Voyeur house tv movies

I'm a die hard Tarantino fan! And the things i like about his movies are many. Some of them i discuss below. 1.) The music: Each movie has a soundtrack so well suited to that movie that you just can't help but love it. In inglorious basterds, the... Tarantino managed to get a small cameo as an Elvis impersonator on an episode of "The Golden Girls" just as he was starting out in Hollywood. In the episode, he plays one of many Elvis impersonators — if you look closely you can see Tarantino center-left in the beige suit, just behind and to the left of the impersonator with the guitar. Quentin Tarantino has his next several months mapped out. He plans to finish writing a book, do a play, work on a TV series and then figure out what his 10th movie will be, the writer-director told… A retrospective run-through of Tarantino’s films so far, looking into how they play with audience expectations, especially around violence. Reservoir Dogs introduced the audience to Mr. White (Harvey Keitel), Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi), Mr. Blue (Edward Bunker), and Mr. Brown (Tarantino), all part of a heist planned by Joe and Eddie Cabot. As mentioned above, the heist went wrong and it was every man for himself, as it turned out there was an undercover cop among them. (Tarantino loves to play a ‘switcheroo’ on the audience. E.g. the anti-climax of Kill Bill vol 2 following 1’s hyperviolence. His least interesting films are those that indulge in violence without also acting as a commentary on it; see: Django Unchained.) Tarantino repeats this even more blatantly in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. In ... Tarantino shows the audience a substantial chunk of the episode as Rick shoots his scenes, but filming continues for an unnaturally long time, and Tarantino keeps the actual filmmaking apparatus ... While Sharon Tate isn’t one of the most important characters in the movie, Tarantino plays with blocking and composition to get the viewer to follow her everywhere. For example, he dresses her in yellow in the middle of a crowded party, and the camera deliberately draws your attention to the young woman.

Interested in what people here think of this: https://medium.com/@charlieplatts1996/how-tarantino-plays-the-audience-a9ab90647c6 The core thesis is that Tarantino's movies (well, specifically Inglourious Basterds and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood) aren't 'mindless violence' but are commentaries on violence as well, showing the audience will root for bloody violence, while simultaneously condemning the violent actions happening on screen.
The whole thing is here:
The only way I can put into words what Tarantino is doing in Inglourious Basterds is by describing my first time seeing it. Christmas Day 2009: my family’s ‘Christmas Day film’. I didn’t know who Quentin Tarantino was, but I remembered Basterds advertised as a standard Brad Pitt WW2 shoot-em-up (like Fury would be a few years later). Hyperactive teenage me found himself watching a near three hour long movie, made up mostly of dialogue, heavily subtitled, slow-burn pacing with minimal action scenes: I was agitatedly bored and complained to my family throughout. And then the climax came: theatre burning down, audience in chaos, the Basterds bursting in gunning everyone in sight, Nazis on fire, big explosion finale. My uncle turned to me and said, ‘That enough for you?’ Indeed. That’s what I’d been craving.
Which seems to be the exact response Tarantino is looking to illicit. It’s a sort of trick (or trap). Scenes before, Nazi command watched Nation’s Pride, the fictional Nazi propaganda film, Hitler laughing hysterically at every on-screen kill, and we’re right to think he’s deranged, he deserves what’s coming to him. But minutes later the whole thing is flipped. We’re shown our own propagandist wish fulfilment (the Basterds represent amped-up American bravado). The Jews get their bloody revenge, offing Hitler themselves, denying him his ‘coward’s way out’. But this doesn’t change the fact we’re sat watching, and getting a thrill off of, a scene showing a cinema-full of people being gunned and burned to death. Tarantino has said he swapped the costumes of some of the extras playing Germans stuck in the cinema into everyday modern American clothes. Anyone taking this scene too seriously, as a triumphant ‘win’, is cheering for their side being killed too.
Since the ’90s — specifically: since the six year hiatus that bridged Jackie Brown and Kill Bill — Tarantino has played up to his reputation as maker of violent films. Which makes it easy to forget that the ’90s movies weren’t that violent. Most of the violent stuff happens off-screen: in Reservoir Dogs Mr. Blonde’s killing spree is a non-scene the movie circles around; the camera pans away from him cutting off the cop’s ear. (You’ll see more blood in the average action movie.) Tarantino once said to an interviewer, ‘You don’t go to a Metallica concert and ask them to turn the music down.’ And he’s been very happy to turn the music, in this case the violence, up in his films. Here, have as much as you want!
Online I’ve seen the case made that Basterds’ ending is Tarantino subliminally telling his audience he hates them. Or that they’re as bad as the Nazis, caught up in a hedonic voyeurism by the violent perversions on screen. Both unlikely given Tarantino’s love of violent films. Tarantino’s choice of villains is crucial — Nazis, slave-owners, the Manson family. WW2 is the simplest Good vs Evil narrative of the secular world. No wonder it’s constantly used as background fodder for action movies. We laugh at Hitler’s face being mulched up by bullets — it’s a funny image, and it’s Hitler after all, it’s not like you feel bad for the guy — but we’re still laughing the same way he did a few scenes earlier: laughing at violence because we’re inside a (cultural) narrative that justifies this particular violence. The use of such recognisable, and unquestionable, villains is it means we hardly stop to think about the violence being enacted on them.
Basterds certainly isn’t a ‘message movie’ but there’s more than the details of the plot going on here. (I think) Tarantino’s point is it’s not wrong to enjoy violent movies, but it is wrong to support the violence, to think these movies are more than just entertainment. It’s when that line is crossed that something morphs from entertainment to propaganda, and the audience is complicit in it.
(Tarantino loves to play a ‘switcheroo’ on the audience. E.g. the anti-climax of Kill Bill vol 2 following 1’s hyperviolence. His least interesting films are those that indulge in violence without also acting as a commentary on it; see: Django Unchained.)
Tarantino repeats this even more blatantly in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. In scenes placed sporadically throughout the film, and mostly separate from the main Dalton-Booth storyline, we follow Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), scenes showing her getting on with life and enjoying herself. On first viewing these scenes can’t help but stand as omens reminding us of what is coming.
Besides the last scene, and a brutal beating earlier at the Manson Family ranch, there isn’t much violence. It’s a buddy movie, a love letter to filmmaking and Old Hollywood, the most carefully paced Tarantino film since Jackie Brown.
When Hollywood’s premise was first revealed many fans guessed Tate would be the one to kill the Manson Family members who killed her in real life — continuing the trend of historical characters or groups getting their fictional revenge, like in Basterds and Django. But in the film the real timeline is diverted when members of the Family decide they will kill Dalton, and whoever else is in his house, instead, having come to the realisation that their generation is so fucked up and violent because of actors like Dalton glorifying violence on TV and making it look cool.
The final stretch of the film begins with a TV presenter saying (to no one in particular, and so to us), ‘And now, what you’ve been waiting for.’ Which is of course a violent finale. And Tarantino delivers. This last scene, with an acid-tripping Brad Pitt and (crucially) his pet pit bull, is among the best scenes of cinema violence ever. It’s pure unadulterated fun. Dalton finishes things off with a flamethrower from one of his movies, aligning fiction and reality. The movie was a WW2 flick where Dalton burns a room full of Nazis: the clip of it we see earlier brings Basterds to mind, making Dalton, the actor warned about being typecast in violent, villainous roles, a stand-in for Tarantino, for whom the violence of his movies has always overshadowed everything else. But it’s not Dalton who’s the villain for playing violent characters on screen, it’s the Mansons for taking them too damn seriously. In both Basterds and Hollywood the people who take the movies too seriously are killed violently. Fictional violence ‘defeating’ the real violence.
Afterwards, Dalton goes round to meet Sharon and her guests. The title comes on screen, a big What if? — Tarantino has given us another image of filmic wish fulfilment. It’s a twisted fantasy, sure, but certainly better than the reality. It’s a happy alternate reality where Tate gets to live and have her child and keep making movies. Of course it can’t help being bittersweet, because it underlines what unalterably happened. Some critics and viewers criticised the film for using Tate merely as a plot device; she has few lines of dialogue throughout, making her seem like little but a tease for the ending. But then Tarantino doesn’t even give her her bloody revenge. He has her go to parties, go to the cinema and watch her own movie with a cheering audience, dance round the house. Even if it’s just fantasy, we’re here for fantasy anyway so here’s a nice one. But Tarantino gives us the gorefest too — because he knows us, knows we’re all too bloodthirsty and jaded and ADD to accept a movie just about an innocent woman getting to enjoy her life; and he was right, most people ignore that part of the film entirely, or think it’s pointless or unneeded, filler on the way to the good stuff, and he puts the two side by side to prove it.

Ulysses' testimony at the Monster trial
By Francesco Amicone
The voyeur, the Sardinians, and the farmer
Sant'Angelo is a hamlet on the edge of Calenzano and Sesto Fiorentino: very few houses surrounded by fields and mountains. Not far from there, in a rural crossroads of the only way that goes around the valley, an inscription on a stone cross recalls two names: Susanna Cambi and Stefano Baldi. They were a young couple from Calenzano used to withdraw in the evening on the edge of an olive grove. On the night of October 22, 1981, they were shot to death by the man who went down in history as the "Monster of Florence", a brutal murderer who killed at least seven young couples in the Florentine countryside with a .22 caliber gun between 1974 and 1985 (here’s an explanation of why I do not mention the 1968 case TLN).
More than thirty years have passed since those crimes, but the flowers at the foot of the cross that reminds Susanna and Stefano are still fresh. «It's nice that people haven't forgotten about Susanna and Stefano,» comments Edoardo Orlandi in front of their memorial. Orlandi was already a researcher of the "Monster" case before becoming a criminologist at the University of Florence. Like many Tuscans born in the '80, Orlandi grew up in an environment where the serial killer became an integral part of the history of the city through the trials of the '90. None of which came to any definitive truth about the main perpetrator of the murders. «Very few Florentines believe that the Monster has never really been identified,» notes Orlandi.
Crazy and wily
Law enforcement officers do not immediately understand that they are facing a serial killer. «Only the morning after the Calenzano crime - Orlandi recalls - the Florentine people realize that there was a homicidal maniac who goes hunting for alone couples on moonless nights. And that time the murderer also frightened the Tuscan public opinion which, in a somewhat picturesque way, to play down, had called him "Cicci, the monster of Scandicci”.»
From October 22, 1981, what a few months earlier seemed to have been the work of a schizophrenic drifter takes on new meaning. «The inhabitants of Florence are faced with a socially organized person, whose disturbances, however serious, allow him to act in a cold and lucid manner,» Orlandi explains. He was a madman, not a schizophrenic. The police now faced something that in Italy, before then, had only been seen in movies. An American-style serial killer. One of the shrewdest minds that Italian investigators have ever found themselves fighting and also, the criminologist stresses, «one of the very few serial killers who have been successful.»
From the day he committed the Calenzano crime and for five long years, the "maniac" armed with a torch, pistol, and knife, who had nothing in common with the Florentine or Italian chronicles, became the main news of the local newspapers.
A "provincial" killer
«Although he’s called the Monster of Florence - Orlandi recalls - the crimes claimed by the homicidal maniac never took place in the city but in the neighboring villages.» Borgo San Lorenzo, Scandicci, Calenzano, Galluzzo, Vicchio, Baccaiano, Falciani. These are the names of the crime locations chosen by the serial killer. «These are small courtyards, where the chatter about the crimes quickly made the rounds of the bars,» the criminologist says. This created many problems.
Enzo Spalletti, an ambulance driver, was the first man who pays for a slip of his tongue. Spalletti practiced a "sport" very popular in the province of Florence in the eighties: spying on couples sitting alone in their cars. During the night, dozens of people searched the countryside of Florence to find couples who made love in their car. They lurked along the rows of cypresses, in the acacia woods, armed with infrared binoculars and microphones to caught couples in their privacy. Many of them met in the Chianti taverns the following day to exchange photographs and audio recordings.
«On the morning of 7 June 1981, Spalletti hoed his vegetable garden, then went to his favorite bar, where he told the patrons that he had seen the bodies of the two victims of Scandicci. He was immediately arrested». How did it end? «Three months later the killer struck again in Calenzano, leading to the release of Spalletti and virtually announcing to the Florentines: "You are facing a real serial killer, not a voyeur". The Monster would continue to claim his crimes with the same gun also in the following years, freeing one by one all the suspects sent in prison by the pre-trial judges. «He would only stop in 1985 when no one was jailed for his murders. It’s like he wanted to say to the police: "I don't need your help",» Orlandi observes.
Monster's gun
The so-called "Sardinian lead” ended up in a general acquittal, in 1989. Seven years earlier, about July 20, 1982, the detectives began to follow the track left by the Monster from bullets and shells found in a case-file of a double murder near Florence accrued in a “Sardinian” environment (Barbara Locci and Antonio Lo Bianco - August 22, 1968). The marks on the shells were identical to those found on the crime scenes of the serial killer from 1974 onwards. The man convicted for the crime of ‘68, Barbara Locci's husband, Stefano Mele, was in prison in 1974, however.
You can have doubts about the authorship of the crime of 1968, «but as regards Mele's responsibility - recalls Orlandi - it is a fact that Locci's husband had been found with the fat spread on his hands, the morning after the crime. Mele - continues the criminologist - has never been able to give a reason for what appeared to the investigators of the time as a banal attempt to deceive the paraffin glove (test to which Mele was positive).» Mele charged himself with the crime, then accused acquaintances. Finally, he was sentenced. Beginning in 1982 it was therefore thought that the serial killer might somehow have had access to the gun used in the ‘68 murders and used it later. All the people who may have participated in the ‘68 crime were arrested one by one: Francesco Vinci, Piero Mucciarini, Giovanni Mele. Salvatore Vinci was also arrested with another excuse. Nothing was found.
From the real killer to Pietro Pacciani
Who is really the “couple maniac”? What personality is hidden behind the mask he wears for his audience? The Monster, according to Orlandi, «most likely appears as a normal person, otherwise, it would not be explained why it has never been possible to identify him up to now.» «He is a person with two lives - the criminologist explains - in the normal one, he is a citizen like the others, in the secret one, he is the maniac of moonless nights.» Perhaps this is one of those very rare cases in which criminologists face someone who embodies the protagonist of Robert Louis Stevenson, the famous "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". The Monster seems to flaunt two faces also in his crimes. «On the one hand, he is the practical, efficient and smart person, self-confident who leaves no traces and clues; on the other one, it is the maniac who takes very high risks to respect his crazy rituals and challenge investigators,» Orlandi says.
The criminological expertise of a team of the University of Modena drawn up by Francesco De Fazio, Ivan Galliani, Salvatore Luberto in 1984 describes the Monster as "methodical", "systematic", "cautious", "astute". However, the experts point out that the Monster suffers from a serious psychic pathology, which reaches the peak of the acute phase when he kills. «The exceptional nature of this serial killer - underlines Orlandi, paraphrasing the expertise of the University of Modena - is that he completes his ambushes in a situation of strong emotional charge. Yet, in this phase of acute psychosis, he is capable of modulating strength, approaching victims in silence, shooting and hitting, moving bodies, and mutilating them. He also managed to quickly change weapons and torch in the dark. All this without making mistakes.»
«The Monster - Orlandi concludes - is a maniac who moves between Mugello and Chianti with the same security as a hitman.»
A man light years away from the depicted suspect was the result of the "super-computer" screening with which the Florence prosecutor led by Pier Luigi Vigna comes to Pietro Pacciani.
Where are the killer's "souvenirs"?
In 1990, the Florence Police Anti-Monster Squad (SAM) was still looking for the manic perpetrator of the seven double murders that occurred in the Florentine countryside between 1974 and 1985. A few years earlier, in an anonymous letter, an alleged Monster had warned the investigators: «You won't take me if I don't want to ... I'm very close to you.» Authentic Monster’s letter or not, it confirmed the impression of the SAM agents. The killer had always been one step ahead of them. As if he knew their moves in advance. Besides, why hadn't the fake couples, the police and Carabinieri blocks, the investigation, or the arrests been able to stop him? What had given the Monster the security to be able to challenge the city and the police, always acting in the same period, every year, for five consecutive years? How had he managed to plan his crimes in an area on high alert, strewn with Chianti and Mugello with euphemistic signs "Danger: risk of aggressions"? How was it possible that, despite the precautions and resources used, despite the 300 million Lire bounty (300.000 $) - the only one ever issued by the Italian State - the killer had escaped capture?
So, when Florentines discovered that the main suspect of the Florence Prosecutor's Office was Pierino Pacciani, a peasant, the "young wicked boy" whose minstrel Giubba sang at village fairs for his crime of passion of 40 years before, people shake their heads. It will take all the efforts of the mass media to make it possible for a larger minority of Florentines to accept that Vampa (blaze) - as he was nicknamed in the village - is the icy murderer who had terrorized the city for shine and from whom the citizens still feel threatened. But the prosecutors led by Vigna were certain: Pacciani was the Monster.
When investigations into Pacciani begin, Ruggero Perugini, Sam's chief, has just returned from Quantico, home of the FBI Behavioral Science Unit - the world specialists in the "serial murder" discipline. Roy Hazelwood, the guru of the unit, had warned the Italian detective: «If you find these trinkets, it means that you have found the killer.» Hazelwood had shown Perugini some objects that criminals like the Monster of Florence jealously guard. Criminologists call it "booty". These are the personal belongings of the victims that serial killers steal to remember and claim their murders. To date, nothing of the sort has ever been found.
The selection
It had been the voyeur's turn, then the Sardinians’ one. The defendant, this time, was a son and grandson of sharecroppers. His red face well known in San Casciano testified that the farmer had nothing of the cold and wily serial killer. At the trial, one of the witnesses would say that you could mistake him for the «god Bacchus» if you observed him serving wine at a Festa dell’Unità in the 1980s. Yet the prosecution had made a commitment to find someone who would tell something compatible with the accusatory picture (a serial murderer, calm, lucid, and above all sober). Maybe Pacciani terrified someone in San Casciano? Not even this. It was discovered that the Vampa had not only given them (the beatings) but he had also taken many, and many: a beating in 1951 by Giampiero Vigilanti, former French legionary of Prato; many handbags from "Cinzia", ​​a prostitute who walked between the Via Scopeti and Cassia, in San Casciano, near the Florence American Cemetery; a few slaps from the gamekeeper Gino Bruni, whom Pacciani had threatened with a pitchfork. These stories, however, appear to be more authentic than the "scientific" analyzes of Pacciani's "secret" personality which was shown in the newspapers during the trial period.
The former Florence attorney general, Piero Tony - who represented the accusation against Pacciani in the appeal trial- asked for Pacciani's acquittal and obtained it. Twenty years later, he still has the same idea about Vampa's guilt as his lawyers Rosario Bevacqua and Pietro Fioravanti: «Pacciani was a man who committed many crimes in his life, but he was not the Monster,» Tony says.
The former Florence attorney general has always criticized the method that the Public Prosecutor's Office decided to use to arrive at the identity of the Monster: «The mechanism by which attention was focused on Pacciani - says Tony - was the following: between many things, it was assumed that the serial killer had attracted someone's attention; then, that he had a dirty criminal record and was resident in the province of Florence.» «Pacciani - continues the former prosecutor - had been reported by an anonymous letter, had a criminal record (he had killed a man in 1951 and had abused his daughters for years), lived in San Casciano and was not in jail when the Monster had killed. It was therefore deduced that Pacciani could be the serial killer.» «This mechanism - explains Tony - has not been fully respected. According to the parameters that the investigators had given themselves the name of Pacciani must have been off the list of suspects. For two reasons: he did not respect - at all - the profile drawn up by criminologists; at the time of the crimes he was not healthy (he had suffered a heart attack).»
The “hunchback” bullet
For some reason, the idiom "farmer: big shoes and clever mind" was heralded by the press lined up with the Public Prosecutor's Office as an indication of guilt in a serial murder case. It was forgotten that the syllogism made all people with work boots and an above-average IQ suspicious. Not just the farmers. But also - for example - the man from whom Pacciani felt "persecuted". It was this «long-legged intellectual» who had prevented him from entering the house of an old fortune-teller in the village. Or the mysterious man who stalked him in nightmares, the "General of Death". And also the character in military clothes and with "Mickey Mouse" military boots, which appeared in a drawing by the Chilean artist Christian Olivares, a sketch of a theatrical scenography for the filmmaker Raphael Ruiz that was found in the Vampa’s house.
Pacciani had renamed the work of Olivares: «Dream of fairy science (instead of “science fiction”), summer in San Casciano.» He had put his signature on the bottom and put the painting above the fireplace in the living room. The psychologists heard by the prosecutor's office did not see in it a denunciation of the Pinochet regime - which in fact it was - but the work of a deranged, a sexual maniac suffering from serious disturbances. The famous critic Vittorio Sgarbi, having heard that the Florence Public Prosecutor's Office attributed the hand of a follower of Salvador Dalì to Vampa, obviously took the ball for one of his reprimands. The real author - in voluntary exile in the Canaries - sent a fax to La Repubblica, explaining the meaning of drawing to psychologists. Vampa simply shrugged: «I always said I just colored it.»
In early 1993, not even Perugini seemed to be certain of Pacciani's guilt. While investigating the farmer from San Casciano, the chief of the SAM had publicly appealed to a still faceless serial killer. Perugini had offered him a hand to «get out of the nightmare.» How did the Monster react to the appeal? A few months later, in April, during a search, the detectives found a 22-caliber bullet in the farmer's garden of Pacciani (this bullet had been forged, a Prosecutor’s Office expertise found out in 2019 – here’s the news TLN).
«A “hunchbacked” nail?» Vampa asked while Perugini showed him the artifact. It was not a "nail", but a “hunchbacked” bullet, a misshapen cartridge similar to what the Monster had left on crime scenes. Was stuck in a stake in the farmer's vineyard. Right at the breaking point of a stake broken for less than a week.
It was necessary to wait for the appeal trial for the Court and the Prosecutor to be informed informally by the defense expert, Enrico Manieri, that that bullet was a "fake": he had been loaded on a weapon other than that of the killer. The conclusion was obvious: someone had wanted to frame Pacciani.
«An infamous column»
«Before the trial, we also received an anonymous letter. A guide rod of a Beretta was attached - Tony says - The author of the letter said that it had been buried by the Vampa, “a devil who enchants the fools on TV”. But even that was an indication of little value, as well as of dubious origin».
Regarding this “gift”, the president of the Court that acquitted Pacciani at the Appeal, Francesco Ferri - a magistrate who continued to be inspired by the books by Alessandro Manzoni and the Verri brothers also at the time of Tangentopoli - observed that if the guide rode was one of the 48 parts of the supposed Beretta that would be buried by Pacciani at various points in the campaign, the prosecutor Paolo Canessa and his team of investigators would have had to unearth another 47 parts before holding the whole proof. «Have you at least found the map?» Ferri ironized in his book “The Pacciani’s trial, an infamous column?”.The accusatory picture that the prosecutor Canessa had brought to court collapsed piece by piece at the Appeal. Among the most important ones was the Giuseppe Bevilacqua’s testimony. He was a former criminal investigator of the U.S. Army and the superintendent of the Florence American Cemetery, at the time of the Monster's crimes.
Lawyers from the US Embassy in Rome had warned him about Italian justice. Joe - that’s what he called himself - could get into a mess. He benefitted from diplomatic immunity granted for international courtesy to the technical personnel of the American mission, why take the risk?
The Repubblica article “Pacciani was in the woods” by Franca Selvatici, on 7 June 1994, signed also reports that the official of the American Battle Monuments Commission was very busy on 6 June 1994. On the day of his deposition, he would have to go to the D-Day ceremony which also attended by President Bill Clinton. Bevilacqua decided to make his contribution to the inquiry on the serial murders of the couples, despite everything.
“Joe“ told the Court in an Italian-American slang what he had seen near the scene of the Monster’s latest crime, which took place between 6 and 8 September 1985 in Via Scopeti, San Casciano. The place was located 300 meters as the crow flies from the cemetery, where he lived.
In his deposition at the Pacciani trial - the audio recording is available at radioradicale.it - Bevilacqua claims to have seen the French victim Nadine Mauriot in a “black bikini” while sunbathing under the pines of Via Scopeti. He saw her again, the next day, in the place where she would be killed a few hours later. In the same period of time, he spotted a man whom he then recognized as Pacciani about 500 hundred meters. He was walking at the edge of the woods, near a path that led to the crime scene. The dogs, Bevilacqua claims, barked fiercely that night.
The superintendent of the Florence American Cemetery says he doesn’t know Pacciani. At that point, a dispute arises over the height of Vampa which leads to a confrontation between the accuser and the accused. The two are brought together. They huddle. The scene ended with the astonished words of the counselor Bevacqua: «They are very similar, Your Honor!». Pacciani's lawyer highlighted how difficult it could be to distinguish two unknown people who look alike. When Bevilacqua then insists on claiming that he learned of the murders since the following morning of the crime (the news had not yet been released), his memory is believed to be flawed. That's where it ends.
After a first condemnation, the Vampa was acquitted: «Pacciani - judge Ferri writes - is condemned at first instance without the necessary proofs, on the basis of dialectical tricks, obvious illogicality, speculations, and mere invectives». Ferri resigned as a judge in controversy with the magistrate order and calling the entire trial of Pacciani “an infamous column “. The acquittal will be canceled by the Supreme Court, but the farmer will die before a second appeal trial, on February 22, 1997.
The companions of snacks
Giancarlo Lotti, called “Katanga”, did not go back even when he was wrong. The fact that he did not even have a primary school certificate is one of the reasons why he had to beg for food and accommodation on a daily basis. However, at fifty he still said: «The school is useless.» Lotti would not go back on his decisions, not even on the testimony on the alleged “monsters” of Florence.
At the beginning of 1996, Pacciani was about to be acquitted, the State - usually absent in this case - arrived at Lotti's house (that is, from the priest who hosts him) offering him real accommodation and a salary. In return, Katanga had only one thing to do: become the famous witness who defeated the Monster of Florence. Lotti knew Pacciani. He knew he was a violent individual. And then he was stingy: he had never given him a penny in his life. This is how Lotti, who had no money for gasoline or wine, accepted and began to “sing”.There is a reason why Katanga is the Beta and not the Alpha witness: his testimony is later than that of his friend of “tours”, Fernando Pucci. The Alfa witness, Pucci, is the origin of the theory of the “Companions of snacks”.
In January 1996, Pucci reported to the SAM led by Michele Giuttari at the time that he and his friend Lotti had seen Pacciani in Scopeti on September 8, 1985. They were driving in Lotti's (uninsured) car. They had stopped at the pitch where the French were to urinate, then - Pucci recalled - he felt one, two shots, and went to see that he was there. In the video filmed at the trial, the images following the moment when Pucci told this story, focus on his friend Katanga, in the Court House, who raised his hand and said: «I told Fernando those things.» The story that Pucci has just told was invented: it was not at Scopeti. And Pucci himself immediately confirmed the words of his friend: «Yes, Lotti told me about these things.» It was now clear to the whole Court that the certificate of oligophrenia (or dementia) of the Tuscany Region that Pucci had exhibited before testifying had been given to him for a reason.
Former prosecutor Tony comments on the decision to bring Alfa and Beta to trial as follows: «Let's forget Pucci, who - poor fellow - had a mental illness. I remember, however, that when Lotti's name came out, the priest who had him in charge called to the Prosecutor's Office to warn us not to listen to him.» Yet, Beta would be the pillar (the only one, after Alfa's exploit) of the theory of the so-called “Companions of snacks”, a group composed of the farmer Pacciani, the illiterate Lotti and the postman Mario Vanni, called Torsolo, who would have killed the couples.
«Neither Torsolo nor Katanga knew how to shoot,» Tony observes, «and none of them had the physique or mind of the serial killer. Not even Pacciani.» None of them, in the dark, with a demijohn of red wine in their stomachs, could have hit to death two young germans, Horst Wilhelm Meyer and Jens-Uwe Rüsch, through the plates of a Volkswagen minibus, on September 9, 1983.
«Lotti has made several mistakes in reconstructing the dynamics of the murders - concludes Tony -. Sometimes his lies are hateful. Like when on the ‘84 crime, in which Pia Rontini and Claudio Stefanacci lost their lives, he says that the girl died screaming and moaning. But all the forensic doctors' reports say that Pia immediately lost consciousness.»
The scientific proof of Lotti's lies
«It is a historical fact that in the trial of the “Companions of snacks” there was not a single evidence of guilt that supported Lotti's testimonies”, says Nino Filastò, at the time lawyer of Mario Vanni. But there is scientific evidence to the contrary. One of these was found by a certain “De Gothia”. Behind this nickname hid a brilliant “mostrologist” who for years dedicated himself to the study of the crimes of the Monster, divulging his investigations in publications on the web. De Gothia demolished Lotti's testimony starting from an image taken by Ennio Macconi, photographer of La Nazione, on June 22, 1982, in the aftermath of the crime “number 4” of the Monster. The photograph captures the victims’ car, kidnapped in the parking lot of the Carabinieri di Signa, and scientifically proves that Lotti simply “copied” the investigators' version. But he saw nothing.
The Fiat 147 in which Paolo Mainardi and Antonella Migliorini were killed in 1982 had been found by rescuers and law enforcement officers a few minutes after the crime, in a drainage canal that flanked the road, on the opposite side to where the victims had parked. The driver's door was locked.
The investigators and Lotti have always claimed that the “Companions of snacks” attacked the couple and, therefore, that Paolo, in an attempt to escape, ended up off the road in reverse with the car. Things did not turn out that way. De Gothia promptly dismantles the official reconstruction of the crime, based on the law of gravity. In the photograph taken by Macconi to the car of the victims, a drop of blood appears clearly perpendicular to the ground on the lower part of the driver's door, at the height of the seal. Blood dripped onto the hull while the car was level and the door was open. The car, however, was found in an oblique position and with the door closed and locked. As the blood thickens in six long minutes, the victims could only have been mortally wounded when the killer had closed the car door. Evidently, concluded De Gothia, it was the Monster, not Mainardi, who had driven the car out of the pitch, making a mistake and ending up in the canal. Angrily throwing the car keys and wasting three bullets - as the Monster did - one per headlight and one on the windshield, after such a slip, was certainly more logical than doing it before having killed the couple in the spot.
Lotti lied. This is scientific proof. Not as objectionable as they were, in the Court's opinion, the other six testimonies of that evening which contradicted the Beta’s version.
The companions’ motor pool
According to Lotti's words, he and his acquaintances moved through the streets of Mugello and Chianti with a little fleet of cars to plan and carry out their crimes. «According to Lotti, on the evening of June 19, 1982, two cars were parked along the straight stretch of Via Virginio Nuova,» says Francesco Cappelletti, writer and specialist of the Monster case, «but nobody has seen them. How is it possible?».
Via Virginio is a strip of asphalt that runs for kilometers in the Chianti countryside. The point where Mainardi's car was found is at the center of a stretch hundreds of meters long and without crossbeams, apart from a closed alley. «And still», Cappelletti comments, «there are five eyewitnesses who did not see the Companions of Snacks’ cars that evening». «The cars the witnesses drove - the writer continues - proceeded from the two opposite directions of the road. They noticed the victims’ Fiat 147 before and after it fell in the canal, but not the two cars described by Lotti. The interval of witnesses’ sighting is a few minutes. If none of them saw one of the Companions of Snacks, nor did they ever cross one of their cars, it is because Lotti lied».
To support the fact that Lotti has told a lie, in addition to the force of gravity and the eyes of the five witnesses who saw the crime scene that evening immediately before and after the aggression, there is a sixth witness, Lorenzo Allegranti, the stretcher bearer who rescued the two victims. Allegranti has always claimed that the boy dying was in the back seat and not on the front seat of the car, where instead he should have been, according to Lotti's story. Allegranti's testimony was ignored by the Court which condemned Lotti and Vanni as accomplishes of a supposed Monster (Pietro Pacciani, who died before another trial). The definitive sentence of the Court of Florence transformed the serial killer of the couples, lonely, cold and calculating, who successfully challenged the police, in a grotesque combination of the cultured and secular “black soul” of Florence, and a bunch of patrons from the “Taverna del Diavolo” of Scandicci who killed on the commission of some Masonic lodge.
Italian Authorities in the ’90 and 2000s had gradually passed from an investigation on a murderer on whom all criminological science pointed (and points) to the search of a large community of sinners, without ever reaching the real culprit. It is no coincidence that the only existing “procedural truth” to date is that no one was found definitively guilty as main responsible for the crimes charged to the Monster of Florence. «The serial killer, if he is alive, is still at large,» Cappelletti comments.
This inquiry continues here.

2020.06.08 01:09 Hellion000 [MF4MF] [MF4F] [MF4T] (45/35) (Brazoria, Harris, and Galveston Counties)

Hello Harris, Brazoria, and Galveston Counties!

White couple here, with a mid 40's male and a mid 30's female. We're both open minded and eager to have fun. We're on here looking for exactly that: fun. Neither of us are particularly the dress up and go out type. In fact, we're the opposite. We're the jeans and tee shirts, hanging out at the house, having drinks and chatting type.

She is somewhat slow to warm up to new people, but once she gets going she doesn't turn off for a while. She's a huge fan of thicker ladies, and definitely enjoys a bountiful ass. Her type for guys is a lot harder to define, and tends to fall into the "I know it when I see it" sort of category. She's short and thick herself, but carries an attitude and capacity for fun that more than exceeds her height. Get a little honey whiskey in her? She's off the rails.

He's very sociable, and always willing to spend a length of time chatting and just enjoying the dynamics of a good conversation. His optimal type for women is, like many men, "breathing". He does have a tendency towards tits, tits, tits, but not falling into that category isn't a limit. He is much more interested in the depths of your kinks and not your looks. Where men are concerned, he's much more likely to want to spend time hanging out with guys that fall into the "nerdy, but cool" model.

Outside of the bedroom they both enjoy video games, social drinks, sci fi/fantasy movies and TV shows, and a truly absurd range of music. Both smoke cigarettes, and she will often enjoy the Devil's cabbage. He will not, due to a very unfortunate allergy.

Inside the bedroom they both enjoy the concepts of open-mindedness and experimentation. They both enjoy voyeurism and exhibitionism, dirty role playing, watersports (it's cool if you're not, though), and a few other kinks we can discuss later.

She is very interested in the sorts of combinations two men and a woman can manage: spit roasting, and both double vaginal and vaginal/anal penetration. She's not only interested in experiencing it, but also watching another woman experience it. She also enjoys light impact play, bondage, and taking a more submissive role to men while being more dominant towards women.

Hard limits can be discussed, but the big one is single males.

Please allow me to reiterate that last! With one specific caveat, no amount of thinking that you're unique, special, or well equipped enough to change her mind will work. That one caveat? If you're willing to take it in the ass, she'll consider you.

Both work retail and that means our schedules are... interesting. For simplicity sake, assume our available time to get out and have fun is after nine PM Tuesday through Saturday, and any time Sunday and Monday.

Pictures are available on request.

2020.05.17 01:28 Chazzyphant L Word OG: S02, EP 04 (Lynch Pin) Fashion, Style, and Clothing recap and breakdown!

Babies, it has been ages!! I apologize, time got away from me.
Let's get INTO it shall we?
First I'd like to point out that this episode has a distinct 1970's Hollywood movie flavor to it (which I LOVE). There's some shots that just are so...Robert Altman does 70's Hollywood.
Opening scene:
We meet Helena!
This Roland Moulet like creation is the most high end and clearly couture/designer like outfit we've EVER seen so far. It's explained later on that Helena's in NYC, and this office + the costuming bear that out: it's all muted dark neutrals, sleek, tailored outfits, and a very 1970's Wall Street feeling. I personally LOVE it. Helena's shrink in very sophisticated brown and black. Don't @ me I actually think Helena's dress is very overdesigned and too sexxxxy by half but it gets the message across loud and clear.
Her office really puts me in mind of early 80's movies like "Fatal Attraction" or "St. Elmo's Fire"--there was a "sunlight in the dust motes" lived-in, naturalistic feeling with tons of life-like and realistic props in these movies. I'm not 100% sure what that's saying about the show but this is the most self-consciously "Hollywood" and most "meta" episode the show has done yet, with tons of either deliberate or received influences that range from Woody Allen to 1970's sitcoms to Ridley Scott movies and Bonnie and Clyde. Plus a few hints of a terrific movie about Hollywood: "The Player", a movie I think had strong influences on this show in many ways.
Alice wears a top with three embroidered strawberries on it in her other scene she wears a SUPER cute vintage style day dress in a white floral with lace edges. These are the most girlish, twee, and hetero things she's ever worn!
I'm going to do something a little different this time from this point, which is just flow through all the references from a costuming and set/props/blocking/staging POV:
There's a thread of classic movie scenes running through this episode: the bar pickup by a disenchanted and tired businessperson still in their suit the crowded blue toned streets of NYC at dusk, the single girl in her smart little outfit and carrying her briefcase approaches the intimidatingly luxurious offices of the "purse" the semi-nude couple bathed in golden light and reclined like classic antique statues (Peggy and her paramour), the skinny dipping scene, the reveal of a voyeur (Rear Window), a man lighting a cigarette for a broken hearted girl in a now-useless and sadly hopeful white lace dress, , the uncomfortable two-shot "therapy" couch, the 1940's "back lot" behind the scenes shot, the whipped cream and paneled wood interior of a big shot's "house" (The producer's trailer in this case) and a of course "the date at an amusement park"---where we see Alice acting very stereo-typically feminine and girly in her vintage dress!
Side note:
I'd also like to point out these chonky single stone cocktail rings that I swear someone on production or close to the costumer must have made because they appeared and everyone was wearing them on the show!
Side note: It looks like either Mia or the character had already cut her hair at least to shoulder or slightly longer length here, as she no longer has the sheet of jet black hair reaching to her waist!
Okay so what do we think?!?! This episode is the start of many plot lines I personally hate: Helena as a character, the weird Jenny and Carmen BS, the Mark the Snoop stuff, Kit getting involved with a married man self help guru, Tina couch hopping and her and Bette really being separated, and Alice and Dana's drawn out cheating (which as much as I like both characters, find really indefensible).
Is the major level up in fashion worth the yelling at your TV? chime in!

2019.10.02 23:11 ImADudeDuh Voyeur house tv movies

NOVEMBER 10, 2019 EDIT Hello! Today is the official last day for the rate, however, if you need a couple days to do the rate, you can PM me and ask for an extension. Extentsions will be able to go until this Tuesday.
NOVEMBER 13, 2019 EDIT The rate is officially closed! Join us November 15th at 4 pm PST, November 16th at 11 am PST, and November 17th at 11 am for the reveal!
Hello fellow depressed people! Thank you for joining me and FranklyTheTurtle for enjoying the Mid 2010's Synth Pop Rock Rate!!! We will be rating Strange Desire by Bleachers, Every Open Eye by CHVRCHES, and finally, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it [takes breath] by The 1975. Each of these albums are known for their combination of pop rock and synth pop. Some definitely lean more into one aspect than others, but all are incredible records that really should be enjoyed. Whether you're a fan of all of these records, one of them, or maybe even none of them, we both think you'll all find something great about each one of them and hope you give them a fair chance!
TL;DR, HERE’S THE SPOTIFY PLAYLIST AND HERE’S WHERE YOU SUBMIT YOUR SCORES
Bleachers - Strange Desire Our first album is by a band that has already won a rate! Bleachers (deservedly) won the Moody 2017 Band Rate with Don't Take The Money. Strange Desire is an album that lead singer Jack Antonoff has often described as being inspired by the angst and color of John Hughes' movies. Strange Desire is filled to the brim with meaningful lyrics and very emotive performances by Jack. Whether it's the rush of introspection on I Wanna Get Better or the outpouring of love on You're Still a Mystery, you can always expect energy, emotion, and some personal lyrics about confusion, loss, regret, and anything else that'll keep you awake at night. The album is a little rough around the edges, but that helps give it character and shows how raw the album truly is.

  1. Wild Heart
  2. Rollercoaster
  3. Shadow
  4. I Wanna Get Better
  5. Wake Me
  6. Reckless Love
  7. Take Me Away (ft. Grimes)
  8. Like a River Runs
  9. You're Still a Mystery
  10. I'm Ready to Move On/Wild Heart Reprise (ft. Yoko Ono)
  11. Who I Want You to Love
CHVRCHES - Every Open Eye Our next album is also by a band who has won a rate! CHVRCHES won the Indiepop Rate three years ago with The Mother We Share. Every Open Eye is the second album from the Scotish indiepop trio, released in 2015. The album follows many of the themes of their debut, mainly relationships and heartbreak. Every Open Eye, however, is more refined and much more slick than their last album. The production and the writing has become sharper than before, and it shows, especially on songs like Leave a Trace and Afterglow. The writing paints great pictures of anger and sorrow from a relationship that failed, even showing both sides of it in songs like High Enough To Carry You Over. Every Open Eye is the cleanest of the three albums, but it still manages to retain it's humanity and emotion.
  1. Never Ending Circles
  2. Leave a Trace
  3. Keep You on My Side
  4. Make Them Gold
  5. Clearest Blue
  6. High Enough to Carry You Over
  7. Empty Threat
  8. Down Side of Me
  9. Playing Dead
  10. Bury It
  11. Afterglow
  12. Get Away
  13. Follow You
  14. Bow Down
  15. Warning Call (Theme from Mirror's Edge Catalyst)
The 1975 - i like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it Our last album is from The 1975, Who was also in a Rate before... I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is an album full of punch-your-tv obnoxiously terrible high pitched vocals singing unconvincing emo lyrics it is an album full of frustration, love, introspection and narcissism. Ditching the black and white of their last album they go for something much more bright and much more 80's. From the Sunday morning choir anthem "If I Believe You" to the shoegazy trance that is "Lostmyhead" to the dripping shades of pop perfection with "The Sound" to soul crushing indie pop in "Somebody Else" This is The 1975 at their most eclectic and vibrant fine tuning their mythos and aesthetic they have built purely for themselves. I like it when you sleep... Is a mosaic of passions that are stained in the soft pink neon glow of city lights that shine through stained glass windows and on nascent bedroom walls that have been left empty in favor of cleaning up a bottle of red wine that was shattered during dinner.
  1. The 1975
  2. Love Me
  3. Ugh!
  4. A Change of Heart
  5. She's American
  6. If I Believe You
  7. Please Be Naked
  8. Lostmyhead
  9. The Ballad of Me and My Brain
  10. Somebody Else
  11. Loving Someone
  12. I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It
  13. The Sound
  14. This Must Be My Dream
  15. Paris
  16. Nana
  17. She Lays Down
Bonus Rate We could rate different songs from throwaway singles, covers, collabs, soundtracks, etc. and then when you're racing to finish the rate, you realize you have the bonus rate left so you don't even have time for it. But you know what? Fuck that. Let's add some extra fun into this bonus rate. And guess what? You won't even need to listen to any extra songs to have some fun with the bonus rate!
When you think of all these albums, you think of synth pop, introspect, amazing vocals, stunning hooks, and aesthetic as fuck things. But, what about if you just think about titles of the albums? That's right, this bonus rate is inspired by the bonus rate of the 2015 Alt Pop Rate by Therokinrolla and 1998tweety! Each title has different ways of interpreting it into unusual things we can rate, so we decided to go with some of the weirdest and best categories of things. Also, you have to do the main rate to do this bonus rate. We ain't making any exceptions for anyone. Anyway, Category Is... (I mean Categories are)
Fetishes (Strange Desire) 1. Foot Fetish 2. Bondage 3. Voyeurism 4. Role Play 5. Tentacles 6. Cuckholding 7. Vore 8. Masochism 9. Sadism 10. Forniphilia 11. Asphyxiation
Forms of Visual Media (Every Open Eye) 1. Typography 2. Informational Graphs 3. Animated Cartoons 4. Photography 5. Motion Pictures (movies) 6. Television 7. Video Games 8. Art 9. Music Videos 10. Pornography 11. Theater
Common Dreams (i like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it) 1. Falling 2. Teeth Falling Out 3. Going to School Naked 4. Taking Tests 5. Dying 6. Lucid Dreaming 7. Being Chased 8. Flying 9. Being Pregnant 10. Driving an Out-Of-Control Vehicle 11. Seeing Carly Rae Jepsen murder a man in a dark alley at night, and she comes up to you and tells you, "If you tell anyone about this, I'm not releasing my cancelled disco album, Disco Sweat." You nod to her in agreement (duh) and she smiles at you and hands you a bloody knife. The cops roll up and you are arrested for the murder of the man, later revealed to be Kevin Jonas. While in court, you are faced with the dilemma of taking the fall for Carly, or, never getting the opportunity to hear Disco Sweat in high-quality audio (cause you listened to the leak already, but that was only 3 songs and one snippet at like 128 kbps).
Again, the bonus rate is OPTIONAL, you do NOT need to complete it to send in scores
Da Rules, please follow them
  • Listen to each song and assign each a score between 1 and 10. Decimals are fine, but please refrain from giving decimal scores that have two decimal spots. This means that giving a 7 is fine! Giving a 7.5 is fine! Giving a 7.55 is absolutely out of the question!
  • You may give ONE song a 0 and ONE song an 11. By one, we mean that this is one song total, not one song per album. Please reserve these for your least favorite and most favorite tracks; excessive sabotage ruins rate results and is very annoying!
  • You may NOT give your 0/11 to a bonus rate song. No, it doesn't matter how much you enjoy feet, you can't give it your 11.
  • You have to listen to and rank each song! This rate has some high-quality tracks, listen to them all!
  • Your scores are confidential until the reveal date. Your scores WILL be visible for anyone to check whenever we reveal!
  • If we suspect you from intentionally giving certain songs or artists low scores for the sake of sabotage, we will not hesitate to tell you to clarify or change your scores!
  • Your scores can be changed at any time! Just PM the corrections to ImADudeDuh or FranklyTheTurtle!
If you want to attach a comment to a specific song (which is encouraged!) write it right after your score. Make sure nothing is separating your score and your comment except for a space! Like this:
THIS IS THE CORRECT FORMAT TO SUBMIT:
Wild Heart: 8 Simon deserved better in Love, Simon!
THESE ARE WRONG, LITERALLY ANY FORMAT THAT IS NOT LIKE ABOVE IS WRONG:
Wild Heart - 8 Simon deserved better in Love, Simon! Wild Heart 8 Simon deserved better in Love, Simon! Wild Heart: Simon deserved better in Love, Simon! 8 Wild Heart: 8/10 Simon deserved better in Love, Simon! Wild Heart: eight. Simon deserved better in Love, Simon! Wild Heart: Simon deserved better in Love, Simon, and for that reason, my official score for Wild Heart by Bleachers on their album Strange Desire gets an 8.0 out of a possible score of 10.0. Thank you.
If you do that last one, we reserve the right to drive to your house and insult you to your face.
You can also comments on the albums as a whole by adding a colon after the title:
Album: I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it: Great album, annoying title!
Again, to comment on an album, just do the thing above. Just add a colon after the album title. Thank you for reading!
HERE’S THE SPOTIFY PLAYLIST HERE’S WHERE YOU SUBMIT YOUR SCORES submitted by ImADudeDuh to popheads [link] [comments]


2019.08.17 21:36 QuantumBrh Voyeur house tv movies

Dosage: 4g Psilocybe Cyanescens.
Highest dosage before: 2g Psilocybe Cubensis once, I always sticked to 1g beforehand.
Setup: at home, in my bed, in total darkness (just the blue LED light of my PC which was turned on), headphones listening to Mac MilleFlatbush Zombies.
Duration of the trip: total 6 hours, including 4 hours (or thousands of years where I left).
Me: 1m60, 55 Kg. Diagnosed by BPD disorder (+ psychosis induced, depression, anxiety, DPDR). Normal shape, I barely drink and don’t smoke at all. Already done shrooms 5 times (free party, at house with friends, techno event)
This happened the night of New Year Event 2018, I took a 3 months break between last drug use (Ketamine) and not tripped for past 2 months.
It was an intense trip and long to describe, that’s why I include a TDLR. Also english isn’t my first langage so please excuse any errors.
TDLR: Took 4 grams of Psilocybe Cyanescens, saw entities watching me and torturing me. I turned into a snake and also a tiger. I was reduced to the subatomic level and explored part of the universe and was able to shape it on my own. Got an out-of-body experience. Experienced love and hatred at pure blissful level. I learned a lot about myself, my emotions and how to manage them, as well as paying more attention to my physical and mental state. Greatly reduced/disabled social medias (+2 hours daily to 30 min max now. I'm more productive and reading a lot of books now). That was a crazy roller-coaster trip !
Mac Miller blasting in my ears, I waited in my bed for the shrooms to take effect. I just had a desk lamp turned on to light the room. Gradually watching my Pulp Fiction poster (got few differents, this one is over my TV) changes, dripping, a warm aura, breathable. Everything began to breathe slowly in my room: the curtains, the walls, my Indian’s mandala wall hanging, my posters. I took the opportunity to turn off the lamp and focus on this impending odyssey.
While at some point I thought the peak had arrived and was not as loud as I expected it, it’s by changing the music and listening to the Flatbush Zombies that everything changed. and I was transported elsewhere!
While the music rocked me, the visuals I saw in total darkness were for the moment only light geometric patterns on a black background, floating in this void ... By closing the eyes everything was different, kaleidoscopic, patterns all as different and beautiful. I open my eyes and close them, I slowly plunge into what seems to be a New World, a galaxy, then total darkness. Then came the light, outward, coming out of my world that seemed then to be a box in which I was. I saw eyes, watching me. Afraid of this look, I opened my eyes! I contemplated now where I was, my room was filled with tiny particles floating in the air, I closed my eyes again. Same vision as before, except that this time the light was different, a natural light, warm and warm like a sun. The box where I am is in glass, I see innumerable boxes of the kind with what seems to be humans inside. I see what has fixed me before: a Giant entitie, behind him the light dazzles me, but I can see a sky, greenery. This Giant observes me from every angle without saying a word, I hear murmurs, incomprehensible to me, I’m the size of an ant compared to him. He takes notes, other Giants that I did not notice then do the same (on me and other humans, I imagine). Am I the subject of an experiment?
When I open my eyes it’s a whole different world that I discover: I’m in the middle of a galaxy, a 3D/4D universe out of our physical laws, and I hear the same voice as one of the Giants who tells me that I am ready. Lightning crosses this universe, dazzling me, I put my hands in front of my face as if to protect myself and then there my hands: I am no more than particles, by moving them I lift the veil on this universe, I am between the dimensions, in the matrix, but of a green/blue color, I can move, cut, create, shave these forms, planets, mountains, lakes that stand before me. I feel like I have taken the place of crossed entities before !
By fixing the little blue light of my blinking computer, I see a flow of energy crossing the room: time ? An indescribable cosmic vibration. An energy at a time so big and so small. Another lightning bolt erupted after touching the iron hanger on which I had hooked up my flatbush Zombies concert tee, the flow of energy and the vibrations become more intense, enormously, to the point that I now see each particle composing the hanger melt with me. Pressure/energy settles in less, uncomfortable, growing, as if I was compressed. Then nothing. I have just been reduced to a subatomic molecule, I feel every thing that is composed and exists: iron, hydrogen and oxygen, infinite living entities, time. An infinite pure energy. I (my ego) no longer exists, I am the universe, I am the time, a deep jubilation impregnates me. I can feel and touch the universe in any way possible, caressing the rock, feeling the wind breeze, the water. Tears run down my face.
After exploring this world, I decide to get up to go to the bathroom, everything is so dark, hostile limit, opening the door of my bathroom I enter a world of crystals, glittering. After successfully taking a piss, I realize that I have a body, a human one. It’s strange, these limbs all connected in a certain way and seem to obey something or someone bigger than them. Although it is inadvisable to look in a mirror when you trip I decide to try the experience (and find who I am maybe). I have not turned on the light, I am bathed in a semi darkness by my slightly ajar shutter which lets in the rays of the Moon. I see only a shadow, no face, as if I did not really have a reflection (but little horns of demons on the head). I wonder who I am, where I am, in the mirror I see behind me full of other mirrors, like this infinite paradox.
I remain to contemplate this dark image of me without finding an answer, I leave the bathroom and open the door of my room, I am stunned: I am in my bed with my headphones, however, I am well elsewhere in the house at this very moment (between two rooms separating my room and the bathroom)? I go back to the bathroom and looking in the mirror I see my image smiling at me, pointing his finger to the side. I see my body lying on the bed, peaceful, serene. How can I be in two places at once? A new light came out, I am in front of the mirror, but behind me a palace is emerging (very Egyptian-like, smooth and flawless black dales and materials form this place where only dominates as the color black and gold/gold, universe and stars as a sky, the light follows this complexion), am I in my head ? I was in my bathroom, and I could see myself looking in the mirror and through my door, my body, lying on my bed. I have a gift for ubiquity, damn it’s divine!
Suddenly I think back to Chloé (deer friend of mine), to her room where I can teleport myself by fixing the mirror, a very strong and soothing aura emerges and impregnates me, Chloé is not there, but I feel good despite this feeling of voyeurism. Why do I think about her and her room at that moment, I do not know, but what is certain is that these waves are Chloé’s and her personality is as sweet as it is delicious. What a great personn! More people should be as caring and open as Chloé, I can not find words to describe what she releases.
When I get back to my room, I get close to my body: I look so peaceful, should I go back into my body? I retreat time to think and it is then that I unconsciously fixed my Indian hanging (representing in separate circles and background elephants, peacocks, flowers ...), it’s like there’s a different level of depth, the circles around it change into a huge, majestic, emerald green snake, it’s like it’s wrapped around what looks and feels the Earth or another planet in the middle. In this inner circle, the mandala changes level of depths, I see reptile eyes, fangs, claws, a wild side, animal, bestial. The snake calls me with a divine hiss. He possession of me, my vision changes, my perception is different: I feel what the snake feels, each cosmic vibration, I wave on the ground, the rock, the grass, the branches, I wander in the nature like a predator, discovering the animal world and hunting for feed me, it’s horny. I feel this need to live, eat, kill, reborn, protect the Earth, a certain immortality.
Back to my room, I watch my Pulp Fiction poster over then TV, Mia Wallace fascinates me and has always fascinated me, a powerful orange aura emerges, I am overwhelmed by so much beauty, I wonder what I love at home, her physique (black hair, green eyes ...) and her personality. I see as if the painting was dripping with a deep black, and yet Mia is there, sparkling despite that, her face morph with a more diabolical vision (same air as Esmeralda in the same movie), I’m in love. Her green eyes remind me of the snake. She‘s the snake I’m sure !
My hanging of Johnny Gloom (french tattoo artist) with crying woman and where another face of the same emotion appears in the smoke of cigarette, one can see the spleen, a tear of blood, and a face. This melancholy fascinates me, it has always fascinated me. This is where I realize that I am not in my room, I am in my head. Like the Giant and his experiences before, I can observe what is going on in someone’s head and understand it, in this case the subject is me. The drawing of Pulp Fiction Chloé had drawn (gift) is impressive, hypnotic and gives off the same aura as Chloé, so powerful. In the poster of Pulp Fiction with Mia snorting drug I see blackness, a way to escape, but also to understand. Some drugs like psychedelics are not necessarily bad, they are tools that lead to an understanding of the different world from the different perspective they bring. In my other prints of choking, and body/lingerie I see the lust, the woman, her body, each of her curves that I would like to marry and, but also these powerful impulses for sex, this need of bestiality and violence, this need to degraded the other, it must be my vision of the animal world/alpha male. For we are beasts, it is in our nature, and it is also our consolation to have a human conscience.
Still listening to Flatbush Zombies with my headphones on, I decide to get back into my body, it’s weird, as if I had regained control of something while technically I was still there, sort of. I get up to fetch my tee FZB, the visual fascinates me, this astronaut traveling through time, with his mushroom growing on the helmet. It is then that by leaning on every detail of the drawing I am transported, I (my ego) ceases to exist, I cross the ages and our world to understand the creation of the universe, I am the universe, taking life little by little, every mountain, every ocean, every plant, I become a tiger in a wild country hunting, killing to survive, to eat and for pleasure, reproducing. I become a crawling snake on the hot rock of a canyon. I see love, hatred, being born over men, their greed and their pride that will cause their loss, hatred. The growing materialism that consumes them.
I feel dehydrated and decide to drink water, I feel like I feel every atom passing through my body while drinking, as well as tiny thanks from billions of people for taking care of me.
I wonder about the existence of God? Is there one ? Yes and no: we are our own God, our own universe, all connected to each other. We are the world, its eyes and mind. Our own universe experiencing itself. I am an atheist and that is my vision.
By moving from the Giant to the atom I wonder in what dimension I exist, although they are all related in one way or another, it’s crazy! From a simple human, to a cosmic entity crossing time and space, to the smallest living molecule. Who knows if being at this moment, this cosmic God is nothing but a molecule or even an insignificant dust in a higher dimension. And yet it is a complete and vast universe that emerges from it.
///
Blurred thoughts (pieces)
Loophole, block in my room, sense of life, work, ourobouros, happiness of others, continuity and boredom, Circle of life,
Suicide loop? Everything is accelerating, what is the good of living prisoner? At this time, Flatbush Zombies «Do not do drugs kids» start playing.
Am I in my trip? Is this the reality? Yes ? No ? It does not matter, maybe it’s fate, this moment of doubt, and if I had lived all this to get to the end tonight? It may be the moment. A lifetime of misery so that destiny pushes me to cease to exist at this moment of my life, this night, when passing from one year to another, from one life to another, from one world to another. What if I stopped breathing? What if I cut my throat? (I found later on that I had put a knife on my nightstand close to me)
The body is only an envelope, my spirit will survive. I will be reborn in one way or another, it is the loop of life, the eternal renewal. However, I doubt to be released from my demons: is this my soul or my brain which is evil? I gradually regain consciousness and find myself in my room with my butterfly knife open.
///
I saw my demons, the one like a Nordic Giant sleeping, emanated from him an open eye with an evil red/orange aura like Sauron, he stared at me, I felt his evil presence, staring at me observing, I could feel the fear, the anger, the hatred that emanated from it, every vibration, an impulse crossing my mind, my body, my bones.
Another demon was awake, he opened boxes that each contained a place defying all physics, from this one I could see human life, hundreds of thousands of people living in this box/this universe. The Giant took a person in his hand as if to study it, she was holding it in her palm. After which he squeezed her as if to crush him, observing the person suffering by breaking his bones, he continued as if to amuse himself, crushing, biting, tearing the person to his soul and sowing chaos in his body. mind. I witnessed physical and mental torture. The Giant decided to put what was left of the person on the table, it was then that son appeared and that the person became a puppet, controlled, neurotic by a superior entity, it is then that I understood that this puppet, was me ! I was in the pay of this bloody demon, controlling my actions and my thoughts. A real voodoo doll !
Watching my phone was odd (although I only used it to change music): looking at the screen, everything disappeared on the sides, like blinkers on a horse. The content on the screen was deep like depth. The longer I stayed on it, the more I found it unhealthy. Fixing a screen and forgetting about everything else, that’s so wrong.

Everyone has viewed real-life footage of horrific events. It’s not unusual to watch tiger attacks, car wrecks, plane crashes, grizzly bears mauling tourists, or breathtaking natural disasters on reality TV. Industrial accidents fascinate us too. Gas explosions, building collapses and passenger train collisions are very compelling to witness (as a spectator). We get a vicarious thrill from temporarily ‘trading places’ with the hapless victims of ten thousand different horrors like those. It’s a sadistic form of voyeurism to briefly place ourselves in someone else’s troubled shoes.
While watching a swimmer trying to avoid a great white shark attack, we swoon. We cringe. We feel sincere empathy for the woman about to suffer the horrific attack. Our sense of terror, adrenaline, and pity gnaw at us as the massive beast bites off her leg in an instant. Raw emotions sweep through us as we witness her inescapable fate on the archived footage.
The shark opened up its gaping maw and exposed rows of razor sharp teeth. She was doomed. It was a nail-biting event of the past immortalized forever on tape. The lady lost her leg but survived. Our sincere sadness and pity masks something darker hidden within our psyches.
Deep down, most humans experience a morbid thrill and sense of selfish relief. The horror itself is quite real but the fact remains. It didn’t happen to us. Subconsciously We think: “At least that wasn’t me.” Footage of other people’s deadly misfortune is the inspiration for countless nightmares because those things could actually happen (to us).
As a matter of fact, Reality TV footage is indisputable proof that horrible things really do happen to the unsuspecting. It’s not like a far-fetched, Hollywood horror movie that a person can step away from. Instead; authentic footage of people experiencing terrifying ordeals grip us like nothing else in the world.
All while we sit back and take it in from the safety of our living rooms. The ugly reality of someone’s actual pain continues on, long after we turn off the television. It was only a shared experience because we choose to take part in watching the footage. The actual people involved have no choice.
By the year 2035, humanity had become so emotionally desensitized that it became known as ‘the Snuff generation’. We completely lost our way, empathy-wise. As our species morphed into self-absorbed thrill junkies, we sought out vicarious entertainment that only the advent of modern technology could provide.
Through transferrable memory implants, enterprising technology companies offered the finest in second-hand experiences. The most popular of which were also the most intense. For a nominal fee, you could tap in to what it felt like to be burned in a house fire, or plummet from a skyscraper. Those were just a few of the myriad options available.
Certain individuals wanted to know what a high speed chase and crash felt like. Others wanted to know how it felt to hit the ground after a faulty parachute failed to open. There were even some who were curious what a robbed convenience store clerk felt like facing down a pistol.
Part II
For the survivors of ten thousand horrible misfortunes coincidentally caught on camera, it offered financial compensation for sharing their real ordeal of their pain. For thrill seekers and ‘experience collectors’, it offered a voyeuristic peek into numerous uncomfortable experiences. The likes of which, few persons would actually want to have in real life.
As distasteful as was, the ‘borrowed experience’ craze was shrugged off as just another ‘harmless’ pastime by jaded millennials. It was soon dubbed ‘Reality TV squared’. People have always been preoccupied with collecting things. It made sense for those obsessed with viewing second hand experiences to stock up on as many as they could afford. Morality aside, the only significant difference between ‘the snuff generation’ and their predecessors of the past were the technological limitations.
Given the ability, any civilization in history would have seized upon the same disturbing fixation to be a gladiator or a primitive hunter taking down a wooly mammoth. It’s human nature to obsess over the adventure or grave misfortune of others (and feel superior about ourselves in the process). It was finally possible to take advantage of the technological ability of shared memories.
For the right price, ‘the experience collector’ could sit back and totally immerse themselves in thousands of white-knuckle events. If you wanted to know how it felt to be a terrified victim, or a death row convict about to be executed, it was available for a commensurate price. All thoughts, sights, sounds, and raw emotions of the incident ‘donor’ would overtake the customer’s overloaded brain.
Their dopamine center would be fully controlled by sophisticated computer-generated channeling. During the duration of this surreal ‘trip’, the customer’s mind would be fully locked into the uncomfortable world they paid for; no matter how unbelievable or terrifying. As soon as it was over, they could escape the horrors of the borrowed ordeal, and then go back to their own shallow lives. It was the perfect arrangement for a detached society.
With people paying to temporarily experience the past memories of others, the lines of reality quickly blurred to dangerous levels. It was the new narcotic of choice. So many people purchased false experiences that it became difficult for them to determine which events were real and which were simulated echoes. To prevent further erosion of reality, Congress passed a mandatory ‘watermark law’.
A digital watermark appeared on the lower right-hand portion of ‘the mind’s eye’ during the ‘borrowed’ experiences. Naturally it wasn’t long before customers complained that it spoiled the narcotic-like potency of the fear and terror to be reminded that it was just a chemical-based simulation. No one wanted to be reminded that it wasn’t real during the cerebral excursion.
Clever black market dealers began to offer more-potent, watermark-free trips for a premium price in their illegal ‘experience dens’. They were hidden around metropolitan areas in traditional narcotics neighborhoods. Unknown to these customers, the unscrupulous dealers would embed virtual ransomware inside them. Since the line between fantasy and reality grew increasingly blurred with ‘Reality Squared’, the user quickly lost all concept of time and their real identity.
No longer could they get a cheap thrill and then escape back to their ordinary lives. It was like a sensory deprivation tank which they couldn’t find the way out of. While immersed in the ultra realistic grip of another individual’s terror-filled reality, the programming would extort more money from the ‘traveler’. Not for it to continue. It demanded payment before letting them free! If they didn’t agree to pay, the user was permanently trapped in a distorted, timeless consciousness where they were unsure if the nightmare was real; or just a replayed delusion.
Part III
The prolonged delay in releasing them from the borrowed experience led to numerous heart attacks and deaths. Unsurprisingly, the black market dealers didn’t care about the collateral damage it caused. They already had their payment. They just moved on to the next experience collector. It was all about the profit. There was an almost endless supply of new thrill-seekers waiting to replace the ones who didn’t survive.
While in the encompassing throes of such an immersive ordeal, the user loses all sense of time and reality. They may theorize that it’s only a ransomware shakedown but with a diminished level of reasoning ability, they can’t be sure. Until the afflicted agree to pay the release fee, they are stranded inside their own minds. There’s no other means to confirm or deny the possibility of it being a secondhand experience. In the narcotic haze of that uncertainty, the terrified users agree to the extortion, ‘just to be sure’.
Similar to ‘locked in’ syndrome, people found trapped in an R2 loop were kept in long-term hospice or convalescence care. They couldn’t be placed into a medically-induced coma because it would hinder them from being able to pay the ransom and then escape. It was rare for them to do so but being artificially incapacitated actually put them two layers below reality. No one could recover from that.
A number of individuals ignored the mounting horror stories and reports of mental hijacking issues. Despite repeated warnings they continued to pay for the high risk trips. Public service announcements made some progress in lowering the number of trapped cases but there was a certain subset of the population that still wanted to ‘live on the edge’. They were doomed to encounter....—————————-

  • We open with the death of Jumbo Tsuruta who passed away from complications after a kidney transplant in the Philippines at age 49. He was a household name in Japanese sports and his death was the lead sports story in the country. On a cultural level, the only Japanese wrestlers more famous are Rikidozan, Baba, Inoki, and Riki Choshu. He was a top star in Japan and arguably one of the best in-ring performers for most of the 70s, 80s, and even into the early 90s. But in 1992, he abruptly disappeared from wrestling for most of a year (later learned to have been due to Hepatitis B health issues) and when he came back, he was clearly unhealthy and had lost his stamina and a lot of weight. For the remainder of his career, he pretty much just worked undercard 6-man tag comedy matches on a sporadic basis because he could no longer compete at a main event level. And even in those matches, he'd usually only be in the ring for a minute or less. Shortly after Giant Baba's death last year, Tsuruta left his office job with AJPW and moved to the U.S. to take a teaching job in Portland. But while there, he got cancer, which he kept a secret from most people. He returned to Japan for treatment and then went to Australia where he had one surgery to remove the cancer from his liver. But he still needed a kidney transplant. Apparently transplant laws in Japan are a mess so he went to the Philippines when a donor was found there. He had the surgery in Manila but died afterward due to heavy internal bleeding.
  • We get the usual massive obituary, detailing Jumbo's life and hall of fame worthy career, and these are always Dave's best writing, plus Jumbo's life story is really interesting. He was a great athlete in high school, where he was the star basketball player on the national championship team during his senior year. He went to college to play basketball, but then one day, he read a magazine article about amateur wrestling and decided, on a whim, he'd like to give that a try. So he quit basketball and started wrestling, which he had never done before. And literally just 18 month later, he qualified for the Olympics in Munich, where he went on to win his first 2 matches before losing his 3rd via decision and placed 7th overall. After the Olympics, he jumped into pro wrestling. He was a huge star from the Olympics and all of the promotions fought to sign him. Ultimately, he decided to sign with AJPW, which had literally just formed 10 days earlier, and Jumbo Tsuruta was the promotion's first major signee. He was first sent to the U.S. to work for the Funks, became a quick star there and was a big draw. Then he went back to Japan to begin his career there and yet again instantly got over and became a star. This guy's life story is that, basically everything new thing he did, he was instantly amazing at it. A lot of the older wrestlers resented that he came in with a big contract without having paid his dues and was getting a monster push, but he was so good that it was impossible to deny that he deserved it. By 1974, he was already considered the best technical wrestler in the world. At one point, the NWA was seriously considering having Harley Race drop the NWA championship to him. He had classic matches with Flair in the 80s. Spent a lot of the 80s also working the U.S., won the AWA title, headlined huge shows for the NWA title, etc. In the later 80s, a newer fast-paced style developed in Japan, and he adapted and changed his style and continued being one of the best in the world. He unified 3 different championships to form the AJPW Triple Crown title, which is still the top championship in AJPW to this day, and he was the first to hold that title. He helped usher in the era of Misawa and Kawada in the early 90s but then he got sick and that was pretty much it.
  • ECW Hardcore Heaven is in the books and while it was a strong PPV, things don't look good for the company, as they're having more and more trouble holding on to talent. Obviously they lost Mike Awesome a little while back and after the PPV, it looks like they've lost Lance Storm also. After the show, Storm said his goodbyes and he's apparently agreed to a 3-year deal with WCW and should be starting soon. Plus, Raven is almost definitely leaving in August (he was only in ECW this last year because the terms of his WCW release prevented him from going to WWF until Aug. 2000). Super Crazy missed the PPV due to issues getting into the country that ECW apparently dropped the ball on, and now his future is questionable also because it's thought he might not be allowed back in the U.S. anytime soon (he eventually comes back in November but only works about 7 more shows before they go out of business). As for the PPV, it was a sold out crowd of 3,400 paid which is more than most WCW shows do these days. Every match was good-to-great but it was obvious that the show was being booked on the fly. As late as the day of the show, the main event still wasn't even finalized. The original plan was Justin Credible in a three-way match with Lance Storm and Tommy Dreamer. Then there was talk of making it a 4-way and adding Raven. Then Raven was pulled out of the show for whatever reason (Dave doesn't say) so they decided not to put Dreamer in either. The show also had a bunch of production miscues, with dead air and no commentary at the start, plus an angle that was being filmed live backstage (to explain why Dreamer wouldn't be on the show) didn't air on TV for whatever reason and Joey Styles just kinda had to tell fans it happened later on.
  • Other notes from Hardcore Heaven: they did a dumb angle before the main event to get Dreamer out of the match and it killed the crowd, who spent a lot of the Credible/Storm main event chanting "We want Dreamer!" And during the second match, the lights in the arena went out for a bit and they had to use a single spotlight to light up the ring until the lights came back on. Steve Corino did an epic blade job, to the point that even his hair turned red. RVD made his in-ring return, losing to Jerry Lynn (also making his in-ring return from injury) in the best match of the show. And Lance Storm, who never blades and has gone on record saying he wouldn't, decided to do it in his final ECW match in order to try to get Credible over (to this day, I think it's the only time in his entire career that he ever did a blade job).
  • Buff Bagwell was arrested last week after a show in Springfield, IL on battery charges. As a result, he was suspended for 30 days by WCW head Brad Siegel. Allegedly, a WCW ring crew member was carrying a roll of carpet through the back of the arena and ran into Bagwell, Luger, and Elizabeth who were apparently blocking the door. He asked them to move so he could get through and Bagwell told him they were "conducting business" and told him to fuck off. Words were exchanged and Bagwell punched the crew member in the neck. Bagwell was arrested and released after paying $100 bond. Another ring crew member reportedly also wasn't allowed through the doorway earlier by Bagwell. The version Bagwell told the cops is basically the same. The crew member asked him to move, but Bagwell thought he did it in a rude way and after words were exchanged, Bagwell admitted that the guy pissed him off so "I punched him upside the neck." Both Luger and Elizabeth gave statements to the police saying they didn't see anything (Luger and Liz ain't no snitches, apparently). Anyway, based on Bagwell's contract, his 30 day suspension is gonna cost him somewhere in the neighborhood of $45,000 in lost wages, plus whatever further legal implications come out of this. That's a pretty expensive punch.
  • Ratings news: Ric Flair won the WCW title on Nitro this week (more on that later) and the match between he and Jarrett did a decent rating by current WCW standards. Of course, Raw still wiped the floor with them. And for those of you keeping count, WWF's ratings win streak is now up to 76 consecutive weeks, so they're only 8 weeks away from passing WCW's 83-week win streak that Bischoff used to gloat so smugly about.
  • In Tijuana, Mexico, Rey Misterio Sr. lost a hair vs. hair match against Psicosis (wrestling under the name Nicho el Millonario). The show drew 6,000 fans with highest ticket prices for wrestling ever in Tijuana, which makes it the biggest indoor gate ever for wrestling in that city. It was a big deal because Misterio Sr. has never lost a hair match and it was said when he was pinned, it was one of the loudest pops ever. If you're wondering, he was paid $13,500 for losing his hair.
  • Vader recently had elbow surgery and will be out for about 2 more months (he actually was out for about 4 months, and when he returned, it was for NOAH, not AJPW).
  • Hayabusa is reportedly looking to work with AJPW because FMW is having financial issues. But with all the rumors about AJPW possibly splitting off into a new promotion, he's not making any moves yet because everyone is waiting to see how all that is going to shake out.
  • NJPW is planning to go public in the near future, similar to what WWF did. It would be the first Japanese pro wrestling company to have an IPO (didn't happen, but as of 2016, they're reportedly still considering doing it within the next 5 years. So who knows?)
  • It was reported in Japan that NJPW plans to offer a PPV subscription service later this year. The idea being that fans could pay a monthly fee and watch all of NJPW's events on PPV as well as through the internet. If it ends up being available on the internet, then theoretically, American fans would be able to watch NJPW also, with the idea that all 100 or so NJPW shows, including house shows, would be available to view, although there's concern that broadcasting all the house shows might kill live attendance (This sounds like a whole world full of NJPW. An NJPWWorld, if you will). Anyway, Dave points out that "the video on the web isn't up to what most would consider enjoyable television viewing broadcast standards. No doubt that will change within a few years and I'd suspect it won't be that many years before all the major offices offer similar plans."
  • A study on the effects of concussions on NFL players was released this week at a neurology conference. It was a survey of more than 1,000 retired NFL players that had suffered concussions during their careers and the study showed that those who suffered a concussion were more likely to suffer from neurological issues such as memory problems, speech or hearing impairments, numbness, and headaches. It was the first real study of its kind on the effects of concussions on football players and Dave suspects this might be an important issue in the future, not just for football players, but likely professional wrestlers as well (boy, I'll say).
  • Atsushi Onita confirmed that he will be facing Terry Funk in an exploding ring barbed wire match next month for the CZW promotion, which had previously been announced by CZW but neither wrestler had confirmed until now.
  • There's a bit of a promotional war brewing in Puerto Rico between WWC and IWA, which is ran by Juan Rivera, formerly known in WWF as Savio Vega. Turns out Vega wants to use his old gimmick name (TNT) in his own promotion, but WWC filed an injunction to prevent it. About a decade ago, Savio Vega got over huge in WWC using the TNT gimmick and WWC doesn't want him using it elsewhere, even all these years later.
  • Yokozuna worked a tag match alongside Justin Credible at an indie show this past week and was said to look enormous, bigger than his WWF days. He only did one move in the match, a leg drop. Justin Credible got a much bigger pop than the former WWF champion (I think this might be his last match. All the usual sources--cagematch, wrestlingdata, etc.--list his final match as taking place in 1999 but those sites sometimes miss tiny little throwaway indie shows. So as far as I can tell, this was probably Yoko's final match. He dies about 5 months later).
  • ECW filed lawsuits this week against XPW promoter Rob Black and Sabu. The lawsuit against Black is for contract interference (for booking Sabu) and for copyright infringement over the "Xtreme" part of their name, which ECW says causes confusion in the marketplace and also pointed out that the XPW logo is incredibly similar to the ECW logo. The lawsuit against Sabu is for breach of contract (for working the XPW show). That's all Dave knows as of press time.
  • Masato Tanaka is hoping to sign a full-time ECW contract, which tells you all you need to know about the financial problems FMW is facing in Japan.
  • WCW has not publicly released any official buyrate numbers for Slamboree because the number is such an embarrassment. Word is it was below an 0.2 which would make it one of the three lowest PPV buyrates in company history. So much for that David Arquette mainstream publicity. By all accounts, Arquette is an extremely nice and likable guy but the decision to make him world champion has clearly backfired in every possible way. Plus 7 years of shit-talking and internet hype from Shane Douglas didn't amount to anything when he finally got to face Ric Flair.
  • Notes from Nitro: they introduced a new group called Misfits In Action. Tylene Buck is now going by Major Gunns. Chavo Guerrero is Lt. Loco. And Van Hammer is Major Stash. Hammer was originally going to be called Private Stash but he threw a fit because Private is the lowest rank and he didn't want to be the lowest ranked member of a comedy jobber group. Crowbar and Daffney somehow won the cruiserweight title in a tag team match from Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch in a match that ended with Miss Hancock dancing (that's the most WCW sentence ever). Dave recalls a recent interview where Eric Bischoff promised they were going to re-establish the cruiserweight title as a serious title with good matches. So much for that. Anyway, Crowbar and Daffney are now co-cruiserweight champs. Dave does give props to the angle with Ric and David Flair, which saw Vince Russo and David go to Ric's house to confront his family (featuring a cameo by 14-year-old Charlotte Flair). Dave thought Russo jumping up and down in Ric's bed and walking around his house wearing one of his robes was pretty great. Sid Vicious turned on DDP, making him like the 30th person to do so in the last month. Dave thinks they should bring in DDP's mom next so she can turn on him too. Hogan bounced Kidman around the ring like a ping pong ball, and Dave is pretty much done with people claiming that Hogan is "giving Kidman the rub" by working with him, when all he's done is treat him like any other no-name jobber. And Ric Flair, at 51 years old and working with one good arm (he needs shoulder surgery) and wrestling in street clothes won the WCW title from Jeff Jarrett. The WCW title changes hands all the time now, so Dave will be shocked if Flair gets more than a 2-week reign. The announcers weren't told of the title change beforehand because they wanted a "natural" reaction, and they got one: the announcers seemed confused, apparently thinking the referee messed up, and therefore didn't initially put over the title change with excitement and instead seemed lost. Anyway, in case you're wondering, Dave considers this to be Flair's 18th world title reign, although you could argue that its his 20th and you probably wouldn't be wrong.
WATCH: Vince Russo, David Flair, and Daffney go to Ric Flair's house
  • Mike Awesome did a couple of interviews (including with the Observer) regarding his decision to leave ECW the way he did. He said that due to legal reasons, he can't fully give his side of the story until next month (I guess there's a temporary gag order on the whole thing) but said he wasn't happy in ECW and after talking to Russo and Hogan, he was convinced to come aboard. Basically, he said Hogan convinced him that ECW was minor league and he should be in WCW. I assume we'll hear more on this once he can legally talk about it (we don't).
  • As previously mentioned, Lance Storm is headed to WCW. Turns out they wanted to bring Dawn Marie in with him, but she still has 2 years left on her ECW deal.
  • Since WCW can't draw in their normal markets anywhere, they're trying to run more shows in smaller markets where WCW and WWF usually never go, in hopes of drawing fans in towns they haven't already killed. They're also planning to run more international shows in England, South Africa, Australia, Germany, and Canada. The last WCW overseas tour actually did strong business even though everything in America is collapsing for them right now.
  • Notes from Thunder: at one point, Dave mentions that David Flair is dating Miss Hancock, aka Stacy Keibler in real life, although on-screen he's with Daffney. They did the thing where blood was supposed to fall from the ceiling and land on Kevin Nash, but it mostly missed and instead splattered on a bunch of people in the front rows. And David Flair defeated Arn Anderson in a 2 minute match which was Anderson's first match back in over 3 years since retiring, but nobody seems to make a big deal of it and in fact, Dave doesn't even address it. What the fuck??
  • In a backstage meeting with the wrestlers, Bischoff put over Kevin Nash and the Kronik tag team, basically saying they're the only ones getting over. Dave says until they start drawing an iota of money or moving TV ratings or buyrates in a positive direction, nobody is really "over" and you can't mistake a crowd pop as actually mattering. For example, Scotty 2 Hotty doing the worm gets the biggest pop of the show most nights other than The Rock, but nobody is tuning into Raw or buying a ticket specifically to see Scotty 2 Hotty. Nothing wrong with that, Dave clarifies. Prelim wrestlers are there to be entertaining, it's the main event star's job to put the people in seats. Don't mistake loud crowd pops for actually being a draw.
  • Random WCW notes: Vampiro signed a new contract giving him a base salary of $250,000 per year, plus $1,300 per live show and $4,000 per PPV. For some reason, there's been a lot of confusion about Scott Steiner's real age online, so Dave clarifies that he's 37. Several wrestlers are working hurt at the moment: Hogan has knee and shoulder issues, Flair has a shoulder issue, Konnan has a neck injury, Juventud Guerrera has rib and elbow injuries. However, after WCW started cutting people's pay in half when they were out for awhile with injuries, nobody wants to stay home and let anything heal, so everybody's working hurt.
  • Goldberg was on the cover of Sports Illustrated For Kids. The editors first approached WWF, wanting Rock in the magazine but when they were told that the story would also feature WCW stars, WWF turned it down because they didn't want one of their wrestlers in the same photo spread as a WCW wrestler. Plus, they don't want to do anything too obvious to make it look like they're marketing to children, since that's been a big controversy lately.
  • Speaking of Goldberg, there's a lot of jealousy from some of the top guys about how hard Goldberg's being pushed right now even though he isn't even on TV at the moment. They've been heavily teasing him for weeks but he's still not expected to be back for several more weeks. As for the people who are complaining, Dave doesn't name names, but says if you think of the usual suspects, you'd be correct (in other words, Hogan, Nash, Luger, Bagwell, etc.)
  • One of Godfather's ho's briefly won the hardcore title on Raw this week before Crash won it back immediately after, making him a 43-time hardcore champion in case you're keeping count, Dave jokes (actually it was only Crash's 8th reign). This is great, simply for Lillian's befuddled announcement of the winner.
WATCH: A ho gets on top of a sweaty shirtless man and removes his belt while thousands of voyeurs watch...
  • According to USA Today, there's talk of doing a remake of the Conan The Barbarian movies, with The Rock being the front-runner to play the role of Conan, which is the same role that catapulted Arnold Schwarzeneggar to movie star fame (never happened. Guess The Rock won't get a shot to make it in Hollywood after all).
  • The Undertaker is expected to return at Judgement Day and his first match back will likely be at King of the Ring (Dave seems to have no clue as of yet that Undertaker will be returning with a whole new gimmick).
  • Random WWF notes: Big Show is working with a hurt knee, reportedly a torn meniscus. There's a reference to Vince McMahon in the new movie Road Trip. Chaos Comics is releasing a Chyna comic book. Steve Austin is reportedly set to play a Hell's Angel member in a movie about Janis Joplin (far as I can tell, that movie spent years in developmental hell and never happened).
  • Shawn Michaels filmed a lengthy shoot interview talking about his career (pretty sure this would be the RF Shoot, although Dave doesn't clarify). He maintained that he knew nothing about the Bret Hart screwjob ahead of time. He admitted that Vince had asked him 3 days before the show to lose clean to Bret and promised him that he would win the title a month later at the following PPV, but Shawn said he refused to lose to a guy who was going to WCW. It's interesting because McMahon told Bret at the time that he had asked Shawn to lose the match clean and but then called Bret back and told him Shawn had refused. But there was always doubt over whether that had actually happened or if Vince had ever really asked him. But this confirms that, in this case at least, Vince was telling the truth.
  • WWF met with NCAA heavyweight wrestling champion Brock Lesnar again this week to talk about bringing him in. Lesnar has already been training for pro wrestling in Minnesota and people are raving about how quick he is for a guy his size. Verne Gagne also showed up to watch him train. Word is that Lesnar is an incredible athlete and he definitely has a great look, but they don't know if he has much charisma or personality yet. Lesnar's former college roommate Shelton Benjamin is already signed to WWF and working in developmental so it's believed Lesnar is leaning towards WWF. Both WCW and NJPW are interested in him also, but it's thought to be pretty much a lock that he'll be going to WWF.
  • Dynamite Kid ended up not attending the WWF's UK Insurrextion PPV. He was going to be an invited guest of Chris Benoit, but because Benoit was flying in for the show and then had to leave immediately after, it was figured they'd have no time to hang out, so he decided not to go. Despite rumors, Davey Boy Smith being there had nothing to do with his decision not to attend.

OCTOBER 1998
HOUSE SITTER WANTED FOR HALLOWEEN WEEKEND
We are looking for a house sitter for this coming weekend, as we will be out of town. House is a two story colonial, four bedrooms, two baths, in-ground swimming pool (heated!) out back. Sitter would also have to feed our two cats, Sid and Freddy, and water my wife's plants. We have TV and a computer in the den. Non-smoker preferable. House is a bit out of the way, feel free to sleep over! Call number listed below if interested.
I was staring at the number when Michael set his glass down a little too hard and slopped milk all over the newspaper. "Watch it," I said without looking up, mopping at the spill with the sleeve of my shirt.
"Really, Amy, were you born in a barn?" my stepmother, Laurie, sighed.
"Yeah, shame you weren't there," I took a thoughtful bite of my toast, ignoring the constant crinkling sound of Michael methodically emptying every last bit of cereal into his bowl.
"Enough with the attitude," my dad said distractedly as he fiddled with the kitchen radio. "You see that house sitting ad? Why don't you give 'em a call, Ames. Get you out this weekend."
I had been planning to do just that, but now that he'd suggested it, I would have preferred to do literally anything else. "I don't know," I said cagily. "I might be going to Joe's thing."
"Ooooh Joe's thing," Michael said in a high-pitched Loony Tunes voice only a twelve year old could make properly grating, and I scowled at him briefly.
Dad glanced over at me and frowned. "I thought you two broke up."
I shrugged as if that was debatable, when it really wasn't. I didn't have any serious intention of going to be my ex's Halloween bash, I just wanted to drag my feet about this house sitting thing, now that he'd mentioned it.
"Well, you could certainly use the cash," Laurie said a little too brightly. "That store pays you practically nothing, and since you never ask for overtime-,"
"Jesus Christ, I'm calling them, alright?" I muttered, getting up from the table and shoving my chair back. I stalked over to the kitchen phone, dialed the number, and made faces at my family while I listened it to ring. I was about to hang up and declare it a lost cause when a woman picked up. From her voice I got the image of a perky perm, a spray tan, and affairs with a tennis coach.
"Hi," she sang, "this is Misty- are you calling about the ad?"
"Yes," I said, a little put off by her cheeriness- it was only nine in the morning. "Yeah, I am. My name's Amy, I can be there at... ten AM on Saturday. How much-"
"$100 a night," she said rapid-fire, and I blinked in surprise on the other end. $200 for two days of house sitting? And all they wanted me to do was feed the cats and water the plants? I wasn't about to argue with that.
"Yeah, okay," I nodded enthusiastically, even though she couldn't see me. "Uh- see you then, Misty."
"Thanks a bunch, chickadee!" she chirped, and hung up. The chickadee thing would have come across as patronizing at best had she not sounded so... earnest.
"$100 a night," I informed Dad a little too smugly, as if the whole thing had really been my idea all along.
He nodded in approval. "What'd I tell you? Hey, it'll be like a little vacation- big house to yourself, heated pool- I'd tell you to invite some friends over if I didn't know better," he snorted.
"Nah," I said, examining the milk stain on my sleeve. "I could use a little me-time."
It was a real pain in the ass to find the stupid house. I got turned around three times before I finally found the right road- one of those private ones with little signs at the turn- and I winced every time my car went over a bump. It was mostly gravel. The house was pretty, though- set back in the woods, with a sprawling front yard and a clean paint job. Whoever did their landscaping was probably making a ton. I parked in the wide drive way and started up the walk when the door opened and a middle-aged couple came bustling out, luggage and all.
"You must be Amy," the woman said- she looked like a brunette Farrah Fawcett, with a sunny smile and taut skin. The man was more average-looking; balding, with a bit of a gut and a sober expression compared to his wife. He gave me a curt nod as Misty rambled on about the cats and her plants.
"-And the upstairs creaks a lot," she continued, "it's just the house settling in, used to scare me all the time when we first moved in- this place was a real fixer upper, wasn't it, Ted?"
Ted grunted in acknowledgement; I didn't like the way he was looking at me. Not like he was leering at a grungy community college dropout in flannel and acid washed jeans, but like he was judging me or something. I settled into a solidly working class glower, and he averted his eyes as if slightly shamed. "We should get on the road, Misty."
"Of course!" she pressed an envelope into my hands. "Enjoy your stay, chickadee!"
I waited until they were pulling out of the driveway to rifle through my small fortune, before shoving the money in my backpack and stepping inside the house. It was a little too brutalist modern decorated for my personal tastes, but I wasn't here to give them a makeover. I walked through the rooms once, poking my head in closets and drawers like the voyeur we all secretly are, and gave the pool an appreciative once-over. I hadn't brought a bathing suit, but that'd never stopped me before.
I was kind of surprised they'd paid me beforehand. What if I trashed the place? I'd never thought of myself as coming across as the responsible type before, but there was a first time for everything.
I went on a hunt for the cats which took me the better part of an hour, and finally found one in the laundry room in the basement and the other in the den, on the desk chair. I was more of a dog person, but they looked fat and lazy so I didn't think they'd be much of an issue. Then I poked around a bit more, trying to piece together what Misty and Ted were like. As far as I could tell, they had a kid, or at least, Misty had a kid judging by the family photos downstairs. It looked like Ted was the stepdad in this scenario. He seemed like the type.
Judging again by the photos, the kid was more of a man now, probably away at some nice college like everyone else I'd gone to high school with. Meanwhile I was firmly settling into the role of disaffected townie who bagged old people's groceries at the supermarket and spent my free time getting high with Joe and his friends, at least until he knocked up Melanie. I really wasn't interested in being with a guy who was going to spend the next eighteen years skipping out on child support and passing his kid off on his mom. Besides the fact that he'd cheated on me with a former cheerleader who used to throw shit at us at lunch.
I made myself lunch in their somewhat sterile-feeling kitchen, ignored the occasional creak from upstairs, and watched television for the next few hours. One of the cats, Freddy, I think, wandering into the living room at one point and took the armchair across from me. We ignored each other in comfortable silence. I actually dozed off at some point, or I must have, because when I woke up again it was dark enough outside to warrant turning on some lights, and Freddy was gone.
I turned off the TV and flicked on the lights in the living room and the kitchen. I hadn't realized how quickly it seemed to get dark out here in the sticks, with no streetlights or traffic. The only sound outside was the wind in the trees. They probably didn't get many trick-or-treaters, if any- I hadn't really noticed any Halloween decorations besides a small pumpkin on the porch, and they hadn't said anything to me about handing out candy.
Besides, there were no cars in the driveway, and I wasn't turning on the porch light- people would probably assume no one was home. Which was just how I liked it. Maybe I should have been a little nervous at being in a strange house by myself at night, but I'd never been a really paranoid person, and I reasoned that I'd been way more likely to get into a car accident on the way here than of getting into some kind of trouble out here. They probably didn't even lock up at night- you'd have to really be looking for this house to find it.
But maybe I should have brought a book or something, because I was beginning to get bored, even though my work was almost half done. I ignored the growling of my stomach again, and stumbled upon a record player in the hall. Smiling, I rifled through their musical selection- Ted clearly had a varied taste- and pulled out Born in the USA. My dad used to listen to this with my mom all the time when I was a kid. I didn't even like Springsteen all that much- it was '98, I was more into Garbage- but it was worth it for the nostalgia alone.
At the very least, their house had good acoustics.
Born down in a dead man's town, the first kick I took was when I hit the ground
Bopping a little, I swayed into the kitchen and rooted through their fridge, coming up with a bottle of Merlot. Might as well live the high life while I was here, right? I poured myself a glass- Misty probably wouldn't mind- and stepped out onto the back porch, staring into the treeline. I wandered over to the pool and after some debate, took off my jeans and sat in my underwear on the concrete, dangling my legs in the warm water, and rubbing at the goosebumps on the back of my neck.
The music sounded strained and warbly, filtering through the ajar back door. I kind of liked it. I took another sip of my wine and leaned my head back, closing my eyes and pretending I was some sophisticated socialite married to a famous actor in some meaningful state like New York or California, enjoying the peace and serenity of our multi-million-dollar mansion before hosting a soiree or whatever rich people did.
Coming back home to the refinery, hiring man said "Son, if it was up to me-,
The record cut out suddenly, and I opened my eyes, the spell broken. Muttering to myself, I swung my legs up and out of the pool and plucked up my jeans, padding barefoot back to the house. Probably one of the stupid cats messing around with shit. I elbowed the door open as I clumsily tried to put my jeans back on- my legs were shaking from the chill now, and I was too lazy to get out the change of clothes I'd brought with me- when I caught sight of the record player.
It hadn't just stopped, the record had been taken off it entirely and was sitting beside it.
"What the fuck?" I said aloud, and slipped on the tiled floor, which was wet from the pool water. Gripping onto the kitchen counter, I looked around wildly and locked eyes with the man standing by the pantry. Or, I would have, had he not been wearing a mask. I don't know what the mask was- some kind of skull or zombie or demon- because I was too busy screaming, loudly, letting go of the counter, and darting for the still open back door. I promptly tripped over my own half-on jeans, kicked them off frantically, and was scrambling for the porch when a gloved hand closed around the back of my neck, hauled me completely off my feet, and shoved me backwards into the stove top.
I slid limply to the floor in shock.
"It's Halloween," he said, speaking in a fairly normal tone, as if we were just having a little chat at the kitchen island. "I want to play a game. You're going to hide, and I'm going to find you. Okay?"
"Fuck you," I said breathlessly, too surprised to be terrified, and made a run for the hall, since he was blocking the back door. The front door was locked, just how I'd left it, and I quickly realized I didn't have time to unlock it with him in pursuit. Instead I changed course and raced upstairs, like every idiot in a horror movie. I could hear him suppressing laughter as he followed. He was probably getting off on this or something, like a bad porno.
Well, I had other plans. I raced into the bathroom, slamming the door behind me and locking it, and began rummaging through the drawers until I came up with a pair of scissors. The doorknob jiggled. "Don't worry," he said. "I'll wait. We've got all night, bitch."
I clicked the scissors experimentally in response, then stepped back and glanced at the shower curtain. He slammed his shoulder into the door as I ripped it off the rod. Wood splintered, and I heard him rear back to try again, breathing harshly. I unlocked the door and yanked it open as he surged forward, throwing the curtain at his face and driving the scissors through his pants leg. He screamed, and I pulled them back out as I rushed past him and out into the hall. That should slow him down. Maybe.
I was nearing the bottom of the stairs when he charged after me, knocking us both to the floor in the foyer, tracking blood across the pristine carpeting. "I was going to be nice about it, Amy," he got both hands around my neck as I tried to contort my legs up enough to knee him in the groin, "but you had to fucking play hard to get, just like they all do-,"
I was seeing spots, but I didn't need to see to send the scissors up under his chin. He gurgled and his grip loosened considerably; I struggled out from underneath him, knocking off the mask in the process, and backed away, grabbing a potted plant from a side table, which I slammed down over his head, sending Misty's precious ivy all over the floor. He sagged and struggled to stand, pawing at his face, before I hit him again and he collapsed. What I could make out of his bloody face looked vaguely familiar.
I stood there for a moment, panting, waiting to see if he was getting up anytime soon. When he didn't move, I limped over to the door and unlocked it, but not before studying his face for a moment. I wondered if this was the first time Misty and Ted had set up some girl to be a little weekend fun for their psychotic frat boy son. I sort of doubted it. I closed the door after me, so the cats wouldn't get out, and set off in search of a neighbor with a landline and a pair of goddamn pants.
