Here we are in the middle of April and we are half a year away until the newest season of American Horror Story.  Season 8 was quite explosive last year as American Horror Story: Apocalypse revolved around Michael Langdon, the powerful demon that was born in American Horror Story: Murder House.  From the very first episode, it has been a whirlwind of seasons crossing over upon each other.  There were many elements from different seasons that were wrapped into one amazing story line.

It may still be early in the year, but a MAJOR teaser was recently dropped last week.  The teaser dropped the newest season which will be known as… AHS: 1984.

The teaser shows a young teenage girl running through the woods at night.  A tall, dark masked man slowly chases after her.  She finds shelter in an abandoned barn.  Even still, the masked man still catches up to her.  Seconds later, the teaser ends with the masked man driving a knife through the barn door.  With that, the scene reveals the season’s title ‘AHS 1984’.

Interestingly enough, 1984 was quite a significant year for slasher movies.  Some infamous movies that came out that year include Friday the 13th, Children of the Corn, Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Hills Have Eyes.  All four movies gained nationwide success, creating a major cult following among horror movie fans everywhere.

With this new title released, what kind of story can we see this year?  Will American Horror Story become a slasher-themed horror movie for this season?  Could the season be set at summer camp?  Who is the masked man that followed the girl into that barn?

This one teaser already came packed with many unanswered questions to answer.  Will start finding out the answers soon enough.

For now, let’s take the time to celebrate the revealing of this year’s season titled AHS: 1984.  Who knows what kind of adventurous ride we will be in for this fall?

Bong Appétit was a unique cannabis cooking series that showcased all of the steps and ingredients necessary for a 4/20-friendly meal.  All types of foods from different cultures were infused with cannabis one way or another.  The show took cannabis edibles to the next level each time.

            I am definitely pumped for new episodes of Bong AppétitBong Appétit is one of those intriguing cannabis cooking shows I can definitely get into.  Rather than be all silly and cliché (like Cooking While High), Bong Appétit gets to the science part as well.  There is a whole science that goes to the infusion of THC and CBD within certain meals.

2/2 Groundhog Day Quote

When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn’t imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.

~ Phil Connors, Groundhog Day

Cold Remedy Treatment Tips

Last week I got hit with a bad cold.  After a fun night in Boston with some friends, my cold kicked into high gears the next morning.  I could barely concentrate on the computer screen, let alone bring myself to type out another magnificent creation.  It was the kind of day to lay down and binge-watch shows on Netflix for hours on end.

One week later and I now remain sick-free.  It was quite a while until I was feeling 100%, being that it took some legwork each day.  The cold didn’t disappear with just one medicine alone.  In fact, it took a combination of various health tools that were at my disposal.

If you’re a professional businessman like me and need to cure your sickness as soon as possible, there are a few great remedies to help alleviate your symptoms.  Here are a few of my remedies I used to ail my cold this past week:

Tea (and other liquids)

Everyone always says you must start drinking more liquids as soon as you get sick.  I’ll do you one even better – I drank even more tea than usual.  Any and all types of tea will work.  Green, black, white, herbal, and mint are a few of many great teas you should be drinking each day.  Tea has many antioxidant properties that help flush out toxins that are causing you to be sick.

Drinking liquids when your sick will help, but tea will alleviate your symptoms even faster.

DayQuil/NyQuil

Taking DayQuil and NyQuil were a good routine for treating the cold as well.  DayQuil helps with the symptoms throughout the day.  NyQuil is perfect before bedtime to help get to sleep faster (it causes drowsiness, so its important to take it at night!).  They come in either liquid form or even in gel caps.

Emergen-C

Before starting your work day, be sure to pack an Emergen-C and water on the go.  Emergen-C is a powered drink mix vitamin supplement that is packed with tons of vitamin C; in fact, one packet contains 1,000 mg of it.  Vitamin C is the perfect remedy for knocking out the cold while in the office.

Tea, Emergen-C, and a touch of DayQuil are a few of many remedies to help relieve your cold.  We are still in the winter months, so expect more cold days to come here in Massachusetts.  Nevertheless, you can still treat your cold while braving the frigid temperatures each day.

AHS Apocalypse Crossovers Recap


Alrighty folks, we have just a few days left until the last month of the year.  November is ending soon, which is still quite a shock being that I’m still reeling in from the hearty Thanksgiving dinner.  The one thing that has still been lingering around my mind was the season finale of American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse quickly became my favorite season after the first few episodes.  The 8th chapter featured intriguing characters, horrific tragedies, and one warped Antichrist known as Michael Langdon.  But what really got me hooked on the latest season was the range of crossover events that happened in many episodes.  Various plots from different season intertwined into one complex story line, spinning different characters into the same AHS universe.

These twisted crossover events truly made the show that much more entertaining.  Each character, both new and old, played their part in the battle against Michael Langdon.

To celebrate this clever type of storyline, it’s time to look back on the best crossover events that happened during season eight.  What’s interesting to note is that some of these crossovers intertwined with more than one season as well.

Here’s the recap of the major crossover events that happened during American Horror Story: Apocalypse:

Episode 1 – The End

Our first crossover event kicks off none other than the main man himself, Michael Langdon.  Michael Langdon was born from Tate and Vivien back in American Horror Story: Murder House.  Little Michael is all grown up and created the Apocalypse that happened during the episode.

Episode 2 – The Morning After

Other than Michael Langdon, The Rubber Man is another significant enemy that returned from season one.  The Rubber Man first made his appearance in the first episode, reappearing every now and then in the Murder House.  He returned to season eight, haunting more victims in Outpost 3.

Episode 3 – Forbidden Fruit

Myrtle Snow, Cordelia, and Madison Montgomery all made their return after everyone consumed the poisoned apple.  You may remember these powerful witches from American Horror Story: Coven.  This would be the start of the infamous Murder House/Coven crossover that would occur throughout the season.

Episode 4 – Could it Be… Satan?

Image result for american horror story Apocalypse Queenie

We see more crossovers with American Horror Story: Coven as we enter Miss Robichaux’s Academy, the witch’s coven.  Queenie makes her return as we learned she was still trapped in the Hotel Cortez.  This scene marks a triple crossover event of American Horror Story: Murder House, American Horror Story: Coven, and American Horror Story: Hotel.  Three crossovers woven under one united storyline.  It was certainly an ingenious event to behold.

The other one takes place near the end when Michael Langdon fetches Madison Montgomery from her personal hell.  Montgomery was placed there at the end of American Horror Story: Coven.  Langdon fetches both Queenie and Madison from their hells, driving more former characters into the new season.

Episode 5 – Boy Wonder

Episode five takes us to a familiar test known as the Seven Wonders.  Four witches (Madison, Queenie, Misty, Zoe) performed this test back in American Horror Story: Apocalypse to see who would become the next Supreme.  Michael Langdon performs the test, acing every aspect each time.

One of his tasks during the Seven Wonders was to retrieve Misty Day from her personal hell.  Misty Day was the infamous witch who used natural ingredients to bring things back to life.  She was sent to her personal hell by the end of the third season, dissecting frogs all day.

By the end, we get a preview of one of the biggest crossover events of the century – the return of The Murder House.

Episode 6 – Return to Murder House

This was one of the BIGGEST crossover events ever – Return to the Murder House.  It was here where the AHS universe all started, the haunted house where multiple murders happened throughout the decades.  We got every one of our favorite former characters back into the story – Ben and Vivien Harmon, Tate, Violet, Moira O’Hara.  But the best cameo of all was the return of Constance Langdon aka Jessica Lange.  Lange returned to her role as Constance, the mother of Michael Langdon.  Each character discussed Michael’s colorful history with Madison and Behold, showcasing an even darker side of him.

Returning to the Murder House helped us gather many clues about how Michael Langdon was truly born.

Episode 7 – Traitor

Voodoo queen Dinah Stevens helped to summon Papa Legba for Cordelia.  Papa Legba was the ghoulish voodoo character that took Marie Laveau’s soul back in American Horror Story: Coven.  He also still owns Nan’s soul since the third season as well.

Episode 8 – Sojourn

Things get interesting when we see Ms. Venable working for Mutt and Jeff’s corporation three years before the nuclear blast.  She was already introduced back in episode one, making this a crossover within its own season.  Not only do we learn more of Ms. Venable’s past, but we also see how Mead was recreated as an android.  Two new characters crossing over within their own seasons on this episode.

Episode 9 – Fire and Reign

Seasons one and three merge again as the coven witches continue to figure out how to defeat Michael Langdon.  Many of the main witches have been destroyed by him, creating a battle between various characters from the past seasons.

Episode 10 – Apocalypse Then

Last, but not least, we move towards the final episode.  This is where most of the loose ends start tying up.  Mallory and Coco were hidden in Outpost Three and given new identities.  The three remaining witches hid in the swamp mud to survive the nuclear blast.  They all enter Outpost Three to face Michael Langdon.

Marie Laveau resurfaces onto the scene after seeing Dinah pledge her allegiance for the antichrist.  Laveau was spending her time in her own personal hell back in American Horror Story: Coven.  She tries to fend off from Michael Langdon, but is only killed in the process.

Mallory casts her time travel spell to return to the Murder House back in 2015.  It is then that we return to the time where Constance kicks Michael out of the house after seeing a dead priest lying beside him.  Langdon steps out, only to be run over by Mallory.  This is the last time we return back to the Murder House during the season.

And thus, ends our recap of the crossover events of American Horror Story: Apocalypse.  This was quite a season filled with many twists and turns throughout.  These crossovers truly made for an incredible story.
