Tom DeLonge Preps Non-Fiction Book About UFO Phenomenon

DeLonge co-wrote Sekret Machines with Peter Levenda, who has penned numerous books about history and the occult. The new book is based on interviews with scientists, engineers, intelligence officers and military officials. It aims to challenge the way people think about UFO sightings and related phenomena. Sekret Machines is the opening salvo on the complacency of human institutions where the UFO Phenomenon is concerned,” Levenda sid. “It’s designed to shake people up, to make them question their assumptions. This book is not only a new take on the Phenomenon – by treating it as a given – but a new approach to religion that takes a hard look at religious texts and ideas from around the world to discern the traces of an event that changed us forever.”

Standing in line for new Star Wars movies is a time-honored tradition, one that stretches back all the way to the very beginning of the franchise. Combined with the enduring popularity of the series, it was probably only a matter of time before a movie like The Line Kings came along. This, despite the existence of Fanboys. Right now there’s no word on who may star in the film, but the plan currently calls for shooting to begin on location in Los Angeles later this spring. My advice to all involved with the production would be to study the clip below very carefully: The Line Kings will have to work very hard to be funnier than this classic piece of late night history.
