I'm Googoo For Gaga

Place Rammstein's "Du Hast" with Lady Gaga in a promo for anything involving horror (the television series American Horror Story in this case) and I won't be able to resist liking it.

I Am Not This Man

To prevent or clarify any confusion, I am NOT Kim Dotcom despite our similarities in regards to both of us being fat, in early middle age, having a little or a lot of German in us, and being named Kim.

I Can Fly With This

I'm not sure why I have not shared this here before but here is Daniel Kandi's "mashup"/remix of Oceanlab's "If I Could Fly On The Surface." This trance track really gets started at the 1:14 mark and goosebump central begins at the 2:42 mark. Enjoy your eargasms from this gem of aural sex.

Back By Popular Demand

In regards to this blog I've slacked off this year generally and in recent weeks especially. Lot's of distractions and dramas and traumas that account for it some of which I shall soon reveal here. However, in the meantime, I'm back and I hope you enjoy what follows.

Not So Hidden Valley Firestorm

For those of you wondering what happened following the end of the previous Valley Firestorm footage you can watch over two minutes of additional footage of how events transpired at that location (the field with the cows in it with fire rapidly approaching). That field is adjacent to an intersection where folks exiting Hidden Valley Lake were turning onto Highway 29. The traffic jam there with approaching firestorm menace can be seen at the end of this footage. Below is a link to the aforementioned footage to which this relates.

Valley Firestorm Uber Footage Trifecta Completed

Here is the third installment of awesome extended footage of the recent 76,067 acre Valley Fire in Lake County, CA, as captured by Flying Monkey Photography and associates, that I'm now addicted to viewing. It mixes some incredible firestorm-as-weather-event footage along with being archival footage of an historic event as well as captures well the sense of how a major disaster feels where the human systems in place fall far short of being able to adequately deal with a particular crisis, especially in the early hours of the extended attack on the first day.

The men and women first responders in this disaster did their best but the natural elements conspired to confound their best efforts and great ability and technology. This fire underscores the fact we are losing the fight against these increasingly vicious wildfires.

Note: up to four deaths in this fire now with the third highest level of destruction in California history with 1,910 structures destroyed and over 1,200 of those being homes. Note the ominously beautiful smoke cloud formations and structures and how the light plays off of and through them. Also note that starting at the 5:08 mark one is observing a large and powerful fire whirl/tornado with broad-scale circulation. If you are curious as to what happened after this footage ends in the location it was shot then visit Not So Hidden Valley Firestorm.

Junípero Serra Gets Canonized

Today, Pope Francis canonized Franciscan Missionary Junípero Serra, which is to say, the pope fired his ashes out of a canon in honor of his memory.
