Take a fascinating journey into moviemaking history with special effects guru Ed Kramer. Remember the droid factory and fiery lava planet in Star Wars II & III? How about the skittering scarab beetles in The Mummy? The Quidditch course in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets? The Kraken in Pirates of the Carribbean II? The Rock Monster in Galaxy Quest? The weather & dramatic ocean effects in Twister, Deep Impact and The Perfect Storm? The T-Rex in Jurassic Park II? The multiplying puppies in 101 Dalmations? And how about the mischievous monkeys in Jumanji?
All of these memorable movie experiences and many more are the work of visual effects expert Ed Kramer. A Senior Technical Director and Visual Effects Artist at Industrial Light and Magic for many years, Ed has been an integral part of making movie magic for some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, including being part of visual effects teams winning the visual effects Academy Award in 2006 (for Pirates of the Carribbean II) and being nominated for four others. He has also done a significant amount of work for television, including Stargate SG-I and he animated the Columbia Pictures Lady with a Torch logo.
Ed's presentations on the history of visual effects are fascinating, and he has worked with many of the industry's top directors. Ed is now a professor teaching the next generation of VFX artists and still actively works in the visual effects industry.

Every Sunday at 6:30 PM EST, Dr. Lord Grantham Taylor, Hughes J.d., L.c.m.D., Ph.D. (Grantham), explores the 1930 Geneva Convention International bankruptcy and its contemporary effects on our society. He also analyses the necessity of his four foundation bankruptcy platform planks of health, sovereignty, solvency, and afianchetto. These planks include talking about bankruptcy money issues, e.g., Federal Reserve exemption account accessable fees which help those in need along with detailed information regarding all currency.
Grantham, having been a contracts expert for many years is presently a retired trust lawyer with his family as the eminent Bauer-Rothschild clan that gleans his Lordship as one Baron von Bauer-Rothschild. That credibility and his Self-Realization experience in India many years ago displays his particular brand of intelligently illuminating yet glib presentation. Along with his journalist "side-kick" Gabriella Foster, they bring a fun atmosphere to seemingly lugubrious salient subjects effecting our world today. Come join this "dynamic duo" and learn about important information necessary in negotiating our way in a venue of confusion at times. Clear and cogent insightfulness genuinely will enable many to free themselves from the political ignorance around them. Much of this ignorance remains the problem of not knowing the Uniform Commercial code (UCc) and its lawful presence in the international courts. We know that the courts remain mostly in denial of the UCc. Grantham explains rightfully so as of the bankruptcy embarrassment and potential handgun revolution concern. He adds that provocative positions are unnecessary and working together gathering wisdom instead of adversarialism. Again, join this perfect recumbentibus team extrapolating a more powerfully pithy political posture found nowhere else.

COMING UP SATURDAY ON LAC 101. May 2nd, 2015 @ 4PM MST/PST, 6PM CST & 7PM EST- ..Join Empress T to welcome Sis. Idyllic Bode Howard to the show to discuss "Witchcraft & Manipulation in the Church House."
"Let's learn how to save ourselves instead of waiting on someone to do it for us..." Empress T
ABOUT THE HOST: Life After Christianity 101 was created by radio host Empress T'Malkia Zuri in 2012 on her own blogtalk network "Dynasty Network 1382." She began her radio career on a Christian radio station in Phoenix, AZ KXXT 1010. After refusing to "dumb down" her topics, a mutual agreement was met and Empress T was released from the contract after refusing to conform to their request.
Empress T is a recovering Christian who is 36 months clean after 44 years of indoctrination, and celebrates her sobriety date on Dec. 27th. She has devoted much of her time to sharing what she has learned about the mental effects of Christianity in the Black Family. She is a former National licensed Minister under one of the largest churches in the U.S, a former Armour Bearer to 2 pastors and a bishop, and a former Sunday School and bible teacher. Empress T is also entering her second year (in June) as a student at the University of Metaphysics in Arizona and is obtaining a degree in Transpersonal Psychology.
Empress T's main objective is "NOT to CONVERT our people, but to PROVOKE our people to think and study for themselves". Remember....Her tagline is REVERSING THE CURSE OF RELIGION, and her main point is to remind all who tune in that YOU ARE THE VERY GOD YOU ARE SEEKING.
