I have been getting a response from Asian people to my posts. I have decided Victoria Bond is a Buddhist – for several reasons. China is threatening the Philippines and other nations where Buddhism is practiced. I had a Tibetan teacher who was being considered as a replacement for the present Dalai Lama. Many Asians want to be part of our American culture, and are being shut out by the Evangelical Facehuggers that POTUS is catering to – while neglecting most of the world. This is insane! I wish they would Rapture already – without destroying the world out of spite! Good riddance!
Of course Hollywood is studying Trump’s base, who want more movies made about them. Trump and his Facehugger leaders are going GaGa over Google. They want more results that say they are in charge of ALL REALITY! Enter………’The Gideon Computer’.
My best friend in Oakland, was Calvin Iwamoto. We were roommates for a year. His mother was a Filipino, and his father a Japanese Hawaiian who practiced Buddhism. He got mad at me when he discovered I had no Japanese lovers. He asked me if I was prejudice. I told him the opportunity never arose. My other good friend, was a black artist. He was my roommate. I have had black lovers.
Cal looks very much like Takeshi Kanno. The account in the Los Angeles Herald is a classic universal story and would make a movie in itself. I am looking at Japanese directors to do this film, that will be released at the same time ‘The Royal Janitor’ is released. This will be a first. Two films would feed each other in an East meets West – way! Think, cult following. Our mutual friend, Paul Drake played Mick in Sudden Impact.
Let’s call this movie ‘Creation Dawn’. It is based on a Poetic Drama, that is a collaboration between members of the Bohemian Club, and Joaquin Miller’s Japanese Poets in residence, who are secret agents of the Emperor, who sees a coming clash between the two cultures, and believe an understanding of the Bohemian poets will give him an edge on the battlefield. Consider what goes on at Bohemian Grove.
Everything is gong fine, then, Gertrude Boyle enters stage right. She is a schizophrenic doing a Kabuki dance modeled after Isadora Duncan and Lucia Joyce who ends up in an institution. The movie will open with Gertrude’s sister having her arrested for insanity as she tries to board a tramp steamer for Japan. I would like to see a collaboration between the director Hideo Nakata, and Zhang Yimou. Zhang will capture the California landscape and wrap it in an Oriental Mystique, while Hideo explores the inner demons that haunt Gertrude, the Bohemian Grove, and the idea of Free Press and Expression.
The influx of Asians to California should be explored. Did traditional demons come with? The wild west was free of the priggish Christian ministers. The Rapture was just invented in Ireland. The Franciscans had found a home earlier. There is the presence of Yurai, and the want to put it to rest. There is only one Buddhist Priest, and she is a woman.
I just realized this idea resembles the series ‘Kung Fu’ which the younger generation is not familiar with. It also looks like ‘The Hatchet Man’ one of my favorites when I was around twelve. I suspect Mike Pence has been calling up Hollywood directors demanding they make more End Time Horror flicks in order to drive more victims to vote Republican.
So, I am free from this bullshit game going on in the Entertainment Industry. I am taking real action, like the real James Bond. I am doing battle with Russian, China, and Christian Cult that took over our Democracy, leaving many people WHO WANT C, high and dry! I plan to create a Democratic Cult around Victoria Bond, whose movies will sell tickets on a global scale. then I will have them by the short hairs. Profits will go for a worldwide Bohemian Buddhist Movement that will be the Frontline against America’s real enemies. Women will be honored.
I will show you how the Emperor of Japan sent emissaries to California in order to created a bond between the East and the West.

Another chapter was written today in the dramatic romance of ‘Gertrude Boyle Kanno, noted California sculptress, well known in Los Angeles and Pasadena art circles, and Takeshi Kanno, Japanese poet and philosopher, who were married in Seattle in the spring of 1907 after a romantic wooing at The Heights, summer home of the late Joaquin Miller. Superior Judge Troutt in San Francisco today called for trial the secret complaint of Mrs. Kanno. asking divorce on the grounds of extreme cruelty. Jealousy and suspicion and refusal to provide are Mrs. Kanno’s charges. “Several times defendant has accused plaintiff of want of chastity and lack of virtue,” says the complaint, “and has persecuted plaintiff through his extreme jealousy.” When she was absent from home, alleges Mrs. Kanno, her Oriental husband would telephone to their friends and explain his suspicions and fears to them. Mrs. Kanno alleges that she always has been a dutiful wife and has given Kanno no cause for mistrust. None of the details of her sensational arrest last March on charges of insanity brought by her sister, Helen Boyle, are recited in Mrs. Kanno’s complaint. At that time she admitted her affection for Kanno, the poet, had waned in favor of E. Eishagaka, a young Japanese sculptor. Mrs. Kanno says she has supported herself entirely by her own labor. Kanno has filed no answer to the complaint, although it was died March 17, and he was served with a summons two days later. It is expected the suit will go to Mrs. Kanno by default.
According to traditional Japanese beliefs, all humans have a spirit or soul called a 霊魂 (reikon). When a person dies, the reikon leaves the body and enters a form of purgatory, where it waits for the proper funeral and post-funeral rites to be performed, so that it may join its ancestors. If this is done correctly, the reikon is believed to be a protector of the living family and to return yearly in August during the Obon Festival to receive thanks.
However, if the person dies in a sudden or violent manner such as murder or suicide, if the proper rites have not been performed, or if they are influenced by powerful emotions such as a desire for revenge, love, jealousy, hatred or sorrow, the reikon is thought to transform into a yūrei, which can then bridge the gap back to the physical world. The emotion or thought need not be particularly strong or driving, and even innocuous thoughts can cause a death to become disturbed. Once a thought enters the mind of a dying person, their Yūrei will come back to complete the action last thought of before returning to the cycle of reincarnation.
The yūrei then exists on Earth until it can be laid to rest, either by performing the missing rituals, or resolving the emotional conflict that still ties it to the physical plane. If the rituals are not completed or the conflict left unresolved, the yūrei will persist in its haunting.
Oftentimes the lower the social rank of the person who died violently, or who was treated harshly during life, the more powerful as a yūrei they would return. This is illustrated in the fate of Oiwa in the story Yotsuya Kaidan, or the servant Okiku in Banchō Sarayashiki.
Buddhism (/ˈbʊdɪzəm/, US also /ˈbuː-/) is the world’s fourth-largest religion with over 520 million followers, or over 7% of the global population, known as Buddhists.[web 1] An Indian religion, Buddhism encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices largely based on original teachings attributed to the Buddha and resulting interpreted philosophies. Buddhism originated in Ancient India as a Sramana tradition sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE, spreading through much of Asia. Two major extant branches of Buddhism are generally recognized by scholars: Theravada (Pali: “The School of the Elders”) and Mahayana (Sanskrit: “The Great Vehicle”).
All Buddhist traditions share the goal of overcoming suffering and the cycle of death & rebirth, either by the attainment of Nirvana or through the path of Buddhahood. Buddhist schools vary in their interpretation of the path to liberation, the relative importance and canonicity assigned to the various Buddhist texts, and their specific teachings and practices. Widely observed practices include taking refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha, observance of moral precepts, monasticism, meditation, and the cultivation of the Paramitas (virtues).
Theravada Buddhism has a widespread following in Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. Mahayana, which includes the traditions of Pure Land, Zen, Nichiren Buddhism, Shingon and Tiantai (Tendai), is found throughout East Asia.
Vajrayana, a body of teachings attributed to Indian adepts, may be viewed as a separate branch or as an aspect of Mahayana Buddhism. Tibetan Buddhism, which preserves the Vajrayana teachings of eighth century India, is practiced in the countries of the Himalayan region, Mongolia, and Kalmykia.
