Carrie Fisher unloads: Drunken scenes, Lando's dirty talk, and hangovers from hell

The UK TELEGRAPH is among the sources to compile from of the best quotes from a recent 'Date with a Princess' STAR WARS celebration.. Carrie Fisher became, as usual, the honest Leia.. Those in attendance were most likely either shocked or thoroughly happy at the juicy gossip on the display with Fisher and her French Bulldog, Gary, on stage..

As the TELEGRAPH reports, some of Fisher's own words.

She got drunk with the ROLLING STONES before the Cloudy City scene filming..

“And they’re a partying bunch of guys, and though I didn’t drink at the time, to be kind of amenable, or whatever, I drank. I used to say I’m allergic to drinking, and this would have been a demonstration of that. And we stayed up pretty late. Charlie [Watts], that one, he didn’t have a lot of facial expressions. He’s like the Darth Vader of the Stones.


“And we stayed up really late and got to the set about two hours later. And we weren’t hung over, we were still in our cups. And if you watch the movie you can …

The Plumbing of Walmart story in perspective

Walmart suddenly closed stores in a number of states last week.. All for what the corporation called plumbing problems. Every news account however details that no plumbing permits are being sought..workers in Walmart were suddenly without work.

Conspiracy theorists went hog wild.

JADE HELM!!
FEMA CAMPS!!
ASTEROID STRIKE!!!

If you want to hear an alternate, sensible, and true podcast about, I have an idea.

Last night Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis tackled the WALMART closing issue in a refreshing way, Clyde Lewis correctly said that this has nothing to do with FEMA camps or Jade Helm.. instead, if you look at the stores WALMART suddenly closed for the 'plumbing' issues, it was all locations where workers had previously protested low wages. Yes, there is more to the story. But conspiracy theorists have gone overboard. Sometimes the answer is much simpler than a vast conspiracy.
But we also know that the official plumbing story doesn't hold an ounce of water..

I Finally saw BABADOOK. And it made me quite sad

By now you most likely have too. And even more, if you didn't, you read enough to decide if would even appreciate the film.

I won't write a long winded review at this point, simply because I'm late to the game. But I will say that it was a little painful to watch.  The horror element is interesting. We are deflected at first, in a sense, and told to fear the BABADOOK.  The mother continues to try to burn the book containing the BABADOOK's words. The child, in this case a remarkable Australian actor Noah Wiseman who I think carried the film much better than even the main star Essie Davis, is also battling demons. His demons aren't typical, though. He has fears like other children.. he has sadness and grief. And in this film, he has a clearly mentally ill mother.

I am going to perhaps spoil it a bit, but not intentionally. Read on if you want..

I think the BABADOOK is a farce. I don't believe it to be real.. even more, Essie Davis's character Amelia is a former …

Life and death viewed by the angry young man

Cancer is a horrid circumstance.. a outright awful ailment, and a continuous plague that hits without forgiveness or mercy.

I trust that you, the reader, most likely have been faced with a family member of friend succumbing to this affliction.. There are endless tales of horror from children's hospitals and nursing homes. No one can escape this scourge, so often..

I am writing this brief post tonight to get some emotion off my chest.

Recently, my uncle and godfather passed away after too long of a fight with cancer. He fought to stay alive. Fate would have it another way. When he lost his battle, he left behind a family of people who have yet to stop completely grieving his death.

And now, this night, a close friend of mine finds himself in an unsettling place: A hospital bed with tubes and monitors attached to him.. he beat one form of cancer only to find out it spread to another place. Suddenly, he has taken a major turn for the worse..

I hate cancer.
I hate all disease actually.

I'…

FORD IN HIS FLIVVER: THE MODEL T ALIEN NEAR THE SUN?

I found a few interesting links in my night owl reading last night about UFOs .. The UFO SIGHTINGS BLOGSPOT peaked my interest with a post about NASA’s sun observation satellite SOHO (the Solar and Heliosperic Observatory) on April 12, 2015 capturing some sort of a "T" shaped object or thing near the sun.  The story was picked up by BEFORE IT'S NEWS..

Also, a few years back, some speculated that there were photos of a UFO 'powering up' from the sun. With images, they said then, to prove it.

There have been some other recent oddities near the sun. Such as this from January, when a speed of light 'UFO' was captured and shown in a YouTube video..  In March, there was a report that NASA may have been attempting to smudge away evidence of a UFO near the sun.. STREETCAP1 was the source on that.

But this T shape is interesting. Because to some it could be the proof they need of a UFO. To others, it could be a hoax, scam, or simply camera error..

The end of the 20th Century STAR WARS in a trailer for the new one

DARTH VADER's mask and Luke Skywalker's voice appear in new STAR WARS trailer..

As does a symbolic few moments of mentions of STAR WARS of yesteryear..

Harrison Ford and Chewbacca appear, too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngElkyQ6Rhs

The only thought I have: If the best they have is celebrating a movie from the 1970s, this is not a movie this generation needs..

Unless of course this film simply is transitioning to the next realm of star wars entertainment..  One review of the STAR WARS trailer: "Literally sobbing at my computer"

I think they will have a transitional movie.. It will have people say goodbye to the STARS WARS they loved (not the newer ones with JAR JAR but the real ones) and then present a new age of STAR WARS for this generation. But first the old folks need to be completely ok with saying bye to HANS and Luke And Leia..

The question to me is this: Will this be good without Lucas? And I say yes. Because Lucas gave us the not so good modern STAR WARS movies…

THE END OF CASH?

We all knew this was coming.. the moment when that greenback in your wallet could become a relic of yesterday.. when cash, once king, becomes a diminished peasant that provides nothing more but a punchline in a grocery store line.
Cash ..
King..
Move over, the new king is in town.

Dateline BLOOMBERG BUSINESS.. . reporter Lorcan Roche Kelly authored a story getting huge play tonight about a CITI economist wondering aloud if it's time to end cash. To end the green.. to get rid of the paper notes--remember, they are simply 'notes' alleging worth of a certain degree..

Kelly writes this:
In a new piece, Citi's Willem Buiter looks at this problem, which is known as the effective lower bound (ELB) on nominal interest rates.
 Fundamentally, the ELB problem comes down to cash. According to Buiter, the ELB only exists at all due to the existence of cash, which is a bearer instrument that pays zero nominal rates. Why have your money on deposit at a negative rate that reduces your wealth…

The paranormal getting normal: Class of 170 joins up in Rome to fight the Devil

Since Cardinal Bergoglio assumed the title of Pope Francis, a global exorcism frenzy has seemingly resulted. Some even claimed that Pope Francis himself, when greeting people in Rome, performed an exorcism himself...

Francis is being credited (or blamed) with bringing the ancient Rite back to the modern church and making it pop cultural popular..

New reports from Italy have gone further.. 170 people, students of the paranormal in a sense, have joined up to learn all things satanic..  The Vatican Congregation of Clergy organized by the Sacredos Institute are offering a week long class on exorcism and liberation. Demon fighting.. 

Father Pedro Barrajon, the organizer of the program, said that the awareness and popularity of the course is evidence of the evil in the world..

Recently another high profile Vatican exorcist, Fatger Gabriele Amorth, said that ISIS itself is proof of satan and that ISIS is, well, SATAN..

With all of the news articles recently propelling exorcisms to the forefront o…

Movies about what scares you. Or the kids.

Nelson Greaves is getting some positive press about this week's horror release: UNFRIENDED.. the movie is a twist on the safety net of the internet--a net that isn't safe at all, as we know.

UNFRIENDED takes viewers down the road of what scares him about cyberspace. Matt Barone in WIRED explains the genesis of UNFRIENDED. One day, Greaves got an email from a friend. The scary part was that the friend recently committed suicide .. Barone goes on to write in WIRED:
“It was so emotionally troubling for me,” says Greaves. “It’s such a simple thing but it made me stop and say, ‘This is like something out of a scary movie.'”

After that, Greaves started thinking about how the Internet is in many ways a secondhand cemetery, housing millions of social media profiles created by people who have passed off this mortal coil but left their Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr accounts active. That dovetailed with discomfiting memories of being a kid in the early ’90s and seeing his older sister s…

Notable headlines from the world at large

Cunning cowards and chaotic crises. The world at large is as bizarre and frightening as always.. The HORROR REPORT hasn't curated much news as of late with some personal duties that needed tending to, but here's a snapshot of some things that matter and many that probably don't from sea to sea and beyond..

Why not start the news update with perhaps the most dangerous for humanity: An astronomer is claiming that an asteroid the size of the Statue of Liberty is on a collision course with the planet earth.. Dr Judit Gy├Ârgyey-Ries, astronomer at the University of Texas' McDonald Observatory, believes the giant rock could create a huge impact when it reaches earth in around October 2017..



The scary real news doesn't stop with asteroids lurking beyond the planet's ozone.. REUTERS has an exclusive story running about how the NY branch of the FED, worried about 'natural' calamity, is adding staff to its satellite office in Chicago..  I can't help but think  a…

THE 'PLUMBING OF WALMART' CONSPIRACY THEORIES

Six Walmarts closing all at the same time in different cities. For six months.
And 'plumbing issues' were blamed..

Employees given no warnings.. shelves were completely stocked. Just five hours notice was given at a California location..

And as you can imagine, countless conspiracy theories are abounding all across the Internet..
This video summarizes things quite well:




This is a little creepy if I saw so myself..

A few news articles, mostly local, are picking this story up at this point.
One article posted on Tulsa's CHANNEL 8 about how the closing has come as a surprise.. they sum it up this way:

The Walmart on Admiral and Memorial Drive closed for repairs Monday night. Tuesday afternoon, customers were still trying to get in.
The message about the repairs may not have made it to all the customers, but for employees like Dane Humphreys, it was loud and clear.
"There are a lot of things that don't seem right to me," said Humphreys.

No it does not seem right.

MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT SET; ROWLAND AND BELL CONFIRM SUMMER RETURN

Art Bell and Keith Rowland have made it official: There will be July fireworks in 2015 .. the talk show legend is going to go his own way.. A podcasting style as opposed to the terrestrial or even satellite radio he did previously. This time he is greeting the 21st century with open arms, working out private deals to play music, hoping that fans sign up in big numbers to help his return, and beaming himself to every smart phone that wants him.

The show will be called MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT.

Bell posted two messages on Facebook tonight:
Midnight in the Desert is on the way! It is official now, Starting in late July we will begin streaming a full show from Mon-Fri 9PM- 12AM P.T. It will come to you Worldwide on the Internet in 64Kbps Stereo on Tune In which has a free app available for download right now.
Keith and myself have come to a agreement and the main Studio gear has been ordered. There is a great deal of work ahead and all of you who are friends and fans will have to help out when …

Age before beauty

Let me first say, politics is a blood sport and I really have lost interest of the years. It amazes me that we teach our children not to bully each other, and laws are passed stopping them, but yet politicians have free reign to destroy each other and use NSA secrets or back alley Sallys to their advantage. The more dirt the better.. the more chances a politician can be destroyed in front of the media spotlight.. And then the other guy wins.


Though I am politically an atheist at this point, I enjoy watching politics from a distance and see how the actors play their roles.
At times it's clumsy..at times it's infuriating.
And the media? Oh that media..

Hillary Clinton has announced that she will announce she is running for president. That happens tomorrow, Sunday. The strange part, in my political analyst mind, is that she is choosing to use the internet to feed a video to supporters saying she is going to run for President. No rally or big speech. Instead, a quiet video uploaded to…

Art Bell and Keith Rowland plan to go it alone, will broadcast independently this summer

Art Bell, back in his time, had a different take. He did politics for some time. But changing the format equaled a success that has been unparalleled by any in comparison.
Art Bell is coming back to radio. But will people back to him?


There are lots of people happy about--including me, to be honest. I have been a proud card carrying member of the BELLGAB.COM forum for several years, joining in a strange arena of general disgust with George Noory and the state of modern radio..
And speaking of modern radio..
It's a cesspool of politics. Constant banter about material items that have useless end results for those who debate them. Issues that really don't matter. Gay wedding cakes, for one.. And many other things to divide a nation that is already divided into small divisions of divisions that don't have a chance of ever getting along with each other..

I think it's fair to say that Coast to Coast AM, the 1990s and early 2000s version, inspired a nation to accept the paranormal…

Water wars coming. The next crime wave is predicted

I recall a documentary I saw back in the late 1990s, it was some sort of bad TV special--bad in acting and producing--that predicted what the next fifty or so years of life may be like. Some talked about Nostrodamus, others just predicted based off of scientific research. One particular thing stuck in my mind: The possibility of 'waters wars,' with shortages and droughts people would be forced to fight and become adversaries just for a drop of liquid.
I kept that fearful tale in the back of my mind for years.
Today, I read this headline and the fear came racing back.
Dateline, KQED Science section, an article written by Sasha Khokha:

THE NEXT CRIME WAVE IN FARM COUNTRY: STEALING WATER.

The story comes from the drought scourged California landscape, where water is no where and there's hardly a drop to drink, or use for farming. Underground aqueducts are quickly becoming clay. It's getting tense, with Governor Brown announcing tough restrictions on the use of water.
Meanwhile,…
