. Then he stopped in Bakersfield on the way home to San Francisco. Yesterday, it was reported that he was sorry for the dangerous Burbank frenzy, and that he may alert law enforcement before making money drops in the future. He’s promised to have some fun in S.F. this weekend and that he’ll return to L.A. soon.
