Janis Joplin and Juliette Lewis -

One (the actress) and one (Janis Joplin) inexorably makes two. This song became an audition.

There will ever be a selection to choose the role of Janis Joplin in a movie, Juliette Lewis has the moves, the voice, the experience all on her side. She is clearly far too pretty for Janis’role but Hollywood make-up can make miracles, can’t it.
The part is hers, I am sorry for the singer wannabe actress, Alanis Morissette, but there is no contest here.
Mr Oliver Stone take note, please.

More sports and some extraordinary synergy in evidence with the Da Silva twins who are young footballers just starting to make an impact in the game.



Some interesting info about the Da Silva twins:

Rafael's scored twice for United; the first away against Arsenal and his second at home against Wigan.

Fabio's also scored twice; the first away against Wigan and the second at home against Arsenal.

Rafael, who usually plays at right-back, scored both his goals with his left foot while Fabio who usually plays at left back, scored with his right foot.

The twins' goals against Wigan were scored in the goal to the left of the dug-out of either ground while their goals against Arsenal came in the goal to the right of the dug-out.

Another one for the list -

Looks like Nicolas Cage has either been around for a while (as a vampire) or is also (re)incarnated, but great likeness (too good) and you can buy the photo on e-bay for a cool million!!

(sorry, still don't know how post photos/pictures - maybe just as well!)
Anyway, check out the link -

‘Nicolas Cage is a Vampire’: Photo from 1870 for sale on eBay
http://www.dangerousminds.net/comments/nicolas_cage_is_a_vampire_photo_from_1870_for_sale_on_ebay/

Apparently Nicolas Cage is some sort of time-traveling vampire. You can buy the photo now on eBay for $1,000,000.00. From the listing:

Original c.1870 carte de visite showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage. Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so. 150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.

This is not a trick photo, it’s an original photograph of a man who lived in Bristol, TN sometime around the Civil War.

In the Q & A the seller adds:

Q: Nick Cage has aged terribly in the past 10 years, he’s obviously not been drinking his daily amount of blood to stay young.

A: My theory is that he allows himself to age to a certain point, maybe 70, 80 or so, then the actor “Nicolas Cage” will “die”... but in reality, the undead vampire “Nicolas Cage” will have rejuvenated himself and appeared in some other part of the world, young again, and ready to start all over. From time to time somebody might mention to him that he bears a slight resemblance to the young version that dead American actor, whose name they can’t recall, but eventually, those occurrences will stop altogether.

No official word yet on whether this is photoshopped.
Could just be a publicity stunt, they get creative these days...



Even though uncle Coppola made him famous,
Cage is one of the only talented Hollywood actors IMHO.
That said, he's also starred in mostly terrible movies,
and has given some of the worst performances of all time.

Peaches Geldof: 'my mum is watching over me'

2:20PM GMT 15 Jan 2012

Peaches Geldof said she feels Paula Yates is watching over her after
she revealed her baby is due on her late mother's birthday.

The 22-year-old said her father, Bob Geldof, was "overwhelmed" when she
told him on Boxing Day that she was expecting a baby boy with her fiance
Thomas Cohen.

Peaches said she was amazed when she was told her son was due on
April 24 - the same day her mother, who died of a drugs overdose in
2000, was born.


She said: "It was amazing for me when they told me that, very emotional
and touching and just really beautiful. I was so happy.

"I feel like it's a little wink from my mum; her way of sending a message
to let me know that she's watching over me and my baby."

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/9016137/Peaches-Geldof-my-mum-is-watching-over-me.html


Get ready to welcome back Paula Yates II. (Or is that III ?)

Being reborn on the same birthday. Cool.

From a new interview
with Woody Harrelson:


Quote:




Do you see much of your father in you?

"Quite a bit… I was born on his birthday.
They have a thing in Japan where they say if
you're born on your father's birthday, you're not
like your father, you are your father, and it's so
weird when I would sit and talk with him.

It was just mind-blowing to see all the things he
did just like me." Such as? "Idiosyncratic things.
The way he laughed. The face, very similar."
SOURCE


Born on the same day, eh? Another multi-incarnation playing out? Wink

Woody's father Charles V Harrelson was a convicted contract killer,
who is suspected of playing a role in the JFK assassination.

Quote:
Charles V Harrelson




http://digitalcollections.baylor.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/po-jones/id/842/rec/13


And this is more of the interview with Woody
from which the birthday quote above is taken:

Quote:
I've read that Harrelson's father was a contract killer but assume it's an urban myth – one of those apocryphal stories actors come up with when bored. I ask him how he got on with his father.

"Pretty good," he says. "They separated young, he was not around too much." Then nothing. He ended up in prison? "Yeaah," he says slowly as if chewing on a tobacco leaf. "Yes. That explains his absence." He laughs wryly, and waits for the subject to change.......

......He tells me a bit more about his father. "I think they separated when I was seven. But he was gone a lot before that, in prison. Away and back. Away and back. It wasn't like he was there all the time prior to that."

"They call him a contract killer in the cuttings," I say.

"Is that a glamorisation or simplification of what he did?" Harrelson chews some more on the imaginary tobacco. "Yeah, I mean that's probably a fair, erm…" He stops. Fair job summary? "Yeah, job summary. I was 11 or 12 when I heard his name mentioned on a car radio. I was in the car waiting for a lady who was picking me up from school, helping my mum, and anyway I was listening to the radio and it was talking about Charles V Harrelson and his trial for murder and blah blah blah blah and I'm sitting there thinking there can't be another Charles V Harrelson. I mean, that's my dad! It was a wild realisation. Then the woman got in the car and saw my face and realised something was up. She was a very kind lady."

He says he went home, in shock, and tried to talk to his mother about it. But there was little to say – the truth was out there, on the radio and in the papers. Did your mum know what he did for a living? "Oh yeah, she was pretty hip to all that." Did she love him? "Well, no, she was well out of love with him. You know, I've got to give her credit because she never really soured us on him, she didn't talk negative about him, never, ever. And she could have – he wasn't the greatest husband. Or father. But..."

Charles V Harrelson was jailed in 1973 for the murder of grain dealer Sam Degelia Jr. He was sentenced to 15 years, but released after five for good behaviour. In 1981 he was given two life sentences for the assassination of district judge John H Wood – the first murder of an American judge in the 20th century. At times, he also claimed to have assassinated John F Kennedy.

It was in 1981, after he heard his father had been arrested for killing the judge, that Woody tried to get in touch with him, aged 20. Were they ever reconciled? "Oh yeah, oh yeah. I tried for years to get him out. To get him a new trial." Why did you think he deserved a new trial? Harrelson stops, and thinks about it as if for the first time. "I don't know he did deserve a new trial… just being a son trying to help his dad. Then I spent a couple of million beating my head against the wall." A couple of million, I say, astonished. "Easily. Lawyers upon lawyers…"

Do you see much of your father in you? "Quite a bit… I was born on his birthday. They have a thing in Japan where they say if you're born on your father's birthday, you're not like your father, you are your father, and it's so weird when I would sit and talk with him. It was just mind-blowing to see all the things he did just like me." Such as? "Idiosyncratic things. The way he laughed. The face, very similar."

Did it scare you that you were so similar? "No, no." He laughs, uncertainly.

Charles V Harrelson died in prison in 2007. Were they friends by then? "Yeah, we got along pretty good. When you can't hang out and go to a pub, you know what I mean, it's hard.".........

Quote:


Do these conjoined twins share consciousness?


Susan Dominus has penned a remarkable piece for the New York Times about Krista and Tatiana Hogan, the 4-year old conjoined twin girls from British Columbia who are attached at the head. Scans show that the two girls have brains that are interconnected by a never-seen-before "thalamic bridge," an indication that they might share conscious thoughts. And if their early behavior is any indication, this may very likely be the case.

Twins joined at the head, what's referred to as craniopagus in the medical literature, are extremely rare occurrences, affecting only one in 2.5 million births. Most don't survive. But the Hogan twins are an even rarer case yet. Their neural anatomy is something that has never been seen before by scientists: their scans reveal an attenuated line stretching between their two brains connecting each of their thalamus together. What makes this observation particularly interesting is that the thalamus happens to be a kind of neural switchboard, a two-lobed organ that filters most sensory input.

It's also thought to play an important role in the rise of conscious awareness.

Thalamic nuclei have strong reciprocal connections with the cerebral cortex, forming neural circuits that are thought to be involved in consciousness. The thalamus also plays a major role in regulating arousal, levels of awareness, and activity.

For the Hogan twins, this raises the interesting possibility that they may share both sensory experiences and conscious thoughts. Susan Dominus, who spent a considerable amount of time with twins while researching the story, witnessed a number of occasions that strengthened this suggestion. There are also the results from scientific observation...

Quote:
Sir Malcolm Campbell
(11 March 1885 – 31 December 1948) was an English racing motorist and
motoring journalist. He gained the world speed record on land and on water
at various times during the 1920s and 1930s using vehicles called Blue Bird.

His son, Donald Campbell, carried on the family tradition by
holding both land speed and water speed records.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_Campbell

Malcolm Campbell began breaking the land speed record in 1924 at 146.16 mph.

By 1964, as Donald Campbell, he was setting a land record of 403.10 mph.

After all, if you're good at something, keep at it!

Quote:
Donald Malcolm Campbell, CBE
(23 March 1921 – 4 January 1967) was a British speed record breaker who broke eight absolute world speed records in the 1950s and 1960s. He remains the only person to set both world land and water speed records in the same year (1964).

Donald Campbell was born in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey,
the son of Malcolm, later Sir Malcolm Campbell

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Campbell


As I said earlier, in relation to Tim Buckley and son Jeff Buckley:

Quote:
Again confirmation that human beings of exceptional individual talent
can maintain the progress of their essential character through Time--
with little change in physical appearance and expression of that talent.


Way to go Malcolm/Donald.

and has given some of the worst performances of all time.

This innocuous photo and story was posted by Bri back in 2011.
It's not photoshopped. It's a real photo from a collection owned by
an antique dealer
who was auctioning off a Civil War-era photograph
on eBay of Lieutenant G.B. Smith, Bristol, Tenn. a Confederate prisoner
that was taken in 1864 at Johnson's Island prison camp in Ohio.

Quote:
"Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of walking undead
vampire, et cetera, who quickens/reinvents himself once every 75 years
or so," writes the seller, Jack Mord, who is asking a whopping $1 million
as a starting bid for the pic. "150 years from now, he might be a politician,
the leader of a cult or a talk show host."

So the old photo is Lt. G.B. Smith, Bristol, Tenn. a Confederate prisoner.

Here's where we get all spooky coincidence etc. Another soldier has
a name very similar to that, but from a different and much later war.

Quote:
Lieutenant Geoffrey Bache Smith (October 18th, 1894 - December 3rd, 1916)
was a friend of J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien and Smith attended King Edward's School in Birmingham together. Smith would also become one of the core members
of the T.C.B.S., but not until after Vincent Trought's death. He was at that time already enrolled at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, close to Tolkien's Exeter College. The two became close friends there, because most other Edwardians went to Cambridge. Smith joined the 19th Service Battalion of the Lancashire Fusilliers, the "3rd Salford Pals", and participated in the Battle of the Somme. He was hit by shrapnel on November 29, 1916, and died four days later -aged 22.




Cage, and both Lt. G B Shaw's



He had been one of four college friends -another was JRR Tolkein--
who had called themselves as a group: "The Immortal Four Exclamation

But two of the four would be dead in war at an early age. Another to die
wrote to Tolkein about his book -urging him to speak express for them all:

Quote:
"For the death of one of its members cannot, I am determined, dissolve
the TCBS. Death is so close to us now that I feel - and I am sure that
you feel, and all the three other heroes feel, how impuissant it is.

Death can make us loathsome and helpless as individuals, but it cannot
put an end to the immortal four! ... Yes, publish... You I am sure are
chosen, like Saul among the Children of Israel. Make haste, before you
come out to this orgy of death cruelty... May God bless you, John Ronald,
and may you say the things I have tried to say long after I am not here
to say them, if such is my lot."

http://bit.ly/2y8Jnck
http://www.libraryofbirmingham.com/article/tolkien/tolkiencircle2


So that ebay art dealer thought Nicholas Cage was:

some sort of walking undead vampire, et cetera, who
reinvents himself once every 75 years or so....


And it turns out that Cage's look-alike from the US Civil War has a name
which is a sound-alike for one of the "immortal four".

Perhaps Mr. Cage is indeed multi-incarnate.

And shows up at key points. Wink
