This guy’s good! I’d not heard of him before.
This fantastic and uber-iconic image was taken on March 1st, 1982, by the Soviet spacecraft Venera 13. Venera had just landed on Venus and taken the first color images from the surface before it melted into a puddle shortly thereafter. Communist technology! Impressive that it lasted as long as it did.
The control panel that got us to the Moon!
Now that’s a thing o’ beauty, Cap’n!

Cream Farewell Concert 1968 (Complete in Real Time)
Published on Mar 2, 2017
Using all the best footage and audio I could find, I’ve assembled the correct song order and run-time of Cream’s farewell concert to present a near-complete recreation of the final concert from the Royal Albert Hall as possible in real time. I wanted to make it as close to feeling like you’re actually there in the RAH as I could, which is why all of the in-between song chatter and audience noise is still here. It of course is not perfect, I had to make do with reusing shots and filling in gaps where footage has either been lost, hasn’t resurfaced or was never used in the first place. But for the die-hard Cream fans, like myself, I hope you enjoy watching this as I had putting it together. Also many thanks to OxFan for helping me find a lot of the missing pieces here, thanks a lot.

Werewolf Creature with Grey Matted Fur Slams the Car Bonnet. New Account From Cannock 89s
Published on Mar 1, 2019
I was contacted through by a gentleman with his own tale to tell of a strange wolf like creature that he came upon one night driving the lanes of Staffordshire. I contacted him by phone and he allowed me to share the encounter here with you all. During the phone conversation I could tell he wasn’t the type of gent that would be spooked very easily or had any reason other than validation and perhaps some understanding as to what happened that night to report this incident to me. He went on to explain “this is an account from 86/87 that happened to me when I was driving along Camp Lane just off the A34 in the Cannock Chase area, It was around 1.30 am in January as we were driving along the dark country lane at night.”
Nice one, Deborah!
This particular large lycan certainly has an attitude not compatible with most other living creatures. Good thing it ended well, if a bit bent.

So sweet. I had seven of these. And a 1600-2. None as perfect as this one. These cars are just… fun. And reasonably practical, too!
“Wil jij een wedstrijdje doen met de politie?” Daar hoefde de driejarige Pomme niet lang over na te denken. IJverig stapte ze op haar fiets en ging ze de strijd tegen de politie aan, terwijl haar trotse papa de race filmde. Het spreekt natuurlijk voor zich wie gewonnen heeft… deze agenten mogen snel zijn, maar Pomme is hard op weg om de nieuwe Max Verstappen te worden!
“do you want to race with the police?” the three-Year-old pomme didn’t have to think about it long. Diligent she stepped on her bike and went on the fight against the police while her proud daddy filmed the race. It speaks of course for himself who won… these agents may be fast, but pomme is hard on the way to become the new max verstappen!

A few years ago, geologist Abderrazak El Albani and his team at the Institut de chimie des milieux et matériaux de Poitiers (CNRS/Université de Poitiers) discovered the oldest existing fossils of multicellular organisms in a deposit in Gabon. Located in the Franceville Basin, the deposit allowed scientists to re-date the appearance of multicellular life on Earth to 2.1 billion years—approximately 1.5 billion years earlier than previously thought (600 million). At the time, the researchers showed that this rich biodiversity co-occurred with a peak in dioxygenation of the atmosphere, and developed in a calm and shallow marine environment.
In this same geological deposit, the team has now uncovered the existence of fossilised traces of motility. This shows that certain multicellular organisms in this primitive marine ecosystem were sophisticated enough to move through its mud, rich in organic matter.
This news is such sweet music to my ears. The more ancient things are, the more I like them. This discovery… that there was a critter with legs that long ago fits in so well with my thoughts on the way things were. And in a way my thoughts on certain things in the here and now.
Thought you all would enjoy this beautiful picture of the area known as Monoceros, the Unicorn. It’s an area of star formation. The star forming region is known as NGC 2464, about 2,700 light years distance from Earth. The image covers an area of the sky that is 3/4 of a degree or 1.5 full moons.

The wonders of nature.
Those wonders will never… ever… cease to astound because nature never ends. No matter where, no matter when.

Such a sad thing.
16 years ago today I was one of the leaders of the mightiest demonstration in British history against the imminent invasion and occupation of Iraq.
