The weather models are beginning to converge on Sandy's track

And the worst case scenario appears to be developing. Sandy is expected to hook back to the coast and significantly impact the East Coast.. This weekend is the time to prepare .. I'll be ..

Interest and intrigue peaking: Will Sandy be a tropical dud or be a Halloween fright?

The jury is out, weather models are still ferociously divided and changing constantly. What is clear though is that if all thing phase together in a scary way it could be a storm for the records and surely be the Grinchette that steaks Halloween. Or nothing more than a dud in the water.. Trick, or treat? Sandy will decide..

Solar blast from AR1598

As we reported just days ago, sunspot AR1598 had the potential to produce some major M class flares.. On October 23 it surpassed expectation with an X.1 class flare--some earthly technology may be impacted over the coming 48 hours, but the lack of a CME means that no aurora will be occurring from the event..

There are possibilities however that the sunspot could further affect the planet earth.. AR1598 is slowly rotating to be in the direct view of the planet..

Space watchers say another venting of solar activity could occur within 24 to 48 hours..

ALL THE ACTIVITY HAS LED TO THIS: $30 MIL 'WEAK-END'.. MUCH LESS THAN EARLY PROJECTIONS, FILM MAY BE SUFFERING FROM BAD REVIEWS AND STALE STORYLINE

It's a good domestic open for the fourth installment in the horror franchise but the $30 mil estimate is far lower than projections made Thursday that the movie could surpass $45 million total. Despite the somewhat weakened numbers compared to previous PARANORMAL releases the green light has been given to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5.. You read that right. Nikki Finke has more details..

Dreaming of another white Halloween?

It may not happen, but here is a weather forecast run from tonight's GFS model for Halloween night:



The white on the map is the forecast snow.

Just when you say it can't happen stop and recall Halloween 2011.

It happened then and can again.

As for me I'm nor hoping for it this early.

TAKING ANOTHER LOOK AT HALLOWEEN 3, THE SEASON OF THE WITCH

Years ago, I would host and attend regular movie parties. We'd sit and watch awful films, laugh at plots, mock the narrative, and just have genuine fun. It was like MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 with a bunch of immature brats and younger adults who wanted to stay young--all of us were not paid for our efforts, but I dare say we came up with good comedy. If only iPhones and YouTube were available in the late 1990s, we'd have great podcasts. Maybe we would have been sued by companies for copyright issues.
One film caught our attention early and became a long standing joke for life: Halloween 3, the Season of the Witch.
If you never saw it, don't be fooled by the name. It has nothing to do with the lunatic killer Michael Myers, and no it was not made by Rob Zombie. This movie was from director John Carpenter. He didn't want to create another Halloween starring 'The Shape' so instead he changed the story. This one features a mask making company called Silver Shamrock …
