The Doors – Love Her Madly

Band: The Doors
Album: The Very Best of The Doors
Release date: 2001
Track number: 15
Genre: Psychedelic Rock
Lyrics:

Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya need her badly
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her madly
Wanna be her daddy
Don’t ya love her face
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
Like she did one thousand times before
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love
All your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Yeah, don’t you love her
Don’t you love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
Yeah, all your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Well, don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly

Alrighty then, all I can say is that I am really feelin this song, especially that line in this song… that line, “wanna be her daddy,” because, well, yes,  omlgjhcita, yes I do.

Madonne.

Strong stuff… strong af.

Kinesin Spring Cleaning

A kinesin protein tugs a vesicle to the tune of Fats Waller’s “Spring Cleaning”. As suggested by /u/JeremyKean on reddit.

http://www.reddit.com/r/educationalgi…

I posted a gif of this a while ago… on one of the other pages, but I cannot recall which one at the moment.

At any rate, this video would appear to be that very same gif but with Fats accompanying instead of nowt.

Which is not a bad deal, eh.

Lots and lots of these things are inside of you—inside every cell of your body—doing thisright this minute!

Don’ worry, be happy—it’s a cell component called a kinesin that keeps the microtubules in our cells tidy.

Here is the Wiki page (I know, I’m sorry)

I love it cuzzit walks like that!

Ah yes… once again our venerable gortex, Knight of Ni and Member, delivers the goods in the beauty of the wonders of space department in his newspost Oh My God, Look at Saturn’s North Pole.

Suchly…

The image was compiled by space enthusiast Jason Major from raw images captured by Cassini this week on its latest ring-grazing orbit.

Major compiled the image from raw data that was posted to Cassini’s image archive yesterday. “If I see something interesting and it also happens to have been captures in visible-light color channels, I assemble a color version in Photoshop to see what the awesome level is,” Major told Gizmodo over Twitter DM. “That vortex pic was a 10.”


At a talk I attended at the American Geophysical Union’s annual conference in San Francisco last December, Hampton University planetary scientist John Blalock reaffirmed that while Saturn’s north polar vortex is indeed blue, the rest of the hexagon is definitely yellow these days.
“When we look from 2012 to 2016, [the] hexagon is maybe a little brighter, but the interior and especially the doughnut region [at the center] looks brighter,” Blalock said, adding later in the talk that the “brightening is consistent with an increase in the production of photochemical haze products in the upper atmosphere.”

Saturn’s Pole is blue and there’s nothing we can do ..dan der dan der dan dan.

Gortex always has the heads up on this sort of thing. For this I thank him.

Ooh baby, how timely can you get… a fabulous R.L. Burnside song played by my Goddess, the Mistress of Blues. Check out her performance. Did you go, ‘Whoa!’?

This is passion, this is power and this is drive. Oooh! Like this fella said on facebook’s Samantha Fish Fans page…

I know I’ve posted this before, but I felt it needed to be posted again. John Richardson captured a piece of Music magic here almost three years ago. I love all that Samantha Fish has recorded have all the albums, watched countless youtube videos, but to me this is her at her raw best. So much passion, energy and drive. Slide blues summed up in ten glorious minutes.

Right on, Ian!

Right?

Yeah Heah!

Enjoy,

There is mischief afoot.

That is Mr Peter Townshend, posing nicely in his home studio way back in the 60s. Look at that stuff!

This pic was kindly posted to Instagram by the fab folks at TapeOp magazine. TapeOp is awesome.

I suppose this might celebrate the start up of my latest attempt at a studio of some at least halfway-decent sort.

Got an impromptu drum track from my dear friend Lynn, who was definitely on the jazz cuz she was gigging the next night, all the way away in Olde Blighty! Which is not unusual at all because her recording studio, Bakehouse Studio and her Wobbly Music musical empire are just up the road. In fact, last night the second EP, Foodbank Robbery, from her latest band, The Johnnie Squizzercrow Experiment, was released via the Senior Sounds project. Get it here eh.

Here is a bit of it.

Focusrite! Yeah they’re the “old” ones but ask me if it’s anything but academic. Seriously, now. Especially in this timeline and in any event, these pieces are nice.

And I can use it with the Thunderbolt 3 laptop as well as the Firewire laptop. I like that a lot as the Thunderbolt interfaces are so very dear these days. It cost $60 to be able to plug it in though. And that with Focusrite providing their half of the connection gratis. This studio does set new standards for low budget, for the time being, and for quite a foreseeable time.

But beyond that hardware lust…

the music making…

that will be the candy.

Must save brain…

obecause Ig, like Eldrad before him…

Must Live!

Not quite like Paulo’s place, eh ? :

 

Ah, yes, you will be among the first to know what happens.

I could not stop watching this. It just ended. Whoa. As a sorta soundman, this is deep passion that just sucked me right in. And I do not regret it. The first sound recording of the air moving, i.e. live, microphonic, of an unknown cornetist blowin for the phonautogram in 1857 (1857!) which was followed three years later by the human voice via a young lady singing Eu Claire de la Lune in 1860.

I was smitten.

You might, I did a little at first, think

 

FIRST SOUNDS: Humanity’s First Recordings of Its Own Voice

DGioTuber

Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville was the first person to record his voice and send it into the future. David Giovannoni recounts how First Sounds discovered and played back these recordings 150 years later.

The vid covers the timeline of their quest to bring to life the unplayable recordings that were made in the decade before Thomas Edison did his thing.

These gentlemen had to hear these sounds. And they not only succeeded, they made history in making history sing.

I warn you, though … it is compelling and it is 55 minutes. At least it was compelling to me!

A Stunning Video of Mars That Took Three Months to Stitch Together—by Hand

This is from Wired magazine via Russ Hudson, who will receive PentaProps™!

IF YOU SHOULD one day find yourself in a spacecraft circling Mars, don’t count on a good view. The Red Planet’s dusty atmosphere will probably obscure any window-seat vistas of its deep valleys and soaring mesas. “The best way to see the planet’s surface would be to take a digital image and enhance it on your computer,” says planetary geologist Alfred McEwen, principle investigator on NASA’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment. He would know: In the past 12 years, the powerful HiRISE camera has snapped 50,000 spectacular, high-resolution stereo images of the Martian terrain from the planet’s orbit, creating anaglyphs that anyone can view in 3D using special glasses. The highly detailed stereograms depict the planet’s surface in remarkable detail—but 3D glasses aren’t always handy, and still images can only convey so much about Mars’ varied topography.

To fully appreciate the Martian landscape, one needs dimension and movement. In the video you see here, Finnish filmmaker Jan Fröjdman transformed HiRISE imagery into a dynamic, three-dimensional, overhead view of the Red Planet—no glasses required.

For Fröjdman, creating the flyover effect was like assembling a puzzle. He began by colorizing the photographs (HiRISE captures images in grayscale). He then identified distinctive features in each of the anaglyphs—craters, canyons, mountains–and matched them between image pairs. To create the panning 3-D effect, he stitched the images together along his reference points and rendered them as frames in a video. “It was a very slow process,” he says.

Read the rest …

I’m lovin’ it!

I want to GO there … and if I can get myself on one of Elon Musk’s upcoming ships I WILL!

Full circle, eh?

Or something like that…

Peace

Johnny Cash – (Ghost) Riders In The Sky (original)

I do not own this but I think it’s a masterpiece and should be common property!
R.I.P. Johnny Cash

lyrics:

An old cowboy went ridin’ out one dark and windy day.
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way.
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,
Plowing through the ragged skies.
And up a cloudy draw.

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel.
Their horns were black and shiney and their hot breath he could feel.
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky.
Oh, he saw the riders comin’ hard,
And he heared their mournful cry…

Chorus:

Yippee-I-Yo…Yippee-I-Yay…
Ghostriders in the sky…

Their faces dark, their eyes were blue their shirts all soaked with sweat.
He’s rindin’ hard to catch that herd but he ain’t caught ’em yet
‘Cause they’ve got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On horses snortin’ fire…
As they ride on hear their cry…

As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
“If you wanna save your soul from hell, or ridin’ on our range
Then cowboy, change your ways today, or with us you will ride
Tryin’ to catch the devil’s herd
Across these endless skies…”

Yippee-I-Yo…Yippe-I-Yay…
Ghostriders in the sky…
Ghostriders in the sky…
Ghostriders in the sky.

(written by: Stan Jones, 1948)

Yes, it IS a masterpiece, the uploader is spot on in that assessment.

And yes, R.I.P., my dear sweet hero.

I am attempting to feel better.

Slow going…

Peace

Lyrics:

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

I’ll fly a starship
Across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again…

These people are heroes in my heart and mind and soul… especially Johnny and Willy. I love them all.

Enjoy

Mystery of the Sphinx

Imperial Sevens

The Mystery of the Sphinx, introduced American viewers to the discovery by John Anthony West and Robert Schoch that the Great Sphinx of Giza might be thousands of years older than its assumed date of 2500 BC. Narrated by Charlton Heston, the documentary provides evidence that the ancient Egyptians possessed scientific knowledge unknown to us and carried on the wisdom tradition of an earlier lost civilization.

This is what caused all the ruckus!

Love me some ruckus.
