Criss Angel is a theatrical magician, and goes for a shock value. So a guillotine stunt goes wrong...at least that is what the video shows. Its from a back angle....and is purported to be "unreleased" footage. The video was posted on July 31...and one would think that if an accident like a beheading really happened the media would be all over it....especially in Vegas. Oh! I forgot to mention- the new season of A & E's Criss Angel- Mindfreak is set to debut soon.
There are going to be many many stories about Walter Cronkite, so as I was driving home listening to the obit from CBS on the radio...I thought back to Kent State. The killings had just taken place, and students were on the commons, and the Guardsmen told us "Campus was closed, Leave by 5PM". So I grabbed my girlfriend, and her friend, and whatever belongings I could get into my car, and drove home to Cleveland. I didn't know how big and sensational the story of the Kent State shootings were...until at my Mom's house, we turned on the CBS Network News, and the lead story from Walter Cronkite was the shootings at Kent State. That day, and really that broadcast had a significant effect on my life. He was a true pioneer in broadcasting, and as I said on Buzzfeed, a whole generation will miss him.
The use of friend's names by Hollywood producers is frequent in Hollywood, in a Kids Show, my daughters name was used, and was even part of a McDonalds Happy Days meal. But in some cases, peoples names are used in series in allegedly revengeful ways, and that is what may be the case for Sarah Goldfinger, who was involved in a real estate deal with Scott and Melinda Tamkin that didn't happen. Fast foward to a CSI episode that included real estate agents Scott and Melinda who were involved in some bad bad things...as one would expect from CSI. The fact the original characters name was Tamkin, and allegedly changed at the last minute, adds to the case. This should be an interesting case...Hollywood, Revenge, Money, Property, Prestige....The Tamkins are suing for 6 million dollars.
