Film in Staten Island basement sets off a real furor

Rare movie footage of Adolf Hitler hanging out with his buddies has been discovered in a Staten Island basement - and investigators are probing why the film was made.A reel of film plucked from the wartime rubble of a German opera house shows Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, Hermann Goering and Heinrich Himmler enjoying a Richard Wagner music festival before the start of World War II.

The film, sent home by U.S. serviceman Walter Ladziak, was found 10 years ago after Ladziak's brother-in-law, who received the package, died.

Horrible Title Pun aside, what a bizarre piece of news.

Checking In

Yesterday's signing was a blast, and was well worth the trip down to Manhattan Beach (especially because Tony drove me.) We met a lot of fans, and sold a slew of books, and were then thoroughly entertained by Vaudeville, the band not the defunct theatercraft. I don't have their website anywhere, but if they read this, please send over a link, and I'll happily post it. Updated, I added their Myspace as a link up there. In other news, I've been having some interesting health problems of late that have been greatly limiting my work time. Luckily they seem to be resolving themselves somewhat, and I managed to get some writing done today.

And, of course, the passing of Kurt Vonnegut. Vonnegut was one of the guys I remember reading in like fifth or sixth grade and getting scolded by my teachers. "That's not for you," they'd say, and I'd just smile and keep reading. He managed to write sci-fi that wasn't, comedy that was, drama that had, and adventure that was full of the stuff. There was nobody better who did what he did. Although, to be fair, there was just plain nobody who did what he did.

And the guy has by far the best author cameo ever in Back to School.

So, thank you, Kurt for your inspiration and dedication. You'll be missed.

Say that in a Sean Connery accent.

Movie & TV News @ IMDb.com - WENN: "Scottish superstar and The Untouchables Academy Award winner Sean Connery is convalescing after undergoing surgery to remove a tumor from his kidney. The 75-year-old From Russia With Love actor underwent the operation in January in a New York City hospital, and is now back home in the Bahamas with his wife Micheline. He says, 'I was opened in five places, including a tube up my d**k.' Brother Neil says, 'As far as I'm led to believe the tumour was benign. He seems to be quite upbeat about it.'" Trust me, when I had my kidney and bladder problems, the last thing I was was upbeat about it.  Sean Connery has bested me again.
