My Grandfather in his Florida home. 

I was never too close to him growing up, but over the last few years I’ve gotten to know him quite a bit. He may be one of the smartest, toughtest and hardest working men I’ve ever met. He grew up poor, in a boarding school and figured out a way to pull himself up by the boot-straps to become a medical doctor. I have never feared and respected a man so much and I still feel like a child when I talk to him sometimes. Things that I would normally say with such confidence turn me into a bumbling idiot when he’s around. It’s a really strange thing. We had a long discussion tonight about people that have been necessary for survival in our lives and I would say that he is one of mine. I could not have done this last year without him.

Watch this and understand what really happened.
Two striking things about this documentary, the complicity of the British Empire in securing Israel’s welfare, even to the point where they disarmed the Palestinians so they could not resist the Zionists. And secondly the complete incompetence of the Arab people to defend their own people, so much so that they seem to have abandoned the Palestinian people to their fate. We should be ashamed of ourselves that we have allowed this to continue.
Liberation for all of Palestine…!  

On Netflix, there's a special type of movie

It is a documentary, and it’s called “Miss Representation” and it’s an hour and a half of pure education on women in the media. Literally talking about the female image and how dehumanized we’ve been. I highly recommend it.

So yesterday was kind of surreal. On the 74th anniversary of her death, me and my friend Adam went fishing for Virgina Woolf’s ghost…

Not literally. But Adam is working on his PhD and making a documentary about her last journey- the last long walk she took before filling her pockets with stones and walking into the river to her death.

It started with us going to see her house (open to the public after April) and sneaking through a graveyard into her back garden. You see that shed up in the photos? Well she and other famous writers at the time like T. S. Eliot would hang out in that shed and get drunk! After hearing some dogs barking and not wanting to get mouled to death on private property, we swiftly took to her final path. It was a long, isolated road with vast open fields and a small river down one side.

As you can see, the weather was strangely fitting. It was misty, cold and damp, giving the place a surreal, dreamlike edge. It was strangely quiet apart from the clicking of electricity lines and the occasional train cutting the landscape. I couldn’t help but wonder what must’ve been going through her mind as she walked the same path.

When we got there, I was suprised at the size of the river. I hadn’t expected it to be so big and rough. It was a bizarre thought… 74 years ago to that day, Woolf had walked into that same river and never walked out again.

Adam has been to the river multiple times and taken that same final journey. He’s using different technologies (video, digital cameras, film cameras and now sound) to capture different aspects of the walk. You might remember in my post a few weeks ago I explained that strange, coincidental (or not) things had happened each time he’d been.

We took my Sunco underwater camera and hydro-microphone and attached them to a large extendable pole. Then we recorded underwater. It sounded awesome! We did this until our faces were too cold to talk and after Adam slipped over in the mud (caught it on camera ha ha) we made for the pub.

I can’t wait to go through the footage tomorrow.

A month after the death of Leonard Nimoy, his son Adam Nimoy has announced plans to produce and direct a documentary about his father titled For the Love of Spock. The project is aimed at celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, which aired for the first time on Sept. 8, 1966.

Zachary Quinto, who portrayed the Spock character in last two Star Trek films, will narrate the documentary. “This will be a tribute to my dad and Spock. We have plenty to work from because my dad loved telling stories and he was very fond of the role.”
