  1. I’m pretty sure that an ape is not a monkey. But your discussion of F for Fake brought back memories of an iconic moment in the film when the little monkey cleans Clifford Irving’s ear ( that might be tangentially connected to your recent window reflections and cloud observations.

    I’m not sure if I remember the film correctly or not, but I think that Welles made a bold claim implying multiple layers of fakery involving flying saucers, the govt. and his WotW broadcast from 1938.

  2. Yes, there was a monkey in F for Fake! Another synchronicity!

    The claim about UFOs is in the trailer for F for Fake, but not in the movie itself:

  3. Frank,

    I remember Tom Rhodes, he was riding high on the interstitial work on comedy central and doing a college tour. Saw him in Auburn in ’92 ish time frame, I’m a bit hazy on the date but it was during the time he was doing the “DJ JAzzy Trevor at the mall foodcourt” jokes about white kids thinking they were gangsta’s. For what its worth I remember the soderbergh movies also.

    When you think about all the things you think about and the fact that it takes actual time to think about these things, it’s easy to see how some items would fall past without making an exposure. I know the feeling.
