Dream Waltz
by James R. Orlandino
1983

I was camera man on this 16mm movie. It was great fun and a very difficult two day shoot. Michael Wright the cinematographer did a great job and made the shots look beautifully exposed.

I have lost touch with Jim Orlandino and have searched the internet for over a year to see what he may be up to today. I cannot find him anywhere.

This video dub is posted with the respect and honor to the memory of that time. Jim did a great job of conceiving and executing this video. An inspiration to me.

Audio track and video of the Lunar Eclipse

***

While I was shooting this video of the eclipse, I saw a Black Triangle UFO directly overhead and it "shot" over the horizon. i.e. it flew extraordinarily fast over the horizon from a near stationary position directly overhead. A coworker named Merlin was on the roof of Asylum VFX with me and saw the same thing.

The event was so unexpected and startling that I totally forgot i had the video camera. I was transfixed by the spectacle. Only later did I realize what a "missed opportunity" that was. I am glad that Merlin was there watching the moon, because he saw the same thing I KNOW it was real.

I saw a Black Triangle UFO and I KNOW it was real.

A part of the performance by the group FreakShowDeluxe who performed at the Cannibal Flower Art Show on March 23,2013

As far as I can tell the Girl was really taking staples from the staple gun. I paid a buck and shot a staple into her thigh myself. I asked her later if the staples were doctored, or the prongs shortened, and she said she just used regular paper staples that you buy at an office supply store. An impressive stunt and I'm sure you will appreciate her showmanship.

This video was shot on Flip video camera and is a little bit low rez. Because of this it might be easy to believe that the entire stunt was faked for video, but as far as I can tell it was not fake. She was really getting stapled.

This video is in response to a series of email exchanges with my cousin where he repeatedly accused me of being a self centered Narcissist and blaming other people for my problems. He accused me of being judgmental, irresponsible, and self contradictory in my statements and actions. In response, I suggested that he practice empathy and loving kindness. As far as I know, the suggestion fell on deaf ears, so I created this video instead. Peace.

**

He might very well be correct. I thought about his comments and did some youtube research. Either way, it was useless to continue the discussion, because he refuses to talk on the phone and would only send email. So I made this video with the sound of the little bird chirping in the background. While I was editing -- an identical sounding bird sat outside in the tree and chirped happily. Oh well. Peace.

***

One objection to his diagnosis is that Narscissists appear to be unable to understand how other people feel and are entirely self centered. Being a musician that can play music that makes people cry, or on other occasions can make children dance, and occasionally inspire a $10.00 tip, I feel like I am empathetic and intuitive and the label doesn't really fit. I might be stupid, short sighted, naive, and simple minded, but I doubt that I am a Narcissist. Additionally I am reminded that we tend to see our own faults magnified in the behavior of others and we tend to accuse others of the crimes that we ourselves are guilty of.

*****

Mark Stevens muses on the priorities of life and work and play.

****

A dissenting voice: When this was recorded, it was unheard of to have a regular work shift be 12 hours long. Now in many industries, this is the standard work day; 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Under these conditions, there is TOO MUCH WORK, no play, and no time for a balanced life. Under these conditions, everything Mark talks about is somewhat irrelevant.

****

From math:

The Taylor Series is an infinite series that can be used to approximate ANY function given the correct constant multipliers of each element in the series.

In this talk Mark uses the concept of a Taylor series as a way to understand omniscient perception of life (or "the Mind of God).
