“The Relic”

Just as a reminder, DVDs of Melody Gilbert’s Urban Exploration documentary Into the Darkness will be available in a few short weeks; until that time, you can enjoy this YouTube video, which isn’t actually a trailer or preview of the film, but whose subject is officially exposed in it. (If you prefer something higher-quality, a Windows Media Player (.wmv) copy of the original, “non sanitized” version of “The Relic” can be downloaded here (15MB WMV movie).

As a note, it appears that a documentary is forthcoming about AeroJet. Anyone know anything about it?

Falwell’s FBI File

The Washington Post has posted an excerpt of Jerry Falwell’s FBI file. It’s not terribly interesting, except for the bit about:

“…a 4″ by 3″ plastic box which contained a live scorpion, which is being held by the Richmond Division and has since decease [sic].”

I wonder how much paperwork that generated…
