A year of what?

The HORROR REPORT, in boredom, asked a question days ago on this website: What will 2015 be? The choices in the polls were 1) change  2) horror, 3) old century murderous dictatorial rampages, 4) amazing technological advancements..

Of course some may argue those choices are a little limiting, they were quite frankly just put together in a last minute poll making list.

The opinions, however, were amazing. Among the emails and messages the HORROR REPORT received, the best are listed here:
"Actually probably all.
We just better hope we survive the next two years.."

I am with you on that.. Sometimes I just hope we survive the next two months..
Can we have a year WITOUT politics?

I agree with that sentiment.. I wish more of us would.
One bit of positive thought was given with this line, 

2015 will show better than 2014 economically and national standards of living.

That is something we can all hope for.. but what we probably don't hope for is the next thought:
More hurricanes, forest fires, lootings and burnings, earthquakes, fracking, government shutdowns, presidental maneuvering, young white girls set on fire, crappy movies, crappy music, new gadgets to replace your new gadgets, and about 10 celebrity marriages nobody really gives a sh*t about.

That short sarcastic line does sum up what the media fed us for the past 13 months..

And perhaps the best of all:
Change. Horror. Amazing technological advancements. Old century murders. Dictatorial rampages. Blah, blah, blah.

Blah blah blah indeed..

The winner, by the way, was 'change.'

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…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

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.
