A thirsty Thursday, but not a wonderful sequel.

NEWS FROM THE WORLD THAT IS. Seconds ticking away. The world that was.

This entire idea makes me sick.. The Slaying of Sandy Hook is a new game you're sure to hear about. The game allows you to reenact Adam Lanza's murderous rampage of innocent children .. A timer ticks down while you shoot the stick figures--the time representing the moment police arrive. You also get compared to the actual kill amount from Sandy Hook.. And to make the game even more insulting to humanity: You can play the game in 'gun control mode' ..

BP is paying trolls to harass online critics..

Ten Obamascare stories you'll need medical attention for after reading..

JFK: The vision of peace that never happened..

Three more 'knockout game' attacks take place in Philadelphia..

Smoke em if you get em: Mt. Etna erupting blew a vortex ring.. Hope it was as good for the magma as it was for the crust.

Dramatic footage shows volcano giving birth to new Japanese islet..

A glowing lake in Puerto Rico has mysteriously gone dark..

And runoff from the construction of a nearby water and sewer treatment plant is being blamed, at least in one theory..

School lunches in Canada: Parents being fined for not including horrid food in lunches? The irony..

New York City now has the tallest skyscraper. That means it will also be hit with the 'skyscraper curse,' a legend that says the city with the tallest building will be hit with economic chaos..

New evidence: Mars Moon Phobos Is a Captured Asteroid

Another stake in the heart of the 1990s and Internet infancy: AOL is now officially going to shut down Winamp. Blockbuster closing killed the 1980s, Winamp's death kills the 1990s once and for all (with Geocities gone, it was already on life support). I get new technology comes and old goes.. but pause in a brief moment of silence for Winamp. It served us well when the days of the net were new.. It did good.


It's not such a wonderful life.. A sequel is planned to the classic Christmas movie. And Paramount may take legal action! They are attempting to block the sequel to IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE because they own the rights to the 1946 classic.. Florida-based Star Partners and Hummingbird Prods already was lining up a cast and crew. Hopefully their life stays wonderful--but actually I also anticipate this movie may not get made. And should it? I say no.
It never really was a wonderful life anyway.

HUNGER GAMES mania striking..
The dark knight of young adult films..

Latin American horror film directors are now a force to be noticed..

AMERICAN HORROR STORY 4 to be set in either Santa Fe or New Orleans..



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…


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 …
