    I used to love one-night stands. And I was good at them, too. I loved the intense and almost taboo connection with another person, the excitement, the lust, and, well, the sex. But even more than that, I loved the fact that it was temporary, transitory. I struggle with commitment, and not just in…

    "This woman, who has never held a job for any time, doesn’t get up in the mornings, is routinely three or four hours late to appointments, who walks out of studios because she doesn’t feel like singing that day, and has a knack for both tantrum and wonder, achieves a childlike intensity of emotion in her songs because on some level she isn’t, even at the age of forty-seven, quite an adult. And I am probably not the only one who isn’t in a hurry to see her to grow up."

    John Rangel’s inspiring short film entitled And Then I Knew is a story of two young lovers embarking on a journey together. A girl, stuck working on a gas station and tired of the mundane, small town life she’s destined to have, convinces her lover to take her with him on his road trip to Phoenix. With beautiful music, some very nice editing and convincing, talented actors, And Then I Knew leaves you with a distinct feeling of wanting to run away, it succeeds at planting an adventurous seed into your heart and inspires you to rethink your own circumstances.

    I’m a graduate of the film school at Chapman University and am based in the Chicago area. My most recent feature, The Girls on Liberty Street, premiered in the New Directors Competition at the 2013 Chicago International Film Festival and was subsequently named “One of the Ten Best Films of 2013” by Dan Sallitt (Senses of Cinema). It will be available for streaming at Seed & Spark in September.
     
    And Then I Knew, based on a feature I have developed, shares a theme with The Girls on Liberty Street in that it’s about a young girl taking a risk to for a chance to leave her hometown. It stars Allison Torem (Ellie Lumme, The Wise Kids) and Jake Cohen with music from EMA. It is online as part of the 2014 Official Selection for the NALIP Media Summit. John Rangel

    I wonder what would have become of me if I had come of age as a writer during these years of living out loud.

From “a guide to the sexual understanding of great buildings”: “Right angles don’t attract me. Nor straight, hard and inflexible lines created by man. What attracts me are free and sensual curves. The curves we find … in the body of the woman we love.”

    The British Undercover Cop Who Went Too Far
    See on Scoop.it - Think Tank

    In the eighties, an animal-rights activist fell in love with Bob Robinson and had his child. Years later, she learned that Bob Robinson was Bob Lambert, and Bob Lambert was a spy. Lauren Collins reports.
    LeWilliamNorth's insight:

    James Olson, a former Chief of Counterintelligence at the C.I.A., who was involved in clandestine operations overseas for many years, described undercover sexual involvements as “something that we should not do in the C.I.A., absolutely not.” He went on, “Our liaison friends in other services think that we Americans are ridiculously puritanical and that we avoid using something that works.” The masters were the East Germans—particularly Markus Wolf, whose Romeo agents seduced government secretaries in the West. As for Bob Robinson, Olson said, “It’s very easy to fall into that trap—the righteousness trap. Some people are so convinced that what they’re doing is for the good of the country that they’re willing to excuse what would ordinarily be gross misconduct on their parts. They lose sight of ethical constraints.”
