The return of exorcism

The return of exorcism : It’s en vogue … Demons abound…

But is it really really rising?

Michael Cuneo, sociologist and author of newly published “American Exorcism,” asserts “Exorcism is more readily available today in the United States than perhaps ever before.”

He goes on to say: “By conservative estimates, there are at least five or six hundred evangelical exorcism ministries in operation (in the US) today, and quite possibly two or three times this many.”

Mental illness …. Or the devil. Pick your poison.

Strange baby faces popping up around Denver

Strange baby faces popping up around Denver :

Fox 31 in DENVER reporting this:
– Call it guerrilla art with a baby face.

For months, small baby doll faces have been creeping up across Denver and creeping out many people who see them.

From South Broadway to Cherry Creek and many places in between, the hard, 3-D faces have been posted on curbs, medians and buildings. Many of them have been photographed, yet many often go overlooked.

“I’ve seen one over at Capitol Hill and another at Speer and Downing at the bridge,” Elaine Wahlquist said. “I’ve commented to my husband, ‘Look at those.’ But he never seems to notice them.”

Most of the faces are pink and less than 6 inches long, but there are other sizes and colors. Some have also been torn down or broken in recent months.

Several pink faces were plastered below a sign for Strictly Nails Salon at Downing Street and Alameda Avenue, but owner Pam Schwasinger had overlooked them until they were pointed out.

“I don’t know. I think they’re … they’re a …

NOW ACTORS BEING WARNED ABOUT VICTOR SALVA

Victor Salva's sordid history is coming back to haunt him like the character in one of his films..

During the last century, Salva was involved with a sexual relation with an underage member of the film CLOWNHOUSE.. Salva was convicted of sexual misconduct with a 12-year-old boy, who was one of the stars of his movie Clownhouse. He also videotaped one of the encounters.

The 15 months in prison did not stop his 2001 JEEPERS CREEPERS from becoming an unexpected hit--the movie has long been celebrated for creativity and ingenuity..

Fast forward to 2016.. just as Bill Cosby's history from the 80s came back to mar his career, Salva is undergoing the same look..

The Union of BC Performers (UBCP) has issued a warning to actors in the province about the casting for Jeepers Creepers III.  The director of the film, Victor Salva, was convicted of sexual misconduct in 1988 and the union says performers should remember they have the right to refuse work if they believe the work is unsafe.

The sky falls in Pennsylvania! Is the West Shore's mystery ice chunk a meteor?

The sky falls in Pennsylvania! Is the West Shore's mystery ice chunk a meteor? : It fell onto a car a few days ago..

Now a doctor is set to study the origins and source..

“I’ll check the salinity of it and do a chemical analysis of it,” Dr. Kreiger said.

Dr. Kreiger plans to drill through it. On the inside and outside, he’ll do an isotopic analysis and check the ice’s acidity, density and how much salt is in it.

The chunk’s density and white color are signs it could be a meteor. But police told Kreiger the chunk of ice has a flat surface.

“Flat edges. I say was it on a roof? No, it was on an airplane probably,” Dr. Kreiger said.

Planet Nine (or 10. Or X): Scientists find more evidence that hidden planet is sitting at the edge of our solar system : Claims were made a few months back of a giant object at the edge of our solar system..

Mike Brown, who made those original claims, says that he has tracked another object in that Kuiper Belt that is also moving unusually. And its strange movement is exactly how what would be expected if Planet Nine is real, he claimed.

Something just hit Jupiter

Two amateur astronomers in different parts of the world captured what looks like an asteroid or comet impacting Jupiter on March 17.

The independent videos — captured by John Mckeon and Gerrit Kernbauer on March 17 — show something slamming into Jupiter on its right side. The Jovian impact — which was first reported by Phil Plait at Slate and confirmed by Mashable — looks like a small flash just above Jupiter's distinctive clouds before disappearing.

Trump social networking

Saw a very impressive DONALD TRUMP meme today on social media..

Trump as the Jack Nicholson version of the JOKER created by a genius only..

As things go, viral, no real credit is paid to jokes that seem to be a higher caliber.. this image is a prize.

We may have only paid attention to it for virtually little to no time online today. But enjoy it.. soak it up.. Print it out.

Police make arrest in UFO theft

This is a REAL UFO story..

Teenagers in Roswell New Mexico, the famed town of UFO lure, have been arrested for theft of a UFO..

KRQE reports that the flying saucer was stolen from the INTERNATIONAL UFO MUSEUM in the town last week.

There are two other suspects being sought..

Fodder for your late local news tonight. I am sure you'll see the video..

Beaming up, from somewhere out there: Stupid teenagers smuggling a replica flying saucer.

House hunting? Or hunting those inside?

You may recall this house from a few months back: A beautiful abode. With a stalker..

The Westfield New Jersey house made some news.

Now it's back in headlines again because it's for sale, back on the market (the market did not accept it before) ..

Here is the catch: Someone is watching.

As NBC NEWS reports,

Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, one stalker.
A Westfield, New Jersey, home supposedly afflicted with a "watcher" who sends menacing notes is back on the market — this time at a reduced price.

The homeowners, Derek and Maria Broaddus, say the "watcher" sent his first note to them and their three kids just three days after they closed on the $1.35 million home in 2014.

The Broadduses tried unsuccessfully to sell the home last year after they claim they received a disturbing letter that read in part: "My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time."
And more:
The listing says the house, located about 25 mi…

‘Jeepers Creepers III’ Casting Notice Removed After Victor Salva’s Past Revealed!

‘Jeepers Creepers III’ Casting Notice Removed After Victor Salva’s Past Revealed!:

The casting notice sought an 18-year-old actress for the role of Addison, who at the age of 13 had been sent to live with her grandmother after her stepfather “started making overtures” to her. Salva could not be reached for comment to the DEADLINE article..

Salva was embroiled in a criminal controversy in the 1980s for copulating with the 12-year-old star of CLOWNHOUSE..

His fame came again in 2001 with a horror gem called JEEPERS CREEPERS..

The new age of social media brought forth knowledge of Salva’s past sins–items that have long been discussed on the HORROR REPORT over the past 15 years since the original JEEPERS..

Some even thought JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 was displayed homoerotic of the scenes with the cast, in the film an underage group of bare chested high school boys..

The newest information showcases how one man’s past never quite leaves someone..

Ask Bill Cosby.

And now Victor Salva.



But is a fair game?..…

MEATY RISE: CONSUMPTION OF BEEF SET TO INCREASE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 10 YEARS

After nearly a decade of cutting back on steaks, burgers, and pot roast, the USDA estimates that Americans’ red meat consumption will rise for the first time since 2006..

The trend away from cow corpse seemingly has ended..

Tove Danovich writes this:
Even outside the world of fast food, restaurants are seeing their food costs fall: Beef or steak dishes can cost a restaurant up to half of the menu price for ingredients versus a pasta dish, which may have a food cost of only 18 percent, Forbes reported. Even a decline of one dollar per pound makes a big difference to a restaurant’s tight margins.

But for many farmers, that Americans are eating red meat again doesn’t matter as much as what kind of meat they’re eating. As hog farmers are fond of saying, if a pig were made of pork chops, they’d all be rich—the same goes for cows and ribeyes. When beef prices went up, retailers focused on ground beef—mostly in the form of hamburgers—to keep customers coming in, financial services group Rabobank

Isis has ‘advanced plans to attack Jewish children’ in Turkey, intelligence sources reporting

Isis has ‘advanced plans to attack Jewish children’ in Turkey, intelligence sources reporting : Isis has advanced plans to carry out a terror attack heavily targeting Jewish children in Turkey, according to intelligence officials.

Sky News reports that six operatives from the terror group, arrested in the Turkish city of Gaziantep last week, revealed information about an “imminent” attack.

Istanbul’s synagogue in Beyoglu is understood to be the most probable target of the allegedly impending attacks, which has a community centre and school attached to it.


Hey, any time that higher power wants to weigh in, we are waiting…

Suffer the children all of the time… This word is so often pitiful for so many..

Megan Fox weighed 107lbs during filming for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel

Megan Fox weighed 107lbs during filming for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel : The big reveal came at a fan convention… Fox made light of her ‘beefy’ co stats bragging up their weight stats while her less than 5'4" and thumbs nearly stayed below 100 pounds..

The secret?! She said stop eating dairy.

Actually she has a point.. Cheese, milk, butter.. All of it. Stop eating and consuming cow chunks. Your body will be healthier and happier because of it..

If you doubt that advice give yourself about five minutes to have a looksee into it and find some credible information showcasing how America’s disastrous love affair with cheese has soared as much as heart problems and disease..
Links and looks.
Just look.

NINJA TURTLES set to rock the summer box. Included in the mix, lightweight Fox and her two thumbs.


Australia's dark heart inspires horror movie boom

Australia's dark heart inspires horror movie boom : The BBC reporting,

“Australia broadcasts this laid-back easiness but it is really a very conservative country,” says the British-born director. “Art takes off in those periods when you’re being stifled and oppressed. There is a sort of darkness that lurks [here] somewhere.”
In Sims-Dennett’s eyes Sydney is fast becoming a nanny state, suffocated by draconian lockout laws and surveillance, and he touches on these issues in Observance.
Premiering next month in Australia, industry bible The Hollywood Reporter has already dubbed the film a “chilling experience” that grips “viewers by the throat”.


I have heard amazing things about OBSERVANCE..

Last year’s amazing things were said about BABADOOK..

Before that, WOLF CREEK.
Before that.. FORTRESS–a 1985 movie about a teacher and children fighting for their lives as a maniacs in Santa and Easter bunny masks chase them..

Before all of that, CROCODILE DUNDEE. I kid.

Volcano in Alaska sends ash spewing 37,000 feet up!!

Volcano in Alaska sends ash spewing 37,000 feet up!!: Alaska’s Pavlof Volcano, which erupted unexpectedly over the weekend, continued to rumble and fling ash into the sky Monday, the Alaska Volcano Observatory said.

The ash plume is now 37,000 feet high and trails some 400 miles to the northeast over the Alaskan interior. Aviation alerts were up in the region.

Boy shot in back by stray bullet after pleading in video for end to Chicago violence

Boy shot in back by stray bullet after pleading in video for end to Chicago violence : Last year, 12-year-old Zarriel Trotter spoke out against the violence roiling his Chicago neighborhood.

“I don’t want to live around my community where I’ve got to keep on hearing and hearing: People keep on getting shot, people keep on getting killed,” Trotter said in a public service announcement about the effect of gun violence on the city’s black youth.

The video won an award, but gun violence in Chicago only got worse.

And on Friday, in a tragic and ironic twist, Trotter became one of its latest victims.


You can deny God or pray to him. At a time like this for the suffering children across the planet–suffering because of adults kind you–I think we should all ask for a divine intervention.. Meanwhile, on your late local news, madness abounds .. It’s not supposed to be this way..

Chill out?!

Biebs not only posted his nude rear near a lake but –take a breath–‘liked’ one of Selena Gomez’s photos on Instagram!! Ok now screen like a teen!

This is getting old, old media. Even the tabloids in Amurica have gotten stale..

As for Instagram, I’ll take Chelsea Handler’s nipples any day. At least their cutting edge. Especially in the cold.

Red alert: why is scarlet fever spreading across Britain?

Red alert: why is scarlet fever spreading across Britain? : There are a tremendous amount of cases this year in the UK..

Reporting from the GUARDIAN:
Could the spread of scarlet fever be down to us forgetting about this infection and failing to diagnose it quickly enough to stop to spreading? Lamagni thinks this is unlikely, because most parents wouldn’t ignore its distinctive sandpapery, red rash, which usually first appears on the chest and stomach, alongside a fever and a swollen tongue.

The current outbreak remains a mystery, but it has left me convinced of one thing: that my children will catch it just in time for the Easter holidays.

FBI says it has cracked terrorist's iPhone without Apple's help

FBI says it has cracked terrorist's iPhone without Apple's help: The Department of Justice says the FBI has accessed the iPhone used by one of the gunmen in the San Bernardino terrorist shooting.

Law enforcement officials were able to break into the phone used by Syed Farook with the help of an unnamed third party. Government officials did not go into detail about what was found on the phone.

Should the FBI be applauded? Or lauded? Or feared…

Nuclear accident at Three Mile Island - March 28, 1979

Nuclear accident at Three Mile Island - March 28, 1979: At 4 a.m. on March 28, 1979, the worst accident in the history of the U.S. nuclear power industry begins when a pressure valve in the Unit-2 reactor at Three Mile Island fails to close. Cooling water, contaminated with radiation, drained from the open valve into adjoining buildings, and the core began to dangerously overheat.

And it just so happens I’m looking at the cooling towers in the horizon as I type this now..
A beautiful sight for some. A constant reminder of danger for others.
Money to be made and energy to be created. Hell or high water, nuclear phantoms lurk.

ISIS carries out Good Friday crucifixion of Catholic priest Tom Uzhunnalil in Yemen

ISIS carries out Good Friday crucifixion of Catholic priest Tom Uzhunnalil in Yemen : This is horrendous news… The world on fire with hate and violence.. The priest kidnapped by ISIS-linked terrorists in Yemen earlier this month was crucified on Good Friday, it has been claimed.

Father Thomas Uzhunnalil, 56, was taken by Islamist gunmen, reportedly linked to ISIS, who attacked an old people’s home in Aden, southern Yemen, killing at least 15 people, on March 4.

The terrorists reportedly carried out the heinous murder on Good Friday, after threatening to do so earlier in the week, according to the Archbishop of Vienna..

Can’t we see the blue skies and sunshine? Can’t we hear the birds sing? Can’t the caring God we pray too help stop hate?
The miracles are on hold.
It’s desolate on this beautiful planet lately..

HAPPY EASTER

HAPPY EASTER 2016
A happy Easter to those who celebrate.. A solstice party for the others.. Thank you for reading, following, and your friendship over the years.
The HORROR REPORT is  17 this MAY.


Hard to believe the time has gone on.. hard to believe the old GEOCITIES page that this website originally was on. Then it got a ‘DASH’ .. minused that out in 2009 live since without it..

No reason for nostalgic melancholy. As I AGE I realize that gets one no where but down in a dump.. the HORROR REPORT will move forward. The past does not exist anymore. Neither does the future. The only thing that’s real — or as real as we can conjure– is the present time. The moment now. The impressive and unbelievable chance that we all have to breath and live.. This world is a beautiful place for dreamers and dancers– so dance the night away and leave the dreams until the day. Because we are in this together.

Bombs and hate are filling the air. I know you can feel it. I can.  That is why together as people we…

Bird lands on Sanders' podium during Portland rally

Bird lands on Sanders' podium during Portland rally : I watched this a few times today.. The bird landing came before his victories in tonight’s caucuses …

If it’s a sparrow it’s a good sign. If it’s a finch it’s even better..

And when things like this happen–these seemingly strange coincidences surrounding seemingly mundane events–it reminds me of how the bigger picture exists.. How there seems to be a dramatically bigger affair that takes place around us..

How maybe… No coincidences really do exist and a higher order is in power.

Or…. It was just a bird. Just a moment. Just a strange event that will be forgotten by tomorrow.

THE FINCH THAT STOLE BERNIE

Earlier today I reported that Bernie Sanders had a symbolic event: A sparrow landed on his podium.

Perhaps that is wrong. It looks like, instead, it was a finch..



From a contributor on BEFORE IT'S NEWS:
When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of prosperous and joyous times ahead. Finches are an omen of high energy and bright days on the horizon. Natives held the finch as a symbol of upcoming celebration. Finches are song birds, and their music heralds the bounty of spring. When the finch sings to our awareness it is a beckoning to unleash our own song. If we’ve been concealing our brilliance from the world – the finch is a sign to start making our value more audible and available to others. Its bird meaning deals with sociability too, and if the finch comes into your life it may be a signal to get more involved with social activities.
The birds feel the Bern..

LIGHTS OUT TRAILER

Keep your lights on!


Now doesn't that look impressive?

David F. Sandberg directed from a screenplay by Eric A. Heisserer’s (The Thing, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Final Destination 5), which was based on Sandberg’s 2013 short film..

That short film, as well, was highly praised on this website and referenced often.. When we learned that LIGHTS OUT was going to be a feature film from JAMES WAN of Conjuring fame, we nearly jumped out of our chairs..

And yes, there is criticism already.. Some are claiming they are tired of the 'jump scare' routine.. others, who praise the short film for the highly ingenious story and ability to create fear and panic all in four minutes don't completely get sold on this trailer..

TIME WILL TELL..

WAN IS IN CONTROL.

SCARES WILL HAPPEN.

The symbolism of Bernie’s Bird

The strange election.. on the GOP side, a sludgefest over the size of Trump’s genitals and how many women CRUZ (ugh) may have slept with..On the Democratic side? Birds perhaps doves in disguise are now landing on Bernie Sanders..Since Bernie brought it up, there may indeed by symbolism concerning this bird.. Maybe not a dove in disguise, but something else. There is something in symbolism and animals called totem animals.. a sparrow, which this looks like, could be a symbol of self worth.. This from a site professing some knowledge about totem animals>:The sparrow is one of the most common birds around,
yet it has flourished when other species have failed.
It reflects self-worth.
If a Sparrow totem has entered your life, ask yourself if you know your own self-worth.
The sparrow will show you that even a common little bird can triumph.
The song sparrow reflects the chakra energy awakening from the heart and throat.
It reminds us to sing out our own song of dignity and self-worth.
Duri…

NO STOPPING IT NOW: BATMAN VS SUPERMAN BOX OFFICE DOLLARS

The verdicts are coming in.. those of the people I now who saw BATMAN VS SUPERMAN are highly upset.. one person’s reaction was shock when she learned that the film cost almost a billion bucks *($800 mil to be exact)* to create.. a monstrosity of a borefest..BUT BUT BUT.. stop the presses, here’s the latest bat news: Easter weekend take moneywise for the flick is going to be wide and big. $171 predicted for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, despite the bad reviews. Despite the bad reactions. Despite Ben Affleck. The $171 mil will be minus Affleck’s children, as well..The movie’s release is pre-summer. The spring Cherry Blossoms are not even done blooming. The genius of Warner Bros was to release a film like this – comic book, bombs, fights, explosions, Wonder Woman in a skimpy outfit – when kids were home from school. During a three day weekend when teens had nothing to do but go to the movies.. The marketing was also amazing with product placement everywhere, including in the cereal aisle for my fi…

'The 100' Showrunner Apologizes for Character Death

'The 100' Showrunner Apologizes for Character Death: The LGBT community went mad when a main character–a gay character at that–on the show was killed off in dramatic fashion. The part that was perhaps most unbelievable was how 

Jason Rothenberg and others billed the show as a must watch on social media, persuading people to halt their plans and tune into the program for a special episode. When they did, they saw 

Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey), the lesbian commander of the Grounders and the love interest of main character Clarke (Eliza Taylor), was killed by a stray bullet meant for Clarke..He broke his silence on a MEDIUM story..And the fan reaction–even on the Medium article–continue to be harsh..The WRAP reports,

Rothenberg retreated into silence on social media in the days and weeks following the episode, while a large sector of the show’s LGBT fanbase channeled their anger and social media power into collecting more than $45,000 — and counting — for the anti-discrimination Trevo…

Researchers Find Fish That Walks the Way Land Vertebrates Do!

Researchers Find Fish That Walks the Way Land Vertebrates Do!: The missing link has been found?!
A remarkable story..
But now a team of researchers has found a remarkable parallel to one of evolution’s signature events. In a cave in Thailand, they’ve discovered that a blind fish walks the way land vertebrates do.

The waterfall-climbing cave fish, Cryptotora thamicola, has even evolved many of the skeletal features that our ancestors did for walking, including a full-blown pelvis.

“It’s really weird,” said John R. Hutchinson, a biologist at the Royal Veterinary College at the University of London who was not involved in the new study. “It’s a good example of how much fish diversity there’s left to be discovered.”

Brussels attacks bombers DID plan to attack nuclear power station | Daily Mail Online

Brussels attacks bombers DID plan to attack nuclear power station | Daily Mail Online: Terrorists were preparing an attack on a nuclear power plant and had recorded 12 hours of reconnaissance footage, it has been reported.

The ISIS cell were spying on Belgium’s nuclear power chief, possibly as part of a kidnap plan to force him to let them into an atomic facility, according to newspaper Derniere Heure.

Hours of film of the home of the Research and Development Director of the Belgian Nuclear Programme were discovered in an apartment in Brussels raided by anti-terrorist police following the attack in Paris.

U.S. hospitals are getting hit by hackers

U.S. hospitals are getting hit by hackers: Last week, yet another American hospital was tossed into chaos after its computers were infected by hackers.
This time it was Methodist Hospital, an averaged-sized medical facility located in western Kentucky.
Methodist Hospital was operating “in an internal state of emergency” on Friday, according to its website. A section of its computer network had been rendered useless.

While the hospital claimed no patient records were compromised, they didn’t reveal how much in ransomware they paid after the hacking.. One source says 4 bitcoins, translating to roughly over $1000 in today’s dollars..

Ransomware hackers keep things lower priced to ensure a better chance that the ransom will be paid..

‘Batman v Superman’ Review Round-Up: Hero Clash Draws Mixed Reactions

‘Batman v Superman’ Review Round-Up: Hero Clash Draws Mixed Reactions : The review bloodbath continues for this accident of a film..

My favorite highlights:



Ryan of Uproxx said the movie’s inability to provide entertaining escapism on a grim day in world news was particularly disappointing. “I am gobsmacked by just how dull this movie turned out to be,” he wrote.

Matt Singer of Screencrush said, “In Snyder’s formulation, protecting the world from evil isn’t a gift or a calling; it’s a burden. And that feeling is reflected in the movie itself, a burdensome 150-minute slog about two men fighting over who is in the right when both are very clearly in the wrong.”

The DAWN of bad reviews: The BATMAN VS SUPERMAN embargo lifted..

….more reviews rolling in for the two titans fightin’..Things aren’t looking good for the caped crusader or man of steel…As said before, Ben Affleck says he won’t take his kids to see it. Maybe adults need to follow the lead and avoid it as well..Some notables:
The SYDNEY HERALD in from the international world.. says the movie is unheroic and disappointing.. Comic Book Resources says that Wonder Woman cannot save the dull film..Variety weighs in..EW..Some glimmers of hope for ticket sales..

‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Movie Review from ScreenCrush

‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Movie Review from ScreenCrush: The embargo has been lifted.And things aren’t pretty..This from the SCREENCRUSH review:

There’s probably a really interesting movie about the ideological divide between Batman and Superman, but on the basis of Dawn of Justice, I’m not sure Zack Snyder was the man to make it. The questions he asks are too straightforward and the resolution he arrives at after all that talk and too few setpieces is way too simple. Instead of playing up the differences between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, Batman v Superman flattens them. For all his high-horsing about Superman’s transgressions, Batman mows down loads of people in his Batmobile and Batwing (both equipped with enormous machine guns) and he beats up bad guys with alarming ferocity (he paralyzes at least one guy for life, if the poor dude survives at all). At times, Affleck’s Bruce Wayne seems less worried about Clark Kent’s powers than jealous of them. This Batman…

A beautiful moon..

...and secrets the night air keeps... 

Perhaps the best description of BATMAN ever.. just BATMAN punching SUPERMAN in the face for three hours..

blameaspartame:

can’t wait


Perhaps the best description of BATMAN ever.. just BATMAN punching SUPERMAN in the face for three hours..Ben Affleck said he would not take his son to see the movie – perhaps we all need to take the advice.I have not liked the idea of this movie from the beginning.. as we get closer to the release, it seems more and more likely that I will not be viewing the film.. My apologies to those who do.Maybe instead I’ll read FRANK MILLER’s version in comics.. My leather bound book awaits ..

Soft target terror

The images from Belgium are harrowing.. The nation feared terror for since and especially since Paris.. The arrest of the Paris attack mastermind didn't help alleviate anything. And now today's 8am morning rush hour double bombings of a subway system and airport in Brussels is being viewed by some as a response to the Friday arrest.. 
Clear at this point: Belgium and other European cities and nations are on lockdown.. People are being warned to avoid public gatherings.. The train connecting nation shut down..

THE CASE OF THE SMILEY FACE KILLERS REVISITED

I have been into this story ever since a few years back when Ian Punnett hosted a show about the potential ‘Smiley face killer’ nationwide on Coast to Coast AM.. Now this new book just released looks promising. I may consider a purchase..

The true mysterious unexplained story of the Drowning Young Men. Hundreds of young men; vanishing without a trace, only for many of them to be found dead; weeks or months later, in remote rivers or creeks, shallow ponds or canals, in areas that search parties have searched multiple times before; their bodies later discovered there, as though placed to be found.
Also if you’re as fascinated and equally creeped out by the entire thing, give the Smiley Face Facebook page a looksee.. https://www.facebook.com/SmileyFaceKillers/?fref=ts

And just when you want to dismiss the entire idea–or at least dismiss the possibility of some weird connection between all of the vanished youthful men of the…

Mystery of Pulsing Pink Beam in Pedricktown, NJ. Linda...

Mystery of Pulsing Pink Beam in Pedricktown, NJ.

Linda Moulton Howe reporting on the EARTHFILES page about this:

A Pedricktown resident sent the following email with his image of a mysterious, pulsing pink beam that lasted for at least ten minutes before the strange beam kept contracting on itself half a dozen times getting smaller and smaller until it disappeared.


The light is bizarre to say the least.. in the description Linda received, the tipster wrote,At 6:45 am, the beam disappeared. The way it disappeared was it contracted to about 2/3 of the size that was visible towards its center, disappeared,reappeared at its original size and repeated the contraction and disappearance-reappearance about five or six times.This was not a spotlight, as the brightest spot was in the middle of the beam. Spotlights would be brighter at the power source. It wasn’t a laser pointer as known laser pointers are handheld and couldn’t produce a beam that strong.There may be a very normal (?) explanation f…

The 100 Season 3, Episode 9 is titled “Stealing Fire” and there are new spoilers and theories circulating the Internet prior to its airing. With Pike’s order to  While I have never been a fan of the show, this entire ordeal of the death of a character and the outrage of a fan base, particularly the LGBT community, may be a case in point on how not to use social media to prop up television programs.. All of the fans ordered to watch .. they did.. and then they abandoned the show in droves after a main character succumbed to a catastrophic ending.

SEPH LAWLESS showdown with DISNEY! PHOTOGRAPHER BANNED!

The famed photographer who captured moments in time--dilapidated malls and properties showcasing the death of the once great American infrastructure--has hit a nerve with Disney.


Last night Lawless posted this:
So Disney is upset at me, but why do they get so upset anytime someone gets too close to the abandoned Discovery Island..

What are you hiding Disney?

Today the message was amplified with this posted Facebook message:
Officially banned from Disney World for life, which is ironic because I already banned Disney from my life after they raised tickets prices...

I couldn't think of a better way to make a story go viral and bring attention to a growing public health catastrophe that killed an 11 year old child.

What are you really hiding Disney?

No corporation should be powerful enough to hide the truth and not clean up their mess.

Chinese military space station in remote Argentina shrouded in mystery

Chinese military space station in remote Argentina shrouded in mystery:

Unlike the other space station in the South American country – an antenna in Argentina’s central-west Mendoza province built by the European Space Agency – the Chinese facility will be operated by the country’s military.


There is undoubtedly a secret space program .. nations around the world joining in.. shrouded in secrecy..What secrets don’t we know?
What satellites circle?
What enormous hidden universal magic do the powers that be have and hold? From FOX: The intended use of the giant antennae at the station is supposed to monitor the moon – as China has ambitions of sending people to the earth’s only satellite – but some speculate that it could serve a dual purpose of watching celestial bodies and also intercepting signals from other nation’s satellites.Despite the speculation,China has not given out much information to the public about the remote facility and its operations.

OLD MADGE EXPOSES UNDERAGE GIRL'S BREAST

Madonna exposes 17 YEAR OLD fan's breast onstage »
MORE..  Madonna invited a 17-year-old fan onstage during her concert Thursday night in Brisbane, Australia, and then pulled down the teen’s corset top to briefly reveal her left breast…

There is a silver lining: The 17 YEAR OLD underage girl called it the best moment of her life. ET ONLINE reports on the moment it occurred:
The Material Girl ended up in a bit of hot water when she – seemingly accidentally – exposed a 17-year-old fan’s breast during her Rebel Heart Tour in Brisbane, Australia on Thursday.

“She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap…on the a**. And pull–” Madge said as she yanked the teen’s corset down and flashed her boob. “Oh, sh*t! I’m sorry. Sexual harassment. You can do the same to me.”
I am hesitant linking to the video.. there are some YOUTUBE accounts permitting the underage nudity.. even some showing it in SLO MO.

The conventional wisdom: MADGE should cancel her tour immediately.. go back home.. eat some apples…

THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE

WHAT IF ALL OF THE MUSIC STOPPED?

With my son being sick this week, there was one thing that seemed to most give him hope during the bleakest times: The top 40. Seriously.. for a child at 5, I am amazed with how adept he is with music and how quickly he learns to hear the words and learn them.. I credit my wife. While I can play piano by ear, her ears were in tune much more for life with the music.

That’s why the poignancy of this photo strikes me.. the ‘sound of silence’ cartoon.. you may have seen it before. It passes around a number of times when people of musical astuteness passes away..

But picture a world with no music. One where the notes fall from the pages of life and end tragically in a pile of nostalgic rubble? How depressing it would be.

It’s so simple to assume music will always be there to help and haunt us.. but the day music decides it’s done with humanity will be the saddest day of all.

I have a sense music won’t give up on us until we give up on it. Hope that never happen…

COMET TIME: SKYFALL

One comet to swerve closer to Earth than any other comet in centuries: An emerald-green comet will brush the Earth Monday, followed one day later by a kissing cousin that will swerve closer to the planet than any other comet in nearly 250 years. »
THIS IS ONE ‘FOR THE RECORD BOOKS,’ experts say..
An emerald-green comet will brush the Earth Monday, followed one day later by a kissing cousin that will swerve closer to the planet than any other comet in nearly 250 years.

The first and bigger of the two comets will be visible Monday to the naked eye in the southern hemisphere, as long as city lights are far away. Stargazers in the United States will probably need only binoculars to see the bigger comet in late March. Scientists, however, are bringing out the big guns. The Hubble Space Telescope, the powerful ground-based Gemini telescopes and others will be trained on the celestial visitors, which will provide an extraordinary close-up of objects usually glimpsed only at a distance.

INTERNET OVERLOAD

I just watched THE THREAD, a pretty good documentary on how the internet completely helped or ruined the Boston bombing investigation, depending on your point of view.. You should really give it a watch..



It forced me into a strange place.. contemplation over what this whole NET thing is doing to the world. To us. To news.. to everything.

I turned 21 a week before 9/11 happened. When that terror attack took place, I went online and immediately began updating –in HTML mind you–my website about the terror attack.. There is still a record of it somewhere on Archive.org. So in that regard, I was immersed in the NET world at 21 before REDDIT and Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. Back then it was AOL Chat rooms and Drudge, along with very basic chats..

But now? Twitter? REDDIT.. The REAL error of citizen journalism is here. And it’s fast, sloppy, messy, and amazing.

But to what end?



The funny thing is after watching THE THREAD, I feel out of the loop. Even though I was a NET kid, it was new then.. i…

HOGAN WINS!

The retired wrestler Hulk Hogan was awarded $115 million in damages Friday by a Florida jury in an invasion of privacy case against Gawker.com over its publication of a sex tape.
The wrestler, known in court by his legal name, Terry G. Bollea, sobbed as the verdict was announced in late afternoon, according to people in the courtroom. The jury had considered the case for about six hours.

Nick Denton, the founder of Gawker and a defendant in the case, was found personally liable, as was Albert J. Daulerio, the site’s former editor in chief.

THE TWISTED TALE OF RICHARD SIMMONS

No other words to describe this article appearing in the NEW YORK DAILY News besides 'high strangeness' ..  Friends say that Richard Simmons, the exercising maven of the 20th century, has vanished into himself.. into his mind.. into his home. Madness has taken over. He has cut off contact with close associates and some haven't seen or talked to him in two years. They are also blaming his long time housekeeper.. from the DAILY NEWS long diatribe:
Oliveira presents the most solid evidence of Simmons’ mental and emotional state, because his access to the mansion was more recent than others’. But even he has been left with a dearth of concrete, up-to-date information, leaving friends to concoct theories, some more outlandish than others.

“I think tormented is the best word to describe his mental state,” Oliveira says. “I think it was (caused by) black magic, witchcraft. That’s not close to your culture, but to my culture in Brazil, and to Mexicans” — Teresa Reveles is from Mexic…

He said that “devil worship” stemmed from the so-called cult of Santa Muerte, depicted as a human corpse with all the flesh picked off the bones, and dressed like a bride for her wedding.The name means “Holy Death” – and it harks back to the days when to be sacrificed to the Aztec gods was considered the greatest honor

A WOMAN IS SUING OVER AN EXPLODING TOILET.And to top it.. she had to clean it up herself.From CBS in Baltimore:A Baltimore woman says she was injured both physically and emotionally from an exploding toilet.“She was blown off that toilet that day,” says attorney Louis Glick.The woman is now filing a lawsuit more than a year after the day it happened. Angela Wright says she still suffers psychologically and her home hasn’t been repaired.“I was literally covered in feces. Are you kidding me who wants that?” Wright said.Wright spoke with FOX45 about the ordeal in November 2014, right after it happened.But could you imagine..?

Things that really scare parents.. not movies.. not monsters.. but fevers. And this week we had our share

MY NIGHTMARE. 

It began a week ago. I got sick—selfishness took over and I requested leave time from my fatherly duties. My wife luckily allowed me to get a full day of sleep. Then the next day when my son, Ayden, went to school and her to work, I stayed home. And slept again.. Whatever this bug was took the life out of me..

My son was the next in the house to get it. Over the past 72 hours, we have gone through a series of traumas related to it.

Sickness is normal, and common. Fevers happen. But Ayden’s fever spiked several times to 105. At one point he was going up. We made the typical frantic night time calls to nurses on duty. We did the Motrin/Tylenol routine—which worked actually when we needed it to. We avoided the cold water however, as the body temperature dives quickly the fever spikes higher and just as bad immediately after the submerged body leaves the cold water.


It was the OTHER events that caused serious concerns. And a trip to the ER as a precaution.

The child robot would be able to respond to questions, display emotions and recognize people. Aside from being a social companion, the child robot could supervise unattended children and inform a parent or nanny if something went wrong, Thalmann said.

There are plans to program the child robot to speak different languages so that it can serve as an educational tool for children, she said.

“A child has toys but they are usually passive. This robot will be an active toy which interacts with the child,” said Thalmann. “It will be able to remember what the child likes.”

A woman starved to death after being trapped in an elevator for a month

A woman starved to death after being trapped in an elevator for a month: Nothing more horrific than this from the weekend news bits..

A 43-year-old Chinese woman was found dead by an apartment building’s maintenance workers after she was trapped in an elevator for a month.

The incident took place in the northern city of Xi'an in China. According to local authorities, the woman was trapped after maintenance workers from Shaanxi Kaiwen Mechanical and Electrical Equipment Company shut off the power supply to service the malfunctioning elevator on Jan. 30.

However, the workers left for the extended Chinese New Year break and only returned to the gruesome find of the woman’s corpse on Mar. 1. Reports also said that the lift walls were covered in desperate scratch marks made by the woman.


The woman wasn’t even searched for in a month.. According to what is known she had a mental illness and didn’t associate with people, and lived alone…

Why do I think we will see a horror movie about this …
