I got a tweet from Richard Harmon, executive producer of “Crypto”, about an Indiegogo project to finish his film, here (I had some trouble with the tiny url on the tweet, but I found it myself.)
I had talked about Harmon here on April 18, 2014, in conjunction with “Judas Kiss”, where co-star Timo Descamps accepted a wind sprint challenge from him, making a video where Timo says “Richard Harmon is the greatest of all time, of all time”. Harmon wins the race.
The horror film involves the protagonist (Harmon) playing a journalist who finds his own haunted past shooting video in the woods. It intends release in 2018. Some of it has been filmed along coastal British Columbia.
I tweeted back that it’s unusual for films with established stars to seek crowdfunding, but Zack Braff did it for the 2014 film “Wish I Was Here”. I don’t know how often executive producers (Harmon is an XP for “Crypto”) has to raise more money late in the production of a film.
I am aware of several independent projects involving people I have some possible connection to. I may try to work with them somehow in combination with my own project “Epiphany”. But I have to finish my own relocation first.

The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC took a vote on its Discernment for inclusiveness after church today.
The vote, with three choices, dealt with whether members felt that inclusiveness on many issues in church ceremonies, including sexual orientation and gender identity, was consistent wit Christian teaching. An affirmative vote would presumably pave the way for same-sex marriage ceremonies in the church, as well as possibly recognizing same-sex couples as parents.
I grew up in this church. The current sanctuary building opened on Christmas Day, 1955, under Dr. Edward Pruden.
I visited the Catoctins, which are a separate ridge just east of the Blue Ridge, really technically the Piedmont, very old. I wanted to be a little fitter for a mandatory Medicare physical on Thursday.
I remember a Sierra Club hike on a rainy fall day in 1972, before “My Second Coming”. Catoctin Park is now managed by the National Park Service, but Cunningham Falls is a state park.

I made a quick day trip Monday (Labor Day, Sept. 4) down the Fort Valley, SW of Front Royal VA, off Route 55. This road (678) splits the Massanutten Mountain (highest point is Signal Knob about 3200 feet) into two ridges, with an impressive canyon.
Town Danceboutique held a benefit Sunday night, Sept. 3, for the LGBT Fallen Heroes Fund, hosted by Dixie Longate.
This turned out to be a Tupperware party with Dixie sounding like an auctioneer. What I recall is those meetings in the 1970s when Ii would get invited to somebody’s house to consider becoming an Amway distributor. Yup, multi-level marketing.
