Film by Vic Atkinson, who has proven that to make a dope movie, all you need is a damp forest of fungi and Chappell’s TVMusic 101-104 on wax. Throw in a few bugs and dead leaves for added ambience, and you’ve got yourself an instant classic.

Single mother Denise Lescano, from Florida, US, is a much needed support for parents of children who show worrying signs of having a sixth sense. Denise uses her psychic abilities to 'speak to' the spirits and instructs families on how to approach life beyond death. Denise, who believes she has been psychic since the age of nine, said: "My biggest mission in life is to get rid of the fear around what I do. This is not a scary thing, this is a very healing and comforting thing." Often Denise is called to determine whether youngsters are seeing spirits or displaying signs of mental illness: "Sometimes the parents don't know how do deal with their children's abilities."
They had this special effects show in a big theater with shaking chairs and water sprinklers. It was pretty cool and very Disney. This part caught my attention, though. They were constantly tearing down teachers. Teachers who teach evolution are the worst!
Leonard Knight, the lean New Englander who spent three decades joyously painting religious messages on a tall mound of adobe he called Salvation Mountain in the Imperial Valley desert, died Monday at age 82. His death was announced on his Salvation Mountain Facebook page by his devoted followers who have been attempting to preserve his labor of love east of the Salton Sea near the squatter village called Slab City. Until his health declined, Knight had lived in the back of his truck, sharing his space with a variety of cats without names, undeterred by the brutal desert heat or howling winds. To his amazement, Knight had become a favorite of folk art aficionados.
A couple says holy dirt from the northern New Mexico town has left a holy and healing mark. Just last weekend, Paula Osuna says she fell down the stairs at her home causing painful bruises all over her foot. Eventually she asked her fiancé to rub some of the holy Chimayo dirt he had saved from a pilgrimage there a couple years back. After putting the holy dirt on her foot and then bandaging it, she says the next day the bruise formed in the shape of Jesus on her second toe. Osuna says her family members first noticed the bruise. The bruise has since changed shape, but Osuna says she’s convinced of the holy sighting.
About.com‘s Urban Legends page debunks the burning snow videos that have been making the rounds of the usual sites of late:
… Read the rest
Several videos have cropped up on YouTube documenting a “weird phenomenon” variously described as “burning snow,” “fake snow,” “chemical snow,” and “snow that won’t melt.” The videos show people holding cigarette lighters and blowtorches up to a handful of snow and remarking on how the latter seemingly blackens and “burns like plastic” instead of melting, all the while giving off a “chemical odor.”
As is the fashion these days, some folks are resorting to conspiracy theories in lieu of science to explain the phenomenon, the result being one big Internet freak-out over supposed government-backed weather manipulation (“geo-engineering”), chemtrail fallout, nanobot invasions, and HAARP attacks (I even found one article using the term “false flag”).
On the other hand, there’s plain old, ordinary physics.
Played on a hexagonal pitch with three teams instead of two, it was devised by the Danish Situationist Asger Jorn to explain his notion of triolectics, his refinement on the Marxian concept of dialectics, as well as to disrupt one's everyday idea of football. The game deconstructs the confrontational and bi-polar nature of conventional football as an analogy of class struggle in which the referee stands as a signifier of the state and media apparatus, posturing as a neutral arbitrator in the political process of ongoing class struggle. The first known game was organized by the London Psychogeographical Association as part of the Glasgow Anarchist Summer School.
Alaskan GOP candidate for the US Senate Kathleen Tonn recently published a video showing her delivering a message in "the Holy Ghost and tongues" to an unsaved woman in a local steam room in an effort to confuse Satan, and some critics are attacking her for it. In the video published on YouTube Saturday, Tonn is shown singing and witnessing to the woman she identified as Suzie in the steam room at the Alaska Club West. "Suzie doesn't know Jesus Christ as her savior…so she has allowed me to deliver a message in the Holy Ghost and tongues," said Tonn in the video. She then explained why she chose to deliver the message in tongues: "Speaking in tongues or singing in tongues is very valuable because the message cannot be understood by Satan."
