NASA2,174,583Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008342

FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS9,167For the first time ever, @103052407716987048126 is holding a HANGOUT. And it's not just any hangout - *it's a Mayan End of the World Party!* I figured since all good things must come to an end we might as well go out with a BANG!

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.

Jessica Northey1,775,167Join @115263347034954886450  Wednesday October 24th starting 5pm PT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eDGGFu-Ok9w We'll be talking about Americana and folk music with @115355394914388821672, @101855386466968203040, @102002299339025067376, @107291158434082397409 as well as @111956683258824284439  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 with that – but that’s my opinion. I never said that the music was bad, just different. Twenty years later, the definition of Americana is not that simple in my mind. One of the best albums of late in the format is Radney Foster’s current album, DEL RIO, TEXAS REVISITED: UNPLUGGED AND LONESOME , is a stunning re-take on his classic 1992 album DEL RIO, TEXAS 1959. The songs are the same that were radio hits back in the early 1990s. They were Country then, what changed? When artists like Patty Loveless release new projects, they get a warmer reception in the Americana format than Country – and this is by an artist that is a former CMA Female Vocalist of the Year. Granted, she wasn’t cutting Bluegrass music back in 1988 as her last album was, but the voice is still as pure and stunning as ever. But, Americana reaches far beyond the Country format. There’s tinges of Blues, Rock, Gospel, and Bluegrass that are sprinkled throughout. So, is Americana “anything outside of the mainstream?” I don’t know. The Civil Wars, a critical favorite, recently collaborated with Taylor Swift on “Safe and Sound.” What do you call that?  Part of my continuing education concerning “Americana” 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. It's somehow a kind of reciprocally membership, which is a signal for others :) You, my circle members, are some of the most precious people on G+, and you have to be sure of that.So, for my followers, especially the new ones, it'll be good for you to add this circle because you'll gain a lot on your stream! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-12-11 22:33:4849412866154

Asked and Answered

After eight years+ together I popped the question to Blaine today, and got a definite yes! We're going to get hitched sometime soon over in Fort Wayne, Indiana (as our messed-up state still won't allow this for us).

Later, when Ohio gets its act together, we'll do this again and invite the world to something cool. I'd like to do something more formal later, and have things like invites, an actual ceremony, and registering etc. For now, we want to do this for us.

True Trust

It's really interesting how trust works in our lives. Sometimes it takes us years and years to #trust people in our lives, whether it's people close to us, or people we've just met. But then -- sometimes you know within 30 seconds that you will forever trust a person you've just met.

At least that's been my experience in life. I've traveled around the world and I've relied on the kindness of strangers more times than I can count. I've lived in flats overseas where I've had 50, 60 different roommates over the years, so trust is a huge issue for me.

I bring this up because I've spent the last four days working a booth in Fort Wayne, Indiana at their Home & Garden show, and trust was something I had instantly with the guys on either side of me. Each day, thousands of people have walked by our booths... more »

I bring this up because I've spent the last four days working a booth in Fort Wayne, Indiana at their Home & Garden show, and trust was something I had instantly with the guys on either side of me. Each day, thousands of people have walked by our booths (over 15,000 alone yesterday!)

I knew, right away, in less than 30 seconds, that I had amazing neighbors.

I knew it with every fiber of my being. Strange how that happens - but you always know when it does. I knew that I could take a quick break, or be away from my booth and these guys had my back. They could make sales for me and collect money and everything was good. We had an instant connection.

I'm not sure if it's a sixth sense, of an innate ability we all have, but you can't deny that you know it when it happens to you.

One one side of me at the show, I had my own Jedi Master, Ed. He's a road warrior and has done hundreds of shows, He was a font of information and advice and we hit it off instantly. On the other side of me, I met +Ryan Meinika and we clicked immediately. I knew right away that we would have great convos, and I loved taking with him and his wife. It really is so funny how serendipity jumps into our lives sometimes. I shocked him on the last day and mentioned me and +Blaine Hall getting married soon, and that was fun. (I had avoided the "Are you married?" questions for a few days...) grin

He was genuinely surprised. We'll be at that same show next year since I hit an absolute sales home run -- but I wanted you all to know that if you're open to meeting new people -- the rewards can be incredible! Sometimes, in my humble opinion, we have to completely trust our gut and run with it. For me, it paid huge dividends!

Yoda vs. Aliens: Who Wins?

Check out this incredible piece of fan art featuring Yoda about to take on a swarm of Xenmorphs! The illustration was created by Toby Carr, and as you can see, it turned out really badass! I have no doubt that Yoda will easily take them all out. I'd just like to see it all play out! Someone please animate this! Cough, +Dunken K Bliths!

These 53 Colorized Photos Will Change The Way You Look At History... Forever

Since color photography was rare until the 1970s, most of our history up until then is recorded in black and white. Members of Reddit's Colorized History board offer a unique perspective by presenting history in its full color spectrum.

Random Acts of Kindness

As a kid, I was the one who went door to door in my neighborhood with my orange box, collecting funds for Unicef. Later, I was the kid who was five or six that held a carnival for Jerry's Kids (afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy) and tried to involve my entire community. As a teenager, when I got confirmed in my church, I spent a year working in an assisted living facility directly across from my house, working as an activities director.

It was the hardest year of my life, but also the most rewarding, as I clearly knew that I loved helping people. It wasn't my life mission, but it was a close second.

As a newcomer on G+, I created a page called +Helping Others, a page that addresses and increases awareness of causes around the world. Full circle, people. Full circle. It's a huge part of who I am - and what I've always... more »

It's a huge part of who I am - and what I've always tried to do: to give my heart and soul towards making a better life for someone other than myself.

I love this story, and while Blaine and I won't be having kids, in my heart of hearts, it's something I always wanted. I would have made a damn good dad - and I would have been immensely proud of Xander and his sister!

Paintings, Murals and Scale

When I first saw this, I was instantly reminded of works I had always admired by Gustave Caillebotte, and of other artists who created huge works. People like Diego Rivera, who created enormous murals; and so many artists I observed walking the galleries of the The de Young Museum in San Francisco, or the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, or works at the J. Paul Getty Museum in LA. They always jumped out at me due to the scale. I stared at many of them for hours.

There was something I always admired in large-scale works, and that probably ties into my love of grand-scale architecture. The fact that I first wanted to be an architect, I'm sure, has played into this slight fixation with these works. 

In any case, I like work like this ...

Childhood Memories, and Thinking About How Far Back I Can Go

Photograph by Ashlee Raubach Photography

How far back does your oldest memory go? For me, I have vivid memories of my pre-school years. Vivid. I remember every detail of the classroom, the teacher, projects we worked on, specific paintings we did. It goes that far back.

Next would be me playing the drums at age five or so. I remember my little blue drum set. I remember everything about my room, music played for me then (even my aunt playing "Puff the Magic Dragon" for me on an old phonograph. Cough). I loved those drums, and to tell you the truth, as a lifelong vocalist, my connection to percussion and rhythm has never left me. I think its started with that drum set (which I know had to have driven my parents crazy. But I was a Ritalin kid, so, oh well. :-))

Superheroes

If you could be any superhero - any at all, from any era, any comic, any story, which one would you be? It's a tough question.

Each hero has qualities that are good, and bad. Each has deep convictions and motivations; each has a seeming destiny to fulfill. They're complicated. And multi-faceted; they are driven in many cases towards absolutes, whereas life is seldom composed of absolutes. It's more a series of diversions and distractions and other roads taken for many of us. That being said -- who would you truly like to be?

It could be a #cosplay situation, or it could be more than that. You decide. Name your superhero (or your supervillain), and tell us why...

How Many Times Have You Seen The FIRST Star Wars film?

The perfect question for #starwarstuesday  (and to give a little honesty to your significant other. ha!) True fans will have a pretty good idea. Casual fans, give your best guesstimate.  I edited this thanks to +Hans Brauer since I wasn't clear!

1. ZERO - Never wanted to, or never got around to it. (a curse on your House, by the way. I kid. Maybe not.)

2. 1-5 Times - You're a fringe fan. You like it, but not enough to truly commit.

3. 6-20 Times - You're an engaged fan who sees the value of something great in the cinematic Pantheon. Congrats.

4. 21-50 times - You are a true fan, and though you are still a Padewan, your commitment shows true dedication and promise. Beaucoup congrats.

Sundays

I have to admit that Sundays confuse me now. In years past, they were always the day I would walk to my local coffeehouse and spread out, reading the papers, drinking coffee, and relax. Now, for the past eight years or so, living on my farm, that ritual is gone.

Everything I loved about Sundays - reading actual printed papers and magazines, connecting with other people in person, relaxing - all of those things are gone for me now. I live on a farm in Ohio, a very isolated property, and there isn't anything like a Starbucks around us here, or even many printed items anymore. Now, it's all about online mags and apps and reading everything through your tablet or phone.

I'm not sure if the average person understands exactly what we've lost by being so utterly disconnected nowadays - but for those of us who have been on this planet for any... more »

I'm not sure if the average person understands exactly what we've lost by being so utterly disconnected nowadays - but for those of us who have been on this planet for any length of time, it feels like a lot.

Sundays are simply not the same for me anymore, and that makes me kind of sad, knowing how great they once were. My gut tells me that Millennials will have no idea whatsoever of what I'm talking about...

Lego Realism

"My kids build a lot of things like castles, hulking great cars and Ninjago-inspired dojos with their Lego. I think I might nudge them in the direction of creating something more relevant to me. Like a Kitchen Aid mixer.

Bruce Lowell sculpts everyday objects out of Lego. Aren’t they divine?! The detail on some of the sculptures is amazing – check out that chocolate-iced doughnut with sprinkles and you’ll see what I mean.

Lowell has built an amazing collection of sculptures that you can see as part of his Flickr stream. There’s a Fisher-Price Corn Popper made of Lego, a hot dog, a letterbox, mac’n’cheese, a padlock and lots more.

The Flickr stream gets really interesting when you hit Lowell’s photos of how he organises his Lego bricks. You’d be right in thinking that he has a very good sorting system for hisLego pieces. It... more »

Lowell has built an amazing collection of sculptures that you can see as part of his Flickr stream. There’s a Fisher-Price Corn Popper made of Lego, a hot dog, a letterbox, mac’n’cheese, a padlock and lots more.

The Flickr stream gets really interesting when you hit Lowell’s photos of how he organises his Lego bricks. You’d be right in thinking that he has a very good sorting system for his Lego pieces. It’s incredible. When you notice that some photos are captioned “West Shed” and “East Shed” and “Ten drawer things I use for the majority of my grey pieces” (below) you begin to understand just how big his Lego collection is."

This Is How You Hide An Aircraft Factory

During WWII, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a Japanese air attack. They covered it with stunning camouflage, making it appear to be a rural subdivision from the air.

This is very cool and very inventive. This has been out for a while, but it still impresses.

The Bad Photos of NASA's Golden Era You Never Get to See

We are used to see the epic, awe-inspiring, perfect photos from the golden age of NASA, during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. Those are not the photos that you will find in Drewatts Bloomsbury's auction. These are all pretty shitty—poorly exposed, badly framed, out of focus, or just plain boring.

But while these photos would not be featured in a book like Full Moon, some may argue that many of them feel like art. In fact, for the Instagram, post-vanguardist generations, these images are art—like their blurry, oversaturated pictures of their feet and food.

The reality is that these images weren't intended to be this way. These were supposed to be picture perfect and scientifically valuable, informational, not artistic. But it's hard to take photos in space. Crap pictures werebou... more »

But it's hard to take photos in space. Crap pictures were bound to happen. Some of them are just plain boring—"I meant to take a photo of my astronaut pal, but that's what I got: A crappy skewed photo of a rock and two legs." It is ok. Astronauts are humans, just like us.

Even Ansel Adams took crappy pictures. We just saw the good ones.

Thelonious Monk Was The Man

Thelonious Sphere Monk (October 10, 1917 – February 17, 1982) was an American jazz pianist and composer. Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including "'Round Midnight," "Blue Monk," "Ruby, My Dear," "In Walked Bud," and "Well, You Needn't."

Monk is the second-most recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington, which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed more than 1,000 pieces, whereas Monk wrote about 70.

His compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists, and are consistent with Monk's unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of silences and hesitations.

He was renowned for his distinctive style in suits, hats, and sunglasses. He was also noted for an idiosyncratic habit observed at times during performances: while the other musicians in the band continued playing, he would stop, stand up from the keyboard, and dance for a few moments before returning to the piano.

Monk is one of five jazz musicians to have been featured on the cover of Time, after Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, and Duke Ellington, and before Wynton Marsalis.

Clint Eastwood filmed a documentary about him called Straight, No Chaser and here's an excerpt. Worth adding to your queue.

Rocket Engineer Wernher von Braun In Front of his Saturn V Engine

Wernher Magnus Maximilian, Freiherr von Braun (March 23, 1912 – June 16, 1977) was a German and later American aerospace engineer and space architect. He was one of the leading figures in the development of rocket technology in Germany and the United States and is considered one of the "Fathers of Rocket Science". He was also a member of the Nazi party and the SS, and was suspected of perpetrating war crimes during World War II.

After the war, he and selected members of his rocket team were taken to the United States as part of the secret Operation Paperclip. Braun worked on the United States Army's intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) program before his group was assimilated by NASA. Under NASA, he served as director of the newly formed Marshall Space Flight Center and as the chief architect of the Saturn V launch vehicle, the superbooster that propelled the Apollo spacecraft to the Moon. According to one NASA source, he is "without doubt, the greatest rocket scientist in history". In 1975 he received the National Medal of Science.

House

Any other fans out there? I have every episode squirreled away for rainy days and I never fell out of love with this lovable curmudgeon...

House (sometimes as House, M.D.) is an American television medical drama that originally ran on the Fox network for eight seasons, from November 16, 2004 to May 21, 2012. The show's main character is Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), a pain medication-dependent, unconventional, misanthropic medical genius who leads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton–Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (PPTH) in New Jersey.

Over 8 seasons, 177 episodes aired. As I've written before, as I was such an Über fan, I have purposely not watched one episode (not the last).

The GEEK ZODIAC Redux: Chinese New Year: The Year of The Goat (Sheep)

To give this a great twist (as I did in the past) which sign are you? The Chinese New Year starts on Thursday in America...

The Chinese commonly regard sheep as an auspicious animal, and the Year of the Sheep, therefore, heralds a year of promise and prosperity.

Individuals born in this zodiac year have been supposed to share certain characteristics with other individuals also born in years of the same animal sign. Similarly, years sharing the same animal sign have been supposed to share certain characteristics, repeating over their 12/60 year cycle. The shared characteristics in this case are traits attributed to goats.

Similarly, years sharing the same animal sign have been supposed to share certain characteristics, repeating over their 12/60 year cycle. The shared characteristics in this case are traits attributed to goats.

Due to the luni-solar nature of the traditional Chinese calendar system, the "zodiacal" year does not align with the Western calendar: new years are determined by a system which results in each new year beginning on a new moon sometime between late January to mid-to-late February. Goat aspects can also enter by other chronomantic factors or measures, such as hourly.

In Chinese astrology Goats are described as loving-peace and "kind" and "popular". With the addition of the wood element, the Goat characteristic is thought to love peace and to be helpful and trusting, but yet also to be "clinging" and of a nature resistant to change. 

If you were born in 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 -- you were born under this Chinese astrological sign.

Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Published on This Day 130 Years Ago

On this day in 1885, Mark Twain publishes his famous--and famously controversial--novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Twain (the pen name of Samuel Clemens) first introduced Huck Finn as the best friend of Tom Sawyer, hero of his tremendously successful novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer(1876). Though Twain saw Huck's story as a kind of sequel to his earlier book, the new novel was far more serious, focusing on the institution of slavery and other aspects of life in the antebellum South.

At the book's heart is the journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on a raft. Jim runs away because he is about to be sold and separated from his wife and children, and Huck goes with him to help him get to Ohio and freedom.... more »

Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Published on This Day 130 Years Ago

On this day in 1885, Mark Twain publishes his famous--and famously controversial--novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Twain (the pen name of Samuel Clemens) first introduced Huck Finn as the best friend of Tom Sawyer, hero of his tremendously successful novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer(1876). Though Twain saw Huck's story as a kind of sequel to his earlier book, the new novel was far more serious, focusing on the institution of slavery and other aspects of life in the antebellum South.

At the book's heart is the journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on a raft. Jim runs away because he is about to be sold and separated from his wife and children, and Huck goes with him to help him get to Ohio and freedom. Huck narrates the story in his distinctive voice, offering colorful descriptions of the people and places they encounter along the way.

The most striking part of the book is its satirical look at racism, religion and other social attitudes of the time. While Jim is strong, brave, generous and wise, many of the white characters are portrayed as violent, stupid or simply selfish, and the naive Huck ends up questioning the hypocritical, unjust nature of society in general.

Even in 1885, two decades after the Emancipation Proclamation and the end of the Civil War, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn landed with a splash. A month after its publication, a Concord, Massachusetts, library banned the book, calling its subject matter "tawdry" and its narrative voice "coarse" and "ignorant." Other libraries followed suit, beginning a controversy that continued long after Twain's death in 1910.

In the 1950s, the book came under fire from African-American groups for being racist in its portrayal of black characters, despite the fact that it was seen by many as a strong criticism of racism and slavery. As recently as 1998, an Arizona parent sued her school district, claiming that making Twain's novel required high school reading made already existing racial tensions even worse.

Aside from its controversial nature and its continuing popularity with young readers, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been hailed by many serious literary critics as a masterpiece. No less a judge than Ernest Hemingway famously declared that the book marked the beginning of American literature: "There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since."

The Instruments I Tend To Love First Are...

Here's a question for you to ponder. Have you noticed yourself drawn more towards one instrument (or section of instruments) more than others? I started playing drums at a young age and have always loved the percussion section, but lately I'm more drawn to towards the guitar, and stringed instruments. 

So - what would be your current FIRST CHOICE for the category of instruments you're most drawn towards? You can love them all, but what catches your attention FIRST?

Here's a huge, complete list worldwide instruments>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_musical_instruments

Apollo 15: The Lunar Rover

1971: Apollo 15 astronauts David Scott and James Irwin drive the Lunar Roving Vehicle on the surface of the moon. It’s the first off-planet automobile ride.

As a kid, I was of course wildly fascinated by the Apollo program. The Rover, though, really captured my imagination. I always day-dreamed about journeys on the moon; endless exploration and of what treasures the astronauts might discover. That fascination has never left my mind, and when I got to watch the Juno launch in 2011, standing right next to the NASA countdown clock, one bucket-list item was checked off that day!

Forty years after Neil Armstrong made his giant leap for mankind, the Apollo program remains a singular cultural and technological achievement. The application of so much technology to a single goal was nearly without precedent. Amongst all the gadgetry born oft... more »

As a kid, I was of course wildly fascinated by the Apollo program. The Rover, though, really captured my imagination. I always day-dreamed about journeys on the moon; endless exploration and of what treasures the astronauts might discover. That fascination has never left my mind, and when I got to watch the Juno launch in 2011, standing right next to the NASA countdown clock, one bucket-list item was checked off that day!

Forty years after Neil Armstrong made his giant leap for mankind, the Apollo program remains a singular cultural and technological achievement. The application of so much technology to a single goal was nearly without precedent. Amongst all the gadgetry born of the Apollo program, the lunar rover ranks near the top of the cool scale.

The rover was the most famous electric vehicle until that slick little two-seater from Tesla Motors came along, and it remains a technological marvel. The amount of tech packed into that little buggy still boggles the mind.

The rovers were used to give the astronauts greater leeway in exploring the moon during the later, more science-heavy Apollo missions. Those space suits are bulky, and walking in them wasn’t easy. So, having a set of wheels expanded the astronauts’ range, because they weren’t restricted to walking short distances.

Boeing built the rover and needed just 17 short months to develop it. Not only did the rover have to carry two men wearing space suits, but it also had to haul whatever rocks and dirt the astronauts found interesting. The main design concerns were, as always, weight and performance.

Cost was not a big concern. The original budget was $19 million for four rovers. Cost overruns — in a government program? I’m shocked, shocked! — doubled the final price tag to $38 mil (worth about $200 million in today’s cash).

The rover didn’t arrive on the moon ready to roll. It was folded like a Transformer and packed into a cargo hold. When the time came, the astronauts used a system of pulleys, reels and tapes to lower the vehicle from the payload bay. After that, the rover took over. Its wheels unfolded automatically and locked into place as the rover opened like an Autobot.

The LRV was 10 feet, 2 inches long with a 7.5-foot wheelbase and a 6-foot tread width. It was less than 45 inches high.

Weight is the enemy of all things that fly, especially those things flying into space. Boeing made the rover supermodel-light. It tipped the scales at a featherweight 463 pounds, a figure that must have made Colin Chapman swoon with envy.

The frame was made of welded 2219 aluminum-alloy tubing. Everything else was aluminum, magnesium or other exotic light alloys. Light, but strong: The little lunar runabout could carry a payload of 1,080 pounds.

The “tires” weren’t tires at all, but zinc-coated woven steel strands attached to the rim and discs of formed aluminum. On top of the zinc and steel mesh were titanium chevrons that covered 50 percent of the contact area to provide traction.

The electric motors — made by GM subsidiary Delco — mounted within the wheels. Each 54-amp DC series-wound motor cranked out 1.9 kilowatts at 10,000 rpm and was attached to its wheel by an 80:1 harmonic drive. The brakes were mechanically operated. Top speed on a smooth, level surface was about 8 mph.

The rover was controlled with a joystick-like T-shaped hand controller located between the two seats. It controlled the four drive motors, two steering motors and brakes. Push it forward and off you went. Pulling back slowed you down. Move the joystick in the direction you wanted to go and the rover turned. It was pretty much like using your Xbox.

The lunar rovers were used on the Apollo 15, 16 and 17 missions, and together they covered a little more than 55 miles. That doesn’t sound like much, but it gave the astronauts an upgrade in range, mobility and payload capacity that paid huge dividends in data.

On the other hand, it works out to $3.6 million per mile in 2009 dollars. MSRP = Moon Sure Rides Pricey.

Three rovers were left in place on the lunar surface. The fourth was intended for the Apollo 18 mission, which was cancelled. That LRV (one owner, never been used) now lives at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. The rig on display at the Museum of Flight in Seattle is an original Boeing mock-up.

But as much rocket science as the Lunar Roving Vehicle had packed in it, it still had an owners manual, which you, the taxpayer, can download.

Music Lovers Start Early

Well, it was that way in my case, and I'm guessing it's that way for many people. Music grabs our attention, and as it's a universal language, it's a whole world of freedom for youngsters.  I love this shot of the little girl taking it all in. Perfect!

Asked and Answered

After eight years+ together I popped the question to Blaine today, and got a definite yes! We're going to get hitched sometime soon over in Fort Wayne, Indiana (as our messed-up state still won't allow this for us).

Later, when Ohio gets its act together, we'll do this again and invite the world to something cool. I'd like to do something more formal later, and have things like invites, an actual ceremony, and registering etc. For now, we want to do this for us.

US3 - Cantaloop

Going back to my early 90s Prague days, this song RULED the dance floor in clubs all over town. Acid-Jazz reigned supreme, and this song INSTANTLY got people to dance like there was no tomorrow.

At the time, we would hang out at the subterranean club, The Roxy, about three stories underground, and this was our 90s song! Goodnight all, and flow with the GROOVE!

The Pink Panther

Do you ever have one of those nights when a picture or image (or song) pops back into your head? For me, it was this song tonight. And the films. I grew up hearing this theme, and seeing Clouseau stumble through the movies. It's still cool today!

The Pink Panther is a series of comedy films featuring an inept French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau. The series began with the release of The Pink Panther. The role of Clouseau was originated by, and is most closely associated with, Peter Sellers. Most of the films were directed and written by Blake Edwards, with theme music composed by Henry Mancini.

In the films, the Pink Panther is a large and valuable pink diamond which is first shown in the opening film in the series. The diamond is called the "Pink Panther", because the flaw at its center, when viewed closely, is said to resemble a leaping pink panther. The phrase reappears in the title of the fourth film, The Return of the Pink Panther, in which the theft of the diamond is again the center of the plot. The phrase was used for all the subsequent films in the series, even when the jewel did not figure in the plot. It ultimately appeared in six of the eleven films.

Goebel West Germany Elephant

My grandmother always loved elephants, and upon her death, she let all my cousins choose between her hundreds of elephant statues and figurines, but this elephant specifically, she wanted me to have, as I was her oldest grandchild, and this was her most favorite piece.

Nobody in the family has any idea of what it should be insured for, or what value it might have - any information on it at all, really. 

It stands about a foot tall, is about 1.5' wide and weighs around 8 lbs. or so. To give you a comparison, most Hummel's and Goebel's are inches tall normally. Very small. This is massive.

A number is stamped into one of the legs -- 43 012 32. The logo Goebel West Germany is also stamped there. It's dated 1980, and handwritten initials say AG and this (wow)  6/12. Meaning only twelve of these weree... more »

If you know anything about Hummel or Goebel Statues or where I might find more information, please let me know. I love this for its connection to my Von, but I'd still like to know a bit more about it...

Charles Bridge, Prague

That's the heart of Prague, in the Old Town. It's a tourist mecca. But when I lived there, sometimes, say at 4am, there wasn't a soul on that bridge.

Those were the times when fellow expats and I got mischievous and found ways to get inside the bridge. Ah, good times! Man, the best days of my life, living in Praha for seven years!

Technics SL-1200 - Released in 1972, a DJ Standard!

Technics SL-1200 is a series of turntables manufactured from October 1972 until 2010 by Matsushita under the brand name of Technics. S means "Stereo", L means "Player". Originally released as a high fidelity consumer record player, it quickly became adopted among radio and club disc jockeys, thanks to the direct drive high torque motor design, making it, initially, suitable for pushbutton cueing and starting of tracks on radio.

Later, when the use of slip-mats for cueing and beat-mixing (and scratching) became popular, the quartz-controlled high torque motor system enabled records to be mixed with consistency and accuracy. A primary design goal was for hi-fidelity, but having good build quality, control over wow and flutter, and minimized resonance led to the equipment being particularly suitable for... more »

A primary design goal was for hi-fidelity, but having good build quality, control over wow and flutter, and minimized resonance led to the equipment being particularly suitable for use in nightclubs and other public-address applications.

Since its release in 1978, SL-1200MK2 and its successors have been the most common turntable for DJing and Scratching (also known as Turntablism). Producers, DJs & MCs refer to the Technics turntable as the "Tec 12's", "Wheels of Steel" and the "Ones & Twos". Apart from their iconic status in hip-hop and electronic music culture, Technics 1200s are also commonly used in recording studios and for non-electronic live music performance.

Since 1972, more than 3 million units have been sold. It is widely regarded as one of the most durable and reliable turntables ever produced. Many of the models manufactured in the 1970s are still in heavy use.

According to notable journalist Tom Terrell of NPR, the Technics 1200 SL direct-drive turntable is "the most important musical instrument of the last two-and-a-half decades."

Gerald Pasker, My Grandfather

I worked all last weekend and each night lately adding scanned images of pictures and docs to a private family tribute page for my grandmother who just passed.

My grandfather died before I was born, just months before. He was 44 when he died in a tragic plane crash in Canada. I've wondered so many things about him over the years. I just recently saw this picture for the first time, and it reminded me of his early adventures, safaris, around-the-world trips. He lived life, and left behind an amazing legacy with his children.

He was a builder, an inventor, mainly of hoists and hydraulic parts, and I hope I get some of sense of adventure and love of tinkering from him.

I'd love to figure out an easy way to make videos using the Ken Burns Effect on a PC, to tie is his and my grandmothers photos and videos. Ideas... more »

Anyway, this is my grandfather, and I wonder where he is in this shot...

The War of the Roses - Two Houses Divided

This is a fantastic family tree that shows the division in a clear way.

I'm searching for the perfect program/app to build my own family tree, and to build the perfect tribute site for my recently deceased grandmother. Genealogy has always interested me, and now with an archive of newspaper clippings, photos, and ephemera - I think I'd like to compile everything into one spot.

Recommendations, anyone?

I'm building this for the family, and for future generations, but funds are limited, and my many .tiff images are super large -- so I need economical ideas, and sites/apps will will remain in place for multiple generations. Let's hear your ideas. But in any case, I'd love to start by building a cool and visual family tree like this one!

John Lennon's Manuscript For 'In My Life' Recorded by the Beatles

Lennon's original manuscript for 'In My Life', from his personal Beatles-lyrics notebook.

It's funny, some of my screenplay scenes, songs, and definitely some poems show extensive editing like this. Though sometimes, I'll only change things a little, as I did with my Robin Williams tribute poem, The Showman in The Bedazzled Crocodile Suit. Most often, my muse takes over and phrasing, cadence, and all the various parts that make up my creations tend to flow well.

Blondie at CBGB in New York City, 1977

I always wished i could have seen a concert or two at this legendary club in NYC. I'm sure some native New Yorker's have fond memories of the joint. Got a story?

CBGB was a music club opened in 1973 by Hilly Kristal at 315 Bowery, intersecting Bleecker Street, in the East Village. The letters CBGB were for country, bluegrass, and blues, Kristal's original vision. Yet CBGB soon became a famed venue of punk rock and new wave bands like the Ramones, Television, Patti Smith Group, Blondie, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Talking Heads. From the early 1980s onward, CBGB was known for hardcore punk.

One storefront beside CBGB became the "CBGB Record Canteen", a record shop and café. In the late 1980s, "CBGB Record Canteen" was converted into an art gallery and second performance... more »

Yet CBGB soon became a famed venue of punk rock and new wave bands like the Ramones, Television, Patti Smith Group, Blondie, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Talking Heads. From the early 1980s onward, CBGB was known for hardcore punk.

One storefront beside CBGB became the "CBGB Record Canteen", a record shop and café. In the late 1980s, "CBGB Record Canteen" was converted into an art gallery and second performance space, "CB's 313 Gallery". CB's Gallery was played by music artists of milder sounds, such as acoustic rock, folk, jazz, or experimental music, such as Dadadah and Toshi Reagon, while CBGB continued to showcase mainly hardcore punk, post punk, metal, and alternative rock. On the other side, CBGB was operating a small cafe & bar in the mid-1990s, which served excellent classic New York pizza, among other items.

At about year 2000, CBGB entered a protracted dispute over allegedly unpaid rent amounts until the landlord, Bowery Residents' Committee', sued in 2005 and lost the case, but a deal to renew CBGB's lease, expiring in 2006, failed. The club closed upon its final concert, played by Patti Smith, on October 15, 2006. CBGB Radio launched on the iheartradio platform in 2010, and CBGB music festivals began in 2012. In 2013, CBGB's onetime building, 315 Bowery, was added to the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Bowery Historic District.

The Principal

So, at work, I'm toying with the idea of doing a 13-part web series. I'm working on loose scripts now and have all the episode titles. It's fun, and it's wild to see what's being done in this area.

This series, "The Principal" is sponsored by a spa company called +Bullfrog Spas, but you never really know it until the end. It's a funny series that was well-produced, and one that will appeal to that coveted 18-34 demographic. Hmm - I think we might try this. I'll post details here if we go down that road...

The Walking Dead Is Back ... In Three Days!

Whew, we made it. It's been a long haul again, and with such huge events at the end of the mid-season. Does anyone else think that at this point anyone who now gets in Daryl and Rick's way is doomed? I think I would get far away from them, now that they have new motivation...

Who's watching on Sunday?

The Marmots and Me: The Schoolboy, 8, Who Has Struck Up a Remarkable Friendship with a Colony of Alpine Animals

A beautiful story about animals and mankind. Very sweet. All the pictures at the link are incredible...

They are notoriously shy around humans, beating their tails and chattering their teeth to try to warn us off before emitting loud whistles to tell other members of their colony to flee.

But when these alpine marmots see Matteo Walch, they scuttle to his side and show him nothing but affection. The eight-year-old built up a remarkable relationship with the creatures since first being taken to see them by his nature-loving family four years ago.

The family return to visit the colony in Groslocker in the Austrian Alps for two weeks every year. Matteo’s mother Michaela said: "Their friendship has lasted for more than four years now. Hel... more »

He loves those animals and they are not at all afraid of Matteo because he has a feeling towards them and they understand that."

All I Want to Do Is Kill My Computer, and Have a Great Beatdown Like the 'Office Space' Guys Did

Over the weekend, I switched back to my old computer. Big fu^@in mistake. I went from the the smoothness of my Chromebook to the lame-ass, Windows-runnin' POS Acer. Why I switched? A few reasons. I'm scanning a huge amount of docs and photos for a tribute site for my grandmother who recently passed away. Second, the computer has the extra ports I need for microphones and the aforementioned scanner, and for much more. My little Chromebook is pathetic when it comes to that versatility. It simply is inadequate.

Then, to add frosting to this sad cake, tonight, I was reminded again of how much Microshit loves endless updates and taking control of your computer automatically for all of that. Add in slow load times for every.single.page and yes --- this is officially a... more »

Then, to add frosting to this sad cake, tonight, I was reminded again of how much Microshit loves endless updates and taking control of your computer automatically for all of that. Add in slow load times for every.single.page and yes --- this is officially a goddamned rant against BG (or who I like to call the Devil).

I'm at enough of a disadvantage already, being surrounded by farmland - but throw all of this extra shit into the mix and yes, this is me having a tech meltdown. Did I mention how deeply I hate (and have always hated) Microsoft?

Anyway -- imagine that's my computer in the video and have at it, virtually, with me!
