Professional’s Aren’t Clowning Around Anymore!!

There Just So Creepy!

I was doing some research this morning, looking into the much anticipated adaptation of Steven King’s classic horror film“IT,” scheduled to hit the theatres this weekend, when all of a sudden I found myself laughing out loud. But I maybe the only one laughing, you be the judge. I don’t personally “like” clowns, matter of fact I dislike them very much. Even as a kid I avoided those creepy multi-coloured characters. They seemed to me to be oddly sad, and uncomfortable watch, let alone to be around.

 According to one clowning official (Ahhh…Ya, it’s a real thing), “IT” is causing many professionals to loose business.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Pam Moody, the president of the World Clown Association, said she’s had members report having shows at schools and libraries suddenly canceled in recent months. And that’s thanks to “IT” and Pennywise, Moody says, noting that King’s 1986 novel and its 1990 ABC miniseries launched a wave of Coulrophobia ( It’s a real thing too) from which the World Clown Association has yet to truly recover.

Last year’s wave of creepy clown sightings, featuring pranksters in cheap Halloween masks, some of them wielding weapons while lurking in neighborhoods throughout the country, didn’t help matters either, Moody told The Hollywood Reporter. The “blindsided” organization wrote a guide for its members, timed to the release of “IT,” in response.

That guide, “WCA Stand on Scary Clowns !!,” reminds the WCA membership that the “art of clown is something to be treasured and enjoyed” and that “just because someone wears a rubber Halloween mask, that does not make one a clown!” It also recommends “that young children not be exposed to horror movies” such as “IT.” (Common sense dictates that).

As for this latest onscreen version of Pennywise, Moody wants the public to know that he doesn’t represent clowns at all, “It’s a science-fiction character,”  “It’s not a clown and has nothing to do with pro clowning.”  

I Don’t Know About You, But I Don’t Think That The Movie, “IT,” is What Is Holding Back Such A Failing Creative Art’s Model As Clowning.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – A Daily Living Experience

My Personal Journey with PTSD

A Very Personal Journey

Ptsd MazeThis is not something that I like to talk about. It’s very hard for me to find the words that I’m trying to write, and it’s very hard for me to not end up in a heaping mass, drenched with tears on my bedroom floor. I have been suffering in silence with PTSD for about 50 years now. I always knew that I felt “different,” I felt “separate from,” and that I felt that something was definitely wrong. That feeling of an “impending doom” has carried on with me for all of these years, it still carries on today, mater of fact, almost everyday. It’s been a good day when I can stay distracted enough to engage with life’s daily monotony, let alone certain challenges that we all face from time to time. I feel overwhelmed most of the time. I spend a good percentage of the day mentally talking myself through the most mundane tasks, trying not to get overwhelmed, staying emotionally regulated, checking and re-checking my emotions and behaviours “It’s exhausting.”

What is PTSD Anyway?

The Canadian Mental Health Association say’s;

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental illness. It often involves exposure to trauma from single events that involve death or the threat of death or serious injury. PTSD may also be linked to ongoing emotional trauma, such as abuse in a relationship.

Something is traumaticWhat is PTSD when it is very frightening, overwhelming and causes a lot of distress. Trauma is often unexpected, and many people say that they felt powerless to stop or change the event. Traumatic events may include crimes, natural disasters, accidents, war or conflict, sexual violence or other threats to life or safety. It could be an event or situation that you experience yourself or something that happens to others, including loved ones.

PTSD causes intrusive symptoms such as re-experiencing the traumatic event. Many people have vivid nightmares, flashbacks, or thoughts of the event that seem to come from nowhere. They often avoid things that remind them of the event—for example, someone who was hurt in a car crash might avoid driving.

PTSD can make people feel very nervous or “on edge” all the time. Many feel startled very easily, have a hard time concentrating, feel irritable, or have problems sleeping well. They may often feel like something terrible is about to happen, even when they are safe. Some people feel very numb and detached. They may feel like things around them aren’t real, feel disconnected from their body or thoughts, or have a hard time feeling emotions.

People also experience a change in their thoughts and mood related to the traumatic event. For some people, alcohol or other drugs can be a way to cope with PTSD.

Stranger Things Season Two

Watch The Season Two Video Teaser

With season two of Stranger Things on its way the Duffer Brothers have confirmed a third season! And a fourth!

“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross Duffer told Vulture. “I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year,” Duffer added. The cast were fairly quiet on what the story-line will be, but we’ve been promised a “bigger season in some regards”. There will no doubt be more trailers coming out in the near future but for now, this will have to do.Season 2 will be a continuation of the first season.

Matt Duffer has said: “Season 1 actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time.”So part of what we want to do with hypothetical (yeah right) Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”The cast were fairly quiet on what the story-line will be, but we’ve been promised a “bigger season in some regards.”

The trailer was shown at San Diego Comic Con and it shows the Upside Down is nowhere near finished, plus there’s plenty of Will and Vincent Price’s voice-over from Micheal Jackson’s Thriller. Season 2 premieres October 27, 2017.

It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

Emmy nominations

Stranger Things composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein were nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for their work on the series. “I was on the way to the dentist when I heard the news,” said Kyle Dixon. “Glad I wasn’t already in the chair or I would have missed the call!” “We’re thrilled to be nominated!” added Michael Stein.“It’s a great feeling to be included alongside so many other great composers. It is an honour and a treat.”

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor – Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!!!

It’s Almost Here!!

After many, many months of negotiating, ego pounding, and unparalleled posturing, the biggest fight of the millennium is very nearly here. Next Saturday August 26, the once-retired all-time great boxer Floyd Mayweather, will take on UFC’s biggest star Conor McGregor, in Las Vegas Nevada, with the fortunate in attendance, and millions more watching from around the planet.

In the last few months we have been witness to an escalation of name-calling and animosity from both sides, as the sensationalized rivalry intensifies ahead of the big day.

No mater what your point of view, it will either be the boxing match of the millennium or a money grabbing abomination. Let’s face it you have a match up between a once retired boxer (Mayweather) with a 49-0 record, facing a man who is the UFC’s biggest draw, completely fighting out of his professional genera, and has never taken part in a professional boxing match.

What’s the Estimated Purse?

The figure depends on a number of different variables, including pay-per-view sales, various world pricing structures, ticket sales, etc. However if PPV revenue stays in line with estimates, the fight purse is likely to be worth a whopping $300 million US, with total revenues possibly in excess of $500 million US. If you plan on watching from home, you can receive coverage anywhere on the planet for $20 US here.

What’s the Split?

A confidentiality agreement is in place and the exact split will not be revealed. However, reports suggest the difference may be a 70-25 or 75-30 split in Mayweather’s favour. A massive payday for both, indeed!!!
