“I always feel like somebody’s watching me” and just like the song by Rockwell, Ally is becoming annoying paranoid. We really can’t blame her. This past election has made everyone paranoid. I know Ally is such a drama queen, but the clowns can push anyone over the edge. On this week of American Horror Story, we wonder what Dr. Rudy’s connection is to this madness? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

I know nothing about the game of soccer other than having watched my grandsons play this game for their school’s team many years ago. I’m not really a sports fan and never played sports due to the fact that I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time, but two things happened over the summer to make me a soccer fan. What is the Benevento Calcio? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

This is the final addition to my story about visiting Benevento, Amalfi and Capri with my family. My ninety-one-year-old Uncle Mario was still complaining about his lost luggage depending on what he was missing at that moment be it his special razor, binoculars, or toenail trimmer. Ricky’s name was, by now, known all over the Amalfi coast because that’s all my cousins, me, and most of our neighbors would hear whenever my uncle needed anything. “Where’s Ricky?”

Calling on Ricky, Ricky, Ricky for everything had become the norm, and we understood this. Hey, the guy is ninety-one and he was brave enough to go on this trip…plus the airport did lose his suitcase…but Ricky did find a way to disappear if only for a few hours with some hiking and a scooter ride down the coasts. What treasures did Pompeii and Capri offer us before our trip home? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

This past week we were given a double treat when Midnight Texas was featured on two separate nights. This little gem is reaching its season finale, and I’m hoping that there is a second season. Midnight Texas has all the gimmicks to succeed: broody protagonist; a town located on the edge of nowhere; a vampire; werewolf; a witch; a female assassin; and a gay fallen angel, but more importantly, this series offers a new monster each episode. Manfred has run away. Can Xylda get him to return to his destiny? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

I grew up loving horror stories. They didn’t frighten me. Why should they when I was able to see dead people, who by the way are mostly nicer than the living. The real horror stories, I’ve learned over time, are the events that happen in real life: man’s inhumanity to man. Unlike Mr. Rogers, who encouraged us to know the people in our neighborhood, this episode of “American Horror Story” does just the opposite. What is that rascally Kai up to? Find out after the jump.
