This Thursday on Fieldstone Common we will speak with jeweler and curator Sarah Nehama about In Death Lamented, an exhibit about mourning jewelry.
Mourning jewels, tangible expressions of love and sorrow, are the focus of In Death Lamented on view at the Massachusetts Historical Society (MHS) through 31 January 2013. The exhibition features more than 80 objects representing some of the best examples of this type of jewelry. The jewelry included in the exhibition illustrates some of the most exemplary types, from early gold bands with death’s head iconography to bejeweled brooches and the intricately woven hairwork pieces of the Civil War era. Displayed within the larger context of the mourning rites that our New England ancestors brought with them, these relics attest to the basic human emotion of grief and the need to remain connected to those gone before. A full-color companion book, In Death Lamented: The Tradition of Anglo-American Mourning Jewelry features photographs and descriptions of all of the Nehama and MHS pieces, along with historical and stylistic backgrounds and essays pertaining to cultural practices around death and mourning in England and America. About the Guest Curator and Author Sarah Nehama is a designer/jeweler who works in precious metals and gemstones. She sells her work through galleries, at juried shows, and to private customers. Sarah has a degree in art history and studied jewelry making in Boston and New York. She is a collector of antique mourning and sentimental jewelry and currently resides in Boston.

This week on Death By DVD Hank and Nash discuss the wonderfully violent "Death WIsh" series and bring up great facts, like : Charles Bronson was one of the coolest men ever, and : Jughead is a rapist! I wonder how Betty and Veronica feel about that..
Stick around until the end of the show, where we will discuss Jeff Goldblum and his recent work of starting The Fourth Reich.
We at Death By DVD recently were asked by a fan why we never use the movies title as the name of our new episodes! Well, that's a great question. Ya see, Hank and Nash like to come up with something creative, and alluring, something that will drag you in and make you want to listen to an episode. For example, the classic fan favorite : "You And A Monkey Started Aids!" where the boys discussed the Quintin Dupieux film "Rubber"
Huh.. Alright, we get your point. WELL, on this episode of Death By DVD we're going to be discussing the classic 1974...Uhhhh...Uhmm.. Ah, just tune in!
Millions of people through the ages have experienced a phenomenon call life after death. Today, thanks to Mr. Moody we know it as near death experience. I've experienced this mystery as well.
On my first show scheduled June 2, 2014 I will be telling you about my near death experience and what I experienced after death. I hope that you would listen in and or call in if you would like to share your experience.
The mystery of near-death experience is a highly discussed subject in our society. Many philosophies explaining the near-death experience would seem to be relative. When I was looking up the subject on the Internet, I was amazed to find so many theories and conjecture.
I would like to offer another explanation of the near-death experience based on my own past experiences and I put them into context that you can understand. I am going to explain to you what near death experience is and what near death experience is not.
There are alot of things we do not understand, because we view things from one-sidedness instead of looking at a situation from more than one angle. To understand what I am saying you must take on this mentality...
“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth”
Despite being two highly trained weird-o horror-watchin'-monster-mad-men, this week on Death By DVD Hank and Nash return to talk about Netflix, FOR THE THIRD TIME! You know what that means?! That means they didn't put together any actual ideas for something of quality that they could discuss, so the boys will go through their accounts and rattle of nonsense.
If this write up doesn't appeal to you, don't feel bad. But just remember you're the reason why children get cancer.

Death is a flowing membrane of consciousness, a force that one must pass in order to "graduate" or ascend to the next level with continuity of consciousness.

Just when you thought it was safe to listen to a podcast.. Death By DVD returns!
This week the boys discuss a film they have referenced endlessly throughout the years, but haven't actually discussed! So, we proudly present thirty minutes of Hank and Nash rambling about the glory of Jaws, and the increasingly bad sequels.
Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again....
Staff Sergeant M. David Davis, USA (ret.), is a decorated combat veteran, military advisor & nuclear weapons specialist. He is also a soldier dying within months. Not in the line of duty, but death due to negligence. His death will be as a result of the Veterans Administration doctors who misdiagnosed his illness.
According to SSG Davis, during “the last 10 years, I have been seen by the VA for sores which they gave me antibiotic creams & antibiotics by mouth with never having a biopsy. Last fall, I complained again to the VA & I was told, "Maybe warts or have I ever had HIV." In February, I complained to the VA again and told my VA doctor who refused the records and the civilian doctor’s card to call. The VA doctor said, “I do not want an outside opinion and would not call.” After much complaining about a cyst on the right side of my face the doctor planned to have it taken out.
Two days later I was diagnosed with metastases malignant melanoma, stage 4. Further tests revealed, 6 tumors in left lung, 2 tumors in right lung, tumors in breast, neck and other areas. During my last meeting with the VA Oncologist, he would not offer me chemo or radiation because it would do no good. I asked for referrals to civilian organizations and or experimental treatment. My answer was. “The VA does not do referrals or will help me get into any research at civilian or pay any expenses”
The final result is I am looking for my own burial sites. I was not referred to social services at the VA to help me. So what is the outcome? I fought for my country and my country brings me home to die in its own government sponsored hospitals. If I had been properly diagnosed, referred, and or a simple biopsy performed ten years ago I would not be dying and I would be able to watch my children marry and grandchildren grow.”
