IT director Andy Muschietti says IT2 will finish filming in 2018

Here’s what he had to say in a recent interview with Variety. “We are doing [two films],” said Muschietti. “We’ll probably have a script for the second part in January. Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids.” Muschietti also commented on what fan’s expectations are for the new film, and what they want to see. “Most of the people are excited about seeing a good adaptation. There are naysayers. Those tend to be the people who are fans of the miniseries rather than the fans of the book. People who read the book and got the book, they’re not crazy about the miniseries. It was a very watered-down version. It didn’t contain the darkness that the book had. They couldn’t make something for TV about a clown who eats children,” Muschietti added.

Rethinking the T REX

Researchers at the University of Manchester created a detailed anatomical computer model of the 7-ton dinosaur to calculate the load on its skeleton at various speeds and gaits. They found that its skeleton was perfectly capable of moving in a run – defined as having both feet off the ground at the same time – but if it had ever actually done so, its bones would have shattered. The study is published in the open-access journal PeerJ.

Fireside chats and foreign accent syndrome


Last night while gathered with a few friends over wine, we traveled the universe of strange topics. I brought up my amazement when I hear of people suddenly speaking fluent languages they never knew before after being in comas or hitting their head.. And no one believed me! It is true I argued! These medical mysteries do happen.. 

So I second guessed myself. 

Maybe I just am a victim of ‘fake news.’ So I went to some reports. And yes.. comforting to my ears, this language issue is real. It is called foreign accent syndrome. 

This report appeared in TIME magazine in 2014: 


A Georgia teenager who suffered a life-threatening head injury last month while playing soccer awoke from a coma speaking fluent Spanish for the first time in his life. Rueben Nsemoh, 16, shocked family members and doctors when he opened his eyes after a three-day coma and began uttering sentences in Spanish, despite having known only a few words before his accident. “It started flowing out,” the teen told TIME on Monday.


“I felt like it was like second nature for me. I wasn’t speaking my English right, and every time I tried to speak it I would have a seizure.” “It was weird,” Rueben added. “It was not scary at all. I actually liked it a lot. It was really unique to me.”
And more on the syndrome: The University of Texas at Dallas has a website dedicated to providing support to people who succumb to rare speech disorders.. A report from CNN about this also included this: Three years ago, police found a Navy vet unconscious in a Southern California motel. When he woke up, he had no memory of his previous life, and spoke only Swedish. In Australia, a former bus driver got in a serious car crash that left her with a broken back and jaw. 

When she woke up, she was left with something completely unexpected: a French accent. And earlier this year, a Texas woman who had surgery on her jaw, has sported a British accent ever since. Next time I gather with the group of friends, 

I’ll have some detailed examples to prove myself right.

CHECK YOURSELF BEFORE YOU WRECK YOURSELF



Pittsburgh Daily Post, Pennsylvania, August 4, 1912

And all these years I thought this saying started on Uncle Grandpa.. Glad to see we’ve been saying it since before two world wars. Sadly over the past century very few people have checked themselves before they wreck themselves..

NEW IT IMAGE REVEALED



With IT being released September 8 (two months) another image of ‘Pennywise’ has been released.. A press release with the photo: The kids in peril, the Losers’ Club, include Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor. Javier Botet will play The Leper, and Nicholas Hamilton plays Henry Bowers. The cast also includes Owen Teague, who plays bully Patrick Hocksetter. Bill Skarsgard is our new Pennywise.

DNA IN PICTURES


Scientists have uploaded a short movie of a galloping horse into the DNA of living bacteria and were able to retrieve it with a 90% success rate “DNA has a lot of properties that are good for archival storage,” Shipman said. “It’s much more stable than silicon memory if you wanted to hold something for thousands of years.” In the new study, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, Shipman wanted to see if bacterial DNA could be used to record the order in which new information was added to its genome.

HISTORY




Despite people’s belief system not allowing this information to become fact in their brains, it is true: The Jim Jones cult did not die drinking Kool-Aid. It was Flavor Aid.

From a past story detailing the events: The surprising thing is that all the sources on the massacre say the powder was the grape variety of another drink brand, Flavor Aid. Made by Jel-Sert, Flavor Aid appeared in one of the first newspaper reports on the massacre.

The claim is repeated in the 1982 book Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People. And surviving witnesses said that Flavor Aid was the drink used, not Kool-Aid.

With the evidence so clear, why did the phrase “drinking the Kool-Aid” emerge? Mental Floss suggests Kool-Aid’s role as being a genericized name for all flavored drinks, the popularity of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, and other factors made it easier to remember “Kool-Aid” than “Flavor Aid.” Why it’s worth correcting the Kool-Aid mistake Many of the strongest arguments to abandon the phrase come from San Diego State University’s Jonestown Institute, including: Phyllis Gardner says the meme is part of the continuing dehumanization of victims at Jonestown. Mike Carter makes the obvious point that it trivializes the deaths to use the phrase at all. Al Tomkins at Poynter says that we shouldn’t continue to tarnish Kool-Aid’s name incorrectly.

MEME WAR I



Here is how things unfolded.. This past slow news weekend, President Donald Trump initiated first blast when he posted a MEME of him from 2007 clothes lining Vince McMahan.. but the head of the WWE owner was replaced with CNN’s logo. The media was shocked! Scrutiny began! Such hate! Vitriol..

And some Americans most likely would have been on CNN’s side with this one. After all, we have grown a bit weary of a Tweeting President.

And then CNN went and did this…

They found the REDDIT user who created the meme…using various data mining tricks and social media INFO..

The user, not named at this point: HansSoloAsshole. Love the name.

Basically what CNN decided to do was blackmail the person–some are claiming the REDDIT user is a 15-year-old. CNN virtually had the user promise to to make any more MEMES.. and if he did (they will be watching they told him) they would release his name to the world!! But if he didn’t? His secret is their secret.

Within hours of CNN broadcasting a ‘victory’ story on live TV where they bragged about how they found the Internet user who created 5 second comedy videos, the public backlash began. From the right. And the left. This one seems to be a great unifier actually..

For about 12 hours now the term 'CNNBLACKMAIL’ has been trending on Twitter..

CNN thought they scooped a big one. Instead they just scooped poop dropped by HansSoloAsshole.

People are seriously questioning why CNN would have even wanted to track down a MEME creator to begin with–unless some thought it may have been those comedic Russian MEME creators behind it..?

Nonetheless… we are at a crossroads in time. MEME WAR I

Saturday morning arrived and the Donald was slammed for his Tweet..
By Fourth of July CNN targets the potentially teenage MEME creator.

And the internet? The internet took notice.

If CNN wanted to rid the NET of memes with their logo? They made the wrong move. The MEME war seemingly has just begun…

SYFY looking to a Tremors reboot

..not sure if you’re into stale old ideas coming back after being dusted off from the top shelf. If you are! Here’s your chance to see TREMORS again ..and it will star the same star it starred then..? According to Variety, the SYFY network has picked up a pilot which could potentially spin into a series set 25 years after the 1990 flick left off. The set up sounds a little similar Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead spin off: Valentine must return to the small town of Perfection to defend it against the killer Graboid worms, but will have to “overcome age, alcphol and a delusional hero complex”. “This is the only character I’ve played that I’ve ever thought about revisiting,” Bacon told Variety. “I just got to thinking, where would this guy end up after 25 years? Andrew Miller has a fantastic take on it and we hope to create a show that will be fun and scary for fans of the movie and folks that have yet to discover it. Let’s kick some Graboid ass!” What a press-releaseish kind of statement.

Tosh.0 takes on Seven Supergirls

If you have a child under the age of 7, you undoubtedly have seen the Engineering Family open blind bags or eggs with toys covered in Play Doh. Maybe you have become repelled by ‘Ethan’ the gamer.. or even had a little too much of the FGTEEV family.

Perhaps if your child is into gaming, Zack Scott or DanTDM have become household names…

…and the there is the Seven Supergirls channel..

Very recently, TOSH.0 did a somewhat comical expose on the channel, becoming disgusted on the air by one video of a child licking whipped cream, and in a skit mocking the 'To Catch a Predator’ series.. I implore you to watch the TOSH video and if you have any decency, after checking out the YouTube Channel, you will be a little put off by what you see.. Tosh points out that many popular videos on YouTube, including famous Beatles songs, get a couple million views.SuperGirls? ….Billions. 12 billion overall views to be exact, with tens of millions of subscribers.. Each day, one of the 'seven supergirls’ sub channels has to make a video.

It could involve dancing, being DUCT-TAPED to a bed (yep) .. gymnastics.. Being in bikinis near the pool. And all of the videos have girls–the channel almost brags about this–under the age of 18. The NEW YORK times did an article about girls on YouTube in general this year, touching briefly on the Seven Supergirls channel.. I thought it would be interesting to show you what was written: Many popular videos made by girls in the pre- and early teenage years live on nine connected YouTube channels. Seven Super Girls, the most successful of these channels, has over six million subscribers and its videos have been viewed a combined 6.9 billion times.

Each channel — others are called Seven Cool Tweens, Seven Awesome Kids and Seven Twinkling Tweens — is run with more efficiency than some professional media sites: Each girl is responsible for making a video on a specific day of the week. (Annie was on Seven Awesome Kids from 2010 to 2011.) They follow a set of guidelines that include weekly themes, and precludes them from giving their surnames and location.

The SAKs channels, as they are known, were started in 2008 by seven families in Britain who, in the early days of YouTube, wanted to make sure their children were making family-appropriate content. The only remaining parent of that original partnership is Ian Rylett, who is currently in charge of the SAKs operation.

Mr. Rylett, who lives in Leeds, said producing the channels was essentially his full-time job. He and a team of six others take care of copyright issues, create sponsorship deals, come up with weekly themes, monitor the channels and arrange meet and greets. The tickets for a 1,000-seat event that is coming up in Orlando, Fla., are selling for $30 each. Mr. Rylett receives an income from the channels, as do some of the girls. The girls own their own content, he said, but they have not signed contracts. Whether Tosh actually exposed a purposely pedo network or not us unclear.. but he brought attention to something that many parents should be aware of.

If they are not already.. As for the instant fame so often people seek out? ….it’s not worth it. The parents who crave it? They are bad parents.. The Seven Supergirls channel is really, really creepy. Quite frankly I don’t know if that was the intention. But …judging from the top videos and the types of strange titles and weird instances the girls find themselves in, one would have to almost conclude that the channel knows very well the audience it is attracting… As TOSH said, the 12 billion people who watch these videos should 'put their pants on’ and turn themselves into the FBI immediately.

RAIN coming to Netflix

Netflix has announced the start of production on Miso Film’s “The Rain,” the streaming giant’s first Danish original series which is both penned and co-created by Jannik Tai Mosholt (“Borgen”). Set six years after a devastating biological catastrophe wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two siblings join a group of young survivors and set out to find out whether a new world has begun somewhere else. Set free from the rules of civilized society, each of the young members of the group has the freedom to be who they want to be, but they all struggle with their own selves. Mikkel Boe Følsggard, Alba August, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen and Lars Simonsen lead the cast. Mosholt will serve as showrunner alongside Christian Potalivo (“The New Tenants”). Jonas Allen and Peter Bose will also executive produce the series which will be shot in Denmark and Sweden and will premiere in 2018.

In their video on the issue, Anonymous go on to cite several other alien-friendly comments made by astronauts and space exploration enthusiasts in the past, as well as various alien and UFO ‘sightings’ as evidence that “something is going on in the skies above”.

FROM EMAIL: Hi, I have a possible example of the Mandela effect.

You see, I vividly remember this movie about a dog who gets lost while on a family road trip, and encounters a restaurant that makes hot dogs out of actual dogs. I could go on and on about the details of the movie, but everyone I ask in person says it doesn't exist, and I've searched far and wide on the internet and have found nothing. I swear this movie existed, and I watched it in the early 2000's, but it was an older movie. Drives me nuts.

Thank you for this .. And yes..when you described this I actually seem to recall something similar.
It will drive you nuts. Mandela Effects are like that. They come.. they go.. they destroy the fabric of your mind.
Thanks for reading. Stick around. I believe we will continue to drive you nuts. And you will drive yourself nuts when you think of this movie about the dog road trip..

But that won’t be the end of it. The 755-foot-diameter projectile is set to return every year until 2022, during which time who knows what could happen..

Expert warns: An asteroid is DEFINITELY going to hit earth..

Just in case plans are scary but necessary

This morning while skimming VICE I found a snippet of information worth repeating:

According to unpublished FEMA documents obtained by Government Attic, a FOIA database and non-profit organization, the Department of Homeland Security agency once mapped out a disaster plan for the occurrence of another geomagnetic “superstorm,” noting that the rare—yet “high-consequence"—scenario has "the potential for catastrophic impact on our nation and FEMA’s ability to respond.”

Lots of sites and pages on social media are playing this up! Confirmation that the end times are here!

….I look at it a bit differently.

First off if such an event occurred we would be barely ready. Some agencies and people with islands including solar panels could be well off, but society as a whole would undoubtedly disintegrate rapidly. That is where the contingency plans may need to be focused.. The aftermath. The weeks–months, years?–without power in some locales. And the idea that our life, powered by electricity, would be essentially shifted into the abyss of cavemen lifestyles immediately.
Dapper dans donning suits and ties at work? That goes away quickly. That facade you’re comfortably acting out only works with heat, air conditioning, and lights.

I am glad the government is planning things out. A solar flare of epic proportions happened before. It will happen again. All things, when able to happen, will happen. Disasters. Good days. Bad days. Asteroids. Water supply problems. Droughts. Floods.
And yes, solar storms.

The government needs to be better prepared. While they are at it they should also being hunting down killer asteroids that potentially can end life.
And we can all hope that an asteroid doesn’t coincide with the solar storm.
…that…that..would be hell on earth.

Sudden strange shifts in reality

Ever have one?
That kind of reality shift that really causes your head to spin.. almost get dizzy..

While I often talk about the Mandela Effect this time I am not. Instead I am exploring those real moments–on this timeline–where you see something for what it is.. So evident in front of you that your brain has no ability to process what you are living through.. no ability to conjure up a meaning to the reality you’re existent in, but instead your whole being is just pointed in an immediate right direction. Or at least a direction you never expected to travel to..

Let me explain without going into personal gory details.

The other night I was involved with a small gathering of friends. One friend turned fiend when he decided to blatantly opine about my life. Advice is on thing. Chalk it up. But criticism and almost condemnation in quite another. It took me a bit to even process what was occurring while it was happening. Things got fuzzy.. suddenly nothing seemed balanced, nothing seemed real.

At the same moment–almost exact–my son was injured while playing. He hit his head and we ended up a few hours later in the ER .. a slight concussion was diagnosed and life went on. He is fine now, of course we are vigilant for further signs of problematic symptoms.. In the mean time he is eating, smiling, and the kookiness of his initial brain bump has subsided.

But I did a deep amount of soul searching on this… very deep.

A few days prior, while watching one of those self help videos on YouTube from Ralph Smart (Infinite Waters diving deep once again) I came across an older video where he explained that nothing is coincidental. Nothing should just be ignored. Instead, it flows together like a beautiful mighty river of life. Like Billy Joel’s the River of Dreams..

Nothing is coincidence. Nothing just happens for no reason.

So my parental opening and Ayden’s head bump seemingly occurring at the same time cannot be ignored. Instead, both incidents were horrible. My head was spinning from outright condemnation. His head was spinning from injury.. Simultaneously occurring as the hands of time spun into infinity.. Something seemingly shifted immediately.

Like the scene in THE SHINING when the ghost bartender tells Jack Torrance how to deal with Danny. Something shifted..

I am prone to conspiracy analysis.. Not necessarily theory. But the study of the theory is so often what fascinates me!

…but I don’t think coincidence meaning something else deeper is conspiracy theory. Instead I believe it to be a long-running stream of consciousness …

Yes indeed. A reality shift occurred.
Real faces were shown.
Real people. Real things. As real as Judge Judy herself.

Perhaps it’s all this diving deep I so often do. Maybe, finally, my pineal gland is opening wide and I am seeing the REAL world for what it is. And it sure ain’t pretty…….

The world at war

BEIRUT (AP) — Russia on Monday threatened aircraft from the U.S.-led coalition in Syrian-controlled airspace and suspended a hotline intended to avoid collisions in retaliation for the U.S. military shooting down a Syrian warplane.

The U.S. said it had downed the Syrian jet a day earlier after it dropped bombs near the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces conducting operations against the Islamic State group, adding that was something it would not tolerate.

Otto Warmbier dies days after release from North Korean detention

A DEVELOPING STORY..

Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student who was detained in North Korea for nearly a year and a half, died Monday afternoon, his parents announced.

Warmbier had been medically evacuated and returned to Cincinnati last week in a coma.

“Unfortunately, the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today,” his parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, said in a written statement.
