Quake! A film about the Long Beach Earthquake on March 10th, 1933

So those of you who are annoyed by Twitter and Facebook here is a good example of why they are important. I’m not a Twitter Fan, I can barely remember to do the dishes and easily forget about my Twitter duties. But as a tool that enables important information to be distributed quickly and cheaply, I think it’s great. The first reports of the earthquake in Haiti came from Twitter and Facebook. As limited as they were, they were able to distribute some images and critical info.

Can you imagine having to wait for this film to come out in order to get aid?
International House (1933 film) was what is said to be the first film to show an earthquake. (There was an actual earthquake during filming) In honor of the earthquake and the recent legalization of medical marijuana, in New Jersey I give you the famous Reefer Man performance by Cab Callaway from the movie International House which experienced an earthquake during filming.

Anyway, here’s a link to how to help.

    I had no idea the damage was so extensive in the 1933 quake. I have always seen the film clip of WC Fields making a movie during the quake (I think it was the same quake) and that clip gave me the impression the tremors were not strong.

    The Hati quake is clearly much worse. Horrible. Has anybody heard anything about the Dominican Republic? Are they helping? Did they have damage or injuries?
