The second photo down. We all knew this is where we were going to end up ... [laughing] ...
Jump for Joy! Featuring Roland Tanglao ...
More from Roland’s shoot. Great stuff!
365/2: 263 ... BEAMS.
Saw these just off the end off the driveway. Sun through light rain.
Bicycling Mag: The $134 Miracle Bike.
Should probably have solid tires. For comparable ‘improvement in lives’, dig around and see what bicycles did for women in the late 1800’s. One could, squinting a bit hard, credit bicycles with the suffragette movement.
Vimeo: Destiny/Mars Opening Sequence.
Kinda fun. The ‘space M-16’ is kinda bizarre.
BarnFinds: Preservation Restoration - 1929 Ford Model AA.
“The cursing speed is 30 mph.” Sic. Great find. The Model T’s and A’s were also called ‘Tennessee Walking Trucks.’ You could put your sack of seed on the back, line it up with the tilled field, stick it in first, jump out and walk behind it to seed the fields.
SciAm: Einstein’s “Time Dilation” Prediction Verified.
A Continuous Lean.: The Escape Artist/Dennis Hopper in Taos.
At some point, I’ll take a drive up and pay my respects.
365/2: 262. Cool and crisp up in the Sangres.
The aspens are turning in patches at the highest elevations (10k here).
Return of the Cafe Racers: Kruz Triumph Daytona 1000.
Just watching the sunflowers wave in the wind as the sun goes down ...
365/2: 260. Car show on the Plaza tonight.
Still importing from the CF card. If I like some of the others, I’ll add ‘em here later.
Yeah, well ... day got away from me.
And supposedly there’s a car show on the Plaza. I have to go see. I’ll be back with pix later.
Busy morn. Links in afternoon.
Lots on the plate. Tootle along elsewhere for now.
365/2: 259. Odile ain’t doing much yet.
‘Course when I dare Nature, she comes back and pounds me to death. We’ll see tomorrow.
Later: For Throwback Thursday, from the ‘80’s.
Gawker: Iranians Sentenced to Six Months, 91 Lashes for Dancing to “Happy”.
Can we talk about implementing a worldwide “Prime Directive” now? Between IS and this. Those who want to go back in time and be medieval, well ... they can be medieval. Noone in the modern world does business with them. No arms. No supplies of food. No internet. No health advances. You break with the modern world, the modern world cuts you off until you choose to rejoin it. Enjoy the dentists.
Weezbo: Bizarre Bird-Inspired Stilettos by Masaya Kushino.
Weirdsville. Something else for Lady Gaga to fall off of.
Hollywood Reporter: Were ‘Longmire’ Viewers Too Long in the Tooth to Matter?
“Every second and a half an American turns 50, which means that in a very short time, we will be the largest demographic in the country — and with our longer life spans, we’re not going anywhere. It also just so happens that 50-plus-ers account for of 75% of disposable income in America.”
Crazy iOS8 question. How do you stop your iPad from alerting you when your iPhone is ringing?
One noisemaker is enough! Don’t need both ringing. It’s gonna drive me batty. I can’t find the preference.
SF New Mexican: LANL’s burst barrel has sister drum at WIPP.
Veritable time-bomb. My concern includes cousins still at LANL, sitting outdoors in canvas tents.
Slate: How do you differentiate good acting from bad acting?
iPPinka: Convertible Shelf Table.
Cool idea. As long as you’re not stocking books.
