There is also a follow up documentary released in 2016 called Tiny: The Life of Erin Blackwell. I'm sure you can find it online somewhere.

The story goes about as one might expect. She's a recovering addict. Has 10 kids with 5 different fathers, some with their own drug problems.
It might have also gone under the title of Streetwise: Tiny Revisited


This is probably the updated (Criterion edition?) video, but it has a login request which I skipped because it requires a phone number, and it's Russia. . . So.

Alternatively, I found other documentaries that seem interesting as well.

Ahh-Haa! 17:50 it is the suit someone would be wearing when in a casket!







Downfall (2004 WW2 Hitler movie)

Just click it (I initially thought it was a joke. . . Well, it is, but it seems to have actually been created with full seriousness)

Currently watching the Legend (1985) DC (longer) version. It's very evident that the movie inspired The Legend of Zelda.

The only other movie worth watching is Willow. . .

Playlist Up series (age 7 and into old age documentary)



Classic TV Commercials from the '60s and '70s
https://www.facebook.com/10000981609072 ... 98265623/
Some of these were no doubt still playing until the 1990s.

It barely seemed noticeable that this dome was a ride when I visited nearly 20 years ago (it's been there since 1982.)


Looking at photos of it, it seems as though they changed the look of the Pharoah (at apx 3:35), as he resembled Akhenaten in photos (though it might just be the angle https://www.flickr.com/photos/horwath/3 ... 469900396/ )

I mostly just walked around the place and went through the tourist trap mock ups, where I had my first sighting of spelt grains in the German area, at the dining hall.

CC ->Auto-translate





Recently looking back over Robert Blake and the mysterious circumstances of Bonny Lee Bakley.

Some assume Christian Brando (who had previously killed his half-sister's husband who hoped to get out of the Brando circus and who might have been unhinged herself because she was diagnosed as such) who had a relation with Bonny (who with Robert was onto her 10th husband and was a gold digger, which Robert even admits he was worth $40 million and would have done things differently "if he did it,") and yet Christian Brando was in Washington state (though perhaps just an alibi to coverup?) Why had Brando been in contempt of court by refusing to answer any questions, unless he figured his previous reputation with homicide would haunt his chances of an honest jury decision? https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct- ... story.html

Interviews (and it reminds me of Scott Peterson)

That channel explored one of these buildings which was a pretty massive department store. The properties date back 200 years and probably even had Edgar Allan Poe shop there at some point.

Pataphysics Re: What are you watching?

Post by Catoptric » Wed Jul 06, 2022 10:29 am

'Pataphysics (French: pataphysique) is a "philosophy" of science invented by French writer Alfred Jarry (1873–1907) intended to be a parody of science. Difficult to be simply defined or pinned down, it has been described as the "science of imaginary solutions".
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%27Pataphysics






A certain scientific railgun (Toaru Kagaku no Railgun -とある科学の超電磁砲 ) had a PSP game based on the anime, and I never heard of it before.

A spoof of the Godfather


Michael Caan died and I looked into his more well-known movies (outside of the Godfather I and II) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Caan



As he got older he looked surprisingly similar to Gene Hackman which is why I sort of had to do a double-take on who acted in the Superman movie as Lex Luthor, ironically Michael Caan was offered the role of superman which he turned down.

I mostly only remember him as Don Corleone's son, which up to that point he had already been acting for a decade. I had thought maybe he was one of the mafia members that drove by the film set of The Godfather to evaluate whether any of them were using the term "mafia" in the script, and Francis Coppola had won them over and it seems only Luca Brasso character (which was reprised by the original actor in that Italian Godfather spoof) had been. https://www.cinemablend.com/news/249013 ... luca-brasi

Mentions: The diary of Matthew Patten of Bedford, N.H by Patten, Matthew, 1719-1795

https://archive.org/details/diaryofmatthewpa00patt
PDF https://ia800701.us.archive.org/30/item ... 00patt.pdf

A book shown on the bookshelf
The complete works of Robert Burns; containing his poems, songs, and correspondence
https://archive.org/details/completeworksofr07burn

Mentioned in the next video
The diary of Joseph Plumb Martin, a Revolutionary soldier (not a pdf)
https://archive.org/details/diaryofjosephplu0000mart
Academic paper on the topic https://etd.ohiolink.edu/apexprod/rws_e ... ion=inline




I can't remember watching this but it was circa 2005, and still seems relevant to modern business practices.
