Twilight Zone: A Matter of Minutes. Could something like this explain the Mandela Effect?

Just the other day, a friend of mine was adamant: Tinkerbell DEFINITELY did dot the I in the Disney Logo ..

She did not.
Never happened. Ever.

And thus began that person's foray into the Mandela Effect world -- something we have been taking time to discuss over the past few years or so since the whole thing was unveiled on Art Bell in the late 90s and the again by Starfire Tor on Coast to Coast AM during the mid-2000s...

This TWILIGHT ZONE entitled A MATTER OF MINUTES from 1985 is somewhat on that subject..

Just think! Every minute is built.. every period of time is constructed. Some get lost.. And some times things get lost.
But nothing major. Just the E in Berenstain and the turkey leg in King Henry's painting....

Houston? We have a problem.. a genie is out of the Sinbad bottle.. and it's nothing that Tinkerbell can dot an I away with...

It's over. Print dies: September VOGUE does not matter

It was once the biggest print magazine of the year..
They were the days..

NOW THIS, AS REPORTED BY Alexandra Steigrad:

Days before the issue hit newsstands, usually in early August, executives from Vogue, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Glamour and W would brag about the thickness of their telephone book-sized glossies. They’d boast of the “thud” the issues made when dropped on a coffee table. The louder the thud, the more powerful the magazine.
Now that thud is more of a whimper.
“The September issue means nothing anymore,” said Sam Shahid, founder of branding, advertising and design agency Shahid & Company. “You used to hold that magazine in your hand. It takes you to a place — that’s what a magazine used to do. Now they are all doing the same thing. There’s no imagination there. It’s just pure product, it’s pleasing the advertiser.”
Shahid says a lack of funds at publishers, due to a decline in print circulation and ad revenue in the digital age, has led to a crazy scramble to attr…

CALI JURY RULES: MONSANTO CAUSED FARMER'S CANCER!

DeWayne “Lee” Johnson claimed that years of working with Roundup and Ranger Pro, both made by Monsanto, gave him terminal cancer.

Jurors in California superior court agreed the product contributed to Johnson’s cancer and the company should have provided a label warning of the potential health hazard. Johnson’s attorneys sought and won $39 million in compensatory damages and $250 million of the $373 million they wanted in punitive damages.

“This jury found Monsanto acted with malice and oppression because they knew what they were doing was wrong and doing it with reckless disregard for human life,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a member of Johnson’s legal team, told the Associated Press. “This should send a strong message to the boardroom of Monsanto.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says Roundup’s active ingredient is safe for people when used in accordance with label directions.

However, the France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Or…

SLENDERMAN reviews coming in! A slate of blank possibilities

Meagan Navarro reviewed SLENDERMAN for Bloody Disgusting..

The results are not good..
THE MONEY QUOTE

Slender Man took a blank slate of possibilities and turned it into a tired retread. It’s a strange choice made even more curious considering the popularity of the creepypasta seems to have waned in the last few years. There’s a chance that Slender Man will work for a group of teen girls during a sleepover, but for everyone else, it’ll be a maddening experience in tedium. There’s some imagery from earlier trailers missing in the final cut, making me wonder what White might have originally envisioned, but even then I don’t know that anything could’ve saved this.

Halloween will premiere this September at the Toronto International Film Festival

Ahead of its October 19, 2018 release via Universal Pictures, writer and director David Gordon Green’s hotly-anticipated Halloween is set for its world premiere this September as a Midnight Madness selection of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, which runs September 6 – 16!
Tickets are available here..
From the official press release:

“This year’s Midnight Madness slate promises another idiosyncratic confluence of established and emerging genre filmmakers,” Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky said of the selection in a press statement. “To complement some of the buzziest provocations on the festival circuit, I have sought to curate an eccentric array of World Premieres that demonstrate the dexterity of genre cinema as a canvas for both sublime satisfaction and stunning subversion. That includes – Halloween – which boldly and brilliantly builds upon its mythic iconography to thrilling and surprising effect.”

Talk about losing your car in the parking lot: Sinkhole opens up at Lancaster PA shopping center!

A sinkhole formed in the parking lot at Tanger Outlets in East Lampeter Township, Lancaster County, Aug. 10, 2018. Several cars, including at least one with someone inside, were damaged.


As the day turned into night, the cars sunk further..






PENNLIVE HAS SOME MORE PHOTOS OF THE SIGHTSEERS AMAZED BY THE SINKHOLE..

Sinkholes have been prevalent around the eastern part of PA, including Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Allentown, over the past decade..

Pilot on a suicide mission! How did it he do it!? "I'm just a broken guy with a few screws loose"

A strange occurrence Friday night on the west coast..



Investigators are currently working to find out how a “suicidal” airline employee stole an empty Horizon Air turboprop plane, took off from Sea-Tac International Airport and finally crashed into a small island in the Puget Sound after being chased by military jets that were quickly scrambled to intercept the aircraft.

The entire event seemed like a ficitious conclusion to some Hollywood tale.. but it was real and played out before witnesses in Washington..

The Friday night crash happened because the 29-year-old man was “doing stunts in air or lack of flying skills,” the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said. The man, who was believed killed, wasn’t immediately identified.

Video showed the Horizon Air Q400 doing large loops and other dangerous maneuvers as the sun set on the Puget Sound. There were no passengers aboard. Authorities initially said the man was a mechanic, but Alaska Airlines later said he was believed to be a grou…

More STRANGER THINGS 3 reveals

Call 1985 the summer of love ... the cast will be 15.. malls are booming. Ollie North is selling farms for hostages .. and demagorgans are about to run wild again in Sheriff Hopper’s town..
Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) talked to US Weekly about when exactly the next season will be set. “I don’t know much about it because we get the scripts as we go along,” he said at the premiere of his new film Dog Days. “But yeah, it’s set in 1985, in the summer. It’s the summer of love — that’s all I can say, really.” 
Initial rumors had the third season playing the Fourth of July angle ... which could truly bring in lots of amazing political feel for the show, keeping the angle of government officials doing wrong in a small town..



We will also meet Bruce, a sleazy-sounding journalist played by Jake Busey, son of Gary. “If you think about the way culture has changed, life was a lot different in the ‘80s,” he told Bloody Disgusting. “This is a character who is fully living in that time period. He doesn…

Rumor mill: Lady Gaga turned down role in BIRDS OF PREY

Anazing musician Lady Gaga proved herself to be a formible actress during her role in AMERICAN HORROR STORY...But the rumor mill today churns with this: Scooper @DanielRPK says that Lady Gaga was offered the role of Huntress or Black Canary in Birds of Prey three months ago, but turned it down.




That’s too bad. We think she would have been excellent. And if the rumor is not true, movie makers should actually ask her..
The main female cast members in Birds of Prey will be Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, and detective Renee Montoya. Black Mask will be the villain.

The beauty of SOMEWHERE IN TIME: Bigfoot as viewed in the 90s

Yes, Art Bell is dead.. and Yes, suddenly Keith Rowland and Heather Wade are continuing their very public fight even in the post-mortem world of Bell..

Thankfully fans still have somewhere in time.

And tomorrow on COAST TO COAST AM's special SIT Saturday broadcast, this:

Somewhere in Time travels back to April 16, 1996, for a night of Open Lines with weird and bizarre stories - including a call from a man who says he killed multiple Bigfoot in 1973

I recall this show.. I was just a kid, and I remember distinctly sneaking out of my bedroom to listen to the radio as my father listened to it in the kitchen of the house.. It perked me ears up and created a fascination from that point on with Art Bell...
Speaking of that latest quip between ROWLAND and WADE: Earlier this week Rowland made a public comment lambasting a radio broadcaster playing reruns of MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT.. He said that Heather Wade will never come back. In the mean time a very public debate plays out on Wade's Fa…

NYE COUNTY CORONER FINALLY RELEASES REPORT ON HOW ART BELL DIED

An autopsy found the 72-year-old Bell’s death April 13 at home in rural Pahrump was from “multiple drug intoxication from his own lawfully prescribed prescriptions,” Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly’s office said in a brief Facebook announcement . It called the death an accidental overdose…


Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg, whose office in Las Vegas handled the medical examination, said Bell had the painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone, the sedative diazepam and the muscle-relaxant carisoprodol in his system.

High blood pressure and the lung disease chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder were additional “significant conditions” in Bell’s death, Fudenberg said .. The coroner said there was no indication of foul play..


Dead on Friday the 13th. And missed forever since, and well beyond these years.

It's official: STRANGER THINGS 3 to hit summer 2019

Stranger Things eight-episode third season will be released  Summer 2019. This is a little later than some had hoped or expected..

Explaining the reason for the delay, Netflix’s VP or original content, Cindy Holland, told reporters Sunday at the Television Critics Assococation summer press tour, “It’s a handcrafted show. [Exec producers] The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have worked really hard, and they understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year. And so they really want to take the time to get it right.”

Earlier this month the show released its first official trailer.. it features Hawkins' mall grand opening. It featured Steve at the AHOY ice cream location.. it features nostalgia galore. And it makes me hope that the battle takes place within the shopping mall. What an homage to the 80s it would be! And what a great location now that the kids, in their 80s way, are growing up and hanging out at the best place th…

LIFESTYLES OF THE ROYAL AND PASTA-LESS! Now Markle can't talk to her dad?

Last week we found out that the Duchess of Sussex was not permitted to have pasta anymore now that she is a Royal..

Apparently she's also not permitted to talk to her father, either.

The gossip FTP rags are going wild with this conjecture:

74-year-old Thomas Markle told London's Daily Mail on Sunday that his 36-year-old daughter has removed him from her life entirely as punishment for staging fake paparazzi pictures before the royal wedding and speaking critically of the royal family...

“I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely,” he told the Daily Mail during a nine-hour interview over three days. “I have no way of contacting my daughter.”

He said he hasn't spoken to the Duchess of Sussex in 10 weeks.

Markle claims that the phone number for her personal aides at the palace have been disconnected.


Josip Nikolai Peruzović -- or Nikolai Volkoff -- dead at 70

Pro wrestling Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff has died at the age of 70.. His villainous Soviet ring persona made him a heel Cold War-era crowds loved to hate..

World Wrestling Entertainment released the news on Sunday.

Volkoff — born Josip Nikolai Peruzović in the former Yugoslavia — rose to prominence in the ring during the 1980s, relentlessly taunting American audiences with his scarlet-and-gold outfits and Soviet flag-waving antics.
He mattered greatly to our pop culture..  And as an example, here is this:

Brian Christopher Lawler dead after trying to hang himself in jail

Brian Christopher Lawler, who went by Grandmaster Sexay in the WWE and the son of wrestling legend Jerry Lawler, is not dead after trying to kill himself in jail Saturday night, TMZ Sports reported.

According to various reports, the 46-year-old Brian Christopher attempted to hang himself in his cell outside Memphis. He was found by guards and rushed to a local hospital.

Brian Christopher had been arrested in Tennessee earlier this month for DUI after allegedly leading cops on a chase. They tried to pull him over, but he continued driving. When he did stop, cops say, he smelled of alcohol.


Lawler's mother, Kay, tells TMZ Sports Brian passed away Sunday surrounded by family and friends after being placed on life support Saturday night following a suicide attempt in jail.  He was surrounded by his father, Jerry Lawler, his brother, Kevin, and other family. 

MISSION: POSSIBLE: TOM CRUISE A HIT

IT'S BEEN A WHILE.. BUT TOM CRUISE HAS A HIT! IT MAKES HIS ON-SET INJURY ALL THE MORE WORTH IT


Paramount/Skydance’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout is opening to a franchise record of $61.5M (the same as we spotted yesterday), beating the previous series high from Mission: Impossible II ($57.8M) and 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation ($55.5M) !!
Fallout also stands as Cruise’s second best opening at the B.O. after War of the Worlds’ 3-day of $64.8M...
MOMMA MIA part 2 took second place.. but dropped 57% from last week. The movie appears to be a stinker above all others..
And finally, a film I thought would do better,  TEEN TITANS, didn't fair so well.
The movie opened to only $10 mil at 5th place. It cost $10 mil to make. So at this point it broke even.. I suppose okay.
We will see Tuesday when I take my seven-year-old son to see it. Will the NIGHT BEGIN TO SHINE or did it fade away with aging kids?

The blood moon

The sun vanished in parts of Russia last week.. it’s only fitting that this week features a blood moon..

FROM THE GRAVE! CARRIE FISHER RETURNING FOR STAR WARS EPISODE IX!

It's official.. the cast has been announced. While this is not the first time someone deceased from the real world was included in STAR WARS, it certainly is the most notable to date..
CARRIE FISHER will return.

Word is, previously unreleased footage of Fisher as LEIA ORGANA will be included in the next film..

“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” says director J.J. Abrams. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”
Also returning: Mark Hammill reprising his role as Luke Skywalker and Billy Dee Williams!
From the press release: 
Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joinin…

Full Moonves: Friday night shocker at CBS! Les accused by six women!

The New YORKER is busy at work tonight achieving social media mayhem.. Les Moonves, the powerful CEO at CBS for decades, has been accused of six women of sexual harassment.. Tonight the DRUDGE REPORT picked up the story and even gave Ronan Farrow a SIREN on the site..


From the report: In recent months, Moonves has become a prominent voice in Hollywood’s #MeToo movement. In December, he helped found the Commission on Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, which is chaired by Anita Hill. “It’s a watershed moment,” Moonves said at a conference in November. “I think it’s important that a company’s culture will not allow for this. And that’s the thing that’s far-reaching. There’s a lot we’re learning. There’s a lot we didn’t know.”  But Moonves’s private actions belie his public statements. Six women who had professional dealings with him told me that, between the nineteen-eighties and the late aughts, Moonves sexually harassed them. Four described forcible…

The Duchess of Sussex needs her pasta

....but it won’t happen under the Queen’s watch.
Markle is under house rules now
The socials are alive and churning with gossipy news from Buckingham Palace. Duchess Megan is facing a pasta ban!


According to former royal chef Darren McGrady, the queen avoids pastas and potatoes, opting instead for grilled fish or chicken and in-season vegetables, which may have been a difficult adjustment for Markle, who once told Delish that her favorite pasta dish, made with courgette, is "filthy, sexy mush."
