This was one of the coolest aspects of the 80s. Music and movies belong together. If you liked the movie, chances were you loved the soundtrack. Here's a good example of this 80s phenomenon.

Working on some art.....
I start the weekend on Thursday night because life is too short and everyday should be the weekend. I'm working on some new abstract paintings with a few apps.

Finally, He Gets It......I was so glad when Dr. Gupta reversed his position on weed. There's been so much negative propaganda over the last hundred years it's nice to see the truth coming out and even nicer to see educated, intelligent people from our government telling the truth and being positive.
Check out the article on CNN

When I'm not making art, I'm fascinated with mystery. Anything that seems odd, out of the ordinary, just this side of extraordinary, I'm usually excited to learn about. I remember when I first learned of this mystery I was a teenager watching the show, Unsolved Mysteries. I may have seen it on the news at first because I lived in California at the time and L.A. news was always on the tv.
The Official White Wash on Wikipedia
This is a fascinating story and it's difficult to deal with the fact that we'll probably never know the truth about what happened to Philip Taylor Kramer but it's fun to speculate. I think he may have been captured by some evil corporate entity, or the government, and used to give them his work on moving things faster than the speed of light...aka..time travel. Then, because he's seen way too much they kill him and dump his car/body at the same general area from which he was last heard.
The Celestine Prophecy
This book was huge in the early 90s. I never read it but there were a lot of people who did and were excited about the new age ideas in the book. Philip Taylor Kramer was reported to be captivated by this book. Here's a link to learn more about it The Celestine Prophecy
Isn't it Weird......
that no one found his remains and the remains of his Ford Aerostar until four years later??? The crash scene was found in Decker Canyon nearly 4 years from the date of his disappearance. I find it hard to believe that someone didn't see this crash scene sooner. All the canyon are highly traveled by cars, hikers, ambitious teenagers ditching school, it just doesn't seem believable.
The L.A. Times
did several pieces on this story. Here's a link to the set at their site Philip Taylor Kramer articles
The Whole Story Does Not Add Up
In the last days of his known life, Philip Taylor Kramer was tired, rejuvenated, bizarre, energized, and exhausted at the same time. This man was a genius on multiple levels. Anyone working on a large project would be going through these same emotions but for him, it was on a much grander scale considering the breakthroughs in his work would effect all mankind. Read the story.....read the articles.....in my opinion, Greg Martini is an interesting character....see what you think about his involvement in the life of Kramer.
Was He Just Crazy????
I don't think so. At this point in his life, he had made a major breakthrough in his work. He was calling the math that led him to this breakthrough "sacred." Many people find that terminology strange. I don't. I think math is the key to everything. So, for him to call refer to his equations as sacred seems logical to me. The level of that kind of math is so high you pretty much have to invent modern terminology to explain the deep meaning the math represents.
The Truth Will Be Known
at some point. It's just frustrating in the meantime. We seek the truth. It's an inexplicable part of the human condition. Stories of this nature will always pull us in because we just can't help ourselves when a good mystery presents itself. I hope wherever he is that Philip Taylor Kramer found what he was looking for.
Beware you are about to have a close encounter with something very cool and eye opening......
I was watching videos on Youtube and I came across a fascinating radio show hosted by a woman named Mae Brussell. Who is Mae Brussell, right? I looked her up and found this on Wikipedia and Mae Brussell.com
