This will give you some idea of the scope of the fires out in the LA/San Diego area today – watching the news last night, its just horrific. Everything seems to be on fire. There is even thinned out smoke and occasional bits of ash drifting over Santa Monica and Culver City.

Was looking up Hilti Shot Pins and came across this page.. crazy caver rock exploding advice? Here is a tidbit:

“Also, remember that if you ARE there, or maybe your head’s in the bucket, your vis will fall instantly to zero when the rock dust blasts from the hole. Underwater cave shaving is not to be taken lightly. Cave diving is the most dangerous sports pursuit possible and setting off explosions next to your head at the end of a 500m sump is like Neil Armstrong taking up nude tiger sucking.. with his head in a bucket.”

“It’s strange that fire moves in this and has eyes. Oh no, the fire’s coming. It’s going to eat you. Are these barrels alive, too? Everything’s alive. And Donkey Kong’s mouth is made of pluses. Look: Plus, plus, plus, minus. They’re trying to teach you math by brainwashing you.”

Kids play and comment on the video games we grew up on. Hilarious, and old feeling making, especially as this is my 29th birthday. Read the part about the ET game, I just almost spit coffee on my computer…Kids Play

Of course I yoinked the link from TMN

Today’s featured three letter bands—> ELO JET

Ablums are Out of the Blue and Get Born, respectively. Both rule.

Incidentally, ELO was on Jet records back then. And we all know abou the Wings connection I think.

I had the ELO album on vinyl, and had to go and get in on CD so I could listen at work. The album art on the original is incredible. If I can find a link to that, I will put one up. Or scan it myself.

A little about where I come from (the Northeast, not the Bronx though), and perhaps why I am not there anymore:

“Some people claim that American men have trouble expressing their emotions. Not at Yankee Stadium or Fenway Park. Toward the end of the game I attended in the Bronx, when it was clear the Yankees were going to win, the Yankee partisans turned to their brethren from the Bay State to let them know which part of the anatomy they resemble.

They started chanting a two-syllable word to summarize this conclusion. First they chanted it in reference to the Red Sox fans. Then they chanted it in reference to the Red Sox players. Then they chanted it in reference to nothing, just for the aesthetic satisfaction of it. Art for art’s sake.”

I have begun reading Salam Pax: The Clandestine Diary of an Ordinary Iraqi. Get it!!. It’s important. That’s all I can say. Or read it online at Where is Raed?

I still prefer reading analog.
