NASA2,280,924Having 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 16:30:008339

FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS9,858For 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. 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, @116397559521404580243  @110434060057917582769 @107291158434082397409 @113489919044803972423 @104556905831991887746 and @103389452828130864950 if any of them are around!

Jessica Northey1,798,411Join @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

I'm Getting Hitched!

To let you all know, after 9 years together, +Blaine Hall and I will be crossing the border into Indiana to get married in July. +Scott Cramer and +Keith Cramer have been awesome, and are going to host our party!! They generously offered to put on an amazing display for us, and i can never say no to them, because we love them to death!

The date is probably in late July (TBA -To Be Determined) and while I will continually give "The bird" to Governor Pence over his idiotic 'Religious Freedom" law, we have decided that we love the Cramer Brothers MORE than this stupid law. So we WILL be getting married in Indiana this summer.

If you're in the area (or can be) .. it's going to be a MASSIVE party! (We mentioned this to actors Zach Braff and Donald Faison (Scrubs) who have publicly offered to make pizza for ourc... more »

Game of Thrones: Great House Banners

Are you ready for the fifth season? It's starting this Sunday!

Look, some shows just pull you into a new world and you become an instant fan. GoT is that sort of show. I recently watched a behind-the-scenes special on HBO and the logistics of filming on multiple continents is incredible. It's astonishing how much effort and work is put into the production of this show -- and it shows.

This series is all about quality, and story, and every week, the story lines bring you back into the fold the following week. Everything about this show screams "longevity" and "quality" and it is worth watching.

Cool side note: I saw one of my previous posts on G+ ranked higher than Wikipedia in the Google search. Made my day!

Question: Which Great House do you most closely identify with? Which... more »

Sherlock

If you've followed my posts for any length of time, you know I've always been enamored with the World's Only Consulting Detective, Sherlock Holmes. Well, in his latest incarnation in BBC's Sherlock, at least.

I'd like to invite you to follow a new page entirely on faith. The page is +The Sherlock Society (https://plus.google.com/b/105972819880728891605/105972819880728891605/posts)

As I have ZERO followers, it's difficult to tag it in, ... yet. There will be a complete story later of the work I've put into my love of Sherlock for other pages, but for now:

Would you do me the honor of giving me blind faith and knowing that I honestly am an Über fan of Sherlock?

The Art of Palmistry - A Believer, Or Not?

Do you remember being a kid and going to carnivals and fairs, and there was always a fortune teller around? Did you ever have your palm read, where the reader talked about your "life line?" 

What do you think? There may be something to it, or I don't believe or don't know enough about it. Weigh-in here...

About Palm Reading

Palmistry, or chiromancy (also spelled cheiromancy; from Greek kheir (χεῖρ, ός; “hand”) and manteia (μαντεία, ας; “divination”)), is the claim of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as palm reading or chirology.

The practice is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations. Those who practice chiromancy are generally called palmists, palm readers, hand readers, hand analysts, or chirologists.

The belief behind Palmistry is that the hand mirrors the individual by measuring the following characteristics:

Uniqueness
Sentiments
Talents
Wellbeing
Power
Interactions with others
Worries
Oddities

Disney Characters Surprise Shoppers

I remembered this from not long ago, and it reminded me how incredibly large the Disney footprint is. This brand has got to be at or near the top of the world's most recognizable brands.

It makes you think about creation and artistry, and how hard work and creativity can create a brand that moves across multiple generations, and how that brand can become global. When you really think about it, it's a testament to that side of our brain that lets us roam free and become kids again...

The Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906

At 5:13 a.m., on 18 April 1906, an earthquake estimated at close to 8.0 on the Richter scale strikes San Francisco, California, killing hundreds of people as it topples numerous buildings. The quake was caused by a slip of the San Andreas Fault over a segment about 275 miles long, and shock waves could be felt from southern Oregon down to Los Angeles.

San Francisco’s brick buildings and wooden Victorian structures were especially devastated. Fires immediately broke out and–because broken water mains prevented firefighters from stopping them–firestorms soon developed citywide. At 7 a.m., U.S. Army troops from Fort Mason reported to the Hall of Justice, and San Francisco Mayor E.E. Schmitz called for the enforcement of a dusk-to-dawn curfew and authorized soldiers to shoot-to-kill anyone found looting.

San Francisco’s brick buildings and wooden Victorian structures were especially devastated. Fires immediately broke out and–because broken water mains prevented firefighters from stopping them–firestorms soon developed citywide. At 7 a.m., U.S. Army troops from Fort Mason reported to the Hall of Justice, and San Francisco Mayor E.E. Schmitz called for the enforcement of a dusk-to-dawn curfew and authorized soldiers to shoot-to-kill anyone found looting.

Meanwhile, in the face of significant aftershocks, firefighters and U.S. troops fought desperately to control the ongoing fire, often dynamiting whole city blocks to create firewalls. On April 20, 20,000 refugees trapped by the massive fire were evacuated from the foot of Van Ness Avenue onto the USS Chicago.

By April 23, most fires were extinguished, and authorities commenced the task of rebuilding the devastated metropolis. It was estimated that some 3,000 people died as a result of the Great San Francisco Earthquake and the devastating fires it inflicted upon the city. Almost 30,000 buildings were destroyed, including most of the city’s homes and nearly all the central business district.

Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Each time I see a new photo or teaser video, my heart skips a beat. Yes, I'm an ultimate Fanboy (and always have been). But today's 2mn clip blew my mind. 25 December is so damn far away! Grrr.

For the record, I mentioned on other posts that JJ is the man for the job; I am not in the least concerned that he'll do what the last three films did. I have utter faith that it's going to be cool. And, for the record, I believe VII will hit $2bn in box office revenues and will become the most successful film ever. You heard it here first.

Love Is Dancing In The Kitchen

There's something about this incredibly intimate gesture that always gets me. I'm the born Romantic of the family, and especially in movies, I love seeing these sorts of moments on film. They always stir my soul.

Husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, boyfriends and boyfriends, girlfriends and girlfriends - it's all about love. And love is the most powerful human emotion. Period. Love is what I believe our entire existence is based around. This is a great photo.

What's your favorite, intimate, dance moment with the one you love?

How about your favorite movie scenes? Two pop into my mind instantly (and they don't have to be set in a kitchen...)

Predicta: A Mid-Century Television & A Thing of Beauty

The Philco Predicta is an American television made in several models by the Philco company in the late 1950s. It is arguably the most iconic television set in existence and is to many people the "classic" 1950s TV set. With its trademark detached picture tube, it is atypical of most early television sets which were build in sturdy wooden or bakelite cabinets. It was one of the first commercially released televisions to feature a nearly flat screen.

Many Predictas were produced for the Holiday Inn hotel chain; but the design was considered too radical by everyday consumers, and many sets languished at television dealers. Slow sales, lack of a color model and very poor reliability eventually drove Philco into bankruptcy and sale in 1960.

Due in part to their 1950s styling and rarity of working examples, they are now highly sought-after collectibles. They have been featured many times in movies, TV, and music videos. Telstar acquired the rights to the name and now produces brand new sets with larger, color screens and modern internal electronics, but has not produced many sets in recent years.

Beethoven Flash Mob

I have to admit it, I get addicted to these, when I see them take on an organic nature. The obvious ones kid of bore me - but ones like this inspire me, and the way this builds in layers is beautiful.

This is a celebration of the joy of music.

Should ... Would ... Could ... Did.

That about sums up the philosophy of warriors who get things done. Like many of us, and many people we all know.

It reminds me of a story: many years ago, I was visiting my grandparents house in Sacramento. My favorite aunt, +Donna Cowen was turning 30 years old that day. As we were all hanging out, a bright red Fiat Spyder was presented to Aunt Donna as a birthday gift from my favorite Uncle, Stan. The license plate read (or close to this)-
4Ever29.

Donna has been the inspiration for me my entire life for getting to did. Her favorite quote I remember back to my teenager days: "Just do it!." I will love her eternally, and I've tried to live this mantra my entire life. Get things done. DO things. Just do it. Live life!!

The Shawshank Redemption Prison: I'll Be Visiting There Soon.

This is one of my all-time favorite movies (and a comfort film I've posted about before, one that I have watched dozens if not a hundred times.

I had no idea the exteriors were filmed here in Ohio, at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio. That's only about 2 hours away for me. Better still, I'll be taking my skimmers to a flea market there sometime this summer. It sounds like a hugely fun event for me! The prison has been prominently featured in motion pictures and plenty of "Ghost" shows, and if nothing else, it's affordable, and I'll get some great photos. Plus, I'll finally get to visit some of the locations in Shawshank!

The prison has been prominently featured in motion pictures and plenty of "Ghost" shows, and if nothing else, it's affordable, and I'll get some great photos. Plus, I'll finally get to visit some of the locations in Shawshank!

Ohio State Reformatory

The history of the Ohio State Reformatory began in 1861, the field where the reformatory would be built on was used as a training camp for Civil War soldiers. The camp's name had significant meaning to Ohio as it was named Camp Mordecai Bartley to honor the Mansfield man who served as Ohio governor in the 1840s.

In 1867, Mansfield was promoted as a candidate for the placement of the new Intermediate Penitentiary (the original name before it was changed to Ohio State Reformatory). The city raised $10,000 to purchase 30 acres of land for the prison, and the state acquired 150 acres of adjoining land for $20,000; the cost of the facility was $1,326,769. The Intermediate (Ohio State Reformatory) was intended as just that, a halfway point between the Boys Industrial School in Lancaster and the State Penitentiary in Columbus which was intended to house young first-time offenders.

Construction began in 1886 and remained under construction until 1910 due to funding problems which caused construction delays. The original architect for the design was Levi T. Scofield from Cleveland, he used three architectural styles; Victorian Gothic, Richardsonian Romanesque and Queen Anne. Levi T. Scofield designed the reformatory with these unique styles to help encourage inmates to be reborn back into their spiritual lives.

The creation and construction of the entire building was entrusted to well-known architect F.F. Schnitzer, whose name also appears on the cornerstone, and is recorded as Superintendent in documents found in the cornerstone. During 1891 the name was changed from Intermediate Penitentiary to Ohio State Reformatory. On September 15, 1896 the reformatory opened its doors to its first 150 offenders. These prisoners were brought by train from Columbus and put immediately to work on the prison sewer system and the 25-foot stone wall that surrounded the complex.

Schnitzer was presented with a silver double inkwell by the governor of the state in a lavish ceremony to thank him for his services. The exterior of the building, which is built from brick and concrete, is designed in the Romanesque style giving the frontage a castle-like appearance.

Followers: Beware of Promises Made

I want to say this in the nicest way possible, and I don't (in any way) mean to be offensive (that's never been my style) to anyone.

I enjoy the posts from many "marketers" and "social media experts" here on Google+. I enjoy their posts when they are truly being themselves and sharing their passions with us, because, after all, that's the foundation of G+.

The posts that "get" me sometimes are the ones promising ways of gaining huge amounts of followers and the ones which, tacitly or not, promise to show you the way towards enlightenment, and how to keep your followers forever (read=success).

Look, I'm a simple guy. I literally live at the end of a 1/4 mile County Road in Hicksville, Ohio (yes, snickerers, it IS a real town), surrounded by crops: soy and feed corn. If... more »

The posts that "get" me sometimes are the ones promising ways of gaining huge amounts of followers and the ones which, tacitly or not, promise to show you the way towards enlightenment, and how to keep your followers forever (read=success).

Look, I'm a simple guy. I literally live at the end of a 1/4 mile County Road in Hicksville, Ohio (yes, snickerers, it IS a real town), surrounded by crops: soy and feed corn. If you can find a better poster child for G+, let me know. I started with ZERO followers, and today I have 55,000 or so, with almost 40 million views of my posts! I followed ZERO plans or rules by the marketers: I simply have always been myself, sharing what I love with the world.

Yet I am also marketing our line of pool skimmers at my work about 30 minutes away. But I challenge longtime readers of my posts to recall how often I've promised you ways of gaining more followers, or how best to approach this wonderful Ui we call Google+, from a marketing perspective.

I don't do that, except for very rare occasions, when I want to share with you new products we've developed. What I do write about and share with you (since June of 2011) are posts about things I love. Things that interest me, and excite me, and topics that keep me up into the wee hours of the morning,

I am a transparent person. But ask yourself this: is that person promising you this and that also transparent? Are they of the caliber of a +Dustin W. Stout or +Christine DeGraff or +Mark Traphagen? Maybe not. They are trying to reel you in like a fish, more often than not, and they can be very creative with their fishing techniques.

Trust yourself; trust what your heart is saying when you read posts "promising" you things here, or anywhere for that matter. Listen to your gut, and respond accordingly. That's my only small bit of advice for this month for you: all of us have a good sense of things that sound too good to be true, and I do think that most of us have a good sense of authenticity when we hear it. Listen to your gut...

Pulling this post from the vault because I stumbled upon another video tonight - one where Koko irrefutably shows her softer side with a kitten. Koko has always fascinated me...

Koko and Mister Rogers

Most people have heard of Koko, the gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. When Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off. Love is love :)

The Magic Castle of Hollywood - the most unusual private club in the world.

In all the years I lived in Southern California, I never got to step foot inside The Magic Castle. But I always wanted to. I've loved magic and especially mysteries featuring magicians, my entire life. There was always that aura of mysticism and the unknown surrounding them. Of secrets waiting to be discovered, and of great events put on by the world's best showmen.

Now that I'm living in the Midwest, being the guest of a member magician one day is on my Bucket List. This place oozes coolness!

Has anyone ever visited there? Let's hear your stories!

The Magic Castle of Hollywood - the most unusual private club in the world.

In all the years I lived in Southern California, I never got to step foot inside The Magic Castle. But I always wanted to. I've loved magic and especially mysteries featuring magicians, my entire life. There was always that aura of mysticism and the unknown surrounding them. Of secrets waiting to be discovered, and of great events put on by the world's best showmen.

Now that I'm living in the Midwest, being the guest of a member magician one day is on my Bucket List. This place oozes coolness!

Has anyone ever visited there? Let's hear your stories!

About The Magic Castle

The Magic Castle, located at 7001 Franklin Avenue in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles, California, is a nightclub for magicians and magic enthusiasts, as well as the clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts. It bills itself as "the most unusual private club in the world."

The Magic Castle is a performance venue, restaurant and private club. A typical evening features several magic and sometimes variety arts performances, as well as a full service dining room and several bars in a nightclub atmosphere. A dress code of formal party attire is strictly enforced. Entry is only allowed to members and their guests.

The lobby of the Castle has no visible doors to the interior, and visitors must say a secret phrase to a sculpture of an owl to gain access, exposing the entrance to the club. Nightly, five different magic performances are showcased in three different theaters, with additional performances added in the Peller as well as Hat and Hare Pub and W.C. Fields Bar on weekends.

Magicians perform in several different theaters, including the intimate Close-Up Gallery, a larger Parlour of Prestidigitation, and stage illusions in the Palace of Mystery. Informal performance areas near the five bars give magician members the space for impromptu magic for guests and other patrons. In the music room, a piano is played by invisible "Irma," the Castle's "resident ghost," who takes musical requests.

In addition, magician Misty Lee, the first female staff medium at the Magic Castle, regularly performs Houdini Séances at the castle.

One of the Castle's most famous members was the late Dai Vernon, an expert in sleight of hand, who often sat in the bar area entertaining and teaching. Vernon was the Magician-in-Residence at the Castle for many years, up until his death in 1992.

Other famous magicians who have been regular performers at the Magic Castle include Mark Wilson, Jay Ose, Senator Crandall, Johnny Platt, Kuda Bux, and Billy McComb. Many "celebrity magic hobbyists" have also performed at the Magic Castle, including Cary Grant, Steve Martin, Johnny Carson, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Alexander.

These kind of videos kill me every time, because they could easily be talking about me. People can be ethereally beautiful, but they can also be as cruel as the darkest depths.

I love the Lithuanian translators in this video, and we really do see compassion written all over their faces. 

It truly is sad that FIFTEEN years into the 21st century we still see this. It makes me weep for mankind.

Sherlock

If you've followed my posts for any length of time, you know I've always been enamored with the World's Only Consulting Detective, Sherlock Holmes. Well, in his latest incarnation in BBC's Sherlock, at least.

I'd like to invite you to follow a new page entirely on faith. The page is +The Sherlock Society (https://plus.google.com/b/105972819880728891605/105972819880728891605/posts)

As I have ZERO followers, it's difficult to tag it in, ... yet. There will be a complete story later of the work I've put into my love of Sherlock for other pages, but for now:

Would you do me the honor of giving me blind faith and knowing that I honestly am an Über fan of Sherlock?

STS-1: The Beginning of the Space Shuttle Program

How did I miss this yesterday? Grr. This was the day it all began!

Watch this in 1080p HD! It's LOUD and you'll feel like you were there! I still get chills hearing that noise!

On April 12, 1981, the space shuttle orbiter Columbia became the first shuttle to orbit the Earth. In this gorgeous time exposure, flood lights play on the Columbia and service structures (left) as it rests atop Complex 39's Pad A at Kennedy Space Center in preparation for first launch.

The First TV Remote Control Came Out in 1955

Would that have been your guess? I would have thought later, but I'd be wrong. U.S. The world’s first television remote control was the wireless “Flash-Matic” invented by Zenith engineer Eugene Polley in 1955.

The picture shows what looks like a soda gun for bars (perfect given the picture on the screen)  but it's actually the remote.

His 1955 invention, marketed as the Flash-Matic, used visible light to remotely control a television outfitted with four photo cells in the cabinet at the corners of the screen. Aiming the pistol-shaped control at an individual photocell could turn the receiver on and off, mute the sound and change the channel up or down. Polley also worked on the push-button car radio and contributed to the development of video disks.

Polley's career at Zenith included positions as a product engineer and mechanical engineer. Polley later managed its Video Recording Group, then its Advanced Mechanical Design Group; he eventually became Assistant Division Chief for Zenith's Mechanical Engineering Group. He retired after a 47-year career in which he earned 18 U.S. patents.

Game of Thrones: Great House Banners

Are you ready for the fifth season? It's starting this Sunday!

Look, some shows just pull you into a new world and you become an instant fan. GoT is that sort of show. I recently watched a behind-the-scenes special on HBO and the logistics of filming on multiple continents is incredible. It's astonishing how much effort and work is put into the production of this show -- and it shows.

This series is all about quality, and story, and every week, the story lines bring you back into the fold the following week. Everything about this show screams "longevity" and "quality" and it is worth watching.

Cool side note: I saw one of my previous posts on G+ ranked higher than Wikipedia in the Google search. Made my day!

Cool side note: I saw one of my previous posts on G+ ranked higher than Wikipedia in the Google search. Made my day!

Question: Which Great House do you most closely identify with? Which House keeps you jazzed each and every week?

The Great Houses

House Arryn, rulers of the Vale of Arryn from the castle of the Eyrie.

House Baratheon, the Seven Kingdoms royal house, currently divided into two main branches:

House Baratheon of King's Landing, rulers of the Crownlands from the castle of the Red Keep in King's Landing, and the de facto royal house.

House Baratheon of Dragonstone, rulers of the Stormlands from the castle of Dragonstone, claiming the Iron Throne.

House Bolton, rulers of the North from the castle of the Dreadfort.

House Frey, rulers of the Riverlands from the castle of Riverrun.

House Greyjoy, rulers of the Iron Islands from the castle of Pyke.

House Lannister, rulers of the Westerlands from the castle of Casterly Rock.

House Martell, rulers of Dorne from the castle of Sunspear.

House Tyrell, rulers of the Reach from the castle of Highgarden.



Or maybe you identify with an Exiled Great House...

House Stark, the former rulers of the North, ruling from the now sacked castle of Winterfell until the Red Wedding. The remaining Starks are scattered.

House Targaryen, the former royal house, currently in exile following Robert's Rebellion.

House Tully, the former rulers of the Riverlands, ruling from Riverrun, until the Red Wedding.

8-Track Challenge

Want to have some fun with millennials (or your kids)? Ask them what this is. I'd be curious to know what sort of responses we get. It's interesting how history vanishes, and how pockets of knowledge are not handed down generation to generation. But maybe not so now, given the "Core" knowledge taught today. In any case, see what they say about this!

Conquest of Space Beer Stein

I stumbled on this tonight, and as a #spacegeek knew I had to immediately find this,. So cool! It also triggered memories of when I was a kid. I remember seeing these amazingly ornate, huge beer steins that my Uncle Joe must've sent back from Germany to the USA during WWWII. They were in my grandmother's house, and they are still strong in my mind.

But this stein is something I would salivate over, for my space collection. Take my money (and it wasn't expensive!)

The Sleep Poll

For as far back as I can remember, I've always needed some sort of loud noise to lull me to sleep. Like a loud fan, or a sound machine with rain etc. How about you? Do you need noise to go to sleep, or does it just come naturally to you?

Bonus question for those commenting: we need a fan and COLD usually to sleep. In the dead of midwest winters, we'll either have windows open, or the room is already cold enough to almost see your breath. How is it with you? What are your OPTIMAL SLEEP CONDITIONS?

Live Bacteria in Petri Dishes

Today’s “WOW” moment was inspired by artist Klari Reis. Reis had an ongoing project called The Daily Dish 2013. Every day she posted pictures of her stunning hand-painted petri dishes which resembled live bacteria samples. The colors and textures were so vibrant and realistic that it was hard to believe they were not actual photographs of bacteria. No two look alike, which is even more mind-boggling as to how she comes up with so many variations.

If you are impressed by The Daily Dish, check out Kari’s other projects: 99 Bottles of Art and The Daily Dish 2009.

Robert E. Lee Surrendered On April 9, 1865 and ended The American Civil War 150 Years Ago Today!

Ultimate cost: The war produced about 1,030,000 casualties (3% of the population), including about 620,000 soldier deaths—two-thirds by disease, and 50,000 civilians. Binghamton University historian J. David Hacker believes the number of soldier deaths was approximately 750,000, 20% higher than traditionally estimated, and possibly as high as 850,000. The war accounted for roughly as many American deaths as all American deaths in other U.S. wars combined.

Robert E. Lee Surrendered On April 9, 1865 and ended The American Civil War 150 Years Ago Today!

Ultimate cost: The war produced about 1,030,000 casualties (3% of the population), including about 620,000 soldier deaths—two-thirds by disease, and 50,000 civilians. Binghamton University historian J. David Hacker believes the number of soldier deaths was approximately 750,000, 20% higher than traditionally estimated, and possibly as high as 850,000. The war accounted for roughly as many American deaths as all American deaths in other U.S. wars combined.

The Surrender

At Appomattox, Virginia, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrenders his 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the American Civil War. Forced to abandon the Confederate capital of Richmond, blocked from joining the surviving Confederate force in North Carolina, and harassed constantly by Union cavalry, Lee had no other option.

In retreating from the Union army’s Appomattox Campaign, the Army of Northern Virginia had stumbled through the Virginia countryside stripped of food and supplies. At one point, Union cavalry forces under General Philip Sheridan had actually outrun Lee’s army, blocking their retreat and taking 6,000 prisoners at Sayler’s Creek. Desertions were mounting daily, and by April 8 the Confederates were surrounded with no possibility of escape. On April 9, Lee sent a message to Grant announcing his willingness to surrender. The two generals met in the parlor of the Wilmer McLean home at one o’clock in the afternoon.

Lee and Grant, both holding the highest rank in their respective armies, had known each other slightly during the Mexican War and exchanged awkward personal inquiries. Characteristically, Grant arrived in his muddy field uniform while Lee had turned out in full dress attire, complete with sash and sword. Lee asked for the terms, and Grant hurriedly wrote them out. All officers and men were to be pardoned, and they would be sent home with their private property–most important, the horses, which could be used for a late spring planting. Officers would keep their side arms, and Lee’s starving men would be given Union rations.

Shushing a band that had begun to play in celebration, General Grant told his officers, “The war is over. The Rebels are our countrymen again.”

Although scattered resistance continued for several weeks, for all practical purposes the Civil War had come to an end.

Dingle, Ireland, or What Is Your Most Remote Trip?

What's the most remote spot you've visited on the planet?

I mean "remote" in the sense of either being very far removed from your everyday life, or actually the most remote location by distance from your home. For me, the Dingle Peninsula was reached by starting off in Prague, drinking many bears, finding a partner in crime, and taking trains to La Havre, France.

Then, we caught a 24 hour Ferry ride over to Cork, Ireland. Then, we hitchhiked across Ireland all the way to the westernmost point in Europe and settled in for a month. It was a grand adventure, and the most "remote" location I have visited.

Where were your adventures, and who will hold the distinction of traveling the farthest, or taking a trip that was very much removed from their normal life?

Star Wars R2-D2 USB Car Charger

I have got to get me one of these! The R2-D2 USB Car Charger from ThinkGeek is the perfect travel companion for people who need to stay connected while driving. 

This is an officially licensed piece of Star Wars  merchandise that is a must-have for Jedi Knights who grew up fighting light-saber battles. R2-D2 fits in nicely next to you on the car cup holder, and gets his power from the cigarette lighter socket. He has two USB ports, so that you can charge your smartphone and tablet (or two smartphones/tablets) at the same time.

The USB ports are on R2-D2’s front panel, below his light-up eye and rotating head. ThinkGeek says he goes “bloop bloop bleep,” which could mean something nasty or he may just be thanking you for using his USB ports.

South Pacific Premiered on Broadway On This Day in 1949

'South Pacific' is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan. The work premiered in 1949 on Broadway and was an immediate hit, running for 1,925 performances.

The story is based on James A. Michener's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book Tales of the South Pacific, combining elements of several of the stories. Rodgers and Hammerstein believed that they could write a musical based on Michener's work that would be financially successful and, at the same time, would send a strong progressive message on racism.

The plot centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race... more »

South Pacific Premiered on Broadway On This Day in 1949

'South Pacific' is a musical composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan. The work premiered in 1949 on Broadway and was an immediate hit, running for 1,925 performances.

The story is based on James A. Michener's Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 book Tales of the South Pacific, combining elements of several of the stories. Rodgers and Hammerstein believed that they could write a musical based on Michener's work that would be financially successful and, at the same time, would send a strong progressive message on racism.

The plot centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race children. A secondary romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, explores his fears of the social consequences should he marry his Asian sweetheart. The issue of racial prejudice is candidly explored throughout the musical, most controversially in the lieutenant's song, "You've Got to Be Carefully Taught". Supporting characters, including a comic petty officer and the Tonkinese girl's mother, help to tie the stories together. Because he lacked military knowledge, Hammerstein had difficulty writing that part of the script; the director of the original production, Logan, assisted him and received credit as co-writer of the book.

The original Broadway production enjoyed immense critical and box-office success, became the second-longest running Broadway musical to that point (behind Rodgers and Hammerstein's earlier Oklahoma!), and has remained popular ever since. After they signed Ezio Pinza and Mary Martin as the leads, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote several of the songs with the particular talents of their stars in mind. The piece won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1950. Especially in the Southern U.S., its racial theme provoked controversy, for which its authors were unapologetic. Several of its songs, including "Bali Ha'i", "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair", "Some Enchanted Evening", "There Is Nothing Like a Dame", "Happy Talk", "Younger Than Springtime" and "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy", have become popular standards.

The production won ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Libretto, and it is the only musical production to win Tony Awards in all four acting categories. Its original cast album was the bestselling record of the 1940s, and other recordings of the show have also been popular. The show has enjoyed many successful revivals and tours, spawning a 1958 film and television adaptations. The 2008 Broadway revival was a critical success, ran for 996 performances and won seven Tonys, including Best Musical Revival.

Game Of Thrones  Built "World's Largest Fire-Breathing Crane" For Drogon

This year on Game of Thrones, the dragons are bigger and nastier — so the VFX crew bringing them to life had to come up with two new methods for portraying Drogon, the biggest of the bunch. Including "the world's largest fire-breathing crane."

TV Insider has a great feature about the VFX behind Drogon in season five of Game of Thrones. Including this great quote from VFX supervisor Joe Bauer:

"Drogon is twice the size he was last year. He's about 40 feet long and 20 percent bigger than the other two dragons. He's also the alpha, so his way goes. He's still affectionate with Dany, but he's got his own mind and needs her less, just like any child growing up... Drogon gets to perform more this year than ever, and have more complexin... more »

Game Of Thrones  Built "World's Largest Fire-Breathing Crane" For Drogon

This year on Game of Thrones, the dragons are bigger and nastier — so the VFX crew bringing them to life had to come up with two new methods for portraying Drogon, the biggest of the bunch. Including "the world's largest fire-breathing crane."

TV Insider has a great feature about the VFX behind Drogon in season five of Game of Thrones. Including this great quote from VFX supervisor Joe Bauer:

"Drogon is twice the size he was last year. He's about 40 feet long and 20 percent bigger than the other two dragons. He's also the alpha, so his way goes. He's still affectionate with Dany, but he's got his own mind and needs her less, just like any child growing up... Drogon gets to perform more this year than ever, and have more complex interactions with Dany."

To create Drogon's movements, they started with a "Technodolly," which is a 15-foot crane usually used to hold a camera on its telescopic arm — but instead, they put a flamethrower on the end of it. "Standing 50 feet away from the dragon fire, you could get a nice tan," said producer D.B. Weiss to TV Insider.

Over that, they sketched the fine details of Drogon's movements digitally — and this year, he's based on Komodo dragons, iguanas, horned lizards, and crocodiles. His movements are based on eagles and bats, and the way he takes off is based on pelicans. Meanwhile, the VFX team also used a Simulcam system, so you can see by looking at the monitor where Drogon would be in the final shot, and "the scene could be framed properly," says VFX producer Steve Kullback.

This is all a huge upgrade from previous years — in season one, dragon balls were tennis balls on sticks. In season two, they were stuffed dragons, or maquettes, on her shoulders. Then they were soccer balls on 30-foot poles.

Eric Orchard Assaulted by the Canadian Police & Is In The Hospital

I never thought I'd type a headline like that. Eric is the gentlest family man I know and I've enjoyed our convos here since Day 1. This is terrible news. You can follow what happened and his progress on Twitter under his moniker @inkybat

"Hey everyone. I'm doing well. Spending some time in the hospital. Here's a drawing I did in my hospital bed. "

"He went to put a hand on me and I backed up...quickly escalated to threatening to shoot me."

He entered the hospital on March 30th and he's still there, so that should tell you something about the severity of his injuries.

Wish him well here and let's some him some great vibes. He's a terrific comic artist and illustrator and he deserves the best!

The Roman Dodecahedron Mystery

Roman Dodecahedron objects have been found all over Europe – but the mystery continues about their purpose and use. About the only thing that archaeologists have done – is name the objects. They date to around the 2nd or 3rd AD century.

It isn’t often that an entire class of artifacts completely stumps historians, archaeologists and anthropologists regarding their impact and possible purpose. A Roman dodecahedron is one such genre which has largely remained a mystery. A small hollow object with twelve flat pentagonal faces, each hosting a circular hole of varying diameter, perfectly at its center – the dodecahedron has a hollowed-out center and is tentatively dated back to 2nd and 3rd centuries CE.

The items have been recovered across Europe in regions as diverse as Wales, Hungary, France and Germany. The geometric precision has led some to believe it had some scientific use like astronomy and distance estimation while others theorized decorative purposes like candle holders (unlikely in the era of oil lamps). Regardless, these remain an important discovery with little understanding.

What do you think?

Old Hollywood & My Endless Love of the Movies

It drives my partner crazy. Always. On any given weekend, I'll have marathon sessions of watching old and new movies. I've always been a film buff (as an amateur screenwriter) and I can watch endless films, in whole or in part. Again, it drives him crazy. That's just me, as a massive lover of cinema.

So far this weekend, I watched Young Sherlock Holmes in its entirety, as well as Jersey Boys , The Omen (new version), and Training Day. I also watched Sin City all the way through again. I'm very mercurial, and I'm an avid channel surfer, so I tend to flip around until I find a movie I want to watch for the first time, or again.

So - looking at FAVORITES - what are your favorites for these decades? Films you are THRILLED to recommend to others?

Jesus Christ Superstar - a Rock Opera by Andrew Lloyd Weber - 1973

Was anyone else raised on Jesus Christ Superstar? My family lived in the Washington, D.C. area (Gaithersburg, Maryland, outside the beltway) and I vividly remember my parents going in to see JCS at The Kennedy Center in the early 70s, and playing this album in the house all the time afterwards.

Does this music do anything for anyone else? I still love this to this day.___This music always comes to my mind each Easter. It's one of those albums that stick with you your entire life.

Photographers Create Meticulously Faithful Dioramas of Iconic Photos

It all started with a joke—a rather ironic challenge, if you will, to recreate the world’s most expensive photograph: Andreas Gursky’s Rhein II. Because for commercial photographers Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger, that meant tolling away in their spare time when money wasn’t coming in to recreate a photograph that had just sold for $4.3 million.

This was the beginning of Ikonen, an ambitious project to meticulously recreate iconic historical scenes in miniature. The ongoing project includes immediately recognizable shots—the Wright Brothers taking flight, the Lock Ness Monster poking its head out, “Tank Man” halting tanks during the Tiananmen Square protests—because the images have been seared into our collective memory.

This was the beginning of Ikonen, an ambitious project to meticulously recreate iconic historical scenes in miniature. The ongoing project includes immediately recognizable shots—the Wright Brothers taking flight, the Lock Ness Monster poking its head out, “Tank Man” halting tanks during the Tiananmen Square protests—because the images have been seared into our collective memory.

“Every field has its icons, guiding stars, which reflect the spirit of time in form, media and content,” says the photographers. And when something is photographed, it has a way of transcending time rather than becoming isolated. Historical symbolism is fluid and our perception of it can change the same way history can.

This, perhaps, is why Cortis and Sonderegger pull away from their miniature scene at the very end, revealing what each photograph actually is: paper, cotton balls, plastic and plenty of their own spare time. Photos shared with permission from the artists. (via Wired)

Oscar Wilde Talking About Easter

#oscarwilde   #eastersunday  

Easter Day by Oscar Wilde - 1881 - Poetry for the Sunday Holiday

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900). Poems. 1881.

Easter Day

THE silver trumpets rang across the Dome:
The people knelt upon the ground with awe:
And borne upon the necks of men I saw,
Like some great God, the Holy Lord of Rome.
Priest-like, he wore a robe more white than foam,
And, king-like, swathed himself in royal red,
Three crowns of gold rose high upon his head:
In splendour and in light the Pope passed home.
My heart stole back across wide wastes of years
To One who wandered by a lonely sea,
And sought in vain for any place of rest:
“Foxes have holes, and every bird its nest,
I, only I, must wander wearily,
And bruise my feet, and drink wine salt with tears.”

Easter eggs in the traditional Sorbian. Photograph: Norbert Millauer / AFP / Getty

Saturn V Rocket

The Saturn V (spoken as "Saturn five") was an American human-rated expendable rocket used by NASA between 1966 and 1973. The three-stage liquid-fueled launch vehicle was developed to support the Apollo program for human exploration of the Moon, and was later used to launch Skylab, the first American space station.

The Saturn V was launched 13 times from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida with no loss of crew or payload. The Saturn V remains the tallest, heaviest, and most powerful rocket ever brought to operational status and still holds records for the heaviest payload launched and largest payload capacity to low Earth orbit (LEO) of 118,000 kilograms (260,000 lb).

The largest production model of the Saturn family of rockets, the Saturn V was designed under the direction of Wernher von Braun and Arthur Rudolph at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, with Boeing, North American Aviation, Douglas Aircraft Company, and IBM as the lead contractors. Von Braun's design was based in part on his work on the Aggregate series of rockets, especially the A-10, A-11, and A-12, in Germany during World War II.

To date, the Saturn V remains the only launch vehicle able to transport human beings beyond low Earth orbit. A total of 24 astronauts were launched to the Moon, three of them twice, in the four years spanning December 1968 through December 1972.

Okay. Everyone has secrets that they may (or may not) want to share. But here, in the relative anonymity of G+(grin), I'm giving you the chance to get it off your chest. Share a secret, just one secret, in any way you like. 

Get it off your chest. Feel better about yourself. Become lighter!

You don't have to use names or give specifics (if you don't want) but what is one secret you would like to totally let loose to the world?

I'll start things off: I'm a bit like Spielberg, with his weekend film binges. I could watch ten films back to back, and I'd be entirely happy. The partner? No way. One is to many. For me? The more the merrier.

So -- what's your secret???

Victorian firefighters masks: mid-1800-WWI. 100 years before Darth Vader / C-3PO in Star Wars.

Hmm. I've always wondered about the unique look of C-3PO. I'm wondering how "unique" it was now. Very interesting.

These two smoke helmets were worn by firefighters carrying out rescues in smoke-logged buildings. The buzz among collectors is that George Lucas’s designers must have found inspiration in these smoke helmets and others like them. In fact, one well-known 19th-century manufacturer was named Vajen-Bader—you could easily get the name Vader from that.

The black leather helmet on the left is labeled “Respirations Apparat” by “G.B.Konic Altona,” was made in Hamburg, Germany, and has the look of an African Dan mask. The brass, three-quarter face mask to its right was made in Paris by J. Mandet. This type of breathingmask had a ... more »

The brass, three-quarter face mask to its right was made in Paris by J. Mandet. This type of breathing mask had a very simple apparatus, allowing only a short range of operation. When used, air would be forced into the helmet through no more than 13 meters of flexible tubing by means of a bellows operated remotely from the outside. Both of these masks have mica lenses to help protect the eyes from heat.

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?

The Steam Locomotive Perambulator

One of Stephan LePodd’s adventuring machines. Over the years Stephan has commissioned various vehicles and contraptions to aid his speculative travels around the planet. From flying platforms to burrowing torpedoes. This slightly egotistical creation is mostly used around the city on high days and holidays.

For the Tarnished Daydreams show.

I re-discovered the source using the amazing TinEye.com. Hot tip: Use this reverse search engine when you have an image but you can't remember where you found it. Tin Eye searched over 2.6364 billion images in 0.990 seconds and gave me what I sought. Yes!

Thomas Dolby ready to begin 2012 tour in 3-seat time-machine trailer...

Thomas Dolby is about to head back on the road again, starting with an appearance at SXSW in Austin. There's only one Florida date, March 18 in Orlando, unless you count a show at Largo. Sadly, in the case Largo is a club in Los Angeles and not the small hamlet in Tampa Bay.

In any case, Dolby won't be traveling alone. He's bringing along perhaps the coolest .... trailer, I guess, for lack of a better term. Here's how he describes it.

"The Time Capsule is a chrome- and brass-plated road trailer that seats three. With handcrafted leather and wood fittings, and complex electrical wiring that could have been designed by Nikola Tesla, it resembles a Jules Verne/HG Wells-inspired time-travel machine. Inside is a high-tech video recording suite that allows a music fan or... more »

"The Time Capsule is a chrome- and brass-plated road trailer that seats three. With handcrafted leather and wood fittings, and complex electrical wiring that could have been designed by Nikola Tesla, it resembles a Jules Verne/HG Wells-inspired time-travel machine. Inside is a high-tech video recording suite that allows a music fan or guest artist to upload a personal video message to the Future. The Time Capsule will be parked in the street outside each venue on Dolby’s month-long North American tour, and in front of select local radio and TV stations. It will capture hundreds of 30-second clips over the course of the tour, assembling them into an online video montage. Fans will be able to walk up and step into the Time Capsule to make their own fully produced and effected digital 30-second video clip. The clips will then be automatically uploaded and viewable on a brand-new YouTube channel along with the individual user’s own Facebook and Twitter pages. The most viewed clips will win prizes."

If you've never seen Dolby in concert, trust me: It's not to be missed. Half science experiment, half trip back in time, half instructional class on new media, it even defies modern mathematics.

But you want to know about the dates. No sweat.

MACHINARIUM - GIBBERING ROBOTS, THE BLACK CAP BROTHERHOOD, FOILED PLOTS, ADVENTURE, AND A MAGNIFICENT WORLD TO PLAY IN.

I knew there was a reason I was attracted to this game, aside from the obvious ones like my addiction to STEAMPUNK and to futuristic sci-fi robots who seize the world kinds of stuff.

It was the artwork that pulled me in.

There was something I couldn't quite put my finger on that seemed familiar. Then it hit me after looking at the design studio site: Amanita Design is based in the Czech Republic. Ahh, now I start to see the Czech sensibilities and styles, after having spent some time there. I now understand why I was pulled into looking at this (aside from the post by +Blaine Hall ). I'm artwork has captured my imagination!

About the Machinarium world:

Machinarium opens with an overview of the eponymous city as a disposal flier launches from its highest tower. The player character, a robot called Josef (named after Josef Čapek, the creator of the word "robot" and brother to Karel Čapek) is dumped on a scrapheap, where he re-assembles himself and sets off for the city. Entering the city, he discovers a plot by the Black Cap Brotherhood, his three thuggish antagonists, to blow up the city's tower.

Bibo

It started as an idea about a lonely robot who sells ice cream. In order to survive in a severe reality, he recreates an imaginary world where he lives every day, like he did during the best time of his life.

This is filled with humanity and love, and loneliness, and it reminds me of the most powerful messages we always saw in Pixar films. Well done!

Spindly Spidery Hand Table Lamp

Radio Guy - Eren Berg Studios - Striking and Bizarre Hand Table Lamp.

Alright, I would have this IMMEDIATELY (as it is, vaguely, very steampunkish in my book). Not sure if The Partner would like it. I can see this on my library desk now. Hmm. :-)

STEAMPUNKR - Astronaut On Mars

You have to admire seeing a pith helmet on Mars. Doesn't get any better than that!

Steampunkish Puppets - The Largest Fully-Functional Traveling Puppets in the World!

I saw many cool things during my trips to Berlin, but not this. Really something!

From 2009, the presentation was called "The Giants Arrive - A Fairy Tale for Berlin" and will no doubt remain in the memory of everyone fortunate enough to see them (estimated to be around 1 million lucky people) for the rest of their lives. The larger giant marionette, stands around 31 feet tall and weighs in at 2.5 tons - seeing it in person is not something you're likely to forget!

You have to see the video! The Little Girl Giant

Also, look at this 2006 page for The Sultans Elephant: http://www.thesultanselephant.com/about/royaldeluxe.php
