LA music producer missing after call to police 
LOS ANGELES Authorities report a Grammy-nominated music producer who has been missing since Sunday called a friend that day on his cell phone to say he was being chased by people with dogs.


Irwin's sister, Sharon Riolo, says her brother got scared when he received a check for 50-thousand dollars in the mail from Nigerians.

Superman spotted in Serbia 
Serbian authorities are investigating reports of a real-life Superman after people claimed to have seen a cloaked figure flying over their houses.

Hundreds of residents in Ljubovija described seeing a cloaked person flying above buildings "as if he had an invisible engine on his back" and changing directions while in mid-air, local daily Blic reported.

And speaking of flying things, check out the Mothman Annotations, from where I retrieved the following quote:

Paul Stonehill, Director of the Russian Ufology Research Center in California, has kept in close contact with his colleagues in the former Soviet Union. In the early 1990s he received news about the legendary Letayuschiy Chelovek, the Flying Man of Vladivostok, from Alexander Rempel, a leading ufologist in the far eastern sections of Russia.

Most reports of the Flying Man describe only its strange call, a womanlike scream that ends in a drawn out howl. The cry is accompanied by sounds as if something large is approaching through the forest, but nothing is seen. Otherwise fearless hunting dogs flee the creature. The howls of the Flying Man were reported in the 1930s and '40s, and from 1989 on they have come again.

And let's not forget Charles Fort:

Louisville, Kentucky: Charles Fort writes in LO! (1931): "I found accounts in the Louisville Courier-Journal, July 29, Aug. 6, 1880 . . . The story is that, between 6 and 7 o'clock, evening of July 28th, people in Louisville saw in the sky 'an object like a man, surrounded by machinery, which he seemed to be working with his hands and feet.' The object moved in various directions, ascending and descending, seemingly under control. When darkness came, it disappeared." [Complete Books, p. 641]

Jim Brandon adds that "a tall and thin weirdo" appeared in the Louisville vicinity that very day:

He wore a sort of uniform, made of shiny fabric, and with a long cape and metallic helmet. On his chest under the cape was a large, bright light. His big thing seemed to be scaring people -- particularly women -- sometimes getting so familiar as to pull their clothing off. His favorite method of escape was by springing smoothly over high objects like haystacks or wagons, then vanishing on the other side. [Weird America, page 92]

Nasty Monkey Bites! Sneezing At Tigers! Stiff Upper Lips! (Crikey!) 
Profile of old-school explorer John Blashford-Snell.

. . . a few old-school explorers are still hacking their way through the brush, square-jawed envoys to the secret world - and Colonel John Blashford-Snell is the most vividly drawn of the lot. He is quite possibly the only expeditioner who has his gear tailored on Savile Row. Or to have hauled an 800-pound grand piano 350 miles through punishing jungle deep in Guyana as a publicity stunt to raise relief aid for the flood-beleaguered Wai-Wai village.

"I was a little taken aback," Robert McCaffrey said, describing his reaction when he first saw the operation name on Patrick's tombstone. "They certainly didn't ask my wife; they didn't ask me." He said Patrick's widow told him she had not been asked either.

"In one way, I feel it's taking advantage to a small degree," McCaffrey said. "Patrick did not want to be there, that is a definite fact."

EDIT: On second thought, how about "My country went to war for no reason and all I got was this lousy gravestone"?

U.S. dodges Robertson comments on Chavez 
The Bush administration swiftly and unequivocally distanced itself Tuesday from a suggestion by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson that American agents assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a frequent target of U.S. foreign policy.

Robertson's big mouth might be the best thing that ever happened to Chavez, but the Bushistas must be furious, because now they can't Wellstone him, or Carnahan him, or Colby him, or Baxter him, or Rice him, or Watkins him, or - well, you get the idea.

For some Rigorous Intuition on the subject go here.

The Vigilante 
At a glance, the office of Tijuana's weekly newspaper, Zeta, gives just a hint of the kind of publication that is produced inside. It sits on a residential street in a middle-class neighborhood, and only a small plaque seems to distinguish it from the rest of the block's modest family homes.

Look closer and a theme emerges: the building is set back from the street, with much of it obscured by a concrete wall; no first-floor windows are visible; and the front door has heavy grating.

Watching the paper's editor and publisher, J. Jesus Blancornelas, arrive for work dispels any doubts. A caravan of three vehicles pulls up, two Suburbans and a blacked-out Chevrolet Caprice. Out pile fourteen serious-looking men - soldiers in the Mexican Army - bristling with M-16 assault rifles, shotguns, copious clips of ammunition, and body armor. That level of protection would be surprising for a journalist in Baghdad, let alone for one in a quiet neighborhood thirty minutes from downtown San Diego.

The precautions are for good reason, though. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, a significant majority of illegal drugs destined for the U.S. - marijuana, cocaine, and heroin - transit through Mexico. Tijuana, host to one of the world's most heavily traveled border crossings, is a strategic chokepoint. In the first four months of this year, there were 163 homicides in Tijuana, many drug-related.

Local journalists know how dangerous it is to shine a spotlight on the trade and the corruption it fuels among Mexican officials. Nine reporters have been killed in northern Mexico in the past decade, with the perpetrators enjoying what the Committee to Protect Journalists calls a "nearly perfect record of impunity." In such an environment, Zeta stands out, both for the work it has produced and the costs it has incurred.

Strangely enough, I just had what I called my Leonard Cohen weekend. Everywhere I went, Leonard Cohen was playing.

Exploring Jewish Magic, Giants 
Jewish books about magic and giants are among the slew of ancient texts set to be translated into English.

The manuscripts, which date from the third century B.C.E. to the sixth century C.E., include legends about numerous biblical characters, magical and astrological handbooks, poetry, visions, oracles, and apocalyptic prophecies.

They include some examples of nonconformist beliefs and practices, such as Book of the Mysteries, a Hebrew handbook written in the talmudic era listing magical incantations and spells that sometimes invoke pagan gods, a practice forbidden by Jewish law.

Others are downright provocative, such as the tantalizingly named "Book of Giants," which expands on a story told in the Book of Genesis where angels are said to have mated with the daughters of men who then gave birth to giants.

Why We Love Bad Movies 

The fact most often repeated about Hal P. Warren, the auteur of the cinematic freak show "Manos: The Hands of Fate," is that he was a fertilizer salesman, as if the occupation somehow disqualified him from moviemaking.

Maybe, maybe not. In the summer of 1966 Warren led a band of justly uncompensated players into the desert around El Paso to make what is now widely celebrated as the worst movie of all time. The tale of a family who falls into the grip of a Satanic cult—though the spoils of soul-selling amount to no more than a screen-door shack with a filthy couch - "Manos" is a work of dazzling stupidity and an incompetence so decadent that it's hard to understand how Warren managed to dress himself in the morning.
