They can be from ANY genre or style, any time period. Whatever makes you happy. And shouldn't we have some happiness so we can stick it to those grumpy Mayans?!I'll try to rotate people in all night long, we'll watch videos, have some drinks, share some laughs, and many of us will meet together for the first time. YOU, all of you, have made FNS what it is, and I wanted to share my last night with you! Anyone who follows our page is welcome to join in - and I'll likely be posting to the stream as well throughout.So - I hope you'll join me, and if they have a chance to drop in and say hello, I hope you'll get to meet a few of my co-conspirators, +Roger R.H.

Jessica Northey1,754,285Join +TWANGOUT  Wednesday October 24th starting 5pm PT!American Twangout with Twang Nation, Baron Lane, Joe Whyte, Heather Fay and Ryan Van SickleWe'll be talking about Americana and folk music with +Twang Nation, +Joe Whyte, +HEATHER FAY, +Ryan Van Sickle as well as +Rita Ballou We'll talk about what Americana music is and some performances showing difference styles!A few weeks ago, I wrote about the never-ending debate about the definition of Country Music. As tough as that is, it’s nothing compared to how one defines the term “Americana.” In writing about this topic, I’m going to be (gasp!) honest about my thoughts – as they were when you first started hearing the term to describe a musical genre. There were several artists who had been favorites of the Country genre who no longer found themselves played on mainstream radio. Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris were two examples of this. Crowell had a string of top tens from 1988-1992, but all of a sudden his name disappeared from radio playlists. The same happened to Emmylou Harris following her 1988 top ten “Heartbreak Hill.” Critics of the musical format said it was that Country Music had changed – and gotten more pop and rock influenced. That is true – but, only halfway. If you listen to some of Harris’s post 1992 work, as well as Crowell’s, you’ll find some different sounds and subject matter that they weren’t doing earlier. That’s not saying they weren’t doing great music – but it WAS different than their own music that was played on top-40 Country radio just a few years earlier. So, (at least in my mind), that’s how the Americana format was born– as a place for acts who weren’t getting the commercial reception that they once had.Ok, I know I just offended several of my friends Americana & Folk Music Twangout with Twang Nation's Baron Lane, Joe Whyte, Heather Fay and Ryan Van Sickle.2012-10-25 02:00:0046

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

Okay, Maybe they're not quite this small (but they feel like it!) We'll be in two 65 seaters flying from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Chicago. Then we fly into Cedar Rapids, Iowa. These "puddle jumpers" are always claustrophobic and cramped but thankfully the flights are short. In any case, keep us in your thoughts! :-)

Undeveloped World War II Film Discovered

Wow. He's seeing images that have been kept buried for over 70 years. The reveal at the end is worth it, for history buffs.

This is cool. It reminds me that I have undeveloped rolls of film from the early 90s in Prague. I keep telling myself that one day I'll develop those. I wonder what treasures I will discover :-)

Every image in The Rescued Film Project at some point, was special for someone. Each frame captured, reflects a moment that was intended to be remembered. The picture was taken, the roll was finished, wound up, and for reasons we can only speculate, was never developed. These moments never made it into photo albums, or framed neatly on walls. We believe that these images deserve to be seen, so that the photographer's personal experiences can be shared. Forever marking their existence in history.

Alien, When Movie Sets We're Actually Constructed and not Simply a Slew of CGI Shots

The sets of the Nostromo '​s three decks were each created almost entirely in one piece, with each deck occupying a separate stage and the various rooms connected via corridors. To move around the sets the actors had to navigate through the hallways of the ship, adding to the film's sense of claustrophobia and realism.

The sets used large transistors and low-resolution computer screens to give the ship a "used", industrial look and make it appear as though it was constructed of "retrofitted old technology". Ron Cobb created industrial-style symbols and color-coded signs for various areas and aspects of the ship.

Alien, When Movie Sets We're Actually Constructed and not Simply a Slew of CGI Shots

The sets of the Nostromo '​s three decks were each created almost entirely in one piece, with each deck occupying a separate stage and the various rooms connected via corridors. To move around the sets the actors had to navigate through the hallways of the ship, adding to the film's sense of claustrophobia and realism.

The sets used large transistors and low-resolution computer screens to give the ship a "used", industrial look and make it appear as though it was constructed of "retrofitted old technology". Ron Cobb created industrial-style symbols and color-coded signs for various areas and aspects of the ship.

The company that owns the Nostromo is not named in the film, and is referred to by the characters as "the company". However, the name and logo of "Weylan-Yutani" appears on several set pieces and props such as computer monitors and beer cans. Cobb created the name to imply a business alliance between Britain and Japan, deriving "Weylan" from the British Leyland Motor Corporation and "Yutani" from the name of his Japanese neighbor. The 1986 sequel Aliens named the company as "Weyland-Yutani", and it has remained a central aspect of the film franchise.

Art Director Roger Christian used scrap metal and parts to create set pieces and props to save money, a technique he employed while working on Star Wars.  Some of the Nostromo's corridors were created from portions of scrapped bomber aircraft, and a mirror was used to create the illusion of longer corridors in the below-deck area. Special effects supervisors Brian Johnson and Nick Allder made many of the set pieces and props function, including moving chairs, computer monitors, motion trackers, and flamethrowers.

H. R. Giger designed and worked on all of the alien aspects of the film, which he designed to appear organic and biomechanical in contrast to the industrial look of the Nostromo and its human elements. For the interior of the derelict spacecraft and egg chamber he used dried bones together with plaster to sculpt much of the scenery and elements.

Circle Monsters

This was one of my Top-3 favorite posts that I've written here on G+.

I think it should be required reading for Goobies (Newbies) +Jaana Nyström penned that term, as well as Old Timers and #Googlers  (but of course, I'm biased). I think I'm almost ready to write the next ten rules as an add-on for this. Soon, yes, soon.

It's one of those  #longreads  so give yourself some time, if you didn't see this back in 2013...

The Circle Monsters, and How To Be a Good Google+ Citizen

Art by Aggie Cheung

Circles have been on my mind for some time now, and I've been giving my circle management some deep thought. It seems like we are all constantly bombarded with a significant amount of noise from our circles, and often outside of our circles. By noise, I mean to say this: Google+ moves fast. The stream can move fast (depending on how often you click that little blue box). With so many things being posted and messages swirling around us, it can feel very much like a loud carnival barker trying to get your attention on many days. Other days it can be relatively quiet.

For newcomers, this must be overwhelming, and sometimes confusing. I know many greater men and women have posted about this, and it's been discussed to infinity, but I think there are some important fundamentals that all of us can keep in mind as we look at circle management and how we interact on this wonderful UI. With that in mind, I thought I'd share with you my

11 Rules For Thriving on Google+ and How to Avoid  the Circle Monsters

These are rules that I've always had in the back of my mind, but likely not too far back as I have always subscribed to them since I started here over two years ago. See if any of these resonate with you!

1. Stay true to yourself.

I write about topics that interest me, and about my passions. I set up pages like +Helping Others because that's true to who I am. I have always been behind helping other people in any and all ways. But if that's not you, if you're writing about something cool just for the sake of writing about it, or getting noticed (or circled) by others - you're doing yourself a disservice.

If I see a post by you, and I know that that topic interests you in a genuine way, you will remain in my circles. But far more often lately I see questionable posts that really make me pause. I give everyone second and third chances. When I see you chronically doing this - for attention or whatever reason, I'd say your days are numbered for being in my circles. At that point, I consider you a "Circle Monster" and I start looking for ways to defeat the monster. Look, be yourself and let us see the things you care about, and we might start caring, too. And, you'll never be considered a Circle Monster!

2. Make circle shares meaningful.

I can count on one hand the circle shares I initiated over two years here. I invested a good amount of time in them, with interacting, and engaging with everyone, and I made damn sure they're people worth knowing about. If I didn't personally do that, they came highly recommended to me. Right now, I see a decreased value in many of these #circlesharing  posts. I don't see the work that went (or should have) into them.

Many feel like "look at me" posts (not all, no blanket statements being made) and I can't do those (See Rule #1). Now and then, yes, I'll do a share for other people but I will always take a hard look at who is in those circles. Sometimes, I'm added to some really cool shared circles. I might feel obligated to tell people about those as I am grateful for the inclusion, but those are few and far between. If I share a circle with you, you'll know it, and you will know why I am doing so, in very clear language. And my circle share will never simply be a "look at me circle."

3. Give credit where credit is due. Always.

Ah, this one bugs me to no end sometimes. If you love a post written by anyone other than you, credit should be given to them! Give them a 'hat tip;' h/t is how that looks. Plustag their name and let the world know they created that content. If you're re-sharing, that's taken care of as they will be shown as the original poster ( a h/t is still nice, though). But if you're starting a new post of your own, liberally mention them and indicate that you admired their work, and now you're posting your take on things.

So many people fail to give any sort of credit where it's due (and I'm guilty of forgetting this often as well, especially with images). But it's important, and it should be business as usual. Take a moment and find out who created that (or wrote that) and tag them, like this: +Sean Cowen wrote this amazing piece on circle monsters, and here's what i think. It's a good habit to get into doing this, and if you want to see where it's abused most often, you only need to glance at the "What's Hot" tab on any given day. There are many Circle Monsters lurking there!

4. Engagement is the heart of our experiences on Google+.

How you respond and communicate on Google+ is what separates the men from the boys, and the women from the girls. Obviously the degree to which you choose to engage with others here is up to you and your personal tastes. But actively engaging with people - leaving comments, adding a +1 to their posts, or resharing their posts is truly what makes Google+ work best. Being a wallflower, or lurking in the shadows is okay sometimes, but making a habit out of it leaves me far less inclined to interact with you.

And I want to interact with you. I do! Because I love Google+. But tough love is needed sometimes when you hijack my posts and start getting all wacky. Engage, but for Pete's sake - please stay ON TOPIC in my posts. Thinking outside the box or tangentially connecting your thoughts to my post is perfectly fine. Throwing your religious views or political opinions onto my post about a chicken casserole is not. Do that and you'll be a Circle Monster faster than you can say blocked.

+Dustin W. Stout and +Mike Allton had a great talk today about this word "engagement" and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them interact and enagage with each other. I think they mentioned looking for a different word than the overused engagement. Whoever finds that word, let me know!

5. Be respectful, and stand your ground when necessary.

Look, there is a sea of negativity out there, whether we're talking about politics or religion, gay rights or women's rights, or a thousand other "hot button" topics. It exists. We all have our own opinions and views. We can't help that; we're human. But ask yourself this: is there any value to be gained from belittling someone else's views? Or making them feel inferior? Is that the way you truly believe is the best way to state your views? I see it daily within our community, and I say there's no room for it (see, that's my opinion. I didn't have to use all caps, or cursing to state my point).

Having a lively discussion is good (and healthy). Talking about issues, and not over or around them, is good. Far too often, hate speech and misogyny, misanthropy and complete meltdown-style anger dominate some posts in the stream. And that is not respectful. That shows you missed some sort of guidance growing up, or that you were raised by wolves. Human beings can have civil discourse - but too many people cross that line on Google+ and when they do, many of us have taken to standing our ground ( I see +Carter Gibson having to do this often with gay rights issues and I've seen him and +Yonatan Zunger sometimes facing that with posts that have any whiff of religion). If you have to report and block someone, do it. I'm not one to then publicly ridicule someone for their transgressions, but now and then, if the words and actions of that Circle Monster are so egregious, I may do do. Condemnation by the community is warranted on occasion, but never in a matter-of-fact way. Really, so much of who we are and what we do on G+ comes down to respect.

6. Know that what you publicly post will be there forever.

Somewhere, in some archive, a researcher living in 2295 will "open" a database of posts from Google+ and will be reading your publicly posted words. What you write today and tomorrow within this user interface will be seen by your Great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren. It's a powerful thought to keep in mind. What we write about here, and how we write it (or say it in videos) will be part of The Historical Record. Forever. Words matter. How you state those words in your posts, matters. (see Rule #5 and ask yourself if that' the sort of legacy you want your future family members to see). For some who have deviated from what I talked about in Rule #5, this is going to be a sobering thought for you. Sure, you might delete your own posts where you lose your mind now and then, but what you wrote on other people's posts? It's now part of the future. Words matter.

7. Give encouragement frequently and widely on Google+.

I started my +Helping Others page with a single mission in mind - "Helping Others by spreading the word, one post at a time." My focus on G+ has been to share cool things, post about my interests and passions, and really, to make other people aware of incredible people I've met here. From the beginning, I've been a massive supporter of Independent Artists here - people like +Cliff Roth +byron rempel +Ryan Van Sickle +HEATHER FAY +Aaron Wood +Carolyn Curtis +eric orchard +Paul Stickland (how could I forget?!)   the illustrious +Daria Musk +Ashlan Nathens and on and on and on. That's what I do - that's who I am (see Rule #1). I'm passionate about music and the arts and I want the world to see that.

I consider it "good form" to talk about artists and creators here, and more so, I consider it a rule I live by. Creativity thrives when encouragement enters the room. It grows, and develops, and becomes something truly magical. I like that. I like others to see the great artists I've engaged with, and have grown to love. That encouragement is important. To me, and to them. It truly costs you nothing to live this way on this UI. Being supportive of others and encouraging their efforts yields great rewards, trust me. I have made some of the best friendships of my life living this way on G+, and I encourage you (see how I slid that in :-)) to do the same. Don't be shy. When you get to know a great artist, or wordsmith, musician or thinker, marketing expert or film fanatic - tell the world!

8. Show us the "real" you and not what you think we want to see.

I see this so very often here. It's very easy to hide behind an online persona. Yes, it can be tempting to be that Anonymous person now and then; or to be that person maybe you think others want you to be. But ultimately, a price is paid for that. You're breaking Rule #1 right off the bat. Then, you're really living a  life of illusion. What we see is not what we get, not really.

I can't advocate that being good for anyone. I see this most often when I know a person to be one way, then I meet them in a #HIRL  or in  #hangouts   and I end up scratching my head. "Who was that?" I always end up asking myself. "That wasn't the person I came to know over hundreds of posts." When I do see that, I always feel that someone is being disingenuous in some way at the very least. It gives me pause, and my fingers start twitching, thinking about moving that person into my league of Circle Monsters. I might not want to do that, but this is a pretty strong "deal-breaker" for me. Really, just show me the real you, warts and all. I can deal  with them! :-)

9. Be a good teacher (and a Cop) on Google+.

This goes hand-in-hand a bit with Rule #7, but it goes further. All of us are presented opportunities almost daily with situations and requests where we can choose to be a teacher, or not. Yes, we have that choice, and it is not a requirement for being a good citizen within the Google+ community, but maybe it should be. I believe teachers have a noble calling, and good ones never leave our memories. I also believe that if you have some knowledge that can help others, how wonderful it would be if you shared that.

Do I believe that you have to jump into every request or post and weigh in with help and advice? Of course not. But can we all, now and then, make an effort to do that as a natural part of our shared experience here? I think so. I'm cognizant of the fact that every single day here on Google+, new people are coming on board. If I take a moment or two to offer advice or guidance, I consider that akin to a "duty" as someone who's been here from the beginning. Yes, it may sound corny, but as often as I can, I'll "Ask not what Google+ can do for me, but what I can do for Google+.) I choose to live that way. In no way do I say that everyone should do the same, but if an opportunity arises, ask yourself if someone else helped you along the way on your journeys here. Think about it.

As to being a Cop, I DO consider that a duty all of us share (See Rule #5). I'm the textbook definition of a Libra; when I see hate speech and injustice, I admit it, my "spider senses" get all tingly. No, I'm not one to try to ever humiliate anyone, but yes, I have used (and will continue) to use the block and report button. This is our land - this is our community and if you come into my community and cause trouble, I'm pulling out my word shotgun. End of story. 

10. Never be afraid to show your enthusiasm.

Whether we're talking about a post or topic, a movie or the latest YouTube sensation - or ANYTHING for that matter - show us your enthusiasm! Show us loudly and proudly! That's why we're here in large measure - to connect with people who share our passions. I say BE BOLD and GO FOR IT if you're you're talking about something you love.

Why hide your enthusiasm? Because you think it may offend someone? Who cares - they can always block you (and you're probably better off for i!) I see +matthew rappaport take heat for this often. I see being people offended that he is who is he, and that he wears his enthusiasm on his sleeve. That's utter crap, I'm sorry to say. No one forces you to add ANYONE to your circles, and he has the complete right to always be himself. Asking him to change who he is, or tone down his way of being on Google+ (or anyone for that matter) is tantamount to asking Darth Vader to be a Girl Scout. It reeks of hypocrisy at it's worst, and in my mind it shows that you really don't understand what this UI is really all about. You shouldn't change a thing about you, Rappa. Nobody should (unless they're breaking Rule #8, then fair warning - we're going to call you out on some things.

11. Never let any Circle Monsters (or any roaming monsters for that matter) burden you and your time on Google+.

You are the Master of your own G+ experiences. It's your kingdom, and you have the freedom to shape your own adventure in any way you see fit. You're the key holder, lord of the manor, king of all realms. You're the CEO of your life here - and no one else has the right to take that from you. No one. The only way your grand adventure can be stripped from you, or stolen in small chunks, is if you let it.

Take charge - of your circles, of your reputation, of WHO YOU ARE here. Be upfront and clear across all circles, and within all communities; in all hangouts and with all communication you have here. This is YOUR LIFE I'm talking about. This is your KINGDOM and you can always, always stop CIRCLE MONSTERS from doing their worst with one simple solution: don't give them the power. The power is YOURS. Seize it.

May the force be with you. May you have a grand adventure here as I have, and thanks for reading this to the end. I'll have to come up with a blue ribbon or some special pin for you! :-)

Steampunk Lion by Paula Duță of Timișoara, Romania

I'm always enthralled with the process of art creation. That's why I think I vicariously live through the lives of the artists here.

I've always enjoyed seeing art being made, whether it's watching +Cliff Roth or +byron rempel sketch in hangouts, or looking at works by +Paul Stickland +Aaron Wood +eric orchard or the hundred other artists I've come to know here. The process, the way canvases are arranged and manipulated, the studios - all of it fascinates this amateur art lover.

Goodnight, Plusverse

In the quiet forest behind my barn, this is exactly the sort of view we get of the night sky. No lights for many miles; only the stars above.

This is us living under the milky way, always looking up. Dream well, dream bold, dream as if it's your last (and best) dream ever!

Star Wars Redux

Thinking back to standing in that line on opening day. The line for the first showing must have been a mile long.

For the later generations, you really have no idea how mind blowing Star Wars was. We didn't have blockbusters back then. Well, Jaws was kind of the first blockbuster the year before. But for this sci-fi film, there was no precedent. Every time we saw a preview in the months leading up to the May 25, 1977 release date -- audiences went nuts. As kids, we knew, with every fiber of our being, that we were going to see something spectacular; something we'd never seen before. And we did. 

I remember that first audience in Sacramento, under that big dome. In the first seconds, when the theme music started playing, the whole theater erupted in applause. It was crazy. Honestly, it felt like we were living through history! The applause... more »

The applause again at the end of the movie was deafening, and we did what I think the entire audience did: we went to stand in that long line again to see this otherworldly movie one more time that day. Man, what a day!

In honor of MLK, I'm posting this again for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the States. Monday, January 19, 2015.

#mlk   #martinlutherkingday  

'I Have A Dream' by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity.

But one hundred years later, we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize an appalling condition.

In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check -- a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment and to underestimate the determination of the Negro. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.

Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.

I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor's lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."

About the Show

"The War of the Worlds" is an episode of the American radio drama anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air. It was performed as a Halloween episode of the series on October 30, 1938, and aired over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. Directed and narrated by actor and future filmmaker Orson Welles, the episode was an adaptation of H. G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds (1898). It became famous for causing mass panic, although the extent of this panic is debated.

The first two thirds of the one-hour broadcast were presented as a series of simulated news bulletins, which suggested an actual alien invasion by Martians was currently in progress. Compounding the issue was the fact that the Mercury Theatre on the Air was a sustaining show (it ran without commercial breaks), adding to the program's realism, and that others were primarily listening to Edgar Bergen and only tuned in to the show during a musical interlude, thereby missing the introduction that proved the show was a drama.

In the days following the adaptation, there was widespread outrage in the media. The program's news-bulletin format was described as cruelly deceptive by some newspapers (which had lost advertising revenue to radio) and public figures, leading to an outcry against the perpetrators of the broadcast and calls for regulation by the Federal Communications Commission. Despite these complaints—or perhaps in part because of them—the episode secured Welles's fame as a dramatist.

Black Sails: A Pirate Roller-Coaster Ride of Adventure, Intrigue, Drama, and a Magnificent Palette To Look At

Look, I've been hooked on pirate stories since I was a young lad reading Treasure Island for the first time. I've always loved the sense of adventure and intrigue that goes along with the pirate world. Loved the whole Pirates of the Caribbean series and watched ten minutes of this show when it first aired. Then stopped. It didn't capture my attention then.

Today, I watched eight episodes back-to-back, and while the series does have some flaws, especially with twisted plots and investing time with characters, and caring about them etc..., I jumped right back into this world. The production values are amazing, the sets are glorious, and though the story thread is light sometimes, I found myself being pulled into this world created by Uber-Producer... more »

The production values are amazing, the sets are glorious, and though the story thread is light sometimes, I found myself being pulled into this world created by Uber-Producer Michael Bay. Really, the sets and ships are mind-blowing. 

The Plot of the First Episode

Set roughly two decades before the events of Treasure Island and during the Golden Age of Piracy, the feared Captain Flint brings on a younger crew member as they fight for the survival of New Providence Island. According to the first episode, "In 1715, West Indies, the pirates of New Providence Island threaten maritime trade in the region. The laws of every civilized nation declare them hostis humani generis; enemies of all mankind. In response, the pirates adhere to a doctrine of their own....war against the world."

Real life pirates that are fictionalized in the show include Anne Bonny, Benjamin Hornigold, Jack Rackham, and Charles Vane. The plot focuses on the hunt for the Spanish treasure galleon Urca de Lima.

Those Cheeks! Dizzy Gillespie , Photographed by Herb Ritts

In the 1940s Gillespie, together with Charlie Parker, became a major figure in the development of bebop and modern jazz. He taught and influenced many other musicians, including trumpeters Miles Davis, Jon Faddis, Fats Navarro, Clifford Brown, Arturo Sandoval, Lee Morgan, Chuck Mangione, and balladeer Johnny Hartman.

AllMusic's Scott Yanow wrote, "Dizzy Gillespie's contributions to jazz were huge. One of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time (some would say the best), Gillespie was such a complex player that his contemporaries ended up copying Miles Davis and Fats Navarro instead, and it was not until Jon Faddis's emergence in the 1970s that Dizzy's style was successfully recreated [...] Arguably Gillespie is remembered, by both critics and fans alike, as one of the greatest jazz trumpeters... more »

Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms

I played this song last night as my show ender for +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS and it never fails to move me. It reminds me of beautiful music, and songs with powerful thoughts.

"Brothers In Arms"

These mist-covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged high
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different... more »

And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

The Man In The High Castle

Stunning visuals and production values, exciting cinematography, and a bit like watching a more serious Indiana Jones movie.

I watched this cool new Amazon pilot episode tonight. That would be "The Man in the High Castle," the long-awaited adaptation of the Philip Dick novel of the same name, championed by Ridley Scott.

As did the book, "The Man in the High Castle" imagines the United States just after World War II has been won, this time by the Axis powers. With Germany apparently the only country in possession of atomic firepower, the eastern half of the country is ruled by the Third Reich, the western by Imperial Japan; a swath of border states serves as a "neutral zone."

With Germany apparently the only country in possession of atomic firepower, the eastern half of the country is ruled by the Third Reich, the western by Imperial Japan; a swath of border states serves as a "neutral zone."

It's an upsetting, if provocative premise, smartly adapted by "The X-Files'" Frank Spotnitz and one made glorious by sets and cinematography worthy of a Scott production. In the East, we follow the travails of Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank), who joins the resistance and is tasked with driving a mysterious package across country. In the West, we meet Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos) a young martial arts expert thrust into the underground by her sister and her degenerate-artist lover Frank (Rupert Evans).

As bad as things are, they're about to get worse. Hitler is suffering from Parkinson's, and the only thing his potential successors agree on is that cohabitation with Japan must end, even if it means nuking the West Coast.

Although director David Semel gives the pilot a dreamlike quality, the implications of this alternate history are disturbing, often to the point of distraction. But in a landscape obsessed with post-apocalyptic tales, it does raise the question: How real will we let ourselves get?

The Edgewalk

Poll Question: Would you do this? Or never in this lifetime?

The CN Tower (French: Tour CN) is a 553.33 m-high (1,815.4 ft) tower in Toronto. It remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere.

On August 1, 2011, the CN Tower opened the EdgeWalk, an amusement in which thrill-seekers can walk on and around the roof of the main pod of the tower at 356 m (1,168.0 ft), which is directly above the 360 Restaurant. It is the world's highest full-circle, hands-free walk.

Fragmentary evidence of the lost ancient art of librarian miniaturization, or ... my what big books you have!

Those are late-medieval choir books. Before paper replaced vellum, book production was expensive. Making a copy of the music was a multi-year undertaking involving several skilled professionals (tanners, binders, copyists, etc). The preferred solution was to have one massive book per cathedral that everyone read simultaneously.

That one book needed to be huge so that the singers in the back row of the choir could also see the notes.

Maddy Kettle spotted in the snows of Ohio, and she was intrigued by the looming water tower!

Way back on December 19th, I promised +eric orchard that I'd get a picture of Maddy here in my very small town of Hicksville, Ohio (pop. 3,581). The book came from somewhere in the state and just got here -- and it was worth the wait. It's incredible!

Here are some photos of Grizzly Adams er - me (with my extremely long and white Winter beard), and Maddy together!

She had a blast, though I'm sure she liked the warm Arizona weather better! ha!

Abandoned Villa - An #Urbex Dream Home

I always wonder, when I see a photo like this: what the hell happened? Villa's that have magnificent "bones" and architecture, but then are abandoned. Truly, what's the story here? This is phenomenally beautiful. Why is it abandoned? That's part of the "mystique" of why some of us love #urbanexploration .

That incredible statue still supporting the stairs. Stunning.

Saving Private Ryan

If there is a movie that comes close to what so many of the boys must have experienced in WWII, this is probably it. One day, when we're "surrounded" by a movie and virtually part of that film, maybe we'll get closer. If you have never seen his film, you have to see it one day. The sacrifices the entire world made are evident here, and this particular scene is heart-wrenching.

It's based in part on the true story of the Sullivan Brothers of WWII, and on the Bixby sons of the Civil War. 4:40 into this video kills me every time. Prepare yourself for the opening of the film; I first watched this in a massive theater in Prague and the entire audience was stunned and many people were in shock, some sobbing. I heard it did the same to WWII veterans, It's that powerful.

Prepare yourself for the opening of the film; I first watched this in a massive theater in Prague and the entire audience was stunned and many people were in shock, some sobbing. I heard it did the same to WWII veterans, It's that powerful.

Crash! Bam! Ka-pow!

The live action "Batman" TV series premiered
on this day in 1966. Starring Adam West as the caped crusader
and Burt Ward as his sidekick, Robin, the incredibly campy yet
awesome show only ran for three seasons. Despite this, it
remains one of the most well-known iterations of the DC Comics
character. Today we seem to prefer dark, heavy material, but you
really can't beat the action-comedy of Adam West's Batman.
Unintentionally hilarious or not, we'd still tune in if we
could. Text via HARO

This Is Me.

I was born a Libra, and that's what I'll always be. For my entire life, I have believed in fairness and in equality. Among people, and ideas, and in our daily lives.

I believe in fairness in work and in our social lives, at all levels. That's who I am, and who I have always been. For myself, that will never change. Never.

I invite you to do a little soul-searching and deep-thinking and self reflection, too. See what ideas pop into your mind; see what thoughts keep you up at night!

Guest Host Wanted for +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS January 23, 2015 Show

I'm looking for your recommendations for a host to step-in for a single night and run the show.The studio would be yours!

All my circles and FNS fans know how much I love our page, and how devoted I am to our fans (almost for 3.5 years now). I have to attend my grandmother's funeral in Iowa that day, and I hate to keep pressuring my go-to guys +Roger R.H. King  and +Andrew Coffman or my gal +Sarah Lynne.

I need someone to start posting videos at 10PM Eastern and run the show for about 3-4 hours. They'd need to reply to requests, post comments under the FNS name, and above all - have a good time!

So I thought I'd get your input: who should I ask? Let's tally up some votes here!

I've approached +matthew rappaport and +John Voshell in the past, and hopefully I did the same for +Christine DeGraff, but I forget. Maybe I should ask +HEATHER FAY to have some fun, but again, I don't want this to be a chore for anyone.

Leave comments below for who you'd like to see (other than our usual 12 DJ's) and let's see if I can coerce persuade them to have fun one night. It is work, and it IS fast-paced: I post every five minutes on these nights. Also, I have a LIVE STREAM set up with STREAMUP so you could watch them doing the show as well, if they were up for that! Tell me what you think!

I'm also contemplating the same thing once a month for a FAN NIGHT TAKEOVER. It may not be at our flagship time, but perhaps on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon (which still would be night in many parts of the world). Hmm. What do you think? Want to be a part of the fun, seizing the studio and all that! ha! :-)

Agent Carter

We belatedly watched the pilot tonight and we like this show! I'm a huge fan of the WWII era and the 40s so I instantly loved the setting, and my better half laughed alongside me as well.

Our only drawback is that while we have watched many an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. we haven't seen any of the Marvel films with these characters, so we get a little lost sometimes. But we did understand the connection with Agent Carter, so it was cool. Yes, it's campy but it's a lot of fun, it's filled with action sequences and it was perfect for a Saturday night!

In the wake of losing her love, Steve Rogers, she struggles to find balance between navigating life as a single woman and working at the covert Strategic Scientific Reserve, with administrative duties and tackling secret missions for an old acquaintance, Howard Stark.

Edwin Jarvis, Stark's butler, helps Carter as she risks her life and freedom to complete assignments.

I just shot this quick video of Dave at work dropping a 16lb. bowling ball from 6 feet high right onto our pool net. It didn't flinch! No rips or tears - the screen remain attached perfectly. 

This is our plan all along - to make quality #poolskimmer 's that can stand rigorous wear and tear, and are unlike anything you've ever seen!

Next up: dropping  a bowling ball onto the net from about 10 feet high on a ladder, and raising the net higher off the ground so it will really take a great deal of force. That's next week!

My Own Personal Groundhog Day (and Probably Yours As Well)

Every day I look at my stream now, it's like watching Groundhog Day over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Groundhog Day, and Other Movies I Could (and Have) Watched 100 Times

What movies do you love to death, you know, the ones that you've watched a hundred times. I call them "comfort movies" and they're always perfect for those cold winter nights, or lazy summer afternoons. You know the type of films I'm talking about.

Let's see what kind of list and variety we can come up with...

I probably have hundreds on my list, as I'm an insane film buff, but any of these would quality (giving you some inspiration here...)

Star Wars IV,V,VI
The Fifth Element
Trading Places
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
2012
Dune
Groundhog Day
Any Wes Andersen film
Most Kubrick films
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Raiders of the Lost Ark
It's A Wonderful Life
Citizen Kane
Lawrence of Arabia
WALL-E
The Sting

So - what's on your list?

Your Own Personal Zeppelin

If you build it, they will fly it.

What do you think? If, and that's a big if -- if you had this and it could work, would you fly around in it? What's your comfort level with safety and risk? Hmm, if not sure if I would, but I would like the chance to make the choice.

If you look close, this is a model, but it would be interesting to see a working, full-scale model. More #steampunk  awesomeness!

Light and Curves of a Violin From Within

I feel as if I have shared one of these images before, but they still take the breath away every single time!

While music is oftentimes a purely auditory experience, the eyes and the ears share in musical pleasure in the visually rich print campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra’s upcoming season.

Musical instruments steal the spotlight in the series entitled “Näher an der Klassik”, which translates into “closer to the classic.” Munich-based Andreas Mierswa and Markus Kluska bring their expertise in high-end fashion photography to produce breathtaking macro images of the instruments interiors.

In one image, a heavenly light shines into the f-hole of a violin, illuminating the gentle curves of the instrument’s hollow belly. Audiences are able to share an intimacy with the instruments to which presumably only sage craftsmen and practiced musicians were privy. Characterized by authenticity and marked with timelessness, the beauty of the instruments is captivating and anticipates a standing ovation for opening night

Bumper Cars: Raise Your Hand If You Loved Them As a Kid (Or Still Do As a Big Kid!)

For me and all my friends, we LIVED to go and do the bumper cars on weekends. I know I rode them at early carnivals and fairs but I think I rode them most at Scandia Fun Centers, in the Sacramento area, which also always included rounds of miniature golf and hitting away in the #baseball batting cages.

We loved those times! I'm glad to see this vintage activity is still around for new generations. I saw a photo of #nuns on bumper cars, so I'm sure everyone loves them. ha!

Why Do Some Dreams Take So Long To Be Fulfilled?

This was me as a little kid. Not literally, but a visual of what I dreamed of as a little boy. That boy was me.

Oh man, the dreams I had. My head was always in the stars, and dreaming of space, and cool tech like this. I grew up around the Apollo program with +NASA so little guys like me were addicted to possibilities, and to dream catching. It was our kiddie crack, so to speak. In my class, if you didn't want to be an outcast, you wanted to be an astronaut. (luckily, I did)

Even at that young age, my gut told me that we'd have something like this in my lifetime. I wasn't as sold on flying cars and floating homes like I saw in The Jetsons (or floating cities like we saw in Star Wars. Ahem, Lando).

But I always had faith in our ability to consistently surprise ourselves, and the world. So many moons ago, when I lived abroad, people always commented that Americans always seemed so cheery and happy. I commented that I thought we did have a predisposition towards optimism and manifest destiny. It's what has always driven our sense of exploration and discovery. I told them that I thought it was simply a part of our collective DNA. Maybe so, maybe not -- but it feels that way, to me at least.

Space was where I lived, and where I dreamed, and tech allowed me to pursue those dreams. I was this little boy, watching what we do all the time now as a hangout or video chat. Full circle, my friends. full circle.

A Graphic Guide to Cemetery Symbolism

With the passing of my last grandparent yesterday, I've wondered if any of these symbols might appear on her headstone.

Our family never discussed these sorts of things, but I have discussed last wishes with other Plussers before. I told this to my mother yesterday; if I ever get hit by a bus or I'm struck by lightning, my entire life is spelled out here in my posts. It's all of who I am, the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. Read my posts from beginning to end and you'll know me as well as any Dickens character...

“Return to Sender” Christmas Packages, 1944

This is incredibly moving and sad, and one reason I've remained an amateur WWII historian: to pay my respects to these men who fought for our freedoms.

In New York City, piles of Christmas packages meant for American servicemen who have been listed as missing or killed in action await for “Return to Sender” stamps, 1944. You can see the words “missing” or “deceased” stamped on some of the packages on the bottom of the photograph.

1949 Drive-In Theater in Los Angeles

Seeing images like this always takes me back to watching movies many times at the drive-in's over the years.

It's what we did for family nights out, and later on dates. Who can ever forget the dancing hot dogs and ads at the beginning imploring you to visit the concession stand, and the Intermission films?

Love this and missed it a few days ago from +Piera Coppola. One of my favorite flicks of that year, and typically brilliant Wes Anderson. The video's done in the same style.

#wesanderson   #grandbudapesthotel   #mendls   #chocolate  

Anyone who has seen Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel will know that pastry plays a significant role in the film. Well, one pastry in particular - the 'Courtesan au Chocolat' the signature pastry from the film's fictional Mendl’s Bakery. And now you can learn how to make it - http://goo.gl/hVDmq3

Wes Anderson released a fun  instructional short video breaking down how to bake, fill, glaze, decorate, and assemble the 'Courtesan au Chocolat' a pastry which was created especially for the film by German baker Anemone Müller-Grossmann. It's a stack of three chocolate-filled profiteroles frosted in pastel hues based on the classic French confection called the 'religieuse'.

Nautical Tentacle Porthole Lamp

Insanely cool and perfect for all sea lovin' octopus lovers.

This unique nautical wall lamp is handmade and painted to order. Lifelike and life-sized, it will light up your room as well as spark a conversation. The porthole latch serves as a light switch and the vintage 40 watt Edison bulb is included with the piece. 

The standard light socket will work with any general purpose light bulb; however, a 40 watt bulb is recommended. Each item is hand crafted and made to order. Please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery. Lamp is approx. 18 inches H with bulb.

A Day In the Life of Parenting

I know my brother was often naughty this way, but I was of course an angel. It was our fights more than messiness that drove our parents crazy. There are some classic shots at the link...

Lifestyle photographer Danielle Guenther has spent over two years taking pictures of families and children in their own homes. After one particular session "spiraled out of control," she started making a point to capture the candid moments of chaos that all parents experience.

I Love You, Von!'

This was a hard morning. This picture shows my favourite Aunt Donna, +Donna Cowen on the left, and my grandmother, LaVon Pasker on the right (in a photo from a while ago). I have eleven cousins, and of the twelve of us, I always called my grandmother ... Von. All my other cousins called her Nana. I was the first grandchild, so I suppose it's my prerogative. 

This morning, I said my final goodbye to Von. I'm not sure if she knew who I was. It was one of the most difficult calls I've ever been on. Aunt Donna has been such an amazing person, being there for Nana at the end, and I feel so much love for her knowing what's she has gone through, nursing her Mom at the end.

I was a blithering idiot, and it wasn't my finest moment. I cry at Christmas movies now; hell, I cry at commercials now, due to a medical ailment. Honestly, I was not at all myself today, and that call killed me. I haven't lost a close family member since the 80s, so I have little experience in this area compared to others. All I know is that I don't think my 95 year old Von didn't really knew who I was, and that was the deepest wound of all. 

My grandmother has had her last rites given, and I've gotten to say my goodbyes, but I was nowhere near the person I wanted to be today. I'm  barely holding it together now, writing this. No, that's not true -- I have now officially lost it. Deep, deep sigh. This hurts so much... Sorry - this is one of the deepest pains of my life. i just have no experience in this area...

Update: My sweet Von passed away at 07.40 this morning California time. She's with the angels now...___

The Life of The Beatles: Under The Glare of the Camera

Sometimes you see an old photo and it completely captures your imagination. I'm betting The Beatles are probably the most photographed band ever, and seeing a shot like this reminds me of the intense relationship that existed between John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

What was Paul thinking (or reacting to) in that moment?

3D Printed Exo-Prosthetic Leg Becomes a Customizable Body Part

I'm fascinated by this emerging technology and it's wild to see what's being done with it.

The ‘exo-prosthetic leg’ created by Adam Root, is a 3D printed artificial limb that used modern technologies to fabricate the customizable, intimate, form-taking body part. Developed to resolve the time intensive, costly and tedious current process of adapting a prosthesis to an amputee’s specific anatomy, this design enhances a combination of a 3D scanner, printer and modeling software in order to create a more precise and affordable manufacturing procedure.

Dreaming Big

I posted this the other day at work and it's been in my mind ever since. This is the story of a skateboarder who decided to dream big, and thought, why not have a floating ramp in Lake Tahoe and go for it?!

These stories inspire me, and make me want to #dreambig with my pages, and at work every single day. I am DETERMINED to make our products known to the world. Videos like this really do get my creative juices MOVING!
