Anniversay special: Watch “extraordinary: the stan romanek story” VOD for $2.99!

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since altPOV.tv launched. For Richie, Patrick and me, the week leading up to the launch — and especially the 48 hours before — will be something we won’t forget soon due to technical challenges and Patrick’s missing time experience. But we survived, and finally had a chance to share the award-winning documentary film extraordinary: the stan romanek story with a global audience.

In the year since the launch, we have added 1,700 members and have received more than 102,000 page views on our site. Jack Roth has conducted 24 podcasts that have been viewed more than 8,000 times. Not bad. But we want the site to have an even greater reach, and we will continue to develop additional content. More on that later. But first:

To celebrate our one-year anniversary, you can watch the VOD of extraordinary for $2.99 — 50% off the regular $5.99 price. The discount is available through Tuesday, May 12 at 3 p.m. EDT. The VOD will be available for 48 hours from the time you purchase.

Back to the additional content. Our goal from the outset was to provide a variety of alternative point of view content above and beyond the extraordinary: the stan romanek story documentary. The podcasts, blog content and social media content have been relatively easy to keep up with — assuming our full-time jobs allow. The challenge has been to edit and present some of the content that we promised at the outset, including additional footage from the interviews conducted for the documentary. Time and money are always a factor for independent projects, and we are considering a few crowd-sourcing options that may help us create a pathway to more content. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

Finally, we’re wondering what you would like to see on the site in addition to the content we’re already providing. Politics? Religion? Conspiracy theories? Let us know in the comments area what you’d like to see more of.

For those of you who have stuck around for the past year, we thank you for your continued support via comments, emails and social media engagement. It is much appreciated.

Here’s to the next 365 days!

 

Stan Romanek declared competent to stand trial

Stan RomanekaltPOV.tv learned today that Stan Romanek has been deemed competent to stand trial following his arrest in February on charges of child pornography possession. A pretrial has been set for Jan. 21, 2015, where the judge will review the case to determine if there is sufficient evidence to move to trial.

The pretrial was delayed due to injuries Stan sustained during an attack on February 24, 2014, which included a head injury, a cut to his right arm that required 10 stitches, a fractured orbital bone, a broken tooth, internal bruising on his liver and a significant disruption in his cognitive abilities.

The defense attorney had Stan evaluated by a psychologist in July to determine if he was mentally fit to stand trial following his injuries, which, according to conversations we had with both Stan and Lisa at the time, made it difficult for Stan to process information and communicate clearly with his attorney. Based on these challenges, Lisa shared that the only desire was to get Stan to a point where he could clearly understand and process information before moving forward.

“We never wanted to avoid a trial,” Lisa said. “Our goal all along was for Stan to go through a restorative process that would allow his brain to heal and function clearly. He just wanted time to heal his brain so he would be able to defend himself from these charges.”

When the July defense psychologist report claimed Stan Romanek was not yet competent to stand trial, the DA requested a second review, hiring a psychologist to conduct an evaluation in September.

On Monday, December 1 — which happened to be Stan’s birthday — the two psychologists appeared in court to state their evaluations before the judge, and, according to Lisa, it was a grueling day of significantly opposing points of view.

My assessment of what Lisa shared about Monday’s testimony was that the DA and its psychologist attempted to discredit the prior psych evaluation, the psychologist and Stan himself. Again, this is my interpretation, based on the lengthy conversation I had with Lisa today. After nine hours of testimony on Monday, the judge recessed and said he would have his decision today, Wednesday, December 3.

And that decision was, despite recognition of some cognitive challenges, Stan was competent to stand trial and would need to work with his attorney to overcome any communication obstacles.

According to Lisa, now that a pretrial date has been set, Stan and his attorney will move into defense-planning mode despite the cognitive and communications challenges Stan faces.

“He’ll continue with his therapy so he can do the best he can when the time comes to defend himself,” said Lisa. “Despite everything going on, he’s trying to relax and allow his brain to heal.”

We will continue to share information about Stan Romanek’s case as it develops.

Stan Romanek is the subject of j3FILMS‘ award-winning documentary extraordinary: the stan romanek story, which is available on DVD and via streaming at altPOV.tv

More analysis on Stan Romanek equations

Stan Romanek equations


Yesterday's post about a forum discussion regarding the Stan Romanek equations on an Italian website, along with a few other techy posts we had on Facebook, has us in a bit of a science-y mood at altPOV.tv.

The Stan Romanek equations pique the interests of those who seek clarity and knowledge from the numbers and diagrams Stan has drawn, so as you can imagine, there has been quite a bit of discussion, investigation and debate over the years about what the equations really mean.

Rense.com features a webpage where Stan submitted his equations and several people provided evaluation and comments. It's a technical and lengthy read, but worth the effort if you want to learn more about the Stan Romanek equations and what they mean.

Enjoy your trip down the rabbit hole!

Stan Romanek equations analyzed in forum

The Stan Romanek equations are one of the most fascinating elements of Stan's unusual UFO experiencer case. As a UFO abduction experiencer, Stan has been taken several times, witnessed high strangeness, assaulted by who knows what and why, shot at, followed, trespassed upon — the list goes on, and it has been documented in detail by Stan, as is illustrated in the documentary film "extraordinary: the stan romanek story," which is available at altPOV.tv as a VOD and DVD.

But one aspect of his case has specifically caught the attention of scientists and science buffs: the equations. Stan has drawn numerous equations in his sleep and during regressions, and most of what he has scribbled has been scrutinized and analyzed by experts for years.

Just yesterday, there was quite a lively discussion about the Stan Romanek equations in the forum of the Italian website www.cosenascoste.com. Unless you can read Italian, we suggest you use the Chrome brower to view this thread because you can automatically have it translated with Google Translate.

One of the posters, Cribbio, mentions there were "things in my head" he couldn't quite understand until he saw the Stan Romanek equations. What follows is a lively debate well worth the read, especially if you're scientifically inclined!
