The Perfect Storm Birds

Wednesday, 16 June 2021

An image of a storm (near Earth, Texas, by photographer Laura Rowe) was posted on Facebook recently by Pam M.

Then someone enhanced it…

I ramped it up a notch, just because.

LOBSTERMAN SWALLOWED AND PUKED UP BY WHALE

Saturday Matinee – Old Buckers, Roy Buchanan, Pete Anderson & The Swamp Shakers

Saturday, 12 June 2021

Buckin’ and beer. Buck dancing is related to clogging, flat footing, step dancing, and this film from the 1950s refers to it as skiffle. You already know about beer.

Roy Buchanan, aka “The World’s Greatest Unknown Guitarist,” from a PBS documentary 1971. Buchanan was most famously associated with a 1953 Fender Telecaster nicknamed ‘Nancy’. In 1988 he was arrested for public intoxication and was found hanged from his own shirt in the Fairfax County Virginia Jail. He was 48.

Pete Anderson was “the very first true rocker in the entire former Soviet Union” and formed The Swamp Shakers in Riga, Latvia, in 2009. Anderson passed away in 2016, but The Swamp Shakers continue performing as a trio.

Getting kinda late, so I’ll wrap this up and send it off to the internest. Have a great weekend, we’ll have more fun tomorrow.

Geldingadalir Volcano in Iceland went though its almost 3 month existence through different phases of eruptions. First it was Explosive Eruption, then Fire Lava Geyser, Strombolian Eruption and now is in Hawaiian Effusive Eruption. In couple of last days eruptions are coming back in almost exactly 10 minutes intervals. These Three Eruption in this video were taken last night (June 8/9 2021). This program compliment yesterday footage taken during the day time and it’s up to you decide whether Volcano Eruption are better during the day or night.” –  Jiri VonDrak

Confess your racism, Susie.

Thursday, 10 June 2021

Teach your preschooler that skin color matters. Written by a racist for racists, it’s sold in the children’s section at Target.

I debated with myself on whether or not to post this, but then the voice in my head asked, “What are you afraid of?” The voice made a good point, so there it is.

[The 1st video posted here is related.]
