Introduction
Greetings, I'm an author and theatrical type with a strong sense of fantasy and a limited grasp of reality. Much of the rest of it you'll have to learn by getting to know me. We're currently living aboard "Floating Empire", our self built Shantyboat, in Middle River Md. More on that at floatingempire.blogspot.com.

Greetings, your were inquiring about the Great Martian War video. I did some research as to the original author: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgZU6YxJ7b4

It is apparent the History Channel produced a two hour speculative history, with fake documentary. Rather interesting.

They used both real footage and reenactment for the WW1 footage... the rest, well, that was the fun part.

I do believe I can manage the time to meet up with you! A few friends and I are going, and a short meet up wouldn't be to hard to get to! I hope to see you there!
