Not seen that before so thanks.Came across this - maybe of interest?
Charles Fort Commerative Blue Plaque Unveiling, 28/03/2015
What actually happened there was the link initially didn't work.One sporadically runs a YouTube search for any new, related material and this has just come up.
Firstly, I made the decision not to use emojis, or exclamation marks in this thread - just seemed unnecessary.The "https" denotes an ostensibly secure version of a HTTP connection / interaction over the 'Net.
The extremely rare "httpsps" prefix denotes an HTTPS session established over a psychic - as opposed to digital - link.
But seriously ...
If you Google "httpsps" you'll get a few thousand hits on links posted that came out this way. This suggests it has something to do with a keyboard 'skip' or similar glitch. I saw multiple examples of YouTube links thus modified among the Google results.
Nae bother.Thank you.
There’s this one?Nae bother.
I was going to ask if you might please explain the background to why you became interested in Fort's work and it suddenly occured I have idea why anyone else did either.
I can't locate an existing thread for same.
Just wondered if there might be?
Regarding the specific photo ...These are Pitches and concept art that were pitched to Hollywood production companies and studios, or domestic projects or even just things I've collaged that are not part of any film project. All art below created by Anthony Lucas 2005 - 2012, ably helped by Julia Lucas and sometimes co-written pitch ideas and script development with Mark Shirrefs. ...
SOURCE: http://www.spindlyfigures.com.au/Not-to-beConcept art for a pitch to Brad Pitt's company, Plan B, on the script, Chasing Vermeer about two kids who sleuth out an art thief. Based on a great New York times best seller YA novel written by Blue Balliet. The company and Walden Media never made the film. My concept art details the clues the kids put together and the mysterious Charles Fort simulacra they encounter who acts as an intuitive sleuth guide. I imagined Anthony Hopkins as the enigmatic Charles Fort.
See... thing is, I had sussed that all along....It's a digital image created for a presentation pitching a movie concept. The Post-It Note alludes to "Vermeer."
So... after recovering from nearly expiring laughing there....Apparently the concept for "Chasing Vermeer" used a Cheshire-Cat-like simulacrum of Fort that would appear in some meaningful way.
Charles Fort apparently visited Scotland.Thank you.
He definitely went to Glasgow, he did visit other places in Scotland as well but I have never found proof that he came to Edinburgh.Charles Fort apparently visited Scotland.
What do we know of this?
Incidentally, if of interest, came across the following article:

I also remembered you had replied and lamenting something about having missed your flight....that video was about an unveiling in America.
Both the video and the web link are the same location, 39a Marchmont Street, London. About 100 yards away from where I lived for three years.Crossed my mind for a moment... it was dismissed though, because that video was about an unveiling in America.
Do we perchance have a false memory thread.
