My wish for 2019? I hope people wise up, climb down off the cross, stop following the crowd of whiners, stop being victims of their own self-imposed identity and identities imposed by politics, seek empowerment of self through self-education and become an asset and not a dead drain; learn genuine history and science––not just what is preached to the masses––stop thinking the government can fix all your problems––let alone the world's boundless ones; and stop being cattle driven by fear mongers and reverse-racists and special interest groups and social-media-morons who abuse Godwin's Law and who also twist...well...

...just always keep this in mind: we've been in a climate change and warmup since the last ice age, hence we are no longer in one; also more people die from cold each year than heat. Simple facts...which brings me to my last hope? I wish people would rediscover and use Common Sense again and do their own research. Really, the truth is out there and it's not on the TV. It's in history books and science books and in simple observation and thought experiments and triangulation of information and cross-referencing.

I hope the human race will start doing some real thinking in 2019, is what I wish. And always remember, if you haven't seen or heard it with your own eyes and ears, there is always reason to doubt and not overreact. But if you do choose to get all your wisdom from the TV––the boob tube––remember this fact too: it's all done with clever camera shots and editing that are overlaid with the spinning of a clever phrase. What's in a word or words? Nothing. Actions are what matter––get off your tail-end and give someone hungry a sandwich, because just voting and crying aren't gonna solve the real problems.

And finally I wish a bitter and morbid death to semantics and opinion and memes as truth and wisdom (what you see on Twitter is equivalent to air in an echo chamber). And they who are without sin may cast the first stone at another (look in the mirror first). Always remember the Golden Rule––and if you don't know what that is then 2019 is a good year to start using a dictionary. Happy New Year humans! And good luck, you're going to need it.

Yet what truly approaches, hidden beneath the red cloak of time?

The Butchering Art:

Joseph Lister's Quest to Transform the
Grisly World of Victorian Medicine

Author: Lindsey Fitzharris

Available on Amazon

To read The Butchering Art, you should have a stronger stomach than mine.
The book makes no bones (pun unfortunately intended) about what you'll find inside — it's subtitled Joseph Lister's Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine, so you're duly forewarned. And I thought I knew more or less what I was in for. I knew about the disgusting sanitary conditions in 19th-century hospitals; I knew about the much-too-slow development of anesthesia; I knew the chilling quote from Dr. Charles Meigs about the impossibility that a doctor could carry disease on his person between patients: "Doctors are gentlemen, and a gentleman's hands are clean." I still wasn't ready. 

At heart, it's a slender but effective biography of Lister, the sort of comforting historical figure more interested in his work than his legacy. First as a student and then as a surgeon...

(The Feature Film)


So...I was up before dawn and out in the cold again today in further attempts to capture more 'video plates' for future Special FX compositing work required for the new film. I guess this means Post-Production on HNM has officially begun,
though no editing has started yet.

As I was finishing up I noticed the Moon was still looming large in the sky, so I stopped and grabbed some pics. I also grabbed some rural Rowlett, Texas, pics too––why?––because I could. lol Enjoy more of my life in crime as I lurk in dark, damp, and chilly places.

I SPOILED MYSELF––and this little book made me smile and said "I want to be yours." It arrived just yesterday from a rare book seller and I wanted to show it off. An excellent addition to my "old book" collection.

POE's PROSE TALES (Thomas Y. Crowell & Co.––1902) with Introduction by James Russell Lowell. :O And it will make an excellent companion for my THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM OF NANTUCKET (Funk & Wagnalls––1904), Poe's only novel.
Enjoy the pics.

Also please enjoy my immersive audio-experience reading of
POE's "THE RAVEN" here:
