Is American Horror Story “Radically Reinventing” Itself So Jessica Lange Will Return?

BY FRANK OCKENFELS/FX
The one thing we can consistently rely on when it comes to American Horror Story is change. Each season the show changes everything from cast members to location to time period. So just how big must next season’s changes be to inspire FX president John Landgraf to call them “unusually large?” We’re guessing pretty big.

Landgraf was pretty careful to maintain an air of mystery around next year’s theme. (Something creator Ryan Murphy insists on.) But he did tease the following:

I know what it is, but I can’t [say]. I have to let Ryan do his thing on that. But it’s very different. . . One of the things I love so much about that is that it can be radically, radically reinvented in terms of tone, setting, period, characters, cast. I think there’s going to be an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 [Coven] and 4 [Freak Show].

The only problem being that what we think we know about Season (or are we calling them “Books” now?) 5 doesn’t seem all that different. Murphy already dismissed certain fan theories that next year will take place in space (that would be an unusually large reinvention) due to all the planetary references in Freak Show (e.g. Elsa Mars, “Life on Mars,” Jupiter, FL, etc.). Murphy insisted:

No. We’re not doing space. Because space is not in America. It’s American Horror Story not Intergalactic Horror Story. But I thought the clues about people thinking it was space were clever. I always love it when people come up with these theories but it is 100 percent not space. It is land-bound and it takes place in the United States.

Murphy has explained that the big clue has to do with the visual Top Hat motif that popped up on Freak Show’s coffee cups and diner menus. Murphy called the Top Hat “a big season five clue! It’s an arcane clue, but it’s very purposeful, and it illuminates something that you’ll be like, ‘Oh! You dirty b**!’”


(via)

Fans have theorized that this is a reference to 1953’s Operation Top Hat, where the United States Army Chemical Corps tested biological and chemical weapons, mustard gas, and nerve gas for decontamination. Physical deformities as a result of experimentation? A 1950s setting? Sounds like well-worn American Horror Story territory to me.


However, most fans have noticed that American Horror Story likes to alternate between the past (Books 2 and 4) and the present (Books 1 and 3). In other words, we’re due to return to the modern era next year. Landgraf hesitantly confirmed the modern setting by saying, “That’s my hope, yeah.”

So since Murphy prefers to flirt with history rather than recreate it, is it possible that Season 5 is an Operation Top Hat-esque project set in the modern day? In other words, is Ryan Murphy dipping his toes into political waters and taking on the horror of modern warfare? That would be a creative change.

Fingers crossed that’s the unusually large reinvention Landgraf is referencing and not, as I fear, the absence (for the first time in the show’s history) of Jessica Lange. The actress who originally said she was leaving the series after Season 4 has since changed her tune to “maybe.” Could a promise of radical reinvention be enough to convince her to stay? I hope so.

American Horror Story Recap: Neil Patrick Harris As He Came, He Sawed, and Even Conquered the Twins with His Butt; Two Hands Cut Off and Two Dead Cops


Here's the latest American Horror Story Recap. Using his devil's charm (as opposed to devilish charm?), some lipstick that looks good on him, a ventriloquist dummy that looks like Jamie Brewer, a great sawing hand, and a really great looking butt, Neil Patrick Harris makes his debut on American Horror Story: The Freak Show as the magician character, Chester. And faster than you can say 'hocus pocus' (as opposed to 'abracadabra'), expect some defrocking and even more gore, like chopped hands and dead cops.

As the episode, "Magical Thinking" started, there's a flashback scene that ends up with Jimmy the lobster boy getting both his hands chopped off. The scene that shows Jimmy waking up in the hospital tied to the bed and screaming as he sees his chopped of stumps is priceless. Then you'll get to see Jimmy's transfer back to jail before being intercepted by Amazon Eve and Dell. A rock is thrown at the cruiser's windshield, and the two escorting cops are beaten to death. Didn't we say more gore?

And then there's Desiree and Maggie revealing to Elsa that it was Dell who smothered Ma Petite - even showing the poor thing's body as proof - and this gets Dell a bullet in the brains courtesy of Fraulein Mars.

Enter war veteran, slash, former salesman, slash, wannabe magician, slash, handsome chameleon and charmer, Chester, in need of a job. Now, the Tattler sisters have already gotten rid of their diaries and have gone into telepathy with each other (Why didn't they think of this before?), and are long overdue for deflowering their virginity. Elsa was impressed with Chester's math skills, so he's hired as a bookkeeper and front act crowd warmer. The Tattler sisters are all but smitten.


Chester sweet talks Dot and Bette into becoming his assistants during his saw-the-lady-in-half illusion; afterwards, the Tattlers throw themselves at him. The sex scene is weird (except for Chester's beautiful butt) since he gets flashbacks of him watching his wife having sex with someone else, and needs the puppet dummy to perform, but perform he does and rises to the occasion in the deflowering.

The Best Little Known Apple iOS Apps

2014 has been yet another hugely successful year for Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL), and there is no doubt that one of the contributing factors to this triumph has been the ever popular and growing App Store. The Apple App Store is still the envy of many other companies in the technology industry, and it remains a rich source of both entertainment and practical applications for people all over the world.

There are so many apps in the Apple App Store that it is inconceivable that anyone could be aware of the vast majority of them. So here are some of the best free and pay apps in the Apple App Store of which you may not be aware.

Apple Apps



Iconical ($1.99)

If there is one criticism of the iPhone series it is that it provides a uniform experience compared to Android platforms. Iconical aims to address this by bringing the sort of customization associated with Android devices to the iPhone. With Iconical it is possible to create custom icons for all of your apps, leading to a truly individual home screen.



Dark Sky ($3.99)

Dark Sky is an extremely nifty weather application, which utilizes state-of-the-art weather forecasting technology in order to predict when precipitation will fall. Nothing particularly new in that, except that Dark Sky makes predictions down to the minute. Global maps have been updated in this latest version of the software.



Sleep Time ($1.99)

Everyone wants to get the best night’s sleep possible, and Sleep Time has been created with this noble goal in mind. Sleep Time utilizes the accelerometer in the iPhone in order to analyse sleep patterns over a period of time, and then adjusts its internal alarm accordingly to ensure that you are never roused from a deep sleep cycle.



Horizon ($0.99)

Horizon has been created in order to enable iPhone users to get the best out of the smartphone’s acclaimed video recording capabilities. As the name would suggest, this app enables you to shoot videos in horizontal format; clearly a great improvement over holding the phone vertically. You can use Horizon to shoot in three aspect ratios (1:1, 16:9 or 4:3), and filters have also been included in the package to enable customization.



Minecraft Pocket Edition ($6.99)

One of the world’s most famous video games is available on the iOS platform. Minecraft has seduced gamers all over the world, and at $6.99 it certainly represents good value for money.



Dayre (Free)

Tubmlr has become an incredibly popular platform, and this free application intends to imitate that for the iPhone. Dayre enables you to record snippets of your every day life via photos, video and sound clips. These can then be published to an online site, with a personal URL to enable friends to follow your handiwork.



WeChat (Free)

WeChat has made a pretty big name for itself already, and is probably the most notorious application included in this list. The free WeChat app offers a sleek and intuitive platform for sending texts, making video and voice calls, leaving voice messages, and conducting group chats.

There are a multitude of other options built into this package, including a walkie-talkie feature that lets you tap to talk with up to forty friends. It is pretty much a no-brainer as a download given its free status.



Venmo (Free)

Venmo is a transaction system which is aimed at small transactions between friends in particular. Venmo enables you to charge your peers and receive payments, enabling the splitting of a bill at a restaurant, for example, to be handled smoothly and seamlessly. Not only is this a free application, but it will also connect with your bank accounts for no additional charge.



Wikitude (Free)

Augmented reality has been a buzz term over the last few years, and Wikitude attempts to tap into this trendy technology. Wikitude attempts to enhance your social life by enabling you to pull up information on bars, restaurants and landmarks in your immediate surroundings. This is achieved by geolocation based on information fed to the app by your camera. Games are also included in the package, just in case you get bored of seeking somewhere to eat.



Doorsteps Swipe (Free)

This application has been dubbed the Tinder for real estate, and is extremely valuable for anyone seeking a new place to live. Houses, apartments and rooms are presented within the app as a deck of cards, with simple left or right swiping carried out in order to save more pass on the opportunities offered.

Doorsteps Swipe also catalogs your behaviour using the application, in order to inform you of the sort of houses that you have a tendency to select. Various search parameters are also available, and overall the application does an excellent job of informing users regarding the real estate market.

'Arrow' season 3 episode 10 spoilers: Will Oliver die in new episodes?



In "Arrow's" last episode, fans cringed when they saw their beloved superhero fall off a cliff. Did Oliver Queen finally meet his demise? Is Oli really gone? That's highly doubtful, given that he is the central character of the show. So, what's going to happen then? 

The sneak peek already gave a tease as to how Oliver will return to Starling City. But of course, the promo didn't give all the details away. Everyone will have to wait for "Arrow" to return for its mid-season premiere in January to find out what really happens. Thus, for now, speculations should do. 

One of the things that make "Arrow" season 3 episode 10 special is that it is co-written by Marc Guggenheim, one of the showrunners. Via Twitter, he teased followers back in October with a photo that showing his name written as a co-writer on the script for "Left Behind." And fans of the show would know that when Guggenheim writes an episode, it's going to be crazy good. 

"Left Behind" will pick up right where episode 9 left off — Oli on a cliff badly injured after his fight with Ra's al Ghul. While everyone knows that Oli won't die, the real question is, who will help him or save him? Some speculate that it will be Ra's himself, while others think that it would be Maseo Yamashiro a.k.a. Sarab that will bring Oli to the Lazarus Pit. 

Meanwhile, over at Starling City, chaos gets worse due to Arrow's absence. Roy Harper a.k.a. The Arsenal will have to step up and be the hero of the city for the meantime. In fact, Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly that The Arsenal will play a major role in episodes 10, 11 and 12. Does this mean it will take three episodes before Oli returns? 

Guggenheim also shared that Thea Queen and Felicity Smoak will have more screentime next year when the show returns. 

"They'll be sharing quite a bit of screen time in 2015, and it's very interesting," he told TV Line.

"Arrow" season 3B will air starting Jan. 21, 2015 on The CW.

The Big Bang Theory Season 8: Episode 12 synopsis teases Leonard and Penny moving in together; What to expect when the series returns


The Big Bang Theory is on a holiday hiatus and will return with all new episodes on January 8, 2015.

The twelfth episode is titled, The Space Probe Disintegration, where Sheldon and Leonard will have a heart-to-heart conversation.

According to the official synopsis, Amy and Penny take Leonard and Sheldon shopping while Raj worries about his contribution to the operation of a space probe.


According to spoilers, while playing a board game, the girls want them to agree to do something they like, instead of compromising. After they turned down horseback riding and the ice skating idea, the boys decide to take them out shopping, which is Penny's favourite past-time.

At Howard and Bernadette's apartment, Raj is worried about the Horizon spacecraft which has landed. He is worried if the experiment he designed will work.

The report also states that Sheldon and Leonard are unhappy sitting outside the dressing room as they have no cell phone service in the store, and they start wondering about women's obsession with shopping.

The genius duo start to play an invisible board game and end up talking about how much they compromise for each other.

They also talk about how Leonard hasn't moved in with Penny because the last time he mentioned it, Sheldon ran away, and how he can't think of a life without his best friend in it.


Going by reports, they both start crying and Sheldon tells him that he should move out if he really wants to. They later agree that Leonard will do it in stages.

The episode ends with Leonard and Penny celebrating their new life together in Penny's apartment. Sheldon sleeping on the couch calls out for them to keep the noise down.

Arrow's Canary Trilogy Will Have "A Payoff" At the End


Though Arrow's upcoming episode, "Canaries," won't air until February 2015, Showrunner Marc Guggenheim is already hyping it as a can’t-miss episode.

"Canaries" will turn the clock back to Season Three’s premiere, according to Guggenheim, and will feature the return of Caity Lotz as Canary and Peter Stormare as Count Vertigo. As fans might recall, The Count was that episode’s main villain, and almost succeeded in killing a Vertigo-drugged Arrow before Canary saved the Emerald Archer at the last second. It was only a few moments after that confrontation that Oliver Queen’s sister, Thea, killed Laurel.

However, those final scenes may have contained more than what met the eye, Guggenheim explained to TVLine. When "Canaries" revisits those moments, many aspects of Canary’s saga throughout Arrow, and more, will be brought “full circle.”

“It’s an episode where a lot of things that we’ve been doing and setting up during the season really sort of come together,” he said. “It’s not a ‘climactic’ kind of episode, but there’s a feeling of a big payoff by the end of it.”

Big payoff, eh? Perhaps this will be the episode, and not "The Return," where Oliver Queen makes his triumphant return to Starling City as Arrow. Based on Guggenheim’s comments, it sound like Arrow could return in “Canaries’” final scene, ending the episode on a cliffhanger. Then, “The Return,” which is the season’s following episode, would delve deeper into how Oliver Queen cheated death.

Either way, we’ll know more for certain when Arrow returns to the CW on January 21, 2015, at 8:00 p.m.

American Horror Story: Freak Show Sees Dandy Go on a Rampage!




American Horror Story: Freak Show is almost finished. There is only two episodes left in this series, and many people are getting excited about what will happen in the upcoming 10th episode. The ninth episode of Freak Show saw the aftermath of Dandy killing his mother. He goes to see Esmerelda, and Maggie tells Dandy not to worry about his future.

She says that there may be some bumps in the road, but added that he will get around them easily. Dandy runs into Jimmy after leaving the fortune teller, and swears to have vengeance on Jimmy because Jimmy took the twins away from him. The twins are brought to the farmhouse and the Doctor was going to perform surgery on them, but the sisters decide not to get the surgery after talking about it some more.

Dell tries to hang himself because he is guilty about his sexuality and killing Ma Petite, but Desiree saves him. Jimmy is supposed to perform at a Tupperware party for housewives, but is too drunk and leaves the party. Dandy shows up at the same party, and kills all of the housewives, leaving them to float in a pool. Regina confronts Dandy, and Dandy openly admits that he’s been murdering a lot of people, so Regina goes to get Detective Colquitt. Dandy says that he’ll pay the detective a million dollars if he shoots Regina, so he does. The episode ends with Detective Colquitt arresting Jimmy for murdering the women at the Tupperware party.

It seems like Dandy got the last laugh so far. There has also been a short interview on why Naomi Grossman was allowed to return as Pepper for the second season in a row. American Horror Story is an anthology show that uses many of the same actors, but gives them different roles as new characters each season. Grossman is the only actor on the show who has played the same character twice in the four seasons that the show has been on the air.

Grossman thought that Pepper’s popularity was one of the main reasons that they brought her back for another season. There have been some spoilers released regarding the 10th episode of the season. We know there will be more deaths in the freak show, and another returning character besides Pepper may make an appearance. The episode is supposed to tie season four of the show back to season two.

TAYLOR SWIFT IS WOMAN OF THE YEAR

Singer wins the award for the second time


Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift topped off an amazing 2014 on Friday by picking up Billboard's coveted Woman of the Year award for the second time.

The honour came as the Blank Space singer was preparing to celebrate her 25th birthday on Saturday.

She told the audience at the lunchtime gala, "Being named Billboard Woman of the Year for a second time is this amazing early birthday present. I turn 25 at midnight tonight, and I fully intend to celebrate like it's 1989 (the title of her hit new album and the year of her birth)."

She also reiterated her stand on streaming music sites after pulling her back catalogue from Spotify.com last month, adding, "I've taken this year to stand up for my value as a songwriter, as a businesswoman and a content creator. I'm very well aware the music industry is changing, and it will continue to change. I'm open to that change and progress. I'm not open to the financial model that is currently in place.

"I really believe that we in the music industry can work together to bond technology with integrity. And I think we can teach a younger generation about an investment in music, not just the ephemeral consumption of it. I think that there has to be a way for streaming or any future way we access music to fairly compensate the writers.

"Events like this, where we have the most powerful people in music all gathered in one room, events like this give me hope that the right conversations will start to take place, and I invite you all to join in the conversation."

Swift had a very special guest introduce her at the luncheon, superfan Gena Camerlengo, whose bridal shower the singer attended earlier this year, posting video of the party online.

Camerlengo said, "I've been fortunate to share in her transformation. Her ability to write and perform is incredible, but it's her impact beyond music where she really shines... I found Taylor because of her music, but I stayed because of her character."

And there was another very special moment for Swift when Women in Music 2014 Icon of the Year honouree Aretha Franklin sang Happy Birthday to the Love Story hitmaker.

Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX and Ariana Grande were also honoured at the gala.
