Playscript for “Do Ask Do Tell” movie and slide show

 Note: Because of a Microsoft software glitch (having to do with table entries in Word converted to HTML), the hyperlinks starting about half way thru  the file were one or two files "behind" and there are extraneous links (using the "span" subcommand), from about 7/11 to 7.124. I repaired this on 7/24/2006 by deleting extraneous href links. 

7/25  Most links should work; I could have missed a few.

The purpose of this sequence of pictures and clips is to suggest what an indie documentary film like “Do Ask Do Tell” could “look” like. Of course, some of the images are not of the best quality and would be re-taken if used. This is what I can do on a “zero budget.” With $$$ it could be much more polished. (Visit my movie reviews at http://www.doaskdotell.com/movies )  Here is a discussion of a practical way to organize this material on a DVD or VD. For information about the DVD that I have made now, see filmstatus.

Most of the video clips are unedited. The intention is to sketch out content and what it would look like. With sufficient resources, scenes would be reshot professionally in high definition or some suitable technology. I have several scripts to develop this material, and not all of them are shown publicly (on this site). 

The content of this file corresponds more or less to a film with a PG-13 rating. There are no sexually explicit pictures or images, but some of the audio discussion is about mature subjects, suitable essentially in high school.  Here, I mention my blog: http://billboushka.blogspot.com  http://billretires.blogspot.com http://billsinternetsafety.blogspot.com/

Here are some terms:

Applicability date:  The approximate date in history that the image refers to. The entries will be in approximate chronological sequence by this date (but not always!) – enough to make sense!

Content date: The time that the actual image content was originally taken or created

Photograph date: The date that the image was photographed

MPG – movie; JPG – still; R – rephotographed    The MPG’s have not been edited, although some of them will be done soon.

A ‘*’ after MPG means higher definition (a larger file but shorter time); generally these are files from MN.

Musical signature and credit frame for DADT film (sketch)     Also, here is my home-taken headshot.

This was a home “computer” from the 1940s. next to another (Army) chess trophy.

Family lived in Buckingham in Arlington until 1949 (then heavily segregated; now "re-segregated" by immigration and home-ownership economics; some of area being turned into condos)

My theory is that angels (not the Anaheim baseball kind) live forever, do what they want except make babies; We all know that “spam” is a pun (remember the movie “Sophie’s Choice”); The function on the TI 84 graphing calculator is y = 1/x.  Think of “spam” volume as represented by x, then take the derivative of its natural logarithm and you get 1/x, what is graphed. That is, passive internet advertising is the “derivative” of spam. Could that matter in court?  Ha ha, mathematics matters in real life.  I don’t have a slide rule (remember “slide rule accuracy” on physics and chemistry tests in the pre-calculator age); look at this site: http://www.sliderules.clara.net/ .

 

Since the mid 1990s, of course, we have lived with an additional dimension, as google can make anyone a celebrity.

Note the change in technology from the phonograph record to the CD

The workshop is mostly 50s technology, with a few modern items. I used it for science fair projects.

“Pumpkins are orange”—so I was scolded in a private kindergarten when I colored them as red, which I liked better as a kid;

I attended Woodlawn Elementary (grades 1-6) in Arlington VA 1949-1955; 1st and 2nd grades were in the front windowed rooms. Today the building is a hospice. Swanson Junior High School, which I attended 1955-1958 is today Swanson Middle School. I remember those dreaded algebra tests and “classworks” (factoring, long division, word problems) on the second floor near the end of the building. Arlington Hospital had a two-story colonial architecture of a community hospital until the 1990s, when buyouts and corporate mergers led to all the new high rise construction in a heavily historic (with Civil War remnants) residential area of Arlington. (Ponder the high cost of health care!) The Health Dept is still a 40s building in the wartime style that the hospital had been known for; nearby is the Halls Hill Wall, whatever is left of it from the days of segregation a few decades ago.  Kenmore Middle School has a new building (and a vacant field for the old one); had a neighborhood and Internet safety event 2/10/2008

This was a 1951 Kimball console piano in the living room; I was called “a boy who plays.” Crosshands was a big deal.

I got my first stereo in fall 1962, a VM that tracked at 6 grams. I replaced the 78-stylus with a 1 mil stylus to preserve the mono records when tracking heavy, many of them badly worn in inner grooves (especially with piano) by an older RCA Victor “record player” where we used sapphire needles!  How things have changed!

The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC, (16th and O Sts NW, less than 1 mile from the White House) church of presidents. This sanctuary opened on Christmas Day 1955. I was baptized there with my mother in January 1956. The Church is affiliated with both Baptist conventions, so it has tended to be politically moderate to liberal, although the members vary enormously. President Jimmy Carter taught Sunday School there in 1977, when I attended (the divorce parable).

FBC members met in the Jewish Community Center, 3 blocks north, while the new sanctuary was being constructed in 1955; President Clinton attended both FBC and Foundry Methodist in 1993 during the debate on lifting the military gay ban.; Calvary Baptist is downtown and has a new steeple

Qwest has building in Arlington but no cell phone service (instead Verizon); part of iPhone and network neutrality political and legal debate; The Mormon building is a stake in Arlington VA. Mormons do not choose which church to go to.

Clarendon Presbyterian Church in Arlington is a liberal congregation which stopped performing marriage ceremonies in view of the Marshall-Newman amendment in VA.

I restarted college as a full time student at George Washington University in Feb 1962. I lived at home since I was “incompatible with dorm life” for a while. That would become part time for a while when I was a patient at NIH and then had a job at NBS. The tallest building here was the Library then, and the GWU chess club met on the top floor in 1964, where I came to appreciate positional play (1 d4 or 1 c4) and give up playing for the fork trick.

Note the mention of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis; Note that in 1979 I could not get on-the-job health insurance from Blue Cross, Blue Shield of Texas because of this history of “psychiatric illness” (?!); P6 refers to my screening for the GP160 HIV vaccine trial in 1988 (I did not go through with it); p7 shows more "psychiatric" reference letters; p8 shows how the nurses on 3W watched us and wrote down detailed notes about the social interactions among the patients; they were particularly observant about comments about homosexuality  Some of this seems a bit alarming given its personal nature; I display it because I want visitors to understand how the psychiatric world saw things ("different" boys) during the Cold War period. It seemed like this was "self-fulfilling" adaptive even if "professional" thinking, This is history!

The dorms on Mt Oread, Strong Hall, the Campenile tower, Flint Hills, pictures from Herington, KS (associated with the OKC tragedy in 1995); Varsity and Granda theaters in Lawrence. Although Smallville is filmed mostly in Canada, is Smallville supposed to be Lawrence, KS, and is Kansas City supposed to be Metropolis? The Kansas City Star printing plant is shown (it looks like LuthorCorp). 

Notice how much the Granada Theater marquee in downtown Lawrence looks like the Talon in Smallville. The Varsity, across the street, is similar. The Granada is now a stage; The Varsity is upscale retail. Massachusetts street in downtown Lawrence resembles the Smallville of the 2001 pilot (with the meteor shower).  Note also pictures of Flint Hills and Kansas State, near Manhattan, KS This area, if an inspiration for Smallville, also has the aging state capitol in Topeka and the Westboro Baptist Church. There are some scenes here from Herington, KS, infamous in conjuction with the OKC 1995 tragedy. Also, Council Grove. There are no meteor rocks or big caves.

I lived in the Cast Iron Building at 67 E 11 st 1974-1978, in the antique district. Across the street was 80 E 11, where the United States Chess Federation had been located in the 1960s. I went to work for NBC as a mainframe computer programmer (in the days when the Univac 1108/1110 was a respectable mainframe) on the 8th floor of this short building in Rockefeller Center in Aug. 1974 (until 1977, when I switched to IBM) in order to work in NYC and live conveniently close to the gay community. From 1974-1975 I regularly visited the Ninth Street Center  in the East Village; I still participate in online chat and would regularly visit into the 1980s. Julius’s, in the West Village, is the oldest gay bar in NYC and is in a historic building that dates back to Revolutionary War times. The Stonewall in was the site of the famous 1969 riots that changed history.

Photos of the US Naval Academy, site of outstanding gay midshipman Joseph Steffan who was expelled in 1987, wrote the book Honor Bound that would be important early in the 1993 debate on gays in the military (I read the book over one night in Sept. 1992 after a booksigning party at Lambda Rising). Note the plaque about Women in War, and the sculpture of Alex Haley reading to his children (Annapolis harbor). Finally, note the USAA office for midshipman assistance near the USNA grounds. USAA sells insurance to the military. I worked for a similar company, USLICO. I took a corporate transfer in 1997 to avoid a conflict of interest since I was authoring and publishing a book largely about gays in the military. I would not work for USAA because of this issue, even as a civilian.

Washington Navy Yard scenes (I worked there 1971-1972), include the USS Barry (similar to the ships I visited in 1993 in Norfolk and at Patriots Point in Charleston SC); a diving sphere similar to what is shown on the NBC series “Surface”; two nuclear submarine exhibits (controls, periscope) similar to what I saw inside the Sunfish; a WWII Japanese combat camera (of interest to filmmakers), a cross section of an aircraft carrier, communicating what it could be like to live on one, in somewhat crowded conditions: the headquarters for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Naval and Marine Corps Court of Appeals;

From my lecture at the Libertarian Party of MN at Hamline University, St Paul MN. I talked about libertarianism and gay issues: in these clips, free speech (the Communications Decency Act of 1996) and “consequentialism”; Later I would be involved with COPA; my affidavit;  Clips 6 and 7 mention terrorism and WMD’s from a 1998 prespective. The 57 minute speech (on crutches from an acetabular fracture from a fall in a convenience store) would be broadcast on the Liberty Channel on Minneapolis public access cable.

Files numbered >= 12 have reduced screen size and longer play time.

File 15 mentions the military gay ban; File 20 gets into fundamental rights. The dissenting Justice in Bowers v. Hardwick (1986) was Harry Blackmun.

 

(show produced by Eric Johnshon)

 

The military ban is addressed also in clips 24-27; gay marriage in clip 28.

 

 

I got my one traffic ticket in the past 7 years on University Ave in St Paul at the underpass speed trap driving back in my crutches!

 

Files 32-34 deal with the “relationship paradox” – the apparent contradiction between self-sufficiency and family or community as values or virtues.

 

I gave a similar speech at the University of Minnesota on March 31, 1999, and included some material about the polarities and Paul Rosenfels. The talk was sponsored by the U of M campus libertarians.

AA Flight 77 flew near this area (a little further south) before slamming into the Pentagon. I actually had a prolonged dream about a catastrophe at this location the night of Sept. 10, 2001, and got up about 45 minutes before the real catastrophe started. I was told by a coworker in my cubicle (I could walk a few hundred feet through the Minneapolis Skyway to work then) at 9:25 EDT. The Pentagon clip was taken at a distance when reconstruction was nearing completion.
