 Rest in peace, ERIN MORAN.

p.s. Despite working on and off as an actress, Moran reportedly lost her Palmdale, California, home to foreclosure in 2010, according to documents. According to the documents, the house was sold at public auction for $291,150. It was also reported that Moran refused to leave the home after it was sold and was served with eviction papers.

Such an interesting film and unusual ghost story. I honestly hesitated for many months to watch this new one by my dear friend Olivier despite his pushing, as his films are usually very meditative in mood, but this one is really 'suspenseful' and in the creepiest of ways by using contemporary electronic communication devices and the contemporary climate of 'mystery' that is attached to all of our social media tools and the world wide web that imprisons us. This film will soon become a creaky ectoplasm classic of the avant-garde cinema. bye.

A nail gun, nailgun or nailer is a type of tool used to drive ugly painted fake fingernails into wood or some other kind of material that you can flier up with duct tape around town. It is usually driven by compressed air (pneumatic), electromagnetism like Superman uses, highly flammable human Taco Bell gases such as butane (or propane if you have had modern-day holistic surgery), or, for powder-actuated tools, a small explosive charge that makes a big KABOOM sound. bye.

'The Seven Five' is now on NETFLIX

Field Recording - 'WIND'


'What do we really hear when we hear the wind? In fact, what we are hearing is moving air colliding with – and playing – the surface of the Earth. It is the grass that is singing and the trees that are soughing. When the wind blows, each thing creates its own distinctive sounds, from the swells of the sea to the sands of the desert, from the rolling mountains to the vast ice-sheets, from our blocky buildings to the cables that connect them overhead.'

Extreme Economy Seating.

An officer who dragged a passenger off a United Airlines flight has been placed on leave, a Chicago Aviation Department representative told Business Insider on Monday. 
A video showing three officers forcibly removing a man from a plane traveling from Chicago to Louisville went viral on Monday, sparking outrage on social media.
The man was removed after refusing to give up his seat on the flight, the Aviation Department said in a statement.
United says it first asked for volunteers to leave the plane in exchange for $800, but when no one volunteered, it told several passengers to leave.
When the man refused to give up his seat, the officers pulled him off the plane, resulting in injuries to his face. The man was treated at a local hospital.

"The incident on United Flight 3411 was not in accordance with our standard operating procedure, and the actions of the aviation security officer are obviously not condoned by the department," a representative for the Aviation Department wrote in an email to Business Insider. "That officer has been placed on leave effective today pending a thorough review of the situation."
The representative did not clarify why only one of the three officers was placed on leave. They said an investigation was ongoing.
The officers who were involved work for the Aviation Department, which is not affiliated with the Chicago Police Department, a Police Department representative told Business Insider.
United Airlines provided this statement to Business Insider:
"Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities."

United CEO Oscar Munoz released a statement about the incident as well:
"This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened. We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly to him and further address and resolve this situation."

'THE DISCOVERY' is now on NETFLIX, starring Rooney Mara (and directed by her significant other). Robert Redford makes this streaming-tv-commissioned thing stay on solid ground as it meanders all over the place like a painful sea sickness. bye.

Non-linear weaving.

Such a wild new world we live in, in which making and creating films and stories can happen anywhere now, and as easy as opening up one's notebook (or MacBook). There are no excuses anymore, and the poet, novelist and film artist are now one of the same- plugged in.  bye.

Tomahawk morning (no TGIF).

Without any Congressional approval, our new president has instigated a new war in the Middle East, in a place where Russia sleeps at night. Wasn't his election platform based on a premise & promise that 'we are not going to continue to be the policemen of the world' ?  

Everyone should begin praying right now. Bigtime. 

And, let's hope that the Mayan calendar was not slightly off by a few years...
