Strawberry Moon Wanderings 3
I Wanna Be Loved By You
"I Wanna Be Loved By You" (Betty Boop version)
Darkly artistic scene from 'House of 1000 Corpses' (2003). Rob Zombie is a genius. I'm still waiting for him to equal this very creative grindhouse film. Much of the darkness and violence was put with unusual music, so it was almost like some dark/demented music videos. I mean who would have thought to put a disturbing massacre with Slim Whitman's 'I Remember You'!
"Art is not always pretty." -- Rob Zombie
I believe that the version used here was sung by Helen Kane. I think part of the idea behind this scene was the popular comic book character Lady Death.

One guy I used to hang around with had a somewhat aloof younger brother who was obsessed with Lady Death. He had all the memorabilia; comics, books, posters, etc. He was in his mid-20s, and a few of us used to joke on him. He wasn't the least bit shy about showing us all of this collection either. I guess one could say that this was his religion.
'Turner Classic Movies to screen Olivia de Havilland films in honor of 100th birthday'
Daniel Bubbeo - NewsDay.com - June 21, 2016
- Two-time Oscar winner also played Melanie in “Gone With the Wind”
- Errol Flynn her co-star in eight movies; she’s also an author
One of Hollywood’s true survivors, Olivia de Havilland, celebrates her 100th birthday on Friday, July 1, but it’s her fans who will receive the gifts of her talents as an actress and a writer.
Turner Classic Movies will screen de Havilland’s movies — 39 in all — Friday nights in July, including her eight pairings with Errol Flynn and her Oscar-winning turns in “To Each His Own” (1946) and “The Heiress” (1949). Also on tap will be three other Oscar-nominated performances: as Melanie Hamilton in “Gone With the Wind” (1939); “Hold Back the Dawn” (1941), for which she lost the best actress award to her sister, Joan Fontaine, for “Suspicion”; and the gripping “The Snake Pit” (1948), in which she played a mental patient.

I filmed this out of my window for about 6 minutes so I cut it up into just it moving. Keep watching for the slow mo's at the end.
It gets the rabbit at 1.38 .
The Curse Of The 27 Club
Over the last few decades, dozens of musical superstars have died - often dramatically - at the early age of 27. 'The 27 Club' has gained much infamy, its members including household names such as Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. But is there any truth to the idea? Could there really be some sinister, supernatural force linking the deaths of these icons?
The Saturnian connection
In horoscopic astrology, a Saturn return is an astrological transit that occurs when the planet Saturn returns to the same place in the sky that it occupied at the moment of a person's birth. While the planet may not reach the exact spot until the person is 29 or 30 years old, the influence of the Saturn return is considered to start in the person's late twenties, notably the age of 27.
Psychologically, the first Saturn return is seen as the time of reaching full adulthood, and being faced, perhaps for the first time, with adult challenges and responsibilities
'The Legend of the Catskill Witch'
George Baird and Erica Obey - MountainHikingSite.com
The legend of the Catskill Witch is as old as the gnomes playing at ninepins or the Headless Horseman, having made her first appearance as a postscript to Washington Irving’s tale of Rip van Winkle, where she is described as dwelling on the highest peak of the Catskills, and had charge of the doors of day and night to open and shut them at the proper hour. She hung up the new moon in the skies, and cut up the old ones into stars. In times of drought, if properly propitiated, she would spin light summer clouds out of cobwebs and morning dew, and send them off from the crest of the mountain, flake after flake, like flakes of carded cotton, to float in the air; until, dissolved by the heat of the sun, they would fall in gentle showers, causing the grass to spring, the fruits to ripen, and the corn to grow an inch an hour. If displeased, however, she would brew up clouds black as ink, sitting in the midst of them like a bottle-bellied spider in the midst of its web; and when these clouds broke, woe betide the valleys!

The Antikythera Mechanism - 2D
Antikythera - Anticythère
More than 21 centuries ago, a mechanism of fabulous ingenuity was created in Greece, a device capable of indicating exactly how the sky would look for decades to come -- the position of the moon and sun, lunar phases and even eclipses. But this incredible invention would be drowned in the sea and its secret forgotten for two thousand years.

The other day a black feather just made itself known to me by just being right there in my path. An interesting game to play is to find the synchronistic symbols that you may observe during the day. Most would be coincidence, but I believe that some are elemental symbols. This black feather was to my left...
"If the feather appeared on your LEFT:
This indicates a very strong SPIRITUAL message for you. Your higher self has brought you to this very moment to receive the message you are about to receive. Understand that this message is for your SOUL, your spiritual self, the shadow side of your nature, the dreamer and the lover within you."

'Encounter with two mountain lions was double the thrill'
Tom Stienstra - San Francisco Chronicle - June 20, 2016
[Above image: Photo: John Richards - Trail cam set up above Foothills Park near Skyline on Peninsula captured this shot of mountain lion meandering down trail]
At age 89, a hiker on the Peninsula encountered two mountain lions last week inside of 10 feet. Warren Storkman of Palo Alto then walked away without a scratch and with the thrill of a lifetime.
Storkman was hiking at Foothills Park in Palo Alto, where a trail is cut into the edge of a steep slope above a valley. At this spot, the landscape is grassland and chaparral.
“To my surprise, coming around a curve, a beautiful, youthful lion, running at top speed,” Storkman said. “It was being chased by another lion of the same stature.
George Harrison-My Sweet Lord (Studio Version) Original
Great song. I think one should be able to associate any music to whatever they wish. This song doesn't have to be for the Lord, or for Hare Krishna. It can be a tribute to a person, a place, a time, a dream, a concept, or whatever you wish. This would be a good example of that idea.
This song reminds of an old girlfriend named Francesca... a long time ago. We just weren't really on the same page. Oddly, over the years she became a little more like I was then; and I have become a little more like she was then. I suppose that means that it was never meant to be..
