The HORROR REPORT identity crisis

You may have already noticed: The HORROR REPORT has been going through a series of weird changes over the past two weeks..
Here is the lowdown on the ever evolving face of this website..
The site has been hosted on Google’s BLOGSPOT for years (even though we had a server and space with Godaddy, we did it that way) .. A time came for a change, namely because I didn’t feel comfortable not owning the information I was posting. WordPress was the obvious choice..
But slam bam no thank you ma’am, the theme I chose originally for this site look mighty sleek and sexy, but crashed with a mighty thud and I pretty much lost all of my customization and potentially even some posts.
A distraught Horror Reporter turned to Tumblr, as I host a personal blog there and thought maybe the HORROR REPORT could be a good fit.
It was not..
A turn back to Google’s Blogspot was made this past weekend while I ironed out a few things..
For the past few days I have been working on a return to WordPress and hopefully (crossing my bony fingers) a theme that will be a good fit for this website and also one that will be stable and error free..
I am pretty happy to say, at least judging from my stats I can see, I did not lose any hits over the past few days. Though I imagine some folks may have been awfully confused at what they were seeing over the weekend. At one point the website looked like a return to 1998 HTML ..
I have been used to coding most of my website for the past 15 years.. Not sure what to make of this new WordPress theme yet.. I am using “raindrops” .. but at least we are closer in nature to what we want to see, and more stable.
So .. stick around. The scares go on.. Now that this pesky web change *(hopefully agaim)* is over..
Visit the Horror Report. Every day.

    Hi Bryan– This is the best format you’ve put up since the old one. Easy to read. And I still like the black and white and red. The one I really hated was with the pictures at the top that were different sizes: the writing kept jumping up and down as the pix changed. Just wanted to let you know (as I’m here every day).
    Thanks for all you do!

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 …
