Adding to the drama is a conflict with thugs commanded by a Chinese warlord.

Final Post

This is my final post as I am off to the hospital once again for more Chemo and it’s needles to the left, needles to the right, staring into the valley of death dreaming of nurses in white clad uniforms

I am tired,very tired

Tired of hospitals

Tired of doctors

Tired of nurses

Tired of needles

Tired of chemo

Tired of life

I am tired, very tired and that’s it

Enough, let’s get it over with


Well in truth it  ain’t all that bad and with luck my blood counts will come back up I be singing

(Fame) I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna learn how to fly (High)
I feel it coming together

Ah, ha,ha all horseshit of course, me and the Grim Reaper are on the best of terms, would I dream of cheating him. Why I even share a drink with him now and again


However for now,this site is going into hibernation but who knows the the phoenix may rise again?

Card Party 1896


Playing Cards (French: Une partie de cartes), or Card Party, is an 1896 French short black-and-white silent film by Georges Méliès. It was the first film in Méliès’ prolific career, and thus is number one in his Star Film catalogue. It is a remake of Louis Lumière’s film The Messers. Lumière at Cards, which was released earlier the same year. Along with Georges Méliès himself, his brother Gaston Méliès and daughter Georgette Méliès both appear in the film.

The film depicts a typical afternoon scene in a French garden. Three men are sitting at a table, two of them playing cards while the third smokes and reads a newspaper. The man who is not playing cards calls over a young girl and has her fetch a woman with a bottle of wine. He proceeds to pour glasses for himself and his friends. After drinking the wine, the man reads a story out of the newspaper causing his friends to laugh. The film lasts roughly 67 seconds.

Doktor X 1916


Felix, an introverted researcher, asks the worldly Dr. Voluntas to guide him toward worldly pleasures. Dr. Voluntas accepts the invitation and leads his laboratory rival down the path of dissipation.

One striking motif is that of a sweeping darkness associated with Voluntas’ control over Felix.

Dog Factory 1904

Image result for Dog Factory 1904

Two men are operating a ‘dog factory’, using a device that they call a Dog Transformator. A man brings three dogs into their shop, which they purchase from him. They place the dogs one by one into the machine, which turns each dog into a string of sausages. As their customers come in, they are then able to select the kind of dog that they want, and the machine changes the corresponding string of sausages back into a dog.
