THE PURGE reality show

Police Concerned About Flash Mob Violence Based On Horror Movie »

Social media posts promise violence in Florida, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

The story linked here serves as a collection of headlines from various states—states where people have been posting social media announcements about “purges” to take place in the respective cities where the Tweets and messages are coming from.. AS notes, Florida, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania are among the states where police are monitoring the situation …

The horror movie where the ‘purge’ is stemming from is, none other than THE PURGE.. the sequel to the original film was released this summer and had respectable box office numbers..  The movie was less gruesome horror and more social commentary—rich vs poor and the government suspending all police protection to allow for  a ‘purge’ is the plot..

While this new social media purge scare may be more hype than upcoming horror, it’s noteworthy that so many places and police forces are monitoring the situation. And just a brief stroll through morning headlines each day may showcase the reason why it should be a concern of law enforcement—times like these, there aren’t many reasons to take things for granted..

In the areas where the social media purge is being spoken of, police are announcing that they have contingency plans to deal with any issues.. I know there are lots of ill will feelings towards police after watching the mess they made in Ferguson, but we need to support social justice, law enforcement, and order.. It’s why America works.. It’s what made us work to begin with…

It feels like a long hot summer.. the tensions within this nation is palpable.. The rhetoric across this country is emotional and cruel..

A cruel summer.

The fabric of this nation is tearing.. I fear that there aren’t any seamstresses left to fix it.




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 …
