They can be from ANY genre or style, any time period. Whatever makes you happy. And shouldn't we have some happiness so we can stick it to those grumpy Mayans?!I'll try to rotate people in all night long, we'll watch videos, have some drinks, share some laughs, and many of us will meet together for the first time. YOU, all of you, have made FNS what it is, and I wanted to share my last night with you! 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. King  +Matt Tuomala +Ryan Van Sickle +Ross Fergus +Branden Haize and +Yonatan Zunger if any of them are around!

Jessica Northey1,713,252Join +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 02:00:0046

Daniel Mihai Popescu66,628This circle is called Amalgam :)It is a mixture of new and very old friends. Of course, the Invincible is always present :)I've been a little bit disappointed for losing some guys I've even grown so fond of lately, so fond that they were in my notification circle, something very rare. They left me without a word, but that's not a problem, because everything goes on :)You are not required to do a single thing, I'll mention you in comments, I hope you don't mind :) I do this because the notifications don't work with my account, it's still an enigma, so I can't say that if you receive a notification from me, you're a member in this circle. It's sure you're a member if I mention you. That's one thing.Another thing is that you, the members, don't have to share the circle. I can't pretend from you, what I don't do with your circles.

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 18:08:10469383955

A Steampunk Christmas

I've wanted to do this one year, but I haven't pulled it off yet. I think this is a brilliant take on the holidays, and I think I'm ready to give it a go! Now, I  need to convince Blaine and make this happen!

Another Day at Work

Margaret Bourke-White, photographer - at work. Can you say "vertigo or acrophobia?" Still, pretty awesome, and I'm very curious about the photographer photographing the photographer. Arrgh, photography! 

Margaret Bourke-White logged a staggering number of firsts. As a pioneering photojournalist, she was among the first staff photographers hired at LIFE and she took its first cover photo.

Best or Strangest Holiday Gifts Ever Received?

I've had posts talking about this in years past. I mentioned that one year, when I was living in Prague, I received a Christmas gift from my dad. It was an ant farm. Let that soak in for a minute. I'm in Central Europe, in a formerly Communist country, and pa saw fit to send me an ant farm. That's my strange one. He thought it was funny.

As a five year old with more energy than a nuclear power plant, my parents thought a drum set might be a nice idea. The fools! I love them, but never ..., and I mean never give an ADD kid drums. We will play at all hours and whenever the wind shifts. ha!

Far Side Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house...

There is something so absolutely subversive about Gary Larson. So many years ago, I still remember the first time I cracked up reading one of his comics. It was love at first sight, and has remained so to this day. He is, in a word, a G+nius!

Gary Larson is an American cartoonist. He is the creator of The Far Side, a single-panel cartoon series that was syndicated internationally to over 1,900 newspapers for fifteen years. The series ended with Larson's retirement on January 1, 1995. His twenty-three books of collected cartoons have combined sales of more than forty-five million copies.

The Americana Inspired Illustrations of UK Artist Matt Taylor

Sometimes when I'm surfing the Internets, one page leads me to another, and as I have the heart of a curator and seeker - I'm always keeping my eyes open for cool artists and illustrators. I found Matt Taylor tonight purely by serendipity. One site led me to his site. His work instantly caught my eye with his mastery of movement, and with his use of contrasts, negative space, and interesting layers and shadows. Fascinating stuff.

Matt Taylor is an illustrator and comic artist based in the Sussex countryside who spends his days crafting expansive, Americana inspired illustrations with a nod to classic comic book art of the fifties and sixties.

Cenote Diving - Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico

The Yucatán Peninsula in southeastern Mexico, separates the Caribbean Sea from the Gulf of Mexico, with the northern coastline on the Yucatán Channel. The peninsula lies east of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, a northwestern geographic partition separating the region of Central America from the rest of North America. The peninsula comprises the Mexican states of Yucatán, Campeche, and Quintana Roo; the northern part of the nation of Belize; and Guatemala's northern El Petén Department.

Due to the extreme karst nature of the whole peninsula, the northern half is devoid of rivers. Where lakes and swamps are present, the water is marshy and not palatable for drinking water. Due to its coastal situation, the whole of the peninsula is underlain by an extensive contiguous density stratified coastal aquifer, where a fresh water lens formedfrom... more »

Due to its coastal situation, the whole of the peninsula is underlain by an extensive contiguous density stratified coastal aquifer, where a fresh water lens formed from meteoric water floats on top of intruding saline water from the coastal margins. The thousands of sinkholes known as cenotes throughout the region provide access to the groundwater system. The cenotes have long been relied on by ancient and contemporary Maya people.

My Alone Music & Walking the Cobblestone Streets of Prague

+Roger R.H. King had a phenomenal post not that long ago that asked: What's your alone music?

https://plus.google.com/+Fridaynightsessions/posts/CLKLZb1dsCd

He said -- "My "alone music" is Stevie Ray Vaughan... toss in some Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, or Earth, Wind, and Fire... follow up with some Count Basie and/or some groovin' Blues... sometimes some Mozart, Beethoven, or Rimsky-Korsakov... if I'm in a loud mood, Boston.

For myself, every week for the last three+ years, in the hours before my Friday night show on +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS, I always play some old favorites, to get myself in the perfect frame of mind.

For myself, every week for the last three+ years, in the hours before my Friday night show on +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS, I always play some old favorites, to get myself in the perfect frame of mind. I turn the lights off in the room, except for one small desk lamp; I look out my windows at the lonely lands surrounding our farm, and I put myself back into my days of living in Prague.

So many nights I spent wandering the haunting cobblestone streets, listening to music waft over my ears as I walked in Old Town and throughout the city center.. Jazz sounds, thumping rock and techno pop; blues and punk rock. You name it, I heard it in Prague.

So once I turn those lights off, I dive into YouTube and play songs by bands and composers that bring me great joy. I play some of Sting's songs from Dream of the Blue Turtles. Songs like "We Work the Black Seam" and songs from ...Nothing Like The Sun like "They Dance Alone." I'll play music from bands like Tears For Fears and so many songs from the 80s, that get me moving and inspired. Man, I love it all. But I have a soft spot for U2 (always) and Peter Gabriel, and of course, R.E.M. and Talking Heads. 

I'll throw in cool tracks from Sinatra and some of the Motown sweet sounds, as well as anything electro-swing. Playing Gershwin gets my mind happy and thinking; Bach reminds me of being a kid when my dad played classical music all the time, along with anything Mozart. Throw in some twangy guitar music, Marillion, music by any of the guitar gods, any heartfelt ballad, -- and I'm at the point of almost sobbing before shows. I'm that guy. Music moves me to tears. Maybe great music should do that to us all. I can't listen to "Cats In the Cradle" anymore without being incredibly moved.

I wear my heart on my sleeve and my new found love of music knows no bounds now - I'm definitely a music addict as we enter into 2015. So, I usually end with "Take 5" by Dave Brubeck - that always gets me on my feet and ready for my shows, and my last song of the night before I go live is quite often that or "Philadelphia" by Neil Young. He reminds me time and again what love means, and how precious life is.

What is your alone music?

Neil Young - "Philadelphia"

Dave Brubeck - "Take 5"

George Gershwin - "Rhapsody in Blue"

Really pricey, but incredibly awesome, at least to the writers of the world!

Phenomenally successful, Montegrappa’s Batman pen collection has inspired a range of writing instruments sure to delight any comic book fan with a love for objects related to favourite characters. 

Called “DC Comics Heroes & Villains” - the new series commences with four pens for four characters in each category. All will be offered as fountain, rollerball and ballpoint pens. Chosen for the first quartet of heroes are Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

The nemeses of Batman comprise the first four villains: The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler. Every pen boasts an evocative design, in each hero’s or villain’s signature colour scheme.

Superman
Superman is represented in red-and-blue, with the iconic ‘S’-Shield logo on the top of the cap, and the pocket clip showing him in flight.

Batman
Batman, of course, is all in black, with the ‘Bat’-Symbol on the cap’s top, and a pocket clip with lowrelief full-height figure.

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman’s red-and-blue pen features all-American white stars, the winged ‘W’ logo on the cap and a full-height image on the pocket clip.

Green Lantern
Green Lantern’s emerald-green pen is accented with black fittings, his logo on the cap and an action pose on the pocket clip.

Joker
For the villains, each has his or her special features represented as well, with full height figures engraved on the pocket clips: for The Joker, the combination of purple cap and green barrel convey his lurid attire, with his grinning face adorning the cap. 

Catwoman
Catwoman is honoured with a dark purple pen with her ‘cat’s eyes’ logo topping the cap, her pose as feline as one would imagine. 

Penguin
The Penguin, naturally, commands a black pen with the very pinstripes that adorn his trousers, the villain posed on the clip with umbrella held aloft, and the umbrella logo gracing the cap’s top. 

Riddler
The Riddler’s all-green pen boasts a question mark on the cap’s top and the same inquisitive punctuation all over the barrel and cap. 


The Montegrappa DC Comics Heroes & Villains pen collection is produced under license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment. All of the DC Comics Heroes & Villains pens are packaged in colourful boxes, and will be offered individual with dedicated display trays.

Thank You, All

I got three really nice +Secret Santa gifts this year. A while back, I got an awesome Amazon gift card from +Rae O. (it was amazing!) and I got a PInterest book (for work) from +Dawn Gard and "New York Through the Lens" by +Vivienne Gucwa from +Bill Thruman. Thank you, guys!

Of course, as I met Vivienne in NYC at the #hirl2  event and loved her instantly, I will have to have this signed at some point!

The Rocket F-88: A Legend That Never Was

"Harley Earl, the legendary automotive stylist, designed the F-88 under the belief that it would have outsold the Corvette and forever changed automotive history. Unfortunately Chevrolet, which produced more GM products than any of its other divisions, convinced the GM board of directors to cut the Oldsmobile project.

The F-88 never went into production due to that sabotage combined with lukewarm Corvette sales. The 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 was strictly ever a dream car."

Possibly the world's rarest automobile - only one car exists out of only two produced as a Motorama “Dream Car."

I wasn't sure if I had shared this with you all a while back, but this is +Blaine Hall and I at our show in Orlando. You can see stacks of what we proudly manufacture at our little plant here in Ohio!

1. Have our product showcased on one or two national television shows, like +TODAY or +Good Morning America and +CBS This Morning. These are perfect for pool owners and they make colorful, great gifts! 

2. Get these in the hands of great pool and spa companies, where they can give these as gifts to their customers and clients. Companies like +Van Kirk & Sons Pools & Spas!

3. Become an industry-leading part of the Made in America movement. As these nets are 100% Made in the USA, we want to be a poster child for our industry.

4. Increase our awareness. To the industry, and on sites like Amazon. Reviews there are definitely going to help us a great deal.

5. Keep refining our website at poolnetr.com so people enjoy visiting there and have a reason to drop by. 

6. Figure out a way to have a good time with our page, +Pool Netr™ and see how we can engage better with our audience.

7. Make a splash with our worldwide audience. Interestingly, our first big sale was outside the country, to Columbia! We know these will do well overseas - it's up to me to figure out how to strengthen those connections.

8. Connect with the Big Box stores and get our products on the shelves at your local Wal-Mart or Lowe's or Target. This is a huge goal, and though complicated with costs and pricing, it would yield huge benefits for us.

Well,  that's just a little insight into what I spend all hours of the day thinking about. We have such unique and cool product lines - I simply have to be better and communicating all of this to YOU!

SANTA NEEDS HELP!

It's crazy, but I'm still seeing a TON of messages to people asking them to FIX THEIR ADDRESSES! Look, it's simple: nothing will be arriving for you or your kids or family if you don't have a shipping address down. +Sean Guenther and all the elves have been tagging people over and over. I believe there are still people not getting the message. LISTEN UP, PLEASE!

Pass this along to your circles and let's get this done!

This is a PERFECT, silly (but true) step by step process for you to follow. The shots are optional. grin

ATARI: Don't Watch TV Tonight, Play It!

Gotta love the ol' vintage ads. Ah, the days of Atari. Kids today have so much already there for them. Then, every week and year, whole new worlds were opening up. But, even then, I know I always imagined games would get to where they are today (and beyond). My mind kind of always worked like that, living between the pages of Omni and my imagination...

Hello Atari, old friend!

My Santa Look

I think in about a year or so, i might just be able to play the Big Guy, with the authentic beard and all. The stash is the only thing holding me back. grin Everything else is turning snow white faster than you can say , "Sean Connery."

This is me at work, about an hour ago, holding up what we make for +Pool Netr™. Very , very few people in the world have these still, and I AM going to change that in 2015. It's my mission and my passion and all top-10 spots of my New Year's Resolutions!

PIXAR's 22 Rules of Storytelling

On Twitter, Pixar storyboard artist Emma Coats has compiled nuggets of narrative wisdom she's received working for the animation studio over the years. It's some sage stuff, although there's nothing here about defending yourself from your childhood toys when they inevitably come to life with murder in their hearts. A truly glaring omission.

Hey - if anyone out there in my circles is considering joining ebates (you may have seen their television commercials) use this code and I'll get some sort of rebate (which I'll probably then use for more Secret Santa gifts)!!

You might as well get money back when you shop, right?

My Own Little Secret Santa ... Sort Of

Look, it's no secret that I'm an elf for +Secret Santa. I have been since 2012. I love what we do, and the favorite part for me is helping other people and sending anonymous gifts each year.

I don't want any praise or accolades -- none of the elves do - we just like to do our small part to bring joy to people and maybe a smile or two on kids faces. That's why I do this. I really hope to inspire more people each year to do a little part as well. This year has been rough for so many people I know and love, and I get that this can be a hard season.

Aside from the official program, I'd love to hear from people who might be looking for one special gift to send to someone they love. I want to do this separately (as I've done my Christmas Card giveaway in the past). I have a few things floating around here and... more »

My Own Little Secret Santa ... Sort Of

I really hope to inspire more people each year to do a little part as well. This year has been rough for so many people I know and love, and I get that this can be a hard season.

Aside from the official program, I'd love to hear from people who might be looking for one special gift to send to someone they love. I want to do this separately (as I've done my Christmas Card giveaway in the past). I have a few things floating around here and there -- things that would be perfect for nurseries, like this planter you see here. I have various books and films, and collectibles - a mixed assortment really. I guess I'd like to hear from a handful of you that might not be able to afford anything this year, and who would like to put a smile on the faces of their loved ones.

I'm not promising anything at all here -- just that I'll try and find something in my home for you if I can. I can't do this for dozens of people, but maybe you'll help me and send me a private message for a few people I could help, and let's talk about what I may have that would work for you. I'll take care of the postage and even add a nice card for you. I'm really looking for the hardest cases with this; people who literally will not be able to buy presents this year.

I'll say this many times in the next few weeks - but Merry Christmas!

What I'll need

A name and physical address of someone I can send things to (no PO boxes). A note from you explaining how the gift is from you, and the message you want to tell them. My name won't be on there -- I'll act as the middleman. Thanks, everyone. Let's brighten as many lives as we can this season! xoxoxo Sean

The Wicked Hybrid Guitar from Spalt Instruments

Michale Spalt from Vienna, Austria is the owner of Spalt Instruments. Here are some pictures of what he calls "Hybrid" guitars. Double necks with a sustaniac element in the lower neck ( for i.e. "infinite" sustain or sounds comparable with an Ebow, a small device which is held above the snares) and a piëzo in the upper neck for simulating i.e. an acoustic guitar sound. A picture of a double neck bass.

The Castell

I saw this and it instantly reminded me of how connected we can be sometimes. And how fascinating traditions can be.

The tradition of building castells originated in the Ball dels Valencians in Valls, near the city of Tarragona, first documented in 1712. Over the course of the 18th century, the spread to other towns and cities in the area, including Vilafranca del Penedès and Tarragona, though it wasn't until the last 50 years that the practice of building Castells began to spread to the rest of Catalonia.

While in Catalonia, the Ball dels Valencians began to focus more on the acrobatic nature of building ever-taller human towers, its more religious and allegorical origins remain in a similar tradition, the muixeranga, which is performed in the Valencian city of Algemesí.

Castellers Colla Vella Xiquets de Valls form a human tower called a castell during a biannual competition in Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain.

On November 16, 2010, castells were declared by UNESCO to be amongst the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

The Last Christmas Gift

I'm working on a Christmas short story and this is the beginning. Thought I'd share my journey with you all. Started writing this 45 minutes ago...


Suddenly waking from a horrible dream, Mary was startled when she heard the loud buzzing of her alarm clock. Perspiration covered her face, and she shook herself awake as she reached over and smacked her alarm clock as hard as she could. She sighed, not an ordinary sigh, but a long, deep, from the depths of her heart sigh, and slowly pulled back the thick comforter and covers. The California King bed was so warm and inviting and this upstairs bedroom was so cold. 

She never did get used to cold rooms. They were her strongest memories as a young girl, growing up in the bitterly cold Midwest. Even now, she could feel that chill overtaking all of the warmth left in her body. She slowly... more »

The Last Christmas Gift

I'm working on a Christmas short story and this is the beginning. Thought I'd share my journey with you all. Started writing this 45 minutes ago...


Suddenly waking from a horrible dream, Mary was startled when she heard the loud buzzing of her alarm clock. Perspiration covered her face, and she shook herself awake as she reached over and smacked her alarm clock as hard as she could. She sighed, not an ordinary sigh, but a long, deep, from the depths of her heart sigh, and slowly pulled back the thick comforter and covers. The California King bed was so warm and inviting and this upstairs bedroom was so cold. 

She never did get used to cold rooms. They were her strongest memories as a young girl, growing up in the bitterly cold Midwest. Even now, she could feel that chill overtaking all of the warmth left in her body. She slowly rose, slipping on a pair of warm moccasins that were next to her bed, and she walked towards her bay window. Pulling back the curtains slowly, she let the gracious Southern California sun envelop her whole being. She stretched her arms as far as she could over her head, and whispered a quiet “thank you” to whatever being it was that gave her this special heat. Coldness had been her friend for so long lately; her heart felt colder than ever after her bitter divorce two years earlier, and she had a special coldness for her mother who had never seemed to see the inner glow of who she was. 

For many of the first forty years of her nomadic life, Mary traveled the globe, going from one “great” opportunity to the next. She had truly circled the globe, and she never regretted a single minute of those glorious days of being an expat in one country, a teacher in another, an interpreter in one, and a shopkeeper in another still. Her head was filled with a million memories of fantastic moments: incredible highs and rock-bottom lows. She had lived life. In her own way. On her own terms. For that, she never had a single regret. Those would come in her fifties, and they would be hurled at her like lightning bolts from the Greek Gods themselves. 

For now, on this morning; on this chilly SoCal morning, Mary had a lot of work to do. For this morning was the morning of Christmas Eve, and she was going to do whatever it took to make this the last, best Christmas ever for her cold mother. Who was now in a hospital bed not twenty feet away in the guest bedroom. Her mother, Dorothy, was 98 years old and had been on a fast, downward spiral. For the last two years, Mary became the mother she never had, and she also became the caregiver she always knew she would become. She had known this since she was eight years old.

On another blistering cold day, in 1955, eight-year-old Mary Louise Peterson was quietly standing alone on a busy playground at Charles Mack Elementary School in Davenport, Iowa. She was a shy, timid girl, who usually kept to herself, always seeming to be admiring nature. As she was on this day. On this day, she was staring up at the tallest branches of a tree, in the middle of December; staring at a small bird who seemed injured. She had tears rolling down her cheeks as she stared and stared at this bird. It was obviously injured, and she could hear small cries from this bird, but nobody else on the playground seemed to notice. She did, though, because she often felt just like that little, abandoned bird. 

Her mother, Mrs. William Peterson, was a socialite in the small town (if there was such a thing in Davenport. Her mother claimed there was). Her mother never noticed this nurturing side of her daughter, but that didn’t surprise Mary. She was used to many a cold dinner, spent alone in her room as loud noises and echoing laughs from numerous cocktail parties attacked her walls. Her room was her sanctuary; it was her that she felt most alive, and most loved. Not by her parents, no they rarely noticed her as they were too busy climbing the social ladder. But she did have friends in her little room: she had a few live animals, and a battalion of stuffed animals. They were her friends. This was her castle, and they protected her. When she couldn’t take the adults any more, they were always there to comfort her. She could pet her turtle, Mr. Fuzzywig and she could caress her hamster, Donald, right in the palm of her hand. She had her knights keeping guard over her bed, and even though they weren’t real (or breathing, rather), they were real enough to her. They were her family. Her real family, and they loved her. And they were warm - they warmed her heart. 

Her mother and father never did that, at least not then. To her, they were like a stern housewife and a businessman who rarely saw his daughter as he was always away doing, well, she never really knew what. She only knew that her mother preferred martini’s (dry, always dry she recalled hearing at one party) and her father liked to go into his den and play Mozart records with the door closed. Mary would never say she had an unhappy childhood, but to this day, she remembers more about that day with that little bird that made her cry than she does about almost any day of those years she spent in Iowa. 

Touching the warmth of her window, she is jarred back to this day, and she goes to look at herself in a full mirror over her dresser. Touching small spots of grey in her hair, she picks up a hairbrush and stares directly into the mirror, Pulling back her bangs, and straightening herself up, she sighs once more, as she slowly brushes out her tangled hair. “Twenty times,” her mother used to say, on the rare occasion when she would brush her daughter’s hair. “Twenty times is necessary if you ever want to be a beautiful lady.”

Setting the brush down, she takes one last look. That eight-year-old girl is now a woman of sixty-seven, and she can see all the moments of her life etched into each crevice and crease of her face. She smiles, and then grins. “This might be the last Christmas we have together,” she says to herself, “But it will be the only unforgettable one.” Turning away, she looks back one more time to the warmth coming from the window and a sly grin takes over her face. “Whether she likes it or not,” she says out loud, walking into the bathroom. 

To be continued...

Sesame Street Meets Star Wars

Yes, if there were surreal moments in television, you could always count on the 80s to deliver them. Episode 1364 is the first of two episodes in which C-3PO and R2-D2 from Star Wars visit Sesame Street. The droids returned in Episode 1396. Air date of 1394: January 31, 1980.

Scene 1: Big Bird sees a flying saucer land in the yard behind the courtyard, and two metal men getting out. The adults just think it's his imagination, but are soon shocked when two droids from Star Wars (C-3PO and R2-D2) quickly shuffle (and roll) by.

Scene 2: Big Bird, Maria and Luis meet C-3PO and R2-D2. R2 is on a secret mission to deliver a message to someone on Sesame Street. Maria and Luis get some oil from the Fix-It Shop to help the droids relax after their long journey.

Scene 3: R2-D2 gives clues to David and two kids to guess who his message is for. When they learn it is for Oscar the Grouch, they take the droids to see him. R2-D2 delivers his message to Oscar -- it's a hologram sent from Lothar the Grouch, billions of miles away. Lothar's message: "Oscar the Grouch, get lost!" Oscar replies, "What do you know? There is intelligent life in outer space." (see link for the other 3 scenes...)

Yup, television at its finest most surreal. :-)

My "alone music" is Stevie Ray Vaughan... toss in some Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, or Earth, Wind, and Fire... follow up with some Count Basie and/or some groovin' Blues... sometimes some Mozart, Beethoven, or Rimsky-Korsakov... if I'm in a loud mood, Boston.

What's your "alone music"?

The Nixie Tube Clock

I would LOVE to get one of these. I was reading an article tonight on Hans Zimmer (the great Hollywood composer) and they had pictures of his studio. This clock was there -- and I fell in love with it instantly. Must. Get. One. Hans says it was made out of Russian submarine parts. What?! Now I want it even more. ha!

It speaks to my love of all things retro, and to history, steampunk, the mechanical age, television, technology, all things vintage, and so much more. Hans's studio is so cool -- read the story below.

Stevie Ray Vaughan's 1985 Rig

It's always interesting, as a music fan, to see the equipment professional musicians use. This is Stevie Ray Vaughan's 1985 rig. It's cool. Stevie's rig diagram is based on numerous emails and phone interviews with long-time guitar tech, Cesar Diazand. It reminds you of how much goes into making incredible music.

The chops are always first, along with the passion. Then comes the equipment.

Goodnight, All.

This is the truth, and something we can never deny, since our subconscious will call us out on this. This IS where your heart lies, so stop fighting it. Goodnight, Plussers!

The Winter Deer

For the last four or five years or so, every time I'd drive home after 6PM, I would run into a small herd of deer. Is "herd" the right word? In the wintertime, it gets dark early. We're the only house on our road, and the road is about 1/4 mile or so.

So when I'm zipping home, I always have my brights on, because, invariably, there are eight or twelve deer standing dead center in the long road/driveway. And they don't move, lights or not! Honestly, they stand their ground and simply stare at me and my brights. Until the roar of the engine moves them off.

We have an understanding, I think. I'm not there to shoot them, and they really need to move out of my way. It always ends well in my favor, but I've never stopped asking myself this question each winter: Where the hell do they go when it gets 20 or 30 below... more »

I've always wondered about that...

"Cindy Blackman—Best recognized as the drummer for Lenny Kravitz, Blackman has played for nearly every modern jazz artist around. She has proven time and again that women can more than hold their own in the jazz world, playing with a subtle, sinewy style that shifts from jazz and rock to funk and back." - Kathleen Keyes via Pinterest

Okay. I am deeply curious about where you have traveled to before. In the past, I've had broad posts on this topic, but now I'm pinning things down. On January 1st, I want to re-release this post with an image that shows all the big cities and countries all of us have visited!

I want to have a graphic representation of my circles -- and where all of us collectively have visited on this earth. If you're traveling in the next few months, fine. I'll add those, too.

little tree

by: e.e. cummings (1894-1962)

I had to write this because sometimes we forget the smallest details that help us discover Christmas magic each year. I've sat back and watched so much bitterness and anger this year - online, here, in the news - and I need to keep reminding myself that we only have one life to live. One. We get one shot, and then we're gone. I'm at an age now where I have no room whatsoever for those things any more. 

Every page I've set up here was created out of love for topics and things that interest me: like music, and the arts, and helping others. I love sharing my enthusiasm and love of what I thoroughly enjoy, but I don't have any room in my heart for bitterness and a constant barrage of negativity. None.

I post about things that excite me, and that topics that bring out the best in me. And yes, I really enjoy sharing those with you. I do.

But now and then, I'm knocked down, and that's when I need to dust myself off and post something so beautiful - so profound - as a simple poem like this. We've all been there. I'm sure you have, too. This season isn't only for kids - it's for everyone who keeps love in their hearts all year long. It's for people who truly want to share the warmth of their hearts with friends, and family, and many times, with complete strangers.

All of us, at one time or another, have been this little tree. We have. (whether you want to admit it or not). I started out the year as that little tree. I had no job, I was constantly depressed, and all of my thoughts were so very dark. All of us have been scared, and alone in that forest, and hopefully, all of us have felt the warmth of caring that that little tree felt when it was taken home and felt proud. I found work, I'm in a much happier place now, and this should be a great Christmas season. [Here's hoping he was replanted after the holiday, but different times, right? :-)]


little tree

LITTLE tree
little silent Christmas tree
you are so little
you are more like a flower
who found you in the green forest
and were you very sorry to come away?
see i will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly
i will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and tight
just as your mother would,
only don't be afraid
look the spangles
that sleep all the year in a dark box
dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,
put up your little arms
and i'll give them all to you to hold
every finger shall have its ring
and there won't be a single place dark or unhappy
then when you're quite dressed
you'll stand in the window for everyone to see
and how they'll stare!
oh but you'll be very proud
and my little sister and i will take hands
and looking up at our beautiful tree
we'll dance and sing
"Noel Noel"

"little tree" was originally published in The Dial Vol. LXVIII, No. 1 (Jan. 1920). New York: The Dial Publishing Company, Inc.

FREE RICE

A social game you can play, and for correctly guessing answers from multiple choices - each correct answer donates 10 grains of rice to help end world hunger. It's easy to play - easy to build up a huge quantity of rice - and even easier to help make a difference! Challenge yourself, and play along at freerice.com

In its first ten months of operation, Freerice donated over 42 billion grains of rice. One month after the inception of the viral marketing program, users had earned enough points for one billion grains of rice.

The United Nation's World Food Program stated that this amount could feed 50,000 people for one day, since it takes 400 grams or about 19,200 grains of rice to feed one adult for a day.Using this calculation, enough rice was donated in 2008 to feed over 6,000 people daily for each day of that year.

The Go Fund Me Campaign to Help Others

Each year, those of us who work behind the scenes of Christmas hear some of the most heartbreaking stories. Stories about desperate families, kids who are constantly hungry or won't be getting  a single present at Christmas, stories of loss and suffering I want to help, but as I was unemployed at Christmas last year and still getting back on my feet, I'm asking for your help, too.

As an elf with +Secret Santa we are in the unique position to hear the stories, and to hear where a difference can be made. We also hear many stories not printed or shared. This year, I want to be able to help as many people as I can, and to do that, for the first time, I am asking for YOUR help. Usually, it was the other way around, where I helped with contributions to indie artists and musicians here. But now, the shoe's on the other foot --a... more »

Do what you can -- contribute if you have the means - or simply help me share this campaign. Thank you! And if you know of other campaigns I should be aware of, like the Reddit Secret Santa, please let me know and I'll post about those on my +Helping Others page!

The Christmas Question

IN GENERAL (meaning it doesn't have to be this way every year), what kind of Christmas do you usually have? (if you celebrate the holiday)

1. Traditional -- filled with family, memories, things from the past plus new things from now. It's how we've always done it, and we wouldn't change a thing. We love all the classic trappings of the holiday.

2. Minimalist -- we like clean lines and we keep the decorations and the holiday to a minimum, never going overboard too much. We experiment with minimalist ideas and designs and have a blast!

3. Radical -- we are INSANE for the holiday, and it shows in how completely overboard we go. Yes, we're nuts about the holiday and can't imagine doing it any other way. Nor would we want to. Go, Christmas!

3. Radical -- we are INSANE for the holiday, and it shows in how completely overboard we go. Yes, we're nuts about the holiday and can't imagine doing it any other way. Nor would we want to. Go, Christmas!

4. Regional -- we decorate for the holiday based on where we are at that time. If we're at our cabin, it's a Country Christmas. If we're in Boston, it has an Eastern Seaboard flavor. If we're visiting friends in Europe, we honor their traditions and ways. And if we're at home, we make it fit into where we live.

5. Retro Or Futuristic -- look, we're crazy about the past, about history and antiques and we love to celebrate the holiday in a very retro style. Or -- we love everything abut the future, and we like to make this holiday all about cool things we imagine from the future. There may be be some retro things to give us ideas, but every Christmas we have is always really "out there." Literally!

If your Christmas isn't on this list, leave a comment and let the world know. As for us, it varies. but we usually fit under the RADICAL category, going all out. And we wouldn't want it any other way (most years. ha!)

Venice Dreams

I drifted off earlier for some hours and dreamed of two very specific places. One was some sort of music convention, where I was roaming through vast halls and even when I woke up, the images of individual booths were still engraved in my mind, down to details like record company logos, specific equipment, and artists in the booths.

The second place was Venice. I saw myself walking through the city. I wasn't a tourist, but I was someone who knew the back alleys and canals well. I was ... I'm not sure of the word I'm seeking here. I was, well, a roamer. And it definitely was a dark and stormy night.

I've always have the most vivid dreams and many of them I can recall in detail later when I waken. It's curious. I can't recall the last decade I had a bad dream, so I must generally be at peace when I sleep (or I simply... more »

Popular Mechanics: Build This Backyard Water Rocket

Never has learning Newton's third law of motion (equal and opposite reaction) been so much fun. This easy-to-build, kid-friendly water rocket turns any afternoon into a blast. SAFETY FIRST: Parental supervision strongly advised for build and launch. 

Tools and Materials

· Electric drill with 1/16-, 5/32-, and ¼-inch bits
· One No. 4 size rubber stopper (1 inch long, 1-inch diameter at the fat end)
· One 8-inch length of 3/16-inch (outside diameter) copper tubing
· Bicycle pump with inflation needle
· Heavy card stock
· One 2-liter plastic bottle
· Duct tape
· One drinking straw, minimum ¼-inch diameter
· Four 1-inch-square wood blocks
· One ½-inch plywood board, 12 to 16 inches square
· One ¼-inch threaded steel rod, 18 inches long
· Four ¼-inch nuts
· Two washers, ¼-inch hole, 1-inch diameter 

The Build

Make the Stopper Assembly

1. Drill a 1/16-inch hole through the middle of the stopper. 

2. Widen the hole by drilling the 5/32-inch bit about ½ inch into the top (wider part) of the stopper. 

3. Insert the copper tubing into the 5/32-inch hole. 

4. Push the inflation needle into the hole in the bottom of the stopper so that it feeds into the copper tube. 

Build the Rocket

5. Make fins from card stock; attach to the bottle with duct tape. 

6. Tape the 8-inch drinking straw to the side of the bottle (oriented from top to bottom). 

Build the Launchpad

7. Attach square blocks to the corners of the launch platform (plywood), using quick-setting glue or 1¼-inch wood screws. 

8. Place the rocket in the center of the launch platform and mark the spot directly below the plastic straw. 

9. Drill a ¼-inch hole through the mark; insert the steel rod into the hole, and fix in place with nuts and washers. 

Prepare the Hydro-Pump Rocket for Launch

10. Attach the bicycle pump to the inflation needle. 

11. Fill bottle one-third full with water, below top of copper tube. 

12. Push the stopper assembly firmly into bottle's mouth. 

13. Invert the rocket, and slide the soda straw onto the rod. 

Launch the Rocket

14. Pump air into the rocket. The amount of pressure required to fire the rocket will vary, depending on how clean the seal between the rubber stopper and the rocket is and how firmly the stopper is placed. 

15. After several pumps, the pressure inside the rocket will be great enough to overcome the friction holding the stopper in place. Now comes the cool part, as the stopper releases from the rocket, and the rocket launches high into the air, shooting a trail of water behind it. Zoom!

Wall-Mounted Dino

For that person who's into wall-mounted trophies and other hunted animals, why not give them one thing they can't hunt, unless they're possibly living in Jurassic World:  this. Wall-mounted Dino is bold and will make a statement for anyone. It would look especially great in any Man Cave or She-Cave.
