“You’re stuck on the rosy notion that the world operates on goodness. Decency. Truth is, all goodness guarantees ya is an early grave. But the biggest joke of all, that’ll sink ya, is hope. Hope that the world will right itself. And that the just will be rewarded and the wicked punished. I don’t want you to buy into that horseshit or you’re dead in the water. The only way to survive in this disgusting and God forsaken world is to take control. Ain’t nobody gonna take care of our people but us. ” -Ethel Darling
The quote above, unfortunately, seems to be true in this world today just as it was back then. Kathy Bates and the writers went all out this episode. Titled Test of Strength, AHS brought some great acting, great writing and great plot twists and was a freakishly huge improvement from last week’s dud.
Oh and can’t forget that Evan Peters brought Kurt Cobain back from the dead with a great cover of Come As You Are, which I encourage everyone to check out below. Pure awesomeness!
Now let’s get into the beefcakes and potatoes…
“Fate. Destiny. Luck. The presence of men. People pass the time, enjoying the choices life provides. Coffee or tea. Right or left. As if it matters. We’re all just spinning on the wheel.” -Elsa Mars
Things got a little interesting and a little less interesting last night on American Horror Story. Bullseye brought us more tragedy but it was also clearly a filler episode. Elsa Mars and Dandy stole the show yet again. I mean, the opening quote was absolutely brilliant and Dandy even got to take a peek Under the Dome!
Finn Wittrock and Jessica Lange continue their dominating performances and we actually got to see some interactions between Dandy, Bette and Dot. And thank GOD Ma Petite is okay :) PHEW! Sadly though, ever since they killed off Twisty, the episodes got a lil’ more boring. BRING BACK THE CLOWN!
Ah and of course, had to add a little music from the episode, just push play to hear September Song by Walter Huston, a 1938 classic!
“I would never participate in what I consider to be the death of art and civilization” -Elsa Mars
What in the fuck show. Seriously. No more gruesome murder scenes please. I will clearly be having nightmares tonight after this. But hey, I guess we all knew what we were getting into. This is AHS after all. I will say this though, there are mad rumors about a top hat on a mug that is supposedly a major clue for next season. Me thinks this can only mean one thing: MAGIC! Harry Houdini, anyone? I have this strange feeling magicians will be taking center stage next season which would be pretty damn SICK!
Back to last night’s episode, titled Pink Cupcakes, we delve more into the mind of a psycho killer, Elsa gets boo’d off stage and Dot and Bette died…in a dream sequence, lol. Like they’d kill off Sarah Paulson that early, nice try show!
Sorry for the delay, it has been a crazy week for me, I’m living out of my suitcase in a travelling freak show these days and man, it’s fun! :) So without further adieu, enjoy the review!
“I had an idea. I would turn the garbage…into Gold. Like Rumpelstiltskin” -Twisty the Clown
Well folks, that was something else. We just witnessed one of the BEST episodes of American Horror Story I have ever seen. How does this show make you feel sorry for a crazy, psychotic murdering clown with no mouth, I will never know. But they did it. Look no further than Twitter last night as we all watched in disbelief:

American Horror Story breaking my heart again #TwistyTheClown

So in less than an hour we went from being absolutely terrified of Twisty to feeling sorry for him! Collective GROUP HUG everyone!
Oh, and if you have been hiding out in Twisty’s neck of the woods this whole time, I should also mention that THESE TWO ARE JOINING THE FREAK SHOW! Click the image if you want to read more.
“It’s your song, Elsa, and it’s the most heartbreaking music I’ve ever heard. They’re cheering now, the applause sounds like thunder” -Maggie Esmeralda
Last night’s episode of American Horror Story, simply titled Edward Mordrake Pt. 1, kicked off our annual two-parter episode last night and it didn’t disappoint. That said, did anyone else get the sense that the show took a step back to set up some characters and stories? I wanted more Twisty!!! Still though, a filler episode of AHS is still way better than mostly everything on television.
We had three more characters enter the mix this week with Maggie Esmeralda (played by Emma Roberts), Stanley (played by Denis O’Hare) and, of course, the two-faced man Edward Mordrake who is based on a real person (and he’s played by Wes Bentley).
Also, more of these two:
Elsa Mars: “So what does that make you?” Dell Toledo: “The Happiest Man on Earth.”
Holy crap AHS! Not to be outdone by last week’s premiere, American Horror Story’s Freak Show decided to dive head first into Twisty’s sick mind. Amazon Eve’s look says it all. I need a cigarette too. Like MEOW! Plus we got the brand new addition of two awesome new characters, those being Dell Toledo (played by Michael Chiklis) and my already personal fave Desiree Dupree (played by the Voodoo Queen herself, Angela Bassett). Shall we all let out a collective SHITTTTTTTTTTTTT! Here she is in all her hermaphrodite(y) glory:
How do you like dem
apples melons? Three boobs, proper girl parts and a ding-a-ling!!! I mean can this show get any better??? I think not. For your listening pleasure, I’ve included one of my personal favorite bands Silverchair and, even though it wasn’t in the episode, it only seemed appropriate. So I dedicate this to Tri-Boob and the rest of you freaks…body and soul ;) Enjoy the jam and the review and don’t forget the music section for some AMAZEBALLS!
“Life…is to be lived” -Elsa Mars
IT”S BACK! And better then FREAKING ever. From Twisty the clown, to Pepper’s return, to the World’s Smallest (and cutest) woman…this cast of characters is about to change the game. Oh, and BETTE & DOT! The Tattler Sisters are the headline in the Freak Show and they are the headline period. Just to put it all in perspective, two completely different characters on one body and they do this:
Between The Leftovers and the Guilty Remnant and now a two-headed Sarah Paulson, not to mention Jessica Lange in Coven during her Witch burning days….smoking is officially COOL again. The premiere got us started off nicely and we haven’t even seen Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Emma Roberts and Denis O’Hare yet but it was a PERFECT introduction to the Freak Show and to most of the characters.
I get the feeling some of the performers are about to be murdered by a clown. And I didn’t sleep much last night because Twisty is fucking TERRIFYING and possibly living in my closet :( Watching with the lights ON from meow on, but you can read this review with the lights out! Make sure to check out the Music section towards the bottom of the post, as I posted all the good tunes from the Premiere! Just another element that makes this show SO GOOD! And for further listening enjoyment, Missy Elliott’s Get Ur Freak On is only a click away. Clearly an appropriate song choice. Enjoy, fellow freaks.
Freaks They Are Not…American Horror Story Does Some Amazing Interviews With These Soon-To-Be STARS (UPDATED)
“People stare at something they don’t understand. Because we’re different doesn’t mean we’re entirely different, we’re just like you, we just come in different forms” -Rose Siggins
First, a little Live because this was the first song that came to my mind when AHS announced it was going to the Freak Show. But, I must say, none of these people are actually freaks! They are simply AMAZEBALLS!
Ryan Murphy…you are a GENIUS. Not only have you put together one of the BEST shows of all time, but you now have made seemingly normal people (that unfortunately are not seen that way by the majority of the public) into celebrities. I am thrilled that these individuals have been given this opportunity to tell their story because I have simply been BLOWN AWAY! These people have been through it all and we need to collectively shut our mouths up with all of our 1st world and white girl problems! These guys are the epitome of positivity and awesomeness and I believe they have no idea…YET…that they are about to be ridiculously famous.
Enjoy…interviews from some of the new cast for this season of AHS: Freak Show…a MUST-SEE!

The premiere of American Horror Story: Freakshow begins tonight at 10PM/EST on FX. Make sure you have a fresh stash of Cotton Candy and Candy Apples for the 90-minute premiere tonight. Tonight we all get murdered by Twisty the Clown. Review, with screencaps, up tomorrow. Now, go Get Your FREAK On!
As you all know, I like to incorporate music into my blog posts as much as possible. With the upcoming premiere of American Horror Story only 2 days away (nearly pee’d my pants in excitement just typing that), there is going to be a whole lot more music on the way (Melanie Martinez’s Carousel comes to mind). First, though, I had to write a post about Spotify because this company has literally changed the game!
Now, if you’re not already familiar with Spotify, then you need to get your butt over to their website immediately and download the app @ www.spotify.com. I can assure you it will change your life. Spotify offers an insane amount of tracks. In fact, just to give you an example, I decided to look up the band Live, one of my favorite bands from the ’90′s. BAM…Spotify had every album. I was blown away. Oh, and did I also mention that it’s FREE! Who doesn’t like free!!!!?????
Even better, the sharing feature! My god, I LOVE IT! If you’re playing a track that you want to share with the world, all you have to do is click Share and you can even pick which social media accounts to share on (Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, and hopefully more to come).
So, what are you waiting for? If you’re like me, then music probably makes you lose control (shout out to Missy Elliot). And if that is the case, then you NEED Spotify.
Now, go check out my new favorite song that I found on Spotify…it’s absolutely beautiful!!! The band is Fences, Macklemore makes an appearance and the lyrics are gold. Enjoy and I apologize in advance if you end up playing this 20X in a row.
No words can describe this horror so click play and make sure the lights are on:
American Horror Story: Freakshow premieres on FX next Wednesday, October 8th at 10PM EST!
