Boris Karloff was my neighbor

0

It is Halloween night 2011. It is a beautiful warm evening. There is a 1/2 moon. The kids are coming by my house for “trick or treat” Lots of them. I am watching Frankenstein with Basil Rathbone Lon Chaney and Boris Karloff.

I am reminded that Boris Karloff lived 7 miles from my home in New Milford Connecticut. I never knew that. No one around there knew. This was a small New England town. Everybody knew everything. Certainly, if a big star like Karloff lived there. I only found out because my new girlfriend Slylvia Prichard lived in his house with her parents. Her parents were British. So was Karloff. The Pritchards bought the home shortly after karloffs death in 1969. They had lived there just over a year when I met Sylvia.

It was a long time ago but I still remember it like it was yesterday. Sylvia and I were swimming on a hot June day in 1971. Only her mother was at home. She didn’t want to be left alone at night. Her mom had PTSD from being an English searchlight girl during the London Blitz in the 1940s. She was a bit quirky. Sylvias mother invited me to stay for dinner and to spend the night.

That is when I first heard the story of how Karloff had murdered his wife some 20 years earlier. Karloff was never arrested for the crime, but New Milford police always suspected him. At the time I was a young reporter, so I ventured over to the Police department and got my hands on the police report. It seemed Mrs Karloff had fallen down 30 stairs into the basement one night after an New York theater party. I had never heard of this. It was never in the papers. Never except this death notice from 1961 in the New Milford Times. “Andresca Karoff died accidently at her home on 312 Maple trail”

But the police report said they had found blood on Karloffs clothes.

As the evening wore on Mrs Pritchard revealed that she did not want to be alone because Andrescas Karloffs ghost roamed the house at night. Also, that sometimes Boris was there too. And that the murder was played out over and over. By this time it was nearing midnite. Both Sylvia and her mother were looped from wine we had been drinking.

I was like what the fuck?? Get out of here. Sylvia asured me that it was true but she didn’t care cause she took sleeping meds and never saw anything. I didn’t believe it. I thought they were both crazy.

Mrs. Pritchard saw that i wasn’t on board with yet another New England tale of horror and ghosts. No of course not I don’t believe in ghosts period. I didn’t then and I don’t now. I spent then night without episode.

I was tired and went off to my room in the basement. The guest room at the bottom of the stairs. Then something curious occured. An old car had pulled up to the back of the house when an older women came in through the sliding gloss door. It was Agness Mrs Pritchards sister who was visiting the family from England. She had been to bridge party in town. Not wanting to appear rude I sat at the sun table downstairs and chatted with her.

OMG she kept me up all night talking…… endlessly about her life in Liverpool. It was daybreak when I finally went to bed. agness went to bed in the room next to mine. Syvia and her mother had apparently passed out, because they did not come downstairs and rescue me from this odd duck.

I awoke late the next morining . Sylvia was smashed on ludes for sleeping and I from the old lady. During coffee when I asked about Sylvias aunt….Mrs Pritchard said. “What aunt??”

Your sister I said” Agnes. she kept me awake half the night talking”, Both Mrs Pritchard and Sylvias face drew pale.” I don’t have a sister Jann” When I took them to show them the old Mercedes parked in the back it was gone. The room next to the guest room was not a second guest room at all but an old unused coal furnis room.

Mrs Pritchard insisted ” It was her. It was her. It was Andresca Karloff you spoke with.” Like I said I don’t believe in ghosts. With a couple of lushes like the Pritchard, i have no idea what to believe. But this story is true and the case of Andresca Karloff death is still unsolved. And Agness? I don’t know what to make of her. But i did talk to her . she was as real as that cup of coffee you’re drinking. One other small fact. Andresca Karloff drove a 1961 Mercedes 220. The same car i had seen that June night in 1971.

Sunday Editorial Snippets by Jann Scott

Occupy Denver has made the front pages across America today. Why? Because the police tried to force ably remove the protesters from Civic Park. BIG MISTAKE The mayor, Governor or police have absolutely no idea what is at hand here. I am old enough to remember the police pushing everybody around during the 60s. Most Boomers are. And we don’t like seeing a bunch of politicians and cops pushing our kids and grand kids around. It’s beginning to piss us off. Word to the wise. Leave our kids the hell alone and go after the Bankers.

Now in Boulder the police and city are smart enough and professional enough that they would never ever get caught up in trying to bust up peaceful protests. congrats.

Mountain Bikers I find myself agreeing again with Macon Cowles. He seems to be smarting up as he ages. I do ride a Mountain Bike. At 65 I go easy, but from my auto racing days on dirt I still know how to put a few moves on the kids in a corner. But cyclists have a tendency to be rude and run people off bike paths and trails. So they need to take their fast bikes out in the woods where walkers, strollers, hikers, moms kids and seniors won’t get run over.

Marijuana    I do think the entire medical marijuana con should be turned into legalized  pot sold in liquor stores. It should be controlled, packaged, taxed to beat all hell and let it fund Medicare.  What other drugs are out there that are popular? Coke? Heroin? Legalize them too. Tax em and finance health care and social security. Lets legalize prostitution too. Fuck it. Just legalize and control all vice. Tax vice and fund treatment.  That will essentially eliminate big crime and we as a country can get on with living. I mean what the hey, drug sales, prostitution are huge in America. The are not going away and we are losing 100s of billions in tax revenues. Leave the morality to the churches, treatment to the Docs and decriminalize all of this bullshit.

Who and what to Vote for in Boulder…………whatever

0

I know. Another news geek telling you what and who to vote for. Well, yer darn tootin. Now listen up.

For city council, you can vote for whoever the hell you want. They are all the same in my book. Well, except Ken Wilson. I don’t like him. I think he’s a controlling little sneak. He won’t take phone calls and will not co operate with the press and he’s a hider. So right there is enough to not vote for him. He works for Xcel and lies about that too. And he voted again Public Access TV so he hates free speech all to hell. And he doesn’t like me so fuck him. :)

I like Lisa Morzel because she did vote for Public Access Tv  consistently. She is a big supporter of the poor and disenfranchised. A bit of a whiner, and hider but she is OK.

I do like George Karakehian. He returns phone calls, will talk to you, will talk to the press, is fair minded and honest. He is also a local Boulder businessman. So I like him.

The others , I don’t know and I don’t trust either. but they are all cut from the same cloth. Liberal, tree hugging anti capitalist government workers with top down mentality who embrace Group think. Fascists essentially.

The only truly important ballot issue to vote on are 2B2C which will take that coal burning piece of crap out of the hands of Xcel and put it in our hands where with hope we will tear it down in 100 years and rep/ace it with cold fusion. so no
matter how much it costs we have to do it for our children, grand children, the city, the future of Boulder, the earth and humanity. This is a no brainer. Xcel had their shot, now fuck em. It is time to Occupy Xcel and take over that god damned power plant. FUCK XCEL.

On Corporate Person hood. I am sorry I am not a commie. Leave the corporations alone.

Boulder PR whores blow

0

This last week Boulder Channel 1 found a resource about tourism on Downtown Boulders website. We thought it was good as is much of what they resource, so we reprinted it in our Visitors tourism section. Holy shit, you would have thought we robbed a bank. Instead of thanking us for using their material, the twitter SM wack job at DTB started complaining. Then their whole media department started lying. They said we didn’t credit them (which of course we did)….. but worse  we used their public information. OMG horrors. No wonder Downtown boulder is going broke with PR people like that in charge.

Downtown Boulder DM girl doesn't know whether she's coming or going?

When asked why they don’t send out press releases with their fabulous information they all responded with…. If you are too fucking dumb to come to our website, you shouldn’t see it….. Incidentally, the PR people at NCAR gave the same anti media attitude.

It is this pervasive protective popular attitude among PR flacks that I find amusing. They take themselves so seriously. Time was you’d get a blow job to print their story. Now you’d get a blow job and your eyes scratched out later. I dunno. What has the lying cheating whoring world of public relations come to?? crack??  We have had a standing problem with DTB. 11/2 years ago we wanted to cover their fashion show. They turned that into a nightmare. This past year we wanted to cover band on the bricks as we have for 20 years. They turned that into a cluster fuck too. Some people should not be in charge of media or run events.

I should teach a class called “how not to fuck up a wet dream” or media relations 101: forget everything they taught you in Communications class or J-School .

What killed Dan Wheldon? Jann Scotts’ Journal

0

A lot of open wheel drivers have been killed by head injuries. When Dan Wheldons Indy car smashed into the fence his head took the brunt of the impact. How do I know this? Everyone in racing knows. First the docs said he died of blunt force trauma to the head. But what does that mean? It means that when his car hit the chain link fence in Cali, he slid head first down the fence. When the whole story comes out, it was not the flames that killed Dan, it was the fence that nearly or did tear his head off. Head injuries are the bane of open wheel racing. I would never do it. It is suicide. I prefer 4 wheels and fenders thank-you. Also, I have road raced and raced stock cars for 7 years, so I know a little about the sport. Here is a list of drivers killed in racing. Look at the number. It is astounding. It does not include the 1000′s killed at local race tracks. Solution: It is time to put a plastic dome over Indy cars, make them padded and bigger. Lets end this crap.

People in Boulder drive like idiots: cars bikes and scooters

1

Oh My God. I just got back from Sun Flower Market and with in a period of 15 minutes 5 people nearly drove into me.

As I drove down a parking lane in the Sun Flower lot a girl on a light green scooter came blasting toward me nearly hitting me and two other cars in the process. She wasn’t stopping for shit and everybody yelled at her.

On the way down Folsom I was making a right turn onto Canyon and noticed a road bike in my right mirror. I was going to make the turn and then thought “ you know, this guy isn’t going to stop..he is going to keep coming and pass me on the right”….and’ surin than  shit’ he did…head down, head up ass, pissed off look….fuck! I almost killed him.  This happens to me about once a week in Boulder.

Then as I headed east on Canyon in the left hand turn lane following traffic, some guy behind me got into a road rage incident with another car and proceeded to screech his brakes right next to me trying to force the other guy off the road.

At 28th and Jay road with the coast clear, I made a left turn out of the left turn lane and a CRX came blasting through at about 70 mph nearly hitting me. He looked at me with one of those, what’s your problem?  I started up again and a guy in a BMW SUV jumped out of his left turn lane coming from the other direction. He shot into the intersection almost hitting my car and the one behind me.   He locked em up and slid sideways.

How many of us go through this shit every day here in Boulder? I know it’s Sunday but Jesus H. Christ!  I like to flash my hi beams at people when they do stupid shit. Then when I get their attention, I shake my finger at them in a scolding manner. That’s better than giving them the middle finger. They feel like their 3rd grade teacher just scolded them.

DEA begin busts in Denver Boulder you are NEXT

0

DEAJust as I reported last week. The DEA is here and they  taking prisoners.  Last week I reported that the DEA would do in Colorado what they did in California. It has begun. Boulder is next for busts and jail for illegal Marijuana  drug dealing operators. Better known as Medical Marijuana Dispensaries these drug dens have been a thorn in the side of the US attorney and the DEA.

The city of Boulder thinks it is above the law and it is about to find out what a roust of city hall feels like. 

“DENVER (CBS4) – Federal drug agents have busted a medical marijuana dispensary in Adams County and have charged three people accused of running the business and another who owned a warehouse where pot was allegedly being grown..”

“Our federal government, which is supposed to serve us, the people of Colorado, instead declares war on us and somehow has the recourses to go against a harmless medicinal plant,” medical marijuana attorney Robert Corry said. “We are keeping our own house in order in Colorado and then the federal government comes in and basically declares war on the government of our state.”

Well, Corry I got news form you: Some of us are glad , glad glad the DEA is busting you drug dealing dirt ball scum. As far as I’m concerned everyone who authorized these Dope dealing gangsters belong in Federal penitentiary. Why? Cause they sold drugs to children and turned a lot of our kids in to drug addicts.

For those of you who are wondering what is up with my anti drug attitude. I got started in broadcasting as an anti drug dealing crusader way back in 1987. The DEA  are heros . Thanks for doing what you do and good hunting here in Boulder.

 

FLASH: This morning, on Sunday Morning, on CBS, a feature on “pill mills” or pain clinics showed that this year, 2011, deaths by drug over dose surpassed death by automobiles. This is astounding. When I first reported on this topic in 1987 drunk driving deaths far exceeded drug overdoses. Drunk driving deaths have not gone down.

In 2009 I went after Dr Jacks pain clinics here in Boulder. But it was only this morning that the national news have finally done a story on drug overdose epidemic caused by pain clinics.  It is now all over the country and it is legal. What have we done?

The supreme Court taking up language on B-Cast TV

0

A lot of misinformation goes on concerning the FCC s regulation of TV.  First off the FCC has almost no regs concerning language on cable TV. This is often mis understood . Boulder has been a perfect example of fucked up politicians on city council trying to regulate free speech on public access TV. They caused such a mess and blamed me and a few other artists, that the shut down public access tv.

Now we have Educational access TV which is highly censored by the school board and de facto the city of Boulder.  Of course the FCC nor the Boulder city council have any say in the Internet, this column, anything said or performed on Jann Scott Live my internet TV show.

Youtube of course censors based on this thing they call community standards. Read> if they don’t like what you say you are gone from You Tube. This happens quite a lot with You tube, but  is rarely reported.

The supreme Court will be taking up a case where they will discuss whether or not you will be able to say bad words on Broadcast TV after 10pm. It will probably pass.

But we still walk on thin ice in this country when it comes to freedom of speech. There are all sorts of people, groups and group think that frown on it. Twitter, You tube and Face book are 3 powerful media outlets who control how you interact.  The are all dangerous.

But I have seen enough to be wary. Especially the Hitler Youth of Social media. People like Andrew Hyde and his ilk who seek to control media. Or that Red Head writer. They drink the cool aide. meaning they are the cry baby controls.

Boulder hacking, Iran, Steve Jobs, Banning cars on campus. by Jann Scott

0

Iran and Islamic Middle East more trouble than we care to admit  Conventional wisdom now says the Obamaadministrations should have supported the Iranian middle class protesters back in 2009. Remember? They started the revolution in the middle East. When students were being murdered in  the  streets, President Obama said he wanted to negotiate and would not back the students. That has changed now in the middle east and we are supporting all revolutions. But Iran has to be dealt with. They cannot be allowed to develop nuclear weapons. Mostly because they have a crazy Ayatollah who would use nuke against us. They have said as much.

They Took Our JobsSteve Jobs passing brought an unusual strong reaction from some techies here in Boulder. We found fighting and sniping about Jobs going on inside of Boulder Start-up tech community. This community is notoriously humorless, thoughtless, judgmental and rude. They will be the subject of some TV shows by me on cyber bullying. They are the worst. Just last week i was threatened again by one of these jack asses. keep it up.

Hacking and Christopher Cheney Boulder is also a subject of FBI and local law enforcement investigations when it comes to hacking.  Christopher Cheney is the latest geek arrested for hacking into celeb email and bank accounts.  I have been hacked here and have an on going FBI investigation into the Boulder techies who did it.  Beyond me the Boulder kid t

ech community supports this criminal activity as does the city of Boulder in its backing of Start-Up Boulder. Other companies involved in sponsored hacking include Trada and Tech Stars who have held advertised hacking events. FBI and Boulder DA tell me they are all under investigation for sponsoring illegal hacking events.  They FBI arrested hundreds of people nationwide last spring including some Boulderites for financial hacking.  Boulder DA’s office tell me that they have sophisticated equipment and an FBI agent in the DA’s office to target Boulder hackers. The Denver FBI office has the most sophisticated anti hacking office in the country. Good. I am sick of these people.

Banning cars on the CU Boulder campus? It’s about time. I have been advocating banning cars from Boulder all together since 1995. We are all dead from air pollution any way, but it couldn’t hurt to get the cars they hell out of town. Ride a bike. Take an electric cab. Dive an electric golf cart. walk . Take an electric bus. Stay the hell home. ( joke)

Occupy Boulder, Really?

0

Lets look at the issues:

Corporations, Are they really bad. If you are a communist they are bad. Communists want everything to be controlled by the state. Look how well that worked out for Russia and China. They switched their economic systems to model after American Capitalism.

Corporate Person hood. Is it evil? By definition corporations take on the characteristics of a person. But corporations exist to protect individual share holders, officers, workers, and managers. A corporation is an entity. Now in Boulder the communists want the federal government to end Corporate Person hood. Why? so that the proponents of anti capitalism will gain power is my take.  When I see Regina Cowles an avowed Communist , head of NOW ( a communist radical organization of women) trying to get our children to vote out corporations, it makes my head spin.

Occupy Boulder? Why bother?  What’s wrong with Boulder? How about nothing. Everything is right about Boulder. The economy is good. There are plenty of Jobs. Capitalism is at work. The Commies are happy here. There are plenty of government jobs supported by American capitalism. There are more corporate and government jobs here than we know what to do with. Everybody is rich here. The Entrepreneurs are making money hand over fist. Start up “corporations” are flourishing. We are in fact a hot bed of rich American capitalists with communist ideals. But just try to take our money. No I don’t think Boulder wants to do away with Corporate Person hood and neither do you, if you plan on continuing to eat at the Kitchen.

The Kitchen, The St. Julien  These very hip, very left speak easys are Bastions of Boulder super Capitalism. The men who opened these two establishments made millions dare I say billions off the American Capitalist system. Do you think they want to do away with Capitalism and corporations?? Bullshit.

Boulder Weeklies Pam White is a communist But do you think Boulder weekly is a collective News Paper?? Think again. It is owned by Stewart Gallo and he runs it with an Iron Fist.  Pam White may try to sell ” shared wealth” to you and Stewart Gallo may let her have her say in “Uncensored” but Boulder weekly is all about the money. All about advertising revenus. All about consumerism. All about the sell. All about perception. They fucking want to stay in business and their advertisers better get results or its all over for Pam and the other writers there.

So what’s the problem with Wall Street?  Well, nothing really. We have had financial markets in this country since our birth…even before out birth. If there weren’t banks and financial institutions to finance our homes, cars , business’s, our float, international credit, commercial lines of credit, we, my friends would descend into chaos, anarchy, civil war, starvation in a heart beat. So none of that is ever going to happen. The American Capitalist system is here to stay and “it ain’t never going away, bucky”

It’s the Banks  I agree the investment bankers, hedge funders, the traders who leveraged our money market savings, who sold us short “literally” are the scum who should be charged, tried and executed by firing squad in front of the New York Stock Exchange. We used to do that sort of thing in this country. Maybe we should bring it back.

But for you to blame Wall Street because you can’t find a job, or you took out a dumb student loan is they wrong way Jose’ Speaking of Jose, he loves it here in Boulder. He has plenty of work because the privileged white American kids don’t want to work. Now stop complaining and stop blaming and go to work. Make something happen.
