Teenage mutant ninja summer: Megan Fox and her half shells

Get ready for heroes in a half shell. My son is already enthralled by the minute plus trailer for the NINJA TURTLES movie with Megan Fox coming out this summer.. Although I have read a few sources that are not as excited as today's youth are with the Michael Bay rethink of the TURTLES..
And others are providing harsh commentary on Megan Fox' abilities to transform into April O'Neill. The only thing I really noted about the trailer was the lack of substance, but instead the reliance on big action bombs and blasts and Megan Fox's face. Not three seconds of the trailer went by without seeing Megan Fox ..

It seems that every time the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES come around, they get bigger. This one is no different. It appears that Michael Bay made them absolutely huge, as though they were steroid-using weight lifting heroes in a half shell .. Maybe too big?

As a student of the 1980s and 90s, the cartoon featured turtles who were short and fun.. As a matter of fact, even April O'Neill was taller than them. Not this go around, though.. Michael Bay made them ugly and huge.. They looked more like alligators than turtles.
And Megan Fox looks more like Megan Fox than April.
And Michael Bay looks like Michael Bay.

But does TMNT look more like Pearl Harbor than a hit?

Will Megan Fox be all thumbs?

Will the new imagined turtles scare kids?

Time will tell, this summer...

The trailer here:



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 …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
