Walk a mile in her shoes


In case you haven't seen it yet...

Season 7 of Game of Thrones 
starts three weeks from tomorrow

One day, in 1960...

It's 1960 and Bobby goes to pick up his date, Peggy Sue.

Peggy Sue's father answers the door and invites him in. He asks Bobby what they're planning to do on the date. Bobby politely responds that they'll probably just go to the malt shop or to a drive-in movie. The father suggests, "Why don't you kids go out and screw? I hear all of the kids are doing it."

Bobby is shocked. "Excuse me, sir?"

"Oh yeah, Peggy Sue really loves to screw. She'll screw all night if we let her."

Peggy Sue comes downstairs and announces that she's ready to go.

About 20 minutes later, a thoroughly disheveled Peggy Sue rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her, and screams at her father,

"Daddy! It’s the TWIST! It's called the TWIST!"

When you see it...

Eco Dive Center's annual Beach Bonfire

Okay, so our dive club hosted it's annual Beach Bonfire last night at Dockweiler Beach.

As is our custom, after the ritual Stacking of the Wood, Fearless Leader Ron put the finishing touches on the pyre.
We had a blast. I saw some friends I hadn't seen in awhile, and made some new ones.

All in all, a great night! (And, no one got busted this year, which was an added plus)

The Coolest Astronomical Photo You'll See All Week: "Cosmic Dots"

(click to enlarge)
The Hubble Space Telescope recently snapped this view of a colorful assortment of 100,000 stars residing in the core of the giant star cluster. The image reveals a small region inside the massive globular cluster Omega Centauri, which boasts nearly 10 million stars. The stars in the core of Omega Centauri are so crowded that they are estimated to average only 0.1 light years away from each other.

                    We take it for granted today,

TUNESMITH TUESDAY - "You Always Hurt The One You Love" by Spike Jones

A little background here.

The original recording of "You Always Hurt The One You Love" was released in 1945 by The Mills Brothers, and it made it to #1.

The following year, Spike Jones, an American musician and bandleader specializing in satirical arrangements of popular songs, did his own version.

It’s essentially the straight song with most of the parody being in the way the song is presented, in three parts:
      •   A slow, deliberate rendering of the first half of the song, with vocal by Carl Grayson, in a style imitating The Ink Spots. 

   A spoken rendering of the second half of the song by Red Ingle, with elaborations ("honey child, honey lamb, honey baby, honey doll, honey pie
") in a style reminiscent of The Ink Spots's bass singer, Orville "Hoppy" Jones.

   A frantically-paced reiteration of the full song, in "Dixieland" style, with vocal again by Carl Grayson, accompanied by shotguns and other typical Jonesian sound effects.

Harry Mills of the Mills Brothers reported not being bothered by the parody, since they were under the same management as Jones and were good friends
