Jan Švankmajer, Filmmaker

Jan Švankmajer is a Czech filmmaker and artist whose work spans several media. He is a self-labeled surrealist known for his animations and features. Švankmajer was born September 4th, 1934 in Prague from a German Bohemian descent. An early influence on his later artistic development was a puppet theatre he was given for Christmas as a child. He studied at the College of Applied Arts in Prague and later in the Department of Puppetry at the Prague Academy of Performing Arts. He then began working for Prague’s Semafor Theatre where he founded the Theatre of Masks. He then moved on to the Laterna Magika multimedia theatre, where he renewed his association with Radok. This theatrical experience is reflected in Švankmajer’s first film The Last Trick, which was released in 1964.

John R. Brinkley, Goat Testicle Doctor

Has your male organ been feeling sluggish as of late? Perhaps you need some implanted goat testicles. I’m sure back in the day “Doctor” John R. Brinkley could pencil you in for the procedure. Check out his story below. John Romulus Brinkley (later John Richard Brinkley; July 8, 1885 – May 26, 1942) was a controversial American who fraudulently claimed to be a medical doctor (he had no legitimate medical education and bought his medical degree from a “diploma mill”) who became known as the “goat-gland doctor” after he achieved national fame, international notoriety and great wealth through the xenotransplantation of goat testicles into humans. – Source: Wikipedia Briefing Documentary

Priest Trapped In Bondage Gear Calls 911 – Listen

It has been awhile since I’ve updated with any good catholic headlines. This particular incident is hilarious considering this took place on the street I grew up on. Def a highlight in today’s news. LOL It’s not clear how he ended up in the way he did, but Father Tom Donovan, the Priest of St. Aloysius church on Springfield’s (Illinois) north end has been granted a leave of absence after he called 911 from the rectory and told a dispatcher that he needed help getting out of a pair of…handcuffs. “You’re stuck in a pair of handcuffs?” the dispatcher asks rather surprised. In a muffled voice and with words sounding as if he has his mouth full, the Father says, “I was playing” (or praying) “with them and need help before this ecomes a edical e-ergency” he says purposely blanking when asked his name “and I need help getting out”. It gets worse. Sources say…

The Junk Drawer Fall Out

Yesterday I awoke to a horrific scene that happened in my kitchen!! Michael – For whatever ungodly reason – decided to rearrange all of the kitchen cabinets and drawers. In the process he defiled my designated “junk drawer”!!! The drawer that is used every single day of life in this house. Gone. I believe it was that very moment that I experienced my 1st empathetic feeling of how the people on Hoarders must have felt. Let me tell you one very pertinent thing: NEVER mess with a woman’s junk drawer, that’s like someone messing with your toolbox!!! In the time of my grieving my lovely BFF Candy posted a supportive message, “May you always have a junk drawer.” – along with an inspiring photo: So inspiring that Mr. Matt Paxton, Extreme Cleaning Specialist of the show Hoarders had to comment. lol So for those of you who were following the “Junk Drawer Drama” yesterday I…
