Is Matt Drudge listening to Art Bell?

I think so..
While Matt Drudge didn’t link news on the much reach Drudge Report about Art Bell’s return to radio–he did in 2013 with the Sirius deal–a look at headlines being posted on the site makes one wonder if he’s been listening..
Just today.. Asteroids…blue moon…aliens and the Vatcian.. Cancer from cell phones… Exorcisms airing on live TV and being filmed I parks … And humans evolving a new way of walking.
While Drudge focused mainly on politics over the course of career, oddities and strangeness has been intertwined.. 
I have it on good source that Drudge is a Bell fan. Even when he hosted his own Sunday show in the early part of this century, he crack wisely about Bell taking over the night after him.. 
A peek at Drudge headlines makes me conclude that MIDNIGHT IN THR DESERT may be forcing him to think about other worldly things that matter often more than political intrigue.
Such as Donald Trump. 
If you’re listening Drudge, you’re joining a big group of Midnight fans that B…

ROWDY RODDY PIPER GONE TOO SOON: DEAD AT 61

Bagpipes will be greeting him in heaven.. He was a legend of his time and ahead of his time just the same.
Tonight TMZ is exclusively reporting that Roddy Piper died at 61 of cardiac arrest–news I don’t want to believe but information I believe is credible enough to pass along..
This year has seen a number of mighty stars of wrestling pass away, most recently Dusty Rhodes..
But Piper came as a shock–61 is young.. 
And his past medical battles, fights he won, made me think he’d be around a lot longer.
But instead he’s gone too soon..
As so many wrestlers before him..

'SCREAM' GETS SEASON 2 ON MTV

New technology is allowing for facial recognition in darkness..

The future is now: AP asks if the Internet will listen to private conversations.. At this point, I don't know who people are kidding. The internet has listened, including big tech companies and their email systems.. Refrigerators listening.. washing machines listen.. And lest we forget the words General Petraeus years ago in WIRED: We'll spy on you through your dishwasher.

The old joke gets a remake: Is your refrigerator running? No it's too busy listening to you talk to me..

For years, the legendary M Night Shyamalan has lost his luster.. gone were the hits and surprise endings.. And in were the critics who slammed him for lame story lines and hackneyed tales and fables.

WAYWARD PINES was different..
Since the inception of the show, ratings were strong.

THE BIG ONE COMING? Fear and loathing in the Bay Area

A few people who I read believed that the film SAN ANDREAS was just product placement for the real deal--that something big was going to happen in California. Getting the people prepped for natural calamity? That indeed is what some argued..

Early this morning there was a 4.0 quake felt far and wide around the city of San Francisco. It rattled nerves more than buildings or ground.. But even scarier than a little rattle would be a bigger shake.

That bigger shake, a geologist says, will happen any day now.

The fault line in question is the Hayward Fault.. Bay area residents, the geologist said, should be ready for a natural disaster that could change landscape and lives.


CBS in the Bay Area interviewed geologist Tom Brocher.. Among the words from the station that may be heeded:


“We keep a close eye on the Hayward Fault because it does sit in the heart of the Bay Area and when we do get a big earthquake on it, it’s going to have a big impact on the entire Bay Area,” Brocher said.
While a 2008…
