Forgive me for having some prudish Halloween opinions, but I have to get this off my chest

Halloween costumes are being purchased from sea to sea.. coast to coast.. and all places in between..

The Western World has a way of celebrating dark days like All Hallows Eve in a purely capitalistic style--mixed with overdone sexuality and outfits too skimpy for some robust women to even get them above their thighs.

This year's most popular costume so far? Sexy Big Bird. Does Mitt Romney approve or would he cut the funding?

Toddlers in Tiaras.. Honey Boo Boo. Move on. We have Big Bird...

There are some who are worried about the present day sexualization of the girls' Big Bird outfit. And Bert and Ernie too.. Some may roll their troll eyes at people who think that the sex-charged culture is overdoing its tendency to take more Chinese-made fabrics off of younger girls, they will say those who slam the skimpy designs are prudes, but think about the facts that surround us.. Pedophilia is alive and well. As a matter of fact, there have been countless news stories in the past few wee…

The great debate part 2: VP Joe Biden takes on Veep wanna be Paul Ryan. It turned into an hour and a half of fighting, Biden's smiling, and Ryan's plighting. Another great night of TV for political talking heads.. but what did Americans get out of it? Ask yourself that.. minus the spin, take away all the style, eliminate the talk about Biden silently mouthing that Ryan is 'full of shit .. and what do you have left? Did it sway your vote?

Severe weather having serious impact on the United States..

Remember the Wyclef Jean allegations? Those rumors he was not spending money his charity was collecting on Haiti earthquake efforts? Well now his charity is closed. And the New York TIMES is reporting that Haiti found little help in Jean's efforts..

Alert: Be aware if you are in the Midwest this weekend, there are severe storms expected along with a strong threat of a tornado outbreak.. Severe weather for the year is not over yet. Prepare now

Strange noises heard in Louisiana.. video posted on YouTube

The tale of the tape. Or in this situation the tale of the YouTube upload.

A YouTube user 0ToolingAround0 uploaded a video to YouTube on October 7, 2012. Video showcases a dark scene in Louisiana with a haunting earth moaning sound, not similar to the Kiev noise or others, but in this situation like a distant motorcycle race or a roaring sound coming from somewhere in the distance.. No horns or trumpets. Just a deep moan of foreboding trouble.

The user writes in the description:
The time was about 1:30 in the morning and this noise had already been going for a while. I decided to see if our camera could pick up the audio. Not sure what it is but I got in trouble last fall when I heard this noise every night and tried to go find where it was coming from. It sounds like it's coming from the sky and this time its twice as loud as it was last fall. I know it sounds mechanical in nature but almost sounds like some machine is flying in the sky but just hovering. And when the noise gets lou…

EMERGING ARTIST: THE COOL SOUND OF LIBRICIDE

The HORROR REPORT is your typical reserve for scary movies and real events, horrific stories of ghostly tales.. even as we had on yesterday a mixture of Lady Gaga, Elvis hauntings, and dead skin cells floating around New York City. But we also have a deep appreciation of music and often are trying to find newer better stuff. 
I discovered some of LIBRICIDE's music videos on YouTube.  The band describes itself as a progressive rock/fusion band out of New York City. According to it's website they do some touring around New York and now and then Pennsylvania. 
I was struck by the music.. the great sound, the professional talent that the band seems to possess. Plus that, the YouTube account also features some acoustic songs and remakes of others, including one of WISH YOU WERE HERE by PINK FLOYD. Another song called SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER has a fun and melancholy feel to it ..  As one comment says it sounds very Foo Fighter-ish, but still maintains its own original sound..

Scary new numbers: Deadly meningitis outbreak increases to 91

On Sunday, US health officials reported 27 new cases of the deadly disease.. Now 91 cases. 7 dead.  All from a painkiller--a steroid that has led to crisis within the states where the disease  is hitting..

The source of the steroid injection that is causing this outbreak is from a New England company from Farmingham, Massachusetts. The company name is Compounding Center Inc.

The company has now issued a voluntary recall on all products.

VOLUNTARY!? You have got to be kidding.

91 being hit with meningitis linked to a steroid injection from its company and it's all voluntary?  See something amiss? See how pharmaceuticals have been permitted to dominate with greed but no creed?

The hunt for more victims is now underway .. Don't think for a second this will stop at 91 cases..

Could this possibly explain all those booms?

Things that go bump in the night have been making headlines for months. Towns hearing odd noises, booms, loud bangs.. Cities hearing the same.

And now comes this: An explanation of some noises coming from below the crust. According to new research: Magma creeps up through a crack in the Earth's crust and mixes with water. When it does it sets off a series of explosions, sometimes for hours, sometimes for weeks.

I doubt this new model could explain all noises away. But it's a start.

He ain't nothing but a hound dog

There may be some who say Elvis still lives, but others admit the truth: The once amazing star of music lore is long gone. But is his spirit?
That is what a paranormal team is looking in to right now.. According to rumor, Elvis Presley's ghostly spirit may be frequenting the location where the 1960 movie FLAMING STAR was filmed. He was in that film.. It's not the Buckhorn Motel at 5900 East Main Street in Mesa. This weekend, with this new story, it's getting a ton of attention...
The Arizona Paranormal Investigations team will conduct a session research at the site.. (What better time of year than October to do that, of course). But this time, the public is invited to attend the 6pm to 9pm 'investigation' at the Buckhorn.. persons are being invited by the Mesa Historical Museum--as it is a fundraiser.
Don't get me wrong. I am sure folks are "all shook up" about the chances that Elvis has not left the building--and I mean absolutely no offense to the Mesa…

Pretty cool stuff: If Voyager left our solar system it's another step for the human race

There is more good evidence to suggest that Voyager has indeed exited this solar system according to reports

Think of that for a second. A man made hunk of junk is far far away and never to return .. It's seeing things all of on this planet may never in our lifetime. It's going far beyond where any human has gone. Is it a UFO now for some faraway planet?

The implications are enormous. If truly in fact the Voyager is eying another place in space and synod the confines of our little home in the universe..

Gossip rags in feeding frenzy after NYC inspection says Lady Gaga's restaurant isn't clean

The Smoking Gun website started it all when it began trickling out information that the New York City restaurant owned by Lady Gaga and her family received several citations in a recent inspection.. The early October inspection of Joanne Trattoria received several infractions along with serious contamination warnings.. One commenter on the Smoking Gun article joked that she'd rather eat at Joanne Fabrics..

So now on the Internet a firestorm ensues.. One mocking Gaga and family over dirty conditions.. One mocking Gaga over her weight gain by eating at the family business too often. Yes the media feeding frenzy of gossip rags and superficial websites can be cruel.

What is clear is this: The NYC eatery needs to clean up some seriously bad conditions for the safety of its patrons. And also clear: Regardless of whether it does the is guilty again of propping up a star and then tearing her down.

But with this go around on character assassination at the hands of paparazzi and trash pubs, …
