Psyche's Cinema? πŸ“•πŸŽ₯πŸ˜‡πŸ‘ΊπŸ‘½πŸ‘»πŸΏπŸŽ¬

I was re-reading an old 2020 post about a podcast show called 'Some Other Sphere' and wondered if it was still going in 2024?
Some Other Sphere and Exoconsciousness?
And there were some rather interesting recent podcast episodes there, including this one pictured above, considering my last post was about the 'Barbie'/'Babylon' movies -
The Babylon/Barbie Double Feature?πŸŽ₯πŸ‘ΌπŸ‘ΊπŸΏπŸŽ¬
Psyche's Cinema
Laura Lewis Barr makes movies featuring Barbie like dolls and Lego blocks at her 'Psyche's Cinema' site.
I've only watched the one titled 'The Clown' so far, but I plan to watch some more latter.
The Clown
Oddly enough, I recently bought a book of Grimm's Fairy Tales from the Op Shop I work at part time.
Baba Yaga?
I also found it personally amusing to find this image above of a Baba Yaga on the Psyche's Cinema homepage, as I had just bought Krissy Kneen's book on Wednesday night from the Avid Reader bookstore literally off her and Krissy signed it for me, too -
"Confronting my grandmother the Baba Yaga"?
Everyone likes a good story, I guess ... and movie? 
The Storytelling Animal

UPDATE: Same day
I watched one of the latest movies called 'Dumpling' today, even though I can't stand eating dumplings (or as I like to call them "oil sponges") myself, and I found it interesting, especially when reading a blog post about the movie breaking it down in Jungian terms by Dr. Joanna Gardner.
I prefer pizza to dumplings -

I wonder what Dr. Joanna Gardner would have thought about 'The Gardner: A Cautionary Comedy'?
'The Gardner: A Cautionary Comedy'
I must say that I dug it:-)

Pirates of the Caribbean Actor Tamayo Perry Killed in Shark Attack in Hawaii? 🌊🦈

I remember seeing 'JAWS' at the cinema as a kid in the 70s and critics of the film saying how rare shark attacks were.

killed in a shark attack while surfing in Hawaii
But news stories like this one do nothing to quell my fears about hitting the surf.
Jaws (1975)
'JAWS' turns 50 next year, as would have Tamayo Perry I noticed.
I've written many times before on this blog about my fear (and love) of sharks -

Accidental Truth? πŸ™ŠπŸ‘½πŸ›ΈπŸƒ

I noticed recently that I was getting a lot of traffic to my old 2020 post about a Travis Walton movie -
Travis - The True Story Of Travis Walton?
So, I read that post again and wondered why?
Maybe it was because Jennifer Stein had produced a new movie recently?
I saw that her latest movie was called 'Accidental Truth: UFO Revelations' and that it was playing on TUBI, so I watched it.
Accidental Truth: UFO Revelations (2023)
And what I found amusing was that it was narrated by actor Matthew Modine (AKA Private Joker from 'Full Metal Jacket'):-)
That pretty much sums up
the whole movie for me when you have such clowns as Nick Pope (who couldn't lie straight in bed IMO) and Chris Mellon.
Richard Dolan is about the only one in this movie who I would trust to tell the truth, but what would he know anyway?
The whole field of UFOlogy seems like one big joke to someone like me:-)
Good luck getting any sense out of those Government clowns on the subject🀑
A 'Hidden Experience' Talk with Richard Dolan from 2012, the Year That the World Was Going to End, Remember?-)

UPDATE: 2024
Maybe it was just an accident on Prime Video's behalf?-)

Jung in the World | Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth and Art with Lewis Hyde?πŸ“•πŸƒπŸŽ πŸ’πŸ’πŸ€‘

I have had so many synchs involving applesmonkeysturtles and Chicago over the last few months and couldn't figure out what tied them all together, until this podcast dropped onto my Apple Podcast playlist this morning from the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago
Trickster Makes This World:
Myth and Art
Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth, and Art
Paperback – February 16, 1999
I'm yet to finish writing up those posts, but as I do, I'll be referring back to this podcast/post, because it links them all together for me.
This door below is the door mentioned in the podcast.
When one door closes, the same door opens?
"A tall, thin door stands ajar – but it is also closed. In 1927 a carpenter, working to Marcel Duchamp’s specifications, installed a door in a corner of Duchamp’s studio at 11, rue Larrey, Paris. The apartment was small, and Duchamp wanted to solve the problem of not being able to close off the bathroom and bedroom from the main space. This was achieved by a clever design which proposed that a single door be inserted into the cramped corner where the two doorways were juxtaposed at a ninety-degree angle. This deployment of a single door for an area that seemed to require two meant that when the opening to the bedroom was fully closed, that to the bathroom remained open, and vice versa, thus countering the French saying that a door cannot be open and shut at the same time. Arturo Schwarz, in his The Complete Works of Marcel Duchamp (Thames and Hudson, 1969) described this structure as a “Three-dimensional pun: a door which is permanently opened and shut at the same time” (p. 496)."

The Six Degrees of Donald Sutherland?πŸŽ₯πŸŽ¨πŸŽ­πŸ–ŒπŸŽ¬

I'll be celebrating Donald Sutherland's life tonight buy rewatching one of my favorite movies starring him, 'Six Degrees of Separation'.
He passed away on my eldest son's birthday, too.
