BETTIE PAGE - DEATH OF AN ICON

Patrick's Present Pictures, Images and Photos

Manohla Dargis in the New York Times - Always Comfortable in Her Own Skin: The art critic John Berger once wrote: “To be naked is to be oneself. To be nude is to be seen naked by others and yet not recognized for oneself.” I’m pretty certain he never met Bettie Page, naked, nude or otherwise."

latimesblog: "Hugh Hefner, who knew Bettie when she was young and when she resurfaced, told AP yesterday: "I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society. She was a very dear person.""

The website has changed a bit. If you wanna know the true identities of the greatest mystery band of all time (you will probably be pretty disappointed!), go to one of their shows in time, hang around the bar and look for a small group of people having exactly one drink together while watching the audience from the back. That's their little ritual before they go backstage to put on their costumes.

R.I.P. FORREST J ACKERMAN - MR. SCIENCE FICTION PASSED AWAY

He must have been a wonderful person. I always wanted to go and see the legendary Ackermanison and interview him about Jack Parsons.

Monsters and aliens are crying.

Harry Knowles has published his "just in case" letter: " in 2003 - Forry sent me a letter contemplating his own impending death that he had asked me to pass on in case he passed away. This is his personal statement and closing thoughts on life that he wished for me to share. Things he wanted to set straight according to his personal beliefs and philosophies. It is especially hard to read today..."

ENGLISCHE POLIZEI SETZT SEIFENBLASEN GEGEN TRUNKENBOLDE EIN

Drunkard Pictures, Images and Photos
Tagesschau: Wer hier, im Norden Englands, künftig am Wochenende volltrunken aus einem Pub oder Club torkelt und nach einer handfesten Schlägerei Ausschau hält, muss nicht mehr mit dem Gummiknüppel oder umgedrehten Armen rechnen. Vielmehr wird ihm ein freundlicher Polizist ein Fläschchen mit Seifenblasen-Tinktur überreichen. Dahinter steht die Hoffnung, dass der eben noch Gewaltbereite sofort von seinem verwerflichen Tun ablässt, auch nicht dem Polizisten mit der Flasche auf die Mütze haut, sondern umgehend von kindlichem Spieltrieb gepackt wird. Elaine Sherrington von der örtlichen Verwaltung jedenfalls ist davon überzeugt, dass die "Nachtschwärmer" auf diese Art "etwas Spaß" haben, "auf den sie sich konzentrieren können".

"Marry Our Daughter is an introduction service assisting those following the Biblical tradition of arranging marriages for their daughters.

Those who wish to list their Daughters with our site should click on SIGN UP OUR DAUGHTER on our main page for a form to fill out.

They have ads like this one:

"Kristin J.
Age: 16,
Location: South

Bride Price:
$49,995

Kristin has a wild streak. She likes parties and has spent more time with boys than we’d have liked her to. We had a family talk and decided that it was time she settled down with a man who could meet her needs and help her fulfill her dreams of being an actor or singer. She’s a bit fiery but worth it."

Anna R . is much cheaper:

"Age: 17 ½,
Location: Northeast

Bride Price:
$3,995

Anna R. has been living with foster families since she was 5 and is a bit rough around the edges but is basically a good girl. When she turns 18 she will age out of the foster system and will have to move out and is looking for a kind and caring man to look after her needs while she looks after his."

MORE OBAMARAMA

NEW: Change.gov

Slashdot: According to the site 'Change.gov provides resources to better understand the transition process and the decisions being made as part of it. It also offers an opportunity to be heard about the challenges our country faces and your ideas for tackling them. The Obama Administration will reflect an essential lesson from the success of the Obama campaign: that people united around a common purpose can achieve great things.' The site is extensive and contains Obama's agenda for economy and education among many others. They first define the problem and then lay out the plan. Everything is in simple English without a trace of Washington-speak. The site also has details about the transition. According to many sources, Obama's transition efforts started months ago. The copyright for the content is held by 'Obama-Biden Transition Project, a 501c(4) organization'."

ART IN REAL-LIFE VIOLENCE

Canada.com: "The Aug. 15 "status" notation on Mark Twitchell's Facebook site is chilling.

"Mark has way too much in common with Dexter Morgan," it reads.

It was a reference to Dexter, the TV show about a forensic expert who moonlights as a vigilante serial killer.

Last week, the aspiring Edmonton filmmaker was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Johnny Brian Altinger, 38.

Police allege that on Oct. 10, Twitchell lured Altinger, who thought he was on his way to hook up with a woman he had met online, to a garage on Edmonton's south side where the Star Wars and Dexter fanatic makes no-budget movies."

MISHIMA'S SUICIDE MOVIE

Mishima Pictures, Images and Photos

It's weird to look at this while suicide bombers post their videos on YouTube and all that...

U B U W E B : "Playwright and novelist Yukio Mishima foreshadowed his own violent suicide with this ravishing short feature, his only foray into filmmaking, yet made with the expressiveness and confidence of a true cinema artist. All prints of Patriotism (Yûkoku), which depicts the seppuku of a army officer, were destroyed after Mishima's death in 1970, though the negative was saved, and the film resurfaced thirty-five years later. New viewers will be stunned at the depth and clarity of Mishima's vision, as well as his graphic depictions of sex and death."

THIRD ROBERT JOHNSON PICTURE DISCOVERED

Vanity Fair has a great story: "In the seven decades since his mysterious death, bluesman Robert Johnson’s legend has grown—the tragically short life, the “crossroads” tale of supernatural talent, the genuine gift that inspired Dylan, Clapton, and other greats—but his image remains elusive: only two photos of Johnson have ever been seen by the public. In 2005, on eBay, guitar maven Zeke Schein thought he’d found a third. Schein’s quest to authenticate the picture only led to more questions, both about Johnson himself and about who controls his valuable legacy."

BURGER KING MADE ROBERT DOWNEY JR. STOP DOING DRUGS

iron man Pictures, Images and Photos

"Robert Downey Jr. has publicly thanked Burger King for helping him overcome his problems with addiction. The fast food chain, he says, also helped to resurrect his career.

The fast food epiphany happened in 2003 when the "Iron Man" star was driving a car piled with "tons of f---ing dope," Downey Jr. told Britain's Empire magazine. The actor decided to pull over for a burger and everything changed.

"I have to thank Burger King," he said. "It was such a disgusting burger I ordered. I had that, and this big soda, and I thought something really bad was going to happen." Downey Jr. says he then tossed all of his drugs into the ocean, deciding right then and there to clean up his act.

Downey Jr. hints that a fateful moment in "Iron Man," when his character Tony Stark requests a cheeseburger from Burger King after being released from his captors, is a reference to his own experiences."
