STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

SMALL TOWN CLOWNS MOVE TO ISRAEL

SMALL TOWN CLOWNS MOVE TO ISRAEL!

Channel 2 on Tuesday aired footage of a minor who dressed up like a clown in Yavne. “I am the Yavne clown,” said the boy. “I do it because it’s boring [in Yavne] I am not into killing people, only into scaring children.”

Police official Boaz Hamami, who was also interviewed for the Channel 2 report, said that the danger is two-fold: to the people who are panicked by the clowns, and for the clowns themselves, who might end up being shot by security or worried citizens who might respond with violence at the sight of a clown attacking children.

And there is a new report from the nation that a child was running scared at someone dressed like a clown.

This is the same pattern of clownish oddities that graced other continents previous autumns..

Oddly enough the movie IT came out and all of I seemingly died off in America and the UK.
But in Israel? The small town clowns are out en masse….

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.

MARILYN MANSON PROP DISASTER: INJURED AFTER STAGE PIECE FALLS AT THE HAMMERSTEIN BALLROOM

Marilyn Manson cut his Saturday night show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom short after a stage prop collapsed atop the shock rocker. The severity of Manson's injuries was unclear at press time, but the concert was canceled after a brief delay.


"Manson suffered an injury towards the end of his incredible NYC show. He is being treated at a local hospital," a rep for the singer told Rolling Stone.

Here is a video:
The incident occurred roughly an hour into Manson's concert, the third date on the North American leg of Manson's Heaven Upside Down tour. During "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)," Manson made his way toward the back of the stage, where a prop featuring two giant pistols suddenly fell forward onto Manson. Video from the concert shows Manson grappling the prop before it comes crashing down to the stage.

After the stage crew lifted the prop back up, Manson lay on the ground for several minutes. EMT workers also rushed to the backstage area as v…

A President Tweets after a storm. And causes a Category 5 storm of Tweets.

In an 11-hour period beginning at 7:19 a.m. and ending at 6:46 p.m. Saturday, the President of the United States ripped off 18 -- yes, 18! -- tweets dealing with the dire situation in Puerto Rico following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria.
None of them were good.. it has created a monster of a problem for the President..
In the aftermath of a storm that ground Puerto Rico to a halt and turned off power for just about 100% of the people, the leader of the free world decided to blame Puerto Rico.. 
He attacked San Juan's Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.. 

"They want everything to be done for them" he Tweeted at one point..  Then he slammed news organizations for being critical of him not responding to the crisis in Puerto Rico..
The entire fight became the focal point of the cold opening of last night's SNL ..


The season premiere of Saturday Night Live was hosted by Ryan Gosling with Jay-Z as the musical guest.

Seattle butterflies: ALL GODS MUST DIE gets attention

There is something strange afoot in the city of Seattle Washington -- a butterfly effect is causing strange emotions from people who are finding origami butterflies throughout public locations.. when the papers are unfolded, ominous messages appear..








From a local report:
"Origami butterflies with ominous messages have been found all around Seattle.The colorful creations look cheerful at first, but when unfolded, the phrase “you are not safe,” is revealed. A date is printed along with the message: 9-28-17.Even more puzzling are the illustrations, which include Russell Wilson, Kurt Cobain, the Starbucks siren, and a peace message. One of the notes features the Seattle skyline without its famous Space Needle landmark.A website is listed on some of the papers:  www.allgodsmustdie.com. On it, a scramble of letters merge together to form the statement, "You Are Not Safe” while Wagner's "Das Rheingold" plays. Then, a psychedelic goat appears behind the vaguely threateni…

Sexist relic Hugh Hefner dead

A relic of a sexist era gone.. Hugh Hefner dead at 91..



Hugh Hefner -- the silk-robed Casanova whose Playboy men's magazine popularized the term "centerfold," glamorized an urbane bachelor lifestyle and helped spur the 'sexual revolution' of the 1960s -- has died, his company said late Wednesday. He was 91.
Hefner founded Playboy in 1953 with $600 of his own money and built the magazine into a multimillion-dollar entertainment empire that at its 1970s peak included TV shows, a jazz festival and a string of Playboy Clubs whose cocktail waitresses wore bunny ears and cottontails.

NFL water cooler talk isn't cool today

The numbers are in..


In metered market numbers, the primetime match-up between the 27-10 winning Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders snared an 11.6/20.The worst SNF has performed this season so far, that’s an 8% dip from the early numbers of last week’s Atlanta Falcon’s 34-23 win over the Green Bay Packers. Gaining cheers and boos from fans at FedEx Field in Maryland last night, the third week of SNF for the 2017-2018 season declined 10% from early numbers of the comparable game of last year on September 25, 2016.The outcome to the weekend is what I expected. Facebook and Twitter are filled with memes and jersey burnings, controversy and "I stand" logos overtop of people's profile photos... I have literally witnessed "virtual" online friendships ending this morning due to the kneeling controversy ...Someone I know wrote a long post about how she will stay off of Facebook due to the debate. Perhaps I will do the same, only lurking from a safe distance.Thi…

'UFO' spotted over LA as hidden Planet X predicted to destroy Earth? The new battle over Los Angeles ?

'UFO' spotted over LA as hidden Planet X predicted to destroy Earth? The new battle over Los Angeles ?: The prediction that a hidden planet was meant to smash into Earth on Saturday — killing us all — was laughed at by experts.
But that quickly turned into nervous laughter when a number of people spotted strange lights in the skies above America hours before the destruction was supposed to take place.
Freaked-out Los Angeles residents saw what they described as a UFO with a weird crescent flying over them.Luckily we are still here and the earth hasn’t been destroyed .. but for a few seconds there may have been absurd fears within the hearts of Los Angrlenos…
