Jessica Northey1,611,514Join +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 02:00:0048G+

Remembering The Stream...

Look, I'm not being nostalgic or wistful here, but I do want to say that back in the "good 'ol days of G+", the Stream was cool. It MOVED. It acted, well, like an actual stream. Now, it's the antithesis of a stream, I suppose. (I'm not a proponent of gif images, so this is always big for me...)

I don't want this to be a whine or rant, but I DO want to point out that I went away first for an hour, and then for a few hours tonight, and the same damn posts were there when I returned. Exactly the same. That didn't happen in 11 and 12 (or up to that point of the Big Change.). It was exciting and fresh and hey, if I missed something, I missed it. New posts were being served right around the corner...

That stream moved! (as a stream should). This "stream" is more like a backyard... more »

Dream Cars

I still have cars on the brain after spending all week at the Auburn Auto Show. So many classics were there. It was mind-boggling with its variety.

What cars have you always dreamed about owning? Those cool cars that will always be sought after?

For me, I've wanted any of the great 40s Woodys, a 60s VW Camper Van, a VW Thing, a Packard or Duesenberg, a Bugatti anything, and any one of those outrageously cool bright and colorful Fords and Chevys from the 50s. To start. Ha!

Wooden Chicken

Art by Jim Bradshaw. "I fell in love with the Marshall art toy by 64 Colors. My favorite shape to paint on so far." Not sure what else to say about this, er, wooden chicken, but it caught my eye. As in CRAZY CHICKEN. But, then again, aren't they all?

Auburn Indiana Car Show

Since Monday I've been working at the Auctions America Fall Car Show manning a booth for my work. Up at 7, back home after 7, every day. Three more days of this and yes, I am basically devoid of energy at the moment. They expect 100k + visitors over the course of this huge show and it feels like that.

We have a booth outdoors in a great, high-traffic spot and we're making sales. It's just these sorts of week long shows really take it out of you, especially with the rain on some days and the crazy Midwest humidity. Lots going on, a ton of great cars for sale and being auctioned, and it's been quite a trip so far.

Here are a few snapshots with many more to come later...

h/t to +Angie Person for catching my eye with this. I posted about this at +Helping Others and now I'm amplifying that to you all. Thanks for anything you can do to get the message out there. 

Our G+ Community can do amazing things....

This has to be the most humbling thing I've ever had to do. I hate asking for help and having to face the fact that I can't handle everything myself. 

I still have no idea how much we need but truthfully only want to ask for enough to cover some basics until +Lee Walters can return to work. 

So.... here we go....___h/t to +Angie Person for catching my eye with this. I posted about this at +Helping Others and now I'm amplifying that to you all. Thanks for anything you can do to get the message out there.

Dinner Out at the Root Beer Stand ... In My Car!

Remember seeing people back in the day pulling into drive-ins and having trays attached to their windows? It still happens, especially here in the Midwest. I was shocked when I first moved to Ohio when I saw gas stations that you could drive right into and someone would get whatever you wanted out of the refrigerators. So cool! But it's common here apparently.

Tonight. +Blaine Hall and I headed over to Antwerp (pronounced Ant-werp here. ha!) and we drove right up to the old A&W Root Beer stand (now with a new name). It was just like you see in the movies: we hit the call box, placed our order - burgers, fries, and frosty mugs of root beer, and a few minutes later, a nice girl came out with order on a tray and attached the tray to the car window.

The Ultimate MAN CAVE Would Have To Have... (you fill in the blank)

Okay. They're called "Man Caves" but really, women want their caves also. So no sexism here. Some might want different things in them, and some maybe not. But we ALL want a cool place to relax and unwind, and hang out with friends.

So, my Man Cave would have to start with a kick-butt home theater system. It would have to have a pool table, and a poker table, and of course, a bar for socializing. There would have to be vintage #pinball machines and slot machines. And it would have to be roomy. Heck, if I could fit bowling lanes in there, I would! :-)

What would your cave look like and have in it What items would you include that absolutely, positively need to be there?

Hogan's Heroes

Want to watch a great series from the past? Check out Hogan's Heroes on Netflix...

Hogan's Heroes is an American television sitcom set in a German prisoner of war (POW) camp during World War II, that ran for 168 episodes from September 17, 1965, to July 4, 1971, on the CBS network.

Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, coordinating an international crew of Allied prisoners running a Special Operations group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the incompetent commandant of the camp, and John Banner was the inept sergeant-of-the-guard, Hans Schultz.

The setting is a fictional version of Luftwaffe Stalag 13 (Camp 13 in early episodes), a prisoner-of-war camp for captured Allied airmen located north of the town of Hammelburg in the Bad Kissingen woods. It was on the Hammelburg Road (now known as E45), on the way to Hofburgstraße and eventually Düsseldorf. One episode places the camp 106 kilometres (66 mi) from Heidelberg in flying miles; it is 199 km (124 mi) by car. The camp has 103 Allied prisoners of war (POWs) during the first season, but becomes larger by the end of the series.

This show will continually crack you up, and it was always a great time watching it! But oh, that laugh track. Eek!

Theatre of the Absurd and Getting Google To Verify Us (If That's What We Want)

It's another dark and stormy night in Ohio, and I'm sitting here, THREE YEARS+ after being in Beta, and I am still not verified on G+. I thought about Robin Williams' daughter and her Twitter troll attacks; I think about all the anonymous crap here, with out-of-control trolls, a plethora of fake accounts, and absolute hatred being kicked around every day here. It bugs me.

I don't have a problem with YOU wanting to be anonymous, but please allow ME the option of getting verified so the world knows I am exactly who I say I am. I want to stand by my words and clearly be seen as the man behind what I write. I myself do not want anonymity here!

I already do two-step verification to sign-in. Hell, when I die I'm already set up to have this account continue... more »

I already do two-step verification to sign-in. Hell, when I die I'm already set up to have this account continue etc. Sweet Jesus, can someone on the G+ team tell me why this is so hard ? No, I've never been chosen for the SUL, so no verification there.

But I'm a Google Advocate (35 members is it?) Surely that Official group should be able (and want to) verify I am who I say I am? Nope. I'm a Google Partner. 15k members worldwide. Surely THEY would want to know exactly who's in their group, right? As they're issuing certifications and involving businesses and agencies? Nope.

I have my website that I own tied to my +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS page, and only got that through the invite-only Google Domains thingy. Surely they want to know I'm me, right? Nope.

Look, I know this is a little thing to many people, but my words are mine, and will stay with me until the end of my days, and all I want is to share the fact that you know the real Sean Cowen is speaking when posts are labeled as from +Sean Cowen.

Again, why is this so hard, +Dave Besbris? Why are many of us early adopters still writing posts like this - THREE YEARS after the fact?

AUBURN, INDIANA

All next week, I'll be manning a booth for work and taking in the sights and sounds of this 44-year old tradition: the Auburn Fall Collector's Car Weekend. There are usually around 1,200 cars in the auction, ranging from classics and hot rods, to exotics, muscle cars and more. I'm told over 100,000 people (including many a celebrity) will be in attendance, so I'm pretty sure I'll be fairly catatonic all week long!

The event will be on the national stage with coverage by NBCSn (NBC Sports Network)  broadcasting live from the Auburn Auction Park. I think you may see some weekend coverage on NBC as well.

The event will be on the national stage with coverage by NBCSn (NBC Sports Network)  broadcasting live from the Auburn Auction Park. I think you may see some weekend coverage on NBC as well.

Highlights of the Show

Perfectly matched for the Auburn Cord Duesenberg (ACD) Festival weekend, this year's Auburn Fall sale is headlined by a complete ACD lineup. The stunning trio includes a genuine 1935 Auburn 851 Supercharged Speedster, offered after 30+ years of single family ownership and being tucked away from public view since the mid-1980s; a rare supercharged 1937 Cord 812 Sportsman; and an authentic 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Dual - Cowl Phaeton by LaGrande, J-523, fitted with a factory SJ engine. One of only 36 SJ Duesenbergs built, this beauty is offered complete with its original chassis, body and bell housing.

The full-color catalog is a hefty almost 300-pages, and there's also a sale of classic automotive parts from the MacPhail Collection taking place as well. This should be an incredible event, and I'll do my best to get some photos here and there, if I can escape my booth for a while.

Finally, I saw that they added one of the cool cars from Boardwalk Empire  to the sale. That should be great to see in person!

16.5 Minutes. 28,000 Miles, 16 Operators - World's First Around-The-World Telegram Sent On This Day in 1911

The Times decided to send its 1911 telegram in order to determine how fast a commercial message could be sent around the world by telegraph cable. The message, reading simply "This message sent around the world," left the dispatch room on the 17th floor of the Times building in New York at 7 p.m. on August 20. After it traveled more than 28,000 miles, being relayed by 16 different operators, through San Francisco, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Saigon, Singapore, Bombay, Malta, Lisbon and the Azores--among other locations--the reply was received by the same operator 16.5 minutes later.

It was the fastest time achieved by a commercial cablegram since the opening of the Pacific cable in 1900 by the Commercial Cable Company.

Star Wars Singin' In The Rain

It rained cats and dogs here in Ohio today, really a massive but short downpour. So naturally I thought of Star Wars and this. Perfect for
#starwarstuesday . And for those times when a Stormtrooper just has to release that pent up energy, or needs a little sunshine...

Deleting Posts: Why We Do It (And If Some of Us Do It)

Question: Have you deleted posts before you published them here on G+?

I have probably deleted hundreds of posts at this point - right before I posted them. Full on descriptions, full of pictures, and insights. Why?

I don't know - I have some sort of inner filter that tells me the post isn't up to my usual standards, or isn't worthy, or it will open a can of worms. Or it's something I myself don't want to read twenty years down the road. Take your pick.

Does that happen with you? Is there a pile of posts that you deleted and thought later - maybe I should have just posted them?

Functional Steampunk Keyboard Arm Guard

If you were wondering whether or not post-apocalyptic society will be integrating text messaging with self-defense, the answer is yes. Thomas Willeford's #steampunk  keyboard-arm guard combo sports futuristic Victorian aesthetics and craftsmanship.

Functional steampunk keyboard arm guard. The ability to control my gadgets in a stylish, yet possibly impractical manner? Count me in!

Antiqued buttons power a 3-in-1 multimedia wireless keyboard (typepad, touch pad, laser pointer) that can control devices up to 100 feet away. Also included are a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and mini 2.4 GHz USB wireless receiver, the latter of which stores inside the keyboard when not in use. I'm not sure how much this contraption weighs altogether, but my guess is somewhere around 97 pounds.

A wheelchair bound boy watches his as his mother falls in love with the high school volunteer at the pool where the son does aquatic therapy.

I always seem to find interesting films on Vimeo. This is one. I didn't even realize the "swimming pool" connection' to what I do at work until I was half way into this. I know only 3 people on the planet will comment on this, but my mission in life is to not mind when you don't.

There's something about short films in general that I find appealing; i think it's the way they can tell a story in 7 minutes that would take other filmmakers 2 hours.  Hopefully, I've introduced you to quite a few great stories over the years here...

Truth, As Only Gandhi Can Explain It

In my youth, I was always so hot-headed and quick to respond. But the more time you spend on this planet, the more you see your attitudes changing (at least, that's been my experience).

I had ZERO patience as a young adult. None. I was a rabid, juiced-up, ADHD kid, and I wanted to conquer the world. But after spending seven years living abroad in the former Czechoslovakia, and after having visited many countries (and getting to my ripe old age), my perspective and thoughts have changed. I have more patience today than I could have ever imagined I would have. Ever.

After teaching numerous Dale Carnegie classes, and after a deeper reflection and maturity that comes with spending a huge chunk of time on this planet, I now know that I am NOTHING like the boy I once was. My reactions, now, are everything. I get it now.... more »

Mad King Ludwig, Are We Related?

I remember having this fantastic Family History class in college, and our main paper was to trace our family history as far back as we could go on one side of our family. I traced my father's side, the Cowen's, back to about 1640. A clear shot, no breaks. It was a fun project, and after interviewing my grandmother, I learned so much. Wow, was she ever a salty lady. :-)

I wish I had done my mother's side, too. I have slight memories of my great-grandmother. She only spoke German, and always called me Little John. My mother's father, Gerald Pasker, was German, and he was a born inventor. He built up a hydraulics business from nothing into something great and he held many patents (my fondest memories of childhood revolve around forklift races in his factories). Sadly, he died in a helicopter crash only three months before I... more »

Sadly, he died in a helicopter crash only three months before I was born. To this day, I would give anything to be with him if only for a day...

I once talked to some German friends (when I lived in Prague) and amazingly (and I don't know if this is true), they said that the family name, Pasker, was likely based in this part of Bavaria. They were very specific.

Honestly, I would LOVE to return to this part of the world and see how far back I could go into our past. Maybe we have a tie to Ludwig II of Bavaria (Mad King Ludwig). Who knows? ha! But I'm on a mission to one day trace our family history on my Mom's side as far back as I can go...

About the Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany.

Nice Car, But the Movie...?

Loved this car (and the Nautilus) but something went horribly wrong with this flick. I think expectations were much too high, imho. I don't know, I really was expecting a rollicking good time with Connery & Co. Maybe another take on this will sooth our wounds. Your thoughts?

Hicksville, Ohio. Yes, It's Really Where I Live!

Hicksville is located on Ohio's western border, approximately twenty miles northeast of Fort Wayne, IN. Hicksville township was founded in 1839 on land owned by the the Hicks Land Company under Henry W. Hicks of New York City.

Bicentennial Man

As a major film buff, this was hard news to hear, losing a comic G+nius like #robinwilliams . I've always been a fan and never so much as I was with his role of Andrew in Bicentennial Man. The way we watched his character progress through time was nothing short of amazing in my mind. He made us have complete empathy for a robot - a robot who wanted nothing more than to be human.

One robot's 200 year journey to become an ordinary man.

Not many people embraced this film, but I did, and I'll always remember how much talent Robin Williams possessed. His was one of a kind; in fact, he was exactly like Andrew: a rare and wonderful gift to the world. You'll be damn missed, Robin...

The Difference Engine by William Gibson & Bruce Sterling (Steampunk)

Here's a great 1990 book to add to your stacks if you're looking for a great read as we edge closer to the fall.

The Difference Engine is an alternate history novel by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. It is widely regarded as a book that helped establish the genre conventions of steampunk.

It posits a Victorian Britain in which great technological and social change has occurred after entrepreneurial inventor Charles Babbage succeeded in his ambition to build a mechanical computer (actually his analytical engine rather than the difference engine).

The novel was nominated for the British Science Fiction Award in 1990, the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1991, and both the John W. Campbell Memorial Award and the Prix Aurora Award in 1992.

The Difference Engine by William Gibson & Bruce Sterling (Steampunk)

Here's a great 1990 book to add to your stacks if you're looking for a great read as we edge closer to the fall.

The Difference Engine is an alternate history novel by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. It is widely regarded as a book that helped establish the genre conventions of steampunk.

It posits a Victorian Britain in which great technological and social change has occurred after entrepreneurial inventor Charles Babbage succeeded in his ambition to build a mechanical computer (actually his analytical engine rather than the difference engine).

The novel was nominated for the British Science Fiction Award in 1990, the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1991, and both the John W. Campbell Memorial Award and the Prix Aurora Award in 1992.

Setting

The novel is chiefly set in 1855. The historical background diverges from our timeline around 1824, when Charles Babbage succeeded in creating his Difference Engine and went on to develop the Analytical Engine. He became politically powerful and at the 1830 general election opposed the Tory Government of the Duke of Wellington. Wellington staged a coup d'etat in 1830 in an attempt to overturn his defeat and prevent the acceleration of technological change and social upheaval, but was assassinated in 1831.

So the Industrial Radical Party, led by a Lord Byron who had not died in the Greek War of Independence, came to power. The Tory Party and hereditary peerage were eclipsed. British trade unions assisted the ascendancy of the Industrial Radical Party (much as they aided the Labour Party of Great Britain in the twentieth century in our own world). As a result, Luddite anti-technological working class revolutionaries were ruthlessly suppressed.

By 1855 the Babbage computers have become mass-produced and ubiquitous, and their use emulates the innovations which actually occurred during our information technology and Internet revolutions. Other steam-powered technologies have also developed, so, for example, Gurney steam carriages are an increasingly common sight. The novel explores the social consequences of an information technology revolution in the nineteenth century, such as the emergence of "clackers" (a reference to hackers), technologically proficient people, such as Théophile Gautier, who are skilled at programming the Engines through the use of punch-cards.

In the novel, the British Empire is more powerful than in reality, thanks to the development and use of extremely advanced steam-driven technology in industry.

The Plot

The action of the story follows Sybil Gerard, a political courtesan and daughter of an executed Luddite leader (she is borrowed from Disraeli's novel Sybil); Edward "Leviathan" Mallory, a paleontologist and explorer; and Laurence Oliphant, a historical figure with a real career, as portrayed in the book, as a travel writer whose work was a cover for espionage activities "undertaken in the service of Her Majesty".

Linking all their stories is the trail of a mysterious set of reportedly very powerful computer punch cards and the individuals fighting to obtain them; as is the case with special objects in several novels by Gibson, the punch cards are to some extent a MacGuffin...

VHS Tape. What's That?

Twenty years from now, heck, maybe even now, kids will  have absolutely NO IDEA what a VHS cassette tape is. Or the terms VCR, or video cassette etc. It simply won't be something they will have learned.

That's kind of depressing. Generations before me used 78's and 8-Tracks and I at least knew what they were. I don't think future gens will be taught this. History is the last thing any American student wants to learn, is taught properly, or grasps. It's simply not in our culture. And that's a monumental failure of our educational system, imho. Because we are then likely to repeat that history...

What Was Your Favorite ATARI Game?

Asteroids and Space Invaders were fun, but I was always best at Bowling for some reason. :-)

Remembering The Stream...

Look, I'm not being nostalgic or wistful here, but I do want to say that back in the "good 'ol days of G+", the Stream was cool. It MOVED. It acted, well, like an actual stream. Now, it's the antithesis of a stream, I suppose. (I'm not a proponent of gif images, so this is always big for me...)

I don't want this to be a whine or rant, but I DO want to point out that I went away first for an hour, and then for a few hours tonight, and the same damn posts were there when I returned. Exactly the same. That didn't happen in 11 and 12 (or up to that point of the Big Change.). It was exciting and fresh and hey, if I missed something, I missed it. New posts were being served right around the corner...

That stream moved! (as a stream should). This "stream" is more like a backyard pond. A pond filled with dead frogs and floating corpses and pungent with the smell of "what could have been."

Ok. Maybe this is a slight rant, but goddamn, how often do I need to see these same posts? Time for real change (or reverting back to what was, +Dave Besbris). Seriously, many of us "Old Timers" will tell you the same thing, I would think. Surely +Yonatan Zunger knows a bit of what I'm saying...?

Will anyone second me on this?

The Most Memorable One-Liners in Movies, Ever.

I vividly remember seeing this film at the Tower Theatre in Sacramento. It was creepy and it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Great films do that. I never forgot this line.

But you don't need a great film to have memorable one-liners - just a good script. Quick - top of your head - tell us the best one-liners you remember! We'll try to name the film. Come back and Add a YouTube vid of the line for effect when it's guessed...

The Fantastical (and Sometimes Bizarre) Conceptual Photography of Logan Zillmer

“Photography has always been second nature to me, both because I’ve done it since I was 15 and because it is just how my mind works.” says Zillmer. He skillfully fuses different elements and objects, adding layers of textures, colors, and filters using the magic of digital editing to produce photographs that offer viewers a peek into his fantastical, sometimes bizarre inner thoughts.

“I find it difficult to tell people about myself in short compact sentences, but here is my best shot. I am a conceptual photographer from the Midwest. I have a film degree, I have ADHD and I have been interested in photography and film since I was in high school. I love cinema, literature, American landscape painters from the 19th century, good whiskey, baseball, and being creatively free. I got startedwith ph... more »

I got started with photography when I took a photography class in high school.”

“… I decided not to apply any pre-conceived notions about what kind of photography I thought I should be making, and instead, let my imagination and absurd amounts of energy take over. It became quickly apparent that conceptual photography is where my voice speaks loudly.”

My First Car or Truck

Okay, as a guy, all I did in my early teens was collect countless car magazines and dream about my first car or truck. I had always wanted a truck, or maybe a Jeep. Well, I had a thing for the VW The Thing, but I knew that would never happen. So I always kinda dreamed about an old, beatup, pickup truck.

That didn't happen. My first car was a really ugly, brown (eek!) Ford Maverick. 78 I think. So damned ugly, but it was mine, and I paid cash for it, money saved from so many jobs. Paid in full!

What was your FIRST car or truck (and what was your DREAM first car or truck?)

From Intergalactic Droid Loungers to Hovering Furniture

Despite being an earthling, having any of these Star Wars furniture pieces in your house would make you feel like you've been transported to another galaxy. As far away as the world of Star Wars may be, having droids, ships and AT-AT Imperial Walkers land in your living room as coffee tables or chairs will definitely make the universe seem a whole lot closer. 

Part of what makes the Star Wars universe so awesome is its sheer immensity and this definitely comes through with some of the large scale furniture pieces. A few of these furniture designs are actually DIY projects that were put together by fans and although Star Wars home decor is on the geeky side (Lies! - ed.), it definitely warrants a thumbs up from some diehard fans of the franchise.

Our Website Was Born Tonight

Friday Night Sessions - Where Every Night Is Friday Night.

Well, after almost three years, I broke down and finally created a website for +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS over the last few hours. I have added some recent favorite videos, links to classic albums and tracks, a way to communicate directly with us - and a full month's worth of themes for upcoming shows.

It's always a "work in progress" with websites, and I'm not ready for the major monthly outlay to get rid of the cheesy Wix branding yet, so it is what it is. I plan on adding many new features and most especially a way for fans to interact on the site ... maybe a forum or a big space where we can all hang out in and "talk shop."

Anyway, I hope you like the start and I'm happy to listen to all of your suggestions. It's only going to... more »

1960 Volkswagen 'Dropside' Single Cab Pickup Truck

Oh, yes. Definitely yes. Want.

Unquestionably among the most innovative designs of the day, the Volkswagen 'Dropside' Pickup trucks stretched the definition of full service utility vehicles. Production of the Volkswagen 'Dropside' truck was started in 1954, borrowing its chassis from the Microbus and employing the front section and split window as the major design features.

Perhaps one of the most innovative attributes was the dropside panels of the single cab's 5ft x 9ft truck bed. By dropping the hinged sides and tailgate, the entire floor of the bed could be exposed providing a great deal of practical storage space which was easily accessible from either side. While over one million Volkswagen trucks, or transporters, were manufactured these single cab examples have become... more »

By dropping the hinged sides and tailgate, the entire floor of the bed could be exposed providing a great deal of practical storage space which was easily accessible from either side. While over one million Volkswagen trucks, or transporters, were manufactured these single cab examples have become increasingly rare as only a limited number appear to remain today in this distinctive configuration.

This Volkswagen 'Dropside' Pickup truck possesses a very well-planned design; unlike today's market, which tends to indicate that as the truck grows larger, the actual bed and usable space must grow smaller, the Volkswagen Pickup stayed small and had a bed as big as a contemporary long bed Ford or Chevy pickup.

Yet, in the late 1960s with its drop down side panels, the pickup could be instantly expanded to fit a mattress, ten hippies and a bongo - or possibly a Formula One race car with it's nose removed!

Glass R2D2

This might be the most beautiful and fragile version of R2-D2 ever created. It’s made of countless little pieces of glass that look like they’ve been handmade and then put together while they’re still hot enough to stick. Look closely and you’ll see it’s not just the overall shape of the little droid, but even the patterns of metal on his body that have been carefully duplicated.

This is from a while back, but still fascinating. Yeah, it wouldn't last a second on an X-Wing, but so what. It's filled with #awesomesauce .

Self Portrait Photography by Dutch artist Joeri Bosma

This was the first image I choose for +PORTFOLIO. I had the idea of having a page for and about visual artists and their work. It's still a long-term "Work in Progress," time permitting. But it was created out of my love for indie art and artists here on G+.

This image stayed in my head for some time. I could relate - to that feeling of sometimes "blending in." Of being a bit invisible. Of being part of a great whole, and yet not a part of that world. It captured my imagination and still does to this day...

The Old Magnavox VCR

I don't remember our first VCR (though I know it wasn't a Betamax). Dad predicted right about those. This exact model here is one I remember us having, maybe around the late 70s, early 80s? I think my mom to this day still has tapes we made around that time.

My memory of this era was more about HBO. I know we subscribed early on and I have flashes of memories of trying to stay up late and catch late night shows on the network. Ahem. I also still can see the opening sequence flying through buildings before the "Feature Presentation."

Here's one: HBO 1983 Intro (HBO)

Kids today will never know what we went through to tape shows and a cassette will be foreign to them. But to us, it was a new world then...

It's The Small Things...

The smallest things, the things you might think are the least inconsequential, can make a world of difference for somebody who needs help.

The cost for this? Nothing. The benefit? The crowd enjoys music, the man without a home gets some needed income, and everyone's happy.

It reminded me of buskers in my years overseas. Nice.

What's Your Bucket List?

Man, I probably have 500 things on my list, but I can think of some of them right off the top of my head. These are mine; what are yours?

1. Take flying lessons and pilot my own airplane.
2. Drive across America, coast to coast. Preferably in a badass RV.
3. Spend the night in a haunted place (non believer here).
4. Experience weightlessness (no gravity), preferably in space.
5. Have my script turned into a major motion picture, and get to watch the entire filming on set.

6. Climb the pyramids in Egypt then attend a safari in Africa after.
7. Get a book published my a major publisher and have a New York Times bestseller (and leave all proceeds to my niece and nephew).
8. Go dog sledding - that just looks so damn fun :-)
9. Give a Commencement speech. Ah, that would be beautiful.

10. Create a charity that would have a major impact on one huge issue facing the world.

11. Help at least three of my artist friends become internationally known and loved.
12. Turn what we do with +Secret Santa into a global phenomenon each year.
13. Establish a network of centers throughout the world that would service start-ups, people seeking work, people needing help with promoting whatever their cause. If in conjunction with Google, cool.
14. Establish a scholarship in my name or my family's name that would give a decent amount of money for visionaries and dreamers who want to create or make something as they enter college.
15. Legally marry my honey and go on a honeymoon to Prague and Paris.

These are but a few of mine. I bet you all have some great ones. What are they?

Iron Man vs. Tron Mashup

Rubies, Diamonds, and Holding $20,000,000 In Your Hands

Cupid’s arrows set with rubies and diamonds, piercing a ruby-set diamond heart. This brooch dates from circa 1900.

I couldn't stop staring at this tonight. I'm not one who's into the bling (that's the partner) but this reminded me of something.

Seven years ago or so, back when I was a Realtor, we had just joined Sotheby's, and we're invited back to New York City. Well, the highlight of our trip was a night spent at the Sotheby's auction house (Sotheby's is the famous auction house founded in London in 1744).

It was amazing, being surrounded by millions of dollars worth of paintings. But that night, we had a special reception/dinner and before dinner, and we were introduced to something new for Sotheby's: they were representing jewels and diamonds.

It was new for them, and as a treat, models walked around with $10M and $20M worth of diamonds on their necks and wrists. I imagine there were probably hundreds of millions of dollars of gems in that event that night. It was incredible seeing heavily armed guards everywhere and knowing what treasures we were witnessing.

They let us guests hold them (and some of the ladies got to try them on.) I know know what ten and twenty million dollars worth of diamonds looks and feels like! It was a trip. Yeah, this brooch reminded me of that glamorous night in New York. Imagine how much money this was in 1900...

Buttons

A special service of CircleCount.com is the following button.

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
