  1. First I want to give you my condolences on the passing of your father.  Know that only his flesh is out of your reach, but his spirit, his person, and his love remains forever.  He will always be just a thought away.  You can even call him to you.  Spirits move at the speed of thought.  I often sense the presence of so many loved ones, especially my parents, son (2008), my ex, the kid's father (Sept 2019), as they minister to us.

    Yep, I'm one of those fans that thought the crossover was pitiful.  Anything or anyone would have been better than FBI zombies.  What were they thinking?  At least Mark can bail them out with his music, that definitely fits the episode.  He is such a genius.

    Thanks again Alex and I pray we all have a blessed new year.  We need it after surviving 2019.   :23:  :hug:

  2. Even though I am a proud owner of the album, again, I listened to your post multiple times.  Mark Snow is addicting.

    Midnight of the Century truly is a fan favorite, especially for those of us whose parents have crossed over.  This episode brought us love and healing, and we couldn't ask for anything more.

    Thanks again Alex.   :23:  :hug:

  3. Wow, what a variety of sounds, and yes, very haunting, eerie, and if there was a soft and warming section, I didn't hear it.  Lots of "wonder" in the sounds.

    I have 3 Suites on my S5 Promo album, but each one of those is 9-10 minutes long.  Is this 2 of the 3?

    Thanks again Alex.    :23:  :hug:

    For his score Mark used operatic vocal samples, providing a magical touch to the music. Mark mixes his brooding ambient music with the wonderful theme for Lassa and Rose, making "Omerta" one of the most outstanding scores in the three years run of "MillenniuM".

    Definitely one of the most outstanding, and one of my favorites  by Mark.  The descants is what makes it magical and perfect.  The episode itself is a favorite of mine.  Definitely a proud owner of this album, and was thrilled to hear it today, and going to listen to it again.

    Thank you again and again Alex.  :23:  :hug:

  5. Listened to this many times now, and each time it finished, I had to hear it again.  It was so relaxing for some reason, that I still can't remember the melody.  Never had that happen before.  Wow!  I am going to listen to it again, but I am not going to do anything this time, except be still and listen.

    Thank you Alex, for another  spiritual experience from Mark.  :23:  :hug:

    Love the eclipse one. Millennium is almost an infinite source of tee-worthy quotes and images, the possibilities are endless.

    Totally agree about the possibilities.  It's like very episode had it's own symbol of some kind.  Wow, that would be an interesting thread, to list all the episodes and come up with a symbol for each one.  Like 268 being the symbol for "The Curse of Frank Black," and a white paper dove for, "Paper Dove."  Some will be the title, like paper dove, others will be the meaning of the title, like Nesting Dolls for "Matryoshka." or something that was predominate in the episode, like the 268.  To me this would be fun.  Might have the time to start it today, but not sure.  Need to actually ask The Old Man how we can set it up so people can add to the list rather than having to copy and paste it to their post, or make their own list.  That would be too much reading.

    Earth calling Alpha Old Man, please read this post.

  7. Love that idea.  I still want a shirt with the MLM Oroborus on it.

    A long time ago we were trying to start a MLM TV but it never was completed.

    Here's a few of my favorites that I saved on my computer that I would love to have on a shirt.  The TV logo, the Oroborus & the big "X," Captain Estrada's MLM Eclipse, and Frank with his quotes and him with and without MLM on it.




  8. For those of you interested in a T-shirt, specifically the ones with "268" on them, I thought I put together a list of those numbers from the episode, "The Curse of Frank Black" just in case you missed something.  And i case I missed something, please add it.  Thanks.

  9. Interesting that Chris Carter wrote the part of Catherine Black with Megan in mind.  And it was his suggestion to kill her off in "The Time Is Now." 

    You might enjoy reading the 1996 interview with Megan posted at our sister site ~

  10. NASA's image of the alignment shows that the planets were not perfectly in line, which would make a big difference regarding any possible gravitational pull.  And most important, even if they had been in a perfect line,  it was all on the other side of the Sun.  Our Sun was protecting Earth, and interesting that the moon was directly inbetween.  Maybe a catastrophic event happened on another planet, but I personally doubt it.  Mercury and Venus are always somewhat close to each other, and Mars isn't very far off.  I believe Jupiter and Saturn are too far off to have an effect.

    Then there's the question, what is on other calendars?  There are many.

  11. Catherine was killed off because she was a threat.  Yes, she was underused, but ambition was not her thing, family, truth, and stability was always foremost.


    CATHERINE:  I can handle imposition, Frank. What I can’t handle is secrecy.
    [He sits on the bed next to her. She sits up.]

    FRANK:  I don’t keep secrets, Catherine. I’ll tell you anything you want.

    CATHERINE:  You think you’re protecting me but you make it worse, Frank. You can’t shut the world out for me. You can’t ask me to pretend that I don’t know what you do.

    FRANK:  Everyone pretends. We all make believe. These men I help catch - make us.

    CATHERINE:  We’re raising a daughter, Frank. The real world starts to seep in. You can’t stop it.
    [He looks at her intensely.]

    FRANK:  I want you to make believe that I can.

    [She kisses him on the forehead.]

    The kiss shows her love, support, and to give him a piece of mind, whether she believed he could protect them or not.  After she was abducted and watched Frank stab a man in front of her, she just couldn't take anymore and needed some space.

    Thankfully they were together again before she died.  Sad ending for sure.

    She's always been my favorite character.

    This episode is definitely in my top 5, maybe even my top 3!   While it starts out with  tragedy, it does end on a promising note.   Dourif played the confused genius very well.   There was just something about this episode that made me watch it again and again. Did anyone else note the  way Jordan's future seemed all laid out for her, and  how she aligned the planets?  It's like they wanted to  hint that she might be connected to that  family somehow... her parents were alleged to be infertile, and while they didn't get a baby presented to them, they somehow conceived...

    This episode definitely hit the viewer personally, as it was about a real event.  Naturally they took the event even farther.  Yes, it's excellent and definitely a fan favorite.

    Regarding Jordan, oh yes, she aligned the planets, and probably just thought it was what she was suppose to do.  She also has a spiritual ability, but I believe hers is different from Franks.  She sees things, has visions, but I don't believe she has the ability to spiritually see through a killer's eyes like Franks does.

  13. I so highly recommend Dave Pelzer's 1995 memoir of childhood abuse, A Child Called "It." 


    The book was listed on The New York Times Bestseller List for several years, and in 5 years had sold at least 1.6 million copies.

    Pelzer was born in San Francisco, California the second of five boys. He grew up in Daly City, California. At age 18 he joined the U.S. Air Force in 1979 and served in the Gulf War. In the 1980s Pelzer married his first wife Patsy (a pseudonym), with whom he had a son. In 1996 he carried a torch in the 1996 Summer Olympics torch relay. Pelzer and Patsy divorced and many years later he married his second wife, Marsha, who was his editor.

    Dave describes from his viewpoint the severe physical and emotional abuse he suffered as a child from his alcoholic mother from ages 4 to 12.  She did things like forcing him to eat his own vomit.  That's the only example I will give, and sadly, it's not the worst.  At 12, in 1973, Dave's teachers stepped in and he was placed in a foster care family.

    I personally cried while reading this book and have the rest of his books that follow.

    Per Wikipedia ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Pelzer


    His second book, The Lost Boy: A Foster Child's Search for the Love of a Family was published shortly after in 1997. The book covered Pelzer's teen years. The third book in his series, A Man Named Dave: A Story of Triumph and Forgiveness was about Pelzer's experiences as an adult and how he forgave his father. In 2001 he wrote Help Yourself: Finding Hope, Courage, And Happiness which was a self-help book. When discussing his seventh book Moving Forward he said, "My message has always been about resilience."

    One of Dave's brothers, Richard B. Pelzer, published his own autobiography, A Brother's Journey, that detailed his experiences. Paraphrased, Pelzer said in the afterword of his book that his objectives for his story was to show how a parent can become abusive and how the human spirit can triumph and survive.


  14. You're in a lot of company.  Many fans say this is their favorite, and I agree, it is an awesome episode.  And I doubt if anyone has made the connection with Crocell.  Awesome find.  It's one example that shows us the research they put into this show and what made it so exceptionally good.  Aren't we all glad he refused to become Mr. Crocell?

    Being a spiritual person myself, I really appreciate the info you posted.  Thanks.
