Starcops clips — YouTube video

Theme and small clips for a space detective drama from 1987. Way ahead of its time.

The opening theme and the closing theme with credits! Oh. My. God. And some very brief clips from the show itself.

The Greatest SF TV Show Ever.

King Is Dead — YouTube video

Rare Super 8 home movie footage of the making of the end scene from the 1976 version of King Kong.

I think it was in The New York Times. A full-page ad asking for jillions of people to show up for filming of the climactic scene of Dino De Laurentiis‘s King Kong remake. I heeded the call.

As it turned out, I was quoted, anonymously, in the magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland several months later when an article about the filming was published. Oh all right, I hear your cries of anguish; this is what I said that was quoted:

’twas Dino killed the beast!

Yeah, stupid, but memorable (like most things I say!).

Even if you don’t want anything to do with a giant ape, go see this footage for the rare views of the World Trade Center Twin Towers when everything in front of it was nothing but one huge open plaza.

Look closely and watch the cop squeeze Kong’s big thumb!

Paddy Chayefsky‘s brilliance, his magnificent genius, motivates me to embed a YouTube video into this blog for the first time. And probably the last.

Watch it, god damn it!

Of Course, I Will Now Burn For That Last Post

Two of my gods, Philip K. Dick and Charles Baudelaire, both used drugs.

They will not look after me now…

The Farce on the War on Drugs

“Now envision a world where all drugs sell in state-regulated stores, not on street corners by teens which gets them killed. Imagine a world where the federal police focus on securing our borders from armed and unarmed invasion. Envision a world where terrorists don’t buy weapons from money made selling drugs. Imagine a world where felony crime drops over 50 percent and local police focus on drunk drivers, child predators and terrorists. Envision a world where if one day you or a loved one has a drug problem, you see a doctor not a judge. America can have this world, if it repeals its laws of the New Prohibition.”

What? You think the people who are so fucked-up on illegal drugs will be any better being fucked-up on legal drugs? Yeah, civil society will be just so much better when all those people can wrap themselves in the “Well, it’s legal” argument.

The War On Drugs has been bullshit because it’s been fought like bullshit. In nations where there is true zero tolerance and the ruling classes aren’t corrupt and in on the profits, you don’t see teens idolizing drug thugs.

Beemageddon: Organic Bees Not Disappearing

May 11, 2007

Organic Bees Are Thriving
While commercial bee populations are plummeting

Over the past few weeks we have highlighted reports that suggest bee populations are declining at rates of up to 80% in areas of the U.S. and Europe. Experts are calling the worrying trend “colony collapse disorder” or CCD.

While no one can pin point the exact reason as to why bees are declining so rapidly it is interesting to note that no organic bee keepers are reporting losses.

You’re still going to starve to death. Stock up.
