American Got Talent: LIVE SHOWS!!

The Live show of America’s Got Talent, and the contestants were ready. The judges are ready. Are you ready to vote?

Darci and Oscar

Darci Lynne, the ventriloquist, and Mel B Golden Buzzer winner. She returns to the live shows, and she was absolutely adorable, and her performance was spot on. Did she grow a couple of inches? Oscar, the socially awkward mouse, sang “Who’s Loving You,” I could not even see her lips move. I am glad she had extra training singing with your mouth close. She was fantastic! Vote, vote, vote if you want Darci to go to the finals.

Howie’s Golden Buzzer recipient, Christian Guardino, 16. The soulful singer from Patchogue, NY bellowed “Make It Rain” by Ed Sheeran.  He was good and a great singer.

Artyon and Paige, the adorable besties, performed an ode to Footloose, with an energetic dance number. It was fantastic to watch these two dancers.  Lots of energy.

Then the patriotic singers of In the Stair Well did an a cappella song called “Some Nights” by Fun. They were good, and they showed off the vocal ranges. They were fantastic. I hope they stay.  Did you vote? Vote for them.

Singing Trump

The Singing Trump is back for another performance on America’s Got Talent, and he performed a medley of two songs during the quarter-finals! The Trump impersonator sang “Shut Up, and Dance” by Walk the Moon and “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer for his performance. Then he tore his pants off and revealed the American flag pants. He later joked that his pants were designed by First Daughter Ivanka Trump. He then mentioned that American could make AGT great again and bring our country together. The singing trump had more sense.

“As you said this week, there are good and bad things on both sides, right?” Howie said.  Plus, he has entertained us.

Cute as a Golden Buzzer was Angelica Hale, 9 and the youngest performer.  She sang “Clarity” he vocal range was incredible, and her voice was strong. Will she make to the next round? Will see.

bello N

Do you remember Bello Nock, who was sent home from the Judge Cuts? He came back, and he was the judges Wild Card.  The judges thought what can bring. Bello Nock ran out of idea and chose “The Wheel of Death” that was terrifying to watch. First, he was inside the wheel and then outside of the wheel, that was scary that my cat fainted.  And I don’t have a cat. Did you vote for him?

Just Jerk, the Korean Dance Crew. Look what Korean import to us – Their dancing was awesome, if we voted them for the next round, they should not bomb other countries. Their movement was spectacular. Wow. I hope people voted for them. Vote for them.

Haley-Reinhart1 + puddles

One of my favorites was Puddles Pity Party, the clown if he’s in the bottom three and Haley Reinhart (right) she was one of the finalists on American Idol, she sang with him a couple of years ago.  Vote for him again. He needs to stay in the competition or the bottom two. Tough choices for the judges. I hope they would not make us wait for the last second – that’s nerve wracking. He has a fantastic voice, and he should sing the classic that’s what he’s good for. Sing the classic puddles. Pick up those phones and vote for Puddles

Preacher Lawson was hysterically funny, and he brightens up the room, and of course, Mel B did look like Mystique from the X-men. Maybe the auditorium was cold. Maybe she cuddles with Simon to stay warm? He’s my favorite. He had great stage presence, and his jokes or story was funny. I hope he stays and I hope people voted for him.

NUP_178279_1679.JPG

Rollerblading siblings, Emily and Billy England performed their challenging, synchronized routine to Imagine Dragon‘s “Believer.” These two were incredible to watch. Did I see something sharp while there spinning around in the circle?  That was incredible. Weeks ago, she held his beard; this time was dangerous lifts, spins, and scary spins. I feel like Annabelle the doll from Annabelle: the creation just had her head pop out! I hope people would vote for them. If they don’t make it, they should go to Vegas anyway; they did perform for Britain’s Got Talents a couple of years ago.

Be sure to watch America’s Got Talent Tuesday and Wednesday 8 pm on NBC! Watch it live with your family.  You are missing the greatest show on NBC. And take a break from doing Homework!

Phoenix Forgotten

PHoenix Forgotten 1

It was 1997 when I heard the news of a UFO sighted over Phoenix Arizona; it was the same year I graduated from ECSU. The same year I believe in UFOs do exist, and the whole town saw it, and even the network news broadcast the UFO. I saw my UFO encounter when I was a teenager, and it was real.

The movie version of Phoenix Forgotten totally took it in a realistic possibility of what if this could be real. Ridley Scott, producer, and director of hit blockbuster movies such as Aliens, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and The Martian. Produced the movie along with the first-time director Justin Barber created an epic adventure of three teens who investigated the Phoenix Lights in 1997 and they vanished out of thin air. It was 20 years later when the sister wanted to know what happened to her brother and his friends. She found a second camera and tapes that he recorded the events and being abducted by aliens. The movie is being compared to The Blair Witch Project, but totally different.  It’s a found movie, which is popular in film making. His sister found the missing tapes and cameras that he used to investigate. It was a great story by T.S. Nowlin and Justin Barber.

Phoenix Forgoten 2

This movie was quite scary and good; they used real footage of the UFO that was sighted and the governor of Arizona doing a mockery that aliens and UFO don’t exist, but later on, he confessed that he believes in UFO’s and aliens do exist.

Cast of PHoenix Forgoten

The actors are Chelsea Lopez, Florence Hartigan, Justin Matthews, and Luke Spencer Roberts.

If you haven’t seen it, you should rent it and watch it. And don’t watch it alone watch it with a friend.

Annabelle: The Creation

Anna MP

If you love horror movies and suspense, Annabelle: The Creation will scare the crap out of you. Ever since, the first Annabelle movie wasn’t that scary enough, but it was a true story in the 1970’s when two nurses found this old Raggedy Ann doll laying around somewhere and decided to keep it and not knowing it was evil, this was a true case file from the Ed and Lorraine Warren a Roman Catholic couple who were highly controversial American paranormal investigators.

When you watch this movie, this movie will suck the air out of the theater leaving you breathless. The quietness and the stillness will make it scarier and creepy. Everything is standing still until a movement that scares the crap out of you, and you pee in your pants.

This movie will make you jump,  but don’t watch it alone, bring a friend and a pillow.

Talitha Bateman 3

 

Polio-stricken Janice (Talitha Bateman, above ) and her BFF Linda (the lively Lulu Wilson, below), who basically are shunned by the older girls and forced to bunk together. In no time, they discover the dead daughter’s old bedroom, as well as one used as a space for designing doll outfits!  They see the demonic doll, and it takes the life of its own and stalks the inhabitants of the house.

Lulu Wilson 3

David Sandberg, the director, finds inventive ways to position her around the house without losing the idea she is just a doll and not a living organism. For example, like Chucky from Child’s Play. Chucky Child’s Play is based on the same premise as Annabelle, but scarier.

The Conjuring universe as created by James Wan, and, like Conjuring 2, has ratcheted up the stakes for all to follow. And you can bet that if moviegoers react like the crowd, I saw it with an audience and it was good. I pee twice in my pants. There will be more, Wan and Peter Safran produced for New Line Cinema and Warner Bros, which unleashes the terror on Friday.

By the way, if the movie is too scary. You can leave, but make sure you watch a hilarious TV show or movie – especially comedies to get the horror images and sound from the movie out of your head. You will never know what will follow you and if you hear creepy noises in your house alone or with a couple friends with you. Watching horror movies can have that affect on the mind with the images and sound.  Watch the movie in the afternoon and later go to church.

Do you plan to see Annabelle: The Creation? Let us know what you think.

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming

Sharknado MP

If you haven’t seen it, and you think it’s ridiculous, and probably you will see it Sharknado 5 on the Syfy channel. One thing it is a parody of one of the adventure movies from the 1980’s, well one of them. And they have very witty, clever lines and word play (more like Easter eggs in the movie or reference either to the actors or other movies.) And we were laughing at them. It was meant to do that. Make us laugh at them. We were their laugh track for the movie.

The main stars are Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. The story of the movie is quite simply Fin and April travel around the globe to save their son who’s trapped inside a Sharknado vertex porthole. April got eaten by a shark and turned into an indestructible android with nuclear powers.

This time the movie was much better than last year Sharknado 4: The Fourth Awakens. Crazy title, but the plot was when Fin and his family and the cosmos have been blissfully Sharknado-free in the five years (in the future) since the most recent attack, but now sharks and tornados are being whipped up in unexpected ways and places. You must see it.

The CGI was quite good too with the sharks and the tornado not realistic but appropriate realistic for the movie. Will it get nominated for an Emmy? I guess.

Anyway, the cameos are one of the who’s who in the entertainment business and they were:

Jena Sims as NATO Delegate Lee

Cassandra Scerbo as Nova Clarke

Masiela Lusha as Gemini

Olivia Newton-John

Dan Fogler

Charo as Queen of England

Lucy Pinder as Swedish Ambassador

Cody Linley as Matt Shepard

Gilbert Gottfried

Chris Kattan as British Prime Minister

Katie Price as Prime Minister’s PA

Caprice Bourret as Polaris

David Naughton as David Naughton

Margaret Cho

Chloe Lattanzi as Electra

Fabio as The Pope

Kathie Lee Gifford as Herself

Hoda Kotb as Herself

Al Roker as Himself

Bret Michaels

Tony Hawk

Greg Louganis

Russell Hodgkinson as Steven Beck

Ross Mullan as Dr. Wobbegon

Abby Lee Miller

Clay Aiken

And they were hysterical to watch, either they were eaten by sharks or if the sharks spit them out! It was funny.

Rent it if you get a chance. Or Netflix and chill for a date night in front of your TV, and watch it with the kids. They might like it too.  The encore for Sharknado 5 is on Saturday, August 12,  2017.

Haunted South Texas Motel

Ghost Hotel

When we see a ghost on videos, we all think it’s a fake, it’s impossible to hoax or prank something that is not there. We all have our favorite show such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, by watching these shows we think we could be experts like them to detect a ghost. Are we experts? No, we are not. We have paranormal investigators who can detect ghost better than us. And someone has to die first to be a poltergeist.

In Harlingen, Texas a man video tapes a poltergeist activity in a South Texas motel, that is going viral on the internet and over 1 million views who watch it.

Do we believe we in ghost? Still no?

When Frank Ramirez posted the video of the poltergeist activity he said “IDK what it is, but I know it was here. You be the judge. Hotel in Harlingen, Tx.”

He tells us you be the judge. Meaning us if it is real or not. He had witnessed this. We did not see what happened. We could dissect the video frame by frame to see what is going on like we are CSI agents. But we are not CSI or Sherlock Holmes. To pull a prank or hoax it takes practice or even a couple of weeks to do this thing.

            Read This  True Horror Stories of Texas

Many people on Facebook claimed that he used the fishing line when pulling the items. Do you see fishing lines? It would have been reflected with the lights on in the room.

Plus, he was coming from work, and he decided to stay at this hotel, because it was cheap – I think and he needed to rest, eventually he was awakening by some poltergeist activity in the room.

So go ahead and think it is haunted or not. But there was death that happened over a year ago, a lady stayed in the same exact room and her face was scratch.

Here’s the video:

 

(If this link works – good  if not sorry)

When KSAT called Country Side Inn on Saturday, an employee said the motel had “nothing to say” about the video and that they were not authorized to speak on the matter, that means the workers did not want to get fired from their job.

What do you think?

Haunted Universities

The sound of footsteps, door slamming, and children laughing are the creepiest sound that you might hear in the dead of night when you are fast asleep in your dorm room and be awakened in the middle of the night.  Most of the universities are haunted, but they are the most popular universities to go and they have an excellent curriculum.

Montcalri State University

Montclair State University in New Jersey is said to be one of the most haunted colleges in America.  For years there have been reports of doors and windows slamming, lights flickering on and off, constant cold, and even a ghost who hovers over the beds of the students.

Montclair is built on top of Indian burial grounds, and alumni say it’s a very scary school. So scary, that many refuse to go in the woods after sundown. There have been many reports of figures believed to be Native Americans spotted in the forests.

Students reported appliances and lights turned on and off, bedroom and bathroom doors would have opened and the sound of a little girl laughing in the hallway.  Door knobs would rattle too.

A female resident woke up in the middle of the night to find a man dressed in 19th-century clothing standing over her bed with a loving facial expression. She thought that it was her roommate’s boyfriend and told him that he had the wrong bed. After saying this, she watched the man suddenly vanish into thin air.

Cal State University

Cal State University Channel Islands (Camarillo, CA)

It is never a good idea to build a university on the grounds of an old insane asylum it was closed in 1997, and it was used as a film location for Halloween (1978).  Since it was abandoned for several years, in 2002, they opened Cal State, and students have reported seeing the universities old residents wandering the grounds, halls, and streets of Cal State. Inmates are seen entering rooms which are empty upon investigation. Another inmate dances in a parking lot at night, only to fade as he approaches the streetlights. Scarier still are the violent ghosts who have thrown objects, knocked students over, and vandalized locked classrooms.

Fordam

Fordham University

Fordham’s Bronx campus is creepy looking enough to have been featured in The Exorcist (the campus was used in the filming of The Exorcist), and its plethora of ghost stories stand up to its frightening feel: the school, which dates back to 1841, was built atop of old hospitals and morgues and it is haunted by every kind of ghost, from children to priests.

More will come …

Boo… What’s that behind you!

Dude Where’s my Classes?

Class pic

When your child enters a college or university, it will be so different than high school, no more bell sounds, the students will be all over in the hallways bumping into you, and they have to carry fifteen pounds of books on their back! I hope they have medical insurance for a chiropractor! It will be a different world when they enter.

First, they need a map of the campus to find all of the buildings they need to go for their classes. Most of the time they will spend their lives in the library, that’s the place to do homework. The dorm room is a place to sleep and do more homework.

Classes may be in different buildings or the other side of the campus. I hope they have the gym shoes, it’s time for the shoes to do some walking and it is the best time to do some cardio too.

Here’s a tip, try to have your classes nearby to other buildings, so you don’t have to rush or run to classes, and be late.  A possible a hand-written excuse from your professors to give? No. Don’t be late to classes.

Back in high school, they used to get up early for their eight o’clock classes or earlier for activities before classes.

Try to arrange your classes between 10:00 am through 2:30 pm, that means you still have to get up in the morning. Do you really want to get up five o’clock in the morning or before sunrise or see an apparition in your room that wasn’t supposed to be there? Your room is haunted!  You are up anyway, might as well get ready and finished that homework assignment. And eat breakfast.  And try to schedule any activities in the afternoon or evenings.  If a class is overbooked in the morning, don’t worry you won’t be dragged across the floor just schedule another time when it is available, if they have a midnight class, take it.

If you have a gap between classes don’t just sit there and do nothing or meditate, you might fall asleep on the couch or someone’s lap – that would be awkward if she’s attractive get her phone number.

Highlight the materials or rewrite your notes, in cursive to get a better understanding and prepared for the next class. Um, you all know that cursive is required in writing notes in class. Do you? Oh well.

Organize your backpack, have your notebook and books in order of class schedule times. Don’t leave your cell phone out; there’s a clock in the room, remember there is no class bell only your professor will excuse you.

Make sure you have the University app on your phone, this will alert you if there’s an emergency that the school has to close down due to weather.  Check your campus email. Check your assignment online too; there’s no excuse that your assignment will be late anymore. All of the assignments will be scan and monitor through online – that’s right your papers will be scanned for plagiarisms, even I don’t like it. I write well. However, the professor doesn’t read the papers anymore.
