Freaky Friday: All the news and not a drop to drink

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 8 2013

It has been a long and winding week.. winding down now ..
Fridays come so sudden, though.. It seems that the weekly process of wishing away Monday makes life quickly slip into a fast-motion experience, with the bad flying by but the good also vanishing just as much..
And before you know it? Thanksgiving will have come and gone.. Christmas, too.. It's all so rushed. So fast. So scary.
And with that, it's on to the scary news of the day, the moment, the hour.. all unfit to print, and presented in HTML, beamed across the landscape via an internet connection, and landing onto your computer screen, or handheld device, with rapid fire motion.. Read the headlines and weep.



The HORROR REPORT and other media sources have been focusing a great deal on Typhoon Haiyan. This monster killer has now struck the Philippine islands--it may get stronger and deal a blow to China or Vietnam. But in the mean time, it's impressive to look at some information about how bad the storm was. At one point, Haiyan had gusts as strong as 235 mph! There are power failures and so far three deaths--that number is sadly going to rise, if predictions are true.








For that, and other things, the buck has stopped. And Obama said sorry.


It's about time: The FDA is banning trans fats.. Now can they look again at aspartame and perhaps HFCS, or will that take five more decades, too?
Speaking of food, it's not all bad. As a matter of fact, there are some that refresh the body--and mind..



Like we didn't know.. TEPCO now admits that Fukushima radiation is about 95% higher than reported.. Thanks for the honesty, TEPCO.
Things are also going to get a little more dicey as the fuel rod replacement project is about to begin.. And get this: A big quake at Fukushima could force the American west coast to evacuate! That is quite a fearful talking point.. Whether there will be any concrete answers or not, Saturday night's COAST TO COAST AM with John B Wells may be worth a listen.. It's a roundtable relating to Fukushima.. I guess that coverage is better than no coverage--and no coverage is exactly what has been happening in the United States media..

The Virgin Galactic billionaire will have a live performance on TV.. Will it be like the spacewalk in 1969? ....did we really even go to the moon? Let's no go there.

A winter storm targeting NEW YORK CITY developing for next week. Models are models. I say it's too soon to tell..

The latest in the Bieber fever world.. Justin had sex with a girl in Brazil, and she snapped his photo to prove it. Apparently he likes to snuggle with his red hate instead of his mate. Just remember, all the world's a stage. And don't be Bieber's pawn--I say this whole photo and story was a set up only to add to the image that Justin Bieber wants people to have .. he's a star, baby. Don't belieber any of it.






CHRISTMAS 2015 PRESENT: Star Wars: Episode VII finally has an official release date: December 18, 2015..


Ten of the most unconventional horror movie monsters.. And speaking of horror movie monsters that aren't decorated with gore and face paint, one of my favorite villains ever in a horror flick was the old man from the movie THE CHANGELING. That movie was sad, scary, and disturbing.. It's worth a watch if you've never seen it.

  1. the changling scared me as a kid, but when I went back and watched it I was bored. See what modern horror has done to me?

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 …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
