Samhain Eve

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 30 2013
ON MORE DAY 'TIL HALLOWEEN. SILVER SHAMROCK

This gives me hope in humanity. All the fear and doom and gloom with Hurricane Sandy coverage, and this occurs: A horsehead jogger gets on TV 
A year of nothings: Sandy survivors see no path home.. still, one year later..
It is actually pretty hard to believe that it's has been a year already since the massive Superstorm hit..Should you be interested, there is some archived information from last year on both THE HORROR REPORT and my personal website Coalspeaker .. One year since those winds destroyed and those floods killed.. A year goes by fast--but for those who still see no sign of recovery, it must have been a very, very long year..
Winter 13-14 Nor'Easters could spell disaster for Sandy victims..


The latest from St Jude: 15 dead.. That was another historic storm, one year to the same time frame that Sandy struck the North American continent..

The sun has suddenly become active: More big flares are firing off.. And maybe some more to come.

Just in time for the holiday season: Food stamp cuts. And a Food Bank CEO suggests that those cuts could spark food riots..

A report claims that milk prices could skyrocket to $8 a gallon is farm bill is not passed..


Rand Paul set to block Janet Yellen's nomoination with audit the FED pitch..

Obama knew that millions of Americans would not be able to keep their health insurance..

Grill on the Hill: Sebelius testimony at Congressional Hearing about Healthcare.gov glitches..


The Cardinals' plane grounded with mechanical problems.. That curse that used to be over the Red Sox doesn't have a home anymore. Every team that plays them better watch their bats..

Girl kills herself after her parents ban her from Facebook..


This is a bizarre idea.. The United Nations is planning to fight asteroid with "Committee on Peaceful Uses of outer Space" .. And just in case that plan doesn't work, the big shots in big leagues have their backup plan for the 1%: The artic bunker with a doomsday vault featuring every seed from everything on earth. Yes, mankind will persevere.. even if 99% get wiped from the planet..


Why are you (*am me*) always tired? A website gives us some ideas.. They include not drinking enough water, being low on B12, or lots of other possibilities. What about just getting four hours of sleep a night, I did not see that one on the list..

Peru reopening UFO investigations..


A woman believes that she was healed by a ghost, and also goes on to claim that she has a photo to prove it..She said that the 'White Lady' in a church during a family summer holiday.. Does this photo prove that a ghostly angel may have assisted in healing someone, or is it proof that 'mind over matter' is stronger than we think?


All thumbs: New CALL OF DUTY ad will feature Megan Fox..

Religious scholars join horror movie buffs in St. Louis for another look at the film THE EXORCIST..

Batman making horror movies better! This is a pretty fun video..

Man trying to revive Detroit neighborhood Halloween..

A huge Halloween weather system set to impact large area..


Samhain set: Witches are the most popular costume in 2013, princesses for kids. Not making the list: The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. I frankly think they were the most popular this year, since we could not find any for my son in a 100 mile square radius. I guess the best gauge for that will be so see if any heroes in a half shell end up joining Ayden in night life trick or treating..

THE MOST POPULAR POSTS ON THE HORROR REPORT IN THE LAST WEEK

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 …

WE LEFT CAMPION OFF THE ARMY BASE AND NOW WE HAVE A PROBLEM IN ARNETT.. SOMEONE NEEDS TO FIND STU REDMAN..

Real news has become surreal.. I find many headlines of our current day to relate back to THE STAND.. I know the comparison is a little fuzzy, and my overdoing it may be annoying to some. But when the strange similarities to me are striking.. The STAND starts in Texas. And in real life Texas is the center stage for the Ebola scare. And even worse, the endless stories of people 'coming back to life' are getting bizarre--though we can assume that parts of Africa cannot truly pinpoint the cause of death, so somene coming back to life is moot: The person probably wasn't dead. At least we hope they weren't.. Though SNOPES can tell us it's a hoax, try to explain the high strangeness of ABC NEWS filming a dead man and suddenly seeing him moving..

Continuing to the real news of the day (though it seems like fiction half of the time), focus is now turning on how Thomas Duncan got inot the United States. The Washington POST is giving us an hour by hour synopsis of what happen…
