    Sex, Religion, and Surviving Purity Culture

    in Current Events

    Chante and Charley will be joined tonight by Dana Smith, a survivor of "purity culture" programming. We'll discuss religion and sexuality and how we each had to find an alternative to the standard religious dogmas. You can read Dana's blog at http://cactusblossoms.wordpress.com

    In her blog post, "an out of line obituary," Dana talks about her obsession with purity advocate Elisabeth Elliott's books and the way they reinforced her emotional insecurities about her body and sexuality, while living under the scrutiny of heteronormative, conservative evangelical leadership.

    Third Eye Cinema 7/13/14 w James Murphy of Death, Obituary, Cancer & Testament

    in Entertainment

    This week on Third Eye Cinema: a true legend in death metal, the one and only James Murphy!

    The first, and perhaps only true guitar hero in the death metal genre, James debuted as a touring member of classic speed metallers Agent Steel, and in short order found himself performing on a number of key albums in the glory days of death metal: Death's Spiritual Healing, Obituary's Cause of Death, Cancer's Death Shall Rise, and his own Disincarnate with Dreams of the Carrion Kind, as well as being a ubiquitous guest soloist on any number of albums recorded by legendary producer Scott Burns at Florida's Morrisound studios!

    After appearing on a few well respected records from Bay Area thrashers Testament, James turned his hand towards a pair of solo records and a new career in production, before hitting a devastating setback no one could have predicted.  

    Now back on track and working as both producer and musician on a number of projects (including a planned Disincarnate album!), we chat with James about everything from soup to nuts, from his earliest days in music through the heyday of death metal and right up to the present day!

    Join us as we speak to James Murphy, only here on Third Eye Cinema!

    Week 85 (Sun. July 13) with James Murphy of Death, Obituary, Cancer, Testament and Disincarnate

    Your Family Name Was Not Changed at Ellis Island - Kenneth A. Bravo, JD

    in History

    Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.

    There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island.  Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.

    When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying.  When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States.  He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored.  Finally the Times responded.  They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue.  The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story.  He located about half a dozen.  After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.

    Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.  He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland.  Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.

    Honoring Your Legacy: What Will You Be Remembered For?

    in Women

    In journalism class, one of our first assignments was to write our obituary. It was a task that got one to think about ones life and achievements, and what's really important in life. Some legendary men and women have chosen this time to make their transition, and as we honor their lives we reflect on what we learned from them, and what we will create that honors their legacy. We are the people we have been waiting for to come and change the world. So today's assignment is to write your own obituary. What will be said about YOU at your home going ceremony? Whose lives did you touch with your work? Who have you left behind to carry on your vision?
