WTF?! THIS EXACT MOMENT 105 YEARS AGO . . . APRIL 14, 1912

 

The R.M.S. Titanic hits an iceberg and the 20th Century will never be the same.

 

Imagine how different 1997 would have been without this megalith of a movie hitting the screens?We might not even have the same Kate or Leo we have today?! Winter of 1997/98 wouldn’t have been consumed by 12 theatre viewings of “TITANIC”!!!

We shudder to think . . .

+TITANIC 4 LIFE +

On a serious note; I’m not sure what it is about this majestic ship that has always captured my imagination. I’m guessing its a mixture of the Edwardian elegance, decadence, and grandeur of the ship – the microcosm of society contained within it – and the hubris of the upper echelon whose powers control the world to this day, and the tragedy that ensued as a result.

There are many many many fascinating details regarding this ship, but perhaps the most stimulating aspect of the Titanic’s untimely fate is that it was predicted 14 years earlier by a pulp novella entitled The Wreck of the Titan: Or, Futility which I was lucky to read before the film had even been in production.

Talk about psychic premonitions; author Morgan Robertson (also the self proclaimed inventor of the periscope) chillingly predicts much of the Titanic’s destiny with his fictional telling of an enormous “unsinkable” triple screw British luxury ocean liner named the S.S. TITAN  which meets its untimely demise on a cold April night in the North Atlantic after it hits an iceberg losing almost everyone on board due to a lack of lifeboats.

CRAZY, RIGHT?! This is 14 years before the infamous disaster! Designs for Titanic‘s sister ship didn’t even go into production until 1908. How was it that Morgan Robertson could right a tale so shockingly similar to the Titanic’s actual events. Was he psychic? Was it planned?

TIME TRAVEL???

The whole thing is absolutely incredible, and definitely worth looking more into.

{STYLE WISE} CARRIE (1976) VS. CARRIE (2013)

 Graduations have commenced, the lockers are empty, and uniforms have been put on the top shelf, but this doesn’t stop us from being pumped for this year’s style conscious remake of “Carrie” starring stylish ingenue Chloe Grace Moretz, and mystic maven Julianne Moore, as Carrie’s fanatical mother. 

“These Are Godless Times, Mrs. Snell”

-Margaret White, “Carrie” by Stephen King.

The film is set to release in October, but until now we can just quench on the latest trailer, and take a look back at what made “Carrie” great so many years back (almost 30!).

Surely no one can outdo Sissy Spacek’s alien beauty and frail feminine qualities, but undeniably Ms. Grace Moretz will bring a freshness to the part that she’s consistently showcased in her last several films. This is her big BIG break. Much as it was Spacek’s those many years ago. . .

{ “CARRIE” (1976) VS. “CARRIE” (2013) }

High school seems like a world away now, but we can’t help but feel a certain sense of nostalgia for those long lost days roaming the hallways, hanging out in the labyrinths of the school auditorium, or ditching gym. “Carrie” does right to set its horrors amongst the most sacred rite of teenage life, {Prom Night}.

I remember my own, decked out in vintage duds; a little gang of mischief-makers danced the night away in the cavern of some out-of-the-way banquet hall in middle-of-nowhere southern Ontario. Waiting for the bus at midnight across from an empty field was but one of the many highlights that mark {Prom Night} as truly a night to remember. Not unlike the kids in “Carrie” . . .

And no better way to get yourself prepped for the film directed by Kimberly Peirce, whose 1999 film “Boys Don’t Cry” had Hilary Swank walking away with an Academy Award for Best Actress (as well as a Best Supporting Actress nod to fashion darling, Chloe Sevigny).

Sounds like a sure-bet to me!

Don’t get this secret diva mad, because once you do,

there’s no holding back those flood gates.

Until next time,

1980’s French Psychic Predicts 9/11, Obama Presidency, & 2012 Alien Encounters!

capturedcran20120113133We stumbled onto this video full of revelations this morning.

We were astonished by the blatant similarities that mark our present, that this French psychic, who’s name is unclear  (either Albert Florintie or Sean Mciver),  told of back in 1980. With talking of ‘Change’ and clear references to  Chernobyl, we knew we found something for our readers to Eye.

Full of eerie warnings of nuclear powered disasters in the coming decades, and warnings of us crippled by our need for fossil fuels, we were a bit disturbed by the accuracies we are warned of in our impending future including talk of religious wars, and promises of an attack on American soil.

The predictions weren’t only doom and gloom: visions of electric cars on the way, change in America, even a revolution by the People. The most interesting of all has to be the vision of a “black man” becoming President of the most powerful country in the World.

Hoax or not, we are intrigued.  The most alarming revelation of the future would have to be the impending encounter we will face with ‘People from another Galaxy”.  Perhaps this will be a lesson to man kind, and we will see the flaws in our ways and become stronger than ever.

Or, as this French Psychic seems to think . . . impending doom of mankind will surely come our way in 2012.
