1. Washington Heights Hill (22)

    everyhill:

    The following day, I decided to keep it slow. There was a small patch of hills in the northwest corner of the city that I was interested in seeing. 

    So I took the bus up through Golden Gate Park and took a walk west through the Richmond district.

  2. Mt. Olympus (17)

    factsaboutowls:

    Most locals I’ve spoken to don’t know this hill. Well ok most people don’t know the names of most of these hills but in the hilliest region of the city, this one’s pretty easy to miss.

    OLYMPUS UPDATE:

    Before Atlas Obscura, I had literally no idea this monument was so significant. But it turns out as an aspect of Sutro’s history, it’s remarkably important. 

    I’m stunned.

Amityville horror.
The first time that picture was shown was on the Merv Griffin show back in 1979. It was discovered 3 years after it was taken. Gene Campbell, who was a professional photographer, was brought into the house in 1976 when the Warrens went in with their team. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared film, black and white, throughout the night. There are literally rolls of film with nothing on them. There’s only one picture of the little boy.

Sure, the original Amityville Horror story was actually made up one night by the Lutzes and their lawyer (a fact the lawyer openly admitted and George Lutz was never able to really refute); and there was never any reported ghost activity before or after the Lutz family stayed at the house; and the Warrens are notorious for making up and encouraging the fictionalization of their “investigations” (see: A Haunting in Connecticut) and are, from my perspective, astonishingly untrustworthy…this photo is still fucking creepy as hell.

  4. A Portrait of Male Lana del Rey Fans

    [Exterior shot- A glistening 1960s modernist apartment tower, aglow in the fading sun.]

    [sharp cut to interior shot, only darkness]

    [Track down to backside of an ornate wooden chair, painted a glossy white and illuminated by spotlights set on the floor. Beside the chair is a reel to reel projector, clearly showing its age]

    [the shot pans to the left, revealing the antique wainscoting and pale wallpaper on which warm, grainy clips of shadows cast on pavement are projected without sound]

    [cut to the feet at the front of the chair, then pan up the seated figure; pale, shirtless, and thin. In his right hand he holds a dove; in his left, a gleaming revolver.]

    [halfway through, 30 second leak of Lana del Rey’s Young and Beautiful begins]

    [the man’s face is serene. silently, tears stream down his cheeks, opalescent and symbolic of unrequited love]

    [cut to medium shot of the back of the man, facing the wall, with filtered images projecting over him. His feet don’t quite touch the ground. he remembers the sun and the rain]

    [cut to a close up, framing large tattoo of gothic script on the back of his neck as short fragments of movement continue to project. The tattoo reads “Oh My God This Song Is My Life”]

How would paint even work like that
