Lethal Marriage: The Unspeakable Crimes of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka

Nick Pron

“I wuv you Paul. To my one and only number one guy in the world. Your snuggly wuggly honey bunny. Kar.” Karla Homolka sent her beloved Paul hundreds of “wuv” notes. When she didn’t feel like it anymore he beat her up. She continued to write one every day.
Handsome Karla and Paul appeared to be an ideal couple. A Canadian Barbie and Ken. Their crimes, however, horrified an entire nation and resulted in the most costly manhunt and sensational trial in Canada’s history. You see, Karla had assisted and then watched her “number-one guy” kidnap, rape, sodomize and murder three teenage “sex slaves” including her “widdle” sister. Every action was caught on videotape for Paul’s later viewing pleasure. Many of these grisly videotapes were transcribed in this book for your… reading pleasure. LZ

In the Blink of an Eye: A Perspective on Film Editing

Walter Murch

“From the moment we get up in the morning until we close our eyes at night, the visual reality we perceive is a continuous stream of linked images: In fact, for millions of years—tens, hundreds of millions of years—life on Earth has experienced the world this way. Then suddenly, at the beginning of the 20th century, human beings were confronted with something else—edited film.” Award-winning film editor, sound designer and mixer (The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, The Godfather Parts II and III, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Crumb, The English Patient, etc.), Murch muses on film editing, DNA, dream therapy and the blink of an eye, and shows how these enable us to perceive the “total and instantaneous discontinuity of one field of vision with another” that is film.
