Join producer April Hannah and director Michael Habernig for a screening of their latest film, Beyond the Physical. Part II of The Path Documentary Series, the film investigates topics of out of body phenomena, remote viewing, and multiple dimensions. (Part I, Afterlife (2009), explores the concepts of life after death and encounters with what happens to the soul when it leaves the physical body.) Much of the new film was shot at the The Monroe Institute in Faber, Virginia, and features TMI’s former research director and president F. Holmes “Skip” Atwater, its former executive directer Paul Rademacher, leading out-of-body expert William Buhlman, and professional physicist Thomas W. Campbell, author of My Big TOE. A question and answer panel with the filmmakers will follow the screening. For more information about the event, films, and DVDs, please visit the links below.

MysteryPeople Presents STEPHEN ROMANO and “MILES ARCENEAUX” at Bookpeople, Austin – October 1st, 2012
My good friend Stephen Romano is having a book signing for his latest work. The event is at Book People on South Lamar Blvd, Monday, October 1st at 7pm. Steve is the creator of several amazing works ranging from novels (The Riot Act, Black Light, and others), to TV & Movie Adaptations (Masters of Horror: Incident On And Off A Mountain Road and others), to comic books and digital art (Zombie, Shock Festival, Halloween Returns to Haddonfield, Masters of Horror: Incident On And Off A Mountain Road, and others) , to DVDs (StarCrash Special Edition and Shock Festival), as well as other artistic creations.
STEPHEN ROMANO is an acclaimed multi-media artist, whose unique jack-of-all-trades approach to the genres of horror, crime fiction, sci-fi and exploitation has produced innovative, award-winning work. He is an accomplished author, screenwriter and illustrator. His short stories, novels and comic books have garnered critical acclaim from some of the most respected authors and media sources in the world.He is the co-author of Blacklight, which is currently in pre-production as a feature film, under Oscar nominated producer Michael DeLuca, on which Stephen served as co-screenwriter. Resurrection Express is a new high octane thriller featuring Elroy Coffin. There is no code Coffin can’t break, nothing he can’t hack, no safe he can’t get into. But for the past two years, he’s been incarcerated in a maximum-security hellhole after a job gone bad, driven to near-madness by the revelation of his beloved wife’s murder. Now a powerful and mysterious visitor who calls herself a “concerned citizen” offers Elroy his freedom if he’ll do another job, and sweetens the deal with proof that his wife might still be alive. All Elroy has to do is hack into one of the most complicated and deadliest security grids in the world—clear and simple instructions for the best in the business. Or so he thinks….

Also, a group of guys using MY NAME as there nom de plume will also be there showing off their new book.
MILES ARCENEAUX is the storytelling alter ego of Texas-based writers Brent Douglass, John T. Davis and James R. Dennis. Miles was born many years ago among a group of old friends vacationing on the Texas Gulf Coast. What began as a literary lark—a daisy-chain novel with chapters written by friends in turn—evolved into a dedicated project spearheaded by these three. In their latest, Thin Slice of Life, Charlie Sweetwater returns to his hometown to visit his brother but arrives to find he is a no-show: The Coast Guard has discovered Johnny’s shrimp boat drifting abandoned in the Gulf. Is it “death by misadventure” as the authorities presume, or something more sinister? Meanwhile, Fulton Harbor, where Charlie’s family have docked their shrimp boats for generations, has changed–and not for the better. Charlie finds himself falling for his brother’s girlfriend, whose zealous desire to see justice served tests his own limits for loyalty and commitment. Unlikely heroes arise from improbable circumstances, and the denizens of the small seaside community find their fortunes and fates ebbing and flowing like the tidal flux of the ocean itself.

Recently, an attempt was made to bring UFO Close Encounter witness Travis Walton to Central Texas (first Austin then San Antonio). Sadly, the attempt failed.
Ironically, there was a successful conference (that was a nearly mirror image of the one attempted in San Antonio) featuring Walton and other presenters in Laredo, Texas late last year…

This Thursday, Austinites (and visitors from out of town for SXSW-2012) have an opportunity to hear one of the most famous counter-culture writers from the alternative press discuss his latest book.
From Publishers Weekly:
Ritual America: Secret Brotherhoods and Their Influence on American Society: A Visual Guide
Adam Parfrey and Craig Heimbichner, foreword by Loren Coleman. Feral House (Consortium, dist.), $29.95 paper over board (380p) ISBN 978-1-936239-14-6
There have been hundreds of clandestine clubs in America, but as Coleman notes in the foreword, we “[do] not know much about the hidden landscape in which we live everyday.” In unmasking this “widespread covert reality”—a motley group of secret societies from Elks and Masons to the Ku Klux Klan, the Bohemian Club, and the Rosicrucians—Heimbichner, a contributor to Paranoia magazine, and Parfrey (editor of Apocalypse Culture) survey secret passwords, garments, handshakes, songs, and initiations to show how these offbeat orders and brotherhoods have shaped America. The pages are packed with unusual images, many not previously printed, in paper ephemera, postcards, cartoons, sheet music, and art by numerous illustrators, along with kooky costumes and helmets. Controversial figures such as Scientology’s L. Ron Hubbard and “Masonic Pope” Albert Pike are profiled. One bizarre section has ads for items (like axes) used in hazings and sadistic initiation pranks. The military is described as “a bastion of Masonic membership,” and a dubious connection is drawn between waterboarding and “fraternal traditions.” The total effect is that of a tattered, bulging scrapbook of outré oddities on high-quality slick paper with an attractive graphic design.

From the Feral House email blast: Prepare yourself, Austin!
Austin, TX, we love you. Yes we do. Filled up the Dobie Theater to its capacity back in ’91 or ’92, and spoke in a stadium mascot uniform. Chicken Little, specifically, since the lecture was about Apocalypse Culture. Frank Kozik did the poster: a Nazi minister with red Shriner clown nose.
Twenty years later, we’re back to speak about Ritual America in a multi-media extravaganza at DOMY Books, just after Process Media puts forward a discussion and slides from Isis Aquarian and Electricity Aquarian of your favorite cult-commune, The Source Family. Also speaking is Jodi Wille, editor of the Process Media book about The Source, and co-director of the amazing documentary about the family, which is credited as being based on the book. It’s receiving its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

“Understanding and Working With Your Soul’s Messages”
Dreams are such an important part of human existence. I truly feel that if humanity were to pay more close attention to dreams we would live in a better world.
Come explore your dreams with guide Lois DiMari. Lois is the newest board member of INACS, the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Study, for which I serve as Vice President. I’ve had several fantastic conversations with Lois and expect this to be a very good workshop:
Lois moved to Austin last year. She is co-owner of “Become Amazing! Health, Wellness and Success Coaching” (www.BecomeAmazingNow.com). She did her doctoral research on telepathic dreaming and has helped people understand their dreams for many years. Please see the attached flyer for more details. Lois recently was nominated to the Board of Directors of the Institute for Neuroscience and Consciousness Studies (INACS).
11am, we are meeting at the Capitol for our December 3rd: Be Heard rally. In an unintentional coincidence, a Ron Paul march is also scheduled to rally and march at the same time and location. We are a non-Partisan movement, we do not endorse any candidate, but we welcome anyone to attend our event.
Occupy Austin – Capitol Police Clarify NEW Memo Confirming 24/7 Access to the Capitol Grounds
MEMO Released by DPS on 12/1/11:
Anyone may visit the Capitol at any time to exercise his or her rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Texas Constitution. Visitors may remain in the Capitol building during operating hours. The Capitol grounds are open 24 hours a day.
To balance the needs of all Texans who wish to visit their State Capitol, as well as ensure the safety of visitors, the State Preservation Board adopted rules regulating the conduct of any person who visits the Capitol. These rules were adopted in 1994 and amended in 2000. They can be found in the Texas Administrative Code at section 111.27. The State Preservation Board enforces these rules regardless of the stated purpose of the individual violating the rules. These rules are in addition to any other generally applicable laws.
Many groups follow the State Preservation Board procedures for scheduling an event and reserving a location on the grounds or inside the building. These groups will receive priority over visitors who have not scheduled an event. Visitors will be asked to relocate to a different area of the building or grounds if necessary to accommodate a scheduled event.
The State Preservation Board is responsible for preserving, restoring, and maintaining the Texas State Capitol for the benefit of all Texans. Ensuring that the building and grounds are safe and accessible for all visitors is a priority. The restrictions that are in place are necessary to maintain this historic building and its grounds for the enjoyment of all visitors.
