Revelations: in multiple senses of the word…

Last evening when I watched a documentary about an odd history that played out in Oregon in the 1980’s based on a cult, I had some debate about the meaning of “cult”. I was confused as to what the intent of this documentary was, and what was about to be revealed…       I insisted, “But a cult by definition implies fraud, sexual exploitation, and other activities defined as crimes!” The Jonestown massacre is an example of one extreme. What is on the other extreme? One person, a thousand? Brainwashing is only where it begins, but if that’s all it amounts to, maybe there’s no crime in that? Was a cult automatically a bad thing? I was so confused.        I am not a mean person. Lately I’ve found myself conflicted by the seemingly “unfair” “persecution” of Jessica Schab. She had the audacity to come out after the implosion of the EOF as a “former cult leader”. Too soon to capitalize on the pain she’s caused. My  feelings on her were reaffirmed when I watched the latest video she posted last evening. She had a decisive impact on the greatest event in my life, which was the brainwashing and exploitation of my former “fiancé”. Is she ready to be forgiven? Surely she as all people deserve their chance for redemption. She continues to bury this incident under the rug. She’s not the only one.       During Jessica’s interview, I was brought back to the very moments and techniques of the conscious and forceful manipulation of my “fiance”…because I was on the receiving end of her brainwashing which manifested itself in increasing physical abuse. I continue to defend Melissa as I don’t believe it was her fault. (Honey, I’ve only wanted to forgive you) and as always, Jessica mentions her over encompassing and twisted version of the word “abuse” which she seems to blanket over every relationship as another tool in her arsenal to manipulate the outcome to her own wishes: and that of course was the destruction of our relationship as is well defined in my film. Not only does Jessica continually reinforce my position that she did a horrible thing, but in revealing her conscious manipulation reveals a huge betrayal of those she hurt including Melissa…and obviously me. But that is only the beginning of a very long and complex story where they of course eventually teamed up in Europe to bring this “abuse” and her exploitation to a whole new level. They? Hurting us was indeed an international effort. (See other stories on this site)  I had not spoken to Melissa in over 4 years. I had only seen her Facebook page once in all that time and that was almost 2 years ago. 99.9% of the time I am completely in the dark about how her life even is. I get news of her condition very infrequently. I worry about her every single day. I am not happy about anything or anyone … Continue reading

Hoversled Continues To Reach New Milestones

Hoversled, the latest of filmmaker Steven Sohlstrom’s enterprises, is in actuality a life long passion. He first began to design hovercrafts in the early 1980’s and in 1987 had a hovercraft he constructed of pine boards and aluminum sheets  on display as a 4-H project at the Benton County fair. 20 years later, he envisioned the concept of the battery powered Hoversled and within months, had a working prototype. Today, the current encarnation of hoversled sports powerful brushless motors, a lift capacity surpassing 200 pounds and a weight less than 15 pounds. Very recently, Sohlstrom achieved the seemingly impossible when he coasted to the bottom of the local sledding hill while it was completely free of snow, immediately proving that the sport of hoversledding is for every season and worldwide. The Hoversled is currently available in two configurations: The Exo S70 $399 and the Exo T65 $469.
