Happy Monday readers!  We are about halfway through August today; more importantly though is that the newest season of American Horror Story drops in just a month.  One more month until we dive into the next chapter of this amazing horror-themed anthropology series.  There has been some MAJOR news released within the past few weeks.

Let me tell you something folks – there are LOTS of juicy details about the newest season.  It has been months since the finale of American Horror Story: Cult and things are about to get a lot spookier in American Horror Story: Apocalypse.  Now’s the time to go through the biggest reveals for the next chapter.

First off, we’ll start with the new teaser trailer.  FX just released the first teaser trailer for American Horror Story: Apocalypse.  The teaser starts with an unborn baby inside an hourglass being attached to a beating heart via the umbilical cord.  That beating heart catches fire, only to have a bomb go off in the middle of nowhere.  Through the clouds of smoke, we see a female wearing a gas mask leaning next to a deceased man wearing a surgical mask.

Seconds later, the body turns to a dark black skull that gets pulled into a thick, oil-like liquid.  We then cut to a scene where a purple fig is being cut in half by a dark fingernail, only to reveal two scorpions fighting one another.  One is a black scorpion and the other is white (this imagery is foreshadowing a fight that will happen among two groups during the apocalypse).  The camera zooms up to a circular window with the pentagram symbol.  Hundreds of bats fly through the window, which shatters the glass and catches on fire.

After that, the pentagram is engraved onto a box being pulled into the fire by a dark figure.  The next scene afterwards shows hundreds of skulls falling into a pit that is encased within the hourglass.  That hourglass is turned over, with the skulls falling into the bottom.  We are then left with the title of this season.

That first teaser trailer isn’t the only exciting thing that happened lately.  More actors and actresses have also been announced to return to the series as well.  Your favorite witches of American Horror Story: Coven will be returning this season.  Taissa Famiga, Lily Rabe, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, and even Stevie Nicks would be returning in their reprised roles (it IS a Murder House-Coven crossover after all!).  They will be joining AHS veterans Emma Roberts and Sarah Paulson in this apocalypse-themed chapter.

Oh yeah, I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet.  One AHS veteran that will be making her return this year is… Jessica Lange.  You heard me right – JESSICA LANGE is returning to American Horror Story this year!  Lange will be reprising her role as Constance Langdon, who is the mother of Michael Langdon.  Michael Langdon will be played by Cody Fern, who was David Madson in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

             We have just one month left to wait until American Horror Story: Apocalypse releases this fall.  With all of this news release, this is sure to be one exciting season.  I don’t know about you guys, but I am DEFINITELY geared up for the apocalyptic chapter.

            Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the newest title of the Super Smash Bros. franchise being released this year.  Nintendo made the announcement less than a month ago, with many fans excited about the latest installment.  Fans will be able to play through all of the original characters as well as the new characters that come into play.  It will be one of many hot titles coming up for the holiday.

But other than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo released some more intriguing news.  Nintendo plans to release Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-themed GameCube-styled controllers.

These three controllers are designed in reference to various characters of the Nintendo Universe.  They were designed by PDP, a third-party company that is responsible for all kinds of Nintendo accessories.  You can choose from either the blue, yellow, or red controllers.  The red controller highlights the Mario universe (being that the big ‘M’ is on the top center), the yellow controller showcases the Pokémon universe (a silhouette of Pikachu is on the top), and the blue controller depicts the logo for The Legend of Zelda.

Other than the creative colors, one unique aspect is the ability to customize your GameCube-styled controller.  Players can detach the C-Stick from their GameCube controller and replace it with a regular analog stick.  It makes for an interesting feature for gamers alike.  Fans can expect to use this controller when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is released.

This makes for a great product marketing tactic.  With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate coming out for the holiday season, releasing these creative controllers will get audiences more excited about the game.  The custom features will even make for a more enjoyable experience as well.  Nintendo is making a great move by releasing this controller alongside with the new Super Smash Bros. title.  Not only will gamers be able to get Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this holiday season, but they will be able to collect these stylish controllers as well.

In the end, Nintendo will be making big waves this holiday season with their new title and the three creative controllers coming out this year.  Be sure to pick up a copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this winter!

One of my favorite folk singers is Gregory Alan Isakov.  Gregory Alan Isakov emigrated to US from South Africa and was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  He is now a Colorado-based Indie Folk artist who makes music and is a full-time farmer.  His music is a combination of Indie and folk, featuring instruments like banjos and guitars into his songs.

Gregory Alan Isakov released six albums since this year.  His latest album was with The Colorado Symphony in Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony.  Many of his hit songs can be heard of in shows like Suits, Californication, Rectify, The Blacklist, and even Girls (which features my personal favorite song ‘Amsterdam’).  Fans nationwide go to see this famous folk singer whenever he is in the area.

When he is not making music, Gregory Alan Isakov goes out on his nationwide tour every year.  This year he has other plans in store for audiences.  Fans can be happy to know that Gregory Alan Isakov plans to release a new album this year.

The new album is called Evening Machines and it will be released on October 5th.  This album features twelve new tracks to listen to.  You can listen to the track ‘Chemicals’ online to get a taste of the album.

This is really exciting news!  I saw Gregory Alan Isakov last year in Boston and he was absolutely amazing.  He played every famous song and more, giving the crowd quite a show.  The best part was when he broke into the starting notes for ‘Amsterdam’.  Gregory Alan Isakov played such an awesome show that summer.

I’m really looking forward to Gregory Alan Isakov’s Evening Machines.  The featured song ‘Chemicals’ was already great to listen to and I’m sure that his other songs will be even better.  Fall is looking to be even better with the release of Gregory Alan Isakov’s new album being released.

If you’re looking for some good Indie Folk music, be sure to check out Evening Machines by Gregory Alan Isakov on October 5th.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse

As we roll in halfway through summer, one of my favorite TV series has been lingering in my mind – American Horror Story.  It has been half a year since American Horror Story: Cult and I have received very few clues about what the next season holds.  Only thing that was confirmed were the cast of characters returning for the season (Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and other veterans!).

So many questions were swooshing around my mind.  What will the next chapter of American Horror Story be about?  Will it have some connection with season one and three?  And on top of that, what freaky AHS promotional poster will pop up next?

Well folks – the suspense is FINALLY over.  The new season this year will be known as American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

This year’s season of American Horror Story feature the Coven-Murder House crossover in an Apocalyptic theme.  A tweet was released by @AHSFX featuring the newest promotional poster for the show.  The poster features a blood-red baby and a pitch-black hand reaching towards it.

What’s surprising is its eerie resemblance towards the poster for American Horror Story: Murder House, featuring The Rubber Man.  If you remember back in the first season, the series concluded with the birth of Vivian Harmon (Connie Britton) and Tate Langdon’s (Evan Peters) child Michael.  Michael was known as the Antichrist throughout the season.  He was last seen being cared for by Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange).  Seems as though we will be seeing a lot more of Michael this year.

Halfway through summer and we get this pleasant surprise.  This year’s chapter of American Horror Story will feature lots of connections between each season and characters.  Who knows what other characters (or even monsters!) will return in the AHS universe.

I am definitely pumped to check out this year’s season of American Horror Story!  While Fall is still months away, American Horror Story always gets me excited.  It will be interesting to see what this apocalyptic theme looks like.

Be sure to check out American Horror Story: Apocalypse on September 12th at 10 PM on FX!

Final Thoughts Before July 1st


Image result for Summer

As we enter the last Friday of June, we quickly realize that July is approaching.  Summer has been the key phrase in many of the past post these days.  Another month of summer means more outdoor event happening all across cities.  This the time for more leisure, taking time away from the work week to enjoy the outdoors.

But if anything, July marks one special thing – recreational cannabis dispensaries opening in the state of Massachusetts.  Even in the dog days of summer, this will be one mystery that will be played out over the next few months.

What will this recreational market look like? Will there be a shift within the marketing curve happening in the near future?  If so, could this lead towards the favor of the cannabis industry?

Image result for Sunset Philosophy

Who knows how this industry will play out.  It will be interesting to see what a regulated recreational cannabis system will look like in the near future.  Many kinks will have to be worked out, yet all of those kinks go towards creating a more beneficial industry.

Image result for Sunset Philosophy

If there is ever something for PR pros to keep watch of this summer (and beyond), it’s the recreational cannabis industry.  This is the year where you will see a lot of buzz going to pot (LITERALLY!).  Whether the publicity be good or bad, one thing’s for certain – cannabis is definitely the talk of the town around Massachusetts these days.

Happy Friday folks and don’t forget to hold onto your seats.  It’s about to get a LOT more interesting in July.
