The video shows what’s left of the famous Touchdown Jesus statue by I-75 in Monroe, Ohio. It got struck by lightning on June 14, 2010. It also caught on fire, resulting in a burndown of the statue and the attic of a building adjacent to the now-destroyed statue. It hasn’t been rebuilt yet. The news about this was nation-wide and all over the news. This is the REAL and TRUE video of what’s remaining on Touchdown Jesus. This was filmed on I-75 North from Mile 24-32, with the view of Touchdown Jesus halfway through the video. The green screen appearances were because other people were on the computer, and I got back on with a little green screen. The song is “If I Could Fly” By Joe Satriani
Opening in selected cities in the US starting July 31. From the director of Manufactured Landscapes. Accidents, chance, fate and the elusive quest to make sense out of tragedy underpin director Jennifer Baichwal’s captivating new work, an elegant cinematic meditation on the metaphysical effects of being struck by lightning.

MONROE, Ohio — A six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground, police said. The “King of Kings” statue, one of southwest Ohio’s most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati. The lightning strike set the statue ablaze around 11:15 pm, Monroe police dispatchers said. The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown. It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained early Tuesday. The fire spread from the statue to an adjacent amphitheater but was confined to the attic area, and no one was injured, police Chief Mark Neu said. The fire department would release a monetary damage estimate Tuesday, he said. Travelers on Interstate 75 often were startled to come upon the huge statue by the roadside, but many said America needs more symbols like it. So many people stopped at the church campus that church officials had to build a walkway to accommodate them. The 4000-member, nondenominational church was founded by former horse trader Lawrence Bishop and his wife. Bishop said in 2004 he was trying to help people, not impress them, with the statue. He said his wife proposed the Jesus …

www.avimoas.com Reported by Sara Kronenberg News Channel 8 WKBT NEWS Was That a UFO Over Monroe County? “If you saw an unknown, glowing object floating in the sky, you could assume it was a lot of things, including a UFO. One Monroe County family says they still have no idea what they saw over their home last weekend, but they made sure they caught it on video so someone could figure it out. “I have no idea. It could be a goverment thing, I don’t know, it could be aliens. I have no idea,” says Zach Rueckheim. All Zach and his dad, Paul, knows is it was it was something weird. “I always look out in the sky this way and all of a sudden I saw a light and it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before,” Paul says. “I didn’t believe him at first so I came out and looked at it for a little bit then I went back in and got my camera,” Zach says. They spent nearly a half hour last Saturday night, watching the object floating not far from their farm outside of Sparta. Changing colors between green and red, they can’t explain what it was. But it wasn’t just the changing colors that was weird, but how, as the Rueckheim’s say, the object would appear and then just disappear. Not ones to jump to conclusions, the Rueckheim’s shot video for an answer. An answer one expert says might be pretty simple. “I don’t think it’s a meteor,” says Gordon Stewart, director of the UW-La Crosse Planetarium. “I don’t think it’s a comet. No comet I’ve ever seen behaves like that. I don’t think it’s a …

1964 www.amazon.com Watch the full film: thefilmarchived.blogspot.com Monroe returned to the set of Something’s Got to Give and filmed a sequence in which she appeared nude in a swimming pool. Commenting that she wanted to “push Liz Taylor off the magazine covers,” she gave permission for several partially nude photographs to be published by Life. Having only reported for work on twelve occasions out of a total of 35 days of production, Monroe was dismissed. The studio 20th Century Fox filed a lawsuit against her for half a million dollars, and the studio’s vice president, Peter Levathes, issued a statement saying “The star system has gotten way out of hand. We’ve let the inmates run the asylum, and they’ve practically destroyed it.” Monroe was replaced by Lee Remick, and when Dean Martin refused to work with any other actress, he was also threatened with a lawsuit. Following her dismissal, Monroe engaged in several high-profile publicity ventures. She gave an interview to Cosmopolitan and was photographed at Peter Lawford’s beach house sipping champagne and walking on the beach. She next posed for Bert Stern for Vogue in a series of photographs that included several nudes. Published after her death, they became known as ‘The Last Sitting’. Richard Meryman interviewed her for Life, in which Monroe reflected upon her relationship with her fans and her uncertainties in identifying herself as a “star” and a “sex symbol.” She referred to the events surrounding Arthur Miller’s …

RIP Walter Cronkite 1916-2009 From Wikipedia: Cronkite then continued to report for the next several minutes while still waiting official word of the President’s apparent death. While continuing to affirm that there was no official confirmation he reminded viewers that the priests, Rather, and several government sources were relaying word that in fact Kennedy was dead. At approximately 2:38 pm EST, Cronkite was remarking on the increased security presence in Dallas for the President’s visit for fear of protests, bringing up the assault on Adlai Stevenson again. While Cronkite was speaking one of two news editors who had been standing by the newsroom’s two wire machines pulled a bulletin from the Associated Press machine and began walking toward Cronkite’s desk with it. “Throughout the streets of Dallas, the Dallas Police have been augmented by some 400 policemen called in on their day off because there were some fears and concerns in Dallas that, uh…that there might be demonstrations, at least, that could embarrass the President. Because it was only on October 24 that our ambassador of the United Nations, Adlai Stevenson, was assaulted in Dallas leaving a dinner meeting there…” Just as he had said that, the editor handed Cronkite the bulletin. Cronkite stopped speaking, put on his eyeglasses, looked over the bulletin sheet for a moment, took off his glasses, and made the official announcement: From Dallas, Texas, the flash, apparently official: (reading AP flash …
