www.youtube.com – – 2023-09-04 01:05:40

SUMMARY: The Reed House in Chattanooga, Tennessee, has a haunted history that includes the tragic death of a young woman named Annalisa Netherley in room 311. The hotel, which has been in operation for over 150 years, has embraced its paranormal reputation and even offers guests the chance to stay in the infamous room. Many guests and staff members have reported unexplained occurrences and encounters with restless spirits throughout the hotel. Despite these eerie happenings, the Reed House remains a popular destination for visitors, who can appreciate its rich history and charm.

In 1927, a young woman met a violent end in a Chattanooga hotel. Reports on how she came to her death are mixed, but the legend of her gruesome story persists almost 100 years later, and for good reason. The tragic young woman's spirit is said, along with the ghosts of many others, some from the Civil War era, to haunt not only the room where she died but the entire establishment where she spent her final days. Fire, flood, a near-duel, and an infamous mobster are all part of the colorful, yet macabre and paranormal legend of the south's longest continuously running – though still magnificent – hotel. This is the history of Annalisa Netherly and the Read House in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Artist Thao Nguyen Phan: Learning From Past Lives | Louisiana Channel

Published

on

www.youtube.com – – 2024-06-18 09:30:30

SUMMARY: Thao Nguyen Phan, a Vietnamese visual artist, explores history, trauma, and human connection through her art, which blends poetry and beauty in traumatic contexts to offer optimism and alternative perspectives. Influenced by her Buddhist upbringing, she emphasizes equality and respect in her work, focusing on mundane moments that hold historical significance. Trained in lacquer painting, Phan now works with various materials and is inspired by fiction, history, and oral traditions. Her projects, such as those addressing the 1945 Vietnamese famine, employ moving images to convey time circularly, embracing the transformative nature of art to foster understanding and compassion.

Thao Nguyen Phan looks to the past to understand the present. Intertwining myth and reality, fact and folklore, she revives the untold stories of Vietnam's turbulent past.

“I'm interested in how history and reality are written and perceived,” she states as she sits down to unveil some of the layers of her practice.

In her delicate watercolor paintings, silk works, and installations, Phan invites audiences to reconsider how concepts like history and reality are created. By turning to forgotten oral histories and changing the perspective from which we perceive historical events, Phan seeks to challenge how conventional history is written. “Even something extremely mundane, like the life of an animal or the spirit of a tree, could have the same weight and importance as a major historical event,” she explains.

Phan's artistic approach is rooted in her upbringing in a Buddhist family, which also permeates her relationship with time. She notes, “The way I perceive time in the Asian context is more circular. Like tides going up and down.” One way in which Phan challenges Western notions of linear time is through her moving image works:

“For example, in the video piece Becoming Alluvium, I try to manifest my understanding of time through a series of reincarnations. Reincarnations in a literal way, in which the characters in the film transform and reincarnate into different lives. So basically, if I add another life, the story can be expanded to an infinite point.”

Thao Nguyen Phan (b. 1987) lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Originally trained in lacquer painting, Phan's works span multiple disciplines, including artist moving images, which she studied under American video artist Joan Jonas as a 2016-2017 Rolex Protégée. In 2019, Phan was shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award, and in 2018 she was granted the Han Nefkens Foundation-LOOP Barcelona Video Art Production Award, in collaboration with Fundació Joan Miró. Phan has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Tate St Ives, Cornwall; and The 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, The Milk of Dreams.

Thao Nguyen Phan was interviewed by Nanna Rebekka in Phan's solo exhibition Reincarnations of Shadows at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Episode 219: The Kidnapping of Carrie Lawson, Part 2

Published

on

www.youtube.com – – 2024-06-17 09:57:45

SUMMARY: Southern Fried True Crime covers inappropriate cases for young listeners and uses explicit language. The latest episode recaps the kidnapping of Carrie Lawson on September 11, 1991, in Jasper, Alabama. Earl and Carrie Lawson were tricked by a phony nurse caller, leading to Carrie's abduction by Jerry Bland. Bland and his accomplice, Karen McPherson, botched the ransom exchange. Despite extensive FBI efforts and searches, Carrie was never found. Bland committed suicide without revealing her location, and Karen was sentenced to life in prison. The case remains unresolved, with Carrie's family continuing to seek closure.

In the dark morning hours of September 11th 1991, in the small town of Jasper Alabama, a couple named Earl and Carrie Lawson were awoken by a fake emergency phone call that lured them out of the house. A masked man was waiting in their carport. Earl was bound with duct tape and the assailant forced Carrie into their SUV and sped off into the darkness. Carrie had been kidnapped for ransom. It seemed like something you only saw in movies. In the last episode, I told you all about the parade of mistakes the FBI made in this case. Now we're getting into the repercussions of those mistakes, and even more bad decisions…as Carrie Lawson's life hung in the balance.

Episode 218: The Kidnapping of Carrie Lawson

SUMMARY: Southern Fraud True Crime warns listeners about explicit content. The explores cases like Carrie Lawson's kidnapping in Jasper, Alabama— a close-knit community with a population around 14,000. Carrie, from a wealthy and philanthropic family, married Earl Lawson, also from an esteemed local family, in 1990. In September 1991, the couple was deceived into leaving their home, whereupon Carrie was abducted. Despite a ransom payment and extensive FBI efforts, which included tracking, failed ransom drops, and a corrupted wire-tap, Carrie remained missing. Significant media attention and public searches ensued. The case, laden with FBI blunders, remains unresolved, turning Carrie Lawson into a symbol of Jasper's ongoing quest for justice.

In the wee hours of September 11, 1991, Earl and Carrie Lawson were awoken by an urgent phone call from a woman claiming to be a nurse who said Earl's father was hospitalized and might not make it through the night. The couple threw on clothes and rushed out the door, only to be stopped by a masked man as they were getting in their Ford Explorer. He bound Earl with duct tape, then forced 25 year-old Carrie into the Explorer and raced off into the darkness. Their families were shocked to discover this was a kidnapping for ransom. It seemed like something you only saw in movies…but it was very real and they were terrified for Carrie.
