No Parole For John Lennon’s Killer

It is the tenth time the killer of John Lennon will be denied parole. His ‘debt’ has not been paid in full. After hearing his plea for a parole consideration, the board concluded and was quoted to have stated that releasing Mark David Chapman “would be incompatible with the welfare and safety of the society and would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime as to undermine respect for the law.”

Mark Chapman had indeed neglected the legal consequences by willfully pulling the trigger of the gun that killed John Lennon. Now 63 years old, he is still paying for the crime he committed, the public has commended the board for rejecting his application for parole while other groups have criticized the parole rejection as unfair.

Chapman was convicted for the murder of John Lennon and was given a life sentence. He has been incarcerated at the Wende Correctional Facility in western New York. John would have been 78 years this year if not for the unfortunate event that led to his untimely death.

In its denial decision, the parole board stated that Chapman has consciously planned and executed the murder of the famous John Lennon because he wanted to gain a ruthless reputation. The board also noted that he had consciously chosen to assassinate a popular figure without regard to the pain and anguish his family and fans from all over the world would suffer.

The parole board is of the opinion that setting Chapman free would only send a message that such as act could be condoned or pardoned over time and in the process undermine the seriousness of such crimes.

The next parole hearing for Chapman is scheduled for August 2020. However, the public outcry for him to remain behind bars cannot be overlooked. Over the years, the impact of the loss and suffering Chapman caused millions of fans all over the world remains ‘fresh in their memories. Chapman confirms that he still receives letters from anonymous fans of John Lennon condemning his act many years ago and he wishes he had made different choices at that time. However, the deed was done, and now, it is so difficult to forget.

The First AHS: Apocalypse Teaser Will Give You Nightmares

American Horror Story: Apocalypse’s first teaser is finally here and, of course, it’s really creepy. If you have a problem with imagery of blood,  fetuses, skulls, scorpions, bugs…and basically everything associated with horror, then you may want to go watch something else.

There’s no shot of any specific cast member but the season’s theme, the end of the world, you know, the apocalypse, is front and center.

Executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall teased a few more details at the TCA press tour last Friday (via Variety), revealing that the eighth season “begins with the end of the world and then our world begins.” So Apocalypse is essentially a Ryan Murphy fantasy of what happens after doomsday, and as Sarah Paulson confirmed, that subtitle reflects “the apocalypse in the truest sense of the word.”

The season will be a crossover between Season 1′ Murder House and Season 3′ Coven. In the new season, Paulson’s Cordelia will still be the Supreme, as she was at the end of Season 3, but she teased that it won’t last for long. She’ll also be playing Billie Dead Howard from Murder House (and Roanoke), in addition to a mystery third character.

The most exciting news for fans is that Jessica Lange will finally return to AHS after leaving the show following Season 4’s Freak Show. She’ll reprise her Constance Langdon from Murder House, likely alongside her now-grown grandson Michael, aka the Antichrist, to be played by Cody Fern. AHS: Apocalypse premieres on FX on September 12.

Watch: Paul McCartney Crosses Abbey Road Again

There are a few photos in history that are set inside our collective memory, one of those photos is the iconic photo of the  The Beatles’ showing the quartet crossing Abbey Road. The Photo became the album’s cover and was taken just over a month before the LP’s release. The iconic album, Abbey Road, will turn 49 years old on Sept. 26.

This week Paul McCartney shared to his social media a video of himself crossing the street in the same demeanor to the applause of an onlooking crowd. He was on his way to the Abbey Road Studios for a surprise performance in support of his upcoming solo album, Egypt Station, which is due out on Sept. 7. Mary, Paul’s daughter, filmed the clip. You can watch it below.

The original Abbey Road photograph was taken on Aug. 8, 1969 by Iain Macmillan. In response to its legacy, Abbey Road Studios has launched a live stream that has continuously filmed the street since 2011.

Just like other Beatles albums Abbey Road was a monstrous success, selling over 4 million copies within the first two months of its release. It spent 12 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart. Since then it became a must own classic as of 2011, it had sold over 31 million copies worldwide.

Jaguar Goes Wild in Zoo Escape

As one of the most fearsome animals in the jungle, the jaguar is not a creature to be trifled with. They are rapid, vicious and very much trained killers. For that reason, the idea of keeping one in a zoo or any kind of enclosure feels needless and dangerous. Something so majestic should not be kept in such environments for humans to ogle and point at. Especially when, as this story shows, the chances of escape aren’t quite as ridiculous as they first sound.

Take the story of the jaguar that escaped from Audubon Zoo in New Orleans. The Jaguar got out and managed to attack and kill six animals whilst harming another three. The animal in question is Valerio, the 3-year-old Jaguar. He killed a group of alpacas, an emu and also a fox. While no humans were injured, it’s hardly a stretch to say that they could have been. Perhaps keeping killing machines that can move at breakneck speeds might not be a good idea?

It managed to also injure another alpaca and a pair of foxes. Escaping from his enclosure at about 7:20 AM local time, he went on a rampage for around an hour before being sedated and taken back ‘home’ to his habitat in the zoo.

The zoo itself released a heartfelt statement, saying: “The team responded immediately to the incident. Veterinarians had to prepare tranquilizers and position themselves to get a good line of sight. Once darted, the jaguar was sedated within minutes. We are still investigating how this happened. From our initial inspection, it appears the roof of the habitat was compromised. We are still investigating, and no animals will be housed in this enclosure until the investigation and repairs are completed. The safety of our guests, staff, volunteers, and animals is our number one priority. We are taking this incident very seriously and working to investigate what happened to prevent a similar occurrence in the future. We perform drills annually and have protocols for this exact situation to ensure that emergencies of this kind are resolved as safely and quickly as possible.”

A ‘difficult day’

Marking it as a ‘difficult day’ for the animal care team, having seen some of their beloved creatures die, the zoo’s Vice President, Joel Hamilton, said that there was no plans to put down the jaguar because it’s “what jaguars do”, saying: “Our staff truly care about these animals, not just care for them. We have grief counselors coming in to talk to staff to help them get through this.”

The zoo was forced to be closed for Saturday due to the event but opened again at 10 AM on the Sunday. The zoo itself is a tremendous zoo and does a lot of good work to help care for the animals within. However, such a powerful animal, whilst amazing to see up-close and personal, can definitely be better understood if we take the time to appreciate the kind of habitat they can live in comfortably.

YouTubers Fly Around New York on Star Wars Speeder Bikes

Every Halloween, you can always find people who take cosplay to a whole new level. Some people go nuts for this kind of stuff, and realy go that extra mile to make a mark. Most of the time, the best ones go viral very quickly thanks to good old social media. Well, this one was fantastic – a true testament to the creativity and charm of Halloween.

Getting Creative

YouTubers Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens are creative individuals anyway, and they tend to be quite cooky and creative on their channels as it is. So, they decided to start going a little crazier with each year, following on from the stupendous 2015 Magic Carpet that they pulled off. They’ve done a few crazy things so far, but this year they decided to jump in on the upcoming hype for the new Star Wars and invoke an old classic; a speeder bike.

They built a pair of absolutely bad-ass speeder bikes based on Return of the Jedi, and powered around the streets of New York. The bikes are a pair of Super 73 electric motorbikes, and they spent the best part of three weeks fitting them up. Alongside fiberglass shelling to make the look, they also added all sorts of awesome spoilers to really make them look the part.

Jesse rode with a friend, Carmella Rose, and they dressed as the classic Luke and Leia style from the Endor scenes of ROTJ, and it was an absolutely fantastic costume to pull off. They look great as they plow through the streets on a fantastic take on one of the best vehicles in movie history.

Meanwhile, Casey went for the classic Stormtrooper outfit and “chased” them through the streets of New York.

Going the Extra Mile

Thankfully, no “real” Stormtrooper showed up, and the police never had any issue with their awesome little stunt. Take a look for yourself and see the benefits of people getting creative at Halloween?

It’s a massive amount of work, obviously, but the end product is absolutely sensational. The amount of effort that has gone into the making can be seen, too and it’s a damn fine watch. As you can see, these are people more than happy to go that extra mile to build a fantastic set-piece.

While some people are happy to go as a whoopee cushion for Halloween, this trio have shown how us it could – and should – be done.
