Mean Mary – Thunder Song

Mean Mary
Oct 29, 2019

by Mary James and Jean James

I wandered far from hurt but found no place to go
Like a river in the desert, like a flower in the snow
I heard a sound from somewhere, unexplained, unreconciled
Not of earth, not of air, something more, something wild

Something longing, something lost, something wounded, something sad
Like a fool who paid the cost and lost all that she had
I heard the sound grow strange, and strong, so very strong
And it began to shift and change into a song

Some were made to sigh and cry but some will look up higher
Instead of always asking why they’ll set the world on fire
Sometimes we only lose to win to find where we belong
This pain in me, this hurt will be – will be my song

I wandered far to nowhere, I left my world behind
Just so I could go where days are not unkind
But the storm tried to follow me, stronger than before
The night tried to swallow me and the wind it waged a war

Colder, colder, blows this gale, colder grows the night
But more than trails are known to fail and more than wolves can bite
More than horses break their halters, more than birds take wing
If a voice wavers or falters sometimes the heart must sing

Some were made to sigh and cry but some will look up higher
Instead of always asking why they’ll set the world on fire
Sometimes we only lose to win to find where we belong
This cold, this wind, this storm has been – has been my song

Sometimes we only lose to win
To find where we belong
I had to learn to sing again
With thunder in my song

So sweet!

Mary is simply stunning.

Marilyn Monroe in 1946.

Marilyn Monroe had a completely unique face, didn’t she. Like Elvis, or JFK. Biopics never capture the charisma these people had.

Wow, what a Super Sweetheart…!

I don’t wanna be a fool in love and I don’t wanna be a lovin’ fool
I don’t wanna take advantage of you and I don’t want you to take me to school
When I walk, I walk your way, it’s like I’m in a ballet and I got happy feet
Like a kid with a lollipop, I skip and I hop, ‘cause your love is kinda sweet

I wanna little more, mi amore, and I want you to want a little more of me
I wanna take you to a sun-kissed land, where I can watch you tan and sip iced-tea
I wanna kiss and kiss some more on a white sugar shore with no shoes on our feet
You can splash and crash into me in a green apple sea where everything is … sweet

Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush
Lovin’ you can be, sweeter than a sugar rush
Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush
Lovin’ you can be, sweeter than a sugar rush

I wanna dance with you and kiss in the rain, Don’t wanna have to rein in the kiss
When there’s a storm in paradise it can be rather nice, just trust me on this
When the clouds start looking tough, burnt marshmallow fluff, we, will not retreat
We’ll kiss and kiss till we sneeze, as smug as we please, and as cute as we are sweet

Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush
Lovin’ you can be, sweeter than a sugar rush
Sweet like candy, hotter than a summer crush

Mmmm … like candy…

The Yi Qi

Art by Emily A. Willoughby

Yi qi – May 2015

Medium: Gouache & digital composite
Time taken: 20 hours
Published in: Wikipedia
High resolution: Purchase print

2-day gouache painting of Yi qi, the bizarre new membrane-winged scansoriopterygid. I wanted to see what the membrane would look like attaching further down on the body than in nearly every depiction I’ve seen so far, which show it attaching on the flank or at the armpit. I can’t get behind a leg-attachment point for this critter; it makes more sense to me that a long-legged animal would want its legs free and flexible. If a sprawling mobile hip-joint can be established for scansors, I’d potentially change my stance on that. Anyway, here’s a semi-new interpretation amidst a flood of recent restorations.

I’m definitely not convinced of powered flight for this critter, so here it is in an extended leap onto a log in pursuit of a Tiaojishan archisargid fly, Calosarugus.

Awesome! Loving it. =D

Dr Jane Goodall

North American Wood Ape Conservancy
Friday, September 27, 2013 at 12:22 PM

“I’m sure that they exist.”

On this date eleven years ago, Jane Goodall sent shockwaves through the scientific community and the public at large with comments made during an NPR interview.

Goodall is considered one the 20 most influential living scientists.

You can hear the relevant portion of the interview, where she expresses her conviction that an undiscovered species of ape exists in North America, at this link: is.gd/CekH33 (above)

Dr. Jane Goodall Speaks About Bigfoot-PGF Normal Speed

Oct 7, 2006

Here’s the radio call-in show in which Dr. Jane Goodall has a little something to say about Bigfoot. Listen carefully to what Dr. Goodall says, she is one of the world’s leading authorities on primates.

Dr. Jane Goodall being interviewed by Ira Flatow, National Public Radio’s “Science Friday,” September 27, 2002.

The color copy of the Patterson Footage that I found on the ‘net obviously has something wrong with it. It plays too fast. I believe the originator of that video clip may have assumed that the film was shot in 24fps (instead of the 16fps that it was probably shot in), resulting in the video being played 1/3 faster than natural speed. This creates an unrealistic motion in the creature’s gait. I found that very annoying so I tried to fix it in this video. I included the MK Davis ‘walking with bigfoot’ enhancement footage, also.

Davis is a real disappointment and has done quite a bit more harm than good to the field.

Dr. Goodall, on the other hand, is a personal hero and exemplifies what it is to be a scientist and a field researcher. I would bet a million bucks that she could do the same with Sasquatch as she has done with gorillas.

The creature is absolutely real and people need to come to terms with that. It is not at all an exotic concept and is an everyday world-wide occurrence in the forests of this planet.


Be well.

This was a real ad! No, really.

I’m told it was short-lived.

Lol, I bet!

But, isn’t it wonderful?

possible champ animal ©2019 Katy Elizabeth

This, folks, is an exceptionally exciting image.

It was captured by my friend, full-time cryptozoologist Katy Elizabeth, on the sonar unit in her research vessel “Kelpie.”

That shape is undeniably suggestive of an aquatic animal. It’s rather sizeable, as well. It is, after all is said and done, a mighty fine shape to these old eyes.

Champ SearchI am sure there will be more of these. It is terribly unfortunate for our collective, vision-based minds that the waters of Lake Champlain are murky with dense plant life, as it makes photography a serious challenge.

I am digging the apparent resolution on her sonar gizmo, though. It is mighty good.

Visit Champ Search, eh.

The photography issue is a cultural “big one,” for some, but it’s just going to have to be … we shall proceed like modern astronomers … who use wacky wavelengths, occultations and spectrometrics to capture their prey … hey, man, we can watch our prey up close in real time, eh, what! Ha! Haha!


Be well.
