PET CEMETERY REACTIONS: Perri Nemiroff, who reviewed the film for Collider, tweeted after watching the movie:“Pet Semetary is vicious and I LOVED it. Super brutal visuals and was thrilled to see Widmyer & Kölsch fully embrace the deeply unsettling themes of mortality from the book. And WOW Jeté Laurence. They really pushed it with this adaptation & it worked for me – big time.Film critic Rafael Motamayor tweeted: “Pet Semetary is a hoot and a half! Super dark, twisted, gory, and surprisingly funny! More of a dark comedy than the original movie, and it all works once the fucked up third act kicks in. The cast is fantastic. Jeté Laurence is a revelation!”Preston Barta, who reviewed the film for Fresh Fiction, compared the film to another Stephen King adaptation: “Holy hell! Not only does it greatly improve upon the original film, but it manages to reach Kubrick/SHINING level heights! I was terrified, blown away and impressed.”

JOHN B WELLS HITS NOORY ON CENSORSHIP!
COAST TO TOAST AM!

Outspoken radio host John B. Wells became a weekend host sensation during the early 2000teens … Coast to Coast AM hired him on as the official weekend host … However, as Wells began treading controversial waters for the program’s PREMIERE RADIO NETWORK heads, the safer Noory decided to toss Wells to the side..

TODAY as George Noory goes on the Alex Jones radio show, Wells has pointed out hypocrisy..

From the host:


So Noory goes on Infowars with Alex to discuss “censorship” today…

Well I guess he should know all about that after he censored me off C2C in Feb 2014 the moment I started talking about global communism and criticized Obama… What hypocrisy and then he says he’s a dem… go figure

A study asks: Are Atheists Genetically Damaged?

A study asks: Are Atheists Genetically Damaged?: The headline from DISCOVER is misleading.. but the report is interesting..I just came across a paper with an interesting title: The Mutant Says in His Heart, “There Is No God”.The conclusions of this work are even more interesting. According to the authors, Edward Dutton et al., humans evolved to be religious and atheism is caused (in part) by mutational damage to our normal, religious DNA. Atheists, in other words, are genetic degenerates.Despite the talk of mutations, there is no genetics in this paper. No atheist genomes were sequenced and found to be mutated. Rather, Dutton et al. claim (mostly on the basis of a review of previous literature) that atheists have elevated rates of proxy measures of genetic health or ‘mutational load’, namely ill-health, autism, and left-handedness. This, they say, is consistent with atheism being a manifestation of “increasing genetic mutation affecting the mind”.The post goes on to describe that thes…

BLOCKBUSTER makes its last stand in Oregon

Any fan of nostalgia will love this… BLOCKBUSTER is making its final stand in Oregon because .. well….. the manager says they are just stubborn.This is the AP dispatch, for the record, on the issue:BEND, Ore. (AP) — There are challenges that come with running the last Blockbuster Video on the planet.The computer system must be rebooted using floppy disks that only the general manager — a solid member of Gen X — knows how to use. The dot-matrix printer broke, so employees write out membership cards by hand. And the store’s business transactions are backed up on a reel-to-reel tape that can’t be replaced because Radio Shack went out of business.Yet none of that has kept this humble franchise in an Oregon strip mall from thriving as the advent of on-demand movie streaming laid waste all around it. When a Blockbuster in Australia shuts its doors for the last time on March 31, the Bend store will be the only one left on Earth.“It’s pure stubbornness, for one. We didn’t want to give in,” sa…

OF NOT SO EPIC PROPORTIONS: A 24-year-old Staten Island man was arrested Saturday in the shooting death of a reputed Gambino crime family boss, and investigators reportedly believe the murder of Francesco Cali outside his home was a domestic incident and not a mob slaying.Anthony Comello was apprehended in New Jersey Saturday on charges that he shot Cali 10 times outside the alleged mobster’s Staten Island home.Comello was tracked down in part because of his pickup truck that was seen on surveillance footage near the murder.

Comello also reportedly left his fingerprints on a license plate he handed to Cali moments before the shooting; Comello had no criminal history but was in a database after he was fingerprinted for a rifle permit.Police later found the damaged pickup truck outside Comello’s parents’ house. He was arrested without incident early Saturda…

We made it through December .. and we’re fineA huge fireball exploded in the Earth’s atmosphere in December, according to Nasa. The blast was the second largest of its kind in 30 years, and the biggest since the fireball over Chelyabinsk in Russia six years ago. But it went largely unnoticed until now because it blew up over the Bering Sea, off Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula.Military satellites picked up the blast.. NASA and the AIR FORCE were notified..At about noon local time on 18 December, the asteroid barrelled through the atmosphere at a speed of 32km/s, on a steep trajectory of seven degrees.Measuring several metres in size, the space rock exploded 25.6km above the Earth’s surface, with an impact energy of 173 kilotons.
