Friday

Yeah, it's been a week. We should have a live show Tuesday evening in some form. I don't think we'll be at full crew, but I'll get something posted that evening. Pinky swears.

It's rare that I enjoy a remix more than the original, but I can say here that's the case. The Foo Fighters would be proud, I think. No more babble. Have a good weekend.

Changes Afoot. . . And Not Afoot

Quick notes before I get into the Wednesday clip. Our plan on overhauling the website has been put on hold due to some life circumstances with the Almighty Webmaster. I don't have a timetable on when that will be ultimately finished (it has been started), but when I do, I'll update here.

There have also been some life changes for myself personally that could (not just yet, though) have an impact on how things are done here at the site. All this will likely get discussed on the next podcast, which we're planning on having sometime in September. I'm trying to figure out how to keep spinning all the plates without having them break. Don't worry, these are likely good changes ultimately, but it might disrupt things here in the short term. Again, I'll keep you posted.

Lastly, for those of you that were informed I was appearing on another local podcast to promote Circix tonight . . . I'm not sure if that's till happening. I am swimming in a sea of non-communication at the moment, but I don't have any evidence to suggest it's anything malicious. I don't have any reason to believe this is anything other than a case of miscommunication.

Anyway. Thank you for your patience. Here is a sheep racing a cyclist.

Yep, it's Monday

I did a quick and dirty Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS over the weekend. Yeah, I know it's a little played out at this point, but it's for a good cause. I will also link to Ben's .MOV file here if you want to see his. It far exceeds my own. Donation link in the YouTube description.

Happy Monday, everybody.

Friday

There's been an absence of metal from the Friday posts, so I'm rectifying that now. The influence from System of a Down is beyond obvious with the group below. I am more than ok with this. If you're not a metal guy but make it to the end of the video, you'll be surprised like the rest of us at how it ends. It starts off traditional metal, gets bizarre, then gets  . . . poppy.

Have a good weekend, everybody.

Motorcyclist Sticks The Landing In Accident

I've watched this a few times and I can't decide if it's staged or not. I'm leaning towards not. If it's not staged, then the title for this should fall into "Never Play The Lottery" territory. If it is staged though, it's still pretty cool. This guy's either lucky or good . . . perhaps both. If I keep watching dashcam footage, I'm eventually going to want one.

Skip to about the 18 second mark to get straight to the point.

The Blackest Black

NASA doesn't just get the cool toys now. They also get Johnny Cash-worthy colors. There is a version of black that absorbs 99.5 percent of light. It's so dark that "it's impossible to see when it's folded". NASA plans on using the material to help trap unwanted light around their telescopes, so they've shot the material to space for further testing.

Strangers Help People Stuck In Burning Car

There's a lot to despise about humanity. The service van that can't get around this incident fast enough is a good example. Look, however, at all the people that stopped to help out this poor woman and young child inside. The YouTube video description has more info on what happened if you're curious. The short version is that without any action on the strangers' part, this likely would have been fatal for the people inside the car. (via Jalopnik)

Friday

For this Friday entry, a group I don't necessarily care for all that much, a song I don't necessarily like all that much, but a message that I think's important. (Please note, I don't dislike it, just not my normal "thing"). Have a good weekend, everybody.

Bad Panoramics

Thanks to Ben. I needed a good pick me up. Horribly failed panoramics are a good start.

No Words

I said enough on my Twitter. Rest in peace.
