Love Thy Neighbor


The Commandment of Jesus, is not Christian. It is pure Judaism, and then some. There were two rival sects of the Pharisee. One was very conservative, and the other, very liberal. Indeed, the later wanted to open Judaism up – to everyone! We are looking at the world’s first Democracy. To love your neighbor, is to love God. To love God, is to love your neighbor. God, and the people are one – WITH LOVE!

Rome had made slaves of most of the known world. There were thirty million slaves of all colors, who watched free Romans practice family values – with love! It was ruled Slaves were not capable of love, even if they were set free. Once a slave, always a slave.

Then the Redeemer Go-Ell came out of the wilderness, opened the Torah, and read about slaves being set free on the Jubilees. This is a Pharisee of God’s New Democracy, where all are created – EQUAL – with God and Neighbor, for you are one with God! No way would any Jew, or freed slave consider crucifying – this Savior! This lie was invented by Satan Paul, after the temple was lost, so he could take-over the Loving Bond of God!

And, this is my last broadcast from this blog, Royal Rosamond Press. I will give you a link t my other blog. Welcome to God’s Umbrella!

John ‘The Nazarite’

Matthew 22:36-40 King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

The War of Words – Is Over

I have run out of space for this blog. I do not have a hundred dollars to buy more space. I am going to try to get ‘Black Widow’ serialized so I can reach more people. However, with the start of the Holy Civil War Crusade, the people of the world are going to get a free front row seat – to utter madness! No explanation and deciphering will be needed. Utter chaos will rule supreme. One more post – for the road!

Evangelical President Declares War On Democrats

As I predicted, long ago, the Evangelical Right-wing Christian Rapture Cultists, finally elected a President who would be hostile towards the Democrats, the Free Press, the Arts. Bohemians, Gays, the Poor, and all non-White Races. The South has risen again!

Evangelical leaders have made a bond with Russian Christians in order to topple the Liberal Democratic hegemony. Wake up and read it for yourself! This is why I formed a fictional bond between British Intelligence officer, Victoria Mary Bond, and Miriam Starfish Christling whose father was a Russian Christian, and her mother a Evangelical End Time Survivalist whose father was killed by the FBI.

Jeff Sessions traveled to Russia with a Christian group, as did Franklin Graham. I suspect Mueller looked at this bond, and decided to – go round – because it would spark another Civil War. Trump already gave signals to armed Christian Militias. Nancy Pelosi is aware of the Doomsday Confederacy, and is why she is against IMPEACHMENT, because if Trump is backed up against the wall – they are backed up against THE WALL.

Lindsey Graham gave a bizzar speech yesterday aimed at the evils of Shariah Law. I suspect Graham, and the Haters For Jesus, are lining up Congresswoman IIhan Omar, as their poster womean with crosshairs. Graham was the firewall on sanity. He will be handing out hot rolls of quarters at the Christian Cavalcade of Hate. Nothing need be true anymore. Getting more suckers to play the Devil’s Pinball, is the name of the game come election time. The President of the United States – is Putin’s meme.

John Presco

Following a panel on We-Fi’s mission, Graham took the microphone and seemingly steered the conversation away from the day’s talking points to talk about a “radical ideology” that would cause war to break out, according to a recording provided to The Daily Beast. Asked about the comments Monday, Graham’s office said the senator was re to “radical Islam”.

At a gathering of some of the world’s most virulent opponents of LGBT equality, Russian conservative activist Dmitry Komov warned of the destructive agenda underlying the spread of liberal values.

The West, he told a far-right French TV station in December, was committed to the “destruction of all of our collective identities: national identity, religious identity, gender identity,” and warned it would result in  “the destruction of human identity.”

The close relationship between American evangelicals and Russia has lately been discussed widely in the news media. In particular, the Justice Department unsealed a criminal complaint in July against a Russian woman, Maria Butina, for trying to use the National Prayer Breakfast, a star-studded affair, as a “back channel of communication” with prominent American religious and political leaders.

Among them is Franklin Graham, son of the well-known evangelist, Billy Graham, and head of the influential Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

In 2015, Graham famously visited Russia, where he had a warm meeting with President Vladimir Putin. On that trip, Putin reportedly explained that his mother had kept her Christian faith even under communist rule. Graham in turn praised Putin for his support of Orthodox Christianity, contrasting Russia’s “positive changes” with the rise of atheistic secularism in the U.S.

But it was not always so. Once upon a time, American evangelicals saw the Soviet Union and other communist countries as the world’s greatest threat to their faith.

They carried out dramatic and illegal activities, smuggling Bibles and other Christian literature across borders. And yet, today, Russia is their crucial ally.

President Donald Trump went on a tear on Twitter Tuesday morning, demanding an apology from the New York Times, complaining he doesn’t get enough credit for the economy, claiming Twitter discriminates against him, and ripping into the “Radical Left Democrats.”

It was a dizzying burst from Trump, who has bounced from claiming victory after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to seeking revenge on the media, Democrats and even his own aides.

For what it’s worth, the Mueller report thoroughly absolves former Attorney General Jeff Sessions from accusations from the political Left, the Right, and a ranting President Trump.

The Left’s favorite meme at the beginning of Trump’s term was that Sessions had perjured himself regarding contacts with Russian officials. Mueller’s report refutes that. The Right said Sessions refused to properly investigate Hillary Clinton. The Mueller report and other documents show that he did order such an investigation, at the appropriate time, even while wisely shielding it from political interference.

In all, Trump tweeted or retweeted more than 50 times in a 24-hour period.

The media was the primary target of Trump’s ire Tuesday morning, as he complained that he is subjected to an unprecedented level of press scrutiny and lashed out at outlets from The New York Times to morning cable news shows while also taking shots at individual personalities.

“Paul Krugman, of the Fake News New York Times, has lost all credibility, as has the Times itself, with his false and highly inaccurate writings on me,” Trump wrote in his first post of the day, attacking the economic columnist who is often critical of the White House. “He is obsessed with hatred, just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is. He said Market would crash, Only Record Highs!”

In a second tweet, the president added: “I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election. But this one will have to be a far bigger & better apology. On this one they will have to get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness-they are truly the Enemy of the People!”

In a letter to readers following the 2016 election, then-publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and executive editor Dean Baquet wondered whether Trump’s “sheer unconventionality lead us and other news outlets to underestimate his support among American voters,” and pledged to rededicate itself to probing the driving forces of the election. But Trump has frequently claimed that the Times apologized to him for its coverage in the wake of his election, something the paper has repeatedly denied took place.

Trump then turned his fire more generally to the rest of the media, accusing “totally insane” Democrats of colluding with the press to hamper his presidency, although he offered no evidence of such a conspiracy.

Black Widow

Here are chapter-sketches for my Bond book that was titled ‘The Royal Janitor’ and is now titled ‘Black Widow’. I wanted to start out light because I have the tendency to go deep, into the dark, for all the pathos.

Black Widow is about two spies who form one of the most loving bonds known to humankind. They become best friends, and make a vow to get the truth.  Victoria Bond was born in London. Miriam Starfish Christling, was born in a hidden valley in Montana and grew up in Russia. When her parents died in a butane explosion, Starfish moved to the U.S. converted to Judaism, and was rejected when she tried to become a Rabbi. She was then recruited by British Intelligence after she beat the Russian chess champion.

Victoria Mary Bond is the alleged granddaughter of James Bond.

Stanley and Rose-Marie

My childhood sweetheart sent me a text today. She is struggling with a Evil Tooth. The sins we carry for the bad choices we made – make.

‘Spit all those evil teeth out of your mouth girl – before they kill you!”

The greatest pain, in Marilyn’s soul and being, was the death of her brother, Stanley. She loved her brother the way my sister loved me.  We were their ideal.

Above is a pic of M with her actress friends. She believes I went to her school when I was in the second grade. She told me she wanted to take me home and give me a bath.

I learned all there was to know about Pathos from my Loving M. If she was not I the world, I am not in the world.

I know she has something very mind-blowing to tell me, when she starts her story in the middle. She is dyslectic.  From the center, she heads for the beginning and end of the message – at the same time. This is her sneaky way of coming round to your blind spot, then delivering a blow, there, while she punches you in the gut. Knocks the crap – and all my teeth out of me – at the same time. I was screaming at her.

I do not want her to die.

John Gregory

In Rhetoric, Aristotle identifies three artistic modes of persuasion, one of which is “awakening emotion (pathos) in the audience so as to induce them to make the judgment desired.”[2] In the first chapter, he includes the way in which “men change their opinion in regard to their judgment. As such, emotions have specific causes and effects” (Book 2.1.2–3).[3] Aristotle identifies pathos as one of the three essential modes of proof by his statement that “to understand the emotions—that is, to name them and describe them, to know their causes and the way in which they are excited (1356a24–1356a25).[4] Aristotle posits that, alongside pathos, the speaker must also deploy good ethos in order to establish credibility (Book 2.1.5–9). [5]

Aristotle details what individual emotions are useful to a speaker (Book 2.2.27).[6] In doing so, Aristotle focused on whom, toward whom, and why, stating that “[i]t is not enough to know one or even two of these points; unless we know all three, we shall be unable to arouse anger in anyone. The same is true of the other emotions.” He also arranges the emotions with one another so that they may counteract one another. For example, one would pair sadness with happiness (Book 2.1.9).[7] With this understanding, Aristotle argues for the rhetor to understand the entire situation of goals and audiences to decide which specific emotion the speaker would exhibit or call upon in order to persuade the audience. Aristotle’s theory of pathos has three main foci: the frame of mind the audience is in, the variation of emotion between people, and the influence the rhetor has on the emotions of the audience. Aristotle classifies the third of this trio as the ultimate goal of pathos.[8] Similarly, Aristotle outlines the individual importance of persuasive emotions, as well as the combined effectiveness of these emotions on the audience. Moreover, Aristotle pointedly discusses pleasure and pain in relation to the reactions these two emotions cause in an audience member.[8] According to Aristotle, emotions vary from person to person. Therefore, he stresses the importance of understanding specific social situations in order to successfully utilize pathos as a mode of persuasion.[8]

Aristotle identifies the introduction and the conclusion as the two most important places for an emotional appeal in any persuasive argument.[9]

Rose-Marie and Gismonda

Last night, my dear friend, Marilyn Reed, told me her brother Stanley Godfroi, married Ruth Friml, whose grandfather was the Czech Composer, Rudolph Friml, who did the score for Rose-Marie. Ruthie’s sister, Diana, married the actor, John Lupton, who starred in the Bohemian movie ‘The Rebel Set’. When Stan died, John adopted Marilyn and his wife’s nephew. John Crawford was Rose-Marie in a silent movie made in 1928. Is it any wonder North Americans fell in love with her, for she is Bohemian Gypsy Girl, our Esmirelda. This is another installment of ‘The Joan Crawford Hour’.

The famous Czech Artist, Alphonse Mucha, did a postcard of Rudolph, that reads “Rudolph Friml The Bohemian Pianist.” I have not seen another male subject by Mucha whose work was embraced by the Hippies, and had an influence on Rosamond whose commercial career is very similar to Mucha was discovered when he did a poster of Sarah Benhardt who was in the play ‘Gismonde’ that is about the Duchess of the Dukes of Athens who just so happen to have owned the Shroud of Turin. The date suggests Gismonde might be based upon Marguerite de Chanrny, the granddaughter of Geodfrie de Charney, a Knight Templar who wrote books on chivalry. Marguerite was married to Humbert de Rougmont who is kin to may Knights Templar as I discovered.

The story of Gismund can be traced to the story of ‘Tancred and Gismund’ then “The Tale of Ghismonda and Guiscardo” which might have inspired ‘Romeo and Juliet’.  In Friml’s ‘Indian Love Song’ is Romeo calling to Juliet. Gismonda is formed from Sigismund.

What is truly astounding, is, I have been keeping an eye open for the source of Christine Rosamond’s paintings ‘Story Teller’. I could see the influence of Waterhouse in her work. This morning I found ‘The Decameron’ by Waterhouse.

Marilyn said she played Friml’s work on the piano. Is she had married me, her mother-in-law would have been, Rosemary Rosamond.

The heroine in ‘Rose-Maire’ is named ‘Marie de Flor’…flor is French for “flower”. de Flor sings Romeo and Juliet at the beginning of the movie. No one has connected Gismonde to this movie.  Perhaps Nisha could do a cello arrangement?

The main source of the play is “The Tale of Ghismonda and Guiscardo” from the first novella of Day Four of the Decameron. The tale was translated in William Painter‘s Palace of Pleasure (1566), but internal evidence indicates the authors worked from the original, and not Painter’s translation.[1] The play inspired at least five English tragedies by 1623, and in Elizabethan England was second only to Romeus and Juliet as a story of tragic love.

Act I starts in 1450 in Athens at the foot of the Acropolis.

In the opening act, we find Gismonda, the widow of the Duke of Athens, and the mother of his child, a five-year-old boy named Francesco. Gismonda is the ruling power of the duchy as regent for her son, an absolute monarch. She is surrounded by a flattering court, among whom is a Venetian, named Zaccaria Franco, who loved the Duchess before she married the Duke of Athens. He is seemingly one of her strongest supporters, but is actually trying to seize power for himself. Zaccaria is in league with the Turks, who support him in his plotting against the duchy. Gismonda’s young son Francesco, the heir to the duchy, stands between Zaccaria and his ambitions. So Zaccaria has conspired with an accomplice, Gregorez, to murder the boy.

The Decameron (From the Greek: δέκα – ten & μέρα – day) (Italian: Decameron [deˈkaːmeron; dekameˈrɔn; dekameˈron] or Decamerone [dekameˈroːne]), subtitled Prince Galehaut (Old Italian: Prencipe Galeotto [ˈprentʃipe ɡaleˈɔtto; ˈprɛntʃipe]), is a collection of novellas by the 14th-century Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio (1313–1375). The book is structured as a frame story containing 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men sheltering in a secluded villa just outside Florence to escape the Black Death, which was afflicting the city.

Sigmund and Siegmund are variants of Sigismund, a German given name meaning “protection through victory”, from Old High German sigu “victory” + munt “hand, protection”.

Charles Rudolf Friml[1] (December 7, 1879 – November 12, 1972) was a Czech-born composer of operettas, musicals, songs and piano pieces, as well as a pianist. After musical training and a brief performing career in his native Prague, Friml moved to the United States, where he became a composer. His best-known works are Rose-Marie and The Vagabond King, each of which enjoyed success on Broadway and in London and were adapted for film.

The Firefly and early operettas[edit]

One of the most popular theatrical forms in the early decades of the 20th century in America was the operetta, and its most famous composer was Irish-born Victor Herbert. It was announced in 1912 that operetta diva Emma Trentini would be starring in a new operetta on Broadway by Herbert with lyricist Otto Harbach entitled The Firefly. Shortly before the writing of the operetta, Trentini appeared in a special performance of Herbert’s Naughty Marietta conducted by Herbert himself. When Trentini refused to sing “Italian Street Song” for the encore, an enraged Herbert stormed out of the orchestra pit refusing any further work with Trentini.

Arthur Hammerstein, the operetta’s sponsor, frantically began to search for another composer. Not finding any other theatre composer who could compose as well as Herbert, Hammerstein settled on the almost unknown Friml because of his classical training. After a month of work, Friml produced the score for what would be his first theatrical success.[5] After tryouts in Syracuse, New York, The Firefly opened at the Lyric Theatre on December 2, 1912 to a warm reception by both the audience and the critics. The production moved to the Casino Theatre after Christmas, where it ran until March 15, 1913, for a total of 120 performances. After The Firefly, Friml produced three more operettas that each had longer runs than The Firefly, although they are not as enduringly successful.[6] These were High Jinks (1913), Katinka (1915) and You’re in Love (1917). He also contributed songs to a musical in 1915 entitled The Peasant Girl.

Trentini was named as a co-respondent in Friml’s divorce from his first wife in 1915, and evidence was introduced that they were having an affair.[1] Another show, Sometime, written with Rida Johnson Young and starring Ed Wynn and Mae West, ran well on Broadway in 1918–1919.[7]

Friml’s greatest successes[edit]

Friml wrote his most famous operettas in the 1920s. In 1924, he wrote Rose-Marie. This operetta, on which Friml collaborated with lyricists Oscar Hammerstein II and Otto Harbach and co-composer Herbert Stothart, was a hit worldwide, and a few of the songs from it also became hits including “The Mounties” and “Indian Love Call“. The use of murder as part of the plot was ground-breaking among operettas and musical theatre pieces at the time.

After Rose-Marie’s success came two other hit operettas, The Vagabond King in 1925, with lyrics by Brian Hooker and William H. Post, and The Three Musketeers in 1928, with lyrics by P. G. Wodehouse and Clifford Grey, based on Alexandre Dumas‘s famous swashbuckling novel. In addition, Friml contributed to the Ziegfeld Follies of 1921 and 1923.

Friml wrote music for many films during the 1930s, often songs adapted from previous work. The Vagabond King, Rose-Marie and The Firefly were all made into films and included at least some of Friml’s music. Oddly enough, his operetta version of The Three Musketeers was never filmed, despite the fact that the novel itself has been filmed many times. In 1930, he wrote a new operetta score for film, The Lottery Bride. Like his contemporary, Ivor Novello, Friml was sometimes ridiculed for the sentimental and insubstantial nature of his compositions and was often called trite. Friml was also criticized for the old-fashioned, Old World sentiments found in his works. Friml’s last stage musical was Music Hath Charms in 1934. During the 1930s, Friml’s music fell out of fashion on Broadway and in Hollywood.[8]

Later years and legacy[edit]

Rather than trying to adapt to popular taste, Friml decided to focus on playing the piano in concert and composing art music, which he did into his nineties.[8] He also composed the music for the 1947 film Northwest Outpost, starring Nelson Eddy and Ilona Massey.[citation needed] A few of Friml’s works have seen revivals on Broadway; these include a 1943 production of The Vagabond King and a 1984 production of The Three Musketeers. “The Donkey Serenade” from the film version of The Firefly, “The Mounties” and “Indian Love Call” are still frequently heard, often in romantic parody or comic situations. His piano music is also often performed.

In a November 1939 issue of Time magazine, Friml claimed that Victor Herbert communicated to him through a Ouija board. He said that Herbert told him, “Play five notes.” After he played them he said Herbert responded, “Quite charming.”[9] In 1967, Friml performed in a special concert at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco. As he often did in his concerts, he began the concert with a piano improvisation, then played special arrangements of his own compositions as well as composers who had influenced him. He even played Dvořák’s Humoresque as a special tribute to his teacher. He also appeared on Lawrence Welk‘s television program in 1971.Template:Http:// He was one of the original inductees into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.[8]

His two sons also worked as musicians. Rudolf Jr. was a big band leader in the 1930s and 1940s, and William, a son from Friml’s third marriage, was a composer and arranger in Hollywood. In 1969, Friml was celebrated by Ogden Nash on the occasion of his 90th birthday in a couplet which ended: “I trust your conclusion and mine are similar: ‘Twould be a happier world if it were Frimler.” Similarly, satiric songwriter Tom Lehrer made a reference to Friml on his first album, Songs by Tom Lehrer (1953). The song “The Wiener Schnitzel Waltz” includes the lyric, “Your lips were like wine (if you’ll pardon the simile) / The music was lovely, and quite Rudolf Friml-y.” Near the end of the 1957 musical The Music Man, Harold Hill lies to Marian Paroo: “I’m expecting a telegram from Rudy Friml, and this could be it.”[10]

Friml died in Los Angeles in 1972 and was interred in the “Court of Honor” at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. On August 18, 2007, a death notice in the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Kay Wong Ling Friml (born March 16, 1913), Friml’s last wife, died on August 9, 2007 and would be buried with him in Forest Lawn

The Vagabond King is a 1925 operetta by Rudolf Friml in four acts, with a book and lyrics by Brian Hooker and William H. Post, based upon Justin Huntly McCarthy‘s 1901 romantic novel and play If I Were King. The story is a fictionalized episode in the life of the 15th-century poet and thief François Villon, centering on his wooing of Katherine De Vaucelles (the cousin of King Louis XI), and relating how he becomes “king for a day” and defends France against the invading forces of the Duke of Burgundy.

The original production opened on Broadway in 1925, starring Dennis King and ran for 511 performances. The operetta then played in London, toured extensively and enjoyed revivals and two film adaptations, including one with King and Jeanette MacDonald.

The Three Musketeers is a musical with a book by William Anthony McGuire, lyrics by Clifford Grey and P. G. Wodehouse, and music by Rudolf Friml. It is based on the classic 1844 novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. Set in France and England in 1626, it recounts the adventures of a young man named d’Artagnan after he leaves home to become a Musketeer of the Guard. The three men of the title are his friends Athos, Porthos and Aramis.

The original 1928 production on Broadway, and a 1930 West End run, both starring Dennis King as d’Artagnan, were successful, but a 1984 attempt at a much-revised Broadway revival flopped.

Mucha moved to Paris in 1887, and continued his studies at Académie Julian and Académie Colarossi. In addition to his studies, he worked at producing magazine and advertising illustrations. About Christmas 1894, Mucha happened to go into a print shop where there was a sudden and unexpected need for a new advertising poster for a play featuring Sarah Bernhardt, the most famous actress in Paris, at the Théâtre de la Renaissance on the Boulevard Saint-Martin. Mucha volunteered to produce a lithographed poster within two weeks, and on 1 January 1895, the advertisement for the play Gismonda by Victorien Sardou was posted in the city, where it attracted much attention.[5]

Rose-Marie is an operetta-style musical with music by Rudolf Friml and Herbert Stothart, and book and lyrics by Otto Harbach and Oscar Hammerstein II. The story takes place in the Canadian Rockies and concerns Rose-Marie La Flemme, a French Canadian girl who loves miner Jim Kenyon. When Jim falls under suspicion for murder, her brother Emile plans for Rose-Marie to marry Edward Hawley, a city man.

The work premiered on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre on September 2, 1924, running for 557 performances. It was the longest-running Broadway musical of the 1920s until it was surpassed by The Student Prince (1926).[1] It was then produced at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in London in 1925, enjoying another extraordinary run of 581 performances. It was filmed in 1928, in 1936 and again in 1954.

The best-known song from the musical is “Indian Love Call“. It became Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy‘s “signature song“. Several other numbers have also become standards, including the title song.


Producer Arthur Hammerstein, attempting to create popular new Broadway shows in the operetta tradition, sought exotic, unusual settings for his new productions. The Fortune Teller (1898) is set in Hungary, The Merry Widow (1907) takes place in France, and Naughty Marietta (1910) features New Orleans.[2] He sent his nephew, Oscar Hammerstein II, and Otto Harbach to Quebec, Canada, to witness a rumored magnificent ice sculpture festival. The men reported that there was not, nor had there ever been, such a festival in Quebec or any part of Canada.[3]

Arthur Hammerstein still liked the Canadian setting, and Oscar Hammerstein II and Harbach began work on the book for a new musical set in the Canadian Rockies. Rudolf Friml and Herbert Stothart collaborated on the score, and opera star Mary Ellis was cast in the title role.[4] British actor and singer Dennis King was cast opposite her as Jim Kenyon.[2]

Productions and Adaptations[edit]

Stage versions

Rose-Marie premiered on September 2, 1924 at the Imperial Theatre in New York City, running for 557 performances. Direction was by Paul Dickey and choreography was by Dave Bennett. The orchestrations were by Robert Russell Bennett. Costumes were designed by Charles LeMaire, and settings were by Gates and Morange.[2] It had a brief revival on Broadway in 1927.[5]

It was then produced at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in London in 1925, enjoying another extraordinary run of 581 performances. The original West End production had a chorus of eighty. It was London’s most successful Broadway show after World War I until it was surpassed by Oklahoma!. In Paris, Rose-Marie ran for an unprecedented 1,250 performances.[4]

A touring company premiered the work in Canada on January 12, 1925 at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto, and the piece toured Australia and played in Paris.[6] Other Canadian productions were given by the Variétés lyriques in 1937 and another in 1945, in French, and by Theatre Under the Stars in 1940, Melody Fair in 1951, and the Eaton Operatic Society in 1959. In recent decades, it has been produced by the Light Opera of Manhattan several times in the 1970s and 1980s, the Shaw Festival in Canada (1981), Light Opera Works of Illinois (1987), and Ohio Light Opera in 2003.

Film versions
Main article: Rose Marie (film)

The show has been filmed three times, including a silent film in 1928. Joan Crawford starred in this version, alongside James Murray. The best known film version was released in 1936, starring Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. Although the plot was changed, and most of the songs were dropped, it was a huge success and became MacDonald and Eddy’s best-known film. In 1954, MGM produced an Eastmancolor version in Cinemascope, which more closely followed the original plot, but it still dropped most of Friml’s songs. This version starred Ann Blyth, Howard Keel and Fernando Lamas, with Bert Lahr and Marjorie Main as comic relief. It was choreographed by Busby Berkeley.

Little Mary Sunshine

Rose-Marie is the main (but not the only) target of the satirical musical Little Mary Sunshine, which parodies elements of the plot as well as the style of several of the songs. In particular, the song “Colorado Love Call” from Little Mary Sunshine is a parody of “Indian Love Call” from Rose-Marie.[7]


Act I

In Fond-du-Lac, Saskatchewan, Canada, trappers, hunters and travellers gather at “Lady” Jane’s hotel (“Vive la Canadienne”). Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Malone is flirting with Lady Jane, while wealthy city man Edward Hawley is watching a French Canadian girl, Rose-Marie La Flamme, even though she’s miner Jim Kenyon’s sweetheart. Rose-Marie’s brother, Emile, is searching for her, fearing she is alone with Jim. Wanda, a half-blooded Indian, dances close to Hawley, enraging her Indian lover, Black Eagle. Lady Jane’s man, the cowardly “Hard-Boiled Herman”, arrives at the bar. Jim arrives to greet Rose-Marie enthusiastically and explains to Sergeant Malone that he has given up his former wild ways because of his love for “Rose-Marie”. Black Eagle claims some land (and the gold on it) belonging to Jim and Herman. Herman thinks that shooting Black Eagle will solve everything, but Jim prefers to use legal means, declaring that he will visit Black Eagle and show him the boundary line the property map. Sergent Malone and “The Mounties” warn Herman that they will not hesitate to enforce the laws.

Emile is going to take Rose-Marie with him to the trapping grounds at Kootenay Pass. He dislikes Jim and wants her to marry Hawley for financial security. Rose-Marie doesn’t want to go, insisting to her brother that she is in love with Jim (“Lak Jeem”). Hawley plans to accompany Emile, but first he has to end his affair with Wanda. He plans to visit her at Black Eagle’s log cabin and bribe her to stay away from him. Jim tells Rose-Marie that he will follow her to Kootenay Pass, and they will meet in an old house he calls a castle near a valley with a beautiful echo. According to legend, Indians would call down into the valley to the girls they wished to marry (“Indian Love Call”).

Hawley meets Wanda at her cabin and tries to pay her off, just as Jim arrives with a map to prove his claim. Wanda sends Jim away. Black Eagle returns home and catches Wanda and Hawley embracing. He attacks Hawley, and Wanda stabs Black Eagle to save Hawley. Jim and Herman, unaware of the murder, follow Emile, Hawley, and Rose-Marie to Kootenay Pass. Jim and Rose-Marie communicate through their “Indian Love Call” (reprise). Emile tells Rose-Marie that she should marry Hawley because he could buy her all the “Pretty Things” she wants. Wanda arrives at Kootenay Pass and tells everyone that Jim is wanted for the murder of Black Eagle; his map was discovered near Black Eagle’s body.

Herman continues romancing Lady Jane (“Why Shouldn’t We?”). Hawley proposes to Rose-Marie, but she refuses him. He and a city girl whom he has employed, Ethel Brander, try to impress Rose-Marie with the glamour of city life in Quebec. Wanda leads an Indian “Totem-Tom-Tom” dance. Jim has received an offer from the Brazilian government to lead a mining project there. He asks Rose-Marie to come with him, even though it would be safer for her to go to Quebec and wait for him there. If she decides to come, they will meet at the “castle” and go to the United States to be married. If she does not, she should sing the Indian Love Call up the valley to him. Rose-Marie insists she will go with him; he leaves immediately, and she plans to follow twenty minutes later to avoid attracting suspicion. Sergeant Malone arrives with a warrant to arrest Jim for murder. Emile knows that Jim is hiding in the “castle”. He tells Rose-Marie that he will not reveal Jim’s hiding place to the Mounties if she will go to Quebec and marry Hawley. Holding back tears, Rose-Marie tells Hawley that she must sing the “Indian Love Call” to him, but she is really singing to Jim, telling him that she will not go with him.

Act II

Many months have passed. Rose-Marie is about to marry Hawley in Quebec, believing that Jim was the killer. Ethel Brander has convinced her that Jim murdered Hawley because he loved Wanda. Herman and Lady Jane have married, and they have a shop in Quebec. He still flirts with other women, but he catches her giving Sergeant Malone “Only a Kiss”. Jim returns with Wanda intending for her to clear his name. But, seeing Wanda, Rose-Marie jumps to conclusions about Jim and Wanda. Rose-Marie tells Jim that she loves Hawley (“I Love Him”).

The wedding preparations commence (“The Minuet of the Minute”), and Wanda jealously threatens Hawley. Sergeant Malone prepares to arrest Jim, who is hiding in Kootenay Pass, even though Malone is troubled by the evidence. Herman suspects Wanda and gets her to confess by pretending that Hawley has accused her of the murder. Jane interrupts them and incorrectly assumes Herman is cheating on her (“One Man Woman”). The wedding begins (“Doorway of My Dreams”), but as Rose-Marie walks down the aisle, Wanda publicly confesses to the murder and declares her love for Hawley. Everyone rushes to Jim’s lodgings, and Rose-Marie goes to the pass to return Jim’s “Indian Love Call”. The lovers are finally united.

That is the first novel of the fourth day of the Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio . Il re Filostrato sceglie un tema cupo, ben più di quanto non siano stati quelli precedenti, come annota Fiammetta, la prima narratrice. King Filostrato choose a dark theme, much more than they were the previous ones, as noted Fiammetta, the first narrator. Si parlerà infatti di amori dall’esito tragico , in perfetta coerenza con il nome stesso di Filostrato, cioè “vinto d’amore”. It discusses it loves tragic outcome, in perfect keeping with the name of Philostratus, that “won love.” Anche la scelta del nome Fiammetta è significativo: nelle altre opere di Boccaccio, in particolare nell’ Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta , il

Tancred and Gismund (Gismond variant spelling) is an English Elizabethan play published in 1591. It is a revised version of Gismund of Salerne, a play that was written and produced for the queen in 1566 by the gentlemen of the Inner Temple. The earliest extant English play derived from an Italian novel, each act of the five acts was produced by a different author.

The play tells the story of a father, Tancred, whose widowed daughter, Gismund, returns home and begins a clandestine affair with one of her father’s courtiers. He kills her lover and presents her with a gold cup containing his heart. She kills herself, and her father, stricken by grief and regret, does likewise, thereby extinguishing his kingly line.

The play has been seen as an admonition to Queen Elizabeth to choose a husband that she might bear an heir, based on suitability instead of love.


  • Tancred – King of Naples and Prince of Salerne

  • Gismund – widow, daughter of Tancred

  • Guiszard – County Palurin, Gismund’s lover

  • JulioLord Chamberlain to Tancred

  • Lucrece – sister to Tancred

  • Renuchio – Captain of Tancred’s guard

  • Cupid – God of love

  • Megaera – a fury

  • Chorus of four maidens

  • Guard

  • Two furies


Tancred gave his only daughter Gismund, to a foreign prince in marriage. After the death of her husband she returns home to her father, who had missed her so much during her marriage that he is determined that she never again marry. She falls in love with the Guiszard, Count Palurin, one of her father’s courtiers, and he with her. She is able to meet with her lover by means of a secret cave under her bedroom, passing him the time of their meetings by concealing a letter in a cane. She meets her lover in the vault one day and while she is out her father comes looking for her. Thinking she has taken a walk, he lies on her bed, covers his head with a curtain and falls asleep. The lovers return and Tancred wakes and witnesses her daughter give herself to Guiszard. Stunned, he says nothing but has Guiszard arrested and his heart cut out and placed in a golden cup, which is then delivered to Gismund. She fills the cup with tears and poison and drinks it. Too late, her father comes in. He grants her dying wish that she be entombed with her lover. Tancred fulfills his pledge and then kills himself as a warning to all hard-hearted fathers.


The main source of the play is “The Tale of Ghismonda and Guiscardo” from the first novella of Day Four of the Decameron. The tale was translated in William Painter‘s Palace of Pleasure (1566), but internal evidence indicates the authors worked from the original, and not Painter’s translation.[1] The play inspired at least five English tragedies by 1623, and in Elizabethan England was second only to Romeus and Juliet as a story of tragic love.[2]

Date and text[edit]

The published play is a rewritten version of Gismund of Salerne, of which two manuscript copies survive, which was written and produced by five members of the Inner Temple for Queen Elizabeth.[3] Each act was written by a different author, names respectively as Rod. Stafford, Hen. Noel, G. Al., Ch. Hatton, and Robert Wilmot. The play was revised in keeping with “the decorum of these daies” by recasting the original rhyming lines into blank verse.[4]

Earlier critics dated the original play 1567-8 by taking Wilmot’s prefatory reference to his fellow Inner Temple collaborators to “the loue that hath bin these 24 yeres betwixt vs” and working back from the publication date. Chambers dates the play earlier to Shrovetide, between 24 and 26 February 1566 from an allusion in the manuscript to its performance at Greenwich and matching that to Elizabeth’s itinerary.[5]

This article contains summaries and commentaries of the 100 stories within Giovanni Boccaccio‘s The Decameron.

Each story of the Decameron begins with a short heading explaining the plot of the story. The 1903 J. M. Rigg English translation headings are used in many of these summaries. Commentary on the tale itself follows.

Tancredi, Prince of Salerno and father of Ghismonda, slays his daughter’s lover, Guiscardo, and sends her his heart in a golden cup: Ghismonda, the daughter, pours upon it a poisonous distillation, which she drinks and dies.

Fiammetta narrates this tale, whose earliest source is a French manuscript written by a man named Thomas. However, it is referred to in the early 12th century of Tristan and Iseult.,212303931,var,A-MUCHA–RUDOLF-FRIML-The-BOHEMIAN-PIANIST,language,E.html


Pioneering Czechoslovakian artist Alphonse Mucha (1860 – 1939) created a sumptuous Art Nouveau style filled with soft colors, curving lines and ethereal women. Mucha was inspired to paint by the artwork he saw in churches. A starving artist in Paris, Mucha skyrocketed to fame after he created a life size poster for Sarah Bernhardt’s play, “Gismonda.” The poster, which differed from current artistic trends, made him a household name and earned him a six-year contract from Bernhardt. In the 1960’s, Mucha’s style was revived, especially in psychedelic posters.

The first duke of Athens (as well as of Thebes, at first) was Otto de la Roche, a minor Burgundian knight of the Fourth Crusade. Although he was known as the “Duke of Athens” from the foundation of the duchy in 1205, the title did not become official until 1260. Instead, Otto proclaimed himself “Lord of Athens” (in Latin Dominus Athenarum, in French Sire d’Athenes). The local Greeks called the dukes “Megas Kyris” (Greek: Μέγας Κύρης, “Great Lord”), from which the shortened form “Megaskyr”, often used even by the Franks to refer to the Duke of Athens, is derived.

From 1395 to 1402 the Venetians briefly controlled the Duchy. In 1444 Athens became a tributary of Constantine Palaeologus, the despot of Morea and heir to the Byzantine throne. In 1456, after the Fall of Constantinople (1453) to the Ottoman Empire, Turahanoğlu Ömer Bey conquered the remnants of the Duchy. Despite the Ottoman conquest, the title of “Duke of Athens and Neopatras” continued in use by the kings of Aragon, and through them by the Kings of Spain, up to the present day.

The 14th century attribution of the origin of the shroud refers to a shroud in Lirey, France dating to 1353-1357. It is related that the widow of the French knight Geoffroi de Charny (said to be a descendant of Templar Geoffroy de Charney who was burned at the stake with Jacques de Molay) had it displayed in a church at Lirey, France (diocese of Troyes).[31] According to the 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia :

On 20 June 1353, Geoffroy de Charny, Lord of Savoisy and Lirey, founded at Lirey in honour of the Annunciation a collegiate church with six canonries, and in this church he exposed for veneration the Holy Winding Sheet. Opposition arose on the part of the Bishop of Troyes, who declared after due inquiry that the relic was nothing but a painting, and opposed its exposition. Clement VI by four Bulls, 6 Jan., 1390, approved the exposition as lawful. In 1418 during the civil wars, the canons entrusted the Winding Sheet to Humbert, Count de La Roche, Lord of Lirey. Margaret, widow of Humbert, never returned it but gave it in 1452 to the Duke of Savoy. The requests of the canons of Lirey were unavailing, and the Lirey Winding Sheet is the same that is now exposed and honoured at Turin.”[32]


In 1418, Humbert of Villersexel, Count de la Roche, Lord of Saint-Hippolyte-sur-Doubs, moved the shroud to his castle at Montfort, Doubs, to provide protection against criminal bands, after he married Charny’s granddaughter Margaret. It was later moved to Saint-Hippolyte-sur-Doubs. After Humbert’s death, canons of Lirey fought through the courts to force the widow to return the cloth, but the parliament of Dole and the Court of Besançon left it to the widow, who traveled with the shroud to various expositions, notably in Liège and Geneva.

The widow sold the shroud in exchange for a castle in Varambon, France in 1453. The new owner, Anne of Cyprus, Duchess of Savoy, stored it in the Savoyard capital of Chambéry in the newly built Saint-Chapelle, which Pope Paul II shortly thereafter raised to the dignity of a collegiate church. In 1464, Anne’s husband, Louis, Duke of Savoy agreed to pay an annual fee to the Lirey canons in exchange for their dropping claims of ownership of the cloth. Beginning in 1471, the shroud was moved between many cities of Europe, being housed briefly in Vercelli, Turin, Ivrea, Susa, Chambéry, Avigliana, Rivoli, and Pinerolo. A description of the cloth by two sacristans of the Sainte-Chapelle from around this time noted that it was stored in a reliquary: “enveloped in a red silk drape, and kept in a case covered with crimson velours, decorated with silver-gilt nails, and locked with a golden key.”

Humbert de Villersexel is Humbert de Rougemont.

“1208 – Pons de la Roche presents to Amadeus de Tramelay, Archbishop
of Besançon, the Shroud that his son Othon de la Roche, Latin Duke
of Athens, had sent him from Constantinople.”

Aymon 2 de Rougemont was the Seigneur of Villersexel. He married
Guillemette de Ray, the daughter of Othon 2 de la Roche.

Othon 1 de la Roche (-before 1161) had a son named Pons de la Roche
the Seigneur de Ray. He first married Marguerite Tilchatel who may
be a Rougemont who came to own Til-Chatel. Guillaume, Gui, Humbert4,
Gui 2, and Thibaut 6 were Seigneurs of Til-Chatel. Othon then
married Pontia de Rougemont/de Dramelay the daughter of Thiebaud 2
de Rougemont. They has three children. Humbert, Thiebaud, and
Sibylle de la Roche. This union makes the Shroud the Rougemont
family icon, or relic.

The Ian Fleming and Getty Connection

Garth, and the world famous artist, Christine Rosamond Benton, were friends of Gordon Getty. I am certain Caspar Fleming was named after his uncle, Caspar John, the Sea Lord. Ian’s son got into drugs, and died. He was rescued at sea with a helicopter, as my sister was. Christine died on her first sober birthday in the ambulance.

The Getty family was overwhelmed with drug addiction and tragedy. My thirty-two years of sobriety can be a lifesaver for generations to come, because the disease of alcoholism is passed down in our DNA. This is why I am overcome with joy my daughter, Heather Hanson, has cleaned her life up. Her amazing blue eyes have never been bluer.

“The next year Caspar came into his inheritance, which included Goldeneye, Ian’s Jamaican house. Making a visit for the first time since 1960, he encountered a side of his father’s life he had never fully known. It proved too much. After a week he took overdose swam out to sea. It was Blanche Blackwell, his father’s mistress, who called the helicopter that transported Caspar to a hospital in Kingston, saving his life.”

Then there is the ongoing problem with owning Celebrity Status and being Stalked.

In looking at the videos I made of Kim Hafner, she accuses me of using Christine’s biography to seduce – other female neighbors – as it was used to seduce her. Along with the claims I make in this blog, and using her as a model for Kimbo in my Columbo revival, she wanted to believe I wanted to have sex with her, marry her, and live happily ever after. To reinforce this sickening idea, she shared Christine’s biography with family and neighbors when I asked her not too. All of a sudden, it is not about US! This parasite inserted herself between my famous sister and I. Al of a sudden – she is somebody – the object of Rosamond’s bother’s insane desires. To attack anyone with so much sobriety, in order to destroy all attributes, is stalking. To employ Alley Valkyrie to vicariously help her, is stalking – and Gaslighting!

In my conversation with my niece, Shannon, she told me Stacey Pierrot consumed, and assumed Christine’s identity, after stabbing her in the back. Pierrot gave no accounting as ordered by the court, and went after my seventeen year old daughter, employing a ghost writer who promised this Stage Mother our daughter would be a star. Tom Snyder promised they would be in HIS STORY. He never met Christine – or I. Tom basked in all the attention he got. He got real close to our secrets, that he got to share with the world.

What I have been trying to do is get our Creative and Bohemian History under one roof, and One Brand, so we will not be picked off, and subjected to attacks on our core identities. We are all spiritual beings. What I have captured on video is a real attack by outside parasites, who render their targets, soulless and demonic, before they shred and demonize them. Attacks on ones spiritual being, leads to abuse of alcohol and drugs. Identity Crisis’s abound. At the check-out in all major stores, the commoners read fake stories of our made-up Identity Crises’.

The President of the United States was, and still is, the Ringmaster of Fakeness! His tweets, is yellow journalism. He employed his buddy who owns the National Enquirer, to  CAPTURE the testimony of beautiful women and models, who claim they were abused by this megalomaniac.

Putin and his Trolls PREYED upon our National Identity Crisis that includes millions of Evangelicals who have latched on to the Beautiful Jesus, in a sick political manner, where one gets to VOTE the Son of God – King of America and the World! Ugly nobodies are told they are better than Hollywood Fakes, writers, and artists, and the press. The list is growing. I’m sure good-looking and handsome people are ruled the most demonic, because it is said Satan was a good looking smooth-talker like Trump King of Celebrities!

Real Anti-Intellectualism has taken over the Republican Party founded by my kindred who had a Salon in San Francisco where came world famous writers. I have traced the English Renaissance to Thomas Wilson and Erasmus, who founded the Dutch Renaissance.  This is the Webb-Shakespeare line that came to America with the Puritans, and the Massetuchets Bay Colony. These are our Founding Fathers. I need a Grant and Helpers to put all my amazing discoveries under one umbrella of protection. They Getty Foundation would do well to bring me under such an umbrella, because I am being attacked by the Persona of Ignorance!

To see Barbara Broccoli broadcast the identity crisis the new Bond movie is undergoing, is sickening, because, she and a few want to come away with ‘A Cool Billon’  which should be the title of her Roulette Game. Line up Ten Sevens, and THEY win the jackpot. She and her company have come to control the Bond legacy. I had to submit my name as a writer of a Bond novel. The copyright is ambiguous. They don’t want to come after me because they would give me a soap box and a spotlight.

If they have looked at this blog, then they know I am an authentic Champion of the Arts! I am giving my dialogue away, for free, which fits with a real Bohemian philosophy. Plus, I want Victoria Bond to help defeat Putin’s Trolls. I want Victoria to shatter the poker hand Putin has been dealt, over and over. By whom, is the core of the Mueller Report. Several evangelical groups invited Putin to intercede.

I just did my final editing. Twenty minutes ago I saw this item in the news

“It’s not exactly news that CEO’s of large companies get paid quite well. Bob Iger, as the Chief Executive Officer of the Walt Disney Company gets paid more than most. In fact his total compensation in 2018 was around $65 million. One member of the Disney family finds that amount “insane.”

The rich getting to rich is destroying our Western Culture that knows it is on a Collison course with Poor Islam. They may never look at my script, because I can’t be trusted to keep my mouth shut, and keep making them more money! There is a formula for the big fish eating the little fish – that works! The problem is, writer-words that are squeezed thru the narrow opening of making money, are getting more and more dehumanized. The movie goer with the lowest I.Q. can read the Money Script, between the lines.

“I’ve seen this trick before.  It should get them a placement of the third grossing movie of the week. I feel privileged to contribute my $7:50 to the filthy rich moguls. But, there’s a cartoonish feel to the characters. It’s like they were gutted and filled with cream-puff pies. They have sold their soul to the devil, and there is no loyalty to self. The conformity they had to go trough to get a pay check, is leaving a mark on my precious viewing enjoyment. I mean, I’m actually here to watch a move!”

Trump is so much into this Money Trickery and Fakery that he is just realizing – he really is the President of the United States! For making him aware, our President is lashing out at everyone that comes near.  All our American traditions are evaporating with each tweet. Christians don’t go to church, they go to a polling place to vote everything that looks like the Democrats – out of existence! Putin, the billionaire, is – creaming his pants! The truth that Jesus was a poor prophet for the poor, is being deported with humble brown folks.

If Hitler came back, I see him taking off his hat and scratching his head.

“Huh! What the fuck is going on!”

I have done well to keep up with the changing ……………whatever! If Congress does manage to get Trump’s tax returns it’s going to look like this.

What all this Bond, talk, does not want to talk about, is, will Russia be Bond’s No.1 Enemy? There are millions at stake – already! Some producers fear Putin will hack their movie. I wonder if Putin money found its way to – my enemies! I attack Putin almost every day! When money is not at stake, and true art is funded properly, then Creative People are free to express themselves without worrying about retaliation. During both world wars, propaganda movies were made to help defeat our enemy. This was very affective. Why hasn’t our President launched a propaganda campaign against his buddy, Putin, who he wanted-wants to make money with. Bond loved to be seen in a Casino, playing cards! Trump owned Casinos that failed.

I told Cees Roozemond, Lara’s father that I am not after his daughter’s pretty face, but her beautiful soul and heart, because she is a poet. I did not add the name Roozemond is a form of Rosamond, which means ‘Rose of the World’. A cult arose from the visions of Daniil Andreyev. I believe I have been hacked by Russians who leave me alone because they want to read my ongoing hit of ‘The Rose of World’ that threatened to become the State religion.

Guilt is a chink in the armor, in which the good and the evil may pass. When you sit at a table and are dealt a hand of cards, you have agreed to be a winner, or, a loser. You can be both, if you fold a winning hand. Twice I played chess with an armed man who was threatening a friend. I made sure I gave him a good game, so much so, he did not notice I made an intentional blunder. It was a faked checkmate. This is why people become spies.

I suspect the Knights Templar got into chess when they negotiated with Islamic lovers of this game, for the release of hostages. The same reasoning applies……. give the Caliph a good game, lose, and, feeling good, he hands over the prisoner – for free! You are not taken prisoner. Everybody walks away – feeling good!

Liz Taylor’s uncle played poker with General Eisenhower and Montgomery during the war, and after. I suspect they played for the art the Nazi generals looted. When I saw our President pass the soccer ball Putin gave him, to his son, after he agreed to handover an American citizen Putin wanted to put on trial, I was aghast! I think Trump is afraid to play poker and chess, because his father gave him everything without even playing a game of Jacks, or, marbles, or, whatever! He hates to be a loser. Why he thought being President offered a sanctuary for people afraid of losing – IS THE QUESTION!

The only answer can be Trump aspired to be a Strong Man Mafia type like Putin, and he deduced, correctly, that half of our nation wanted a guy like Putin. The CHANCE to be a winner, by being on the winning side, is a chance worth taking for ten of millions of Christians, who are happy with the guarantee, brown people will be shut out, and hauled out of the Trump Tower of High Stakes Power!

Gambling for art booty is a great traditional thrill. To the victor goes the spoils. They threw dice for Jesus’ robe. You got to know something! Donald doesn’t know – shit! Human beings actually learn something when they lose. Duh! This is why our President is a Serial Liar. Putin, and befuddle Russian Intelligence are studying this behavior, not of Trump, but his million cult followers are happy he is fishing for just the right lie – that fools who?

I asked Cees if he would suggest to his daughter to read ‘The Art of Rhetoric’ by Thomas Wilson. You got to learn the rules – to something! People can sense you are knowledgeable – or not! Putin doesn’t even have to use Sense No.1, because he can smell a sucker a mile away! The Mueller Report is a failure because 100,000,000 million American hostages – were not released from captivity. No one was! Putin won every hand, every game. Mueller was terrified to add up the score, so he passed the chalk to Barr, who lost it – in public. Putin laughed his ass off!

Do you see how I used rhetoric in that last paragraph? Imagine me delivering this speech in public as I pace back and forth – with a piece of white chalk in my hand.

“Why the chalk?” my peers ask.

At the far end of the hall is a giant chalk board – that I do not need to get near to make my point.

“Our President, ladies and gentleman…………is worthless! Why bother wasting any chalk on that – BAFFOON!”  (a rhetorical question) I toss the chalk on the floor, and it breaks in half. Everyone gets it.

Several of the Elizabethan Actors were highly trained in law. Some of them were Spies for the Queen. Note me tweaking my mustache in the photo above. I have played the Fool to save lives!

“To be! Or not to be!”

“Are you in, or, are you out!”

Twice I had a gun put to my head. I heard the click of the trigger. I told one bad dude;

“Looks like you’re not the man for the job!”

To pick up the gun. Or, not pick up the gun? That is the question!”

Actors and Artists need feedback. When I heard Lara utter the first word, with that sincere tone, I am sold. It is so quiet and soft. It takes you to her ground, her territory. This is above the idea of acting. It is utterly sincere. I attached my very deeps feelings to her voice. I went on her journey. I got a message on gun violence the likes I have never heard. Lara resigns herself to the power of gun violence. There is no pro or con argument. A gun is placed near her, and she is abused by it. This is a rape. Alas she runs away, but is not free of the power it still holds over and her fellow human beings.

I believe Lara could do a show where she puts music to her rhetorical and poetical quest to change the world. We don’t need to be entertained, or, educated. Why spend another penny on loud productions and fanfares. What do we need? Let’s get down to it. But, suddenly Lara is folding up the music sheets, and, she reaches over and turns off the light, not caring to arrive at reason and rhyme, when it appears, only she cares. Click! She’s done her part. Genius! I wish I could help stage this.

When the light is clicked off, the whole theatre goes dark. There is real fear. What is going to happen? What is going to be said. There is the sound of your heart beating, with nervous coughs. There’s not going to be a loud gunshot, is there? Then the audience gets it. Five hundred captive opinions in a dark silent place, that are afraid to be heard lest there be trouble.

Richard Burton’s performance, moves your feelings out of your prison. He employs a few tricks of the modern theatre. He does rip off James Dean’s method acting with the wrists to the face. The wrist is vulnerable. We can see the blood in our veins. Here too is a super honest resignation to our fate. We are prisoners of a grungy world that has no more visits from that other more promising place – after death. Hamlet has been up all night having rhetorical argument with his college educated buddies. There was a knife fight. Coming home, Hamlet needs tangible sympathy from a warm woman. Who knows his complaint by heart! She comforts him. They go to bed just as the cock crows thrice.

Been there! Done that!

Lara’s gun, is a transporter machine for bad actors who want something more real. It is not a toy. Acting is not a toy. If you shuffled in both performances, what would be the core message – in twenty words or less?

I am going to make a contest of this. What actor brings out more of your emotions, and, gets more of your sympathy?

Lara is involved in gun-play. She does pick up the skull of Yorick, and does have a giant tattoo of a black widow spider. She is playing with death. It does give her power.

I would not encourage Lara to become a Shakespearean actor until she reads my revelations about Erasmus. They she can open Pandora’s box to a new theatre Renaissance, that will invited Russian actors to take part. There is no Russian Rap. I suspect Lara is interested in Rap and wants to be seen as a modern.  I found Lara while looking to replace Rena Easton as my portrait of Fair Rosamond. I chose the image of her above for this portrait yet to begin. Lara’s gun-struggle is the theme of my movie that I now title ‘Black Widow’. I have written the greatest Death Scene ever written, that goes with this music, that has soul up the Yin-Yang!

Fratricide by a daughter. Unheard of. To kill, or not kill my father. That’s the question that puts Victoria on a lonely road – never traversed! She walks alone. Until……………?

To kill, is to forget. The attempt to forget, is to remember. Sometimes it is – to get to know your father for the first time, as my daughter was bid to do? Was want to do? After all this effort was spent, to live, as if she never had a father?

A shrine was made to the Lone Child…..The Shrine of No Need To Know. Then I am, there. My child picks up a guitar and sings to me. It was a pleasant audition. I’d rather she came at me with a gun, firing away, trying to kill me, so that at least I would have had, a fighting chance.

The last time I saw my father, Victor, he was going for his gun in his desk drawer. Before he could make it appear, I shouted;

“Grow up!”

He froze. It was a head-shot, a message that left the chamber……………………….so long ago.

“I heard you want to kill your father?” Miriam put to her new boss, a real zinger, then watched for her eyes to turn hot.

“I don’t think you have it in you!” Miriam added, then watched Victoria’s jaw muscles tighten as she tried to hide the fact she was gritting her teeth.

“Nope! You’re not a killer! That’s for sure!” Miriam delivered that line with a smirk.

“How do you know that? Victoria said defensively, and realized she was out of spittle and air. She suppressed her gulp.

“Because, if I was in your shoes, you would be dead right now!”

Victoria was afraid to make eye contact. She felt Miriam’s gaze fall on her paperweight that had her coat of arms, with her logo, on it.

“I bond with those who are about to die! Hey. I like this. Can I have it. I think this fits me, more than you.”

“Did you just call me a “bitch”? Lara said in a fit of controlled energy, and, was half out of her chair.

“Sit down – BITCH! You’re hallucinating! Don’t sweat it. With me around, you don’t have to kill anybody. Isn’t this why I got hired? I was just testing. Now I know you don’t have my back.”–Elizabeth-Taylor-Dwight-D-Eisenhowers-connections-to-the-Howard-Young-Medical-Center-382422051.html

The Rosemond Art Dynasty

Back in London, Caspar succumbed to drugs and severe depression. He passed away on October 2, 1975.

“Caspar tried to come to terms with life, for my sake, and then suddenly could not try any more” wrote Ann. “I shall miss him forever, until a year ago he was a marvelous companion and more recently one’s heart was anguished for there was no help one could give.”

Wednesday morning, The Hollywood Reporter published a story claiming that Putin had “been excised from two upcoming studio features” for fear of a retaliatory Russian hack. The biggest of the two features that The Hollywood Reporter alleged went to Putin-excising extremes was Red Sparrow, the anticipated adaptation of Jason Matthews’s spy thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence.

The details of her death have baffled many – but new light may have been shed on her state of mind by an investigation into the Rose of the World cult that she joined shortly before her death.

Details of the cult were revealed to the New York Daily News by journalist Peter Pomerantsev, who researched Korshunova’s case for an upcoming book.

In its pages, the Rose cult’s reputation for ‘dehumanizing’ treatment of its followers was spelled out in detail, including meetings characterized by shouting, confusion and emotional domination.

Pomerantsev, who joined the cult to experience it first-hand, said that while he was there its ‘coaches’ humiliated and blamed members for the wrongs in their lives – and even described Korshunova as a ‘typical victim’.

Lyric Fantasy circa 1913-4 Augustus John OM 1878-1961 Bequeathed by Mrs Reine Pitman 1972


Yesterday I discovered Augustus John was the inspiration for ‘The Horse’s Mouth’ which was Bill Arnold’s favorite movie. Bill was the love of Christine Rosamond Benton’s life, and it was her desire to marry him one day. Then he was killed by a train the night of my eighteenth birthday. Exactly how and why this gifted artist and writer left the planet, remains a mystery, as does Christine’s death. What we know for certain, is Bill, Christine, and myself, were gifted artists. When my sister took up art, I was her role model. She wanted us to paint together, and be famous together.

He is said to have been the model for the bohemian painter depicted in Joyce Cary‘s novel The Horse’s Mouth, which was later made into a 1958 film of the same name with Alec Guinness in the lead role.

The Liz and Getty Sobriety

John Paul Getty III with his mother at Rome’s Police Headquarters. Eldest of the four children of John Paul Getty, Jr. and Abigail Harris (L), and grandson of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty, he was kidnapped in Rome on 10 July 1973 and released on 15 December 1973, shortly after a ransom was paid by his grandfather, after his abductors had cut off one of his ear.

Ian Fleming – Talitha Getty – Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor

I love doing Family Trees. I am a genealogist of renown, for in tracing the source of the Rosamond name to Rougemont, I have proven the Knight Templars owned the Shroud of Turin. Jean de Rougemont, is the Queen Mother of most of the Royal Habsburgs you see in the large canvas in back of me.

Twenty minutes ago I found the image of a Blue Knight on a Black Horse. It is a Frisian Horse. This horse and rider is the coat of arms of the city of Leeks in the Netherlands. This is where the artist, Willem Jilts Pol was born. That is Willem with his wife Arnoldine Adriana “Adine” Mees  below the photo of Elizabeth Taylor,  her son, Christopher Wilding, who married Aileen Getty. Now, add the artist, Christine Rosamond Benton, to this group, and you have a Art Dynasty, and the Bond Dynasty, created by Ian Fleming, who had no idea what an amazing seed he planted! That is the actor and artist, Michael Wilding, doing the portrait of a Rose. I am in love with art, poetry, and, history. I suppose I am the family historian, that can be quite the orphan. Pol’s portraits look like Liz! Connections!

I am going to post more on the quest for a Female Bond, that describes her as a kick-ass lady. Why must she have this attribute? There are four people who qualify to be both Bond genders, and that is John Paul Getty, and his wife Talitha, born, Talitha Dina Pol, and, Liz Taylor, and Richard Burton. These two men, and these two women, knew everyone, and partied like there was no tomorrow. Ian Fleming wanted Burton to play James Bond. My kindred turned down the offer. Here is Richard with his wife as an event, smoking a cigarette. How much has he had to drink? The look in Liz’s eyes, is a tell. Has anybody ever counted the drinks James takes in his movies and books?

Owning thirty years of sobriety, my Bond does battle with alcohol – out of the gate! There is no greater tragedy then to see two people destroy themselves with alcohol and drugs – and each other. This was the case of John and Talitha. They did everything they could to save each other. Talitha, lost her quest. John got sober, and did many fine things in the world of art. He was knighted after he became a British subject. My sister, Christine drowned on her first sober birthday.

Before I found the Blue Knight, I found a wooden bridge to Lara’s house. I was looking at where she lives in comparison to Leeks. It’s a fairytale setting. Lara’s father is a renowned breeder of the Frisian Horse. If I insulted him, and Lara, I apologize.

When I saw the Blue Knight, I alas was able to accept the truth……..I have a huge crush on Lara Roozemond, and she knows it. She is my muse, and my model for Victoria Bond, whom I can not toss aside. The beautiful black horse, will go, where it will go. Without love, none of the people you see in this post, would exist. In saying this, I am a candidate for the New James Bond, the better lover. Did Ian Fleming have children? Yes! Did Ian name his son after Caspar John, the Sea Lord? That is his father with the writer, James Joyce.

In finding the Frisian horse, comes the answer to the quest-ion – Is Lara Roozemond our kin? Does she fit – with these? In God’s name will some bright young chap and being, go put a love letter in Lara’s mailbox! Show some courage! Write her a poem!

I responded to Lara’s poems and suggested she author an epic poem. I thought she responded to this suggestion – with another poem. I now believe I was ignored, because, there are other old men enamored by this beautiful poetess, probably because they understand she is the epitome of Western Culture that is based upon Courtly Love, and ‘The Unattainable Woman’ .

My fiancé’s kin was a major player in King Rene’s court. I have Victoria Bond seducing young equestrians – with a bandage. While in prison, Rene wrote and illustrated one our greatest books. It begins with a knight waking to find his heart is lying next to him. He has been wounded by Love. He is in need of a bandage. My Bond, is an epic poem. Only brave men can author a kick-ass poem!

If I come in as Bond, I will do all I can to destroy everyone in America who teaches, it is not a matter of what you know, but the color of your skin. Hitler’s sickness is on the rise in Europe. What he did to the Dutch People, is the unsung atrocity. He starved them to death – out of jealousy! It is not a matter of black lives matter, monsters came amongst the whites, always with the same lesson, that they do terrible things – for our own good!  It is a matter of cutting their lesson short, for they can’t wait to hurt every man, every woman, and every child who tread lightly upon the earth, looking for love.

Never again! Lara is  – The Hope of Tomorrow! This is why I am in love with her! Art, is hope! Lara is a work of art.

Aiming to make our life at ease, eventually destroying all the seas.

Technologies keep improving, fossil fuels keep polluting.

Our impact is too strong, the limits are gone.





Humans breathing the same polluted air, humans everywhere.

Kissing each other in the neck, shooting each other in the back.

Humans swimming in the same plastic oceans, humans full of emotions.

Striving for more, bigger and better, raising children into money go-getters.

We should all feel the fear for the dying atmosphere.

It’s selfishness we need to overcome, before we can all be one

We close our eyes and walk away so it’s not us who will the pay the price

Scared for the unknown, scared to be overthrown.






At that hour when all things have repose,
O lonely watcher of the skies,
Do you hear the night wind and the sighs
Of harps playing unto Love to unclose
The pale gates of sunrise?

When all things repose, do you alone
Awake to hear the sweet harps play
To Love before him on his way,
And the night wind answering in antiphon
Till night is overgone?

Play on, invisible harps, unto Love,
Whose way in heaven is aglow

Getty donated over £140m to various artistic and cultural causes. The National Gallery alone received £50m from him. He was awarded a knighthood in the Order of the British Empire (KBE) in 1987, but as a foreign national he could not use the title “Sir”. In December 1997 he was granted British citizenship and immediately renounced his US nationality. The Queen reportedly commented: “Now you can use your title, that’s nice.

It would be nice to write about Aileen Getty without identifying her first as an heiress, as the granddaughter of the late oil baron J. Paul Getty, as the sister of Paul, who lost an ear to Italian gangsters at 16 and his lucidity to a stroke at 25. Aileen would probably appreciate a description of herself so separate from her legacy, distanced as she seems from it, damaged as she has been by the side effects of privilege. But such an independent identity will never be hers to enjoy, in her lifetime or after, so let’s get it over with: Aileen Getty is the 36-year-old daughter of Jean Paul Getty, Jr. by his first wife, Gail; she should be partial heir to her family’s $750 million share of the J. Paul Getty fortune. Which only means that when Aileen has a showing of her art at a gallery, the critics get more pissed off than usual if they don’t like the art

Talitha Dina Pol was born in Java, then part of the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia), daughter of the artists Willem Jilts Pol (nl) (1905–88) and Arnoldine Adriana “Adine” Mees (1908–1948).[1]

Her father subsequently married Poppet John (1912–97), daughter of the painter Augustus John (1878–1961), a pivotal figure in the world of Bohemian culture and fashion. She was thus the step-granddaughter of both Augustus John and his muse and second wife, Dorothy “Dorelia” McNeil (1881–1969), who was a fashion icon in the early years of the 20th century. By Ian Fleming‘s widowed mother, Evelyn Ste Croix Fleming née Rose, Augustus John had a daughter and Talitha’s aunt, Amaryllis Fleming (1925–1999), who became a noted cellist.

The Imperial Rose

Ian Fleming is in my corner! We have suffered for our art. My literary sketching is done. Now, for my masterpiece!


Fleming was born in 1925, reportedly in Switzerland.[1] She was the illegitimate daughter of the painter Augustus John by his mistress Eve Fleming, mother of the writers Peter Fleming and Ian Fleming by her late husband, although most of her life she was raised as the adopted daughter of Eve Fleming as a pretence to hide her illegitimacy and only discovered her true parentage when she was in her twenties.[2]

Victoria Bond attended Le Rosey, and was the epitome of a Rosey Brat, a truth she wants to leave far behind her. She had a anonymous patron. Some suspect the Agha Kahn took her under his wings. Her peers spread rumors, and called her a Royal Slut and Mistress of the one of the wealthiest men in the world. But, it was his wife who adopted Lara from afar, for all the right reasons. This lovely woman called Victoria

The Imperial Riding Cup
Lara Roozemond can ride a horse like this. She competed in the Imperial Riding Cup. This is a plus for ‘The Bond Woman’. I am fashioning a glass slipper for Lara’s foot. When I looked at her on Instagram, a Jaguar ad appeared. She’s a……….Horseshoe in?
Lara rode ‘No Angel’. This will be the title of a chapter, a scene from ‘The Royal Janitor’. Where after competing, she drives willy-nilly to the Horseshoe Inn. This is her hoof stomping ground. Belting down a shot of Kentucky Bourbon, she spots the Austrian who competed in the Men’s event.
“Look at the hindquarters on that one. And those eyes. He reeks of good breeding. I must have him!”
And off she slinks across the room, like a black panther. The female bartender shakes her head. She has seen this predator in action before. They call her the Black Widow, for, she loves them and leaves them – devastated! She is utterly crazy and dysfunctional when she gets like this, And it is not the whisky.
Victoria’s girlfriend comes in and sees she has her prey cornered.
“She shouldn’t get on a horse. She thinks she is the reincarnation of a Centauride. She was a shut-in as a child, and read a lot. She has an altar to Hera. She believe men fucked the worship of her all up. She is out for revenge.
Uh-oh. He’s feeling dominated and wants the upper hand. If he touches her in a superior manner, she’ll kick the shit out him! She knows French Foot Boxing. When her eyes start blazing, and she declares “I am Arion!” best cut her off.”

I want my female Bond to be half mad, for what was done to her. Note the pic of Lara and her lover in the lower right-hand corner. I love this shot! This is her inner black panthers taking control. (add smile) You can not write good poetry – unless you are mad! Did I tell you Victoria has committed to memory a million poems? Don’t let her corner you when she’s… the mood.

On the subject of Arion, Homer said in the Iliad:[4]
“… there is no man that shall catch thee by a burst of speed, neither pass thee by, nay, not though in pursuit he were driving goodly Arion, the swift horse of Adrastus, that was of heavenly stock …”
Pia Christina Miller Getty (born 1966), is an American independent filmmaker.[1] She is the oldest daughter of businessman Robert Warren Miller and sister of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece and Denmark and Princess Alexandra von Fürstenberg, a trio famously dubbed the Miller Sisters.
Pia spent her childhood in Hong Kong and attended Le Rosey School in Switzerland. She later studied art history at Georgetown University.
In 1992 in Bali, she married Getty Oil heir Christopher Ronald Getty, son of Jean Ronald Getty and grandson of Jean Paul Getty. The couple has four children, Isabel (b. 1993), Robert Maximilian (b. 1996), Conrad (b. 1998), and Maximus (b. 2002). They divorced in 2005. She is the godmother of her niece, Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark.

Institut Le Rosey (French pronunciation: ​[ɛ̃stity lə ʁo.zɛ]), commonly referred to as Le Rosey or simply Rosey, is a boarding school in Rolle, Switzerland. It was founded by Paul-Émile Carnal in 1880 on the site of the 14th-century Château du Rosey in the town of Rolle in the Canton of Vaud. It is one of the oldest boarding schools in Switzerland.
The school also owns a campus in the ski resort village of Gstaad in the Canton of Bern, to where the student body, faculty, and staff move during the months of January through March. In 2015, the son of the fourth director of Le Rosey Philippe Gudin, Christophe Gudin, became the fifth one. Michael Gray is the headmaster.[4]

Le Rosey’s philosophy is inspired by what Harvard educationalist Howard Gardner has called “multiple intelligences“: “its aim is to develop all Roseans’ talents through academic, sporting and artistic programmes.”[9] The school offers a demanding bilingual and bicultural education with the language of instruction being French or English depending on the student’s academic program; however, students may take many language classes while at Le Rosey.

Le Rosey school in Geneva

It is known as the school of kings, counting among its alumni the Shah of Iran, Prince Rainier of Monaco and King Farouk of Egypt. Its catchment area was once the glittering palaces that housed the grandest families on the Continent: the Metternichs, the Borgheses and the Hohenlohes.
But Institut Le Rosey is now spreading its net to humble old Britain. For the first time in its 135-year history, the prestigious Swiss boarding school has been recruiting gilt-edged pupils, aged seven to 18, in London.
Co-educational since 1967, it is keen to claim a slice of a market hitherto dominated by British boarding schools such as Eton and Harrow.
But at £80,000 a year – more than twice their fees – the most expensive school in the world will hardly be cherry-picking the brightest and best middle-class British pupils. Their parents find British school fees steep enough already.
London, however, has become the city of choice for the world’s richest parents so is also home to the world’s richest kids. And it is they who formed the target audience for Le Rosey’s recruitment drive last week, held at the city’s Swiss Embassy.
