Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green, blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, dies at 73

Peter Green, co-founder of rock band Fleetwood Mac, has died at age of 73, according to a law firm acting on behalf of his family.

“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep,” Swan Turton LLP, solicitors acting on behalf of his family, said in a statement.

The blues guitarist and singer-songwriter started the band alongside drummer Mick Fleetwood and bass guitarist John McVie in London in 1967. He left the group a few years later in 1969 after struggling with mental illness.

“For me, and every past and present member of Fleetwood Mac, losing Peter Green is monumental!” Mick Fleetwood said in a statement. “I will miss you, but rest easy your music lives on. I thank you for asking me to be your drummer all those years ago. We did good, and trail blazed one hell of a musical road for so many to enjoy.”

Green, considered by some as one of the best British blues guitarists of the 1960s, also composed hit songs like “Albatross” and “Black Magic Woman.”

Fleetwood told The Associated Press in 2017 that Green deserves most of the credit for the band’s success.

“Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” said Fleetwood, who described Green as a standout musician even in an era of great guitarists.

He was so fundamental to the band that in its early days it was called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, his band co-founder added.

Green became an influential blues rock guitarist, with Rolling Stone reporting that he’s considered one of the best 100 greatest guitarists ever.

Green also made his mark as a composer, with “Albatross,” “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman.”

“Oh Well”

The dreamy instrumental “Albatross” — which John Lennon said influenced his song “Sun King” on the Beatles album “Abbey Road” — reached the top of the U.K. singles chart in 1968.

Following his departure from Fleetwood Mac, Green returned for sporadic guest appearances.

He ultimately reclaimed his musical career when in 1998 he appeared in New York for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with his bandmates. He then continued to perform and tour over the years.

Divorced from Jane Samuels Green, Green is survived by their daughter, Rose Samuels-Greenbaum.

Tributes from other musicians poured forth Saturday.

“Sad to hear of Peter Green passing- one of the greats. RIP,” tweeted Geezer Butler, founding member of Black Sabbath.

Oh no, my hero, my god, has left this dimension to play in God’s own Blues band.

I am in mourning. I am so sad.

Really nice. These girls ROCK!

 

 
I love that we have the tech to do this, to gaze upon planets far, far from home. Yes, this is fantastic.

This just in [from]:

It’s the first ever direct image of two large exo planets around a star similar to our own. It’s pretty awesome to get to see a real image of planets outside our solar system.

www.eso.org…

The European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (ESO’s VLT) has taken the first ever image of a young, Sun-like star accompanied by two giant exoplanets. Images of systems with multiple exoplanets are extremely rare, and — until now — astronomers had never directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun. The observations can help astronomers understand how planets formed and evolved around our own Sun.

Even though astronomers have indirectly detected thousands of planets in our galaxy, only a tiny fraction of these exoplanets have been directly imaged,” says co-author Matthew Kenworthy, Associate Professor at Leiden University, adding that “direct observations are important in the search for environments that can support life.” The direct imaging of two or more exoplanets around the same star is even more rare; only two such systems have been directly observed so far, both around stars markedly different from our Sun. The new ESO’s VLT image is the first direct image of more than one exoplanet around a Sun-like star. ESO’s VLT was also the first telescope to directly image an exoplanet, back in 2004, when it captured a speck of light around a brown dwarf, a type of ‘failed’ star.

This image, captured by the SPHERE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, shows the star TYC 8998-760-1 accompanied by two giant exoplanets. This is the first time astronomers have directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun.
The image was captured by blocking the light from the young, Sun-like star (on the top left corner) using a coronagraph, which allows for the fainter planets to be detected. The bright and dark rings we see on the star’s image are optical artefacts. The two planets are visible as two bright dots in the centre and bottom right of the frame.

This image, captured by the SPHERE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, shows the star TYC 8998-760-1 accompanied by two giant exoplanets, TYC 8998-760-1b and TYC 8998-760-1c. This is the first time astronomers have directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun. The two planets are visible as two bright dots in the centre (TYC 8998-760-1b) and bottom right (TYC 8998-760-1c) of the frame, noted by arrows. Other bright dots, which are background stars, are visible in the image as well. By taking different images at different times, the team were able to distinguish the planets from the background stars.    The image was captured by blocking the light from the young, Sun-like star (top-left of centre) using a coronagraph, which allows for the fainter planets to be detected. The bright and dark rings we see on the star’s image are optical artefacts.

Bravo, boffins, jolly good show, what?!

It won’t be long now till we’re out there. I am sure of it. Toddlers today will live it.

Should we survive, of course.

Take a ride on the Lunar Rover as it traverses the Moon in 60fps restored footage.
The clarity of the restored images and frame rate make it look like it was filmed yesterday.

A photo and film restoration specialist, who goes by the name of DutchSteamMachine, has worked some AI magic to enhance original Apollo film, creating strikingly clear and vivid video clips and images.

“I really wanted to provide an experience on this old footage that has not been seen before,” he told Universe Today.

Take a look at this enhanced footage from an Apollo 16 lunar rover traverse with Charlie Duke and John Young, where the footage that was originally shot with 12 frames per second (FPS) has been increased to 60 FPS:

15-Year-Old Angelina Jolie During One Of Her First Photoshoots (Interview)

Rūta Grašytė
Community member

If you haven’t heard who Angelina Jolie is, you’ve probably lived under a rock for past couple decades (no offense if you did). The famous 43-year-old actress has been gracing our silver screens for more than two decades, causing boys and girls alike celebrity crushes. Though we all know the iconic Jolie looks, not many of us have seen how she has looked in her teens. To unveil this secret, we have decided to share a collection of modeling photos and headshots taken by photographer Harry Langdon almost 30 years ago at one of Jolie’s first photo shoots. She was only a 15 year old at that time, but the photographer didn’t know that. He was told she was 18.

“Normally before I begin a new session I find out more about the background of a new client. My Representative that time, withheld the beautiful girl‘s age from me since they thought if I knew, that might inhibit the way I worked with her. I was told and thought she was 18, and judging from her sensuality, it was a matter of very quickly gaining her trust. Never coming on in any way, because once a photographer crosses that forbidden line, the subject will become inhibited. So Angelina just ‘came on to the camera.’ No restrictions. I just kept my cool and allowed her to perform. Hardly saying any more than “turn right, turn left.” No conversation was necessary.” – Harry told Bored Panda.

Don’t forget to scroll down for beautiful pictures of when Angelina Jolie’s young looks adorned Harry Langdon’s camera.

Black Humanoid Figure Caught Descending Upon A Burbank Neighbourhood. May 6, 2019

The Hidden Underbelly 2.0
May 12, 2019

This footage was taken by Pablo Morales and while outside with his family they notice a dark figure moving in the sky. Pablo Morales states “it was really cloudy and there was thunder earlier in the day” and after this entity left his view he went to where he believed it may have landed only to find nothing, Pablo Morales said “I went, but found no balloons or trash or anything that could have been that big.” This is just my opinion.. I believe that this could be a Fallen Angel as how creepy it looked especially when it went out of view, But this is just my views on this footage and as always i leave it up to you guys…

Many thanks to Pablo Morales for allowing me the use of his footage & to view the unedited video www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZUJH… [Note: Below – Ed.]

This is, of course, more than likely to be just balloons, but hey, you never know, eh. Could be CGI as well. The object is mighty rigid for allegedly being a living thing. The initial emergence from the cloud is well done.

I like it. Got that look to it. It is suitably weird, for sure.

This Rare 1894 Photograph Shows a Young Indigenous Woman Smiling at the Viewer
By Megan Cooper on June 9, 2020

In the early age of photography, portraits of people were few and far between, but they had one thing in common: serious faces. Nowadays, you’d expect to see an emotionless face in these old-timey photographs, which is why the recent discovery of an image of a young woman smiling from nearly 130 years ago is really unusual and utterly fascinating. The photograph taken in 1894, which features a Native American girl named O-o-dee of the Kiowa people, was found at an auction in 2019 and is now protected by the Smithsonian Institute. Since its discovery in the George W. Brentz collection, O-o-dee’s bright smile has captivated people around the world via social media. One Redditor comments, “Wow. What a smile can do. Suddenly it looks like this photo was taken a lot more recently.” Another says, “Very cool picture. I think this is the first old picture I’ve seen of someone smiling.”

So why is it that most photos from this era feature straight-faced people? There are many theories as to why people’s faces appear stern and dour in these historic photographs. While the long exposure times for capturing historic photographs did make smiling impractical—imagine holding a smile for more than thirty seconds—it’s not the only reason that our great-grandparents kept their faces neutral. In the late 19th century, the photographic arts took inspiration from portrait painting, so when people sat for photographs they emulated the resolute faces of the portraits they saw.

O-o-dee’s portrait differs from this tradition, and she points a bright smile at the viewer. Her traditional buckskin dress decorated with elk bone honors her indigenous roots, and displays the craftsmanship of the Kiowa tribe. Her smile is truly effervescent. At a quick glance, her portrait would look right at home on any family’s mantle. What makes this photograph even more special is that it documents a person from a group whose stories have long been lost to the historical record. Indigenous women continue to be woefully underrepresented in the historical narrative, and they often have their voices drowned out by those of the more powerful communities around them. Through O-o-dee’s smiling face, we get to see a glimpse into the lives of a group of people who have had so much taken away from them, and yet have continued to persevere.

Fantabulous!

And what a cutie!

 

As regulars know, I am a major fan and proponent of giant, cryptozoological spiders. Before you moan, note that I know all about the alleged rules on how big a spider’s airways can grow. You know what? I call BS. Shenanigans, too. So there. Mother Nature cares not what humans say she cannot do.

So here, is a picture of a Brown Recluse spider, which the cryptid spotted was said to resemble. Their bodies are only an inch long, so, not what we seek.brown recluse spiderAnd here, just for illustration, for a “spidey” feel, eh, is a picture of a Wolf Spider, from Michigan. It’s certainly big by “normal” everyday standards, at about four (4) inches for the leg span.wolf spider michigan

As you will soon see, by reading the story, these two images clearly have nothing whatsoever to do with the feature creature spotted by the two eyewitnesses.

Okay, so here we go

MASSIVE Spider in the Treetops of Michigan

After discovering this subreddit, it had brought back a memory of mine from almost 10 years ago. I am not sure if this is the right place to post about this, but I’ll start here anyways because this is super strange to me. I”ll keep this as short as possible.

When I was around 9 or 10 years old, me, my father, his girlfriend, my two brothers and sister all went on a trip to go fishing. My dad is a former Marine, he’s an avid hunter and a big outdoorsman, so whenever the opportunity presented itself, he’d take us to go fishing, camping, etc.

At the time, my father lived in Taylor, which is a city in Wayne county Michigan. To take this fishing trip, we had to drive one or two hours away from his house to get to the spot we were going. Unfortunately, when I was a kid, I didn’t care about WHERE we were going, just as long as we got there and I didn’t have to sit in the car anymore, I’d be satisfied, so I don’t remember the name of the place we were at or it’s location.

We were one of the only people there, it was pretty empty, and it didn’t even seem like your usual fishing spot. There was a parking area, and then a long dirt road to the place we’d be fishing at. The place was built pretty much in the woods, we were surrounded by nothing but trees. When we arrived, I got out of the car after we parked and was looking around the place. I almost immediately saw something large moving into the woods infront of me in the trees, I only saw its legs at first though, so I couldn’t be sure of what I saw. It had long, brown legs, looked just like a spider, only it was bigger than any spider I’ve ever seen or heard about, so I ruled that out and decided not to tell anyone because I didn’t think anyone would believe me anyways.

My dad decided that, before we brought all of our rods and coolers to the water, he’d go down and check the area out first to let us know it was alright. A little bit down the path, he runs into a snake on the road, which he tells us about after he returns and says that we can go to the water now. Anyways, at this point, nothing unusual happens for the rest of the time. We fish for a while, and when we finish, we head back to the car.

While we’re packing up at the car, me and my oldest brother, he’s 4 years older than me, are standing next to each other at the car door. I was facing the car, and he was facing towards me, when he says “Oh my god look at that spider it’s really fucking big”. I turn around, and sure enough, the exact same thing I saw before was in the trees again, pretty much in the same spot, crawling up the tree. When I say that this spider was massive, it was MASSIVE. It was definitely bigger than a squirrel, was brown in color, didn’t have hair on it that I could see, and had really long bony legs. It looked like a brown recluse, only 100 times bigger. From our car, to the trees that the spider was at, was at least 20 or more feet away, and we could see this thing clear as day moving in the trees. My brother seeing it too is the only reason I know that i’m not crazy. I had no explanation for what we saw, but we knew we saw it so we just assumed that there were big spiders in michigan… which is not the case. I didn’t know this until recently, but the biggest spiders in Michigan are wolf spiders, which can get big, but only to the size of your hand. What we saw was definitely way larger. To give a comparison, it was probably the size of a skunk, or a small dog. It didn’t move very fast, but im sure that it could. That was the first and last time I have ever witnessed this.

If anyone has any sort of explanation for this or clue as to what we may have seen this day, please let me know… thanks

Cryptozoology rocks.

I simply can’t get enough.
