Russell Albion "Russ" Meyer

Russell Albion "Russ" Meyer (March 21, 1922 – September 18, 2004) was an American film director, producer, screenwriter, cinematographer, film editor, actor and photographer. Meyer is known primarily for writing and directing a series of successful low-budget sexploitation films that featured campy humor, sly satire and large-breasted women, such as Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!.

When he was fourteen years old, his mother pawned her wedding ring in order to buy him an 8mm film camera. He made a number of amateur films at the age of 15, and served during World War II as a U.S. Army combat cameraman for the 166th Signal Photo Company. Even then he already demonstrated a corny directing style and included nudity, like in scenes of naked GIs bathing in the Rhine in March 1945. In the Army, Meyer forged his strongest friendships, and he would later ask many of his fellow combat cameramen to work on his films. Much of Meyer's work during World War II can be seen in newsreels and in the film Patton (1971).[4] On his return to civilian life, he was unable to secure cinematography work in Hollywood due to a dearth of industry connections. He made industrial films, freelanced as a still photographer for mainstream films (he did the still photography for Giant), and became a well known glamour photographer whose work included some of the initial shoots for Hugh Hefner's Playboy magazine.

The self-publicist whose medical text books caused a stir

Published nearly 500 years ago, Andreas Vesalius's medical text books occupy an important place in scientific history. Intricate art, unlike anything that had been seen before, sits alongside detailed text that sought to change the way bodies were dissected post mortem. Cambridge University Library holds well-preserved copies of the Fabrica, and its companion piece the Epitome - publications that helped Vesalius realise his personal ambitions in the 16th Century court of the Holy Roman Empire.

Rocky Horror sequel set for London

sShock Treatmenthock Treatment, originally filmed in 1981, was a satire of celebrity, with Rocky Horror characters Brad and Janet trapped in a sinister TV game show. It was a commercial disaster - The Washington Post called it "ludicrous" - and it never gained a general release. O'Brien has reworked the story for its stage debut, which will take place at London's King's Head Theatre in April. "Shock Treatment has been waiting patiently in the wings for a stage premiere since the film was released in 1981," said O'Brien. "Just as Rocky began life upstairs at the Royal Court, it seems a perfect fit for Shock Treatment to start its stage life in the effervescent atmosphere of the astounding King's Head Theatre." Before its DVD release in 2006, very few people had seen Shock Treatment. One exception was the BBC's Mark Kermode, who called it the "perfect cult movie". "It's arguable the soundtrack album is better than Rocky Horror," he said. "It's also packed with cameo roles from people on the rise - not just Ruby Wax but Rik Mayall, long before he found big screen fame in Drop Dead Fred. "But the best thing about Shock Treatment is it eerily predicts the rise of reality television," he added. Kermode's opinion was in the minority, however. US reviewers lamented the loss of Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon, who played Brad and Janet in the original. and branded the film "tiresome" and "junk". "It's a lesson for film-makers: You can't force a cult film, they just happen," wrote The Washington Post's reviewer, Rita Kempley. Shock Treatment is preceded at the King's Head Theatre by the 21st anniversary revival of Trainspotting, which was first seen at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. Other highlights of the theatre's new season include a new play by Richard Cameron, The Flannelettes, and a revival of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore.years ago i saw the rocky horror show in a theatre in essex on a opening night all sorts were dressed up as chaacters for the play it was a great night plus a sing along.

Dennis Claveau interviewed by mark antony raines aka ghostman

--------------------
Questions what inspired you?

I would have to say that my experiences with the paranormal had inspired me to look for more answers. A conversation with my grandmother inspired me to share those answers with others. 

What are your aims?

I want to be able to prove in some empirical capacity that things we call "paranormal" do, in fact, exist. I want to find out how to measure it, interact with it and finally be able to scientifically study it. Bridging the gaps between religion, spiritualism and science. 

What plans do you have for the future? 

I am planning on a series of experiments to try and test out some theories I have regarding electromagnetic energy, recording devices and how it interacts with us, as humans. Hopefully, this will yield some results that I can use to start publishing the research and we will be one step closer to being able to figure out exactly what is going on out there.


Vinyl record sales hit 18-year high

More than one million vinyl records have been sold in the UK so far this year - the first time the milestone has been achieved since 1996. The figures mark a largely unexpected resurgence in an industry now considered to be dominated by digital. Earlier this month, Pink Floyd's The Endless River became the fastest-selling vinyl release since 1997. The Official Chart Company told the BBC it will soon launch a weekly vinyl chart. "In an era when we're all talking about digital music, the fact that these beautiful physical artefacts are still as popular as they are is fantastic," said Martin Talbot, managing director of the Official Charts Company. Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up To Money, he said: "It's really remarkable. We're seeing it come back as a significant earner for the music industry as well. "Only five years ago this business was worth around £3m a year. This year it's going to be worth £20m."READ MORE-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-30216638

NEW HANGOVER CURE?

Scientists have developed the ultimate hangover cure - a drug that reduces the harmful effects of binge-drinking on the brain.
The same drug may open the door to new treatments for Alzheimer's and other brain diseases, researchers believe.
Tested on rats experiencing the equivalent of a human binge-drinking bender, it curbed brain cell loss and inflammation and improved their memory.
Evidence suggests that binge-drinking may have long-term effects on memory, decision-making and the ability to pay attention. Teenagers are especially at risk because their young brains are still developing.
The new drug, named ethane-beta-sultam, was developed over 10 years by British, Belgian and Italian scientists.
Binge-drinking is defined as consuming five or more alcoholic drinks one after the other over a four to six-hour period.
Rats taking part in the study were given doses of alcohol designed to simulate binge-drinking in a human.
Their memory was tested by seeing how well they could find a hidden platform in a water maze.
Animals treated with ethane-beta-sultam were able to navigate the maze as well as those not fed alcohol.
"One of things that alcohol does is to destroy some of the brain cells which are important for navigation and orientation. But a combination of alcohol and our compound could overcome this damage," Professor Mike Page, from the University of Huddersfield, said.
Future work may turn up a compound that performs even better than ethane-beta-sultam, Prof Page said.
In the longer term, such compounds may help in the treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer's that also involve inflammation and the loss of brain cells.
Prof Page acknowledged that protecting against the harmful effects of binge-drinking on the brain might be controversial, but said if it's accepted that alcohol abuse is going to continue, then it might be sensible for society to try and treat it in some way.

Chip Reichenthal INTERVIEWED BY MARK ANTONY RAINES AKA GHOSTMAN

Hello Good Brother:

      Here are the answers to your questions for the blog. Naturally they can be edited to make them shorter if need be. I hope it makes for good blogging, and feel free to let me know how it did or if other questions arise from the interview, either from yourself or from others. I really appreciate being asked, and thank you ever so much. I am attaching the answers as a Document, and if you have any problems with it, I will re-send as a 'cut and paste'. Very best to you, Brother, and again I thank you!

Sincerity and Regards,

Chip Reichenthal
Q: What inspired you?
A: I feel very fortunate, with some years hosting radio shows and being at paranormal conventions and events, to have met what I feel are the greatest minds and talents of the paranormal and metaphysical realms. I feel that many if not most of them come into the realm from a place of fear, where something grabbed them or called out their name and aroused their greatest curiosities. My beginning was quite different, as my earliest experiences were from people I knew well and loved, and I feel that my earliest experiences came instead from a place of love, and yet I am just as motivated to find answers to afterlife sciences, yet rather than a quest for evidence, it is more about the opportunity to communicate.
My first experience came in 1979, right around the time of my 21st Birthday. My very best friend, who lived next door to me all while growing up since we both were two years old, was involved in a horrific accident. A drunk driver ran a red light and hit him while he was on a motorcycle, and he hit the car head first. He was brain-dead once at the hospital, and his prognosis was grim at best. My first encounter with death, yet he was not dead, kept alive artificially with breathing apparatus’’ until his parents had to make a horrid cross-country trip to unplug him. Meanwhile I was trying to process all this, made any grieving more difficult since my dearest friend was not dead. One night I went out to a swingset in my parent’s back yard, with some beers and a determination to figure how to process all this. It was rather peaceful on a warm summer night, yet right around midnight into my Birthday proper, something ‘changed’ with the swing next to me. It’s very hard to describe, but it seemed there was something…some kind of energy on that swing next to me…not that I saw it or heard it, but knew something was there as surely as if I had. Turns out, it was my friend! I had conversations with him, in my mind, since I heard about his accident, but in those conversations it was my inner dialogue that spoke for him. Yet here, what this ‘energy’ said was beyond my wildest imaginings, and something my inner voice would never have considered. My friend said he came to visit on my Birthday and beyond that, said he wanted to ‘give up’ and came for my blessing. Give up? What do you mean…give up, is what I asked in return. He said he could not move, eat, bathe, or do anything for himself…he no longer had that option, because he was brain-dead. At best, he was doomed to be a vegetable, and others would have to do everything for him. He always was very independent, it was his nature to be so, and refused to live in such undignified manner, and he wanted out, and came for my blessing. I tried to talk him out of it…stronger survive, I said…hang in there, Doctors may find a way to fix him, I said. He stood his ground, though, and made some convincing arguments until it finally made sense to me that perhaps, in his case, there are worse things than death, and I caved in, agreed with him, and gave my blessing. I told him I was moved, I was touched, that of all people, he came to me for such blessing, and once granted, he thanked me. I told him I hoped he might visit me…after…and he said he would try. After that, he was gone, and the ‘energy’ on that swing was no more. About ten minutes later, by now around 3am, my Mother came outside to the swingset to tell me that my friend’s parents had just called to tell us they pulled the plug on him about ten minutes ago and wanted us to be the first to know. At that point, I realized quite plainly that I had spoken to my best friend, my first soulmate in life, right at the moment of his death. That changed my outlook on death and the potential for afterlife forever. Happy Birthday to me. I had also had a visit from my Wife’s Father a year after his passing, a story perhaps for another day, and my friend has also visited a few times, and I have spend the better part of my full adulthood in search of answers, considering paranormal, spirituality, parapsychology, metaphysics, quantum physics and other realms that consider these quandaries, really ever since that defining moment.
Q: What are your aims?

A: Through the years I have developed a distinct platform, especially nowadays where it is not so taboo to talk freely about ‘ghosts’ or communicating with the dead, and it has everything to do with being brought into the realm in a fashion more ‘love-based’ than fear-based’. Especially considering media, where television shows are practically horror movies guised as research or documentary shows. It appears as though evil is afoot whenever something unseen is making noises or moving things about a house, and there is even taunting potential spirit activity to gain evidence for the studio audience, and I vehemently disagree with such methods and aim to change the way we approach these energies. I think if there are spirit energies, even ones thought malevolent, then perhaps we should consider them as people, who lived lives, gained wisdom, and are worthy of respect rather than fear or eradication. I understand the reasoning behind all this…we tend to fear the unknown, and even look for thrills, and there are many faiths that see any attempt to communicate with these types of things as sinful. Yet I have spent decades researching and investigating the paranormal. I had some years attuned as a spirit medium with remarkable success, and I look to theoretical physics as well. I have never had a negative encounter or got scratched or pushed; never had an EVP that was negative or threatening, I have helped people besieged by the poison of deep grief and even helped spirit energies cross over or relay messages to loved ones. I have seen love in them, or felt their pain; I have considered some things more residual than in spirit; I have considered that there may be times the person’s personality or history splits…where the pain is in one area and the grace in another, and have seen instances where the living are creating the chaos of items moving about a room on their own. There are so many different situations, and each different, often leading to more questions than answers. One thing rings out, and that is that the dead don’t suddenly change into some evil and monstrous beings or develop otherworldly psychic powers just because the living body is out of the equation. Like anyone else, they hope to be heard, considered, respected…sometimes they don’t know they’re dead…but we all long to belong. I distinctly believe that every single person is a story, and when you take the time to learn that story, it is always fascinating. The more you learn these stories, the more you know about people, dead or alive, and after a long time looking toward afterlife communication and speaking with so many other enthusiasts, eventually you come to believe that some things are true whether we believe in them or not. My platform is, basically, that ‘ghosts’ are people too…if they are ‘ghosts’ in the first place. I see people who honor the history of a property thought ‘haunted’, and sometimes there is a distinct love and honor there, which is great…and sometimes they are basically treating the dead like pets or flaunting the tragedy the occurred there and sometimes that is unconscionable disrespect …and yet they wonder why so much negative activity occurs. Sometimes I see people who feed the bad…and once someone tells you they ‘have a bad feeling about a certain room’ or they think a ghost is active, it sends all others into expectation mode, and they begin to blame all sorts of natural activity to the ghost they now expect or the ‘bad feeling’ has to come to fruition somehow, and it becomes our expectation to see bad where there may be none in the first place. So many times I have been on investigations where people get ‘scratched’ in front of us or expect  all this nasty stuff, and often the ‘scratch’ comes from engaging in something and forgetting or ignoring it, and rather than malice, it’s the kind of thing where they want the attention back and it’s incidental and not malicious at all…sometimes people create the ‘scratch’ themselves for attention. Again, everything’s a situation on these investigations, if there is anything there at all. It may also be inter-dimensional, or even a time-warp that brings us these energies…the Einstein ‘space-time’ thing…and look…I do not claim to be an expert in this…no one is, really…as we still have no proof of any of this. But if I can impact anything within these realms, I hope to show a kinder side of afterlife science, where if we think on paranormal activity stemming from people and not some demon, we have a wonderful chance to embrace a kinder side of the realm, and that is my greatest motivation here. We need more ‘nice’ in life, and it can bring some amazing potential when we bring more ‘nice’ to afterlife science as well, and there aren’t many folks actively considering that, so I will.
Q: What plans do you have for the future?
A: I have a lot of things going on, thanks mainly to the radio shows. They’ve led to more shows, guest appearances, lectures, I have a book out that’s published and writing more, I’ve had acting roles in film and have been a part of documentaries on internet and in film, I make appearances at Paracons. I’ve had the tremendous fortune to meet my heroes, and many are personal friends now. I have some offers in the air, to appear in Documentaries, write for a magazine, more acting roles, another book in the works; I do Tarot readings, and have some nationally known psychics I’ve read for who loved my approach. It is magical. For the radio, I am not aiming for fame…I am aiming to be the person these friends and talents come to when they want something promoted, or to be featured in the kindest light, and I hope to ask the deeper questions…I don’t want a million listeners…I want my heroes to think of me when they have something special to them, and I hope to pay goodness forward. All else will follow from there. Of all things, though, I get the most pleasure and value from lecturing. I want to do more of that. I have a lecture platform entitled “Ghosts Are People Too: The Kinder Side of Afterlife Science” and it has been wonderfully received. My book that is currently out is called “Even the Dead Won’t Tell You the Truth” from Rowe Publishing, on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the Rowe Publishing website of rowepub.com. The book is a fictional work based on personal truths, and is a murder mystery where the main character talks to the dead as a living. His best friend is charged with murder, the victim known to them both. The friend is not into the ‘talking to the dead’ stuff, but with evidence circumstantial and damning and piling up, he asks our medium to communicate with the murder victim to find a way to clear his name. It has a lot of first-person perspective from the eyes of a medium and is as informative as it is a really good mystery, and the book has done well. I am working on a new book that may be a sequel, but adds some science-fiction to the mix, and will still delve into first-person metaphysics. I am also more active in UFOlogy and have a few prospects there…and sometimes the world of physics and the quantum world helps to find potential answers to a lot of paranormal-type things, and I’m in. Most of all, in any and all of this, the platform is about ‘nice’, it is about a kinder approach along with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. My current radio show is called “Beyond the Norm with Chip Reichenthal” and is on A1B Radio Monday nights at 9 pm Eastern US time on www.MyA1B.com and I will be doing lecture tours in 2015 with another Rowe Publishing Author, Mark Keyes, who inspired a character in my book. He is a State Police Detective who works malevolent hauntings in his spare time with some other lawenforcement officers, and wrote a marvelous book called “Chasing Shadows”, a non-fiction that is truly the best book I’ve ever read on the paranormal, and he also embraces a kinder look at afterlife, and together we will be bringing the ‘nice’ forward. It seems more opportunities are coming my way all the time now, and I am still open to lecture dates or doing readings and other engagements. I hope to accomplish what my greatest hero if life has…my Dad…who ultimately is a ‘nice guy’ who finished first, and that is my ultimate goal.

Bob Paulsen INERVIEWED BY MARK ANTONY RAINES AKA GHOSTMAN

QUESTIONS WHAT INSPIRED YOU? WHAT ARE YOUR AIMS? WHAT PLANS DO YOU HAVE FOR THE FUTURE? THANK YOU Near death for inspiration...the need to understand for motovation. ...and the future is the present. .

Josh Heard Author, Lecturer, Paranormal Investigator-INTERVIEWED BY MARK ANTONY RAINES-GHOSTMAN

What initially inspired me was a paranormal experience a few days after my uncle passed away. I was around 12 years old when this all took place. Having had too much "family time," I was home alone. I was trying my best to cope with the loss of my uncle by myself. He was, after all very close to me and this was the first time I had truly dealt with losing a close family member. I remember walking through my house and being stopped abruptly by what could only be described as my uncle's cologne. It was a very distinct smelling cologne that I still to this day have yet to find out the name or brand of. I was frozen solid and every hair that my body had to offer was standing on point. I said his name, sensing he was close to me and the cold left me. My hair was back to normal and I could no longer smell his cologne. That was the experience that really got me thinking about the possibility of life after death. From that moment on, I devoured every book on ghosts and paranormal investigating that I could get my hands on. My main goal or aim in this field is to present the facts and only facts. I try to bring the most credible evidence to the table and, with the evidence, try to put forth theory as to why some of these paranormal happening exist. In my mind, there is no doubt whatsoever that there is an afterlife. My only goal is to try and explain/ understand it. The future is full of possibilities for me. We just completed filming for a paranormal documentary entitled "A Brush With Evil." It is set to be released in spring of 2015. This documentary retells my first book "When Ghost Hunting Goes Wrong: A Brush With Evil." In the film, the team and I show the audience the potential dangers of paranormal investigating. Things that you certainly won't see on television. The story itself, surrounds one location. A haunted chapel outside of Maryville, MO. A location where I have personally experienced more activity than anywhere else in my travels. Very dark stuff resides within the small, one room chapel and we have done our best to try and figure out who or what it is. The film itself will be terrifying BUT will bring with it an overall message of hope and overcoming obstacles. I cannot wait to share this film with everyone. We will be taking the film on tour in the spring and then releasing it online and on DVD as well. Many more books are in the works as well for me but, at this point, the film is top priority. To see the first trailer, go to YouTube and search for A Brush With Evil Trailer #1. I hope you enjoy it!! Thanks so much for reaching out. If you have any more questions, I will be around!!

'Hitler' painting fetches $161,000 at Nuremberg auction

The watercolour painting "Altes Rathaus" which was supposedly painted by Adolf Hitler, is shown at an auction house in Nuremberg, Germany, 20 November 2014A watercolour thought to be painted by Adolf Hitler has sold at an auction in Germany for 130,000 euros (£103,000; $161,000).
The 1914 painting of Munich's city hall was put up for sale by two elderly sisters. Their grandfather had bought the painting in 1916.
A private buyer from the Middle East, who wished to remain anonymous, bought the work, auction house Weidler said.
Experts generally consider Hitler's artworks to be of poor quality.
The auction was held in the central German town of Nuremberg.
The auction house said bidders from four continents had expressed an interest in the work.-READ MORE-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30160663

this is a place run by volunteers and i help out on a thursday from 9 .30 am to 2.30 pm with the garden side at the moment at first felt odd as in old days of voluntary work you just did the hours you wished but i think the government have started to make people do at least 5 hours a wek   am enjoying it and hope there like me as i am a bit weird.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhAK0ltvX7A-https://www.facebook.com/pages/Happy-Cafe-Cafe-Cycles/113316998777820?sk=info

MPs back bill designed to limit NHS 'privatisation'-MAKE A STAND AGAINST.

Labour MPs show their support for the bill on 19 NovemberA bill which aims to curb the private sector's role in the NHS has cleared its first parliamentary hurdle.
Under the bill, compulsory tendering for NHS contracts would end and NHS hospitals' income generated by private patients would be restricted.
Although MPs backed it in a vote by 241 to 18, as a private member's bill it has only a slim chance of becoming law.
The government insisted its priority was to ensure care was "delivered in the right way for patients".
Labour MP Clive Efford brought in the bill, which he said would "cut the heart out" of the coalition's reforms.
It would restore ultimate responsibility for the NHS to the health secretary, stop NHS hospitals earning up to 49% of their income from private patients, and would exempt the NHS from an EU-US trade treaty known as TTIP.
Critics fear TTIP could lead to American companies suing future governments for reversing privatisation.
Those who voted in favour of the bill included two Conservative and seven Lib Dem rebels.MAKE A STAND AGAINST THIS-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-30137368

Comet landing: Organic molecules detected by Philae

Carbon-containing "organics" are the basis of life on Earth and may give clues to chemical ingredients delivered to our planet early in its history. The compounds were picked up by a German-built instrument designed to "sniff" the comet's thin atmosphere. Other analyses suggest the comet's surface is largely water-ice covered with a thin dust layer. The European Space Agency (Esa) craft touched down on the Comet 67P on 12 November after a 10-year journey. Dr Fred Goessmann, principal investigator on the Cosac instrument, which made the organics detection, confirmed the find to BBC News. But he added that the team was still trying to interpret the results. It has not been disclosed which molecules have been found, or how complex they are. Continue reading the main story “ Start Quote There's a trade off - once it gets too hot, Philae will die as well. There is a sweet spot” Prof Mark McCaughrean Senior science adviser, Esa But the results are likely to provide insights into the possible role of comets in contributing some of the chemical building blocks to the primordial mix from which life evolved on the early Earth. Preliminary results from the Mupus instrument, which deployed a hammer to the comet after Philae's landing, suggest there is a layer of dust 10-20cm thick on the surface with very hard water-ice underneath. The ice would be frozen solid at temperatures encountered in the outer Solar System - Mupus data suggest this layer has a tensile strength similar to sandstone. "It's within a very broad spectrum of ice models. It was harder than expected at that location, but it's still within bounds," said Prof Mark McCaughrean, senior science adviser to Esa, told BBC News. "People will be playing with [mathematical] models of pure water-ice mixed with certain amount of dust."-READ MORE-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-30097648

Sun's magnetic field boosts lightning strikes across the UK

lightningThe number of lightning strikes across the UK has been significantly affected by solar activity, according to new research.
Scientists say the Sun's magnetic field is bending the Earth's own field, increasing our exposure to cosmic rays.
These rays are believed to increase the number of thunderclouds and trigger lightning bolts in some locations.
Over five years, the UK experienced 50% more strikes when the Earth's magnetic field was affected by the Sun.
Fields of influence
The manner is which lightning bolts are triggered has long puzzled scientists as the air is known to be a good insulator of electricity.
Something else needs to come into play to conduct the electrical charges built up in thunder clouds down to the ground.
Since the 1990s, researchers have speculated that the magnetic activity of the Sun could be linked to lightning on Earth.
Current theories hold that high energy particles called galactic cosmic rays provide the necessary link that lets the current flow into a lightning bolt.
This latest work suggests that the orientation of the Sun's magnetic field is playing a significant role in the number of strikes.
The researchers believe the field is like a bar magnet, so as our star spins around sometimes the field points towards the Earth and sometimes away.
"What we found was there is significantly more lightning in the UK when the field is pointing towards the Sun than when its pointing away which was surprising," said Dr Matt Owens from the University of Reading, the lead author on the study.
"What we think is happening is that the Sun's magnetic field is pulling or pushing on the Earth's field and that's letting energetic charged particles down into the atmosphere at different locations and the idea is that these actually trigger lightning."
"For lightning, you need a thin conducting channel like a wire, and galactic cosmic http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-30103561rays can provide this thin column of ionisation in the atmosphere."READ MORE-

Posts at moments just links so sorry folks

At moment my posts on various blogs may be just a link to the headline and not my normal standard so I just like to say I am sorry. Hopefull...
