The screenings take place either in the participants apartments or in the organizers pad, and the producers use these sessions to decide what goes into their movies. The scenes are straight, gay and everything in between, 120-plus of them a week. The organizer instructs the participants, 'If you need to pleasure yourself at some point in the film, do it. "One of the questions is, 'At what point did you ejaculate?'

Back in the day, it was rumored that the late actor Raymond St. Jacques would travel to appear in movies and he also traveled to Brazil to "adopt" an beautiful (exotic) underage boy he renamed Sterling; did he pay for him?  No one knows.


He was also pictured with another underage boy regarding a charitable cause and he allegedly expressed interest in "adopting" him as well but the story quickly disappeared.  St. Jacques was  allegedly, the first to host men only ___parties.  His mansion was populated with young hot men from every race when he was in town.


The following incident happened in Iran yet there is no documentation of St. Jacques ever filming a movie in Iran.  Was he on location to scout and adopt another exotic looking boy?


In 1975, Raymond St. Jacques nearly escaped death when the roof of the Teheran, Iran airport collapsed from the weight of snow.

J.T. Taylor joined Kool and the Gang in 1978 and a year later, was the lead singer.

According to He later declared bankruptcy. But one of his creditors was Polygram records who questioned the debts given that the contracts were unusual in that they were for personal services. James Taylor was, after all, one of a kind. The individual singers had formed a corporation, Quintet Associates, Inc. They also created Fresh Start Music, Inc. through which song publishing was funneled. Road Gang Enterprises, Inc. was formed to furnish the group's services in connection with concerts and tours. T.W.M. Management Services Ltd. was created to act as primary holding company, to receive all of the income of Kool And The Gang, and to pay the individual musicians.

There was a quagmire of holding companies and contracts to sort out. Welcome to Hollywood. The problem was that the musicians eventually owed $1.5 million in loans on advances made to them from time to time. They were taking out much more than what was going in. They were spending $339,000 a month.

By 1986, the total debts were over $1.7-million. Taylor had personally guaranteed most of them. Still Polygram advanced Kool and the Gang $1.1-million in 1986-1987, the second advance.

When the group held its regular business meeting in December of 1987, they were told that their debt had reached $3.3-million. And foreclosures had begun against group members (homes).

Taylor bailed. He quit the band and declared bankruptcy. Polygram opposed the bankruptcy petition believing that Taylor had it in him to pay his debts through a solo career.

The lawyers met in United States Bankruptcy Court in 1998, before Justice William Tuohey who sided with Taylor. Let the man be cleansed, he decided:

"(T)he motions of PolyGram … to dismiss the pending bankruptcy proceeding … are denied."

Polygram appealed to the United States Court of Appeals, but the appeal was dismissed.

'She Remains Unidentified Like The Real Life Assassin In "Day of The Jackal.'


History is littered with cases of people who have mysteriously disappeared, but what are less common are the cases that go the other way around. What of people who mysteriously appear, with no known identity and no clues as to where they came from? What do we make of these enigmatic people who emerge from obscurity and into our world without explanation or any hint of who they are, as if they had never existed at all? One case from Norway certainly poses this question; a dead woman with no known background, no known previous history, no known killer, and an identity that has remained shrouded in mystery to this day.

In Bergen, Norway, also known as Norway’s “Death Valley,” an unidentified woman was found dead. The body was stumbled upon by a professor out for a day of hiking with his two daughters, on a remote hiking trail obscured by some jagged rocks. The woman was naked, and the horrified hikers were able to ascertain that the body was partially charred. Scattered about the corpse were found an empty bottle of liquor, a packed lunch, around a dozen pink sleeping pills strewn about, and two bottles full of gasoline. Police would later discover a badly burned passport in the vicinity as well. The hikers called the Bergen police, and an investigation was mounted, sparking one of the most perplexing and mysterious criminal cases in Norway’s history, and indeed in the world.


The initial autopsy ruled that the mystery woman had died of a combination of carbon monoxide poisoning and burns, and a blood analysis showed evidence that a large amount of sleeping pills had been taken before death. On the woman’s neck was a serious bruise that suggested some sort of blunt force trauma to the neck. An odd feature of the body was that the woman’s fingerprints had been completely sanded off. At the time, although the removed fingerprints were certainly odd, it seemed like a pretty open and shut case. The woman, whoever she was, had obviously gone out into the forest and committed suicide via sleeping pills, simple as that. Yet the mystery would only deepen from there.


Police eventually linked the woman to two suitcases they found at a Bergen train station, and the contents turned up several odd finds. For one, all fingerprints had been meticulously, and obviously intentionally, removed. A look at the clothing contained within the suitcases showed that all of the labels had been taken off of every single item, and that the garments were of an elegant Italian design. There was also a prescription for an unidentified lotion, but oddly, the date and the name of the doctor had been removed. Within a hidden lining of the suitcase was found 500 Deutsche Marks. Also found in one of the suitcases was some broken glass that bore partial fingerprints, although they were not enough to glean an identification from. A journal was found among the various belongings as well, but rather than normal entries it contained only a series of incomprehensible codes. Other miscellaneous belongings found in the suitcases included a wig, several eyeglasses with no prescriptions, and silver spoons. There was also a postcard with a picture from a famous Italian photographer.


Puzzled, police decided to make composite sketches of what they believed the woman might look like in life based on the appearance of her corpse and descriptions of witnesses. These sketches were released to a number of news agencies and also given out to INTERPOL in several countries, in the hope of gaining some insight into who she was. Once this was done, eyewitnesses who recognized the woman began to trickle in, and the mystery deepened even further.


It was discovered that the mystery woman had been travelling under nine different aliases; Jenevive Lancia, Claudia Tjelt, Vera Schlosseneck, Claudia Nielsen, Alexia Zarna-Merchez, Vera Jarle, Finella Lorck and Elizabeth Leen Hoywfer, all of which were found to be fake. Some sightings of the woman described her as wearing several different kinds of wigs, and it was claimed that she had been fluent in French, German, English and Flemish. The weird codes that had been found in the journal were deciphered, and proved to be the coordinates of places it was suspected she had visited, encompassing several areas around Norway and Europe. Dental analysis of the corpse showed that she had also had dental work done in Latin America, although this location was not among those found in the journal’s codes.


As for her stay in Bergen, it was found that the woman had stayed in several hotels in the area, and had exhibited rather odd behavior. It was said that she was prone to changing her room several times after checking in, and that at one point she had vehemently insisted on a room with a balcony. Other details were found by checking through check-in records. It was found that she had identified herself as a travelling saleswoman and antiquities dealer, and that the name she had used to check-in with was a false alias. It was also discovered through room service records that the woman had been fond of porridge with milk, a dish that she had ordered at several establishments. The woman was described as being an attractive brunette in her 30s, and around 164cm tall. Witnesses claimed she kept mostly to herself and did not speak to anyone, although one claimed to have overheard her say “Ich komme bald” (“I am coming soon”). She was also described as being somewhat guarded, and that she was a heavy smoker. The final sighting of the woman alive was when she checked out of room 407 of Hotel Marlin, paying cash and then riding off in a taxi.


Weirdly, for all of the witnesses who came forward claiming to recognize the woman from the pictures, not one family member, friend, relative, or anyone who knew her personally made themselves known. The closest thing police got to this was a startling case of serendipity, when it was discovered that the photographer whose postcard had been in the woman’s suitcase had actually taken her out on a dinner date at the Hotel Alexandra in Loen. When questioned about the woman’s identity, the photographer claimed that she had told him she was from a small village near Johannesburg, South Africa, and that she had made the cryptic statement that she had only 6 months to see the most beautiful places in Norway. Although certainly intriguing, this information would ultimately prove to not be particularly useful. Although the photographer had been accused and acquitted of rape in a previous unrelated case, he was not considered a suspect and was sent on his way. In the end, not one person who knew the woman personally came forward, and not one of her various aliases were found to be an actual real name.


The case got even stranger when a man eventually came forward saying that he had seen the woman on 24 November, 5 days before the body was found. The 26 year-old local man claimed that he had been out hiking with friends when they spotted a foreign woman wandering out in the forest. She was described as looking as if she were in a panic, and she had been wearing elegant clothes that were inappropriate for the a day out in the outdoors. When she had passed the group of hikers, the man claimed that she had seemed about to say something to them but suddenly thought better of it and continued on her way, after which a group of somber looking men dressed in black coats, also foreign, passed by, obviously following her. What’s really weird about this account is that it was given 32 years after the actual murder. When pressed on why he had waited so long to come forward, the man related how he had actually contacted authorities soon after he had recognized her face from the INTERPOL drawings at the time, but when they had questioned him he claims to have been told by police “Forget her, she was dispatched. The case will never be solved.”


This case has never been solved, and her identity remains a mystery to this day. There has been no forthcoming evidence and there has never been a suspect for the crime. Although the official statement is that she had committed suicide, the murder has created a great amount of speculation over the years as to her identity and has been the subject of several books. One popular theory is that the woman was a spy, and that she had perhaps been killed after she had gotten in over her head, possibly related to clandestine information or the purchase of radioactive material. Another idea is that she was murdered by someone she was close to for unknown reasons, perhaps jealousy or for money. To this day, no one knows for sure.


Who was this mystery woman? Where did she come from and what did she want? Was this a murder or a suicide? The case remains just as baffling as it did when her body was found. With no new leads, no further evidence, and no suspects, the case has gone totally cold. She remains a nameless enigma with a face only known from phantom police sketches. The case continues to inspire a good deal of debate and speculation to this day, and is surely one of the great crime mysteries of the century.





The above case (of the female spy) has intresting similarities to the Taman Shud Case, also known as The case of the Somerton Man. This occured in 1948 in South Australia. A man was found dead on the beach board walk. No cause of death was determined and the man was never identified. A suitcase was linked to the body, found in a nearby hotel. All labels had been torn out of the clothing in the suitcase, no finger prints, no identification, nothing.


There was a small piece of paper found on the body, hidden in a small pocket in the victims trousers, it had been torn from a book. It read, "Taman Shud."


An individual not related to the case later came forward with a rare copy of the Rubaiyat he had found in the back seat of his car; which was parked near to where the body was found. Someone had deposited the book through his cracked window. Inside the book, on one of the inner covers was a cypher code, which to this day has never been decoded.


There are so many congruencies between these cases. It makes me wonder if they are somehow connected, perhaps the murders; as murders they certainly are, were perpetuated by the same shadow organization.





In 2011, an Adelaide woman contacted Maciej Henneberg about an identification card of a H. C. Reynolds (pictured above) that she had found in her father's possessions. The card, a document issued in the United States to foreign seamen during WWI was given to biological anthropologist Maciej Henneberg in October 2011 for comparison of the ID photograph to that of the Somerton man. While Henneberg found anatomical similarities in features such as the nose, lips and eyes, he believed they were not as reliable as the close similarity of the ear. The ear shapes shared by both men were a "very good" match, although Henneberg also found what he called a "unique identifier;" a mole on the cheek that was the same shape and in the same position in both photographs.

"Together with the similarity of the ear characteristics, this mole, in a forensic case, would allow me to make a rare statement positively identifying the Somerton/Taman Shud man."

The ID card, numbered 58757, was issued in the United States on 28 February 1918 to H.C. Reynolds, giving his nationality as "British" and age as 18. Searches conducted by the US National Archives, the UK National Archives and the Australian War Memorial Research Centre have failed to find any records relating to H. C. Reynolds. The South Australia Police Major Crime Branch, who still have the case listed as open, will investigate the new information.







For nearly a century, a community of successful black businessmen, clergy, and educators flourished in America. This black aristocracy built a nearly self-contained society outside the white world and with limited white assistance. And this group existed in the center of Washington, D.C.

This summer the New York Times ran a devastating three-part series on the city of Washington that confirmed what those who live there already know: the District, particularly in its predominantly black areas, “is falling apart.” Dramatic though it is, this decline is a relatively recent phenomenon. From the turn of the century until the race riots of 1968, Washington contained the largest black professional community in the United States.

By 1920 a 40-block portion of the city, an area now known as the Shaw neighborhood, boasted more than 300 black-owned businesses, including the Ford, Howard, and Dabney movie theaters, a large hotel, three black-owned banks (one, the Industrial Savings Bank, with nearly $500,000 on deposit), black newspapers and pharmacies, a number of successful undertaking businesses, cabarets, billiard clubs, and Ware’s, a black-owned and -managed department store. The Murray Palace Casino, located on U Street, was one of the city’s first concrete-reinforced buildings and could accommodate 1,800 people. The neighborhood rivaled Harlem as a center of American black enterprise and culture. “You had to wear a tie to walk down U Street,” recalls one elderly resident.

Black Washingtonians were proud of what they had created. In 1921 the Washington Bee, the city’s largest black paper, editorialized that the growth of black business in Washington, “more than anything else, marks real and prominent racial progress.” The thriving business district was a symbol of what blacks could achieve. As one longtime resident of the area put it in 1988, “If you were on U Street, you didn’t need to go anywhere else. It was all right there for you. Blacks had a society put together on this street.”

Today, Shaw resembles much of the rest of black Washington: a crumbling inner-city neighborhood of boarded-up buildings, pitted streets, and vagrants. Nearly all its black-owned businesses have gone. The last of Shaw’s major black enterprises—McGuire’s Funeral Home, founded in 1912 and among the most famous black mortuaries in the country—relocated near the Maryland border almost 20 years ago.

Today, the city’s black aristocracy, like the thriving communities it created, exists mostly in memories.







Drawing on interviews with the black survivors of Nazi concentration camps and archival research in North America, Europe, and Africa, this book documents and analyzes the meaning of Nazism's racial policies towards people of African descent, specifically those born in Germany, England, France, the United States, and Africa, and the impact of that legacy on contemporary race relations in Germany, and more generally, in Europe. The book also specifically addresses the concerns of those surviving Afro-Germans who were victims of Nazism, but have not generally been included in or benefited from the compensation agreements that have been developed in recent years.

Since his days as emcee and cape man for music icon James Brown, Danny Ray (above right-and below) has been keeping himself busy.


When he’s not commanding audiences from the stage, Ray enjoys listening to music in his apartment at an Augusta senior citizen community or attending church services. His home is filled with reminders of his decades of worldwide travel with his longtime friend. Hanging on the wall over Ray’s sofa is a painting of him draping a cape across Brown’s back. Also on display are a dancing Brown figurine and handcrafted doll of Ray made by a friend in Japan.


Ray treasures a collection of CDs of performances he emceed for Brown and other musicians, including Revolution of the Mind: Live at the Apollo Vol. III in 1963, James Brown at the Garden, James Brown at the Night of the Proms in 2004, The Official Boot-Legged Bootsy CD: Money Can’t Buy and Ike and Val Woods’ Miami Blues. During his career, Ray also emceed on The Ed Sullivan Show and The T.A.M.I. Show, he said. In 2007, Ray participated in the Grammy Awards’ tribute to the Godfather of Soul by draping Brown’s glittering red cape across a microphone.

Despite Ray’s iconic status in the music industry, he is down to earth.


“He is one of the most humble and nicest men that you ever want to meet. Forty years with James Brown, and you would never know other than him speaking about what he’s done. Just a great guy.


After Brown’s death, Ray hit a rough patch financially, relying solely on his Social Security income. In 2007, his home was foreclosed on and sold because he was eight months behind in his payments. He also owed about $80,000 in federal and state tax liens.


“All these things just started falling apart. All of a sudden, the bottom just dropped out on me. My main source of income dropped off. It was just one of those things that went on, and it happened,” Ray said. “I managed to pull a few things together and try to hold myself together. I’d like to do better and travel a little more, but the guys are still trying to put things together.”


In his collection of Brown memorabilia, Ray has a photograph of his first night as Brown’s emcee.


Ray also has four passports filled with stamps of his travels around the world with Brown. Ray said his last trip with Brown was to Japan.


“I’ve been traveling almost all my life. You sit down for a minute, you look around and say, ‘What are we going to do next?’ I’ve been to Moscow, Hong Kong, you name it. So many days I look back and say, ‘Wow, I’ve been some of everywhere,’” Ray said.


Ray met Brown at the Apollo Theatre in New York in 1960. Originally from Birmingham, Ala., Ray was drafted into the military and, after being discharged, he moved to New York. Ray said he always knew he wanted to work in show business, so he decided to hang out where the action was.


He met some people who worked for Brown, and Brown hired him to take care of the band. Soon afterward, Brown asked Ray if he’d like to work directly for him. Ray was Brown’s valet, selected his wardrobe and helped him get dressed for shows.


“Next thing I know, he had me doing live albums for his stage show. The first time I ever did a live show, it scared me to death. It was up in Maryland. The guy who usually came out to do the show, he didn’t show up. So he asked me, ‘Have you ever been on stage?’ I said, ‘Naw, man.’ He said, ‘Well, uh, tonight’s your night,’ I said, ‘What do you mean tonight’s my night?’” Ray said.


Ray made his debut as emcee in front of a packed arena. He was nervous, but Brown told him that “he could see him up on stage.”


“It was the longest walk going down to that arena. I felt like that mic was going to eat me up. I had never talked to that many people before. There were thousands of people there. When you hear yourself for the first time, that’s another story there. But I got over it, though. I got to looking forward to it,” Ray said.


He can still recite his famous introduction.


“Right about now, it’s star time. Are you ready for star time? Yes! Introducing, ladies and gentlemen, the man who has given the world over 44 golden soul classics, tunes that will never die. Tunes like "Try Me," "Please, Please, Please," "I Feel Good," " Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag," "Sex Machine," "Big Payback," and "Get Up Offa That Thang." I introduce you to the hardest-working man in show biz, ladies and gentlemen, the Godfather of Soul, Mr. James Brown,” Ray said.


Ray moved to Augusta from New York in the mid-1970s. Brown traveled constantly, so it was easier to be close by.


Brown’s daughter Deanna Brown-Thomas said she and her siblings refer to Ray as Uncle Danny.


“Uncle Danny has known me all my life. Dad loved him like a brother. Of course, he loved dad as well,” she said. “People around the world know Danny Ray. He’s very much a legend himself.”


Ray said he treasures his memories of working with Brown and doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon.


“I had a job, and I enjoyed doing it. Every day was an interesting day,” Ray said. “Just to stop and sit down and do nothing, that’s kind of difficult for me.


I’ve been going all my life.”

Anything goes in the Play Room, but only a handful of guys engaged in hard-core action; most just stand around with their d*cks in their hands. Others relax between orgasms, Tip: Keep your shoes on the floors can be slippery due to body fluids.


This female rapper also sets up temporary (female) brothels all over New York.


Who is the black female celebrity?








You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.

Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.


The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic). 


Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."

"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."



Book Review:


I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.

When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.

You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
