I’m still having a very hard time processing all of this. Despite not having the healthiest diet and not making the most healthy lifestyle choices, I have been remarkably healthy throughout my adult life. Until a few weeks ago, I’d never been hospitalized as an adult. Never had any surgical procedures performed. Never had a major illness or significant injury. Never broke a bone in my body. Haven’t ever been reliant on any prescription drugs of any kind. Haven’t even had a primary care physician for many, many years.

But now, literally overnight, that reality has been replaced with a painful and, if I’m being perfectly honest, terrifying new reality. Based on what my doctors have told me and what I have read, the prognosis is not good. My oncologist seems to be of the opinion that I only have a couple years left on this planet, if that. The odds of surviving for even five more years are very, very low.

Cops ID man whose butchered head, feet, hands found near Hollywood sign
Victim is 66-year-old retired airline worker
By Philip Caulfield / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Saturday, January 21 2012, 2:11 PM

...

Police say the dismembered remains were those of Hervey Medellin, 66, a retired Mexicana Airlines employee who lived with a roommate near the hiking trail. Dog walkers discovered a head in a plastic bag along the trail on Tuesday, according to local reports.
 
Los Angeles County coroner officials said they were able to identify Medellin through fingerprints on one of his hands, which were found 50 yards away from the head on Wednesday by investigators and a cadaver-sniffing dog.
 
Friends told KCBS-TV that the Bronson Canyon area of Griffith Park where the body parts were found was one Medellin's favorite hiking spots.
 
Neighbor Andrew Hill, who lived in the apartment below Medellin, told the Los Angeles Times that he heard an angry, late-night scuffle in the victim’s apartment about three weeks ago.
 
Police are questioning at least one person in connection with the case, the Times said. No arrests have been made.
 
Cops were also questioning neighbors in the region, including Brad Pitt's bodyguard.
 
The star and his gal pal, Angelina Jolie, have a house in the Hollywood Hills near where the body parts were found.
 
Dog-walker Lauren Kornberg, whose golden retriever, Ollie, discovered the head on Tuesday, said she initially thought it was a movie prop.
 
"Our assumption was that there was always people filming up there, and it was a prop," Kornberg, who was walking the with her mother when they made the grisly find, she told HLN. "We walked down the ravine and got closer and realized it was a freshly severed human head."
 
Police concluded a search of the 4,200-acre Griffith Park on Thursday, and the park was reopened to the public on Friday.

David L. McGowan

A lifelong Angeleno, David was born in Torrance on March 25, 1960, and died at home in Eagle Rock on November 22, 2015. He graduated from Torrance High in 1978 and from UCLA in 1983. In addition to owning his own construction business, he was a courageous and brilliant investigative writer whose insightful work opened the eyes and minds of many. He is survived by daughters Alissa, Megan, and Shane McGowan, parents J. Robert and Shirley Griffith McGowan, and brothers Michael and Craig.

Published in the Los Angeles Times from Dec. 1 to Dec. 6, 2015



Barthalamew is in mourning. Dave not only chronicled the psychological operation emanating from Laurel Canyon (not San Francisco) which thrives today as “Classic Rock” but he was a rock opera of a researcher in many other areas. It may be that his “Boston Marathon” (John Wells Caravan to midnight) research ruffled a last straw hairdo. We post the picture below because his brother states that, tragically, deep pain resulted in this ordeal where he was healthy in all the interviews we listen to here in Moldova.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTMjzNuFvj0

Joe Atwill returns to the show to discuss the Dionysian rock festivals of the 1960's, the Beatles and the British Invasion. We talk about how the rock festival fad was part of a mass mind control experiment. We also discuss the Fab Four's ties to Freemasonry and the likelihood that the entire British popular music scene of that era was a psy-op targeting the American people.

The NOWMAN Show: Denny Tedesco- The Wrecking Crew- Part 1

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wrecking_Crew_(2008_film)
The Wrecking Crew is a 2008 American documentary film directed by Denny Tedesco. It covers the story of the Los Angeles-based group of session musicians known as the Wrecking Crew, famed for having played on numerous hit recordings throughout the 1960s. The film premiered at the 2008 South by Southwest Film Festival.


Popular music of the 1960s was dominated by young bands like the Beach Boys, the Mamas & the Papas, Jan and Dean, and the Monkees. Listening to rock and roll on jukeboxes and car radios created devoted fans of these groups, whose music communicated the optimism and sorrow of a generation contending with strong countercultural forces.

Record companies happily supplied the public with new songs and musical groups, all packaged with artistic photographs and biographical profiles. Left out of the story was an important historical fact: the bands, in some, but not all, cases, did not play the instruments heard on their records. Instead, the task of recording the perfect tempo, pitch, and timbre fell to a small group of accomplished session musicians.

Synopsis
The Wrecking Crew documents the work of studio players who recorded the tracks for such hits as "California Dreamin'", "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", "Be My Baby", "The Beat Goes On", and "Good Vibrations".[2] Interviews with producers, engineers, and session musicians reveal the warmth and humor that allowed their collective talents to turn a simple chord chart into an international phenomenon.

Robin Williams Sells His Topanga Canyon Home
May 05, 1985|RU

Robin Williams and his wife, Valerie, have sold their Topanga Canyon home to live year-'round on their 600-acre ranch in the Sonoma wine country--year-'round, that is, except when the popular actor/comedian is maintaining his Hollywood connection through the couple's apartment in Los Angeles.

"They sold their Topanga digs for $270,000 to a husband-and-wife writing and riding team," Gary Harryman, who handled the transaction through the Topanga office of Malibu Realty, said. The buyers are Gene Larson, a writer, and Jodi Johnson, whom Harryman described as a "top-notch horsewoman."

"Robin and Valerie built a large plantation house on the ranch, which they've owned for some time, and they have every comfort there that a Caesar ever had," Harryman noted.

They also have some cows, chickens and, of course, grapevines at the ranch, which they share with their 2-year-old son Zachary.

The ranch isn't far from where Williams, 32, attended Redwood High and College of Marin, and he frequently drives, though it's several hours away, to the Bay Area to appear in comedy clubs there.

Robin Williams Sells L.A. Pied A Terre

...

According to Your Mama?s research, re-listing his baronial estate in Northern California isn?t the only recent shuffle Mister Williams has made to his residential real estate portfolio. In February of 2009 Mister Williams, via trust, paid Gossip Girl co-creator/writer/producer Stephanie Savage $857,500 for a modest pied-a-terre in Los Angeles? historic and leafy Bronson Canyon.** Last September, to little or no hoo-ha or hullabaloo, the property popped back up for sale with an asking price of $939,000. Within six weeks the price dropped by $40,000 and in late January, according to property records, Mister Williams sold the house to a non-celebrity for $869,000.
...
Mister Williams, now married to his third wife, graphic designer Susan Schneider, also owns a six bedroom and 7.5 bathroom bay front home in the ?ber-affluent community of Belvedere-Tiburon. Your Mama?s research shows Mister Williams purchased the large and luxurious if architecturally nondescript, 6,517 square foot single-story residence in the latter days of 2008 for $4,050,000.

Brett and Adria Copeland (pictured), a young couple who have been renting the house for the past three years, noticed Tuesday that the foundations of their home had begun sinking

A $700,000 house in Hollywood Hills is in danger of collapsing after rain tore down a 9,000-pound slab of concrete from its foundation and balcony and sent it tumbling onto the road.

The 640-square-foot home, located on Gould Avenue, lost a huge chunk of its structure Wednesday. Laurel Canyon Boulevard has remained shut down since the incident, which left rubble on the roadway.


Brett and Adria Copeland, who have been renting the house for the past three years, noticed Tuesday that the foundations of their home had begun sinking. The pair moved out to a hotel room and weren't injured when a nine-square-yard part of the house gave out.

The incident came as days of heavy rains in California caused flooding and mudslides.

Oh the NYT obit for Melissa Gold (Bill Graham's "girlfriend" that died with him in the helo crash into power lines ...


bill-graham-melissa-gold.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Graham_(promoter)
Bill Graham (January 8, 1931 – October 25, 1991) was an American impresario and rock concert promoter from the 1960s until his death.

Graham was killed in a helicopter crash near Vallejo, California on October 25, 1991, while returning home from a Huey Lewis and the News concert at the Concord Pavilion.[6] Graham had attended the event to discuss promoting a benefit concert for the victims of the 1991 Oakland firestorm, after a large portion of the Oakland/Berkeley Hills area burned. Once he had obtained the commitment from the News to perform, he returned to his helicopter, which crashed shortly after take-off, just 20 miles from the concert site.[6][22]

Flying in weather reported as low overcast, rain and gusty winds, the aircraft flew directly into a 223-foot high-voltage tower along Hwy 37, which runs between Vallejo and Marin County. Also killed in the crash was pilot Steve Kahn and Graham's girlfriend, Melissa Gold, ex-wife of author Herbert Gold

https://www.nytimes.com/1991/10/28/obituaries/melissa-gold-47-aide-for-california-causes.html

Melissa Gold, who was active in various civic causes, including help for earthquake victims in San Francisco and was a companion of Bill Graham, the rock music impressario, died Friday in the helicopter crash near San Francisco that killed Mr. Graham and his pilot. She was 47 years old and lived in San Francisco.

Mrs. Gold was also a member of a prominent East Coast family. Her father, Joseph Richardson Dilworth, is a former chairman and chief executive officer of the Rockefeller Group in New York City.

Mrs. Gold was born in Washington and grew up in Princeton, N.J. She was a graduate of Radcliffe College and moved to San Francisco, where she married Herbert Gold, a writer. After a divorce, she married Robert L. Anderson, a lawyer, from who she was also divorced.

She and Mr. Graham were first acquainted about 12 years ago, her father said, and their friendship was renewed when they worked on the plans for the public welcoming of Nelson Mandela to San Francisco last year. They had recently been working on a project to provide money to improve public schools.
...
Besides her father, survivors include her mother, Elizabeth, of Princeton; a daughter, Nina Gold of New York City; twin sons, Ethan Gold, a student at Harvard University, and Ari Gold, a student at Columbia University; a sister, Alexandria (Lucy) Nolan of Silver City, N.M., and two brothers, Charles D. Dilworth of San Francisco and Joseph R. Dilworth Jr. of Bronxville, N.Y.

who is Herbert gold ?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Gold
Herbert Gold (born March 9, 1924) is an American novelist.

Gold was born in Cleveland, Ohio in a Russian Jewish family, and raised in Lakewood, a community he was later to memorialize in his first book, Birth of a Hero, published in 1951 by Viking Press. He moved to New York City at age 17 after several of his poems had been accepted by New York literary magazines. While there, he studied philosophy at Columbia University and became involved with the burgeoning Beat Generation, which resulted in a lifelong friendship with writer Allen Ginsberg.

Joel Selvin on Bill Graham's death, 20 years later - SFGate
https://www.sfgate.com/entertainment/article/Joel-Selvin-on-Bill-Graham-s-death-20-years-later-2326044.php
Oct 22, 2011 - It was the wife of the road manager of Huey Lewis and the News, who had played a concert the night before at the Concord Pavilion. "Bill doesn't answer and Rosanne said Killer's not home," she said, referring to the wife of Bill Graham's helicopter pilot, Steve Kahn, known universally as Killer.
...
Mario Cipollina, bass player for Huey Lewis and the News, told Graham he could take his limousine and Cipollina would ride home with one of the other guys from the band. John Toffoli, general manager of the Concord Pavilion, assured Graham the helicopter could be stowed overnight and covered with tarps.

Steve Kahn leaned into the crowd. "I'll have you home in 15 minutes," he said.

The band was onstage playing when gusting winds blew Graham; his girlfriend, Melissa Gold; and pilot Kahn into a 200-foot electrical tower outside Sonoma. The entire concert went dark and quiet for a moment before power came back.

Nobody knew, at the time, what had happened.
