SYFY continues a great tradition: The Twilight Zone marathon set to roll

Here is the full TWILIGHT ZONE marathon schedule from the SYFY channel.. »

It’s been the traditional way I’ve rung in the new year for a long time now.. Thanks to the SYFY channel (*then SCI FI) for all the wonderful memories of the Twilight Zone you’ve given me each and every New Years Eve.. 
I have already written down the times of my favorites.. 
Maybe I can get my wife to actually watch some this year if I tell her there will be advertisements for HER favorite show, LOST GIRLS.
Meanwhile.. the Monsters are Due on Maple street at 8:30 pm, the Shelter is prepped for 6:30 pm, and the Obsolete Man will cry at 1130 pm.. 
But the best happens at 12:00 am January 1, 2014 when the MIDNIGHT SUN blazes.. that one is my favorite.



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 …
