#1 Noelle Mason - Nothing much happened today (for Eric and Dylan) - 32” x 40” 

This cross-stitched work combines a pixelated image from Columbine High School’s cafeteria surveillance camera taken during the April 20, 1999 massacre, with a process related to domesticity. The artist’s massive five-year endeavour captures the iconic image representing 1/30 of a second of the event.

Noelle Mason - Love Letters/White Flag: The Book of God

A series of 39 vintage handkerchiefs embroidered with excerpts from Eric Harris’ journal. 

Wow, this is gorgeous. I should get off my ass and finish the one I was working on.

If you want to see a cringe-worthy 90’s movie about severe stalking that ends in an amazing mass shooting, this is for you!

The guy even reloads his shotgun after six shots, it’s amazing.

Good job Lifetime, you made entertaining movies at one point.

Qued up along with all the other movie references I got from reading Adam’s SBB posts. At least Bloody Wednesday was fun, and Bullet Time was pretty good for it’s budget. Already saw “God told me to” (don’t bother, just watch Laser Mission or something) years ago when they were still doing Beyond Midnight, now I just have to watch “They call her one eye”, “Targets”, “Two minute warning”, “Killer Clowns from outer space”, “Don’t go in the house”, and “Duck! The carbine high massacre”, then and only then will I truly understand Adam.

Well, it’s day 15 now. There has been no sign of Eric Frein since Wednesday, and when he is spotted, it’s always at night. He then seems to disappear when he’s discovered.
The authorities are calling him a coward, but I don’t think he is. If he were a coward he’d be shooting at them this whole time and disappearing again, (he totally could if he wanted) or preying on the residents. I don’t think they fully understand that he’s not giving up yet, and in his mind he’s not being cowardly, he’s testing his skill.
Authorities and anyone involved have orders to shoot to kill if he does not surrender.
He’s just out there, doin’ it big, go big or go home, etc. Yeah.
Damn.

Of course they call him a coward, they’re hypocrites; cops bust down doors and shoot people without warning all the time, our government has spent the last 70 years or so dropping bombs on people without warning, we’ve funded countless insurgencies around the world and trained people to do the exact same thing Frein is doing now. We called the Contras heroic and their style of fighting clever and ingenious, yet when the VC were doing it we called it pathetic, immoral, illegitimate and cowardly. We’re like the British in the revolutionary war; calling the enemy cowardly for not fighting “properly” and getting in a line to fire in volleys. They would call Frein a “freedom fighter” if he was doing what he’s doing in a country we oppose, they call him a “coward” and a “terrorist” only because he’s fighting the U.S. government.
* I just noticed, in this photo Frein is doing the Dylan Klebold wave.

IMPORTANT AND DISGUSTING, EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS:

Columbine High School is a culture where initiation rituals meant upperclass wrestlers twisted the nipples of freshman wrestlers until they turned purple and tennis players sent hard volleys to younger teammates’ backsides. Sports pages in the yearbook were in color, a national debating team and other clubs in black and white. The homecoming king was a football player on probation for burglary.

All of it angered and oppressed Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, leading to the April day when they staged their murderous rampage here, killing 13 and wounding 21.

Their perspective is adolescent and simplistic, but dozens of interviews and a review of court records suggest that Harris’s and Klebold’s rage began with the injustices of jocks. The pair knew of instances where athletes convicted of crimes went without suspension from games or expulsion from school. They witnessed instances of athletes tormenting others while school authorities looked the other way. They believed that high-profile athletes could finagle their way out of jail.
In one episode, they saw state wrestling champion Rocky Wayne Hoffschneider shoving his girlfriend into a locker, in front of a teacher, who did nothing, according to a close friend. “We used to talk about Rocky a lot,” said the friend, who asked not to be identified. “We’d say things like ‘He should be in jail for the stuff he does.’ ” Another friend of Klebold’s, Andrew Beard, remembers distinctly Klebold’s rage at four football players’ “getting off” after destroying a man’s apartment last year.
Hoffschneider, who graduated last year and works in the Denver area at a construction company, declined to answer detailed questions. But he said in a brief interview that he never knew the killers and that any suggestion he escaped punishment for his misdeeds was erroneous.

Harris and Klebold were preoccupied with Hoffschneider, who became for many at Columbine a symbol of athletes’ runaway sovereignty. On his Web site, Harris singled out Hoffschneider in the following passage: “LIARS!!!OH GAWWWWWWD I HATE LIARS… . Why must people lie so much! Especially about stupid things! Like … . my brand new hummer just broke down on the highway when I was going 250mph.’”
Athletes’ torment of Harris and Klebold personally also was a factor. This past year, they and friend Brooks Brown were outside school when a carload of athletes, wearing their trademark white caps, threw a bottle at them, which shattered at their feet. Brown recalled Klebold saying, “Don’t worry, man, it happens all the time.”
Recalling many conversations with Harris and Klebold over the three years he knew them, Brown now feels the shooting “had to do with the injustice in our society and in the school.”
“We all hated it — hated the fact we were outcasts just simply because we weren’t in sports,” Brown said. “It’s insane when you think about it, but it’s real.”

With the first media bulletins of the shootings, Stephen Greene was on his car phone, calling a school hotline about his son’s safety. He got voice mail and screamed out a message: “I knew something like this in this school could happen.”
Greene’s sense of foreboding dates to 1996, the year Hoffschneider transferred to Columbine after being expelled from a private school for fighting. He had other blemishes on his record — a 1992 arrest for criminal mischief and a 1995 arrest relating to a “missing person.” As juvenile cases, their outcomes were sealed.
The summer before Hoffschneider entered Columbine, his girlfriend’s parents alleged in court papers that Hoffschneider’s mother and sister kicked in their door one morning. Edmund Lemieux, the girl’s father, said the Hoffschneider family “was abusive and physical towards us.”
“It was a serious situation at the school,” he said. Lemieux said he and his wife kept three of their children from attending Columbine when they learned that Hoffschneider — a 215-pound football player who would go on to become a two-time state champion in wrestling — had transferred to their children’s school. Calls to the Hoffschneider family were not returned.
Within a month of school opening in the fall of 1996, Hoffschneider and another football player were teasing Stephen Greene’s son Jonathan, who is Jewish. Their favorite gambit was singing about Hitler when he made a basket in gym class, Greene recalls. The gym teacher, Craig Place, who was also Hoffschneider’s wrestling coach, did nothing, Greene said.
“They pinned him on the ground and did ‘body twisters,’ ” Greene said. “He got bruises all over his body. Then the threats began — about setting him on fire and burning him.”
Greene went to Place, DeAngelis and his son’s guidance counselor. “They said, ‘This stuff can happen.’ They looked at me like I was a problem,” he said. Greene called the school board, which notified the police. Hoffschneider and the other athlete were charged with harassment, kicking and striking, court records show, and sentenced to probation. But Hoffschneider was allowed to continue his football and wrestling.
He also attracted a following. “He created a tough little group of guys — probably seven or eight boys that were involved in sports, mostly football, wrestling, who began to take control of the school,” said parent Cecelia Buckner. “They all wore white hats.”

One of the group was Anthony A. Pyne, a 230-pound football player with a tribal band tattoo on his left arm. (Pyne’s mother said her son would not comment, on the advice of his attorney.) After Christmas, Pyne began to tease Aundrea Harwick in English class about her breasts. Harwick went to the teacher, Tom Tonelli, who was also a Columbine football and wrestling coach. He suggested she move to a different seat.
A similar event happened at a Columbine wrestling match at Arvada High School. Pyne, “in front of everyone,” said Harwick, broadcast to all within earshot: ” ‘Her breasts are getting bigger.’ They’re laughing — the jocks were.” She told Coach Place; he told her to sit on the other side of the gym.
She then went to a woman at a concession stand, who called the Arvada police. The officer issued Pyne a ticket. Because he was a juvenile, court records are not available, but Harwick said he pleaded guilty and paid a $50 fine.
The next day at school, administrator Rich Long, trying to persuade the girl to drop the charges, told Harwick and her mother that “by her going and getting the police, she’s ruining his possibilities of playing on the football team,” Elissa Harwick recalled. Pyne played football anyway.****

"The next day at school, administrator Rich Long, trying to persuade the girl to drop the charges, told Harwick and her mother that “by her going and getting the police, she’s ruining his possibilities of playing on the football team,” Elissa Harwick recalled."

As usual, a boy’s after-school sports activity is considered more important than a girls comfort, education or safety. Nothing.ever.fucking.changes.

I’m not afraid to admit that I disliked the ending to Bang Bang You’re Dead.

It was good though overall, but that end part though, I dunno. Maybe I’m just a bitter jerk, who knows.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I didn’t like it. It’s better than elephant in that it has a plot, but that’s about it. All the issues I had with the movie are summed up pretty well in this review here: http://aytiws.com/2010/05/bang-bang-youre-dead-2002/

Jillian Robbins, from Wikipedia:

"The lawn was the site of the 1996 shooting that resulted in the death of Melanie Spalla, a 21 year-old undergraduate journalism student from Altoona. The perpetrator of the shooting, Jillian Robbins, was a 19 year-old non-student resident of State College. At approximately 9:30 AM on September 17, Robbins was positioned outdoors at the northwest corner of the HUB Lawn, where the HUB pool room now stands. She fired five shots in the general direction of College Avenue using a 7 mm Mauser rifle. Nicholas Mensah, a 22 year-old student from Ghana, was also wounded in the shooting, but was not killed.

Of the five bullets fired, two struck victims, one was recovered at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, and another on the eighth floor of Penn Tower Apartments. The fifth was found on the ground. On their paths, two of the bullets grazed two students’ book bags.

At that morning hour, during the middle of a class period, there were few students on the lawn, and police managed to identify only 15 witnesses. One of these witnesses, student Brendon Malovrh, is credited with wrestling the gun away from Robbins just after she loaded a second clip. In response, she pulled out a knife and attempted to stab Malovrh. When Malovrh dodged out of the way, Robbins accidentally stabbed herself in the thigh, after which Malovrh used his belt to try to stop her bleeding. Robbins was arrested at the scene, and Mensah and Robbins were taken to Centre Community Hospital for treatment following the shooting.

Following her arrest, Robbins spent six months in Norristown State Hospital, an in-patient psychiatric hospital that treats both voluntary and court-committed patients. Robbins never offered a reason for her actions, but did say that she had intended to kill herself that day. She later plead not guilty by reason of insanity.”

What did Eric and Dylan drink? What were there favs?

ericharrisblog answered:

Well Eric in his journal he wrote he wrote he drank Tequilla and Irish Cream in his flask. But they drank almost everything. The non alcohol drink Eric said in his survey he liked coke and Dylan liked Dr. Pepper.

Dylan wrote about drinking a screwdriver once (vodka and orange juice), and is of course well known for drinking straight vodka, but I don’t know if he particularly liked it or just got the nickname because he could stomach it better than most.

Buck Hill Inn, the abandoned hotel where officers have searched for Eric Frein, and turned up nothing. This is just amazing, though…I’m wondering if this is where he went when he used his phone, and I wonder who he called?

lol, maybe Eric Frein not only was a reenactor but an Urban Explorer. I’m surprised this place doesn’t have a thread on UER yet, it looks gorgeous.
