Anonymous Claims NASA Is About To Reveal Details About Alien Life

(PCM) A new YouTube video posted by the hacking group Anonymous claims that NASA has concrete proof of alien life and will soon be releasing the truth to the general public. In the 12-minute video released by Anonymous they explain that NASA has already been in contact with the intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations and this proves the theory that intelligent life forms exist on planets other than Earth.

Anonymous goes on the further explain that NASA has known the information for quite some time, however they are trying to determine the best time to release the information to the public to avoid mass hysteria and chaos. While many still continue to dismiss Anonymous’s claims as “conspiracy theory”, NASA has been dropping their own batch of hints about the possibility of intelligent life on other planets.

They have recently revealed that they have discovered several other Earth-like planets that could support organic life forms and have been shifting the focus of many of their mission to the study of astrobiology. The new information obtained by Anonymous is purely speculative at this point in the game, however we can certainly see where they would reach a lot of these conclusions based upon NASA’s recent work and the small hints that have been dropped over the years.

We still feel it will be a good number of years before NASA ever fully discloses the truth about intelligent life on other planets, but it is rather egotistical of us to believe that we are the only planet in the entire galaxy that could possibly have intelligent life forms. For now we will just have to wait and see, but don’t you think this news for Anonymous comes just a little too close to “Independence Day” to be a coincidence. Just remember … the truth is out there!  You can check out Anonymous’s video below … why do they always have to make them so darn creepy! The Guy Fawkes mask is just unnerving!

Barb Will See Justice In ‘Stranger Things’ Season Two!

(AOTN) Being huge fans of the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” and of course being a member of “Team Barb” we, of course, are overjoyed at the news that our beloved character will be seeing some kind of justice when season two of the hit series returns this October.

No, this does not mean that Barb will be coming back from the dead, but rest assured her character has not been forgotten. Many fans were angered that Barb’s mysteriously disappearance and untimely death in the series was for the most part ignored by the main characters in the series. They even started the social media hashtag #JusticeForBarb!

The show was stolen by Eleven, played by the incredible Millie Bobby Brown, and the search for Will in season one, however Barb, played by actress Shannon Purser, stole our hearts and we definitely feel the character deserves some kind of closure in the upcoming season.

Actor David Harbour, who plays police chief Jim Hopper in the series, spoke with TV Guide and commented on the Justice For Barb movement saying “Barb is clearly dead. But as a result, I think, of some of the fandom and also as a result of what we want to explore, justice for Barb is a big thing in Season two. Barb was not given the justice she deserved in Season 1 because we were focused on Will and saving a child, but so we’ve realized from the fans that Barb is important, and so we are going to treat her with the respect that she deserves.”

This news should be satisfying to fans and we will just have to wait and see what the Duffer Brothers will do to give the character her due closure. Now it’s time to wait on the edge of our seats until season two of “Stranger Things” begins streaming on October 31st.

Doctors Warn About Dangers Of Using Coca-Cola As Self-Tanner

(PCM) One of the latest summer beauty trends that is making the rounds is using Coca-Cola (yes, the beverage) as a self-tanner. People will seemingly try just about anything when attempting to get a nice golden glow, however doctors warn that using Coca-Cola as a self-tanning oil can pose some serious health risks and cause permanent damage to your skin.

Advocates of the Coca-Cola self-tanning method claim that the soda can enhance your caramel skin tones, giving your skin a nice even bronzing. While this may be the case, doctors warn that many of the other chemicals contained in Coca-Cola can cause a lot of breakage and irreversible damage to the skin when they are exposed to direct sunlight.

When speaking with Allure Magazine ,Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City claims, “Applying Coca-Cola to the skin may lead to a temporary darkening or staining of the skin, but because sodas are acidic, it may exfoliate dead cells, enhancing the ability of UV light to penetrate into the skin. Ultimately, this may increase your risk of a sunburn.”

The use of Coca-Cola as a self-tanner was really big in the UK, so much so that the Coca-Cola website in the UK even made a post about it in their FAQ section saying they would not recommend using the product as a self-tanner, as there is no sun protection factor in it, as it is a drink.

There you have it folk! Coca-Cola as a self-tanner is just a bad idea! Stay safe and enjoy it as a beverage (like it was intended) instead!

Avenged Sevenfold Set Fire To The SOLD OUT BB&T Pavilion

AVENGED SEVENFOLD made their way into Camden, NJ’s BB&T Pavilion on June 21st for their “free” show which was the rescheduled date for all of those who were World Wired Tour ticket holders from the Philadelphia Metallica show that Avenged could not perform at back in May due to guitarist, Synyster Gates welcoming his new son to the world and be with his wife as she gave birth. We’d like to say a huge congratulations to Synyster Gates and best of luck with your new son. Philadelphia filled the BB&T Pavilion beyond capacity as the box office gave out all remaining tickets at no cost as a courtesy, which made for a sold out show. M.Shadows joking at times throughout the night about the rescheduling of the show even saying halfway through their set “Goodnight everybody, Metallica’s up next, Oh wait, wrong show we get to keep playing.” continuing by saying “We play nine songs on the World Wired Tour so we would be off the stage by now,” Shadows continuing by stating “You gotta admit you had a great f–king time at that show, that tour has been incredible for us.”

The opening band was Everlit, a Philadelphia based band who won a contest to open up the show which was fan voted for on 93.3 WMMR’s website. The band put on a rockin’ set and got the crowd’s energy flowing for Avenged Sevenfold’s headline set which happened shortly after them as they were direct support with no openers before them.

Next up was the highly anticipated, Avenged Sevenfold’s return to Philadelphia/Camden, NJ! Fans were in for a treat at this show as it was a headliner instead of the 9 song set that they would have put on at the World Wired Tour in Philly with Metallica. This show fans were treated to a 17 song setlist blending their new album, The Stage with older material including songs from Waking the Fallen, City of Evil, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, Self-Titled, and Nightmare. Avenged put on one of the most fierce, powerful shows I have seen from a band in awhile and fans loved every minute of it. Their production was visually intense with a beautiful lighting display, fog, lots of pyro, and a very theatrical filled video screen playing videos to perfectly match each song. Avenged’s sound was beyond flawless this night even with vocalist M.Shadows having a sore throat as he mentioned earlier in the evening, you would have never even known as his vocals were incredible. Shadows has very unique vocals that shine in each song and he was able to showcase that ability throughout their entire set. Along with his vocals is the beautiful melodic mix of instrumentals from Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass), and Brooks Wackerman (Drums). This show was definitley a force to be reckoned with when it comes to live performances as it was extraordinary, something about the show just grasped my attention just as it did everyone else in attendances. I am continuously blown away by the performance Avenged Sevenfold puts on.

Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows mentioned that they will be coming back in January/February of 2018 so stay tuned for what I would think would be a very exciting tour announcement from the band soon enough! Make sure you get out to a show they are performing and see them as they are a band that puts on an incredible live show that you DO NOT want to miss out on!

Avenged Sevenfold Return To Rock Philly Faithful

M. Shadows | Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

(TRR) There’s two things we know about Avenged Sevenfold – they are one of the most powerful heavy metal bands on the planet, and they keep their promises. The band was forced to cancel their support appearance in Philadelphia on Metallica’s WorldWired Tour back in May. Lead guitarist Synyster Gates had to fly home unexpectedly for the blessed birth of his first child. His wife, Michelle, went into labor early. Last night, the band kept their promise and returned to the BB&T Pavilion a month after their cancelled gig and gave their Philly faithful an explosive dose of redemption.

Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

The band came out to AC/DC’s “Back In Black” – an appropriate entrance given the nature of the performance. They kicked things off with “The Stage,” the title track to their latest studio LP that . After there long, sweeping opener, A7X tore into their old-school anthem “Afterlife” from their self-titled 2007 effort. Before the third song, lead vocalist M. Shadows pointed to a fan in the crowd holding up a sign. “Its your 21st birthday?” Shadows asked rhetorically. “Well, everyone is gonna help us sing this next one for you. This is your song tonight. It’s called ‘Hail To The King.’

Synyster Gates | Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

Avenged focused on their new material, Other highlights from the set included “Buried Alive,” “So Far Away,” the face-melting “Almost Easy,” and the transfixing “Acid Rain.” The band’s ultimate gem “Nightmare” was tucked nicely in the middle of the set, but stood out like an encore. Aside from being A7X’s arguably finest hour, the song has become a staple on the soundtrack of the heavy metal genre. Notably absent from the set were hits like “Welcome To The Family,” “Critical Acclaim,” “Natural Born Killers,” and “Shepherd of Fire.” However the absence of tracks like that only signify that the band’s catalog is to a point where its getting tough to chose a setlist, a goal for any band worth their salt.

M. Shadows | Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

The band returned after the 14-song set for an encore of “Bat Country,” one of their early signature classics that helped establish them as a mainstream juggernaut. Then, a “Why We Love Music Today” moment occurred. A successful marriage proposal took place on stage, followed by “A Little Piece of Heaven.” It reinforced the band’s ora of family and togetherness. The evening ended with “Unholy Confessions.” 

Johnny Christ | Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

Avenged Sevenfold were Avenged Sevenfold last night. M. Shadow’s vocals were on-point. The searing guitar licks of Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance were hotter than the pyro on stage. Since the Nightmare Tour wrapped up a few years ago, the band has seemed tired. They appear to have new life on this trek, though. Much of that may be due to being on tour with the mighty Metallica. Both bands are similar in sound and story.

M. Shadows | Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

Metallica lost bassist Cliff Burton in a tragic bus accident shortly after making what would arguably end up being the best album in their discography Master of Puppets in 1986. In 2o09, Avenged Sevenfold drummer The Rev passed away shortly before the band could record what would end up being their greatest achievement – Nightmare. Bassist Jason Newsted replaced Burton in Metallica. While the band thought they had found their forever bass player, Newsted would not be a permanent fixture in Metallica as Robert Trujillo took over in 2003 after Newsted’s departure. Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, ex- Adrenaline Mob, The Winery Dogs, Flying Colors) played drums for Avenged Sevenfold on Nightmare.

Brooks Wackerman | Avenged Sevenfold [Matt Bishop Photo]

After than, Arin Ilejay stepped behind the kit but not for long. Now, the band has former long-time Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman handling percussion. After the passing of band members, both Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold have never really found a permanent replacing for their respective deceased members. One can only assume that making peace without permanence has been the catalyst for Avenged Sevenfold’s revitalization.
