The update to the Anatomy of the 2nd floor lunch room encounter, will be out some point in Feb. I have made some good progress and the article is 25 odd pages longer. The interrogations essay is making progress as well, it is about 100 pages already. I just keep finding stuff…..
However due to work commitments it means that everything is going to take longer. I have to spend my time more carefully so the first movie won’t be in the bag until April/May. Which is also the time the interrogations essay will be coming out.
I will be at the DPUK Conference in Canterbury end of April and will be involved in some shape or form, but will not give a talk, much to the surprise of the gathered bunch of members at the AGM in the Flying Horse pub on Jan 21st. I simply have too much going on and have to fight them battles more carefully…….
first this site and a few others got hacked and had a spam bot installed that sent millions of spam mails. Google blacklisted the site, but has all been rectified and given a clean state of health and is a lot more secure now.
Then there was the one day seminar in London, we had 15 souls downstairs at The Greene Man pub near Great Portland St. Dealey Plaza UK held a one day seminar where I did a talk about the 2nd floor encounter and also talked about Oswald’s interrogations, which is my next essay. I hope to have it finished before year’s end. Don’t hold me to it tho ;).
We followed with a screening of A Coup In Camelot. We managed to watch it on a 65″ 4K screen. Everyone enjoyed watching the documentary a lot. I myself enjoyed the Barry Ernest and Vince Palamara sections, even though I am well familiar with their work, it was good to see their research presented in this excellent documentary.
Barry Keane did a fitting tribute to J.F.K. at the very end, like he always does every year. After which half of us went back into the pub since it had been such an enjoyable event. Talks about Canterbury have already started and we will try and get a killer line-up for this event. 2.5 days of constant yapping about all types of aspects of the JFK Assassination, what’s not to love :)
Out of the blue Stu Wexler told me that I was being presented with an award at the Mary Ferrell awards at the JFK Lancer conference in Dallas last weekend.
I have been given the Mary Ferrell New Frontier Award 2016 at the JFK Lancer Conference for my Anatomy essay. The Award is for new research in respect to my work on further exploring the official story of the Oswald encounter. The Pioneer awards are intended to recognise and honour new research in a variety of fields. This year Bill Simpich, Malcolm Blunt and a few others received the awards along with me.
At first my reply to Stu was “yeah right”, but I was quickly convinced otherwise.
I am humbled by this Award and have to thank the JFK Lancer team, for the great honour of this accolade and since it is only the first piece of four, it is a major stimulant to continue.
The article is due a substantial update so watch this space.
I got a mention on Goodreads, alongside the review of Stan Dane’s book.
“In 2015 Dealey Plaza U.K. held a presentation by a researcher named Bart Kamp which studied the image known as ‘Prayer Man’. Mr. Kamp hopes to publish his findings in 2016. His video is available on You Tube. In the meantime I found out about this 2015 publication from Stan Dane.”
I am chuffed :)
I have finished the movie, but decided not to release it publicly just yet as I feel the need to edit it a bit. The whole thing lasts 1 hr 20 mins and I reckon it needs to be 20/25 mins shorter and certain bits need to be snappier and have a better multi-media representation. It is just odds and sods, but since I worked non stop on this for the past 20 days I have given myself a few days break as I have been so on top of it all. I hope to have this ready by this time next week.
Then I also did a Prayer Man talk at the yearly commemoration of JFK’s death with the posse of Dealey Plaza UK, where I am a member of. I spoke for two hours and it was all really civil where the watchers were asking the odd question in between, cleverly they were waiting while I was pausing and sipping from pints 1/2/3/4 :)
I managed to yap for two hours without any notes and using the same software that will be in the movie and this helped me as well in knowing what to do next with the movie, so all in all a good exercise. I also showed them a bunch of pix that the knowledgeable ones had not even seen and which I shall post soon here as well. The head honchos thought it would be a good idea to repeat this talk with new additional stuff in April 2016 at the Canterbury conference and even for the print edition of the Dealey Plaza Echo (when that will be is still open).
A tiring but satisfying last week.
Special thanks to Phil Murray of Live AV for helping out with a shiny screen to present my talk on!
