I wonder why the trailer neglects to tell us that the dog houses the reincarnated soul of the little kid's father, who croaked in a car accident. Read the synopsis of the rest of the film to learn of its heart-warming tale of death, malevolence, vivisection, and heartbreak. A feel-good pic!

Madge Gill

[Click to enlarge]

Thanks to WU-vie Mark De Novellis, we learn of a new UK exhibition devoted to the work of outsider artist Madge Gill. If you image-google her name, you get tons of examples, such as you see above.

A nice visit if you're in the UK over the next several months.

Exhibition home page.

From the Wikipedia entry:

After recovering from her illness, she took a sudden and passionate interest in drawing, creating thousands of mediumistic works over the following 40 years, most done with ink in black and white. The works came in all sizes, from postcard-sized to huge sheets of fabric, some over 30 feet (9.1 m) long. She claimed to be guided by a spirit she called "Myrninerest" (my inner rest) and often signed her works in this name.

I sure wish I could get a ouija board to do all my writing for me!

Ingo Swann

Somehow we let seven months slip by without commeorating the death of famed "remote viewing" expert Ingo Swann.

Professional Staring

If you had $72 burning a hole in your pocket, and you lived in the Denver area, you could have bought a full-day pass to have Croatian faith gazer Braco stare at you for an entire day. []

Braco's silent gaze is said to effect "incredible healings and other spontaneous changes" in people.

And if you're ever in San Diego, I'd be happy to stare at you for a couple of hours, for an appropriate sum. My silent gaze has been known to provoke acute feelings of discomfort in people.

Ayurvedic Remedies

Imagine what you'd smell like if you applied all three of these topical treatments at once! Probably pretty pungent. Not offensive exactly. But hungry street people with a hankering for curry would be following you and licking their lips. You might just as well roll around in your vegetable crisper and spice cabinet.

Edgar Larkin

I'm always fascinated by scientists who are also bonkers about the supernatural. Even Isaac Newton dabbled in the occult, which was more understandable for his era.

But here's a twentieth-century fellow who led such a double life: Edgar Lucien Larkin.

I'm sure you will want to read all 366 pages of his masterwork to be found here.
