Golden Earring — Twilight Zone.
What’s on your mind?
Hi, Suze! Have I got the zed?
hey tejan — you sure did! how’s texas tonight?
Actually, I really, really am on my way to bed. But I saw you had your post up, and came by to say hi, and g’nite, too.
How you doing?
Out of limits.
i’m doing ok :) thanks…. always good to see your fonts — even if you are doing a drive by
Texas is warm. Less warm than yesterday – only 83. Set a record of 95 yesterday…since 1892, I think. Not that it hasn’t been warmer than 95 this early, just not on this date.
Rain, hopefully, coming: downstairs Kit says it has arrived in Austin, so with luck, it’ll be here soon. We are very much still in drought.
cuing the scary music *laughing* hey cmauk — how’s cleveland tonight?
tis soggy here… first decent sized storm in a while. my spring bulbs are about ready to burst open :)
Soggy – yuck, but spring bulbs! Yes!
I must drive south tomorrow, and expect to see wildflowers popping up. Especially if the rain gets there. There were a few early arrivals a couple weeks ago, so with rain and warmth, they should start busting out about…now.
Ah, eyelids getting heavy. Better go hit the sack. Have a lovely night, everyone.
The thing that has nawed at me since the early aftermath days of 911 was the rush by the Bush Administration to shovel millions of dollars at the families of those killed in the twin towers, though I don’t begrudge the money given to those families. But, when has the government ever done this in any act of terrorism here or abroad before 911? It always seemed to me that it was like these wealthy NeoCons were panicking to both wash the incriminating blood off their own hands through gifting all that money, and buy silence from those widowed as a necessary requirement to nip in the bud any calls to scrutinize the Bush Administration’s story of what happened. It’s like for someone who committed some great sin against an unaware other doing some great deed for that other in order to be able to make manageable the guilt for the awful thing done….
Aloha Suz and lln pups…! That’s one of my fave 80′s tunes, Suz…! Well, I’m up top tonite…! ;-)
hey the robert — how’s southern pa tonight?
aloha ct — how’s it on top the mt tonight? glad ya got up there :)
Cold and some snow.
funny how people are rethinking the last ten or twelve years with the anniversary of the “war against WMD’s (not)”.
A huge percentage of Americans believe that we haven’t gotten the entire story about 911.
is this the last of your winter or can you still get snow later in spring?
They found our famous groundhog this afternoon, dead from an apparently self inflicted gunshot wound….
hey senator — how’s sac tonight?
It’s right at the freezing point, with the temps dropping steadily since the Sun just set, and it’s not too windy so far…!
*laughing* he totally blew the forecast en?
And The Ventures did a cover as well. I like their original better than any of the re-records.
Got to go tho. My computer wants to install some updates ad restart.
its that wind that ya gotta watch out for… *shiver*
*heh* Blame it on climate change…! ;-)
g’nite cmauk — thanks for stopping by tonight
Oh…I remember one year when I was young we had snow in June.
He knew he couldn’t outrun the size of the mob out to hang him, so he did himself in just to disappoint us all one more time….
its that one more time that stings…
Texas Hill Country: where there are no hills above about 1200 ft. in elevation but nobody cares because the barbecue is ” good as hell ” and the dance hall in Groene, rocks. Liked your choice of music because it reminded me of my first business. I opened up the first Air Guitar Repair Store in the Midwest in 1983. Songs like that made me a fortune. So, I opened a 2nd one, and, then franchised. But my quality control went to shit. Closed every store within about 18 months. Found out there’s lots of air guitars beyond repair and a man’s got to know his limitations.
hey wynota – how ya doing tonight? what a kewl story – glad ya liked the tune
95 in Texas yesterday?!
that’s too dayam hot…
certainly is. I am going to New Orleans next week. Hope is cools down.
from one of the local weather doods: Spring arrives Wed. with wind, threat of snow
*heh* Air Guitar repair shops…! ;-)
how long ya gonna be down there for? its been a while iirc since your last trip there
I was there a year ago in November. I will be there only ten days this time.
Gonna eat till I pop like a tick.
Elizabeth Colbert won the Dem primary in South Carolina….
with 1,000 drums — iirc i featured this one up top in 08 or so
Now if only she’d win the general…! ;-)
isn’t that what you are supposed to do when ya go ‘home’? i don’t know why i thought it had been a couple years — might have something to do with all those heavy drugs i was on last year — i have huge gaps and there are a lotta blurs in my memory
who is she gonna go up against from the gop?
Sanford got 38 percent of the vote, but because he didn’t get 50 percent, he’ll have to go into a runoff with his 13 percent closest challenger in April. Colbert got 96 percent of the dem vote….
sweet! tis a good sign that mr hike the appalachia trail didn’t get over 50%
Good evening Suz and lln pups.! Love the song, Suz.! That and radar love both.
hey past — so glad ya enjoyed them. how’s slc tonight?
dong dong diki diki dong
Markfromireland emailed me this clip recently… Pope Francis joking with the cardinals…
A thousand drums, damn, seems like overkill what with amps and stuff.
I remember a story I read once about a symphonic engineer. The management brought him in when times were tough to make it more efficient.
No more whole and half notes, ended the hemidemisemiquaver, standardized everything at quarter notes.
New depreciation policies so they wouldn’t have to play on 300 year old violins
I forget the other improvements.
Always have enjoyed this song though.
nope, still diapers *laughing*
hey strat — how ya been? so glad ya enjoyed it
Clear skies, low 30′s tonight. In the high 50′s today, but cooled off quick at sundown. Me and another guy stayed late at work tonight, had to go up to Red Butte Amphitheater in the foothills to mock up some lighting for a sculpture. Did that from 8 to 9 tonight, and we were freezing by the time we left.
hope you had a hot toddy to warm ya up when ya got home
Doing okay. got a nice inspection to do tomorrow.
I’ve thought Twilight Zone paired nicely with Don’t Fear the Reaper”
Still needs more cowbell, though.
ohhhh well played dood…
did have a nice hot cup of coffee when I got home, held the warm cup in both hands to warm them up. Forgot to show you Red Butte Amphitheater – outdoor concert venue.
how beautiful! i love outdoor concert amphitheaters…. the sound is so good and it looks like there is plenty of eye candy to keep ya occupied until the show starts
Tuning air guitars is a bitch; pardon my French ladies, if you don’t mind me sayin’. Some days I’d get an ear full. I spread myself to thin and began frettin’ about key decisions. So, a needle pullin’ thread, brought me back to dough. Which I couldn’t raise in enough quantity to keep everyone on the same page. So to speak.
Those are the kinds of puns that my daughter smacks me for. Doesn’t stop me.
Told her the other day it was hard to find a good ninja these days. Smack!
i loved all the kids faces – so focused!
token’s giving me the evil eye so i guess i had better take him out to save a blade of grass. thank you for letting me hang out here with you tonight and for spending part of your evening here.
especially that stretch where they’re all clacking their drumsticks together for two or three minutes, in perfect timing with each other.
Sleep well, Suz.!
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
Appropriate song for this anniversary. That’s how I felt 10 years ago, as the media parroted back the patently absurd talking points of the Bushies verbatim, and laughed off anyone who had real facts.
thanks ew — i thought so too…
