THE TRUE HORROR OF 'LAZARUS EFFECT'

The LAZARUS EFFECT showcases the newfound popularity of reanimation horror.. WIRED’s Jordan Cruccihola examines this premise in an article posted today, saying
“Reanimation horror is not the most populated of sub-genres. We’ve surely had more cabins in the woods, unbeatable super killers, and haunted houses. But reanimation has a special place in our hearts thanks to its scientific roots. Sure, it’s all ridiculous science with little to no connection to reality, but there are still a lot more lab coats than in your standard-issue slasher. And if there’s one thing we wish there were more of in horror flicks, it’s lab coats..”  
An the author is dead on right! The LAZARUS EFFECT, being released this weekend for public consumption, has an interesting premise: A group of medical students find a way to bring the dead back to life. It’s a horror classification, but easily travails into the science fiction category as you read more about the idea.. And really, we are living in this world.

The message of IT FOLLOWS explored

IT FOLLOWS trailer lays out rules for upcoming horror film.

The movie is highly anticipated.. it’s a modern movie about the dangers of teenage sexual promiscuity. Instead of exchanging bodily fluids that lead to an STD, the couple involved will become victims of a sexually transmitted CURSE.. that follows.

I have read a number of accounts and early spoiler information about this movie–it looks to be one of the freshest and most creative horror movies that we will be getting in 2015.Some have even called it a ‘masterpiece‘!

Reviews like that often don’t happen in the mainstream world for this genre..The UK INDEPENDENT’s Geoffrey Macnab reviewed the movie with a positive four out of five star conclusion.. Macnab wrote,
“The ingenious new teen horror film It Follows will intrigue, puzzle and trouble audiences by turns.”  
And this:
“This may be a horror movie but it has some of the same feel as Larry Clark’s cautionary tales about mixed-up, laidback American kids. It is shot as artfully as Cla…

PUFFY CLOUDS BEGIN TO FILL THE AIR AT BELLGAB

For weeks, speculation has been rampant on BELLGAB.COM.. The social site where Art Bell fans go to surmise the latest ordeals, the latest rumors, and the most recent George Noory memes, has also been home to a gush of emotion with each Art Bell message to the squadron of loyal listeners.. They are the base. Sometimes organized. Sometimes apathetic.. sometimes stuck in a mental rut.. and as Bell would say, vaguely lovable.

But today, they may have just cracked the code.

Several days ago, Art Bell made a dramatic announcement on both Bellgab and Facebook that, due to problems being able to play bumper music on his scheduled upcoming July podcast, he may just scrap the whole thing. Intense debate was immediate.. a rush of ideas filled the pages of the site with pleas from some for Bell to just come back, even if music would be absent his podcast. Others mentioned free places, and some wanted to donate their own original songs. But Bell wasn't playing with any new ideas: He clearly want…

'IN SEARCH OF' THE LAND THAT PROSPERS: LEONARD NIMOY EXITS EARTH

RIP

LEONARD NIMOY.

DEAD AT 83..

I credit Leonard Nimoy with most of what I am interested in today.

I was too young to watch IN SEARCH OF when it appeared on television in new form, but I recall becoming addicted to it in the late 1980s and early 1990s when some forgettable cable station ran reruns of it each day. I rushed home from school, typically, trying to catch the show.. Leonard Nimoy was the voice of that program and it was perfect for the content..

Later in life, I came to appreciate the meaning of STAR  TREK--the messages and pop culture commentary was subtle, but as I grew up and starting my own aging process, I loved it even more.. Now, looking back at the program, it's clear that the ideas presented were cutting the cutting edge.. They were beyond the common thought of the day.

Leonard Nimoy, without question, became the face of STAR TREK. Spock was the reason many watched the show--even now when movies are made, the important question always centers around what actor will p…

The Cat's eyes

DC's Catwoman Comes Out as Bisexual »
After 75 years, Selina Kyle is finally coming out of the closet.In the latest issue of the DC Comics’ Catwoman comic book series — No. 39, released this week — Kyle kisses another woman, ending decades of fan rumors and speculation by stating canonically that the character is, in fact, bisexual.
I am not shocked.
As a matter of fact, being a BATMAN fan since my early years of life, I always sensed something a little edgier about Catwoman when compared to the other villains.. Selina Kyle is not the quaint woman of Tim Burton’s imagination in the early 1990s..

And anyway, I always pictured Catwoman as Ertha Kitt, as she was probably the role model for any Catwoman to come.

This comic book coming out has generated a lot of controversy and attention—

This whole thing started when Genevieve Valentine wrote a blog about this. The explanation for this new role of the arch nemesis of BATMAN:
When I was first plotting out what I expected to be a six-issue arc…

NEW SEASONS. NEW WITCHES.

UK GUARDIAN REPORTS: SEASON OF THE WITCH: WHY YOUNG WOMEN ARE FLOCKING TO THE ANCIENT CRAFT »


Rapper Azealia Banks brought witchcraft back into the mainstream by tweeting ‘I’m really a witch’. But women in the US have been harnessing its power for decades as a ‘spiritual but not religious’ way to express feminist ambitions
This fascinating story written by Sady Doyle in the UK GUARDIAN explains how a new burst of ‘witches’ is taking place in the modern world..

The GUARDIAN seems to credit modern pop culture and entertainment with the new witchcraft of our age.. Things like AMERICAN HORROR STORY and the COVEN. Doyle even gives a nod to the TUMBLR site http://charmcore.tumblr.com/.. I have visited it, though it seems more that it’s a site of reblogs as opposed to original content.

But there is another angle, one more political: Feminism and the power of the female, symbolized by the strength of a witch..

Doyle writes,
Wicca, with its focus on a goddess (rather than a male god – though it has …

THE FUTURE OF CHILDBIRTH

IF YOU HAVE SOME SPARE TIME IN THE COMING DAYS, LISTEN TO LAST NIGHT’S CLYDE LEWIS RADIO SHOW..



It was beyond important..

The title was “My Name is Metal” and talked about the very real future that is about to hit humanity like a freight train: Babies becoming less inclined to being born from a womb.. instead, futuristic ways of putting stem cells away for later, so women can choose when she has a child, is coming. Along with that, religious implications, societal upheaval, commonplace gay parents, and future shock..

Clyde Lewis opened his show with shock and awe:
Being in a lab or a building where we can grow children is at least two years away according to a report from Russia Today and the child-growing lab is being used in order to allow two men to have children.
Babies of same-sex couples are becoming a future prospect, as scientists have disclosed revolutionary research on making human egg and sperm cells using the skin of two adults.
It means that we might soon see a fully “dish-manu…

IN LIKE A LION, OUT IN DARKNESS: FEAR IN UK THAT MARCH SOLAR ECLIPSE COULD WREAK HAVOC

SOLAR ECLIPSE TO DISRUPT POWER SUPPLIES – TELEGRAPH »


Eclipse to block out 95 per cent of sunlight in parts of Europe
According to the report appearing in the UK TELEGRAPH today, this nearly 100% eclipse on March 20 may actually cause problems..

The eclipse is going to be the biggest one since 1999.

Victoria Ward writes this,
Power supplies could drop suddenly next month when the UK is plunged into darkness with an eclipse of the sun.
Energy experts warned there could be possible blackouts in the biggest solar eclipse since 1999.
Nearly 90 per cent of the sun’s rays will be blocked out in parts of Europe on March 20.
In London and the South East, 85 per cent of the sun will be obscured by the moon whilst in northern Scotland, more than 95 per cent will be covered.
The National Grid has warned that solar power output in Britain will halve during the event.
My first inclination on this was that the story appearing is just an example of fear porn and attempt to get readers and clicks. But it could…

Dreading the poster of the TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN

This is a movie poster blast from the past.. it was called THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN, and a was loosely based on the 'Phanton Killer' or the 'Texarkana Moonlight Murders' that took place ni 1946..

The other evening, I got the chance to watch the 2014 remake of this 1976 classic.. The redo was interesting. It was like DICK TRACY meets SCREAM, a movie with cartoonish appeal that also featured a 'we know this is a horror movie' attitude like Wes Craven's late 20th century horror series..

However, any time I watch a remake, I typically go back and watch the original. Either for posterity or just because I want to check off the similarities and differences between each incarnation..

The original SUNDOWN film wasn't exceptional by any stretch of imagination.. But it created a new genre--it may be one of the least known movies that started the slasher flicks of the late 70s and all of the 1980s. The TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN was brutal at times and most likel…

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CONSPIRACY IS ON THE OTHER SERVER?

Lots of trolls have been online lately.. when you hear the term, you’re accustomed to thinking of teenage twits in the wasteland of their parents’ dark basement.. 4CHANers posing as people and knocking around the innocent with online bullying and fake news..



But these trolls are scientists. And they are trolling conspiracy websites and forums in an attempt to make the muddy waters even dirtier..

A new study concludes that ‘anti-science’ conspiracy theorists don’t know when they are being fooled by insane conspiracy theories.. According to the research published on PLOS.ORG,  people who already believe in conspiracy are more apt to believing in more of it and finding information to back their claims rather than refute it.. Even more, the study says, people will engage in social media pages more when they realize they found a place that would allow their beliefs–beliefs that are typically opposite of the mainstream of society on any given topic..

Here is how the RAW STORY described the way…

MAY WE INTERRUPT THIS CRIME SHOW FOR A UFO SIGHTING?

Strange news broke early in February and thanks to an article by Lee Speigel in the HUFFINGTON POST and subsequent link by Clyde Lewis, the story is going viral online..



The story first appeared in PERU THIS WEEK on February 11. Reporting by Hillary Ojeda about the footage posted on YOUTUBE and now being shared around the world:
The video footage was uploaded by Eduardo Chávez Guerra to YouTube today and has since been viewed more than 2,600 times.

Reggiardo had just begun filming for his program “Alto al crimen” when his camera man got distracted by something floating in the distant sky. They postponed filming a few moments to take a better look at the floating object.

The YouTube clip’s description reads, “[d]uring the recording of the ‘Stop Crime’ program, in the heart of Miraflores, at 10:30 am, was distinguished in the sky a strange hovering object.”

Onlookers in the video shout their wild suggestions and estimations for the UFO and concluded it could not be a plane for the way it was…

THE VATICAN ON HIGH ALERT

We have been speaking of the ISIS threat to the Vatican and Pope Francis for several weeks now.. The ‘prophecy of the Popes’ and the visions of Nostradamus aside, the real news is very blunt and showcases how dangerous of a time we live in..



USA TODAY reports on the tumultuous turmoil of warnings in Italy and the VATICAN.. a few snippets of text that are worth reading:
The Italian government is on high alert after threats from the Islamic State called Italy “the nation signed with the blood of the cross.” And the country would probably need help to confront the militant group.

“The risks are real,” said Sabrina Magris, president of the International University Schoolof Rome and Florence, the only European institution that prepares negotiators for hostage and terror threats. “The goal may be an actual attack of some kind or simply using threats to create an atmosphere of fear. But the risks shouldn’t be underestimated.”

The Vatican has made no official comment about being a potential targe…

A FAMED INTERNET PERSON COMMITS SUICIDE

Draven Rodriguez didn’t want a yearbook image like all others..so he made himself different, posing with his cat and laser lights. It went on to become one of those ‘things of the internet,’ the little pieces of pop culture that seem to catch on and stick. Although for Rodriguez, this senior portrait of fame has ended very  badly: News reports abounded this weekend that he committed suicide..




According to reports, he was 17 and took his own life on Thursday last week.  The New York teen is now being mourned online, the same place where his image went viral only months ago.

There are also endless theories popping up in comments sections on stories concerning why Rodriguez died.. But this is the nature of suicide and stories like this: we don’t know.. we will never know, and quite frankly, perhaps we should not know.

Whether he intended the world to see his image or just to make high school fame, his creativity and fearlessness should be appreciated and applauded.

But the thing I fear the m…

Bumper music continues to be sticking point in potential Art Bell return

From Bell's own Facebook account tonight, the news is not yet conclusive as far as his return. He writes, in full:
Ok here is a update that I am afraid will not tell you much. We are in talks with a big player and the rub is the music, for me a must have, as is the live show aspect and the time slot 9PM-12AM P.T. for the show.

The only sticking point is the music and we should have that worked out by the end of the Week, or not. All I can tell you is we are going at this as hard as we can. If we pull it off it will have some commercial content but it will be a free live stream and be Worldwide, then I feel I will have kept my promise. Nobody wants me back on the air more then me.

You will all know the moment I do.

Art
The return to the airwaves, or podcasting, has been thrown off the 'midnight express' tracks after the blunt fact of high costs for the use of music reared its head. While some people have offered advice, and even offered their own music for free to Bell for his s…

The strange events in the land of the meteor

This is an image showing four separate scenes from the city of Chelyabinsk.. That was the site of the 2013 meteor explosion that rocked that part of Russia and was equal to several Hiroshima bombs..

RT profiles the city where now, as you can see, strange things are brewing.. 

The image of the three suns was an optical illusion.
But the blue snow wasn’t.. As a matter of fact, the storm giving people the strange colored precipitation made world headlines but no one came by to explain why exactly the weather was as colorful as it was..

There is little we understand about anything.
But three suns and blue snow is probably at the bottom of our human comprehension…

The amazing things that happen when you’re busy making other plans. Four years on..

The John Lennon song still is true.. there are things in life that remind you you’re not in charge. Such an event occurred February 2011 when my wife went into labor after watching a Cosby Show rerun with me around 3am—the witching hour. She had our son, Ayden Morris, near 1pm hours later..
From that moment on my life changed and it continues to do so.

Being a father is amazing. Rewarding.. challenging.. And honestly the best job I’ve ever had. And one I have to do—my wife feels the same way about motherhood. We are called to act each and every day. And even when he goes to bed each night, we still watch from the corner of our eyes to make sure he’s safe and sound.

And today, Ayden is four.

I can’t honestly believe how quick time has passed.

I think it was about two years ago that I wrote on this website that I intended on writing a book about fatherhood. I still want to. I started it.. I suppose it’s never too late. Information about parenting really doesn't change, does it?

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC hits nerves with new cover

The people who believe in evolution are also typically those who don't like GMO food. And those who don't like GMO food are also wealthier and are more apt to refuse vaccinations.  NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC is slamming them with its new cover story--and lumping other conspiracy theorists in with them, including people who don't believe in the moon landing.

The story is titled "Why do many reasonable people doubt science?" It is written by Joel Achenbach. The cover story and subsequent article fired up an intense conversation on REDDIT.

You can read the article for itself and judge accordingly. It names a number of heavy hitting topics, even touches on fluoride in the water,  and reports that there's no dangers and science has yet to find a reason to worry.

The is an applause of science, and a denunking of the myths that often perpetrate long after they are started.. Such as Ebola, and the fear that the disease could go airborne (though there was scientific and histori…

An update from Art Bell and a new trailer for the potential DARK MATTER podcast

Unless insanity prevails and Art Bell changes his mind, DARK MATTER is going to be coming this July. And here, thanks to a fine YOUTUBE user named ḰIḒṔṴJẶ PRODUCTIONS, we have a trailer for the much anticipated return to the airwaves. Via a podcast.

Sometime in July.
From somewhere in a dark room in Pahrump Nevada..

Meanwhile, Art Bell posted a new message on BELLGAB with a bit of an update:
No news yet. The deal is actively being worked on by both sides, I will let you all know the moment we have a deal because until that time THOSE PEOPLE would screw with it. For all I know they have already tried to steal Falkie away for their bumpers.
I love this board, never change.

I love BELLGAB, too. That’s why I am not only a reader but an active member

I don't care if it rains or freezes as like as the Oscars has Plastic Jesus

Welcome to Hollywood.. where apparently even the Oscar statue snorts cocaine..

It is actually a message of art being sent by the artist PLASTIC JESUS..

More from the LA TIMES:

The winter without content

Here is the sight from this weekend’s weather forecast.. anything pink and purple are winter weather somethings. And there are lots of them, storms are a plenty..

The season is almost ready to change. I hear song birds in the morning now and the noon sun—when it is out—is strong.. But until the spring blossoms bloom, it’s going to be considerably cold and snowy. That continues, obviously, this weekend.

I think the second week of March will be a transition..

Let’s see how good I do with that forecast..

Tonight's moon and bright friends

The moon and Mars and Venus are high in the cold sky tonight provoking s remarkable view for the faint of heart..

Take a peek outside of you date to brave the cold air.


POLICE RELEASE 'SLENDERMAN' INTERROGATION TAPES

The crime captured the nature's imagination and gave us two fresh faces of real horror: Young 12-year-old girls who stabbed their best friend in 2014..

We already know that the girls,  Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, wanted to ward off the SLENDERMAN by offering their friend as a sacrifice..

During the tapes, they explain to police how they lured their friend into the woods.. A number of screen caps from the CNN report showcasing the girl being talked to by an interrogator and some of their chilling words:

At one point, after stabbing their friend, the girls also believed they say 'Slender' himself..





Morgan described the way it felt when she was stabbing her friend:





Anissa said that after the stabbing they told their would be sacrifice that they were going to get help, however admitted to the investigator that it was a lie.. Instead they were going to run and 'let her pass away.' At one point Morgan said "I knew we'd get in trouble" about the attempted mur…

The tree of death

Whether you find a deeper meaning in this story or just scratch your head at the strangeness of it, it is making the rounds online today and into the pop culture lexicon. When President Barack Obama was in India three weeks ago, he had a photo op at the at the New Delhi memorial to Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi. He planted a tree..

Now three weeks later, passersby are amazed at just how dead the tree looks--lifeless and droopy, no leaves and sad..

India is ferocious in their argument that the tree is NOT dead, it just looks it..  they are blaming it on the time of the year. But the media in India is seeing it quite different, reporting and bashing the government for carelessly allowing the tree to die and whither away..

Do they need a miracle?
Perhaps Chauncy Gardener from BEING THERE..



Or better yet: The gang of Charlie Brown's friends, those kids who seem to have a good history of working miracles with lifeless trees..



How wayward are the Pines?

TWITTER and all things entertainment exploded a bit today with a surge of news about a director who made his star shine bright at the end of the last century: M Night Shyamalan.. His newest conquest is not over movie theaters or strange SIFI 'documentaries' but instead prime time television..

Shyalaman's bringing WAYWARD PINES to FOX.. and with it comes a strange and elusive trailer for the show.. Matt Dillon stars in the show. And quite obviously the trailer, as well.

It speaks for itself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o51W3_QyXGM

The official description:
Imagine the perfect American town, beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets...Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communication with the outside world. You think you’re going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines.

A worthwhile retort on the CABLE TV cord cutting

Last night, I dropped a link on this site and espoused some of my beliefs that the current generation growing up will drop out of the TV scene much prior to the next one. . the link on the ‘cord cutting’ actually came from TIME magazine.. However, a reader comment on the situation offered a very different and good perspective on the potential other side of the coin.. Since it was buried at the bottom of the site and few may have seen it, I’d like to share it in full, as it offers up a counter argument to the believe that Millennials are ready to abandon their TV sets altogether:
It’s important to put this in perspective. The industry does a really good job of hyping reports and headlines based on a single, biased view. If we were to describe “millenials” as the age group of 18-34 from the inception of cable TV in the early 80s, things really don’t look that different. People don’t make primary choices about TV services until they have their own homes. The median age of first-time home …

CHURCH LETS OUT: Keith Rowland speaks

Normally this website and many others wait patiently for Art Bell to make comments on Facebook or BELLGAB, but this night
the HORROR REPORT can relay information that Keith Rowland, Bell's famed webmaster and curator of THE DARK MATTER RADIO NETWORK, is the one doing the speaking.

Rowland published a post tonight regarding the controversial exit of Jimmy Church from the radio network. Church made appearances as a guest host on Coast to Coast AM--you may remember that after the original hosting Bell had Rowland actually take down ARTBELL.COM until the situation was settled between them personally..

Rowland tonight offered up his explanation as to why Church left and how the entire situation went down.. the statement in full:
It seems the right time to set the record straight regarding Jimmy Church leaving Dark Matter Radio Network.

First of all, while Fade to Black was the most popular show on the network, Jimmy was not a “sit-in” for Art Bell. In fact Art Bell never heard of Jimmy, n…

THE SUPER BUG DOES EXIST

Los Angeles hospital warns 179 patients possibly exposed to 'superbug' »
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A large Los Angeles teaching hospital has told scores of patients they may have been exposed to a drug-resistant bacterial superbug during endoscopy procedures that infected seven patients and contributed to two deaths
It seems high time for a new fear.. Ebola never quite hit home. Measles didn’t much more to shake the nation to the core.. and the Polar Vortex  was replaced with a ‘Siberian Express’ to remind us of how awful weather is and how it’s our enemy. Plus don’t think for a second that news directors aren’t getting a kick out of a slight percentage of Americans believing that Vladimir Putin is somehow creating polar surges into the United States to destroy our Western Civilization..

But all mocking aside, perhaps the new fear of the SUPERBUG is warranted?

The possible exposures occurred at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center between Oct. 3 and Jan…

THE PINK STARS ARE EXPLODING

The 500 pound meteor in the room »
An amazing—and scary—piece of news is being reported very close to the HORROR REPORT home base..
Americans in New York, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania reported seeing a fiery, 500-pound meteor soar through the sky this week before the space rock apparently broke up somewhere over the Keystone State, according to scientists.
NASA said on Tuesday this week that the meteor entered the Earth’s atmosphere in the sky above western Pennsylvania earlier that morning and was reportedly witnessed by spectators stretching for hundreds of miles across the United States from the Mid-Atlantic to the Midwest.

The meteor burst into flames above PITTSBURGH..

Remnants of the meteor ended up on the ground in Pennsylvania—my home state as well. I didn’t see this, however, it seemed more confined to the Western part of the state..

It was traveling at 45,000 miles per hour..

The video and the story are both equally amazing..

There were reports of sonic booms.. Lots of calls to t…

The death of TV

Cord-Cutting: Millennials Abandon Their TV, Cable Faster Than Ever »
This is important and game changing.. A cultural switch is going on. And this backs up my point the other night that Saturday Nighy Live and other live programs are becoming increasingly irrelevant ..

Like AM radio, conventional TV is dead.

There is a revolution in what people want and how they want it.. The talking heads who gave us what they wanted us to digest are almost no more--the power is in the people's hands.. is this why regulation is being discussed? Why the Internet will be branded as a public utility and the government will act accordingly?

Since 1998 the NET was a wild west, tamed a bit by modernization and maturity.. but we are living in unparalleled times.

Anything is possible.
Good.
And bad.
It is our choice .. and cutting out the norm of how we once acted is a good choice.

When in Rome...

Rome is getting very worried about ISIS.

We have reported on the strange prophecies that seem to be driving news lately..

Now the DAILY BEAST is reporting about officials in Rome having no clue how to deal with the threat of ISIS, but being very concerned about their potential advance from Libya to Italy..

Barbie Latza Nadeau reports this in the BEAST article:

Last weekend in Italy, as the threat of ISIS in Libya hit home with a new video addressed to “the nation signed with the blood of the cross” and the warning, “we are south of Rome,” Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi shuttered up the Italian embassy in Tripoli and raised his fist with the threat of impending military action.  Never mind that Italy has only 5,000 troops available that are even close to deployable, according to the defense ministry. Or that the military budget was cut by 40 percent two years ago, which has kept the acquisition of 90 F-35 fighter jets hanging in the balance and left the country combat-challenged to le…

Aliens from the musical stars: Tom Delonge believes in UFOs and says he knows people who 'know'

Recently, John Podesta, an official who had power within the United States government, said his biggest recent regret was not being able to provoke UFO disclosure.

Enter into the discussion, a musical star: A famed star in the paranormal world, Tom DeLonge, is 'positive' that aliens exist.. the BLINK 182 star goes further and says he knows people in a position of power that would be 'in the know' on the alien situation..

The words come from a PAPER magazine interview with Delonge (PAPER made fame in 2014 with the exposure of Kim Kardashian's rear) .. Delonge went deep into UFO and government coverups.. he went on to explain his opinion as to why aliens are even more important than Jesus..

Among the many things that Delonge said during the wide ranging and amazingly interesting interview:

He said he had his phone tapped.
He spoke of trillions of galaxies with the unknown amount of planets within..
He said NASA did NOT fake the moon landing, but there are questions that ne…

I am quitting nighttime sleep meditations. But nothing against meditation.

The march of machines is taking our jobs from under our feet.. robots will accomplish tasks once held by human.
But in all of the futureshock we are being hit with, one thing remains clear: People are still trying to be people. And get in touch with the larger element of our cosmos..

Enter into the equation something that maybe could be the job of the future: An expert on meditation..

Mary Macvean of the LA TIMES writes  that people are seeking a way to slow down.. a moment to take a breather and disconnect from the highly wired world. And in doing so, find the inner peace that is promised with meditation..

The LA TIMES opens this way:
"Bring your attention to this moment," Janice Marturano instructed. "Be open to sensations of warmth or coolness, sensations of fullness from breakfast, or perhaps hunger." Minutes later, the meditation ended with the traditional strikes of little hand cymbals.

Nope. The room was full of hospital executive…

The growth of doom

I got an email last night from someone saying that they come to the HORROR REPORT for horror news, and not world events.. I implore you, find reader, look to your news headlines for the horror. It is there..

The HORROR REPORT has been around since 1999, in some shape or another. At that time, we were on message boards and forums.. AOL rooms and ICQ rooms.. Now we're steady as a website--one that changes its design now and then, much to the chagrin of readers who are thoroughly confused by the constant reshaping of icons and pages.. Throughout all of the history of the HORROR REPORT, we have told readers of the scariest of things both real and fake. Movies, TV, comics, and books. And real events..

The news of the day is always scary. It is always the best of times and the worst of times..

The latest 'worst of times' news is constantly streaming to us from the Middle East, where a death cult describing itself as a religious branch of Islam is wrecking lives and destroying reali…

THE PROPHECY DRIVING WORLD EVENTS

This website and many others have talked about the prophecy of the Popes quite a bit..   Just recently, we also reported on the undertone of rumblings about strange threats to the Vatican and to the Pope himself--along with the news last night that ISIS beheaded 21 Coptic Christians and have publicly said that they want to go to Rome next.

Lots of eyebrows have suddenly been raised to what we have been saying: Prophecy is playing out in real life. However, it may not be due to divine inspiration, but instead because ISIS is paying attention to prophecy and wants to accelerate what it deems as the end times.



CNN's Peter Bergen reports this tonight:

The name of the Dabiq magazine itself helps us understand ISIS' worldview. The Syrian town of Dabiq is where the Prophet Mohammed is supposed to have predicted that the armies of Islam and "Rome" would meet for the final battle that will precede the end of time and the triumph of true Islam.
In the recent issue of Dabiq it stat…

ISIS BEHEADS COPTIC CHRISTIANS IN NEW VIDEO RELEASE

The AFP is reporting,
The Islamic State group in Libya released a video on Sunday purportedly showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians, prompting Egypt's president to threaten a "suitable" punishment for the killings.
More:

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said his country reserved the right to "punish these murderers" as he called a meeting of security chiefs and declared seven days of mourning after the video was distributed by jihadists on social media.
The footage shows 21 handcuffed hostages wearing orange jumpsuits being beheaded by their black-suited captors on a beach the group said was in the Libyan province of Tripoli.

The developing story has taken the internet by storm Sunday night, with images of the video--and the video itself--making runs across social networks..

The Associated Press is adding to the fear over this horrid story.. ASHRAF KHALIL AND MAGGIE MICHAEL are reporting this in recent runs across the news wire:

My really ultra sad and depressing assessment of tonight’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE 40th anniversary nostalgia

I was looking forward to this 3+ hour extravaganza celebrating SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE'S 40 anniversary for weeks.. Tonight when it finally began, I couldn't to turn it off..

Let me explain.
I grew up watching the show.. from an early age, I recall my parents allowing me to stay up late on a Saturday to watch the cold open, usually with Phil Hartman nailing his Ronald Reagan impression. I typically was only able to stay away until the band's first song.. As I got older, the show was a staple of my existence on weekends.. after working late at a restaurant for several years, this program was the go-to before turning in and waking up the next day to do the same grind job again. There are even particular seasons I find the best: The 92-94 years, and then 97-the early 2000s..

The special airing tonight is giving me a different sense of SNL.. In a sense, I think the forced nostalgia is a bad thing. The live recreation of old skits using the same actors--actors clearly who have aged an…

The implied message of this Jehovah Witness video: Not paying attention at meetings will kill children

I don't think I am wrong.. here's a video for you to decide for yourself:

This is a reason all organized religions, regardless of the name, reminds me of Pink Floyd songs..

The threat of death .. if you fall asleep at meeting, your life will not be spared.

Listen up kids. The flood is coming.

THE NEW WORLD ORDER AT MORNING TIME?

Call me a tin-foil-hat wearing paranoid conspiracy believer, but a rather peculiar headline got my attention today from BLOOMBERG, as captured here:



For those who still don't know, the normally safe and completely secure city of Copenhagen has become a fortress..heavily armed police roam the streets. Order is being kept as the constant sound of sirens blare in the air.. This is how BLOOMBERG reporters Christian Wienberg and Frances Schwartzkopff present their information:
The Danish capital, which topped a 2014 Monocle ranking of livable cities, is in a state of shock after attacks that erupted on Saturday are being investigated as a terrorist act. Two people were shot dead and five police officers wounded. Security services gunned down the suspect after he shot at them on Sunday following a manhunt that lasted through the night.
 Danes now need to brace themselves for a new reality, Justice Minister Mette Frederiksen said at a press conference on Sunday. “There’s no room to be naïve…

The Podesta reveal

Imagine: A United States citizen with high profiles and extremely high credentials and clearances in the United States government publicly saying that he wishes he could have brought disclosure on the topic of UFOs.
Imagine..
NOW>>
Stop imagining.. it’s exactly what John Podesta is saying! Some hate him politically, others love him. But stop with the ridiculous two-party division nonsense and just realize what Podesta, a former Clinton staffer, is really saying: Podesta said in a tweet February 13th:


“Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the of the UFO files..” 

There seems to be a drumbeat of news leading to some sort of reveal..
If Podesta's wish comes true, we'll see it soon.

TRANSFORMERS rumors: Some news reports are just all thumbs.

Some new rumors about Megan Fox and Michael Bay–could it be that she’s in the new TRANSFORMERS movie but HE is out!? At this point just rumors. I highly doubt them as well.. for better or worse, Michael Bay IS the TRANSFORMERS movie.

And lots of people are really excited about the idea that Fox will return along with Shia LeBeouf, so as long as he’s not wearing some paper apparatus over his head that day..

These casting and production rumors are getting a little ridiculous.. as noted with a headline like this: “‘Transformers 5′ Cast, Trailer & Plot: Mark Wahlberg & Megan Fox Confirmed For Film [Rumors]

(because I'd go to REALTY TODAY for my entertainment news?)



… ahhhh..entertainment journalism. Where the words ‘confirmed’ and ‘rumors’ can appear in the same sentence..
