Freaky Good Friday

The story of the sunken South Korea ferry has been on our radar--it is tragic and pointless that so many probably lost their lives in such as accident. But news today just got weirder: Prosecutors are seeking an arrest warrant for the captain of the ship--the man who said sorry but also who apparently may not have been in command when the ferry went down.. And this: The high school principal who was among the rescued has been found dead. Hanging from a tree in an apparent suicide..  According to reports, he was found hanging from a tree where relatives of the missing have been camping out .. The events are going from tragic to incomprehensible.. What did this Captain know--or what didn't he? The world is watching..

The ferry sunk at sea.. the plane went missing on then planet. News on Flight 370 has turned into a trickle.. A robotic sub is trying to find the plane.. But it has not yet. And maybe will not..

Update: Michael Egan, Bryan Singer's accuser, alleges a number of rapes by Hollywood moguls..  Egan said the FBI and police were made aware of the allegations in 2000, but nothing came from those cases.. and something similar to what Corey Feldman has been saying for years: Allegations are being made in this case that Egan and other minors were 'passed around like pieces of meat' at the supposed sex orgies.. The real question: What does FOX do now about the release of X-MEN 2?  It's release date is next month.. And FOX is left scrambling and Singer has skipped this weekend's WonderCon Fanfest..  the joke already is being made: X-MEN 2 should be renamed XXX-MEN ..  Fanboys and fanmen are already debating the movie release--and the Singer allegations. Just look at how heated the comments thread is becoming on AINT IT COOL..



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 …

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…
