I had a lot of websites, that much i'll admit, but i was a closet Legend fan from day one. I watched the movie everyday and spoke each word of the movie without turning around in my computer chair to see what was happening on the screen. It was just a matter of time bfore i addressed the movie here.
I had a bad life there for a while at home and i turned to fantasy books and movies to kill the time and make me wish i was somewhere else. I've told this story many times before on many different websites so i won't bore you here, lets just say that it sucked, i didn't like it, and i never want to have to draw D&D maps on motel kitchen tables in the near future.
When life improved for me drastically when my father remarried, my infatuation of fantasy and science fiction remained, and so when i had the means (thank you Performa 636 macintosh) i made a website to chronicle my life from that point forward, including my new favorite movie: Legend.
I made a "ring"and invented a Legend Convention, hosted fan fictions and met friends that i would still keep in touch with for years to come. People assumed i was much older than i was; i called agents and argued my points with the owners of Figmentfly.com about who did what costume and which actor portrayed what. To this day if you type in my website address at google, you get thousands on hits on the subject. I hand typed the first Legend script with help from a friend, now titled the March 10th Script, which is popularized as the definitive script about the movie to read.. if you were so inclined. Some of the things i pointed out on the Europeon edition of the movie were used in the Legend Ultimate DVD set, released by active petition (that i started in 1998) in 2002.
I was pretty into it i guess.
I did the same thing for alot of things, which got me into web design, writing, and lastly, this blog. If your interested in other things i've played around with prior to 1999, google the word, "Docdroz". You may need a while to see it all.
I'm just going to post this every now and then. Get used to it. This is the HD version afterall and i was excited after i found it.
For those of you who don't know, this video nearly started the Anime revolution.

This goes on for quite some time, there are about seven more recorded parts to this machine madness, very cool to watch though. I did the same thing when I was growing up, except it was Metroid and I used a VCR. Long live Samus Aran! (サムス・アラン)

The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion
Henry Joseph Darger was a reclusive American writer and artist who worked as a custodian in Chicago, Illinois. He has become famous for his posthumously discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, (also know as Into the Realms of the Unreal) along with several hundred drawings and watercolor paintings illustrating the story. Darger's work has become one of the most celebrated examples of outsider art.
15,145 pages.. one book?
In the Realms of the Unreal includes The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is Known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinian War Storm Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, and extends over 15 immense, densely-typed volumes of 15,145 total pages. The text is accompanied by three bound volumes of several hundred illustrations, scroll-like watercolor paintings on paper, the work of six decades, derived from magazines and coloring books. In addition, Darger wrote an eight volume, 5,084-page autobiography, The History of my Life; a 10-year daily weather journal; assorted diaries; and a second work of fiction, provisionally titled Crazy House, of over 10,000 handwritten pages. He started writing in 1908.
The son of a bitch was crazy, spent his entire life writing and drawing huge elaborate pictures from tracings of childrens books about 7 sisters on another planet. Some of the drawings he made took up to 3 years to complete, were 10 feet long, and had 10,000 or more tracings.
Another curious element of this mystery is a prediction made in 1938 by Edgar Cayce: “A portion of the temples may yet be discovered under the slime of ages and sea water near Bimini… Expect it in ’68 or ’69 – not so far away.” In a more recent expidition, amateur archeologist Dr Greg Little discovered another row of rocks in the same formation directly below the first, leading him to believe that the road is actually the top of a wall or water dock.

Fuck you, i like this song.
I just wanted to pick apart the video for a second. Are they in some kind of post apocalyptic world where all they have is scraps and 80's jump suits? Why is the lead singer so creepy?
My wife called me over and had me put on her headphones at the ending of one of the episodes of "Big Love" the mormon show that popular right now with Bill Paxton and Chloe Sevigny (ahem brown bunny), and this music was playing.
It's been shot with gamma radiation, taken apart, x-rayed and shown to have thousands of microscopic moving parts, gears, springs...
Okay so its way ahead of its time, and it tells time.. Does not belong in history anywhere at all.. I.. Umm.... . . .
Vimanas are the mythical flying machines chronicled in the ancient Sanskrit epics of India. The story of the Vimana predates Christ by many thousands of years, and the Hindus of today’s India believe the existence and usage of Vimana to be historical fact. There is a plethora of ancient Indian literature which deals with the Vimana and its many aspects. Most of the epics await translation. One epic, titled Manusa, gives clear instructions on how to build the craft and the proponents that make them able to fly. Other texts have names such as ‘The secret of making Planes invisible’, ‘The Secret of hearing conversations and other sounds in Enemy Aircraft’ and ‘The secret of making Planes motionless’. There are many other texts about Vimana which are spoken of in the epics, but have not yet been discovered. Many texts speak of ships and planes with nuclear capabilities and a great nuclear war that took place. In the ancient ruins of Mohenjo-Daro, once part of the Indus Valley Civilization, 3000 year old skeletons where found with radioactivity levels that surpassed that of the bodies at Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The ruins themselves also emit high radioactivity levels. It is a documented fact that the city was destroyed suddenly.
The wording of the texts is highly technical, and speaks at a high level of intellectual maturity in areas such as physics and aero dynamics. One text of the Vaimanika Shastra, which translates as ‘Science of Aeronautics’, includes 230 stanzas, concerning aviation matters such as construction, take off, cruising for thousands of miles, normal and forced landing, protections of the airships from storm and lightening and how to switch the power source to solar energy from free energy. The same text describes at great detail the construction of the mercury vortex engine, which is the forerunner of the Ion vortex engine used today by NASA. In 1895, a Sanskrit scholar named Shivkar Talpade designed an aircraft based solely on the Sanskrit document concerning the mercury vortex engine. The unmanned craft reached a height of 1500ft.
Apparently these machines have been written about and discussed in great detail for thousands of years. Hell, someone made one and flew it.
