My appearance in new release, "SATAN VHS"

A Goal Finally Realized!

At long last, I have achieved one of my life's ambitions, namely, to have my name gracing the cover of a DVD! With the release of the eerie horror flick, "Satan VHS," I have now realized that dream! For me, it is a very prideful moment.

Set in a video store in the Valley of Syun 4 Nando in the year 2033, this engrossing production centers on two heroes' desperate quest to find the enigmatic Tape of Time.

I portray Dr.Gruel, a mysterious customer at the store which is dominated by Satan himself!

Interestingly, I was selected for the role by Amir "Speck" Habibi, producer of the public access show, "Space-Dungeon," who knows me through my access series, "Mysteries From Beyond the Other Dominion."

I am keeping my fingers tightly, very tightly crossed that this will be a hit, with a possible sequel that I would love to be part of.

May the Power of the Cosmos be with You!

(No.161) This Week's "Realm of Bizarre News "Top 13!

-Bad idea! Gal.77,in Indianapolis, IN tried to break up a swordfight between her brother-in-law and grandson, which developed from what appeared to be a minor dispute. She was stabbed to death and her bro-in-law also succumbed to his wounds. It is uncertain as to which sword wielder delivered the fatal strike to her. So, please, please do not attempt to break up a swordfight unless you also have a sword and know how to use it...we can't afford to lose even one of you out there!

-Oregon woman has 2 anteaters as pets, Pua and Stewie! She makes clothes for them to keep them warm in the cold climate, and one of them even sleeps with her!

-In Mumbai, India, a skillful criminal hypnotized a jeweller into handing over $160,000 worth of diamonds bracelets and necklaces. This is reminiscent of the 1946 film, "The Mask of Diijon," in which a hypnotist (ably portrayed by Erich Von Stroheim) induced a man to commit suicide.

(Trivia Q: Until recently, Mumbai was known by what name? Answer below)

-Obese tourists are wearing out emaciated donkeys in sites around the globe, such as Cairo, Egypt. The visitors are unable to walk to the historic sites, so they pay for rides on the donkeys, who become true beasts of burden. Animal activists point out that many of the fat visitors outweigh the poor creatures they are sitting upon!

-New, disappointing theory concerning Jack the Ripper! While persuasive cases have been advanced for Queen Victoria's grandson, an American doctor, author Lewis Carroll, and artist Walter Sickert, among others, as the Ripper, the latest hypothesis, posited by historian Dr. Andrew Cook, argues that he never actually existed, that he was the invention of the newly-launched tabloid, the Star, created to sell newspapers. Someone there cleverly linked together several murders to one man, which the public ate up. While we know that serial killers do indeed exist, his case against Jack the Ripper certainly seems plausible.

-Yipes! Surgeon in Shakopee, MN, needed to operate twice to remove an appendix! Two days after apparently excising the patient's appendix, it was determined that he only removed a fold of fatty tissue, so he had to gut the patient a 2nd time to extract the offending organ, which resulted in the patient remaining hospitalized an extra 11 days!

-Woof! Woof! "Counseling canines" have been introduced at the University of Wisconsin to reduce students' stress over final exams! That is fine for dog lovers, but what about cat fanciers...shouldn't friendly felines be brought in to ease their stress, too?

-New Face of Mars discovered! A recently-released NASA photo shows what appears to be a rocky human skull with 2 eyes, a nose, and a small mouth. Unlike the huge, celebrated "Face" photographed back in 1976, this is approximately the size of a humanoid skull: it could be an actual ossified skull, an artistic sculpture, or merely an optical illusion. You can judge for yourself by checking it out at:

-Wife in Enumclaw, WA, trying to prevent her hubby from gambling away their savings earmarked for a new automobile, phoned the casino in nearby Auburn he was headed for, claiming he was carrying a bomb. Now, she could face charges and he might still gamble in the future.

-Veteran diver Pino Termini claims that he saw the ghost of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin swimming underwater at Batt Reef off of northern Queensland, Australia, where he was fatally speared by a stingray in September of 2006. Irwin looked at peace, perhaps guarding the area where he died. This is the first reported materialization of Irwin since his untimely demise.

-Ouch! Serbian union leader cut off part of his little left finger and ate it as a protest over not just low wages, but wages that have not been paid for years! Ouch!

-An inhaler for chocolate lovers has been developed by a Harvard prof that allows you to inhale chocolate molecules, providing the taste of chocolate without adding any calories. Personally, as a chocoholic myself, I think I would miss the enjoyment of biting into a tasty chocolate bar...sniffing it seems to lack something. But, I may be wrong and it could become a hit.

-Heroic school nurse Eileen Bowden, 59, saved the life of the softball coach at Santa Clara High School(CA) with CPR after he suffered a heart attack. But, moments later, she suddenly collapsed and died enroute to the ER, apparently of a heart attack!

(Trivia answer: Mumbai was known as Bombay)

I can present these and other intriguing reports(which can be fleshed out in more detail if needed) for you in a dynamic new 1-5 minute feature (or even 30-second microfeaturette) that can run daily, tri-weekly, or weekly on any of your existingproductions, or stand unto itself as a separate 30-minute weekly entity!

I am currently host of the cable TV series,"Mysteries From Beyond The Other Dominion."

Recently, I was the resident anomalist on "The New Tom Green Show" on MTV, guested on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and the new "ALF'S Hit Talk Show," and was profiled on "9 On The Town."

And, I was a regular contributor to "A Current Affair," guested on THE X-TESTERS,hosted a recurring UFO segment on "9 On The Town," and was a "Stranger" on NBC's "Identity."

Opening of "The Seventh Python"

Exclusive! The Seventh Python is chosen to open The Pacific Palisades Film Festival on May 14th,2009

The Seventh Python has been chosen as the Opening Selection of the prestigious sixth annual Pacific Palisades Film Festival.

The acclaimed, award-winning nonfiction musical film about genius pop satirist Neil Innes will be presented at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 14th at Theatre Palisades at 941 Temescal Canyon Road off Sunset Boulevard.

Tickets are $10.

The announcement of the latest accolade for the film produced by our pals at Frozen Pictures comes a few short days after The Seventh Python picked up a Golden Ace Award at the Las Vegas Film Festival.

"It's enough of an honor to be accepted at the Pacific Palisades Film Festival. To be named Opening Selection is a real treat," says Seventh director Burt Kearns. "We've been around the country and are heading around the world. This hometown screening is bound to be a highlight."

"You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll sing along," promises producer Brett Hudson. "We'll definitely get the festival off to a rollicking start!"

The Pacific Palisades Film Festival in the star-studded, industry-heavyweight hometown at the end of Sunset Boulevard is sponsored by the Friends of Film organization, which will award actor Stacy Keach its Lifetime Achievement Award at a VIP party after the screening of The Seventh Python.

The Seventh Python has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "charming and illuminating," and "serious yet comical... a must-see" by Associated Content.

The film was produced by Brett Hudson. It includes appearances and performances by the likes of John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Aimee Mann and Matt Groening. It is brightened further by animation from Bonnie Rose, who beat George Lucas to win The Colbert Report Green Screen Challenge.

Along with director Kearns, more than a few members of The Seventh Python production team, are current or past Pacific Palisades residents. So are Steven Spielberg (current) and Jerry Lewis (past).
