Blog Bunny is Connie Elstun Comedy Magician and Entertaining Educator from Denver Colorado!
Give thanks for history from Denver Colorado Magician and Educator, Connie Elstun. If you follow me, you know how much I love history, especially, truthful American History. This week most of America will be cooking up the dead bodies of near 155 million turkeys who were not pardoned. Not for me though, I eat tofurkey. Anyway, I came across this story of the first Pilgrim executed and I thought how appropriate for this Thanksgiving 2018 week.
Here is the story of John Billington, the first Pilgrim executed.
Pagans who follow Norse traditions see life as an ever-flowing circle. Contemplating this darker aspect
of the Goddess teaches us that as well as everything Nature moves in circles, we
as individuals also must do it, accepting death as a passage into another state,
as valid and as much part of our lives as our own birth.
The Crone can be associated with the Waning Moon, and the colours black,
deep blue and the deepest purple.
There is a three way tie for films that won the most Academy Awards. As of 2018 the record stands at 11.
Director/Screenwriter James Cameron wrote and Directed one and it amazed me. He took
a story out of the history books that we all knew the ending of and included not

seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard
the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic. This film won 11 Academy
The question from some of my film study Students is, should we watch the Godfather trilogy customized for television with less violence and language and shown in chronological order or watch the films as they were shown to audiences upon their release?
Master Director Francis Ford Coppola is able to maintain
an amazing balance of powerful character driven stories written by Mario Puzo,
peppered with the ruthless violence we expect from a gangster film in this
multi-generational saga of the rise and fall of the Corleone crime family.
Film Study Fight Club 1996
Actors bringing Characters to life
In 1996 a new author, Chuck Palahniuk, wrote a quirky
novel called Fight Club. In 1999 Fight Club was made into a quirky flick. And
within a couple years it became a Cult Classic. Not everyone likes this film,
but I do. Actor Brad Pitt has proved himself over and over to be first class
in his craft. From the first time I saw him walk away in “Thelma and Louise” to
his virtuous role as Louis de Pointe du Lac in “Interview with a Vampire” I knew
he was going to be iconic.
