There will always be a soft spot in in my heart for flying saucers. Especially the rectangular and square ones.

My first UFO sighting, at ten years old, is what got me into the realm of the unexplained.

So, no matter how silly the field of ufology might get, I know something is hanging out with us.

102 y/o Dancer Sees Herself on Film for the First Time

Tenfresh
Apr 20, 2015

UPDATE: Alice passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016. She spent the last day of her life in good spirits, enjoying listening to music and having her mail read to her. Thank you to all the thousands of fans who sent in cards, flowers, and art. You truly gave her deep joy and meaning in the last years of her life!

Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer during the Harlem Renaissance of the the 1930s and 40s. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo, Cotton Club, The Zanzibar Club, and on Broadway—with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. Although she danced in numerous movies, commercials and TV shows, she had never seen any of them, and all of her photographs and memorabilia had been lost over the years.

After years of searching we found three “Soundies” Alice appeared in and were finally able to show them to her — she had never seen herself in motion in her life!

You can learn more about Alice at the little website we’ve set up for her: www.alicebarkernotbaker.com/

All of Alice’s films from this video are collected here: youtu.be/rpg5D0AAA2w

For more info about the dancers of the Harlem Renaissance, we recommend the lovely documentary “Been Rich All My Life” —several of the women in the film danced with Alice back in the day!

A little more about the who’s who here: “We” are friends of Alice who searched for the films and made this video. I’m David Shuff, a volunteer who visits the home with my therapy dog Katie, and have known Alice for 8 years. The woman in the video is Gail Campbell, a recreation therapist (and an amazing one at that!). She never gave up on finding Alice’s films, and uncovered the first piece of the puzzle that lead to us finding them — which was Alicia Thompson; a historian of black female performers who had been looking for Alice for years (her site is forclassicmovieloversonly.trip… and her YouTube channel is “MusicandDancing4Ever”). She told us that Alice was in films called ‘soundies’.

Using that clue I found jazz historian Mark Cantor of jazz-on-film.com and he was able to send us three of Alice’s soundies from his collection. Shortly afterwards Alicia got us a few more films.

This video was filmed on cellphones (and almost as an afterthought!) by my friends Darin Tatum and Tom Hunt.

This is so beautiful…

I was so, so deeply into this twenty years ago when it first appeared on the interwebz. There was an excellent site, run by an eyewitness, wherein the photos of the critters taken by the friend* were posted and the encounters described, but it has been lost to history for many years now.

A little ways back someone made a few short clips of what were termed the “Fresno Nightcrawlers.” They just looked so ridiculously “right” that I loved them and do just because they are the most stylish proposals in memory.

Be well.

“Nightswimming deserves a quiet night

I’m not sure all these people understand

It’s not like years ago

The fear of getting caught

Of recklessness and water

They cannot see me naked

These things, they go away

Replaced by everyday”

___Night Swimming, REM

I was noticing a bit ago, when the sun started going down over my family’s home that it looked an awful lot like the sky Nessie is under in this beautiful piece by Andy Pitts. No, the colors aren’t the same but the feeling is. Hot summer days sure make for the most beautiful evenings. Beautiful colors, night swimming with your favorite partner and just being…

I hope your day was amazing…💞

Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green, blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, dies at 73

July 25, 2020, 2:15 PM EDT / Updated July 25, 2020, 5:08 PM EDT
By Nicole Acevedo

Peter Green, co-founder of rock band Fleetwood Mac, has died at age of 73, according to a law firm acting on behalf of his family.

“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep,” Swan Turton LLP, solicitors acting on behalf of his family, said in a statement.

The blues guitarist and singer-songwriter started the band alongside drummer Mick Fleetwood and bass guitarist John McVie in London in 1967. He left the group a few years later in 1969 after struggling with mental illness.

“For me, and every past and present member of Fleetwood Mac, losing Peter Green is monumental!” Mick Fleetwood said in a statement. “I will miss you, but rest easy your music lives on. I thank you for asking me to be your drummer all those years ago. We did good, and trail blazed one hell of a musical road for so many to enjoy.”

Green, considered by some as one of the best British blues guitarists of the 1960s, also composed hit songs like “Albatross” and “Black Magic Woman.”

Fleetwood told The Associated Press in 2017 that Green deserves most of the credit for the band’s success.

“Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” said Fleetwood, who described Green as a standout musician even in an era of great guitarists.

He was so fundamental to the band that in its early days it was called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, his band co-founder added.

Green became an influential blues rock guitarist, with Rolling Stone reporting that he’s considered one of the best 100 greatest guitarists ever.

Green also made his mark as a composer, with “Albatross,” “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman.”

“Oh Well”

The dreamy instrumental “Albatross” — which John Lennon said influenced his song “Sun King” on the Beatles album “Abbey Road” — reached the top of the U.K. singles chart in 1968.

Following his departure from Fleetwood Mac, Green returned for sporadic guest appearances.

He ultimately reclaimed his musical career when in 1998 he appeared in New York for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with his bandmates. He then continued to perform and tour over the years.

Divorced from Jane Samuels Green, Green is survived by their daughter, Rose Samuels-Greenbaum.

Tributes from other musicians poured forth Saturday.

“Sad to hear of Peter Green passing- one of the greats. RIP,” tweeted Geezer Butler, founding member of Black Sabbath.

Oh no, my hero, my god, has left this dimension to play in God’s own Blues band.

I am in mourning. I am so sad.

This is such a refreshing find.

The channel is only about this journey he’s on and I think iot is Absolutely Fabulous. Ive only watched these so far.

And I think it’s actually quite likely real.

15-Year-Old Angelina Jolie During One Of Her First Photoshoots (Interview)

Rūta Grašytė
Community member

If you haven’t heard who Angelina Jolie is, you’ve probably lived under a rock for past couple decades (no offense if you did). The famous 43-year-old actress has been gracing our silver screens for more than two decades, causing boys and girls alike celebrity crushes. Though we all know the iconic Jolie looks, not many of us have seen how she has looked in her teens. To unveil this secret, we have decided to share a collection of modeling photos and headshots taken by photographer Harry Langdon almost 30 years ago at one of Jolie’s first photo shoots. She was only a 15 year old at that time, but the photographer didn’t know that. He was told she was 18.

“Normally before I begin a new session I find out more about the background of a new client. My Representative that time, withheld the beautiful girl‘s age from me since they thought if I knew, that might inhibit the way I worked with her. I was told and thought she was 18, and judging from her sensuality, it was a matter of very quickly gaining her trust. Never coming on in any way, because once a photographer crosses that forbidden line, the subject will become inhibited. So Angelina just ‘came on to the camera.’ No restrictions. I just kept my cool and allowed her to perform. Hardly saying any more than “turn right, turn left.” No conversation was necessary.” – Harry told Bored Panda.

Don’t forget to scroll down for beautiful pictures of when Angelina Jolie’s young looks adorned Harry Langdon’s camera.
