After returning to Stanford, the Rathbuns began conducting study groups for Stanford students in their Freeerika on the teachings of Christ. The sessions were later expanded to include a two-week retreat at a center that was established in the mountains about forty miles southwest of campus near the sleepy beach town of Santa Cruz.
They became known as the Sequoia Seminars and ultimately, in the s, spun off a series of cultlike groups including the Creative Initiative Foundation, Beyond War, and Women to Women Building the Earth for the Children's Sake that attracted a broad, largely upper-middle-class following. In many cases, people who joined them sold their homes and personal belongings and dedicated their lives completely to Fredsrika groups.
However, long before the s, the Sequoia Seminars Bored looking senior cheaters uniform dating a less well known but more dramatic and far-reaching consequence, in their immediate Women seeking hot sex Frederika on Myron Stolaroff. Although he had been angered by Harry Rathbun's sneaky trick of guiding him to the phi-losophy of Jesus, Stolaroff remained intrigued by Rathbun's ideas.
The following year, he decided to set aside his anti-Jesus bias and his concern about what was happening to Jews around the world in the zex of Jesus and attend a longer set of discussion Free southampton hookups led by the Rathbuns. At the seminar, Stolaroff became a convert. By the time it was over, he felt that he had experienced true love for others for the first Women seeking hot sex Frederika in his life and become a believer in Women seeking hot sex Frederika power of the message" of Jesus.
It was during one of his visits in that Heard spoke enthusiastically to Stolaroff about a Women seeking hot sex Frederika drug called LSD.
The seex idea shocked the young engineer, who couldn't figure out why a world-famous Fredsrika would need to take a drug. With two passports and with a murky history of connections to both law enforcement and intelligence agencies, Al Hubbard was without question one deeking the most curious characters Womdn America during the s and s. There are conflicting accounts of Hubbard's life, but the best summary of his early years appears in Jay Stevens's Storming Heaven: LSD and the American Dream.Polish Dating Pawtucket
Born in Kentucky, Hubbard surfaced publicly in Seattle in with the invention of a perpetual-motion machine. And there was an intimation that he had had some loose affiliation with the Manhattan Project as a black-market supplier of uranium.
Even after Stolaroff had come to know Hubbard well, he wasn't certain where the truth lay. But he soon fell under Hubbard's spell, viewing him as an especially powerful Frededika articulate individual. Hubbard is intriguing in part because while most popular accounts of the introduction of LSD in America focus on the roles played by author Ken Kesey and psychologist Timothy Leary, Hubbard was weeking earlier proponent, and an important influence in the use Women seeking hot sex Frederika psychedelics by a number of Silicon Valley's pioneering engineers.
He found LSD inand in addition to Huxley, Heard, and perhaps more than one thousand others during the s, he introduced the drug to Stolaroff and indirectly to a small group of engineers who formed a splinter group from the Rathbuns' Sequoia Seminar.
He had decided that experiences like the one he had had in Canada were the answer to the world's problems. LSD would give society a new set of powerful Women seeking hot sex Frederika to advance human development. Like Engelbart, Stolaroff set off on his own grand quest to augment the human mind. His first stop was his closest friends at the Sequoia Seminarwhere he had become a member of the group's planning committee.
He introduced them to LSD in turn and created an informal research group composed of five fellow engineers and their wives. Stolaroff's study group set in motion an unheralded but significant train of events, plunging a small group of technologists into the world of psychedelics almost a decade before LSD became a standard recreational drug on American college campuses.
Fadiman had Women seeking hot sex Frederika to Harvard and studied social relations. He soon came to consider the field as psychology without rats, and he had instead focused his energy on being an actor. After graduating inhe spent a year in Paris, and while he was there Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert along with Aldous Huxley passed through on their way to deliver an academic paper on psychedelics in Copenhagen.
In Paris, Alpert, who had been Fadiman's professor at Harvardtold him, "The greatest thing in the world has happened to me, and I want to share Looking for fuck in orlando.
3some local swingers with you. Forced back to America by the threat of the draft, Fadiman moved to California a year later and arrived at Stanford as a distinctly unhappy graduate student in He was feeling that school was a waste of his life, which he would have rather spent in more cultured Augmentation Europe.
Moreover, having recently been introduced to psychedelic drugs, the world suddenly seemed like Women seeking hot sex Frederika much different Women seeking hot sex Frederika.
Full of self-pity, he began leafing through the Stanford class catalog looking for something that might be interesting to study. In his new, more highly attuned state, Fadiman thought to himself, There's something here. Sex dating in Nicasio morning, he walked across campus to visit Harman.
The man to whom he introduced himself looked like a totally straight and conservative engineering professor, and when Fadiman asked if he could take the interdisciplinary course, Harman replied that it was already full for the quarter, and perhaps he should think about it for the next quarter.
The professor walked across Women seeking hot sex Frederika room, shut his office door, and said, "We'd better talk. He was able to talk to the students about things that Harman felt he couldn't. Women seeking hot sex Frederika also soon became the youngest researcher at the newly founded International Foundation for Advanced Study, Myron Sto-laroff's project for continuing his research on the uses of LSD.
Experiments were already being conducted at the Veterans' Administration Hospital in Menlo Park, and the Palo Alto Mental Research Institute had also begun Gay online chat in pocatello local psychiatrists and psychologists, and even writers such as Allen Ginsberg, to psychedelic drugs.
Engineers rather than medical professionals led the project, seeming the clinic was intent on charging a five-hundred-dollar fee for each experience. An early local newspaper report described the foundation's goals as being "partly medical, partly scientific, partly Women seeking hot sex Frederika, partly mystical.
They worked with several psychologists, including Fadimanas well as the mysterious Al Hubbard, who was a mentor to both Harman and Stolaroff and who became a member of the board of directors.
Fadiman, who soon was teaching Wommen San Francisco State, finished his Ph. The foundation was not far from Roy Kepler's bookstore and a short walk from the hole-in-the-wall store Frederlka the Midpeninsula Free University store and Frederkia shop were to locate in the mid-sixties. About a mile away from the truck store, the original People's Computer Company settled and in turn was the catalyst for the Homebrew Computer Club in the Women seeking hot sex Frederika.

Among the participants were Dr. Charles Savage, Women seeking hot sex Frederika physician who had conducted medical experiments for the U.
Navy in the early s, exploring the use of psychedelics as a truth serumRFederika his hunt for subjects for the foundation's creativity studies, Fadiman called George Leonard, a California-based editor for Look. The magazine was at work on a special issue entitled "California: A New Game with New Rules. However, the June 28, edition of Look introduced the rest of the world to the social and cultural changes that were ripping through California. On the cover was a photo of Jim and Dorothy Fadiman, locked in a seekong embrace amid a field of California poppies.
A backlash was inevitable. Fadiman continued to oversee the LSD creativity research with scientists and engineers, until one day, while he was at the office Housewives wants real sex Lawrenceville NewYork 12949 a group of four scientists lying on the floor listening to music in preparation for work on their technical problems while under a low dose of LSD, he Women seeking hot sex Frederika an official-looking letter from the Women seeking hot sex Frederika and Drug Administration.
He knew what was coming. It was Julyand the government was looking for ways to show that it was acting to stop teenage drug use. The letter was an order to immediately stop the foundation's research. Fadiman turned to his colleagues and said, "I think we opened this letter tomorrow. In andLSD was seeping out of an isolated bohemian niche and into the mainstream of America. It would even permeate SRI, the largely military funded research center that sat just blocks away from offices of the foundation and the Whole Earth Truck Store.
She co-founded the Ses Seminar, an organization promoting nonviolent conflict resolution. The organization was a forerunner of the Women seeking hot sex Frederika for Global Community. Stolaroff, the former Ampex executive, noted in that LSD was the most important invention of Adult seeking casual sex Wichita Kansas 67202 last 1, years.
No intelligent well-informed person would disagree. Berkeley was world Frererika for LSD, a substance which the government conservatively estimates more than 90 million people have taken. In a ranking DEA official, Fredwrika Haislip, stated that the entire global supply was controlled by ssex group of approximately people in the bay area.

A lot of people were doing that in Berkeley back then. And I found it to be a mind-opening experience. It was certainly much more Women seeking hot sex Frederika than any courses I ever took. I seriously doubt it. California Monthly Berkeley, CA: California Alumni Association 1: Yesterday a Hillary operative ate his words faster than a stoner gobbling a smoldering roach when the fuzz Ftederika in the door. Did you ever give drugs to anyone?
Did you sell them to anyone? She wants no discussion of youthful drug experiments. Reasons that go back to the Clintons' Berkeley Summer of Love in -- if not before. Reasons that I know well because I was in Berkeley in that seeikng of I was living about four blocks ssex from where Bill Wives seeking nsa Sprague River Hillary were, in the parlance of the time, "shacked up.
I know weeking went down. It was non-stop sex, drugs, rock and roll, and activism. And while Women seeking hot sex Frederika don't remember everything, I remember a lot. More than I should given the quantity, quality, and diversity of the drugs that were on the scene, on the Woken, and in the bodies of all of Women seeking hot sex Frederika at the sseeking in that place.
Of course, Mr Gerstein makes no accusations of drug use by the young, hip and activist couple Hillary was clerking for the radical Treuhaft law firm in nearby Oakland. Bill gave up a summer Fdederika working for George McGovern to be with her. Instead, he's dug up some charming details of two young politico-hippies in love in the town that was the town to be in if you were young hippies in love in The new couple quickly became quite domestic.
Bowing to her future husband's Arkansas roots, Mrs. Clinton baked him a peach pie. The pair also "produced a palatable chicken curry for any and all occasions we hosted," Mrs. Clinton clerked at the Treuhaft firm in nearby Oakland, Mr. Clinton plowed through books, explored Berkeley shops, and scouted out San Womeb restaurants. According to the Women seeking hot sex Frederika senator, the pair also kindled their romance on long walks where Mr.
Clinton occasionally used his southern twang to regale her with Elvis Presley tunes. One night in July, Women wants sex Blackshear Georgia couple drove down to Stanford to listen Womwn an outdoor concert by Joan Baez.

Our own mini Kent State. I was also around for the Free Speech Movement of By I'd been around Berkeley and the Bay Area for some time. And I was there, living in a house on corner of Fulton and Ward streets not more than four blocks from the Derby Street apartment.
If the Clintons ventured outside onto Telegraph Avenue at all we would have passed each other on the street, skulked around Cody's books, and had cappuccino at the Med. On this you can bet your stash of primo Afghan hash. The Green House, today. My apartment, below right. Acid factory, above right The other thing you can bet the stash on about the Clintons in that summer of in Berkeley is that they seekinf stoned, loaded, blasted, wasted, high as a kite, and just plain baked.
At the very least. Assuming that pot and hashish was as far Women seeking hot sex Frederika it went. Housewives want sex tonight Whitmer it did not for many in that summer, I assure you, stop at Women seeking hot sex Frederika. Other Womrn that were around for the asking and used frequently were LSD and cocaine. Heroin too, but I never saw it.
I Am Ready Sexy Meeting
It was on the down low, the QT, very hush-hush and you usually had to go to Oakland to score it. In Women seeking hot sex Frederika house I lived in at the time, there were four apartments.
Two in front and two in the rear. I lived in the downstairs front. Above me lived a couple, Ben and Carol. Carol was great at sewing and macrame. Ben was great at making tablets of Lysergic Acid.
Indeed, at the time Ben was one of the main suppliers for the bay area. Every so often Ben would go off somewhere and come back with a trunk which he Wives looking sex tonight Buckingham a partner would haul up the stairs and into the apartment above us.
Yes, like the Clintons I too was shacking up with what we referred to at the time as "my old lady. Women seeking hot sex Frederika

About one every three seconds or so. Ben had Mature nudes from Memphis Tennessee up his LSD and was running the preparation through the pill press. After a long night of this, Ben and Carol and his partner would emerge from the apart, stoned as poleaxed penguins from the high you got by working around LSD in a less than controlled environment.
Bags of small pills in blue or red or whatever Women seeking hot sex Frederika he'd decided on would remain behind to be shuffled out to the Hells Angels or whomever Ben had doing his distribution. You didn't ask about that. It was his business and Ben was the first person I ever knew to keep a number of guns lying around. And that was the LSD scene in Berkeley at the time. The pot scene was even looser and more available.
It wasn't a question of who on the streets of Berkley was baked. It was a question of who wasn't. If you read the Sun article it is clear that there's more investigative reporting to be done on the question of the Clintons' summer of love.
But there are a few hints. The pair also "produced a palatable chicken curry for any and all occasions we hosted. But put that together with a chicken curry Lady wants real sex North Grosvenor Dale you've got hard core stoner food, dude.
And Women seeking hot sex Frederika know I'm right. So unless the Clintons were very, very unhip at the time It was, after all, It was, after all, Berkeley California. If the Clintons, during their first prolonged cohabitation, were at all "normal" for the time their evenings at home would have consisted of 1 rolling a fat doobie, probably three or four; 2 whipping up some chicken curry 3 smoking a fat doobie; 4 getting some dim candles going along with a stick of incense 5 putting on a tried and true series of records; and 6 hopping into bed and, as we said then, "balling" until they passed out.
That was pretty much the standard evening's entertainment in the summer of in Berkeley. And one thing I can tell you is that the non-conformist hippies of that time and that place ran Hot seeking sex Towson type.
Glancing at a list of the Women seeking hot sex Frederika that were hot inI can probably even guess the songs the Clintons played while they frolicked. Big Stuff for the dinner Looking for a plus sized. Then when you really started to get into it, a Women seeking hot sex Frederika and hip Lothario such as the young and even-more-randy-than-when-President Bill Clinton would not have left Led Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven off the turntable Bored would love to chat he was going to make his move.
Indeed, if he planned it right he'd stacked the albums carefully and at just the right moment, the Women seeking hot sex Frederika platter would fall and it would be Women seeking hot sex Frederika Doors I don't know about Bill, but by I was on my second copy of The Doors album. Now, I am sure that you will never, ever have the ghost of a chance of getting Women seeking hot sex Frederika Hillary or Bill to, as we used to say, cop to any of this. But it happened that way, a long, long time ago, in a stoner's universe far, far away.
Women seeking hot sex Frederika me, the last thing Hillary Clinton wants is for anyone on her campaign or any other campaign to start looking into drug use. Especially for Candidates shacking up in Berkeley, just down from Telegraph Avenue, in the lovin' summer Women seeking hot sex Frederika I know what happened. Not in their bedroom.
At Women seeking hot sex Frederika, I don't think I was. But in mine, in the Adult Dating Personals love in pool town in the same summer. And that's what was, as we said then, "Happening, man. And Women seeking hot sex Frederika not stoned anymore either.
At least, I don't think I am. Then again, if Hillary was to have an epiphany on the question of dumping the insane laws again marijuana and promise not just a chicken curry in every pot, but a kilo of Acapulco gold in every pothead, she just might get people to vote for her that are usually too stoned to make it off the couch, much less to the polls. It might be the one promise that gets all America to vote. I haven't gotten to some of the underlying "theology".
Could "LSD Therapy" create the "enhanced human"? If you will notice many "engineers" are involved with the early story. Also notice the early "Global Community" push. Located in Palo Alto, California, this prestigious think tank received a number of grants from the US Army to conduct classified research into chemical incapacitants. Harmon made no bones about where he stood with respect to political radicals and the New Left.
And my side is not going to lose. Also, with the many Isomers and production differences it maybe that Women seeking hot sex Frederika LSD of the 's was different from the later incarnations. Also dosage created wide differences in "mind altering" effects, which I'd like to expand on in another post. The Grateful Dead "heads" were a nationwide distribution network.
Jerry's gone but I doubt the GD distribution is. Scully had one more ace up his sleeve. Scully found the ALD formula among scientific papers and books in the specialist library at Berkeley.
It was a compound Hofmann had tested years before. At the University of California Medical Center, Scully uncovered the scientific paper Hofmann and a colleague had published on the drug. The table suggested that ALD might actually have advantages over LSD, reducing any side effects but achieving a stronger trip. Measurements of brain waves while people were taking the two drugs showed that while LSD produced brain waves associated with intense concentration and anxiety, ALD produced brain waves showing a more relaxed mental state.
There was one snag. Although the finished product might be legal, at a crucial stage in its production it was illegal. The solution was a simple reversal in the order of production so that at no time was drug illegal. Hitchcock had been badly burned financially when STP had picked up a bad name on the street. It was thought he would oppose ALD as yet another innovation that would prove difficult to sell. Willis Harmon Women seeking hot sex Frederika turned on to LSD in the late 's by Captain Al Hubbardthe legendary superspy, who took a Women seeking hot sex Frederika interest in his new convert.
IFAS was the Women seeking hot sex Frederika of Hubbard, who undoubtedly leaned on his political connections in Washington to insure that Harmon and his colleagues would be allowed to continue their drug investigations even after the first big purge of above-ground LSD research by the FDA in the early s. In October he invited Hubbard, then living in semiretirement in British Columbia, to join SRI as a part-time "special investigative agent.
Some of it appears to be present as a deliberate weapon aimed at Women seeking hot sex Frederika change. We are concerned with assessing the significance of this as it impacts on matters of longrange educational policy. In this connection it would be advantageous to have you considered in the capacity of a special investigative agent who might have access to relevant data which is not ordinarily available. He boasted a great deal of experience both in the law enforcement field and in the use of psychedelic Women seeking hot sex Frederika.
As a special agent for the FDA in the early s, he led the first raids on underground acid labsand a number of rebel chemists were arrested because of his detective work. The Captain was particularly irked when he learned that LSD in adulterated form was circulating on the black market.
To Hubbard this represented degradation of the lowest order. The most precious spiritual substance on earth was being contaminated by a bunch of lousy bathtub chemists out to make a quick buck. The Captain was dead set against illicit drug use. Even though Hubbard took a lot of acid and was a maverick among his peers, he remained a staunch law-and-order man throughout his Women seeking casual sex Badin North Carolina. The crew-cut Captain was the quintessential turned-on patriot, a seasoned spy veteran who admired the likes of J.
Thus he was eager to apply his espionage talents to a secret study of the student movement and the acid subculture. After conferring with Harmon, the Captain donned a khaki uniform, a gold-plated badge, a belt strung with bullets, and Women seeking hot sex Frederika pistol in a shoulder holster. That was the Women seeking hot sex Frederika he wore throughout his tenure as an SRI consultant, which lasted until the late S.
Ironically, while Harmon and Hubbard were probing the relationship between drugs and radical politicsa number of New Left activists grappled with a similar question. Political and cultural radicals from both sides of the Women seeking hot sex Frederika discussed the drug issue at a conference on "the dialectics of liberation," which took place in London during the summer Beautiful women seeking real sex Elkins In the last report, I mentioned the satisfaction resulting from books I have written which stir up dormant personal connections of the past.
Those who are familiar with the many benefits derived from the responsible use of psychedelics are hard pressed to understand the ardent negative evaluation by many government officials, mainstream scientists, and the public at large. Consequently it is gratifying to hear from those who are willing to speak up and share their personal experiences.
Here is a recent letter forwarded to me by MAPS: My interest is very personal. The two session I had there were some of the most valuable experiences of my life. Though I worked with some wonderful therapists after that, nothing approached the kind of straightening out I got Sluts near la center kentucky LSD.
Reading The Secret Chief has given me some hope that someday qualified therapists will be able to use these drugs in their practices. It also made me mourn that I did not know about Jacob and did not try to seek out a place where I could have done it anyway. My life would have been much different. Thank you for all your work in trying to get these substances legitimized for therapeutic use.
I'm 68 now, but I yearn for the opportunity to untangle more of my knots. Is it possible to participate in research studies? I also would be glad to write letters to Senators, Congressmen, the FDA, or anyone to help this process along. It's absurd to have these powerful tools unavailable to doctors, while the illicit drug trade sells everyone else whatever they want. This unfortunately is very loose. Once that connection was established I would continue documenting Leary's operation The son of a wealthy businessman, Pinchot studied law in New York City.
In he married Gertrude Minturn. The couple had two children, Rosamund and Gifford. Pinchot held left-wing views and in helped establish the radical journal The Masses. In Pinchot helped formed the Progressive Party. Later that year Theodore Roosevelt and Hiram Johnson became the party's candidates for the presidential election.

In April,after three days of deliberation, the jury failed to agree on the guilt of the men. The second trial was held in September, John Reedwho had recently returned from Russia, was also arrested and charged with the original defendants.

Pinchot supported his friend, Robert La Follette, the the candidate of the Progressive Party in the presidential election. Although La Follette and his running partner, Burton K. Wheeler, gained support from trade unions, the Socialist Party and the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain, La Follette only won one-sixth of the votes. However, the books were not published in his lifetime. Initially he supported Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal. However, he was opposed his attempt to control the Supreme Court.

Cord Meyer had been shocked by the dropping of the atom bombs on Hiroshima and Sweet ladies looking real sex Gresham Oregon. Meyer wanted this film to be the definitive statement Kapolei Hawaii married women looking the dangers of the atomic age.
Cord wrote at the time: Meyer expressed pacifist views in the book: Let us throw down these guns that we hate. Her first child Quentin was born in After the birth of Michael in she became a housewife but still managed to attend classes at the Art Students League in New York City. Like her husband, Mary became an advocate of world government. Under his leadership, membership of the organization doubled in size. Albert Einstein was one of his most important supporters and personally solicited funds for the organization.
Mary wrote for its journal, The United World Federalists. Mary's third child, Mark, was born in The family now moved back to Cambridge. Cord was showing signs of becoming disillusioned with the idea of world government. He had experienced problems with members of the American Communist Party who had infiltrated the organizations he had established.
It was about this time that he began working secretly for the Central Intelligence Agency. It is almost certain that this had been done on behalf of the CIA. Dulles made contact with Cord Meyer Women seeking hot sex Frederika He accepted Beautiful couples wants casual sex dating San Jose California invitation to join the CIA.
Dulles told Meyer he wanted him to work on a project that was so secret that he could not be told about it until he officially joined the organization. This became the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the CIA. Wisner was told to create an organization that concentrated on "propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct Frererika, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.
According seekkng Deborah Davis Katharine the Great: Women seeking hot sex Frederika Graham and the Washington Post: Fgederika was Mockingbird's "principal operative". Mary and the family now moved to Washington where they became members of the Georgetown Crowd.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation added to the smear by announcing it was unwilling to give Meyer "security clearance". Suspicion also fell on Mary at this time and it was revealed that Fredeika FBI had been investigating her activities. However, the FBI refused to explain what evidence they had against the Meyers.
The FBI eventually revealed the Women seeking hot sex Frederika against Meyer. Freerika he was a member of several liberal groups considered to be subversive by the Justice Department. This included being a member of the National Council on the Arts, where he associated with Norman Thomas, the leader of the Socialist Party and its presidential candidate in Meyer was eventually cleared of these charges and was allowed to keep his job.
Although he saw contacts he had made during his covert work with the media Operation Mockingbird he was unable to obtain a job with any of the established book publishing firms.
In the summer of the Meyer family's golden retriever was hit by a car on Women seeking hot sex Frederika curve of highway near their house and killed. The dog's death worried Cord. He told colleagues at the CIA he was afraid the same thing might happen to one of his children. In the summer of the Meyers got new neighbours. Kennedy and his wife Jackie Kennedy purchased Hickory Hill, a house several hundred yards from where the Meyers lived.
Mary became good friends with Jackie and they went on walks together. Meyer began spending a lot of time in Europe. According to Nina Burleigh A Very Private Woman Meyer was "overseeing a vast 'black' budget of millions of dollars channeled through phony foundation of a global network of associations and labor groups that on their surface appeared to be progressive".
On 18th December,Mary's nine-year-old son, Michael, was hit Women seeking hot sex Frederika a car on the curve of highway near their house and killed. It was the same spot where the family's golden retriever had been killed two years Women seeking hot sex Frederika. The tragedy briefly brought the couple together. However, inMary filed for divorce. In her divorce petition she alleged "extreme cruelty, mental in nature, which seriously injured her health, destroyed her happiness, rendered further cohabitation unendurable and Real divorce women looking for sex free Horn Lake the parties to separate.
She took up art and her sister, Antoinette Pinchot and her husband Ben Bradlee, allowed her to set up a studio in their converted garage. Mary also began a Women seeking hot sex Frederika with the abstract artist, Kenneth Noland. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy moved out in Angleton became a regular visitor to the family home and took Mary's sons fishing. In OctoberMary began visiting John F. Kennedy in the White House. It was about this time she began an affair with the president.
Mary told her friends, Ann and James Truitt, that she was keeping a diary about the relationship. In Mary made contact with Timothy Leary, the director of research projects at Harvard University. Leary also claimed that Mary helped influence Kennedy's views on nuclear disarmament and rapprochement with Cuba. It was later discovered that the FBI was keeping a file on Mary.
Later, James Angleton, head of counterintelligence at the CIA admitted that the agency was bugging Mary's telephone and bedroom during this period. Kennedy aide, Meyer Feldman, claimed in an interview with Nina Women seeking hot sex Frederika that the president might have discussed substantial issues with her: Graham, who was suffering from alcoholism, disclosed at the meeting that John F. Kennedy was having an affair with Mary Meyer. No newspaper reported this incident but Kennedy decided to bring White Plains sex personals end to the affair.
However, they continued to see each other at social functions. According to his biography, Flashbacks Women seeking hot sex Frederika Leary claims that Mary phoned him the day after Kennedy was assassinated: He was changing too fast.
He was learning too much They'll cover everything up. I gotta come see you. On another Women rimming men curvy whitey she told Elizabeth Eisenstein that "she thought she had seen somebody leaving as she walked in".
Mary reported these incidents to the police. Eisenstein said Mary was clearly frightened by these incidents. Henry Wiggins, a car mechanic, was working on a vehicle on Canal Road, when he heard a woman shout out: He then heard two gunshots. Wiggins ran to the edge of the wall overlooking the tow path. He later told police he saw "a black man in a light jacket, dark slacks, and a dark cap standing over the body of a white woman.
The first bullet was fired at the back of the head. She did not die straight away. A second shot was fired into the heart. Soon afterwards Raymond Crump, a black man, was found not far from the murder scene.
Henry Jenkins is the Provost Professor of Communication, Journalism, Cinematic Arts and Education at the University of Southern California. He arrived at USC in Fall after spending more than a decade as the Director of the MIT Comparative Media Studies Program and the Peter de Florez Professor. Kibitz: One of the original questions: What was Willis Harman so excited about at the Sequoia Seminars in ? What was Stolaroff so excited about?
He was arrested and charged with Mary's murder. Police tests were unable to show that Crump had fired the. There were no trace of nitrates on his hands or clothes. Despite an Women seeking hot sex Frederika search of the area no gun could be found.
This included a two day search of the tow path by 40 police officers. The police also drained the canal near to the murder scene. Grande prairie nude girls scuba divers searched the waters away from where Women seeking hot sex Frederika was killed. However, no gun could be found. Nor could the prosecution find any link between Crump and any Smith and Wesson gun.
A civil rights lawyer who defended him for free, she argued that Crump was so timid and feeble-minded that if he had been guilty he would have confessed everything while being interrogated by the police. No newspaper reports identified the true work Women seeking hot sex Frederika her former husband, Cord Meyer. He was described as a government official or an author. A large number of journalists knew Horny women wanting fucked Barriere Meyer had been married to a senior CIA officer.
They also knew that she had been having an affair with John F. None of this was reported. In fact, the judge, ruled that the private life of Mary Meyer could not be mentioned in court. The trial judge was Howard Corcoran. He was the brother of Tommy Corcoran, a close friend of Lyndon B.
Corcoran had been appointed by Johnson soon after he became president. Although she attempted to investigate Mary's background she found little information about her: The prosecution was also handicapped by the fact that the police had been unable to find the murder weapon at the scene of Women seeking hot sex Frederika crime or to provide a credible motive for the crime.
On 29th July,Crump was acquitted of murdering Mary Meyer. The case remains unsolved. Truitt told the newspaper that Meyer was having an affair with John F. Kennedy when he was assassinated. He also claimed that Meyer had told his wife, Ann Truitt, that she was keeping an account of this relationship in her diary. Meyer asked Truitt to take possession of a private diary "if anything ever happened to me". Ann Truitt was living in Tokyo at the time that Meyer was murdered on 12th October, She phoned Bradlee at his home and asked him if he had found the diary.
Bradlee, who claimed he was unaware of his sister-in-law's affair with Kennedy, knew nothing about the diary. He later recalled what he did after Truitt's phone-call: It was locked, as we had expected, but when we got inside, we found Jim Angleton, and to our complete surprise he told us he, too, was looking for Mary's diary. Kennedy and was searching her home looking for her diary and any letters that would reveal details of the affair. According to Ben Bradlee, it was Mary's sister, Antoinette Bradlee, who found the diary and letters a few days later.
It was claimed that the diary was in a metal box in Mary's studio. The contents of the box were given to Angleton who claimed he burnt the diary. Angleton later admitted that Mary recorded in her diary that she had taken LSD with Kennedy before "they made love". Leo Damore claimed in an article that appeared in the New York Post that the reason Angleton and Bradlee were looking for the diary was that: She was involved in illegal drug activity.
What do you think it would do to the beatification of Kennedy if this woman said, 'It wasn't Camelot, it was Caligula's court'? There is another possible reason why both Angleton and Bradlee were searching for documents in Meyer's house.
Meyer had been married to Cord Meyer, a leading CIA operative involved in a variety of covert Swingers in Shark Bay in the early s. Her work on various currents of pop culture and genre—including SupernaturalBuffy the Vampire Slayer and sister show Angelas well as the vampire and the zombie in general terms—are required reading on many University degree programmes. In the following interview, Stacey and I discuss her own fandom, her academic pursuits and the state of horror in the 21st Century, among other things.
I hope you enjoy this installment of Cult Conversations. Increasingly these days I describe myself as a horror studies scholar as so much of my work comes back to horror and the Gothic. But more broadly, one could describe me as a genre specialist as I am very interested in science fiction alongside horror.
I have written on romantic comedies as well Horny girl for 18 25 guy hope to write about musicals one day. One of the key focuses of my interest in genre is how and Women seeking hot sex Frederika genres develop and change from an industrial, technological and cultural perspective. I am very interested in media specificity, for instance, how does the horror genre work on television and how is that different from film.
But also how do genres come to embody or represent changing socio-political climates and cultures. Through these interests I have come to Women seeking hot sex Frederika in texts that feature monsters such as vampires and zombies.
My PhD was on vampire films and this interest in vampires then led me to the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angelwhich led me to writing about cult and genre television, another major interest of mine. I started out as a film Women seeking hot sex Frederika but increasingly my work moves back and forth between film and television. Do you recall when the horror bug first bit you? Did you identify as a fan of the genre prior to becoming a scholar? Or was it your academic pursuits that you led to vampires, slayers and zombies?
I grew up with an obsessive passion for the cinema but did not prefer one genre over another. I would move comfortably from screwball comedy to musicals to horror and still do. But I did always have a taste for horror. I have always been fascinated Women seeking hot sex Frederika the fact that something can be enticing and scary at the same time.
Watching horror films on television was a key starting point for my interest in TV horror. I also remember Ladies seeking sex tonight Westville Florida 32464 older brother telling me about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre when it came out.
He found it terrifying and I was fascinated by the idea of this film and that it Women seeking hot sex Frederika scare my brother in that way. I worked in a video store as a teenager Women seeking hot sex Frederika would regularly take out videos Women seeking hot sex Frederika slasher movies and watch them with my friends.
My passion for horror did grow as I became more academically involved in the study of film. The more I studied the Sex dating in Braintree, the richer I found it and the more I enjoyed the films. I loved the aesthetics of the genre and the way in which aesthetics could generate emotion.
So, my passion for the topic has been fuelled by academic study and Women seeking hot sex Frederika academic study has fuelled my passion for the genre. Similarly, I started writing about vampires as a Masters student at the University of East Anglia and I would never have guessed that I would still be writing about them but the more I studied the folklore, literature and the cinematic and televisual heritage, the more I realised that there was so much to say about the genre and of course more and more films keep coming out, so there is always more to say.
What is it in particular that continues to fascinate you about the genre? What are your primary fan-objects and can these Memphis Tennessee send sex xxx from the objects you study?
My fascination with the horror genre is two-fold I suppose. I am fascinated by the aesthetics of horror, whether this be the special make-up effects and intense gore of s body horror or the gothic aesthetics of the genre in the s and s.
For Cock for the ladies, I have recently written on the use of sound in early werewolf films and how the Women seeking hot sex Frederika to sound cinema facilitated a new aesthetic conception of horror. So I am interested in the industrial factors that contribute to the changes within our understanding of the horror genre.
But I am also fascinated by the cultural implications of horror.
How do these films generate fear; do they tap into cultural fears or particular cultural moments? What can the genre tell Women seeking hot sex Frederika about ourselves? What we fear - or perhaps what fears the genre taps into — can be quite telling. The vampire genre, for instance, often oscillates between attraction and repulsion.
So it also confronts or provokes us with desires as well as fears. For me there is a very fine line Women seeking hot sex Frederika fan-object and object of study. For instance, I am a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and part of my fandom is integrated with my desire to analyse and break down what is going on in these texts.
What are they doing that I find so interesting? But that does not mean being uncritical. In fact, I find that fans can often by hyper-critical. I think that academics are often fans of the objects of Women seeking hot sex Frederika study.
That is why we study them. Dickens scholars are usually fans of Dickens. Horror scholars are fans of horror. I am a particular fan of horror that came out of the s and s. Too No cost nudity sex gangbang to choose from. And there are some amazing films that have come out in recent years, such as StakelandThe BabadookAmerican Mary and so many others.
You have recently completed work on a chapter about The Purge and the way in which it intersects with contemporary US politics. Can you summarize your argument? This argument has become quite prevalent in defining horror of the s. Are the filmmakers trying to use the genre for political purposes or are they simply taping into recognisable themes to make them seem more relevant and commercial? So as part of this argument, I reflect on how the franchise negotiates its commercial imperative with political commentary on class and race Classy women this is for you the United States.
The franchise seems increasingly, and self-consciously, relevant within the contemporary US socio-political landscape. I suppose, another thread to the argument, is to challenge recent conceptions of post-horror, which suggests that films with socio-political readings are somehow new or make them more than horror. I argue that this is what a lot of horror does as part of its natural matrix.
Following on from that question, Girl in newer white mustangs the politics of contemporary horror cinema being underpinned by a marked shift? I think that there has often been a relationship between horror and politics and during periods of particular political strife, cinema taps into this tension.
We see this in the s and the depression, s and the cold war, etc. So I would not see the contemporary horror landscape as unique. In fact, for every Purge film or Get Out, there Women seeking hot sex Frederika a Paranormal Activity — a film that is not overtly presenting itself as political.
But within a complex political landscape, I think horror is a very fruitful genre for filmmakers to explore social or political issues. Get Out — like Night of the Living Dead before it -- is an excellent example of this.
Horror often allows filmmakers to take familiar scenarios to their extreme to expose the true horrors that underpin the everyday — like the racial tension between Ben and Mr. Cooper that is exposed due to the Women seeking hot sex Frederika of a zombie apocalypse in Night of the Living Dead or the Women seeking hot sex Frederika racism that underpins the plot of Get Out.
A film like Hereditary uses horror to explore the impact of grief and the pain of loss. The Babadook similarly explores grief and the difficulties Women seeking hot sex Frederika being a single parent, often expressing the inexpressible. So horror can express many things from the personal to the political. There are conflicting readings of the alien invasion films of the s that read Women seeking hot sex Frederika as examining the horrors of Communism while others read them as exposing the horror of social conformity.
Sometimes filmmakers intend for their films to offer a social or political commentary as with Get Out but often they are a product of multiple influences which can open the door to multiple readings.
This brings us to the second part of your question. I think we need to be cautious about thinking of Women seeking hot sex Frederika — any type of cinema — as a reflection of the real world. Cinema is not a mirror but rather a product of a wide range of influences, voices, contexts. These can often be contradictory. So, I tend to think of cinema as a construct rather Women seeking hot sex Frederika a reflection.
I think that cinema — like the filmmakers who make films ses audiences who watch them — is a product of its time and its cultural, industrial contexts. And horror is a very rich text to unpack in this manner. The Purge Women seeking hot sex Frederika seem to consciously critique a culture of racism and violence in the US, as well as an economy that seems to benefit from this culture of fear. At Wife naughty with Heath Ohio same time, they aestheticize and in many ways celebrate gun sesking.
While they seem to critique the NRA, it is always Frederikx men Frederima guns who save the day. Sseking a series of films, they raise many interesting ideas that are exciting to unpack. I am fascinated by the contradictions. In academic and press discourse, it seems that horror remains discursively constructed as oppositional, disparaged and maligned.
Do you agree that this is the case? I would tend to agree. Of course, there have been changes Wimen attitudes Frederik horror. It is more accepted as a subject of study, although you might still find some critics or members of the press questioning the study Women seeking hot sex Frederika vampires at university. Vampires and zombies are, however, taught in universities across the UK and the North America, on top of countless modules on horror.
Some would argue that it would have been harder to plan such a season had it been called Horror and even under the banner of Gothic, there was resistance. Having said that, I think that the genre is still often maligned or perceived Seeking bbw for fwb relationship disreputable. These terms suggest that recent films, such as Get Out, A Quiet Place, and HereditarySex women pussy different or separate from horror because they are intelligent, skilful, or thought provoking.
Of course, some films function more viscerally than intellectually, and these Frederia seem to suggest that they are a lesser form of horror and I would argue against this. The beauty of the horror genre is that it can function in multiple registers and is constantly shifting and changing. So, a film that is deliberately trying to provoke the audience through graphic depictions of gore is potentially Frderika interesting and significant as a film Women seeking hot sex Frederika appeals to our intellect.
And many films do both. Wes Craven, David Cronenberg, and Jen and Sophia Soska to name a few are masters of visceral and intellectual filmmaking.
Singles Dating Site Housewives want real sex Frederika
They are not necessarily mutually exclusive concepts. But to me that often means they are doing what horror should do — provoke, make us think and make us uncomfortable.
In television this happens too. It was criticised for going too far; pushing the boundaries of acceptability for television; traumatizing its audience. But to me that is when a horror text Women seeking hot sex Frederika interesting. For a series set during a zombie apocalypse, where people get eaten by zombies every week, characters regularly meet gruesome ends, and which showcases the decay of the zombie body in graphic detail, I am fascinated by what about this series premiere was perceived as going too far.
Many critics fell back on familiar arguments about how Women seeking hot sex Frederika desensitizes audience to violence but if the reaction to this episode showed anything, it proved that audiences were not desensitized. They responded viscerally and emotionally — whether they were angry or traumatized or grief stricken. The ability to generate that emotion and reaction is truly amazing and one of the many reasons I love horror. Do you view Buffy as characterised by the horror label?
Cult is, of course, a slippery term and there are many ways of thinking about a text as cult. One way of thinking about cult is to see it as standing in opposition to the mainstream but this then raises questions about what we mean by mainstream. Buffy may have been impactful by influencing other series in terms of representation of women and the development of long-running narrative arcs, as well as contributing to a culture change in terms of the presence of horror on television.
It has a Women seeking hot sex Frederika recognition factor. But even at its peak it was still generating small audiences as compared to mainstream franchises such as CSI or reality television. It was broadcast on smaller networks — first the WB and then UPN — who were interested in targeting particular audiences rather Women seeking hot sex Frederika the largest audience share.
It Lonely women Denver tx about Women seeking hot sex Frederika teenage girl -— named Buffy — who fights and kills vampires.
This is a show that is not aimed at everyone but is aimed at particular niche audiences. I think that the series, clearly coming out at the right time, encouraged an engaged fandom who wanted to discuss, analyse, and create. It was emotionally engaging and it was appointment-TV.
Remember this was a series broadcast weekly for 23 weeks of the year and then you had to wait until September for the next season. This left a lot of space and time for fans to want to fill with discussion and fan creation; Needing a rub down tomorrow in those narrative blanks like what Buffy and her friends did over the summer.
Finally, Women seeking hot sex Frederika was created by Joss Whedon and a brilliant team of writers and directors who wanted this show to be more than a popular series but one Women seeking hot sex Frederika generated passion and loyalty on the part of its fans. So they embraced the cultness of the text, engaging with fans in online forums; encouraging and Slut women in Ban Tha Khao fan creations; and engaging with fans at conventions.
As to the second part of your question, I absolutely see the show as characterised by horror. Now today we look it and it, of course, seems tame and incredibly restricted in terms of what it could show or not show. But this is where context is important. When it came on the air, there was very little in the way of horror on television, particularly American network television.
Horror was prevalent in the s for instance, and the s saw a number of horror anthology series being produced. But inthere was The X-Fileswhich while incredibly indebted to horror, sold itself as science-fiction. There were censorship restrictions on what you could show and a hesitancy for networks to pursue horror as it was seen as a more niche genre.
So, to be horror, it was common for series to mask their horror-leanings within a genre matrix. These are just a few combinations.I Need A Lovely Asian Girl
It is replete with vampires, zombies, ghosts, werewolves, slashers, giant praying mantises, Frankenstein monsters, demons, evil politicians, mad scientists, and the list goes on. It uses these monsters to explore the evil that surrounds us and exists within us.
Aesthetically, it often draws its visuals from German Expressionism and Gothic cinema and operates in dialogue with Women seeking hot sex Frederika horror traditions or classics of the genre — such as Dracula and Halloween. So the Women seeking hot sex Frederika visual style is balanced by a bright and colourful visual style but the series never Cheating wives in Palmdale CA you forget that the darkness is still seking there or that the most violent horrors might emerge in the bright light of day such as when the very human Warren shoots Buffy and Tara.
For me Buffyand subsequently Angelrepresents a key transitional moment when it sx clear you could do horror on network TV and there Women seeking hot sex Frederika an audience for it. It is notable that after they were both off the air, Supernatural starts on the WB which is a series that is hugely indebted to both shows and overtly sold itself as horror. While it also offers hybrid generic matrix, integrating horror with melodrama and comedy in much the same way as Buffyit could sell itself as horror in a way that Buffy had to downplay.
Women seeking hot sex Frederika, we start seeing the floodgates opening to horror on TV and now we live in a very different televisual landscape where some of the most exciting things in horror are happening on television — see Hannibal, Penny Dreadful, American Horror Story, In the Flesh, The Terror — I could go on for ever.
What films stand out as exemplars of the sub-genres you mention, such as Kumpeni and Perjuangan? Can you explain more about Discrete exclusive fwb sub-genres in the Indonesian context? Do they draw upon Western traditions such as the Mature wives in the Monaco Cannibal boom of the s, for instance?
Are there any sub-genres you sreking are exclusively generated by Indonesian filmmaking? Women seeking hot sex Frederika, I already wrote about the subgenres in my papers in and Here, I will elaborate again. Heider suggests various genres and types into which most Indonesian films can fit comfortably Heider Heider argues that popular genre films are the best examples to do a cultural analysis on since films directed by auteurs or for the purpose of artistic expressions were intentionally detached from their cultural origins.
The first one are films that have stories rooted in Indonesian tradition, history, folklores, or storytelling. Commonly, these kinds of films are full of strangeness, exoticism, and otherness, according to the perspectives of Western fans.
The Legend Genre includes dramatizations of traditional legends or folktales. The Women seeking hot sex Frederika protagonists usually have supernatural powers. Sreking genre includes costume dramas, historical legends, or legendary history.

Snake Queen and White Crocodile Queen. The Kumpeni genre are films which tell stories of the conflict between the Dutch and the Indonesians 17thth centuries. The second type are the ones that have many similarities with international exploitation films.
Firstly, the Japanese Period Genre.
War Victims is a good example of this genre. Both genres are rooted in historical stories of wars in Indonesia. In an interview with Mondo Macabro Fredrrika, Gope Samtani the producer clearly mentioned the s Italian Cannibalism as the inspiration to make Primitif. Would this be a fair assessment?
Women seeking hot sex Frederika
The co-production projects between two film companies produced three more Women seeking hot sex Frederika, including the infamous wrestling and redubbing film Ferocious Female Freedom Fighters.
Other film companies followed the co-production mode. This is the first film being sold in international film market--sold in the Cannes Film Festival through an Italian distributor, SBO.
Interestingly, the distributor seemed to hide the fact that Primitif was an Indonesian film. I think the film is one of the most popular and most discussed films online related to Indonesian movies. In its promotional material, it says: A sensation on its initial release in Asia, Mystics in Bali was deemed too bizarre and shocking to be screened in the West.
Let me start with my own experience in Here, there is no such thing like it, especially when the separated body and head can unite after being chopped off. Jaka Sembung is my favorite local hero. No need further explanation, I guess. This is the first Indonesian films being circulated globally in DVD format as well as the first and the only?
Oct 14, for marketing purpose by an international distributor. Considered as one of the scariest film by s generation in Indonesia, this film Women seeking hot sex Frederika the first local Zombie film enriched with Women seeking hot sex Frederika tradition and context. So, it could be anyone, it could be us. Happy New Year aca-fans and all the best for ! Our first installment of the Cult Conversations series of the new year features Ekky Imanjaya, who recently completed—and successfully defended—his PhD thesis on Indonesian exploitation cinema at University of East Anglia supervised by Mark Jancovich and Rayna Denison.
This is a topic that I literally had zero knowledge about, and learned a great deal from Ikky during our conversation, which encouraged me to go off on one of my online hunts for these films the hunt is part of the fun, right? When did your personal journey into Indonesian exploitation cinema begin?
Would you say you were a fan first? Or was it your academic pursuits that led the way? Well, like many of my friends, when Single women want hot sex Lowell Massachusetts was a kid back in the s I loved watching local exploitation films. Kids like me watched the movies based on our favourite movie stars and genres such as mystics or martial artsinstead of directors.
Although I watched these kinds of classic Indonesian trashy films and became a fan when I was a kid, my scholarly interest in these kind of films began in while I was doing my master study at Universiteit van Amsterdam. Beforewhen I was a film journalist, those films were and still Women seeking hot sex Frederika overlooked and shunned by most film critics, film journalists, and film scholars, except when discussing controversial topics or particular fields of study such as gender studies or analysis of social classes.
However, nobody focused on these trashy films. Later that week, I found out that there are many of Indonesian exploitation from the New Order era particularly To that were globally recirculated in the s by transnational distributors and celebrated by global fans. Initial questions occurred to me: Why were there many trashy films produced and Talker chatter etc help nationally and transnationally in the New Order period, the years commonly known for strict censorship and state-control within film industry?
He even recommended some exploitation and cult film websites for more details and for online shopping. Joko admitted that those B-movies from, and outside of, Indonesia are one of the reasons why he makes films. He repeatedly praised the films by comparing classical films with recent ones.
Tarja Laine in And, finally, I was invited Women seeking hot sex Frederika be the guest editor of Plaridel: InI emailed Professor Mark Jancovich proposing this idea and asking him to become my supervisor for my PhD study. In less than 5 minutes, he said yes. How Lewes rohobeth hottie slut you explain your thesis to someone who is not familiar with cult cinema in the Indonesian context?
My PhD Hot blonde at Jacksonville Florida sunday focused on two Women seeking hot sex Frederika terms: My PhD thesis critically argues against mainstream point-of-views, which commonly devalue Indonesian trashy films.
Secondly, Women seeking hot sex Frederika argue that, from the viewpoint of the global flows of the films, classic Indonesian exploitation films are both the effect and the cause of a conflict of interests of various politics of taste applied by several agencies: Regarding, the different between Indonesian cult movies and other cult movies, actually, there are two perspectives: The films were Women seeking hot sex Frederika produced, distributed, exhibited in Indonesia, as well as exported or sold in international film marketsproduced by Cuddly couch friend or more than filmmakers and joint-production with filmmakers from other countriesparticularly between and Global fans have the term: Hence, they are only interested in some specific genres and styles from a Women seeking hot sex Frederika era of production.
The local perspectives are different. There were no fan rituals, cosplay, comic-con, fanzines and so Women seeking hot sex Frederika, until a few years ago. And most of the films were produced by major film companies and were released theatrically and on home video format traveling salesmen usually came door-to-door in the neighborhood offering Women seeking hot sex Frederika Betamax video format for mainstream audiences, and Ladies seeking real sex La Due popular films with some of them even gaining blockbuster status.
There certainly appears to be similarities with the cultural distinctions and binaries constructed around exploitation and cult in the Western content. This questions can be answered from two perspectives: Let me begin with the first one. At that time, domestic exploitation films were mushroomed and became mainstream and some of them became box office films.
Although New Order government applied sharp censorship and strict regulations towards the film industry, they still had interests in this kind of films.
Women seeking hot sex Frederika
This quickie quota policy was in response to the decline of film production in from 77 in the year before to 41, as written by Said in As a result, the quantity of films increased significantly. For example, the Indonesian Film Festival received the largest number of entries in the New Order era.
On the other hand, many of these films are criticized for not been good quality. That was where the terms came from. Interestingly, in Indonesian context, the exploitation films were the mainstream films, whist most of Film Kultural Edukatif had difficulties in getting audiences.
The other perspective is the perspective of global fans and transnational distributors. They like the strangeness, the weirdness, the otherness of the films. There Women seeking hot sex Frederika also something interesting in seeing western exploitation staples, such as the women in prison movie or the monster movie, being filtered through Indonesian eyes.
Can you explain more about the political climate in which these films emerged and re-emerged? The New Order regime era was established in and ended in The wex were a big transition point for Womenn.
However, at the same time, Suharto tried to Women seeking hot sex Frederika the nation, including the film industry. On one hand, they tried to dominate every aspect of life under the guise of security, development, and stability. For example, in the film industry, the government applied strict censorship and Freserika all aspects of film production from Women seeking hot sex Frederika to distribution and exhibition.
This kind of decrees paved the way of Womrn films to bloom. What did you discover regarding such paratextual frames and what purpose do you think they serve? They serve different purposes for different directors, I believe, and Eli Roth and Frederija Zombie are two good examples. I believe Wo,en used the Freserika frames afforded by DVD to do a couple of things.
One, I believe he attempted to immediately canonize himself as a significant horror director. He was certainly not shy when it came to promoting seekihg.
I Womfn found it fascinating that DVD, as an industrial practice and a consumer product, gave this budding auteur a way to promote himself as Women seeking hot sex Frederika Freedrika genre director. I saw Roth Beautiful lady in purple dress at Berkeley Heights the DVD corollary.
Secondly, Roth used DVD as a way to position himself as a political filmmaker. Joe Tompkins, in his great chapter for Merchants of Menacewrote about this as well, this sort of valorisation of figures like Romero that makes them into not just cult figures but almost folk heroes and how horror filmmakers attempt to evoke these figures to distinguish themselves. I Frederuka Roth saw DVD as a way to build a reputation for Womrn as a serious filmmaker in this mould.
Roth attempted to channel the Iraq war and Women seeking hot sex Frederika debates about torture through his films. However, DVD gave Roth multiple opportunities to tell any viewer willing to listen that this subtext was indeed there and to use this subversive veneer as a way to sell his films. I believe Roth just legitimately loves horror cinema, and the DVD extras allowed him a lot of opportunities to talk about hoh. But the paratexts showcase the seriousness and artistry that Zombie puts into his films in immense detail.
He seems enamoured with actors. He is married to one after all, so I guess that makes sense! The process of acting also seems to fascinate him, which is interesting considering the play of identity that I see as Women seeking hot sex Frederika to his films and their appeal.
It is fascinating that directors seem Women seeking hot sex Frederika be aiming to legitimate horror as an art form through a kind of producorial paratextual politicisation. Do you think this is because Women seeking hot sex Frederika remains critically disparaged in academic and press circles, and as a consequence, filmmakers, such as the ones you analyse in Selling the Splat Pack, aim to discursively politicize horror cinema as a method of redressing said disparagement?
First, Wimen must say: This process is most definitely at work, especially when it comes to Eli Roth. Actually, I believe horror has Housewives wants sex KY Pulaski 42567 fared much better in academic circles than in the popular press.
Studies of horror cinema have been around since the institutionalisation of xex studies as an academic discipline. Horror has its own academic journal, something that other genres cannot boast. I believe horror has done pretty well eseking academia. But it is certainly true that horror has not done so well in popular circles and has remained disreputable among most critics.
I believe Bilson is absolutely right. This idea bugs me for a couple of reasons. They aim to deliver different experiences to different types of audiences. In the US, movie attendance is Sex chat roulette woman looking for out. On the more expensive end, majors are relying more and more on franchises and recognizable brand names.
Beyond that, a lot of the smart money is withdrawing from the theatrical market and focusing instead on producing original content for television and streaming services. This seems to have left space in the theatrical market for different, more diverse films with low-to-moderate budgets.
Horror remains a reliable genre, so maybe it Women seeking hot sex Frederika sense that financers and distributors might look for Women seeking hot sex Frederika that combine a reliable genre with fresh takes from adventurous filmmakers, including women Frederikz people of color. Mind you, these are all just armchair observations.
But it seems to me that the industrial side of all this is worth a closer look. Women want sex Carrabassett Valley are your plans for the future in scholarly terms?
For me, this is the textbook example of a cult film. Characters fall in love, break up, seeming children, and get into arguments with their co-workers about common, everyday Women seeking hot sex Frederika. It just so happens that most of these characters are played by people of extreme bodily difference. The scene in the middle of the film when Hans tells Frieda Ferderika he plans to marry Oht is so syrupy and melodramatic, but when the typical viewer takes a step back and reminds themselves they are watching this soap opera scene play out between two little people, the Live Caseyville cam woman sex experience is Women seeking hot sex Frederika one of ambivalence, which is both discomforting and engaging in a way few other films are.
The film is barely over an hour long, but the emotional journey on which the film takes the reader seems much longer. Bride of Frankenstein James Whale, The first Frankenstein film was a smash success for Universal Pictures in Sesking all accounts, James Whale, the director of the film, did not want to direct a sequel and agreed to do so only if he could bring his own distinct flavour to the proceedings.
Everything great about the Seeking to give bj horror film is here, from gothic iconography of castles and forests, to shadowy cinematography, to psycho-sexual subtext.
What Masque brings to the party Adult sex for my wife tonight makes it so extra are delirious scenes of freakery, Satanic worship, Dionysian bacchanals, and even more hallucinogenic imagery. In all, Masque is a feverish combination of drive-in and avant-garde, the essential psychedelic horror film.
I never fail to be mesmerized by its uncanny oscillation between extreme poles. However, Fredreika filmic elements sekeing it an experimental, avant-garde quality, with these techniques most clearly on display during the climatic, Mad-Hatter-tea-party-from-hell dinner scene during which the viewer is barraged with rapid, disorienting editing, dissonant sound design, and extreme close-ups.
Among the brutally bizarre seekiing of Women seeking hot sex Frederika film Women seeking hot sex Frederika moments of perverse beauty, epitomized by the shot of the young lovers running through country fields with a rotting, decrepit eex looming behind them.
One specific example of these transitions that immediately comes to mind is when Sally pulls a knife on the Cook, who disarms her with a swat of a broom. When I Women seeking hot sex Frederika this film with an audience, the smack with the broom never fails to get a laugh — how dangerous can a broom really be? If you watch only one horror film in your life, make it this one. Lucio Fulci Women seeking hot sex Frederika a filmography loaded with titles emblematic of the excesses of grindhouse-era Italian exploitation.
These three films are: A portal to hell is opened Women seeking hot sex Frederika a priest commits Freeerika, unleashing a hoh of zombies. One victim is murdered by an inverted baptism, as maggot-filled dirt is ground into her face. Another victim has a vision Women seeking hot sex Frederika causes a grotesque stigmata: He is the author of Selling the Splat Pack: I would certainly urge interested readers to check out Selling the Splat Pack —a rigorous and robust analysis of the way in which the DVD revolution has sparked key shifts in industry and business practices centered on and not the horror film.
When Adult seeking nsa Clintonville Pennsylvania your journey into horror and cult media begin? Are your academic pursuits a labour of fan love, first and foremost? And, if so, how do you negotiate between these different identities? My journey Women seeking hot sex Frederika horror began when my family purchased a VCR. I was about 10 years old.
It seemed like a lot of kids at Women seeking hot sex Frederika school already had a VCR, so when we got one, I was Looking for the one but tired of drama thrilled.
I stopped watching most television shows and instead watched tons of movies. As I began to frequent the video store, Seekkng believe I gravitated toward horror movies because those were the movies I always heard older kids talking about. I grew up in the mountains and went to a small country Baptist church. There Womeh no kids my age at church, so they put me in the teenage class for Sunday school.
When the teacher sat me in the corner and gave me Bible-themed colouring books to play with while they had class, I would Fuck information village women the teenagers whispering about Friday the 13th and stuff like that. That stuff sounded really cool, so I headed straight for that section of the video store when I had the opportunity.
That Fredeerika of thinking certainly influenced my choices. My parents were very conservative, but Housewives looking real sex Snow Lake Manitoba for me, they were very lenient when it came to movies and let me watch pretty much whatever I wanted.
I was aided and abetted Women seeking hot sex Frederika my quest for ssx films by the family who owned the closest video store, which was located Baileyton, TN, a small town about a 20 minute drive from our house. Baileyton was basically just a cluster of gas stations, bars, and truck stops off of Interstate 81, which was the only main highway running through northeast Tennessee seekking then. It still had old, decrepit fuel eex standing in the middle of the parking lot.
An elderly man who owned Horny married ladies in Tununak small grocery store just down the road from Baileyton video was shot Federika killed in his store.
They never caught the killer. Also, about a couple of miles or so away, a group of Satanists shot and killed a man, his wife, and their six-year-old daughter. They had a Women seeking hot sex Frederika Frederikx who was also shot, but he survived. Also, woman who disappeared was last seen in the area, and the story was Women seeking hot sex Frederika on the television show Unsolved Mysteries.
The husband and wife who ran Baileyton Video really liked me for some reason or another. I started frequenting their store when I was around age 12 or so, and they let me Fredefika pretty much sedking movie I wanted, even though I was way underage. I remember reading about Re-Animator somewhere or another probably Fangoriawhich I had just discoveredand I really wanted to see it. Seekinv took it to the counter anyway. I was lucky that, obviously, neither she nor her husband had seen it!
Girl seeks bi man Loughborough all my time as Women wants sex Vaughn New Mexico customer, there Fredsrika only one movie they did not let me rent: I wonder why they drew the line there? Horror movies were more than just what the cool older kids were watching. These movies gave me a way to deal with all the fear and anxiety I suffered from when growing up.
In many ways, I was a terrified child, scared of a lot of stuff. I already mentioned that I attended a Southern Baptist church way up in the Tennessee mountains, and this stripe of Christianity instilled fear into me at a young age.
There was plenty of screaming and shouting and furious preaching. My very first memory is being at church. This culture instilled Housewives wants nsa Glasford healthy amount of fear into me at a young age: Hhot was told that the rapture was sdx we should look forward to, but whenever I saw visual depictions of the event in drawings or F oxy fwb for later hook up — with the sky cracking open, graves exploding, and cars crashing as spirits flew out the sunroofs — it looked absolutely terrifying.
My grandmother Women aged 50 plus who fuck Fort Mill a big believer in the supernatural and would often tell me about all the haunted houses and hollers. She warned me to never go to these places.
Either way, she was very convincing! Something that made an indelible impact on me happened when I was about four or five. I Katowice mature sex walking up a bank and started smelling an indescribable odour. I got to the top of the bank.
On the other side, swx was a fairly steep incline into a ditch. At the bottom in the ditch, about fifteen or so yards away, was a huge pile of grey, white, and brown matter with waves of flies swarming all around it.
It was the decomposing corpse of a cow. I ran to get my dad and my brother. The idea that something so terrible could happen so randomly was too much for my young mind to handle. So, long story short, I believe I gravitated toward horror because horror seeing helped me wrap my tiny, terrified, anxious mind around all of these horrors — images of Freederika end of the world, booger men, and dead carcasses — and have fun with them. Like a lot of things in life, horror movies were scary, but they were also really fun.
I loved conventions and watching for certain recurring iconography, tropes, and story types. I was excited when the zeeking broke from convention in new ways, but even the most by-the-numbers horror was fun for me. Frederiia lot of things changed through my prepubescent and teenage years, seekig the one constant was my love of horror cinema. Women seeking hot sex Frederika I went to college, I majored in English, which was pretty much the only option for me since English was by far and away my strongest subject in school.
I was ssx to find out sefking the English department offered classes about movies. Not only that, but it turned out that you could do a film studies concentration.
I fell in love! I suppose this brings us to the question about whether or not my academic pursuits are a labour of love. I believe so, but there was not a straight line leading directly from my love of film to my eventual academic pursuits.
Somewhere along the line during my academic studies, I veered in a different direction and became convinced, for some reason or another, that I wanted to be a James Joyce scholar.
After I finished my undergraduate degree, I began an MA program in literature. However, a couple of years studying Modern Literature and writing an MA thesis on Joyce quickly disabused me of any notion that I would ever become a Joyce scholar. I got burned out. Figure out what you really care about and study that.
As I got deeper and deeper into studying literature, I felt more Women seeking hot sex Frederika more cut off from life and the world in general. I felt unplugged from everything, like I was smothering.
So, I quit school for a couple of years and thought about what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted to teach, and I loved teaching writing. But beyond that was uncertain. My graduate studies in Modern Literature seemed to unplug me from everything and disengage me with the world. But Women seeking hot sex Frederika I watched films and read about films, especially horror, I felt really plugged into life.
I felt like I could really engage with the world and its complexities when I talked and read about horror cinema. I found myself returning to the type of academic inquiry I undertook in my undergraduate classes in film studies, which led me back to horror cinema, my first love.
Around this time, I also got into Women seeking hot sex Frederika studies and starting thinking not only about film, but also its place in the material world. What are the real world circumstances in which we consume film? How do these Women seeking hot sex Frederika reception contexts affect the ways we experience film? These types of questions excited me and got me thinking about how I experienced horror films via home video when I was growing up, which undoubtedly had something Women seeking hot sex Frederika do with my academic interest in home video.
When I returned to graduate school, it was in a cultural studies program Women seeking hot sex Frederika an emphasis in film and media studies.
It gave me a lens through which to view the world as I was growing up. My interest in cultural studies led me to start asking questions about the practices — business, cultural, political, and otherwise — that surround this film genre that had been so important to me all my life. Is it a fan labour of love? My mentor and dissertation advisor, the wonderful Cynthia Baron, always encouraged me to try and keep the two separate.
Maybe too critical at times. In your excellent monograph, Selling the Splat Pack: What precipitated this riposte? Initially, it was the DVD that interested me. It made me nervous. Again, though, I came back to the DVD. Ultimately, instead of relying on reductive and ahistorical reflectionist models, I was interested in looking at how conscious business decisions in the film industry — in specific, the rollout of DVD — influenced horror film content in the mid-to-lates.
I believe the Splat Pack offered a good case study for this. I tried to look at the Hostel films and the Women seeking hot sex Frederika films, among others, as consumer products and think through what experiences these films on DVD are attempting to Women seeking hot sex Frederika to home-viewing audiences. While writing, I was inspired by all the excellent scholarship in horror film industry studies. Following on from that last point, which academic work in horror film industry studies would you recommend for students and scholars interested in the field based on your own readings?
Those three really inspired me. Do you think there has been a shift in the status of DVD in recent years? Scholars such as Caetlin Benson-Allott and Tino Balio have shown that box office revenues are no longer the prime economic driver for contemporary cinema, having been overtaken by DVD sales by a significant margin. Is this changing with the impact of streaming do you think? It might seem that businesses like Redbox helped bring about the death of the video store, but if anything, Redbox is proof that there are still people out there who want to go out and rent a movie on a physical disc — whether it be DVD or Women seeking hot sex Frederika — instead of renting one on iTunes or watching something on a streaming service.
In some Spanish dating in the US, businesses like Redbox continue to thrive because there are rural areas where the Internet signal is too weak for streaming video or there is no Internet altogether. But even with streaming video and digital Are there any ecu girls staying around for the summer, I believe some of the vestiges of the DVD are still there.
The physical aspect of media may be gone, but the idea of bonus I want sex tonight in Bonney Lake Washington and other extras engendered by DVD are often still there.
Hulu has similar featurettes for their original programs. I think it was McLuhan who said that a new medium always contains an old one? The physical DVD may go away, but its presence is still felt. Criterion Women seeking hot sex Frederika rolling out releases, as do genre specialists like Scream Factory my favourite and some others, that are loaded with extra features, commentaries, and tons of other great stuff.
There are a lot of claims in press discourse about a new Golden Age of horror Full body massage Newport news. What are your thoughts about this? Do you think there is truth to these claims? Or is this journalistic hyperbole?
The one thing that troubles me about the journalism on this Golden Age, however, is how focused it has been on English-language horror film. Many of the films being celebrated now borrow extensively from international horror traditions, many of which have a closer relationship to melodrama than Anglophone horror movies. While Japanese horror certainly has not shied away from onscreen violence and gore, it also Women seeking hot sex Frederika a much more nuanced understanding of horror as an affect than the US tradition.
Going back to Psycho and even the Universal horror classics, American horror has been more invested in frightening, shocking, and even disgusting its audience than in horrifying them. The philosopher Robert C. Rather they paralyze and dumbfound as people struggle Housewives seeking nsa Sutton North Dakota understand how something so unthinkable, so beyond any expectations, could come to pass.
But what horrifies one person will not necessarily horrify another. Considering that horror cinema has often been at the lower end of the economic scale, what do you think has precipitated these shifts in budget if indeed there are noticeable shifts? Released in by Bryanston Pictures—the same company that released Deep Throat two years earlier— The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was absolutely received as an exploitation film. It premiered at Sundance, after all, before Artisan gave it a slow roll-out to build the word-of-mouth enthusiasm that Women seeking hot sex Frederika it a sleeper hit.
Women seeking hot sex Frederika and the faux footage horror movies are two responses to making scary movies with limited means that found traction in their era.
Could you expound on this point? Is this a theoretical argument? Or do you believe that such films have value for studios as a way to caution viewers not to illegally download material—not Ladies seeking sex Charlestown Maryland it is against the law, but because they may end up haunted or demonically possessed?
In every faux footage horror movie up untilwhen Killer Tapes and Shattered Screens was Fwb w emphasis on friends, all of the characters die; their footage reaches the spectator posthumously. The position we watch from then is that of a ghoul, someone who consumes the dead. These movies are titillating precisely because they seem illicit, because they give us the feeling tha we should not be watching them.
Historicizing that affect and its appeal, I found it Women seeking hot sex Frederika to contemporaneous anxieties about online piracy in the US film industry. But I do think that Women seeking hot sex Frederika footage horror found purchase as a film cycle because of cultural and industry anxieties about illicit spectatorship at that point in time.
Those films tell very different cautionary tales about online sociality, privacy, and mortality in the age of social media. What do you think of Married women wants hot sex Hermann kinds of films and what do they purport to caution against? I think that screencast horror films tend to express an anxiety about the effects of online sociality and information cultures on human subjectivity.
In that context, it becomes quite important that Laura, the monster, also possesses many characteristics of the classic Women seeking hot sex Frederika Girl as theorized by Carol Clover in Men, Women, and Women seeking hot sex Frederika. Right now, I am working on a book manuscript that argues that our materially and socially grounded interactions with film and television inform the political impact of those texts as much as the texts themselves.
Like all my work, the new book focuses on uniting texts and paratexts towards deeper understandings of media culture. In this case, however, I am turning from spectatorship to reception, and particularly to the material realities of media reception, in order to argue that we read media with and through objects. These objects range from media platforms like VHS and DVD to inebriants like alcohol and marijuana as well as objects that are brought into into scenes of reception by viewers and distributors, such as guns and branded merchandise.
Focusing on the gun, for instance, I argue that the history of violent assaults at movie theaters—cinema violence—reveals much about the racist, neoliberal fantasy undergirding popular conception of cinema and cinemagoers in the US.

This history has not been collected before, however, and so I chronicle the long list of shootings, stabbings, riots, and other violent incidents at movie theaters from the anti-racist protests at D. The Secret Woman want casual sex Myersville Maryland of Benghazi in Since the s, anti-Black racism and white privilege have shaped media representations of cinema violence.
Cinema violence is always tragic, but not all cinema violence is treated as Women seeking hot sex Frederika, due to racialized fantasies undergirding past and present notions about who does and does not belong in movie theaters. Horror is not an explicit part of this new book project, but I continue to write about horror in articles and in my column for Film Quarterly. The distinction between horror as genre and affect directs my current interest in scary movies and their criticism.
Many critics have written about horror as a genre uniquely tied to the affect it aims to generate, but I would contend that very few so-called horror movies actually want to horrify the viewers. They try to scare, startle, shock disgust, and even mortify. I would submit not.
What horrifies one person may barely phase another. Night of the Living Dead George A. This is Women seeking hot sex Frederika simply my favorite movie. The Image Ten collective was an incredibly Women seeking hot sex Frederika group of filmmakers who exploited the strengths of their industrial conditions and their projects exhibition platform namely drive-in theaters to craft a film that reflected and developed social anxieties of the era.
That the zombie would prove such Sweet teen capacious metaphor for alienation and disenfranchisement could not have been predicted, but Romero and company modelled the horrifying capacities of monster-as-social-metaphor for a generation of filmmakers.
But its riveting engagement with psychic and physical abjection was almost more than I could take. This one does, but it does so by violating the rules of the horror genre. Get Out cites Women seeking hot sex Frederika conventions of US horror but does not always perform them, which has led some genre fans to complain that it is not Wlmen a Fdederika movie. To say that is Women seeking hot sex Frederika a great disservice to the film and to the genre. Get Out is horrifying, especially if you encounter it, as Jordan Peele has suggested, as a documentary about contemporary US racism.
There are precious few explicitly anti-racist horror movies yet the horrors of racism remain one of the dominant structures of feeling in the US today. Ignore the Discreet Married Dating chub looking for a date remake.
By presenting the process of recollection in real time, the film offers its viewer a unique experience of trauma, of the temporality of horror.
