Man Finds Rare Superman Comics Inside Wall

Posted by DarlingPD Views: 4,328



David Gonzalez recently unearthed a copy of Superman #4 from the spring of 1940, ComicConnect.com COO Vincent Zurzolo told The Huffington Post on Friday. The comic could be worth between $500 and $5,000, Zurzolo estimates.

"It's amazing to me that he's still finding stuff," said Zurzolo, who has been in touch with Gonzalez since ComicConnect hosted the bidding for the first find.

Gonzalez previously told ABC News that he had come upon another antique issuethat featured Superman fighting dinosaurs, but he had yet to identify it. Zurzolo explained there was a delay because Gonzalez took some time to locate the cover.

The front of Superman #4 shows Superman holding up collapsing columns with Lex Luthor in the foreground. In the story, Superman battles a pterodactyl reproduced in Luthor's lab, according to Comic Book Religion.

Secret Radiation Weapon Offered to KKK

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 3,622

A federal complaint unsealed Wednesday in Albany said the vehicle-mounted radiation gear was intended to be remotely controlled and capable of aiming a high-energy lethal beam of radioactivity at human targets. The concept was that victims would mysteriously die from radiation poisoning within days.

The FBI on Tuesday arrested Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Providence, Saratoga County, and Eric J. Feight, 54, of Stockport, who are accused of developing "a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford's enemies," according to an FBI agent's sworn complaint.

Crawford, who was suspended from his job at GE in Schenectady this week, and Feight, who previously worked for an electronics company near Hudson, are acquaintances who over the past year had devised a plan to build and sell the weapon to a terrorist organization, according to the FBI. Crawford's role was to design and build the radiation device and its power supply, the complaint states.

Feight's role was to design and build the electronic triggering device that could be used to activate the weapon from a safe distance, the complaint states.

The men, both married, were charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists for use of a weapon of mass destruction. They face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

They never actually obtained a radiation source and the device was not fully constructed, officials said.

Crawford was arrested Tuesday at an out-of-business auto body shop in Rensselaer County where he went to assemble and test the device, authorities said.

THE KKK'S 
RADIATION WEAPON? 
A plot to design a radiation weapon that could fit in a small van and be used to silently kill humans was unraveled by an FBI task force that charged two men — a General Electric Co. industrial mechanic from Saratoga County and a computer software expert from Columbia County -— with conspiring to sell the weapon to Jewish groups or a southern branch of the Ku Klux Klan.

"a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford's enemies," 

During the past year, the complaint indicates Crawford communicated and met regularly with an undercover FBI employee posing as a supplier of radiation equipment, such as X-ray tubes used in medical devices or construction test gear. Early-on, the undercover FBI employee sent an email to Crawford with pictures of different X-ray systems he could arrange to supply.

The FBI's investigation began in April 2012 when, the complaint says, Crawford went to a Capital Region synagogue and "asked to speak with a person who might be willing to help him with a type of technology that could be used by Israel to defeat its enemies, specifically, by killing Israel's enemies while they slept."

Later that day, Crawford telephoned an Albany Jewish organization, using his cell phone, and made a similar offer, the complaint states. An FBI agent's affidavit indicates that someone at the unidentified synagogue contacted police, who relayed the information to the FBI. At that point the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force in Albany launched an investigation and began monitoring Crawford.

Rabbi Matthew Cutler of Congregation Gates of Heaven in Schenectady on Wednesday recounted that a "strange man" came to his synagogue in April 2012 and began discussing a device he developed that would protect the Jewish people, though he did not specify what it was. Cutler said that when he and colleagues told the man they were not interested, he asked for suggestions on what he could do with his creation and employees told him to contact theJewish Federation of Northeastern New York.

Crawford, 49, of Galway, is accused in a federal complaint of developing ?a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford?s enemies,? states the complaint attributed to an FBI agent. Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, is identified as a co-conspirator and listed in the complaint as Crawford?s acquaintance. (Lori Van Buren/Times Union)

Works by Pinkney Herbert

Posted by ParisCollective Views: 3,490


Herbert: Music and color can be a direct line to one’s feelings and thoughts. I attempt to visualize sounds with the energy I feel from music.”

Fredric Koeppel of the Memphis Commercial Appeal expounds on the maturation of Herbert’s long career in the following statement: “Herbert, long a creative presence and an influential teacher in Memphis, has defined his commitment to abstraction in several decades’ worth of paintings and drawings that teem with energy so compelling that the whirling, tornado-like vortexes that comprise his central motif seem to suck viewers into their maelstroms – or blow them out of the gallery…. Now (in the drawings) there’s a quality that could almost be called contemplative.”

PINKNEY HERBERT 
Music and color are the driving forces behind artist Pinkney Herbert’s abstract works on paper. His improvised bursts of color, line and form visually imitate the “broken time-progressions” musicians create when a beat is not established. Using pastel on white paper, Herbert composes the work with an urgent and expressive energy. Like in a musical composition, pauses are often as important as the notes, and Herbert activates his work with plenty of white space.

“I was always very grateful I was never 'hot,' ... In the entire length of my career, I haven't been the hottest, the No. 1, the most adored. I've always been somewhere down from the top, so I've never had to suffer being knocked off the top.”

No more weddings.

Posted by indiadebeaufort Views: 3,754
Everything begins with an idea.  It might not be the brightest, it might not be groundbreaking, and you are most likely not the first to think of it, but it might be something worth working for. It might be something you are meant to see through. It might just BE something.

I have an idea. I have this idea that I might be really good at editing. In my experience doing something you love, usually makes you pretty good at it. Invested. Passionate. So I decided I would open up shop. I am going to find pieces from all over, bring those pieces to one place, and make them accessible to like minded people. Pieces I chose. Handpicked. Love.

My problem is I am a YES person. YES I will show at NYFW. YES I will give the MC Hammer pants a try. YES I will bake your wedding cake (almost always regret that one). And so here I am, YES I really think I can do this. After all how hard can it be? I'm not reinventing the wheel. Buy some old stuff, mark it up, flog it at the local flea market. Have a lovely time.

Turns out it's a teensy bit more complicated than that. I can't speak for the rest of the world, but here's how it goes in Los Angeles...

First you'll need a Sellers Permit (thats an hour or so online). You need to register your ficticious business name (thats a trip to the court house, get prepared to wait). Next you post an ad in your local paper (It's an old school law that makes your business legit, and I kinda love that it's never been changed). Some merchandise requires a police permit. I require two police permits and one state. That involves an orientation at the police department and a whole load of forms. You gotta get your business licence (City Hall for that one). You need to open up a bank account. You're going to need a federal tax ID and you have to handle your income tax etc. And thats not even half of it. Every time I visit a new office, I find out I need a new permit / license / form. There are City laws, County laws, State laws and Federal laws. It's a lot to follow, and it's not like you're handed a list. You're essentially covering your arse blind. And I am a company of one. Add an employee to that payroll and it's a whole other can of worms.

Is it worth it? YES. To me, so far, it is. Because all the red tape is only making me want it more. The anticipation is fantastic! I am literally chomping at the bit to buy my first load of old junk. And I have to say, all in all, the government officials have been kind and helpful. Especially at the Board of Equalization. They're my favourite. Thanks Sarah. 

By the time I sell my first piece, I will have achieved something great. I think it will be a moment in my life. Another goal I just went for. I am proud of that. Point is, if you like my blog and you like my taste, it's going to be available shortly. As long as no one else gets married. My oven needs a break.

More to come. ;-)

Heather Denno, Jaxson's mother, was left to console her sobbing son, who was devastated to discover his favourite Marvel comics hero was a work of fiction.She told People magazine: 'He was fine as soon as he talked to him. [He] was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit.'
