INFLATE DATE: AND THE BIG GAME WILL ROAR

There were always tense moments for me growing up when it came to sports.. I did not have much of an interest in any, as a matter of fact, throughout my grade school life, I attempted to join on the bandwagon and nod my head in agreement with other children’s swift sports ramblings. Sure, I figured, why not agree with the crowd I was in.. no one would ever ask me.. So I pretended to know players’ names. I even delighted in their analysis of games, ferociously saying “yes” and “I know!” when I had my chance to say something else..

The problem was, I always get caught not knowing anything..
The major problem for my often came with the Superbowl.

I never really knew who was ever playing in the game.. I had so little interest, but as a child I couldn’t wait for the ‘IN LIVING COLOR’ halftime show and the FOX brief comedies that would be played while the ‘big game’ showed off the latest pop culture phenom on the field singing..

It was rough.
I recall at one point I decided to just like whatever…

IT'S ON: ART BELL LOOKS TO MAKE FOURTH OF JULY 2015 FIREWORKS

There has been some recent doubt as to whether ART BELL would return, but a message posted to Facebook tonight seems to make it official: Art Bell will face George Noory.. However, Bell will debut his program on the DARK MATTER RADIO NETWORK for free..

Bell wrote,
Hi all here is a update,

Here is the way I see things: Starting in late July Dark Matter makes a return five nights a Week
from 9PM-12AM P.T. on DMRN. The Stream will be at a higher bit rate and FREE to all.

As I mentioned a Producer is needed and it looks like we have found a really good one, Paul will
also be able to assist.

I will be depending on all of YOU as well as my FB followers to spread the word far and wide on
Social Media. A blitz if you will, BUT not yet, it's still too early, but I will give you all the word, we don't
need magazine's and we sure do not need AM radio to spread the word, Social media has far more
power, I have seen what YOU can do.

We will start building the Studio in March or so and as I have …

BLACK MIRROR to get a United States adaptation..

....and with that, the helium was just let out of my balloon..

I am not a big fan of UNITED STATES versions of amazingly great shows.. There is something so fresh and deeply inventive, disturbing, and scary about the BLACK MIRROR shows I have seen..

There actually not been enough of them in my opinion.. and quite frankly each one could be a must see three hour film, in my opinion..

Here is the news, as reported in major trade publications tonight: BLACK MIRROR faces a US adaptation..

Paul Harris writes this in a VARIETY report:
A U.S. rendition of “Black Mirror,” the British sci-fi series that has been a buzzy hit for Netflix, is in the works, the new leaders of Endemol Shine North America said Wednesday at the Real Screen confab.

The keynote session at the Washington Hilton marked the first major public appearance by Cris Abrego and Charlie Corwin since they were tapped co-CEOs and co-chairmen of Endemol Shine North America.

Corwin confirmed that “there is a plan” regarding a U.S. version o…

Cat claws out: George Lucas hits back at movie industry

Some say that George Lucas changed movies forever with his original STAR WARS films.
Others say that his incarnations in the early 2000s were some of the worst pieces of film crap every displayed on screen, besides Natalie Portman of course..

But George Lucas is hitting back, calling out his critics and even slamming people's pop cultural preferences..

Among the many quotables that you can find in the VARIETY article penned by Brent Lang, the HORROR REPORT picks its favorites:
 If you go into ‘Star Wars’ and see what’s going on there, there’s a lot more substance than circus

...

All art is technology. That’s the one thing that separates us from animals.

...

All of us in film school hated the establishment. It was the sixties.

...

Studio executives generally are not the most sophisticated people in the world…you do not want to be oppressed by people who are not as smart as you are and I’m dumb

...
But perhaps the one that will cut the deepest: Lucas scratches his head at pop culture:
I would ne…

SHARP JAB: George Noory anti-Science? Art Bell thinks so

Art Bell, considering making a run at online broadcasting later this summer, launched a missile at his potential rival George Noory on Coast to Coast AM tonight on Facebook, further showing the bad blood that exists between the former and current host of the late night radio program.

Bell said this in a Facebook post,
I just got a Facebook message from a listener who was very concerned that George Noory is having Guest's on urging people not to get their children vaccinated! I am not a listener to Coast but if true it is beyond irresponsible
Bell continued,
I don't want to believe it's true but if so please look at the real science George, this is just plain dangerous.
The recent measles and flu scares have caused a vicious debate to surface in media and pop culture about the safety and importance of vaccines. Noory as host of Coast's newest incarnation has phased into a more government conspiracy program as opposed to paranormal version made famous by Bell. As a result, N…

The darkness that comes with snow is colder than the winds that blow it

A view from my window tonight.. on a cold and snowy winter evening//

Our favorite Martian

If you believe that they put a man on Mars…

We have had squirrels and garbage cans, Obama’s face and more.. but now may be the biggest shocker for people staring closely at Mars rover images..

This picture seems to show a man repairing the probe on the red planet.. At least that is what some are wildly saying online..

Men on Mars?
Or a rover still on earth and faking out the entire population of the globe?

The picture was released by NASA—something strange to do if you would want to hide such an occurrence.

Shadows, Dear Watson, just shadows.
And really.. with the temperature, you really think EGON from GHOSTBUSTERS would survive without a helmet?

Slender is the fright

Before you begin to read this, yes I know: Slenderman was a meme created on a website thanks to a Creepypasta only a few years ago. I was  reminded of that today on Facebook, as well.

With that out of the way, let’s go straight to the news of the bizarre from the an area in the UK.. Cannock, Staffordshire is the location, you may recall, where a number of “black eyed children” were spotted in recent times.. Those paranormal entities supposedly knock on your window and door begging to let them in.. Of course, as the urban legend would have it, you’re damned should you do so..

In the newest news frenzy from the location, “Slenderman” is appearing to people–yes, that fictional character..

For days news, tabloid media outlets in the UK have reported on the Slenderman sightings in Cannock. Paranormal investigators may want to flock to the location again, purported by some to be one of the more haunted areas of the globe. If you believe in that sort of thing..

The UK version of the HUFFINGTON P…

THE GREAT FIZZLE OF 2015

THE GREAT FIZZLE OF 2015!

THE GREAT BUST OF 2015! The blizzard fizzle..

The storm, though large for some, failed to live up to the predictions some said..

The Weather Channel went wall-to-wall on coverage for the storm they called Juno.. other networks had their reporters out ready with yardsticks..but each time they did a live report, the snow was vacant and the streets were covered in a simple slushy mess..

Parts of Long Island had a long duration wind storm, and Boston seemed to be the hardest hit of the big cities when speaking of snow totals.. But 6000+ flights later, you sure wonder if the threat was big or if the hype simply took over ..

After all, forecasters have to pick now from dozens of computer models where as, in those ancient days of the 20th century, they’d get guidance from a model and forecast it themselves.

There was science then. Now there’s computer runs… The runs tell the tale correctly: There was a storm on a certain date. They can pinpoint patterns and systems.. but …

Art Bell address JULY 2015 potential show on BELLGAB

Art Bell has been under the radar of social media since his brief stint on Sirius XM radio ended abruptly. However, he has been active on Facbook over the past year and also has been posting messages on BELLGAB, a message board dedicated to Art Bell fans and talk about Coast to Coast AM. Last night, Bell went to that message board to deliver a statement to his legions of who congregate there on a daily basis. Bell said,
 Hi again,

 It's been a long time since I have posted. First I did not miss any shows for Sirius/XM save for one when the studio in New York went down, none missed for my back or the spider bite.

 Second, I do still have the Flu and have had a bad back since I was in my 20s, sometimes it is ok and at other times I can not walk. Only people with bad backs can possibly understand.

 Third, IF I decide to take a run a streaming it will be free while live as I have always said, this would be in July after my Non-Compete is over. It would also be at my own expense and requir…
