The wonderful Troodon, otherwise known as the Georgia Raptor.

I love raptors. I want to be one when I grow up.

RIP Peter Green (1946-2020)

Just a note to mention that Peter didn’t at all like the band being called “Peter Green’s..,” to him it was just “Fleetwood Mac.”

 

102 y/o Dancer Sees Herself on Film for the First Time

Tenfresh
Apr 20, 2015

UPDATE: Alice passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016. She spent the last day of her life in good spirits, enjoying listening to music and having her mail read to her. Thank you to all the thousands of fans who sent in cards, flowers, and art. You truly gave her deep joy and meaning in the last years of her life!

Alice Barker was a chorus line dancer during the Harlem Renaissance of the the 1930s and 40s. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo, Cotton Club, The Zanzibar Club, and on Broadway—with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, and Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. Although she danced in numerous movies, commercials and TV shows, she had never seen any of them, and all of her photographs and memorabilia had been lost over the years.

After years of searching we found three “Soundies” Alice appeared in and were finally able to show them to her — she had never seen herself in motion in her life!

You can learn more about Alice at the little website we’ve set up for her: www.alicebarkernotbaker.com/

All of Alice’s films from this video are collected here: youtu.be/rpg5D0AAA2w

For more info about the dancers of the Harlem Renaissance, we recommend the lovely documentary “Been Rich All My Life” —several of the women in the film danced with Alice back in the day!

A little more about the who’s who here: “We” are friends of Alice who searched for the films and made this video. I’m David Shuff, a volunteer who visits the home with my therapy dog Katie, and have known Alice for 8 years. The woman in the video is Gail Campbell, a recreation therapist (and an amazing one at that!). She never gave up on finding Alice’s films, and uncovered the first piece of the puzzle that lead to us finding them — which was Alicia Thompson; a historian of black female performers who had been looking for Alice for years (her site is forclassicmovieloversonly.trip… and her YouTube channel is “MusicandDancing4Ever”). She told us that Alice was in films called ‘soundies’.

Using that clue I found jazz historian Mark Cantor of jazz-on-film.com and he was able to send us three of Alice’s soundies from his collection. Shortly afterwards Alicia got us a few more films.

This video was filmed on cellphones (and almost as an afterthought!) by my friends Darin Tatum and Tom Hunt.

This is so beautiful…

I was so, so deeply into this twenty years ago when it first appeared on the interwebz. There was an excellent site, run by an eyewitness, wherein the photos of the critters taken by the friend* were posted and the encounters described, but it has been lost to history for many years now.

  • Read Karl’s article above for all the details. Nobody gets down to the heart of a story like Karl.

I would love to just stake out different places in the most likely areas for a couple or three weeks each till my gear recorded something good. Naturally, I do not think for a second that this scenario could ever exist in my reality. Sigh.

MonsterQuest: MONSTER SPIDERS (S2, E17) | Full Episode | History

HISTORY
Jun 24, 2020

Join an expedition into the wilderness of South America on the hunt for a monster-sized predatory spider. In the forests of Venezuela there are reports of spiders big enough to hunt and eat a small dog, in Season 2, Episode 17, “Monster Spiders.”

“MonsterQuest” takes a scientific look at reported sightings of cryptozoological creatures (cryptids) and paranormal entities around the world, including the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and werewolves.

The deep fear within the hearts of the locals is evident and a very supportive production is a rather refreshing occurrence.

mars mic launch

Tomorrow, July 30 at approximately 7:50 a.m. EDT, NASA is planning to launch a mission to take the Perseverance rover to Mars. Settled among the millions of dollars of high-tech space equipment is a DPA 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone, an MMA-A Digital Audio Interface and an MMP-G Modular Active Cable, which will act as an ultra-transparent preamplifier.

dpaThe off-the-shelf microphone and audio interface will be the rover’s “ears” and the auditory part of the “brain” during the demanding and dangerous entry, descent and landing (EDL) part of the trip. The microphone’s mission is to capture sounds as the rover enters the Martian atmosphere and makes its way down to the planet surface.

Watch history in the making, live!

Follow the countdown and make sure to check out the other fun and educational information on NASA’s Mars 2020 mission page. You can even watch NASA’s Perseverance rover Launch to Mars on the NASA YouTube channel.

Let’s help give the 4006 (and the entire Perseverance rover) a proper send off and wish it well on its long and lonely 7-month journey!

Fresno Nightcrawlers

A little ways back someone made a few short clips of what were termed the “Fresno Nightcrawlers.” They just looked so ridiculously “right” that I loved them and do just because they are the most stylish proposals in memory.

Be well.

Ta da, the logo of the new United States Space Force… it’s more than a bit Star Trekkie; and the motto of the new Force is – “Semper Supra” (Always Above)…

which is is somewhat similar to the National Reconnaissance Office’s motto “Supra Et Ultra” (Above & Beyond).

“Nightswimming deserves a quiet night

I’m not sure all these people understand

It’s not like years ago

The fear of getting caught

Of recklessness and water

They cannot see me naked

These things, they go away

Replaced by everyday”

___Night Swimming, REM

I was noticing a bit ago, when the sun started going down over my family’s home that it looked an awful lot like the sky Nessie is under in this beautiful piece by Andy Pitts. No, the colors aren’t the same but the feeling is. Hot summer days sure make for the most beautiful evenings. Beautiful colors, night swimming with your favorite partner and just being…

I hope your day was amazing…💞
