“The sense of “I” & the illusion of its separateness from the rest of the universe is so pervasive & so deeply rooted in the infrastructure of our language, our institutions, & our cultural conventions that we find ourselves unable to “experience selfhood except as something superficial in the scheme of the universe.” The antidote lies in recognizing not merely that we belong to & with the rest of universe, but that there is no “rest” in the first place — we are the universe.” Alan Watts
THANK YOU AHS, for another wicked episode! This one should’ve been called Turnt, Turnt & Twirled… ala Misty Days. We have alliances forming, the devil/gatekeeper going bump in the night & Marie’s moppin’ babies! Fiona smacks the shit out of Cordelia, Misty does a death drop when she sees Stevie who gives an entire performance of “Rhiannon” (which casted a spell on all the witches) & we were twiiiirrrrrrrlllllled into the Crowning (Shawing) of the new White Witch Supreme. I love that she’s a white witch & I also love that Stevie is playing herself. The other girls can’t take it & are all competing. Broomstick to ATL anyone? Rat traps & mojito mixers, mayhem, sperm incense, voodoo dolls & Papa Legba, oh my! Misty gets knocked at the grave yard… she kinda was a stupid b!tch to let that happen & Madison is a total c u next Tuesday! WORK IT OUT NAN, SHE LOVES HER SOME LUKE… YOU GET REVENGE FOR YO MAN GIRL! Lol And those celestial tones, haha I love me some Myrtle & how she sounds like her throat got burned in the fire. She’s always serving sophisticated shade. Don’t be a h8ter dear… now back up, carry on, bottle some salad dressing & STFU! Lmao I mean what are your options when your Mother is Hillary Clinton? Cordelia lost it & Myrtle went back to her beats. I died! It was like a comic sketch. Fiona’s got the good stuff for Papa but gets no eternal deal since she’s a soulless witch, b!tch just can’t get a break! Lol Nan is feeling her oats & deemed dangerous so they drown her & give her to Papa. I wonder if she’ll be back or if she just went out with a big bang cause her character was totally on fire. We end with another performance from Stevie of “Has Anybody Ever Written Anything For You”, with Fiona reflecting with her messy self again. Coming up it appears that all the ho’s in this house are losing it & going after each other. They best get it together before the boys from ATL come back. And that’s a wrap! Or, a shawl.
The New Year certainly started off like a roller coaster! I got back from my trip & was on such a high. Then I landed, I checked my email & read that my co-worker’s cousin died in a nasty car accident. Her mom (coworkers aunt) just passed away from cancer 2 mos ago, now this!? I was feeling her pain on the plane. The ride home was a bag of mixed emotions. I needed some welcome home luvin’ & Andre was sick but of course that didn’t stop me. We quietly spent New Year’s at home & today I woke up sick for work feeling like crap! (womp womp) My car is acting up, there’s no AC in the office & my co worker is pouring all this emotion on me. It’s only Jan 2nd. Calgon take me awaaaaaaayyyy! I sat back with my cup of green tea that says “Come sit with me & let us talk about happy things” & I thought how most of this will pass, heal with time or could be fixed & how I should be grateful for all I do have & for being present & back in FL where it’s warm. So I’ll ride the coaster with its twists & turns & try to smile, even if I have snot comin’ out my nose. At least it’s THU & not MON. Now can someone please fast forward to the 8th when I’ll be better & AHS comes back, I’m having withdrawals.
AHS was all that & a bag of monkshood melons last night! We got a bit of history into Hank as a witch hunter. Fiona wants to talk terms & warns Marie at her salon that he’s coming but she laughs in her face & sends her away, while LaLaurie with her head literally in a box is still putting in her 2 cents. We get a look into The Initiative & learn there are more where Hank came from & his dad is the CEO. Myrtle serves up some of the fiercest human statue melon balls with power, compassion & uniqueness. Cecily’s fashion faux pas give her nightmares (haha) & she scoops out a pair of eyes for Cordelia, who can now see but no longer has the gift of deeper insight. Miss Myrtle is alive & well, she learned a few secrets in the flames, but Fiona still threatens to exile her to Paramus NJ, toxic waste & strip malls! LMAO. Fifi’s shady smile & should shrug is everything! Back at the hospital Madison is grossed out by sick ppl & Nan makes a connection with Luke & reads Joan directly from his mind. She’s worse than all the witches, a different kind of evil that hides behind religion. To think she was almost dead & now she finished off her son. You know she’s gonna pay! Poor Luke, he’s been through all that shit & back (no pun intended) Will he be resurrected too? Cause you know nobody dies on this show. And WTF happened to that dog that made Kyle normal? Queenie brings in fast food & Lala looking all hungry but she reminds her, “Bitch, you ain’t got no stomach!” LOL She proceeds to force her to watch old classic movies.. Mandingo, Color Purple (my favorite), Baps (LOL) & Roots, but she closed her eyes so she plays her some civil rights news & music. By the time she came around & changed with a tear, it was too late. Marie did some voodoo on Hank, who came back to wipe out the entire salon while “Freedom Over Me” played in the background. Queenie saves Marie & she’s history, what a precious moment. Marie showed her first vulnerable moment with taht shotgun in her face. She’s left with nothing so she appears on Fiona’s doorstep where they can now join forces. It’s funny how everyone comes together in times of need. Everyone seems to have the 2 sided nature of “good & evil” in this show, it’s pretty amazing the duality that lives in each character & how they can portray both sides of extreme witch bitch & basic empathy towards humanity. This episode was one of the most emotional as well, the music, the message, the scenery, the connections, the death & coming around of characters… I got a little teary eyed, a first for AHS. It was another legendary episode to go down in the books. “The Magical Death of Stevie Nicks” (& her premiere) is up next on JAN 8, ugh… talk about a long wait! – CJ
Previously on American Horror Story… It’s 1833 & Lala’s serving Eyeball Stew & Surprise Intestines in her Chamber of Horrid Horrors, keeping her daughters in cages with shitty promises for Christmas. Cordelia loses her sight & gains another & Fifi goes on a twisted mission for drugs in the hospital. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the zombies are running amok. Fifi comes across a girl at the Asylum that lost her baby, telling her to talk to it, to tell her how beautiful she is & that she loves her more than the whole world. Poor girl was looking at her like she was one crazy witch! Then, she brings the baby back to the life. It was a moment of wanting to give back, seeing how much of a bad mother she’s been, training the girl in thought to be more loving. That scene deep & twisted to a baby T! Nan & neighbor are now stuck in the car… Nan girl you know you can’t do nothing, trying to save that boy, maybe she’ll get some, you know Nan. Lol I loved how Spalding gagged when they said, “Take them to your room”, waving back & forth ‘oh hell no no no’. Lala goes for ice & sees Borquita (Borquita, is that you?) feeling all bad crying… there’s just no way you can have pity on her black heart, as much as she’s trying to repent. Then it’s Borquita vs. Precious – Round 1 until Lala jumps in! Oh wait… is that Zoe ala Army of Darkness? OMG, she finally woke up & decided to join the party, increasing her powers. Be in your nature girl, I love a witch that knows how to fight! Marie falls on her ass at the salon & realizes “there’s some real power up in that house”. Fifi turns the crafty tables on Myrtle, who tried to warn them all but they agreed to “Burn The Witch” & then Queenie felt bad for frying that chicken on a stick, blinded as the next Supreme. And looks like Misty could use a meal, wandering around aimlessly in the woods, ain’t she hungry? Spalding is a mess… spraying all that Lysol, that stuff will kill you. Myrtle’s revived & I have a feeling she’s gonna return with a vengeance, giving you Darth Vader down! Oh what a world, what a world… tonight comes the witch hunter & it sure ain’t Dorothy! Is it 10pm yet?
Late AHS Update – Misty is back with her Stevie Nicks witchypoo self, the free spirited enchantress who looks like she just walks everywhere with her hands floating in the air listening to imaginary music! Lol We got a throwback to Queenie’s past at Chubbie’s Fried Chicken… she grew up on Charmed & Sabrina the Teenage Cracker (trending on Twitter – never watched that one). Ryan Murphy is really pushing it with the fat girl image; I think he’s more stuck on Precious than we are. Fiona reminds us that she’s in charge everywhere & she turnt that scene with those fried chicken legs. We learn of LaLaurie’s past & her hung family & while at the salon Marie schools Fiona on the practice & its true origins & how the white girls mopped it but Fiona reminds her that they also perfected it… and then sets her wigs on fire! Noooo, not the weaves! Lol Nan sets LaLaurie free & she ends up knocking out Queenie thinking she was a slave. Lol They really made her ignorant & her reactions alone to things are already classic. We have to remember that she’s not a witch, she’s just a crazy, evil bitch gagging with everything going on. Cordelia had a sexy snake sex scene & while rescuing Kyle, our modern day Frankenstein (not sure how cute he’ll be with all his “Boy Parts”), Misty just pops up in the car. They heal him in a cabin with Spanish moss & alligator dung & Misty reminds us that Mother Nature has a healing answer for everything. Believe that! The Minotaur is back & we have another ending with FiLa, they’re turning out to be quite the pair. Did LaLa have an emotional moment? As if! Of course still shady as hell… “I loved my girls in my own way, even the ugly one; she had the face of a damn hippo, but I loved her just the same.” Really Lala? Lol I love that there is just as much modern day horror & history as there is comedy. Tonight is Episode 3, “The Replacements” & I hope to see some zombies, unless they save it for next week, in time for Halloween. Either way I’ll be happy!
And we also learned that Jessica Lange said she would be retiring after another season (4)so we still have time to enjoy her & I’m sure she’s gonna go out with a bang!
I hope by now everyone has caught up on American Horror Story, Coven! That crazy Kathy Bates as Madame LaLaurie, she sure knows how to play insane, keeping & torturing all those slaves while brushing her face with blood to make it tight as a drum & looking to create her first half man/half bull Minotaur. It swings from New Orleans 1830s back into today, merging the past & present towards the end. Zoe kills any guys she sleeps with, talk about death snatch! I’m enjoying Emma as torn celeb & telekinetic, sloppy, little witch bitch Madison. Human voodoo doll Queenie is a great mix but why they had to portray her as Precious eating a big ol drumstick? LOL We have the lil clairvoyant Nan, the most powerful of them all as per Fiona, the head witch at Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies. Cordelia Foxx is Fiona’s daughter who leads the group & they can’t stand each other. Fiona literally sucked the life out of her doctor in attempts to make her younger, all while getting high as a kite! Meanwhile, Madison gets drugged & raped by 3 guys & we get introduced to Kyle who didn’t make it off that tossed bus alive… but he’ll be back as well as Misty who has the power of resurrection. Would anyone like a reviving pancreas beverage? Angela as Marie is a natural fix & has a long standing feud with LaLaurie who was poisoned for killing her man & then trapped in the ground… under the bricks. Fiona had her dug out after over 150 years & took her out for a drink… & did you catch how she looked at her how like “Girl, you need a new outfit!” Lol It was off to a great start, things are already getting interesting & it’s just the beginning but want more! Patience… patience. They showed us a bit of what’s to come & I’m sure there’s a lot more where that came from. Ahhh welcome back AHS!
