Anyone who follows our page is welcome to join in - and I'll likely be posting to the stream as well throughout.So - I hope you'll join me, and if they have a chance to drop in and say hello, I hope you'll get to meet a few of my co-conspirators, +Roger R.H.

Jessica Northey1,690,874Join +TWANGOUT  Wednesday October 24th starting 5pm PT!American Twangout with Twang Nation, Baron Lane, Joe Whyte, Heather Fay and Ryan Van SickleWe'll be talking about Americana and folk music with +Twang Nation, +Joe Whyte, +HEATHER FAY, +Ryan Van Sickle as well as +Rita Ballou We'll talk about what Americana music is and some performances showing difference styles!A few weeks ago, I wrote about the never-ending debate about the definition of Country Music. As tough as that is, it’s nothing compared to how one defines the term “Americana.” In writing about this topic, I’m going to be (gasp!) honest about my thoughts – as they were when you first started hearing the term to describe a musical genre. There were several artists who had been favorites of the Country genre who no longer found themselves played on mainstream radio. Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris were two examples of this. Crowell had a string of top tens from 1988-1992, but all of a sudden his name disappeared from radio playlists. The same happened to Emmylou Harris following her 1988 top ten “Heartbreak Hill.” Critics of the musical format said it was that Country Music had changed – and gotten more pop and rock influenced. That is true – but, only halfway. If you listen to some of Harris’s post 1992 work, as well as Crowell’s, you’ll find some different sounds and subject matter that they weren’t doing earlier. That’s not saying they weren’t doing great music – but it WAS different than their own music that was played on top-40 Country radio just a few years earlier. So, (at least in my mind), that’s how the Americana format was born– as a place for acts who weren’t getting the commercial reception that they once had.Ok, I know I just offended several of my friends Americana & Folk Music Twangout with Twang Nation's Baron Lane, Joe Whyte, Heather Fay and Ryan Van Sickle.2012-10-25 02:00:0047

Daniel Mihai Popescu61,717One of my Engagers circles :)Dedicated to you, it comes without string attached. I just hope you don't mind mentioning you all in the comments, since my notifications don't work. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  A "+1" will be more than enough for members :)I am sad when I see someone removing accounts he follows after a couple of weeks of "inactivity", no matter the communication and the good collaboration they have with the removed accounts. People letting the software to work for them, people with less defined scopes here, or quite very good defined.I have just used +Circloscope to have a look on the activity :)I remember faces, I remember names, I know guys from other networks, I can't bring myself to remove them when they haven't posted here for more than one week, one month, or even three.Where are we going? Isn't there enough room for everybody, or are some of you just bored of my rants?I hope you enjoy this circle, and tell me if I forgot someone. Thank you!2014-10-21 21:34:32481001
Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469333748

Brian Buckley56,642Sharing My Aug 30 Engagers Showcase CircleHappy Saturday. Here is my latest circle of engaging plussers. Again with this post I am giving away a special prize with this share. Make sure you read the entire post to see how to qualify for the giveaway! There is a very special person who I follow that doesn't like to be included in a mass circle share. This is because she doesn't think her taste is everyone else's cup of tea. She's +Pam Adger   and she is an amazing, articulate, kind person. Some of her posts don't suit everyone's tastes, so she's not in this circle.  I'm recommending that you add her manually. Consider this a bonus for reading this much of my post.If her tastes aren't for you, then don't add her.READ ON - GIVEAWAY INFORMATION TO COMEThe Engagers Showcase part means that I would love for you to share a link to one of your own recent posts in the comment stream here. That is a unique feature of this type of circle and it's a lot of fun. It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it. There are lots of new people in this circle. This is your chance to make some great new connections.Here's the second bonus for reading this far. You have a chance to win one of our coveted "Blue Footed Boobies" tee shirts. Everyone in this circle (plus Pam) who shares a link to a post will be added into a new circle. +Terry McNeil won the shirt that we gave away on the last share two weeks ago. See Terry here: http://goo.gl/UK5D5X   We will give one member of that new circle a tee shirt as pictured in this post: http://goo.gl/2MJGE4If you don't have a public post of your own that you would like to share you can include a link to someone else's awesome post that you like.SHARING COMMENTING PLUSSINGAll the above are welcome and appreciated, but please do any of the above for your own reasons. You are in this circle already because of our interactions or because I admire what you do online and I want to recommend you to others. This is not a snowball circle. You don't get in or out by the same criteria as most circles.Thanks again everyone. Enjoy and thank you for your engagement Good luck with the giveaway :) #engagersshowcasecircle   #sharedcircles   #engagers          2014-08-30 15:50:4138622268165

The Breakfast Club

I'm putting this out to the universe. Remember this film? Poignant. Goodnight, all!

The Breakfast Club (2/8) Movie CLIP - Social Clubs (1985) HD

Toward the end of the day (in the film) , the other students ask Brian to write the essay that Vernon assigned earlier. Brian does so, but instead of writing about the assigned topic, he writes a letter objecting to Vernon's request to describe who they are, stating that the man has already judged who they are "in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions": a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.

The Fire-Eating Dragon Guitar

This guitar is insane. You can just see the smoke rising off the blazing notes, as the musician kicks this into the stratosphere. Smokin'!

"It is hand carved wood into the shape of a dragon head. The mouth is open and the bottom jaw is designed to where you can still reach the higher frets for solos. It is cutaway like that for a reason. It is also a seven string baritone guitar, which means it can play really low notes as well as screeching high notes. The reason I described it as screeching is because it has an insanely high amount of frets, otherwise known as each individual square on the neck. It has a total of 32 whereas a standard guitar normally only has 22. "

Genius , or The Stupidest Thing You've Seen In a While?

This feels like a HIPSTER sort of post, but I have to ask: would you wear/sleep in this? With these record-breaking Polar Vortex snow storms lately, it's a valid question.

Les Paul & 'The Log': The Father of All Electrical Guitars?

During the 1930s, inventive individuals experimented with guitar bodies made from a solid piece of wood rather than soundboards over a hollow chamber—partly for ease of fabrication, partly to prevent feedback.

One of the most prominent innovators was Les Paul. He made this guitar by taking a 4x4-inch solid block of pine, fitting it with two homemade electronic pickups, and then gluing on the halves of a hollow-body guitar to make it look slightly more conventional.

Around 1946, Paul took his "log" idea to Gibson. Although the company did not use his design as a prototype, it did work with him and used his name to promote its first line of solid-body guitars in the 1950s.

Make Your Own Viking Beer Mug

Man (or woman, sheesh. -ed.) + Beer = Happy. Some say that's the formula to a pretty blissful life, but it's not just the beer you're drinking—it's about what you're drinking it in.

Drinking out of the bottle or pint glass is perfectly fine for the average person, but if you want to be above average and a little creative, then making a giant Viking Beer Mug needs to be on your to-do list. Lucky for us, Instructables user Bricobart laid out all the steps for us, and in the most manly way possible—without any power tools.

All you really need is a hatchet, knife, yard, wood, and some resin.

Work, Twitter, and Vanilla Ice

It's always great when a day goes your way. We received an industry pub that had the headline: "Westar's 'Pool Netr' may be service pro's best friend." That was in Service Industry News, an influential pub for the pool industry.

Then, I had posted about a cool spa/pool that Vanilla Ice had, and he retweeted it to his followers, and added us! All around, not a bad day. We're still waiting on that one big order, but I know it will happen. Christmas Magic is just around the corner.

P.S. I've offered to send him one. That'd be cool. The builder, +Van Kirk & Sons Pools & Spas is getting one, too!

Handcrafted Window Design by H J Nick & the Scottsdale Art Factory

This carved tree starts at the roots and goes all the way to the top branches, with one cute squirrel thrown in for good measure. The craftsmanship is stunning, and I can only imagine the lofty prices for work like this. You rarely see work like this any longer, but when you do, wow. Your heart stops. And your mind reminds you that work like this used to be the norm. 

The website is a mess, but the information is cool.

MEGADUEL 1: Rock Versus Metal!

Okay FNS fans, keep this under your hat, but I heard a rumor that there might be a Dueling DJs show coming up with ROCK VS. METAL. It may or may not be on the 30th, on a Sunday, at 6pm Pacific, during +Sarah Lynne ("Metalynne")'s Subdural Hematoma show (but yeah, that's probably likely). How do I know? Because I (moi) will be playing rock music and Sarah will be playing metal music. So let's call it a done deal. 

It will be an entire DUELING show, and we'll tally up the +1's at the end to determine the winner, which I know will be me. grin

So -- mark your calendar. This is going to be EPIC (just like the duels I had with +Yonatan Zunger and +Andrew Coffman way back when), but with much more aggressiveness and posturing.

If you're my ROCK fans, start your engines NOW, and get ready for this EPIC end to the Turkey Day Weekend! It's going to be KILLER! And if yer Sarah's metal fans, I heard there is a live concert in your town that night with Mötley Crüe, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Dope, Mudvayne, Motorhead and ten others - the tickets are only $5 and the audience is limited to 100 people. :-) That ear-splattering concert that you absolutely cannot miss is sadly during our show.

Bad Robot, Ubu, Amblin, Lazy Llama: What Would You Name Your Production or Film Company?

Well, being a kid who grew up on television and with hanging out at the movies all the time, the company names at the end credits always stayed with me. I decided some years back that when I had one of my films picked up, I would name my production company Lazy Llama Films. The reason was that I received a huge llama from my grandmother many years ago, and llama's always seemed slightly absurd to me. As does that name. So it stuck.

If you wrote a TV series or created a film company, what would you name it?

Here are some ending credits to give you an idea. Get creative and let the world in on your secret! I always imagined my llama racing to a stop at Machu Picchu and the llama's neck becoming part of the logo/name. Yes, I have that sort of mind. ha!

Ever have one of those movies from years, or decades ago (in some cases) that you remember everything about the day you first saw it? Raiders did that for me.

Birdcage Cinema. Citrus Heights, California. The first showing, with huge lines. It was a dollar theater, so I know I saw it before then, but that I don't remember. Just this theater, spending what little money we had. Then we hit the comic book store next door where I picked up some Fantastic Four comics, and the arcade next to the bowling alley after that. In my mind like it happened yesterday. But it was, cough, June of 1981. Another trip down memory lane.

The Fire-Eating Dragon Guitar

This guitar is insane. You can just see the smoke rising off the blazing notes, as the musician kicks this into the stratosphere. Smokin'!

"It is hand carved wood into the shape of a dragon head. The mouth is open and the bottom jaw is designed to where you can still reach the higher frets for solos. It is cutaway like that for a reason. It is also a seven string baritone guitar, which means it can play really low notes as well as screeching high notes. The reason I described it as screeching is because it has an insanely high amount of frets, otherwise known as each individual square on the neck. It has a total of 32 whereas a standard guitar normally only has 22. "

Drawn The Road Again: The Sketches of Chandler O'Leary

Her work is brilliant and chock full of storytelling. I especially liked the Xmas one with the story of each ornament. You can get lost in her illustrations...

My name is Chandler O’Leary. I graduated with a degree in illustration from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), and run a small business as an illustrator and lettering artist. I live in Washington state with my lovely husband (whom I refer to as “the Tailor” because he makes his own clothes and wishes to remain anonymous) and our tiny stick-shift Subaru sedan. We both love to travel, but I’m the real nut in the family.

For one thing, I have lived all over the U.S. and even in Italy—so the urge to wander is deeply ingrained. And I am the one who will choose the squiggliest line on the map, rather than the Interstate highway, every singletime. I a... more »

And I am the one who will choose the squiggliest line on the map, rather than the Interstate highway, every single time. I am the one who gets excited about driving 200 miles out of my way to see a giant concrete prairie dog. I am the one who will add an extra day to our trip to make sure we have enough time to spend at Wall Drug. I also have a thing for jackalopes, I brake for any coffee-pot-shaped building, and I have a bright yellow hat shaped like cartoon Swiss cheese.

Creative Fireplaces Made of Decommissioned Naval Mines

If you’re bored with usual fireplaces then creative fireplaces designed by sculptor Mati Karmin for Marinemine might be exactly what you need.

Each of these fireplaces is made from decommissioned naval mines. They are divided into two subgroups: round fireplaces with round illuminator frames and fireplaces are made of full naval mines shaped like ellipsoids. I really doubt you can find something more creative to decorate your interior and make it warmer.

The Dying Dynex, My Best Buy cheapo Set from last year

Has anyone tried to repair their LCD TV on their own? I have the Dynex™ - 40" Class (39-1/2" Diag.) - LED - 720p - HDTV and the sound is completely %^!@ed up. Even when I use a sound bar and the volume on the set is set to ZERO, massive & loud crackling sounds ensue. Sometimes it stops, other times it goes on for hours if I let it.

I know this is a cheapo TV but I hate to pitch it if there's a chance it can be saved (though I'm ready for a 1080p or 4k set for sure!) I have another set I'll use for now, but I was curious if anyone has tried to fix their sound before. Thanks!

FNS

I'm not sure exactly what I want to say here, but almost every Friday night for the last THREE YEARS I've done a Friday night show on the +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS page. I play videos, I take requests, and I comment in real time. That's the show. I committed to this back in 2011, and now we are the longest running music show on Google+, hands down.

Lately, though, it's been like pulling teeth to get comments and requests. Maybe it's the changing of the seasons,  or maybe I suck at choosing themes. Whatever it is -- I hope that our longtime fans will pop on back at some point, and make me work during my slot. I miss my regulars! Some days, I feel like the love is gone, and I question why I keep doing this. But then my brain kicks in and reminds me that I found my love of music again directly through my FNS shows!

Motorcycle Thrill Show

There's something about vintage motorcycle racing posters that's always appealed to the kid inside. The speed, the thrills, the danger.

You have to love this one: his name is right out of an old dime novel -- Capt. Putt Mossman. And you not only get dare-devils, you also get men, a clown, A.M.A. riders, and a girl. You get it all. Yes, it's a THRILL SHOW and JAMBOREE!

I thought they paid good attention to details in this ad about soldiers during WWI. I thought about +Paul Stickland and his grandfather, +Geoffrey Squire.

Mostly, though, I thought about the monumental loss that all families have had to endure when their sons and daughters head off into the unknown mist that circles and engulfs all wars.

h/t to +craig I for the find.

The making of video is interesting as well.

DLR2 by Lou Ros, on Saatchi

Goodnight, all. I always enjoy discovering artists on saatchiart.com and I saw this one tonight. It caught my eye because I've had this intense eye-socket pain all day. The weather's changing, a new season is coming upon us (the snowflakes on my car this morning were the big clue) and I never know exactly how to alleviate this deep bone pain. 

So when I saw this work by French artist Lou Ros, my mind saw needles protruding from his face, and agony all around. I'm not sure if this was the artist's intent (it is a bit Messianic,), but my mind saw what it saw, in those moments of scathing intensity.

It makes me think how we can perceive art in different ways, depending on things like pain levels, and the comfort of our lives, and our situations in life.

It makes me think how we can perceive art in different ways, depending on things like pain levels, and the comfort of our lives, and our situations in life. 

When you're in pain, things like art and "normalcy" seem so distant. But I imagine that Lou Ros was aware of that to a degree with this work. It's one of those pieces that you can see in a gallery or museum, and stare at for hours on end...

A Soldier’s Room Has Remained Virtually Untouched Since WWI

This is the whole story, so no need to click through. Eerie story, and interesting video. Would you make a request like this? Would you want your space to be "preserved" 500 years into the future?

French WWI soldier's bedroom frozen in time

In the village of Belabre, France, about two hours southwest of Paris, a centuries-old home contains a room frozen in time. Hubert Rochereau, a young French soldier, was deployed to the Belgian battlefield during World War I and never returned home, the BBC reports. To honor their fallen son, his parents included a request in their home's deed: to keep Hubert's bedroom exactly as he had left it for the next 500 years.

French WWI soldier's bedroom frozen in time

In the village of Belabre, France, about two hours southwest of Paris, a centuries-old home contains a room frozen in time. Hubert Rochereau, a young French soldier, was deployed to the Belgian battlefield during World War I and never returned home, the BBC reports. To honor their fallen son, his parents included a request in their home's deed: to keep Hubert's bedroom exactly as he had left it for the next 500 years.

Hubert was just 21 when he died in 1918, and his bedroom reflects his young age. His shelves are filled with books of an early 20th century high school—grammar manuals and surveys of great French literary works. His bed, a tiny twin, is covered by "an old-fashioned crochet coverlet . . . something a mother would tuck in around her child," the BBC writes. Other possessions include Hubert's gun, knife and hand-rolled cigarettes.

The home's current owner, no relation to Hubert's family, has respected their wish to keep the room almost exactly as Hubert left it. He says he can't relate to that long-dead young man: "He was young, a military officer, and I imagine him to be quite provincial, perhaps even narrow-minded," he told the BBC. "But it's part of the history of the house, so I keep it."

His daughter—set to inherit the house—has agreed to keep the room as it is, too.

Goodnight, all.

I'm reminded of a few things with this picture. Just yesterday, there were ten deer standing in my long 1/4 mile driveway when I came home. Ten! As it gets darker so much earlier now, it was kind of comic. My brights were on them, they weren't particularly motivated to move. The usual.

I'm also thinking about tonight: snow is due to hit our area over the next few days. Our first snow of the season. Last year was brutal: mountains of snow around us, so I'm hoping it's a bit lighter this year.

And finally, when the snow's come, that's usually when I pull out my well-worn copy of The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. As a lifelong fan, I've tried to make it a point of re-reading his books year after year, right about this time each year.

Nothing's better than curling up to a warm heater, slumping down on the sofa, and falling back into his magical world of Middle Earth. But that's for tomorrow.

For tonight, I will say "Adieu" and go crawl under my electric blanket!

Goodnight, and may you have the most incredible dreams tonight!

I'm not at all certain I have the time for any additional networks, as my heart lies here, but I am @seancowen on ello if anyone cares to look me up. I have no idea whatsoever how that network works, so it's like my first day here in a way A new adventure.

For now, this is the picture you'll see of me there, until I find something appropriate. Not sure why I chose this, except that it's ancient, like me. hehe

The Tombstone Question

If you could be known for ONE thing when you go to the hereafter, what would you like to be known for? The others can be important as well, but this category would lead off the text of your tombstone...

1. Philanthropy & Charity -- your good deeds and altruism have helped to make the world a better place.

2. Inventions & Creations -- you invented or created something that will be remembered for years or centuries or even for a millennium. Maybe that involves objects, or artwork, buildings or designs, music or paintings. It could involve the arts or sciences or any subject where inventions and creation is involved.

4. Devotion to Family & Your Fellow Man -- you'd love your tombstone to reflect the love you had of your family and fellow man. First and foremost. Everything else is below this.

5. Love I loved other people, I shared my love with family and friends (and the world) and that is what this life entire journey is all about: love. Not hate, not war, not malevolence. Love.

Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite Ice Cube Tray

"THE EMPIRE WILL COMPENSATE YOU IF HE MELTS"

Carbonite is cold! Works with chocolate too. That doesn't really have the same sort of dramatic impact, does it? Still, that's basically what Darth Vader meant when he was talking to Boba Fett in the bowels of Cloud City. Thankfully, you won't need to go to such extremes if your Han Solo Ice Cubes melt. You just stick them back in the freezer and through the magic of the exothermic process you'll have ice in no time at all.

But wait, how do you get Han Solo Ice Cubes in the first place? Well, simple enough, you just use one of our Han Solo Ice Cube Trays.

The Han Solo Ice Cube Tray comes with room for six (6) small, 1.75" Han Solos and one (1) large, 3.5" Solo. We're pretty sure that Boba Fett would be happy with just one... more »

The Han Solo Ice Cube Tray comes with room for six (6) small, 1.75" Han Solos and one (1) large, 3.5" Solo. We're pretty sure that Boba Fett would be happy with just one smuggler on ice but seven would be a serious payday! The silicone on the mold is good down to -40F so don't try using these on Hoth. They should be fine in your average household freezer though.

Product Specifications

Officially-Licensed Star Wars Collectible
Freezer safe down to -40F
7 Han Solos (6 small and 1 large)
Still only worth one bounty

Bounty Hunter Pro Tip: For crystal clear ice, boil the water twice before pouring it into the tray (allowing the water to cool between each boil). The boiling "deareates the water (i.e. forces dissolved air molecules out). This process also works on various life forms when preparing them for "long term storage".

Castello Cavalcanti by Wes Anderson (a short film)

Stumbled on this by accident. I had heard about it a while back but hadn't seen it until now. The usual Wes style is here and its a fun little film that has Jason Schwartzman in it as a race car driver. Its set in a small Italian village and it's worth watching.

Waffle House

Can anyone tell me why these are in every town in the South? In Ohio we have Subway's everywhere, so maybe it's kind of like that?

In the last week, I've been in the car for over 36 hours of driving time, and I drove 2,400+ miles from Ohio to Orlando, Florida, and back, and this is the one constant in all the states I drove through. The McDonald's of the south, maybe? Seriously, they are everywhere and their food is amazingly perfect for that breakfast to start your day. Mmmmmm. Bacon!

We could do another picture of ... all the white lies I told or all the people I took the time to listen to, or all the people weve helped in our life.

The Space Coast

Apollo 11 launch, July 16, 1969

It's kind of eerie, being here in Central Florida. I can't help thinking about +NASA and the space program while I'm here. I'm not at Cape Canaveral (which is much farther down south) as I was on a previous trip - but echoes of the Apollo program, and the golden days of the space race are strong in my mind.

Florida is all about reaching for the stars, and this #spacegeek  is always going to feel at home here. I only wish I had some time to head down to the Cape again, but maybe next time!

We Had the Best Night Tonight at BB Kings in Orlando!'

We Had the Best Night Tonight at BB Kings in Orlando!'

As part of our #poolspapatio  show here in Orlando, there was a welcome party tonight at BB KIngs. +Blaine Hall and I made our way to a back patio area and we were humming along and being boring until we invited some people we'd never met before over to join us.

I can't remember the last time we had such a great night and this was a phenomenally good night for us. So, here's your mission: Robbie and I talked throughout the night about G+ and while he's been on here forever, he doesn't have much interaction here. Let's see if we can't change that.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

Add +Robert Berriz to your circles and let me show him how cool this community is! Do it as a favor to me - and know that my recommendation is golden here - he is one cool guy that we are damned glad we met. Serendipity, people. Serendipity! I so enjoyed Robert's stories of traveling the world and I loved hearing about his passion for playing the flamenco guitar. Man, what a night!!

We're in Orlando!

We checked-in mid afternoon yesterday (cannot believe the sheer volume of huge restaurants within a one mile radius). It was lightly cool last night, so we had a dinner out on the terrace. We're staying at the Rosen Inn and if anyone's in the area tonight, drop by the sports bar around 7pm and we should be hanging out, relaxing. 

Today is the big day for us. We have to get our booth set up entirely (no easy feat in the 2nd largest convention center in America). It should be crazy (as is the insane traffic here). I feel like I'm in a daze after driving for 1150 miles (but its 5:30am, I have coffee, and I'm wide awake.) Excited, I guess. We're here all week long...

6:48 am and we're in the cold Cumberland Gap area of Tennessee. Drove 550 miles yesterday and will shoot for getting into Orlando tonight. Long drive ahead today - but easier in the daylight. The adventure continues.

When you guys travel -- do you ever watch the local news? It's always interesting looking at the differences (and similarities...) Talk later...

The Breakfast Club

I'm putting this out to the universe. Remember this film? Poignant. Goodnight, all!

The Breakfast Club (2/8) Movie CLIP - Social Clubs (1985) HD

Toward the end of the day (in the film) , the other students ask Brian to write the essay that Vernon assigned earlier. Brian does so, but instead of writing about the assigned topic, he writes a letter objecting to Vernon's request to describe who they are, stating that the man has already judged who they are "in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions": a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.

Walt Disney Hit The Nail on the Head!

As a four-time Graduate Coach for large Dale Classes, this is a huge component of what we teach students: how to stop worrying. It is in the back of my mind as our road trip to Florida starts tomorrow (er - today) but I believe that my enthusiasm will win out over worry.

Many of you who have followed me for a long time know that I work for a company that is literally "betting the farm" on a new product for owners of swimming pools. 100% made in the USA and so cool - our pool net is all I will be talking about for a week in Orlando, Florida.

We're going to the second largest convention center in America, we're introducing a new product that the world has never seen - and if this was a poker game -- "we're all in." My company believes in me and my passion for what we have, and I believe in them. At this stage in my life, there is absolutely no way I would be doing this if I didn't wake up every single day knowing -- knowing that we have the coolest thing ever to hit this segment of the industry. Something that has never been seen before!

So, I hope to be able to report to you all in one week that my life has been turned upside down and that the "splash" we wanted to make, happened. I truly believe that this will be the case. No, I'm not worrying at this point; I am ecstatic that in just a few days all of the months and months of hard work is going to pay off in a huge way. 

My life is about to change, and I couldn't be more thrilled! I'll keep you all posted as we travel down through Indiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, and Florida. This is going to be a blast!

Google+: This Is The First Area I'd Tackle If We're Talking About New and Future Changes

Here's the thing: I've been very vocal about changes on this UI (basically since Day One). I'm not afraid to speak my mind -- and sometimes I get great responses and I'll have +Dave Besbris or +Yonatan Zunger weigh in. That is awesome!

I know the G+ teams constantly work towards improving this UI, but within the limitations of the 5-question structure of Polls which of these five topics is most important to you? 

Which of these five broad areas would thrill you to see genuine movement towards improvement going on?

Which of these five broad areas would thrill you to see genuine movement towards improvement going on? Leave comments and let's see if we can't continue this ongoing dialogue with all the great Googlers who constantly communicate with us, and who will continue to make this the destination we love...

NOTES

1. Algorithms - I've had many discussions about the main algorithms here on G+; some days they are right on, other days they're like a crazy person. They appear to often be bipolar. More work is needed, imho.

2. Hangouts - So many great improvements over the years, but I still think we're missing out on "next-level" improvements, especially with live events, concerts, and in conjunction with pages and businesses (even in areas of "shopping.") 

3. Our content - This is a tough area. "Content is King." You hear that everywhere, but some of us content creators have never seen anything resembling "King-like" treatment. I'm not certain where I'm going with this, but tsu is in the back of my mind, for sure. I need you thoughts on directions for this area.

4. Circles, presentation, formatting -- All of these topics have been addressed by hundreds over the years. Improvements trickle in, but it seems that some things need to be more open to users at some point. Maybe I'm talking about Developers here. Hmm.

5. Other Things - This is a broad category, but it has to be by design and the limitations of a five-question poll. So this is the place to vote for this area; this is the choice that will then require a bit more explanation in the comments.

‘Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways’: Review by Andrew Barker/Varierty

I watched the second episode about Washington, D.C. and it was incredibly well done. So much deep background on the punk scene and bands I identified with in my youth. The stories are rich and I think Grohl has a second career as a master storyteller and filmmaker.

The Trailer:
Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Trailer (HBO)

For his eight-episode HBO docuseries “Sonic Highways,” creator, director, executive producer, Foo Fighter and professional cool-older-brother Dave Grohl has hatched a novel premise: With his band and producer Butch Vig in tow, he travels to eight different cities, explores their particular musical histories, and records a newly written song in each.

‘Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways’: Review by Andrew Barker/Varierty

I watched the second episode about Washington, D.C. and it was incredibly well done. So much deep background on the punk scene and bands I identified with in my youth. The stories are rich and I think Grohl has a second career as a master storyteller and filmmaker.

The Trailer:
Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Trailer (HBO)

For his eight-episode HBO docuseries “Sonic Highways,” creator, director, executive producer, Foo Fighter and professional cool-older-brother Dave Grohl has hatched a novel premise: With his band and producer Butch Vig in tow, he travels to eight different cities, explores their particular musical histories, and records a newly written song in each. In practice, the series is less a voyage of discovery than a guided tour through Grohl’s personal musical obsessions and Rolodex — the trip is always pleasant and sometimes even thrilling, but one can’t help but hope this “Highway” will take a few more left turns down the road.

As he demonstrated in his directorial debut, “Sound City,” Grohl retains a relentless, almost childlike enthusiasm for the key records, musicians and producers in his life, and that enthusiasm goes a long way toward compensating for some of his more didactic impulses. For Grohl and like-minded Generation Xers, punk rock will always be what Woodstock was to the generation previous – the philosophical and aesthetic high-water mark by which every other musical movement, no matter how unrelated, must ultimately be judged. Whether that’s an asset or a shortcoming here largely depends on the destination.

The series’ opening episode, set in Chicago, sees scant mention of the Windy City’s seminal house music, soul music, jazz, gospel and modern indie rock scenes, while allotting plenty of time to cult ’80s punkers Naked Raygun and nigh-unknown kiddie-group Verboten (in which Grohl’s teenage cousin played drums). Grohl does acknowledge the 90-year-old elephant in the room by interviewing Buddy Guy and Bonnie Raitt about Chicago blues, but he’s clearly more comfortable dwelling on topics with which he has personal involvement.

Appropriately, the most rewarding segment concerns Steve Albini, the legendarily intransigent musician and engineer who would surely be a very rich man if not for his refusal to accept royalties on the albums he’s produced, which includes Nirvana’s “In Utero.” Albini talks openly about his resultant financial struggles, and in the episode’s most pointed exchange, Naked Raygun singer Jeff Pezzati addresses Grohl behind the camera, saying, “You know more than anybody what he’s leaving on the table.”

Grohl’s subjectivity proves more valuable in the series’ far superior second episode, set in his hometown of Washington, D.C. Not only does this hour see some real personal passion from our humble narrator, it also has the advantage of focusing on two roughly contemporaneous, thoroughly local scenes: the go-go music of Chuck Brown and Trouble Funk, and the hardcore punk of the Bad Brains and Minor Threat. Embracing a more limited scope, Grohl dwells on the details and allows the dialogues to dig much deeper. (For this reason, looking at the destinations for remaining episodes, it’s easy to get more excited about Austin and Seattle than New York or Nashville.)

Eminently amiable, Grohl proves a generous interviewer throughout, eliciting easy discourse from such prickly figures as Albini and Ian MacKaye. (Considering MacKaye’s decades of uncompromising leftism, hearing the Fugazi frontman wax poetic about Ted Nugent is a delicious shock to the system.) Attempts to spread narration duties to his bandmates are well-intentioned, even if guitarist Pat Smear registers little beyond casual bemusement, and drummer Taylor Hawkins says very little with very high enthusiasm.

Grohl’s style as a director is much like his style as a conversationalist: highly earnest, highly caffeinated, and sometimes a tad on-the-nose. However, it’s his interest in the practical details of recording – from consoles and instruments to the masonry work in the studio walls – that most distinguishes him from his less technical fellow rockists. Up-close glimpses of Electrical Audio and Inner Ear studios will prove particularly valuable to anyone who immediately recognizes those names.

Board Games Warriors: What Games Do You Play (and win) That Tick Off Your Competitors?

I have been known to be fairly competitive when it comes to board games. I can't help myself - my noggin is great at Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit. My inner warrior is great at Risk and Battleship. My little inner businessman is smashing at Monopoly. Throw in Clue and I've got a good group there. How about you?

1. What are your favorite board games and how good are you? (this is a safe, bragging zone. ha!

2. What games do you love to play even if you're not always the winner? (the play's the thing with these...)

3. What games do you always try to play with friends whenever you have the chance? (they can be board games, online games, apps, video games, multiplayer games -- anything goes here.

What Year Were You Born In?

Obviously all years can't be included here, so I made some broad groups. I'm curious as to the age group of the people who follow me and more curious to see if you like responding to these polls. I think they're quite easy and pretty engaging. Really only including 18+ if anyone's curious.

If you feel like leaving a comment --- what single word do you think describes your age group? For example, I might say vintage for the 1955 or earlier, or maybe optimistic. I know one word is hard, but give it a try!

I missed this yesterday as so many last-minute things are going on for our trip to Orlando(leaving tomorrow). When +byron rempel asks for help, I always do whatever I can, just as I have always done.

You can get some amazing artwork out of helping out or you can make a straight donation and feel good about helping out a cool artist. At this point - it seems that he's opened up his entire vault, so I think now would be the perfect time for purchases (and great for Xmas, too!)

Hey googlers! Thanks for all the kind words and support over the last few weeks, and especially in the last couple of days. It's great meeting and drawing all sorts of new people. As many of you know I have been struggling with the inner demons on and off for years, and it got especially bad in these last few months ... but somehow #inktober  seemed to really help snap me back to where I started, and where I want to continue to be. Strange how things that are just a little joke can work wonders on the mind.

With one hurdle out of the way the next one is in front of me and I'm trying to get over it, but I think I need some help. And as much as I hate asking ... I'm asking for your help.

My sales have been way down these last few months and today it all came to a head. I'm now officially behind in my mortgage and the hydro needs to be paid. I need to raise at least $500

Donations are great, if anyone wants to go that route, my paypal address is idrawzombies@hotmail.com but I really have about 200+ pieces of artwork I would love to get rid of. Anyone that makes a donation of $10 or more I will mail you out something I would normally price at $35 or higher. If I've drawn your portrait in the past, I'd be happy to mail that out to you. If you want a quick portrait then I can do that too.

You can also check out my store here: zombies.storenvy.com

I'm in a real bind and I have no one else to turn to.
If you can't buy, please share.

Thanks for reading, and thanks again for your continued support.___I missed this yesterday as so many last-minute things are going on for our trip to Orlando(leaving tomorrow). When +byron rempel asks for help, I always do whatever I can, just as I have always done.

Bats & Other Assorted Creatures: Meet Jessica Joslin, the artist who creates new critters from creature corpses

Jessica creates ‘creatures’ from the bones of animals and discarded brass scrap metal. The figures command your attention and emit a sense of wonder mixed with the macabre – they evoke feelings most of us left behind a long time ago when we put down childish things and took up the reins of adulthood.

A monkey riding a tricycle wearing a fez and a deer decorated with a Cleopatra-style headdress watch us with dead black eyes, as she tells us about how she assembled her menagerie.

Bats & Other Assorted Creatures: Meet Jessica Joslin, the artist who creates new critters from creature corpses

Jessica creates ‘creatures’ from the bones of animals and discarded brass scrap metal. The figures command your attention and emit a sense of wonder mixed with the macabre – they evoke feelings most of us left behind a long time ago when we put down childish things and took up the reins of adulthood.

A monkey riding a tricycle wearing a fez and a deer decorated with a Cleopatra-style headdress watch us with dead black eyes, as she tells us about how she assembled her menagerie.

“I don’t go looking for roadkill any more,” she says in a low, husky voice. “I buy the bones from osteological suppliers – and I know a lot of bone dealers. If you find a bone and you don’t know where it came from, you can get into trouble for using it. Finding a skull on the street doesn’t mean you can keep it.” 

Jessica shows Bizarre  cabinets and drawers stuffed with the skulls and bones of birds and small mammals, all as bright and white as children’s teeth. When she lived in the country, she’d go on roadkill scavenging trips and find the carcasses of birds and animals – but then had to work out how to clean her treasures before she could use them.

“I’d find dead bodies in the woods and wrap them in chicken wire to protect them from being carried away by wild animals,” she says. “I’d come back a couple of months later to find the elements had completely cleaned the bones.”

The main structure of Jessica’s sculptures are made from brass. Stuff found in junk shops and flea markets – light fittings, chandelier parts, decorative sconces, radiators and gas lamps – are also all fair game. She’s used to fitting strange things together as she also works as a commercial model maker, building prototypes of toys.

“Any one peculiar item with a nice patina can be the starting point of a new pet. I look for items that have an nice tone to them,” she explains.  “I spent many years building architectural models and toy prototypes where I needed an incredible level of precision. And I apply that to my art.”

Alpha House

I stumbled on this Amazon Prime original series by Garry Trudeau and now I'm four episodes in. Funny stuff and compelling. It occurs to me that we're well into the new world of television when I see shows like this, and shows on Netflix, Hulu, etc.

To me, it feels like the old model is completely dead. Give me standalone options like HBO will be offering (I'd have to have AMC also like that for The Walking Dead) and I see an epidemic of cord cutting on the horizon for all of us. I bet the networks have to be really sweating at this point. 

So far, the writing is really well done, the cameos are incredible, and the large group of recurring characters like Wanda Sykes and Haley Joel Osment make this a joy to watch.

Drill Tailed Squirrel & Other Assorted Animals - All Made From Found Parts...

Sculpture by UK sculptor Harriet Mead

The creativity you see with sculptors who work with found objects is quite often astounding. They take ordinary "found objects" and turn these new combinations into beautiful works of art. Their artistry and skills often boggles the mind

Harriet Mead on the Drill Tailed Squirrel

I tried to make the piece life size but it ended up a little too large. Despite my best efforts most pieces end up about 15 or 20 percent bigger than I intend. I think it is a combination of working with found objects and working in 3D. If I was using a malleable material such as plaster or clay I could remove or add volume fairly easily.

I tried to make the piece life size but it ended up a little too large. Despite my best efforts most pieces end up about 15 or 20 percent bigger than I intend. I think it is a combination of working with found objects and working in 3D. If I was using a malleable material such as plaster or clay I could remove or add volume fairly easily. With found objects I like to try and show as much of the shape of the original tool as possible and hesitate to grind volume away and ‘muddy’ the shapes.

The head has a variety of tiny spanners in it and the ears are made of a large wingnut that I cut in half and dinner forks with steel cable for the tufts. Although it is a bit obvious to use colour in the piece, I think it helps to show it is a red squirrel and not the larger grey. The bulk of the red comes from an old hand drill and a canterbury hoe along with a couple of pairs of pliers that had red handles. In addition I found a coat hook that I brought back from Sark with layers of white paint which was perfect for the white belly. The tail proved a problem until I hit on the idea of using old auger drill bits.

This is a very cool story, which of course means that Tom Hanks is involved! I loved seeing this and had to share it with you all. You never know who you'll meet in life, right?

"So get this. I'm driving down Park Avenue one day and this guy waves for me, so I pull over and I ask him where he's going. He tells me 74th street, and I tell him that's too far for me, because my shift just ended, so he says 'thanks anyway' and walks away. But then I think about it, and I start feeling bad for the guy, cause hey-- I got a conscience. So I call him back to the cab and tell him to hop in. And he gets in the car all excited, all animated, and he's talking about all these things. But he's got his cap pulled down way over his eyes, so I can't see who it is. But pretty soon I start to recognize his voice. And when we get to a light, I turn to him, and I look him in the eye, and I scream: "WIIIIIIILLLSSSSSOOOOOOON!!!" And that really got him. He started laughing hard. He sees that I've got this Ferrari hat on, and a Ferrari shirt too, so he starts calling me 'Mr. Ferrari.' The whole ride, he keeps calling me 'Mr. Ferrari.' So after we get to his destination, we snap a quick photo, and he goes on his way. And I think that's it. But that's not it, cause get this. Over the next few weeks, I just happen to randomly pick up people that know him. People who have acted with him before, people who work with him. And every time, I tell them: 'Tell Mr. Hanks that Mr. Ferrari says 'hello.'" Every time I say that. Then one day I'm driving, and I get a text from one of the people that I'd driven, and it says: 'Mr. Hanks wants to invite you to see his Broadway show.' So I bring my lady to the show, and we get to go backstage and everything, and after the show, we're waiting for him in his dressing room, and he walks in and screams: 'Mr. Ferrari!' Can you believe that story? And you wanna know the craziest thing? The name of his show was 'Lucky Guy.' How crazy is that? Cause that was me. A lucky guy!"

My Favorite Halloween Song Is...

Okay. While I know there are thousands of great tunes, these five songs have stood out, and have passed the test of time. This Friday, on +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS we're celebrating the night in a huge way with a party night! (Halloween only falls on a Friday once every 7 years!). So in honor of this party -- what is your favourite Halloween song from this list?

Feel free to add all your other favorites in the comments and I may play them during the show!

Choices

1. “This Is Halloween” - Danny Elfman

Venerable composer Danny Elfman got a big assist from the citizens of Halloween Town for this Nightmare Before Christmas favorite, which was famously covered by Marilyn Manson in 2006.

2. "Werewolves of London" Warren Zevon

A perfect Halloween entry from the (late, great) Warren Zevon, who also famously sang "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead," is this howling Me Generation rocker that rose to No. 21 on the Hot 100 in 1978.

Werewolves Of London

3. "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker, Jr.

When October rolls around, the clear answer to the lyrical question, "Who ya gonna call?," is Ray Parker Jr.'s "Ghostbusters," which topped the Hot 100 in 1984.

Ray Parker, Jr. - Ghostbusters

4. "Monster Mash" - Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers

Though it's been decades since this kitschy, creepy faux-Frankenstein party tune scared up a No. 1 slot on the Hot 100 in 1962, Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers' "Monster Mash" has been on Halloween party playlists ever since. 

Monster Mash

5. "Thriller" by Michael Jackson

"Thriller," which hit No. 4 on the Hot 100 in 1984, is the most-downloaded Halloween-themed hit of all-time, with digital sales to-date of 3.4 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan. (It's also Jackson's best-selling download, ahead of runner-up "Billie Jean," which has sold 2.7 million).

1938 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300B Mille Miglia Spyder

Every time I see a classic like this, I always ask myself: when did things go so terribly wrong with design? So many years of ugly design and some of the monstrosities that we've seen over the years and in the recent past boggles the mind.

Then you see a car like this again and it's as if the day is all unicorns and roses, and endless merry-go-rounds. What a beauty this car is...
