Flotsam and Jetsam

"If I’m ever arguing with her mom, I just look down and remind myself that this beautiful woman gave me this beautiful child. And this child doesn’t care who’s right or who’s wrong, all she cares about is that mommy and daddy are there."

This is so incredibly true.

Ladies and gentlemen, what you see before you is something that I don’t think has ever been done before. This is a gif of Tuesday’s Lunar Eclipse….seen from the orbit of Mercury.In the image, the Moon can be seen slowly disappearing into Earth’s shadow over the course of an hour. The series of 31 images were taken by the narrow-angle camera on Messenger, orbiting high above Mercury. The Earth and Moon were about 66 million miles from the spacecraft at the time of the Eclipse. In the raw image, Earth is about five pixels across, and the Moon is just over one. The luminosity of the Moon was increased by a factor of 25 in order to make it more visible.While we’ve seen a solar eclipse from the Mir space station before, and a solar eclipse from lunar orbit, I believe this is the first time any eclipse has been seen from the perspective of another planetary body. Absolutely stunning. The full article by the Planetary Society is here.

so, a song is now out in the universe that has a verse in it about me. a lot of people are talking about it but don’t know about me. it feels…strange.

I can empathize. An ex-girlfriend’s punk band wrote a thinly-veiled slightly derogatory song about a “hippie-boy” after we broke up. I wasn’t sure whether to be flattered or embarrassed.

Ramblin’ Jack Elliott :: If I Were A Carpenter (Johnny Cash Show)

Stunningly beautiful. Laura Marling & Eddie Berman cover “Like a Rolling Stone”

Gillian Welch & David Rawlings - Wichita
462 plays

Perhaps my favorite bluegrass-style tune they do, here’s a live rendition of “Wichita” by Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings.

Gillian is easily one of the greatest songwriters of her generation.

Yes, this album is as good as everyone says it is: @hissgldnmssr “Lateness of Dancers”
