TheVamps Bites Tart Emeritus Theda Bara The Original Vamp Before Harlow, before Mae, well before Madonna and her Gaultier
cone-bra, there was Theda. One of the top three silent film stars in 1918, behind Mary Pickford and Charlie Chaplin, Theda
Bara was the first sex symbol for the masses. Theda was renowned for her portrayal of sinful, smoky-eyed women who lured proper
husbands away from their frigid and heavily-corseted wives. Granted, often she led these men to corruption and dissolution,
and occasionally death, but hey, given a choice all thinking men would rather go down (and up) with Theda than drift towards
death with docile, whey-faced brides. (Do you want it to be great? Or do you want it to be easy?)
Because of Theda's dark allure for America's husbands and her influence
on young women, preachers all over the country regularly denounced her from their pulpits. Bara was almost 30 when her film
career began, which was considered over-the-hill back then (and still is in Hollywood, evidently). She shaved five years off
her age in her publicity, the least of the whoppers in her Fox studio bio which billed her as the daughter of an eastern prince,
born in the shadow of the sphinx, whose name was an anagram for 'death.' In fact, she was born Theodosia Goodman in Ohio on
July 20, 1885 to wealthy Jewish immigrant parents. As a child, she was bookish, "strong-willed and mischievious," and never
bothered to learn sewing and embroidery, as most young ladies did back then. Her biographer, Eve Golden, says, "Little Theda
ran away from home at every opportunity and, according to her mother, 'showed a positive genius in ways and means of escaping
our vigilance. We had the locks in the entrance doors placed high above her tiny reach, and yet she disappeared as if by magic.'
Once she escaped wearing her mother's best gown and hat, trailing them down the street with a frantic mother in pursuit. Much
to her mother's shock,'We afterwards discovered she had hammered a small hole in the screen door, just large enough to crawl
through.'" ** In Hollywood, she was known as a sharply intelligent, well-read woman with a deep interest in spiritualism.
Not all of her roles were femme fatales. She played a few sweet
innocents who were wronged, including a praised Juliet, and showed an instinctive comic touch in a few of her lighter films.
But she was most famous for playing deliciously dangerous and unbridled Vamps such as Cleopatra, Salome, and Madame DuBarry,
in over 40 films, including: Fool There Was The Devil's Daughter Lady Audley's Secret Tiger Woman The Darling of Paris Madame
Mystery When a Woman Sins The She-Devil The Siren's Song Unchastened Woman Check out this review of Unchastened Woman: "Theda
portrayed Caroline Knollys, a newly-pregnant woman who discovers her husband (Wyndham Standing) is cheating on her. She takes
off to Venice, has her baby and gains a reputation as'the wickedest woman in Europe.' Returning to the U.S., trailing a string
of admirers, Caroline eventually wins her husband back. Not really a parody, the film is a light drawing room romantic comedy
with touches of pathos. **" Too bad she took the husband back, but this was the 1920s, and it was radical enough for a young
wife to take off to Europe, take a series of lovers, and return unchastened and triumphant. Like many of her heroines, and
unlike so many movie stars of the time, Theda did not come to a bad and early end. After marrying director Charles Brabin
in the 1920s, she gave up the business. Reportedly, she penned an unpublished memoir, What Women Never Tell, in this time,
and devoted herself to her two passions, reading and Brabin, to whom she was married for 33 years until her death in 1955.
At a time when women were either whores or housewives, Theda represented something new, the "Vamp," the sexually free goddess
who ushered in the era of the Flapper and of new freedom for women." For more on Theda, check out: The Theda Bara

In the back woods
of West Virginia, rednecks have been inbreeding so much that they have created a family of three siblings all repulsively
misformed with genetic mutations. These threehave been getting their kicks by kidnapping, mutitating and devouring anyone
who comes down their deserted dirt road.
Through a car mishap, brought about by a trap laid by the psychotic woods
folk, the six characters of the film are brought together and are left to find their way out of the woods. Their situation
goes from potentially scary to seriously terrifying as the three mu~tated inbreeds stalk them in the woods, picking them off
one by one using some visually twisted methods.
rong Turnisn't a bad film; it would have been more effective if had
been shot on grainy film similar to "Blair Witch" and used unknown, maybe non-professional actors? Nevertheless, rong Turn
still holds a few surprises. It utterly imitates the conventions of a classic horror film, in that you can anticipate every
jump, and look-away-moment. Its worth a watch and can definitely stand among the existing teen horror flicks proudly!
We saw Manna from Heaven with Mom (for my birthday) great "shoestring" movie with subtle scenes and
soft dialog with the golden rule theme of what happens when gobs of money suddenly becomes mysteriously available to a family
at just the right time and how they use the money--and how to bless others at the same time...i enjoy it... from http://www.fivesistersproductions.com

Blavatsky Net - Theosophy
This site focuses on Madame Blavatsky and her teaching
- Theosophy. It features an introduction to Theosophy, study aids, research tools, original text, supporting evidence, membership,
and visitor interaction.
Tour the Secret Doctrine - Blavatsky's master work - with Quote Of The Day for September 23:
These beings are the "Sons of Light," because they emanate from, and are self-generated in, that infinite Ocean of Light,
whose one pole is pure Spirit lost in the absoluteness of Non-Being, and the other, the matter in which it condenses,
crystallizing into a more and more gross type as it descends into manifestation. Therefore matter, thougt it is, in one sense,
but the illusive dregs of that Light whose limbs are the Creative Forces, yet has in it the full presence of the Soul, thereof,
of that Principle, which none-not even the "Sons of Light," evolved from its ABSOLUTE DARKNESS-will ever know. —
Secret Doctrine Vol I page 481.
Theosophy is a fragment of the ancient, once universal, wisdom teaching.
The masters of Theosophy, located in Tibet and around the world, preserve and extend this ancient wisdom. Periodically
they send forth one of their own - or a messenger - to help spread this teaching to all of humanity.
In the 1800's they had been searching for a century for the next messenger and finally settled upon Helena Blavatsky, born
to a noble Russian family. She saw the master who would be her teacher in her dreams as a child. She met him in Hyde Park
in London when she was 20. She managed to enter Tibet and was trained by those masters in Tibet from 1868 to 1870. From 1875
through her death in 1891 she spread that message around the world.
Theosophy is the name Blavatsky gave to that portion of knowledge that she brought from the masters to the world. It comes
from the term "Theosophia" used by the Neoplatonists to mean literally "knowledge of the divine".
"An Invitation to the Secret Doctrine." Helpful background and introduction to Blavatsky's magnum
opus - the monumental source book for esotericism in our age. More
Perhaps all of her work can be summed up in one of her maxims: Compassion is the law of laws. She explained that brotherhood
is not a mere ideal - it is a fact in nature on the spiritual plane. From that we derive a logical basis and a binding source
for morality that can guide and inspire us, even while more traditional religious sources are losing their compelling force.
She gives us the metaphysics from which we can deduce the most important priciples of how to live.
The master collection of her work extends 3 feet on a bookshelf. (In today's age it is also available on a CD-rom.) Her
master work is the Secret Doctrine, written in 1888 - a book that will remain seminal for centuries. Her first book-length
work, Isis Unveiled, shook the rafters of science and religion, and the world hasn't been the same since. Many people reading
this will hold views that were first planted in the West by Blavatsky. Some of the views you hold were brought by her. She
also has an introductory book, Key to Theosophy, and an inspiration book, Voice of the Silence, for those few who are ready
to tread in the footsteps of advanced disciples - or at least for those who want their soul to hear the same call. We also
have introductory books recommended in the bookstore since her master work would be quite challenging for a newcommer to this
"Fundamentals of the Esoteric Philosophy" by Gottfried de Purucker. A series of lectures that
provides an excellent introduction to Theosophy. More
We also have many letters from the two teachers of Blavatsky that offer a very rare glimpse into what is effectively another
world. In that world a concern for humanity as a whole is the number one guiding principle in the foreground. In the background
is an understanding and command of the hidden laws of nature that is far beyond what is known to humanity in general today.
On this site we have her articles and we point to other sources online for all her major works. We also supply a search
engine for those articles. (Her entire works can be searched with a search engine on the CD.) Also on this site we feature
a talk-list that focuses on her teaching. Ages ago (in internet time) when this site first started, it aimed to show evidence
confirming the teaching she brought. There is a start made in that direction but there is far more confirmatory evidence than
has yet been assembled conveniently online.
Best wishes in exploring this site and pursuing the teachings of Theosophy.
It helps support this site when you partronize our bookstore. Thank you.
