Welcome to Santa Monica California.
Janet Nguyen’s story is amazing.
A Foley Artist is a sound effects technician who emulates the work of Jack Foley.
Terrence Aloysius Gorcey was one of my favorite 1940s Hollywood stars when I was a kid.
Gene Cernan.was 11th and last astronaut to set foot on the moon. The documentary “The Last Man On The Moon” could have included more technical information and less of his private life, but it’s still interesting.
From the “Who The Hell Is That?” Department:
Name the rock icon pictured above. Answer is below the break. Take a guess before you click, leave your initial suss in the comments.
The “music” is irritating as hell, but with the videos it becomes awesome. If I embedded it correctly, it should play 13 short clips in sequence, and you can jump to the next one if you wish.

Old radio shows used similar sound effect techniques.
“Radio is the theater of the mind; television is the theater of the mindless.” – Steve Allen
Also note that the vid was a GM-sponsored short, so the good guys catch the bad guys in the end because the good guys are in a Chevrolet and the bad guys are only on horses.
“Rarg is a land so perfect that the sun never rises until it is absolutely sure that everyone is awake. It is a wonderful place where everyone loves learning and making new discoveries. Until one day, an astonishing discovery is made… a discovery that might just be a problem.”
So where do we go from here? Oh, hell. I know: a sappy cover of Santo & Johnny.
Buzzchopper‘s other stuff sounds like Surf Ramones to me, and they opened for Mink Stole in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 2010. Last time I passed through Harrisburg, you couldn’t buy beer or wine in a convenience store or in a supermarket, and that means that something’s seriously wrong with that place.
To all our frozen friends back east, awesome happens at about 1:00.
Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here for leftovers.
Food, football, and…oppression. That’s what Thanksgiving has come to mean to many Americans. Back in 2007, Seattle public school officials made national news by describing the holiday as a “time of mourning” and a “bitter reminder of 500 years of betrayal.” This new narrative describes the Pilgrims as arrogant oppressors who fled persecution only to become persecutors themselves, depriving Native Americans of their land and their lives. But this is wrong on every count.
Should Americans celebrate Thanksgiving as a day of gratitude? Or should they mourn it as a day of guilt? Michael Medved, author of The American Miracle, shares the fascinating story of the first Thanksgiving.
Have a great Thanksgiving, folks, and remember to pray that we may always celebrate this important Holiday. – Bunk Strutts
