Don’t have much time this evening. Tired. Discovered something quite unexpected but thoroughly enjoyable considering the circumstances. After 12 hours of personal introspection and consciousness and spiritual work sometimes there’s nothing better than an old movie. Just to bring one down to earth a bit and free the attention particles. Look, look away. Look, look away. It’s a technique employed both by the Avatar materials and Anthony Robbin’s work. Though Tony refers to it as “immersion, abstinence…” It’s also a powerful method to master skills much faster when learning or studying almost anything.
So… There’s a little something on the tele called TMC or TCM. A channel called Turner Classic Movies or close to that. It’s quite wonderful. I had heard of the channel, but this whole researching television project is still fairly new to me. I didn’t realize how special it was, playing all these classic old films, some over a hundred years old and some of which have never before been seen on television. Yes it’s very niche, perhaps only for film geeks, but one could easily become addicted to it for a few weeks at least I’d think.
Last night we caught a surprisingly powerful film called THE LION starring Trevor Howard, William Holden and the French actress Capucine. Highly recommended. Trevor Howard = new fave classic actor. He was very cool. This evening we are watching the original film version of HG Welles classic THE INVISIBLE MAN starring Claude Raines. Interestingly enough this is Raines’ first starring role. Imagine that. In it he’s already “the finest actor of his day” Claude Raines… Very good.
More later. Check out the network if old movies are your thing.
