In Louisiana The Bottom Fell Out Of A Swamp

Angel Heart is a 1987 American mystery horror film written and directed by Alan Parker, and starring Mickey Rourke, Robert De Niro, and Lisa Bonet. The film is adapted from the novel Falling Angel by William Hjortsberg, and is generally faithful to the novel with the exceptions being the introduction of a child of Epiphany Proudfoot conceived at a voodoo ceremony by "a devil", and that the novel never leaves New York City, whereas much of the action of the film occurs in New Orleans. ... Over the end credits, there is a lengthy sequence of a silhouetted Angel descending in an ancient iron Otis elevator cage, on his way to his execution and, ultimately, to Hell.

Drilling of the sonic rig that encountered gas at 90’ on Friday was stopped and plugged with cement and grout as they were unable to put in the water well due to the inability to control the gas pushing mud and water to the surface. DNR hired The Shaw Group engineers to redesign a well that can be placed for venting operations. The geo-probe rigs for observation continue to be placed at lower depths to check for the presence of gas. They’re currently working on the Dugas & LeBlanc property, north of LA-70 and two geo-probe wells have been placed on Triche property. DNR is currently looking for locations as well as willing individual property owners to place additional geo-probe observation wells.

The drilling rig is being dismantled and moved out today and will be replaced with the snubbing rig as we advised earlier this week. No road closures are anticipated; however, travelers may encur intermittent traffic congestion as equipment is being moved.

I know a story about the Devil
and a magician who tries to cheat him.

The Devil hires a private detective
to find the man, the cheating magician.

The novel that tells the story is set
entirely in New York. But filmmakers
moved most of the events of the story
to Louisiana, voodoo country.

The Devil of course is always aware
the private detective working the job
is the magician, lost down in himself.

But the Devil desires the magician
to find himself again, to know himself.

The filmmakers felt Louisiana
was the proper backdrop for that story.

Louisiana is a southern state
with a coast on the Gulf of Mexico.

I know a story about an oil rig
that blows up in the Gulf of Mexico
but I don’t think anyone has worked out
how the oil rig explosion story ends.

behind-the-scenes gossip:

Little Plastic Doll and Rubber Lizard
are in pre-production on a little film
about the Louisiana sinkhole.
They haven’t started filming yet
because they’re unhappy with the script
and are putting the writer through hell.
