STRANGER THINGS 2 was unstoppable and amazing

There’s immense magic in the second season of Stranger Things.. magic you have to experience to believe

To put STRANGERS THING 2 (ST2) into a condensed few paragraphs would not be proper.. not be decent. It would just flat out not work..
ST2 continues to take us deep to the heart of a seemingly cursed Illinois town.. to their school, their arcades. Their stores. In the deep and dark 1980s as well. Reagan/Bush signs litter yards—with the exception of one lonely Mondale sign halfway through the season. The imagery, music, and colors are all reminiscent of my time growing up in the 1980s. It was such an homage to the dangerous decade, when we feared the Reds and allowed big government disguised as a smaller version of itself run wild with defense contracts, military spending, and yes secret projects in labs right beneath our noses.
ST2 is very interesting. It is so different from the first season on Netflix, but yet somehow retains its amazing attributes that brought it the initial success. The character development is amazing.. we see the kids age through the season.. we feel like we are growing up with them. Mad Max is an amazing new character, along with her juvenile delinquent brother who seems more hell bent on hurting than saving his sister..
Mike misses Eleven.. Eleven misses Mike. Despite the fact they’re closer than they think.. Eleven grows with her travels. Without releasing spoilers, just know the episode dedicated to only watching Eleven’s life may be worth spinning off a new series all in itself!
What I loved about ST2 is the more things changed the more they stayed the same.. as the children grew into younger adults, there were certain scenes that paid respect to the first season youth and indiscretion.. Whether it was playing SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO NOW or coming up with a colorful new description “Demo-Dog,” it was well-done. We saw ALL of the kids’ families this time, most likely because fans decried the notion that we didn’t mean them in season 1. Barb’s dad was of particular humor. Later in season 2, there is one rather hilarious scene involving Mike’s mom, post bath, answering the door while her inept husband loudly snored on his Lazy-Boy. 
Hopper was a strange villain-ish hero in this season. Exactly the way we like him.
Dustin did not realize how screwed up his actions could make things… Steve Harrington didn’t realize what a swell guy he could be!
I want to keep my emotions in check .. While I don’t want to ruin much for people, just take a good long hard glance at the images that Will draws while he is seemingly possessed by his trauma and Upside Down demons.. The giant spider, which has been visibly seen in the trailers, makes another appearance.. 
That scene makes me hope for a season 3. Although by then perhaps it would be just too much?
When episode 9 ended after the binge fest of STRANGER THINGS, I become emotional. The final scene made emotions swell… Viewers were most likel reminded of their childhood. Their coming of age moments. It just turns out that the gang of friends from STRANGER THINGS have moments that involve government spies, evil monsters from the underworld, and powers beyond our imagination.
There is magic in this show. I believe that. Season 2 continues the magic and spices things up to levels that your mind will be reeling at.
No more to say to you except: WATCH THE SHOW if you did not already. And if you did, watch it again.


Paging Paige: Done at the WWE


PWInsider reports that Paige was told at this past Monday’s RAW that she will not be able to return to the ring. It was noted that she is “done” as a wrestler, and that the situation is similar to Edge’s retirement in 2011 due to a neck injury…

Paige had just returned to WWE in late November after a seventeen month absence due to a neck injury she suffered in June of 2016. During her absence she suffered two Wellness policy suspensions.

Paige was injured during a house show at the Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 27 during a six-woman tag match. She was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and struggled to get back to her feet after the bump.

Weinstein attacked at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort!

TMZ is reporting tonight in fresh runs:

At around 9 PM, Weinstein and his sober coach got up to leave at the same time Steve and his dinner companion were leaving. Steve tells TMZ he had "quite a bit to drink," told his friend to fire up his cell phone and shoot video of what was about to happen.
Steve says he walked up to Weinstein and said, "You're such a piece of s*** for what you did to these women," and then punched him in the face twice. He says Weinstein stumbled backward and almost fell.
A restaurant manager says neither attempted punch connected, and the guy was drunk and out of control.

Both sides agree ... the person who filmed the incident asked Weinstein if he wanted to call the police, but Weinstein declined and everyone left the restaurant.

There is water on Mars. There is not water on Mars. There is water on Mars.

A cross-section of underground ice is exposed at the steep slope that appears bright blue in this enhanced-color view from the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The scene is about 550 yards wide. The scarp drops about 140 yards from the level ground in the upper third of the image.Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UA/USGS

This could be a game changer–and quite the about face since the past several months of news gathered have reinforced the notion that no water at all existed..

As reported in the journal Science (paywall), the water was found in both the north and south of Mars, at latitudes equivalent to South America and Scotland. The exposed areas were found on scarps as steep as 55 degrees. Based on the absence of craters in the regions, scientists believe that the features formed relatively recently.

“The discovery reported today gives us surprising windows where we can see right into these thick underground sheets of ice,” study co-author Shane Byrne of the University of…


The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…



Not only that, but warnings buzzed on TVs.. radios.. the horrid screeching noise when an emergency alert sounds.. 

CNN reports,

Jocelyn Azbell had just woken up in her Maui hotel Saturday when she was hurried into the hotel's basement to take shelter from an incoming ballistic missile.
"You're thinking, 'Oh my gosh, are we going to die? Is it really a missile (headed) our way, or is it just a test?'" the 24-year-old told CNN. "We really didn't know."
Minutes before, she'd received an ominous alert on her phone.

Azbell, her boyfriend and hundreds of other hotel guests were "herded like cows" into the basement by staff. "People are crying and people obviously were super scared," she said.
For 20 minutes, Azbell said, they waited. Finally, they were told that the alert was a false ala…
