I haven't seen it. Saw the pre-publicity "making of" type things, and it looked so fake. All the CGI was so obvious. I don't need to sit through that.

LOL - I wanted to post a query about the appropriateness of (well documented to be) improper placement of local historical markers. If it sounds like a conspiracy (who knows...) it would be for the GTP board, if not (again who knows why the markers are not properly placed..?) this board - no, wait, it asks questions - so mysteries board? LOL! One of the markers in question says "Abe Lincoln

Maybe Shakespeare, Francis Bacon, Amelia Bassano, and Edward de Vere were ALL the same person. Maybe they were all an early version of "The Great Impostor": "10 Greatest Imposters in History" oddee.com/item_96600.aspx Perhaps there should be a number 11 on that list who faked the lives and work of Shakespeare, Francis Bacon, Amelia Bassano, and Edward de Vere.

Bacon is known to take "mummy dust" seriously as a cure-all - Shakespeare made fun of it as a magical ingredient of his witches in Macbeth. One can change ones mind about things, but this often goes unmentioned in the Bacon-is-Shakespeare debate.

The funny thing about Castaneda's work - phony as it may well be, is that if you try doing any of the stuff he talks about - it can work. May be phony as all heck - but perhaps a bit "inspired" for lack of another term. If there be "powers", spiritual entities and such out there, would they not want to be known about, and some of them being "tricksters' - would they not e

Don is on a little vacation from the board. I took his meaning to be "V" for "visitor" as in a TV program from a few years back about visitors from another world. I might be wrong - wouldn't be the first time.

Nothing weird about me at all. By the way - I'm trying to re-connect with my childhood Imaginary Friends. They don't seem to be on Facebook. They have classmates.com, navybuddies.com - no invisiblefriends.com. There's an internet fortune waiting to be made!

I agree that their familiarity with doing movie soundtracks might have inspired, and would have facilitated their ability to do so. Most "Floyd related boards on the "net would find most people quite doubtfull about them actually doing so with Wizard, etc. Im not sure if they did it on purpoase or not myself, but it sure is interesting to watch.

Cool. Do DSOTM/Wizard like ya usually do, then Animals as soon as DSOTM ends - some really interesting scenes that way. I got the idea of doing Zep 4 as soon as Animals ends 'cause there's a scene in the land of Oz where there are some guys standing together wearing shirts that say "Oz" - so Im thinking "what should I try after Animals ends, as there is still some movie left"

Try putting CD's or mp3's on "random" - look for there to be some synchronicity, and you may soon seriously question that word "random". I was listening to Nancy Sinatra's "You Only Live Twice" and thinking how that song would sound great with a singer from the Philippines with a thick accent. Next song that came on randomly is Paul McCartney's "Old Siam Sir&quo

Any time I hear - or even really think of the Arlo Guthrie song "City Of New Orleans" I have a streak of "bad luck". I always turn it off when it comes on the radio since I noticed that, but recently convinced myself to quit being so foolish. Someone sang it at karaoke recently. I didn't leave to quit hearing it or anything - and now I find Im on the outs with my brother and I

One time, decades ago, I had a VERY bad dream. Woke up, turned on the radio to try to help get the dream out of my head, and the first thing I hear as I turn on the radio is Pink Floyd (from the "Animals" album - song "Dogs") singing "no, this is no bad dream. Things are just what they seem". Had a LOT of things like that happen with music in my late teens/early twen

Good deeds alone can't be enough to escape this prison. Learning more physics, etc. to better enable us to be even more helpfull in good deeds sounds about right. I've a theory that it's all about physics, anyway. Physics state that for energy to flow, and do any work, there must be an opposite for every force energysing anything - IE: have a wire connected only to the positive, or negative termi

It's on her end of things, and she uses a smartphone to use facebook. She has another facebook account that she logged into to see what I was talking about - her usual account was logged in from her vantage point, too. It's not my computer and it's cookies. Do smartphones have cookies? I don't know squat about smartphones!
