Bucks County man charged in zombie-like attack in Poconos

A 20-year-old Doylestown-area man, found naked and bleeding in the Poconos last week, is facing assault charges after allegedly gnawing on the head of a Wayne County woman during a zombie-like attack akin to the “Causeway Cannibal” Miami police shot and killed in May.

State police in Honesdale said they used a stun gun on Richard Cimino Jr. early Friday after two women reported he was “screaming like an animal” and “began to gnaw” on one of their heads. The women, both of Hawley in Wayne County, managed to escape without serious injuries and call police.

State police found Cimino, of Buckingham Township, Bucks County, lying on a street in Hawley, a borough about 60 miles north of Allentown. Police said he was covered in blood from injuries he received after breaking into a vacant house and jumping out a second-floor window.

According to state police, Cimino acted delusional and confrontational and lunged at one of the troopers before another shot him with a stun gun. Continue reading

Abstract Artist known for colorful glyphs

Acclaimed Washington artist Tom Green dies of Lou Gehrig’s disease at 70

Tom Green, the acclaimed creator of colorful and inventive abstract art and a longtime teacher at Washington’s Corcoran College of Art and Design, died Sept. 3 at his home in Cabin John.

He had been suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, and died in his living room amid a regular Monday gathering of local artists and friends, his wife, Linda Green, said. He was 70.

Mr. Green, who taught at the Corcoran for 40 years before retiring in 2009, was influenced by the Washington Color School that emphasized abstract, geometric paintings in bright colors.

He is perhaps best known for his large paintings of colorful “glyphs” — big, curving, figures that resemble letters from a mysterious alphabet. His paint-spattered home studio was filled with them, and the American University Museum hosted an exhibition of Mr. Green’s work last year.

In 1988, former Washington Post art critic Paul Richard described an enigmatic Green painting as “like a comic strip for Martians,” but with understanding “just around the corner . . . one train of thought away.”  Continue reading

It’s Raining Balls

SEP 2, 2012
Leicester couple pelted by raining yellow plastic balls

Alrighty folks…now it’s raining colored balls in the UK! From the appearance, texture and size of the balls the two incidents don’t appear to be related except for their mysterious nature.

Blue Balls in Bournemouth, Dorset ~ January 2012

Yellow Balls in Leicester August 2012

A husband and wife have been left puzzled after hundreds of tiny yellow plastic balls rained in their garden.

Dylis Scott and her husband Tony were in their garage on Monica Road, Leicester, on Sunday when the balls fell from the sky during a storm.
Mrs Scott said they started hitting the car and garage door and “shooting at me”.
The Met Office said it was possible for weather systems to lift things such as dust and deposit them many miles away.

In January it was reported that 3cm diameter blue balls came raining down during a hailstorm in Bournemouth, Dorset.

Theories on what the balls could have been included crystals used in floral displays or ammunition for a toy gun.
‘Heck, what’s happening?’ Continue reading
