Where will we be when summer is gone?
It's almost gone now.. the DOORS sang about that in 1967 and in 2012 it's no different. For many people this is the final weekend before school starts.. college dorms are already filled with young adults trying to figure out what place they will have in life.. what role they will fill. This happens every time summer is almost gone..

So we are here, yet again: The final weekend in August. Sweltering heat will soon be a distant memory. Replacing that will be the cold winds of autumn.... soon winter blows in with an icy grip..

Until then. Summer's almost gone..

The world keeps booming -- just not the economy.. Now El Dorado County in California hearing constant loud booms

Strange noises around the world.. odd booms and shaking.. The earth is groaning and moaning.. 

This year odd occurrences of loud humming and trumpet sounds have come from Kiev to Moscow.. to Australia and to Clintonville, Wisconsin. The HORROR REPORT and many other sources have been paying close attention to these areas, along with the shaking and sinking Louisiana Assumption Parish bayou area--that situation began with odd booms that shook homes, too.

Enter into the equation now the newest example of odd noises and booms happening on the planet: The foothills of California.
According to local reports from CBS 13 in Sacramento California, there are loud booms taking place in the mountains of El Dorado County.. The noises are happening several times a week. Theories of thunder..sonic booms from aircraft.. underground earthquakes. But there are no official answers coming as to what the noises are or where exactly they are coming from.
One person said you can 'feel it in the ground.'

LATEST BOX NUMBERS: APPARITION crashes and burns.. OBAMA'S AMERICA 2016 surprises with strong numbers..

Half the country is prepping to watch all politics all week.. the half is probably trying to escape it along with all the ads. But are people going to the movies!? OR JUST GOING TO THE HILL for one last summer getaway before classes and schools begin again for another year?
Box off numbers coming in are not spectacular--unless you made OBAMA'S AMERICA 2016, in which case you're pretty stunned that it may come in a strong number 4 for the amount of theaters it was in and the lack of advertising it had..
Movies should come in as follows for the weekend race: 1: EXPENDABLES 2 2: THE BOURNE LEGACY 3: PARNORMAN 4: OBAMA'S AMERICA 2016..

Other films sinking.  The major flop of the year horror wise may be one of the most anticipated by some: THE APPARITION. Though a marketing campaign was attempted and Facebook fans 'liked' in droves, it seemed to never get off the ground.. only standing a ghost of a chance of doing well.. In APPARITION's case, it not only did poor but it did …

Latest Isaac models; Florida on alert.. then Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana..

Hurricane watch weekend.
Forecasters are closely monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Isaac.. as it slams across land and heads into the warmer waters of the Gulf, almost all prognosticators expect Isaac to intensity and become a full fledged Hurricane..
Here are the latest models as compiled by the website WeatherBellModels.com:













Latest guidance is beginning to converge on a likely path taking the center of Isaac onto land somewhere between the bubbling Bayous in Louisiana's sinkhole country, and the panhandle of Florida. 
Currently Isaac is hugging Cuba's coastline after hitting Haiti--and tragically killing at least three..

From Sunday through Monday, heavy rain and winds are expected to slam into the Southern Tip of Florida. Isaac will then move into the Gulf again, potentially strengthen, and move to the Gulf Coast line..
The model path predicted by the NOAA shows that Isaac will remain a hurricane into well onto land in Alabama..

High amount of health problems popping up in Japan

It may be correlation but not causation, but it is interesting to mention and think about. Could the ever ongoing Fukushima nightmare in Japan be worse than people think? The short answer: yes. But is the face 92% of Japanese having health programs in 2011 proof of that? I don't know.. It seems that the Fukushima Diary website is reporting it as though there is a connection, and we can only assume that there could be, but without proof I dare say we just don't know at this point.
We do know, however, that a pile of radiated wreckage is on a path to hit Hawaii and the West Coast. We also know that tuna and shrimp, along with other sea creatures, have been found with high levels of radiation. And we also know that butterflies have experienced mutations in the third generations in Japan.
So if 92% of people in Japan have health problems but the number was lower in the past? I can make an assumption that there is a connection. But assumptions do what assumptions do.. So I will not j…

This is America, 2012: Honey Boo Boo ratings rise as more and more people choose to laugh at others instead of bettering themselves

Apparently Americans like watching seemingly kind hearted people make fools of themselves on TV. After all, that somehow seems to be the real secret of reality television, doesn't it? You can safely sit on a couch behind curtains, close off the world, and flip on the boob tube and watch someone else be the fool.. watch someone else get laughed at.. watch someone else's life from a distance.
The latest example of our nation's ability to find strange programming and make it a hit comes from HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO, the show based on the child from Georgia pageant fame. The show is now gathering about 2 million plus viewers for TLC.. and now that the new child star of the "reality" genre is getting more fame and fortune, she is also being attached heavily throughout the web world. A girl, simply living her childhood, thrust onto camera and forced to be a star--and now she will have the cloud of fame that follows her beyond into age.

How fast time goes.. how quick warmth vanishes.. how soon the cold winds of winter will how

Greetings earthlings across the pale blue dot.It's the weekend. Are you ready? Summer seriously winding down.
The crickets are chirping loud.. I see some yellow tint to some leaves. I just can't believe that the long hot summer was so short..
This time of year may be the best. Now until October. Beautiful nights.. amazing mornings.. Sunny and warm but not oppressive.
But this time of year goes by rather fast, too.. Gone soon will be the noise of leaves rustling in a summer breeze. Soon a howl of cold wind
But we cannot be depressed. The midsummer night's dream turns into an autumnal depression.. followed by winter suppression.
But at least we have Christmas....... And the Mayan calender excitement on 12/22.. if we make it through December we'll be fine.

IT REALLY IS A POLITICAL SEASON

Earlier today, the HORROR REPORT thought long and hard about how a political season could equal box office bucks with OBAMA'S AMERICA 2016..

And now according to initial box office numbers on Nikki Finke's DEADLINE.COM it appears that the anti-Obama film is coming in first place in domestic runs! More than action! more than comedy! more than BATMAN! more than horror!

It's a political weekend. Republicans charged for their convention next week? Going to the box office before they fly to Tampa??

Under 2,000 theaters and the film already beating out bigger names..

Should be an interesting weekend..

Amateur hour: Someone thought it was a good idea to have an elderly woman restore a famous painting

And it went from an image of Jesus to .. an alien!

The art world is buzzing today about a repair job gone wrong. Officials wanted a 19th Century fresco by Spanish painter Elias Garcia Martinez to be retouched. Age had taken its toll. So why not hire on an elderly person to do it!? Nothing can go wrong with that.

Until this occurred:

It went very wrong..

Christ almighty, this got ruined.

The image became a blurry figment of someone's imagination. It appeared that Christ went from savior to monkey in just a few broad strokes. His mouth vanished and his beard was gone... His eyes went from looking to the heavens to pure black .. his nose thinned out ..

While people are angry at the woman, they are not saying she did it for spite..

I can't help myself but think of the MR. BEAN movie in which he attempts to fix the Mona Lisa after ruining it .. Maybe this woman should have called in Rowan Atkinson for advice..

Sinkholes and hurricanes: What if Isaac hits Assumption's bayou?

Anyone who predicts a definite path of Tropical Storm Isaac at this point should be probably be ignored at this point. While it's propert for officials in Florida to watch closely and warn all, weather models clearly indicate a shift westward has begun to occur with forecast tracks. As a matter of fact, some of them are not clearly not even near the Republican convention in Tampa, but instead heading to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico--maybe with an Alabama or even Louisiana impact.
Which brings up this into my mind: The sinkhole. The one that the HORROR REPORT and made other sources have been monitoring for months now, reporting about, thinking about, and talking about...? That sinkhole.. 
The latest on the Assumption Parish/Bayou Bubbling sinkhole is that Homeland Security is now monitoring with oversight..an explosive unit is on site.. One report is speaking about daily fines for Texas Brine, there have been evacuations, lawsuits, and now resignations..  People are not being…

It's a political year

In 2004, the Michael Moore film FAHRENHEIT 911 was a summer hit .. it bashed George Bush at just the right time--though Bush ended up winning the 2004 election, the film continued to sell well on DVD after its release..

This year, another political season, the movie OBAMA'S AMERICA 2016 is being released widely into the box office this weekend. I will be very interesting to see how it will fare in the 1,000 + theaters showing it..

The movie is already accounting for 35% of pre-sale tickets on Fandango, according to Forbes. It's facing horror film THE APPARITION and PREMIUM RUSH.. but chances are being, again, the right time for a political documentary to be released, it may do very well..

The movie has been heralded by Rush Limbaugh, the NATIONAL REVIEW, and other conservative media outlets. It's based on a book by Dinesh D'Souza--not an Obama defender.

If the reviews on the movie website ROTTEN TOMATOES is any indication, the result of the movie may only cause more anger …

THE APPARITION: Maybe it all comes down to Facebook likes?

The APPARITION isn't getting the wide release this week that PREMIUM RUSH is.. and it is not getting the same theater count that other horror movies of past summers had, either. But it is getting lots of Facebook likes. Perhaps in the modern age of social networking, that matters more? Maybe it counts for at least something?

MOVIES WITH BUTTER reports that THE APPARITION has been adding about 5,000 likes per day on Facebook while its competitor has been only adding about 2,000.

In only a few days there will be evidence as to whether the marketing campaign for Lincoln's APPARITION has worked or failed.

As reported yesterday, THE APPARITION is only appearing in 810 theaters while HIT AND RUN is opening in 2,870 and PREMIUM RUSH is premiering in 2,255..

WHEN MITT ROMNEY COMES TO TOWN: TAMPA STRIP CLUBS PREPPING FOR REPUBLICANS

There is a lot of fanfare this year about the chances that we could have the first Mormon president.. beyond that, the GOP platform is anti-gay marriage and pro-life.. But when Republicans party, they let their hair down and unfasten those striped ties.

The proof? Strip clubs in Tampa are prepping for the Republican presence. 
CNN is reporting this evening that while GOP officials are closely watching the track of Tropical Storm Isaac, strip clubs are getting their poles shined.  The strippers want the GOP to 'make it rain,' CNN says. CNN's profile also speaks about a roof view where you can get a 'quick launch' lap dance. Or one called a 'death lay.' 
CNN is also reporting in the same dispatch that strip clubs are playing on thought that conservatives are stuffy. Clubs offering the chance to 'party like a liberal' are popping up around the city..One place called Thee DollHouse is even offering a VIP entry with a government ID, according to their sign …

THE APPARITION set for release..

Will August be another magic month for horror? Scary flicks typically do good during the late summer. Jeepers Creepers became a summer sleeper in 2001. Ever since then it seems studios dump horror films into late August boxes hoping for quick cash as school kids and college folks are back in class.

Though horror is often slammed for not having many new ideas, THE APPARITION just may. Todd Lincoln did researcher with famed paranormal researched Joshua P Warren for the film--Warren is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM and is known around the paranormal world for his experiences and experiments on strange subject matter..

 The cinematographer was Daniel Pearl, who was known for his work on the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE reboot in 2003..

According to Lincoln, speaking to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY about the APPARITION, his new horror film is POLTERGEIST mixed with John Carpenter's PRINCE OF DARKNESS.. thrown into the mix is the potential reality of the 1970s' Philip Experiment..

If you're accused of killing the bees, buy the company that can say you did!

All is fair in business I suppose.. Monsanto has been long accused of having its product ROUNDUP linked the colony collapse disorder in bees. Which makes this information all the more interesting: Monsanto bought Beelogics, a research firm studying the bee die off around the world..
Now Monsanto will be able to have more control over the flow of information .. Their public relations will improve.. But will bees make a comeback?

He's not gonna take it

The headline reads: Dee Snider slams Paul Ryan

Apparently Paul Ryan used the song WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT at a rally in Pennsylvania. And Snider didn't like it at all.

He said: "I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my band Twisted Sister's song, 'We're Not Gonna Take It,' in any capacity. There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X."

Product placement for P90X? Sobering...

Tropical depression: Could the Republicans postpone their convention? Or even cancel!?

It's possible that if the track for Tropical Storm Isaac (by next week maybe a hurricane) continues to look ominous, the GOP may have to seriously reconsider having their convention.

The Wall Street JOURNAL reports, it could end up causing the GOP to postpone or cancel their convention next week!

Several differing tracks continue to appear in weather models--but many are taking the storm directly near or around Tampa by the start date of the convention.

This from the JOURNAL report:
On Wednesday morning, Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn raised the prospect that the GOP convention, scheduled to run from Monday to Thursday, might have to be cancelled. "Absolutely, we're prepared to call it off," he said in an interview on CNN.If the convention gets canceled, it would mean the storm coming towards Florida has dramatic and damaging potential.

A developing situation the HORROR REPORT will be watching..

The forgotten war? What war?

Perhaps America has war fatigue? Too much conflict and not enough time? Too many horrible stories and instead of paying attention we just zone out and pretend that they don't exist?

Either way the AP has an almost chilling account about how the war Afghanistan went from Obama's war of necessity to a forgotten one..

It's almost 12 years since we began the conflict in that nation after 9/11.. 12 years--over a decade. And since then Americans have tuned out of reality of war and turned on reality TV shows..

All the world's a stage, but Afghanistan lost its audience.

What does that say about the war? The media? What does that say about you, me, and everyone else?

Quite a bit..

Quite a bit..


FEARS THAT GOP CONVENTION COULD BE HIT WITH HURRICANE.. WHERE WILL ISAAC GO

It could be a wild Republican Convention. No, not because Jersey Governor Chris Christie is going to visit Tampa all you can eat buffets, but instead because a hurricane may take aim on the city just in time for Republicans to nominate Mitt Romney..
One would have to question the logic, in hindsight, of having a convention during hurricane season in a state that gets hit with hurricanes. As one comment on the HorrorReport.com said earlier today, it's like booking a convention in the winter time in Fargo, ND..
There are not yet forecasts that speak of where Hurricane Isaac, not yet a hurricane, will strike. However, Accuweather is among those watching closely and report tonight this: The worst case scenario from a Tampa standpoint would be if Isaac were to swing over the Gulf of Mexico, strengthen, then curve northeastward toward or just north of the city on the Florida west coast. However, even a northward path directly over the Florida Peninsula could still yield nasty local effects…

Former Marine sentenced to psych ward for Facebook postings

Those paying attention to the situation regarding a former Marine named Brandan Raub are scratching their collective heads.

He was apparently posting messages on Facebook about his dislike for the current state of America's government, including quips in which he spoke about revolution and posted videos showing he believed 9/11 was an inside job.

But when the FBI and Secret Service showed up to get him, they cuffed him and arrested him? took him? No that's not the right word. As a matter of fact, the agencies both say that they did not arrest him--though they cuffed him and took him away to a mental ward. As a matter of fact, as the story goes, it appears that the police arrested him for 'resisting' ...arrest, no not arrest. Resisting 'being taken into custody' for .. his own good? Or just to go to a psych ward? I don't know. But he was not arrested.

Right?
Just cuffed.
And taken. For something.
Facebook posts!

He was not read his Miranda rights. But why would he …

A potential disaster being watched: Will a hurricane hit Mitt?

Some political observers may think this year's Republican party is already a disaster, given comments about rape and others skinny dipping in ancient Middle Eastern seas, but a real disaster may be set to unfold just in time for next week's Florida Republican Convention.
Weather experts are watching an unfolding storm, still a tropical swirl in the Atlantic. If the storm forms and gets a name, it will be Isaac.
Yesterday, Accuweather forecaster Henry Margusity said he thinks that Isaac will form and potentially impact the United States. 
Today,  the real possibility that the storm could hit just in time for the GOP convention in Tampa is being thought about. 
Ironically, about a week ago, ABC NEWS reported on the chance of hurricanes hitting during the GOP party in Tampa, saying it would be a good possibility. That was before the storm  to be known as Isaac began to churn up ocean waters. And now new models are out of where Isaac could go. Maybe model runs bring the storm directly…
