If the moon landing was faked and the whole event was actually a staged movie, does the director of the movie deserve an academy award ?

With all the conspiracy theories written about JFK and Marilyn Monroe, why isn't there a conspiracy theory that says Joe DiMaggio shot JFK?

I visited Graceland when I helped my cousin move out there. I was at his tombstone, and a single leaf fell, and landed on my shoulder, and stuck the landing! I put it in a frame and gave it to my Mom who was perhaps one of the biggest Elvis fans ever. :)

I also saw him in NYC around 1993 or so, he was driving a UPS truck.

Did Joe DiMaggio order John F. Kennedy killed?

This past Saturday marked the 45th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. According to scholars, historians, politicians, The Government, and the History Channel, Kennedy was gunned down by Lee Harvey Oswald, a mysterious goon who was both an ex-Marine and a Communist. These powers that be claim Oswald acted alone, entirely driven by his own delusions of grandeur. Or so the story goes.

Of course, you could believe the conspiracists. The ones who believe Oswald was set up. They believe it could have been any one of the following:

– The Cubans
– The Russians
– The CIA (check out this wild link!)
– The FBI
– The Mob
– Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson
– The Israelis
– The Illuminati
– Tonya Harding

But the one person who seems to get off pretty easy on the conspiracy front is the Yankee Clipper himself, Joe DiMaggio. No one seems to question his lack of involvement. Consider this:

Joe DiMaggio married Marilyn Monroe in 1954. Despite being divorced only nine months later, for years DiMaggio continuously put flowers on her grave. He had an undying commitment to her. Monroe, who died of an overdose in 1962, supposedly had affairs with both John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. According to this article, DiMaggio truly believed the Kennedys killed Monroe to end some of her verbal transgressions. What Monroe said or learned from the Kennedys is up to dispute, but according to rumor, she told Frank Sinatra about some of the CIA’s dealings in Cuba and their actions against organized crime. Her loose lips may have spelt the end for her.

Funny thing about the conspiracy theories of faked moon landings is that after Mythbusters did a show devoted to it, I haven't heard any nutters claiming they were faked ever since.

It really seemed to put that to bed.

YES.

... although that was about Mars rather than the Moon ?

Besides, as I remember the storyline, wasn't the 'fake' version of coverage cobbled together to cover for failings that came out of the original efforts to produce a genuine Mars landing ? That's a bit different from just faking the whole thing from scratch.

On a more literal level, the marriage of a hot-headed Sicilian and a level-headed Englishman, who had no idea what he was getting himself into.

Black Diamond ... so .... when the moon is full and you turn into a werewolf, do you stay a werewolf if it's 6:30Am, broad daylight and the moon is still out? Or do you turn back into Black Diamond with the dawn?

I say it depends on the movie's script.

Yes. Would depend on the script. I am excited because a friend of mine is going to give me the original Lon Cheney movie along with Bela Lugosi Dracula and Boris Karloff Frankenstein. Haven't seen these since I was little.

If you like silent horror flicks, you can get some off google as a lot are public domain. Seems a few companies didn't think ahead and renew copyrights. The biggest blunder of them all: The Phantom of the Opera" (1925) starring Lon Chaney (His son played the Wolfman His real name was Creighton Chaney. Changed it to Lon Jr under studio pressure). Universal didn't renew the copyright when they are the studio that created all those old B&W, 30s-40s monsters and movies. Same with "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (like 1923) also starring Lon Chaney. "Nosferatu" and "The Cabinet of Dr Caligari" are a couple more.

So, they either haven't thought of it, or ... their dedication and loyalty don't extend past a NFL fine.

Country has more than a couple of sub-genres. depends on which you prefer. But the oler guys are going to call you a traitor, sinner, etc :laugh:

**Your not the only one...no..not a sin..

~ "The offspring of famous musicians often have a hard time creating a career for themselves, yet Hank Williams, Jr. is one of the few to develop a career that is not only successful, but markedly different from his legendary father.

Originally, Hank Jr. simply copied and played his father's music, but as he grew older, he began to carve out his own niche and it was one that owed as much to country-rock as it did to honky tonk.

In the late '70s, he retooled his image to appeal both to outlaw country fans and rowdy Southern rockers, and his makeover worked, resulting in a string of Top Ten singles -- including the number one hits "Texas Women," "Dixie on My Mind," "All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)," "Honky Tonkin'," and "Born to Boogie" ~

Is it Song of Solomon or Song of Songs ?

Well - that depends.

The original reads something like "This (the stuff contained herein) is the Song of Songs....which is Solomon's"

So - it's like saying "This whole collection is THE song of all time. And it's written by Solomon"
