Up all night – The Russian Sleep Experiment

The following depicted events have been acutely documented by the remaining members of the original study (Researchers) who fled the grasp of the NKVD (KGB) in the 1940-1950s. This one has been going the rounds on the Internet for a while now, with little variation. Back in the 40s, a group of Russian scientists conducted…

The world will end in Armadillo spit!

The number of Floridians contracting leprosy has doubled in the first half of 2015, mostly because of contact with spitting armadillos. Not really. That’s just hyperbole to get your attention and, hopefully, get you to read this article. If you’re still here, it must be working. Armadillo saliva DOES pose a health risk, though. Armadillos…

If THE STRAIN’s vamps look familiar, there’s a reason.

In recent years we got so hung up on sexy vampires who ached to assimilate into society that we forgot how to make them undesirable and frightening. I’m really digging on THE STRAIN, even though I’m only a little ways into it. I’ve both started at the beginning, watching the first season on DVD from…

Vampire CARS? Why not? It’s Grindhouse!

Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller:  “This highly stylized roller coaster ride is a throwback to 1970s grindhouse cinema. With its fast-paced thrills and indie feel, Blood Drive will make an exciting and edgy addition to Syfy’s growing slate of original scripted series.” We don’t really know where the term “grindhouse” comes from. Either…

The Lady Wore Black

Over the weekend, I saw the film The Woman in Black.I don’t bend to reviews—I like to make up my own mind. I admit, it scared me. Then again, I probably found it more terrifying because I have a little bit of a personal history with The Woman in Black. Thanks to the excellent movie…

Put down that embalming fluid! I’m not dead!

Prosecutors in Germany have charged a doctor with negligent bodily harm for declaring a 92-year-old woman dead – only for her to wake up in a refrigerated room at a funeral home. If this sort of thing can happen in the present day, with all our modern technology and doctors educated to the nth degree,…

The Birth of a new Myth

Which is why it’s not surprising that suicide inside these reservations has been an alarming problem for several decades, especially among the younger generations. By “alarming” I mean that for Native American youths, the suicide rate is more than twice the national average for other ethnic groups. Note the use of the capital “M” here,…

The Passing of a Trailblazer

Lela Swift, a pioneering female director who started in television’s live era and spent three decades helming the cult soap opera classic Dark Shadows, has died. She was 96. Lela Swift passed away this week, at the ripe old age of 96. I’ll be honest; I actually thought, or perhaps assumed is the better word,…
