Biography of The Rat Pack Part 1

“Part 1 of our 1999 triple Primetime Emmy nominated (1 win) biography of The Rat Pack. Narrated by Danny Aiello.”

The good ole days…kinda. Their humor always escaped me but I have always enjoyed reading about their shenannigans and watching footage like this. What a different world we live in today. In most respects thankfully. The segregation and state sanctioned racism, misogyny and bigotry tolerated back then was nothing short of appalling. They had money to burn, lived and loved generously. Sinatra’s support of Sammy Davis Junior was extraordinary. What would they think of today’s world? I can’t imagine a group of stars today that could pull off the legendary status that they did. Who really is the multi-talented SUPER STAR like Frank Sinatra of today? That person doesn’t exist that enjoys life the way that man did. Staying up all night boozing it up at that age does not feel good at all anymore, at least not in this bloggers case. Once or twice a year max. In today’s economy, Las Vegas could certainly use “Star power events” like this again instead of the schmalz that is frankly uninteresting to me. The entertainment industry should attempt to save that place eventho many tears and pensions were shed there. It’s still a magical place. I wouldn’t dream of paying $500 so that I could be on the other side of a club that Kim Kardasian or Paris Hilton is pretending to have fun dancing on a table or something equally ridiculous. The entertainment standards have dropped to record lows. Where is all the sophistication and imagination beyond Cirque de Soleil. They are exceptional but grow dull in my opinion. I would love to read a REALLY salacious book or see a film of ALL the uncensored details, legal or otherwise, including the stuff involving the Kennedy’s and their reckless stunts (if ya know what I mean.) I want it all. I once read a fantastic book written by Frank Sinatra’s “Butler.” Why Will Smith has not purchased that property yet I have no idea. If he does for some reason, remember you read it here first.. I will be waiting for my finder’s fee. 🙂
You can find all the other parts on this link or find it on youtube. Enjoy. Please leave me thoughts. I don’t like feeling like I am out here in space alone entertaining myself. 🙂

Rabbit Proof Fence 2002

“Rabbit-Proof Fence is a 2002 Australian drama film directed by Phillip Noyce based on the book Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington Garimara. It is based on a true story concerning the author’s mother, as well as two other mixed-race Aboriginal girls, who ran away from the Moore River Native Settlement, north of Perth, to return to their Aboriginal families, after having been placed there in 1931. The film follows the Aboriginal girls as they walk for nine weeks along 1,500 miles (2,400 km) of the Australian rabbit-proof fence to return to their community at Jigalong, while being pursued by a white authority figure and an Aboriginal tracker”

Miles Davis The Miles Davis Story

“Trumpeter-bandleader Miles Davis (1926-91) was a catalyst for the major innovations in post-bop, cool jazz, hard-bop, and jazz-fusion, and his wispy and emotional trumpet tones were some of the most evocative sounds ever heard. He was also one of the most identifiable and misunderstood pop icons of the 20th century. This engrossing British documentary shows the complex layers of this magnificent and mercurial artist. Through rare footage and interviews, we learn of Davis’s middle-class upbringing and his early days with bop legends Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. The documentary bluntly deals with Davis’s narcotic nadir and his rise from the depths to become a bona fide jazz icon in the mid-’50s to late ’60s. But the most penetrating and poignant portraits of Davis come from musicians who played with and were influenced by him, including Shirley Horn, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, and Keith Jarrett.
Outstanding musical selections include modal masterpieces “So What” and “Blue in Green,” the haunting soundtrack to the 1957 French film Ascenseur pour l’échafaud, his romantic rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time,” and his collaborations with arranger Gil Evans. The most surprising aspects of Davis’s personality that emerge from this film are his shyness, vulnerability, and, yes, humility. As he said himself, “Don’t call me a legend. Call me Miles Davis.” –Eugene Holley Jr.

The Miles Davis Story explores the music & the man behind the public image from Miles middle class upbringing in racially segregated East St. Louis to the last years when he traveled the world like a rock star.”

I got to meet Miles Davis a couple of times. Amazingly low-key. Since I was just a cute gay boy, he had little use for me so I didn’t get much attention. One of his girlfriends was a dear friend of mine. The stories she told me are extraordinary. Perhaps I will share them sometime.

Billie Holiday – The Long Night of Lady Day

“This acclaimed educational documentary depicts the sad life of the greatest of all jazz singers, Billie Holiday, a life engraved with personal tragedy and ultimately shortened by drug abuse and alcoholism. Her story and career are portrayed through rare archival film and television appearances, memorable renditions of her greatest songs, and interviews with friends and colleagues. No copyright infringement intended”

Gosh, I LOVE this woman. She appeals to my heart and soul.

“Operation Condor” Trial Tackles Coordinated Campaign By Latin America Dictato

Published on 7 Mar 2013

7.03.2013 Everyone knew… not the americans!??.. We remember, know they r still doing it, all over the world and at home! Justice must be restored, trial them, each one!
MIRROR: Published on Mar 7, 2013 http://www.democracynow.org – A historic trial underway in Argentina is set to reveal new details about how Latin American countries coordinated with each other in the 1970s and ’80s to eliminate political dissidents. The campaign known as “Operation Condor” involved military dictatorships in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. They worked together to track down, kidnap and kill people they labeled as terrorists: leftist activists, labor organizers, students, priests, journalists, guerilla fighters and their families. The campaign was launched by the Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, and evidence shows the CIA and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger were complicit from its outset. We’re joined by John Dinges, author of “The Condor Years: How Pinochet and his Allies Brought Terrorism to Three Continents.” The book brings together interviews and declassified intelligence records to reconstruct the once-secret events.

“MELTDOWN AT THREE MILE ISLAND”

” Published on 27 Feb 2013

1999 PBS-TV documentary chronicling the terrifying near-catastrophe that occurred in Pennsylvania at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in March 1979.”

“You can find articles about strong evidence TMI was sabotaged. Sabotage or not, as Fukushima shows, you can never trust anything that either the industry, a given plant, or the NRC, or the federal government (which includes the national news media), or state government says, when there is a nuclear accident. You can only trust your own geiger counter.”

We will never know how much nuclear exposure we continue to receive for this source alone. We are currently being exposed to far more nuclear radiation that was deemed safe every day 30 years ago. Cancer diagnosis are spiking at levels not seen before after Fukishima. They don’t want the population to know how bad it is. Pay attention and do your own research. I don’t know what we can do. The entire planet is affected.

Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Station Meltdown ( Fukushima is far worse ).

Uploaded on 17 Sep 2011

“In the nighttime hours preceding the incident, the TMI-2 reactor was running at 97% of full power, while the companion TMI-1 reactor was shut down for refueling.
The chain of events leading to the partial core meltdown began at 4 am EST on March 28, 1979, in TMI-2’s secondary loop, one of the three main water/steam loops in a pressurized water reactor.

Workers were cleaning a blockage in one of the eight condensate polishers (sophisticated filters cleaning the secondary loop water), when, for reasons still unknown, the pumps feeding the polishers stopped. When a bypass valve did not open, water stopped flowing to the secondary’s main feedwater pumps, which also shut down. With the steam generators no longer receiving water, they stopped and the reactor performed an emergency shutdown (SCRAM). Within eight seconds, control rods were inserted into the core to halt the nuclear chain reaction but the reactor continued to generate decay heat and, because steam was no longer being used by the turbine, heat was no longer being removed from the reactor’s primary water loop.

Once the secondary feedwater pumps stopped, three auxiliary pumps activated automatically. However, because the valves had been closed for routine maintenance, the system was unable to pump any water. The closure of these valves was a violation of a key NRC rule, according to which the reactor must be shut down if all auxiliary feed pumps are closed for maintenance. This failure was later singled out by NRC officials as a key one, without which the course of events would have been very different.

Due to the loss of heat removal from the primary loop and the failure of the auxiliary system to activate, the primary loop pressure began to increase, triggering the pilot-operated relief valve (PORV) at the top of the pressurizer—a pressure active-regulator tank—to open automatically. The relief valve should have closed again when the excess pressure had been released, and electric power to the solenoid of the pilot was automatically cut, but the relief valve stuck open due to a mechanical fault. The open valve permitted coolant water to escape from the primary system, and was the principal mechanical cause of the true coolant-loss meltdown crisis that followed.
