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.
Art
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 piece is intended to draw attention to Hollywood’s hidden problem of drug addiction that affects hundreds of people in the showbiz industry and is largely ignored until the death of a high profile A list celebrity,"Stern said in a statement on Plastic Jesus’ behalf to LAist.

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.
For those who don't know much about this soon-to-be hit series (I predict) it's based on a novel by Blake Crouch and the series, with M Night Shymalan shepherd…

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?

More from the REUTERS report:
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.

Buddhists? Old hippies? New Agers?

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…

Cold as hell

Some of the coldest weather in 21 years ..

It hurts to breathe, stand outside ..

Even my dog decided to cut short his early morning walk with 7 below temperatures greeting him. ..

It's brutal. Just brutal..


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:
The killings raise the p…

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:

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

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..

12 ways the world could end. Brought to us by a reputable publication near you

Some good news for your Sunday morning sidewalk–tongue in cheek on that.. a reliable publication like the FINANCIAL TIMES would never attempt to just scare us with awful things, right?

They have.



They are giving us a list of the 12 ways the world could end.. Asteroids.. supervolcanos.. global monetary collapse.. nuclear war.. pandemic..

Perhaps my favorite though: “Unknown consequences.”



The catch all. Just in case they missed any disaster scenarios, they want to go for the full wide ranging effect on your psyche. Thanks reliable reporters at FT. Never expected it from you..

But the frightening part, more than anything, is how right they are.

Sure we are comforted by our warm blankets each night. While we sleep peacefully in dreamland, there's a hell being unleashed from underneath the planet.. Notice how many volcanoes are becoming lively again? Earth shaking along the East Coast.. Strange looking bombs going off in Ukraine. And the minute hands were moved ever so close to midnight by …

Hadron Hell?

The Large Hadron Super Collider is going to be restarting again–a new particle, we’re told, could be detected this year that would make the Higgs Boson look minor.

For those keeping score, there are tons of websites online depicting a frightening scenario, one that they say even Stephen Hawking is warning us of.. perhaps a new black hole opening? Maybe the universe itself being eaten up..?



The Hadron Collider has already changed the world, to a degree. And despite lots of fanfare and rumors of demise, we haven't faced anything too awful. That we are aware of. Then again, they are adding a second of time to the clock this summer. But that has nothing to do with the Hadron, even though I saw a rumor on some oddball website--even odder than mine--that it does..

Maybe the Langoliers coming ..or wait, that’s a Stephen King book. Not Hawking.

But what we do know is this: The extremely updated Collider is going to search for signals that could become a new model of physics. 

And maybe open a …

Rain keeps falling, down. After 30 years THE BREAKFAST CLUB still matters..

30 years after the BREAKFAST CLUB, it is coming back to some theaters.. It is interesting now to go back and see what TIME magazine, then in 1985, said about the classic movie.

One fun concept is to look at what will never happen again, thanks to modern technology..  It was a movie for its time and of its time, but yet somehow stands the test of time. Yes, outfits are different.. the technology is limited..

But there’s one common thing shared by that of all generations: Our attempt to fit in, find our niche, and create a ‘character’ out of our reality. In the BREAKFAST CLUB, the most amazing part is that all of the characters, by the end of their Saturday detention, actually discover who they really are because they are faced with the clear vacancy of others judging them. I bet, though, by Monday their egos were back and they ‘role’ resumed. But it’s all fiction, right?
