The Oaklandon Blog

I have always liked the Town of Oaklandon, Indiana. In the late 1970's I was employed by Lawrence Parks Department and was often tasked with mowing the grass, picking up litter and emptying trash barrels at the Oaklandon Road "Play Park" (beneath the landmark water tower on the corner of Broadway Street.) Many years ago my wife and I had the chance to move out of the Near East Side of Indianapolis and found a charming "fixer-upper" in Oaklandon and continue to enjoy this town.

From what I have been able to gather, Oaklandon, Indiana has a very interesting history. However, it has not been very easy finding specific information about our town on the internet. It occurs to me that fellow community members might never learn many of the interesting facts about our community due to the disbursed nature of available information. I have decided to create this website as a way to consolidate the available information and hopefully learn more in my quest to build and maintain this website. It is my sincere hope that you might find it useful and entertaining.

Thank you for checking out the website. Visit Historic Oaklandon and environs when you get the chance and experience the home-town vibe for yourself.

So, Let's See The Attic.

It Lives In The AtticIt is always great fun to see what the good folks at Big Biting Pig Productions have unleashed upon the world with each of their annual horror productions. This year's release is their tenth movie to date. Written, directed and staring Steve Hudgins, it is titled "It Lives In The Attic" and perhaps the scariest thing about this film is that it ever lived in the mind of Steve Hudgins. You know what they say... better out than in. Oh, really?

 

It Lives In The AtticThe pre-release trailers for this film did little to reveal any more about what to expect than does the film's title; this signaled to me that the actual story line was being held close to the vest. Wishing not to take away from that spirit of mystery, a thorough review of this film is going to be little tough to do. I will say however, that it was fantastic to see Michael Coon in a leading role, all grown up and enjoying life as happy-go-lucky Andy. It was also good to see that Jessica Leonard was none the worse for wear; coming from her starring role in last years Big Biting Pig monster hit, to figure voluptuously into this tapestry of madness as Ellie, the girl next door. Steve Hudgins channeled his inner "Aqualung" in a masterful "perv"formance as the standoffish Barney.

I really don't think it is much of a stretch to say this production has crossed the line into a soft-porn classification but you may rest assured the horror is there in ample quantity to spoil the mood. Many familiar Big Biting Pig performers contribute admirably to the film and a good many of these seemed just a little too convincing when letting their freak flags fly.

It Lives In The AtticDisturbing? Yes. Uncomfortable? Yes. Horrific? Oh, yeah! Honestly, I came away from this film with much the same feeling as after having first viewed Stanley Kubrick's classic "A Clockwork Orange." In fact, to my mind, I think of this as Big Biting Pig's "A Cuckoo-Clockwork Orange" (I mean this in a good way.) Steve Hudgins and the Big Biting Pig crew always seems to bring us smart, thinking-person's horror, so you will want to bring your brain; of course it will be of no great help with this one, but you will still want to refer back to it as the closing credits begin to roll.

It Lives In The Attic? If only...

gorilla.bas

Basic SunGorillas, also known under the source code's file name Gorilla.Bas, is a video game first distributed with MS-DOS 5 and published in 1991 by IBM corporation. It is a turn-based artillery game. The game consists of two gorillas throwing explosive bananas at each other above a city skyline. The players can adjust the angle and velocity of each throw, as well as the gravitational pull of the planet. Written in QBasic, it is one of the programs included as a demonstration of that programming language.

Frequency Mumbo Jumbo

epileptic_seizures_warning.gifThe number of times a specified periodic phenomenon occurs within a specified interval is called its frequency.

Whether discussing the frequency with which the Earth revolves around the Sun (vise versa for our "Flat Earther" friends) or the waves of the various types of light emanating from that boring ol' Class G Star of ours there can be little doubt that frequencies are not only the spice of life, in many ways they are what give life to our reality. 

Quantum Jitters

In String Theory of Theoretical Physics it is postulated that the smallest particles that make up everything (elementary particles) are nothing more than invisible one dimensional vibrating strings and that the only thing differentiating these various constituents of our very existence is their rate of vibration (or frequency.)

Differing frequencies in the waves of light is what gives us colors (eg. blue is higher frequency than red.) Vibrations of the air are responsible for the sounds we hear (eg. low notes are slow waves high notes are faster waves.) Electromagnetic waves are useful for all sorts of radio related activities (including television and cellular phones.) So it should be obvious that you don't have to be fascinated with frequencies to find yourself totally immersed in them.

hypnotoadThere has been quite a bit of investigating by scientist as well as pseudo-scientist regarding the WSOGMM and how the various frequencies that surround us might be beneficial or detrimental if applied willingly to our person in some form or other. Michael Triggs over at Papercut Suicide has compiled a "listing of frequencies that various parties have claimed can affect the human mind or body in some way." See: Brainwave Frequency Listing for one of the Internet's best assemblage of information on this topic.

There are actually quite a lot of YouTube videos that offer "tone therapy/brainwave entertainment" of one form or another; I have decided to throw my hat into that ring.

The production highlighted in this article is a unique blend of audio and video and draws on an earlier discussion about freeviewing stereo image pairs. Since the act of 3D viewing (depth perception) is actually a mental construct whereby the brain blends information collected by each eye so as to present the consciousness with valuable information regarding the environment of this existence; it is hoped that by combining a few key frequencies and including an alternating stereophonic earth resonance pulse piggy-backed upon the stereo vision brain function that something interesting might manifest itself in the exercise. This approach has yielded an audio/visual experience like none other. Is this a good thing or is this a bad thing? You be the judge...

Time TunnelThe video presented here features positive and negative images of the BlogDogIt signature 'God's Eye' avatar rendered in black and white and alternating left for right at a frequency of 33 cycles per second as the visual component. The legendary Schumann Resonance (normally inaudible) has been rendered by a saw-tooth waveform to serve as the metronome for the piece. The 7.83Hz (cycles per second) 'ticking' alternates between left and right channels in an attempt to force both hemispheres of the brain to take part in the entertainment. The sound track is further infused with pure sine-wave tones of the 9Hz, 33Hz and 108Hz frequency. The 108Hz being responsible for the audible tone and the other two detectable as impressions upon the available auditory sensation.

One Second of Audio Waves

A One Second Sampling Of Raw Audio Tracks


 

The Brain Frequency Listing by Michael Triggs had the following to say about these included frequencies (visit the page for complete details):


7.83 - Earth Resonance, grounding [×], "Schumann Resonance." [TS, ESR+HSW, MAG]; anti-jetlag, anti-mind control, improved stress tolerance [SS]; psychic healing experiments [ESR]; pituitary stimulation to release growth hormone (helps develop muscle, recover from injuries, rejuvenation effects) [HSW]; Earth Resonance Frequency - 'leaves you feeling revitalized like you've spent a day in the country.' [PWM via DW]; reports of accelerated healing/enhanced learning - "the earth's natural brainwave" [MAG]

[HSW] notes that higher octaves of the 7.83 Schumann Resonance can also stimulate the pituitary in the same way that 7.83 HZ can - especially 31.32 HZ. (One needs to be careful to distinguish between octaves of the 7.83 Schumann Resonance, and the other six Schumann Resonances, which are not higher octaves of 7.83 HZ.)


8.6-9.8 Induces sleep, tingling sensations [SS]

9.0, 11.0, 16.0 [bad] documented calcium ion migration (brain tissue) [SS]

There's some disagreement over whether these frequencies offer anything to fear when used for binaural beats. Here's the thread from the Brainwave Generator message board : http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bwgen/message/4592

9.0 - 13.0 - Alpha Range (according to [VUG]) - relaxed, not thinking about anything in particular, sometimes a pleasurable feeling of "floating". Often dominant in certain kinds of meditation, alpha waves have for the past twenty years been associated with calm, lucid mental states (the "alpha state"). They're also often detected during dream sleep. This pattern typically occurs in daydreaming, relaxed awareness, guided or focused imagery & smoothly rhythmic athletic activity. There's often a euphoric, effortless feeling of "flow" as the doer is absorbed in activity and subject + object are felt to be united. [VUG via DW]

9.0 - 14.0 Alpha range (according to [AWI]) - Relaxed & detached awareness, visualization, sensory imagery, light reverie. Also, gateway to meditation - provides bridge between the conscious & subconscious mind. [AWI]

9.0 - Awareness of causes of body imbalance & means for balance[×] Blind person phantom touch reading (somatosensory cortex) [RA]; Associated with Sacral/Svadhisthana chakra (Color=Orange) (Body Parts=Gonads, Reproductive System) (Effects=Relationships/Sexuality) (Note=D) [OML]


 33 Christ consciousness, hypersensitivity, Pyramid frequency (inside) ; Schumann Resonance (5th frequency of 7) [TS]

Funky coincidence it lines up with the Christ Consciousness & Pyramid frequency, eh? I've had some interesting results with this one -- particularly when I overlap waves at 9.0 HZ (pyramid outside frequency). The mind tends to wander in funny ways.


 108 Total knowing


epileptic_seizures_warning.gifIt is very hard to say how this audio/visual presentation will effect you so understand that if you choose to experience this video you are doing so at your own risk. Headphones are recommended to make the most of the audio component just as stereo free-viewing is the suggested way to view. Parallel viewing of the native size video or crossed-eye viewing in full-screen mode seem to offer the same degree of stimulation.
