Saturday night’s many main events

A few more news curating duties before turning off the ill-colored monitor.. the light from which has been making my eyes go dizzy over the past week. Not because of the aura of blue it emits, but instead because of the FTPed and HTMLed information that has been given to me on it.. news of the weird and wild, hurtful and harmful.. Ebola on a jet plane and an ambulance ride that the world watched. Obama vs Congress vs the Immigrants. Part 4. Justin Bieber. Ninja Turtles.. Crudeness, rudeness. Overt blasts to the past.. my mind is numb.

But not numb enough to ignore a few more tidbits of information this late Saturday night…

A CNN ‘ireport' shows us the moment when the now world famous Ebola patient walked into Emory University Hospital. The woman was there seeing her father. She heard about the Ebolaman .. she got the Ebola: She left her father to film history.. Not sure if that’s something I’d do. But she did..

There has been fear and loathing in Las Vegas. And also lots of fear over Ebola in Atlanta.. but here’s some facts: This is how you get Ebola, what happens when you have it, and why you die a short time after being infected. If the article was meant to quell fears, it did not of that for me.. instead it just increased my paranoia about Ebola being willingly being brought onto the shores ..

Top WHO officials say that Ebola is outstripping control efforts.. IN Africa. But in the United States, the United Nations tells us still, risk remains low of a Captain Tripps the STAND end of the world scenario. But that’s what they said in the movie too, then the Army blasted their way in to Rae Flowers’ radio show. And the rest was television and novel history.

Those in Toledo Ohio tonight have been shocked into a world without water.. warnings have been sounded: Don’t drink, and don’t even BOIL the liquid.. Apparently 600,000 people on the west end of the never clean Lake Erie have been told to avoid the basic ingredient to a good day: H20.  Water at a Toledo treatment plant tested positive for microcystin, a toxin known to cause liver and kidney damage.. Governor Kasich declared a state of emergency.. Residents are now forced to wait. Bottled water is going fast..

@Time magazine this week featured a cover story about ‘manopause’ and the male race to increase their manhood.. but we are not told tonight in reports that, quite a long time ago,that a decrease in male testosterone led the world to beautiful art and amazing civilized humans.  I knew the Bronies were on to something good…

Some interesting news from the GHOSTBUSTERS 3 universe.. apparently, VARIETY reports, the movie may feature an all-female cast.. Apparently Sony and Paul Feig are conversing over the possibilities.. Maybe even as we speak. It may be a good idea, too.. movies are trending more towards the feminine hero side.. THOR will be a woman, LUCY was the show last week.. and now a team of all women hunting SLIMER may be next..

Now that Bill Murray may be free of GHOSTBUSTERS, minus the predictable cameo we all hope for, he will be busy doing the voice of BALOO in the JUNGLE BOOK.

Here’s some raunchy stuff, since it’s a Saturday night. Forgive me the indulgence if you read it Sunday: Transgender to have a penis made from tattooed skin on his arm. Chances are, if you’re German in Germany, and a male, you have had penis enlargement surgery.. An anatomically correct doll has parents freaking out. And a mastiff dog bit off a man’s penis while he was in conversation.  Surely the painful subject of which will be the topic of conversation for many conversations to come.

Meanwhile read the first chapter in a book I have been cooking for some time.. the story of life, new life.. old life. Life. 

That’s the story until the morning’s glory.
So if you’re out and about, have a drink on me. I used to go out, but that’s so pre-internet. Right?

Enjoy the music.. play a song and dance. You are the show.

I wish I was enjoying the show like some of my friends tonight in Philly.. Next time, Billy Joel.. next time.

And I’m glad you enjoyed the movie thepete

Evenin’ all.

Top news August 2 2014

The HORROR REPORT received an email that this page may be unreadable when using CHROME in LINUX.. if you are having the same issues, please email me..

Too much news.. too little time.

A surreal day for whoever drove this ambulance.. it was carrying the infected patient with Ebola to Emory Hospital in Atlanta.. the entire world was watching.. every little traffic move it made, cameras were fixated and news networks covered live. The strangest drive on TV since O.J. ..



Doctor in Tennessee quarantines himself

Real horror: Latest Ebola wrap

Teenage Mutant Ninja Haters

FOXY FOX: It you don't like her body, that's 'your f*^king problem"

So you say you want to shell out cash to Rob Zombie to make a clown torture porn? Here’s your chance


While we are watching the friendly skies for Ebola to land.. maybe it’s already here?

A doctor named Alan Jamison put himself in self-quarantine in his Tennessee home. While there are no reports that he has Ebola, he treated Ebola patients in Liberia…

He did this Monday—meaning that this entire week, while the United States debated whether bringing Ebola patients to a hospital adjacent to the CDC was a good idea or not, it  may have already here all along..

CNN is reporting on the doctor.. and also the fact that he has exhibited no signs of the disease yet..

Worth reading: Jamison has no symptoms at this point.

CNN says,
He plans to be in isolation for 21 days, which is the incubation period for the disease or the time between infection and onset of symptoms.

"My last encounter with a patient who had Ebola was on July 19," he said. "I contacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on my arrival … and informed them I had been in West Africa and my history."

The father of three said his daughter picked him up from the airport and dropped him at home, where he’s quarantined himself and has had no contact with anyone since.

Good thing the CDC knows about this..

But I have a few questions…

How many other doctors, or people, are doing the same thing as Dr. Jamison? Should the CDC be more keenly aware, and are they even aware of everyone that may be doing this self-isolation treatment?  Should Dr. Jamison being transferred to the CDC location where these other two patients—who definitely have Ebola—are going to be housed ..?

But potentially even more troubling in my mind.. it’s a nice gesture to self-quarantine, but what about the plane he rode with others to get back to the United States?

There is one factor also worth considering—I did not know this until now. Ebola is only contagious after the 21-day incubation period.. That would make for a great sequel to 28 DAYS LATER, but it also creates a far greater chance for developed nations to prevent this disease ..

And let’s face it: The death toll is rough. 90% of those who contact Ebola die.. But a few hundred (conservative estimate, sure) of a few million people isn’t a lot.. Even in third world nations, where disease is abundant, Ebola is still hard to catch under the right circumstances.

The problem is the amount of distrust of governments in the African nations where the disease is hitting, and the refusals to be isolated and also, quite often, the fears of modern medicine..

Foxy Fox: Another day, another F bomb dropped

Megan Fox speaks: She enjoys showing off her body in movies.

She said,
I don’t feel ashamed or like I can’t be taken seriously while also wearing a tank top. If you don’t take me seriously when I’m wearing a tank top, that’s your f**king problem.

Another day in which she cusses like a sailor, insulting people who don’t like her.

Thumbs down again.

So you say you want to shell out cash to Rob Zombie to make a clown torture porn? Here's your chance

If you want to see killer clowns do some horrid and awful things in a movie, give Rob Zombie some money.

He wants it.. Whether he needs it is another question, and whether he should make such a film is a question I don’t even bother to ask when it comes to him..

We know this, though: Rob Zombie is getting into the crowdfunding game, and is asking fans for cash if they like a ‘fast-paced, mean dirty film for those who like it rough.’ He says..

He has launched RZ-31 on the site CNET reports some trinkets you can get for giving Zombie your money to make a torture porn movie:
In addition to offering the typical movie swag like key chains and stickers (which you can get for a $15 contribution), Zombie is upping the rewards game by giving away crew t-shirts ($50), the opportunity to have your name included in the credits ($750), and a chance to be an extra on the set ($5000). If you really have a thing for clowns and murder, you can shell out $10,000 for an executive producer credit.

For $1500 you can get a hold of one of the original crosses from Zombie’s flick “House of 1000 Corpses” or wait for it…a $2000 donation will bring you one of the original Michael Meyers’ masks from “Halloween,” of which, according Zombie, there are only 50 in existence. Fans have 59 days left to contribute to the film if they’re interested.

59 days left.. the clock is ticking.

31 is going to be a ‘kill or be killed’ type movie with no boundaries.. Zombie says a the clowns within will be a group of ‘vile, filthy, blood-thirsty clowns known as The Heads. They come in all shapes and sizes and each grows nastier than the last.’

Sounds fun.
If you like that sort of stuff, perhaps.

So .. have any cash you can send him? Key chains await as a reward..

Slick rollout on hold: Megan Fox Tells Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Haters To F**k Off »

A big thumbs down on the haters from Megan Fox.. the extra-shiny Fox said the colorful language during a press conference today .. the run up to the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES may be getting a bit stressful.. perhaps Michael Bay has been putting on the pressure for Fox to get even skimpier and skinnier.. Not sure ..

But the truth is this: She hates you if you hate her new movie..

She said this about the newfound online bashing of the newest TMNT:
Let me tell you something about those people. How much money didTransformers 4 make? Exactly. Those people can complain – they all go to the theater. They’re gonna love it – and if they don’t love it, they can fuck off, and that’s the end of that

Critics who have already been critical were quick to criticize and critique.. especially thumb raising is how quick Fox was to use some interesting language and express such raw emotions so few days before the well oiled rollout of the movie occurs..

Fox has been going throughout the world to promote the film.. She’s the star. She’s the face..and the body.

And now she’s the sailor, cussing on stage and hatin’ on haters.


This is how African newspapers are covering EBOLA.. 

NOTE.. The ‘burn all bodies’ headline in the lower left.. I think this sufficiently answers my question from last night is in which I asked what will be done with bodies that have suffered death at the hands of the outbreak: Burning.

Meanwhile: Africa has sealed off the Ebola epicenter. A little interesting that, after all the deaths, they are finally doing this..

The AFP reports this:

Opening the summit, WHO chief Margaret Chan told leaders that the response of the three countries to the epidemic had been “woefully inadequate”, revealing that the outbreak was “moving faster than our efforts to control it”.

"If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socio-economic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries," Chan said.

She described the outbreak as “by far the largest ever in the nearly four-decade history of this disease”.

"It is taking place in areas with fluid population movements over porous borders, and it has demonstrated its ability to spread via air travel, contrary to what has been seen in past outbreaks," she told the summit.

"Cases are occurring in rural areas which are difficult to access, but also in densely populated capital cities. This meeting must mark a turning point in the outbreak response."

The meeting came after Dubai’s Emirates became the first global airline to announce it was suspending flights to the stricken area, while the United States, Germany, France and Italy have issued warnings against travel to the three African countries.

US President Barack Obama announced on Friday that the United States will screen delegates travelling from Ebola-hit countries to Washington for a three-day Africa summit next week.

The summit must go on.
Captain Trips does not exist.

Willing to test the shot?

The U.S. government will begin testing on people an experimental Ebola vaccine as early as September, after seeing positive results from tests on primates, according to media reports on Thursday.

The National Institutes of Health’s infectious disease unit is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to put the vaccine into trial as quickly as possible, according to CNN and USA Today. The director of that unit could not be reached for comment.

So .. I’m curious to those reading.. would you such an experimental vaccine? …would a bigger crisis, and outbreak, make you more likely to take it?



It’s time. Ebola heads to America on a plane.. Arrival time: Saturday. CNN notes:
Ebola isn’t “some mystical pathogen (with) some bizarre mode of transmission,” the doctor noted, adding that it is transmitted similarly to illnesses like SARS or HIV. But while the Emory staff members are confident, that doesn’t mean they have experience dealing with Ebola, which the World Health Organization reports has infected more than 1,300 people and killed over 700 in recent weeks in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. In fact, no U.S. medical facility has had a known patient with the virus.

It’s all new … Here.


Ebola patients 'refusing isolation' »

This is one major reason this outbreak is so bad..
From all sources I have read: Those with the disease, or some who may get it, are either paranoid about their government’s actions or fearful of isolation, that the disease just continues to rapidly spread and countries unravel out of control..

CONGO’s President said that the disease is bigger than everyone..

And perhaps the best description is this: Fighting Ebola is like trying to change a tire in a hurricane..

Baby can you dig your man

Anyone who follows me or has read this website for any amount of time will know well that when I get worried about something, there’s a tendancy on my part to overkill the issue.. Ebola has been the latest bit of news getting me to tighten my tin foil hat..

The prospects of EBOLA being present in the United States—on purpose—gave me chills.. Yes, it’s Americans who obviously have the right to be in America, and we’re told the chamber fortress where the treatment in Atlanta will take place is safer than any place on earth.. but.. don’t you still get a bit of a chill hearing that Ebola is purposely being brought to the United States? That a hospital will treat patients here? Maybe I am too ‘American’ in my thought—-but to those who think I don’t care about Africans suffering the affliction, you’re wrong. I have been paranoid about this for years and have constantly worried about it, and reported about it… The latest outbreak is the worst ever seen.. Hopefully it burns itself out.. gets under control…

Let’s hope Captain Trips will not exist.

And yes, the man who discovered the virus says that he would sit next to someone on a train if they were infected with it.

But would you?
Would I?

There is chaos constantly on the planet earth.. It reminds me more than a bit like the opening scenes of the STAND, or opening paragraphs depending on how you discovered it..

EBOLA is coming to our shores.. it’s real, it’s on purpose.

Let’s hope and pray that all of those rational people saying there’s nothing to see here are right.

But .. until then..

Baby..can you dig your man!?

Here's a set of news articles worth a morning read. Or dreadful avoidance..



Hell in Ebola ward: Doctor tells UK MIRROR of his 24/7 shifts trying to save pregnant Ebola patients..
How different parts of the world are responding to Ebola threat..

EBOLA prevention 101..
Monsanto invests in Ebola treatment drug company..

The man who discovered EBOLA, Peter Piot, says there's no likelihood of outbreak outside of current region, and says he would sit next to victim on a train..

Death from Ebola is similar to a horror movie about zombies.. people convulse a they bleed from every orifice of the body.. to the point of where the blood becomes weaponized.. it flings across rooms and infects anyone standing nearby, a reason the virus spreads quickly..

The strange woman in black may have finally reached her destination.. She has been roaming the countryside of small Appalachian towns.. She is now in Winchester, VA.. According to media reports, God told her to go to Winchester. She's there now..

The Hanover happening

There is a lot of national attention on hauntings lately.. the latest comes from York, Pennsylvania..

The HORROR REPORT linked information about this story earlier this week.. The haunting, at least as it's being described by those in paranormal circles, revolves around a home owned by a woman in Hanover, Pennsylvania.. she says that her humble abode is filled with evil spirits. Two photojournalists, we're told, were skeptical of the claims. Until they experienced something strange themselves..

Here is the story from FOX 43:

At one point, the owner of the home tells the spirit to shut a door.. on camera, the door shuts. Another moment was captured where one of the reporters felt a scratch on his arm..

Another moment captures what reporters say is a demon's hand..

Finally, the homeowner describes a 7-foot-tall shadowman who prowls the property..

The Travel Channel showcased the home on the program THE DEAD FILES..

Discernment .. you be the judge. But none of us, unless you're a homeowner with a haunting, is in this situation. It's tough to judge something you have not gone through..

Skepticism is healthy.. but not so much that you end up with scratches on your skin..

Fox sets out to advertise TMNT to the world

Expect to see lots of Megan Fox over the next month. She will be busy advertising the newest installment of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.. She will be most likely be hiding her thumbs, and trying to recover the movie from the terrible decision of releasing a September 11 looking image for the September 11 premiere in Australia..

The movie is being heralded by some .. COMIC CON has gone wild over Megan Foxmania.. And now a skin-tight dressed Megan Fox is shining like a star in Latin America where she ushered in the premiere of the film there..

She blew kisses.. she posed for the camera.. she lit up the room..

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. and there's no doubt the audience group that is being attracted to the movie..

But for some, this film will be a bust.. a blip on the radar of Ninja Turtles lore..

And to even some more, Megan's looking plastic lately.. something oddly surreal about her once very real face..

But for now she's soaking up the sun.

The NINJA TURTLES aren't.. They are the back story as Megan struts around the globe at premiere after premiere..

The success or failure of the newest NINJA TURTLES movie doesn't rely much on them.. instead there's two thumbs up, or down, that are holding the film..

A Ninja Turtles fail

The building up the new TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES film has been hotter than a pepper sprout in Texas.. Megan Fox, with her thumbs, has been busy talking to COMIC CON attendees about her role, and Bigfoot.. the posters are everywhere.. the new style Ninja Turtles action figures are everywhere, too..

The American release of the film is August 8..
The Australian release is September 11.. which makes the next part of this story even more awkward..

PARAMOUNT PICTURES AUSTRALIA went and did this: They tweeted an image of a burning skyscraper with the Turtles jumping from it, along with this: "Check out the official poster for #TMNT in cinemas September 11"..

Yikes!! Stop the presses... Cowabunga ..

What were they thinking?

The less than tactful image was in social media circles for quite some time, in Internet time, before people snapped back and stormed the virtual servers where the poster was being replicated.

Apologies ensued..

Paramount said in a statement, post feeding frenzy on Twitter:
We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia. Combining that image and date was a mistake. We intended no offence and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use.

Oh, and yes: The Tweet got deleted..

But the poster will live in infamy..

UK SUN slammed by critics for demon mark story

The UK SUN reported a child had a sign of the devil on his chest.. The HORROR REPORT somewhat scoffed at the story..

But now the UK SUN is being slammed for slashing the child on the front page of the paper with the sensational headline that he has the mark of the beast on his chest..

This is how the UK GUARDIAN reported the incident:
The Sun is facing a barrage of criticism after featuring a half-naked four-year-old boy with a "mark of the devil" on his chest on its front page.

The tabloid's "exclusive" story featured unpixellated images of the child and his mother.

The paper was accused of starting a witch-hunt and endangering the child after publishing the story with the headline: "BOY, 4, HAS MARK OF DEVIL."

The child's mother is quoted saying: "Just looking at it made me shake, thinking something unnatural had visited my boy. Something or someone made the sign on him but we just can't explain how."

The story goes on to explain that the mark appeared on 23 May and had gone by 16 June. The story does not state if the child's parents were paid for the story.

Critics have slammed the paper, along with Rupert Murdoch...

My first inclination when I saw the 'mark' was that it was placed on the child by someone.. was it abuse.. was it something more than a just lucky mark on the right place?

But the real problem may be that the child's face has been splashed around the world. The HORROR REPORT sarcastically called the UK SUN 'reliable' .. reliable sources may not be found.

Unless Rupert hacked your phoned.
