(The Feature Film)

So...the HNM editing and post-production continues. Everything is going very well, but filmmaking is––per usual––a very, very slow and tedious process. I have been perfecting the edit for what might be called the second section (or Act II) of the film (see pic#2 of the Final Cut Pro timeline as compared to the more-complete Act I in pic#1 of the FCP timeline). When completed, this will make for one hour of movie––maybe a bit more; then another 45 to 50 minutes of HNM movie will be left to edit and process. Still much to do.

In the meantime, enjoy a few pics of Producer MATTHEW SANDERSON (working the boom mic) as I video/record actors TONY SIMMONS and GABRIEL SIGAL for audio––several lines to be used as Voice Over. Keep your fingers crossed for an early 2020 release of HUMAN NO MORE!

RUTGER HAUER Dies At 75, July 19, 2019
2019––In this year in the film BLADE RUNNER, so passed the iconic character of ROY BATTY, and so has also passed in real life, the iconic actor RUTGER HAUER who portrayed the dying replicant to perfection.
So saddened to hear of RUTGER HAUER's passing this last July 19th in the Netherlands. Although he was always great in every film I saw him in––LADYHAWKE, THE HITCHER, BATMAN BEGINS, to mention only a few––he will always be in my heart and mind as that amazing actor who delivered that iconic final monologue as he died in one of my all-time favorite films BLADE RUNNER. I am forever influenced and grateful.

As my friend and creative-producer Matthew Sanderson pointed out to me: HAUER's ROY BATTY died in BLADER RUNNER in the then future year 2019, and has also passed away in real life in 2019. And, I might add, on the 19th of July.

R.I.P. RUTGER HAUER, you will be missed and forever a part of the dark muse that drives the creative writer and filmmaker in me. And the musician too––if you know the lyrics I wrote for the ABOUT 9 TIMES song SUN CAKE.

The 100th Monkey Press is a resource dedicated to providing an accurate and complete bibliography of the literary output of Aleister Crowley and selected other writers.  This is an ongoing effort and the various bibliographies will continue to be updated as we receive new information.

"My scheme from the first was to create complexity and rarity."
 ––Aleister Crowley (on his publishing methods)

Aleister Crowley (/ˈkroʊli/; born Edward Alexander Crowley; 12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947) was an English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer. He founded the religion and philosophy of Thelema, identifying himself as the prophet entrusted with guiding humanity into the Æon of Horus in the early 20th century.

Crowley Texts

The 100th Monkey Story:
A Legend and A Hypothesis 

The Japanese monkey, Macaca fuscata, has been observed in the wild for a period of over 30 years. In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.
An 18-month-old-female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers, too...
