2014's first case of the Mondays

MONDAY JANUARY 6 2014

I'm still trying to get used to writing '14 instead of the unlucky 13. That may take some time.. If you see the wrong year printed just let me know. But don't all years somehow blend together?
And now onto the news that matters..

Cold times: Newfoundland in massive blackout..

Searching for the Northern Lights in Alaska..

Noses and lips being cut, mass rape, and public rape; brutality against Afghan women is at a 'record level'..

Mutilated by a machete: The violence in the Central African Republic is getting worse.. and children are especially those feeling the horrors of war.. The story is very difficult to read. On Saturday night, I posted a link to a story regarding children being beheaded in the CAR on my personal Facebook page with the subtext: "While you were watching football." I got one comment and that was it. Zippo. We need to stop ignoring Africa.. Especially when tiny innocent children are being hunted like dogs ..

A cold United States went to the movies this weekend.. they were not looking for scares, though.. FROZEN beat PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5..I never gave a January release of a horror film much promise.. although there was one gem from a decade ago that did very well in January, DARKNESS FALLS. But a fifth sequel is certainly not original enough to score..

Here is a very interesting story from SALON.COM about Ronald Reagan and his constantly chipper mood.. According to the SALON article, Reagan's optimism was shaped by Manly P. Hall, a famed occult thinker..

Facts about how much time people spend on social networks..

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
